Forever by Gillian Joy







Blurb from Goodreads:

Book two in the Guardian series.
Hannah’s life has never been easy, despite her strong willed determination and her extra “gifts”, it's still always been hard work keeping an entire world full of the supernatural under control, but having achieved a small semblance of control over most of the custas, Hannah was hoping to be able to slip back into her life of normalcy. Wishful thinking when you're the guardian of all supernatural.
With all the issues she’d had to endure in her past, she'd never had to worry about the mermaids before, so why would they choose now to suddenly start haunting her dreams and her life. Then there are the fairies to contend with as well, just when she manages to get one aspect of the crudelitas under control, the others decide it’s time to start causing problems.
All Hannah wants is some quiet family time and a chance to reflect on her feelings for Gabriel but instead she's thrown back into the thick of the supernatural world, and this time it threatens to invade the quiet family life she has worked so hard to establish. There's no running away this time, she has to front the challenges head on, but forever can be a long time if you can't be with the one you love.




My Thoughts:

Oh my gosh, this book had me up until the early morning hours. It was amazing! I had to grab a box of tissues with this one. If you want an amazing read with everything supernatural then this sereis is definitely for you. Vampires, Mermaids, Fairies, Witches, werewolves, it's all in there.

This book picks up where Guardian left off. Hannah is torn apart about her feelings for Gabriel. What is it that needs to be done, should she just walk away and end their friendship? Then there is her duty to the crudelitas, the fairies pester her for help and the mermaids pester her for a swim.

I was so happy with the turn of events in this book and cannot wait to read the next book!

The Beauty Queen and the School Nerd by Vanessa Rose Lee






Blurb from Goodreads:



Did you ever wonder what would happen if a beauty queen and a school nerd had something in common? No one would have ever guessed that seniors Jessica Richardson and Amanda Shaw could ever have anything in common. The two girls attend the ultra-exclusive Porter Academy in Atlanta. Jessica is a beauty queen with a glamorous life and tons of money, clothes, and make-up. Amanda comes from a lower class home and is the "school nerd" at Porter. Well, we're about to find out what happens when the two girls meet and their secret past is revealed to the world.



My Thoughts:


I thoroughly enjoyed this YA novel. The beginning was a slow start for me but this quickly turned around and held my attention very well. This is a good clean, fun read. There is no language, a big bonus for me, and no inappropriate scenes. I thought Vanessa did a great job and I would recommend it!

Jessica is a popular senior that all the kids look up to and adore. Amanda is considered a nerd and is rejected by the entire school. Those two opposites soon learn that they are more alike than either of them wish.

This story has great values written in that I think are important to everyone of every age.

Guardian by Gillian Joy







Blurb from Goodreads:

Headstrong and determined, Hannah always knew that she would become the Guardian. She was the keeper and the protector of all supernatural. What she didn't expect was that it would mean she would have to endure the agonising death of her mother first hand as their supernatural connection brings her to her knees, or that it would mean that she could never be with the man she loved.
Blond haired, blue eyed Gabriel was her handsome childhood friend, but would circumstances prevent her from ever being able to explore her true feelings for him?
Jesse, the dark alluring but incorrigible vampire would give anything to be with her, but as the guardian Hannah is forbidden to fall in love with the supernatural.
With her life in turmoil over her conflicting emotions about Gabriel and Jesse and her frustration at being unable to exact revenge for her mother’s horrific death, Hannah flees her life in an attempt to start over. But can we ever really escape from ourselves?
There is no escaping destiny no matter how hard she might try and Hannah must learn to reconcile her commitment to her family with her responsibility as the Guardian and her duty to her heart.



My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved Guardian! Gillian Joy has a wonderful way with words. I definitely recommend this book to others! It's a story that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go!

Guardian is a story about Hannah who is the guardian over all your paranormal creatures, vampires, werewolves, witches, nephilum, you name it Guardian has it. After her mother's death she set out on a search for the vampire responsible for having her mother killed. Along the way she gained the reputation of being a vampire hater/killer, something that changed after she is reunited with her childhood best friend. Together they set out to draw her mother's murderer out.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series! Definitely one of the best I have read this year.

Beach Party Girls by Vanessa Rose Lee





Blurb from Goodreads:

Welcome to Miami. The city lights up at night and parties are endless. Meet the Beach Party Girls. Kim Bailey and Stephanie Cole enjoy living a fast-paced, glamorous lifestyle. One day, an event changes their lives. What will they do to get by? Join the fun-loving Beach Party Girls and their adventures.


My Thoughts:

Kim and Stephanie have it easy. They do not work and they live off of daddy's income. When they learn that daddy can no longer take care of their bills, they are forced to find jobs and take care of themselves.

I thought that Vanessa Lee came up with a great story. The characters talk and act like real people, their life is one a person can relate to in some form. The only thing that I thought was missing was some detail. There were a few, very few, typos. Overall I enjoyed this book, it's fun and clean (no language or inappropirate behaviors).
