Sincerely Cinderella by Kelsie Stelting

0

At first, I was like oh lord 😩🤦🏽‍♀️ not again… with this Cinderella story of hiding her name not telling the guy meeting up with him at school or someplace yadda yadda…. but I will say this; though she has the pen name Cinderella it’s totally different from the other book I read… I definitely wanted to smack her mom & her evil aunt just horrible … like Jesus how can someone treat a blind person so horribly…

Book Review:

Funny how they didn’t realize they knew each other…

••••There’s a couple of spoilers throughout this review•••

It’s interesting to know that this book was included in the pen pal romance series that I read. Like I wonder did she go to school with Fabio & Grace and the two from Dear Adam. In my opinion, never mind might be from another book. 😂 But anyways, I liked this book totally different.
Though; I can say, I was like ‘here we go again” with the pen pal theme with some girl acting like she’s Cinderella with the horrible stepmom and steps sisters. But thank god it was different from the other book I had read about a girl whose pen name was “Cinderella”…. this story was good but also sad; because of what happened to Cindy. But in a good way, she ended up happier when she learns to embrace her blindness and accept that she could make it on her own in the world without her dad. Often when you are close to a parent, and then they go gone, or you actually move away, it can be hard for a while until you get used to it.
I was glad she had Jet; and Raven. Not so much as Addie she was just horrible; smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ you can’t do that to someone after they told you what their ex-boyfriend and an ex-best friend did to them … I was like dang Addie wasn’t even Cindy friend to sit and lie on both her and Jett and Jett was on suspension, and Cindy got probation for the lies that Addie told, but I was glad In the end Cindy confronted Addie about what happen, and everybody learns the truth. Plus; Shay was also nicer, in the end, we’ll always be in my opinion when she learns to accept Cindy for being blind… she helped her by snitching own her mom to help Cindy.

Because Shay and Taylor mom who was Cindy aunt was just horrible she was taking Cindy trust fund money; taking trying to remodel or something to her Cindy dad house; plus opening up credit cards In Cindy name. Like sheesh, she was taking advantage of someone who couldn’t help themselves I n ways if it were for Shay or Cindy caseworker Terri I don’t think Cindy would’ve gotten what she needed when it came to her aunt… I was glad that her aunt got in trouble for fraud. But it was interesting to see other blind people helping those who are newly blind and not so newly blind. & dating someone who also blind… I never saw or read anything like that before.

Current read….. had to rush to read a different book just so I could start this one. Lol not far in it; let’s see how it goes!!!! 

Book Review:

It was good
•••Spoilers but not as many•••

That’s cute when Link said that Izzy wanted to do his hair I had to laugh at that part. Hopefully kind of sort of maybe Link would get a book too…. especially if he keeps popping up in this one…

But anyways; I really liked this book; and was glad that Talon sister Violet found herself love again with her ex-boyfriend Travis. At first, I was like who in the world is Travis when the author stated this book would be out this month. I had to go back to “Holding Out” with Talon and Zara… to figure out who Travis was 😂 I’m like ooooh he the guy that kidnapped Zara and was Violet old fling… but thank god he got rid of Pam… I didn’t even like her in Holding Out when she accused Zara of attacking her when Zara did no such thing! Plus; it’s hilarious how people kept popping up at Travis house unannounced like dang he needed better security because they surely do suck anyone can come into his house. At any time of the day… like dang!!! But at least in the end both Violet and Travis found each other, and more Violet accepted that she did still care for Travis, and her brother Talon accepted it though he doesn’t want Travis to hurt her which I understand.. & Izzy got a mother (step-mom) in the end…
P.S. I’m ready for the author to write the books about the children…. because I swear Maya and Texas might hook up… because when I was reading OutGamed, I was like hmm… it’s something there…

Book Description:

Violet Marcus’s life is settled. She has it all: a place of her own, a business where her temper has its uses, and great people who work for her. 
But something is missing. The problem is, her stubbornness refuses to admit how lonely she actually is. 
She lost the one man she thought she could marry, a university love, but when their careers drive them in different directions they went their separate ways. 
Now he’s back. 
He’s also changed. 
Unsure if she wants to hug him or throat punch him, she keeps her distance. Or tries to. 

Travis Stewart moves to Ballarat for one reason—to have Violet back in his life. His love has never diminished. Not through the years, the distance, or even in the underworld he finds himself a part of. 
He will always love her. 
Now he just has to convince Violet that his heart is hers, and his soul isn’t as black as it seems. 
His mission is simple: get Violet to understand they have a future together before getting kneed in the balls. Easy, especially as he refuses to be outplayed.

I still want the author to write about Archer brother “Bobby”… but it might not happen 😩 but anyways I really like this book; I’m definitely going to be finished before the end of this weekend or between Monday or Tuesday @authoremilygoodwin.

