To Reread or not to reread…

I’ve never reread a book. Ever. *LE GASP* Yes, I buy the physical book and keep it

3459513455_d1288a14b9_o

shelved in my library with no intention of ever opening it up again but I just love looking at my collection.

But why won’t you reread a book? If it’s your favorite, wouldn’t you want to reread it?

I think the main reason I don’t choose to reread books is because there are so many other books out there that I have yet to read and want to read! I have an ever growing TBR list on my Goodreads page (add me on Goodreads!), books I want to get to but something always comes ahead of them. Literally, I have books on that list that have been there for three or more years, but one of my favorite authors is always putting out another one or I get a recommendation from a friend.

But guess what… I’m currently rereading one of my favorite books…

giphy.gif

This is the very first time! But thinking about it, I’m nervous. Here’s the thing, my favorite book is 99 Days by Katie Cotugno and it got mixed reviews from what I remember. When it first came out, I think I might have been one of the only people who actually enjoyed it (apparently people don’t like teen love triangles anymore).

I’m terrified that rereading it is going to make me not like the book as much as I did two years ago when I first read it. I’ve grown up a little since then, and my style of reading has matured. I’ve gotten more into adult romance. I’m terrified that if I don’t like it as much as I liked it the first time, that I’m not going to want to read the sequel that comes out next month. Which would put me in a bad spot since I bought tickets to Cotugno’s Epic Reads book signing next month as well!

I’ll continue with the reread of 99 Days because I need a refresher before I read the sequel and there will no doubt be a book review up for the sequel.

What about you? Do you reread books? What’s your opinion on the subject? Leave a comment and let me know!

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Title: Maybe Someday51oa4Mcn6WL._SX318_BO1,204,203,200_

Author: Colleen Hoover

Genre: New Adult

Rating: 2.5/5

Overall Emotions: Annoyed, giddy, pissed… all the emotions.

 




 

At twenty-two years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter’s cheating on her–and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

 




 

I think I might be the only person who doesn’t really like Colleen Hoover’s writing.

Oh god, I can practically hear all the gasps and hate right now, but I’m just not impressed with the characters she comes up with. Sorry, not sorry.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-29971-1375905492-8_preview

Last year I read the novella Maybe Not by Hoover and reviewed it on my super awkward booktube channel, you can watch that here. I thought the poor writing and character development was only because of the shortness of the book but after reading one of Hoover’s full novels, I’m not impressed and I probably won’t read any more. I know, that sounds really harsh but it was way too much drama for me and none of the characters are loveable.

Maybe Someday is told from alternating POV’s of Sydney and Ridge. If I had it my way though, I’d prefer to only hear Ridge’s POV. This book started off pretty well, then got boring and then brought me back in to only mess with my emotions. Toward the end, I just wanted to shake the crap out of Ridge for being such a jerk. I also wanted to smack Sydney for all of her internal dialogue. The only person I did enjoy in this book was Warren, which was strange because I hated him in the novella. I felt like he was the only one with common sense.

New adult books are always a miss for me, never a hit. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because all the authors struggle to write in a 20-something’s POV instead of a teen POV. I felt like Sydney was way younger than 22. She still has tons of growing up to do. As for Ridge, I more so imagined him in his early 20’s or late teens.

I admit it was very interesting reading a book where the main character is deaf. I was really curious as to how Hoover was going to manage that. Between texting, emails and lip-reading, I think the relationship between Sydney and Ridge bloomed decently.

loudlygif.gif

As for lyrics placed into the book since Ridge is a musician, I wasn’t a huge fan of that. Most of the lyrics were super cheesy and I couldn’t see a rock band playing them. They were way too straight forward and teenage angst for my taste.

There were some super adorable parts to this book that had me screaming for Ridge and Sydney to be together but there were also some parts where I was completely over their drama!

I’m just going to leave this review at that because if I say anything else, I might spoil it a bit too much.

Cheers!

Do you recommend any other Colleen Hoover books? Or should I just abandon reading her all together?

 

How I Find Time to Read (…and tips to read more)

Reading is one of my favorite things to do, but sometimes it’s really hard to find time (it’s even harder for me to find time to write, but we’ll discuss that next week). Between my full time job, family, marriage, fur-babies, blogging and trying to stay healthy, it’s so hard to find time to sit down and read. I’ve also just started watching Game of Thrones and those episodes are so long! I’m sure a bunch of you  also suffer from not being able to find time to read (you might be a full time student, and I totally feel your pain. All that required reading and no time for fun reading). So this week, I thought I would give some tips on how I find time to read!

1.) Set a certain time every day/night to read and only read: I usually have the most time to read at night, right before bed. This also helps me sleep better. I usually go up to bed around 8:30 or 9, that way I can relax and read for an hour or two. I don’t have a TV in my bedroom to distract me from reading, I stop checking facebook and other social media once I’m up in bed, that way I can concentrate. I also turn on the Birdy Pandora station because it’s mostly relaxing pop songs that play, and it drowns out everything else in my house.

