Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

it feels like a long ago since my latest post,

okey i promise i will post regularly, but my recent reads you could find out the reviews in my goodreads account, i still got active over there after finishing up my books, probably the posted reviews in here just the new books i just read, like this book i want to give the review,

i never thought i would love this book! recently i had loved reading about action genre, mobster, and such as it, until i found out again this that caught my interest! actually this was the first time i read her book,

The plot, to be honest i was confused the main characters in here given like just man and man but i was wrong apparently Nashville was the name of the girl, omg probably i wasn’t connected to the story earlier, and after the movement between Nashville and Carter’s chapters there’s always the date and place where the main characters were, and at first to the thought i was confused, this was whose parts ? Nashville or Carter ? after keeping going to afar chapters i knew, probably for you this didn’t bother you but i did,

I TRULY LOVED! The main character in here!!! absolutely! especially the girl character was BADASS!!! Nashville had stolen my heart!! definitely i just wondered if i had the ability like hers it was truly Ah-Maz-Zing !!!

the cover was stunning enough to steal your instinct to pick the book up with the read cover all over, who else didn’t get the persona of red?

the writing was good good and good despite the story

like i said in the beginning, the story kept better if you went through the afar chapters ahead, mixture of love, hatred, painful of the past and you would get the answer of her why she got orphaned, it was really heartbreaking!


Summary from Goodreads,

Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin.

The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length.

Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed.

The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile.

But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter.

The Animal Under The Fur is a hate-to-loath-to-love standalone novel filled with savagery, secrets, and enough angst to wrinkle the pages you’ll find gripped in your hands.

  • Genres : Romance, Youngadult, Contemporary
  • Format : Ebook by Harlequin Teen
  • Goodreads : 4.07

Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

My  second review of this day, the book i loved from the very beginning of the book 1 “Nowhere But Here” although i didn’t like that much like the rest of the books in this story, i thought i would reread it once again, from the book 2 was getting better! until i could not resist i had to give the last book my full stars! i didn’t believe it came to an end finally, this series is really different from the book i had read!

The plot was still in the main setting around the motorcycle club the stories from the teenage best friends with the love of their life, i thought you didn’t need to read the first one earlier to be understanding of the story, because this series actually was like stand alone, you could feel free starting to read it the first, second, or the last earlier,.

Liked those previous books, the character always had their own reason to not unlike it, they had their own personality to be why their own to be just so cute!

The Cover was always got me intrigued, but i liked the second book more, because there were a lot of cover editions you could choose.

I didn’t have more to judge anymore for this book the writing and storyline i just liked it! although i always had longer time to finish this book, moreover the last book i read a little by little just didn’t want to say goodbye yet to this book, oh really i was so sad!


Summary From Goodreads,

Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.

It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.

Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.

Review, If I Was Your Girl By Meredith Russo


  • Published : May 03, 2016
  • Genres :  Romance, Contemporary, young adult, Glbt
  • Pages : 272 pages
  • Format : Ebook by Flatiron Books
  • Goodreads : 4.01

Dear Reader and My blogger friends!

This book was kind of opening up my eyes about the side of Trans people, the issues they had and how those could stay alive and i loved how this book spoke up, and i was delightful had met this book from one of YA goodreads choice nominees of this year ! and this book was deserved to get it! i loved to find out the new experience story! it was sensitive topic to be honest i didn’t support the idea someone had to change the gender, but i respect them to choose what was the best for their own life. i had known/ met some of them and the life was like the story of this book.

Summary From Goodreads,

A new kind of big-hearted novel about being seen for who you really are.

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school. Like anyone else, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda’s terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won’t be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It’s that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love?

Meredith Russo’s If I Was Your Girl is a universal story about feeling different—and a love story that everyone will root for.


At first i was confused with the story, because i rarely read the summary earlier before reading the book, the character was called with different names between a male and female after contemplating, i knew the story would be headed. i love the main character in this book, she was so brave, bold, to take a risk. his old life was far from perfect and got the bullying where he was existed then he took the risk to change permanently who he was. for the cover i liked the photograph of that chick, liked showing her side of her, looked mysterious. A lot of messages included behind the story.

Omg this book though! I had never thought i would love this kind of book! I meant this truthfully a sensitive thing to say and happening to many people. And sometimes they didn’t know what’s inside and just judging.

Actually to be honest i dislike the story about the gay-thing but this different! And i seemed vague at first, wanted to keep going or not, then my friend from bookstagtam told me this book was good and look at this book now! Being one of YA goodreads choice nominee! And I didn’t doubt that, i had read it by myself. Sometimes i felt bad for Andrew aka Amanda, the one who had to have and deserve a good life on his teenage, but had a bad treat from the people around him and didn’t help him to get a better choice so that he felt depressed. I didn’t blame him to choose what he was to be now but although i knew it felt like didn’t receive what God had given him.

This book is really thoughtful and it’s like giving you a view don’t treat them differently, when you find out one of them just help them to get through it.

Review, The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith


  • Published : March 22, 2016
  • Genres :  Realistic fiction, Contemporary, young adult, Fiction
  • Pages : 384 pages
  • Format : Ebook by Margaret K. McElderry Books
  • Goodreads : 4.09

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

i had had this ebook a couple months ago, and hadn’t had a chance to read it, and apparently this was a good story!  This book gave and left a message that

” don’t you ever afraid of telling anyone what really happens to you and don’t hide your dirty little secret by yourself ”

and that was probably Eden felt after got raped by her own brother’s good -closed-friend, the secret she wanted to keep herself in entire her high school, until she acted like a little slut, bad girl afterward, heartless just wanted to get attention from those who never saw her around, she assumed she wasn’t that attractive.

it had a good plot, started from her freshmen the day she got the awful day in her life until she brave to stand in her feet being brave girl to say what happened in her life in that moment.

i knew what happened to the main character, earlier, she definitely nice, sweet girl who was obedient to her parents, i thought her own best friend gave her the bad influence, beside what happened with her earlier. i had no idea what was eating her in mind, there were some attractive boys who tried to be closer to her with good attitude and intention, but she just didn’t care and only messing around with some guys just kept casual relationship, oh really? she changed to much after being a center of attention. i hated the character though!

for me the cover didn’t relate to the story, but wait, i thought it still, i just assumed the earlier she was like a beautiful flower in her way, then the petals just spread all over because she didn’t like that girl anymore, quite attractive from the first look.

it was no problem with the writing. storyline, it gave me a new experience reading, wasn’t like those books i read before, which always showed the sweetness about relationship and sort of stuffs.

Review, A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole


  • Published : March 15, 2016
  • Genres :  Romance, Contemporary, young adult,
  • Pages : 316 pages
  • Format : Ebook
  • Goodreads : 4.37

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

actually i had this book in ebook format a few months ago, i just read the early parts, before moved on to another book, a few days ago i looked at goodreads’ annual polling, and there was this book! so i decided to read this book again.

And my heart completely burst, okey enough with the tears while reading this novel, i hate the book like this though!

It was heartbroken story, actually it was good although i found out a boredom in the middle, early story it was like so fast seems like the ending, then we would be brought to slow story just to filling Poppy’s the last days, yup but i still liked the idea of this story, i hated when i had to cry over and over their togetherness was not long in the end (ops sorry a little spoiler)

When i reached the earlier parts of this story, there was no surprises, the story would be like that, that made me disappointed. And to be honest i dislike “not -the happily ever after-ending story” always asking why it had to be like that? yep probably it looked lame. and yez the story like this for me just in a fairy tale, the boy was absolutely in love till die since they two as child. poppy and Rune forever blah blah blah.

“when you find the boy that will be your forever always, every time you get an extra-special kiss from him, take out a heart. write down where you were when you were kissed.then when you’re a grandmother too, your grandbaby- your best buddy- can hear all about them, just like i’ve told you all about mine. you’ll have a treasure-jar of all the precious kisses that made your heart soar.” (a thousand boy kisses jar)

Kiro’s Emily (Rosemary Beach Series) by Abbi Glines

23633859


  • Published : Desember 15, 2014
  • Genres :  Romance, Contemporary, short stories
  • Pages : 112 pages
  • Format : Ebook
  • Publisher : Atria Books
  • Goodreads : 4.32

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

i was tempted to pick out this book, when i read some rosemary beach about Harlow and Grant, if you followed rosemary beach series you must be knowing her as Kiro Manning’s daughter, he was falling in love with her mother and she was the one the love of his life beside Harlow. so that i was curious about his love to Emily (Harlow’s Mother). he was the famous rock star who had the women around in his life, but the one and only love just for Emily.

this was just a quick read in one sitting if you wanna look for the book like that,

my thought about this book, omg the language so dirty ! this was like the book where the famous ones life, the glamors life around, probably when you knew the artist over there there were some parts of the life written in this book.

perhaps this just made for short stories, so Abbi Glines didn’t mention again the details of Emily condition in the last, about her accident (a little spoiler) but so far i relished the story although seriously i didn’t most of the used- language in it.

