Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.



Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all. 




  




Beautiful, heart aching, extraordinary story.



There is a lot I could say about this book, and you while experience a lot of different emotions while reading WHISPER TO ME . It’s a type of book that you will find yourself wondering how it will end, but at the same time don’t want it to end. When I came across the book at the library, I knew that it was going be intense, but I don’t think that even I realize how extreme it would get. There were times that I had to pause and think about what I read, and once I reached the end of the book, it was almost impossible for me to get the story out of my mind. I loved the way it was written, in a letter format, I thought that it was a great way to tell a story. You will get hooked from the first sentence, and you will wonder what happened, and how and why she broke his heart. Through the years I have read a lot of books about mental illness, but nothing like this. I feel as this was the most realistic one that I have read, at least so far. Once you read it, your emotions will be everywhere for a while. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, for a few days after I reached the ending.



Once Cassie started to hear a voice that wasn’t there, I knew that she was in trouble. I did wonder if Cassie had an actual mental illness, or if it was due to the traumatic experiences that she went through, like post-traumatic stress disorder. I cannot imagine having to go through what she went through, her mother’s death that she saw, then finding someone’s foot. To be honest, I don’t think that I would be able to handle it. I am not that surprised that she started to hear a voice. I do believe that the voice that she started hearing was her voice, the angry part of her. I think if I was in her situation, I would be terrified. I know that she did what voice told her because she believed it was real and that someone would get hurt if she didn’t do what the voice told her to. I do know that Cassie needed help, I was afraid that she would seriously hurt herself or someone that she loved, if she didn’t get help. Even her father realized before she did, that hearing a voice, talking to herself all time isn’t normal. I got so into this story, that there were couple nights that I ended up reading late without realizing it. WHISPER TO ME was intriguing.




WHISPER TO ME was the first book that I read by NICK LAKE and now that I have, I cannot wait to check the rest of his books. This book represents mental illness beautifully, and to me, it was realistic. I did feel as if this book was a bit too long, otherwise I couldn’t get enough of this story. I did wonder what happened after the ending, if he got her email and if he met her afterwards. You cannot to help but wonder what happens afterwards, after an ending like that one. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. Once you pick up, you won’t be able to put down, each page will have you craving for me. Be prepared for an emotional, and a thrilling ride.

Fight for your dreams, even if it means breaking a few rules.



Seventeen-year-old Ryan Russell has life perfectly planned. If she keeps up her hard work, one day she’ll take over the family business: owning the Buckley Beavers, a minor league baseball team, and become one of the only female General Managers in the sport.



But when the newest member of the Beavers, child-phenom Sawyer Campbell, shows up, Ryan’s carefully laid plans are thrown a major curveball. Sawyer is far more charming than the arrogant jocks she usually manages, his ambition rivals her own workaholic nature—and he’s completely out of bounds. Fraternizing is against every rule in the Beaver’s handbook.



Then Ryan’s divorced parents butt heads over the future of the Beavers, and her mom plans to sell her shares to a business group known for relocating teams. If this happens, Ryan’s dreams of becoming GM disappear. In a bid to save her future, she partners with Sawyer to use his star power to draw in sponsors who will keep the team in Buckley. But the more time she spends with him, the more impossible it becomes to play by the Beaver’s rules, and she can’t afford a strikeout on the path to her dreams.



Full count with two outs, Ryan’s one pitch away from losing the whole ball game. 




 






I had always loved books about sports, especially baseball. I had never played baseball but I am always watching it and a big fan of the game. I love reading books about baseball, and when I found that this book is about baseball, I knew that I had to check out. It was different from the other books that I read in the past that involved baseball, but it a good way. STEALING HOME was the type of book that didn’t take me long to get into the story, and there wasn’t anything that I didn’t love about this book. Baseball, romance, drama, family. All of those are everything that I love about YA. Once I started reading it, was hard for me to put the book down, and if it wasn’t for work, I wouldn’t have. There was something about this book, the way it was written and the story, the character that the more I read it, harder I fell in love with the story. I also love book about sports romance, I have a friend who writes those and I can’t get enough of them. STEALING HOME was the book that I am glad that I came across.



