TOP TEN TUESDAY – Books We Loved but Will Never Re-Read

Top Ten Tuesday.13

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
This week is Books We Loved but Will Never Re-Read
Seems like an easy enough TTT right?!  Wellllllllll this created the most hilarious, drama inducing texts.  You see, we’re really possessive and sensitive when it comes to our book boyfriends.  Arielle put The Selection which has Chelsea’s Maxon.  Chelsea put Anew which has my Tristan and she also put Safe Haven which has Josh Duhamel on the cover (I’ve loved him for-ev-er), and I put The Fever Series which has Chelsea’s Jericho.  Words were said, people tried to explain themselves and well it ended up being an emotional mess!  At the end of it all we were laughing so hysterically that both Chelsea’s husband and mine asked us why we were laughing so hard.  What was so funny?  HA!  It was so ridiculous and hilarious and we definitely proved how loyal we are to our book boys!!  So here the books we won’t ever read again……

1. Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning
Amazon * Goodreads
If a series has more books than thee books then I find myself needing the romance to play a more dominant role.  And while this series is still one of my favorites, and I loved Mac and Barrons, the element of romance was definitely lacking for me.  So I can’t ever see myself reading these books again.

2. Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
Amazon * Goodreads
I loved this trilogy.  And I more than got why it had to end the way it did.  I think I was one of the rare ones, since I thought it ended the way it should.  But I have no desire to revisit the inevitable heartache all over again.

3. Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy #1) by Danielle L. Jensen
Amazon * Goodreads

I absolutely loved this book!  It was beautiful, enchanting and I swore it would become one of my favorite series.  Ever.  But the last book RUINED this series for me.  It was nothing like the first book I fell in love with and I was left extremely bitter and angry about the ending.  Yes I know I’m emotional lol.  So not only will I not ever pick this book back up again but I will never read anything by this author again too.

4. Love Show by Audrey Bell
Amazon * Goodreads
Jack was one of the most EPIC boys ever….and I believe he was truly screwed over in this story. It sold him short and this book broke me into a million pieces. Yes-it has a HEA. No. It did not make me happy [after the shit show in the end]. Sometimes one moment alters a whole novel-this is the case here, unfortunately. #BITTER.

5. Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
Amaon * Goodreads
Amazing book. Amazing boy. Amazing story. I fell hard. I fell fast. Author changed my boy’s personality to the point of no recognition. AUTHOR IS ON AUTO DO-NOT-READ list. Chelsea is FURIOUS. #BITTERER  (Jen agrees with this too!)

6. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
Amazon * Goodreads
Yeah, random. I literally JUST saw this movie playing on tv yesterday…was so excited Because I loved the book AND movie…until I started watching and realized I now am married AND have a girl AND-when I saw him moving on with another woman and they start talking about his dead wife (he also has children)-I can’t 🙌. Just can’t. Tap out. I started BAWLING. #DidISayBitter ?

Arielle’s Choice

7. Anew (The Archers of Avalon #1) by Chelsea Fine
Amazon * Goodreads
This series, frankly, is really only a case of being underwhelmed by the final book and everyone else I read it with LOVING THE END. Nothing kills a reading boner like being  the loser in the group wondering why you’re broken lol. #NotSoBitter

8. Paper Princess (The Royals #1) by Erin Watt
Amazon * Goodreads
This is one of those books and series that people either loved or hated when it came out.  I personally am OBSESSED  with Elle Kennedy’s writing (who is half of the Erin Watt pseudonym) but this series turned a little too wildly unbelievable and dramatic with people mysteriously coming back from the dead and even just the blown up reputation of the Royal boys for me to make any recs.  

Arielle’s Choice

Arielle’s Choice

9. The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass
Amazon * Goodreads

Don’t get me wrong, I ate these books up when they came out during the time of the dystopian craze.  It was a fresh new premise that no one had really done before but in the end, Cass didn’t pull it off to my liking.  There wasn’t nearly enough world building and I felt like there was way too much skipped over and left unexplained in favor of the romance (which to me isn’t really what dystopians are all about).

10. Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel
Amazon * Goodreads
It’s been so long since I’ve originally read this series that I can’t even really tell you what they were about.  I do know that I read them as soon as they each came out and loved them at the time but when I stumbled across them on one of my shelves on Goodreads, the ONLY thing I could remember was that the two main characters spend the ENITRE series trying to reverse this weird curse in which they hadn’t been able to have skin-to-skin contact so they could pick up where they had been disrupted by some ordeal in the first book and have sex–I wish I was kidding.


So these are the Books We Loved but Will Never Re-Read. Do you have any of these books on your won’t-ever-read-again-list?  Or are you upset to see any of them on here….like we were with each other lol!

BOOK REVIEW – Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot

BOOK REVIEW – Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne EliotUnmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot
Purchase on: AmazoniBooks
Book Depository
Add to: Goodreads


After a car accident--an event he considers a prank gone bad--jaded pop star, Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He’s supposed to rest, heal his scars and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work.

Worse, the girl who’s been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie, a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He’s never met a girl who’s never-been-kissed, believes in romance and thinks Hunter’s a 'nice' guy.

Funny thing is…Hunter is nice around Vere because she’s his first real friend. He also can’t seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he’d never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone, and helps his new bestie with her own makeover.

She tortures him daily for ridiculous guy advice on how to snag her life-long crush. A guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere, and sadly, one who has taken note of Vere’s stunning transformation.

When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can’t resist.
And that’s when things get out of control…


Unmaking Hunter Kennedy was such a cute read!  The story-line was adorable, while also being deep at times, and I loved Hunter right away.  While I had some hiccups here and there, I’m definitely going to pickup another book by this author.  There was a lot of promise for me, and I’m hoping that I’ll mesh a little bit better with the next story.  It’s about Hunter’s band mate.

This situation was his fault. He’d really messed up. Taken things between him and his mom way, too far.
And then he’d taken them further.
Done some really stupid, scary shit. Even scared himself.
He pulled his hands deep into his sleeve cuffs.

From that first chapter I spent with Hunter, my heart quickly connected to him.  He’d been in a locked down therapy/rehab facility for the last six weeks because of what he did.  While we were not initially given every piece to the puzzle, what I did know about his past made my heart hurt.  Yes Hunter was extremely famous, yes he had some twisted people in his life, and yes he had a skewed way of viewing others.  But underneath it all, I felt his pain and also his unease. After learning that he was being shipped to Colorado, to live his life out of the fame and spotlight, I got why he fought it.  Yet it was obvious how much he desperately needed change. And Colorado did just that.

Vere finally seemed to regain some control and held up her own hands in front of her, all while aiming a small, ball-of-death-glower onto everyone in the room. “No. Offense. Back. But I can take care of myself. I can certainly drag this spoiled, rock-and-roll-prince shopping for ugly clothes and drive him to the lake cabin without getting mauled or pregnant!”
Mrs. Roth gasped.
Hunter bit back another huge laugh.
Double entertainment.

Upon arriving in Colorado, Hunter met his Great Aunt’s neighbors, Vere and Charlie Roth.  They were going to be the ones to help him out with his unmaking, so no one would recognize him.  And right from the start, I was beyond entertained with how Hunter and Vere interacted. They were smile inducing.  But Vere and I did have some trouble connecting in the beginning.  When I got to the first chapter from her pov, I was shocked with how boy obsessed yet awkwardly shy she was.  It was painful for me to read some of the scenes. But after a few chapters, I couldn’t help but like this adorable girl.  I found myself hoping that Vere would be braver, and that’s where Hunter, who was now going by Dustin, came in. 

