Have you read this terrifying page-turner yet Great MC and fantastic flow in the writing. Couldn’t put it down! Summary below:
Even under the most normal circumstances, high school can be a painful and confusing time. Unfortunately, Lilianna’s circumstances are anything but normal. Only a few people know what caused her sudden change from model student to the withdrawn pessimist she has become, but her situation isn’t about to get any better. When people begin coming down with a quick-spreading illness that doctors are unable to treat, Lil’s worst fears are realized. With her parents called away on business before the contagious outbreakher father in Delaware covering the early stages of the disease and her mother in Hong Kong and unable to get a flight back to New JerseyLil’s town is hit by what soon becomes a widespread illness and fatal disaster. Now, she’s more alone than she’s been since the “incident” at her school months ago.
With friends and neighbors dying all around her, Lil does everything she can just to survive. But as the disease rages on, so does an unexpected tension as Lil is torn between an old ex and a new romantic interest. Just when it all seems too much, the cause of her original trauma shows up at her door. In this thrilling debut from author Yvonne Ventresca, Lil must find a way to survive not only the outbreak and its real-life consequences, but also her own personal demons.

Nadhira tersenyum getir menghadapi kebisuan cowok di depannya. Perlakuan seperti ini sudah menjadi makanan bagi Nadhira selama 2 minggu belakangan. Katakanlah, dia sudah terbiasa. Kurang cukup sepertinya menjadi tong sampah, sekarang dia merasa menjadi seperti keset yang diinjak-injak harga dirinya oleh Biru. Sayangnya, Biru yang membuat Nadhira tak lagi bisa berhenti. Jadilah gadis itu tetap disini. Setia menemani Biru tanpa mengacuhkan kedinginan yang teradiasi dari kebekuan sikapnya.
Bibir laki-laki itu pada akhirnya mengeluarkan sebuah suara parau "saya sesak melihat kamu." "Untuk ukuran penyair sekelas kamu, saya mulai merasa saraf kamu ikut rusak setelah tawuran. Apa perang itu juga membawa pergi kontainer kata-kata puitis kamu" -

⭐⭐⭐⭐Bro Code by @kendallryan1 is a sweet, sexy, fun read that left me smiling and swooning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's told from dual POV so we get in both Barrett and Ava's head.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Barrett is Ava's older brother's best friend. He's an attorney, trying to make partner at his firm, and lives a few hours away from the small town they grew up in. She's planning to take over her father's company after his health pushed him into an early retirement - not an easy task as she's desperately trying to save it from being ran into the ground. They've known each other forever but have never been more than friends.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I enjoyed that Ava was strong and knew what she wanted. She wasn't afraid to voice it and go after it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I don't like being told what to do unless I'm naked." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is definitely a mutual attraction between the two, that chemistry! But Barrett fights it, because Bro Code and all, until he can't. And when they finally give in to it Holy hotness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Surprisingly I didn't see that twist coming in the story and it surprised me. The "I hate you" broke my heart a little :( Thankfully it was put back together again - I loved the conclusion to their story. The sacrifice and commitment Barrett showed towards Ava. Swoon.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"And if I wanted to really analyze the hows and whys of our relationship, it really started decades ago when a girl fell in love with her brother's best friend." ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

While we celebrate gardens around the world this weekend, a travelling book fairy is dropping books in green spaces around Singapore.
Her first book drop was at the Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands against the gorgeous lotus pond at the entrance.
Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
A love story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart

🇪🇸Tracy Chevalier es una de esas escritoras a las que puedo volver para sentirme como en casa. Este libro fue un regalo de @meganaliciaberry que tiene muchos recuerdos metidos entre las páginas. 🇬🇧@tracychevalierwriter is one of those authors that I can always come back to to feel at home. This one was a present that has many memories intertwined between its pages.