Uncle Fester Reading

2.) Take a book with you everywhere: I always make sure to have a book with me (unless I’m going to work). If you have an appointment, meeting, vacation, whatever, you might find time to read and you’ll be really bummed when you don’t have a book with you. I actually got this idea a long time ago from Gilmore Girls, Rory always had a book in her bag. If you bring a book along, you’ll never be bored.61811f80-b9d1-0131-55c3-7e676ac5e62b

3.) Reading slump? Take a break: This doesn’t happen often for me, but sometimes I do get sick of reading the book I chose. Don’t feel bad if you have to put the book back on your bookshelf unfinished. You can always come back to it at a later date! Maybe you’ll enjoy it better in a few months!giphy

4.) Give audiobooks a try: I’m not a huge fan of audio books, but when it comes to a book I’m wanting to re-read, I don’t mind listening to the audiobook instead. If you want to get into reading, this might be the best option for you. Or if you want to read one book, and listen to another, go for it! I just don’t listen to audiobooks because they put me to sleep really easy.AUDIO

5.) Join a book club or buddy read: Sometimes, you might not feel like reading a book because you have no one to discuss it’s pure awesomeness with. If you have this problem, join a book club (GoodReads has plenty of book clubs you might want to join) or read with a friend!

Book Review: The Season of You and Me by Robin Constantine

Title: The Season of You and MeSeasonYou&Me_final+comp.jpg

Author: Robin Constantine

Genre: Young Adult

Rating: 2.5/5 stars

Overall emotions: Annoyed, flustered

 



 

Cassidy Emmerich is reeling from a sudden, humiliating breakup. The last thing she wants to do is stick around and be reminded of her ex everywhere she goes. On impulse, she decides to spend the summer with her father and his family at their Jersey Shore bed-and-breakfast. A different scene and a new job working as a camp counselor seem like the perfect recipe for forgetting Gavin as quickly as possible—not to mention for avoiding him until he leaves for college. 

Bryan Lakewood is sick of nevers. You’ll never walk. You’ll never surf. You’ll never slow dance with a girl and have her put her head on your shoulder. Last year he made one false move—now he’s paralyzed and needs to use a wheelchair. But this summer, he’s back at his camp job and is determined to reclaim his independence—and his confidence.

Cass is expecting two months of healing her broken heart.

Bryan is expecting a summer of tough adjustments.

Neither is expecting to fall in love.



 

Review

Sometimes, covers definitely  pull me in and this book is totally a cover purchase. I was looking for something to read in the YA genre that was a summer read because the last two books that I read and reviewed were a bit too much of a downer with the teacher/student relations. If you’re a fan of Jenny Han or Sarah Dessen and are still new to the YA genre, I would totally recommend this book. If your a bit older, I don’t think you would really enjoy this book. It has a really great plot, but I feel like the characters were lacking in their emotions. It was a book based mostly on telling and not showing us how they felt.

I believe we were supposed to feel bad for Bryan’s character since he was paralyzed in the legs but I didn’t really feel bad for him at all. Had the author given us a flashback of when he hurt himself and what he was like before the accident, I think that would have helped a bit more. This whole novel could have started about a week before it did, that way we could see what Cass was ‘running away’ from and see how Bryan’s life was before she showed up.

By the end of the book I felt like Bryan was a little possessive and he didn’t really have the right to be. We kept hearing both characters have inner monologue about having a random hook-up over the summer with the other, but then it never actually happens. Bryan is constantly wondering if he’ll ever be able to be intimate with a girl ever again, so we’re set up to believe we’ll find out with Cass… we never do.

I felt like Tori, Hunter and Wade were the only loveable characters in this story because they seemed genuine and real. Wade was probably my favorite! I was rooting for him to have a happy ending the whole time, even if it wasn’t with Tori.

Overall, this book left a ton of questions unanswered for me. Was Bryan ever able to have sex? How? What happened to Cass’s ex after he left? What happened with Em and her boyfriend? Why was Tori always so mean to Wade? How did Bryan actually get hurt, details?

I did breeze through this book, I always kept wanting to pick it up even though I wasn’t really enjoying it. I just wanted to hear the rest of the story. It wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t the best either. Best possible way for me to describe it would be a Sarah Dessen plot with not enough character development.

 

Book Review: Instead of You by Anie Michaels

28941227

Overview:

Title: Instead of You

Author: Anie Michaels

Genre: Contemporary New Adult/ Teacher-Student relationship

Rating: 3.5/5

Overall emotions: Roller coaster



                                                                               

                                                                            Two brothers.


