im a fan of the monthly challenges, what can i say!!! eye-openers on books that are worth reading not just for entertainment but for delving into new genres as well. happy 2014. happy year of the horse!
Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour #1) by Olivia Cunning...i was in a mood for a chapter from my YA read..so i decided on this series for some bad boys rock star band and whew! this was more erotic than i expected. the rock stars on tour lead a hectic life but full of very available willing groupies, its graphic, seedy, dirty, appalling even yet strangely alluring. This is the story of the talented guitarist Brian who is surprisingly a die hard romantic and his muse a much older but very sexy college professor on human sexuality Myrna. Contains very adult graphic content so beware if you are not into that kind of kinkyness
Rock Hard (Sinners on Tour #2) by Olivia Cunning This is the story of the Sinners lead vocalist who is apparently a sex rock star god "Seb Lionheart" seriously you need to work out in the gym to be able to keep up with these guys sexual activities. Seb is only ever love one woman and that is Jessica *cough* rabbit *cough* but when his ego cost him the love of his life. And now that she is back in his life once again things pretty much escalate to a never ending eruption of "O" for this two especially when they are into public tryst. Another scorching hottt installment that i worry for their arteries busting out. In fact Seb's artery got busted but for a different reason though. LOL! Caution : contains explicit graphic adult content.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell : ) I absolutely adore this one!!! this is her debut novel but i read Eleanor and Park first. But this one really left me so much full of giddyness that is the only word i can describe my feelings right now. I end up hugging my tablet to my chest with a stupid grin on my face. It was that a fantastic reading experience for me. I love Beth and Jennifer's witty, sarcastic humor through their email exchanges and Lincoln is the IT guy who is in charge of filtering those red flag emails. He fell in love with Beth through her emails and yet have never seen her face. You guys need to read this one! You can't miss it! a lot of movies and tv shows references in the 80s and 90's. The Y2K! so very nostalgic

by nicole williams? i have this on my tbr list since last year..so i hope i can finish this within this year also check out books my Colleen Hoover and Jay Mclean both are amazing writers! seriously amazing for YA with mature content contemporary romance.
crime- suspense, not my kind of read, but im a person who cant put down a book if its not saying "the end". so, i kinda dragged the reading part.. it just didn't get through me.. but still satisfied since i was able to finish it. every book is a good book, i just liked the others!
Well, I've not finished anything in weeks so I'm not sure whether the latest book I've finished was Paul Auster's New York Trilogy or Gaby Rodriguez's The Pregnancy Project.
The New York Trilogy is actually 3 books (well, duh) but I have an edition where all 3 (City of Glass, Ghost, and The Locked Room) are together in a book. Some people may not be able to appreciate this trilogy, while I thought it was intricately-written it does tend to drag you down if you're not one to enjoy knowing what a guy walking around watching someone religiously would have on his mind. It's not like most detective novels; it's interesting in its own right. It won't give you the ending you expect from these kind of stories, rather it would give you a lot to think about, especially going through the thoughts of men going mad. Personally, I like it. I won't pretend that I understood it right away, I had to read back a few times. It's a trilogy but you won't see the connections right away, a fourth wall might have been broken, and you may go mad yourself (well, maybe not.) I urge you guys to give it a read, you might like it.
The Pregnancy Project on the other hand, is more for reeeaaaally light reading. It's the true story of a middleschool girl who decides to pull a fast one on almost everyone she knew by faking a pregnancy for 6 months for her school project. It's not really a novel; it's more of a narrative where she talks about her experience as a (fake) pregnant teenager, how she was treated by her peers and family who didn't know it was all a ruse, the importance of being educated in the choices teenagers make and all the downsides of stereotyping. It's not bad, but I guess it's a book better suited for your teenage daughters.
