Book Review: Keeping Kyler by Siobhan Davis

The Kennedy Boys...well if you haven't started reading this series, let me just tell you one thing; what are you waiting for?  These books are addicting, full of drama, full of hot boys and nothing like you ever read, you may think it is something like you have read but then you continue reading and then twists and turns come and BAM...totally different.

Okay, okay...Maybe I shouldn't have started my review like that but seriously, if you haven't started here is my review book 1: Finding Kyler and book 2: Losing Kyler.  And let's get to book 2:

Keeping Kyler by Siobhan Davis

34463575


From GoodReads:

Nothing or no one will keep them apart...

Kyler Kennedy is in the wind.

Shocked and upset, he has taken off on a solo mission--to track down hi mom's ex and demand answers.

Faye understands what it's like to have your world turned upside down.  Determined to support her boyfriend, she gives chase.  Yet nothing could prepare her for the ugly truth.  Ky has always been plagued with inner demons, and as he falls apart, Faye finally discovers what he's been hiding from her--from everyone.

When serious accusations arise, Kyler's future hangs in the balance.  But Kennedys stick together in times of crisis, and they rally around him now.

At least there is nothing to prevent Faye and Ky from being together.  They go public with their relationship, but not everyone is thrilled for them.  Enemies reappear, and battle lines are drawn, but Faye is ready to fight back.

No one is taking her new family from her.

Especially not a manipulative ex.

With time running out for Kyler, Faye takes matters into her own hands.

But when you play with fire, you risk getting burned.

----------------

OMG, where do I even start with this book?  I was none stop action, none stop twists and turns, I freaking loved every single thing about it, every single chapter.  Be prepared, that's all I'm going to say, because the book starts with one dark secret and then one evil twist.  But when you think things couldn't get any worse, BAM...more things come up that you didn't even see it coming.

Kyler goes on a mission to get answers from his mom's ex boyfriend and while there he finds out more than he wanted and when he left that house he wasn't happy at all.  But he was glad to find Faye and one of his brothers in his hotel room in the morning because he definitely he needs their help. Then we get another twist in the story,  AH, I freaking love Siobhan and her twist but I freaking kills you for sure when you are reading lol.  Poor Kyler, he sure has to go through hell in this book but he comes out so much stronger and mature for sure.   And you would think this twist would solve nice and easy, right?  Nope, this twist will actually involve a couple other characters that I didn't see it coming and the reason behind?  Mind freaking blowing, be prepared because when this all solves and you find out the whole truth?  You just want to reread all the books all over again.

I don't want to go too much into, because I do believe that is best to go into this book not knowing what happens and be surprise while things start happening.  I just have to say that you really need to start reading this series because it truly is amazing and you will not be disappointed.

5 out of 5 stars for sure!!!! Love it :)

Book Review: Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

Time for another book review...first of all Thank You NetGalley for the eARC of this book!!!


Perfect by Cecelia Ahern

28116714


From GoodReads:
Celestine North is Flawed.

Ever since Judge Crevan declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick, the only person she can trust.

But Celestine has a secret--one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground.  A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing.

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine.  With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or risk her life to save all Flawed people.

----------------------

After reading Flawed I was so glad that I had this book to read it right away.  And oh man, Celestine had so many things thrown at her.  Do this, no wait, do this first.  No, wait...maybe you should do this.  The poor girl was thrown everywhere, I'm so glad that she had Carrick by her side, especially in this book.  She has so many decisions to make and they weren't easy, especially when she had to start to trust people to help her, people that she had never met in her life before.  Lots and lots of things happened in this book and don't think that Celestine had it easy because she suffered again in this book, she was captured and rescued again.  Judged so many times and I think that is the worse, when you just keep getting judged.

At the end she did it...she fought and fought hard for what she believed and she won.  Want to know what exactly and how?  Then you need to read the book, no spoilers :)

4 out of 5 stars...

XOXO,

Book Review: After You by Jojo Moyes

Who hasn't read Me Before You?  That was one of the most popular books of 2016, especially with the movie coming out.  I read the book and loved and yes I watched the movie too I actually really enjoyed the movie too.  I have had this book for a while on my TBR and I have finally read it so let's review it:

After You by Jojo Moyes

24941288

After You follows Lou after what happens at the end of Me Before You.  And, basically Lou is a mess.  She is not the same bubbly person that we met on Me Before You, she is sad, depressed and pretty much miserable and doesn't know what to do with herself and her life.  At the beginning of the book she is on an unfortunate accident and ends up back at her parents house for a while, which she isn't too happy about it but ends up liking it at the same time.  Once she gets back up on her feet (literally) she goes back to London and her lot and back to the "life" she has created after Will.

She joins a grief group, we get to see her there and get to meet the people from that group, I actually liked the grief  group and wish there was of it than we got.  Then Lou gets a surprise from Will's past life, someone that even Will didn't know existed and she spends the whole entire book consumed by this person, trying to help and get this person's life back together, like it was more important than her own life.  (yes, I guess I had a little bit of problem with this part of the book).

Lou does meet someone else in this book and begins a relationship and I really thought it was going to get her up on her feet and see her back together, but nope, she was so not sure of herself even at the end of the book, which totally surprised me what she ended up doing.  I think I loved her love interest more than Lou (lol).

I ended up giving this book 3.5 stars out of 5, why?  It was nice to see the Traynors and Lou's family (even though I still don't know what her mother was doing to herself, you can be a feminist and love our husband, right?).  Her sister?  She was the one that had her entire life figure out and was doing better than anyone, a really nice change.  Lou was just a very different character in this book and I think that disappointed me a little.  Let me know if you agree with me.


XOXO,

Book Review: Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

Okay, let's do this, time for another book review...and today we are reviewing a dystopian book.  I don't get to read that many dystopian books anymore, I promised myself to read more genres and I'm happy that I have accomplished that goal, but at the same time I miss reading dystopian books so I'm going to have to remedy that...yeah that sounds good.

Here is today's review:


Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

23438288

From GoodReads:
Celestine North lives a perfect life.  She's a model daughter and sister, she's well liked by her classmates and teachers, and she's dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan.

But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision.  She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions.  She could be imprisoned.  She could be branded.  She could be found FLAWED.

--------

Flawed takes place in a society where everyone is supposed to be perfect, you make a mistake and you are branded Flawed and you pretty much become an outsider, who people don't want to talk to, who people feel disgust by.  And because of the way they live, everyone tries to be Perfect, tries to never do something that will make them be judged and become Flawed.

Celestine has been a perfect role model her entire life, she believes in been perfect and she has always believe in the laws and the government, but when one morning she finds herself in a situation where her life turns 180 degrees?  She starts to doubt everything she always believed.

This was such a different book to read, but a book where we can learn from it at the same time, how would like to be perfect?  But then we see how the whole society lives and when Celestine gets judged by what she does we start to see all the flaws that whole society actually has.  Loved the writting, love characters...can't wait to read the next book.  4 out 5 stars.


XOXO,

Nelia
