The Art of Us By Teri Wilson - Review

Hello, all.

I have to say this was a book that was different for me. I try to read different kinds of contemporary romance novels so that I can experience what they have to offer. Teri Wilson offers that in spades with every book that she writes. I love her work and she is the sweetest person you have ever met.

Now onto the review...

The Art of Us 
by 
Teri Wilson 

Harper Higgins, art history professor and Vincent van Gogh scholar, doesn’t need a man. She needs an artist. Fast. The art show she’s counting on to secure her tenure is in trouble.

So when she collides with a ruggedly handsome man carrying a basket of violets on a rainy night in Boston, she thinks she’s found her miracle. Cynical, brooding ex-soldier Tom Stone can paint. And he’s quite good. He just needs Harper’s artistic touch.
But once she talks him into pretending he’s a long-lost descendant of van Gogh, the trouble really begins. As the art opening draws near, their identities—both real and imagined—hang in the balance. The student becomes the master as Tom teaches Harper that passion is its own work of art…

4/5 Stars
Review: 

This book is designed and meant to art lovers. 

The two characters are completely different from each other and a little broken in their own ways. One night and a basket of Violets will change everything. All the pieces of their lives fall into place with every turn of the page. There is nothing not to love about this romance as you learn not just about love but about the art world too. Something that I must admit has alluded me for my entire life and Teri made me feel a little closer to it. 

There is nothing bad that I can say about this book because it was executed well and it had a great flow that so few writers can keep while teaching. That is part of the reason that Teri Wilson is as talented as she is. 

All in all, I can't recommend this book enough. I know that a lot of you out there will feel the same way when they pick up their copy of this book. Do it fast because this is about to be another Hallmark smash hit film. Something that no one should miss.

Crown of Midnight By Sarah J Mass - Review

Hello All,

We are into the second book of the five book series. I have to say that I wasn't sure I was going to read the second one but I took a chance. My thoughts are below. I hope that you will find my thoughts helpful as you decide upon whether or not to give this book a try,

Crown of Midnight 

Eighteen-year-old Celaena Sardothien is bold, daring and beautiful – the perfect seductress and the greatest assassin her world has ever known. But though she won the King's contest and became his champion, Celaena has been granted neither her liberty nor the freedom to follow her heart. The slavery of the suffocating salt mines of Endovier that scarred her past is nothing compared to a life bound to her darkest enemy, a king whose rule is so dark and evil it is near impossible to defy. Celaena faces a choice that is tearing her heart to pieces: kill in cold blood for a man she hates, or risk sentencing those she loves to death. Celaena must decide what she will fight for: survival, love or the future of a kingdom. Because an assassin cannot have it all . . . And trying to may just destroy her. 

Love or loathe Celaena, she will slice open your heart with her dagger and leave you bleeding long after the last page of this New York Times bestselling sequel, in what is undeniably THE hottest new fantasy series.

5/5 Stars - Review

From the start this book just feels like the author has settled into the series and is prepared to tell it to you all. She offers snippets of book one but she has described more of this book than she had done in before. So its more gore and its not for the weak of the heart. There is still something there to offer those who love romance. We see a romance take seed, grow and bloom. It gets ripped from the ground before it has a chance to go anywhere else. I think that was the best sort of rollercoaster ride for the readers of this series. 

We see Celaena go through her biggest loss yet and how she can't seem to drag herself back from the edge. Dorian is there to help her and he is going to need her just as much as she needs him. Their distance is going to be put behind them as things change for the pair again. This was a page turner with some moments that I had to step away as it was gross, however that added to the world that Sarah J Mass is building with these books. She did a really good job. 

I do recommend it to those who are looking for a thrill in their young adult reads.

Throne of Glass By Sarah J Mass Review.

Hello all, 
Today we are diving back into the Fantasy world with the book called "Throne of Glass." Book 1 of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Mass. 
Blurb:
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly. Destined for greatness.
In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake. She got caught.
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament - fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin's heart be melted?

5/5 Stars:
Review

The plot was well thought out and felt different. I liked how Celaena was different from the other ass-kicking female hero's. I liked how Sarah J Mass went about putting together the assassin and her group of friends. Having real threats to her life and those around her. I would have liked more detail in the tests as I think it would make the book completely perfect. 

Sarah J Mass put together a world that was worthwhile getting to know and having the fear that magic was going to spring forth and create mayhem added to how much I ended up liking the book. I enjoyed how Celaena reads just as much as we do and helped me at least to relate to her. She is very cool and the dog part really did melt my heart. 


I can't recommend this book enough.

With nine stories - five of which have never before been published - and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer's novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in WonderlandStars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.

