My review:

Madison seems like an ordinary girl, but she is more than that. She is kind of celebrity in the blogging world with millions of followers who like everything that she writes about her favorite movies. Behind the cover of her blog, Madi is supportive and protective sister, who even displaces absent parent in her sister’s live.

Internet Famous is a sweet, sensational and touching story about young girl Madison. The story keeps my interest till the end; mainly I wanted to know who the hacker is and what will happen with Madi and Laurent.  I like that the author brought my feelings from cold to hot when she tells about Madi’s parents and the situation I was nervous, I wanted to slap Madi’s mother. Parts were Madi, and Laurent showed up or was Madi’s blog in focus I felt warm in my heart.

Madi is the adorable girl she must deal with all barriers which her life brings. She is an introvert yet a famous blogger. The absence of her mother makes Madi’s life complicated, and her father doesn’t help much.

Laurent is an exchange student from France with whom Madi communicates thinking that he is a girl, but when they see each other, there are sparkles.

I recommend this book to young people who want to read the exciting, captivating and swoony story.

My review:

Lacey was waking from two months coma after a terrifying accident, and she thought that she was sixteen. Her parents looked older that she remembered them. Trying to comfort her they told her the truth that she was eighteen, and they mentioned Derek, her boyfriend, but nothing helped, she didn’t remember anything of it even her boyfriend. Day by day she was discovering that she was a Queen Bitch in her high school and couldn’t remember who Derek was and why she was her girlfriend, considering that he was the most attractive and gorgeous young man.

How she become the most popular girl in the school, how that was possible she got thousands of likes and followers on FB when she was an ordinary girl, unpopular almost invisible girl in an entire city or that was in the past, two years ago.

I had struggled which book to pick up to be my next currently-reading and saw this book in my inbox marked like an arc. After I had read incredibly romantic and the unforgettable book I was a Bitch seemed to me like an ordinary and straightforward YA book, but I was wrong it was much more it was “read at first sight.” This book is intelligent and well plotted filled with many surprises which made me reading till the end. Surprisingly this book is a debut to Emily Ruben. I found her tone dramatic and narrative which was keeping me awake till the early morning hours. The book wrote in the first person, and the story told in Lacey point of view.

Lacey was a strong, very smart girl and fighter. When she discovered that she had partial amnesia kept that in secret from the others, except her parents and her brother and while Lacey is trying to find out who she was, I enjoyed in suspense. Lacey was the character that gave me a reason to read till the end and cared about her.

I recommend this book to everyone who liked After series by Anna Todd and Did I Mention series by Estelle Maskame.

The publisher provided this book, thank you, David.

My rating 5/5(amazing).

My review:

     The unexpected visit makes Alexandra, 25 years old woman half English half Spanish, to leave her old little bit boring life in England and goes to Spain. After twenty years her father visits Alexandra and leads her to the family house El Pavon in Spain. Alexandra needs materials for her new book, besides she wanted to meet the rest of her family. She doesn’t hesitate to go there and meets her strict grandmother, her stepsister, her stepmother and her cousins, also to spend much time with her father. She looks forward to meeting all of them and maybe to understand why her mother deserted her life in Spain. Spain is very unusual and beautiful country Alexandra learn many things and fall in love there. Trapped in Spanish culture filled with superstitions and intrigues her journey becomes an adventure. 
   The book is settled in the fifties in Spain, country of beautiful landscapes, interesting culture, superstitions and intrigues of gypsy people. In almost five hundred pages the author literally draws the whole story in tiny details. Every scene, every move and every atmosphere where were main characters are well, too well described. I sensed every fragrance of Spain, I imagined every beautiful landscape every place there, I felt every feeling that main characters feel and I enjoy in every single word written by Hannah Fielding. 
    It’s been just one day since I’ve read this book and believe me I miss it badly. I’ve learned so much about Spain and old customs there in the fifties. I’ve put the name of this country in my “to visit”list.
   I highly recommend this book.

My review:

    Tess is tired from moving almost every year. In her senior year she must moves again because her father say so, she hopes that this is for last time. Tess parents are divorced; she lives with her father, military veteran with minimal salary. Tess’s mother lives in California with her new family. First day to new school and Tess meets some guy Drew, she doesn’t like to make friendships, but destiny has another plan for her. For the teachers Tess and Drew seams as perfect partner Tess is kind of rebel girl with potential and Drew is great student. Drew will bring some freshness in Tess gray life and forgotten memories also.

    I like this book, because I’m not used to read books with violence, I deliberately avoid that kind of book, but this book was different and I’m not regretting that I read it. The author descriptions for events in book is very subtly and pleasant.

    Tess is rebel girl, she has her reasons for that, also she has a potential for be better student and girl.
Drew is perfect boy, great student and mannered, kind and supportive. Both of them are confused about their future, about what they want to be, what they want to study. It’s typical for their age, but also that was because their fathers, both of them veterans and demanding and strict.


It was interesting to read about people destiny and how everything it’s going around as perfect circle.

My review:
       Max, on ten years, wants to play in river with his friends Amy, James and other kids,sometimes but rarely Amy’s older sister, Margo join them. They enjoy swimming in the river flew alongside the forest to the sea.
Max think that Amy is cute and has some unfamiliar feelings when she is near him. James is rich and spoiled kid, he wants to mocks other kids, especially those who are weaker of him and he wants Amy to admired to him. The years pass by and they are not kids anymore and they didn’t share the same things anymore…
       
        I read this book quickly and I don’t want to jump to conclusions, so I wait a little bit to think again about the book and my opinion is that this is great book. It’s not easy there a described many years, there are many characters and many diferent points of life. I like how the author describes love on diferent age and how diferent people experiencing and manifest love, or what some people do for love. There are topics as family and friendships.
        
        I like Max, he is very strong character, I like his descriptions and thoughts of the others characters in the book. I was sorry for him and his mother when his father was angry.
I don’t like James as kid, but I feel sorry for him when he grow up as very immature and vicious young man.
I don’t know if I like Amy or not, in some part of the book I like her very much in other I don’t know, but that is a stage of life which everyone must past.
