Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman  Expelled from yet another boarding school for hacking, sixteen-year-old Rebecca “Bec” Jackson is shipped off to Rome to intern for Parker Phillips, the editor-in-chief of one of the world’s top fashion magazines. But when a mysterious accident lands Parker in a coma, former supermodel and notorious drama queen Candace Worthington takes the reins of the magazine. The First Lady is in Rome for a cover shoot, and all hands are on deck to make sure her visit goes smoothly. Bec quickly realizes that Parker’s “accident” may not have been quite so accidental, and when the First Lady’s life is threatened, Bec is determined to uncover the truth. On top of that, Bec must contend with bitchy models, her new boss, Candace, who is just as difficult as the tabloids say, and two guys, a hunky Italian bike messenger with a thousand-watt smile and a fashion blogger with a razor-sharp wit, who are both vying for her heart. Can Bec catch the person who’s after the First Lady, solve the mystery of Parker’s accident, and juggle two cute boys at the same time? Blonde Ops is a fun, action-packed romp through the hallways of a fashion magazine and the cobblestone streets of Rome by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum  From the creators of Homeland and the Final Destination films, Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else.At first they called it system-wide malfunctions when the robots stopped fighting at exactly 2:15 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time, August 17, 2051. For twenty-two hours the battlefields were silent. Then when the bots began killing again, now targeting their human commanders, they shook their heads and called it fatal programming errors. When, a day later, the skies over cities on six continents grew dark with warships, they began to understand. And when the bombs rained down and legions of bot foot soldiers marched into the burning ruins, killing any humans who resisted and dragging away the rest, they finally called it what it was: revolution. Only a few escaped the robot war. Those who did lived in secret freeposts, hiding from the robot armies determined to control the human race. Nick, Kevin, and Cass are some of the lucky ones—they live with their parents in a secret human community outside the robot-controlled Cities. But when the bots discover their village and attack, the teens are forced to run. Determined to find out if their parents are alive, the three siblings venture into the heart of the robot City, where one misstep could be their last

Truly Madly Famously by Rebecca Serle

Truly Madly FAmously by Rebecca Serle is the second book in the Famous in Love series.  I read the first book,  Famous in Love and fell in love with the characters Paige, Rainer and Jordan. I love how this book picks up where the first book left off. Truly Madly Famously is about Paige and Rainer’s relationship once they get back to L.A.  but with a twist ending that you really do not see coming. I love how Rebecca Serle’s writing helps you get lost in the story. There are many parts of the story that you can relate to at any age.  A great young adult series!

From Amazon.com: After being plucked from obscurity, Hollywood’s newest It Girl, Paige Townsen, has a blockbuster film to her name and Rainer Devon on her arm. But being half of the world’s most famous couple comes with a price. No matter where Paige goes, someone is always watching. Soon she finds herself dodging photographers; hiding her feelings for her other costar, Jordan Wilder; and weathering tabloid scandals that threaten to tear her and Rainer apart–and end her career as quickly as it began. As she navigates her new L.A. life in this exciting sequel to Famous in Love, Paige finds that she doesn’t know who to trust: Old friends could be betraying her secrets, and new friends are keeping secrets of their own.

Famous In Love by Rebecca Serle Book Review

20170211_193104_resized.jpg

There has been a lot of talk surrounding the book Famous In Love by Rebecca Serle. There is even a new Freeform original series. I was not sure about this book at first. However, after a few pages I felt like I had to know what happens with Paige. This book is a great read if you are looking for something that is not only inspirational but a love story as well. I like how Rebecca Serle’s writing makes it easy to become one with the story making it hard to put down. The chemistry between Paige and Rainer makes it feel like a fairy tale in the making. But then Jordan shows up and puts a new twist in a soon to be love triangle. A must read if you are looking for a fun young love story. I look forward to reading the new book in this series, Truly Madly Famously.

Long Way Home by Katie McGarry

The first book I read in Katie McGarry’s A Thunder Road Series was Nowhere But Here. I fell in love with not only the series but also the writing style of Katie McGarry. I knew when Long Way Home was released that I had to read it. Let me tell you this is the best book in the series so far! I love the connection that Chevy and Violet have and the way that they deal with their relationship and the world outside of the Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club. This is the kind of book that is hard to put down. I stayed up all night and read from start to finish in one night. I cannot wait to read other books written by Katie McGarry. You can get your copy here.

From  Amazon.com:  Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life. But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror and what she thinks she wants. Which means reevaluating everything: love, family, friends…and forgiveness. Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.

Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

I just received the All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – White . I was so excited to see what all this Amazon Echo Dot would do. Let me tell you I am so impressed by this. I can ask Alexa to play music, give weather update, turn lights on/off, dim lights, wake me at 6am and play Jeopardy’s six question.  All I had to do was download the app and conect to wifi . The Echo Dot is a great addition to any home and with it being hands free it really comes in useful. I like the easy of use and far-field voice control. This would make a great present or stocking stuffer.
