{Arc Review} Maybe This Time by Kasie West

Book Summary:
One year. Nine events. Nine chances to . . . fall in love?
Weddings. Funerals. Barbecues. New Year’s Eve parties. Name the occasion, and Sophie Evans will be there. Well, she has to be there. Sophie works for the local florist, so she can be found at every big event in her small hometown, arranging bouquets and managing family dramas.
Enter Andrew Hart. The son of the fancy new chef in town, Andrew is suddenly required to attend all the same events as Sophie. Entitled, arrogant, preppy Andrew. Sophie just wants to get her job done and finish up her sketches so she can apply to design school. But every time she turns around, there is Andrew, getting in her way and making her life more complicated. Until one day she wonders if maybe complicated isn’t so bad after all . . .
Told over the course of one year and following Sophie from event to event, this delightful novel from master of romantic comedy Kasie West shows how love can blossom in unexpected places.

My Review:

Maybe this Time is a good summer read. Especially after I been reading some so many heavy and fantasy reads. I always like Kasie West books. Yea her books are always predictable for me. Her new one has some fun laughs with the main the characters and the story was pretty cute.

Sophie is a hard worker, she loves putting together the flowers for events. Her dream is to go to NYC and become a fashion designer. Then a change is coming for work and Andrew might detailed her plans.

I found it funny at times how Andrew and Sophie butt heads all the time throughout the book. Also like seeing the friendship between Micah and Sophie. The girls are close and are like sisters. What will become of Sophie during the course of the year?

This was another fast read, which I like. The cover is cute also for the summer. It mostly Sophie discovering what she wants in life with help from her best friend and new guy Andrew. Looking for something fun, than this book is for you. This book just recently came out this week.

Happy Reading!!!!

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan

Book Summary:
Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:
* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

My Review:

This book is the prefect summer read. I really enjoyed Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan so much.

The setting takes place at the fair, with cute guys, and hanging with best friends all summer long. What could go wrong for Elouise? Well the fair closing next year and the boy she likes is dating someone else. With a little plotting and scheming, can Elouise have the perfect summer or will it all fall a part?

This book was quick read with some laughs and fun. So get ready to enjoy the summer feeling book, with little romance and lots of pool side fun.

Happy Reading!!!

My Review:

So excited to get back into the ugiles series world. This book has a new story and new characters to enjoy. There some references to some of the characters from the ugiles series. If you have yet read the ugiles books, you don’t have to read this review.

I do enjoy Frey and Rafi sister bond they have them for each. You get to see how Frey struggle where she belongs. She been training her life in hiding and pretend to her sister double. I like how she grows in the book and becomes her own person.

I like seeing how Rafi puts on a brave face. In the media and everyday life she must pretend to be perfect. Inside she struggles going against her father and protecting her sister. Will these sisters be able to stop their father in time?

The book is action pack and fun. A simple quick read and I enjoy every minute of it. If your a fan of Scott Westerfeld works then this book for you. The book comes Sept. 11.

{Arc Review} Sadie by Courtney Summers

Book summary:
Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.
But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meagre clues to find him.
When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

My Review:

This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. Really enjoy the twists and turn to it. The story and the characters were well written and very good.

Sadie and Mattie, I enjoy we get a history of how the girls grew up together. It was a difficult life they had growing up but they work through it together, until Mattie shows up dead. Now Sadie on on the run to track down Mattie’s killer. Will Sadie be able to get the answers she needs and find justice for her sister?

This book more for older teens. It has some sensitive topics in it. Still it a good mystery/thriller book. It comes out this week. Looking for something new mystery, then I suggest this book.

Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer

Book Summary:
Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” But when her mom brings home a live specimen, Nita decides she wants out — dissecting living people is a step too far.
But when she tries to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold on the black market in his place — because Nita herself is a supernatural being. Now Nita is on the other side of the bars, and there is no line she won’t cross to escape and make sure no one can ever capture her again.
Nita did a good deed, and it cost her everything. Now she’s going to do a lot of bad deeds to get it all back.

My Review:

This book was so bloody awesome. I loves just about everything in it. The two main characters I did enjoy so much. So looking forward to book two.

I loved Nita and Kovit story. It mostly Nita story but she team up with Kovit. Nita love to dissect dead bodies and Kovit enjoys to torture people. They both have high morals and try to be good. I liked their bond they have as they try see the good each other. Can they really trust each other to escape from the horrors they are facing?

I recommend this book for older teens. There a lot of gore and body parts in this book. The story has tons of magical creatures like vampires, unicorns and ghouls. It such an original story that I have fallen in love with. Hope more readers get a chance to enjoy this book.

Happy Reading!

The story there is a curse years ago between the Goodes and the Fears. Yes I forgot what it was. Lucky the books of the story is released in the young adult section.

Yes now onto the book with a curse. Who say getting marry was gonna be easy? When your a fear and a deadly curse is placed on your family. It up to to one sister to save her family from the curse and rekindle her sister bond. Will she make it in time?

{Arc Review} Mirage by Somaiya Daud

Book Summary:
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.
But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.
As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.

My Review:

I did liked the story idea of this book. The cover is also pretty looking. I did like some of the characters in the book.

I like Amani in the book. Thought she was brave to stand in for the princess. Also thought she was foolish at time like for falling in love with the prince, while her life was on the line. How long can Amani last on pretending to a princess?

Thought the book was a slow pace read to me. It could have been action packed but it’s just me. If you guys love slow pace read then you might enjoy it. If your unsure to read the book then try it out at the library. The ending did make me a little curious on what happens next. This book comes out next week the 28th.

Happy Reading!
