I’ve been unsure about many things in my life except for one thing, that I have always loved him. Every single minute of every single day that I have been on this earth, my heart has belonged to him. It has never been a question, never a doubt. The love had taken on many different forms over the years, but it had always been a constant.
Everyone has their definition of love. There have been countless songs sung about it. A gazillion books, articles, and poems written about it. There are experts on love who will tell you how to get it, keep it, and get over it.
We’re led to believe love is complicated. It’s not the love that’s complicated. It’s all the crap that we attach to it and put in front of it that makes it difficult. If you’re smart, you’ll realize this before it’s too late and simplify.
Amanda Kelly spent her entire life trying to control every aspect of it, while striving for perfection. Her obsession with being perfect, along with her feelings of worthlessness, consumed her. The one thing she thought was perfect in her life was the bond she shared with her best friend, Noah.
Everything was going according to her life plan until she woke up one day and realized she had fallen in love with him. The one thing she couldn’t control was the affect he had on her. Noah had the power to give her one hundred lifetimes of happiness, which also gave him the power to completely devastate her. He was the one thing in her life that was perfect, but she couldn't allow herself to have him.
Her life begins to unravel. Events take over and force her to let go of her dreams and desires. She needs to realize that a person cannot control the events in their life, only their reaction to them...but will it be too late for her to save her relationship with her best friend?
Present Perfect is a story of how past events have present consequences and how perfect your present could be if you stopped fighting and just allowed it to happen.
4 chocolate cake stars for PRESENT PERFECT! Check out the blurb and read on for the review.
I'm kind of having trouble writing this review. I don't know where to start. One thing is for sure, though. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Fisher Amelie's VAIN.
You'll see why. Check out the blurb:
If you’re looking for a story about a good, humble girl, who’s been hurt by someone she thought she could trust, only to find out she’s not as vulnerable as she thought she was and discovers an empowering side of herself that falls in love with the guy who helps her find that self, blah, blah, blah...then you’re gonna’ hate my story.
Still drying my eyes... hold on a sec...
If you don't know it already, then you should know that I'm a sucker for this type of novels. RUIN is the first book by Rachel Van Dyken that I've read and I absolutely want more more more. Now, RUIN got into my heart hook line and sinker and did not let go even until after the last page. To get a feel for what I'm saying, check out the blurb:
I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness...until Wes Michels offered to be my light.
Oh my, God. This book. I can't, for the life of me, can't seem to wrap my head around The Bronze Horseman. Here, read the blurb while I try to organize my thoughts for a moment:
The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.
A nice quick read and a promising start to a series. Click READ MORE for the rest of the review. Here's the blurb:
Never Ross wants to be loved.
There comes a time when you encounter a book that is so relevant and expertly written that you can't help but to love it.
My name is Tate. He doesn't call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. No, he'll barely even speak to me.
After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.
Who am I?
