**spoiler alert** April 2-3 K. Ancrum's The Legend of the Golden Raven novella, part fairy tale and part gritty reality, follows a boy as he descends**spoiler alert** April 2-3 K. Ancrum's The Legend of the Golden Raven novella, part fairy tale and part gritty reality, follows a boy as he descends into madness.
August and Jack weren’t meant to be friends. One is a misfit with a pyro streak and the other a golden boy on the rugby team. But as their relationship intensifies, Jack slowly begins to lose his mind—taking readers on an intimate journey into the fantasy kingdom creeping into the edges of his world.
As the novella moves back and forth between a medieval legend and our own, contemporary world, nothing is as it seems. The boys alienate everyone around them as they struggle with their sanity and as Jack’s quest to fulfill a dark prophecy begins to consume them both . . .
Devour this companion novella to The Wicker King.
Review : this novella was very interesting it was from Jack's POV and we got to see what he saw and how he loves August and his fantasy world I enjoyed reading it .
Quotes : You’re the love of my life, you know,” he said bravely. ...more
Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan**spoiler alert** December 27-January 2
Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.
Review: This book is beautiful I love colleen Hoover's books and this is now one of my new favorites of hers it's so raw and beautiful. This is a duel POV book about a mother and daughter
Its starts out when morgan the mother figures out she's pregnant at 17 and she's at this party with her boyfriend his friend and her sister . There are these moments she has with Jonah that she feels something there . Then we get to where her daughter Clara is 16 and she is driving and sees this guy she has a crush on Miller and she gives him a ride home . Tragedy happens when there is a car crash Chris and Jenny were in a crash they were in the car together and they were having an affair Jonah and Morgan were at the hospital when they found this out they died and Morgan is crushed and hurt and doesn't know what to do . Clara spends her dad's funeral getting high with Miller her mom finds her and she's pissed . Clara is so angry at herself cause she thinks her aunt and father dying is her fault . Jonah snaps one day and brings Elijah his son to Morgan saying he cant do this anymore cause Elijah isnt his kid its Chris's kid what the hell . Clara knocks some sence in him and tells him to pick up his kid and Jonah does . Miller has a girlfriend but she ended up breaking up with him but then they get back together but Clara likes Miller but he keeps sending her these mix signals and she tells him to figure it out so he does and he breaks up with his girlfriend and him and Clara talk and kiss and they finally get together hes liked her since he was 15 . Jonah and Morgan have this moment again where they almost kiss . Miller and Clara work on film project together. Jonah kisses Morgan and clara walked in on them and thinks they were having an affair and then Clara calls Miller to have him come over cause she wants to have sex with Miller to make her mom angry I dont see the reasoning in that . Clara gets drunk and tells her mom she is the reason that her aunt and Dad are dead she asks clara the next day and Clara tries to hide back the tears but she tells her mom but Morgan told her that her dad was driving and then Clara asks why they were in the car together and figures it out they were having an affair she's angry and sad she asks her mom to drive her to Miller and she does Morgan goes back to the movie theater and talks with clara . Jonah and Morgan talk and are together officially and Elijah says his first word . Clara and Miller show there film and it's weird but funny and Jonah likes it . But then miller shows Clara his promposal and when he first fell in love with her it was sweet and adorable. Millers gramps has been joking he was leaving miller air but actually is air to land and he can go to his college he wants to now I loved this book .
Quotes:I wonder if humans are the only living creatures that ever feel hollow inside. I don’t understand how my body can be full of everything bodies are full of—bones and muscles and blood and organs—yet my chest sometimes feels vacant, as if someone could scream into my mouth and it would echo inside of me.
don’t know if Miller realizes what his attention (or lack thereof) can do to a person. When he looks at you, he does it in such a way that it makes you feel like the most interesting thing he’s ever seen. He puts his entire body into the look, somehow.
