mini reviews of some books

Jess is a party girl and has some issues at home. She does something stupid and her dad puts her to work at a homeless shelter. Flynn is a boy she met one night , and she ends up seeing him more at the shelter. They are attracted to each other. I loved the cast of characters and loved that Flynn is diverse. I would have loved to see him on the cover. They both have family issues that they are working through.

Book Review= C

April 7

Very moving story of a girl who works at a motel and wants to get out of town. Skylar mom's isn't always there for her. Josh is the brother a boy she dated. Josh is also back from a tour of duty. They are attracted to each other but slowly start as friends. I have realized that I will read anything by this author.

Book Review=  B

Already out

Ella has broken up with Matt. He comes back to town and tries to recreate thier night of Yes. She is in contact with her other friends during the night. She hasn't really gotten over him, and him over her. During the night we see what happened that first night, and what they are doing tonight. Matt left things unsaid and lost friends.

I enjoyed this girls friendship and even the relationship that could be toxic but it's them. Seriously a great story about taking chances.

Fan's being taken advantage of

I have long been a fan of Katie McGarry books and I enjoy her characters...but this latest attempt is not so nice. To read this fan favorite of Abby and Logan, I have to buy her other NEW book series and when this book comes out I can get both books. Well looking on amazon it varies from 11-14 dollars for an e book or book. Then Abby's book goes back in the vault .

I had bought Gayle Forman's Just one Night as a separate story for .99 because  i wanted to see how it ended. Why can't Harper/ Harlequin Teen do this for the fans. As a fan , this seems unfair and sleezy because I know that I wanted to see the Logan /Abby story . Heck I admit that I haven't read the latest Echo and Noah story because I couldn't handle the angst. But I would buy it :)

Seriously the fans should be treated better and let us have the option...because as it looks I would rather spend my money elsewhere for another book. I have wanted to read the Abby story since she was introduced. But having this be a lead up to the other book series is not the way to play this. I hope that this fails ..because the last time i bought a book was because my name was in the back of Alligant as a blogger.

Many of her fans are teens and not moms--but this promotion just seems not fair to the fans.

Have you had a promotion of book that just seemed wrong or have you waited because the publisher was doing something like this ?? Do you buy Novellas ??

What are your thoughts on this promotion ??
