Author: Michelle Madow

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Synopsis: (via: Goodread)

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: the world’s most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.

Instead, it turns out to be her last.

Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

My Review:

Okay, so, the synopsis of this book was VERY interesting. But reading it, was kind of boring. I mean, it started off reaalllyy good. But then, after she keeps repeating the day of her death, it kinda made me feel like im reading the SAME thing over and over. BUT things start to change after her fourth or fifth day. Which is funny, because she does some crazy things that make me laugh my butt off. hahah.

Anyways, in the beginning of the book, Sam and her friends were PISSING OFFF! They were those type of girls who would just party party party, make fun and bully other people, and just dont give a damn about anything but themselves. That pissed me off and i didnt really like them that  much. But Sam changed and i loved her in the end.

The author always shows that they are really close friends, but since they ARE, i dont know why they arent honest with eachother. For example, Lindsey can be VERY bossy. And if one of the girls do something she doesnt like, she makes fun of it and even spreads it all over the school. I mean cmoon, if you think horse riding isnt cool, but your friend likes it, deal with it.

Now the boys, Rob was okay. But i sometimes felt he was too much of a show off. And sometimes he can get really naggy too. Since im an artist, i LOVED Kent. I fall in love with any boy who draws. (haha) But really i think its soo cute when he drew Sam that cute cartoon with her rose. ADORABLE.

Okay in the end, it was a good book. True, it would be annoying sometimes, but it made me laugh and was  funny too. Honestly, in the end, im not even sure if she DID die or not. So someone please help me and comment below telling me if she died. Thanks!

Happy Reading ❤


Review: “One Night That Changes Everything” by Lauren Barnholdt

  Title: One Night That Changes Everything

  Author: Lauren Barnholdt

  My rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis:  Eliza is in a full-blown panic. Her notebook has been stolen—the one that lists everything      she wants but is afraid to go after. And the absolute worst person in the world has it: her ex-boyfriend,  Cooper.

Like it’s not enough Cooper was lying to Eliza for their entire relationship, now he and his friends are  blackmailing her. They’re giving her just one night to complete the most humiliating tasks on her list or  they’ll post her secrets online—including the ones that aren’t just about her.
Eliza’s sure of only one thing: she isn’t going down without a fight. Cooper may have what’s left of her  dignity, but she’s not the only one with something to hide …


My Review:

This is a really… amazing book. It was one of those books that when i started, i just couldn’t put it down. After reading the synopsis, i wasnt that eager about starting it. My sister read it, and yea she told me to read it because it was nice. One day i was bored, i decided to start it. What i like about the author of this book, Lauren Barnholdt, is that she catches the reader’s attention from the start. The reason why i just couldnt put this book down was because at the beginning of the book, she added some suspense to it, so that really made me eager to continue reading. I also wanted to figure out what that “big” thing Eliza did that has been going around the school, and what that purple notebook was, and what had the secret society planned on doing with it. The idea of the book, and that purple notebook that Eliza carry’s, is unbelievably amazing. I really loved the idea, and i really thought it was beyond funny and creative. There was also some romance in it, which i like. It was regarding her ex-boyfriend Cooper who ployed her into becoming his girl-friend to get into a secret society in the school. I dont want to say more since i dont want this to be some kind of spoiler. Anyways, to sum this all up, i enjoyed it to the max. It was funny, cute, and fun to read. I really recommend this book because you will surely enjoy it.
