**About The Book**
'Aphrodite kissed a mortal once by the light of this moon, many thousands of years ago. It drove him crazy. The next person that he kissed - boum. The craziness travelled like this from person to person. It travelled through time. Everywhere - boum! Tu comprends?' 'Where did it end up?' I whisper. His lips are on my cheek now. 'It ended with me. And now I am going to pass it to you. You will like that, mermaid?'
Imagine the perfect kiss. A legendary kiss that makes people crazy with love. Imagine a summer's night, on a moonlit beach in the South of France, as French boy Laurent kisses 16-year-old Delilah after the best chat-up line she's ever heard. BOOM! Delilah is pretty sure the Kiss is fiction, despite her head-spinning holiday fling. But with all the sudden crushes, break-ups and melt-downs happening back at home, the Kiss starts looking a little too real for comfort. If only Delilah could keep track of where it's gone ...Who knew one kiss could cause this much trouble?
A hilarious rom-com that will delight Geek Girls everywhere!

Lately I haven't really been reading much. And when I have had time to sit and read it has took be days to finished a book. However, The Kiss I managed to sit and read in one night. It was just an easy and quick read that didn't take a lot of brain power.

*Book Review* Throne of Glass

**About the Book**
Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly.
Destined for greatness.
In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught.
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
Throne of Glass has been out for a few years and I feel like I am the only person who still hadn't read it. So I decided to order the first three books and I am so glad I did. Why has it took me so long to pick this book up? I did receive an arc when it was first released but at the time I didn't read fantasy novels and I couldn't get into it. But I've came along way since then and fantasy is now one of my favourite genres.

**About the Book**
 Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.

After having fell head over heals in love with the first three books I was sooooooo excited for the next instalment. My expectations were high!! Very High!! So I was a little disappointed that I didn't love this book. It was fast paced and an easy read. However, I just didn't feel the connection like the previous books.
Getting My Walk On!
Over the past week I have been a lazy bugger!! 
I know, I know!! It's terrible. But today, it was a lovely morning so I decided that we would walk to school today! So on went the Nike Free Runs and away we went!

The One! OMG The One!!!!! I honestly don't know how to review this without spoilers!! I have sat on this for a few days and I can't think of how in the world I can review such an amazing, and fan-freaking-tastic this really was  without giving away major plot lines!!!

Genre:  YA Dystopian,
The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.
Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.


O.M.G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't think I could love this anymore than I loved "The Selection" But let me tell you, "The Elite" just blew "The Selection" right out the water!! It was mind blowing!! I can't even describe how much I freaking loved this book. Usually the second book in a series can't live up to the first book but this one lived up to my expectations and then some!

In a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: to compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's ear. But for America Singer it means turning her back on her secret love, and leaving home for a prize she doesn't want.
Then America meets Maxon and all her plans start to crumble. Can the life she's always dreamed of compare to a future she never imagined?


I first received the paperback edition of this title as a gift from a fellow book blogger back it when it first came out. It wasn't until I notice it was that it was free on kindle a few weeks ago that I realised I still hadn't read it. (Hence why it was in my "We Still Haven't Read" meme last week!! And after starting is only yesterday and finishing it today I am kicking myself for waiting so long!! "The Selection" was a little taste of perfection!! I can't find a single fault within these pages. It was addictive and captivating and left me wanting more!!