My favorite character, which is a hard one for me. I loved both Ryan and Sawyer, who were both unique in their own way. Ryan, you could tell how much she loved baseball and I couldn’t help but wonder how her mother didn’t see, how she didn’t see how passionate she was about running the team one day. I was sure that she would see it, when she would see how hard she was fighting to make sure that her mother wouldn’t sell her part of team. I loved how passionate Ryan was about the team, and how she tried to come up with ideas, to make sure that her mother didn’t sell the team. I was angry with Ryan’s mother, for not at least hearing her out. I don’t blame for Ryan being angry with her. I do admit that the ending did surprise me, but I feel that her mother finally realized how much the team meant to Ryan. I loved the relationship that Ryan has with her father, and how both of them worked together. Their relationship reminds me a lot of relationship with both of my parents.



Sawyer and Ryan, it was clear how much Sawyer cared about Ryan. Considering how he wanted to help her with trying to save the team, and the ideas that they both came up with. I think that the both of them made an amazing team. It didn’t take long for me to notice how the both of them felt about each other. I couldn’t help if Sawyer and Ryan would end up together, or if she would keep pushing Sawyer away due to her rule. I was sure that at some point she might push him away too much. I was rooting for both of them through the entire the book. Once I reached the ending, I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen next. STEALING HOME is a story that you will find yourself wondering about long after you reach the last page. I highly recommend this book to all YA, Sports and romance fans.

Mary Reichert is one of the best sharpshooters in the country, and in the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza her skills are on display in every performance. But unless the man responsible for her brother's death is brought to justice, Mary's fame and accomplishments seem hollow.



She feels helpless in the face of the murderer's money, power, and connections. The only bright spot in her days is the handsome journalist who keeps attending their shows. 



 
 






A Must Read.



I think that it’s safe to say, I am in love with this series. I didn’t finish it that long ago, and already craving for the next book in the series. I loved the first one, WHEN YOU ARE NEAR but I loved WHEREVER YOU GO even more and I am not sure if it’s just me, but felt like there were a lot more going on. I loved that it has a bit mystery added to it, one that kept reader wondering what was going to happen next. There wasn’t a moment in the book where it didn’t keep my attention. Just when I thought about putting it down, there was a major twist that I didn’t see coming, which made it harder to put the book down, when I had to. Especially everything that happened with Jason. I knew that he liked Lizzy, but I had no idea how far he would go to get her. What he had wasn’t love, it was obsession, and when he started come up with all those plans, I knew that he needed help. I actually worried for her, worried that he would hurt her, to get what he wanted. That was one of the twists that even I didn’t see coming. I love twists like that, because it makes you wonder as a reader, what will happen afterwards.



I loved Mary since she was mentioned in the first book, and I wanted to find more about her. I loved reading about the tricks that she did. I could picture it all, and I was amazed by her talent. I also felt bad for her, about her brother. I hope that she can find a way, to put her brother’s murders behind bars. It was clear from beginning, the attraction that was between Mary and Chris. I could tell just by the way that the two of them seemed to connect from the start. I do wish that Chris didn’t try to push her away, but I understand why he did. I cannot even imagine, having to live with that guilt all those years. I think having Wes as a friend helped me, who helped him accept god and understand why Chris was hesitant at first about it, considering everything that he went through. I could tell that Mary cared for Chris deeply, the way that she tried to help him, to have him open up at her. I did feel that sometimes she pushed a bit too much. I was rooting for two of them, I wanted for them to end up together. They deserved happiness, and I could tell how happy they were when they were together.




Now that I read these books, I know why a lot of people like TRACIE PETERSON and I cannot wait to read her other books. I am eager to read Ella’s story, who one of my favorites in WHAT COMES MY WAY , but not sure if I can wait until October to see what happens. I am kind of curious of what going happen to Jason, if they will find them. I love the covers in this books, they are so stunning. That’s what captured my attention in first place, the cover and the title is what made me want pick up the book and check out and I am so glad that I did. These books also wants me to read more western books. Do you enjoy historical fiction, with mix of western and some suspense? Check these books out, you won’t regret it. You will fall in love.

Three friends, two love stories, one convention: this fun, feminist love letter to geek culture is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.



Charlie likes to stand out. She’s a vlogger and actress promoting her first movie at SupaCon, and this is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star Reese Ryan. When internet-famous cool-girl actress Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.



Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with her best guy friend Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about a fan contest for her favorite fandom, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.





