The Good Luck Sister (Wildstone #1.5) by Jill Shalvis
The Good Luck Sister - Jill Shalvis

 

Past, present and future collide to create a catalyst for a second chance at love. To understand how far a person comes, one has to take a look at where they have been. Jill Shalvis takes a walk down memory lane with a broken heart and a second chance. Tilly lost more than her friend when Dylan broke her heart. She lost a bit of that feisty spirit, she was forever known for. Moving on was not easy, but finally she's working toward her dreams, until a ghost from her past, makes it his goal to haunt her future. Amidst broken dreams, shattered pride and wounded hearts, The Good Luck Sister is a story of survival that spans a teenage friendship, a heartbreaking love affair and the ending that was always meant to be. Happily ever after.

SISTER OF THE HEDGE & OTHER STORIES by Jim C. Hines
Sister of the Hedge & Other Stories - Jim C. Hines

From the blurb:

"In the world war against the Elf King, what is the cost of victory ... a dryad vigilante in Tuscon fights an enemy more dangerous than any other: her own nature ... a grim look at the true cost of Sleeping Beauty's curse. This collection features six of Jim C. Hines' more serious stories:

SISTER OF THE HEDGE
IN THE LINE OF DUTY
HEART OF ASH
BLOODLINES
IMAGES OF DEATH
OURS TO FIGHT FOR

Each story includes an afterword from the author.
"

 

This is a delightful collection of short stories - entertaining, enjoyable and a bit more series than Hine's usual fare.  It was interesting to see how some of the author's novels started off as short story ideas.  The author afterward at the end of each story was also very interesting.

Review: The Good Luck Sister by Jill Shalvis
The Good Luck Sister - Jill Shalvis

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

The Good Luck Sister is a great pick-me-up read. I adored Tilly and Dylan as teenagers in Lost and Found Sisters, so I dove into their story, eager to see what they’d be like as adults.

It’s been ten years since Dylan left Wildstone, breaking not only Tilly’s heart but his own. Now he has returned and the pull between them is as strong as ever. Tilly is understandably wary of letting Dylan in again, but he’s patient and determined to win her trust back. Both of them are a wonderful mixture of strength and vulnerability. They’re also incredibly fun and have great chemistry. The result is a romance that draws you in and I defy you not to root for these two to get their happily ever after.

The Good Luck Sister moves back and forth between Dylan and Tilly’s past and present and the flashbacks might just be my favorite part of the story. Tilly and Dylan were best friends as teenagers and the way that they supported one another grabbed my heart. Dylan grew up with an abusive father and Tilly suffered the devastating loss of her mother. Both of them carry scars that broke my heart, but I absolutely loved how they cared for and encouraged one another. Even though Dylan eventually leaves to make his way in the world and to push Tilly to seize her own chance, it’s clear that these two were always destined to find their way back to each other.

Dylan and Tilly are the heart and soul of The Good Luck Sister, but the supporting cast adds a wealth of humor to the story. Dylan’s friends Penn and Ric are delightful (and I’d love to read stories about them) and fans of Lost and Found Sisters are sure to enjoy an update on Quinn (now pregnant and absolutely zany) and Mick. And of course Tilly has a kooky dog who threatens to steal the show more than once. Jill Shalvis writes some of the funniest four-legged friends out there, so how could I not fall in love with Leo, aka Napoleon (as in complex)? All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed The Good Luck Sister. It’s a fast-paced, charming read with entertaining characters and a romance that will leave you smiling.

My Sister Rosa/ Justine Larbalestier
My Sister Rosa - Justine Larbalestier

This book was was part of the Aussie Author Challenge at http://bookloverbookreviews.com/reading-challenges/aussie-author-challenge-2018 

 

I just finished it and I don't even know where to start. This book is AMAZING- it's got everything in it- suspense, heartache, humour and romance. 

This book kept me theorizing and panicking until the very last page as well as wanting more. 

 

Justine did a wonderful job with the characters- I felt like I knew each one of them (even though it was only told from Che's POV)- the characters were all unique and different from each other, all had deep personalities and intriguing backgrounds. 

 

To be honest I'm just speechless- this book in my opinion is a must- read to everyone, no matter if it is your least favourite genre- you are going to rip through this book.

 

Justine's writing is incredible- she gave me the feels and I was seriously involved. The plot twists were mind- shattering and I had my mouth awkwardly gaping in public numerous times. 

 

I'm probably not doing this book any justice- just read it and trust me you won't be sorry. 

 

Read it and let me know what you think!

MY SISTER’S KEEPER Review
My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult has a talent for making her readers consider, and reconsider, issues they’ve never thought much of before. At the center of this, perhaps her most famous novel, is medical emancipation: a thirteen-year-old girl wants to have control of her own body; she doesn’t want to leave decisions up to her parents.

 

Anna’s older sister, Kate, has fought Cancer since the age of two. She is doing badly, nearly dead, when Anna has had enough and consults a lawyer about filing a petition to emancipate herself. She’s had to donate body organs to her sister time and time again, from birth, with no say.

 

This book is competently written, but I didn’t quite enjoy it as much as I expected to. The first half dragged; Julia and Campbell’s relationship seems forced; the ending is tragedy porn. The topic at the novel’s center is intriguing, as is always the case with Picoult . . . This one just didn’t entirely get off the ground, for me. I found myself indifferent to the plight of this family. I never felt I was in their heads.

 

I can recommend this to fans of Picoult, but no one else.
