Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.


Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.
As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.
Well, and the stalkerazzi.

Review: The Making of Nebraska Brown by Louise Caiola


Publication date: February 2, 2014
Pages: 319
Source: Received Review Copy

Synopsis

The last thing eighteen-year-old Ann Leigh remembers is running from her boyfriend in a thick Nebraska cornfield. This morning she’s staring down a cool Italian sunrise, an entire continent from the life she once knew. The events of the eighteen months in between have inexplicably gone missing from her memory.

All at once she’s living with Tommy, an attractive, young foreigner asking for her continued love. Though he’s vaguely familiar, she recalls a boy named Shane in America who she reluctantly agreed to marry. Juggling a new world while her old one is still M.I.A is difficult enough without the terrifying movie scenes spinning a dizzy loop in her mind: glimpses of a devastating house fire, a romance gone wrong, an unplanned pregnancy, and a fractured family – each claiming to be part of who she once was – a girl and a past somehow discarded.

Ann Leigh must collect the pieces of herself to become whole again, but she doesn’t know who to trust especially when Tommy’s lies become too obvious to ignore. And above all, her heart aches to discover what became of the child she may or may not have given birth to.

The Making of Nebraska Brown tells the story of one girl’s coming apart from the inside and the great lengths she’ll go to reclaim herself and find her way home.

My Thoughts

Ok so I am really confused on how should I start this review, I have already erased and rewritten the first line almost ten times. I mean I don't know what to say, I can't find proper words, adjectives that could define the awesomeness of this book.

I am blown away by the writing, twists n turns, THE plot and life of the book the protagonist Ann Leigh.

I read this book on a train ride while returning from my holidays, when I was bored to death since I was traveling alone but then when I started reading this book I didn't needed anyone it was me and Ann Leigh. Yep I was drawn into Ann's world the moment I read first few paragraphs at first guessing what is happening and then hoping for Ann to find her missing self. 

Let's talk about the two main characters Ann Leigh and Tommy. My favorite was the protagonist Ann Leigh, she is a fighter, a strong and determined girl with big dreams. Tommy is a son of a big businessman, charming but a double faced person (and I hate such people). With Tommy it was love-hate relationship throughout the story, I became a fan when he helped Ann initially but then his other persona came up where he is not so caring and dominant. Like in Ann's words:
             "There was a reason I'd fallen for Thomas Borelli. He was Charming" 
But once the truth came out his charm was nothing and I hated him.

As for Ann Leigh, I loved her, connected with her and prayed for her. I can only imagine what she had to go through when her mind was just popping up some random memories of her's which she couldn't recognize. This misery and mystery of her's didn't let me sleep the entire night until Ann and I knew what is the Truth. 

The writing is fabulous, Louise Caiola did a fantastic job, she weaved such an amazing mystery that I felt so much connected to Ann like I was her friend and a part of the plot. It was a roller-coaster ride of emotions, guessing, hoping, cursing and praying. This one is by far the best story I have read this year.

5 out of 5 
This is the easiest 5 I have ever given to any book. I am eagerly looking forward for the other works by the author.

Please do give this one a chance. Give Ann Leigh a chance.

This Week's Question

Tell us about a book that you didn't like and why we shouldn't read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible)

I won this book named Secret of the Scribe and this was my first book from goodreads' first reads giveaway. I was super excited about this one but when I started reading it after few pages I realized "This one is not for me" beacuse I couldn't get into the plot and whatever was happening all went right past my understanding. Then after sometime I started getting these guilt pangs for DNFing the book and still get those so I keep trying to find someone who can read and review it but till now a friend has already tried (and DNFed it for same reason) and now another friend who my last hope is planning to read it (I hope he has some better and thoughtful views then mine).



¡Hasta la vista!

This weeks Question


Late April Fools. What was the best prank you've played or had played on you? Share!


My Answer:

I am not that much into april fool pranks and its the same for my friends.Therefore I expected a quiet april fool this year too but sadly I was wrong.This year they hid my laptop and claimed that the matron had come to my room to confisticate my laptop.I still can't believe I believed them without even thinking that why on earth would she take my laptop but I was literally freaking out when I could not find my laptop anywhere.So in the end when I ran to the matron for an explanation ,she looked at me as if I had grown two heads or something and my friends were busy laughing at my expense behind me.


That's all Folks..!!
Feel free to share your favourite april fool pranks..!!

Cover Reveal :You Make Me by Erin McCarthy




BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:

You Make Me by Erin McCarthy 
Publication date: April 21st 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

The guy she wants…

Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath.  Then he left without a word.  The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy.  But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.

Isn’t the guy she needs…

Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend.  Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm.  He also gives her the social acceptance she craves.
But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere.  Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don’t make sense to anyone but her.  Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…
And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?
