I am so Sad!!!
IDA - Alison Evans IDA - Alison Evans

When I saw this book on Netgalley it looked like a book I would really enjoy. I am so sad because this was not the case !!!!!! I couldn't handle the talking in the book, so I just couldn't finish the book. 

I will say  I did like what I did read about Ida, as well as her girlfriend Daisy. I just gave up at 27 %. But I was ready to give up at 20% but wanted to give the book a fair chance. But I just couldn't do it.

I will also have to admit that I was confused about the storyline as well, I just think that the way certain individuals talked in the book just distracted me so bad that I just couldn't get past it. I am sure other individuals that will read this book wouldn't be bothered by this, and I wish I could have been one of them.

I would say give this book a chance because even though I didn't like the book doesn't mean you will be like me. 

I would like to also mention that I was the person that asked to read this book. No one made me, and my opinion is my own and no one else's. Thanks so much NetGalley for the chance.

One of the best books I have received from NetGalley!!! This book will keep you guessing!!!!
One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus

When I saw this book on NetGalley and it mentioned the movie Breakfast Club and also a murder, I knew right away that I had to have this book in my greedy little hands. So I was very happy when I found out I was chosen to read and review this book. The book had me from the beginning to the very end, and I never guessed who the killer or maybe killers was until the reveal.

I really loved all 4 of the main characters, so I was hoping none of them did it. I won't tell you who it was. The main characters where Bronwyn, Cooper, Nate, and Addy. They weren't prefect angels that's for sure, but we're anyone of them a murderer? I did figure out what Coop's secret was before it was revealed. Coop was the jock. I really liked him, but if I had to pick who I liked more out of him or Nate, I was choose Nate. Nate is the criminal, his the bad boy, the one mom's or dad's wouldn't want there daughters to bring home. I really loved Nate and I felt bad for all he has to go through at home. You can understand due to his home life why he does the things he does. But does that make him a killer? 

The girls I liked them as well, my favorite was Bronwyn, who is the Brain of the group. I thought I just felt more of a connection with her. But that doesn't mean I didn't like Addy, who of course is the beauty. She was just my least favorite of the 4 characters, even though I started warming up to her more towards the middle of the book.

I was so very happy with the way things turned out, in regards to wrapping up the mystery of who killed Simon. Oh I need to talk about Simon!!!! Simon was one F-Up individual that is for sure. He sure knew how to screw up someone's life, as well as his own life.

I voluntarily requested a copy of this book on my very own, for the purpose of being able to read such an awesome, amazing book. And I would definitely recommend this book to people that enjoy the movie Breakfast club, as well as a interesting murder mystery. I have never watched Pretty little liars, so I have no way to know if this book is anything like that show. So people that like that show, might want to read this book, to find out if it's anything like the television show.

Loved Luke!!!! Ok Book.
Gilded Cage - Vic James

First I would say thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me a chance to read this book. And I would also say that I am the one that asked for a chance to read this book. And my opinions are my very own.

While I didn't fall in love with this book, I didn't hate it either. My favorite parts are with Luke and with Silyen. First let's talk about Luke. Wow poor guy goes through it all in this book, I just wanted to be able to put my arms around him and give him a big hug. I liked that he was trying to do the right thing even though he knew he could get into big trouble for doing so. I can't wait to find out what is going to happen to him next. Even though the book was pretty boring I will read the next book for Luke.

Now Silyen I can't figure him out at all what is his agenda? Is he good or bad? I have to say he really has me very confused but also very interested in finding out what his deal is. Why does he do what he does towards the very end of the book? 

The things I didn't like was the book really didn't get really exciting until the last 8 or so chapters. I really didn't like anyone else. Abi I was really bored with almost throughout the whole book, until the last few pages. Besides Silyen the rest of his family I couldn't stand. The dad is so awful. The oldest son was a jerk and also a wimp. And Jenner the guy Abi falls for needs to get a freaking backbone. 

I hope Abi is much more interesting in the book, after how the book ended, I have really high hopes for her. 

I forgot to talk about Abi's sister Daisy. Her worshipping of the oldest brother that they working for in this book is very disturbing. I really hope that ends soon, or that nothing happens between them two, that would be so very wrong. I believe that it says she is 10years old in the book. Gavar has a baby, and about to get married. And he also has one hell of a temper.

Like I mentioned above even though I only gave the book 3 stars, I would definitely want to read the next book, when it's available to buy.

Reading progress update: I've read 41%.
Gilded Cage - Vic James

I am not really sure yet if I like this book or not. The beginning of the book started out very interesting, but not exciting has really happened as of yet. Luke's part of the story is pretty interesting, but not on his sister's part of the story.

I am really hoping it starts to get more interesting soon, or I don't know if I will be able to finish the book. 

I do feel sorry for Luke, and I am liking the friends he is starting to meet, and I love that his part of the rebellion. I think that if it doesn't getting interesting at 50% then I will probably just read Luke's part of the story.

Funny, awesome, book. Thanks so much NetGalley!!!!!
Denton Little's Still Not Dead - Lance Rubin

I really loved this book it was just as funny as the first book, and I am so glad that it was only two books. I thought Denton and his best-friend Paolo were so freaking funny in this book. It was so interesting to see what happened in regards to individuals death-date, since Denton survived, (I hope this isn't a spoiler since it mentions this in the title after all.) 

It was fun to see how Denton would get himself out of this crazy mess, and to find out if Paolo would live or die on his death-date, since it was coming up quickly. 

I was very happy with how things turned out, it was definitely an interesting ending, and I had a lot of fun reading the book. If you read the first book in the series, I would definitely recommend you to read this one also. And if you didn't read the first one, definitely going and read it, as soon as possible. I really don't think you'll regret it.

Thanks so much NetGalley, the publisher, and author, for letting me read this book, it was fun. I am so glad I voluntarily requested this book from you. The review is my honest opinion on how I felt about this fantastic and funny, as well as awesome book.