Cory was my best friend, the boy who I’d resolved to spend my entire life with. I’d grown to love him, gotten used to the idea of our life together, even if it wasn’t the all-encompassing, soul-crushing, heart-shattering romance it appeared to be.

Hayes was the boy who seemed entirely out of reach. Untouchable. He stole my first kiss, a secret I’d hidden away in the recesses of my heart, protecting the memory and hoping it would be enough to last me a lifetime. When he became my history teacher, it was impossible to hide from him any longer.

There was no way to anticipate just how important both Wallace brothers would become to me, how deeply they would change my life, or how the loss of one would propel me into the arms of the other.



Review

If you’re looking for a new adult book that is full of mushy goodness but also has a load of family drama, this is the book for you. Makenzie has been destined to marry her best friend, Cory, from the day she was born. Their parents told them it was pretty much written in the stars for the two of them. Kenzie isn’t allowed to date until she’s 16 though, and that’s when things get a bit confusing. What happens when a decision you thought you had to make gets taken from you?

I ordered this on Kindle because it was pretty cheap and the synopsis sounded fantastic, so I went for it. I didn’t have super high standards, just wanted something easy to read. I was oddly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book that I had never heard of. It wasn’t the best piece of literature, but it was enjoyable and I didn’t find that many bad things about it.

If you’ve read this book, you can continue reading but if not, I suggest you stop because this review is going to contain a decent bit of spoilers. This book is kind of hard to describe without spoiling.

I loved how the first few chapters are certain milestones in Cory and Kenzie’s life and then we continue on at a normal pace once Cory turns 18. What I didn’t like (not the authors fault) was how Cory thought he just earned Kenzie when he turned 16, he assumed that she was going to love him as more than a friend because his mom told him they were going to be together forever. I hated that Kenzie tried so hard to make everyone happy, even if she couldn’t be happy herself.

Hayes’s mom goes through a big loss in this novel, not only does she lose her son, but also her husband. I know that she needed to mourn, but I was getting really tired of everyone walking on egg shells around her, letting her sleep in bed all day and wasting away. I hated that Mrs. Wallace made Kenzie feel awful without even meaning too.

Though this book is supposed to be a teacher-student relationship, it didn’t feel like that at all! I think that’s because we really only see Hayes as a family friend most of the time. The first time he kissed her, he wasn’t a teacher. In the end though, I was so happy Kenzie’s mom supported their relationship, whether he was a teacher or not. This book wasn’t really scandalous in that sense. Yes, they fooled around in school (which was really idiotic of Hayes to do, he could have lost everything).

When we flash forward three years after Hayes and his mother leave for Montana, that part was perfect. I think it made the book. Hayes realized that he needed to get his life together and let Kenzie grow into the woman she wanted to be without him as her older boyfriend holding her back. I respected him so much at the end of the book for doing that.

I recommend this book to girls over the age of 18, due to the sexual content. It does get a bit steamy at parts, not 50 Shades, but close enough for a New Adult book. And let me just say, this is not a love triangle, nor a novel about cheating. This is definitely one of those books that sticks with you after you’re finished reading.

How do you guys like the new review set up? Do you want me to give synopsis and overviews at the beginning or just give my opinion? Do you like summaries? I’m still trying to figure out how I want to do these reviews but I’d love to hear your opinions. I can also go back to doing rubric reviews if you like those better!

 

 

Book Review: Consent by Nancy Ohlin

Another great example of a book that could have been fantastic but fell short. Very short.

The premise of this book sounded fantastic. I love a good forbidden love book. Sadly, this book seemed very illogical. Our two main characters, Beatrice and Dane, are far from well rounded characters. Bea has some secrets, one of them being that she’s always wanted to 51MsVSsZ6BL__SX329_BO1,204,203,200_become a famous pianist, oh and the other one, she has a crush on her high school music teacher. Mr. Dane Rossi pushes Bea to become the person she was always meant to be, but afraid to become fearing that it might upset her dad who became a widow when she was born.

On a trip to New York where Bea wants to attend Julliard, Dane and Bea find the line they’re forbidden to cross.

What happens when laws are secretly broken and then come out to ruin lives?

I would compare this book to Fifty Shades of Grey minus all of the bondage. I say this in the sense that Dane kind of reminds me of Christian Grey, he’s rich, charming and has this power that he holds. A lot of people claim that this book is romanticizing teacher/student relationships but honestly, I found nothing romantic about this book. Bea and Dane just seem like two boring people, I didn’t even find Dane to have any teacher characteristics. Why would Dane like this girl and why would he like her? Yes, they have piano in common but that’s all. Nothing in this book made any sense at all.

I was very disappointed in this book. I’ve read more logical teacher/student relationship books. I wouldn’t recommend this one. The writing needs work and the characters need to be better developed. The most developed character was Bea’s friend Plum and Plum’s dad and they aren’t even main characters.

