Something, Maybe

Something, Maybe
by Elizabeth Scott

Hannah Jackson James knows how to be invisible. She wants it that way. Her father made it big on his reality show Cowboy Dad. He is like Hugh Hefner. He has "his girls" and they live in a castle. Hannah's mother, Candy Madison, was once one of his girls.

Hannah doesn't want to be noticed by anyone. Except Josh, her crush. They work together, go to school together. She is sure that he is her soulmate. But then there is also Finn. Annoying, but sweet Finn. She hopes to get what she wants, but is what she wants what she needs?

Grade: A

I adore Elizabeth Scott. I'm never disappointed. I wasn't too sure about this one, because there were mixed reviews about it. But I really enjoyed it, and I read it super fast! :) Hannah was somewhat annoying, only because she couldn't see that Finn liked her! It was only obvious! I loved Finn. He was funny and sweet. I hated Josh. He seemed nice, but I thought he was a jerk from the start. Once again, Elizabeth Scott has written a wonderful story. I can't wait for her next one.

After the Moment

After the Moment
by Garret Freymann-Weyr

from cover flap:
Maia Morland is pretty, only not pretty-pretty. She's smart. She's brave. She's also a self-proclaimed train wreck.

Leigh Hunter is smart, popular, and extremely polite. He's also completely and forever in love with Maia Morland.

Their young love starts off like a romance novel--full of hope, strength, and passion. But life is not a romance novel and theirs will never become a true romance. For when Maia needs him the most, Leigh betrays both her trust and her love.

Grade: A-

This one was just too hard to make a synopsis by myself. After reading the synopsis, I really wanted to read this book. After starting it, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I really loved it though. It is always way more different for me reading from the male perspective. I really liked Leigh's character. And I thought Leigh and Maia were perfect for each other. It was really surprised by the ending, so that was really good. Overall, this novel was really enjoyable.

What Would Emma Do?

What Would Emma Do?
by Eileen Cook

Emma has sinned. She kissed her best friend's boyfriend. And she knows she's messed up. It doesn't help that she lives in a small, religious town where everybody knows everything. Emma is somewhat of an outsider anyway, since she is basically the only person in Wheaton that wants to leave. She's counting down the days until she gets to Chicago for college.

Now the girls in the school's popular crowd are mysteriously fainting. Emma is one of few that knows something that proves they are lying, but by fessing up, she would lose her track scholarship, and her ticket out of town.

Grade: B

This was a really interesting story. I enjoyed it a lot. It was a slow beginning, which I don't enjoy, but then it picked up the pace. I think I loved Emma the most. She seemed like me in many ways, by the things she said. When I started reading the book, I really had no idea where it was going. The ending was good, but it left me hanging. I like the title, but the cover doesn't make any sense to me. Overall, I found this to be enjoyable, but a one-time read.

Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale
by Cyn Balog

Morgan Sparks and her boyfriend Cam have been together forever, basically. She knows they are perfect for each other, and nothing can break them apart. Then Pip, Cam's "cousin" comes to stay with him, and Cam is suddenly different.

When Cam finally fesses up, he reveals to Morgan that he is a fairy. He and Pip were switched at birth, and Cam's biological brother died. Now Cam is the rightful heir as Fairy King.

Morgan wants nothing more than to be with Cam forever. But he is physically changing, and Morgan can't help but think maybe he should leave.

Grade: A+

I loved this book soooo much. I had no idea what to expect from it, since it is about a male fairy. I mean, how strange is that? The story was amazing. I loved every minute of reading it. I didn't want it to end, that's for sure. I really liked Morgan, but sometimes I just wanted to smack her to see that she couldn't decide what was best for Cam. I decided I like Pip better, mostly because of the way he spoke, and when I pictured him, he was just beautiful. :) I recommend this to everyone. It will not disappoint.
