Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt

Review: When It’s Real by Erin Watt

May 29, 2017 Reviews 4

All I can say is WOW!!! When It’s Real by the author duo known as was a fantastic, contemporary read (and friends that comes from someone who doesn’t care for contemporary). Following the story of a former teen heart throb wanting to remake his rockstar image and the girl hired to be his fake girlfriend, I could not read it fast enough! I loved the characters, the story, and the combustible romance that followed. Oakley Ford is an enigma. I honestly wanted to hate him. He is arrogant and entitled, two things I personally cannot stand, yet Oak grew on me. The… Read more »

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. This week I’m impatiently waiting on Thief’s Cunning by . This is a companion novel to the author’s debut Assassin’s Heart. I LOVED this book so much. It was one of my favorites from 2016. When I found out there was a companion novel about the little girl she rescued, I may have fangirled a bit. I cannot wait to read more from this world. The author’s twist on the classic Romeo & Juliet was perfection so I have high hopes for… Read more »

So this month’s topic is “Celebrating Mom! Who is your favorite literary mom?” I read a LOT of YA dystopia, and to be honest, parents are usually missing from these. They are either discussed vaguely and rarely show up in… Read more »

Review: Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

Review: Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

April 6, 2017 Reviews 3

Okay I have to admit something….Losing Kyler by blew me away! I’m not usually a fan of YA contemporary, mainly because I loathe drama and teen angst. Knowing this about me, you are probably wondering why I even bothered reading this book. Honestly, it’s because I love the author and her other sci-fi series. is the master at writing complex characters, heart-stopping action/suspense, and swoon-worthy kisses. Seriously, sometimes a kiss takes a couple of pages worth of a book….that is one heck of a kiss! But I digress, Losing Kyler is written in the same vein as The Royals series by Erin Watt. There is… Read more »