Book Review:

It was good

*** There are spoilers throughout***

I liked this book. Not sure this will be a long review. But we’ll see once I finish typing.
So anyways; I liked Logan and Danielle story, for one I was sad that her grandfather died I was excited that he was alive when she was in his room; but I assume 9/10 her father and I mean her mother and her grandfather maybe was arguing that lead to his heart to start and him dying but who knows. Only the author does. But I was glad Dani didn’t listen to her parents about coming back and working for her uppity parents and working at his business and doing what they want her to do…… I think living in the country, and not the city is way better. That’s where I live…. but her picking her own happiness is so much better… her sister I can tell doesn’t want that life … kind of jealous a tiny bit but not much… her parents are just horrible, but at least she has Logan parents and everyone who cares and don’t think money is everything.
Btw I can’t wait for Owen story that’s coming on June 13th….. that’s going to get me excited because I want him to be happy to and stop his whorish ways for GOOD.

P.S. But in the end, I am glad that Logan and Danielle got married for real this time; which I knew was going to happen anyways; plus with Dani ending up pregnant which I knew was going to happen also…I was just glad she picked staying over living this time…

Bea and the Bad Boy: Young Adult Sweet Romance (Love in Ocean Grove #3) by Anna Catherine Field

This one is actually better than the first one with Finley… 

Book Review:

It was good

**** There are spoilers in this review***•••
This book was good; I get why Bea was upset….. with her brother and her best friend… I think that if they would’ve told her and made her understand she wouldn’t have blown everything up… or she could’ve at least talk to her best friend about it, but she didn’t. I didn’t like how her brother treated her by saying things to her and not Katherine. I was glad she had Carter because he wasn’t like her brother who I kept thinking he wanted the spotlight more than his sister and didn’t want her to shine… but she got more shine than he did with her fake dating Carter… which was good.

That Sabrina girl was just horrible and the funny thing about it there are so many females in the real world who have lied or teen boys and men about they tried rapping or have done something to them. Which come to find out is a line. That’s why I said men think they can do things to females to hurt or harm them, but females can do way worse than a man can… I hated what happened to Carter mom I don’t understand how women can stay with a man who is abusive to them or their kids… there’s no such thing as love if you have to put yourself through something like that… but both Carter and Bea made each other better for one another., though Carter could’ve shut down all those rumors about him.

Book Description:

A strong person doesn’t seek revenge. They let karma do the dirty work.

Too bad Bea isn’t strong, or at least she doesn’t think she is, which is why she jumps when the opportunity presents itself to get back at her twin brother and former best friend the summer before her senior year.
That opportunity is six-foot-two, with the wing-span of an Olympic swimmer, the abs of a professional body builder and the strong jaw of a Greek god. Unfortunately, his name is Carter Haines and is Bea’s next-door neighbor. He’s also dangerous. Like, police show up at the door dangerous.

All of those things make Carter the right person for her plan and luckily for her he needs a girl just like Bea to accomplish a few of his own goals this summer. Primarily, keeping his job and not getting sent to boarding school.

The plan goes off too smoothly, throwing these two into each other’s orbit, where they learn the truth about one another, why their lives are a mess and what it’s like to really trust someone. 

Bea and the Bad Boy is a standalone novel from Love in Ocean Grove, series of books about swoony first time love and toe-curling kisses for readers of all ages.

Really good book 📖…. 

Book Review:

Good
****Just a few spoilers*****

I liked this book it was cute and short; I was glad that Eric picked Bri over Aryanna I don’t get why most popular guys choose the most horrible popular girls to date… when they could get any non-popular girl to date who’s ten times better than the one they had.
I had to laugh when Aryanna wanted Eric back; when she disses him for a college guy. She didn’t want him when he was stressed over her leaving him. Because she knew she had him by the strings, but soon Bri came in the picture she tried putting her claws into him.

When they (Bri and Eric) went to Aryanna party, I knew it was a set up to break Bri & Eric up… but in the end, I was glad that Bri was forgiving Eric and the Spring Fling & not only that Sam and Savanah started dating too it would’ve been cool that they got a book also.

Btw; when you meet the family you know it’s real! Plus; Eric mom liked Bri better than Aryanna right there told Eric something; Aryana wasn’t good for him whereas Bri was and vise versa.


45315964

Book Description:

Their relationship was supposed to pretend… 

Eric Emerson’s last year at Cedar Oaks High couldn’t be better — he’s one of the most popular guys in the senior class, is holding solid A’s across the board, and has a gorgeous girlfriend. It couldn’t be better, that is, until his girlfriend breaks up with him for a college guy. 

Bri Songs loves living under the radar: she’s not exactly popular, would rather teach yoga than attend the usual teenage functions, and is perfectly content with being a senior who’s never had a real kiss. She tells herself that, at least. But with her sister’s wedding right around the corner, Bri’s mom is incessantly nagging her to bring a date. 

After a chance encounter after school, Eric and Bri come up with a plan to make both their lives better — Eric will escort Bri to her sister’s wedding, and Bri will help Eric win back his ex. All they have to do is pretend to date. Win-win, right? 

But as their plan begins to work, the line between fiction and reality gets blurred. 

What happens when fake feelings suddenly turn real? 

