not for me
Love Songs & Other Lies: A Novel - Jessica Pennington

Virginia/Vee  has known Anders and Logan since elementary school. Logan is Vee’s best friend. Vee had dropped everything to join a band tour with Logan for three months. The tour would also be televised.    Logan’s band is calle Your Future X. When Vee gets to the buses they will be on Vee meets Reese who is the bassist. Vee has heard a lot about Reese and Logan quickly tells Reese “she is like our sister “ when he makes some come on to her comments. Logan had told Vee about the job that would save Vee from summer break with her parents. Then Vee finds out she had not really been hired but as far as the band went she was their manager. Vee almost left to go back home but didn’t want to call her  parents for a return ticket and Vee decides to stay with the band. Then he comes toward her - the last person she wanted to see - Cameron. Cam. It had been almost two years since Vee had seen Cameron.  Logan knows how to push Vee’s buttons. Logan and Vee had a friends with benefits thing for about two months but only making out. Vee didn’t want to go farther and decided to end that relationship before it ended up ruining their friendship. But now Vee wasn’t always sure what Logan met when he was using sarcasm, Cam had heard Ginny/Vee talking to her grandmother and then he seen her at school eventually Vee and Cam got involved with each other. Cam’s parents had died in an accident and Cam had received enough money to live on. He had been living in California but after his parents death he moved to be close to his grandmother who was in the same nursing home as Vee’s and that is how he heard her voice and wanted to meet her. Cam had wanted to start over with no baggage so why he had moved from California.   Anders had advertised for needing a new guitarist and cam went to audition and joined the band. Vee had been the manager of the band Your Future X and wrote most of their songs.

I liked this book but i had very mixed feelings about this book. It just didn’t flow right for me. I don’t know maybe I missed something along the way. I liked the story yet it ended rather abruptly for me. If Cam wanted to stay out of the spotlight , why did he go with the band that was to be televised? I like they treated Vee with respect.There did seem to be unresolved business in this book. I did  like all the character sin this book. But as i said I had mixed feelings about the book.

DNF: Songs of Willow Frost
Songs of Willow Frost - Jamie Ford

Slow start and just not grabbing me. William and Charlotte are finally about to leave the orphanage, so I should probably stick it out a bit longer, but all I can think of is the Halloween Bingo Books I could be reading instead.

 

Maybe I'll try again between November 1st and the author visit...or then again, I may cancel on the author visit because there's a conflicting event the same night.

Songs and Fins by B. Kristin McMichael Book Blitz and Giveaway

Songs and Fins
B. Kristin McMichael
(The Merworld Trilogy, #2)
Published by: Lexia Press
Publication date: March 14th 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Whitney was amazed she finally had a boyfriend, and was prepared for a new life with him in the siren night human world. And the fact he was a lead singer in a rock band in his free time wasn’t bad, either. Too bad having a boyfriend didn’t mean she was going to see him, as his father’s punishment included separating them. Whitney is certain she can handle it, but sure enough, that isn’t the only wrench thrown into her new life. There’s a new threat in town, a scarier one than the backstabbing siren clan she’s part of now. They are night human hunters, and Whitney is an outlawed night human breed. Could her luck get any better? Quiet and peaceful would be ideal, but that’s not what she’s about to get.
EXCERPT:
Whitney meeting a new friend
Take my friends, and I’ll take yours. Sam’s worth at least four greens. Thanks for the new servants.
Whitney wadded the note up in her hand and began to push up to go over and tell Amber what she thought, but Tina caught her eye and shook her head, which was enough to make Whitney pause. While she wanted to go over and give Amber a piece of her mind, she trusted her friend. Something in her eyes said to listen to her. Instead of going over to the table, Whitney let Amber think she had won and sat back down alone. It wasn’t like Whitney wasn’t used to being alone in a lunchroom. She had transferred schools once before coming to their school. She would be fine. Once she got to the bottom of things, she would get her friends back.
Sitting back down, Whitney checked over her math homework. It was the only distraction she had with her, and she needed a distraction to keep from blowing up at Amber. It was ridiculous. Whitney wasn’t keeping Sam from Amber. Sam wanted nothing to do with her, or the sirens in general. That wasn’t Whitney’s fault. And actually, Whitney didn’t blame him on the Amber front. Whitney’s mother had told her more than once when she was a child that if you didn’t have something nice to say, you don’t say anything at all. That definitely pertained to Amber. Whitney had nothing she could say about the girl.
“Um …” A shadow fell over Whitney’s paper as someone stood beside the table, blocking the light.
Whitney glanced up to find a girl standing there, staring down at her paper, but not her. She had never seen the girl before, and she was sure she would have remembered her. She had long black hair that was tipped pink around the edges, some tattoos, and too many piercings to count. Even with her school uniform on, the girl stood out. How could you not with a Celtic cross taking up most of your forearm? That wasn’t something you saw often in a school with teenagers. Whitney’s mother would have killed her if she got a small tattoo that could be concealed. This girl’s wasn’t hidden at all.
“Can I sit here?” the girl asked quietly, pointing to the empty table.
