Review: Everything for Her

Everything for Her Everything for Her by Alexa Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can say I much enjoyed this book!


To me, the awesome thing about this book is that though it was meant to be a romance, it was also a suspense book as well! Don't believe me? Then let's see what it's about!

Mallory was an orphan as a child in lived in an orphanage. Despite all of that, she got a full scholorship to the college of her dreams, and right as she was set to graduate, she got an internship at one of the most prestigious office's in the world. To say she is happy in an understatement, she is absolutely enthralled.

"From the beginning, I knew that she would be my greatest achievement, so the day I let her go, I set down a path for her.
A path to me.
No one knows it's been me behind the curtain, pulling the strings. I've constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her.
The time has come."




Now onto Miles part of the story (or, as he is known at the beginning of the book as the secretive Oz). The quote pretty much explains it all. He is very obssesive over Mallory and she hasn't even met him. He met her when she was about to graduate high school and he was about the graduate college. He has watched her since then and has (as stated above) set down a path for her that will lead her to him. Now that she works in his office, that time has come.

As you can foresee, Mallory eventually meets Miles and they bond instantly (well...I guess she does, he already knows her, ya know?). As his secrets come out (no, nothing earth shattering), she isn't sure she wants to be with Miles.

“I sit in front of her door all night.
And all day Sunday.
And all night Sunday.”


But guys, as creepy as all of that must have just sounded, when you read the book it really isn't. Just believe me, when you read the book you will fall in love with Miles because he honestly says/does the sweetest things. I mean, the man loves his mother to pieces and treats her like a queen, what more can we ask for? Plus, he does mean well, he just doesn't want to lose someone that means alot to him (love at first sight is what we'll call this).

The end of this book is hoenstly one of the sweetest/best things I have read. I just made me so happy for them!

"The first time I saw you, I thought I'd woken up in the land of Oz, It was like seeing color for the first time.



That all seems like alot to take in I know, and I don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll leave out all of the important plot twists that will literally blow your mind. Just read.this.book.

Review: Hula for the Home Front: A Nanea Classic 2

Hula for the Home Front: A Nanea Classic 2 Hula for the Home Front: A Nanea Classic 2 by Kirby Larson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought this was a very good book for children, though I did think the first one was better. This book continues where the first one left off with Donna gone, except a new girl has moved into town and goes to Nanea's school. Nanea used to be her teacher's top girl but to Nanea, it seems as if the new girl is getting all the attention. Nanea starts to have bad feelings towards the new girl until she learns her story. They soon become friends.

Nanea's brother is slowly heading towards his 18th birthday, once a man turn's 18, he can join the army, and that is exactly what he wants to do. Nanea doesn't want to lose him plus Donna.

During this time Nanea also teaches her dog a very interesting new trick.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of history be it a boy or a girl, no matter the age. It is all together a good book.

Review: Dirty Rowdy Thing

Dirty Rowdy Thing Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yet again another perfect book by the duo Christina Lauren. I will admit that when I first started this series I was sad. I was worried that this series would not be like their series before it. But that is not the case in the slightest.

This book follows Harlow and Finn. Harlow is one of Mia's friends that we meet in the first book in this series. Harlow and Finn ended up getting married just like Mia and Ansel, except they annulled it the next day.

Harlow connects with Finn again, this time in her home town. They both are going through a difficult time, and they use each other as a distraction. After each encounter they have with each other, they tell themselves that it means nothing to them and that they are just friends. But as time goes on, they both realize that it means more to both of them than just a distraction.

As always with Christina Lauren's books, we get such a nice sweet ending! Do not skip this one!

Review: Growing Up with Aloha: A Nanea Classic Volume 1

Growing Up with Aloha: A Nanea Classic Volume 1 Growing Up with Aloha: A Nanea Classic Volume 1 by Kirby Larson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly thought this was one of the better American Girl classic books, it was very realistic and it wasn't sugar coated.

This book takes place before and during the beginning of World War II. Nanea lives in Hawaii with her family and she loves it there. She feels as if everyone treats her as a baby when she wants to be considered an adult. She thinks everything in life is perfect until the bombing of Pearl Harbor and her life changes forever. All of the schools close and rationing starts, plus, Nanea loses her beloved dog.

As the book goes on, Nanea learns that life goes on no matter what, and she finally starts to act like an adult.

I am obviously above the age recommendation for this book but I fully enjoyed it. I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of history be it a boy or a girl, no matter the age. It is simply a very good book.

Review: He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection

He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection by Carol Kent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this book is amazing! Each page is labled with a day in the year, with which you are supposed to read it on. I find that while reading each day's devotional, I can always relate it to something, and that it has a calming effect on me. It is written in what the author believes would be God's reply.

I got a copy of this book from the publisher, but it does not in anyway affect my rating.

Review: Kiss Me in New York

Kiss Me in New York Kiss Me in New York by Catherine Rider
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book just didn't work for me and I don't even know why. I found it confusing at some parts (the writing seemed to go a bit off). I honestly hated the little stab they added in there about Rand Paul, naturally they make a republican look bad...

Review: Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War

Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War by David Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This may have been the best Civil War book I have read. This is by far not the first Civil War book I have read, but this Civil War book just hit me differently somehow.

The pages in this book are gorgeous, and so is the inside cover (It's a map with all of the major Civil War battles). Alot of the photos in the book have also been colorized from their original black and white look. There is alot of information about the war itself as well.

It doesn't matter if you are a long time Civil War lover (like me) or are just starting your journey into the horrible war, you will enjoy this book.
