Update & Small Haul

I was quite excited today when the mail arrived that I thought I would update and do a quick book haul!
When I opened the mail, this was waiting for me
I had been wanting a kindle for a while, and I when I noticed that Amazon was having a sale, I decide to pick one up. While I’m still a lover of paperbacks, I have been enjoying ebooks so much more. It was also time for an upgrade. I had an original Kobo that I had received as a birthday gift years ago, but sadly, its reaching its end. I am so excited, and I cannot wait to start reading!
Along with the Kindle, I picked up the following ebooks:

Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Hear-Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves

For review, from Entangled, I received:

                                        This Book will Change you Life by Amanda Weaver

Feature & Follow Friday [5]

This week’s weekly question:
If you could have any job what would you do?
Maybe this might seem like a boring answer, but its a tough question because there are so many jobs I would love to try, and if I could, I’d have been a forever student just to try so many of my different interests.
Though, for the sake of this question, I would love to be an English professor at a university. I loved my major so much, and one of the things that I loved about studying English were my profs. For the most part they were awesome, and they really changed the way that I viewed literature. Another reason, would be the fact that I would be able to share my number one love/interest/pass-time with others. As well, it also ties into history which is something else that I’m really interested in and could spend my time researching.
If you could pick any job which would you choose?

Review: Confessions of a Fat Girl

Author: Holly Dae
Pages: 247
Rating: 3 Stars

Synopsis: Smart and ambitious Season Minett was homeschooled, got accepted into college at 16, graduated with a B.A. in English at 20, got a job at a prestigious magazine at 21, and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. Twenty-two-year-old Season has it made and everyone knows it. Except Season herself.
People can gush over her all day long, but Season knows they’re just being nice. In reality, she’s accomplished nothing. She doesn’t work hard enough, can’t get her book published, and worst of all at 5’6, 180 pounds with a thirty-two inch waist, a forty-four inch hip, and arms too big for her body, she’s fat and ugly. She's such a disappointment that after her mother divorced Season's dad, she went to live with her new, younger boyfriend and left Season to mother the rest of her siblings. So Season is quite bewildered when the guy she sees every weekend at the bookstore shows serious interest in her. And she ends up liking him. A lot.
Season's not naive enough to think love will solve all her problems though. In fact, love seems to be making everything worse because her food obsession is growing more and more out of her control. But that's impossible. There's nothing wrong with counting calories and wanting to be thin. There's nothing wrong with trying to be as perfect as everyone thinks she is. A fat girl can't develop an eating disorder, let alone have one. Right?

Review: I had received this book in exchange for an honest review. When I had read the title of this book, I was completely interested in reading it, as it had captured by attention. This is Season’s story, and we are told the story looking at her life through her own thoughts and actions. Season really does not feel as though there is anything special about her, and she tries her hardest to keep locked away from everyone. Until she meets Victor. Try as she might to push him away, he is not scared off from her.
Season, as we learn very early on has an undiagnosed eating disorder. She is constantly counting her calories and really taking into consideration about what it is that she is putting into her body. About mid-way through the book, some things start to go down, and Season finds herself spiralling out of control and we witness just how self-destructive Season can be.
This is one of the first books that I have read that has to deal with eating disorders. One of the things that I was really not a huge fun of, was Season herself. I found it very, very difficult to like her, and maybe that was the point of her character, but I just found her to be very difficult to warm up to. As well, I know it was her nature, but I found her to be rather harsh and abrasive at times. She just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. On the otherhand, some of the thoughts that Season was having about herself are thoughts that I’ve had, and I’m sure that women will be able to relate to.
Overall, I did enjoy this book and I was really glad that I was given the opportunity to read it. Eating disorders are a thing that is becoming more and more apparent in our world, and it is important that we aware of what they are and just how damaging they can be. For as strong a woman and Season is, even she has her battles, and some things are harder to overcome than others.

Waiting on Wednesday [1]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Breaking the Spine. This event spotlights a book that we are most looking looking forward to!

My pick for this week is:

November 9
By: Colleen Hoover
Synopsis: Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.
Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?

Blurb: I love, love, love Colleen and I’m so looking forward to this book! There has not been a book of hers that I’ve picked up and not loved!

What book are you most looking forward to?

Review: Thoughtful

Author: S.C Stephens
Publisher: Forever
Pages: 560
Rating: 5 Stars 

Synopsis: The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything…
Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting—smart, sweet and dating h is best friend. Certain he would never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attracting…until Kiera’s own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of thing—he won’t let Kiera go without a fight.

