Book Review:

More like lessons learn…

*** There’s a couple of spoilers in this review; not that many but a few****

I’m glad I got around to reading this book though it took me a while. This book is pretty different, but it’s interesting to learn that these stories from this series are based on older books. That’s I never really read or want to read.

But I did like the Sonnets… & not only that I was glad that Rex friends Bronx and Reggie finally spoken up to Rex because clearly he was controlling ( more so wanted to control things) and he finally realize when Zara left for a family emergency he was an idiot to jump down her throat and was so worried about that prize that he’s dad never won. & speaking of the dad… I bet he felt some way too because Rex actually won something that he clearly didn’t win. Plus, he was the one to set it up (more so agree) to the group of three for the prize competition. But in the end, he got fool because regardless, Rex won even when he nor Zara was there. I think he would’ve been better off with his mom’s help than his dad. But his right to talk to his dad to get honest answers.

But I was glad in the end that he finally came to his senses and got his girl. & with Zara he parents just wanted her to learn to be on her own without her friends or her family being there. I understand; because it’s like you never want to go someplace or be somewhere alone. & you have actually to learn to do things on your own eventually. I was glad that she was learning too, and she and her friends Rosalie and Maria ended up with Bronx and Reggie.

Book Description:

One semester. No distractions.

Simple, right?

On the verge of winning the biggest literary prize at Shelfbrooke, Rex swears off all girls and parties, and prepares for a distraction-free semester.

It’s the perfect plan.

But when his grades aren’t good enough to participate in the contest, he ends up in tutoring with the new exchange student.

Zara’s been banished to a boring boarding school in America to work on her English.

She’s willing to do whatever it takes to get back to France as soon as possible–even if it means teaming up with the one guy who wants nothing to do with her.

But as the weeks go by and feelings grow, will he realize some things are more important than winning before time runs out?

Love Lessons is a modern retelling of the classic Shakespeare play Love’s Labour’s Lost. It’s a part of the Shelfbrooke Academy series, a collection of retellings that promise to be a lot more fun than the originals!

 

Meet Me at Half Court: All’s Fair in Love and Sports Series by Julie L. Spencer (Goodreads Author), Lisa Rector (Goodreads Author) (Editor)

This book is actually good 

Book Review:

***Not so many spoilers but there’s a couple****
This book was really good. For one, I finished this book in two days… I just started on this yesterday… & I’m now finished. I figured that Chris (Christine) was going to choose Dylan over Eddie… like get real who wants to date a guy name, Eddie. Dylan sounds hotter…
But anyway this was a good book. Though cause I liked how the girl was a tomboy and everybody liked her and called her Chris because of her skills on the court and being a tomboy! I don’t think Eddie would’ve done all of the things and know all of the things as Dylan did when it came to Christine. Because all he cared about was wanting to bang her, whereas Dylan didn’t mind kissing Christine but not taking it to far. I was like Eddie better not try raping her. & I was glad he didn’t. & I was also glad when Chris finally realize that she wanted Dylan to cover Eddie. I mean clearly, everybody, including Dylan’s mom, wanted her with Dylan. Not only that, EVERYBODY thought that Chris & Dylan were together even when Eddie was locked away in Juvie…

Book Description:

All’s fair in love and sports… until her boyfriend comes home.

Basketball was Christine’s ticket from high school to college and her dream of becoming a scientist. The cocky new kid at school was getting in her way, and into her heart.

Dylan knew his snarky new tutor was smart, gorgeous and a great basketball player. He just didn’t realize she had a boyfriend, until after he kissed her.

Now he has a choice, play fair and wait for Eddie to screw up? Or fight to win back Christine’s heart? 

The Help (Kings of Linwood Academy #1) by Callie Rose

This book actually good. Plus; she stands up to her bullies. Though I think the guys like her. & this book reminds me of CM Stinch book “The Secret Girl” but it’s also different from it…

Book Review:

Soon good; but the ending

Bruh

This book was really good! Like sheesh!

