Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying


My Thoughts: Besides the obvious that the characters have unique names the book did keep me very entertained. I finished it in a day but I wasn’t thrilled with the ending. I felt the story was building up to a big reveal but turned out to be a dud.

Make Me (sterling shore 10) by C.M. Owens

Blurb: DALE 

I'm a mature and very pragmatic person, whom others like to call boring. 
At least I was...until Harley came back into town... 

What do you do when a girl comes back for some petty revenge against you and seduction is part of her game? 
You pretend to be a millionaire dom, of course. 
Yeah...it sounded better in theory. My execution keeps ending up in awkward messes, and this game between us gets even messier when I learn more about Harley. She's easy to fall for, even though she's hazardous as hell. 
What happens when all the games end? 

HARLEY 

One simple little goal turns into one giant disaster. 
On the surface, Dale Sterling seemed like an asshole from my past; the typical arrogant guy who boulders through life and anyone in his way. So a little revenge seemed plausible, considering what he did to me once upon a long time ago. In hindsight, it was immature. But revenge has kept me on top of the world since I stopped being on the bottom of everyone's shoes, so I…

Shutter by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Goodreads Blurb: Sixteen-year-old Day Connor views life through the lens of her camera, where perspective is everything. But photographs never tell the whole story. After Day crosses paths with Julian, the world she observes and the truths she believes—neatly captured in black and white—begin to blur.

Julian does not look like a murderer, but his story is full of holes, and his alibis don’t quite add up, either. This time, Day is determined to see the entire picture…whatever it reveals.

Did he kill his parents? Or didn’t he?

While Julian remains on the run, Day digs deeper into his case. But the more facts she uncovers, the longer her list of questions becomes. It’s also getting harder to deny the chemistry she feels with Julian.

Is it real? Or is she being manipulated?

Day is close to finding the crack in the case that will prove Julian’s innocence. She just needs time to focus before the shutter snaps shut.
My Thoughts: I am a huge fan of her Touch Series…

Sex (Keatyn Chronicles 11) By Jillian Dodd

Image
Sorry for posting so late but here you go. Blurb: Meet Riley Johnson. CEO of Captive Films. Hot. Rich. Privileged. Seriously Single.
There could never be a reality show about my life. It'd just be work and sex. Lots and lots of sex. No breakups. No fights with friends. Zero drama. Drama's for the movies. Not for me. I'm Riley Johnson. And I've got it all. Brand new jet. Exotic cars. Luxury penthouse. Black card. A different aspiring actress (or two) in my bed every night. I run Captive Films. Where we leave you begging for more. Or maybe that's just me.
My life is perfect. . . Until she walks back into it.

We have a proposal that will shock you, a rocky love history, and a conniving baby mama. you will not be able to put the book  down.  there is a lot that happen…

# Finishline (GearShark 5) by Cambria Herbert

Image
Blurb: Every race has a finish line. Where you go after you cross it is what matters most. And sometimes, that's the most intriguing. Here at GearShark, we've featured lots of drivers. All of them are well acquainted with the finish line. And as race fans, we're well acquainted with cheering as they cross it. What we aren't privy to is riding shotgun, seeing where they drive once the race is over. Our interviews barely scratch the surface, offering just a glimpse of the men and women behind the wheel. The discovery of vanished Motocross sensation Jayson Hamilton, who has been right under our noses for years, proves secrets abound. It's time to dig deep. Look beyond the racetrack at the drivers who continue to pique our interest. In addition to scoring an exclusive, all-access interview with the elusive Jayson Hamilton (his first and only since the death of his fellow racer and partner Matt Lewis), we've caught up with some of our most popular featured men and wo…

Guardians of Secrets (library jumpers 2) by Brenda Drake

Image
Blurb: Being a Sentinel isn’t all fairytales and secret gardens.

Sure, jumping through books into the world’s most beautiful libraries to protect humans from mystical creatures is awesome. No one knows that better than Gia Kearns, but she could do without the part where people are always trying to kill her. Oh, and the fact that Pop and her had to move away from her friends and life as she knew it.

And if that isn’t enough, her boyfriend, Arik, is acting strangely. Like, maybe she should be calling him “ex,” since he’s so into another girl. But she doesn’t have time to be mad or even jealous, because someone has to save the world from the upcoming apocalypse, and it looks like that’s going to be Gia.

Maybe. If she survives. My thoughts: this book was really good. this book picked up exactly were the last book left off. this book was a slow to start but then i picked up. there will be some major changes in the group of Sentinels. some parts of this book i had to reread because of the histo…

Extra Post: Duet (Rockstar 8.5) by Anne Mercier

Image
I think that i wrote this already but i could be wrong. If i wrote about this book already i am sorry. Also, if you read my first post about this book the author decided to re-release it because the book was in an anthology and the anthology can not be bought any more. so here is my updated review.  P.S- this post will be the extra post i promised you i would post.

