The Weaver ARC Review

Thank you to Netgalley and The Parliament House for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

Most writers choose the endings to their stories . . . most writers are not Weavers.

Laney Holden is a freshman at Madison College whose life goes from normal to paranormal in a matter of seconds. When the antagonist in the book she’s writing shoves her down the stairs at the subway station, she learns she is a Weaver. Weavers bridge the narrow gap between fantasy and reality, bringing their words to life.
Laney soon meets William whom she also suspects is a character from her book—one she’s had a mad crush on since her pen hit the paper. But he’s in danger as her antagonist reveals a whole different ending planned for Laney’s book that involves killing William. Laney must use her writing to save the people closest to her by weaving the most difficult words she will ever write.

THE WEAVER is the first installment of The Weaver trilogy. It is an NA paranormal romance set in a small town on the north shore of Boston. It will leave you wanting more.

– Goodreads

I had so many conflicting thoughts about The Weaver. I wanted to love this story, however, it was more of an eh like. The book wasn’t bad by any means, but by the end I wanted it to be over. It was only 238 pages.

The characters were the biggest issue for me. They all seemed flat and overdramatic, if that can even be a thing? None of them were likable. I felt the two male MCs were boring and stereotypical. Just a normal jock and a normal guy from the 1700s. Nothing special. All of Laney’s friends were annoying. Laney was whiney. I feel like if the characters ahd something to set them apart it would have worked much better.

I loved the premise of a writer being able to weave her story to life. It’s such an interesting concept – one that will probably have me looking for the second book in the series even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the characters.

Thank you to Inkyard Press for an invite to the blog tour and a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This beautifully lyrical contemporary novel features an elite teen swimmer with Olympic dreams, plagued by injury and startled by unexpected romance, who struggles to balance training with family and having a life. For fans of Sarah Dessen, Julie Murphy and Miranda Kenneally.

Susannah Ramos has always loved the water. A swimmer whose early talent made her a world champion, Susannah was poised for greatness in a sport that demands so much of its young. But an inexplicable slowdown has put her Olympic dream in jeopardy, and Susannah is fighting to keep her career afloat when two important people enter her life: a new coach with a revolutionary training strategy, and a charming fellow swimmer named Harry Matthews.

As Susannah begins her long and painful climb back to the top, her friendship with Harry blossoms into passionate and supportive love. But Harry is facing challenges of his own, and even as their bond draws them closer together, other forces work to tear them apart. As she struggles to balance her needs with those of the people who matter most to her, Susannah will learn the cost–and the beauty–of trying to achieve something extraordinary.

This book so was so beautiful. It was lyrical, it was descriptive, it was heartbreaking and joyous. And it was so so real.

First let me get out these trigger warnings. I don’t do them often, and nothing is super graphic, but I do want to mention the book contains struggling with mental health and self harm.

Okay, so. Susannah is a world champion swimmer. The summer after she won, she hit a growth spurt, and hasn’t been the same since. Dave has always been her coach. He’s an Olympian, so he knows what it takes to get there. This year, he hires a new coach, Beth. Susannah swears she won’t swim for her, but after finally having enough of Dave’s abusive behavior, she swims for Beth and gets better. But does she have what it takes to make the Olympics?

Along with swimming, this book mainly features Susannah’s relationship with Harry, another boy on the swim team. It is her first love. I love books about first love. The feelings are all new and exciting, and you’re just fumbling around, and it’s just great. Their relationship turned out to be so much deeper than I expected. It’s nice to see a deep, meaningful relationship between high schoolers.

Breath Like Water also showed some strong family bonds. The relationship with Susannah’s parents and sister was a huge part of the book and I loved it. I feel like I don’t get a lot of that in ya contemporaries, so it’s always a nice surprise when I do.

If you love ya contemporaries, with strong familial bonds and a backdrop of sports, this book is for you!

🦖 Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend Review 🦖

🦖 Title : Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend
🦖 Author : Alan Cumyn
🦖 Publisher : Atheneum/Caitlyn Dlouhy Books
🦖 Publish Date : March 22, 2016
🦖 Genre : Ya, Fantasy, Romance
🦖 Book Form : Ebook
🦖 Pages : 416
🦖 Dates Read : Apr 23 – Apr 25
🦖 Rating : 🦖

Prepare to be blown away—or rather, carried away on huge muscular wings—by this blissfully outlandish, bracingly-smart, tour de force about a teen who has to come to terms with relinquishing control for the first time as she falls for the hot new…pterodactyl…at school. After all, everybody wants him!

Shiels is very pleased with her perfectly controlled life (controlling others while she’s at it). She’s smart, powerful, the Student Body Chair, and she even has a loving boyfriend. What more could a girl ask for?

But everything changes when the first-ever interspecies transfer student, a pterodactyl named Pyke, enrolls at her school. There’s something about him—something primal—that causes the students to lose control whenever he’s around. Even Shiels, the seemingly perfect self-confident girl that she is, can’t keep her mind off of him, despite her doting boyfriend and despite the fact that Pyke immediately starts dating Jocelyn, the school’s fastest runner who Shiels has always discounted as a nobody.

Pyke, hugely popular in a school whose motto is to embrace differences, is asked to join a band, and when his band plays at the Autumn Whirl dance, his preternatural shrieking music sends everyone into a literal frenzy. No one can remember what happened the next day, but Shiels learns that she danced far too long with Pyke, her nose has turned purple, and she may have done something with her boyfriend that she shouldn’t have. Who’s in control now?

– Goodreads

Okay. So. This is one of those books everyone talks about how bad it is. They tell you not to read it, but you do to see how bad it is. This was also (jokingly) a group read last month in Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge. Perfect time to read it and see what the big deal was.

The deal was – it was bad. Shelis is a highschooler. She’s very into student council, so when a pterodactyl joins the school, she decides she is going to make sure he fits in. All the while, she falls in love with him, is jealous he likes her AND another high school girl, AND Shelis’ MOM FALLS FOR HIM. WHAT? They also all have purple noses after they wrangle dance with him. Aka sex. They have sex with a pterodactyl. And get purple noses. I just… what?

That was my thought throughout the whole book. Just what? I was confused. So much happened, but it also seemed like nothing happened? It was weird. And bad. Please don’t read it.

I’m going to link my friend Jordan’s review here. She says it much better than me. Her review is honestly way better than the whole book – and takes a lot less time to read!

Dear friends, please tell me you have not read this book. But if you have, I want to know your thoughts in the comments below!

💕 What I Like About You ARC Review 💕

💕 Title : What I Like About You
💕 Author : Marisa Kanter
💕 Publisher : Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
💕 Publish Date : April 7, 2020
💕 Genre : Contemporary, Romance, YA
💕 Book Form : E-ARC
💕 Pages : 416
💕 Dates Read : Apr 26 – Apr 27
💕 Rating : 💕💕💕💕

💕 Thank you to Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 💕

Can a love triangle have only two people in it? Online, it can… but in the real world, it’s more complicated. In this debut novel Marisa Kanter explores what happens when internet friends turn into IRL crushes.

There are a million things that Halle Levitt likes about her online best friend, Nash.

He’s an incredibly talented graphic novelist. He loves books almost as much as she does. And she never has to deal with the awkwardness of seeing him in real life. They can talk about anything…

Except who she really is.

Because online, Halle isn’t Halle—she’s Kels, the enigmatically cool creator of One True Pastry, a YA book blog that pairs epic custom cupcakes with covers and reviews. Kels has everything Halle doesn’t: friends, a growing platform, tons of confidence, and Nash.

That is, until Halle arrives to spend senior year in Gramps’s small town and finds herself face-to-face with real, human, not-behind-a-screen Nash. Nash, who is somehow everywhere she goes—in her classes, at the bakery, even at synagogue.

Nash who has no idea she’s actually Kels.

If Halle tells him who she is, it will ruin the non-awkward magic of their digital friendship. Not telling him though, means it can never be anything more. Because while she starts to fall for Nash as Halle…he’s in love with Kels.

– Goodreads

Oh, I love books that mesh online worlds and the real world. Halle has an altar ego – Kels. Kels is super cool on twitter and the blogging world. She has a great YA blog that pairs books with cupcakes. She’s quick, witty, and sure of herself.

Her best friend online is Nash. He is an artist. They share each other’s stuff, comment on everything, and talk in DMs. So what happens when Kels moves to middle of nowhere Connecticut and meets Nash? Please read the book and find out!

This was such a cute ya contemporary. I loved the fact that it was about a YA blogger. I also used to bake cupcakes obsessively and it really made me want to start back.

I had such a love/hate relationship with Halle. At times I just wanted to scream at her but at times I related to her so much.

The love between Halle and Nash was PERFECT. It reminded me of being young and in love. They had great times, and they fought. It seemed so real!

Another positive aspect of this book is Jewish rep! I have never read another YA with Jewish rep. I loved learning about Jewish church services and other holidays they celebrate!

