After escaping her kidnappers and destroying the black market where she was held captive, all Nita wants is to find a way to live her life without looking over her shoulder. But with a video of her ability to self-heal all over the dark web, Nita knows she’s still a prime target on the black market. There’s only one way to keep herself safe. Nita must make herself so feared that no one would ever dare come after her again. And the best way to start building her reputation? Take her revenge on Fabricio, the boy who sold Nita to her kidnappers. But killing Fabricio is harder than Nita thought it would be, even with Kovit by her side. Now caught in a game of kill or be killed, Nita will do whatever it takes to win.

Twice in a Blue Moon- Christina Lauren

43822778From the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners and the “delectable, moving” (Entertainment WeeklyMy Favorite Half-Night Stand comes a modern love story about what happens when your first love reenters your life when you least expect it…

Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak.

During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good.

Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice.

With Christina Lauren’s signature “beautifully written and remarkably compelling” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author) prose and perfect for fans of Emily Giffin and Jennifer Weiner, Twice in a Blue Moon is an unforgettable and moving novel of young love and second chances.

Pumpkinheads- Rainbow Rowell

40864789Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.
But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.

Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .

What if their last shift was an adventure?

Beloved writer Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award–winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create this tender and hilarious story about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place—and a person—with no regrets.

What would you do of you were back in the late 90’s being paid sit around all night to read people emails? Yup you heard right paid to spy. That’s how it is for Lincoln . He hates the job since when he applied it sayes internet security or computer security so he thought he would be working on code or using fire walks from hackers he didn’t think he would just be reading people’s emails and snitching on them.  Slowly thru the months 2 girls Beth and Jen there emails is flagged a lot and thru that Lincoln slowly starts to like and maybe love Beth even though that’s weird since never met her or even chatted once so how can he be liking her. Plus one other down fall that doesn’t help him Beth has a boyfriend since start of college.  Can Lincoln survive this job so he can get his own place and away from certain memories I won’t say what or just say know what I’m out. Plus he is 28 and on weekends plays dungeons and dragons which right there calls hey I’m really trying to be a epic single nerd. So I can say this book is weird but I really enjoyed the story since if can get past Lincoln shyness is pretty cool dude even with playing d&d so all you can do is cheer for him. And interesting slowly how maybe the 2 can meet even if slightly diffrent shifts. Since when think about it his job is sooo odd. So who knows. And a big sweet is in order this was my second RR book and this one I liked compared to carry on which I didn’t dunno why since was like Harry Potter. ~~~~~ 5/5 ~~~~~ JUSTIN 

Kindred Spirits-Rainbow Rowell

I have never heard of World Book Day until I picked up this lovable short story. After finishing this, I rushed online and joined their mailing list. I know! I know! I’m a nerd! But who cares!!!

It’s here! The wait is almost over!!!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is right around the corner and Elena is here to wait in that line no matter what to see her favorite franchise take over the world. She bleeds, pukes, breathes, sleeps and even goes in her pants Star Wars all day every day. 

When she gets in line, there are only two people in front of her. What? This can’t be right?

Wacky adventures, cheap thrills and peeing beside dumpsters all for the sake of Star Wars.

This book is so not fair! Really! There isn’t enough. Where is the rest of it? 

It leaves you on the edge and there wasn’t an end in sight. I really hope that she follows up with this short story because it was too cute just to leave up in the air like that.

All fans or something cute and sweet will like this and for diehard fans of Rainbow will fall in love all over again.
