Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.
When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. 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.

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?

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!

{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!!!!

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.

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 Cursed Sea by Lauren Destefano

Book Summary:
Wilhemina Heidle, the exiled princess of Northern Arrod, the girl thought dead by her family and friends, must return home. The only way to save Loom, the cursed prince of the Southern Isles, is to revisit the castle and discover the origins of her own curse.
But home is very different from how she left it—Wil’s unstable elder brother is now king, leading a war against the Southern Isles. And the rest of her family must reckon with the truth of what happened to lead to Wil’s exile. With time running out, Wil must navigate the dangerous secrets within her family if she’s going to find the truth and save the boy she loves.
When she’s finally able to reach Pahn, nothing goes as planned, and suddenly Wil and her allies are fighting for their lives, again and again, as the Southern King is out to punish his children for all they’ve done. Traveling across cursed seas and treacherous kingdoms, Wil, Loom—and his ruthless sister Espel—have to work to make peace with their own struggles if they hope to secure the future of their kingdoms.
But when their plans lead them right back to evil marveler Pahn, and to Baren—who is more dangerous than ever—can Wil and her friends outsmart their enemies, this time, for good?

My Review:

The Cursed Sea is another good read. I enjoyed this book better than The Glass Spare. If you have yet read The Glass Spare than you don’t need to read this review. I thought the book was more action packed than the first one. The characters grow stronger since the last book also.

The book starts with Wilhelmina finally returning home. After some training and learning to master her powers better. She ready to confront her father and get answers about her curse. Things at home is not as it seems. Dangers lurks in every corner, and she is force to work with unlikely ally. Will she be able to save her kingdom?

The story is more fast pace, with more body counts and a lot darker. If you enjoyed The Glass Spare than you in for a treat in book two. If your new to this world, then pick up The Glass Spare and start it.

Happy Reading!

{Arc Review} Bloodleaf by Crystal Smith

Book Summary:
Perfect for fans of RED QUEEN and UPROOTED, Crystal Smith’s debut novel, BLOODLEAF, is an imaginative retelling of the Grimm Fairy tale “The Goose Girl” that takes a ghostly mystery and sets it inside an epic fantasy world.
Princess Aurelia is a prisoner to her crown and the heir that nobody wants. Surrounded by spirits and banned from using her blood-magic, Aurelia flees her country after a devastating assassination attempt. To escape her fate, Aurelia disguises herself as a commoner in a new land and discovers a happiness her crown has never allowed. As she forges new bonds and perfects her magic, she begins to fall for a man who is forbidden to rule beside her. But the ghosts that haunt Aurelia refuse to abandon her, and she finds herself succumbing to their call as they expose a nefarious plot that only she can defeat. Will she be forced to choose between the weight of the crown and the freedom of her new life?

My Review:

Since I’m such am huge fantasy reader, I got to say Bloodleaf was such an great read. The storyline was epic and can relate to the characters in the book. Hope more people get a chance to discover this read.

Aurelia is a different kind of princess. She must hide her powers from her people and protect herself, until she can become queen. She watches helplessly as others around her are dying because they have magic. With an attempt on her life, she must now go on the run.

Zan is the kinda guy you might fall for. He is very mysterious person at first. But he shows some kindness when he first finds Aurelia. Little does he know who this girl is. I enjoyed how these two interact with other and also butting heads at first. Will they be able to work together and save the kingdom?

This book was action packed, and filled with a lot of magic. It was such a fast pace read and very hard to put down. Bloodleaf is prefect for fantasy lovers a like. Comes out March 12th.

Happy Reading!!!
