Smash & Grab by Amy Christine Parker
Smash & Grab - Amy Christine Parker
Are you looking for a fun read that will fly by? I'd definitely consider picking up a copy of Smash & Grab! Seriously, this book was a ton of fun to read. If you're willing to suspend disbelief for a bit, and just fall into the story head first, you're going to love reading this. Getting caught up in dangerous stunts and crazy heists is a really pleasant way to spend a few hours.
 
First off, I fell pretty hard for Lexi and Christian. As I said above, you kind of have to suspend disbelief a little bit to be able to fully appreciate their epic stories. Lexi is the rich girl, whose life is on the brink of falling apart. She seeks adrenaline rushes to deal with her anxiety, and does some fairly intense stuff. Base jumping terrifies me, but Lexi makes it sound like a walk in the park. Christian is the boy whose circumstances have kept his family down. His mom works hard to make money, he works hard to get good grades so he can get into college, but both of those things just aren't paying the bills. So he robs banks, to ensure his family's safety and cash flow.
 
These two were so different, but I could tell right from the start that Parker was working hard to make their chemistry real. In fact, the first time these two actually interacted I saw some sparks! It's wonderful when a story actually cares about making a relationship real, even if in this case the story itself might be a little over the top. The other wonderful part was that the romance aspect of this isn't even overwhelming. The focus is on Lexi, Christian, and the heist they need to pull off. If there's romance along the way, well that's just how it works.
 
My only real complaint about Smash & Grab was the ending. I had so much fun the entire ride, but that ending just wrapped things up much too succinctly and easily. It was a little too perfect to feel realistic. I mean, obviously the entire book is a bit like that. Christian and his buddies make robbing a bank feel like anyone could do it. Like it's just a small thing you do, and then escape. I was willing to let go of all that though, because I was enjoying the ride. I just wish the ending had a little more tension, after all the build up.
 
Still, this is a really solid read! As I said, if you're looking for something action packed and full of potential, this is one to add to your TBR.

Well, June is done. Today is my birthday, which means it's the first day of July! Huzzah! This has always been my favorite month. Birthday celebrations, fireworks, big barbeques, and long, warm evenings. I'm so very ready for all of that.

 

 

Spongebob here sums up how I feel about my June reading. With the exception of one book, which I feel will likely languish for a long while since it's SO slow, I finished my June TBR. Woohoo!

 

As you can see above, I took on a lot of review books for July. That's not even all of them, just the ones I'm most looking forward to :). *wipes brow* I have a good feeling though. Let's hope some of these are gems!

Super Smash Bros – Nintendo3DS

Je ne pensais jamais intenses batailles multijoueurs à quatre joueurs de «Smash Bros. avait besoin de plus de combattants, mais des bagarres de huit joueurs devenu un de mes modes préférés dans Super Smash Bros. pour Wii U. Huit joueurs batailles sont local uniquement, ce qui est un malheureuse limitation, mais si vous obtenez un groupe d’amis vous remplirez ces grandes arènes, vibrantly colorées avec une pure folie qui se passe dans tous les coins. Chaque personnage affiche une personnalité fantastique dans le combat, en tirant sur une histoire riche de telecharger nintendo 3ds jeu torrents dizaines de différents jeux bien-aimés. Comme je frappe, esquiver, bloquer, et tisser à travers sept autres combattants, un match construit jusqu’à un point culminant qui est vraiment amusant, chaque fois. Cela représente Super Smash Bros. pour Wii U dans son ensemble: il est plus grand que jamais, mais reste laser focalisé sur l’action finement équilibré qui rend cette série légendaire de jeu de combat.

OMFG!!

Can I just state, for the record, how un-fuckably-frustrating it is to do any kind of design change on the blog here? I tender my most sincere apologies to Blogger for bitching this morning when I was creating my new design over there. Because trying to do anything here is like comparing the USS Enterprise NC-1701E to a horse and buggy as a mode of transportation. Or an air-powered nail gun to a rock. Dial up to OC192. You get the idea.

 

The blog here should be user friendly. I am not a tech wizard, but I do know a little bit and I can't get anything right. NOTHING! And it's un-fucking-believably s-l-o-w. I have to step away because I'm so close to doing a Hulk smash.

Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up
Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up - Derek Charm,Jeremy Whitley,Sean E. Williams

I read another book in this series last year: Super Secret Crisis War. And since the Powerpuff Girls always were my favourite Cartoon Network series, I was glad to see they made a sequel.

 

I enjoyed this story even more (I always like the nostalgic feeling I get from reading it, it's a trip down memory lane for me) but the story in this one was more coherent and there was a better explanation for there being different universes with different drawing styles. All the favourite characters make their appearances but the focus lays on the Powerpuff Girls and Dexter and his sister.

 

I would like to read more of their joint adventures!

 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
