Is it MAY TBR time already!? No way!

I might be one of those people who just thinks the year is going by way to fast, I’m sorry if I am and if I’m constantly repeating that, but man, it is going insanely fast. which means that is TBR time. If you know something about me is that I hate TBRs but I’ve come to the realization that I own too many books and I haven’t touch them so for me to get to them before 2017 I have to speed up the process.

Goodreads Summary

I’ve been a major fan of Colleen Hoover ever since I picked up Slammed years ago. But even as a fan her book have been causing this slight heartache as I read them that slowly drive me crazy but make fall in love with each and everyone of her books. There was no exception with November 9 , I realized that as I played in bed either giggling like a school girl, laughing out loud, signing at every cute thing or crying my eyes out.

“Whoever said the truth hurts was being an optimist. The truth is an excruciatingly son of a bitch”

The book doesn’t fail to pull at  your heart and throwing you around. It builds up and up and up and you see that there is something coming (Because with COHO there’s always something coming )and whatever you have imagine is going to happen? Doesn’t happen because she can either trow you for a huge loop  and destroy your heart or flip the tables and make you love life once more.

“I Thought i was tougher than a word”

I’m pretty sure that is the reason we keep coming back tot her books. This contemporary love story that is  unique and even through the bizarre plot line you just keep coming back for more. Because for some reason even if the story is not realistic at all (or many be who knows) she makes us believe, that as readers, this could happen and that you will find you Ben “The Writer ” at the next cafe.

“I think she expected em to let her go without a fight, but she’s not the kind of girl you choose your battles for. She’s the kind of girl you fight to death for”

Fallon and Ben are such a good characters, they are relatable, they are confused and raw but also very  dreamy in that way only teenage can be sometimes (well, maybe we all  can be) The story was for hard on them and some how after all they went through they still managed to pull through and grow up and specially accept what happened. They learned from what happened and they tried to live they’re life.

“Love should be between two people, and if it isn’t, I’d rather bow out than take part in the race” 

Now is this my favorite CoHo Book, I can’t say that. But it was amazing. Once more she has done it and I couldn’t be happier that I finally made myself go through the pain to receive the awesome reward at the end. The fact that it was set up on one specific day each year for that amount of time was so much fun to read and to be honest made the book extremely fast paced, which I enjoyed a lot. Mix that with the amazing writing and you get that an amazing result.

A Christmas from hell By RL Mathewson| Another food story.

27742535Tittle: A Christmas From Hell

Author: R L Mathewson

Length: 242

Series: Neighbors from hell

Publisher: Smashwords Edition

Published Date: December 29th 2015

Gender: Romance & Fiction

Rating: ★★★ (3 OUT OF 5)

GoodReads summary  😀

I don’t know if you’re many familiar with R L Mathewson’s books but if you don’t here is what you should know about them. She is the author of the Neighbors from hell series and there are already 7 books out (Book 1  review), A christmas from hell is that seventh one and they are super funny and kind of sexy.

In a christmas from hell we have Duncan, one half of theBradford twins. He is supposed to be the nice one, the reliable, the one everyone can count on and he likes it that way. He likes to think of himself as a hero, which is why he works as a firefighter. But all that heroism goes down the drain when Necie moves in next door with her grandfather and is constantly “Unintentionally ” getting in his way and sending him to the hospital.

All she wants is to help her grandfather and run her part of the family bakery after quitting her old job and deciding that it was for the best. But she didn’t count on meeting super hot Duncan Bradford. Whom she is always hurting and is totally “in love” with him.

So as far as NFH novels go, I can’t say that it was my favorite. Did I enjoy it? yes I did. Because the thing with the NFH is that you can sort know what to expect, which depending on your taste can be good or bad. They are, like I just said, expected, you buy this book and if you read the other ones you know you’ll get your doses of Bradford alpha male moves, sweet moments, fights, ban restaurants and food. Tons of foods. and usually very cute moments between the main character. This book is funny and entertaining but the reason I down graded my rating from a 4 to 3 was because I felt this book dragged on after the second half. I don know if its because I’m used to her previous fast paced, hilarious books but this one for me was kind of… slow. But equally funny.

