Love this! : 15 Times We’ve Cheered For The Bad Guys In Movies

It’s good to be bad. Villains are always the most interesting characters, because they lack a moral compass and base their decisions often on emotion rather than rational thought. They’re fun, exciting, and unpredictable, whereas heroes tend to be bland and generic. It’s because of this dynamic that fans often like the bad guy more than […]

Book Review: Opening Hearts by Iona Findley

Hey, all! I just finished reading this next story on Wattpad. I think I am in love with this website. I have found that it makes it so easy to grab the next story and sink my teeth in. I will continue to pull stories from this website. I believe that outing these great stories and sharing them with the world will help cultivate this new authors and incourage them to keep writing! Go Iona!

Opening Hearts is an easy hearfelt story about taking risks, trusting others and self-sacrifice. This is a cute little story about the changes that can happen in life and the good things that come out of them. I would recommend this story if you are looking for something easy and laid back to read. If you’re looking for rainy day stories, this is definitely something to curl up with.

With few risque parts, the author joins a soft romance with a firey passion. It’s a story where love knows no bounds and despite the dangers of life and fear of the unkown there is always a bright side. The plot is well rounded and steady through the story. Check out this story at the link below to follow the story of Jessalyn and Sam.

P.S. It made me pretty upset to realize the story that I read on Wattpad was actually a duplicate of the original one written by another author. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised as this does happen but gosh… Anyway, my review of this story still stands. I uploaded a link of the author’s page at the bottom.

Here’s the link to this story!

WAITING TO BUY BOOKS

Ok…so yes. I’m addicted. It’s nothing like any drug that you’ve ever had or any drink you’ve ever tasted. It’s something you can feel and grasp and shake in your hands. The smell of the old flutters my heart and the new gives me the giggles. You can purely see in my face how excited I get each time a favorite author comes out on the shelves and I just “stumble” upon them.

I am addicted to books! I’m addicted to reading them, writing them, holding them and I even love it when I see other people reading. I guess that would mean a book review blog would be the perfect place to shout about my love and spread it to others! While walking through Walmart the other day I came across Runaway Vampire, the new Argeneau novel by Lynsay Sands. I, unforunately, wasn’t in a place where I could buy it but I will definitely be adding it to my collection of novels by the end of next week.

I wish that I could show you the large  piles of books and large reusable bags of books that i have. I have a very large walk in closet and due to me not having a bookshelf, I cant really “walk in”. Back home, in my two bedroom apartment, I had two very large bookshelves that I used. When I moved to Florida I bagged everything I owned, put it in my car and drove like crazy. Sadly, my compact car couldn’t handle the bookshelves and I was forced to leave them behind.

I love buying new books. I used to go by this weird philosophy that I was going to read every book that I own. Aparently I never took into consideration that I buy books faster than I read them. I used to leave Barnes and Nobles with four to five books and sometimes more depending on the sale. Now, as I dive deeper into buying books from thrift stores, Targets, garage sales and more; there’s just no way I can keep up. Nevermind the amount of books that have been donated to me because coworkers or friends of friends have found out how much I love reading. (btw…if you ever want to get rid of books, I am willing to take them, whatever they are).

 

You could even say that….I’m addicted.

Book Review: Kill Without Mercy by Alexandra Ivy

Hey guys!

I’ve read a lot of books lately and unfortunately I haven’t been able to bang out the reviews the way i want. Luckily, tonight has been a very good night for me so please expect a few more awesome reviews than usual!

I thought this was a great novel to an extent. I was definitely interested in Rafe in this novel. His character was loving, straight forward, hard around the edges but also hard in the inside (unlike a lot that i’ve seen as of late). This is another novel (in addition to the previous review) that had a bunch of sex in it. I mean…when i say pages and pages, I mean…paaaaaaages. I mean one time I covered my face a little and just skipped until at least they had their clothes back on.

 
Kill Without Mercy By Alexandra Ivy

I disliked the main character female. I just couldn’t deal with her. She annoyed me thoroughly. I just wanted to tell her to shut up a lot. I just couldn’t get her constant “crying”. She is like a 24 year old acting like a 3 year old and it frustrated me. I’ve dealt with some of the issues she goes through in the beginning of the novel and I just felt like saying “Girl!! Get over it!”

Anyway, if you have read this novel and you DID enjoy it let me know!

A Few More Changes

Hey!

So, remember how a few posts ago I said I will be doing some major construction to the site? Well, I am! Starting with buying a domain name! It’s officially going to be AScholarReview.com! Unfortunately, it did say that it might take 72 hours for to register so don’t be too upset if it doesn’t work right away!

So excited that I thought I’d share that with you guys! I will be making more changes over these next few weeks so be prepared to see some new things arise.

Love, peace and looking towards the future.

Reading and Working

Me!

One thing that I noticed about working full time is that it often seems like I never have time to read. When I’m not working, I’m driving to or from work. When I’m not driving or working, I’m eating or sleeping. Any other time is spent with the boyfriend. Ugh, I don’t write or read nearly as much as i want to. Thankfully, I do have a few days off throughout the week and on days that I’ve been scheduled early I can do some quality time by myself.

I have found a new love for cinema as well. I’ve always been interested in movies but the better they get at retelling novels when they go to motion picture the more I’m just…excited. I love all the Nicholas Sparks movies, I love the fiction novels or YA novels like Divergent that have really given me a new look at the transformation.

Anyway! 🙂

Book Review: The Immortal Who Loved Me by Lynsay Sands

Hi!

This book was pretty great. I actually think it was a breath of fresh air from the recent novels. So far we’ve mostly been dealing with humans or vampires that obviously already knew about the fall of Atlantis and everything that it had to do with the nanos. This time we got a really different spin on how it was told. I believe Lynsay Sands is one of the only authors with a paranormal series that tells back story so vividly. Facts have been checked, questions have been answered and it fits so well into the current story.

Yes, I would say that if you were binge reading (which I’ve done a few times) the series then you might sigh when you realize it most be told all over again. Fortunately, Sands doesn’t tell it the exact same way twice! I didn’t feel compelled to skip over that part! (Which is a plus!)

Sherry, the main character, had a sort of historically feel about her. The way she and Basil interacted kind of made me feel like I was reading a historical romance thrown into modern day. Decidedly, I’m sure that was done on purpose. There was sort of a slow cadence to this book that the others didn’t have. I liked it alot. It didn’t make you want to put the book down, at all. The slower crawl of the book also kept you from feeling like you just binge watched an entire season on Netflix and your eyes are drying out. It made me smile, it made me laugh and definitely there was a little frustration in there also!

I hope you enjoy the book! I definitely recommend reading it!

Jade

P.S. The Immortal Who Loved Me is the newest installment in a long series about the Argeneau family. I would suggest starting from the beginning with A Quick Bite, the series is definitely superb!
