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!

But, when her brother’s gorgeous friend moves in with them while he completes a summer internship, her goal changes. Suddenly the only thing she wants this summer is him. 

She wants him even more when her brother warns her off him, and even more than that when Livy tells her it’s a bad idea. Then when he starts dating one of her brother’s friends? Well, that makes him irresistible. 

Because that’s the thing about Sophie—she’s always wanted what she can’t have.

Book Review:

Fake boyfriend = real boyfriend

•••Spoilers throughout this review••••
Lord the girl Livi aka Olivia I wanted to smack her so many times it wasn’t even funny. Like omg; her obsession with her best friend was over the top and ridiculous like Jheeze… All you see was Jessie this Jessie that. Jessie; Jessie, Jessssiee a thousand times like good lord. & I knew in my mind that Chase liked Olivia that’s why he did the fake boyfriend thing with her because he knew that was the only option he had to get to her… which I can agree on because lord Livi was in LOVE with Jessie so hard! Every single thing blinded her… plus; she was dumb a lot of times especially when Jessie was using her and taking advantage of her and being disrespectful to her and especially when Charlotte wait that isn’t her name I think it was Courtney if not whatever I didn’t like her anyway.
But anywho; Jessie was just a horrible person, but when Chase got loud with her she was butt *** hurt when he mentions her father … I was like this girl here…smh then felt some type of way when she gotten caught by Chase when she was kissing Jessie not once did she ever tell him Jessie kissed her at the game! But in my mind, I think Chase seen that part because he tends to watch her a lot! I wanted her peanut brain to realize that Chase was never pretending, but it never happens until Chase didn’t want to deal with her dumb self anymore. I was like lord girl…… & when Chase told her that he was faking boy she was but hurt I was like oh well you freaking idiot…. you wanted Jessie; Jessie Jessie way you mad for… like Gosh! She was annoying! Chase was way better, and he was someone that Jessie was not! Plus Chase knew how horrible Jessie treated her. Not only that I figure out he didn’t like him due to the fact of how he treated Olivia… Chase definitely didn’t like Jessie… but Jessie started hating Chase once Livi wasn’t there for his beck and call. I still said that’s why he so butted her; but when someone else came in the picture that when Jessie dumb self-thought he could go in and take Olivia way. I still said that he set that kissing in his bedroom up so that Chase can find out. Plus; in the end, I’m glad that Chase and Livi kissed and made up and that Abigail apologizes to both Livi and her friend Hallie…

I thought this book was going to be wack but it actually wasn’t.

Book Review:

Pen Pal use to be a thing; that I still think is great.

*Spoilers throughout this review;***••••
I can’t get over Emerick niece no cousin reading that romance book with the shirtless dude on the front; and she’s only ten … I don’t know why I find it hilarious. But gah 😂😂😂 it reminds me of my niece trying to read books she knows she shouldn’t be reading; lol!

I died laughing when Emerick said “I glanced back at Janie, her nose already buried in some book with a shirtless man on the cover. She was only ten. What the hell did she want to do with a book like that?” 😂😂 I was thinking the same thing like what the what… her mom even knew she was reading it too. I’m dead weak!
Plus; I was glad when Nora got rid of Trey; he was just horrible. I was also glad he stopped coming around and both her parents realize how awful he was. Did that terrible thing to her over a breakup that to me I felt like he only did it for “it couple” like he stated. Like ugh; Emerick aka Adam was so right for Nora as she was to him. I still felt like she could’ve apologized for what she said about him only knowing how to fix cars etc. you can never judge a book by its cover. Because the ones you think are beneath you are way better than those who are just like you. I was just glad that Nora realizes that and Emerick realize that Nora was a snob etc…. Emerick deserves that certificate he, and I like how he also helped his friend Wolf realize he could do better for himself. I didn’t realize this book was going to be good; just by looking at the cover… but this book was grade A 5-star book. I like it; I liked that no one judge him well they did because they assume he was a black kid… but what I did like was at least her family accepted him even though he was a black boy and she was a white girl. Because often parents don’t accept two different races being together.

Interesting enough book! Basketball 🏀 good!

Book Review:

Varsity Girlfriends #Book1

••••Not that many spoilers but there are some•***

So okay, I understand when you have rivals, it was the same way with my old school Brunswick vs. Greensville… but her (Charlie) brother Preston took it too far; I don’t even think that Jackson also cares too much about that rivalry at all. Plus; it only got too serious once evil pinhead Anderson did what he did to Charlie which was horrible. I wanted someone to literally beat Anderson up for what he did to Charlie not once but three times. What crazy was Preston was so stuck on the rivalry with Jackson that he didn’t even go after his sister. I was glad when she told both Jackson and Preston off during that game that they both ruin for themselves. Because it was ridiculous, but in the end, I was glad that her best friend Daria was there for her because everybody else including her brother was horrible to that girl. It was so much girl could take, but only people did was laugh at her and stuff that was bullying her… but glad in the end, I was glad her and Preston back talking, and she and Jackson got back together.

