Book Traveling Thursday – For the 1st Time

168709Hey everyone & happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t counting down the hours. Ringing in the New Year was fun and all but work kicked my butt this week. Any way, I’ve been seeing the Book Traveling Thursday meme around since I started blogging and I figured it was time to give it a go.

Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly meme created by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog & Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much. The themes are announced over on the Goodreads group page. The concept is simple, every week you have to pick a book that fits the theme of the week, explain why your chosen book fits the theme, look at covers from multiple editions and multiple countries for the book you chose, and finally, include pictures of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

Review – Be With Me by J.Lynn

17558817

Goodreads Description: Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not… Continue reading

Review – Game On by Michelle Smith

game onGoodreads Book Description:

As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he’s only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.

Bri hasn’t talked to Eric in months—for starters, she’s been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric’s been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it’s a nightmare—Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.

In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody’s perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together. Continue reading