5/5 Stars
Review:

This was a great selection of stories that she put together for this book and it deserves the high praise it has received on Amazon and Goodreads alike. I loved them all myself except for Mech0.9 I did get confused in some parts of that story and it didn't feel like it belonged to the overall selection. It was the only one that I didn't enjoy. This selection helps to set a happy outlook on the series as you place them on the shelf to be loved and cherished.

Unite Me (Shatter Me #4) Tahereh Mafi - Review

Hello all, 

I'm so excited to be reading the short stories that Tahereh Mafi has written. Such a talent has opened my eyes to other writing styles. 


Unite Me (Shatter Me #4) 
Tahereh Mafi

Perfect for fans of Tahereh Mafi's New York Times bestselling Shatter Me trilogy, this book collects her two companion novellas, Fracture Me and Destroy Me, in print for the first time ever. It also features an exclusive look into Juliette's journal and a preview of Ignite Me, the hotly anticipated final novel of the series.
Destroy Me tells the events between Shatter Me and Unravel Me from Warner's point of view. Even though Juliette shot him in order to escape, Warner can't stop thinking about her--and he'll do anything to get her back. But when the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment arrives, he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner cannot allow.
Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective and bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. As the Omega Point rebels prepare to fight the Sector 45 soldiers, Adam's more focused on the safety of Juliette, Kenji, and his brother. The Reestablishment will do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam cares about.
The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent and The Hunger Games. This captivating story, which combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, was praised as "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love" by Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

5/5 Review

Fracture Me- A wonderful point of view that gives us a different look. Aaron has just a shameful attitude and to see how he deals with his father is an eye opener. I was sucked into this short story and I love how Juliette just makes this book great. I have to say that I would have loved more of Warner's story. I can't wait to see if she will do a spin off. 

Destroy Me- Seeing things through Adam's eyes was amazing. To know that he was having those feelings while trying to remain composed during the missions that are in Ingite Me made me feel more connected to Adam than I already was. I could see the reason he was aggressive in the final book and how he seemed to become enraged over the slightest thing. 

Juliette's Journal- That was a very interesting read and would love to have more to digest and then I think I would be able to understand the leading female. I think that it was a great start that would let us look at her in a much more detailed light and made our connection to her even stronger. I think these short stories fanned the flames of readers of these books hearts. I don't think am alone when I hope for more books like this.

Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi

Hello All,

So I thought that I was on the last book of this series then I found the short stories that go with it and I will be doing those too. I'm glad that the book clubs I read with suggested these.

Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) By Tahereh Mafi

The heart-stopping third installment in the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City, called -a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.-
With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn't know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won't keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that's not all he wants with her.
The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as -a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks.-


5/5 stars 
Review

My heart raced through this book and I didn't want to put it down as there was a wonder of whether she was going to live or die. Just as quickly as you get over that obstacle then you find yourself wondering which of the two that she will be with. There are some iffy moments that I would let a young teenager read for there a very thin line between Young Adult and Erotica in this book. 

The action was well done and the plot holes are easy to miss if your not looking for them. It was a great ending to the saga and I didn't hope for more than what Tahereh Mafi gave me. If there is another book in this series then I'm going to be excited to get it. I hope that she will consider picking up the book series in the near future. 

Perfect ending to the Dystopian themed war and end of the world style book.

Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) By Tahereh Mafi

Hello all,

During my tense period of book releases, I managed to squeeze in the most important thing for any author. The chance to read. I hope that you are going to like what I have to say about "Unravel Me".  I'm about to start the last book in the series and I'm already getting knots in my stomach about how it will end.

Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) 
By Tahereh Mafi

The New York Times bestselling sequel to the groundbreaking dystopian novel Shatter Me! Kami Garcia, coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures series, says Unravel Me is "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense. I dare you to stop reading."
Juliette is still haunted by her deadly touch. But now that she has teamed up with other rebels with powers of their own, she'll be able to fight back against The Reestablishment to save her broken world. With the help of these new allies, she'll also finally learn the secret behind Adam's--and Warner's--immunity to her killer skin.
Unravel Me is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, raves: "A thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love, the Shatter Me series is a must-read for fans of dystopian young-adult literature--or any literature!"


4/5 stars - Review

Despite the fact that I read the first one I found myself getting thrown out of the book on several occasions. It's a style I think you either find easy or you struggle with completely. I'm sort of in the middle when it comes to that. It lost a star with how close it came to become an adult book with the descriptions between her and the boy she loves. I just felt like it was maybe too much and could easily send the wrong ideas. 


It was a great story in regards to the way that at long last Juliette grows from being that scared traumatised girl from the cell she was into the woman with strength and power. The love triangle makes the books interesting. There is so many twists in the book it does keep you interested and hanging off the page. The diary entry that took me a long time to figure out was something that threw me out of this book as well. This is a great dystopian book and I think it could be up there with the iikes of Divergence.
