Book Review :Food wars vol 2

Food Wars!, Vol. 2: Shokugeki no Soma - Yuki MORISAKI, Shun Saeki, Yuuto Tsukuda

Jan 28- Feb 5

Leaving home for the first time in his young life, Soma moves into the school’s Polaris Dormitory—a place run by an old crone and filled with crazy and eccentric students! Barely settled in, Soma quickly finds himself in one of Tohzuki’s legendary cooking duels—a shokugeki! Who will his very first opponent be?

Review : Soma is moving into his dorm but first has to pass with a cooking assignment with the land lady but once he does he meets all the other interesting characters living in the dorm isshiki invites him to join the others for a little party but how he invites soma is from the ceiling hes a weird dude . Soma and him kinda do a cook off but isshiki informs him its not offical the real ones have to be accepted and you have to give something to get something . Megumi and Soma check out the bowl club which is close to shutting down thanks to erina but soma wants to save it so he challenges Ikumi to an offical food war and he wins. Next they are all going to cooking camp which should be interesting.

Tiger Lily - Jodi Lynn Anderson
Let me tell you something straight off. This is a love story, but not like any you’ve heard. The boy and the girl are far from innocent. Dear lives are lost. And good doesn’t win.

Book Review :Nimona Noelle stevenson

Nimona -  Noelle Stevenson

Jan 19-21

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.

But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

Review : I had heard this graphic novel was good but it was really good I loved it. I read it with the audiobook which made the experience way better .This is about Nimona who is a shapeshifter who is working with a super vilian this graphic novel was crazy cause there may be more to her powers that blackheart doesnt know and the prince is an interesting character I really enjoyed this book I recommend it

Book review: Checkmate This is beautiful Kennedy fox

Checkmate : This is beautiful  - Kennedy Fox

Jan 14-15

Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real life Angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires me to be a better person.
Rescuing dogs, feeding the homeless, volunteering at the local food pantry are just a few of the ways she gives back to others, although no one has ever been there for her.
Falling for her was inevitable, losing her will destroy me.

Letting someone in didn't come easy, but she made me want to try for the first time in years.
Her bubbling personality and kind spirit make it impossible to forget a girl like her.
But when tragedy strikes and she loses all memory that our relationship ever existed, my worst nightmare comes to life.

I'll do anything to remind her of the love we shared. I know it'll be an uphill battle, but I won't walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by my rules.

Checkmate, Angel.

Review :The series has ended I loved this series so much in the last book Kayla has lost her memory and it was really hard for her and Logan cause she doesnt remember him and I felt so bad for Logan cause hes so in love with her but she doesnt remember him and they try to make it work but its not working so he ends it . Kayla ends up quiting her job and is planning on starting a no kill animal shelter and one night when she was out with her friends she sees Logans daughter and it triggers her memory and she remembers everything and she goes to logan but his daughters mother answers the door but Logan finds Kayla and they get back together.Kayla has been through a lot through the years and she deserves to be happy. Logan proposes to kayla on Christmas which is her birthday and in the future courntey and her are both pregnant I loved the ending of this series. 

quotes :

Kayla Adele Sinclair, will you make me the happiest fucking man in the world and marry me?”

“I remember,” I tell them. “I remember everything.”


Did I really send you a text message about my bleeding uterus and wanting to eat a glazed donut off your dick?”


“I know you don’t remember me, Angel, but just know I love you deeply and nothing will ever change that.”

Book Reciew : Checkmate This is Dangerous Kennedy Fox

Checkmate : This is dangerous - Kennedy Fox

Jan 13-14
Logan Knight is a real life knight in shining armor. 
A detective godsend in a sleek black suit has me thinking less than secretive thoughts. Brooding and mysterious, he's the kind of guy every girl instantly notices. Between his seductive smirk and charming good looks, it's no wonder I can't help the way he makes me feel whenever I'm near him. 
Too bad he's unavailable—or so he says.

He thinks I'm a do-gooder who shouldn't get involved with a guy like him. His past is messy and relationships just add to that. He insists the timing is all wrong and he's devoted to his career, but I don't buy that excuse for a second. I see the way his body tenses and his jaw ticks every time another guy is around me. He just won't admit it, but I'm more determined than ever to show him what he's missing.

I'm a devoted animal rescuer and I'll risk everything to save them, but when a dramatic turn of events puts both our lives at risk, I'm positive Logan will write me off for good. But when he asks for my help with a personal crisis, I know it's my last chance to finally show him I can handle anything he throws my way—messy past and all.

He might think he has me all figured out, but I'll prove him wrong no matter what he thinks. This game of push and pull has me running in circles. One wrong move and we could both lose.

Checkmate, Knight.

review : I loved this book and the ending was crazy so this is about Logan and kayla who are friends of Draw and Courtney . kayla has been into Logan for awhile but hes told her he cant date anyone and the reason is cause he has a daughter and hes her number one. But Logan and kayla are great friends one day when kayla is on a date and Logan sees she isnt having a great time and goes to help her and they end up kissing .And this happens a few times in this book and every time he would pull away even when she was on a date. But he finally gives in and they start dating and everything is going great until a drug bust Logan is working on kayla ends up showing up for some reason and she falls and hits her head and when she wakes up she doesnt remember logan .
quotes:

and fuck, I hate when he flashes that smile. It’s a panty-melting smile

You’re like my real-life Knight in shining armor.”

Sorry to hear about your lady troubles. Hopefully chocolates and flowers cheer you up! -Logan P.S. I think you meant to text Courtney


I’d like to eat my glazed donut right off his cock and then some. 

I can’t deny the fact that I’m a little flattered yet shocked at the moment. Mostly because she thinks a glazed donut would fit around my shaft. It wouldn’t by the way.

That you’re telling people a glazed donut could fit around my shaft. I mean, that’s not exactly a compliment, so I should get to prove myself otherwise.”

I’ll only judge you if it’s something ridiculous like being Team Feylin or something.” His cheeks nearly touch his ears by the loud laughter that roars from his throat. “Well for the record, I’d be Team Feysand.” I laugh, appreciating that he knew what I was talking about. “Don’t know whether I’m concerned or
impressed that you know the ACOTAR series.


“I love you, Kayla.” He presses a soft kiss against my lips. Leaning his forehead against mine, he releases a breath. “I love you so much.” Butterflies swarm my belly at his sincere tone. His words leave me breathless, but somehow, I find my voice. I look up into his eyes and smile. “I love you, too.”


You’re a big part of my world now, Kayla. Don’t you ever forget that
