BOOK THOUGHTS: Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook!

Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood
Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great read!
If you loved "Mean Girls" then this is for you.
It has some funny moments and the story line just went great and the characters were realistic.
In high school for me, there were never girls who were like Lauren, but there were these two girls who called themselves The Stephenies and tried to make themselves the mean girls of our school and it shot to hell after some cholas called them out LOL so I've never gone through much of what Claire's (Helen) gone through but I felt for her and I actually liked how it ended. Awesome book! I'll need to read more of Eileen Cook in the future.

BOOK THOUGHTS: The Body by Stephen King!

The Body
The Body by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just as good as the movie.
I have never read a Stephen King book before and I'm so glad
that this was my first. I must have more King now. I just loved
the rawness of the story, and how these characters worked. Chris
is my favorite character in the book and in the movie and this novella
makes me want to watch the movie right now. If you have not seen "Stand by me"
then go rent it or watch it online. It's a perfect coming of age movie and the book
is just as perfect.

BOOK THOUGHTS: Perception by Kim Harrington!

Perception by Kim Harrington

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really wanted to love this book.
I had been patiently waiting for this to come out and when I contacted the publisher
and they agreed to send me a review copy, I WAS ECSTATIC! but then I read the book... very disappointed. I love Kim Harrington's writing, but the book was severely predictable.
There were too many twists and just when you thought you figured it out, it was changed up and that was predictable. The ending was hard to read because I knew who it was all along and it just didn't get me. If you are planning to read this sequel, go ahead because this is my opinion and it shouldn't sway you from trying out a book that could end up your favorite. 3 stars for me. Maybe the third book will be better, but I'm not counting on it. Maybe CLARITY should have been standalone.
