Book Review: How To Date A Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney

He’s not a douchebag;

but that doesn’t stop his friends from

turning him into one.

Rating: 5/5

Short and Sweet Summary: Read this book. Don’t hesitate, don’t question me, JUST DO IT, but only if you want to of course.

Genre: Sports Romance

My Review:

…if there is one thing I’m learning about [ENTER MYSTERY MAIN CHARACTER HERE], it’s that I can count on him. He’s steady and strong and dependable; I know it from the bottom of my soul. He has qualities I’m coming to realize are more valuable than blatant sexual appeal.

You guys. YOU GUYS. I have not stopped gushing about this book since I finished it last week. I’ve been restraining myself and limiting my posts to Ney’s Little Liars, Sara Ney’s Facebook group. Now, there’s been lots of mystery surrounding who the main characters for this book are and I’m going to keep it that way, so unfortunately this review will be a little vague.

Short and Sweet Summary: After one fateful decision Lena is left reeling, wondering if she’s ever going to be able to move on or if she’s going to let the guilt swallow her whole.

My Review:

One night had irrevocably changed all of our lives. One choice had altered the course of what we all were supposed to become.                                                                          What would I have done differently that night if I’d known there was no tomorrow? Everything. I would’ve done everything differently.

I loved this book with every fiber of my being. It was so relatable that it makes you take a step back and ask yourself: could that have been me? Would I have made that same choice? We are often so quick to judge others’ decisions when we can never really know what we would have done if we had been in the same situation. I laughed, I cried, I grieved, I felt it all while reading If There’s No Tomorrow and I can’t wait to share this book with you guys. Continue Reading

I was genuinely upset when it ended because I was not ready, I need more, just a few more chapters, please Gin! Continue Reading

My Review:

Apparently, I have been harboring bitterness, resentment, and frustration since my childhood. Now, there’s a surprise. What will the neighbors think? What will anybody think? I really couldn’t care less.

Told in multiple perspectives, this book starts with a bang and keeps people desperate for more.

He guards his secrets closely and we don’t find out who he really is and what his secrets are until the very end.

Book Review: Emma In The Night by Wendy Walker

Rating: 5/5 Bookworms

Short and Sweet Summary: Two sisters disappear, only one comes back and now the search is on. Gripping and tantalizing this book won’t let you out of its grip until the very end.

Genre: Thriller

My review:

We believe what we want to believe. We believe what we need to believe. Maybe there’s no difference between wanting and needing. I don’t know. What I do know is that the truth can evade us, hiding behind our blind spots, our preconceptions, our hungry hearts that long for quiet. Still, it is always there if we open our eyes and try to see it. If we really try to see.

Wow, you guys! I could not put down this book! It shouldn’t surprise me because Vilma, of Vilma Iris Blog, kept raving about it but it truly blew me away. Every page, every sentence, every word had me wanting more. I simply could not get enough of Wendy Walker’s writing. I was enraptured after the very first page and it continued all the way to the last period; I simply had to know what happened.

My Review:

“I have friends who look at my Instagram and then say things to me like, ‘You have the most perfect life.’ I’m the first one to tell you that the way someone’s life looks on Insta is bullshit. Real life doesn’t come with filters.”

I was so excited when I saw that Book Sparks was doing a Pop-Up Blog Tour for FITNESS JUNKIE because I had been absolutely dying to read it! All of my friends had nothing but rave reviews for it and I couldn’t wait to dive in. I love that this book confronts all of the ridiculous health and fitness fads in a satirical way and you’ll find yourself laughing and nodding along to all of the craziness. This book is a conversation starter that will hopefully lead to change.