He laughed low and ran a finger along the top of her mouth. His touch sent shivers of sparkles down the back of her neck. “You have heart shaped lips in a heart shaped face. Has anyone ever told you? This one—this top lip alone—could drive a guy out of his mind?”

You see, Vere didn’t really know who Hunter was.  While her brother was obsessed, Vere easily treated him like a family friend and she would even give Hunter attitude from time to time.  Which seemed like a first for him lol. Over time, Vere helped Hunter see that the world didn’t just want him for something and Hunter helped Vere be comfortable around the opposite sex.  Their friendship was slow yet, when they made that connection, they bonded deeply. They confessed things to each other and were the best friends in every way possible.  Yet Hunter started to feel things for his bff. And what’s a guy to do?

One kiss. One kiss. One kiss.
If he agreed, he would be an absolute ass.
And an idiot. That much was obvious.
But he’d been an ass before, and an idiot ever since he let himself fall in love with this amazing girl.
Why stop the stupid-train now?

So yes, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy was a super cute, heartwarming story.  But like I said, I had a few hiccups.  The guy, Curtis, that Vere has had a crush on forever?  He was a complete and total douche bag. And it bothered me that Vere’s brother, Charlie, thought that Vere and Curtis would be a good thing.  But you see, I wasn’t the biggest fan of her brother either. Yes Charlie could be wonderfully protective of Vere, but he could also treat others so awfully.  But besides my personal preferences for characters, I felt that some of their conversations or internal monologues went on much longer than I liked. Which made me want to skim from time to time.  And when you couple that with some spelling errors, you can see why I had a few hiccups. But still, this book was beyond adorable and so much fun! So I’m definitely hoping that I end up loving Runaway Girl even more!

Sunny’s not sure she’s even looking for Mr. Maybe, when her friends decide to find her Mr. Right. Sunny Vale considers herself a dog-loving, romance-reading homebody. But her life goes from dull to deadly when her book club fires her from her own love life and sets her up on six blind dates--one of whom might be with a murderer.

More trouble arrives in the dead of night, in the form of Jake Landon, a mysterious stranger, who breaks into her neighbor’s house and possibly her heart. But Jake is packing more than a loaded gun in his well-fitting Levi’s. He brings an arsenal of secrets and plenty of heat to Sunny’s ho-hum summer.

Jake Landon finds himself caught up in the capers of the sexy blonde in the house next door. But he has his own agenda which doesn’t involve playing hero to a curvy second-grade teacher and babysitting her panty-puking puppy. He's got other problems like fiery explosions, a missing person...and a parade of jerks Sunny insists on dating. Could Sunny’s Mr. Right be right under her nose? Even though Jake is gorgeous, likes her dog, and has abs she can crack an egg on, can she really go out with him if he’s just murdered her next door neighbor?


Have you ever picked up a book because of someone else’s recommendation, even though that genre wasn’t really your thing?  Because that was me.  I’m not really into chick lit or mysteries anymore.  I’ve liked plenty in the past, but they haven’t worked for me in the last few years.  Yet I trusted an author whose books I love, and picked up a sample on Amazon. I was happily surprised that when I got to the end of the sample, I had to have more!  So I went and bought this book. It was just that adorable.  Another Saturday Night made me laugh and the characters quickly became my friends.  And I’m happy to say that when I finished that last page, I was left smiling and grabbed the next book in The Page Turners Series!

Her life was safe and quiet. Had it only been a couple of days since she had wished for more excitement? She feared she was about to get her wish.

Stepping into the first scene of this book, I knew I was going to love it.  Sunny was talking to her eighty year old neighbor, Edna, on the phone. You see, one of Sunny and Edna’s neighbor, Walter, was MIA.  But Edna swears she saw a hot, gun toting stranger going into Walter’s house last night.  What transpired from there was oh so funny.  Especially how Sunny ended up meeting said hot, gun toting stranger.  His name was Jake Landon and he definitely had a ton of secrets.  Yet Sunny couldn’t deny that there was an attraction between them, right from the start.