Duncan and Necie were super cute and I really liked her and made me want to bake cupcakes. ASAP. And my love for firefighters has grown once again. aww, so many memories ah

So, the question is,Would I recommend this book? yes. But read the other once first so you’re set to embark into the Bradford weirdly food obsessed books.

My Spring TBR |Top Ten Tuesday

Hey you people.

As is usual I am a big fan of lists. Do I follow those lists? eh, that’s a tricky question. Because I am usually making list in life; Grocery (Even if I’m not the one buying them), Favorite songs, What I’ll eat or even about things I plan to buy in the future. because of that I tend to know what I want but it ALWAYS changes, ALWAYS.

Now when it comes to book, I’m the same. I make list of books that I’ve read, books that I’ll read but I hardly ever end up reading them when I say I want to because I’m huge mood reader, something you might already know if you have read any of my previous posts. so…i spaced out…. now I have no idea where I’m going with the list thing to be honest, other than to mention that those lists made this the easiest TTT I’ve ever participated in.

So here are the books wasnt to read this spring. will I read them? who knows, because I don’t.

February BookHaul | 2016

 Hey you guys!

So we only have 10 months left of the year. 0.0 Can we take a moment yo really think about that? This year is setting up to be one of those years where time seems to fly by. Or, because there is always an or in the mix. so, OR Im getting old, my mom always used to say that the older you get the faster the time passes. and I’m 22 an thats unfair. it should slow down.

Anyways, rant about me getting old over. This month I didn’t really get a lot of books, due to me having an awful slump. but I did managed to get some books that I’m excited about even thought I  haven’t read any of them. Yet. I will go into them. soon. promise.

Between the books I got , I recived a copy of Updraft by Errin Stevens and very excited to go into that book, since I’ve never read stories about mermaids. I’m very stocked about it. Also I got the new book by kiera cass and its also about mermaids! is it maybe my body asking for the beach? probably. hehe.  oh and lets not forget about Damon Black ❤

So here are the books I got this month, each have a link to their Goodreads page and also you can add me on there 😉 If you want. (Self promoting much?)

Mini REVIEW: Flipped!|Ines Saint

23942301Tittle: Flipped!

Author: Ines Saint

Length: 320

Series: Spinning Hills 1

Publisher: Lyrical Press

Published Date: May 26th 2016

Gender:  Romance,Contemporary, Adult & Fiction

Rating: ★★ (2 OUT OF 5)

Format: Ebook

Perfumer Holly Bell has a nose for scents and a head for dreams. A former military brat who longs to put down roots in Spinning Hills, she’s been saving for years to buy a certain ramshackle Craftsman for herself and her young daughter. For once in her life, everything’s going according to plan—until a real estate flipper steals the house out from under her! She can’t afford to outbid him—but she can’t seem to stop thinking about him either…

Dan Amador isn’t back in Spinning Hills to stay. Checking on his brothers and renovating one house in the family tradition will be plenty until it’s time to move on. Yet what seemed easy turns out to be anything but, especially when it comes to the gorgeous single mom who lives next door. Before he knows it, Dan seems to be creating the house of her dreams. He doesn’t believe in the kind of fairy tale ending Holly longs for—but he can’t deny that her stubborn optimism has found its way into his heart…

My Review:

I don’t think I have much to say about this book. It’s a cute adult romance. Set in a small town. I felt the story was very rush, I think the author tried to incorporate a lot of external elements and it ended up not working very nicely. I felt as if forcing my self to read and I did find myself skipping lots of pages because there just wasn’t a lot to get my attention.

I liked the characters though, I found Holly to be very well written but Dan wasn’t my favorite he was a massive jerk from page 1 and then suddenly had a change of heart after a while? even then he was a jerk. and believe me I’m all about loving a-hole in books he was just not likable. That’s the thing that made me not enjoy it. There was just no chemistry to me in this book.

On the other hand I loved Ruby and all the old ladies. I loved his brothers and i found Ella’s characters to be… Idk.

Over all it was cute. I wouldn’t really read it again but I did feel there was lot more potential underneath that wasn’t handled properly. Only if the things would have slow down and have each situation have and ending not just rush things to be fixed.

As I always say, Don’t knock it till you try it. You might love it!

And its super cheap.<3
