Review: 7th Heaven

7th Heaven 7th Heaven by James Patterson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I kind of forgot how good this series of books are. With the twelfth one just released, I realized I was falling way behind.


Two storylines ran through this one. Wealthy people are being tied up in their homes and murdered via the home being set on fire. Also, the young (teenage) son of a prominent man has disappeared and a young prostitute is being questioned, as someone saw the boy coming out of her house on the night he disappeared.

while this was not one of my favorite books out of the series, it was interesting enough and fast past enough to not want to quite. give it a try!

Review: Vanishing Girls

Vanishing Girls Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story is told from the point of view of Nick, the main character, and her sister, Dara. Immediately the reader is drawn to Nick as a sympathetic character. She is a straight A student, has a job and is overall responsible. Meanwhile her sister Dara is a wild child. Partying, drinking, experimenting drugs and other things, it is hard to like Dara at first. But, because the book is told in first person moving between characters' points of view, Dara surprisingly slowly begins to grow on the reader.

This book has a jaw dropping twist that you did not see coming at all and will have you thinking WTF.

Seriously one of the best young adult novels i have read this year.

well worth the read!

Review: That Summer

That Summer That Summer by Sarah Dessen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was a cute quick read about a girl named Haven as she adjusts to her parents divorce, her father's new wife, and her sister's approaching wedding. Haven reminisces about a particular summer when her family was united and happy and her sister's boyfriend, Sumner, was the glue that held them together.

The book did drag out longer than it should, but all in all was very cute fun read. A great book for the beach.

Book Review: Pretty Wicked by Kelly Charron

Pretty WickedPretty Wicked by Kelly Charron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.

Yup saw the title and knew I had to read this book. I have always loved thriller books and anything to do with a good murder….

Add a teenage GIRL serial killer… BINGO….. winner winner chicken dinner!

** I might make a side note that some of the content in the book could be a little troubling for younger readers who are not use to the whole blood and guts type book **


Ryann is a pretty typical teenager. She's 15 and in her parents' eyes, she never quite compares with her older sister. She's a straight A student, a cheerleader, has many friends, and never gets into trouble. Her dad is a homicide detective, her mom a waitress in a small town.

Her first victim came about when Ryann was 9 years old. ... A bratty little girl that her sister babysat. She also takes out the girl who stole her boyfriend, a teacher, a customer at her mother's restaurant, and many more. She loves the fact that she's the person responsible for making the police crazy, for residents locking their doors.

But little does she know someone has been watching….

Grunt by Kailee Reese Samuels blitz

Grunt
Kailee Reese Samuels
(The SOS #3)
Publication date: May 30th 2017
Genres: Erotica, Romance

Six days.

No one thought I could last
Here in the cell—I now call home
They didn’t know I grew up in the prison of my crime family’s dream.

Six weeks.

No one thought I could withstand
The loss, the drugs, the torture
They didn’t know how much I would enjoy their game.

Six months.

No one thought I could survive
Their puppet and prey—but I like to play—Hard.
And I don’t lose.

They picked the wrong guy. Their so-called ‘grunt’ would fight to get home and take revenge. I vowed to come back—for her—for Kaci. But everything changed.

My maniacal mind wrapped with a pretty mug, I am an unforgiving opponent, tough—tougher than they ever imagined.

And I will never – ever – break.

Cover Revel: Amnesia by Cambria Hebert

Amnesia
Cambria Hebert
Publication date: June 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

I washed ashore in a little lake town.
A place where everyone knows everyone, yet…
No one knows me.
I don’t know me.
If a woman doesn’t know her own name, does she really exist?
I don’t know my natural hair color, my birthdate, or where I live.
I am invisible.
To everyone, to everything, even to myself.
Except to him.
I see the recognition deep in his stare, the way it lingers on my face as if I’m a puzzle he’s desperate to put together.
I just want answers, the truth… knowledge.
His lips are sealed. Still, his eyes beguile me.
I can’t trust anyone, not even myself. Someone wants me dead, the same someone who tried to bury me in a watery grave.
They’ll come for me again… I won’t know their face.
I don’t even know mine.
I am amnesia.
