Review: The Otto Digmore Difference by Brent Hartinger

I was going to say that this isn’t exactly the kind of book that I would normally read, and in one way it definitely is not, but in another – when I really think about – this is exactly the kind of book I would normally read. The Otto Digmore Difference by Brent Hartinger follows the story of Otto Digmore, an actor, who has recently had what he believes is his big break in Hollywood, starring in a supporting role on a popular sitcom. However when Otto’s show is cancelled, he finds that the only roles that have opened up to him are those trying to take advantage of his severely scarred face and cast him as a villain or a freak. That is until a role comes up that seems perfect. The novel follows the journey that Otto and his best friend Russel take across the country in the hopes of landing Otto’s dream role. All the typical road trip cliches happen — much to Russel’s delight — and a number of old feelings reappear — not that Russel can ever know about that. Read more →

Review: Cherry by Lindsey Rosin

When I read the blurb of Cherry, I knew I wanted to read it. Four best friends, about to graduate, creating a sex pact? I am in! I’m so glad I finally picked up this book, because I absolutely adored it. Layla, Emma, Alex and Zoe have a couple months left until graduation.. and before they have to part to each go to college. Layla, being the planner she is, has created a to do list with things she wants to do before graduation. Get highlights, make an A in English Lit.. and have sex with her boyfriend of two years. Before you know, The Crew (as the girls are called) have created the sex pact: they will all lose their virginity before graduation together. Not together together, but seperately together. Layla has the perfect plan to loose it on Valentine’s Day, Alex says she’s already lost her v-card, Emma is the first one of the bunch to loose hers after the sex pact has been created and Zoe starts giggling as soon as something says the word orgasm, so they so conveniently start using the word fireworks instead. And they invent the sexie, the after sex selfie, to send to The Chat as proof after they’ve done the dirty. Layla even creates a whole Sex Doc, with all the tips and tricks for the big deed.

Review: All About The D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam

When I read the blurb of this book, I knew I had to read this and that I was going to love it. And I was right, this book is the perfect mix of sexy, funny and angsty and I enjoyed every second of it.

Review: Chronicles of Ixia 1-3 by Maria V. Snyder

I have started the Chronicles of Ixia series, or the Study series as they were previously known. My best friend loves them and she finally convinced me to read them. Seeing as there are 9 books in this series and I’m currently on book 4, I thought I’d split up the reviews in three parts, each part talking about three books. This is part 1, where I will discuss the first three books of the series.
When I started the first book, Poison Study, I was kind of getting a The Sin Eater’s Daughter vibe, but that changed pretty quickly. I have to say, I really enjoyed the first book. In the beginning I was a bit hesitant about Yelena, because she was a mouse and saying yes sir to everything, but at one point that changed like someone had flipped a switch and she became stubborn and bad ass. There is a romance in this series, but it’s not the main focus of the books which is actually pretty refreshing. I have to say that even though I like Yelena and her ‘heartmate’, I don’t particularly ship them. However, I do like her love interest as his own person. In the first book you also meet Ari and Janco, and the two of them are called the power twins and they’re a great duo. Their friendship with Yelena is one of my favorites. Read more →
