Eye Candy

Book number 4 for this year!

Honestly, I picked up this book because I am obsessed with the show, and came to find that the book is completely different than the show. I could not put it down. Lindy is a young, beautiful, blonde who tries to meet men on the internet, calling herself Eye Candy. She meets three men through the dating site,and one more accidentally. She is just about to start weeding out when she begins receiving threats to killer if she stops seeing one of them. Her only option is to keep seeing all of them until she figures it out. The story will hold your attention, and you’ll never guess who the real killer is!

This book is very different from my usual read, but I enjoyed every moment of it. It has some moments where the reader may get confused as to who is speaking or where exactly things are happening, but they are easy to catch back on to.

Overall, a quick, captivating read for anyone who wants an adventure!

My True Love Gave to Me

treuThis book is a collection of winter/holiday themed short stories (generally about 30 pages each) by different young adult authors. I really enjoyed the stories, and whether you like all of them or not, you will definitely find at least one that you will enjoy.

Many of the stories are love stories, but a few are about family, friendship and other heartwarming themes. I enjoyed reading from different authors so that I could get to know other authors and decide if I want to read more for them.

We Were Liars

Omg, this book was both heartbreaking and beautiful. And I feel honored for having my heart broken by it.
Basically, Cadence Sinclair suffers from migraines and memory loss about something that happened on her family’s island when she was 15. She spends the majority of the book trying to understand what causes her migraines and what happened to her that she can’t remember. With the help of her cousins, whom she affectionately refers to as “The Liars,” she comes to discover what happened to her and to her family.

I finished this book in 2 evenings, I could not put it down. I read some reviews before reading it that criticized it for randomly switching to prose, but I thought that the sudden changes were helpful to understand the depth of Cadence’s feelings as well as slow the reader down to get a better understanding of what is happening in the story. I probably would not recommend it to those younger than 8th to 9th grade simply because of its use of language and traumatic events.

Overall, We Were Liars is a beautifully written book that will grab your attention and not let go.

My rating: 5/5 stars
