Things I Love
by Megan Morton

It's been a while...

that I haven't been able to update this blog. I have been reading though, and I will list the books with a little review. I actually keep track with my list on goodreads.com I love that website. I don't usually add my reviews there but I do like to keep track of my readings, my to be read list and also to see what new books come out. It is so much easier to see more examples of books of the same topic, like similar titles or authors.

I am going to try to put them in order from the newest to the older. BTW I have read a LOT of Designer books since I moved to my new apartment and I am going to list to the ones I liked the most in the next post.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Han Jenny- I loved this book! It was so easy to read, a natural YA book, a natural girl who is in love. She writes letters to the all the guys she once love in form of a relief, to let it all out. One day those letters were sent away, she does not know who did it, but now all of her feelings and secrets are all out. 

One more Chance by Abbi Glines- I was really looking forward to read this book, I loved the first one of Grant's story, but this one not so much! I seriously couldn't wait to finish it! I am so disappointed. I love Abbi, I  always had and I love most of her books, but lately I just cannot read them.

Bleakable by Tammara Webber- I listed to this Book CD and even though I really enjoy listening his the voice and the way that I can listen to stories in my car. I read the first book which was Jacqueline's POV and I loved it, but this one it was the Lucas' POV I didn't quit enjoy. (You know how I am with guys perspective)

No in Between by Lisa Renee Jones book #4 of the Inside Out series- This book is all about secrets, mystery. These books are about the disappearance of a woman call Rebecca. When Ava discovered Rebecca's personal journals she decides to look for her. My post for the first book is here. Even thought we discovered some big secrets at the end of the third book, this book is also really good and won't disappoint you!

I am sure I am missing at least one more, I'll try to remember.

A Beautiful Dark

by Jocelyn Davies

OMG! This book will be the next movie saga! This book remind me so much to the twilight trilogy except there is no vampires and no werewolves lol. There are two handsome guys fighting for a girl though. These two are not some regular high school guys, these are different in another way, they have a special assignment. Skye is a girl with plans, she knows that if she wants to make it for Columbia University she needs to work for it. She was doing great until these two guys showed up to her life. She is torn between these two handsome and totally different from one another. Asher is dark, spontaneous, and wild, but Devin brings her calm, care and he is fair. There is a reason why they came looking for her, a mystery, a purpose. I seriously loved this first book, of course I am reading part 2 and 3. I can really picture that these trilogy would make an excellent movie saga.

Here is the link  to read the reviews in goodreads.com

This would be my Asher

And this my Devin (Douglas Booth)

Say what you will

by Cammie McGovern

I just finished reading this book, and I don't know what to think of it. Part of me loves it, and the other not so much. This book is about Amy a disabled girl, who is really smart, writes beautifully stories, but she is alone. By disabled I mean because she cannot walk without her walker, she cannot talk without her computer, and she cannot have friends because of this. There is also Matthew, another student with problems of his own, he has a problem that has been increasing over the time. Amy and Matthew has know each other since 2nd grade, but had never the courage to talk to one another. Now, on their Senior year they get to do it, and they discover that have a lot more in common than they ever thought. I love the beginning of the book, the ending not so much, something happened before the end that I was not expecting and the ending even more. This book has a
The Fault in Our Stars feel, in case if you want to read.

 btw I loved the cover of the book!


Tangled by Emma Chase

This was an awesome book!! It is hard to explain what is it about, it is a romance book, it has some steamy parts, not so much to call erotica, but it was very good. First I love that it was a guy telling the story, now, wait a minute! I have always say that I don't like to read books with the guys POV. But this book is different, because this is the first book of a series, there is no girl telling the story first. Another thing is that the author really knows how guys talk about, or even think about. I definitely believed that it was a guy telling the story. Second, the book was really funny and easy to read. I loved how the author mixed romance and comedy, I totally pictured the characters  in my mind, I think it will make a cool movie. I finished the book within hours, which I hardly ever do now, with that I tell you that much. I loved it!! If you are in mood of a light, romance and funny read, this is the one.

Beautiful Disaster

Ok well, I remember a long time ago, (probably last year) that I tried reading this book. For some reason it didn't work out so much, and I don't know why. I decided to add this book to my TBR list once again, after I went to a signing last year with my friend Jasmine, Colleen Hoover, Abbi Glines and Jamie McGuire. I saw that a lot of people actually went to see Jamie, then I figured that her book was good so I kept it on my list. I loved that book! I mean I don't want to say that it's one of my favorites, but it is right there on the edge. The book is about this hot, flirty, cute, nerdy Travis Maddox....did I mention, he is also a street fighter! oh yeah oh yeah!

Abbi Abernathy is the new girl in Eastern University, she meets Travis for the first time in an underground fight. She happens to be really close to where Travis was fighting, that when he punched the other guy in the nose, all the blood got to Abbi's clothes, and this is the moment that they both saw each other for the first time. Travis is well known at the university for being a casanova actually there is a rumor that he has gone out with about half of the school girls. Abbi doesn't gets charm by his looks right away (I loved her character) she is a smart ass, she doesn't stay quiet and she is really funny. Maybe this is the same reason that caught Travis' attention for her. She doesn't go easy on him of course, and I liked that, she actually has bigger problems to deal with, like her father, money and luck yes luck! you get to find out about if you read this book. Although the book was kind of long, it was really good, the book is really original and does not compared to other books. I understand now why people loved it.




I had this book on my TBR list, and I finally got to read it. I read a lot of good reviews on goodreads.com and I had to have it. Truly, I didn't know what was it about, I just thought it was going to be some hot and steamy book, but guess what? it wasn't. The book is good don't get me wrong, I really liked it, and you know what? it turned out to be better this way. As you might of read on my recent posts, I kind of got tired of the same kind of book, they start the same way, they finish the same way, only a few differences here and there. It's always good to read a different kind of book right? I do love romance books of course, but like I always say, after 50 Shades (the phenomenon) some authors just go for the same theme kind of book. 

 And after my little introduction, just back to the book. The story is about Emily whose mom just died, and she decides to follow her dreamy boyfriend to NY. Emily desperate to find happiness back to life, comes to NY with him, finds a job as a waitress in an Italian restaurant (for now) and lives with her best friend (I forgot her name). All of this sounds good until she gets to deliver food to a charming, rich and hot guy, Gavin. Gavin gets charm right away for Emily, and starts looking for her, following her around until he finds out that she is his best friends girlfriend. This is not easy for either of them, because they both have strong feelings for each other, but having Dillon right in the middle makes everything a lot more complicated. But wait! there is a twist in this story and I'm sure you might like.
