Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded review by Mel

Image
***CAUTION: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***
Hannah Hart is my hero. She was one of the first youtubers that I watched on a continual basis. She's adorable, witty af and completely lovable. Of course this is all her persona. That's what she wants us to see.

Beneath the Tunes Day and My Drunk Kitchen is a woman with a life that we don't see every Tuesday or Thursday. A life where no one should have. In her short life of 29 years she's lives more than one lifetime. In this book she reveals stories and passages from her life that saddened me and made me want to hug her. 
This book is an autobiography of sorts that makes me want to hug Hannah and tell her she's doing just effing fine. To leave that ish behind her and move on to the amazingly bright future she has ahead of her. 
But sometimes you can't leave your past behind you. Ms. Hart shows you can triumph from wherever you started. Head up, stay strong and know good days are ahead and practice that Reckless Optimism.
Ha…

Beautiful Bombshel by Christina Lauren

***CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD***
And Ms. Lauren does it again! Usually shorter novellas don't carry the same punch or feel rush. I didn't feel cheated at all. I was thoroughly satisfied and ready for the next book in the series.
We follow Bennet and Max and their friend to Vegas where they thought they would have a stag party. Little did they know, that wouldn't be the case. 
Christina does something that I haven't seem much of... she wrote a book/novella from four points of view. Which I thought would be a little difficult the keep up but it was suprisingly amazingly written- beautifully executed. 
If you're interested to read about Max, Bennett and their friend's wild ride in Vegas please pick up Beautiful Bombshell.

Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren review by Mel

***CAUTION: CONTAINS SPOILERS***



Review on Beautiful Player: We find ourselves with Will and Hannah. Will we met a in previous Beautiful books. Like the Vegas book where he gave shit to Max and Bennett for being lovesick puppies. And little did her know...

Hannah is a nerdy grad student who works in a lab and had very little of a life. When her brother and dad go to visit, her brother suggest going out and having some fun with his old best friend, Will.
Will has rules. Rules he lives by. Rules he never breaks. Until Hannah.
Hannah has her lab. She works hard. But hardly ever plays. And when she played in the past, it wasn't the way Will plays. Will she learn to play?
During this book Hannah and Will have to battle their own worst enemies... themselves and their preconceived notions of themselves. Can they look past what they are used to and figure out rules are sometimes meant to be broke if it means finding happiness in each other?
I cannot wait to continue to read about them and…

Beautiful Stranger (A The Beautiful Series Book) by Christina Lauren review by Mel

***CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD*
Addictive. Passionate. Unfuckingbelievably smokin' hot. I want a Max in my life (perspective: I haven't liked men in a really long time). And I want to be Sara when I grow up (perspective: even though she's younger than me). And honest to goodness page turner.

Angel by Dani Wyatt Review by Mel

***MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***
We meet out wilderness ruff and tuff man of the book, Magnus who has fallen for our woman lead, Chastity aka Angel. I was excited from the book description. I always like me a curvy girl romance novel. 
Well, not always. :(
I wanted to very badly to like this book, I did as I do all the books I start to read. But I met my match. This has only happened to me a few times in my book reading history that I couldn't finish this book. 
Maybe it was my daddy issues or the fact that she's way too submissive and just accepting of everything he tells her (from what I read) but my stomach turned everytime they had dialogue together.
I am so sorry, Ms. Wyatt but this was not the book for me. Like I said, I wanted so very badly to like it and fall in love with this couple. I just couldn't. I wish you all the best in future endeavors. 
Happy Reading, Mel
ps- My mother always told me if you have nothing to say you should say nothing at all. Well no, that's…
