BP: First and foremost, when or how did you find out you wanted to become a writer?
I was six years old when I declared to my mother I would become a writer when I grew up. Then I stuck a picture on the cover of an exercise book and started writing a story about a blind boy. I absolutely loved reading and I wanted to be able to create my own stories.
BP: Now, I really have to tell you WOW, what an amazing book you wrote. I couldn’t keep away from it, even if it meant crying and suffering, but I was wondering how did you come up with the tittle FORBIDDEN? How did you now that was …

--Everything you need to know about love is already inside of you--

I have to say I liked this book really much but didn't looooved it as I would have liked.

I did love all the characters though didn't quite comprehend the whole secretive side that Colin had I still found the story compelling, A girl whose dad is obssessed with her safety, her wanting her freedom, a boy she used to hate, a lie for a life, and the best BFF she could have.

I'm more than happy to have read this book, is the first Laurens' book I read and it didn't disappoint.
Filled with everything a good story needs, you are left wondering what other thing can Ashlyn's dad come up with to keep her with him forever.

Feelings-
We all need our space, things happen and we have to get over them, love is inevitable, love can be a sick cruel thing, lies destroy as well as love, you're strong enough to overcome whatever you can.

Nothing can stop you to do what you want.

4/5 (again I felt it missed that littl…

~2 books review~ Leaving Paradise & Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles

LEAVING PARADISE


--"Are you following me?" she asks, but doesn't meet my gaze.
"Yeah," I say.
"Why?"
"Honestly?"
She looks at me, her eyebrows raised. I give her the only honest and true answer I have. "You're where I want to be."--

Oh My!!
Again...I was in this Simone Elkeles Marathon and couldn't stop until I read most of her books if not all!

Leaving Paradise was a really touching book, I love Elkeles' writing in this one as I did in her Perfect Chemitry books.
I started reading this book really?! without a single idea what it was about AND I looooooved it so much.

Starting with the name of the characters, Caleb(sigh) is one of my favorite male character names EVER so she hit home in there as for Maggie, let's just say I have a newly found sister whom I call that soI love it too.
The plot took me by surprise because I thought the main character along with the reason of the book's name wasn't the character I thought …
