Waiting On Wednesday: Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)

Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

If you want more, you have to give less.

That’s the secret to dating in high school. By giving as little as they expect to get in return, seventeen-year-old Aubrey Housing and her three best friends have made it to the second semester of their senior year heartbreak-free. And it’s all thanks to a few simple rules: don’t commit, don’t be needy, and don’t give away your heart.

So when smoking-hot Nathan Diggs transfers to Lincoln High, it shouldn’t be a big deal. At least that’s what Aubrey tells herself. But Nathan’s new-boy charm, his kindness, and his disarming honesty throw Aubrey off her game and put her in danger of breaking the most important rule of all: Don’t fall in love.


I love the concept of this book. No matter young or old there is always that fear of being the one who loves more in the relationship, the one who will suffer the most if something goes wrong. So it's nice to read about someone else having the same fears than us. It should be interesting.

Review: Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Title: Magnolia
Author: Kristi Cook
Expected publication: August 5th 2014 by Simon & Schuster
Genre: YA Contemporary
Goodreads | Amazon | Buy The Book Now at The Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide

Magnolia is about two kids growing up in the South. Their moms are best friends and have always wanted to pair the two of them together. Naturally, Jemma and Ryder hate that idea and have hated each other their whole lives. I thought that had potential to be hilarious and I was so excited to dig in.
Jemma and Ryder are both good looking and popular and if it weren’t for the huge hurricane and some health problems I’d say their lives are perfect, which makes it hard to care for them and their developing romance. But I have to say that it was a very cute love story and it really made sense they would be a couple, I’m glad they realized it too because I kept wishing they’d abandon the nonsense and just kiss already. The story is from Jemma’s point of view and she seemed to me kind of too childish, I can’t even tell how many times she cried and that annoyed me, sometimes I didn’t even knew why she was crying she just did it.  A lot.
The subplot about the hurricane was good. I have always been crazy about meteorology and have spent a fair amount of hours watching Discovery Channel’s shows about storms, so I enjoyed reading about it through Jemma’s eyes. And learning what happened to the town and everyone’s homes was a bit heart-breaking; Hurricane Katrina is fresh in my mind too.

I really liked reading about her relationship with her sister, and was really invested in her medical problems but to be honest I felt like it was underdeveloped. I wanted to know more about how she was doing from her words and not just how Jemma thought she was doing but at the end they didn’t communicate much and I missed their relationship. I also thought the thing with Patrick was not needed but that's just my opiniĆ³n.
I would say that I really liked this book because it was what I expected, a sweet southern romance with lots of country feel and some crazy weather action thrown in there too.

Waiting On Wednesday: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.


I've been on a New Adult roll lately so I had to feature one of the most popular NA authors: K.A. Tucker.
Now I've only read one book of hers but I realy really liked it, it was edgy and hot and mysterious and perfect for me. And I hope she'll hit it out of the park with this one too.

Waiting On Wednesday: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)

by colleen hoover
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken. Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

I've read a couple of books written by Ms. Hooverboard and I am convinced she has a gift to write very entertaining romances so I am already prepared to swoon with her next book, which seems to have everyone going crazy :)
