If I Were a Rich Girl by Sherri Renee

She finna get caught soon enough by other people in that school too. A person can hold on a lie for so long….. 

Book Review:

Pretty good!!!!

*** There’s a few spoilers in this review**

Sooo, okay, this book was good. I would’ve finished this book yesterday, but I had other important things to do. I am glad I finally finished because after a while I get tired lol. But the book was good; I didn’t know if I’ll finish it until I started!

I wouldn’t say I liked the fact that Rinidi had to pretend to be someone else for her to make friends. I think if she would’ve been herself from the beginning, she would’ve still had friends. She probably would’ve gotten Tyler or maybe even had a crush on him…. though; he probably wouldn’t have talked to her.

But I do understand that she had to do what she had to do. With trying to fit in because she felt like she would’ve been BULLIED for being a charity case (poor girl) if she didn’t lie about how she was rich and the granddaughter of Andrea’s mom….

I was also glad; that Megan got the stick from up her behind because, for one, she was jealous of Rinidi and was stupid for sitting and starving herself to please Lizzie even Rinidi kind of did that too by not eating what she wanted.

No way could I do that….. but at least they all came around to be here still (Rindi) friend even after the lies she told had come out in the open. She also changes Cooper too; from being a womanizer and Megan finally got the guy and she sort of change Megan for the better, even Lizzie…

Book Description:

Rindi always felt invisible at her other schools. Her family moves so much she’s never had a chance to fit in. Now, half-way through her senior year, she’s starting an elite school where she would normally fit in least of all, but one little lie propels her to the top of the social hierarchy.

Suddenly, she has it all. Friends, parties, boyfriends. Thanks to her teeny, tiny lie, she’s living the life of a rich girl. So, why is she so unhappy?

When the truth finally comes out, her fictional world crashes down around her. Will any of her new friends be there to pick up the pieces, or will she become something even worse than invisible?

Basketballs and Mistletoe: All’s Fair in Love and Sports Series by Julie L. Spencer

This a good book. It definitely got me laughing! Lol! 

Book Review:

Well, the name of the book fits for this story…

***Not many spoilers but there may be some***

This book was pretty interesting, though; towards the end, I realize I read this book out of order. Even though it can be read probably In any order. At least I got the order correct in the next three books to this series lol.

Other than that… it’s crazy how she (Trina) didn’t make the team. Then Matt hurt his ankle (sprang/broke), and couldn’t play. I think it was meant for them to be together since he had a thing for him. & vise versa…. as I was reading this book though; I was like why is this girl complaining about herself being fat when 9 out of 10 she’s probably not fat….it was annoying…

But learning that she had an eating disorder. I am like ahh I see now because that can be a series probably no matter your size you can have one. I don’t think she was skinny, though, and she has an eating disorder. I remember learning that two sisters had an eating disorder. I said to myself it’s good that she has Matt and her friends there for her to push for and let him (Matt) know it’s not him; it’s her.

Not only that, she did a good job with her friend Ariane with shipping equipment overseas to Africa because they didn’t have enough… getting the community and schools among other places together to help was an excellent idea. I think a lot of kids need to learn to do that while in school. I know for a fact the schools where I live wouldn’t.

But I liked Trina’s idea and was glad Matt was on board with her. Besides that, I was dying when those false allegations about them doing the Mcnasty and the kiss and her being pregnant. I was like those kids can spread rumors like wildfire, and Matt and Trina didn’t help themselves any. 🤣🤣 He even had the doctor on his case when he went to the ER.

Kissing the Enemy: A Sweet YA Boarding School Christmas Romance (Kiss Academy Book 3) by Julia Keanini

The second book that I am reading this year. “Kissing the Enemy”… 

Book Review:

He wasn’t her enemy.

***Not that many spoilers; just a few***

Before I even get started on reading, wait for no lol! Before I even get started on this review, I am going to mention something about Dakota…

I’ve wanted a book with Dakota and Alana.. okay, I got it with Alana. Now I am waiting for the author to write this book about Dakota and some mystery guy. I do wonder if it’s one of Nash’s friends. Who knows… I am going to be checking none stop for that next book too lol.

