Hi friends! I’ve been on a good book streak lately so I figured it’s about time to share some of them with you. I’m one of those people that really likes to read, however, I am VERY picky about committing to a book unless I know it’s going to be worth my time. lol. I read like 10 reviews one book prior to purchasing it… cuz who has time to invest in a boring read… not me.
Now that Summer is coming to an end, I’m wrapping up my Summer easy read list and starting on my fantasy/dystopian type books….idk why these type books seem fitting for fall to me, but they just do.
While I was at the beach I read “Who Do You Love” by Lianne Moriety
Rachel and Andy are merely 8 years old during their first encounter. Rachel, born with a heart defect, is in the hospital when she see’s a young boy, Andy, walk in by himself with a broken arm.
Bored of her over-night stays at the hospitals, she walks in to the waiting room and sits by Andy, keeping him company until his mother arrives. When the nurse finds Rachel in the waiting room she makes her say goodbye and head back to her own room, leaving her to believe she will never see or think of Andy again.
The book alternates between Rachel’s and Andy’s stories as they grow up—Rachel with her Jewish family in an affluent suburb in Florida and Andy, who is half African American, half white, and feels like he belongs nowhere, with his single mom in a poor area of Philadelphia.
Who Do You Love isn’t just a love story, though. It’s about how people change and grow separately and together, and how a chance encounter can alter the course of one’s life.

Who is her one true love?
Just purchased The Selection Series by Kierra Cass
So far I’m only 1/3 of the way through, but I’m really enjoying it! This is a 5 book series so I’m hoping that this book hooks me in so I have my next 4 books already chosen for me. I’m a sucker for multi-book series…. Twilight consumed my life for about 2 months during senior year of high school.
Here is an excerpt from ‘Good Reads’ on the Selection Series:
“For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined” — Good Reads
