Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I am just going to start the review off like this.

This book gets way too much hate. It honestly had spectacular writing. With all the hate this book got I assumed I'd hate it to, but I was wrong. If you don't like erotica, you don't have to read this book, in fact, don't, it doesn't need to be ruined by people like you.

Okay, now time for the review.

Review: Filthy Beautiful Lies

Filthy Beautiful Lies Filthy Beautiful Lies by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I can say I quite enjoyed this book! The cool thing about it was that it was a quick read that kept you wanting to read more, it wasn't drawn out.

So our main character, Sophie, is a virgin. She needs to make money fast and the only way to do that is to sell her body. That in itself isn't that much different then alot of indie author's books. It seems to be a recurrent theme in the books erotic indie authors write, I can say though that Kendall Ryan's is the only one I could actually read in it's fullness, none of the others I could deal with.

And then our other main character Colton [Drake]. He obviously buys Sophie at the auction. And then there is the auction scene and we have the one big bad man, and then we have the male protagonist who "seems better" than all the others, yada yada. And then he is obviously hiding a secret which yet again isn't that original, it was kina obviouse throughout the whole book.

So honestly, was this the best book I've read this year? No, far from it. But it was a quick read and I can say Kendall Ryan is one of the better indie authors I have read. The part that really irked me in this book is the bad grammer (yikes, there is a ton of it) and the fact that it wasn't very original, and I'm not going to say I fell in love with any of the characters because most of the time [spoiler] I got Sophie the protagonist and Stella the wife mixed up [/spoiler] and honestly Colton had no loveable qualities to him. I will read the nex book in the series but I better be more impressed.

Review: In Flight

In Flight In Flight by R.K. Lilley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book... I guess I shouldnt've expected much considering it's self published, but come on, that was something else! The writing in it was so darn bad. And then, every few lines, the other would put 'K' in instead of 'Okay'. Even in emotional moments, all we got was 'K'.

Review: Dirty Billionaire

Dirty Billionaire Dirty Billionaire by Meghan March
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I'm just...what was there in this book to like? There was absolutly nothing likable from this book... I got to over page 100 and I just couldn't do it anymore. The writing wasn't good, and I get that we were supposed to see some kind of compassion from whoever the guy in this particular book was, but I couldn't connect with him at all and I felt like the writing was rushed, the chapters were like...two pages at most. Don't waste your time on this one.

Review: Control

Control Control by Charlotte Stein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So to this book I give the "Best Book I've Read This Year" award!

So we start out in this book with Maddie trying to get a helper at her book store. She has two people who she thinks are fit for the job, Andy and Gabe.

Andy is confident in his sexuality.

Gabe? Not so much.

“It makes me restless and agitated that he doesn't understand his own attractiveness. So I step forward and touch him. He should be touched-it's a crime he hasn't been.”

Gabe has very low self esteem I guess you could say. Not to mention he was a virgin before he meet Maddie. He had bad parents growing up, but not in that over-used way that authors always tend to use. But in the end, Gabe get's the job.

At first, Gabe is very closed off and doesn't like to let out too much of his real feelings towards things, he is a big perfectionist and thinks that "normal" is actaully a thing and something he should strive to be, anything he considers out of the box is a no first.

He then starts to connect with Maddie. But it's not as if he starts it, Maddie starts talking to him.

Gabe IS NOT the dominate here in any sense, it's all Maddie. But honestly, that may be why I loved him so much, he was just so innocent.

But it's honestly really sad how low Gabe views himself.

I'm not going to ruin the whole book for you. But it's not like it's all sex, there are some super sweet parts.

“Like cuddling. He can do all these things, all of these delicious detached sex things, and then cuddle. And kiss me. And mummurs things into my hair. I try to squirm away, but I don't think he's going to let me.
And then he says, "Do you not want me to hold you? You can go and hug Andy, if you want to. I don't mind."
What's worse is-I can't tell if he genuinely means it or not. But I know he means it when I remain right where I am, and don't say anything or do anything, and he quite suddenly decides to say words I know already, I do know.
"I love you," he tells me.”

Just read this book, I did it zero justice, but believe me, you need to read.

Review: My Favorite Mistake

My Favorite Mistake My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Kay, so Imma tell you, this book started out awesome, I can say it started out great, like, couldn't put it down great.

We had great characters, I mean, yes, Taylor was annoying, but she was who she was, she was tolerable, but not love worthy. I loved Hunter at first, he was funny and your typical guy. The whole time I was pretty confused with was the roomates were, and who the friend was, and who Hunter's sister was, but hey, that may just be me.

Okay but at about 48% of completition, this book got stupid, this book got cheesy, this book got to the point of unreadable.

Hunter stopped being funny, Taylor got worse and punched him, like girlie, we don't punch guys. And then I guess she woke up and bite him? I'm-

And then the author was all "xxx touched me in my special place" and I'm all, "Honey, that sounds worse then if you were to just call it what it is.

Oh and after writing this review I realized how much this book actually sucks so instead of a three, I'm giving a 2.

I'm done now with this review, don't read this book.

Review: What I Leave Behind

What I Leave Behind What I Leave Behind by Alison McGhee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'll be completely honest, I enjoyed this book 100 times more than I ever thought I would, It's nothing like I normally read, but that does not change the fact that it was one of the best books I've read this year.

We start off with Will trying to recreate his father's corn bread recipe, he seems really adamant about it, but we don't really know why at this point. He is a walker, he walks to clear his mind, to get places. He just started walking around after he lost his father.

The book is written in small one page chapters written as if Will's mind is speaking directly to us. Will walks around town and see's a homeless man, a small child living in poverty, his boss with special needs and his best friend, who was raped after he left a party.

Will has alot of doubt that he doesn't really ever seem to realize he has, he feels responsible for his best friend's rape, he feels responsible for his father.

The book is actually extremly disheartening, but it is very true to life. He walks and things just happen, there is no warning, no foreshadowing, life happens...
