Summary (Goodreads)
In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.

Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online by “Alex.” Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new arch-nemesis. But life is whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever-it-is she’s starting to feel for Porter.

And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.
 


Review:

I fell in love with Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett. Last year I read her book: The Anatomical Shape of a Heart, which was also amazing because I finished that one in a day as well. I was captivated with the story, writing and the characters. The concept of a You've Got Mail was brilliant along with the setting in beautiful California. You will be smiling the entire novel!

We meet Bailey (Mink), who has been communicating with a witty film geek just like herself who is known as Alex and lives in the city as her dad. She then moves there and lands her a job at a local tourist museum and you get to meet the hot Porter Roth! I loved him so much! There was so much banter between them that you were already rooting for them to get together! He was so swoony that you will even fall in love with him! The entire book was addicting from the story line, secrets, heartbreaks and all the laughs.

 I am already looking forward to Jenn's next book. If you haven't read any of her books go pick them up immediately! Also pre-order this great book or add it to your TBR lists. Plus it will help you get out of a reading slump and have you smiling from beginning to end.

Cora Carmack- ANNOUNCEMENT!!

AllClosedOff_AnnouncementBanner    


From New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack, comes the highly anticipated fourth standalone title in her Rusk University Series, ALL CLOSED OFF! A passionate story and journey, get ready to be mesmerized with Stella’s story! ALL CLOSED OFF is coming your way May 1, 2017!

ABOUT ALL CLOSED OFF (Releasing May 1, 2017):

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.
But none of that matters because she’s just fine.
For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.
When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.
Vulnerable.

The Struggle (Titans #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: The Struggle (Titans #3)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pages: 370 (TBD)
Genre: New Adult/Mythology/Paranormal
Release Date: March 20, 2017
Buy: Amazon| Kobo|
(ARC was received for honest review by the author)

Summary: (Goodreads)
A bloody path has been chosen… 

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs. 

The Great War fought by the few is coming… 

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people. 

In the end, the sun will fall… 

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same. 

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…


Review:  

As a huge JLA fan, it never seizes to amaze me how great her books are. Once I start her books I could not put them down! The Struggle has to be one of my favorite books in Seth's story because we get to know more about his past as well as what is going to happen with his fate. Once you start you will not be able to put it down. Being back into the world of the Gods and Greek mythology you get a better understanding of our favorite characters and what revelations are to come.

What brings me always back to this series is the characters. I've always had a soft spot for Seth and this series is not different because his relationship with Josie is currently up and down. He thinks he is not good enough for her. I love that he is thinking of others before himself and has learned how important it is to sacrifice what is the most important in his life. Josie is one of those things. Seth will protect her at any costs. He has come a long way from the boy in Half-Blood.

I loved Josie in The Struggle! She is definitely one character who has gone through a lot and is continually growing throughout this series as well as many struggles and overcoming them with lots of strength. She is for sure the perfect person to be matched with Seth because she can stand up for herself. Can't wait to see what is going to happen next in the series! If you haven't picked up this series, I recommend you order them immediately because you will be hooked! I loved seeing some of my favorite characters like Alex, Aiden and the rest of the crew!

If you haven't the series go get them immediately!

5/5

Waiting on Wednesday: The Secret History of Us by Jessi Kirby

Title: The Secret History of Us 
Author: Jessi Kirby
Pages: 288
Genre: Contemporary YA
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: August 1, 2017

Summary: (Goodreads)

Gorgeously written and emotionally charged, The Secret History of Us explores the difficult journey of a teenage girl who must piece her life together after losing her memory in a near-fatal accident.

When Olivia awakes in a hospital bed following a car accident that almost took her life, she can’t remember the details about how she got there. She figures the fog is just a symptom of being in a week-long coma, but as time goes on, she realizes she’s lost more than just the last several days of her life—she’s lost her memory of the last four years. Gone is any recollection of starting or graduating high school; the prom; or her steady boyfriend Matt. Trying to figure out who she is feels impossible when everyone keeps telling her who she was. 

As Liv tries to block out what her family and friends say about who she used to be, the one person she hasn’t heard enough from is Walker, the guy who saved her the night her car was knocked off that bridge into the bay below. Walker is the hardened boy who’s been keeping his distance—and the only person Olivia inexplicably feels herself with. With her feelings growing for Walker, tensions rising with Matt, and secrets she can’t help but feel are being kept from her, Olivia must find her place in a life she doesn’t remember living.
