The Best Lies by Sara Lyu

Book Summary:
Remy Tsai used to know how her story would turn out. But now, she doesn’t even know what tomorrow will look like.
She was happy once. Remy had her boyfriend Jack, and Elise, her best friend—her soulmate—who understood her better than anyone else in the world.
But now Jack is dead, shot through the chest—
And it was Elise who pulled the trigger.
Was it self-defense? Or something deeper, darker than anything Remy could have imagined? As the police investigate, Remy does the same, sifting through her own memories, looking for a scrap of truth that could save the friendship that means everything to her.
Told in alternating timelines, Thelma and Louise meets Gone Girl in this twisted psychological thriller about the dark side of obsessive friendship.

My Review:

The Best Lies was such a thrill ride. I really did enjoy the story and love the characters in it.

Remy and Elise are prefect for each other. They been through a lot of tough times together and are hardly ever a part. What happens when one of them just snap?

Right off bat the book starts off with Jack’s death. It is told in flashbacks on Remy and Elise friendship, and up until that night. With Remy still in shock and trying to come into grips what happen. Is she willing to protect Elise, and what really happen to Jack?

This book was a roller coaster ride. I really was hooked onto the story from begining until to end. I’m glad I picked it on sale for 50% at barnes and nobles, and gave it a shot. The cover is so sweet and innocent. Could read this book over and over again. If your in mood for some new mystery/thriller reads, you’ll be in for a treat.

Happy Reading!!!!

The Quiet You Carry by Nikki Barthelmess

Even worse, she can’t stop worrying about her stepsister Sarah, left behind with her father. All she wants is to move forward, but how do you focus on the future when the past won’t leave you alone?

My Review:

The Quiet You Carry was such an emotional read. I did enjoy the storyline and like some of the characters in it.

Victoria life gets turn upside when her father kicks her out of the house. Now dealing with the foster care and being unwanted, she has to start her life over. Starting a new school in the middle can be tough, especially when she hiding from her past. When the past has a way catching up to her, will she be strong enough to face it?

This book deals will a sensitive subject of abuse. I thought the book was very detailed written and connected good with the main character tough life. This book is somewhat a heavy read. If you looking for something new to read, then you might want to pick up The Quiet You Carry.

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!!!!

{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!!!