But anyway, back to Alana story… I liked that Beckett wasn’t taking no for an answer when it came to his feelings for Alana. He proved her wrong when it came to her family, not liking him (well more so her Abuela)…

He proved a lot to her by coming to Europe and transferring to Kiss… that is what I liked. A lot of people need guys like that… but she was annoying in Europe though; because she was a downer just because he wasn’t there with her. I think her friends dealt with their boyfriends, not being there with them all the time…

Book Description:

He’s the enemy. But what if I kiss him?

The last thing I expect when I’m home from Kiss Academy for winter break is gorgeous, charming, funny Beckett Clark: the guy I crushed on hard in middle school. But I’m a few years beyond that now–star goalie at one of the best schools in the world and friends with literal movie stars. Yet somehow, when I see those gray eyes again and he asks me on a date, I fall hard.

Which in and of itself is stupid since he lives in South Carolina and I go to school in California. But the distance isn’t the hurdle I’m worried about. Because, you see, Beckett Clark is the enemy. And nothing short of a Christmas miracle can change that.

Kissing the Enemy is a stand-alone romance and the third book in the Sweet and Wholesome YA series, Kiss Academy

The Revenge Kiss: A Sweet YA Boarding School Romance (Kiss Academy Book 2) by Julia Keanini

I’m 32% done with “The Revenge Kiss”💋… I was kind of hesitant about reading this book 📖… I assumed that it might be boring! Though I’ve read another series by this author. I just didn’t know until I started it today. & so far it’s good! 

Book Review:

It was a good story, with a good revengeful kiss.

So I am not sure if there will be a lot of spoilers in this review, but if so, beware…

Okay, so I was waiting to read this book. And not once was disappointed. I figured when I was reading Marley and Nash’s story that London and Jet had a thing for each other. For how much they bicker towards each other.

I also want a book with her sister Dakota. Since Alana, have her book. I am going to start real soon. Besides that, I am going to continue to tell my thoughts on this book. Though, this one will be short.

So anyways, Collin thought he was going to hurt London in reality, he didn’t. What he got was dissed towards the end when they were at Jet’s national championship basketball game. He tried asking London on a date… he wasn’t a real man and didn’t even care about London the way that Jet cared for her. She finally saw that he had a feeling for her after they are broken up during prom, & vise versa…

I was glad; at the end that they figured things out and started dating foreal instead of fake dating. Plus, London finally told her mother what she wanted, which was a good thing for her.

Book Description:

Kiss the guy who hates me to get back at the guy who played me. Who thought this was a good idea?

Jet Stockton doesn’t date girls like me. He thinks I’m stuck-up, rich, and just like his ex who ended up ruining his family. So what does a smart girl like me do when a guy hates her? Crush on him. Ridiculous, right?

However, when Jet offers to kiss me so that I don’t look pathetic when my new boyfriend, Collin, shows up at a party with his latest costar what can I say? I kiss him and the kiss rocks my world. Too bad it’s only for revenge.

But then Collin shows up at my school and I have to pretend that Jet is my boyfriend or our revenge kiss would have been for nothing. So I do.

And just when I think I’m done with my stupid decisions, I fall into the most foolish of them all. I’m for real in love with Jet, my fake boyfriend. But he’s just faking feeling the same about me, right?

The Kissing Game: A Sweet YA Boarding School Romance (Kiss Academy Book 1) by Julia Keanini

I was kind of hesitant about reading this book 📖… I assumed that it might be boring! Though I’ve read another series by this author. I just didn’t know until I started it today. & so far it’s good! 

Book Review:

I still can’t believe that the academy is called “Kiss.”

**There’s a possibility that there might be a lot or fewer spoilers in this review***

Okay! So before I start, I want to say I wasn’t sure about this book. Because of what it was named and on top of that, no… let me backtrack, I wasn’t sure about this book because of the description of the book. I was like, I don’t know if I am going to like this book.

