Here Without You by Tammara Webber

Holy crap did this month fly by! It's already the last week of Tammara Webber month.

I hope you all have enjoyed the reviews and have been taking advantage of the sale going on for the first 3 books!

Between The Lines, Where You Are, and Good For You will only be on sale for the rest of the month then it goes back to the regular pricing. Sooooo go pick them up for $1.99 while you still can!

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore, and Kobo! (BTW this is only for the US ebook copies I believe.)

Enjoy the review for the final book in the BTL series!




I have to admit that when I finished this book I let out the biggest sigh ever.
It. Was. So. Good.
You know how series sometimes get worse as the books go on or they go back and forth? It's like one book is wonderful and then it goes to crap and then good again?
This series is SO not like that. Seriously they just keep getting better!
I was really excited for this book but nervous at the same time. Not that I doubted that Tammara Webber would deliver another exceptional novel, I was just worried about Brooke being such a big part in this installment.
I can tell you now that it was stupid to worry. This book was exceptional.
I can also now say that I love Brooke.
WHAT?!
Yeah I know I never thought i'd say that either!
You learn earlier in the books that Reid had gotten Brooke pregnant when they were younger. She had given up the baby but now regrets it.
Throughout the book you follow Reid and his relationship with Dori but you also follow Reid and Brooke develop a special bond while trying to get custody of their child.
At first Reid is hesitant about Brooke wanting to find their son but eventually his feelings change.
I LOVED reading about Brooke, Reid and their son River.
I felt like Tammara did a wonderful job at making Brooke more likeable. There were times were I wished she were real so I could just hug the crap out of her.
I don't think i've ever read a book series with such incredible character building.
I'm also very happy to say that I got to read a little more about my loves Graham and Emma. :)
This book was definately worth the wait. I'm just as in love as I was with the first book.
The feels you get in this book are crazy! I would literally laugh out loud in some spots and i'm not ashamed to admit that I cried a couple times.
I also have to say that the bond between Reid and River made my heart all sorts of happy!
Tammara Webber you're my hero.
Seriously peeps check this series out!

Good For You by Tammara Webber

Woo hoo third week of Tammara Webber month!

This weeks review is of Good For You which is one of my favorite book in the series!

Like the two reviews before this I wrote this write after I read this book so you'll get a "just read" review :)

Also in case you haven't read the last to reviews and you don't know this then let me just tell you (or refresh your memory)
The first 3 books in this series are on sale for $1.99 for the month of September on kobo, ibookstore, amazon and barnes and noble.

Enjoy!!!!




Is it legal to marry a book? If it is then i'm getting married in about 5 minutes when I finish this review!
I LOVED this book. Like really LOVED it!
When I finished the second book "Where You Are" I was super excited to read more about Emma, Graham and Reid. When I went to purchase the third book I found out that it was about Reid and a girl that hadn't been introduced yet.
I love Reid. However I saw a review and this girl said that while she'd never liked Reid this ended up being her favorite book out of the 3. So I went into this with a good attitude.
I LOVED it.
If you've read the first two books (which you better have otherwise SPOILERS!) then you know that Reid is a playboy. He had Emma for a little while in the first book but she obviously was made for Graham.
In the VERY begining of this book Reid has to do community service because he drove drunk (bad Reid) and wrecked his car into the side of a habitat for humanity house. Coinsidentaly this is where his community service takes place.
It's here he meets Dori. At first I wasn't sure what to think about her. I mean she's awesome and super likeable...it's just that i've grown to love Reid and I didn't want anybody messing with him.
They end up starting to like each other (durp) and Reid starts becoming a better person. They are a fantastic couple and watching Reid grow in this book is heartwarming. He's so wonderful. They are wonderful. Ahhhh. Sweet bliss.
I actually think I almost like this book best. It's just so great to see such a character development. It's so dang good people. So dang gooooood.
Anyways this book is definately being recommended to you by mwah. So go read this series. Please. You won't regret it.
P.S. I almost forgot! There are references to Emma and Graham (still doing strong mhmm) and you also get to see some of the characters from the previous 2 books. So that's always fun.
P.S.S. Tammara Webber could you write another book about Emma and Graham and another about Reid and Dori. Please.

Where You Are by Tammara Webber

Yay week two of Tammara Webber month!


As i've said multiple times I freaking LOVE Tammara Webber : )



This week i'll be reviewing the second book in the BTL series called Where You Are.



I wrote this review back in Janauary right after I finished the book.



Also before I forget the first 3 books in the series are only $1.99 for the month of September on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore, and Kobo.

Enjoy!!

Sweet heavenly book goodness! This was sooooooo good! Oh gosh I just can't begin to explain how much I enjoyed this book.

If you read my review for the first book then you KNOW how much I love these books! Ooooh Tammara Webber you be rockin' my fuzzy socks!
This book not only is Reid and Emma's point of view but also Brooke and (omg) Graham!
Ahhhh Graham. I just love him so. I mentioned he might be one of my favorite male characters in my last review and by gosh darn he's cemented his spot as a favorite!
In this installment you follow all four characters.
Graham and Emma are just so wonderful. She's in California and Graham is in New York so they have to do the dreaded long distance thing. But who the hell cares when you love each other that much?!
Reid however wants Emma back because he thinks she's shhhnazzy.
Brooke (grrrrr) wants Graham. What?! Ohhhh yes. So the evil *beep* devises a plan to break Graham and Emma up. Reid will get Emma and Brookie Monseter will get (my precious) Graham.
I got so flustered in this book and then hapy. It just messed with ALL my emotions.
I really really loved it though! So puh-lease check this series out.
This book be recommended yo. : )

Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As a Movie/ Televeision Show



10. Dash and Lilys Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist is already a movie so lets make this into one! It would be so much fun! I think it'd make a really cute date movie.


