What Did You Read This Weekend?

Happy Monday!!

Did you read this weekend? We sure did! You know how this goes…
we’ll show you ours if you show us yours!

Tell us what you’re reading!!

Amy: I’m reading Crash by Nicole Williams.. Julliard hopeful, Lucy Larson falls for bad boy (and I do mean bad), Jude Ryder and love’s about to become the thing that tears them apart. I have to be honest.. I’m not crazy about Lucy. I just haven’t felt a connection with her character yet, BUT that hasn’t detoured me from the storyline. So far so good.. looking forward to seeing how it ends!

Ana:  I read Ta Ta for Now and xoxoxo , the first two books in the Stories about Melissa series by Bethany Lopez.  I’ve also started the third book, Ciao, which will be released very soon.   These books are Ta Ta for Now - Coverquick, fun reads that are written for a younger YA audience, but with which we can probably all relate.  So xoxoxo - Covermany of the things that Missy writes about in her journal take me back to my high school years.  The friendships (both the strong ones and those easily broken), the crushes on the cute guy in school, the unpredictable emotions, and the dramas with her family made me nod and smile quite a bit.  Throughout these books, intermingled with the everyday, Missy faces some challenges as well and she turns out to be a very strong character!  Look for my review of these books soon!

Celeste: I read Touched by Cyn Balong. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this, but ended up absolutely loving it! This book is told from the POV of Nick Cross. He can see into the future, but if he changes his actions he also changes the future. It is physically and emotionally draining, and he just wishes he were normal. All he wants is to have the chance of friends and the dreams of even a girlfriend. It seems so out of reach until the day he is supposed to save a little girl’s life….and meets Taryn. This was such a great stand alone paranormal story with plenty of mystery, magic and romance. I highly rec!!

Christina: I started Confessions of an Angry Girl (Confessions #1) by Louise Rozett this weekend. Bitter about her father’s tragic death, Rose Zarelli begins her story with starting high school and all the trials that come with that time. I was a bit shocked at first to realize that the MC was only fourteen years old, but she’s already showing promising signs of being wise beyond her years, even while holding on to the awkwardness that comes with that age. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, and I’m kind of curious to see where this series goes. It might be fun to watch a girl grow up and remind me of a time long gone. She also has that sassy snark that I love my female characters to have, so we shall see.

  1. I’ve got Angry Girl waiting in my NetGalley requests. It sounds like a great read! Haven’t heard of the other books you ladies read this weekend, but they sound really fun and interesting! I finished When You Were Mine over the weekend – it was great!

    I finished what is available from the Lux series (since all of you have read it and gave it great reviews last week, I had to move it up on my list) I also read the Vincent brothers a sequal from the Vincent boys by Abby Glines. Then I started Meant to be by Tiffany King. We did a lot of driving this weekend which allowed me to do a lot of reading. I never seem to get enough!

      I love road trips…especially when someone else drives so I can read!! Hope you enjoyed the Lux series! I haven’t read the second Vincent Boys yet but it’s on my list…too many books…too little time! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I seem to have stumbled on a YA site, but anyway, thought to possibly bring in another view with the book Midddlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides that I was reading this weekend. Talk about confusion and passion in a tabu relationship…