He’s got a sucker in his mouth, which isn’t unusual. I find his addiction to suckers amusing, but it also gives off a cocky vibe. I don’t feel like insecure guys would walk around eating candy as much as he does, but he always shows up to school eating a sucker and usually has one in his mouth at the end of lunch.
It’s unfair how one event . . . one second . . . can shake the world around you. Toss everything on its head. Ruin every happy moment that led up to that earth-shattering second.
He waves a hand toward Elijah. “He smiled for the first time tonight.” He pauses, as if what he’s about to say next is too painful to put into words. “Elijah—my son—has Chris’s fucking smile.”
For some reason, sadness in music eases the sadness in my soul. It’s like the worse the heartache in a song is, the better I feel. Dramatic songs are like a drug, I imagine. Really bad for you, but they make you feel good.
“I’ve never hated watermelon Jolly Ranchers. I only saved them because I knew they were your favorite.”
It makes me sad, because if there’s one thing Jonah Sullivan shouldn’t have to worry about, it’s the way I feel about him
“So? I guess you finally saw the video of when Miller fell in love with you?” I laugh and lean into Miller. “Your grandson is a romantic.” Gramps laughs. “No, my grandson is a nitwit. Took him three years to finally ask you out.” “Patience is a virtue,” Miller says....more
Please stop by my house and pick up your suit. If you thought I was going to run it to the dry cleaners for you**spoiler alert** Dec 24-27 Dear Santa,
Please stop by my house and pick up your suit. If you thought I was going to run it to the dry cleaners for you after you left it on my bedroom floor, you’ve got another think coming.
Best, Noel Winter
Review: I loved the last of this series it was really cute .Noel's coworker hired her brother to be Santa. An older lady at her work is trying to hook Noel with her grandson . So santa shows up and hits on Noel after they go for hot chocolate and then they hook up and she runs out of her own house oh god . Her coworker tells her she's sorry that her brother ditched on the Santa event and Noel is confused but it turns out the guy Noel slept with and liked was the womans grandson and his name is Theodore but lets Noel call him teddy and they decide to start dating . A year later ginger is married and pregnant Holly is engaged and Noel is wondering when Teddy is going to so she asks him and he proposes it was adorable. Quotes : It’s also clear why Jillian sent the Santa padding along with the costume because her brother does not have the body to play Santa. Unless it was a male stripper version of Santa—
I ask Teddy if I can see his North Pole
Perhaps I could hire him to be my sex elf, then he’d have a job and I’d have a sex elf. ...more
I will not fall for him, no matter how charming or irresistible or**spoiler alert** December 24
I do not want Keller James for Christmas.
I will not fall for him, no matter how charming or irresistible or famous he is. I will not be swayed by his skills in the kitchen or by his British accent. I’m going to win the Great Gingerbread Bake Off and no one is going to stand in my way. Not even Keller.
All kisses are off. I mean all bets. All bets are off. And his clothes, those are off too.
Grr, never mind. I’ll figure this out myself.
XOXO, Ginger Winter

Sweet Pillsbury Doughboy, this is my idea of porn. Keller James sitting before me, praising my baking. If my bakery plan falls apart I know what my next venture will be. Bakery porn. It'll be nothing but attractive men eating my cookies. The camera will zoom in as their tongues flicker over their lips, sweeping up every last morsel. They'll probably be shirtless too. I bet I can get subscribers to pay at least four ninety-nine a month for such a service.
I might have zoned out a little with my bakery porn scheme. Fine, I might also have been imagining him shirtless
I wasn't flirting. You were flirting." There. That'll show him. That I'm twelve. Way to spar, Ginger. "Oh, I was definitely flirting,"
Oh, for elf's sake. Did I really just say “single and ready to mingle?”
I'm having a lovely time. Thank you for inviting me, Ginger." "I didn't invite you," I remind him. "You invited yourself." "Oh, Gingersnap, you little flirt
Just because my dreams are smaller in nature doesn't make them any less important or valid.
I'm fairly certain that the only thing I'd enjoy more than bantering with you is kissing you." ...more
