Summary: Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. And find a boy named Andrew Perish.

My Thoughts:

So I’ll say that I didn’t think this was a road trip book. However that’s what I got and LOVED IT. Anytime I’ve heard about this book I knew Camryn has some issues along with some bad luck. So what does she do take a bag of clothes, her purse,cell phone and buy a ticket at the bus station. Camryn doesn’t know where she’s going other than she needed a change. And that’s where she meets Andrew.

Oh Andrew I loved his so much. He is enjoys classic music, rides a nice car, plus sing and play music. And though he has some issues that are not shown until later in the book. He always have a cheerfully attitude until pissed off. Which makes me think that’s why Camryn was so distant to him in the beginning.

But that changed and  I loved how he took Camryn out of her comfort zone. Helped her find herself and show what she can do. Even though both Camryn and Andrew both had there issues that the other helped get them through. And though a relationship scared them both(mostly Camryn but Andrew did have some doubt)it didn’t stop them from being together. In my favorite kind of bubbling romance slow and steady.

Along with the drama with both family and life the character growth was clearly seen. Also something to really like about this book that nothing was rushed. One thing I wouldn’t mind having more off is Andrews point of view. Yes it is seen at parts in the book however I would have more of him. I will say if you enjoy Amy’s and Rogers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson then you will enjoy this. Though this is new adult so there is some sexy times that are to die for.

Loved both Camryn and Andrew and with there great chemistry, and that ending. I cant wait to read more by reading The Edge of Always the final book.

Other than Working this Weekend…

This weekend am going to be trying to finish up so of my current reads. It has grown a lot that which makes no fun. 

Almost finished probably will before I go to sleep.   
Haven’t picked up this  book in a while so am excited to find out the last part of the story.  
I loved Doon when I first picked it up. Then I put it down and haven’t picked it up since. 

So The Edge of Never, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and Doon are three books  I’ve been really wanting to get finish. So the goal is to finish these off so I can get to the other ones. Wish me luck.

Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

Page count: 435

Format: audible/ebook 

Genre: science fiction/action & Adventure

Rating: 5/5

Summary: it was supposed to be a regular space mission to Mars when a freak storm happens. Most got off planet except for Mark Watney who they thought was dead. However some how he survived but now Mark Watney has  a bigger challenge ahead of him. Trying to survive Mars with his skills and pure luck. 

My thoughts: Even though the science went mostly over my head. However the humor and things that Watney had to go through made this a five stars for me. He was left for dead on Mars for two months before NASA even knew he was alive. And it took a total of a year and half before rescue. And do you know what can happen in that year and half a lot of crazy things that made Watney think outside the box. 
Mark Watney as a character was great. Even though he was alone on Mars with no water, food, water, and everyone thinks your dead. However Watney has the best humor though it all and though he had his freak outs, his humor was always there. And he needed it as nothing always went smoothly on Mars.

Example of humor:

Yes, of course duct tape works in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and should be worshipped.

it’s true, you know. In space, no one can hear you scream like a little girl.

My asshole is doing as much work as my brain

Things he had to battle with:

-like I said before no food, water, or air.

-Trying not to blow himself up (which was more often then not).

-Trying to find communtion 

-Machine fixing 

-Dust storms 

-and disco and 70s tv shows.
I loved this book and now I cant wait to see the movie at some point. If your not a science person some of what’s said may go over your head. But don’t let that stop you pick up these book, and see all the crazy things Mark Watney went through. And one thing I’ve found is truth is that

love for science is universal across all cultures

 Because a whole lot of people came together to get one man back home with his crew mates.

Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate’s brother? That’s a shock.

This book is really cute but not as good as Dearest Clementine. First off the first 16 chapters was a rerun of the first book. Which is cool since you get a backstory and how they meet and so on. However since Dani was Clem’s roommate they could of meet anytime after the first book. Oh and after chapter 16 it’s there story and how they meet again but he doesn’t remember her. Then she totally tries to pretend that he doesn’t exist. Which brings the whole of talked this through then it would have been easier. But no it took and accident that happened before thanksgiving that got them to talk. 

Another thing is this book was in dual POVs. Which I didn’t understand why the author did this in the second book and not the first one. It was mostly Dani but there was plenty of Jax also. It was kinda nice to see Jax background and why he is a pimp who knows how to kick butt on a soccer field. 
Things I didn’t like for one the plot kinda of ran the same length as Dearest Clementine. It just seemed like I’ve read it before and skipped over some of it. Also for the fact it drags as their thinking of each other or what to do. Further more Dani kept using hashtag which wasn’t even in a message form. She would random think of something then put hashtag after in. #WTF lol just joking. 
So even though I enjoyed the book and thought it was cute. I still enjoyed Clem’s story more. Don’t know if am going to start the last one. Maybe later if am up to it.

