How to Marry an Alien

Alex’s interstellar relationship has finally been sealed in the eyes of the human world, so now she can move on to her next step: college.

With Ace by her side and a new piece of jewelry on her finger, she thinks she is ready for anything. Well, almost anything.
Her new roommate holds a dangerous link to her past that Alex isn’t sure if she can handle. Then there is the whole alien fiancé thing. Every time she tries to get closer to Ace, he seems to pull further away. Top that off with a full summer class load and a few more alien attacks and it’s just another day for Alex.

Except this time she isn’t sure if marrying an alien will be the happy ending she’s hoping for. goodreads-badge-add-plus-1

I was waiting forever for this book to come out. There wasn’t a second that I didn’t love this book. I even asked Magan if there would HOPEFULLY be a 4th book on how Alex and Ace were after the wedding. There was somethings that I was not expecting to find out in the book and it made me sad when I heard that.

I love how Alex became friends with everyone, even people from the past that weren’t so nice to her. Of course there were some twists in their relationship and Alex was learning to be more herself and who she wants to be in this book then the other 2 which was great because every 18 year old goes through that.

Ace was as always a sweetheart, I loved how he was always there for Alex no matter what. I can honestly say that I loved his character. He had his moments of brooding but he was definitely one of the nicest male characters I have read in a really long time. Most of the time they are kind of jerks. Don’t get me wrong, I like them too but it was a nice change of pace.

I have read EVERY book by Magan so far and honestly I have loved every one of them. I hope for the 4th book but if that doesn’t happen, I am happy with how the story ended. Ace and Alex had a great love story that had it’s ups and downs like a normal relationship except the guy just so happened to be an alien from another planet, and not only that but royalty on that planet. I hope everyone reads these books and falls in love with the characters like I have.

A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

Whitley Johnson’s dream summer with her divorcé dad has turned into a nightmare. She’s just met his new fiancée and her kids. The fiancée’s son? Whitley’s one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin’ great.

Worse, she totally doesn’t fit in with her dad’s perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn’t even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she’s ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn’t “do” friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn’t her stepbrother…at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger’s most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about. From Goodreads.

Seeing as the book starts off from where Whitley is getting to know that she got wasted enough the night before that she slept with someone was interesting. It was like holy hell, I thought Whitley was very calm even though she could barely remember the whole night at the time.

I felt that the flaws in the characters in the book were really good. I like how Whitley has issues not with just one parent but with both because they honestly don’t notice how much pain she has been in since they divorced. I love how her brother really cares about her but it’s hard for him because of the distance and the fact that he has a baby and wife. I thought her mom needed a wakeup call because she wasn’t helping the situation at all.

I liked how she eventually realized that she was using it as a poor coping mechanism but of course it took something almost to happen to her soon to be stepsister. She had some eye opening moments throughout the summer before her first year of college, which she kinda needed. She was a hot mess before that summer and her dad was also a mess because he treated her like a little sister instead of as her dad. I couldn’t imagine my dad being that way but I know it happens though, especially to the dad’s that are dads way too early and finally taste what life outside of a family would be. This is exactly what happened to her dad in the book.

I loved how she finally got the family that she needed and her first friend since middle school. I felt that she grew throughout the book and I really liked that it was like ALL of a sudden either. It took mistakes and trust to get to where she was in the end.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. I can’t wait to read more of Kody’s books, she really is an amazing writer.

 

Waiting on Wednesday!!!

Published July 11, 2012 by crysbookreviews

Only sixteen when she started the series, Ally Adornetto knows how teen hearts beat, and this long-awaited conclusion is certain to be her most popular book yet.

Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.

The only way Bethany and Xavier can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life? From Goodreads.

Why I am waiting for it.

The first two books of this trilogy were very good and the covers for all 3 books are amazing. I love the star crossed lover stories, a lot. Probably more than I like any other love stories. At the ending of Hades, I really can’t wait to see how it all ends.
