Halloween with the Hunk: A Lumberjack Romance (Holiday Studs Book 1) - Jewel Killian
You know how sometimes you can feel eyes on you? That’s why I looked up. She stared so hard, so intently I could feel it. I met her eyes and I swear I don’t think I’ve ever been looked at like that before— like she wanted to eat me.

Book review : The upside of unrequited Becky albertalli
The Upside of Unrequited - Becky Albertalli

October 15- 23

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back. 

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Review : This book was so freaking cute I related to Molly so much in this book she's a curvy girl and she has anxiety . Molly has had 27 crushes but no boyfriends she has a twin sister and two mom's I wasn't a big fan of Molly's sister I thought she could be kinda a bitch . Molly ends up introducing Cassie to her future girlfriend and then mostly after Mina comes into the picture Cassie kinda drifts away from Molly and cassie wants Molly to date Mina's best friend Will and Molly doesn't think will has any interest in her and then there is Reid who is just so freaking adorable I shipped him and Molly like on first meeting they just click together and Molly starts to like Reid more than a friend and when her friend Olivia looks like she has some interest in Reid Molly freaks out and gets Mad at Reid and to make him jealous she hangs out with will who doesn't like her that way . The cool thing about this book is we got cameo's from Simon who I love and Abby is Molly's cousin . But Molly tells Reid how she feels which was so sweet and they kiss and next was there mom's wedding which was so sweet I loved this book . The one problem I had was the gradmother yes she use to to be big but insulting Molly like that wasn't cool .

Quotes:


I don’t entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment. And they have to like you back. A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances. It’s almost unfathomable that it happens as often as it does.”


There’s just something terrifying about admitting you like someone. In a way, it’s actually easier when there’s no chance of anything happening. But there’s this threshold where things suddenly become possible. And then your cards are on the table. And there you are, wanting, right out in the open.”


I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club and I'm wondering how mermaids pee.” 


It's funny, because you always think the hard part is meeting someone the first time. It's not. It's the second time, because you've already used up all the obvious topics of conversation. And even if you haven't, it's strange and heavy-handed to introduce random conversational topics at this stage in the game. Hi, Reid. Let's converse about topics. HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE? WHAT BOOKS DO YOU LIKE?”


Okay, I just gotta say it." The guy touches my arm. "You are fucking gorgeous for a big girl."
I freeze.
"It's a compliment!"
I look at him. "Fuck you.

I'm not trying to over think things. I'm trying to be less careful . but you have to be your hearts own goalie

Dumplin' - Julie Murphy
His entire body blushes and he covers his face with his hands so that I can barely see him. “She throws romance parties.” “Wait.” I try so hard not to laugh. “I’m sorry. What did you say?” He throws his head back against the bed. “Romance parties.” “Like, um, sex toys?”

Dumplin' - Julie Murphy

“Willowdean.” I turn. He moves toward me so quickly that I feel like I’m moving, too. Our noses brush and his lips stop short of mine. My mind’s eye has yet to catch up and process that he is here, in my bubble, redefining everything I thought I knew of myself. My discretion. My pride. They’re both gone and it’s like I’ve got horse blinders on. I am kissing Bo Larson. I am thinking of Bo Larson. For the first time in my life, I feel tiny. I feel small. And not in the shrinking flower kind of way. This feeling: it empowers me. “I want to kiss you,” he says, and with each word, his lips brush against mine I lose all words and, instead, lace my fingers through his hair and pull his lips to meet mine.

Dumplin' - Julie Murphy
You come prepared,” he says, pointing to my fist. I hold my self-defense hand up. “Um, you led me to an abandoned elementary school. That has ‘I want to kill you and play dress up with your dead body’ written all over it.” His laughter subsides for a moment, and he says, “Okay. That’s fair. Good on you.”

Things I'm Seeing Without You - Peter Bognanni
I want you to take your picture and send it to me
Its a little dark
Turn on a light , genius
Should I send it to you now
I'm going to hang up , I said , and then you're going to send it to me . But there's one last thing .
What ?
I want you to be naked in the picture .
More silence
Its only fair . I think you know that .
I didn't wait for a response . I just ended the call. And I fully expected that he would call right back and try to argue his way out of it . But he didn't do that . And as time passed at this rate about an hour per second, I wondered maybe if it was better if he didn't do it
It would give me a chance to break contact , to prove that he never really wanted to be on even ground with me .
What does a true liar do , after all , when you ask him to stand naked .
Quote
Things I'm Seeing Without You - Peter Bognanni
You can't just run away from your grief . you have to deal with it head on . no matter how difficult and strange it is . we both took a drink of coffee. There are no shortcuts she said . you have to do the hard stuff before it gets any easier.

Book review : YOU Caroline Kepnes
You: A Novel - Caroline Kepnes

September 29- October 11

        When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder. This book was all kinds of fucked up but I really enjoyed it . 

Review :This book is about Joe who becomes obsessed with a girl who came into the bookstore he works at he ends up stalking her and ends up taking the guy she's fucking hostage and eventually kills him . Beck and Joe are both terrible people Beck is very fake and her friend peach is totally obsessed with her . Joe and Beck end up dating and what I think is more creepy about this book it's not saying Beck it says YOU . Joe realizes peach is in his way and tries to kill her also and eventually does . Beck pulls away from Joe and Joe ends up seeing someone else but he's still obsessed with Beck but they end up getting back together but she finds out about everything all the creepy stuff of her's he was storing and he keeps her hostage in the bookstore in the basement and he ends up killing her this book was so fucked up .

       

Quotes : The problem with books is that they end. They seduce you. They spread their legs to you and pull you inside. And you go deep and leave your possessions and your ties to the world at the door and you like it inside and you don't want for your possessions or your ties and then, the book evaporates.”
