Synopsis: Kate’s dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she’s still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he’s a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life. When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached. But could they be right for each other after all?
My Review: This book was so easy to read! I flew through it, the writing is so emotive and really makes you connect with both Aidan and Kate. I wish it didn’t end! I am hoping and praying that Jolene Perry is planning some kind of a sequel/spin off because I just want to read more!
I am most absolutely, positively, recommending this to everyone!

Title: Elevator Heat
Author: B.D Rowe
Publish Date: 17th December 2013
Twenty-year-old Maddie has had a crush on Colin, her studly internship supervisor, for three long months. She struggles focusing on her work, and always finds herself gazing at his wavy brown hair, his chiseled cheekbones, his kissable lips. Little does she know, however, that he has feelings for her, too.
The problem is no matter how much time they spend together in the office, neither one can ever make the first move.
That is, until they both step into the old, rickety elevator late one Friday night.
And things start to get a little steamy…
My Review: AHHHH you know when a book really gets to you? A book that you absolutely love? THIS IS ONE OF THEM.
The characters are believable, Colin is such a good guy and you fall for him, hard. I sometimes find sex scenes really cringey with the terminology used, but this really wasn’t.
I love the way it’s written, swapping from point of views, it makes it more interesting than normal romance book I read.
I really hope this isn’t a one off as I really want to read more!
I’m on my way to tell EVERYONE about this book, it’s one of those books that are so good you just want everyone to read!
My Review; I LOVED this book, so different from the erotica norm. Can’t wait to read Screen, the second in the series coming out in winter 2014!
Ew, its literally a one line review but I have an exam today (english) and this should really the last thing I should be doing at 12 am! (it just shows you how good this book is! )
I’m about to start some self help books (21 day tummy being one of them) If the book is set to be done over a set amount of days, do you want as my review to be a log of every day? I don’t know if that would be better than a review I would do for a fiction book?

Synopsis: Jaxon and Shay Vale are 16-year-old twins, one of whom, due to their heritage, will be the future Lord or Lady of Vale Manor in England. In their eyes, this is a burden and not one they are the slightest bit interested in. For now, it’s their father’s turn to take on the lordship after the death of their grandfather. This means a move from Ireland to Jarrowvale in the Lake District, much to their annoyance. Seeing the manor doesn’t help matters either; in fact, as soon as they arrive, Jaxon and Shay are ready to take the next plane back to Ireland. Jaxon is sure he heard the house call his name and decides it is too creepy for him. An old lady from a store in the village tells them about the manor’s secret: the 24th Room, which sits in the 5th Dimension, can be reached from a stairway that will take them on a journey through the amazing night sky. This room is like no other, and holds many surprises for Jaxon and Shay. The legend of the room states, once they turn 18, that their memory of the 24th Room will disappear…But will it? 24th Room is a work of young adult fiction that will appeal to 12-16 year old ‘teensters’ that enjoy fantasy fiction. It is the first of two books in the 24th Series.
My Review: Look, this book was pretty mundane, I mean the plot is great and exciting! But the writing was lacking, putting it politely, I think mostly because Ellynby is trying really hard to appeal to ‘teensters’ and I’m just assuming here that she’s also American, or at least not English because of some language choices or the education system used.
No self-righteous 16 year old says ‘dufus’ plus it’s suuuper american. ‘High school’ in England ends when the person is 16.
I wouldn’t market it at the 12-16 age, more between the ages or 8-12.
Happy (almost) new year guys!
My family have just gone out for new year so that’s left me with my cousin and her boyfriend for about the next 12 hours; I propose a readathon! Let’s see what I get read!