Blurb: A Sera and Cage short story. Expanded version. 

Sera and Cage in Vegas: MMA, a formal gala, and a hot steamy night of sexin'.
My thought: this was a good in between book for the people who love Sera and Cage. the first time this book went out it was really short but now it is longer. we will learn  something about Sera's past that will change Sera for the rest of her life. there will be a big decision that will be made by the couple and i can not wait till that happens for them . they deserve all of the happiness that they can get. i highly recommend this book.

Last Decendent (Assassin's Creed: The Last Descendants 1)

Image
This blog post going to be a little different for me. I normal stick to YA or new adult books. today's post will be about a kids book. i have recently been into gaming lately. I have just started playing the Assassin's Creed games. I was in Barns & Nobel and i saw that they had book so i thought i would read the book to see if it was similar to the game. Also, the bonus post that i promised will be out on Saturday. OK, Leah lets get to the review.


Blurb: Nothing in Owen’s life has been right since his father died in prison, accused of a crime Owen is certain he didn't commit. Monroe, the IT guy at school, might finally bring Owen the means to clear his father’s name by letting him use an Animus—a device that lets users explore the genetic memories buried within their own DNA. The experience brings Owen more than he bargained for. During a simulation, Owen uncovers the existence of an ancient and powerful relic long considered legend—the Trident of Eden. Now two secret o…

Upcoming April Releases I Want to Read

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray April 4th from Little, Brown
Why? I have just started reading her Firebird trilogy and I fell in love with the story line and her characters. Her writing flows so easily and you just want to keep flipping the page to find out what happens next.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston April 4th from QuirkBooks
Why? To me the story is Cinderella that plays out in the fandom world. I’m usually not into Cinderella re-tellings but it’s the fandom environment that is drawing me in.
Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer April 11th from Harper Teen
Why? This is the first book in the duology and I am so excited. I am a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty so that is what initially drew me in. In reading the description the story also goes into Snow White, similar to Neil Gaiman’s The Sleeper and the Spindle except in this story, the two are sisters. The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares April 25th from Delacorts
Why? I have always been attracted to story that have storyline where friends are more li…

Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Fantasy
Goodreads Blurb:
Remember, it’s only a game…

Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five ni…

# Blur (GearShark 4) by Cambria Herbert

Blurb: Nothing but a #blur… 
There’s a.new kid in town, and he’s hell on wheels. 
From what we’ve heard, it may be because 
he knows exactly what hell’s like. 
Lonely. 
Scorching. 
Unforgiving. 
You may know his brother, the NRR hotshot 
(and former GearShark cover model) 
Lorhaven. 
It’s only natural a driver with his background and family connections 
has sped his racecar into the newest, hottest division. 
But that’s not all. 
Arrow may be following in big bro’s tread marks, 
but he doesn’t plan to stay there. 
He’s swerving onto the road less traveled… 
and a lot more controversial. 
He’s opening up about his private struggles with sexuality 
to tell a story that’s gone unheard until now. 
One thing’s for sure; Arrow may have a painful past, 
but his foot is heavy on the accelerator. 
With speed like this, he’s bound to leave everything behind in 
nothing but a #blur. 
Check out the full feature article inside… 
My Thoughts: I don't normally read a lot of M/M romance books but i really enjoy this book…

Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Firstlife by Gena Showalter
Goodreads Blurb:
ONE CHOICE.
TWO REALMS.
NO SECOND CHANCE.

Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
My thoughts: For me this story t…

Take the Key and Lock Her Up (Embassy row 3) by Ally Carter

Image
Blurb: The princess is dead. Long live the princess.

Centuries ago, the royal family of Adria was killed…or so everyone thought.

Now Grace Blakely knows the truth: There was one survivor, and that survivor’s blood runs through her veins. This simple fact could cause a revolution—which is why some people will stop at nothing to keep it from coming to light.

There is only one way for Grace to save herself, save her family, and save the boy she loves. She must outmaneuver her foes, cut through the web of lies that has surrounded her for years, and go back to the source of all her troubles, despite the risk.

If she wins, she will inherit a throne.

And if she loses, she will inherit the fate of all the dead princesses who came before her.
My Thoughts: this book was a really good was to end the series. the way the last book ended had us wanting to kill the author because of the way the book ended.  we now know that she is the one true heir to the throne. a lot will happen in the pages of the book …
