"Waiting On" Wednesday / Can't-Wait Wednesday #32: One of Us Is Lying

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking The Spine.


Title: One of Us Is Lying
Author: Karen M. McManus
Publisher: Delacorte Press

Expected publication: May 30, 2017
Genres: Young Adult, Mystery, Contemporary

One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

Thursday Thrills 5/18/17


Happy Thursday Thrills!
We made it through another week and I can feel the weekend getting closer. Speaking of getting closer, This Thursday Thrill, consist of getting to know ecah other. I found 5 most asked questions (book related) and if you would like to answer some of the questions, leave a comment with your answers. Happy Thursday! 

1. Libraries or Bookstores?

Bookstores, shopping for books is my favorite thing to do.  

2. Hardcover or Paperback ?

Paperback, It's just so much easier and comfortable to read paperbacks. Hardcovers are used for display and pleasure lol. 


3. Hard copies or Ereaders? 


HARD COPIES please. (I like the smell of books). 


4. Bookmarks or Dogears?


Bookmarks, but sometimes I'm in such a rush I use the dogears. Guilty. 


5. New books or Worn Books?


New all the way, just because they have a nice fresh smell but I like a little worn to give it a vintage touch.

Hope you enjoyed these quick thrilly questions. 
Don't forget to answer the questions on the comments below so I can get to know you a little better.
Happy Readings

"Waiting On" Wednesday / Can't-Wait Wednesday #31: When It's Real

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking The Spine.


Title: When it's Real
Author: by Erin Watt 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Expected publication: May 30th
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, New Adult


From #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt comes the addictive contemporary tale of a teen rock star in need of an image makeover and the teen girl hired to be his fake girlfriend.

Meet Oakley Ford-teen celebrity, renowned pop star, child of famous movie stars, hottie with millions of fangirls… and restless troublemaker. On the surface he has it all, but with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley's team decides it's time for an intervention. The result: an image overhaul, complete with a fake girlfriend meant to show the world he's settled down.

Enter seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett-devoted sister, part-time waitress, the definition of "normal." Under ordinary circumstances she'd never have taken this gig, but with her family strapped for cash, she doesn't have much of a choice. And for the money Oakley's team is paying her, she figures she can put up with outlandish Hollywood parties and a team of publicists watching her every move. So what if she thinks Oakley's a shallow, self-centered jerk? It's not like they're going to fall for each other in real life…right?

"Waiting On" Wednesday #30:

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Title: When Dimple Met Rishi
Author: by Sandhya Menon
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Expected publication: May 30th
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance


A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways
