Skinny, Donna Cooner

Skinny is a standalone book by Donna Cooner and the first I have ever read by this author.
I thought I would have a real connection with this book after reading the synopsis but unfortunately I didn’t.  I really wanted to love it, but it truly rubbed me the wrong way so to speak. I was so disappointed because I was very much looking forward to …

Emerge, Lila Felix

Emerge is a standalone book by Lila Felix.
I have never read anything by Lila Felix before but wanted to try this one.  It’s a story about a shitty home life growing up and overcoming the bad situation and not only surviving but thriving. When I say shitty home life, it was down right child abuse.
The story of Jenna and Carlos is a really great …

Reasons I Fell For The Funny Fat Friend, Becca Ann

Reasons I Fell For The Funny Fat Friend is a standalone book written by Becca Ann.
Not bad at all!
I was looking for a specific type of book and this popped up in the search.  It sounded good so I got it. Even though it turned out to be nothing what I was looking for, I devoured this book in a few short hours. It …

Heart On A Chain, Cindy C. Bennett (RE-READ)

I’m not in a book-rut, necessarily.  I just happen to have too damn many electronics with the Kindle app on all of them. It poses a problem when I’m reading one book at home on my Kindle and then get to work or the ride to work and don’t have internet access and end up grabbing something else that’s already downloaded onto whichever electronic I’m …

The End of Feeling, Cindy C. Bennett

I am going to start with a huge PLUS… that cover is so awesome!  It’s crisp and so meaningful.
  Now, let’s get to the book.    
I’m really torn with this one.  I loved Cindy C. Bennett’s first (to me) book,  Heart On A Chain.  It was phenomenal.  I loved it. I’m not comparing the two books because that’s not right, but after being so …

City of Lost Souls, Cassandra Clare

This is going to be an incredibly hard review to write for me.
 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is and probably always will be one of my ALL-TIME FAVOURITE Young Adult series to date.  
For all of the non-lovers of Twilight you guys just won’t get this, but this series out-weighed Twilight for me!  I know, “Duh!!!”  Well for me being a mega Twilight fan (Twilight books …

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden, Jessica Sorensen

As I said on Goodreads, this was a great book and I loved it, but I’m left a little… something that I can’t quite put my finger on.
I guess it’s the ending.  Although Callie and Kayden are great and they appear to be going in the direction I want for them, there were a lot of unanswered questions for me and at the same time …

Out Of Breath, Rebecca Donovan

Firstly… holy freakin’ crap!!!
Secondly… holy freakin’ crap!!!
Oh my gosh, this has been the best book ever!  Loved it.   Every single pain-filled, breath-taking, heart-stopping, nail-biting, gasping-for-breath, wanting-to-rip-someone-a-new-one moment of it.  Emma wasn’t the only one having a hard time breathing.  I swear my heart literally stopped several times.
To start I really have to take a minute to talk about Sara!  Do true best friends like that really exist?  I …
