Letters to The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.
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.

{Arc Review} Fame, Fate and the Kiss by Kaise West

Book Summary:
Lacey Barnes has dreamt of being in a movie for as long as she can remember. However, while her dream did include working alongside the hottest actor in Hollywood, it didn’t involve having to finish up her senior year of high school at the same time she was getting her big break. Although that is nothing compared to Donavan, the straight-laced student her father hires to tutor her, who is a full-on nightmare.
As Lacey struggles to juggle her burgeoning career, some on-set sabotage, and an off-screen romance with the unlikeliest of leading men, she quickly learns that sometimes the best stories happen when you go off script.

My Review:

Fate, Fame and the Kiss is a good book to read for Valentine’s Day. I did enjoy the idea of the book, it being involved being on a set of a zombie movie. Which I would love to know more of this zombie movie/book they where doing. I like seeing how the characters interact with other off the set and making the movie. 

Lacey, is an upcoming actress. Still learning the ropes on being a big star and still has lots to learn. She secretly wish she back home doing normal high school stuff sometime. She always finding self conflicted with her acting abilities and who she as a person.  With accidents happening on the set and the lost of chemistry on the set, will Lacey be able to overcome these obstacles?

The book was a cute read. I did like the cover the book. Since I’m more a fantasy person, I did liked this book. Mostly I hope there a side story of this book about the zombie movie. I’m just the type of person who prefers horror movies stuff on Valentine’s Day. This book is perfect for cute, and fluffy romance readers. It just came out this week.

Happy Reading!!!!

{Arc Review} A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

My Review:

A Dark So Lonely Curse was such a perfect Beauty and the Beast retelling. I love how how the story is set in modern times. Also the cover blew me away. Enjoy how the the two main characters interact with each other.

I thought Harper was kick ass in her own way in the book. She did not let her disabilities, stop her from helping a girl in trouble. Which would she end yup stuck into an crazy magical world. Can she use her wits and charm to get back home?

Prince Rhen in the book was such an jerk. He was so desperate breaking the curse, he end up kidnapping girls from other words. When Harper accidentally comes along, he is in over his head. Will Harper be the one to tame the beast?

This book was such an quick read. I would read this over and over. Also what I love in this book, the prince is not really a beast form all the time. He just a jerk prince that is cursed. What kind curse he has, well you must read for self. The book comes out January 31st.

Happy Reading!!!!!

Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel

Book Summary:
When Maisie Winters wakes up, she’s in the hospital.
The last thing she remembers is running through the hills of her neighborhood one misty morning. Slowly, she puts the pieces together. Before she could make it home, a storm gathered. Lightning hit a power line and sparks rained down, the hot-burning electrical fire consuming her. Destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be, now there is…nothing.
Maisie’s lucky enough to qualify for a rare medical treatment: a face transplant. At least, everyone says she’s lucky. But with someone else’s features staring back at her in the mirror, Maisie looks—and feels—like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore. Before, she knew who she was—a regular girl who ran track and got good grades, who loved her boyfriend and her best friend. Now, she can’t even recognize herself.

My Review:

What Happens when your in a horrible accident and half your face is gone?

In the book Faceless, Maisie deals with an tragic accident, while out running one day. Her face was so burn up, you could barely recognized her. Lucky to have been still alive, she gets a chance to start over with a face transplant. With having a new face will it change the who she before the accident? How your her friends and people around her will react?

This book was very good read. I thought it was well written and very detailed story. I like seeing how Maisie has grow throughout the book and dealing with what happen to her. Faceless is such an amazing read and hope more people discover this book.

Looking for a new book with self discovering and accepting who you are. Then I suggest you pick up Faceless. If you unsure on this book then pick up at local library.

Happy Reading!!!!

{Arc Review} The Wicked King by Holly Black

Book Summary:
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

My Review:

This book was so awesome. A little slow start but picks up pretty good in the middle. There are so many emotions within the book. You guys have until January 9th for it to come out. Will leave you some gifs on how I feel about the book.