The only issue I had with this book is that Halle made some comments about adults reading YA novels that were not positive. I am an adult – I’m 30. There’s no more denying. The majority of what I read is ya, so the comments honestly made me very sad.

Even with those comments, I would still recommend this book! It was so cute and fun and the romance was great!

🏔️ Shredded Review 🏔️

🏔️ Title: Shredded
🏔️ Author: Tracy Wolff
🏔️ Publisher: Flirt
🏔️ Publish Date: February 4, 2014
🏔️ Genre: New Adult, Romance, Sports

Twenty-one-year-old professional snowboarder Z Michaels is the bad boy of Park City, Utah. He’s always had his pick of any girl in town—and on the competition circuit. But underneath his cool exterior is a young man in turmoil, trying to take the edge off tragedy by overindulging in sex and shredding the slopes. In fact, Z’s reckless behavior is a thinly veiled attempt to blunt his emotional suffering with physical pain.

Ophelia Richardson isn’t like any girl Z has ever met. Though she’s from New Orleans high society, she’s no Southern belle—and she’s not shy about being miserable in frozen, godforsaken Park City. But laying low is her only option after her ex, a rich boy who couldn’t take no for an answer, nearly killed her in a jealous rage. Following that terrifying encounter, the last thing Ophelia needs is a boyfriend—especially one as rich and arrogant as Z. But Ophelia soon discovers that he isn’t what he seems. If anything, Z may be even more damaged than she is.

Tormented by their pasts and feeling alone in the world, Z and Ophelia find a connection unlike any they’ve ever known. But with Ophelia hiding the details of her life in Louisiana and Z’s death wish reaching terrifying new heights, their relationship seems to be going downhill before it even begins—unless they can find the strength in each other to trust, grow, and love again.

– Goodreads

I decided to pick this book up after chatting with Tracy. I had just finished Crave and Red Hood, which were both amazing, and had somewhat of a book hangover. She said for anyone starting with her romances (she has written over 60) that she would start with this series. It’s one of her favorites she had ever written. Romances usually pull me out of slumps, and this did a great job!

The story follows Z and Ophelia. I liked that it was insta-love for him, but not really for Ophelia. I mean, sure, she thought he was super hot, but it felt like it took way more for her to fall for Z and let him in. I thought it was an interesting twist and one I haven’t read many of! Usually it’s the girl falling instantly for the guy.

I loved the progression of their relationship. They both had some kind of baggage and it came out slowly. Nothing was perfect at any point, but they learned how to be perfect for each other. During the chat, Tracy said she tried to write her heroes how she taught her boys – how to treat women with respect and never force anything. I could totally see this in Z!

All of the side characters were great. The next books in the series focus on Z’s friends. I’m assuming there will be cameos from Z and Ophelia, which will be super fun to see! I will definitely continue on with the Extreme Risk books!

I recommend to anyone who loves romances and snowboarding! It was a great change of scenery from what I usually read.

🧛 Crave ARC Review! 🧛

🧛 Title: Crave
🧛 Author: Tracy Wolff
🧛 Publisher: Entangled: Teen
🧛Publish Date: April 7, 2020
🧛 Book Form: Physical ARC
🧛 Pages: 592
🧛 Genre: Fantasy, YA, Paranormal
🧛 Dates Read: Apr 5 – Apr 9
🧛 Rating: 🧛🧛🧛🧛🧛

Thank you to Entangled: Teen for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.

Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.

Which could spell death for us all.

Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.

– Goodreads

Let me tell you guys. I am HERE for the return of sexy vampy romance! YES YES YES!

The story followed Grace. Her parents died in a freak accident, so she is sent to live with her only surviving family, her uncle and cousin. At a boarding school. In rural Alaska. Grace is from California. Major change there. Turns out, this is a boarding school for vampires, shifters, witches, and things that go bump in the night. Will Grace come out on the other side alive?

I hear a lot of people say this is a Twilight ripoff. Like, ok. I guess. Girl meets vampire in school. Inexplicably drawn to him. Falls in love. Finds out hes a vampire. But this is so much more than that. Also, isn’t that the plot of most/all teen vampire romances?

I loved all the characters. Grace was interesting and down to earth. She seems like someone I would definitely hang out with. Jaxon was Mr. Tall, Dark and Sexy Vampire like he should be. Plus he seemed to actually care about Grace. Grace’s cousin was fun and I couldn’t tell if the dragon was good or bad!

Crave was also funny. Grace keeps comparing herself to a ya heroine or a ya love story which made me laugh. There’s a throwback to Twilight. It was also a super fast read. I could not believe I read almost 600 pages in four days! That shows what I can really do if I am loving a story!

