{Arc Review} Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father’s failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care.
Everyone thinks of Maegan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret of her own after the pressure got to her last year. And when her sister comes home from college pregnant, keeping it from her parents might be more than she can handle.
When Rob and Maegan are paired together for a calculus project, they’re both reluctant to let anyone through the walls they’ve built. But when Maegan learns of Rob’s plan to fix the damage caused by his father, it could ruin more than their fragile new friendship…
This captivating, heartfelt novel asks the question: Is it okay to do something wrong for the right reasons?

My Review:

Call Me What You Want is such a good read. I love the story it told and connected well with the characters in the book. I was lucky to read the book early and looking forward to buying it, when it comes June 25th.

Maegan tries hard to be the perfect daughter, since her father is a cop. She makes one mistake that cost her being like an outcast a bit. Now she dealing with family issues and a cheating scandal. Force now to work with a bigger outcast of the school, Rob. How will these two get along?

Rob is a huge outcast after what his father has done. He struggles at home a bit and at school. All he wants to do is read his book and be invisible. Now in order to pass a class, he must work with Meagan.

The summary do give most away. You must read and find out more how Rob and Meahan interact with each other. This book has some fun moments in and I really did enjoyed. Find out more if Rob and Meagan story will be alright in the end on June 25th.

Happy Reading!!!

Ask Me Anything by Molly E. Lee

Book Summary:
I should’ve kept my mouth shut.
But Wilmont Academy’s been living in the Dark Ages when it comes to sex ed, and someone had to take matters into her own hands. Well, I’m a kickass coder, so I created a totally anonymous, totally untraceable blog where teens can come to get real, honest, nothing-is-off-limits sex advice.
And holy hell, the site went viral overnight. Who knew this school was so hard up.
Now the school administration is on a war path to shut me down, and they have Dean—my coding crush—hot on my trail. If he discovers my secret, I could lose his trust forever. And thousands of teens who need real advice won’t have anyone to turn to.
Ask me anything…except how to make things right.

My Review:

Ask Me Anything was such a cute read. The story was fun and loved the characters in it. Perfect for any fiction readers.

Amber and Dean are the best hackers around. When a prank goes wrong, they are blame for it. Now throw into a club with just the two of them. They both place a bet who can piss off the principal first without telling each other what they planning. What could go wrong?

This book was a fast read and I love the chemistry between Dean and Amber have for each other. I like the idea of Ask Me Anything site where teens or whoever feel comfortable talking about stuff they can’t with their parents. Wish we had that back in my day. Looking for a new read, then check out Ask Me Anything.

Happy Reading!!!!

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner

Book Summary:
Every Friday night, best friends Delia and Josie become Rayne Ravenscroft and Delilah Darkwood, hosts of the campy creature feature show Midnite Matinee on the local cable station TV Six.
But with the end of senior year quickly approaching, the girls face tough decisions about their futures. Josie has been dreading graduation, as she tries to decide whether to leave for a big university and chase her dream career in mainstream TV. And Lawson, one of the show’s guest performers, a talented MMA fighter with weaknesses for pancakes, fantasy novels, and Josie, is making her tough decision even harder.
Scary movies are the last connection Delia has to her dad, who abandoned the family years ago. If Midnite Matinee becomes a hit, maybe he’ll see it and want to be a part of her life again. And maybe Josie will stay with the show instead of leaving her behind, too.
As the tug-of-war between growing up and growing apart tests the bonds of their friendship, Josie and Delia start to realize that an uncertain future can be both monstrous…and momentous.

My Review:

Rayne & Delia Midnite Matinee is such a good read. A book about testing the bonds of a friendship. It was fun to read at times.

Delia is a huge horror fan and started her online show with best friend Rayne. Delia try to uses the show to connect with her father, who walked out on her. Rayne is there to support her along the way. Until after high school, Rayne has other plans that don’t involve being on show forever. Things may be changing for their friendship, but in the end will they still stay friends?

I thought the book started out pretty good. I enjoy how they girls put together their horror show. It was fun reading how close the girls are and people thinking they sisters. Toward the end I thought the story dragged out a bit then it needed it to be. If your in mood for some friendship reads, then you might enjoy this book.

Happy Birthday!!!!

In Another Life by C.C Hunter

Book Summary:
Chloe was three years old when she became Chloe Holden, but her adoption didn’t scar her, and she’s had a great life. Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas. Starting twelfth grade as the new kid at school, everything Chloe loved about her life is gone. And feelings of déjà vu from her early childhood start haunting her.
When Chloe meets Cash Colton she feels drawn to him, as though they’re kindred spirits. Until Cash tells her the real reason he sought her out: Chloe looks exactly like the daughter his foster parents lost years ago, and he’s determined to figure out the truth.
As Chloe and Cash delve deeper into her adoption, the more things don’t add up, and the more strange things start happening. Why is Chloe’s adoption a secret that people would kill for?

My Review:

In Another Life was such a good book. I like the storyline about adoption and affects it has on the two main characters in the book.

