BOOK TITLE: Just for Now
AUTHOR: Abbi Glines
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster
RELEASE DATE: October 30th 2012
MAIN GENRES: New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Realistic Fiction

Amanda Hardy has been in love with Preston Drake ever since he called her beautiful on her sixteenth birthday. There is however the slight issue that he doesn't seem to notice her. Oh, and he's a manwhore. 
Preston Drake didn't get a good start to life, but he's done the best he can, and that means doing everything to make sure his brothers and sister get everything he never had. Even if that means sacrificing the one thing, the one girl, that means everything to him.

Well hello there, it's been a while, hasn't it?

I've recently realised I start a lot of my reviews with the word Wow. So instead, let me begin with this:

Holy. Mother. Of. Wows. Everywhere.

Abbi Glines sure knows how to write a good book. Having read all the other books in the Sea Breeze series, I thought I knew what to expect. However, I just wasn't prepared for Just for Now. It blew me away.

Don't get me wrong, the other books were all amazing, but this one just got to me.. It most likely had something to do with the flawless Preston Drake.

Did I mention yummy?

Frankly though, the entire book took my breath away. No, literally. The Prologue was so outrageously original that I had to go hyperventilate into a paper bag.

Ok, no I didn't. But I'd recommend keeping a paper bag handy when reading Just for Now. You've been warned.

On a more serious note though, I thought the character development was amazing, and I feel as if Preston is almost a different person by the end of the book.

I mean, the guy has his flaws, but damn; he's got some good things going for him:

He's athletic, and good enough to have a baseball scholarship.

He's caring and looks after his three younger siblings, and ultimately makes the best choices for them.

He's caring, and looks after his three younger siblings and ultimately makes the best choices for them.

He's patient when it comes to Amanda and doesn't make fun of her inexperience.

He has a way of making things right in the end. Even if it means he has to work hard to do so.

And he's just so goddamn huggable. I mean really, he's simply irresistibly huggable!

I'd highly recommend Just for Now to anyone, and everyone who likes/loves/cannot-live-without new adult romances with such realistic, flawed and yet utterly lovable characters.

Ironically, Just for Now will be one of those books that Just Stays with You.


I do feel a little sorry for all the women that Preston had to stop seeing though, I bet they cried their little hearts out.. 

PS: Madame Glines, if you're reading this, I know I want never gets, and that it's rude to make demands of people you've never actually met.. But Amanda got Preston and she really wanted him.

(I'm getting sidetracked)

So.. I really want a book about Krit; really bad! I'm a sucker for a band member, especially a lead singer!

Just keep it in mind please?

BOOK TITLE: Deadly Cool
AUTHOR: Gemma Halliday
PUBLISHER: Harper Teen
RELEASE DATE: October 11th 2011
MAIN GENRES: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Mystery,

Hartley Featherstone life isn't all that peachy right now; not only is her boyfriend cheating on her, but when he's suddenly accused of murder, Harley somehow ends up having to prove his innocence..
Oh, and try not to get killed trying.

This. Was. Amazing.

I'm not entirely sure I know where to begin so with the simple I guess: I loved this book! I fell in love with it when I added it to my to-read list on Goodreads, so when I casually walked past it at Waterstones, I backtracked! And you know what? It was actually reduced! I know, I know I have amazing luck sometimes!

Well, the plot was good, kept me guessing and even though I guessed who the murderer was, I felt myself doubting myself; I love a book that can make me do that! It's so refreshing from some of the more predictable YA novels I read..

I was grinning and 'mentally face-palming' (as our beloved Hartley would say) throughout this book, I loved every moment of this read, and read it in 4 hours strait! Which, I guess some people will probably roll their eyes at and say I read slowly, but whatever! At this point I don't really care about anything other than getting my hands on Social Suicide, my doorway to all things Chase and Hartley and Sam, who has officially claimed a place in my heart delegated to awesome best-friend characters..!

I'd recommend this to anyone interested in a book that will not only make them cringe and grin when it should, but leave them wanting more!

BOOK TITLE: Divergent
AUTHOR: Veronica Roth
PUBLISHER: Katherine Tegen Books
RELEASE DATE: February 28th 2012
MAIN GENRES: Young Adult, Romance, Sci-fi (Dystopian)

On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. 
So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

Hi (:

So.. I was really hesitant to read Divergent. I'm not really sure why, but it was probably because everyone was so excited about it and every time I so much as mentioned it this happened:

(Only, less adorable because these were people and not cutelittlekittehwithalldatfurandfuzzandcuteness♥♥♥)

I just wasn't feeling the love so it at all..
But then my friend approached me and politely, yet strangely firmly, asked me:

Told me about how amazing it was..

She also somehow managed to convince me to read it.

Surprising Right?



She was sooooooooo right!

I adored Divergent!
I understand what all the fuss was/is about now and gee I'm glad I read it!

I loved Four. A lot. I know his name is Tobias, but Four is so much.. Sexier I guess? I don't know why, I just think it is.. You agree right?

(Hope you were thinking the same :L)

Whenever he wasn't in the book I was pretty much going crazy waiting for him.. And spent most of the time looking for him or mentions of him..

And at one point I put the book down and ended up whacking my shoulder against the door frame by accident (As you do when you're as uncoordinated as me..) I ended up crying out for Four. And no, I am not kidding. At all.


Divergent was filled with suspense and left me reading until the wee hours of the morning all whilst biting my nails like crazy..

It was breathtaking!

BOOK TITLE: Flat-Out Love
AUTHOR: Jessica Park
PUBLISHER: Createspace
RELEASE DATE: May 18th 2011
MAIN GENRES: Young/New Adult, Contemporary Romance

This review includes minor spoilers, proceed at your own risk .

This was.. Well, I'd like to say incredible, but I don't feel that it really does the book justice.

I'll be honest, I've been a little prejudice when it comes to Flat-Out Love. I didn't, don't like the cover; I think the bubble writing put me off.. I don't know, it just didn't reach out to me I guess.
This delayed me reading Flat-Out Love for a long time and I think I even blocked it from my Goodreads recommendations at one point. I know, I know you hate me right now. I hate myself too..

So I was tidying my room a couple of days ago, and found it amongst the clutter. Just seeing those bubble letters made me frown.

I just picked it up and for some reason I will never, ever fully understand (although it probably comes down to one simple word: Boredom) I decided to read the first page..

Next thing I knew it was three hours later and my mum was telling me it was time for dinner. At this stage I pretty much resembled this:

"Huh?" *Blink blink*

Because let me tell you, once I did, finally get around to reading this utterly earth shattering book I just.. Well I don't even know that I can express how I feel about it.

I'll admit that it was predictive, if you saw any of my status updates you know that instead of having this reaction:


I instead, had this reaction:

But in my opinion, that didn't matter, because let's face it, when a book is predictable and still one of the best book you've read? You've got yourself a winner! It made me feel this whole range of emotions..

When Julie wes sad, I was sad:

When Julie was happy, I was happy:

When Julie craved Finn Is God (That's what I'm calling him, because I refuse to call him Finn.) I craved him too:

"Where is he? Where is he? Where is he?"

When Julie accomplished something with Celeste, I felt like I had too:

When Julie was serious, I was serious:

When Julie *cough* didn't *cough* wait patiently for replies, neither did I:

And when Julie was drunk..

..I was frikin' pissing myself laughing because she was hilarious!

Just to finish off.. I'd like to mention that climbing into bed with people always seems to work in books:


Last kitteh, just for cuteness levels (:
