Book Review : SKIN BB Easton
Skin - BB Easton

oct 16-21

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her bestselling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy standalone. SKIN is Knight's book—a gritty, taboo, forbidden love story based on true events.

In 1997, Ronald “Knight” McKnight was the meanest, most misunderstood boy at Peach State High School...perhaps on the entire planet. Knight hated everyone, except for me, BB—the perky, quirky punk chick with the locker next to his. 

I, on the other hand, liked everybody except for Knight. I was scared sh*tless of him, actually. All I wanted was to marry Prince Eric-lookalike and king of the Peach State High punk scene, Lance Hightower, and have a million of his babies. 

Unfortunately for me, Knight was even better at getting his way than I was, and once he got under my skin, my life would never be the same.

Book Review : Ive been curious about Knight since reading 44 chapters about 4 men and he's a bit crazy and somehow BB attracts the attention of Knight who is one crazy motherfucker but he has a soft side he only shows to BB they have a kinda crazy friendship turned relationship . BB has a thing for this punk guy Lance hightower who I kinda sensed was gay and that was true but BB was trying to get this guys attention he ends up giving her drugs once in the bathroom which was kinda weird . Her best friend Julliet is dating this fucking asshole who sells drugs and Knight ends up punching him and Tony threatens BB with making her pay him Julliet turns out to be pregnant. Knight and BB have some good moments but then there aren't some good times Knight ends up Killing a guy they break up BB is heartbroken she meets another guy who she tries to hook up with but Knight shows up and they stop seeing each other also but Knight is going into the army she gets her licence and she meets a guy working on cars his name is Harley he is the next book can't wait to read it . 

Quotes :

The next time some motherfucker makes you cry, you don’t say you’re sorry. Do you understand me?” His voice was quiet, but firm. I nodded and blinked rapidly. “You don’t get to be sorry.” I nodded again, looking at his mouth. His eyes were too intense. “Next time, you kick him in the fucking balls.”



Clearly no one had seen this boy smile before, because if they had, they’d be spending the rest of their lives trying to make him do it again.



Pressing his forehead against mine, Knight said, “I love you, Punk.” “I love you, too, Skin.

Book Review : A quiet kind of thunder Sarah Barnard
A Quiet Kind of Thunder - Sara Barnard

sep 24-29 

A girl who can’t speak and a boy who can’t hear go on a journey of self-discovery and find support with each other in this gripping, emotionally resonant novel from bestselling author Sara Barnard. Perfect for fans of Morgan Matson and Jandy Nelson.

Steffi doesn’t talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can’t hear, but he can listen.

Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life. The condition’s name has always felt ironic to her, because she certainly does not “select” not to speak. In fact, she would give anything to be able to speak as easily and often as everyone around her can. She suffers from crippling anxiety, and uncontrollably, in most situations simply can’t open her mouth to get out the words.

Steffi’s been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her. He’s deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she’s assigned to help him acclimate. To Rhys, it doesn’t matter that Steffi doesn’t talk. As they find ways to communicate, Steffi discovers that she does have a voice, and that she’s falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it. But as she starts to overcome a lifelong challenge, she’ll soon confront questions about the nature of her own identity and the very essence of what it is to know another person


Review : this book was beautiful I loved it Steffi is mute she meets Rhys who is deaf they start to form a friendship I cried a bit in this book cause I related so much to Steffi . Rhys and Steffi start dating . Steffi starts to talk a bit more . Rhys and Steffi decide to go on a secret trip but then a accident happens and Steffi has to talk to get Rhys to the hospital . Rhys sends steffi a email and she tells him to meet up with her and they talk and they decide to talk way more and no more secrets loved this book.

Quotes :

“Panic attacks are a lot like being drunk in some ways, you lose self-control. You cry for seemingly no reason. You deal with the hangover long into the next day.”