But once I started, it turns out to be a pretty good book. I was glad that I got around actually to read it. I liked Nashville and Marley’s story though both their names are horrible. I liked their story. Especially when Nashville twin? Triplet, or is it just his sister. I know it mentioned something about twins and the other half … but back to what I was saying. Especially when his sister London knew that Marley had a thing for her brother and asked him if he liked Marley when they all were at the diner… but I kind of figure that that Jet had a thing for Marley and London had a thing for him. Still, she was trying to deny her feelings for him. Due to the fact that he liked Marley…

But what she doesn’t know is that they will be together real soon. Lol 😂… but anyways; I thought Marley mom did need to get put in her place I mean she couldn’t base her life on her daughter life because Marley could meet someone who was and is different from her dad (Nashville) and don’t get pregnant young and run her career to become a professional soccer player… I was glad that her mom realizes that in the end, when Nashville followed them from California… he was even going to leave Kiss Academy so that Marley could come back. If that wasn’t love, I don’t know what is…

Plus that Natalia girl was just horrible. I was glad that Dakota got rid of her as her friend because Dakota was to nice to have someone evil as a friend. Especially when Natalia lied about her arm being hurt with a water bottle😂 like she was doing too much. But in the end, she still looked like a jealous fool because getting Marley off the team didn’t work on it lead her to Nashville, the one guy that Natalia wanted… she (Natalia) played herself, and Marley won because she got the guy…..

Book Description:

It’s the game that can change everything. 

Every noteworthy couple at Kiss Academy has started in the same place, in the same way. The Kissing Game. And although I’d like to say the idea of doing the same thing as everyone else is too cliche…I can’t. 

But it isn’t like I want just any boy to be waiting on that X, looking around the crowd to meet my eyes at the sound of the courtyard clock chiming. I only want Nashville Wilde. 

Too bad the rest of the female population at Kiss feels the same way. Not only is Nash loved by all, he’s a freaking movie star and totally out of my league. And to top it all off? He’s my best friend’s brother. Talk about doomed. And yet like a fool…I dream. 

But then junior year rolls around and the rules of the game seem to change. We become friends and…could Nash be interested in me? Will we meet at the illustrious X? Or is it all my foolish imagination? 

The Kissing Game  is a stand-alone romance and the first book in the Sweet and Wholesome YA series, Kiss Academy.

“This was my first time reading Julia Keanini, but it won’t be the last. I adored The Kissing Game! With such great characters and an interesting take on the boarding school trope, I was hooked from page one. Can’t wait to start book 2!”  Kelly Oram, Author of Girl at Heart and Cinder & Ella 

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

One of my favorite authors… read mostly all of her books. 📚 I can’t wait to read this one… @kasiewest @epicreads

Book Review:

*** There are some spoilers in this review****

I’m never disappointed when I am reading Kasie West books. It never takes me long to read her books. I love this story; I knew someone was targeting Lacey; I never thought it was Aaron. I thought it was Faith the whole time; the author fool me…. but at least she got her career on top and got a connection with her main castmates; plus a relationship with Donovan. I can’t say too much about this book, but it was really good; I started on it yesterday and finished it today — definitely a 5-star book.

Book Description:

Fan favorite author Kasie West delivers an effervescent story about chasing your dreams and following your heart, perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Huntley Fitzpatrick. 

Lacey Barnes has dreamed of being an actress for as long as she can remember. So when she gets the opportunity to star in a movie alongside one of Hollywood’s hottest actors, she doesn’t hesitate to accept the part.

But Lacey quickly learns that life in the spotlight isn’t as picture perfect as she imagined. She’s having trouble bonding with her costars, her father has hired the definition of a choir boy, Donavan Lake, to tutor her, and somewhere along the way she’s lost her acting mojo. And just when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse, it looks like someone on set is deliberately trying to sabotage her.

As Lacey’s world spins out of control, it feels like the only person she can count on—whether it’s helping her try to unravel the mystery of who is out to get her or snap her out of her acting funk—is Donavan. But what she doesn’t count on is this straight-laced boy becoming another distraction.

With her entire future riding on this movie, Lacey knows she can’t afford to get sidetracked by a crush. But for the first time in her life Lacey wonders if it’s true that the best stories really do happen when you go off script. 