Book 2 in the best-selling Never Ever Love series. All books in this series are short, sweet, swoon-worthy, and can be read in any order!

Good book but man Sammi was so annoying and whiny 😫… 

Book Review:

Omg Jeremiah this Jeremiah that like sheesh

Okay •••• Spoilers throughout••••

Okay! This book was good, but OMFG Sammi got on my last nerve. Like ugh; all she did was obsessed over Jeremiah but when Ryan said he liked someone else; she felt some way. I’m like she didn’t even want him so why do she care… especially when Ryan didn’t run to her on different occasions… she was ONLY thinking about JEREMIAH for peak sake like sheesh!
But she was an idiot to think that Linkie waits Linzie was her friend look at what happened with Anderson and Charlie, and how Anderson cheated on her with Linzie. Even though, Jeremiah didn’t technically cheat he still left Sammi for Linzie of all people. That girl is a jealous thot! Keep messing around with people men…
Luckily Sammi found out and finally gotten with Jeremiah because I could barely handle reading about her whining and comparing Ryan to Jeremiah…. 9/10; I figure Ryan was shy or didn’t even want her that was the reason why he acted that way towards her. It was just painful reading this book because all she did was whine, but at least she got her friendship back with Staci! Now I want Staci to find love with someone, and pray to god if she does she isn’t whiny as her best friend Samantha good god it was dreadful…

I’ve been waiting on Rey book, but Rey is kind of annoying; whereas her best friends weren’t annoying at all! This book is good though!!!! good!

Book Review:

Okay

•••• spoilers not that many•••
But I thought this book was okay; different from the other BFF series. Rey was kind of whiny and annoying… but I enjoyed her story and was glad that she got the guy she wanted “Wes” I was so ready for her to get her guy, I also knew that Hugo (I hate that name) was going to come around in the end. But what was funny he didn’t catch on to anything Wes said about if it was the other way around (if you read the book) you know that I am talking about! The only reason he figures out was because of his mom.
But in the end, everyone was happy I figure well “no” I thought she was going to go to the same college and her brother and Wes but she didn’t end up going to college she made a career out of her writing!!! In a way I was sort of like Rey writing down my thoughts and made them into poems on websites etc. & into reading but I am more into photography and art… but I am just like her in many ways.

Sophie is just smh… it’s so many women that’s like her…. & there’s women/girls who actually wants a guy like Mark… I wanted to smack her silly. Reading this book. After reading the other book with her friend Olivia… have me thinking Mark is stupid… if you read both books you see what I meant.

Book Review:

Good but Sophia one dumb chick
•••••I mention some spoilers in this review, and couldn’t help but speak my mind**•••••
Sophie is smh… it’s so many women that’s like her…. & some women/girls want a guy like Mark… I wanted to smack her silly. Reading this book. After reading the other book with her friend Olivia… have me thinking Mark is/was stupid… for even giving her another chance… because once she saw that Garrett was horrible and gotten caught a second time she felt some way. Then going to be upset when Mark started dating that girl Jenna… I didn’t blame Mark.

For one; yes he on the rebound, but Sophia gutted him; I tried saying hurt him with ed at the end but autocorrect kept saying gutted. But like I said she hurt him so bad not once; but twice more, than two times because she kept ignoring his text messages… because she assumes she wanted Garrett. What her idiot self didn’t realize was maybe Whitney was more than likely pretending and also Garrett probably only wanted to make her jealous. You could tell her (Sophia) didn’t care about what Benji her (Sophia) brother thought of him (Garrett) hitting on his sister.
But what I can agree on; is when it came to Garrett, he stated Sophia kept coming on to him and flirting which was true. I blame them both because for one she knew he was a grown ass man and he knew she was only 16 turning 17… she was underage, and he was like twenty-one… he didn’t care. Mark should’ve punched him (Garrett) too, hell right after Benji punches him (Garrett). You could tell Garrett knew what he was doing…. when it came to Benji sister… like boy bye you could’ve said NO… plus; I die of laughter when she realize Garrett kisses suck 😂😂😂 I was like she should’ve stuck with Mark the “teenager” you kept dissing for a “grown man” aka “sloppy kisser”…. It was priceless. She felt so stupid after what happened. I was like welp Livi tried to tell your butt; even wack ass Jessie…. gosh I could tell he was horrible in this book too but more so in the book with Livi… but anyways I’m off topic…
What I do want to know …. was… did Mark taken Sophia back because the one with Livi they were talking and stuff and getting all close I wanted to know more like the book one (w/Livi & Chase) did versus this one. Mark was a good guy; often more likely we all need guys like him. I be telling people (I know this is fiction) that women cheat too; what I realize both Livi and Sophia cheated on two of the guys who actually cared about them and ONLY felt stupid once they were caught. I highly doubt either of them would’ve felt bad if they didn’t get caught. But what was in my head when Garrett was kissing Sophia I kept thinking he was going to rape her or something by how he was acting while kissing her. But in the end, I was happy he left… I can’t say it was a happy ending in this book, but it was good though… I should’ve read this before the “Stand-In Boyfriend” but oh well!
