Title: It Ends With Us

Author: Colleen Hoover

ISBN: 9781501110368 (Paperback)

Expected Publication: 02 August 2016 by Atria Books

Pages: 320

Lily hasn’t always had it easy but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up. She graduated from college, moved to Boston and started her own business so when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon name Ryle Kincaid everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true. Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant and has a total soft spot for Lily and the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his no dating rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan, her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

Happy reading!

A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab

Kell is one of the last Travelers—rare magicians who choose a parallel universe to visit.

Grey London is dirty, boring, lacks magic, ruled by mad King George. Red London is where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London is ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. People fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. Once there was Black London—but no one speaks of that now.

Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell smuggles for those willing to pay for even a glimpse of a world they’ll never see. This dangerous hobby sets him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She robs him, saves him from a dangerous enemy, then forces him to another world for her ‘proper adventure’.

But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive—trickier than they hoped.

Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race.

What if the person you were falling for was a total mystery?

While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she’s flustered — and kind of feels like she’s falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer — but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?

Thursday. It means last day of work. It means I can stay late at night. It means I don’t have a work the following day. The best day of the week.

I finished Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover, 2 book of Slammed series, last night. I really enjoyed this book. I love every minute reading those suck and sweet, twist and turn moments. I love most of the passages. Here are some.

“Butterfly you.”

 

“Sometimes things happen in life that you didn’t plan for. All you can do is suck it up and start mapping out a new plan.”

 

“Love is the most beautiful thing in the world. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the hardest things in the world to hold on to, and one of the easiest things to throw away.”

Wonder by RJ Palacio

You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

My name is August. I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

August Pullman wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things. He eats ice cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary – inside.

But Auggie is far from ordinary. Ordinary kids don’t make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids don’t get stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, he’s being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted – but can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all?

This will be my 2nd book for #2books5days challenge. I need to finish this until 4th of March.

Black Crow White Lie By Candi Sary

A story of young Carson Calley. He has a rare and magical gift of healing, a gift which both defines him and threatens to betray him. He lives in Hollywood motels with his alcoholic, fortune-telling mother, Juliette. She nurtures his gift, but her ways are deceptive. She feeds the boy fantastical stories to convince him of his greatness. At fourteen, Carson finally wises up to her lies and his identity is completely shattered. Juliette is too deep in her addiction to help him separate the facts from the fictions, so he looks for answers on the streets of Hollywood. There he finds Faris, a tattoo shop owner, and Casper, a cashier at a head shop. These two unlikely mentors help this troubled yet extraordinary boy find his way to the truth.

Until next week! Ciao.

Current read: Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour

This is a cover-buy book. Isn’t it so beautiful and lovely and pretty??! After reading few pages, I learned that this is a LGBT book. What?? Darn! Hmp! Nothing personal but this kind of books aren’t my top priority reads for now. tsk! Please don’t hate me for my reaction. I’m just being honest. Haha! The cover is so sexy and I love it that’s why I decided to read it. I’m halfway through right now and Nina LaCour put some love potion in the middle of this book because I’m falling in love with the story..! Yes! I love it. We’ll see if I will love it ’till the end.

Recently finish: Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

OK. I gave 4 stars. The story is well-written. I didn’t give perfect 5 because I’m not comfortable with the relationship of Lochan and Maya. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it as well.
