review: But I wanted a little sister by Pauline Oud

But I Wanted a Little Sister by Pauline Oud

5 this is one of the best books stars...

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review...

This by far is one of my favorite children's books. I think any child would love to hear or read this book if they have any siblings.

This story is about a girl who was upset that her mother brought home a brother instead of a sister. She started to put her brother's hair in pig tails and dressing him in her doll's clothing. He was able to make beaded necklaces and also draw pictures with her.

The only problem was when her brother got bigger she wasn't able to dress him up and her mother cut his hair. There was only one solution was to return her brother to the store to get a little sister. This little girl learned a big lesson when everyone who was going to go give her their sibling she found out they had flaws. All of the other little sisters did not do the things that her brother loves to do. So she realized that her brother was prefect just the way he is...

review: Jilly's Terrible Temper Tantrums: And How She Outgrew Them by Martha Pieper

Jilly's Terrible Temper Tantrums: And How She Outgrew Them

2 we didn't fit stars....

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review..

This children's book was. Not for me. My two year old daughter was not interested in the pictures or the plot of the story. This story would be more for adults, but then I wouldn't understand the stucture of the story.

This story is about Lilly who is a kangaroo and there are 4 different stories where she throws a tantrum when she doesn't get her way. What I do not like about this story is how the parents do anything to make this girl happy. Just doesn't show true values about children and how to deal with tantrums.

review: Between the stars and sky by David James

Between the Stars and Sky by David     James

3 I was not impressed stars....

Well, I got this book from the library with high hopes. I was not a fan, but decided to finish the book because I know all books can start very slow.

They story is a love story, but not all love stories are happy. This is one of them. There is a lot of poetry in this book. Also, the amount of heartbreak in this story was unreal..

This story is about a boy named jackson. He is a lost soul. He lost his mother and cannot get over the grief. He is not talking to his father because they both cannot come to terms that his mother is gone. ( this mind you took me forever to figure out what exactly did he lose).

Jackson ends up moving back to his home town to start over. His home town is based on the firelight festival. This major event is based off the founder of the town and his love story. That story is really cute and a great foundation for the yearly party that they hold. After that party they have a routine that people jump off the cliff for love. the whole idea of not making it out alive is what brings people to want to do it.

Jackson will want to face his fears and make that jump. A long lost girl from his past will come back to his life and he is crushed when she does not remember him. will he get the girl? Can this girl break him from his dark place? I will have to remind you this book you can tell what is going to happen, but you also hope what you are thinking doesn't happen...

review: Killer (pretty Little Liars # 6) by Sara Shepard

Killer (Pretty Little Liars, #6)

4 things start to get real stars....

I can't even tell you how long it has been since I actually got to finish a book! I finally am back in the game :)

Well, I am stupid and decided to watch the ABC Family version of this series. I have to say that if you didn't read these books yet and you watched the show you will be lost. It was close until the last book. Everything is different and at first I was very angry, but now I am really excited that I honestly, have no idea how things are going turn out!

This book continues where the others have left off. Spencer is still trying to gain the love of her family after she stole her sister's paper and won that award. She is convinced that she is adopted and decided to get in touch with this website that helps mothers find their children. She went to new York to met her supposed mother, and things start to get every exciting from there.

Aria will have a lot of drama in this book. She is starting a new relationship which I will NOT give away, lets just say she finally gets what she wants, but is it really what she wants?! She will move out of her mothers house and into her fathers house with his girlfriend who is having a baby. She was not happy about it, but she was getting the moves put on her by her mom's new boyfriend and she did not have the heart to tell her mother. She will uncover a huge secret when she stumbles across major evidence in the disappearance of Ali. Something major happens in the end of this book and Aria will be a huge part of it!

Hannah is still fighting with her soon to be step sister Kate. She is in school and friends with her worst enemy's. Kate and Hannah will start to fight over a boy in her school and it turns into a full out contest to see who can land the guy. The funny thing about this is that this boy is playing both of them, and the end results is just as funny. You can most likely guess what is going to happen, but I will not ruin it for you. Hannah thinks she is smart because she buys a new phone with a private number and has not received any messages from "A" yet. She try's to tell the rest of the girls that they should do the same thing. She still cannot win with her dad, and is trying to get him to love her as much as he loves her step sister.

Lastly was Emily. Her story this time is not as exciting but she still has a lot going on. She is back, and is trying to prove to her parents that she has changed. She is now dating a guy. NO, seriously she is dating a guy and is pretty happy about it. He does not go to their school, and she met him at church. The only problem is that his mother hates her. She makes a lot of horrible comments to her while they eat supper, and even confronts her at a restaurant. This might go down hill, but she wants to tell her new boy toy what is going on. Do you think this relationship is going to last? She will start to fight with the girls when she sees Jason and officer walden in weird locations and when she puts her theory out there for her friends, it starts a nice fight.

this book ends in a cliff hanger so be prepared!

review: Stolen Angel ( singular obsession # 3) by Lucy Leroux

Stolen Angel by Lucy Leroux

2 not impressed stars..

alright, I have to say this book was not my favorite and I lost interest in the book half way through. I felt like I had to make myself finish it...

This book does not start off where any of the other two leave off. It does continue with Alex's friends.

