Rating: 5/5 Bookworms

Short and Sweet Summary: Merit is deemed the keeper of secrets in the Voss family, but when the secrets become too much who is going to be there for her?

Genre: Fiction

My Review:

I’m tired of everything I say not having meaning to anyone. I’ll just stop talking so that when I do talk, my words will count.

Oh man you guys, I really loved this book. I’m going to try and do my best writing this review because typically the more I love a book the more difficult it is to write the review. I don’t think there’s enough words in the English language to accurately describe how much this book touched me, on a soul deep level. This book really focuses on mental illness and as someone that has struggled with anxiety and depression for many, many years it really resonated with me. If you suffer from mental illness, know someone that does, or even don’t know anything about it I highly suggest that you pick this book up.

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.

Rating:  5/5 Bookworms

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.

Genre: YA Contemporary

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

If someone were trying to hurt Lincoln, she would splatter brains on concrete.

Wow, you guys this book has quickly become one of my favorite reads of 2017. It captivated me from the get go and I was not ready for it to end. The raw emotion in this book would get to anyone. I was genuinely upset when it ended because I was not ready, I need more, just a few more chapters, please Gin! Continue Reading

Genre: Suspense

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. We first meet Oliver when he first hits his wife after she confronts him with something that he has been hiding for decades, what we don’t know. 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

img_8396

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.