Good girls always go for the bad boys. Well, some don’t…

Book Review:

#GoodGirlBadBoy

***Spoilers here and there****
This book was good wasn’t irritated or anything. I liked Harper and Emerson story. I figured he was going to come around sooner or later. I think when you have family or grown into a family that gets into trouble or have been locked up often the kids follow their parent’s footsteps; then the younger siblings follow the siblings… I believe if it wasn’t for Harper Emerson wouldn’t have become a better person. Also; Mr. Roberts made him a better person too (well more so with that letter) before he died. Harper friends were telling her how Emerson was, but they also realize that both Harper and Emerson cared for one another, so they were there for her regardless of Emerson being there and him walking away that’s what you call true friends…. but in the end, I’m glad that Emerson went and got his girl. ❤️

Book Review:

#HateThatBoy = to love ❤️

*** Spoilers? Umm just a few!!!!****
Okay, so I enjoyed this book as well as I did the first book. Like this first book; I also read this one in two days. I love books where it doesn’t take me a long time to read it because that’s how good it be and your attention stays on the book page after page.

I know one thing; I was glad Tori didn’t care what others think of her and Noah though she didn’t want anyone to find out about them because of nationals. But in reality, people already figured it out. Not much you can hide from friends etc. plus; Gary was hating on Noah because Noah was more of a man and better person than he was to Tori…

Not only that her mom was a horrible person towards both her daughters I was glad when Tori kept telling her mom off and telling her how she felt. Because in the end, her mom realizes she was wrong and gotten help for it, and she also apologizes to her children and their father going to be home more. I always say no matter how much money someone has their family home isn’t always greater than the person who has less. But if you look at it, Noah and Tori were one and the same because both their parents and parent was horrible at some point until they learn to play nice and get their selves together. Plus I was glad that Tori finally told Krista off that chick was so bitter and jealous of Tori she tried to ruin a lot for her and the cheerleaders but still got dusted in the end because no one cares about her too much. What a waste…..

Noah has never had it easy. His clothes come second-hand, not off designer racks, and his home life is far from ideal. With his knowledge about computers, he’s determined to make it to college and beyond, even if everyone else has a free ticket. 

The minute Noah meets Tori, he thinks she’s just another entitled queen bee, like the one who made his life impossible at his old school. Meanwhile, Tori can’t wait to get away from Noah and his constant smirk.

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.

I hope 🤞 I like this book and don’t become bored with it… I think 🤔 I may have been bored with because I was sleepy and didn’t realize I fell asleep while reading 😂📖

Book Review:

****There’s just a few spoilers***
I was going through book two and three and found out her parents done found out about them in book three by rumors come on now. I was going to see if I can make the pain go away by reading book two and three, but I don’t think I’ll make it because if book one feels like a freaking drag no way I’m a sit through another 60+ chapters I bet that book two and three have. Just for Reagan to be whiny every chapter I wish Stacey take pictures as she did with Cameron and Reagan just so my headache would be gone with this chick. Like gah; I hate books like this when the author drags the story on forever especially with so many unnecessary chapters ugh could’ve stopped at 20 something then made the rest into the next two books.
But the thing is this book is good omg! But I cannot take it. I just wanted Lane to stop giving in to her for once, like sheesh like hiding the crap from people…. but get mad when they spread rumors, I’m like if she doesn’t give them something to talk about. Like half the guys and her friends know that Lane liked her and their friend Tobi and both their mom sees it too. But nooooo stupid little sixteen years Reagan want to drag it, I’m like lordt Lane is eighteen he should’ve told Reagan I’ll wait for you once you turn eighteen because lord this girl whine throughout the rest of the book once Lane told her how he felt and when he kissed her. I wanted Lane to tell her father when he was talking about Paul wanting to take her out, but no she didn’t want to tell her father… I’m not going to waste my brain cells on the next books at all though I want to know what happens next if I do decide on reading them I pray it’s less than 40 chapters,….. I’m not going to lie the last few chapters I was scheming through them. Plus there’s the 4th book about their friend Cameron I more than likely will read that one, curious since he had a thing for whiny Reagan too.

Book Review:

***Not that many spoilers but……****

But I want to point out that Tristian was way meaner well he was mean whereas Kane wasn’t mean at all. You could tell that Kane liked Skylar whereas Alexandria when it came to her Tristian…..Act like a prick; and mean but he realizes that he shouldn’t care what people’s thought of his relationship with Alexandria. You could tell that both he and Alex liked each other. & the same go for Kane; especially by how he took up for her at the movies and during the time at the fair with his ex-Donna and Skyler friends. I figure that Skylar ex-guy (I can’t even remember his name) was trash. I was glad that they found love in each other. & that Sky and Alex parents both found love in one other. I never knew that when Sky mom got shot that Alex dad was at the store and got shot too. They both were brave during that time. It also was interesting that they ended up in the same hospital room during there stay…
