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 :)

Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

Title: Boomerang
Author: Noelle August
Published July 8th 2014 by William Morrow Paperbacks
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Goodreads | Amazon | Buy The Book Now at The Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide

I was really excited to start Boomerang. It's a new adult book yes, but the plot seemed to stay away from the over the top dramatics that surround your typical NA.

I liked it from the start. I liked the humoristic approach to the story and the dual POV allowed me to connect to both main characters and get to know them better. Mia and Ethan are the new Boomerang interns, both are competing to get a job there at the end of the year, and as you can see this calls for a cutthroat fight between them. But no. Since they had a fling the night before this all started, they had already realized they were good people so most of the time they were just fighting the attraction instead of each other. Which calls for a very steamy read ;)

Like I said, I also really enjoyed that the authors didn't take their characters too seriously and instead put them in situations that made the book funny and entertaining. Even the secondary characters were awesome. I especially liked Rhett, he always made me crack up. And the kids on Ethan's youth soccer team were adorable and hilarious too.

So I guess I would recommend this to you if you want to read a New Adult that stands aside of the others, or just if you want to have some fun because this is a perfect read for the summer.

Heart-Warming is vital.

Hello there.

So I know this is a book blog, and I am supposed to be writing about books, but I'm only human, you guys, and I cannot read at the rate other bloggers can. But I don't want to post twice (or most often) once a week and leave my blog so lonely.

Which led me to thinking about what should I write that speaks to my heart?

And I figured you don’t care about Kreb’s Cycle, how to diagnose fibromyalgia or the Apgar scale for newborns. So what’s something else that makes me feel happy? Well, that will be heart-warming YouTube videos.

You read that right. I am a sucker for a good story told in 3-minute video format. And even my mom is sick of me retelling everything I found on my free time, so I figured I had to find new victims and now we are here.


This time I want to share this little jewel.

It especially speaks to me because I love senior citizens. In my experience they are the sweetest, nicest, most considerate people ever. I’ve always considered specializing in Geriatrics because they appeal so much to me. And this is one of the best ideas in human history.

I also have a soft spot for people learning another language. I am bilingual, speak English and Spanish fluently, they were never a problem. But I tried learning German years ago and I am currently learning French and man, I am now realizing how difficult this can be, it opened my eyes. That’s why you should never make fun of someone who is trying. And these teens are much braver than me.

So really, this is magic. Watch for yourself.

Waiting On Wednesday: Beware The Wild by Natalie C. Parker

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
Beware The Wild by Natalie C. Parker
It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.  
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her. 
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.


Well... I am kind of cheating with this one.
Because I have already read this book...
BUT I still wanted to feature it before pub day because it is freaking fantastic! And the more buzz the better! ;)
