Book Quest: Summer Secrets by Barbara Freethy

Summer Secrets by Barbara Freethy

    I bought this book when I was in my senior year. If it was not for our book review assignment, I won't be able to read any novel except Hush, Hush. Thanks to my teacher, though.

   It is a family story about the McKenna Sisters and their father, Duncan McKenna . They won the annual Castleton Sailboat Race eight years ago. But behind that journey towards to fame, a secrets lies…

   Taylor Jamison will run over the lives of the McKenna family to unveil their secret. But above all, he came for the reason that will change his life forever…

My rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Here's the reviews from the http://www.barbarafreethy.com/products/summer1/


“Freethy skillfully keeps the reader on the hook, and her tantalizing and believable tale has it all– romance, adventure, and mystery.” Booklist
“Freethy’s zesty storytelling will keep readers hooked, and the sisters’ loving but prickly interactions will make anyone with a sibling smile.” Publisher’s Weekly

“SUMMER SECRETS is a knock-your-socks-off tale of deception, family, and love. Master storyteller Barbara Freethy draws readers into the characters’ lives on the first page and keeps them engrossed and enthralled to the end. This riveting tale of love and forgiveness, of letting go and beginning anew will resonate in readers’ hearts long after the last page is turned.” Romance Reviews Today

Love Charms: Single? Not a Problem!

     I am a proud Single Gal for....years :D . I can say that I am really proud of my relationship status; no boyfriend,no commitments, no hassle. Time and money saver.In fact, there's a deal between us girls that whoever will have a boyfriend should treat us!! haha! :D

      I also experienced being peer pressured. Even those I didn't expect to enter a relationship,had a boyfriend, did some PDAs and broke-up and find someone else *sighs*. During that time I feel so ugly because no one seems to notice me. I tried to dress up that time just for them to see I am beautiful, but then I only realized I was fake. I am just looking for someone to see the beauty in me, not a boyfriend. Soon I've realized that I have friends that love me and make me feel beautiful inside-out. And considering my age, I am not yet ready to have a commitment. Well, studies first right? It is now being paid off. I am now studying in one of the most prestigious universities in the country. Aside from that, I am still happy with my life.

      On the other hand, if you are on the right age and still think you don't attract boys, well don't freak out girl! Sooner or later you'll find the one for you. So while you are waiting for your Price Charming to arrive, remember to CREATE A PERFECT YOU. Make yourself a fully grown woman, perfectly, for you. Set goals for yourself like finishing studies and/or having a stable job. That would be an investment that you'll gonna call ASSETS.  Beautifully carve your body to the shape you want or learn how to play an instrument. But most especially make the very BEST of YOU, not of someone else's. Remember, the personality is what guys see and what they really look for if they want a real commitment.

Being Single? No problem,actually! :D

Lots of Love Charms,
Snowflake Girl

Book Quest: Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick

 Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


A friend introduced this book to me about a year ago and I really regretted why I didn't open it right away!!
    From wizards to vampires and werewolves ( I really liked HP series), here's a new twist of young adult fictional novel.
    
     Hush, Hush is a book about a teen-age girl named Nora who fell in love with Patch, a fallen angel.  She knows there is something mysterious about Patch, she is trying to know. But her involvement to him just caused her too many danger, even the danger of falling in love with him.

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

  I was really amazed by the twist in the story. In fact, I look so stunned when I'd finished the book.