Review: Despite having finished this book a few days ago, I’m still thinking about this story, and the characters, I cannot seem to get them out of my head. The same thing happened to me after I had finished reading Thoughtless. I wish I knew where to start with this review. When I found out that Kellan was going to get the chance to be able to tell his story, I was SO SO excited! I should also admit that I kind of forgot how angsty and heart-breaking the whole Kiera-Kellan-Denny this was. Despite knowing the story having read Thoughtless first, it completely changes it having it come from a different character’s point-of-view. I was fully aware of what I was getting myself into when I started this book, and I’m not sorry at all.
This book will definitely take a lot out of you. The way that S.C Stephens has written this book, everything feels so real, and it is so much more painful reading it from Kellan’s point-of view. He really does make your heart ache for him, and it is something that is extremely difficult to get over. Being given the opportunity to see this story unfold through Kellan’s eyes, you completely fall in love with him all over again.
Kellan: *swoon*
If I were to only be able to choose one book boyfriend, it would hands-down  be Kellan. I thought I had loved him after I finished Thoughtless, but I was SO wrong. If you fell in love with him in Thoughtless, just wait until you pick Thoughtful up. Being inside Kellan’s head, you just gain a much deeper understanding and appreciation for him, and you feel for him so much more. Your heart will begin to ache for him. The way that he feels about himself, and how he thinks that he is undeserving of love, made me feel so sad for him. It is his thoughts about himself, that make his actions, such as the meaningless sex with whoever catches his attention, seem to make more sense.
It is also safe to say that this books is HOT. Every emotion that Kellan feels, he makes you feel right along with him. The way that he feels about Keira, it is so hard not to feel anything at all. Everything in this book is so raw, and real.
Kiera: I’m going to begin by saying that I was not her biggest fan in Thoughtless, and you if you weren’t either, this book will make you like her even less. This girl is just down-right aggrivating! The fact that she is so indecisive about everything just really begins to get irritating. Being able to witness her from someone else’s eyes, she’s a really cold-hearted bitch. I understand though that she could not have been in an easy situation, but I think that she probably could have handled herself so much better. Denny, it was so nice to be able to see him through Kellan’s eyes, and you really do understand just want Denny means to Kellan, and what Denny had done for him.
D-Bags: Really, what can I say about these guys? They are just as fantastic in this novel as they were in Thoughtless. I felt reading this book that I was much more a part of the band, and I got to know Griffin, Evan and Matt on a completely different level.
It is safe to say that this book can be read as a standalone and really nothing will be ruined, but I would suggest reading Thoughtless first, I think it will making reading Thoughtful so much more enjoyable.
At the end of it all, I am SO in love with the world that S.C Stephens has created in this series. As much as I complain about Kiera, all of the characters are so wonderful and they really make the story come alive. It is not an easy story to read, and it will toy with your emotions in ways that you may not have thought possible, but it is enjoyable. If you’re finding yourself looking for something to read, I suggest you give the Thoughtless series a chance, you will not be disappointed!

Review: Grey

Author: EL James
Publisher: Vintage Books
Pages: 568
Rating: 2.5 Stars

Synopsis: Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty--until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him--past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian's cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsions to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

Review: Beginning this book, I knew exactly what I was getting into. Part of the reason that I wanted to read this book was to know what it would be like to be inside Christian's head (it was kind of interesting experience) and to see the world of the novel through his eyes.

I am going to admit that it was quite entertaining to be inside Christian's head, as there really is a lot that is going on in there. Some things were a little bit surprising, but having read Fifty Shades of Grey first, it kind of makes a little more sense. I must admit that while I was reading this book, I half expected there to be an "Inner Goddess", and I was partially right. Christian really does seem to favour a certain part of his male anatomy, and it is very clear through some of his inner dialogue.

Another positive that this book had was that it allowed reads to perceive Ana in a very different way. Through her eyes she was showing reads a very self-deprecating character who really didn't think too highly over herself. Seeing here through Christian's eye's though, it completely changes and it is very obvious to see how much he does care for her. As well, I was also looking forward to seeing where he went some nights, or what he was thinking himself, rather than having Ana gauge his reactions, and a lot of times, it seemed as though she was off and made him sound so much harsher than he actually was.

With that being said, there are a few things that I did have issues with. One thing that I noticed was there EL James really likes to repeat a lot of phrases, and metaphors. Christian, while talking about Ana, seems to repeat a lot of very similar feelings to himself, over and over. Mid-way through the book I was slowly starting to get a bit peeved at it, and I just wanted him to tell her what he was thinking. It was a bit lack-luster in that sense. Even the writing in some places seemed very generic, and almost rushed. After putting out FSOG, while still keeping through to the story.

Overall, it wasn't my favourite read, nor would it be placed in a top 10, but it wasn't terrible. If she does put out the other two novels from Christian's POV, I will read them, because I'm  hooked enough in the story, that I want to know what he is thinking about certain events unfold for him. If you were a fan of the FSOG series, then I would definitely recommend picking this up and giving it a read.
