I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Pretty Little Liars in Avery Aster’s new novel Always & Forever, Vive.

Operator: “911, what’s your emergency?”

“Help! I need help. My name is Viveca Farnworth. I’m in a high-rise on the Upper West Side. My friends, Lex, Taddy, Blake, and I are being held hostage by a lunatic with a gun.” I choked back a cry as the voice on the other line asked who’d abducted us. I swear on my Chanel handbag collection I’ve got the worst flippin’ luck ever! “It’s a fellow student…that I’ve been…dating,” I replied. Shit! He’s coming back. Hanging up, I slipped the cellphone in my pocket. He doesn’t know I have it.

With a body that’s ripped in all the right places, utterly gorgeous, and so freakin’ charming, I glared at him—part in fear, part in some freaky-deaky state of arousal. I couldn’t believe I’d fallen for this psycho. The sex had been so hot. Everything had been so perfect between us. I loved him. And now, he wants me and my Manhattanites…dead? But why? And what can I do to stop him?

The Undergrad Years is a new adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.

Love Target by Heidi Loeb Hegerich-review


Title: Love Target
Author:Heidi Loeb Hegerich
Genre:Chick lit, Romance
Pages:565 (I read paperback)
Published: May 3rd 2014 by Forever Young, LLC





My review:

      In the sixties Ingrid and her family moved in USA from Germany. Ingrid is sixteen years old, but with fake documents and her tall body she is looking as grown up. On her teenage state she experiences more than ever can experience on teenager. There are good and bad, twists and turns, but with all those things she becomes one strong person with one to get back in Germany. After Los Vegas she moved in New York and meets some special for her. His name is David. David wants to build the business in New York, but as Ingrid says:”That was New York. You either beat it, or city beat you.”
Whether she returns in Germany or she will switch her wish with another one?

     This book makes me to believe that I’m in USA in sixties and seventies, when hippie movement is in began to develop. I love the hippie movement, their ideals and their style (or no style) in every part of their life: in fashion and hair style and how they lived their lives. Besides there is Elvis Presley and all singing and movie star from this age. I like Elvis songs and movies, so considering that he is shows up here I like this book too.

    Ingrid is young girl, who just wants to live her life that she knows, back in Germany chatting and hanging up with her best friend. But her parents moved their family in USA for better life and all those kid’s ideas for life are despaired for Ingrid. In USA she had some big changes and turns which makes her to grow up faster and on her teenage she become woman. The author describes Ingrid’s life and all those things which happen to her with dialogues then with her own thoughts and feelings.

  There is more action, dialogues, then thinking and reasoning things. I like the age that is describe in book, then I like descriptions of Ingrid, how she grows and is self person.
This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
My rating 5/5(amazing)

Question of the Week:If you can step into one characters shoes (in a book) and be them for a day who would it be and why?Also if you want to be creative what scene? via Seeing Night Book Reviews

 My answer:

I like this question very much. I could choose few or many characters who I want to be for a day, but one will be fine, then I choose Rebecca Bloomwood:
She is very funny and intelligent character, she is persistent, but she has one flaw: she is shopaholic. Rebecca is main character in the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella in the book not in the movie,because in the movie they show her as not so intelligent.
