Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. The only thing is: But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago—no matter how monstrous. The story is however intriguing and I really loved the way the author brought elements of fantasy and fairytale into what could be just another murder mystery. The story is told from the point of view of Brynn and Mia, the girls believed to be responsible for killing their best friend Summer. It begins in the present as Mia discovers something that could be a clue to what happened back then and seeks out Brynn so they can start their own investigation. This is interspersed with flashbacks to five years previously to shed light on the relationship between the three girls. Each was messed up back then and is even more messed up now that the whole country seems to be blaming them for the murder. These two girls, who were children at the time, are dehumanized and subject to unending abuse and threats including by adults who really should know better.
Dating You _ Hating You – Christina Lauren
Lauren was doing neuroscience research at a pharmaceutical company. Christina was working with teenagers in a junior high counseling office. When we left our jobs to write, people were excited for us, but there was always the unspoken question: How can you call yourselves feminists and write romance novels? People misunderstood why we left our jobs, with some hilariously assuming we had left to make pornographic films; in their heads, writing romance and making porn were that tightly connected.

So excited to share! I ended the year reading 4 books in December and here are those reviews: Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline This book had us at hello! This was a book club pick and we were all literally hooked from the beginning. It grabs you from the start, and you just have to know what is going on with the characters. I gave it 4. It lost a half star simply because some parts were a little too clean and zipped up for reality but it was great nevertheless.
Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand Guys! This is one of my favorite authors and the Winter Trilogy Winter Street, Winter Stroll, and Winter Storms she wrote was so sweet, so heartwarming, so festive at Christmastime, and the characters were so likeable. I had my mom read it last year, and she loved it too.
And then this year — omg, there was this fourth book! I was so excited.

Description The heart may hide, but it never forgets. Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos – the first and only love of her life – the careful bubble she’s constructed begins to dissolve. Once upon a time, Elliot was Macy’s entire world – growing from her gangly teen friend into the man who coaxed her heart open again after the loss of her mother.
Told in alternating timelines between Then and Now, teenage Elliot and Macy grow from friends to much more – spending weekends and lazy summers together in a house outside of San Francisco reading books, sharing favourite words, and talking through their growing pains and triumphs. As adults, they have become strangers to one another until their chance reunion. Although their memories are obscured by the agony of what happened that night so many years ago, Elliot will come to understand the truth behind Macy’s decade-long silence, and will have to overcome the past and himself to revive her faith in the possibility of an all-consuming love.

Last year, I had an accident and was off for two months. During my time off, they had three different people try to fill in one particular job and all three quit or transferred out because the work was simply “too hard”. So, when I returned to work, the job I had was filled by another and I was placed in a job no one wanted. I was assured that I would be returned to my old job as soon as they hired a replacement. During this time, the workplace bullies showed up. The first guy, on a major day of business, showed up drunk and hungover and could not fulfill his obligations on his position.
He just kind of sat down and hung out. His work was substandard, at best. I filled in and made the job work , not saying a word. Just doing my job. My boss thanked me for doing a good job. After this incident, this person became more and more prideful over simply accomplishing his job. Patting himself on the back, bellowing his “simple” accomplishments, but yet, seemed to be needing assistance and then saying “I knew that”.

Because every big idea in the last years has launched in an op-ed , which is words, so how could you need more? I have been preaching this rule for years.

Beautiful Bastard Beautiful Bastard 1 21 Author: The second those gold doors closed I wished I were anywhere but standing next to him. Was there suddenly less oxygen in here? As I glanced at his reflection in the polished doors, it was hard to tell how he felt. Other than the constant clenching of his sharp jaw and his downcast eyes, he looked completely calm. When we reached the eighteenth floor, I let out a giant breath. That had to have been the longest forty-two seconds of my life.
I followed him through the door, trying to keep my eyes off him as he quickly entered his own office. He always closed his door. I quickly checked my messages and wrapped up a few last-minute details before I could leave for the weekend.

Their uniquely hilarious and touching voice has made them a go-to read for anyone seeking a book that reflects the experiences and challenges of a woman looking for love. Though both Hobbs and Billings are long married, they turned to a Google questionnaire they shared with fans on their Facebook page to gather extensive information and anecdotes about everything in the online dating world, from true horror stories to happily-ever-afters.
Check out the cover and our conversation with Christina Lauren below. This story deals directly with the woes of online dating. Why was that something you wanted to tackle? It felt a little clunky because we had to do so much research into the different types of dating apps and how it really worked in real situations.
We put out a questionnaire to our Facebook group, and we got like 40 different responses from women. It was really helpful and fun. Did you encounter a lot of horror stories, and did any of them end up in the book?

I did it when I discovered reverse harem fantasies a few months ago — though I haven’t had much luck with that genre since — and I did it again when I realized I like what is generally referred to as chick lit. Hey, I know what I like, but at least I’m branching out some, right? Except that Katie is kind of a cheater — just kissing but still, I don’t condone that. But then Tommy Tom, now comes back into her life and rocks her world with a kiss to make you forget all other kisses and an ultimatum to boot, and she decides to come clean And she’s told a lot of lies — even if by omission.
Witty, refreshing, and fun, I definitely enjoy Meg Cabot’s young adult novels just as much as her adult stories. Maybe because I didn’t get to it right away and then I put it off some more because I was sure it couldn’t be as good. Definitely different but set in the same world as TRC, just maybe a decade few years or so later. Familiar faces and familiar places but also new characters you’ll care for just as much.
I hope to review this in full soon, but suffice it to say, my expectations were surpassed. And I love the hate-to-love trope, but I’ve definitely seen it done better.