9. Paper Towns by John Green

I would've picked the Fault in Our Stars but since that's already being made into a movie i'll choose my second favorite John Green book. This book is so much fun and it makes me laugh so hard. I think it would be a perfect summer movie.


8. Wither trilogy by Lauren DeStefano

I am a HUGE fan of this trilogy! I would LOVE to see a movie series made out of these books. Ahh they'd be so good! They would be enjoyable because there aren't any movies with the same plot as the books. It would be so interesting to see this in a movie. Plus i'd really like to see who'd play Linden.


7. Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins

This would be a really cool tv show I think. There are enough books and enough characters that you would never get bored. It would be like Sabrina The Teenage Witch but even better :P


6. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

I would actually like to see this as a television show. I know it's a stand alone novel so you're probably like "There isn't enough that happens in the book to make this a television show." Well you're right. But they can make more happen duh. I would really like to see more of the characters have their own time and a tv show would do that.


5. Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella

I think this would make a hilarious movie! I saw Confessions of a Shopaholic which was also a Sophie Kinsella book and I thought it was super cute! Can You Keep A Secret is my favorite of her books and I think a movie would be so girly and adorable.


4. Between The Lines Series by Tammara Webber

I would love to see this series as a television show. So much happens during the four books that they could definatly feature in a show. The other bonus about it being a tv show instead of a movie is that I get more of the characters! :)


3. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Do I really need to tell you why i'd love to see this as a movie? Yes? Travis Maddox. That's why.


2. Rule by Jay Crownover

Um. Yum. This would be an amazing movie! To be able to see Rule and Shaw in person would be so cool! This should become a movie. Like now. Oooh boy would it be delicious.


1. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Daemon on the big screen? Hot damn. I would LOVE to see this series become a movie!

Between The Lines by Tammara Webber

Hellooooo fellow book lovers. : )

I've declared the month of September Tammara Webber month.

Why? Well because she's awesome of course.

I read the first 3 books in this series in January and was in freaking love with them! I read the 4th book as soon as it came out and it was just as good as the rest!

The reviews on the first 3 books were written in January after I read them so you will get "just read" reviews.

Also I wanted to let you all know that for the month of September the US ebook copies of Between The Lines, Where You Are, and Good For You are all on sale for $1.99! That's half off of what they usually are so definatly pick them up! (You can find them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore and Kobo.)

Here's the review!!!

I think I want to cry.
Words cannot beging to explain how much I loved this book.
I'm not going to lie when I say that I was hesitant to read this. I read "Easy" about 2 months ago and I just didn't love it AS much as everyone else. I don't think I was in the right mood for it.
Anyways when I saw this book I thought "Hey there's a concept i've not read before." and "Tammara Webber i've read you before and you're really good. Let's give you another shot."
Boy oh freaking boy am I glad I did!
This book is about Emma who is your typical 17 year old girl. Well if being a succesful actress in a major movie is typical.
Anywho she's started filming this remake of "Pride and Prejudice" with Hollywoods "it boy" Reid Alexander. The story goes back and forth between Emma's and Reid's point of view. If you read my review for "Pushing The Limits" then you know how much I LOVE TWO POINT OF VIEW STORIES!
As i'm sure you've guessed Reid starts to fall for Emma and she starts to kinda dig him a wee bit too. However another actor named Graham catches her eye. Graham and her begin to run eery morning and have these amazing conversations. Unfortunatly after one kiss, which he never mentions again, he pulls back a little.
All sorts of back and forth happens and yada yada love love smooch smooch.
I've never read a book like this before and i'm so stinking happy that I decided to go ahead with this one!
I LOVE Graham. I LOVE Graham and Emma! Don't fall off your seat when I say this but...Graham might be one of my favorite male characters...ever. GASP! Oh yes. I said it. Seriously pick up this book! DO IT!

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Books You'd Pair With "A Required Reading" or Books That Should Be Required Reading

I chose books that should be required reading because it was to hard for me to pick books to pair with a required reading book. I took the easy way I out I know. : )


10. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I pick this book because it deals with a lot of issues that I think kids could relate to. I mean Park doesn't feel like he's good enough and Eleanor is being harrassed in her own home. Unfortunatly I think a lot of kids can find them selves relating to this story.

9. Crank by Ellen Hopkins
Man once you read this book you're like "Psh i'm never ever ever doing drugs." That's good to teach in school right?

8. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
This book deals with an issue that is completely real. Therfore I think that it should be read in school.

7. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
This book is funny so it would keep students entertained but it also deals with homosexuality and other things. I think this is an excellent book to have kids read.

6. Divergent by Veroinca Roth
It's a dystopian that I believe will be a classic. I'm just thinking ahead of the game.

5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I don't believe I really need to tell you why this should be required reading.

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
When assigning this book teachers should say "Students this is what you don't want to happen to the world. So read the book and don't let this crazy stuff happen."

3. The Book Theif by Markus Zusak
I haven't actually read this book. AH! I know I know. But i've heard it's excellent. And from what i've read about it I do think it'd be a great required reading book.

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This book teaches you so much. It teaches you about life, friendship, grief. It's beautifully written and I think it should be required to read. It's just that freaking good.

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Again I don't feel like I need to explain why I chose this book. It's amazing first of all. The issues it deals will touch people. I love this book and I definatly no doubt about it think this should be required reading.