Sergei was a multi-billionaire who ran his own companies. He was very business smart and knew what business he was going to buy or sell. He had to assistants who helped him with his day to day affairs. Tim was the one who did his scheduling and after work agenda. Ada was the one who wrote his business reports and prepped him for all of his meetings. It didn't help matters that he was in love with her. She always kept things so professional and never pushed for anything else to happen. Sergei waited one day till all of his workers left so he could kiss her. She didn't push away or complained so he knew what his next challenge was going to be.

Ada had a bad past. Her parents where hunted down and killed. She made it and her uncle is now helping her stay safe. Every couple months she would move and change her identity and start a new life. She was taking a risk staying at this job for as long as she is. The money was good, and she was treated good, so she was trying to her best to stay safe..

Then one night when Tim and Ada had to go with Sergei for a business trip she did was she said she wasn't going to do.. She got drunk. Sergei took it upon himself to take her out to dinner. One thing lead to the next and they ended up sleeping together. Sergei woke up and found tons of bruises on her and freaked out he left with no note or anything. Ada started to feel some type of way when she finally did wake up from her hangover. so she did what any girl would do.. she left..

When work returned Sergei treated Ada like shit. He even rubbed it in that he was going to see his wife. Tim Couldn't stand it because he was in love with Ada. Only if they knew what her real name was!! Ada was tired of being treated the way she did so she got a hold of her uncle and she was ready for her move.

No one knew what happen to Ada. Sergi got his team to find her and no one knew what happen to her. All they knew was she wasn't who she said she was.. He was going to find her. After what she pulled before she left, he owed her that..

Is Ada safe? how long can someone run before it is too late. Does she love her boss? lots of questions!

review: Calen's Captive ( A singular obsession # 2) by Lucy Leroux

Calen's Captive by Lucy Leroux

5 fairy loving stars...

I have to say I am really liking this series. This story does kind of leave off where the first one ends. The difference is that it is following another person.

Alex's best friend Calen cannot pick his family. His dad is a big Irish mob boss and has he share of spotlight news. Calen decided to go a different way. he has a successful business in opening dance clubs. he was going to be the straight and narrow. He doesn't really see or talk to his family because of the mob connections. One night he was walking around the club and he saw her.. He tried to follow her, but lost her. he has been looking through security footage since that night. He needed to find his fairy...

Maia is a graduate student. She was working on her research so she can finish her PHD. She was getting ready to leave the woods when she spotted that rare butterfly. She needed to take a time stamp picture with her phone so it can be counted in her lab. These butterfly's are not suppose to be living that far north and she was going to make sure it was documented. That was until she always walked off a cliff trying to get the best picture. She didn't realize that she was witnessing two gangsters burying a body. She tried running as fast as she could. If she could just make it to her car she would be safe.

These gangsters caught her and she thought she was going to be buried with that dead body. She was going in and out of conciseness when she found herself in a warehouse all tied up. These men where speaking Russian and she had no idea what was going on. There was an attractive man that was talking to them and stated that he wanted her as payment. She didn't know what that was suppose to mean.

Calen got talked into meeting the russian mob to discuss payment for a matter that killed a family member. He didn't want to get involved because he knows when you start helping it only gets worse. Well when they were talking number Calen saw a girl all tied up. if he wasn't mistaken he would have thought this girl is his fairy. he was going to have her..

Maia was all beat up and when she was at Calen's penthouse she didn't know what to think he kept saying he was going to keep her safe, but she is his now. She didn't want to be sold into the slavery market because she has never been with a man, nor has she kissed a man.

So these two will go back and forth getting to know each other and Calen letting her go back to work. He wants to get married, but Maia doesn't understand why he would like her. Just when things would start to go good with these two a bomb gets dropped.

The russians want their girl back. They have a sick game where they rape girls and cut them up at the same time. Maia was theirs. Calen really loves Maia, but when she finds out that Calen has a sick fairy fetish/collection could that be to much for her to stay. It doesn't help matters that maria look just like a fairy. Short, with orange hair, and small body.

Can these two work out their differences before the Russian try to get their girl? Will maia fall in love with Calen and have their happy ever after? Well, I cannot tell you because their are so many twist and turns in this book that i do not feel like spoiling them!

review: making her his ( a singular obsession # 1) by Lucy leroux

Making Her His (A Singular Obsession, #1)

5 its a step-family romance

This was such a great book. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series...

This story had be stuck from the start. Alex was a rich billionaire who was taking over his fathers business. he was not happy that he was getting married to an american. he still was not over his mother's death and the thought of a gold digger living at the house was disheartening. His step sister who he thought was a little weird turned out to be a very in shape, smart, girl. Elynn had a passion for different mushrooms and was going to get her PHD for it. He knew after that one brunch dinner that he was going to make her his.

Elynn does not have a good background. She suffered a horrible traumatic past with a guy she went to high school with and he almost killed her. Since his family was also wealthy and had connections in america he did not get in trouble and she was worried that he would find her now. She had no idea that Alex was keeping her safe from the beginning. 

Alex decided when Elynn was 21 that it was time to make her his. He continued their brunch dinners as a family and even started talking to her more when he was out for business. He even got rid of his movie star girlfriends because he wanted her to know that he was serious.

Elynn never had a serious boyfriend before, and Alex was going to be her first and last. These two hit it off right off the back and then smuttyness just came into with this book. Lots of hot sex scenes and it just kept getting better from there.

that was until Elynn old attacker would come back into the mix and change everything...!!
