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!!!

But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, sparks will fly as Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.

My Review:

Letters to The Lost was such a eye opening read about grief. I did love this book a lot and the story it told. I did connected well with the characters on what they going through.

Juliet always writing letters to her mom and leaving them at her gravesite. But one day a mystery boy replies back to her. He seems to understand on what she is going through. At school Juilet seems withdrawn from everyone after her mom death, she slowly comes out of her shell thanks to writing back to mystery boy. Will Juliet ever find the guy who wrote the letter?

He slowly connects with the letters and can express how he feels. Opening up his secrets to a girl he can relate to. Will he be able to come confront his secrets?

This book was a quick read to me. I was so engrossed with the story and the characters lives. I’m looking forward to reading more Brigid Kemmerer books. If you looking for a book that deal with lost, then you might like, Letters to the Lost.

{Blog Tour} You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn

ABOUT YOU’D BE MINE:

Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.

But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.
Erin Hahn’s thrilling debut, You’d Be Mine, asks: can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?

My review:

You’d be Mine was such a good read. I finish it in one night. The storytelling was good and can connected well with the characters.

Annie deals with a haunting pass of her famous parents. She writes and sings music locally, afraid of repeating her parents downfall. When country star, Clay comes along with a offer. Will she be able to leave her past behind?

Clay is the bad news, he is such a hot mess. In order to change his life around, he is forced to recruit Annie. With these two always butting head, will Clay leave tour a change man?

I like the chemistry between Annie and Clay in the book. They always fighting with each witch was fun to read. This book has some country vibe feeling to it. I was happy to a part of the blog tour. This book for someone who like little romance and enjoy some music.

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!!

Journey to the magical world of Erthia in these two exciting prequels to The Black Witch by critically acclaimed author Laurie Forest.


Wandfasted

Twenty years before Elloren Gardner enrolled at the illustrious Verpax University, Erthia was rent asunder during the devastating Realm War. When Tessla Harrow is driven from her home by the fighting, she discovers a depth of power she never knew she had…and an irresistible draw toward Vale Gardner, the son of the most powerful mage her people have ever known-the Black Witch.

Light Mage

Before Elloren Gardner came to possess the White Wand of myth, the Wand was drawn to another bearer: Sagellyn Gaffney. Sage’s affinity for light magery, a rare skill among Gardnerians, makes her the perfect protector for the one tool that can combat the shadows spreading across Erthia. But in order to keep the Wand safe from the dark forces hunting for it, Sage must abandon everything she once knew and forge a new path for herself…a dangerous course that could lead to either triumph or utter ruin.
