Book Review: “Just Remember to Breathe” by Charles Sheehan-Miles
Here we are introduced to Alex and Dylan, two star crossed lovers who spent 2 magical weeks abroad with their schools when they were both 16 and 17. For 7 years, they had a long distance relationship (they only saw each other twice that entire time!) until one day they broke up because of a series of events. Six months after their break up (with no contact to each other at all), they find themselves both attending Columbia University, where Alex is still trying to get over the break up and Dylan is fresh from Afghanistan. This story shows that it doesn’t matter how old you are or where you are in life (or on a map), true love is true love. I love a damaged male character and you definitely get that in this book. Dylan is so messed up from everything that happened in the war and he just can’t seem to let it go and you can’t help but just want to hold him and tell him he’s going to make it. Alex had to deal with her share of shitty-ness during the 6 months that they were broken up and it’s something that she doesn’t want to tell Dylan about. I read this book despite having been told I shouldn’t (you know who you are) and I’m glad I did because I loved it! GET IT HERE!
Book Review: “Tangled” by Emma Chase
This book is hilarious! It is told in the main guy character’s POV, Drew Evans, the super hot, womanizing business man. He is not like your usual bad boy with a troubled past nor does he see the heroine and does a 180 twist. Nope! Not Drew. From the beginning, he is very straight forward about what type of relationship he wants with Kate Brooks and it’s the one that ends after one night (he describes it in a way only a true womanizer can). But his plans are derailed when she goes to work for his father’s company where he works and where he has a strict no sex policy. I found myself literally laughing throughout the entire book; I couldn’t help it. Drew is so truthful about what guys actually think that it’s honestly quite refreshing. And not to mention that the steamy sex scenes leave very little to the imagination. All in all, this book was witty and charming. You won’t want to put it down once you pick it up. GET IT HERE!
Book Review: “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green
I know that this had been done before and probably no one will read this, but honestly this book deserves every sort of praise it can get so here is mine. For months my best friend had been pestering me to read it and I just kept putting it off (am I STUPID or what!?) until now, and boy did I fall hard. This book is like the Holy Grail of books about life and love. “The Fault in Our Stars” is about a girl named Hazel Grace who has terminal cancer but because of a trial drug, she has been able to stabilize her condition. Her mom forces her to attend this support group for kids with cancer (in the literal heart of Jesus). There she meets Augustus Walters and the rest, boys and girls, is history. This book had me crying, laughing, frowning, angry and any other emotion you can think of input here ___ because you felt them all. It shows us what true love really is and what could come of it if you make the best of it and cherish every single milli-second. John Green, you bastard, I was coming back from my vacation and you had me crying like a baby in the car and while I was unpacking, but all is forgiven because you gave me Augustus. Our perfect Augustus! Ladies, I have it bad and I don’t know how to recover. He’s so smart and witty and he knows just what to do and just what to say and I could keep going on and on but it will never be enough to describe him. All in all, this book changed me forever (Green, I’m blaming you, again) but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Don’t be INSANE like me and wait to read this gift from the book gods themselves and go read it NOW! GET IT HERE!
Hey guys sorry, I haven’t posted in a while. I was on a much needed vacation but I am back and with new and exciting things. School just started so I am going to try and post as often as possible. Be patient with me! Get ready for what’s coming! XOXO
I read this book because Aestas Book Blog wrote about it and boy, am I happy that I did. This book is about Tate, who had an amazing neighbor and best friend name Jared, that helped her when her mother passed away. Then the summer before freshmen year, Jared goes to visit his dad for the summer for the first time and when he comes back, he does more than ignore her, he starts to bully her. For 2 years he makes her life a living hell, spreading rumors and giving her a bad reputation (that she did nothing to gain). When she comes back from a year abroad, something changes in Tate. She’s ready to fight back, but also, she wants to know what happened to Jared that made him hate her so much. This story is unbelievable, how they make you fall in love with the bad guy. The entire book I was fighting it because he was the bully, but when you learn his side of the story, you’re done for. Also, Tate is a badass! She doesn’t complain or let them walk all over her. She fights back! Not to mention, she doesn’t let Jared back into her life easily. She really makes him work for it. I loved that because most of the time, the girl just gives in so easily. When I started this book I told myself that I would get to at most 50% (I had a big exam the next day). Well, the joke was on me because I finished the entire book in one day! I couldn’t put it down. Definitely, 5 out of 5! GET IT HERE
Okay so this book is about a girl names Maggie who really hasn’t had the best life and never really seems to get a break. Then she meets Ran, a super hot paramedic that pushes her to confront everything that she has tucked away for years and pushes her to learn how to forgive. That was a major topic in this book, forgiveness. Gash and Ran is so good at it he makes it look easy! But this book was kind of difficult for me because I was having flash backs from when I read “Twilight” and I wanted to chuck my book across the room for how annoyed I would get with Bella. Maggie is now right up there with her! She was constantly throwing herself a pity party and complaining about everything. Like seriously; have you seen who is next to you, enjoy it girl! But two really good parts of this book was one, it really does show the importance of forgiving someone, that it’s more for you then for them, and second, it was HILARIOUS! Honestly I was laughing throughout the entire book. Between the text messages, the scissor scene, and the witty comments it had me literally laughing out loud. The book really is great; you just have to be patient (like really patient) when Maggie does something stupid that you want to slap her. Overall, I give this book 4.5 out of 5!
