Having been a lover of reading from a time of when when i was very young, I have found that my taste in books is changing, maturing if I may say. I love super adult, contemporary, sexy, romance type of books no. And I was sitting by my window just thinking and day dreaming ( as usual 🙂 ) about who my favourite book boyfriends are from the books that I have read maybe in the past year! and so here is a small list of those hunks. 🙂
1. Christian Grey- Fifty Shades Of Grey
2. Gideon Cross- Crossfire trilogy
3. Adrian Mitchell- A touch of Crimson
4. Elijah Reynolds- A Hunger So Wild
5. Gabriel Emerson- Gabriel’s Inferno
6. Travis Maddox- Beautiful Disaster
7.Bennett Ryan- Beautiful Bastard
8. Kellan Kyle- Thoughtless
9. Will Cooper- Slammed
10. Professor Dean West- Arouse
11. Simon Parker- Wallbanger
Do share with me, who are your favorite Book Boyfriends? 🙂
AUTHOR: Dan Wells
In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies.
But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon—the terrifying persona he calls “Mr. Monster”—might now be using him.
No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.
Mr. Monster is a one-sitting read so gripping and unsettling that you might want to start over again at page one when you’re finished. Wells’s voice is so crisp and engaging that it feels like John is whispering in your ear—which is a bit shiver-inducing at times. I give it a solid A+ for working out the minor narrative kinks from the first book and, instead of keeping it lighter fair, delving down into the most sinister and dark places of the human psyche. Wells goes there. He’s not afraid to take his readers down the logical path that he’s set up, even though it’s not a conventional sort of story.
In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares
The book for today is called “Runaway”
Author: Wendelin Van Draanen
“It’s a cold, hard, cruel fact that my mother loved heroin more than she loved me.” Holly is in her fifth foster home in two years and she’s had enough. She’s run away before and always been caught quickly. But she’s older and wiser now–she’s twelve–and this time she gets away clean. Through tough and tender and angry and funny journal entries, Holly spills out her story of what she goes through witnessing things she never seen before. We travel with her across the country–hopping trains, scamming food, sleeping in parks or homeless encampments. And we also travel with her across the gaping holes in her heart–as she finally comes to terms with her mother’s addiction and death. Runaway is a remarkably uplifting portrait of a girl still young and stubborn and naive enough to hold out hope for finding a better place in the world, and within herself, to be .
Like “Scarred” this is just one of those books that will pull at your heart, the story line( being that it is a true story) is extremely sad and disturbing, it is very well written, when i read it i experienced the feelings of loneliness,sadness, all the struggles that the main character goes through. It is definitely a steal, and it would be a shame to not read it. 🙂
The book that i will be reviewing today is called “Scarred”.
Author: Sophie Andrews
Growing up, Sophie carried a terrible secret. She was her father’s slave, in the most horrific ways imaginable. At just a few months old she was adopted by a couple that seemed comfortably off and perfectly respectable to the outside world. But behind closed doors, Sophie’s childhood was a living hell. Her father spent the next decade grooming her for abuse and when Sophie’s mother left for good, that very night, he told Sophie that from now on she would sleep in his bed. Unable to cope, Sophie spiraled into suicidal misery. She began to self-harm to try and escape the agony. But one day she went too far and at 16, ended up in a psychiatric unit. It was here that she finally confronted the horrors of home and began the painful journey of rebuilding her life. A phenomenally courageous woman, Sophie now works for the Samaritans and helps other young people in need. Harrowing yet compelling, this is a searing and truly inspirational account of overcoming the worst abuse and self-harm.
This is a book that will pull at your heart strings from the very first page to the last one, the character development is done exquisitely, the story line has twists and turns that just make you want to cry with every page you turn. The author has 2 more books that i shall discuss later, but this one is by no doubt the most horrifying and heartbreaking one.
I strongly suggest for all to read this book, even though it will have you in tears most of the times, the ending is perfect and worth every page. Truly a page turner.
