With the love of writing comes the love of reading. The two of them together create the ultimate duo, and when used correctly, you could create something you never thought possible! For me, it's having the ability to escape reality and put myself in a new world all my own. As soon as I start the first page, I'm already sucked into some place I've never seen, heard, or experienced before. It's new and different for every book! Because of that, reading has become one of my most favorite past times, whether I'm laying on the beach or snuggled up with a hot chocolate. You could say I've turned into quite the bookworm, and have also accumulated a large collection of books just over the first half of this year.
Care to take a peek?
That's honestly not even all of it! There's at least five or six more books to add onto this pile, but I figured this is enough for now! Maybe I'll have to do another post if you all like this one! This post is only going to focus on these nine books though, and I'm going to give a little teeny tiny review on them just in case one looks interesting to you!
Let's get started!
I'll begin with these three because they aren't part of any series I have. Although, I believe one of them actually does have two more after it, but I didn't care to continue.
1. Switch by Megan Hart
This is one of the books I didn't manage to look up on GoodReads before buying, which I typically do before spending my money. I just walked into Barnes and Nobles and bought it. That was a mistake on my part! Now, the back made the book seem really interesting, so I thought I was getting myself into something really excited. Once I began reading it, I quickly realized I was wrong, shut the book at about chapter three, and haven't opened it since. It just wasn't fast paced and exciting like most books I read.
2. Losing It by Cora Carmack
This book was a super quick read, but entertaining none the less! As you can guess from the title, it's about a girl who loses her V-card, but not to someone she expected. The drama within the relationship was believable, and because the main character was in college, it was easy to relate. I am almost positive this is the book that has a few more after it, but the other one's are similar to spin-off books, which I don't tend to get very often.
3. Poor Little Bitch Girl by Jackie Collins
Strangely, I don't know how I feel about this book. Some days I'm really into it, and others I struggle to get through a chapter. I enjoy the plot and characters a lot, but the way it's written is what makes a bit difficult. The constant back and forth between multiple characters is hard to keep up with unlike how it would be with a movie. I did end up putting down half way through and haven't quite picked it back up again. Oops.
4. The Edge of Never & The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski
I can honestly say that these are two of my favorite books I've read this year and maybe even last! Everything about it had me wanting to read more and more every day. The minute I finished the first one, The Edge of Never, I was out the door and at Barnes and Nobles buying the second. It's such a great mixture of romance, friendship, love, and intimacy all wrapped into one. If you are looking for a book surrounding young love, then I highly suggest this one!
5. Rush & Fever by Maya Banks
These two books are part of a three book series all surrounding a group of three guys who have been friends for years. Each book focuses on one guy at time as well as it's own story line. When I read Rush over spring break, I absolutely loved it. It was indeed an interesting plot line that isn't for everyone, so be sure to research this a little if you're interested. But the second book was not my favorite. It has a bit of continuation from Rush in it, but the main girl in the story just made me want to shake something! Because of that I neither finished the second nor bought the third.
6. Fifty Shades of Grey series by EL James
All right, so last but not least, we have the Fifty Shades of Grey series. I really hope I don't get any slack for reading all four of these books, but I just loved them too much not to include them. I don't care what any one says, I enjoyed every bit of the books and will recommend them to anyone who has been thinking of checking them out! :)
Hopefully you have found at least one book that looks good to you! Be sure to let me know if you've read any of these or are interested! Have a fabulous rest of your day. :)
