Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments So, this week I have a birthday coming up!

My birthday is August 2nd and believe it or not, August 2nd is also known as National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!

For this week, I am asking you to read a book with a type of food or drink on the cover!

Have fun! Happy reading!

I'll read Too Hot To Touch (Rising Star Chef, #1) by Louisa Edwards (I really don't know what's he cooking out there, but he's cooking something (I think it's meat and something else... hmm) LOL damn HOT cover!) XD


message 22: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I can't decide, but I think it's between L.A. Candy (L.A. Candy, #1) by Lauren Conrad Shug by Jenny Han The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys, #1) by Abbi Glines

Any strong opinions?


message 23: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Thanks everyone! <3

Vicki, I haven't heard the best of things about L.A. Candy. I haven't read any of these but Shug is by Jenny Han and she is an awesome author! I have heard some good things about the Vincent Boys!


message 24: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments You know Shug is rated 4.8 on B&N and 4,7 on Amazon? Seems I can't go wrong there.

Thanks!


message 25: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Wow! Such high ratings! :)

You're welcome.


message 26: by Amanda (new)

Amanda  (manka23) I read Tear You Apart by Sarah Cross I definitely suggest it if you like re-tellings. It's still available on Netgalley.

OMG I'm dying to read that!!! So glad to hear it's good! :)


message 28: by Amanda (new)

Amanda  (manka23) Did you get it from NetGalley? I really liked it. It certainly got me interested in re-tellings.


message 29: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments I haven't requested it yet...but I just jumped on there! LOL! I want it! The first one...I loved it!
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross


message 30: by Amanda (new)

Amanda  (manka23) I WANT THAT SO BAD! I haven't read the first one! I need it. I'm glad it can be read as a stand alone, but now I need the first one. I hope she keeps writing more to this series.


message 31: by Adriana (new)

Adriana Stone | 357 comments I finished my book Sweetheartsfinished : 07/230 (3 stars)

It was good but not great. It was a nice simple read.

message 34: by Adriana (new)

Adriana Stone | 357 comments That's okay, I'm not going to like every book I'm going to read but it wasn't bad by any stretch.


message 35: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 2834 comments I finished my pick The Meryl Streep Movie Club by Mia March (1 star). And while my love of popcorn still remains, I didn't enjoy the book at all.

:(


message 36: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Oh no! Well congrats on finishing but so sorry you didn't like it!! :(

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Very true! Thank you! :)

Miodrag ★❥ | 897 comments Finished reading: Too Hot To Touch (Rising Star Chef, #1) by Louisa Edwards (4 stars) One good book. I will tell you this: Cover is really hot and book is hot too. But, I do not recommend reading this book if you are on diet... there's just too much good food-talk, I got hungry few times while reading it. Lol (Also at the end of the book you get some recipes :) mmmmmm) XD Definitely going to check other two books from this series! :)


message 40: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Congrats, Mio! LOL! Recipes in the back of the book? That is cool and unique!

Yes, it really is. There are three or four recipes at the end of the book. ^_^