I like Chole in the book, she had everything she ever wanted. A loving family until it starts to fall a part. Starting a new school year and finding out where she belongs in the world. When accidentally bumping in Cash, her life changes forever.

I also did like Cash in the book. He comes off very mysterious person. He has a loving family but he does not feel like he belongs there. When he frist see Chole, she looks like his family missing daughter. What secrets are kept from these two all these years?

This book was a very addictive read. I finish it in about one night. You enjoy the twists and turns throughout the book. If looking for something new, then your in luck.

Happy Reading!!!

More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
*While this book exists in the same universe as Letters to the Lost, it is a standalone title.*
Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay…until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.
Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.
When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.

My Review:

More Than We Can Tell is a excellent follow up to Letters of The Lost. Which I did review Letters to the Lost. You can you read book without having to reading the first one. Since both books are great, you might as well read both of them.

I was excited to read Rev story from Letters to the Lost. He is Delcan’s best friend and dealing with personal demons from his father’s abuse. He gets kinda close off after receiving a letter from his birth father. Slowly he starts opening up to Emma one night.

Emma is a gamer like her father. She loves to build gaming worlds in secrets and dealing with an internet troll. She mostly keeps to herself and gaming life a secret from family. Then she finds confront talking to Rev at night.

Will Rev and Emma find the courage to seek help from their love ones before it’s to late?

This book was very hard to put down and draws you in. I love the connection between both characters. They are both broken and keep to themselves but learning at same time to be brave. This book prefect for those who need a quick read and enjoy comtempory read.

Happy Reading!!!!

{Blog Tour} Starworld by Aubrey Coulthurst and Paula Garner

TOUR SCHEDULE:
http://www.jeanbooknerd.com/2019/03/starworld-by-audrey-coulthurst-paula.html

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: Candlewick (April 16, 2019)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0763697567
ISBN-13: 978-0763697563

Praise for STARWORLD
An unlikely friendship blossoms between two high school seniors…in the deft hands of co-authors Coulthurst (Inkmistress, 2018, etc.) and Garner (Relative Strangers, 2018, etc.), the well-realized main characters and deeply insightful descriptions of complex emotions combine into an unusually thoughtful novel…Readers seeking characters facing challenges with honesty, bravery, and kindness will appreciate this book with its reminder that our outward lives often don’t reflect who we really are. ―Kirkus Reviews

Sam Jones and Zoe Miller have one thing in common: they both want an escape from reality. Loner Sam flies under the radar at school and walks on eggshells at home to manage her mom’s obsessive-compulsive disorder, wondering how she can ever leave to pursue her dream of studying aerospace engineering. Popular, people-pleasing Zoe puts up walls so no one can see her true self: the girl who was abandoned as an infant, whose adoptive mother has cancer, and whose disabled brother is being sent away to live in a facility. When an unexpected encounter results in the girls’ exchanging phone numbers, they forge a connection through text messages that expands into a private universe they call Starworld. In Starworld, they find hilarious adventures, kindness and understanding, and the magic of being seen for who they really are. But when Sam’s feelings for Zoe turn into something more, will the universe they’ve built survive the inevitable explosion?


In a novel in two voices, a popular teen and an artistic loner forge an unlikely bond — and create an entire universe — via texts. But how long before the real world invades Starworld?

My Review:

Starworld was such a good read. I enjoy the story it told and the characters in it.

Starworld is an escape for Sam and Zoey. A world they created to get away from their crazy lives. The world they built brought them together, but what happens when reality gets in the way? Are Zoey and Sam friendship strong enough to face their fears together?

This book was a quick read for me. Both girls dealing with lots of family issues and been dealing on them alone. It was nice seeing how the friendship grow and reading the world they built together. Looking for a good friendship read, then your in for a treat.

Happy Reading!!!!

The Fever King by Victoria Lee

Book Summary:
In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the sole survivor of the viral magic that killed his family and made him a technopath. His ability to control technology attracts the attention of the minister of defense and thrusts him into the magical elite of the nation of Carolinia.
The son of undocumented immigrants, Noam has spent his life fighting for the rights of refugees fleeing magical outbreaks—refugees Carolinia routinely deports with vicious efficiency. Sensing a way to make change, Noam accepts the minister’s offer to teach him the science behind his magic, secretly planning to use it against the government. But then he meets the minister’s son—cruel, dangerous, and achingly beautiful—and the way forward becomes less clear.
Caught between his purpose and his heart, Noam must decide who he can trust and how far he’s willing to go in pursuit of the greater good.

My Review:

The Fever King was just an alright read for me. The story was something different and it was a Male lead taking over. It was a interesting story, with some likeable characters.

Noam is our male lead in the book. He hate how things are run by this new ruler. He is kinda of a rebel. When a virus hits home, he is the only survivor. Now with magic powers and help with controlling them. He ready to right the wrongs in the world. In end who can he really trust?

This book was a little slow burn for me. The ending did peck my interest for to read book two. I may not enjoy the book a lot but you guys might like it. If you unsure and want to give Fever King a try, then get from local library like I did.

Happy Reading!!!