***There are a few spoilers in this review***

Omg, how good is this book; like these guys were horrible to her, and I am like they have to like her. But also broken her trust in the end. When her mom got the blame for the murder of Iris. I can’t wait to read book two because I want to know what happens next. But I have to read a couple of books first before I get to the next book. Maybe two at least..:

But ugh! It was so wrong for them to get her to trust them and then use her and don’t have her back when it came to her mom getting locked up. I cannot wait until everything comes to light about Iris’s death and among all the lies that town has… Plus, I believe Savannah was spreading a bunch of lies about Harlow. & the police are just a bad as the people. Like sheesh, and what happened on the first day of school was by far the worse, but I was glad that she didn’t back down to her bullies and made them feel weak… but those guys ugh! But enough she ended up having *** with Lincoln more than once. Like she builds that trust, I was glad that she didn’t mention to them that she was a cancer survivor. They probably would’ve used that or mistreated her for having cancer at a young age until she better; was able to live…

I definitely want to smack those guys that crap though for a lot of things like TRUST is something serious, and it’s sucks when it’s actually BROKEN. Because you learn not to trust anyone, especially those who hurt you. & 9/10 in either book two or three those guys going to try to get back in good with her, and I hope she either doesn’t forgive them or take a while to forgive them for what they did. It doesn’t matter if they didn’t want to speak up; that girl’s mother is going to jail for something she didn’t do, and the ONLY person she has is her mother, who got taken away right in front of her…


45315522. sy475

Book Description:

Rich boys don’t fraternize with the help.
They don’t torture the help.
They don’t crave the help.

For as long as I can remember, my mom and I have lived on the edge of ruin, so when she finally gets a decent job offer, she moves us cross-country to take it.

Who cares if it means working as a live-in housekeeper for a man wealthier than God? The paycheck is good, and it comes with a roof over our heads.

She even manages to get me enrolled in the fancy prep academy his son goes to—the kind that spits out future CEOs and politicians like a vending machine.

But this new town has a few things my old one didn’t…

Like secrets that could get a person killed, and four of the hottest, meanest guys I’ve ever met.

I might live in their world now, but I am not a part of it, and they’ll do whatever it takes to remind me of that.

We go to school together, live together, and share a dangerous secret, but as far as Lincoln, River, Dax, and Chase are concerned…

I’m just the help.

***AUTHOR’S NOTE: The Help is a reverse harem high school bully romance, the first book in the Kings of Linwood Academy trilogy. It contains cursing and sexual situations.

The Stand-In: my life as an understudy by Elizabeth Stevens

My current read… I’m over here like trying to beat my reading goal… I’m at 178 out of 200. I’m trying to make it to 200 before the end of the year is over… So far this book is actually good! 📖.. 

Book Review:

Stand-in to leading lady …

**** I did slap a few spoilers; into this review didn’t know I would…. but I did…. because. I had too…

I liked this book; it was a little different. But also good; I liked the fact that Eli like Chloe over her evil-Ella sister “Ella… because that girl was horrible and her (Chloe) parents were more up Ella behind rather than caring about what Chloe wanted to do and what made her happy. Chloe had her grandma and her aunt and Ella had their parents. Their parents only paid attention to Chloe when she went to the dance with her friends.

Plus; I was glad when Elijah wrote that song and the other song about her… to prove to Ella that he didn’t want her he wanted her younger sister. I felt like Chloe changed Eli for the better. Because he was a man-w****… and that wasn’t good for how old he was especially when you get up in the age… you be played out! But I was waiting on her to finally admit that she wanted to be with Elijah she didn’t really get on my nerves about Eli and her feelings. I just wanted her to stop pretending and stop following and doing everything her sister wanted her to do. I was glad; when she finally became who she wanted and didn’t want to be the shadow of her sister the “stand-in” she finally came out of her shell… and became Chloe Cowan and not Ella Cowan the person who treated her like crap and everyone thought she was from a distance…

I liked how everyone half of the people anyways figures out that Chloe was the nicer sister, and Ella was the evil sister. I had to laugh at the end when Eli sang that song for Chloe in front of everyone including her sister and then in the auditorium when Ella told her not to kiss Eli, and she (Chloe) did… I was like about time girl you don’t care about what your sister thinks, and she kissed him too…. & finally got the guy & wasn’t a stand-in you look at it Chloe was actually the leading lady, she just didn’t see it for herself and didn’t see she was beautiful and guys and others liked her whereas her sister was just a horrible person. That half of year twelve which I believe in American is twelfth grade knew Ella was evil…

Forever Yours (Ridgewater High #6) by Judy Corry

Current read 📖….. 

Book Review:

Pretty good read…

*** There are spoilers here and there****

I had to go down memory land to figure out where Jace and Logan came from I don’t know why I thought they were from a Christmas book. But I did realize that Logan was from the book with Raven… because they did that Christmas event together and she didn’t like him like that she was more into Jace rather than Logan…. when it came to Olivia I’m like ahhh more details into what happened with Jace point of view. Rather than Raven and Logan point of view because Raven did thought it was Logan for a chance. But finding out that Jace had lipstick on his lips when he went to talk to Alyssa was crazy…

I mean, I wanted her to forgive him because he did like her, but how could he think that she would’ve forgiven him when he had Olivia lipstick on his lips. But it’s a good thing that her best friend Raven help Jace get Alyssa back with also the help of his twin brother and they doing the switch-a-roo thing again. But they did have her for a minute or two because she clearly thought she was talking and dancing with Logan until she figured out that it was Jace.