The book ended on a great cliffhanger and I cannot wait for book #2! I need it like, yesterday.

📚 Down the TBR Part 18 📚

Another week! I haven’t gotten near as much reading done as I wanted to, but as I settle into a new routine I’m hoping that I can! Mostly it’s if I can stay off Animal Crossing and my kid lets me…

Let’s get to clearing this tbr! We are starting at 1825. I may do a few extra books today to try to get under 1800! Let’s do this!

✔ What I Kept ✔

Matters of the Heart by Danielle Steel
I am here for obsessive love and sociopaths.

Emergency Doctor by Edward Ziegler and Lewis R Goldfrank
I think I’ve read this one before. But I love true medical stories. Helps to remember why I chose this profession because some days, especially lately, I really wonder.

Breathe My Name by RA Nelson
I’ve been super into YA thrillers lately, and this one sounds amazing!

Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark
I love MHC. I read my first book of hers in ninth grade. I want to read all of her works.

Silent Night by Mary Higgins Clark
I’ll save this one for this year’s holiday season!

Ford County by John Grisham
This is a series of short stories all set in Ford County, Mississippi! I’m kind of a sucker for books set in MS.

Before I Say Goodbye by Mary Higgins Clark
Maybe I should buddy read some of these with my mom. I bet she’s read them all though.

Kitchen Privileges by Mary Higgins Clark
I love memoirs so of course I’d like to read about Mary!

When Chicken Soup Isn’t Enough by Suzanne Gordon
This is another book I think I have read but could stand a reread.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Isiguro
The synopsis of this kind of reminds me of Girls With Sharp Sticks. I loved that story so I definitely want to give this one a try!

Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler
I think Chelsea is so funny, and I love books like this!

5th Horseman by James Patterson, Maxine Paetro
This sounds great. Mystery involving a hospital and angel of death. But does this series need to be read in order?

6th Target by James Patterson, Mazine Paetro
This one also sounds good. I may as well add the whole series…

✘ What I Deleted ✘

Til Death Do Us Part by Kate White
Good premise, but it’s a cozy and I have to really be in the mood for those. Plus it is #3 in a series.

A Place Called Home by Lori Wick
Girl gets death threats and moves to little no where town. But it’s not a mystery or thriller! It’s a chick fic.

A Song for Silas by Lori Wick
Book two from the series.

Bungalow 2 by Danielle Steel
A typical Steel novel, chick lit fiction.

Late Bloomer by Fern Michaels
I thought about keeping this one, but reviews were meh, so I decided to delete it.

The Rainmaker by John Grisham
I have to really be in the mood for a legal drama. They’re just not my jam.

The Brethren by John Grisham
Another legal drama.

Crown Jewel by Fern Michaels
Another chick lit that just doesn’t sound like it’s for me.

The Revelation by Beverly Lewis
We all know how I feel about Amish stories…

Cat and Mouse by James Patterson
I love FBI, but I’m not a huge fan of books like these. Plus it’s #4 in the series.

Roses are Red by James Patterson
Same as above, but this is #6.

London Bridges by James Patterson
Number 10 in the series.

Mary Mary by James Patterson
Number 11 in the series.

Whelp. That didn’t end how I thought it would. I kept way more than I thought. The most surprising were the James Patterson and John Grisham.

I’m ending my tbr at 1811. I was really hoping to make it under 1800. I may have to do a bonus post later this week!

What did you think of my choices? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments below!

📚 Down the TBR Part 17! 📚

Hey guys! Another week gone by. Hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing!

These past two weeks have been so hard on me mental health wise. The stress of getting screened before work, work hours being cut, but still having to go because I’m essential. It’s all a lot. I haven’t read as much as I wanted, and I haven’t blogged as much as I wanted either. Hopefully soon I will get into the routine of a new normal (for now). It hasn’t all been doom and gloom, thought! I’ve gotten to spend a ton of time with my son and I am taking all I can get! He will be three in a few months and I just want to cherish every moment with him.

Anyway, to this week’s tbr! We are starting at 1843. I don’t think I added any this week! Probably because I haven’t been as active on here or twitter, haha! Also, my life has become consumed with Animal Crossing. Let me know if you want to be friends. I have peaches!

✔ What I Kept ✔

Sizzle and Burn by Jayne Ann Krentz

This sounds like a spicy romance with a little bit of crime solving mixed in. And witches.

Night by Elie Wiesel

I think I’ve read this before, but I’ve always been drawn to books about the Holocaust. I’m not sure why.