The Nobody and the Popular Guy (The Sunday Lunchers #6) by Julia Keanini

Almost finish the last book to the “Sunday lunchers” … I’m still lost to why “Sara” well by a book was written about Sara… I thought I had seen her name in at least two or three books to this series… during the girls counseling sessions… but I can’t place her…

Book Review: 

 I liked this book it was; different than the others 

****There’s definitely spoilers throughout this review:*****

<i>Omg, I’m here like Mr. Brandon, why they are talking about the counselor from books 1-5 in this series. Come to find out Blake is the actual guy who spoke to those girls (Lacey, Jamie, Audrey, Tina & Anna) through their eating disorders. Because In one of the books it mentions how he had the same problem in school and comes to find out he was the dang counselor.</i> <u>I was here ‘lost’ wondering who’s “Sara” was and why a book was written about her… I thought I had seen her name in at least two or three books to this series… during the girls counseling sessions. But I can’t place her.. but then my brain is telling me in one of these books her name is mentioned when Mr. Brandon talked about his wife. </u>
That is crazy; I liked Mr. Brandon in book 1-5, and dislike like him 2.5 seconds when he let dust bunny Britney and her friends bully Sara! I think he could’ve to help Sara! If he actually did care for her. The way he went about it hurt Sara so bad especially all those evil things they did to her. I couldn’t blame Sara for not wanting to talk to him and not deal with him. Run away when he comes around. I too think why are you here, trying to ruin my life again. But I cannot wait until he apologizes and explains to Sara why he did what he did when they were in high school together.

I’m still mad about that set up that was the plan. But I was wondering how they played that setup so well when (well, how they know Sara was going to the bathroom at the particular time)… plus Darla and Jared were both a piece of crap too. I definitely wanted to smack them both with Britney…

I like how Blake finally gave Sara an explanation of why he couldn’t tell her or diss her “treated her like crap” as he said., I knew Britney was EVIL but evil enough to put Blake eating disorders out was pure evil if that was the case behind him treating Sara the way he did. I still said he was DEAD wrong!

But glad in the end, she knew that she should’ve forgiven him a LONG time ago; especially behind the reason, he did what he did. I also, knew that it wasn’t planned for Sara to find Blake passed out! Ha, Britney saw Blake changed because of Sara; what a hater. Glad, that Sara got Blake in the end. #truefacts

The Broken Girl and the Hero (The Sunday Lunchers #5) by Julia Keanini

Just finished book 5? Of the Sunday lunchers. This is the one book I really wanted to read from this series… 51600622_1912433768882851_4391811528555233280_o

Book Review: 

Good book; wasn’t disappointed.. 5 star. ⭐️

***• I’m just going to add the spoilers here•*****

So I have wanted to read this book for a while now because I wanted to know Audrey story. I am glad that I got to read her story. Which was so different from the other four girls… like I think this book was a book five idk but anyways!

It sucks that her friend Molly didn’t believe anything that “Katie” at the time said about her dad. But what it was Molly is just like her father and wanted to get in denial … I was glad that Audrey got out of her shale and became stronger than she truly was.

All it took was for Brent to come into her life again and give her that spark that she needed. I was also glad that she put Chris in his place. Because he almost ruin things for Brent, but Brent became a police officer, and Dylan became an investor… so I figure football wasn’t their calling. Not only that I was glad that In the end Dylan and Jenna finally got together. Because they wanted each other as much as Brent and Audrey each other.

I was glad that Audrey became stronger when her abuser (her ex-best friend father) came into her new home and tried to hurt her. In the end, I was glad she used her business degree to open up well more so to help those women who are a victim of abusive relationships, family members; ransoms, etc. I like stuff like that especially for women because it gives us women to protect ourselves from the evil of the world. That’s something I always wanted to do (boxing; martial arts, work out exercises) never know when you might need to kick somebody butt.

& I was glad that Audrey kicks Gary *** in the end. She needed to be happy; I also understood why she didn’t want to be called by Katie-Lynn, especially when he called her that name. Audrey was a way better name for her. I can’t stand men who prey on children yuck!!! For her friend to blame her at the age of thirteen saying she wanted to be raped by that man is just disgusting… I wanted to slap her ex-best friend, Molly.
