This book was written differently than what I’m used to. It was hard to get into at first because of it. However, the social issues in this book made it worth the read. Expectations, stereotypes, putting people down because of what they look on the outside, seeing them for who they are on the inside.
Linc was a really great character. There were so many elements to him. He didn’t always say the right things, but that’s human nature. In the end, he made this book. His and Alexis’s relationship development felt more real than what I read in most books. There was a lot of work moving forward, no easy love-at-first sight. Alexis was plagued by her own self-doubt for that.
Again, the social issues made this book worth the read. It’s eye-opening.
Alexandria Sure is from Michigan and adores her supportive family, her two rescue pups, and her mighty Spartans.

(Thanks, Biggby!)

“I know what I must be afraid of” she answers, looking at me and biting her lower lip. “And what I must be careful about.”
I like the way she’s looking at me while she whispers those words with her persuasive voice. “What must you be careful about, Eleonor?” I ask, putting myself comfortably on the couch.
She looks at my arm on the backrest and sighs deeply, putting her head back. “You, Asher Keaston” she answers, sincerely.
I’m quite surprised, I didn’t expect it. Eleonor seems to be her old self, but in reality, something has changed over the years. She has grown up, she has become stronger, she’s an independent adult now, and I don’t think she’ll let anyone step on her easily. “Am I dangerous?”
She crosses her arms and makes herself comfortable, tickling my arm with her long hair. “You don’t let anyone get to know you, no one can tarnish you.”
Damn it… coming from her, it sounds like the most horrible thing in the world, but I don’t get discouraged. There’s no need to, and I don’t want to, so I get closer to her and pretend that her words didn’t touch me at all. “You can’t control me or you can’t control what you feel when you are with me?”
She opens her eyes wide and moves on the couch, nervously. She blinks and curls up on the couch. “You’ve got the bad habit of embarrassing people.”
“I don’t embarrass them, I just tell them the truth.”

The Boyfriend Whisperer
I crank up Mumford & Sons on my iPod and pull up the Boyfriend Whisperer Enterprises files on my tablet. With Valentine’s ten days away, I need to plot out some big moves for my clients.
I start with Jolene. I watched Brendon staring at her this afternoon during the pep rally. He’s falling hard. No need to play it subtle. He likes spicy food, so Red Hots are an obvious choice, in a heart-shaped tin. What should the card say? Something super flirty. “Let’s heat it up on Valentine’s.” No … “spice it up.” I jot that down and move on to my next client.
Just as I’m picking out a sweet YouTube link I want her to send her BF-to-be, Coach Reilly pulls my earbud out and scares me half to death.
“Malloy! I’m talking to you. What are you working on?”
I slam my tablet shut. “What? Homework. Sorry. What do you need?”
She shoves my backpack to the floor and plops down beside me. “Let’s talk about tomorrow. We’re expecting scouts from all over. Rumor has it someone from U Conn might even turn up.”
She pauses as if to gauge my reaction, so I force a smile. “U Conn? Wow. That’s great.”
She leans in. “There’ll be a lot of buzz in that arena. Parents, coaches, other players. They’ll all be talking about the scouts and about you and your future. Here’s the thing: You need to ignore them.”
“Exactly. You have one job tomorrow, and that’s to play the best game Alexis Malloy knows how to play. Run, pass, shoot, rebound. That’s it. The rest is static. Ignore the static.”
“Got it. Static.”
Coach furrows her brow. “You nervous?”
“Maybe a little.”
She pats my arm as she stands. “A little nervousness is good. You’ve got this, Malloy. You can do it.”
I smile and slump back into my seat. The fact is, I’m not at all nervous. I only said that so she wouldn’t launch into a lecture about being too cocky. She’s forever vacillating between warning me not to be too nervous and not to be too cocky, when in reality, I’m neither. The truth is, when it comes to college scouts, I just wish they’d leave me alone.
Wicked Woods Omnibus Books 1-6
by Kailin Gow
Publication date: February 28th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Horror, Young Adult
The Wicked Woods Omnibus contains 6 Full-length novels in the Wicked Woods Series.
It started when Briony had to move to Wicked Woods, Massachusetts to live with her Great Aunt Sophie after her family disappears on vacation. The woods at the edge of Aunt Sophie’s inn is filled with secrets and inhabitants both seductive and deadly. Among them is a beautiful boy name Fallon who saves her one night in the woods. As Briony gets closer to Fallon, she learns he has a secret, as do most of the residents of Wicked Wood.
I can’t believe I read all six books without taking a break from them! I usually don’t like doing that, needing a cleanser before continuing a series. However, there were so many little cliffhangers that I was drawn in.
Briony was a strong female character. She was definitely written to inspire young women. She grew a lot throughout the books. She was loyal, sympathetic, caring, yet fierce. She started out naïve and ignorant to things around her, but she quickly grew into a commanding figure who deserved respect.
I will say that the story arcs bothered me—the whole build up to the end. It got pretty redundant throughout each book. Not my favorite style. As these are for young adult, though, it works. It’s traditional.
Another thing that bothered me was the love triangle. In the first two to three books, Briony doesn’t even hesitate to kiss and be in a relationship with two boys. There are no thoughts of regret or wrongness in that. Almost like it was a reverse harem, when it was not. It made her seem shallow. As the books continued, she finally started to think about how wrong it was. Still, both relationships didn’t seem involved. It was like an afterthought thrown into the story.
Overall, the books are amazing for young readers. There is a lot of action and adventure. A fight between good and evil, and seeing in shades of grey.
Kailin Gow loves things that are edgy, cool, bright, exciting, hopeful, glittery, and jaw-droppingly awe-inspiring. She loves writing, reading, and filming stories about people whose journeys take them beyond their boundaries – physically, psychologically, intellectually, and emotionally to arrive a point and a place of inspiration and hope. Her works have been recognized by the leaders in the industry in book publishing and entertainment to be “innovative” and “disruptive”, earning her awards from ALA, The IBPA, and festivals.
Title: Angry Annie
Author: Dawn L. Chiletz
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Humorous
Release Date: July 12, 2018
1. Infiltrate the life of the internet troll, Annie McClintonuck, who wrote a nasty review for her sister’s bakery before it even opened.
2. Write an article exposing Annie for a fraud, thereby catapulting Joslyn's stalled career from fact-checker to journalist.
3. Flirt with, but don’t fall for, said troll's hot, seemingly shy, incredibly edible next door neighbor, Rhode Bennett.
4. Try not to let one week change her life.
Not all trolls are cute and fuzzy but some lemons are gold in disguise.
STOP. Don’t waste your time going any further. This book sucks like a plunger in a toilet bowl. I don’t know what to say about this woman’s lack of talent. I’d like to call her an author, but just because you put a bunch of words on paper doesn’t make you a writer. Heck, my cousin’s five-year-old granddaughter wrote a three-sentence story about pizza that’s better than this. Dawn . . . what kind of ’70s hippie name is that, anyway? People name their kid Dawn when they’re too lazy to think of a real name. I’ve always preferred dusk to Dawn and she’s reminded me why. Go watch TV instead. Save your money. You’re welcome.
Dawn L. Chiletz resides in Illinois with her two boys and three dogs. Her love of reading began at a young age and continued into adulthood. Armed with a dream from the night before, she sat down at her laptop in the summer of 2014 and started the words to her first book, The Contest. She’s been writing ever since. When she’s not binge reading or writing you can most likely find her on social media avoiding laundry.
