Gus (Bright Side #2) by Kim Holden

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

The journey that began in top-rated, best-selling Bright Side, continues ... 
This is the story of Gus.  Losing himself.  Finding himself.  And healing along the way. 
“ … but the honest-to-God truth is I don’t even know how to function anymore. Bright Side wasn’t only my best friend; she was like my other half ... the other half of my brain, the other half of my conscience, the other half of my sense of humor, the other half of my creativity, the other half of my heart. How do you go back to doing what you did before, when half of you is gone forever?” 
Review:
*Note: You should have read Bright Side prior to reading this book. It is a continuation of the same story and there are some spoilers for that book ahead

And everything was right in the world. That is how I felt when I got to the end of Gus. Man I tell you after reading Bright Side it was like I was lost. How would I ever move on from that? What could I read…

Bright Side (Bright Side #1) by Kim Holden

Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Secrets.  Everyone has one.  Some are bigger than others.  And when secrets are revealed,  Some will heal you ...  And some will end you. 
Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks. 
They both feel it.  But they each have a reason to fight it.  They each have a secret. 
And when secrets are revealed,  Some will heal you … 

And some will end you. 
Review:
Wow. Okay. Bright Side. I am going to an author signing in June and have been trying to read a book by each author. I am in a group for the event where people discuss the …

Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.
Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously--and at great risk--documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope th…

Synopsis:

Gemma McDougall is certain about three things: One, she’s never going to lose her Latina ass. Two, her career is more important than the crappy (and nonexistent) relationships she’s had to endure her entire adult life. Three, she’s going to get the next promotion to detective if it kills her. But then her job literally almost kills her, and she’s forced into unwanted medical leave.
Sam London is certain about three things: One, he has no idea how to have a normal adult relationship and will likely die cold and alone, ravaged by wild dogs.

Three, he has no idea what kind of trouble Gemma McDougall has gotten herself into, but he’s going to be a part of it, no matter what.

Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan.

Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie's best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his.

Unfortunately Jared, co-owner in a business that 'consults' in dangerous hostage and kidnapping situations, makes an enemy who's d…

Welcome to Sugartown (Sugartown #1) by Carmen Jenner

Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.
Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.
But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.
Nineteen year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.
She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear. Secrets that won't just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk, too. When those secrets come to light, their r…

Blog Update

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been updating the blog everyday like I used to. Well the short story is I am taking classes for the rest of the year and won't have as much time to read as I used to which means I won't be able to post as often.

The long story? I moved to Germany 4 years ago and my German is still not that good. I was taking classes for a while, just an hour a day, and that was working, but slowly. Then they got too expensive and I had to stop so I tried to learn through various other methods. I met up with a friend who was also learning and we studied together, but I really need a class to motivate me and make me do the work I should. If left to my own devices I will just put it off and read instead which doesn't help. So I signed up for some intensive classes with the hopes that by the end of the year I will be able to speak German fairly well. They are all morning plus homework and other events so it is a commitment. I am really motivated …

Fear Me (Broken Love #1) by B.B. Reid

Image
Synopsis:


I don't believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.
I believe in fear.
He taught me how to be afraid.
We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For ten years, he's been my tormentor and I've been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid.
Now he's back and wants more than just my tears. You see...he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge...and he knows just how to get it.
PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS. This book is a new adult and contains rough elements such as harsh language, mild violence, strong sexual content, alpha male, antihero, blackmail, and dubious consent.
Fear Me, in all, contains sensitive themes many people aren’t able to swallow.
Review:

Note: This book made me very angry. It is not a romance. There will be spoilers and this may get ranty so you have been warned

Fear Me was a horrible read for me. I read it a while ago, but haven't been able to rea…
