Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

it didn’t take long to finish up this book, i couldn’t put it down although to the thought this book was confusing, i knew to the fact this book was translation between Span to English, i didn’t know if it was the writing or translation after reading several low rate comments from goodreads, apparently it was just not me ! it was not fair to give this book my half rates because of this error actually,

at the beginning i read this the confusion started without reading a little summary earlier i wouldn’t know if where the conversation took place, it was like a blur, the movement who’s speaking up among of the characters, really confusing, the ending felt like ‘is this book will be going to have the sequel?’ omg really just vague! actually i loved the idea of this book with the trilling sensation which was brought in this story! the characters itself, i didn’t know, if i want to like it or not because the vague actions and all. Those somethings that ruined the book! and again without so much chapters just it finished right away with the lone chapter, for me that was like without breathing the fresh air.

too bad for those things, actually the story was just really different from the kind


Summary from Goodreads,

A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She’s not his mother. He’s not her child. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.

Fever Dream is a nightmare come to life, a ghost story for the real world, a love story and a cautionary tale. One of the freshest new voices to come out of the Spanish language and translated into English for the first time, Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of strange psychological menace and otherworldly reality in this absorbing, unsettling, taut novel.


So My Rates,

  • Character ♥♥♥
  • Cover         ♥♥♥

  • Overall I give ♥♥♥

  • 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.

So My Rates,

  • The plot    ♥♥♥♥
  • Character ♥♥
  • Cover         ♥♥♥
  • Writing     ♥♥♥
  • Storyline  ♥♥♥♥
  • Overall I give ♥♥♥♥

Review, After I Do By Taylor Jenkins Reid

Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

okey still in second book of this month,


  • Published : July 1, 2014
  • Genres : Chick Lit, Fiction, Romance, Contemporary, Adult, Adult Fiction
    Contemporary Romance, Marriage, Womens Fiction, Drama
  • Pages : 352 pages
  • Format : Ebook
  • Publisher : Washington Square Press
  • Goodreads : 4.10

this book has been on my radar since i finished reading the newest book of Taylor Jenkins Reid, One True Loves

“Maybe it doesn’t matter if you need someone during the everyday moment of your life. Maybe what matters is that when you need someone, they are the one you need. Maybe needing someone isn’t about not being able to do it without them. Maybe needing someone is about it being easier id they are by your side”

Always with 5 stars when it comes Taylor Jenkins Reid’s book! Sometimes I suppose, why she has that idea? So brilliant! Her writing style is not too much but enough for romance, and it makes me wanna keep reading her book, she becomes one of my favorite author! Actually my first read from her book was her new book “one true loves” and is so epic story if you haven’t read it just go find it out!

Actually this story is for married couple, it’s definitely your book when you are on that step! It’s recommended!

Lauren and Ryan had been together since in high school, after a long time they two had been together and owned everything like career, degree they decided to get married, after they had that relationship and the new status and another step in their life the feelings like happy, joy, love were gone, it felt like they didn’t have it anymore, so that the two of them tried to deal with it like trial separation to look for that feeling was still there or not over a year apart.

This book is awesome! The author is a like doing observation, those explanations when the married couples who have reached the point of “long relationship” it’s not meant they are happily ever aftet, and the level of boredom will come easily. This book is worth to read!

my rates,

  • the plot    ♥♥♥♥♥
  • Character ♥♥♥♥
  • Cover         ♥♥♥
  • Writing     ♥♥♥♥♥
  • Storyline  ♥♥♥♥♥
  • Overall 5 stars

I have just finished up the first series of Rosemary Beach, Rush Finlay and Blair love story, at first it was so hard to release the story of them they two just so sweet!

The sweet girl who could change the world of a famous rock star son, that used to do the bad things to be a good man.