Finding Mr. Right? I didn’t even know if I was looking for Mr. Maybe.

Not only were Sunny and Edna neighbors and friends, but they both belonged to a weekly book club.  Rounding out the club was Maggie, a mom of two boys, whose husband left her a year and a half ago. Cassie, who was happily married with two kiddos.  And Piper, who was Cassie’s high school niece who had come to live with her. I quickly warmed up to each of these women and found myself invested in their lives too.  They not only discussed the books they were reading, but also their lives. And in their latest book meeting, they all decided to help Sunny out with her lack of love life.  They were going to set her up on a date a week, for the next six weeks.

The last few weeks, she had been throwing caution to the wind and dating strange men, hoping to add excitement and find that right guy. But what if the right guy was next door and had just invited her to dinner?

Sunny’s dates were hilarious!  I was laughing so hard, but at the same time I was dying for her awkward situations.  And I found humor in so many other places in this book too.  Even with Sunny’s dog, Beau. Oh my gosh, I adored Beau!! He was hilarious, loyal and added so much joy to this story.  I also loved how Beau interacted with Jake, sigh. I truly think that Beau is my favorite dog in a story. Ever. So while Sunny found herself going out on these blind dates, and coming back to just her dog, Jake was still there.  Just next door. They couldn’t help but run into each other. And slowly a friendship started to form, yet there was also that attraction between the two of them.  But there were still so many questions surrounding Jake. Who was Jake? And where was Walter? Did Jake kill him?  And as if that wasn’t enough, another mystery appeared on the pages.

“Hey, Sunny,” he called from the doorway.
She stopped and looked back. His lean body was silhouetted against the light coming from the house, and it took all she had to not run back and throw herself into his arms. “Yeah?” 
can trust me,” he said softly, looking into her eyes. Then he stepped back into the house and closed the door behind him.
Maybe, but right now, she didn’t think she could trust herself.

I’m proud to say that I guessed the majority of the mysteries correctly, yay!  And I’m also proud to say I liked how this story was told. Usually I prefer to stick with one or two characters, so I found myself shocked that I liked floating around between everyone.  Yeah Sunny was the main character, and we spent the majority of the time with her. But we also got to see life through Jake, Maggie, Piper and a few of the other characters too. I was more than invested in all of their lives.  This book was super adorable, light even though it touched on some heavier topics (trigger warning for attempted rape), had a sweet romance, intriguing mysteries and was such a quick read.  I’m definitely looking forward to the next book and catching up with this crazy gang again!

Monthly Wrap-Up – March


During our Monthly Wrap-Up, we’ll take a look at what has happened around here in the last month. That’ll include what’s happened in my life, what the three of us have read, any other posts we may have had, giveaways still going on, our most popular Instagram posts, books that I’ve added to my ever-growing TBR and updates on my Reading Challenges.

♥ Enjoy!

Jen’s Life:

Some of my highlights from February were –

We got slammed by two different snowstorms….one was 5 feet and the other was 6 feet, which meant that the boys didn’t have school, yay!  Our roads are always fine with 4×4 or AWD, so we went and picked up my mom.  Then we spent the day playing in the snow, sledding and going to our favorite ice cream sandwich shop.  You can see a picture of the boys and I in our winter wonderland HERE.
My youngest turned 5 *sobs hysterically*.  We played baseball, hide and seek and jumped on the trampoline and then repeated everything all over again.  It was such a fun day, but definitely bittersweet that he is already this old.
Me and a group of 16 friends went and watched #IMomSoHard.  It was amazing being surrounded with a few thousand moms in the audience and we laughed so hard we had tears pouring down our face.  If you are a fellow mommy and haven’t seen their videos on their facebook page, I can’t recommend it enough.  They are beyond hilarious and we can’t wait for them to go on tour again to go to another show!