Granny Dan by Danielle Steel

I’ll give this one a chance. There’s some historical romance aspects that are intriguing to me.

✘ What I Deleted ✘

The Extraordinary Adventure of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey

I love this cover, but the synopsis just isn’t speaking to me.

The Untelling by Tayari Jones

Eek. Just a little too chick lit for me.

Beneath the Surface by Anne White

A mystery, which I’d usually love. But something about it seems off-putting, I just can’t put my finger on what it is.

The Wedding by Danielle Steel

My mom loves Danielle Steel. I just don’t think I’m that into her work, though.

Nothing Can Keep Us Together by Cecily von Ziegesar

I hate I didn’t read these in my teen years. Now I just don’t know that I would like it.

A Painted House by John Grisham

I’m not sure I’ve ever read anything by John Grisham. This story just seems so… sad.

Playing for Pizza by John Grisham

I went back and forth with this one. It’s about a football player, which I think I would like. But moving to Italy and playing football there… I just don’t know about it.

Impossible by Danielle Steel

Just another typical chick lit romance.

Sisters by Danielle Steel

Another very chick lit read.

Coming Out by Danielle Steel

I mean, same as above.

Nobody Else Has to Know by Ingrid Tomey

I think I own this book from years ago. But it just seems so sad. It may be my headspace right now, but I just can’t do sad books.

Big Girl by Danielle Steel

Another typical chick lit.

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

I mean… it’s Nicholas Sparks.

A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks

Again, Nicholas Sparks.

Family Blessings by Fern Michaels

Just another chick lit.

Amazing Grace by Danielle Steel

I almost kept this one. I may go back and add it. I can’t decide if it’s gonna be too chick lit or a good fiction novel.

Finders Keepers by Fern Michaels

This is about a two year old girl who was kidnapped. It’s just so sad. I can’t.

We are ending at 1826! So close to being under 1800! I only kept three, the most surprising to be the Danielle Steel novel.

Did I make any mistakes? Should I have kept any of these? Let me know in the comments below!

📚 Down the TBR Part 16! 📚

Happy Sunday guys! I hope we are all social distancing and staying healthy!

I had planned to do a couple bonus posts last week, but work was crazy, I was tired, and it just didn’t happen. So today we will tackle the next 20 books from July 15, 2015.

We are starting at 1854, two more than last week. Not as bad as I thought! Let’s dive right in!

✔ What I Kept ✔

Schindler’s List by Thomas Keneally

I feel like this is a classic and I’m not sure how I didn’t read it in school.

Day of the Dragon by Richard A. Knaak

I played WoW for so many years. I’d love to give the books a chance and learn more lore.

A Rose for Her Grave by Ann Rule

Ann, my queen. I love her and her true crime.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

I’m a sucker for historical fiction set in Paris. I gotta have it!

A Bone to Pick by Charlaine Harris

Book 2 in the series. It’ll stay if I like book 1!

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

I swear I’ve read this before, but I don’t really remember. Plus, it’s part of a series and I know I didn’t read the others.

You’ve Been Warned by James Patterson

I’ve never read a Patterson book before. This sounds interesting so I think I’ll give it a try!

The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie

I love Hugh Laurie. Love. It’s only right that I read his book.

Hot Number by Carly Phillips

Doesn’t look like a book I’d normally read, but I can get behind a sporty romance. This is also book #2, so I added book #1

✘ What I Deleted ✘

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down by Neta Jackson

I’ve deleted the rest of the series that was on my tbr. Just not the chick lit for me.

Gone by Lisa McMann

This is book 3 in a series. I read the synopsis for book 1 and it didn’t seem like something I would enjoy.

One Door Away from Heaven by Dean Koontz

I’m not a huge horror reader, and the synopsis didn’t grab me.

Damaged by Cathy Glass

I probably could have read this earlier in life. But I just can’t really read child abuse stories anymore – especially if they are true. It breaks my heart.

Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks

It’s Nicholas Sparks. Need I say more?

Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

Another child abuse story. I just can’t.

The Covenant by Beverly Lewis

Another Amish fic.

The Betrayl by Beverly Lewis

Book two to The Covenant

Demon Seed by Dean Koontz

Another horror that I just don’t think I’d be a fan of.

The Other Side of the Story by Marian Keyes

Honestly, this seems like a movie I’d watch, but I don’t think I’d enjoy reading it.

Jake, Reinvented by Gordon Korman

A Great Gatsby retelling. It didn’t pique my interest.

Okay, I deleted 11, so that brings my tbr to 1844 since I added 1. I’m pretty happy with my results this week!

Did I make any mistakes? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…