 






It didn’t take me long to fall in love with this book. This story had everything that I love about books, and it had me going through so many emotions. QUEENS OF GEEK a story that I wished I read when I found out about the book. A story that I couldn’t seem to put it down, and only reason I did was due to work, otherwise I would read it all day if I could. Actually I am still thinking about it, and wondering what happened to Charlie, Taylor, Jamie, Alyssa afterwards, and how could I not? I felt as all of those became my friends through the book. They are the type of friends that reminds me of some of my friends, and the type that would make amazing friends. I loved the friends that Charlie, Taylor and Jamie had, that no matter what was going on, they were always there if one of them needed someone. They remind me of my best friends, and some of them are 1000 miles away, but always there. What they have, that’s a true friendship, and I know that they will be friends for years to come. I am not sure if I have a favorite character, but I did love Taylor and Charlie. They were the type of characters that you couldn’t help but love, and the ones that you wanted to be friends with. I loved reading from both of their point of views and even though it took place in same place, I felt as if I was reading two different stories.



QUEENS OF GEEK was real to me. The setting, the characters and everything that they had to deal with. I went to my first con last year with friends and I loved it, I did not cosplay but I saw a lot who did and it looked amazing, and I am thinking about it next time. I loved reading about it as well, and it makes me want to try it even more, next time I go to a con. I could relate to Taylor quite bit, like her, I have anxiety and I did use to have social anxiety but it got better through the years. I knew how she was feeling, and it reminded me how anxious I would get, thinking about even talking to someone I didn’t know, and I still do, but it got much better. Taylor is the type of person that I would love to be friends with. I felt proud of her, despite her anxiety, going to Con and even entering a fan contest, that’s a big step for her. I loved how her friends were always there if she did panic. Jamie, it was clear how much he cared for her, and I was waiting for her to figure out as well. I was rooting for the two of them to get together through the entire book. I was actually grinning when the two of them kissed.




I don’t think I could choose a favorite couple, even if I tried. I loved Alyssa and Charlie, as much as I loved Jamie and Taylor. I had a feeling that Alyssa liked her from the moment that the two of them met. I was happy for Charlie, that she was being treated the way that she deserved to be. I have feeling that she was happier with Alyssa that she was when she was with Reese. I understand why Charlie wanted keep their relationship private, but Alyssa wasn’t Reese and it was clear how crazy she was about her. I am kind of curious of what happens with them next, if the two of them stay together. I am hoping that they do. I have read few LGBT books through the years, and so far this has been one of my favorites. There was one character I had hard time liking, Reese. He’s everything that I dislike about guys, and I hate how he treated Charlie, her friends and how he made her feel. Honestly, I don’t know how she put up with him for as long as she did. The characters, the story is not all I loved about this book. I loved the cover, just look at it. The cover itself will want you to pick up the book and check out. You definitely should. QUEENS OF GEEK is a book that deserves so much more than five stars, and you will fall in love with it more, every chapter.



QUEENS OF GEEK is a second book that I read by JEN WILDE , and I know that she will be one of my favorites. I cannot wait to check her next book out. She inspired me, to not give up. To keep on writing, and that’s what I plan to do. QUEENS OF GEEK is real, and everything that happened in this story, is something that can happen in real life. I could picture everything that was happening, and I was blown away. Highly recommend this book. It was spectacular.

Meet Scarlett Epstein, BNF (Big Name Fan) in her online community of fanfiction writers, world-class nobody at Melville High. Her best (read: only) IRL friends are Avery, a painfully shy and annoyingly attractive bookworm, and Ruth, her weed-smoking, possibly insane seventy-three-year-old neighbor.



When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school. And if they ever find out what Scarlett truly thinks about them, she’ll be thrust into a situation far more dramatic than anything she’s ever seen on TV…



 







Hilarious, spectacular, extraordinary.



I was blown away by SCARLETT EPSTEIN HATES IT HERE , and it craving for another ANNA BRESLAW book, when I reached the end of this one. This book been on my to read for a long time, and now that I have read it, I wish that I didn’t wait this long to check it out. SCARLETT EPSTEIN HATES IT HERE is a book that will have you laughing on several occasions, but at the same time it will have you feeling a lot more other emotions. It roller coasters ride. A book that you cannot help but fall in love with. This book did take few pages until I got into the story, and once I did, I was hooked and I had force myself to put the book down few times. I even read it until late few times, because I lost track of time. I loved that the fanfiction that Scarlett wrote was mentioned and I loved reading her fanfiction story, which hooked me into story even more. I used to write fanfiction years ago, before I stared writing short stories and books, and it felt as I could relate to Scarlett in a way. Scarlett is a type of character that you cannot help but love, and out of all characters in the book, she was one of my favorites.