By the end of this book, I was just sitting there like…

large.gif

I’ll give this book two stars only because I feel like the plot could have been really interesting but the author failed to give us enough. The story should have been longer in order to be more complete and less random. I read this book because I’m currently writing a forbidden summer romance for Camp Nano, and I’ll be honest, this book did give me some ideas on what I don’t want my novel to be.

Book Review: Peter & Wendy

I am so proud of myself! This is the first ‘classic’ book I have read (and finished) since my required reading in college about three years ago. I had been wanting to read Peter Pan (and Wendy)250px-PeterAndWendy since I was in high school. I’ve honestly had a fascination with Peter Pan since the live action movie came out in 2003 (I was 13 at the time). I loved the idea about this boy who refused to grow old and die. It’s amazing to me how close that movie was to the book, but also, how much they romanticized Peter in the movie that was aimed towards kids.

Romanticizing Peter

We all know that movies (especially Disney) changes the original drastically to make it more kid friendly, have you ever read the original Grimm fairy tales? People die in those, there is no ‘happily ever after’. Wendy and her brothers are living a decent life with their parents and then all of a sudden Peter shows up and whisks them away to Neverland (kidnapping?) where he puts them in more danger than they would have been at home. I admit, I had a huge crush on Peter Pan, forget all the fairy tale princes, give me Peter Pan! After reading the book through, I see that Peter actually has a ton of faults. He’s that cocky boyfriend you had in high school or college that acted like he didn’t need anyone.

200_s

Gender Roles

Here’s what bothered me in the book… how all the Lost Boys assumed Wendy wanted to be their mother. At the time this book was first published, I know that was the norm. Little girls grew up watching their mother’s be housewives and stay at home mother’s, while the father was the bread winner. Wendy especially saw this and all she wanted to do was be someone’s mother. The problem was, Peter didn’t want to be the father like Wendy wanted him to be. Yet, Peter tells Wendy to come with him so she doesn’t have to worry about grown up things, but she does! She worries about caring for the Lost Boys!

Movie VS Book

So which did I like better? The movie or the book? Of course I liked the movie better because the book gave off too much reality. Looking back, I wonder what made me possess such a crush on Peter Pan, hearing him say things like, “Oh, the cleverness of me.” should have been an eye opener on his cockiness and selfishness. The book was great though, if you haven’t read it and want to get into a classic, I totally recommend this one! If you have to read a book for an English paper or woman’s studies class, I think this one would be really good to check out. I can’t believe it took me so long to read this. If you haven’t seen the movie from 2003, watch it! I personally have never seen the Disney animated version, so I can’t give you a comparison on that.

To Die/Live Would Be an Awfully Big Adventure

In the end, I feel sorry for Peter Pan. He’s spent his whole life thinking he wasn’t loved, so he tries to convince other boys that they weren’t loved either. He has this void in his life that he tries to fill with adventure and danger, instead of owning up to his issues and trying to solve his problems. He doesn’t get a happily ever after and I’m honestly not sure he deserved one either.

What do you think? Have you seen the movie? Read the book? Let me know!

My blog will just have to take a backseat for a few weeks while I work on my novel. I’m also traveling to Alaska for 8 days, but I’ll be sure to schedule two blog posts to go up while I’m gone! Please stick around and bare with me! Summer is a busy time! Thank you to all of my followers so far!

Young Adult Book Shaming

When I was in college, I found the wonderful genre that we know as young adult. I couldn’t believe that there was something between children’s books and adult reading that fit what I wanted to read. At first, I was really embarrassed about reading books that are targeted to girls (and guys sometimes) under the age of 18. I mean, I was in my late teens/early twenties (I’m almost 26 right now) and a lot of my classmates were reading Shakespeare and other classics. I felt like a naive child because I couldn’t get into the great works of literature.

It was about two or three years ago when I stopped being embarrassed about reading books that weren’t for my age group. When I started watching BookTubers who were all gushing over my favorite books, that’s when my mind started changing about what I read. I began to realize it doesn’t really matter, as  long as I’m reading and enjoying what I’m reading.

Finally coming to this realization has made me actually want to start reading some classics in between my YA books. I’m currently reading Peter Pan and loving it! I’m never again going to force myself to read something I don’t enjoy. Have you had this problem? Where someone asks you what you’re reading and you cover the cover or make up a book title?

Here’s some of my favorite YA books (that I’ve read) that might make you feel better about reading YA:

Here’s what matters most, you should never judge someone by what they read. In college I had someone literally scoff at me because I told them my favorite book was Twilight. They claimed that it wasn’t a ‘real’ book and that Game of Thrones was way better. This caused me to never have the urge or want to read or watch GoT. If you like reading high fantasy, read it. If you like reading erotica, read it. If you like reading children’s books, read them.

Stop book shaming.