So kinda beginning of book just was like waiting for something big to happen..

This is me in the middle and towards the end….

Then the ending has me like this..

This book is action packed, very little romance, and lots of shocking twists you don’t see coming. So be prepared when jumping into this series again. Also can I say how pretty this cover is. I’m excited to go to signing event. Now need to count down to book 3.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Paper Girl by Cindy R. Wilson

Book Summary:
I haven’t left my house in over a year. My doctor says it’s social anxiety, but I know the only things that are safe are made of paper. My room is paper. My world is paper. Everything outside is fire. All it would take is one spark for me to burst into flames. So I stay inside. Where nothing can touch me.
Then my mom hires a tutor. Jackson. This boy I had a crush on before the world became too terrifying to live in. Jackson’s life is the complete opposite of mine, and I can tell he’s got secrets of his own. But he makes me feel things. Makes me want to try again. Makes me want to be brave. I can almost taste the outside world. But so many things could go wrong, and all it takes is one spark for everything I love to disappear…

My Review:

I was so intrigued by this book. I enjoyed the story it told and the characters in it. It deals with mental health issues and homelessness.

I did like Zoe in the book. I can relate to her anxiety issues. I love how in the book she is very creative with paper art. She tries her best to make everyone happy. A chance meeting with Jackson, as he starts helping her tutor. Will he be able to turn things around for Zoe?

I do love Jackson in the book also. He is very caring person. Even when he has his own problems, he only cares about Zoe. Jackson is close off in the book and refuse to get help for himself. When he starts to tutor Zoe, he opens up a a bit on his life. Will Zoe be able to help him?

Paper Girl deal with issues of panic attacks.

If you into with books about mental health than you might liked this read. It came out recently today. I did love the cover of this book also. It fits the theme of the book.

Happy Reading!!

*Review* Any Second by Kevin Emerson

Book Summary:
Five years after being kidnapped, Elian’s captor sends him into the mall–with a bomb strapped to his chest.
Across the mall is Maya, a girl whose crippling anxiety holds her prisoner in its own way.
Whether it’s chance or fate, Maya keeps Eli from ending them all. And now nothing is the same. Drawn together by their dark pasts, Maya and Eli know it takes only seconds for their entire worlds to change. But time will tell if meeting each other will change them for better or worse.

My Review:

This book left me completely speechless. So, this review was really hard for me to write. It deals with a lot of heavy issues and it instantly bonds a deep connection with what the two main characters were going through.

It just took one second and Maya’s life turned upside down. She helps save the lives of everyone at the mall when a bomber shows up. She has already suffered through anxiety and now got PSTD. Will Maya be able to move on from that horrible day?

And then there is Eli, the bomber. What’s his story and why did he try to blow up the mall? Starting in a new school and mingle with people who don’t know his past is difficult. He struggles with being the outcast and watches his new friend, Graham being bullied all the time. Who is Eli under the wolf mask?

I liked Maya in the book, it was sad to read the struggles she was dealing with. Her friend Janice really wasn’t a friend at all and I disliked her immensely. And with Eli, I felt sorry on what he went through and the horrible events that lead to him walking into that crowded mall with bombs strapped to him. Also, Graham another character I did not like in the book, he seems a bit unhinged and tried to take his rage out on people in the wrong way.

*This book may be very sensitive to some readers and there are definite trigger warnings.*

I really did love this book. It was a real eye opener in the world of bullies, being kidnapped and trying to move on. It’s a powerful read that fills you with so many emotions. Don’t forget your tissues.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

Book Summary:
In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.
Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.
With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.

My Review:

I thought the book was such a magical read with dragons and unicorns. I did love the idea of magical creatures living with the humans and I also enjoyed the main characters storyline.

I highly enjoyed Sky in this book. Her dragon family had been outcasted because of something her mom did and now she’s the only one who wants to reunite with her. She’s ready to do her first heist as a dragon and follow in her mothers footsteps. What secrets will she discover? Who can she trust to help her out?

Sky is head strong and willing to keep her family together.
