My review of Promise You won't Tell?:

This was very different from how I thought it would be but is nonetheless amazing. And FREE on Amazon :) I'd say it's more New Adult than YA.

My review of White Trash Beautiful

More YA than NA, but that's based on the quality of the writing.

Book Title: Neworld Papers Series 1: The Historian's Tale
Genre: NA Science Fiction

Unilimted review copies of Neworld Paperscan be downloaded in MOBI format for FREE June 28 & 29

Is revealing the truth worth the disruption of a society?

Fallon is a young man with special talents and the willingness to explore. He lives in a peaceful world that has no concept of war, or murder, or even love. It is a society that prohibits histories and pledges itself to "The Service of Today and the Building of Tomorrow."

Fallon is torn from his sheltered life and drawn into a subversive group where he becomes a chronicler of discoveries that threaten to destroy the very fabric of Neworld.

Neworld Papers Series 1: The Historian's Tale is a coming-of-age story for not only Fallon, but an entire world. It has action, adventure, and romance grounded solidly in thoughtful science fiction that will have readers talking.

Selling Scarlett (Love Inc., #1) by Ella James

'As she puts the earrings on me, I feel a sense of total peace. And okay, it evaporates as soon as they leave the room and a little speaker on the bed tells me I'd be live in two minutes. But before that moment, I feel valued and loved. Here in a brothel.'

Relentless (Shattered Hearts, #1) by Cassia Leo

'These jagged lies I've told myself for the past year have rested comfortably beneath the delicate skin of truth. I can't allow them to pierce through to the surface. I can't allow myself to become a bloody mess again.'

Bring Me Home (Shattered Hearts, #3) by Cassia Leo

'I've endured the stench and agony of my mother's death. I've battled the loneliness of not having a home. I've survived willingly having over a piece of my soul to two complete strangers after losing the love of my life. I will survive this.'

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

'It's crazy how being held by someone for just a few minutes can forever change how it feels not to be held by him. The second he releases his hold on you, it suddenly feels as if a part of you is missing.'

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

'Sometimes a man's spirit just ain't strong enough to withstand the ghosts of his past. Maybe that boy just lost his spirit along the way.'

Blessie (Mischievous Reads) (mischievousreads) | 2 comments Review: Icy Pretty Love by L.A. Rose

Icy Pretty Love by L.A Rose

Rating: 4 Stars

I'd have to say, prior to reading this book, the title and blurb had been quite misleading, but despite that, I wasn't at all disappointed at how the story flowed throughout.

L.A. Rose has released another hilariously adorable romance and puts together two characters of equally different personalities together into an adorably romantic Paris love affair...

Devi Nair (views_she_writes) Joshua's Island Joshua's Island by Patrick Hodges

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Check out the complete review at Joshua's Island

The book raises a social issue very pointedly and nicely and asks the reader to look around and identify signs of bullying among children. Bullying is as much a social issue as child abuse and should not go UN-punished. The people responsible should be penalized to a high extend and the victims should be given intense counseling to overcome the stigma associated with bullying.

"Though Joshua’s Island is a work of fiction, the sad truth is that bullying remains a large problem in many schools around the country and around the world.
If you or someone you know is a victim of bullying, speak up. Tell a parent, a teacher, a counselor, a friend, any adult that you trust. Only by letting others know about it can you help make sure that it stops. Remaining silent only lets the cycle of abuse and violence continue.
Speak up. Be part of the solution." - Patrick Hodges