👉 prompt 'Quotable King' via #CircleOfBookishFriends... that's right
#MotherHorror is back! 👍😃
As I've said before I think the The Dark Tower graphic novels are better than the original books... I love how they expand the universe, fill in back stories and in the comic book version add more depth and history in the 'extras.'
I think the greatest adaptation that transcended its original is Battlestar Galactica 2004. What is your favourite updated version that you think transcended it's original work Let's try not to suggest your second wife, second husband or second child! 😃😁
👉 prompt #FreeComicBookDay via (they're back!) #grimdragon
👉 prompt 'five' via #ampersand --- I only have the first FIVE books in the series, and really need to get off my lady ass and get the rest.
Still rewatching Dexter... loving Debra Morgan all over again 😎👍... watching season four, and lady night this:
Angel: "What about him. Do you find him attractive Do you I mean, would you ever"
Debra: "I would rather put a campfire out with my face." 😂😂😂

Is it heresy to take out the Oxford commas in my newly edited middle school novel
I personally find them visually distracting (even though I know they can add clarity).
Example with: “My fingers scrambled through duct tape, birthday candles, and takeout menus.”
Without: “My fingers scrambled through duct tape, birthday candles and takeout menus.”
Advice and opinions needed!
Thanks to @forests_and_fairytales for today’s lovely photo!! I cannot wait until more flowers are in bloom!!
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far! I am exhausted it was a long night at work and I had to go to another hospital to pick up a sick kid. But we got to run lights and sirens in the ambulance!! I always feel like a little kid getting so excited about going so fast and everyone parting for us!! Any way...I am now going to bed so have a lovely weekend friends!!!
Loving the Spanish edition of @sam_aye_ahm's LOVE, HATE & OTHER FILTERS 🇪🇸 👌

In a small town, rumor is everything…
Life came easy to him.
Town playboy Aidric Jones has it all: money, women, a life without responsibility. Until his house burns down and a daughter he doesn't know lands on his doorstep. No one expects him to step up, to grow up, but he finds disappointment is different when someone is counting on him.
And everyone is whispering…
Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks everyone knew Olivia Buckley was going to end up pregnant and stuck in River City with a deadbeat boyfriend. Now she’s a single mom working for her parent’s construction company, unable to escape a reputation she hates. She’s fighting like hell to make a life for herself and her son, to prove everyone wrong.
They’re two people with nothing in common except a falling down house, two angry kids, and a town full of rumors--but maybe that’s enough
They’ll give them something to talk about…

“Well, Derby,” he said, as cool as the tea wasn’t, “sometimes big hearts make bad decisions.” Follow along as Derby tries to make the ones she loves happy, it’s sometimes a very bumpy ride trying to figure out just what they need. This is perfect for your baseball and softball loving fans!
Jock Row was such a fun read! I adore the main characters, Scarlett and Rowdy. I don't know how you could read this book and not have a good time. The tension and anticipation is so toe curling. I'm going to keep this short and just say that you need to read this book if you are looking for a fun, sweet romance.
Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you're worshiping the porcelain gods.
Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends—the universities hottest party scene and breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble, and guys out of their pants, was a sport, she'd be the star athlete.
Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she's banned from Jock Row. NO GUY WANTS A GIRL AROUND WHO KEEPS THEIR JOCK FRIENDS FROM GETTING LAID. "Rowdy" Wade is the hot shot short-stop for the university's baseball team—and the unlucky bastard who drew the short straw: keep little Miss Goody Two-Shoes out of the Baseball House.
But week-after-week Scarlett returns, determined to get inside.

I never draw real people these days because I can't do their beautiful faces justice and just end up disappointing myself and not wanting to draw ever again 😆😅 But I took a break from my studying and did a quick sketch of Emory Cohen because I've seen Brooklyn twice now and still haven't gotten enough of it.
Sometimes you find a story you connect to on such a deep level that you can't even describe it and the characters stay inside your head for weeks and you have to revisit their world regularly or you die inside 😄✨ That's how much I love Brooklyn.
