What was I thinking?: Perfectly Dateless: A Universally Misunderstood Novel by Kristin Billerbeck

Format: Paperback | Pages: 257 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: Revell

"Perfectly Dateless: A Universally Misunderstood Novel" by Kristin Billerbeck ( I read this as a part of Smitten With Books ARC Tours)

What was I thinking? : Well, the cover was cute and the product description that Smitten With Books ARC Tours gave was cute too. I truthfully thought it was going to be a sweet/cute YA novel that I would breeze right through. Instead it was like I was beating my head up against a wall, just trying to finish the book at my normal reading pace, when all I wanted to do was stop. =0P

My Book Summary : Daisy's life is based around her family and her beliefs, with that being said she has a lot of rules that her parents want her to live by. For the most part, she understands their fears, but after seventeen years being the "perfect daughter", she wants to spread her wings a bit more. So, her goal for her last year of high school is to get a date and go to Prom!! It's more so she will be able to say that she went more then anything, but to help her find the right guy she has a 'Prom Journal' to help her out. Her biggest problem is that her parents won't allow her to date, so she not only has to find a guy, but she has to convince her parents that this will be for the best.

Before her senior year, she chooses five guys who she has set her sights on being her prom date. And once the school year beings some of them start getting crossed off her list quickly. But her main person that she wants to go to prom with is Chase. She has been in love with him since kindergarten and he has always been sweet to her. However, she doesn't really know how he feels about her and soon the most popular (and meanest to Daisy) is falling all over Chase looking like Daisy might not have a chance. To top it off a new guy (in her grade) Max has set his sights on her.

In addition, Daisy and her best friend make plans on becoming more noticeable, but in doing so some of the decisions that are made have some consequences that they didn't expect. Will Daisy finally get to have more control over her life, and be able to attend prom with a date? Or will her parents succeed in keeping choosing her life and future for her?

My Book Review : 1 out of 5 stars. I must be a part of the group of people who have misunderstood this book since I just didn't like it at all. I dunno, I mean the message of the book was good. And don't get me wrong I have read some Christian fiction books before and there were a few that I did like. But this one rubbed me the wrong way I guess. I really can't stand "preachy" books and Daisy's parents were very "preachy". However, I will admit that I liked how Daisy dealt with her parents, and she was a good main character. I'm not to sure about her best friend Claire. I really think Daisy should have found a new best friend, since while I thought Daisy's parents were "preachy", Claire pushed her views onto Daisy too and I have never liked that about people.

Side note -- I just have to say ... where can I order myself a Max?! ALSO -- she has a great "fairy godmother" of a boss, which after you read the explanation of him is kind of surprising. =0)

On the other hand, when going to Amazon.com there were quite a few positive reviews on the book -- so those of you who are fans of Christian books might like and appreciate this book more so then I did.

Book Teaser(s) :
Things are not looking from a male perspective. Gil had a girlfriend in high school, which makes me think I need a boyfriend, otherwise how is a guy going to know he has to ask me to the prom? I mean, without a boyfriend, I'm throwing caution to the wind, leaving it all to chance. And that is just not me. I don't take chances.
All I know is the closer prom gets, the more pathetic my life becomes and the tighter my parents' grip seems to be. I am desperately close to losing all sense of sanity. Maybe that's too dramatic for four days of effort, but the results? Ugh, the results!
~ within Chapter 6

Baby, I don't understand. Just why we can't be lovers. Things are getting out of hand. Tryin' to much, but baby we can win.

Pages: 210 | Release Date: March/April 2010

"The Unwritten Rule" by Elizabeth Scott -- Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don’t like your best friend’s boyfriend. So, this is what happens when you do...

Sarah has liked Ryan since 8th grade, but even though she told her best friend Brianna during that time, her friend never really believed her. Now at seventeen she still likes him, but she’s to shy to do anything about it. So, when Brianna and her attend an end-of-the-summer party she’s blown away by how much cuter Ryan has become over the summer. The only problem is Sarah isn’t the only one who notices, and by the end of the party, Brianna is all over Ryan. Then starts a series of miscommunications that end up with Brianna and Ryan together and Sarah left as the third wheel.

Almost two months she has put up with them kissing in front of her and doing all of the boyfriend/girlfriend things around her, yet Sarah has taken it in stride. But one night when Ryan drops her off at her house from a party alone, Sarah realizes that they have more in common then she expected, and that moment becomes wonderful and awful all at the same time. How can she do something like that to her best friend? Then life comes into play and Sarah finds that no matter how hard she tries to do the right thing someone is going to get hurt. The question is she will to sacrifice her dearest friend for the possibility of love? Or will she give up her happiness for her best friend?

4 out of 5 stars! This novel keeps your attention the whole way through. Definitely shows a side of girl friendships that you rarely see. Since we always read or watch in movies these girls who have it all with their little sidekick best friend, but you don't always hear about the best friend's version of what goes on between them or why she really puts up with what she does, and I think this book beautifully displays it.

