Shameless by Lex Martin NEW RELEASE

Shameless
Goodreads   Amazon   Twitter    Website

Brady…

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. 

Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart. 

I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things. 

Katherine…

When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me. 

What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love. 
I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

REVIEW AHEAD!

Book vs TV - ShadowHunters




Those of us who love books (hi guys!) know there's no bigger wish than to finally have our favourite characters adapted to the big screen, or in this case the small screen.

Having previously failed as a movie with a cast that I personally very much appreciated, I was interested to see the new actors that would be introduced as the characters we all know. The first thing that I noticed about the cast was the when casting for canonically white roles, they weren't afraid to hire POC and not comment on the changes. The only cast members that I knew were Dom Sherwood from Vampire Academy and The Cut, Kat McNamara from Happyland and Isaiah Mustafa as the Old Spice Guy. As such, I was looking forward to seeing how the cast were going to play off of each other - it's entirely possible to pass chemistry tests and still not have it pass off on the screen, especially when dealing with previously established characters who already had TWO interpretations.

I had to say, I wasn't particularly looking forward to it as I'm not really a fan of the first three books and the process of Clary getting thrust into this world always suspends belief when being visually adapted, this series was no exception. Whilst I would say the first episode was a generous 5, I think by the final episode of season 1 (come back to me!) it was at least an 8/10.

Below I'm just going to list what I really enjoyed about the series whilst also discussing the changes made from the books. I just would like to state that any changes I didn't like are no reflection on the actors themselves, I would say the cast is pretty solid and more interestingly from social media and cons, they seem pretty cool and genuinely friendly with each other. As someone who watches a lot of TV I can say that's one of the best things for the show as well as fun for the fans to watch. 

As a fan of YA adaptations, I knew I had to support this so that hopefully more can occur, especially in the medium of TV,  and I'm glad I did.

Love Me Never by Sara Wolf

Love Me Never
Goodreads   Amazon   Twitter    Website


Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.

All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter's never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he's never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.

Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.
The game board: East Summit High.
The reward: Something neither of them expected.


Nothing could have prepared me for this wonderful book. Having previously been independently published, the rights to Love Me Never (previously Lovely Vicious) have been acquired and is now being republished. I'm very glad for this because sadly, I don't think I would have found out about this amazing book otherwise.

Love Me Never introduces us to Isis Blake who, as you now know, hasn't fallen in love since she was 85 pounds heavier and in a different town. We learn that whoever she was last in love with nearly completely broke her and she's absolutely not going to make the same mistake again.

So obviously she meets the perfect person to potentially change her mind - Jack Hunter. Jack is honestly such an amusing character but it's worth noting that most of that is because he plays off Isis so well, Isis is prone to accidentally speaking out loud as well as some of the best insults I've had the pleasure of reading for a while. Their back and forth is probably one of the best I've read from an antagonistic relationship. 

The book has three main plots I would say: Jack's past, Isis and her mother's past and the present and they're all so well developed and intriguing. The elements of mystery in this book are so well done and I truly found it hard to put down (spoiler alert: I didn't and I finished this at 5am). The supporting characters are also given the opportunity to grow over the course of the book and that's wonderful for books to do especially as not a lot of people tend to love the main characters of any series anymore, probably because there's so much that isn't said about the supporting characters which is not the case in this book.

WARNING: THIS BOOK ENDS ON A MASSIVE CLIFFHANGER

I would say this book is a pleasant surprise, the only introduction needed is the blurb.

Recommend to: YA fans, fans of mysteries

Rating: 5 stars

Book of Lies by Teri Terry - NEW RELEASE + REVIEW


Book of Lies


Goodreads   Amazon   Twitter    Website

They are trapped, frozen. Waiting. Straining against the wood that holds them. The unwary catch a glimpse now and then - feel their desperate hunger, see a glint of red eyes - and scurry out of the shadows of the wood, back to the light.
She's coming; it will be soon.
They will run free on the moors again. The Hunt will return. 
And the ground will run with blood.

An ancient curse placed on a family of witches foretells that twins will be born - one good, one evil; and one will destroy the other. But who can be trusted when no one is as they seem?