Ebook Review: Dearest Clementine

Rating: 5/5

Okay when I was about to finish this book I believe this book was a 4.9. However by the end I knew even if I had a problem within this book. That it is a 5 star to me. This book is sweet book that has plenty of elements to keep you interest. 
First off we have Clementine Avery a senior in college trying to find her mojo to write another best seller. However instead taking a young adult class she is made to take a romance class instead. Which is not Clementine’s cup of tea since she hasn’t dated since her boyfriend cheated on her in high school. So to get through the class Clem’s friend Jenna tries to help. But the biggest help come in the form of Gavin Murphy the R.A of Warren House.
Okay bad summary but I try. Anyway first off I love me some Gavin Murphy he has to be the most patient guy ever. Clementine puts on this mood called bitchy mood since she doesn’t want to date anyone. However Gavin was patient and let there be a friendship before moving on to a relationship when she was ready. I love how there relationship was slow with some making out in between (the stack scene yes please). 
Clementine in the beginning was just trying to keep to herself and write however as the book processed you watched her care more. Like with Kade a friend/enemy someone he used to date and pushed away got kidnapped after studying aboard. To cope he put up flyers and Clem helps out bring them into a friendship. Also Clem grows with forgiving those who hurt her in the past which include her ex boyfriend and her twin Jackson. By the end something happens that Clem needs a little help and both were very helpful in that department. And after all the drama died down friendships grew out of the pain. 
Something I didn’t enjoy was the fact that communication between Gavin and Clem stopped when Gavin started blowing her off. I get the reason why and Clem being who she is doesn’t trust very easy. However they both were there but distance and I didn’t like that. 

So am done rambling and just saying I love this book. And I want a Gavin in my life. He sings, writes, patient, and a great snugger. Though I wouldn’t take him from Clem because I believe her or one of her friends could kick my ass.So there is a story on her twin that I really want to read and probably will get it soon. 

Thanks Gabrielle for the recommendation.

Purity in Death

Title: Purity in Death

Author: J.D. Robb

Series: In Death #15

Pages: 355

Format: paperback

Publisher: Berkley

Genre: romance/suspense

Summary: Scum of New York is coming up dead after having the symptoms of having extreme headaches and acting in a rage while bleeding from there eyes, and nose. Before there actual deaths occur. So unknown what killed them other than on there computers read out Absolute Purity Achieved. Now  Eve Dallas believes there’s more going on, and that its a computer virus that is killing these people.

What I mean by team I mean mostly EDD, Roarke, and a old/young character Jamie (from Ceremony in Death) still tech smart but still runs at the mouth. So the computer and how to contain the virus becomes there pet project. Since they are more tech savvy then Eve. EDD is more than welling for the fact that because of this virus one of there own was killed and plenty was injured. Including our favorite mult. color EDD guy McNab. 

Eve and Peabody are connecting the dots on who would want them dead. Which is plenty apparently.  So there activities that involve mostly minors put them on the hit list to a group calling themselves Purity Seekers. Rapture in Death comes again but different situation. Who think that because these people are scum that they deserve death.  That there protecting the youth of New York with these virus. Also there is more media with this  book which makes Eve a very happy Lietaunt (sarcasm here). 

So other than dealing with these murders she also have to deal with the PDA. Which is funny to watch because nothing gets between Eve and her case. The killers where multiple people from different areas of life. And how Eve caught the leader as you will was sneaky and clever. My favorite kind of Eve, because she has a poker face like no other.Knows how to get her case solved, while walking on toes in the process.

Relationships: Roarke and Eve get into it for the fact that their beliefs for following the law and or did they deserve it come between them. There is always going to be that line with them since they’ve differently. Mira said it the best

“You’re not the same person , Eve, nor would either of you want to be. Seeing this from two sides would, I’d think, help keep you both honest.”

Thankfully they also have a deep love for each other that weighs more so there alright in the end. Peabody and MacNab has grown closer which I would thank him being hurt attribute to. I know that sounds bad but these is when there relationship changed for the better, and loved it. Also we see how the hold up in EDD shows how much Eve and Fenney care for each other as a father and daughter relationship. Which I love to see because Eve has a father figure, and it’s not that scum that she lived with at age eight.

I think that’s what I love most about these books not only the way Eve solved cases. But how close everyone is and are family. Which is why this book gets full stars from me.

Some quotes that I loved…

“Since we both have to answer to your mother, I wont even acknowledge that bit of stupidity.”

“But if such a thing should happen, I’ll have the satisfaction of knowing Eve will be sending the lot of you to hell right behind me.”