Not only that it’s a good thing that she forgave Jace because he clearly wasn’t like Trey who cheated on Alyssa and didn’t even care about her feelings only cared about winning a bet.. plus I knew he probably remembered a lot of things especially when he was talking to Alyssa than Jace… I’m like hmm this boy more likely remembered everything that happened. Plus I thought it was karma that goes him, but clearly, he didn’t learn anything after the accident because he was clearly the same person he always been especially when he had all those ex-girlfriends after Kaela…

Btw: I want a story with their friend Rachel and maybe the guy Ky Miller because that’ll be an interesting story because she clearly hates the guy…

Book Description:

Her crush is back. Too bad she’s dating his best friend.

For Alyssa, Friday nights are all the same. She cheers at whatever sporting event is in season, then goes to a party with her boyfriend, Trey, and tries to keep him from getting too drunk. So when her childhood crush, Jace Carmichael, shows up one night, she’s not sure what to do with the feelings that come flooding back.

When Jace moves back to Ridgewater, he only has two goals: fit in with his old friends and make sure Trey never finds out that he kissed Alyssa the night before he moved away. But when he discovers that Trey might be cheating on Alyssa, he wonders if those goals are worth having anymore.

Soon, Jace confronts his friend and accidentally lets his true feelings slip. To his surprise, Trey challenges him with a bet. One week to charm Alyssa and if he succeeds, Trey will step aside. Making a bet is crazy, but Jace is desperate for a chance at Alyssa’s heart. As long as she doesn’t find out, it will be worth it, right?

Book Review:

Awesome read

 

***¥•• I splash a bunch of spoilers throughout this review•••*^^^^¥¥

 

This book was awesome. I didn’t know I was 63% done until I had looked. I was like WOW I’m halfway finished with this book and didn’t realize I was. It’s different when you read books with longer words writing in one chapter. “I think that’s the says” lol!

But anyway, it’s interesting to know that Destiny found out about that BET well more so Eli taking money from Jack the wack job! Towards the ending of the book. Because I was like when is she going to learn what happened and why Jack and Eli be sneak talking! But clearly Destiny couldn’t see the LIGHT until Eli came in the picture because without Eli; 9 out of 10 she would’ve been with Jack. If he didn’t break up with her first; or that girl that Jack was dating didn’t come forward and snitch on him about his cheating!

Lord knows I was HAPPY when she broke it off with Jack; especially when learning, he was with another girl when she called to break up with him. Plus when she found out about Eli and the money; and him helping Jack get rid of her. I was like she better forgives Eli because Jessica (her cousin) forgave her for taking/cheating with her ex-boyfriend Jack. Who by the way was a piece of crap even Jessica in her book; told Destiny, Jack wasn’t any good.. at least Destiny met Eli through Jessica and ended up actually happy.

I do hope that Eli ended up getting his dog back, but the author never mentioned anything else about his dog or them getting a house or apartment that accepts animals. But I am so ready to read the book with Cole and Amanda.. because she’s so clueless about Cole feelings; though she has feelings for him on the DL.

Book Description:

He was hot. And charming. And a total fake.

Destiny couldn’t help but like Eli. He was cute and always knew what to say to make her pulse race. But she was dating Jack so she kept her distance. Too bad Jack was treating her like a jerk.

When she finally decided to dump the jerk so she could go out with Eli, she overhears Eli talking on the phone and finds out the truth. Eli was not actually into her. He was being paid to flirt with her.

Destiny swears she will never speak to Eli again. But he won’t stop. Her heart is torn. Can she trust the impostor? 

The Ruthless Boys (Adamson All-Boys Academy #2) by C.M. Stunich

Reading book one ending had me halfway crying but reading this book so far got me happy because of what I thought at the end of book 1… let’s hope no one I like here killed in this one.

Book Review:

Ruthless boys

*** There’s spoilers; but not many*****

Bruh that ending is so annoying stay leaving cliffhangers every time. Then I hate where there are no preorders for the next book…

Plus I figured something might have been up with Church. I mean clearly; he was kind of psycho… but who even knows, because he may be doing self-defense and was trying to save himself or Charlotte. I’ll find that out in book three whenever it comes out. 