If you haven’t known that currently this story have reached the 13 with the story of Nan’s love story, she was a Rush Finlay sister who refused the relationship between Blair and Rush. So everyone around Blair and Rush finally have the portion to this series, anyway i got to that part right away, because i wanted to know what was going on after they two married, and you would find out a view although not much, in Up in Flames, i gave my review on my Goodreads

recapping all my thoughts from the first until the last one I will be reviewing these all at once here.

Genres : Romance, Contemporary, Contemporary Romance, 
Young Adult, Chick Lit, Adult, 
Erotica, Love, Fiction, Drama

first one, Fallen Too far, this story in Blair’s point of view, Blair walked into Rush House as suggestion of her father, she left her life at where she was from because all she had, had lost all her mother, twin, father, the house that used to be the shelter of her, and Rush was the step-child of his father so he asked Rush to give Blair the shelter. Rush acted like he really hate Blair, but because without he realized he had been falling in love with Blair, the beautiful blond hair. Rush had to deal with those every man who wanted to get her attentions, He became possessive to Blair like the brother kept his sister, but behind those things, he loved Blair more than that.

The idea of the story was so sweet, at first i thought, what? so they two have to share the same father? the idea of that thought, made me cringe, but there were the explanation about that, and i didn’t regret had read this book, and found out my other fictional couple, Blair and Rush Finlay.

Second book, The feeling of Rush for Blair was too far, He wanted to have all of her, the conflicts about their relationship was on this book, the debate of his mother and sister (Nan) to separate their relationship, and a lot of other conflicts they had to deal with before they two became one.

The Third book, this was the part of every book which we read in happy ending, after the conflicts on the second book, they two would have the happy ending life, like everyone dreamt of

I like the happy ending anyway who doesn’t want to be a happy ending ? finally They two had the life they had fought for each other put up a little family, and having the baby. their life became more colorful.

We were invited to the time Rush and Blair met, to the growing feeling they had, in Fallen Too Far time in Rush Finlay’s point of view, what he thought when the first time he was falling in love with Blair, the other feelings that we knew the story after read fallen too far.

i liked the idea actually, we would know Rush Feeling, after we asked every details on fallen too far, why he acted that way, but for me it was too boring, because we were like reading again the book 1.

i will continue this series to next month,

Review, Swear On This Life by Renee Carlino


Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

Actually i have finished this novel a view days ago, only a day after i finished up it ends with us by Colleen Hoover and i found some similar things among those two novels,

1 The Bad memories from her childhood which still haunted her till grew up

2. There are two men who are falling so hard for her

3. Having A bad temper father

4. Having the ending with her first love

5. Having a successful career-first love

But of course still have a lot difference storylines you have to read by yourself at least you have known where the story goes. you can also find out my review of It Ends With Us by Coleenn Hoover i had post yesterday in here

so far i always followed Renee’s novels, and still made me melt with her stories, kind of sweet, forever-sweet-ending story and this was one of my anticipated-reading, i had waited this book to come as well since Renee mentioned this book, i gave 4 stars for this book like the other her books i always gave the rates.

Reading this novel was like reading 2 novels at once, because the storyline was set by her past- first love who became a writer of the novel that apparently dedicated by their childhood.

Emiline that live afar from the aunt who rose her, and lived with her roommate with the same enthusiastic in writing, she became frustrated, because her writing rejected by a few people around even her own boyfriend, then her roommate Cara suggested her to read the novel she had just read called ‘From All The Roads Between’, the novel she had just gotten was the best seller so far, after she read a few words to words from the story, then she realized, the story had the similarity of her bad childhood, and assumed that the author behind was her past-first love that was long gone from her life. after she totally assure herself that the one she had looked for entire life was  J colby the author from her past, she was into two loves, whether with her first love, or the one who had been with her over 7 years.

“I don’t know much about fate, but I know something brought me back there. Maybe I fought that force for too long, or maybe everything happened exactly the way it was supposed to.”

like always, i liked the idea of the story of Renee, and i always waited her novels to come, so happy this year she gave another novel after the last time i read After The Rain, and actually i had read her entire books, you can find out my reviews on my Goodreads account or some of Renee’s novel in here 🙂

I assure you will never disappointed of her stories! just go find out her brand new novel and the other!