Ruth, which was another favorite character of mine. She’s the type of character, friend that will make you laugh, no matter what sort of day you were having. To me, it seemed as Ruth looked out for Scarlett, as if she was her daughter. And Scarlett knew that she could come to her if she had a question or if she needed advice. My heart broke for Scarlett after what happened with Ruth, and I couldn’t even imagine what she must thought, considering that Scarlett wasn’t aware that Ruth was sick. Even I didn’t see it coming, and like Scarlett, I was in complete shock over it. There was even a part of me, wanting to pull Scarlett into a hug as well. That was one of my favorites about this book, the story felt realistic to me, and I know that it is something that could actually happen in real life and is easy to connect and relate to characters that way. I wasn’t sure what to think of Gideon at first, I had mixed feelings about him, and wasn’t sure if I liked how he treated her. One minute he was laughing with her, spending time with her and next he was pushing her away. It was as if he couldn’t make his mind about her. Of course I couldn’t help but wonder if the two of them would end up together.



A moving, realistic story. SCARLETT EPSTEIN HATES IT HERE You will laugh, and a book that I would highly recommend to anyone. A story that you will find yourself thinking about afterwards.

CONTAINS SPOILERS


In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king's champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.



The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass—and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world. 




 






Action. Adventure. Suspense.



THRONE OF GLASS is the type of books that you hear about, and yet don’t get around to reading it, until few books later. That was me. I heard about it for a while, and once I read it, I wished that I read it sooner. This is 2nd time reading the book, I have read it in 2017 the first time, and wanted to re-read it so could read other books in the series. I loved it, as much as I did the first time that I read it, if not more. There were a lot of going on and quite bit of suspense, and that is the type of books that I adore. Stories that will have you keep guessing, and one of the reasons that you will keep on turning the pages. Like Celaena, I wondered who keep on killing the champions and in such brutal way and keeping you wondering why, if there were reasons behind those murders. Despite reading this book for the second time, I couldn’t put the book down because I was hooked to the story once again. THRONE OF GLASS is a book that will have you thinking, wondering. You will be eager to get the next book in series, from the moment that you reach the ending of the book.



Celaena, first of all I love that name and it fits her perfectly. I loved this character from the start, the attitude, and how she was determined to be champion. I am aware that she was doing it for her freedom, but even other champions ended up dead, she didn’t give up, she kept on going. I was rooting her from the start, to win. Even if I knew that whatever the King had planned for her if she won, it couldn’t be anything good. . Even at the end, she kept on trying, she still didn’t give up despite what was happening with her. I was hoping that someone would notice and come to her rescue. I cannot even begin to imagine, to attempt to fight in her condition. I was starting to think that she wouldn’t make it, that it would be the end. I was terrified for her. I can’t imagine how Prince Dorian felt, having to watch her and knowing that there wasn’t anything he could do to help her. I was still hoping that she find some way out of the situation. The descriptions were some vivid, that I could feel all the pain, the emotions that she was feeling.



Chaol and Prince Dorian, I am not sure who I liked more. I don’t think I would be able to choose between the two of them if I had to. I do know that both Chaol and Prince Dorian cared deeply for Calaena. I have a strong feeling that she cared about both of them too, even if she didn’t want to at first. I cannot help but wonder who she would end up with, if Chaol would finally admit his feelings for her, or if she would figure out. If I had pick who I would pick for her, I don’t think I could because I think they are both a good fit for her, at least right now. I am curious what is going develop between them in the next book. Another favorite of mine in this book was Princess Nehemia and her friendship with Calaena, she needed a friend like her. I feel as if she never had such great friend, like Princess Nehemia. I believe that what two of them have is a true friendship, and I hope that it stays that way.



THRONE OF GLASS was magical, extraordinary. I couldn’t get enough. I cannot wait to see what happens next with everyone, especially Calaena, Prince Dorian, Chaol and Princess Nehemia. If you love fantasy, this is a book that you should pick up. I recommended to everyone.

A magic passed down through generations . . .



Georgina Fernweh waits with growing impatience for the tingle of magic in her fingers—magic that has been passed down through every woman in her family. Her twin sister, Mary, already shows an ability to defy gravity. But with their eighteenth birthday looming at the end of this summer, Georgina fears her gift will never come.