I also don’t like her dad… because he fulls dog poop. Because for one he was acting weird as heck when it comes to his daughter and the murders that are going on. Not only that I think the Church may know more than he let on so who knows until we get to book three. 

Clearly, she’s now dating four of the guy’s mines Church, but I am hoping she’ll end up with Spencer as her full-blown boyfriend ONLY. Knowing her, she may end up with all 5 of them or just four… 

I can’t wait to find out what really going to happen next in book three. & what will they (Ranger, Twins & Spencer along with Charlotte) find out! 

I also think the people at the place Charlotte at more likely going to find out she’s a girl too, especially when she wet. But I want to know who was chasing her was it the killer or Church weird self!

Book Description:

Psst, I know a secret. 

The same secret that the Student Council—the super-rich, super handsome elite of Adamson All-Boys Academy—knows, too. 

Jenica Woodruff, the only girl to ever attend the academy before I showed up, didn’t commit suicide: she was murdered. 

Now, someone is after me, too, but no matter where I go, the killer follows. My new high school isn’t safe, and turns out, neither is my old one. 

I’m not a member of the Student Council, but after everything we’ve been through together, after the horrible things we’ve seen, I may as well be. These ruthless boys have taken me under their wing. 

Church, the fearless leader (and hopeless coffee addict). Ranger, the bada** VP (and naked baker). The identical McCarthy twins (and MMA enthusiasts). And Spencer, the boy who was willing to question everything about himself to fall for me … oh, Spencer. 

Murder and romance are both in the air at Adamson; I’m just not sure which one will kill me first.

The Garden (Shelfbrooke Academy #4) by Amy Sparling, Shelfbrooke Academy

This book is actually good. I’ve been flying through these books. & this is one of them .. I’m 61% done…

Book Review:

The gardens • 🌿🌼🍁🍂

****Throwing spoilers throughout this review ****

This book was really good. It took me maybe three days; maybe two to finish it… it’s like the book twelfth Knight (meaning; I finish it really fast) but anyways. I was glad that Declan came to his senses and realized that he shouldn’t hide from Sophia, knowing that he actually liked her. Also; with her speaking up for herself when it came to her parents was also good. Being a trust fund kid; can have its perks and also be hard, especially if your parents are controlling your every move.

But with Sophia moving to New England; and going to boarding school actually helped her to become a better person. Not only that she realize those friends of hers in Malibu wasn’t really a real friend as Declan and Belle were to her. Because clearly everybody didn’t reach out to her once she left… Plus; those students in her school was wack though since neither of them wanted to get to know her; because of a creep like Chad who in the end ended up getting into trouble with selling pills…

Not only that she also helped her cousin with her anxiety if it wasn’t for Sophia, but I also don’t think Belle would’ve left her room the way she did when Sophia mentions the gardens. The gardens actually helped both Sophia and her cousin Bella and also good that she thought college was an option for her, especially since she didn’t care for it when she was in Malibu.

I did like how Sophia got Declan family their garden back by talking to her parents and using her trust fund is a good way to help her boyfriend. But at least her mom said she’ll get it back eventually. But I doubt Sophia cared lol.

Book Description:

Sophia Brass has it all—money, freedom, and a total life of luxury. When Sophia’s parents go abroad, she’s sent to the prestigious boarding school of Shelfbrooke Academy. Here she shares a dorm with her estranged cousin, Belle, whose extreme social anxiety hasn’t let her leave the room in three years. Thanks to her reputation as a stuck-up brat, Sophia isn’t really friends with anyone. Especially not Declan Moss, the popular senior who is too smart, too cute, and too annoying for his own good. 

The boarding school’s gardens become her refuge where she can do her school work in solace, away from the mocking and unfriendly students. One day she finds a hidden door in the gardens that she’s positive leads somewhere special. Somewhere she could truly hide out from everything. Maybe it could even get her cousin to finally leave her room. 

This hidden garden could fix everything. Only the door is locked. 

And she’s pretty sure the key belongs to Declan. 

The Garden is a modern retelling of the classic novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It’s a part of the Shelfbrooke Academy series, a collection of retellings that promise to be a lot more fun than the originals! 