“Here are three separate but similar things: shyness, introversion and social anxiety. You can have one, two or all three of these things simultaneously. A lot of the time people thing they're all the same thing, but that's just not true. Extroverts can be shy, introverts can be bold, and a condition like anxiety can strike whatever kind of social animal you are. 

Lots of people are shy. Shy is normal. A bit of anxiety is normal. Throw the two together, add some brain-signal error - a NO ENTRY sign on the neural highway from my brain to my mouth perhaps, though no one really knows - and you have me.”

Book Review : Keeping Him Kennedy fox
Keeping him - Kennedy Fox

Sep 19-22


Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy. 
Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.

Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he’s ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren’t the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson’s a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he’s hiding deep feelings about the one who’s had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his.

Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she’s one of the best horse trainers in the area, she’s never been able to tame her best friend and the man she’s secretly loved since she was fifteen—Jackson Bishop. She’s waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she’s done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes—knowing they’re both ready to settle down and start a family.

Even if her heart beats for another man. 

Jackson’s certain he’s lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can’t bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera’s already having second thoughts and knows she can’t get married without his support. It’s not until she’s at the altar that she realizes she can’t let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him—even if it means running out on her own wedding.


Review : the final book in the bishop brothers series was freaking insane I loved it though it starts out with Kiera leaving her wedding then we go to the past to where it leads up to with the letter and Jackson . Kiera's fiance at the time you could tell was emotionally abusive he was controling he has issues with Kiera's relationship with Jackson. And he was hiding things from Kiera like having a child and he didn't even care to have a relationship with said child it was just a issue to him what a fucking dick . He ends up setting a fire in the bishops barn like what a fucking psycho after he got fired cause he assaulted Jackson. on the day of Kiera's wedding Kiera finds a letter from Jackson and I've got to say it made me freaking cry Jackson has never believed he is good enough for Kiera which is bullshit they are so good together so she leaves her wedding and finds Jackson and they talk and kiss and then then end up starting dating it wasn't easy at first cause well her ex fiance is a total piece of shit . But Kiera and Jackson they are freaking adorable together I love them together this was the book I was waiting for I wanted them to be together . The ex fiance tries to kill Kiera and Jackson is there but the ex fiance ends up dying . Jackson proposes to kira and they are also pregnant with twin boys awww so cute and they end up having a girl also a little while later . I loved this series so much .

Quotes : 

Jackson stands, his dick coming back to life. He reaches behind his neck and pulls off his T-shirt. I gaze down his chest and abs, and though I’ve seen him shirtless dozens of times, the sight of his chiseled muscles never gets old. Next, he unzips his jeans, and I wait with bated breath for what’s coming. “Hold back your drool,” he taunts, looking at me with a devilish grin. Jackson pulls his pants and boxers down to his ankles before quickly kicking them off. I’m certain my heart stops beating completely, and I’ve now died and gone to heaven. Jackson’s always followed through with his truth or dare to avoid this very consequence, but for some reason, tonight he’s determined to actually kill me. Torturously. I pull my lower lip into my mouth and bite down. Jackson stands naked in front of me, his dick getting hard, and he’s so close, I could reach out and touch it. Sliding my hands under my legs to keep that very thing from happening, I blink and bring my gaze back up to his mischievous face. “Ready?” His cocky smile has butterflies twirling around my stomach. He bends his arms and puts his fists into his shoulders, mimicking a pair of wings. He then runs around in circles, flapping his pretend wings as he screams ‘bwak-bwak-bwak, I’m a chicken’ over and over until I’m bent over laughing so hard, I’m crying


“Jackson…” I say, trying to gain control of my emotions. “What are you doing?” He swallows, pausing a moment before leaning back and looking into my eyes as if he’s searching for an answer. “Something I should’ve done a long fuckin’ time ago.” Without another breath, Jackson brings our mouths together in a heated and desperate kiss

You’re not mine, but I’ll always be yours. My heart will absolutely shatter watching you marry another man, but I’ve earned it. You deserve all the happiness, Kiera. Even if I’m not the reason for it.

