Her Hollywood Boyfriend by K.R. Grace

Her Hollywood Boyfriend by K.R. Grace

My Rating: ★★★☆☆

Grab a copy on Amazon!

Genre: Fiction, Romance, YA
Published on:  May 4th 2018
Pages: — (Kindle Edition)

Her Hollywood Boyfriend was a book I read last year around November, when I could slip a portion of my time reading. I thought it would be exciting to read a contemporary since I’ve been soaked in reading fantasy-based novels. A bit of normalcy or a story centered on real life sounded nice and it works well when a change in genre is needed to balance things out. Continue reading “Her Hollywood Boyfriend by K.R. Grace”

Game of Secrets by Kim Foster is such an interesting title and matched with that attractive cover, I thought, “Wow, this looks like a good book!” And so I went my way and read it. And it isn’t what I expected it would be.

The story unfolds through the eyes of Felicity Cole, a mere human. But her seven-year-old brother is a Tainted.

The Tainted. They are a plague to society. Having the ability to defy the laws of matter, these people are dangerous and needs to be completely annihilated. Anyone manifesting signs beyond human strength is captured by the Huntsmen, taking them away from the eyes of society. Not even the rats living in the gutters would dare bat an eye at them.

Driven by the responsibility to shield him from prodding eyes around them, Felicity must keep her guards up at all times to keep her brother safe. But when an encounter with a stranger turns out into a bloody mess, Felicity reveals something she didn’t even know about herself.

**I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

Imagine waking up at the bottom of an enclosed space several feet below the earth, in the middle of the night. No light, no idea how that happened, no ladder to get yourself out of there.

Just you. And darkness. And probably an unknown creepy crawly. And some bones of a dead something. HOW DO YOU DO?? I’d panic. I’m a claustrophobic person and it truly TRULY sucks to be in one. Continue reading “Blood Will Out by Jo Treggiari”

**I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

First of all, I’m a Cinderella-story fanatic. Second of all, I love retellings. So putting them together is BIG for me. Ironically, Geekerella didn’t click well with me, so my feeling is pretty much so-so. I’ve never felt so confused in my life. Everyone (and by this, I mean my bookish friends in and outside social media) is in love with this book. I’m feeling like a villain right now. Hmmmmm. After a debate with myself, I’ve come to share my unpopular opinion.

I really want to understand why people in a relationship cheats and this book promised me an explanation of why a person does it. It didn’t deliver the reason to me. Well, maybe it did, but here’s a one word of how I understood it: lust. Continue reading “In Between by M.A. Fernandez”
