My Week of Reading (20 - 25 June 2016)

Hello There,

It's been a bit of a slow reading week. I managed to finish one book and start another...one that I haven't finished yet; the book that I'm currently reading is part of a series and I'm going to be posting the reviews for all of them in this week on Genuine Jenn.
Here is a review that I've carried over from last week's 'Week of Reading':
See You Soon Broadway by Melissa Baldwin: Amazon: Amazon Review - See You Soon Broadway Here is my blog review of the book: Blog Review - See You Soon Broadway
And then here is another review that I did; and this one I enjoyed, and had quite a bit to say about it. You can read the reviews down below:
All Access by Liberty Kontranowski: Amazon: Amazon Review - All Access Goodreads: Goodreads Review - All Access Here is my blog review of the book: Blog Review - All Access
It was nice to do some individual reviews on my blog again. I'll probably only do some more in July again.

Review - All Access by Liberty Kontranowski

My Copy of the Book
Blurb: Every fangirl has a fantasy . . . what happens when that “if only” dream comes true?  Though she’s a single mom wedged firmly into thirty-something territory, author Kallie Reagan’s devotion to rock star Niles Russell knows no bounds. To pay homage to her muse, Kallie writes a smokin’ hot novel featuring a hero who looks and acts an awful lot like Niles — and a heroine who may or may not have a smattering of herself thrown in for fun.  When Niles learns about the book and surprise-texts Kallie, the two deliciously complicated creatives become fast friends . . . and so much more. But trying to define a relationship that’s laced with closeted skeletons, half-truths, and constant question marks proves harder than making it big. If they’re going to progress from Fangirl Infatuation to The Real Deal, these two need to give each other All Access to the most important place of all: their hearts.

Blurb: Maris Forrester has a wonderful life with an amazing boyfriend and a fulfilling job. She’s happy and content . . . or so she thinks. Maris has always had huge dreams of being on Broadway. Ever since her very first performance as a child, she has envisioned herself on the stage under the shining lights. Now she has to decide whether she should to give up her wonderful life to chase those dreams.  When her parents announce they are moving, she comes across a long-lost family treasure. She doesn’t realize that this treasure may hold the key to her future and to all her dreams coming true.  And if that wasn’t sign enough, a mysterious stranger throws another wrench in the mix at a dazzling rooftop party benefiting the Arts. These could be signs of things to come.  But will she remain content in her perfect world, or will she step into the unknown world she has always dreamed of?

Review - Saving Abby by Steena Holmes

My Copy of the Book
Blurb: All children’s book illustrator Claire Turner ever wanted was to be a mother. After six years of trying to conceive, she and her husband, Josh, have finally accepted that she will never be pregnant with a child of their own. Yet once they give up hope, the couple gets the miracle they’ve been waiting for. For the first few months of her pregnancy, Claire and Josh are living on cloud nine. But when she begins to experience debilitating headaches, blurred vision, and even fainting spells, the soon-to-be mother goes to the doctor and receives a terrifying diagnosis. Since any treatment could put their unborn baby’s life at risk, the Turners must carefully weigh their limited options. And as her symptoms worsen, Claire will have to make an impossible decision: Save her own life, or save her child’s?

My Week of Reading (6 - 11 June 2016)

Hello Everyone,

Since I got myself a new kindle, I managed to finish 'Second Chances' by Lincoln Cole (and am going to be reading another one of his books soon), so I'll be posting that review on Genuine Jenn this coming week. I really ended up enjoying this book. I'll be posting the links in my next 'Week of Reading'.
The next book I started was the one that I requested on Netgalley, 'Saving Abby' by Steena Holmes, and so far, it's interesting. I'm hoping to finish this one before it goes into the archive gallery! A review for this will be coming on my blog this week!
I've also started looking very closely at my tbr for this month as well...and I've realized that I've put a lot on my plate. But I probably will get through my reading list; I'll just have to prioritize better (got to stop watching youtube videos!), since I've started working full day as well and don't have the time on my hands that I used to.
Last Word: Now I&#…

My Week of Reading (30 May - 4 June 2016)

Hello Everyone,

Here are my highlights for the week:
- I requested a book on Netgalley and got approved for it.
- I started another book for review.

The book that I got from Netgalley is 'Saving Abby' by Steena Holmes, and I saw this book due to BookSparks, as they are having their Summer Reading Challenge. I signed up, but then I didn't get chosen to review the books that they had for the month, but I at least managed to get hold of one of the books via Netgalley.
And then the book that I started this week on the 3rd of June was 'Second Chances' by Lincoln Cole. So far it's really good.
And then here are the reviews for 'Flying by the Seat of my Knickers' by Eliza Watson:
Flying by the Seat of my Knickers by Eliza Watson: Goodreads: Goodreads Review - Flying by the Seat of my Knickers Amazon: Amazon Review - Flying by the Seat of my Knickers Here is my blog review of the book: Blog Review - Flying by the Seat of my Knickers

Review - Flying by the Seat of my Knickers by Eliza Watson

My Copy of the Book
Blurb: Why run from your troubles when you can fly instead?  When Caity Shaw is fired from her first job that doesn’t require an elf uniform, her older sister, Rachel, an event planner, hires her to work a meeting in Dublin. Caity jumps at the opportunity to travel abroad and escape her pathetic life. However, even four thousand miles from home, there’s no avoiding debt collectors, an overbearing mother, and haunting memories of a controlling ex.  While in Dublin, Caity suffers a series of humiliating mishaps, causing her to lose even more faith in herself. Caity struggles to earn Rachel’s respect—and to keep Declan, her hot Irish coworker, at arm’s length. Declan repeatedly saves Caity’s butt and helps boost her self-confidence, making it difficult to keep her distance from the charming womanizer. When Declan helps her research her Irish grandmother, Caity discovers the mysterious past of the courageous woman she barely knew might hold the answers to her future.
