Book Review Day:

There’s nothing like finding out you have breast cancer to make you take a second look at your life. Along with the diagnosis, Ariana finds a new reason to live when she meets tattoo artist Blaine Bennett. But Blaine’s reaction when she informs him of the pending double mastectomy isn’t what she expected. Can two people who so obviously belong together deal with the outside forces keeping them apart? 

There is so much heart wrenching pain and passion that it truly is an awesome read. Dealing with caner, a cheating husband, and new feelings for a stranger can be a lot for anyone. Ariana does it in a beautiful way. She know this disease is coming for her, it took her mom and sister. Finally getting the diagnosis of breast cancer set new life to the things she needed to do. Bettering herself while healing for surgery seems flawless for Ariana and I just enjoyed reading this book. PLEASE read if you get the chance! Well worth it!

Book Review Day: Zero

For as long as he can remember, Alan Price has been fighting a losing battle against bullying and depression. When one final attempt at a normal life goes horribly wrong, Alan prepares himself for the ultimate surrender. But he'll soon discover that only by looking death in the face, will he ever begin to live.

Wow! While the constant 3rd person really made this hard to read, what I could pull out as a storyline was a-freakin-mazing. As a sufferer of depression, I know what its like to be desperate for happiness. And when you can get around the constant repeating of names and words, you find the same struggle in Alan. This was a super quick read. I finished in one day. Check it out, it might be the book for you.

Book Review Day: Beautiful Stranger

Patrick Connolly is about to get the one thing he has always wanted…kinda.

Wall have that one thing—that one thing we wish for on every first star of the night. Wealth. Fame. Love. For geeky artist Patrick Connolly, it is the attention of his beautiful and seemingly unattainable classmate Nualla Galathea. There’s just one problem—he’s got less than a snowball’s chance in hell, and that’s being generous.

However, when a heated argument erupts in the halls of Bayside Academy forcing Patrick and Nualla’s paths to collide, Nualla surprisingly jumps at the opportunity to be his date. Patrick may think his wish has just come true, but this gentle boy will need more than artistic talent to combat the deadly secrets lurking behind his dream girl’s veil of normality. Like the fact that she isn’t even human

A quick little read, I enjoyed the fast pace set by the author. The action had my attention from the beginning, holding me in with the colorful descriptions of the characters. However, there were a lot of repeated statements and words that felt like they existed only to push the page number higher. Though this wasn't a long book at all, I still found things to enjoy about it. You will have your mouth hanging open by the end, like, WTF? I like that in my books!
