The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

21 Dec

I would not have picked this book out by myself. I read the little blurb about it when it was a bestseller and I ignored it because I was so done with teen fiction at the time. They are usually so predictable, you know? Then I went to YouTube and some vlogger was listing her favorite books of all time, and she could not stop gushing. I rolled my eyes and decided to give it a try. Am glad I did. This is not your regular teen fiction. It is a work of art that I read overnight, simply because I could not bear to take a break. I finished it around 3 am and had a good cry. Then I woke my boyfriend up to tell him how much I love him. HA. HA. This one snuck up on me and I was impressed. First book to reduce me to tears; in a good way.

Book Description:

TIME Magazine’s #1 Fiction Book of 2012!
The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” —Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Happy Reading :)

Christmas Shorties!

16 Dec

I will be the first to admit that I have not been delving into romances lately. The monotony of the storylines finally got to me and I decided to expand my tastes. Something happened yesterday though. I found myself craving a little romance and that is exactly what I got in these Christmas novellas. Ok, the Nora Roberts is not explicitly Christmas themed. In fact the book was released two years ago around April May. But it still served to give me some holiday cheer. Hope these lovely stories will warm your evening as they did mine.

A Little Christmas Romance by H.M. Ward

There’s no such thing as second chances, and Brooke would know. This Christmas will be spent alone and celebrated, same as the last. It doesn’t matter that she’s a disgruntled mall elf, standing next to a chimney-scented Santa with the most annoying co-worker ever. It doesn’t make Christmas more magical. It’s just another day to endure, and the holiday can’t pass fast enough. That is, until her old flame, Chris, spots her. After taking a picture with Brooke in her elf costume, things take an unexpected turn. Maybe getting through the night won’t be so difficult after all.

 

Winter Rose by Nora Roberts

On a remote island cursed with eternal winter, a young queen heals a wounded soldier – and warms her heart with the joys of true love…

Genuine Lies by Nora Roberts

8 Dec

I used to be a huge fan of Nora Roberts and I still consider her one of my favorite writers, but sometimes I just can’t read her books and I need to take a break. So I took a break and tried some other writers and then, Genuine Lies happened. I read what it was about and I did not have to think twice about downloading it. I thought it was one of her recent books until I Googled it and found a book review on the CNN website from 1998! That should not deter you though because this book is simply amazing. It had this Jackie Collins Hollywood feel to it but the writing was purely Nora Roberts and that had me hooked for a weekend.

Hope you enjoy it too.

Book Description

A book to die for…

Eve Benedict is the last of the movie goddesses, a smoky-voiced sex symbol with two Oscars, four ex-husbands, and a legion of lovers to her name. There is no secret, no scandal she doesn’t know. Now Eve has decided to write her memoirs–no holds barred. All Hollywood begs her not to. But Eve has her reasons….

Julia Summers is the biographer Eve has handpicked to tell her story. Transported from her quiet life in Connecticut to glitzy Beverly Hills, Julia hates the limelight but loves her work–and the home it built for the ten-year-old son she’s raising alone. How can she refuse this chance of a lifetime?

But Eve’s elegantly sexy stepson, Paul Winthrop, will challenge Eve’s determination to tell her story–and Julia’s resolve to guard her heart. And as Julia learns just how far Eve’s enemies will go to keep her book from publication, she also discovers that Eve has one last, dark secret to share. It is one that will change Julia’s life–and could cut it brutally short.

READING LIST: Kiss And Makeup by Faye Robertson

10 Aug

My darlings,

Two jobs  and school is not leaving me enough time to do book reviews. Still, I want to update the blog regularly so you can get new books to check out. So, I’ll just be doing the short post thing until I have enough time to make it comprehensive. Bear with me and thank you for being so awesome. Thanks for sharing books and keep doing so.

Anywho….

All things movies intrigue me and that is why I picked out this book in a store when I came across it. I always wondered what make up artists do in movies and this gave me a bit of insight.

Kiss and Make Up by Faye Robertson

book description:

A fling of a lifetime…

With only a month left of filming on location in New Zealand, the last thing stuntman Eli Black is looking for is a relationship. He made a promise to his brother before he died that his next stop would be Hollywood. But Eli’s will is put to the test when he meets the sexy new makeup artist, Tabby.

Tabby Rogers is heading off to London to a prestigious makeup artist school, and after her ex ruined her previous plans to attend, she’s determined that nothing will stand in her way again. But a steamy, no-strings-attached affair with gorgeous Eli is too tempting to pass up.

The sparks burn hotter than imaginable, but as responsibilities pull at them from opposite ends of the globe, it quickly becomes clear that something’s got to give. Must Tabby sacrifice her hard-won career for love? Or will Eli forever be the one who got away?

I’ll be honest here. I prefer light reads that will make me laugh and help me relax. It’s been a couple of months since I read one of those gripping serious book, you know?  Anyways, I put my laziness aside and read this and it felt good when I was done with it. You should try it too.
