Review: The Perception by Adriana Locke

Two words: Max Quinn I loved Max when he was first introduced in The Exception. A good ol’ Southern boy? Uh, yeah I love them. So needless to say when I saw The Perception was going to be Max’s story I knew I needed to read it. Our characters: Kari has become the love him and leave him kind of girl. No attachment, no strings, just get whatever you need and then just leave. She’s been broken before and can’t bear to go through that again, so she keeps Max […]

Stacking the Shelves: 3/21/15 (1)

I saw a couple of the blogs I follow have a blog post called Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews  where you share the books you’ve recently added to your shelf. These books include both physical, ebooks, books borrowed, library books, gifts, books for reviews. I thought this was a good idea to share all the books I’ve added to my shelf weekly so at the end of the month I won’t be wondering just what books I forgot to add to my monthly book haul. EBOOKS BOOKS FOR REVIEWS […]

Review: Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta

I do a monthly buddy reading with two of my Instagram buddies Aria and Melissa. We choose a monthly book based on the color of the rainbow. This month our color was orange and our book of the month was Saving Francesca. When I first saw the title I was left wondering what would Francesca need saving from? Francesca is our main character (obviously). She’s in year eleven at St. Sebastian’s an all boy school that just recently opened its doors to girls. She hates school because her friends attend […]

I have never read….

Posted March 20, 2015 by Tina in As Discussed by Tina / 1 Comment

I saw the hash tag “I have never read” and thought this would be an interesting blog post. I am sure there are books I have read that you haven’t and I am sure there are books I haven’t read that you have. I know I need to read these books and they’re all on my TBR list…will I ever get to them I sure hope so. I have never read any Ayn Rand books but I have tried. I have always been drawn to the Fountainhead, I don’t know […]

Review: Forgive Us Our Trespasses by M.L. Steinbrunn

I was provided a copy through Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. Forgive us our trespasses what a title right? The prologue draws you in; leaving you wondering just how does this title fit into the story. The story begins with Vivian reliving the moment her life changed forever…the death of her father. We then fast forward and meet Vivian in college trying desperately to get away from the small town she grew up in. She was tired of being “that girl whose father was killed, the whispers, the […]

Review: Falling For My Best Friend’s Brother by J.S. Cooper

My Review:  I downloaded the prequel to Falling For My Best Friend’s Brother. I have to admit, I really disliked it but decided to go ahead and purchase the full novel just to see if it got better. I am really sad to say this is the first book I have ever returned to get a refund.  What was the problem with it? Because you know I love best friend’s brother kinda stories really I love them but this one just had to many problems with it. So I guess […]

Review: Shattered by Nicole Banks

My Review:  Nicole contacted me about reviewing Shattered. Wow!!! I was truly impressed with this book. It was like a breath of fresh air. I am seriously craving more. This isn’t your typical love story where there’s instal-love or some messy love triangle. Oh no, this is was much deeper, much darker, and real. Jasmine has gone through hell, literally. My gosh my heart ached because of all she went through. She’s healing slowly, dealing day by day with her demons. She’s still afraid and everyone around her is understanding […]

Review: Zali Luna: Movie Star by Emma Jamvold

My Review:  Emma Jamvold contacted me about reviewing her novella and provided me with an ebook copy in exchange for an honest review. Zali Luna is 16 and about to start in her first big film called “Vampyre” alongside Oliver Lamond. What an amazing opportunity right? Zali will be able to kiss Oliver. How many girls would love that opportunity? The problem is Zali has never been kissed, and now she’s going to have to kiss Oliver on film. Her first kiss forever on film. Will they realize she’s never […]

Review: The Exception by Adriana Locke

My Review:  I won a free copy of The Exception through a giveaway hosted by Adriana Locke. I never win anything so needless to say I was really excited I won! Jada is our main character who just got out of an ugly marriage and is starting over in Arizona. She moves in with her sister Kari until she can back on her feet. “Fake it till you make it.” Jada was always belittled by her ex husband. He was and continues to tell her she needs him to succeed […]