Sway (Shelfbrooke Academy #3) by M.F. Lorson, & Shelfbrooke Academy

When I first started this book awhile back. I was like this book is wack “boring”. But I went back and re-read it from where I left off… I’m on chapter 10… & so far it’s actually pretty good…

Book Review:

It was good 

*****SPOILERS; JUST A LITTLE BIT***** 

I liked this book pretty good read. It had me interested once I went back to re-reading, where I left off. Because at first, I thought this book; it was boring by how it started off until I got back into it… since I wanted to read this whole story…

But I am thinking I know Will from one of those books it could be from Tessa, but I am not sure… because I know her (Tessa), and Angelo had a problem with a rich prick… but anyways I didn’t like how Christopher was playing games; when it came to Anne I think he only wanted to date Lydia to make Anne jealous when in reality he didn’t even care for her as he did with Anne.. he kept being mean to her and not saying things to her.. but always get mad when it came to something about Will or another guy. Like Anne couldn’t catch a break…. like everything she did didn’t work…

I think he was kind of stupid too when he said that Anne changed. I am like come on now a lot of people change in the three years you’ve haven’t known them.. he even changed himself… but I felt like if he were that butt hurt by her it wouldn’t have talked about her to everybody that he knew & not only that he would’ve written her back too., I mean clearly, Anne was stupid for listening to Rachel smh when it came to breaking up with her public school boyfriend. I was like really if you like someone you could always make it work. 

But at least in the end “after they all got into trouble,” Christopher actually realize he shouldn’t run from his feelings for Anne and actually realiZe how she felt about him… I think he needed to hear what she told their Dean of the school because he was tripping throughout the book.

The more time she spends around Christopher, the clearer it becomes that the two belong together. Too bad Christopher wants nothing to do with the girl who broke his heart with little explanation and no apology.

Read My Heart (Rumor Has It #5.5) by R.H. Tucker

As I look at this title I keep thinking of “read it and weep” while also was like how my username change to Sadie. 🤣…. but anyways; when I read a book that’s good I’m known to be finished in like two days. Well, clearly I finished the last book I posted on here… & now on chapter two of this book “Read My Heart” 📖♥️ by @rhtuckerauthor… I am happy that she wrote a book about Jackson and Cindy because I’ve mentioned it in the book with his best friend Lucas… but anyways… I’m hoping for something positive when it comes to Jackson since been playing games. I’m hoping he embraces disability. ✊🏼 

Book Review:

Read my heart 

****Throwing spoilers throughout this review**** this was awesome read!!!

I so waiting on a book with Jackson and Cindy… I believe I mentioned it in the book with his best friend, Lucas… Because I also was hoping that Veronica and Micah get together.

But speaking of Veronica and Micah… I understood why Micah didn’t want to tell her what that dust-bag “Joe” said about her… with a name like that he seems like a horrible person even got an OLDER MAN name, unlike the others. Though I know people with the names Joe though their name is Joseph… 

But still, Joe was a horrible dude… it’s crazy how he pretends to be this good guy; but in the end, was actually horrible. I think Cindy was just trying to block out her feeling for Jackson that why she kept going on those stupid dates “that she didn’t even like; want to be on” … when she knew he was more into Jackson…

Plus; she stayed cursing him out when she really didn’t know what she says to him has to heart him. Often you say things to hurt people that’s what she did because she felt like he hurt her too. I did believe he was playing games with her emotions/feelings and things….. just because he didn’t want to admit that he’s Dyslexic… I mean it can often be hard at times telling someone you date that you have a specific type of disability, especially when you seem like a normal person…

I did like how he started going to those classes and then sign up again for the next semester. I was hoping that he ended up in the community college after he did take those classes that actually was helpful to him… I did want to smack Joe because he acted like those classes at the community college was a waste. When most of the students there spent a lot of time in classes to become what they want to become. The half time people do community college then goes to a university to take up either associate than a bachelor than go into the big lead to graduate school!

I just hope his dad learn what a user Joe is…

Not only that…..

Listen…… I HOPE THE AUTHOR DOES WRITE A BOOK ABOUT ALEX LIKE I AM KIND OF CURIOUS ABOUT HIM AND WHERE HE FITS INTO THIS PICTURE SINCE HALF THE OTHERS PEOPLE FROM THE OTHER BOOKS TO This series hasn’t popped up…..

PS I am curious and hopefully get a book with this series that talks about two polar opposites…

Book Description:

Jackson’s got a secret. And no matter what his parents or his best friend tells him, he’s keeping it. He knows what it feels like to be rejected, so he’ll keep his secret to himself, even if it means pushing away someone he could be falling for.

Cindy might look like she has it all, but no one knows that what matters to her most is shattered and gone. She’s put up a façade, hiding her family drama from everyone because blocking it out is easier than dealing with the pain. Which is why she has no time for Jackson and his games.

Deciding their on-again, off-again relationship is done for good this time, why can’t either of them say goodbye? And will it all fall apart again if they can’t finally face the secrets plaguing both of them?