Review, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

 

Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

Long time no active here, actually i have finished up some novels i read on august so blessed i have gotten some of my anticipated-readings from some of my favorite authors, one of it, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, but my enthusiasm for this book had less i gave ⭐️⭐️⭐️ rates for this book, it was not like the rates i usually gave for her books, and i was in the middle, like it or not, i like because that book got me kept going to flip its pages, colleen like always gave her brilliant story idea of it and bring up the headline about domestic violence and how to dealt with when you were into the situation, what I didn’t like, i had could guess that like the tittle ‘It ends with us’ you would know how the story went and whom she would end up with, i hate that i had to know from the earlier parts and still hope i was wrong. it had been disappointing me because i had expected i would give my full stars as well referring to the rates from the one had read this book earlier and i had waited this book to come so fast ever since Colleen mentioned it she would release her new book.

“Plants reward you based on the amount of love you show them. If you’re cruel to them or neglect them, they give you nothing. But if you care for them and love them the right way, they reward you with gifts in the form of vegetables or fruits or flowers”
“Maybe love isn’t something that comes full circle. It just ebbs and flows, in and out, just like the people in our lives”
“Sometimes an unexpected wave comes along, sucks you up and refuses to spit you back out”

Actually this story about traumatic on her childhood and still haunted her in the future,
There were two loves that fell for her so much, the future and the past, the moment Lily Bloom had had been forgetting her first love, she found out someone new An educated man, An Neurosurgeon (Ryle Kincaid) whom unexpectedly met on the top roof of another apartment. At first they two just talked about their latest life. On view months after they two met each other, the fate came to meet them again, and their relationship became intimate, in the middle she had found her love again, she met he love from the past, and that became something confusing once again in her life, from the choice she would give, whether loving her past love (Atlas Corrigan) or the new one she had just find out.
You know from the two of them i loved Ryle Kincaid! Actually that was not her fault to disappointing Lily, from my point of view, the ending was just made me sad, to find out where lily’s love would go.
The plot is good not confusing like always Colleen did
The Story, well like always something different from Colleen Novels
The Conclusion i could take from this story is

Don’t play with love and hide things from your past, if you don’t want take the risk after you have been with someone in your life

Thankyou for reading 🙂

Review : One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends, 

“It breaks my heart to be loved like this, to be loved so purely that I’m capable of breaking a heart.”

I have just finished this book, i gave ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars definitely! It’s been so long I didn’t give my full stars for the book i read, and it’s time! I got many emotions when i read this book, i keep crying when i read into line to line. From the beginning till the end this book would give you like love lessons. As romance, of course usually you will get something nudity or porn included. But this book is pure about the storyline. Although yup it still exists but not too much and fit.

That made me cry how sweet this book was! you fell in love with someone that love you back, and never thought about having two people that love you truly like that. Seriously i wanna keep talking a lot about this adorable book. Jesse and Emma is my future  relationship goal! * but of course on the past of them not in their future*. Facing the world together, traveling across country even continent. It’s just goal! When you wanna a book that lead you into the true romance, this book absolutely i recommend you. But just be aware you will cry over when you traveling the page into the page. 

But i’m still so sad with the ending, but it has the explanation why the ending had to be like that. 

I think i have to start to read the old Taylor Jenkins Reid books and i start to be a fan of her! 

Like i have just told you before, this book will guide you into the lessons about love, that true love doesn’t always last, it doesn’t have to be for a lifetime

“Falling out love with someone you still like feels exactly like lying in a warm bed and hearing the alarm clock”

“Don’t ever let anyone tell you the most romantic part of love is the beginning. The most romantic part is when you know it has to end.”

This time i won’t make a conclusion of the book i read, because this book is just perfect and too much will give you so many lessons and of course you can take a note of it.

Thankyou for reading 🙂 just find out more reviews from the book i have read before on my Goodreads
