@TwitterGirl by Nic Tatano – Review and Summery by yours truly

Cassidy Shea is more commonly known as @TwitterGirl. Twitter Girl is a sassy, sarcastic, clever and often rude Twitter. After losing her job as a reporter and her boyfriend due to a controversial tweet, she’s offered a position on Will Becker’s presidential campaign. All she has to do is tweet bad, catchy things against the other candidates. That’s easy for our twitter girl, sarcasticness and sass come to her as naturally as breathing. It doesn’t hurt that Will is easy on the eyes and quite single at the moment. But what happens when you add in some friendly competition from her best friend for his eyes? Sprinkle in Cassidy’s disabled brother who’s totally in love with the best friend? And maybe add a pinch of an adorable coworker? You end up with an amazing novel by Nic Tatano. This is politics and with politics comes secrets, drama and scandal. Will twitter girl be able to handle all of Will Becker’s secrets? Well, you’ll just have to #findout 😉

Tweet Tweet this book was sweet. I read TwitterGirl back in May of this year. Nic is truly an amazing author. While I haven’t  read anything else (nor will I probably read anything else) by Nic Tatano, I really enjoyed this book. It’s hard not to fall in love with some of our male characters here and I think every girl wishes to have even just a spark of Cassidy’s sass. This book has it’s laugh-out-loud funny part yet still has a captivating plot. Filled with unexpected as well as easily predicted twists this was a fairly fast read. However while I mostly read what would be considered young adult (YA) novels, this is not. I would recommend TwitterGirl for ages 16-55. This is defiantly a chick-lit (like a chick-flick but for books -literature- not movies). TwitterGirl definitely has it’s romance going, and a fair share of” awes” and “ohhs”. Some slightly mature subjects were discussed but nothing you wouldn’t find in a PG-13 Movie. Rating wise I would give this an 8 out of 10. While I loved TwitterGirl it’s not really a book to write home about. Definitely a good read but not a life changing oh my God wow type of a book.

Sorry about how little I have been posting guys. IT’S BEEN LIKE 8 MONTHS!!! I got side tracked with the end of school year buzz then I had a crazy busy/awesome summer. I also just started high school a few weeks ago. The only reason I got the time to post this is because I am home, sick 😦 I’ve also been pretty busy reading. SInce January first 2015 I have read over 110 novels. A big chunk of which are from wattpad which I am planning on (if i have time) writing a post about in the future. Love to all my wonderful followers…………

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally – Review by yours truly

Starting senior year Jordan is a starting quarterback and team captain. She is also girl.  You’d think father, who’s a football star, would be happy right? But it’s quite the opposite. He wants her to stop playing and refuses to come to her games. But Jordan doesn’t care.  Its Jordan’s life, literally.  She lives and breaths, thinks and sleeps football. To be captain and one of the best quarterbacks in her league it has to be that way. Acting like one of the guys is easy for her, it is her.  Her best friends are all guys, well all her friends are guys. Girls just don’t get her and she doesn’t get them. The guys take her seriously, they have to if they want to go to the championships and if she wants to get onto the best college team they need to make it to the championships. That’s why she has a strict no dating guys on the team rule, and anyways the guys on her team are like (over protective) brothers to her. She’s known them all since forever. Senior year is looking bright. Well that’s until this new guy shows up with some kick-ass abs and a great throw, almost better than hers. Almost. He changes everything. Is he trying to steal her spot? No he can’t be and anyways coach wouldn’t let happen, would he? And this new guy, Ty, is actually nice guy. Why can’t Jordan stop thinking about him? He is totally messing with her head, which is bad, but the thoughts are good. She thought she was immune to the power of all guys, up until now. No one before Ty could mess with her when she was in the zone, not even her best friend Henry could. They are like practically the same person, Jordan and Henry, inseparable since a young age. But now on top of everything, Henry’s acting weird. How much can one girl take? Find out in Catching Jordan (The first book in the Hundred Oaks series) By Miranda Kenneally.

