Book Review: I Was a B*** by Emily Ruben

( I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads Summary: What if you woke up having forgotten the last two years of your life?

After a horrific accident Lacey Jones has to try piece together her shattered past. With no memory of the previous two years she finds herself in a relationship with a man she doesn’t know, and with a reputation for being the Queen Bitch of High-School. 

She decides to keep the secret of her memory loss until she can figure out what happened in these two years she lost, trusting only the mysterious and sexy Finn to help her, but will she continue being that bitch or will she decide to rewrite her story?

This was such a fun read. There were moments when I burst out laughing and there were moments when my heart broke. Lacy wakes up from a two month coma and can't remember anything from the previous two years. She learns that she was in a car accident and everything prior to that is a blur. She struggles to figure out things before the accident and hopes that some of the memories come back to her as well as coming to terms of the person that she had become.

I could not put this book down. I read it in two days and it could have been one. I was hooked from the beginning of the story all the way to the end. This is a good high school drama that has the typical atmosphere of the high school setting. If you liked mean girls you will love this book. Lacy was The Queen Bee of the school. She had the hot perfect boyfriend, two best friends that were her little minions, and every girl wanted to be her. The thing is the Lacy before the Queen Bee status was anything but that. She was quiet and mostly to herself and had best friends since childhood. 

She was such a strong character. She wanted to figure things out on her own with out much help and be her own person. She could not believe the person that she was or did the things that she did do. She changed a lot through out the story.

OMG Finn?!? Can I have him? He was perfect and so patient with Lacy. He had his own struggles to deal with but he put her before him. He is boyfriend goals....just saying. Their chemistry together was so beautifully written. I was hoping Lacy would come to her sense eventually.

The writing in this book was so good. I was hooked from the beginning. It wasn't rushed and the build up to the focus of the story was so good. I really loved the Epilogue.  I thought it rounded up things pretty nicely. I look forward to reading more works by this author. I think "fickle fackle" will be added to my vocabulary. I loved it. 

Rating 4.5 Stars

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…

June Wrap Up

So for this month I did really good and read a total of 11 books! Two of those books were on my original TBR and the rest I picked up as a I saw. Normally on average I read about 4 or 5 a month but my reading has really been doing good. So here is all I read for the month of June.

Most of these were 4 stars. I read more contemporary than any genre. Home and Away is a book for School Library Journal so unfortunately I cannot share that review at this time. Have anyone of you guys read any of these topics?
