*I received an ebook copy from Victory Editing NetGalley Co-Op off of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
This was my first time reading anything written by Crista McHugh and I don’t regret reading it. It was a cute love story between a spoiled rich girl from New York and a cowboy who lives on her aunt’s farm. I found the story to be a little predictable. Rich girl gets sent away to live on a farm with her aunt for 6 weeks due to her behavior and parents who were never there. She has a hate-love relationship with the boy who lives on the ranch which turns into a serious relationship and Kensi changing her perspective on life. Overall, its a cute light read, and if you fancy a love story, I would recommend this book to you.

Welcome to the realm of very scary faeries!
Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms – a struggle that could very well mean her death.*
When I first started reading this book, I felt like my book had pages that were missing. The very beginning left me slightly confused especially with that situation that happened between Ellen and Lloyd. I don’t want to say too much about that in case the person reading this hasn’t read the book yet. It left me feeling like this book doesn’t have much of a direction. As I’m writing this, I still can’t figure out how I feel about this book. I didn’t hate it, it did get better as it went on. I plan on reading the second and third book to see how things end. Some parts of the book felt like they were just weird. Overall, for me it was one of those that you think “okaayyy, this book is random” but you find yourself wanting to read more just to see if they get better.
Happy Friday book lovers of the world 🙂 I’ve been feeling really indecisive lately on what book to read. I finished Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets the other day, and I absolutely loved it ❤ I’m going to take a break from reading Harry Potter and try these three books by Holly Black. I haven’t read any books by her. I also own Cruel Prince, I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on that one. But I am a sucker for anything faerie related :D, so I may give it a try after this series.
What are your thoughts on The Cruel Prince & What are you reading this weekend?!
Enemies of the Heir, beware!
Yes, you guessed it! I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! I am super excited about reading this because I LOVE Harry Potter both the movies and the books! I ordered my copy of the house edition for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I am impatiently waiting for it to arrive! I hope everyone’s reading is going well.
What are you reading?!

Oh wow, I absolutely love this book. It’s a story about a girl named Gannon and a boy named Brooks. They are both emotionally damaged. They cling to each other in hopes that they can fix each other. Have you ever read a book where you just felt an instant connection to both characters? That is what happened to me. I fell for both characters and my heart broke for them and the things they went through. Gannon felt invisible over the past 5 years once her parents adopted three boys from Guatemala. Brooks lived in the foster system after he was removed from his abusive father. Both addicted to self-harm and each other. “Their worst addictions is each other” I went to bed last night with only a 100 pages left, and the whole time I was laying there I kept thinking about where the story was going to take these two. It turns out that the story was set to take a turn for the worse. They were both two broken teenagers who fall in love. Both thinking they are doing what is best for the other. When they discover that their life together isn’t as they thought it would be. The end had my heart aching for Brooks and Gannon. If your not afraid to read a story about self-harm, depression and drug addiction I recommend checking this book out.

This one took me a little longer to finish than I thought. I’m torn between liking this and not liking it. Some parts just didn’t make sense to me. I don’t want to list them because I don’t want to post any spoilers. But if this undead beast was supposed to be so powerful how could Daire and Dace just take him down without so much of a fight?! Though, I will admit I will probably read the next book called Echo only so I can find out it means to be an Echo and how things end with Dace’s brother Cade, who was my favorite twin. He’s the evil twin 😉

I bought a copy of this book a year ago I think, and I have no idea why it took me soo long to read it, but I am glad I finally did. I loved everything about this book. The story didn’t drag on for endless chapters. It had a steady flow and endless plot twist. I will admit that Jason and Kyle and of course the main character Mac were my favorites! I can’t wait to read the next two book in the series. If you are a fan of books about werewolves and have read and enjoyed Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, then you will definitely like this book as well. I felt like I couldn’t read it fast enough yet I didn’t want it to end either. I am glad I choose this book to start off my summer reading.
