Pretend You're Mine: A Small Town Love Story - Lucy Score
27/04/2015

I discover the author recently and i must say this wont be the last book i will read from her. I really liked this one. I enjoy the tone of the author writing and from my side there was never a dull either a boring moment. I loved as well the small town romance style the book had too.

I liked Luke and Harper. I really did enjoy their journey and how the ended up together. Luke was the male character i can exactly write paragraphs and paragraphs about him how i loved hating him and all because seriously he really really was a pain in the ass and totally jackass and yes in the end he did took him kinda a little bit more to realize his feelings towards Harper but in the end does we all take a little bit of time to admit the truth for our feelings making mistakes in progress too?

Cant wait to read more from the author

Flowers Without the Attic
The Art of Arranging Flowers - Lynne Branard
We become who we are meant to be because of the things along our edges that pulls us into existence.


Just to be clear, I do not hate this book. I believe this will please a very specific reader demographic which I am unfortunately not a part of. But the disappointment from where I stand is just too palpable for me to justify to myself the 3-stars that this probably does deserve. I was expecting romance: the heroine owns a dog, somewhere a sweet veterinarian turns up, THE FREAKING COVER IS PINK WITH A LADY HOLDING A BOQUET OF FLOWERS, how can I not brace for something like that incredibly emo 90’s film Bed of Roses? (on a defensive note, back in the day Christian Slater was actually hot) I mean kudos for going against the stereotype, but is it too much to hope for something less narcoleptic? Maybe some original sentiments on the contemplations about life, death, family and the universe?

So. Fetch.
The Truth About Alice - Jennifer Mathieu
…there is one thing I’ve learned about people: they don’t get that mean and nasty overnight. It’s not human nature. 
If you give people enough time, eventually they’ll do the most heartbreaking stuff in the world.


The things is, I’ve read this storyline a couple of times elsewhere. I’ve watched the teen flick and CW series portraying this issue with every possible embellishment and spin to repurpose the shock value of the underlying tyrannical machinery of high school politics and bullying into something fresh or fresh-like. To a certain degree, this still had the message powerfully delivered, a story that still deserves to be told and all that jazz but where this book’s strength lay, for me, was in effectively capturing the complexity of the personalities surviving and participating in that strange hyperreality of fictional high schools, or more exactly, small town high schools.

A Star, A Moon and Stevie Nicks
Catch a Falling Star - Kim Culbertson
Even Hobbits have to take adventures. That's how they bring back stories to the Shire.


I am flummoxed. 

Baffled.

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered how this book managed to pull something off of me, a plot-twist of sorts in my reading habits. We often get disappointed and underwhelmed but it’s quite a rarity to start off with notes snarking on the cringe-inducing cliches only to end up halfway through not making notes at all and just paying attention. You start to take it seriously. You realize hey, this book has something to say outside the stale and recycled premise. The message was hardly original but I was taken aback that there was a message at all. One that came across with heartfelt sincerity despite the cheesy and unpolished delivery methods.
