Finally Falling
Finally Falling - Raleigh Ruebins Finally Falling - Raleigh Ruebins OK gonna start this review by just using my status updates I posted while reading this book as I think that will best convey my feelings on it as I went along.
I usually like "Friends to Lovers" stories... but even though I love Devin and Russ it is just taking way too long for these knuckleheads to tell each other what they are feeling. I mean they are beyond clueless... I am all for anticipation and all but I am 50% done and no romance yet. Tempts me to just skim a few chapters till the romance starts. But I'll be good and wait for it! Russ is acting like he is 18 not in his thirties... or actually more like a child who rather than dealing with the situation hides under the bed. I am not buying that he would have reacted this way, even with his insecurities...
I just don't get the fact that this is supposed to be romance, cuz instead of Devin and Russ dating... Russ runs away. These are adults and supposedly friends, yet they apparently can't even communicate with one another. Too much unnecessary angst and stupidity... Might just DNF this one, the author has 15% to get their characters' head out of their asses or I'm done! 75% - Devin and Russ are still miserable and NOT together... Yah know if the couple in the book are only actually together and happy for like less than 25% of a book that is NOT romantic... it's more like torture!
So now to wrap it up, I absolutely loves the first 25% and the last 25% of this book... the middle 50% while well written was so full of angst and stupidity by the MCs that it was pure, unadulturated torture. If I could have reached into my Kindle slapped those two I would have. I know the author did her best to try and make it believable, but if your in your 30s and still acting like an immature teenager you need serious help or you should not be dating anyone! So what it all boils down to is my giving this book 3 stars, cuz 50% of it was awesome... so I rounded up a 2.5 to 3.

You're Finally Here!
You're Finally Here! - Mélanie Watt

"You're Finally Here", by Melanie Watt is one of the newest books to my collection. This books main message is centered around waiting, but can be used for other topics as well. The bunny in the story has been waiting forever for his reader to finally arrive, and he lets you know just how upset he is with you for making him wait so long! At the end he draws up a contract for the reader to sign telling him you will stay forever! This story is funny and children will love it. "You're Finally Here" can be used as a first day back story to read to your students to let them know how happy you are that they are in your classroom and that you have waited all summer for them to get to your class! Before the first day you could type up a "contract" for the students to sign. It could be about classroom rules or things that you expect from your students or anything you chose to make it about. This story can also be used for a writing prompt about what they did all summer while you were waiting on them. This book has many options for activities. I will say it is hard to find a new copy of this book for a cheap price. It also doesn't have a lot of information for it. It is usually out of stock online at Barnes and Noble, but I can't say for in-store shopping. Books a million does not carry it unless they have changed recently.

Finally Found You By Carrie Ann Ryan 99 cents
Finally Found You - Carrie Ann Ryan

The moment Presley Mackenzie walks into her kitchen only to find her boyfriend in a sweaty encounter with another woman on her kitchen counter, she vows to give up men forever. Between her testosterone-heavy day job in the gaming world, her broken heart, and her need to grow into her own shoes, dating just isn't important.

Mason Sutton not only just got dumped by the woman he thought he'd spend the rest of his life with, but now he finds himself healing beside the woman his brother cheated on. He's spent his entire life living in his brother's shadow only to find himself wanting the one woman he can't have.

As Presley and Mason soothe each other's hurts, they find themselves falling for each other even as they fight it. But as they learn to forgive and fall in love, their pasts come back to haunt them and the future they thought they could have starts to crumble before it can take hold.

The outline of the story is rather ingenious idea, but alas the way in which it was executed fell far, far below the mark.
The Year We Finally Solved Everything - Rudolf Kerkhoven

You know when you have a great idea, and you're really excited to explore that great idea, delve deep into it and have a poke around to see if it really is a great idea?! Well, sadly, I fear that Rudolf could have done a bit more digging and a bit more polishing of what he found.

The outline of the story is reasonable. In fact I'd argue that it's a rather ingenious idea, but alas the way in which it was executed fell far, far below the mark.

The main character, Richard, is a useless imbecile. He's not even funny when he thinks he's being funny. He's abrasive and immature and immediately put me off reading the story. The female characters also leave little to be desired, Mia is snarky and rude, Anna: a poster child for mental health issues managed poorly and don't even get me started on Richard's best friend...

The writing is stilted and repetitive to the nth degree. At several points in the book there's about 15 lines that start with the same few words. The same ideas and concepts are hashed and rehashed and driven so far into the reader's face it's almost as invasive as having your eyes examined by an optometrist.

The way in which society crumbled in the book seemed rather explosive, but not so far outside of the realm of possible that it wasn't believable, at least a little. If the writing were more palatable I might have allowed some of the other issues, but sadly all together this was a pretty average read. I'm quite glad it was a freebie.

I liked the idea, but loathed the execution of the book. I honestly couldn't recommend it, unless you wanted editing practice.

A few things I noticed:
36-37% pay phone is hyphenated in one instance and not in another.
57% - We walk(talk) about waiting on the couch...
92% - I can't breath(e) and I reach...