Kiro: In every lifetime, i believe that each soul is given one mate. don’t get me wrong, i think that a person can fall in love more that one time. but finding your soul mate is a different matter altogether. you don’t just love that person, you adore him or her. that person is your world. your reason for living. the one thing in this life that will make everything ok. when you find your soulmate, you’ve found your purpose. to love that one person. to experience life with that person. problem with all this is, what happens when you lose your soulmate? ….. it destroys you. it shatters you. it takes a part of you that you will never get back. no one can heal you. no one can take your soul mate’s place. that person will forever be your other half. your one true love.

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

after spending three previous books of Fifty shades series, then i found out this book on the last. i tried to pick it out and this was just the first book (fifty shades of grey) but in christian’s point of view. seriously i liked in Ana’s view! in this book i looked at christian mind, he was not someone i thought when i read those previous books.

reading his thought on Ana, omg seemed like he always had a dirty mind on her. at first from the look on three books earlier, he was someone whom as calm as his look. but apparently the more i read into this book, the more i dislike christian character. whereas i did like christian with his wiser. then i was like i didn’t want to continue anymore.

it seemed like christian’s mind was just about sex and no other things. i dislike about that thought! to be honest i didn’t read the entire, because i had read the first book, and most of reading this it was just the same, just a little part was different.

Review, Anna and the French Kiss


  • Published : July 16, 2013
  • Genres : Chick Lit, Womens Fiction, Romance, Contemporary,
  • Pages : 400 pages
  • Format : Ebook
  • Publisher : Speak
  • Goodreads : 4.10

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

if you had known about my post recently, i had finished up and read the second book of this series earlier. actually i had picked up this but in the early read not too impress me, then i move to other book. but the second right to that point. then i decided to keep going to read this book back! and i had mistaken this book was adorably sweet!

studying aboard was amazing for me, i had daydreamed about it! then i read this book, gave me impression yez it was kind of great experience! with having friends from different countries, different personality, sharing unknown culture each of it, and still a lot of experiences which would come to us. it came to Anna’s Life with the group of her new friends! so pleased to find it out.

i was like studying french mixing kind of British English! omg seemed like i wanted to hunting down Etienne St. Clair! i wanted to know his beautiful accent, loving charm look, i found out some words that explained different view from British and American and from this definitely i had just known about this thing!

“A cemetery is a plot of land set specifically aside for burial, while a graveyard is always located in a churchyard. of course, now the words are practically interchangeable, so it doesn’t really matter-“

I love Anna personality! she had a good large heart like one of it – Although she was hating someone (her bestfriend) at that time who was babysit her little brother, she didn’t want her brother to hate her back like she was

“you can have this on one condition. you have to be nice to her. it’s either Bridgette or Grandad, those are Mom’s only babysitting options. and Grandad’s getting too old for this.” i gesture toward the pile of discarded action figures.”

so i suggest you to go grab this book! If you haven’t had a chance! this book is adorably sweet!

Living aboard to be “good learning experience” and a “keepsake i’d treasure forever”

Review, Lola and The Boy Next Door


  • Published : July 16, 2013
  • Genres : Chick Lit, Womens Fiction, Romance, Contemporary,
  • Pages : 384 pages
  • Format : Ebook
  • Publisher : Dutton Children’s Books
  • Goodreads : 4.01

Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

at first, i couldn’t believe i had just read this book! i meant, where had i been all this time ? actually i had this book for so long, but recently i had just had the urge to really read it! this book was so sweet and good! and actually i was on my way to read the first book of this series Anna and the first kiss, but i hadn’t finished it and continued this right away, oh i wanted to know more the relationship of Anna and Etienne and you could still find out them in this book!

Second, Third, Fourth, Whatever it Takes. However long It Takes. If The Person Is right, If The Person is Lola… Only If The Other Person Is Cricket.

the main story line of this book was about the next door-childhood crush who come all over again in her life. at that time Lola Nolan tried so hard to forget Cricket Bell whom she said he was the one broke her heart. because of misunderstanding, they didn’t have a chance to be together.

anyway this was my first book i read of Stephanie Perkins the pros of this book, this book was the good young adult read, Lola’s parents were really protective but in a good way and took care of her well although actually they were not her biological parents. i like the idea of Cricket ‘Bell’ actually still related with Alexander Graham Bell. and in this story you could find out a little story about him but of course Stephanie gave the touch of fiction, hey actually i didn’t know that was true or not about Alexander Graham Bell. but good job about that!

The cons probably i dislike a little personality of Lola but just in the part she was a little bit cheating from his actual boyfriend although behind her back the boyfriend also did the same. so looked like they were same. but i absolutely loved Cricket Bell’s personality !

Life isn’t about what you get, it;s about what you DO with what you get.
