Review: How to Date an Alien


How to Date an Alien
How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I won this book through goodreads and I must say that it is an excellent read.

Alex the MC is trying to get into Columbia University, but is lacking some extracurricular activities. She decides to take on an internship at her dads "military base Circe", which she comes to find out aliens are working with humans. She is just blown away when she arrives and even is attacked upon arriving. However, like a knight in shining armor, Ace comes to the rescue.

Ace is an alien, and a Caltian at that. Which you learn are like the "jocks" of high school. Alex is drawn to Ace and ends up being his partner working at the base. Relationships between humans and aliens is against the rules, but that does not stop these two star crossed lovers. Things start to hit the fan when Ace and Alex start dating. People are trying to keep them away, but they end up going through a big mess to save each other’s lives. This book has a mix of a Romeo & Juliet vibe to it.


This overall is a good book; I love the way that Magan Vernon wrote and some of the things she came up with to just help get that "mental picture". I am sure I have never read an alien based book, but I am always up to reading something new. I decided to try it and loved it. Can not wait to read the next book in this series!

Review: Sweetness


Sweetness
Sweetness by Lindsay Paige

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I got asked to review Sweetness and I am very glad that I accepted. This book deals with a lot of emotional issues, that are very realistic.

The MC Emily is a new girl in town, she is very quiet and keeps to herself. Her mother has done and said terrible things that she will never forget. In class one day she gets paired with Jake, he also has issues that he deals with. He has lost his mother to cancer and his dad drinks his problems away every night leaving Jake to take care of his little brother Drake. Once paired, Jake tries to learn more about Emily and figure out the way she is. Little by little Emily starts opening up about her past. But can Jake help Emily mend her broken heart?

I feel the book left me with a huge cliffhanger! I can not wait to read the second book in this series. It was a short, yet emotional story. I do recommend this book to others. It will leave you hooked, wanting to read the next book.
