Format: eGalley

Series: Standalone

Category: Young Adult

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart?

Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.

She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.

Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.

He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.

Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?

Readers who love Sarah Dessen will tear through these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver’s father’s crime. Full of romance, coming-of-age emotion, and heartache, these two equally compelling characters create an unforgettable story.

This has got to be in my favorites for 2015. I had so much fun reading Emmy & Oliver, I don’t usually get to read awesome fluffy stories, but this-I gotta recommend it to you. This is actually the first time I’ve read from Robin Benway and she certainly caught my interest, I’m very intrigued with her (more…)

Find Me Book Tag featuring my photography skills

Thanks to Latte Night Reviews for tagging me 3 months ago but I never got a chance to do it. I was so excited to post this feature, but I had a hard time looking for books that fit the following categories, it was tiresome…but fun!

The rules:

  1. Find books that fit the category.
  2. You don’t have to use photography, you can just use the covers.
  3. Tag as many people as you want but they are not obligated to do it.
  4. Link back to Novel Ink. (The creators of the tag)

Book with the word “Gone”

This actually this isn’t my copy of Gone but my brother’s. It was his book report but he never bothered to read it, I never did either. (more…)

Confess by Colleen Hoover

Confess

Confess

Format: Paperback

Series: Standalone

Category: New Adult

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Intense Drama

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a new novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies. 

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

#1 Confession

I’ve realised that I’m actually very biased when it comes to Colleen Hoover’s books. I’ve always loved her writing and I have every single one of her books so my review might be a little tricky since there wasn’t one book that I disliked from Colleen. (more…)

Book and Borders Cafe was all about books and tea. I’ve always had the idea of opening my own cafe for bookworms, I recently discovered this cafe through someone else. It’s not that popular since it’s a small shop, but it definitely gives you the warm and welcoming vibe. It was just awesome having lunch there with my friends. It’s a felicitous place for reading and also studying, so I’ll take advantage of that.

I’ve been invited to another interview session, but this time it’s with Leigh Bardugo. Thank you so much National Bookstore for sponsoring another great event. Did you know her name is actually pronounced like Lee. I’ve been saying it wrong for all these years. I’m very ashamed, but at least we share the same my-name-is-always-mispronounced problem.