However, I will admit that from the middle of the book on I was deeply pissed off at Brianna, and would have loved to bitch slap her myself. *hahaa* Especially since I have a hunch that Brianna new all along about Sarah's interests in Ryan, which is why she did what she did. But I could be wrong.

Sidenote :: I LOVED THE ENDING!!! It was sooo good!!

-- Leave a comment and tell me what do you thought about the novel. --

So let's find a way to bring back the days when our hearts were forever young

Everyone is searching for their own happily-ever-after whether they believe so or not .... "Casting Spells" by Barbara Bretton ... characters are just doing the same. However, Chloe is a half-human half-sorcerer who hasn't fallen into her powers at all ... but has a town who is in need of her guidance. As the town has been protected for over 300 years from outsiders prying eyes is finally falling into their own cracks and everyone is hoping she will make it all better. But when an outsider dies in their town .... a cop moves in to find out if it was an accident or a murder??? Will Chloe be able to get him out town without anything being noticeable??

The Books I'm Thankful For (so far) in 2020


It is Thanksgiving Day (the USA version of it at least) today! The tradition on my blog is to post a list of ALL the books I've read thus far this year that I've given my highest ratings to (5 out of 5 stars) today, which means I'm VERY Thankful for finding/reading them!

HOWEVER -- and it is a BIG HOWEVER -- this year has been hard for everyone. Myself included when it comes to promoting the books I have been reviewing. As if you look at my 2017 & 2018 Thankful Book Lists you'll see within my top write-up (like this one) that I say something along the lines of "because of life I have reviews but have yet to fully post them yet." This year is a LITTLE different because though ... that is still true ... my reviews ARE backlogged ... I had a catastrophe in March 2020 where I LOST ALL OF MY PREVIOUS REVIEWS. Yeah. If you want to hear ALL about it click here. BUT for 2020 specifically I was trying gather some "reading stats" for you, so out of those 19 books I know that 5 that I have no reviews for need to be on this list because I had rated them 5 out of 5 stars!

Yes this list is odd BUT other than the top three books within this list the others DO have reviews for them -- FULL REVIEWS COMING SOON -- so CHECK IT OUT! I DO RECOMMEND ALL OF THESE NOVELS!!

➡️ Also for the THIRD year running I have a We Are Thankful For Books collab video (at the bottom of this post) for you. In the video you'll see 5 Youtubers (including myself) talk about the books they are thankful for reading this year. Enjoy! 📚🥧

Feasted On: Victoria and the Rogue by Meg Cabot

Format: Paperback | Pages: 241 | Release Date: December 2004 | Publisher: Avon Books

"Victoria and the Rogue" by Meg Cabot

My Book Summary : Victoria has grown up with her three bachelor uncles in India ever since her parents died when she was very little. But now since she is sixteen they have shipped her off to live with her other aunt & uncle in England, and to find herself a husband. And even though her uncles made a wager as to how long it would take her to get a man to propose to her, she proves them all wrong by accepting a proposal while on the ship taking her to England!

Hugo is handsome and says the sweetest things to her ... and it doesn't hurt that he is a work-in-progress and needs her helping hand (and money) every once in a while (or more). But as she soon realizes that all might now be as it seems when it comes to her husband-to-be or his family. Especially since for a family who is on the decline (money wise), they surely do spend enough of it. Plus, it doesn't help that Captain Jacob Carstairs keeps telling her that Hugo is a rogue!!! Which just can't be! The Captain doesn't help any by always seeming to be around the corner or annoying Victoria by doing all sorts of things (especially when he calls her Miss Bee -- for being such a busy body). *sigh* What is a girl to do?

And then ..... maybe is this one situation where Victoria has it all wrong?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! CUTE & FUNNY to the extreme! Victoria and the Captain are so cute with their arguments. And I love how this is written like a first person passage but it goes into details that make it feel like the childhood stories I grew up with (but it's definitely a young adult book).

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Avalon High | Ready or Not

Book Teaser(s) :
Becky cast her cousin a disparaging look over one slim shoulder. She had been, ever since learning of her mother's acceptance of Captain Carstair's invitation to dine, coolly indifferent about the situation. But that, Victoria was quite certain, was all an act.
Or so Victoria had thought, until her cousin's next words hit her like a slap in the face.
"If you ask me, Vicky," Rebecca said in a very sour voice, "you're the one who seems to have a problem dining at Captain Carstairs's table this evening. For I certainly don't care. My affections belong entirely to another now." ~ within Chapter 8

Feasted On: Falling for Romeo by Jennifer Laurens

Format: Paperback | Pages: 197 | Release Date: Second Edition - 2009 | Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

"Falling for Romeo" by Jennifer Laurens

My Book Summary : Jennifer and John grew up together. Their parents are friends. Also, they are next-door neighbors with bedroom windows parallel to each other. So, it would be hard not to become friends as well. And they were up until three years ago, which is when they both seemed to drift apart from each other.

Now they are in their senior year of high school, working together as Romeo & Juliet in their school’s play, and finding out who they have become since then.

It’s not like they haven’t talked in school. Oh no, they’ve talked. Mostly during English class when they are debating whatever that day’s discussion topic is, they get into very specific arguments because of them, but they don’t really talk any more than that.

Since they were friends, John has become Mr. Popular. He has hordes of girls wanting to be his girlfriend and just people wanting to follow whatever he says. While Jennifer isn’t quite the social butterfly, but she’s pretty, sweet, and has friends who are on the popular side of the social scene. However, she is mostly involved in the theater productions at her school (has been since middle school) and loves it.

Therefore, when their school’s performance came up Jennifer definitely planned on being involved, but for John, he auditioned just so he could get close to Jennifer again. =0)

Things are okay between them for a while, until the rehearsal kissing scenes start up. Which is where they both realize (and kind of deny to themselves) their feelings for one another. But with each one not brave enough to set aside their own pride to admit their feelings, they have a hard time believing if the chemistry they have on stage is real or is it faked?

Will they be able to find out before the play is over and their lives go in different directions again?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!!! I LOVED the chemistry between Jen & John!! Plus, finding out how close they were growing up it is kind of surprising they ever stopped being friends, but it does happen. You will be routing for them the whole way! I couldn't put it down. Great Book!!

Book Teaser(s) :
"What?" he demanded.
She echoed him, "What?"
"What!"
"I can't believe you did that---in front of all those people!"
"What makes that any different than what you just did with Alex in front of all those people?"
"He kissed me, for your information!"
"I saw it!"
"Then do you need your eyes examined? He kissed me." ~ within Chapter 9

How sweet it is ....

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often we look so long at the closed door that
we do not see the one which has been opened for us."
- Helen Keller

Heartache, friendship, forgiveness .... are just some words to describe this touching story called "How Sweet It Is" by Alice Wisler. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars ... definitely living up to it's name! It's about Deena whom is living in Atlanta, GA and moves into her grandfather's cabin in Bryson City, North Carolina after her life crashes (literally). And the best way to turn her life around for the better is by moving.

Once she gets to the town she meets a town of characters from -- a Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber named Jonas (my favorite character in this book), to her crazy aunt Regena Lorraine, to a group of misfit middle school students, and more ... with the cherry on top being a hot social worker named Zack who usually seems to know the perfect thing to say to her.

I really think everyone should read this ... it's a great book of redemption. To find more about this book check out Alice Wisler's website.

Happy 25th Birthday to me today!! =0)

Made the Grade: Forget You by Jennifer Echols

Format: Paperback | Pages: 292 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: MTV Books

"Forget You" by Jennifer Echols

My Book Summary : Zoey's life is coming apart at the seams, and for a girl who tries to always portray herself as having it all together, that can change a person.

Basically her a couple of months ago her father informed her mother and her that his new girlfriend was going to have a baby. Then her mother fell into a depression and committed suicide, leaving Zoey to be the find her mother and make sure she got help. After dealing with that, her father threatening her not to tell anyone about what happened to her mother -- so no rumors would be spread, she goes to a party and hooks up with one of her guy friends (called Brandon). Even though she knows he usually is a player, she feels like their friendship before hooking up will make their relationship even better. A week goes by and her world is holding together for the most part. However, on Friday she decides to go to the Football game to support Brandon and her world takes another unexpected turn ....

While at the game she talks to her friends about an after party that Brandon said was just for the Football team, but they convince her that the Swim team should crash it. Then the next thing she knows is she is getting into a argument with Doug. Who just happens to be the bad boy at school, they haven't liked each other for a while now but he also just happens to be the only person who knows what happened to her mom and she hopes he'll keep it to himself. During that night however the argument is the last thing she remembers, as she finds out later that she happened to be in a car wreck loosing her memory.

Now while trying to piece her night back together, and trying to keep her secrets from everyone still, what she assumed she would have done seems to not have happened. Also, Brandon is no where to be seen but Doug just happens to be every where she is. Will she ever find out the truth and make sure no one finds out her biggest secret of all?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! A cute novel. Highly recommended. I wish I had a Doug of my own!! Zoey and Doug's relationship is so sweet especially since she knows there is an attraction but still is never sure exactly why.

Book Teaser(s) :
"What are you driving after that?"
I explained the conundrum of having a loaded father who bought expensive cars for himself and his mistress but not his daughter and disallowed his daughter from buying a cheap car either.
"He's as crazy as my dad," Doug marveled. "If he's so concerned about your safety, why won't he just buy you a car?"
"He says he doesn't want me to be a spoiled brat."
A few seconds passed, cars whispering beside us in the other lane of the main beach road, before I realized what I'd given away. ~ within Chapter 8
