New Release and Excerpt: Love in the Friend Zone by Molly E. Lee

LOVE IN THE FRIEND ZONE by Molly E. Lee is live! Check out the excerpt below!
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:
How can she hook up the boy of her dreams with the girl of his?
The only thing worse than not being able to tell your best friend you’re head over heels in love with him? Having to smile and nod when he enlists your help to ensnare the girl of his dreams.
Braylen didn’t even want to go to Lennon Pryor’s epic graduation-night party, but when Fynn begs her to be his “wingwoman,” she can’t deny him. Talking up her BFF—how he’s magic behind a camera, with a killer sense of humor, and eyelashes that frame the most gorgeous blue eyes in the history of forever—is easy. Supporting his efforts to woo someone so completely wrong for him? Not so much.
Fynn knows that grad night is his last shot to find true love before leaving for college. And thanks to Bray, he gets his chance with the beautiful Katy Evans. But over the course of the coolest party of their high school careers, he starts to see that perhaps what he really wants has been in front of him all along. Bray’s been his best friend since kindergarten, though, and he’d rather have her in his life as a friend than not at all.


EXCERPT:

His eyes found mine before looking around the room. “It went by fast, didn’t it?”
I nodded, recalling the first day we’d walked into this room freshman year. Fynn had held the door open for me, more out of habit than an attempt to be a gentleman, and had announced to the seniors that I was their new editor-in-chief. Of course, I hadn’t earned the position yet, but I had by the end of the year—which quickly made him the star photographer.
Not that being my best friend made it happen—the boy had a knack for capturing the most stunning images imaginable—but we’d been friends since kindergarten; there was no way I wasn’t giving him all the prime stories to cover.
An easy grin shaped my lips as I thought all the way back to the first day I’d met him. Don Trainer—who would always be the school bully—had stolen my favorite red crayon and snapped it in half, laughing the way only evil maniacs could as I cried my eyes out. Fynn had shoved him so hard his butt hit the activity mat with a thud loud enough to stop my tears. He then took my broken pieces of crayon to the teacher and asked for tape. He returned it to me, a thick bandage of scotch tape around its middle. We’d been inseparable since.
“What are you smiling at?” he asked, nudging me with his elbow. The move shot a thrill of warmth through my chest.
I blinked a few times, mentally cursing the rapidly approaching graduation ceremony forcing my mind to overrun with memories. “Just thinking about how you’ve always been the Prince Charming sort.”

Book Review: Miles Morales by Jason Reynolds

img_8281*not the final cover

Rating: 3.75 Bookworms

Short and Sweet Summary: When life begins to get too overwhelming Miles starts to think that maybe the superhero life isn’t for him. However, something is amiss in his school and he needs to figure out what it is before it’s too late.

Genre: YA Sci-Fi Superheroes

My Review:

 Miles rolled the mask over his forehead, over his eyes. For a split second, darkness. Then he lined up the holes so his vision cleared and continued stretching it over his nose, mouth, and chin. He looked at himself in the mirror. Spider-Man.

Wow, you guys! This was the first time I’ve picked up a middle grade book since well…. middle school! But how could I not?! It was freaking Spider-Man/Miles Morales and the iconic Jason Reynolds wrote it! Win, win, win!

Book Review: Leona: The Die Is Cast by Jenny Rogneby

img_8288

Rating: 3.75  Bookworms

Short and Sweet Summary: After a seven-year-old girl robs a bank Detective Leona Lindberg is put on the case to solve the mystery.

Genre: Crime Thriller

My Review:

Should I simply tell it the way it was? That the Leona that most people knew was not me. That since I was little I had mechanically imitated other people to learn to fit in. Be accepted. That I couldn’t handle it anymore.

Leona is unlike any character that I’ve ever read before. I’m relatively new to the crime/thriller/suspense genre and it’s been a fascinating journey. Please take this review with a grain of salt because as a newbie I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I’m still getting used to the main character having no redeemable qualities, such as Leona. I believe that people generally try to find the best in others but try as I might Leona is simply not a good person. One might say that her one good characteristic is her fondness for children but at the end of the day she’ll still put her own needs above the needs of others, including her own children.

Rating: 4 Bookworms

Short and Sweet Summary: When Maddie wins the lottery, after buying a ticket on a whim, she thinks that all of her problems are gone but can money truly buy happiness?

Genre: YA Contemporary

My Review:

I sat on my bed and stared at my bank balance on my phone. Thirty-three million, five hundred fifty-six thousand, two hundred and six dollars and forty-two cents.

This is the perfect beach read for 2017. Light, fun, and charming this book had me hooked from the first page. It’s perfect tale of love, family, and how being a multimillionaire doesn’t always solve all of your problems–shocking, I know.
