#VBT - Girls Who Lie Together - Jessa Russo

#VBT - Girls Who Lie Together - Jessa Russo - August 2022 To start with, this book I went and grabbed as I love the cover and it sounded like a fun read and it grabbed my attention with the tagline that read Grease meets Mean Girls. For me, this book was all Grease and yes it did have a mean girl queen bee vibe but was not Mean Girls movie style for me. If Regina George had been a bisexual and had feelings for Cady and then continued to cheat with Eric and Cady, then yes go ahead and compare to Mean Girls. This book starts with the summer break and Ren after wrecking her stepfather's car has been sentenced to community service in the form of building houses with her stepfather's old friend. When she arrives, she learns that her stepfather's friend's niece has also come to stay with them and help build houses and do chores just like Ren. Brit is the pageant type - blonde barbie doll whereas Ren strikes me as an Emo chick personality. As the summer goes along, we learn

Review: Nobody But Us - Laure Van Rensburg

Review: Nobody But Us - Laure Van Rensburg - April 2022 I have been meaning to read this one for a while now as I had it on hold on my Libby app, however, I only get a chance to read that on the weekends and the last couple of weekends for me have just been so crazy busy, I haven't had a chance to read. That changed this morning when I made sure I sat and read the entire book - it only took me just under an hour and 1/2 to read, so not a huge chunk of my time but I could relax and read with no interruptions. The book starts with our prologue of someone we know as Anonymous - writing about her encounters with a man. The book then jumps to Ellie and her boyfriend Steven going away to a cabin in the woods for their 6-month anniversary. As the book goes on, we do get hints that Steven isn't faithful and has had a few affairs with her students and likes them young, with the whole teacher/student relationship going on. The story progresses as we have one chapter of the present wit

Of Fae & Hate Quirah Casey (Of Fae & Hate, #1) Publication date: July 23rd 2022 Genres: Adult, Reverse Harem, Urban Fantasy Hate is a strong word, but at the Nadouraz Academy it’s deadly. I never wanted to attend Nadouraz Academy. The school for fae is full of spoiled, bratty, powerful royals. I’m none of those things. Most importantly, no one even knows if I’m even fae. The first week of school I find myself in a rivalry with more fae than I can keep track of, but it becomes the least of my worries when I end up cursed. What’s worse is that the curse binds me to three fae I hate and one who just may be a demon from the darkest pits of hell: Soskia, Alik, Fox, and Brynsyn. Now a promise to give the pretentious academy a try, an unbreakable contract, and a wicked curse may seal my death. Goodreads / Amazon — EXCERPT: I’m halfway to my dorm when I become aware of footsteps marching in time with mine. I whirl around prepared to give the fox guy another piece