An island where strange things happen . . .



No one on the island of By-the-Sea would ever call the Fernwehs what they really are, but if you need the odd bit of help—say, a sleeping aid concocted by moonlight—they are the ones to ask.



No one questions the weather, as moody and erratic as a summer storm.



No one questions the (allegedly) three-hundred-year-old bird who comes to roost on the island every year.



A summer that will become legend . . .



When tragedy strikes, what made the Fernweh women special suddenly casts them in suspicion. Over the course of her last summer on the island—a summer of storms, of love, of salt—Georgina will learn the truth about magic, in all its many forms. 





 





Emotional, Astonishing, Magical.




When I picked up SUMMER OF SALT , I wasn’t sure what to expect. I only read one book by KATRINA LENO and that was years ago. What caught my attention was the cover, the title and the summary of the book, which sounded something that I would enjoy. After only reading couple pages, I knew that I was going to love this story. I did. I fell in love with this story, and I am not sure if I can even explain in words how much I loved it. SUMMER OF SALT is a type of story that you cannot help but fall in love with, and the book that will have you going through the emotions from start to end. I finished it last night and I am still thinking about the story. I love magical realism books, and I have read few through the years. I think that SUMMER OF SALT was one of the best magical realism books that I have read. I loved the fact that magic was mentioned in the book right from the start. From beginning, I couldn’t help but wonder what Georgina’s gift would be, and there was a part of me that wondered if it would come. I never imagined what her gift would be, but then how could I? It is a unique gift. Then that is not the only twist in the book, and that was what will keep you on reading.



Like Georgina, I had a feeling that something was off about Mary, after Annabella’s death. At first, I assume that she was just shocked about the way she was killed. As time passed, she started acting weirder, and didn’t seem like she was herself. I started to wonder if maybe she knew something about her death. I knew that she was hiding something. I also was aware that what she was hiding, couldn’t be anything good. I enjoyed that the story had a bit of mystery to it, and I wonder what Georgina would end up discovering about her sister. I never even guessed of what could happened to her that night. I cannot imagine how terrified she must be. I understand why she didn’t tell her sister, she was scared. I would be to. Once the truth was uncovered, I was in shock, considering who had hurt her. I should have seen it, how he always followed her, gave her gifts. That’s not an excuse to do what he done to her. As I said, SUMMER OF SALT ending was filled with twists that messed with your emotions, and made you wish that It wasn’t the ending. I wanted to hug Mary, to hold her. I wanted to cry along with her, my heart broke for her.



SUMMER OF SALT was a beautifully written book. Every single page. To me, it almost felt like a poetry, the one that you couldn’t pull yourself from. I feel as if this is a book that everyone should check out. It will have you wishing that you picked this book up sooner. A book that deserves a lot more than five stars. After reading it, I cannot wait to check rest of KATRINA LENO books. A story that will hook you from the start until the end.

Not until charming and handsome Nathan Sinclair walks into her life, whom she hated on sight. 



 


(Thank you, to the author for sending a ebook copy, in exchange for honest review)



I had high hoped when I read the synopsis of the book, which sounded the type of stories that I love. When an author contacted me and asked me if I was interested in reading and reviewing her book, I said yes and was excited to. I wanted to like this book, and I tried to. There were parts in the book that were interesting, and that had me wondering what would happen next. LOVE REVISTED has a potential, and the storyline in general was interesting, but unfortunately the book was hard for me to read. Right away, I noticed grammar issues, and formatting issues, and after a while it got hard to read the book, but the plot was interesting enough that I kept on going. Grammar wasn’t the only issue though, I also had issues the way that character was acting in the book, to me, it didn’t feel realistic. I couldn’t relate to any of the character even if I tried to. Rose was supposed be a college graduate, and yet half of the time she acted like she was a teenager. Plus the way all the characters were interacting with each other, it felt as they didn’t communicate well.



LOVE REVISTED has a potential, and the storyline in general is good. The therapy that Rose had, it didn’t feel professional to me, and I been to therapy before in past and that not how the first session would go. I felt as if Alex and Rose relationship progressed too fast. I could tell that the two did care about one another, I just wish that Rose did not push him about their past lives that much. I had high hopes for this book, but it turned out completely different from what I imagined this story to be. I did like the storyline in general. I know this is mostly negative, but it was hard for me to get into this story, and it did not hold my attention like I hoped that it would. It’s why I only gave it two stars.
