Tousle Me: A New Adult Parody by Lucy V. Morgan
Publication date: December 13th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Synopsis:

He’s exquisitely hot. Exquisitely tousled. Exquisitely screwed in the head.
Cammibelle Hicks just wants to survive her first year of college. Desperate to forget her troubled past, she throws herself into her degree and book review blog. So what if her life is one long tumblr page of grumpy cat GIFs? She doesn’t need to get out more, and she definitely doesn’t need a man.
Hunter von Styles approaches life like he’s spoiling for a fight: with a tempting scowl. A cage-fighting, ex-rocker billionaire, it’s unclear why Hunter’s at college. Frankly, it makes no sense. Then Cammie falls into him—literally—at a party, and he’s obsessed. He needs her more than a moist towelette at a barbecue.
Though Cammie’s friends warn her against Hunter, she can’t resist his charms; especially not when he buys her shoes. And GoodReads. And a unicorn. But when her handsome best fr…

First of all, my weaknesses? Both were KIND of present in this book. One more than the other. The book tittle? It wasn't as if it was literally inside the book but it represents exactly what the whole book is about, the theme and most of the settings so I'll go with a big round 100% in love with the book tittle. The book cover? It somehow is a sort of scene in the book but at the same time it isn't... But I do love how it portrays the whole story in one sole picture so I'm going with heck yeah!  Both my weaknesses!! I love love love the book cover AND the tittle plus, please take a second or a day whichever suits you best, to admire the male model on the cover *O*
My Thoughts? Rachel, oh dear dear Rachel, where to begin? Do I tell people h…

-Review- Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Goodreads shortie:
She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.





GoodreadsAmazonThe Book Depository  Should ----a word of anguish rather than consolation.
Well there goes my aversion to reading books about zombies.
I’ve got to admit that while I might have read a bit of zombies here and there on some books I’ve never really read a book with a story based completely on zombies and I’m so glad this book was the turning point for me.
Alice in Zombieland is like nothing I’ve ever read before. I’ve never even read the original book in which this one was based on so I was all clear and fresh to give this book a go.
I don’t even know where to start.
-"Don't worry. You're part of my world now. I'll teach you how to survive it."-
The great characters that made this book what it is? The incredibly gorgeous Cole? The traumatizing story plot? The intriguing bunny cloud? The gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous cover? The twists and turns that made the …

-Book Blast + Giveaway- Sisters In White by Melissa Foster

Image
Danica and Kaylie Snow are about to celebrate the biggest day of their lives—their double wedding—on an island in the Bahamas. But no wedding is complete without a little family drama. The two sisters aren’t ready to face the father they haven’t seen since he divorced their mother and moved away to marry his mistress, and live with Lacy, the half sister they’ve never met.
While Danica has exchanged letters and phone calls with Lacy, Kaylie has fervently tried to pretend she doesn’t exist. Lacy is sweet, fun, and nearly a mirror image of Kaylie. To make matters worse, not only is Lacy looking forward to meeting her sisters, but she idolizes them, too. As the countdown to the wedding date ticks on, their parents are playing a devious game of revenge, and there’s a storm brewing over the island, threatening to cancel their perfect wedding. The sisters are about to find out if the bond of sisterhood really trumps all.

Yet ANOTHER Fiktshun Post -Happy 3rd Blogoversary!-

Image
You would think I'd have learned my lesson by now.


I should have stopped stalking her such a long time ago, nope, not stop following her but just simply and plainly stop stalking her. I still think that there will come a time when she'll come outright and tell me to please (because she's really polite and everything) stop with the stalking, the long comments, the random tweets, the out-of-the-blue tags on Facebook... And.So.On...
She'd be gracious about it but she'd still tell me to just stop it.

I'm still waiting for that day to come.

And I've tried you guys! I've tried a LOT to stop stalking her as much as I do but I simply can't.
If you don't believe me, let me show you some evidence...

Exhibit 1
When she turned her first year! I wrote this post.

Exhibit 2
When she made me cry like I had lost a limb or something I think I even made a video!

Exhibit 3
When I stumbled upon her book touring site I wrote down this post.

Exhibit 4
When I saw she h…

My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all.

My Thoughts(I'd recommend readers from the age of 15 and up)
I like to think I've always been good at telling people how a certain book, story, plot, character, etc... I've read about affects me in some ways or others...
Whenever I write a review is much more than a review for me, is like a mini story of what I went through when reading said book.

And in a way I think I've pulled it off so far. The stories and books that I've loved are and forever will be in my heart and mind, always there coming to mind now and then, appearing in my dreams some nights and well... You know, the usual stuff.

I've been moved and affected by so many books in my life I've lost count. Every book that I love leaves a piece of it and the author in my soul and I'll carry that with me forever.

But never in all my life, in …
