The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson Review

Image
"It can take years to mold a dream. It takes only a fraction of a second for it to be shattered."  Upon opening the first page of the Kiss of Deception, Lia instantly pulled me onto her journey as she escaped an arranged marriage. Unlike other princesses, who lived a privileged life, she willingly adapt to her surroundings without any ounce of complain. She sassed ignorant headed men, waited tables, and lived life to the fullest. Once she set her heart to something, she does not change it, especially when it comes to love.

After the Rain by Renee Carlino Review

Image
"In all my years, I've learned that life delivers many storms for us to weather. Some will be slow, brooding, quiet beasts, and other will be loud, thunderous, and frightening. But if you're willing to look close enough, no matter how devastating the storm may be, after the rain you'll always find a new life sprouting in the aftermath." - Edith

DNF: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Image
The premise for Not a Drop to Dirnk by Mindy McGinnis distinct itself from other dystopian book, where society has a shorten water supply. Although it may seem very fiction, but this idea of water shorten is not make believe at all; it's actually one of the biggest environmental concern. I really wanted to see how the author spin off this problem.
