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.

I was a bitch by Emily Ruben- review and release day

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:

Life could be much easier with your favorite movie character alive, isn’t it?

College freshman Liv is fan girl of the Starveil Movies. She can’t move from the theatre after she saw that her favorite character Spartan from Starveil movies dies. With little help from her best friend Xander she goes back home, but she doesn’t looks or feels right, she is mourning. Spartan is everything to her not just fictional character. Liv decides that the best she could do is to try bring back Spartan alive. She tries that with help of Xander.

This book makes me believe in the power of the social media and how powerful could be one person when her world is apart and she is determinate to bring that world back.

The story is in the modern world where internet and the social media rules. I really can’t imagine the world without internet. It is about Liv, young girl which is fan of Starveil movie. Everyone could understand Liv because we all are fan of some movie or book. But Liv is more than fan, she lives for that movie. I like how the story goes and I like because I learn great things about cons and fandom, which I didn’t know. I enjoy reading the story because the author’s writing brings the story so vivid and real and captivating.

Live is more than great character to me, she is so good developed and well described by the author that I feel like I had her near me. I like how she acts and I understand her sorrow about losing Spartan- the movie character.  I like that she is modest girl and that she is withdrawn she reminds me how I was in the past. Then I love how she goes straight on her feet to bring back her favorite character of the dead.

Xander is favorite character to me because he is little bit mysterious in his feelings that give him specialty and charm. He is good friend and supportive with Liv even when he thinks that she is not reasonable. Without him the book will be hollow.

I recommend this book to YA fans and to everyone who likes the good story about passion, fandom and friendships.

Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie Olsen





Title: Awakening Foster Kelly
Author: Cara Rosalie Olsen
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Young Adult
Pages: 672 (kindle)

Buy this book here: Amazon







My Review:

     The story goes around Foster, her thoughts, fillings, doubts and her introversion, her fears of connecting with people. The story doesn’t go in one straight line, but the author tell us about the things in the past with flash backs which brings with Foster’s memories.
      Foster is teenage girl she is going in high school. She is shy, without self esteem, invisible, but also she is sensitive and smart. Foster is no ordinary girl, but she things for herself that she don’t belong anywhere , she is afraid to talk with other people, because she things that if she tells the true or maybe if she tells what she want she will insult them or she will be ashamed.
     
    The author has done great job writing this such an extraordinary book, bringing to us those thoughts and fears which every one of us has in one moment in our pastwhether it be in our teenage years or later during our youth. When I reading it I tough that it is such a huge book, but while I turn the pages I begin to realize that it suppose to be, cause I don’t read, but I felt the words written on those pages. Let me explain you what I mean, every event or even every Foster’s thought is really great explained with great description that you have a filing that you are there. I could pick one scene of the book that I like it more of the others that is Foster with her mother in the garden of her parents. I pick this scene because of description of the garden and the flowers in it, such a colorful and peaceful place, I just want to be there. The end of the book is unexpected and unusual; I could tell you just one word “Whoa”; this makes the book more extraordinary and defines the circle.

Amazon, GoodReads

My review:

           “One day you’re up…”-that sentence opens room for much thoughts, and that sentence can be completed in many ways with different end. First sentence of this book was this sentence, which makes my brain completely in mess, I make different end of this book but through reading I was surprise several times.
       This is story about Betsy Butters. She must goes in school in Switzerland and makes new fresh beginning. How to do that when everything is deferent: the language, friends and places?
Very soon Betsy will fall in web of intrigues and that makes this book much interesting. Till Betsy comes Chateau Mont Blanc was the best school for girls in Europe without violations of rules by the students. Very important artifacts was stolen and guess what will happen next.
     Betsy is simple girl maybe naïve. I don’t like how that her naivety brings her in danger.
    Madame Gastang is directress of the school. She is example of authority.
This book is maybe handbook for young girls how they must not trust anyone.
This book is:
