Realistic look at an overweight girl dealing with self image and trying to lose weight.

I wanted to read this one because I am overweight myself and figured that I would connect with Ann. I was right, I understood her battles with self-control, letting food control my thinking and schedule, as well as wanting to be thin but not being able...

Good series ending, I was satisfied with the character development and plot resolution.

I wanted to read this one because I have enjoyed Addie and Eva in the previous series. Going in I really didn't remember a whole lot of this one. With the hybrids there were double the characters to...

Good addition to Easy.

I wanted to read Breakable because I loved Easy, the romance, chemistry and emotion. It has been awhile since I read the first, which is good because its the same story, we just get Landon's perspective. I fell just...

Good thriller with slow burn romance.

Honestly, at first, I wasn't planning to read Black Ice, but when I got a copy from Simon Teen and read the back cover, which is different from the inside flap which is GR synopsis above, I decided to give it a try. I am glad...

Enjoyed their journey and Lucy's character growth.

I wanted to read In a Handful of Dust since I devoured Not a Drop to Drink. Ten years have passed and Lucy is a teenager now. She is a helper and unlike Lynn she is more of a people person, wanting to be around and...

Powerful message delivered by a strong young lady.

This must be my week of branching out from what I usually read and being rewarded. First I tried and liked a book narrated in poetry, and now a memoir. These types of reads aren't usually what I go searching for, though I have read some on...

Good ending to a series I loved, hard saying goodbye to Ash and this swoony romance.

This has been a series that I have loved and sought out, so of course I was nervous going into it but had every faith that Richards would do an amazing job. Honestly, going in, I only remembered the basics and that Ash was an amazing...

Fun, fast and light with slow romance that was sweet.

I wanted to read On The Fence because I was in the need for a summery read plus the fact that I have liked Kasie West's characters and writing style from her paranormal books. The dynamic between Charlie,...

Satisfying conclusion

I wanted to read Evertrue because I enjoyed the first two, and I want to see more of the story between Jack and Nikki, if Cole is really as bad as he seemed from last book, if everlivings will continue to exist when Nikki is done...

Good second book that kept my attention.

I wanted to read this one because I enjoyed the romance with Nikki and Jack in the first as well as the premise and nothing like the second books, lol. This one actually managed to keep going from the last and although...

Smart and easy to root for heroine.

I wanted to read this one because I read Parallel by Lauren Miller and really enjoyed. Even if she wasn't an author I had previously read, I would have still picked it up. I like the ideas of fate and destiny and if something can change it....

For me, took until Ch. 3-4 to get fully into the story then it carried me away.

I wanted to read Salvage I'll admit, the cover caught my eye. Its pretty and the moon being so close to the water and the girl on the beach. I just want to know what it going on. Then I read the synopsis and saw a...
