Jamie and Jessica have a connection and unlikely first encounter. They start a friendship that turns into something more.  But can they continue their break away from their livelihood.

Thoughts: Want a sweet super fun story then you found it! Jamie and Jessica have a sweet and bashful relationship. They complement each other very well almost as if they were meant to be. They are probably my favorite couple I just couldn’t get enough of them I would highly recommend this to everyone. There was something about these two, that you just wouldn’t want to put the book down for anything! 

Trust – Book Review

Pages: 374

Publication Date: July 18, 2017

Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Held at gun point in a convenience store, and held as a hostage, Edie, has her views on the world changed. She had currently been going to a private school, but she’s had enough of the pretentious people at her school and enrolls at her local public high school. She made some new friends and becomes friends with John, the guy who risked his life for her during the robbery. They form a friendship of sorts and talk to each other. They both understand what the other one through. Edie goes to therapy and talks to John, they both help each other through tje nihhtnares they both seem to have. She also learns that John is an ex drug dealer. They may be more but what see what happens when John’s older brother, who was a drug dealer and Drug user comes into the picture.

Thoughts: I love this! Trust really captures how today really is in the world. It shows how just because you messed up, you can redeem yourself. You can take a lot away from this and how you shouldn’t have to be someone else just because someone wants you to be that way. I also love how the relationships and friendships hold Edie together and bring her up. Ed has a very relatable personality and you just can’t help but root for her.

The Intimidating TBR Pile Tag – Book Tag

I’m back with the tags! The original creator of the is Lindsey Rey, go check her out and see her books on her TBR!

1. A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t finished

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. I just have no desire to continue Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children.

2. A book you just haven’t had the time to read for

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks. It has over 600 pages and I just haven’t been in the mood for it.

3. A book you haven’t read because it’s a sequel 

Hollow City and Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs. I usually read most sequels I have but I just can’t push myself to read these.

4. A book you haven’t read because it’s brand new

It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. I literally bought this a few days ago and I can’t wait to read it.

5. A book by an author you read previously but didn’t really like

I’m not a big fan of Sarah Dessen. I just find her written very dry and boring.

6. A book on your TBR pile that you’re just not in the mood to read

Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I just don’t want to read it.

7. A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t read because it’s enormous

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks. I have read most of my big books, this is the only one left.

8. A book on your TBR you bought because of the cover

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I have been buying her books from a discount store for $1.99. I wouldn’t have bought them other wise.

9. The book on your TBR you find the most intimidating

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I never read classics and the ones I do I read for classes.

Thanks for stopping by, Emily.

 

Recent Favorite Reads – Recommendations

I’ve recently read some amazing books and I wanted to share them with you!

The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

Molly has had several crushes in her life time but she never does anything about them. She crushes on them hard and alone. She’s afraid of rejection, so she doesn’t put herself out there. Molly gets a job and starts to form another crush on her coworker Reid, the geeky cute guy. Throughout Molly learns how to open up to people and to trust them. I loved it! This is such a relatable read and makes you fall in love with the novel and Molly!

Whatever Life Throws At You – Julie Cross

Annie Lucas’s life is about to be turned upside down when her dad gets a job coaching the pitchers for the Kansas City Royals. They move to Missouri which Annie finds especially cold. Annie also starts to attend an all girls school, which means no boys. Annie has her own dreams which involve placing first at every track meet, and also one starring the hot new pitcher for the Royals.

Jason Brody is completely off-limits. Her dad would kill them both several times. Not to mention the fact the Brody has some what of a notorious past. He dates super models, not smart mouth high school girls. The last thing either should be doing is taking it to the next level.

But you know what they say about baseball, it isn’t just a game, its life, and it can break your heart.

You can check out my thoughts on my Review.

Under Rose-Tainted Skies – Louise Gornall

Norah has accepted that she will need to stay within her four walls, her mental illness keeps her away from doing things that normal people her age do. When Luke moves in next door, he starts to awaken some of the normal-ness in her life. This was such a heart breaking but fun story about how to start to over come a mental illness.

The One Memory of Flora Banks – Emily Barr

Flora Banks can only remember one memory and goes to a different country to try and find the person who she associates her one memory with.

This is a novel that you won’t want to put down once you’ve started it.

Thanks for stopping by, Emily.
