Book 3 in A Neighbor from Hell

Characters:

Rory: has her own construction company.

Connor: grew up with Rory, picking on her making her life hell, also has own construction company

 

About the book:

Rory and Conner have been going at it since childhood. Getting band left and right from restaurants, camps, etc. Both Rory and Conners businesses are hired to work on a construction project.  Now they must find a way to be around each other in order to get this project done. But Conner has other things in mind. He wants Rorys brothers to come work for him. So he works on a plan to make this happend. Having a fake relationship with Rory. All he needs is Rory to agree. But will this fake relationship bring back the old feelings he had for her?

My thoughts:

I enjoyed reading this book, it wasnt as good as the first two. In this book Rory has a weakness for hot coco, instead of food like the Bradfords. When i started to read this book i was thinking on how i was gonna miss the Bradfords but they made a little appearance in the book. turns out that  they are Rorys cousins. That was something i liked in this book. But the whole coco weakness was nothing compared to the food weakness. It had its funny moments, all in all a good book. Short read. I recommend it as a book to read wail you wait and find another book to read.

The last thing Bliss expected was to find out that her  best friend Cade had feelings for her after they played spin the bottle and kissed. Now Bliss must choose to have a hidden relation ship with the guy she made a complete fool of her self with or be with her best guy friend.

My thoughts:

Ok so this book has the same story line of falling in love with your teacher before you know he is your teacher. I enjoyed reading this book even if it did have an over told story line.  I have it a 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com  I could not find a book that caught my eye so i read this one. One thing about this book that i liked was that when i was reading it was that it wasn’t focused on them getting caught. It was mostly about Bliss realizing  her feelings and about her virginity. As im reading it, I loved the personality that  they had. If i saw a real life couple like that i would think they where cute. It was a short read , i read it in a day. I recommend it as a “i cant find anything else to read” book . enjoy!

Eden By: Keary Taylor

 

THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS! PLEASE READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Characters: 

Avian: The Dr. at Eden, loves Eve

Eve: Part human part Fallen

West: Has known Eve since she was small. loves Eve

About the book:

” The company NovaTor Biotics created a new breed of technology, Manufactured a product that was going to save millions of peoples lives, improve a few million more. They created tehchnology that infused human DNA with cybernetic molecules. It had the ablility to generate new limbs, organs and just about any other human part. The machine was a part of you, just like your feet or your eyes. It was the perfect blend of machine and man…. But the technology mutate. Side effects started showing up…. The technology was evolving on its own… By the forth month 98% of the world’s population was infected…”

Eve lived with the rest of Eden, a small community of 32 humans trying to stay alive. She is one of the top watchers/ hunters they have. Eve is noticing changes, feeling things she has never felt. Now that West has joined Eden , she starts to learn things about herself she never new. Fining out she was an experiment from NovaTor by finding out by a notebook West keeps close to him. Now Eve not only has to help the people of Eden but she must choose who she loves more. West: the one she cant trust but feels intense when they kiss, blacks out when she is with him, or Avian the one who always seems to calm her and makes her feel like she is a normal person.

My thoughts: 

I got to say, when i finished this book i was soooooo disappointed in it. This book is nothing but resident evil but instead of zombies its cyborgs. I started to read this book because prequel, REBIRTH, was getting a lot of  good reviews…. Well, i didn’t read that part that said it was a prequel, i thought it was a sequel. So i read it, but i was a little skeptical just because it was by Keary Taylor.  At the end West is infected and they are trying to treat him, but you never really find out if he servives or not. You kinda get the idea that he will make it but never get a yes or no. I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com No i dont recommend it

Forsaken By Keary Taylor

Fall of Angels Book 2

“If you can’t be judged, what are you willing to do to save him?”

THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Characters:

Jessica: dreams about angels

Alex: grandson of the owners house jessica is staying at, falls for Jessica

Cole: leader of the condemned angels, wants Jessica

Cormack: angel sent to find Cole

Emily: Jessicas friend

About the book:

Cole let Jessica know that Alex was going to propose the night she was taken. Now that Cole is gone and Alex gets to spend more time with the living, Jessica is wondering why he hasn’t proposed. Now the council is looking for Cole, they want him back. As Alex, Jessica and Cormack try to find Cole, they learn why he was after Jessica.  As well as to why Alex wont propose to Jessica.

My thoughts:

I got to say that i found myself skimming / skipping parts of this book a lot more then the first one.  This book is written in both Alex and Jessica’s point of view. The book constantly kept telling you how the other one felt, It felt like a never ending book. The reason  I decided to read this book was to see how it ended. I guess that no matter how bad a book is, you always want to see how it ends. I also have hopes that it will get better. But the characters, in this book, just pissed me off.  I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com I don’t really recommend this series/trilogy. But i have read all 3 books

MY THOUGHTS

Ok so it took me a few days to find a book to read. This book was recommended by Goodreads.com, based on other books I have read. It has a 4 star rating, both on Goodreads and the Nook shop, so i gave it a try. I have been reading this book for the past 3 days, and still havent read 100 pages. I don’t know why but i cant seem to get into this book. I feel like im back in high school reading this book. It must be the whole “I have to change so people like me” thing. I know its just a book but still. I say this is a book to pass. I will read other books and come back to this one and see if i can finish it. But as of right now I will stop reading it.

Beautiful Disaster By:Jamie McGuire

Beautiful, Book 1

******* THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! *******

CHARACTERS:

Abby: Main character, 19 years old, aka Pigeon

America: Abbys best friend

Shepley: Americas boyfriend, Abbys friend

Travis: Bad boy, Shepleys cousin, player

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Abby went off to college to get away from her past. America her best friend fallowed her to the college of her choice to be able to keep an eye on her. America got into a relationship with Shepley, one day they went to his cousins under grown fight. Abby meets Travis and everything she worked hart to get away from comes back to her. Now Abby must decide if this is what she wants for the rest of her life.

MY THOUGHTS:

I was so exited to read this book because it was written by Jamie McGuire, same author of Providence. One thing about this book, is that the story line has been told so many times. The shy girl meets the bad boy, bad boy changes to get her to be with him. That to me was a little disappointing. But as you read the book you find out that Abby isn’t this sweet girl, she came out to be at the beginning of the book. As her past with mobsters starts to show, you realist who she really is. I recommend this book, because it is a good book. I cant wait till walking Disaster comes out. Its the same book told in Travis point of view. I believe that that book will be a great book. I have given this book a 4 out of 5 stars in Goodreads.com just because of the story line told so many times.

Walking Disaster comes out April 16,2013
