Heroine by Mindy Mcginnis

Book Summary:
When a car crash sidelines Mickey just before softball season, she has to find a way to hold on to her spot as the catcher for a team expected to make a historic tournament run. Behind the plate is the only place she’s ever felt comfortable, and the painkillers she’s been prescribed can help her get there.
The pills do more than take away pain; they make her feel good.
With a new circle of friends—fellow injured athletes, others with just time to kill—Mickey finds peaceful acceptance, and people with whom words come easily, even if it is just the pills loosening her tongue.
But as the pressure to be Mickey Catalan heightens, her need increases, and it becomes less about pain and more about want, something that could send her spiraling out of control.

My Review:

Heroine was such a addictive read. A very detailed book about drug abuse. The characters are very likeable in the book and you have a sense of concern for them.

Micky has her life planned out, but did not plan on wrecking her car. Now she must fight hard getting back on track. Feeling guilty about the accident with her friend in the car. She then turns to pills to make the pain go away. What happens when you become addicted?

The book was such a good read. Read it one night. You start to feel worry and concern for Micky. The struggles she with pills and trying to get life in order. You can really get sucked into this book. The book may be sensitive to others since it deals with drugs. Looking for a good detailed read, you might like Heroine.

Happy Reading!!!

Sorry Not Sorry by Jamie Reed

Book Summary:
Janelle and Alyssa used to be BFFs — but not anymore. Alyssa became leader of the shallowest girls in school while Janelle got involved in activism with new, true friends.
But, suddenly, Alyssa’s diabetes becomes the talk of the school. It’s turned life-threatening; without a kidney transplant, her chances are not good. Despite reservations, Janelle gets tested and finds that she’s a rare, perfect match with Alyssa for a transplant. But organ donations aren’t very common in her community, and she starts to feel pushback. When feuds and accusations push the girls further apart, Janelle doesn’t know what to do. Will the match bring the girls back together, or drive them apart for good?

My Review:

Sorry Not Sorry was such a good book. It tests the bonds of two ex best friends. Did connected well with the two main characters in the book. It was another quick read for me.

Janelle and Alyssa were best friends. They did everything together. When Alessa got real sick, Janelle was right there helping out. As Alyssa got more sick she slowly drifts a part from her friend. When Alyssa needs a liver, will Janelle will come running back to save her ex best friend life?

I like how the book shows flashbacks how close the girls were as friends. This book test the bonds these girls have for each other.

In the end will they be able to solve their problems, before it’s to late?

Happy Reading!

{Arc Review} Saving Meghan by D.J Palmer

Book Summary:
Can you love someone to death?
Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others claim she’s obsessed and can’t stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter’s expense.
Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, doctors intervene and immediately suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker, typically the mother, seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand?

My Review:

Saving Meghan was such an insightful read. I did enjoyed the story. It was such a good mystery and leaves you guessing.

Meghan is always sick. Been in and out of the hospital all her life. No one seems to know what’s wrong her. Her mom always have different doctors on hand, trying to figure out. Her dad on the other hand getting tired of the hospital visits and thinks nothing serious wrong with Meghan. To please Meghan’s mom, her father finds a new doctor. Will this new doctor be the key to saving Meghan?

This book leaves you wondering if her mother poisoning her or is it all inside Meghan’s head? There some plot twists towards the end you don’t see coming. In the mood for a little mystery and something new to read. This is an adult read you might enjoy. Come out tommorow.

Happy Reading!!!!

Happy Death Day/Happy Death 2 U by Aaron Hartzler

Book Summary:
The official novelization of the #1 smash hit film Happy Death Day and its sequel Happy Death Day 2U, from Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, The Purge franchise) and Universal Pictures.
In Happy Death Day, Teresa “Tree” Gelbman’s birthday is the worst day of her life, starting when she wakes up in a stranger’s bed. It’s also the last day of her life, ending when she’s killed by a psychotic killer with a knife. She’s dead. And then she wakes up in a stranger’s bed, it’s September 18, and she has to live it all over again . . . until she’s hunted down and wakes up, again, and again. It’s a Groundhog Day situation, only with murder, guns, and mean girls, and Tree’s only shot at living to see the next day is to relive the day of her murder, over and over, until she discovers her killer’s identity.
Happy Death Day 2U picks up the story without missing a beat. Tree Gelbman thought she’d finally lived to see a brand-new day. But when she wakes up on her same birthday and an all-new psychopath in a mask is out to kill her and her friends, she’s going to find out that all the rules have changed. Death makes a killer comeback.

My Review:

I love Happy Death Day movies! Was so excited they made it into a book. There not much of a book and movie difference.. The book is just a quick detail on what happen in both movies.

Tree is not a very nice person to begin with. She is mean and sleeping around a lot. On her birthday she gets kill and wakes up reliving the same day again and again. She must find her killer before her days are number. Each time to relive the day she slowly notice how mean she had been to everyone. Will Tree be able to find her killer and change her life around in time?

In Happy Death Day 2U, Picks up where the first movie left off. Mostly get more answers why there was a time loop and still another killer on the loose. Keeping it short to not spoiled a thing.

This book was a quick read. I did enjoyed it. The movies are funny to watch also. If you into cheesy horror movies like me, then you will have fun either reading or watching the movies. You will find this book in the adult section of the bookstore.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review} Killing November by Adriana Mather

Book Summary:
It’s a school completely off the grid, hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps. There’s no electricity, no internet, and an eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from Knife-Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analysis. And all of the students are children of the world’s most elite strategists—training to become assassins, counselors, spies, and master impersonators. Into this world walks November Adley, who quickly discovers that friends are few in a school where personal revelations are discouraged and competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits into the school’s bizarre strategy games before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.

My Review:

What happens you wake up in a strange boarding school for assassins?

For November, she has no clue what her father was thinking on sending her here. The school is divided into families, kids are train to be killers. The question is, how does November fit into all this. No idea she had been kept hidden for years from family secret. After a student is killed, she must find answers to her pass before it’s to late.

Killing November was such a fast pace read. I did love everything about it and enjoy half the characters in it. I did finish this book in one sitting. Looking forward to book two. If you love boarding school books and assassins, then this book prefect for you. It comes out March 26th.

Happy Reading!!

The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Book Summary:
Pretty Little Liars meets Ocean’s 11 in this intrigue-filled contemporary drama from acclaimed author Kristen Simmons.
Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.
When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.
At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials–because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark–a senator’s son–and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

My Review:

The Deceivers was such a addictive read. Another great book for the year. The storyline was fun and the characters I did enjoy.

Brynn works hard to try to survive. Even if it means conning people and trying to get out of town. Vale Hall notice her talents and offer her a chance of freedom from her old life. When the past comes back to haunt her, will she be truly free?

This book was very hard to put down. I was intrigued with the story and how each character interacts with each other. There are some secrets and twists within this book. If your in mood for a good boarding school story, then you won’t be disappointed.

You ready to go to Vale Hall?

Happy Reading!!
