Top Ten Book Boyfriends

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is all about the book boyfriends. This list was incredibly hard for me to put together. I’m not a book boyfriend kinda gal. However, here are some male characters that I really loved reading about!

Dean- Hopeless

There’s something about Dean that made me absolutely adore him. He was a complex character and I always enjoy that. His relationship with Sky melted my heart.

Four- Divergent

I loved Four. Such a strong character.

Jase- My Life Next Door

I liked that Jase was a good guy.

Billy- Billy and Me

Giovanna writes amazing male characters. There was something very appealing about Billy!

Etienne St Clair- Anna and The French Kiss

I think this guy might be on a few lists this week! I can imagine my younger self swooning over him!

Noah- Pushing The Limits

Noah touched my heart!

Cricket- Lola and The Boy Next Door

Cricket may have a silly name, but he stole my heart. I loved Cricket and Lola!

Matt- Flat Out series

I loved Matt’s geekiness!

Landon- A Walk To Remember

Such a beautiful book with wonderful characters!

Xander- The Distance Between Us

This book is just… adorable! I couldn’t get enough of reading about the character’s relationship!

Top Ten 2016 Releases So Far

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are my Top Ten 2016 releases so far! Most of the books I’ve read this year have been previous releases, so this list was somewhat tricky for me.

Highly Illogical Behaviour- John Corey Whaley

Highly Illogical Behavior

I read this book in early June and absolutely fell in love. It is one of my favourite books of 2016 so far. I highly recommend it, if you are interested in reading books about mental illness.

Orangeboy- Patrice Lawrence

Orangeboy

I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. I really loved the story. It involves drugs, gangs and drama. Not my usual sort of read, but I’m glad that I read it!

This Where It Ends- Marieke Nijkamp

This Is Where It Ends

I had been anticipating this book for a while now. Marieke is an old friend of mine and I was so ever so proud of her after reading this book.

When We Collided- Emery Lord

When We Collided

Even though this isn’t my favourite read by Emery Lord, I really enjoy her writing style, so it earns itself a place on my list!

Flawed- Cecelia Ahern

Flawed (Flawed, #1)

I have loved Cecelia’s adult books, so was excited to see what her YA book brought. I have to admit to being very impressed! I didn’t think I would be.

Radio Silence- Alice Oseman

Radio Silence

I preferred this book to Alice’s debut novel. I was really impressed by this story!

When I Was Invisible- Dorothy Koomson

When I Was Invisible

Again, not my favourite from the author, but it’s still a fantastic piece of women’s fiction!

Walk The Edge- Katie McGarry

Walk the Edge (Thunder Road, #2)

I always enjoy reading about the characters in a Katie McGarry story! This book was no exception.

You Know Me Well- Nina LaCour and David Levithan

You Know Me Well

I thought this was cute and easy to read. Just what you need sometimes!

The Unexpected Everything- Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything

Again, not my favourite Morgan Matson book ever, but still a good contemporary YA release for 2016!

As you can see, a lot of my favourites haven’t been 2016 releases. Nevertheless, these 10 books have been decent reads! What are your favourite 2016 releases so far? Feel free to leave a link to your post!

Walk The Edge (Thunder Road #2)

Walk the Edge (Thunder Road, #2)

How did I get it?:
I bought it!

Previously reviewed by the same author:

Pushing The Limits

Thunder Road 

Synopsis:

Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyber-bully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life.

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules.

And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here.

Thoughts:

I was really excited to start Walk The Edge. As you can tell from my previously reviewed section, I’m quite the fan of Katie McGarry’s work. I find her writing utterly addictive and whilst the plot can sometimes be a little far fetched it’s wonderful all the same.  I didn’t get on with Walk The Edge as much as I wanted to, but it was an enjoyable read nevertheless.

Prior to  Nowhere But Here I would’ve never considered reading a book centred around a motorcycle club, but Katie truly makes it work. This is partly down to the fantastic characters that Katie creates. I absolutely adored Breanna. She’s an incredibly easily to love character. Breanna is part of a huge family. She’s left to the sidelines and expected to look after her younger siblings. Breanna is bright and mature. I really felt for her. Her life wasn’t simple and there was so much expectation on her.

Breanna and Razor were a great couple. Razor certainly had his own issues going on, but I loved his geunine adoration for Breanna. They were a lovely couple. The reason why I didn’t rate this book even higher was because of Breanna’s family! They just really irritated me with their lack of interest in their daughter and their expectations for her. I do think that this book will entertain many

Would I recommend it?:
Yes!

A good addition to the Thunder Road series.
