Book Review: Here and Gone

Here and Gone
By: Haylen Beck


I was so excited to get back on this site and see this was still available. I loved it so very much! It was so captivating and pulled me in with just the first quarter of the book! I loved how it flowed, the characters and their development, and just the overall vibe of the book. It kept me up and made me just keep reading! I did love the cover as well. It makes you just pick it up. It seems like a book that any adult would like!

Super bummer Book Reivew: Ninth City Burning

Ninth City Burning



I was actually upset about this book. I received it and when I saw it, I was amazed by the cover. I couldn't wait to start it but I just didn't end up liking it. I thought the characters were kind of bland and the world was hard to get into. I like the story line. I feel like it flowed the way it should but I just couldn't get past the world. I am not sure if its maybe I didn't understand somethings, if I couldn't imagine as much as I should have or what. I might pick it up again to try it since I have seen some really good reviews but that's hopeful. Since I was not super thrilled I actually had my fiance read it and am waiting to hear from her. Maybe she will love it!

Book Review: Roadfood!

Book Review:

Roadfood, 10th edition

 

 
I cannot wait to go to some of these places! I have always wanted to take a road trip to every state and this helps so much! I love the idea of going and finding a place to eat everywhere! I had never seen so many different places to eat and this book just opened it up. I think any good foodie would love to see what they have in here. Of course this is the 10th edition so I will have to go look at all the other editions so that I can see if theres any other places that are not in the other ones. I cannot wait to see them!

Book Review: Hag-Seed by Margret Atwood

Book Review

Hag-Seed
by: Margret Atwood







I saw this book on the website and was so excited to read it. I fell in love with Handmadens tale so I needed to read this as soon as I saw it. Then I also saw that it is a retelling of The Tempest. I loved this. I thought it could be hard to read but it wasn't - she wrote it so well it flowed. I was not a fan of the cover but every thing between the covers were wonderful! This goes on the list of amazing stories written by such an amazing author!

Book Review: 10 Things I can see from here

Book Review:

10 Things I can see from Here

by: Carrie Mac






 I will have to say - I was not a huge fan of this book. So far almost all of the books I have gotten have been great but this one wasn't for me. I loved the color of the book as soon as I saw it but then I flipped it around and saw the cover. I do not like the shadow in back of the words. I think it looks stupid. I started reading it, thinking it was going to be cute and something I could relate to but it just seemed so childish to me. I didn't like any of the characters or the way the story went. I was hoping for a totally different ending. If you enjoyed the book then I am so happy for you but it was not my cup of tea.

Book Review: Writing my wrongs

Writing my Wrongs

by: Shaka Senghor





When I first logged onto the site and saw this book as an option I wondered what it was all about. I read the description and seriously thought that this book would be something out of my comfort zone. I was excited to see it at my door step and started reading. I really enjoyed this book and loved seeing things from the other side of things. I have always enjoyed reading/watching anything to do with people that have gone to jail and seen things in a different light and this is exactly that. I loved how real things got in this. It made me think of my life and some of my decisions differently.

Book Review: The Roanoke Girls!

Book Review:

The Roanoke Girls
by: Amy Engel








Summery: 
"After her mother's suicide, fifteen year-old Lane Roanoke came to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin, Allegra, on their vast estate in rural Kansas. Lane knew little of her mother's mysterious family, but she quickly embraced life as one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls. But when she discovered the dark truth at the heart of the family, she ran…fast and far away.

Eleven years later, Lane is adrift in Los Angeles when her grandfather calls to tell her Allegra has gone missing. Did she run too? Or something worse? Unable to resist his pleas, Lane returns to help search, and to ease her guilt at having left Allegra behind. Her homecoming may mean a second chance with the boyfriend whose heart she broke that long ago summer. But it also means facing the devastating secret that made her flee, one she may not be strong enough to run from again.

As it weaves between Lane’s first Roanoke summer and her return, The Roanoke Girls shocks and tantalizes, twisting its way through revelation after mesmerizing revelation, exploring the secrets families keep and the fierce and terrible love that both binds them together and rips them apart."




Review:
As soon as I saw I could get this book from my book reviewing site I needed to get it. I know it was going to be amazing and I was 100% right! I thought it could have moved a little faster in the beginning but as soon as you keep going it pulls you in. I never wanted to put the book down. While reading some of the characters feelings were some of the ones I have felt and made me more into the book. I liked that it felt like I was right there with them trying to figure out what to do because those feelings were all too familiar. I really enjoyed finding out all the family secrets (no I will not spoil anything) - it made things so much more intense. I loved this book so much and am actually thinking of rereading it. When I normally never do that. I do have to say some things were kind of predictable but every once in a while the author really got me! If you like edge of your seat books then this is totally for you. Just get through the beginning.