Our Favorite Books of the Month:

Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber (Arielle’s Choice)
THIS WAS SO GOOD. I spent a good four hours this morning finishing this book, completely ignoring everything else around me an I can’t say that I regret it. I mean seriously, the only part of this book that I didn’t like was when it ended…



The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata (Chelsea’s Choice)
This book owned my heart. This book touched my soul. This book possessed me so wholly that I walked around everywhere with a smile on my face and a skip in my step-literally-just because I was so excited I got to read more of it.



The Prophecy (Titan #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Jen’s Choice)
The Prophecy was a stunning conclusion to the Titan Series!  It was action packed, emotionally gutting and completely addicting!  This is going down as one of my favorite series ever!

Our Most Anticipated Releases For April

I’M BACK!  My computer died a week ago…first my hard drive started to fail and once we thought we had that fixed, my motherboard crashed.  I now have a new laptop and all of my files were able to get transferred over, yay!  I’m so thankful for my brother and his computer skills!  I know I have lots of catching up to do around the blogosphere and here on our blog.  But I thought I’d start off with Our Most Anticipated Releases for this month!  And they are….


Releases 4/05 – The Unbelievable, Inconceivable, Unforeseeable Truth About Ethan Wilder by Cookie O’Gorman


In the south, everyone has a secret–and murder is served with sweet tea.

The word’s out: Ethan Wilder’s coming back to town, and the people of Bowie, Georgia are in a southern tizzy. Everyone knows the story. He shot and killed his sister four years ago, and people say his father, Jim Wilder, the biggest holy roller this side of the Mississippi, sent him packing for just that reason. Even if her death was unofficially ruled a suicide, Ethan’s return has everybody talking.

Seventeen-year-old Delilah Doherty can’t go anywhere without hearing his name. Born and raised in Bowie, Delilah knows firsthand about the gossipmongers and how they love a good scandal. The daughter of a wild child and niece of the local psychic, she’s also the only one who doubts Ethan’s guilt.

After Ethan saves her life, the two start a slow and steady burn neither can deny. But when Bowie’s spiritual leader is nearly murdered, it rocks the small southern town to its core. Delilah and Ethan are caught in the crossfire, their relationship threatened before it’s even begun. Someone has it out for Ethan’s family. With everyone convinced of Ethan’s guilt, it’s up to Delilah to unravel the mystery before someone else gets hurt or worse…dead.




Releases 4/09 – Rebel Heir (The Rush Series #1) by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.


Releases 4/10 – The Fates Divide (Carve the Mark #2) by Veronica Roth


In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally bestselling Divergent author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. The Fates Divide is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives.

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.

Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.

As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.



Releases 4/24 – Ash Princess (Ash Princess Trilogy #1) by Laura Sebastian


Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. On that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia’s family, her land, and her name. Theo was crowned Ash Princess–a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisoner.

For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own palace. She’s endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by burying the girl she was deep inside.

Then, one night, the Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword. And power isn’t always won on the battlefield.

For ten years, the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved. That all ends here.


Releases 4/24 – Inferno (Talon #5) by Julie Kagawa


The final book in the series!


Ember Hill has learned a shocking truth about herself: she is the blood of the Elder Wyrm, the ancient dragon who leads Talon and who is on the verge of world domination. With the Order of St. George destroyed, Ember, Riley and Garret journey to the Amazon jungle in search of one who might hold the key to take down the Elder Wyrm and Talon. If they can survive the encounter.

Meanwhile, Ember’s brother, Dante, will travel to China with a message for the last Eastern dragons: join Talon or die. With the stakes rising and the Elder Wyrm declaring war, time is running out for the rogues and any dragon not allied with Talon.

The final battle approaches. And if Talon is victorious, the world will burn.


Releases 4/24 – Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young



Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.


So these are the books we can’t wait to be released this month! Are you excited about any of these releases too? Or is there a book we missed that we should definitely check out? Let us know. ♥