Catching jordanCatching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally is a cute, flirty, sporty romance novel. Miranda has created a story filled with all my favorite things; sports, humor, friendship and obviously romance! This novel is filled with unexpected twists and turns, laughs and tears. I love this book for a couple of reasons. One, being the author is amazing and two, being I haven’t read another book like it. What book has the main character being a female football player who doesn’t like dresses or girl talk, a girl that guys actually respect?  I think in some ways it’s really a powerful book. It goes against a lot of stereotypes and to me that is a beautiful thing. I would give this book a 9 out of 10. The only reason it’s not a 10 out of 10 is a spoiler, so I wont say it. You’ll have to read it and contact me separately to learn why! I would say it’s for ages 12 to anyone who likes YAs.

For this review and all future YA novel reviews, I will only put the youngest I think you can be to read it. YA books are not really an ages thing, they are more of a preference thing. I know friends mother’s who only read YAs. Sorry this review took longer then expected to get posted!

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – Review by Yours Truly

Emily is Sloane’s best friend. And that is all most people know about her. That and she is pretty fast, given her track record. But Emily doesn’t mind, she has Sloane who talks to other people to make up for her shyness. They spend every waking moment together, so it all works out. But that all changes when the summer before their senor year, Sloane and her family leave with out a word. No explanation, no good bye, no future address. But there is a list, a list that comes in the mail. This isn’t the first list from Sloane and it’s defiantly not a grocery list. It a “must do” list for Emily and the only thing she has left of her best friend. Emily sets out to complete the list and find her best friend. But skinny dipping and kissing a stranger? Really Sloane? And why does she keep running into Frank? The perfect student who just wants to save the world, and maybe her too? In Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, Emily’s in for a whirlwind of life changing events, new friendships and new experiences as Emily is pushed past her bonds, thrown into a wild and possibly life changing summer in hopes of finding her best friend. And maybe some romance along the way too.

since youve been gone

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, is not your classic teen summer romance book. There’s more to it than a boy and a girl. Which is refreshing after reading so many of the same story told with different characters. It’s about friendship, love, loyalties, fun and finding yourself. Morgan writes amazingly true characters. She is an amazing writer. As my former English teacher would say,” she uses juicy words”. She writes in a way that keeps you guessing and interested. Falling in love with this book is pretty easy, it’s putting it down that’s the hard part. I can honestly say its one of the few books that made me want to go out and do something. Not change the world or feed the hungry but it made me want to experience more things. I was torn between getting up and trying to do the stuff Emily had to do and reading more (needless to say reading always won). But after I finished, I had a new found love for my best friend and we made a List of our own with over 50 things that will push us to do thing we wouldn’t with out it. So we are competing to see who can complete more by the end of 2015. We have a very competitive friendship so it should be interesting (I will obviously win). But probably not as exciting as Emily’s adventures. I would give Since You’ve Been Gone a nine out of ten. It’s a fun read for I’d say ages 9 to 25, defiantly a YA Novel. Its a cute romance and a quick read. And I guess in a perfect universe it would have an epilogue.

If you’ve read Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear your opinion of it!

Seems like even though this post is about Since You’ve been gone, it seems like I am the one who has been gone. I have another review due to post on Friday, it’s a review on Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and would like to give a quick shout out to my mom to wish her the happiest birthday! Go see what she is posting at Taking the World on with a Smile

Beautiful

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Roads by Rebecca

This is a poem by a good friend of mine Rebecca. She is an AMAZING poet and is trying to get published. I wish her all the luck in the world. Here is one of her poems-

Roads

The road goes ever on and on,
This road that is my life,
A hard road that leaves blisters on my feet,
With a harsh sun beating down on my back,
With no horizon and twists and turns everywhere,
It is easy to get lost on my road.
But sometimes, I meet someone,
Someone who provides some shade from the heat,
But they are small shadows,
I am gone,
They are gone,
Far too soon,
I am on the road again.
My road goes ever on and on.

Quote

Wisdom

Wisdom begins in wonder. -Socrates

I wonder if this is true. I believe it is do you?

Quote

“Don’t tell me…

“Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”

― Paul Brandt

So I saw this quote on my friends status and fell in love with it! The impossible can always be done! Believe in your self and others!