I was never the right guy for you, but you were always the right girl for me. I will always love you, Kiera. —Jackson


“I don’t know how, after all this time, you can't tell us apart. I’m the better lookin’ brother. It’s obvious.”


These days, I’m dodging more women in the grocery store than I’d like to admit and pretending I’m John when it doesn’t work. I’ve got his personality down to a T. Definite perks of being a twin



Colton…” I shout after jumping out of my truck and walking toward him. “You missed me already?” He flashes a cocky grin. “You wish. But we’re going out tonight, so put on your drinkin’ pants.” “My drinking pants are no pants,”


Listen, I told you last time, and I’m tellin’ you again, you ain’t my type, so put your dick away.”


Wow…” John says. “This actually doesn’t suck.” “I’m not just a pretty boy, ya know


“Sometimes I wonder how we can be twins, considering how different we are, but then at other times, I see a lot of myself in you and remember we have more in common than I realize,” John says.


You’re my best friend, Jackson Bishop. You’ll always have a place in my heart.”


I’m not the type of woman to apologize when I haven’t done anything wrong. Never have been, never will be


I see him wearing red silk boxers with black knee socks. “Dude…” I keel over laughing. “What the hell are you wearin’? You look like fuckin’ Santa Claus.”



Emily: Oh and Jackson…if you hurt my friend, I won’t think twice about sneaking into your house in the middle of the night and using a chainsaw to your balls. Jesus. I cup my junk at the imagery. Jackson: I promise to cut off my own balls if that ever happens. Emily: Good. I’ll hold ya to that.


“Oh, haven’t met him yet.” “And you won’t,” Jackson says. “He’s twenty-five and thinks he’s God’s gift to women.” I grin, shaking my head at the irony. “Sounds like someone else I know.” “No, I said he thinks he is. I actually am.



Don’t you bring me into your trouble,” John adds. “I’ve had enough of that the past thirty something years.”

My very first cozy mystery...
A Geek Girl's Guide to Murder - Julie Anne Lindsey

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

A Geek Girl's Guide to Murder

Julie Ann Lindsey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. The snafu's timing couldn't be worse—Renaissance Faire season is in full swing and Mia's family's business relies on her presence.

Mia doesn't have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. When the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect, her anxiety level registers on the Richter scale.

Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he's closer than she'd ever imagined.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Cozy Mysteries are not really my cuppa…and I'm probably not the best one to judge this type of book.  But overall this ended up being not so bad.  The first half did kind of drag and did feel a little too sickly sweet…but once the mystery started getting closer to being solved, I started getting into it more.  I even lol'd a few times.  I can see why others would like this genre of mystery…it's probably perfect for someone who doesn't like a lot of graphic gore and sexy type scenes.

Book review : Far from the tree Robin benway
Far from the Tree - Robin Benway

July 28-August 1

A contemporary novel about three adopted siblings who find each other at just the right moment.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs.

But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including—

Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers. And when her adopted family’s long-buried problems begin to explode to the surface, Maya can’t help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.

And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him. 


Review : I freaking loved this book it was heartbreaking and beautiful about family . This is about 3 siblings who each are adopted except for Joaquin because he's afraid 
who decided to find each other and they get to know each other . Grace she's going through a lot she just gave her baby up for adoption and wants to find her birth mother . Maya who is dealing with her parents always fighting and her mother secretly hiding alcohol. Joaquin who's foster family wants to adopt him but he is afraid to be adopted because of his past . Grace goes back to school and gets bullied by some asshole who plays baby noises and she ends up punching him and goes to cry in the bathroom where she meets a new friend they develop a friendship which I really liked . Maya has a girlfriend who she ends up breaking up with . Maya mom ends up passing out drunk and ends up going to rehab . Joaquin I really felt for his character cause he's been through so much . They all decide to find there birth mother but find out she died by there aunt but she cared for them all she just couldn't keep them . Joaquin finally decides he wants to be adopted I cried a lot in this book.
