Skin and Bones By Sherry Shahan

I am reviewing this book for NetGalley and I found the description of the book interesting.  


Skin and Bones by Sherry Shahan 

The book was an easy and pretty light read of being a book about teenage eating disorders. When so many young-adult novels about eating disorders are from a female of view, still this one is a new bright star among them because it is from a male point of view. I found this refreshing and a great idea.  
As great of an idea as it was the story line or plot line was full of holes and gaps. I kept thinking that I was missing pages but looking back I didn’t. I also felt that the time arc of the story was off or maybe it was the fact there was no in between actions. It was a light un-heavy read about eating disorders that hit on the seriousness of the health issues the young adults face in the book.

I gave this book a 3 stars because as I did love some points of this book and it could be a great read for someone else. 

This book comes out

Crashing Into You by B.D.Rowe

 I got to read this book early thanks to NetGalley.  I loved the cover and the over all description of the book but that is all it has going for it.

Crashing into You by B.D. Rowe

This book was really hard to finish. I found myself rolling my eyes every five minutes. The main characters in this book are fake, shallow and uninteresting as well as the secondarily characters. I didn’t care about them or what happen to them which is very disappointing, when I read a book I want to care about the characters but in this book I couldn’t. From page one we meet Sydney a young college girl who had some bad breaks in her short life so far, then we found out that she is in love with (wants to have sex with him, which we found out over and over again) he roommates boyfriend of a year. After that something happens to the roommate; now Sydney and Evan (the roommate’s boyfriend) can be together and somehow over like three chapters they are in love, happy (really after what happens with the roommate).  Then something bad happens again. She ends up in the hospital, Evan tells he some bad news. The end, really that’s the end of the book. I hate that kind of ending, and it’s not like I want to read any more about the characters but really have some kind of ending. I found this book unrealistic, shallow and overly based on Alcohol as well as just having bad things happen to one girl over and over. It was to all over the places to really understand the plot or if it had a plot to begin with. This book was a miss and that’s why I am giving it only one stars. I wouldn’t read it again or tell anyone to read this.  

If you want to try this book it comes out November 5th 2013 or i think you can get it now on  (link it for you)

Must Read 2014

I got to read this early thanks to NetGalley and i was not disappointed.i when into reading this book not knowing what this book was about,i just loved the cover. i love going into books blind not knowing anything. i found myself not able to put in down and read it in one sitting.

The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry : was a very real read for myself. Having just found out a few months ago that a family member has diabetes made this book so much more real. I found myself feeling that this could happen to anyone; both Kate and Aidan story lines are so real. I found myself wanting to tell them that it would be fine and they would make it. I love Aidan, his story line and how Jolene written him.She put real emotion into his character and you can really see that in the book. He is one of the best male written characters that i have read in a long time. She made me feel for him and at the right moments she makes you want to yell at him, then the next just hold him. As for Kate, Jolene did a great job writing how most teenage would act if that happen to them, pretended it’s not happening it in till it goes away. She really put work into how she written Kate,making her strong and weak all at the same time. i like when you read a story where the main character is strong but weak all at the same time.It makes you believe that this character is like a real person.No one is strong all the time.
I give this book a five out five stars.I am going to tell everyone to read this book. It’s the right mix of realism and romance to make everyone happy. I will for sure read this again. This is the second book I have read by Jolene Perry and will not be my last.

The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry come out in early 2014.
