Mini Reviews (VI)

Mini Reviews of a few great books I have read recently!

Going Too Far - Jennifer Echols
When bad girl Meg is arrested for walking on a railroad bridge, the cop who arrested her, John, decides to punish her. Instead of going on vacation with her friends during spring break, Meg has to ride nights with John in his police car. Meg and John are so much unlike - Meg can't wait to move away from her home town, while John is determined to stay and protect and serve in the same city his whole life, - but at the same time very much alike. They're both have a valid reason for their choices, and they both keep secrets from each other. While Meg and John spend time together they're provoking each other and are constantly questioning the other person's choices. And at the same time they're getting to know each other very well... This book was really good, and if you haven't read it yet, I suggest you do so immediantly - you're going to love it! :)

Rating: 5++ of 5

The Alpha Bet - Stephanie Hale
When 16-year old Grace Kelly is starting college, she sees it as a chance to improve herself. All her life she's been following her mums will; she's been an excellent student with no social life. But when she gets the chance to be a member of the Alphas, the most exclusive sorority on campus, GK is determined to make the cut. But - as Grace Kelly soon is about to find out - the road from Geek to Greek is full of obstacles and lies. Can Grace Kelly reach her goal, without hurting the people she cares about? And, is Grace Kelly really turning into a better person?

The Alpha Bet was a great book! It was fun, had great characters, and I loved the idea of the Alpha Bet tasks. This book was filled with drama, laughter, pranks, great friendship and . . .lies.
Grace Kelly was a person I could identify myself with, and she was a great, realistic character. Read it!

What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know - Sonya Sones
What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know was far from what I had expected. It was written in short poem style, for one. I've never been a big fan of books written in poems, but this book was unexpectedly easy to read! The pages flew by, and I finished it in just a couple of hours. The story was good, realistic and funny. We follow the ups and downs in Robin and Sophie's relationship, as well as Robin's personal development. If I understood it correctly, this is the sequel to What My Boyfriend Doesn't Know.
