(Review) Suffer Love

Image
Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake Publication Date: May 3, 2016 Pages: 357 (kindle) Genre: Young Adult My Goodreads Rating: 4 stars
Goodreads Synopsis:
Sam Bennett falls for Hadley St. Clair before he knows her last name. When Sam finds out she is that St. Clair, daughter of the man who destroyed Sam’s family, he has a choice: follow his heart or tell the truth about the scandal that links their families. Funny and passionate, Suffer Love is a story about first love, family dysfunction, and the fickle hand of fate.

My Review:
I may have had this book on my TBR list for a while (honestly, there are so many I lose track) and so when I saw something on Twitter about Suffer Love being $2.99 I grabbed it. 
Hadley's life is a lot different than it was six months ago. Six months ago everything was normal. Now, her parents are estranged, she barely speaks to them, and she also has a reputation for fooling around with a lot of guys. 
Sam's in a new town and his life is kind of...not that g…

(Reread Write Up) Anna and the French Kiss

Image
Books and movies have always been my comfort. Well, that and napping. Even since I was a little kid those were the things I loved when I was sick. 
I've been home with the flu since Thursday and, while it isn't the terribleawfulgross flu, it sucks. Obviously I've been keeping myself busy with books (if you follow this blog of me on Goodreads, you'd know), but today I wanted something that I knew I was going to love. 
So I went with an old favorite that I knew would be perfect and make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
I definitely have a sweet spot for St. Clair so seeing him again (after knowing how their story ends) was so much fun. I love how well he and Anna just fit. I think since you only read Anna'a point of view in the story you think that sometimes her feelings are one-sided, so you almost feel sorry for her. St. Clair, or √Čtienne, as she comes to call him is charismatic and charming...not to mention totally unavailable. 
Despite her feelings for him Ann…

(Review) Before it Gets Better

Image
Before it Gets Better by Erica Cope Publication Date: December 27, 2016 Pages: 254 (kindle) Genre: Young Adult My Goodreads Rating: 3 stars
Goodreads Synopsis:
ALL proceeds will go to Love is Louder (A project of the JED Foundation)*

Anthology includes:

Forget Me Not by Erica Cope
Collins Bell is used to things not going her way. Abandoned by her mom as a small child, she's spent most of her life in and out of foster homes.
Starting a new school is never easy, but she’s just hoping to get through the day completely unnoticed--and preferably without a trip to the principal’s office.
The last thing she expects is to bump into the one person from her past that she thought she had a real connection to.
Only it’s not the reunion she dreamed it would be, because he seems to have completely forgotten all about her.

If You Knew Me (and Other Silent Musings) by Mary Crawford
Sadie Anderson used to being considered different and a little strange. Having the soul of an artist in her straight-laced…

(Review) The Sun is Also a Star

Image
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicole Yoon Publication Date: Novembe 1, 2016 Pages: 384 (kindle) Genre: Young Adult My Goodreads Rating: 3 stars
Goodreads Synopsis:

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

My Review:  This was a cute book. That being said- it wasn't reall…

What Light by Jay Asher Publication Date: October 18, 2016 Pages: 272 (kindle) Genre: Young Adult My Goodreads Rating: 3 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that's m…
