Weekly Wrap-up: April 9-15 (KEERT)

Today I have my weekly wrap-up for the week of April 9 to April 15. I finished 3 books this week. One of them was a reread for me. I started reading 3 more so I would say I feel very accomplished. I also got one blog post up. Let’s get into it!

Finished Books:
  • Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson: I gave it 5 stars. It made me want to take a road trip.
  • Can You Get an F in Lunch by Nancy Krulik: This was the book I reread. I gave this 4 stars when I read it for the first time and now it’s still 4 stars.
  • She’s so Dead to Us by Kieran Scott: I gave this book 4 stars. There were a few problems with it but I really liked the book.

Currently Reading:
  • Heartless by Sara Shepard: This is the 7th book in the Pretty Little Liars series. I really love Pretty Little Liars. Both the show and the books. I’m really loving this book so far. I’m 14% into the book.
  • Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven: I’m reading the ebook version of this book. So far I’m only 6% into the book so I don’t know what I think of it yet.
  • The Heir by Kiera Cass: This book is the 4th book in The Selection series. I’m barely into this book but I enjoyed the first 3 so I know I’ll probably enjoy this one too.

Most Anticipated Spring Releases 2017 (KEERT)

Today I’m going to be talking about my most anticipated spring releases for 2017. Let’s get into it!

The Thing about Love by Julie James - April 18
I’ve never read any of Julie James’ books before so this will be the first one. This book is about two FBI agents named Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and Army ranger clashed during their training at Quantico gladly going their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing they expect is to run into each other again – assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting. For both of them, being paired with a former rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work as a team.  It becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic, beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a whole lot more complicated.

I Found You by Lisa Jewell - April 25
This book is a mystery/thriller. The book is about a young bride, a lonely single mother, and an amnesiac man. In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside. Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, Lily Monrose, 21, has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night, she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed. Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable.

Odd Birds by Ian Harding - May 2
This book is written by one of my favorite actors, Ian Harding. Ian Harding is an actor on my favorite show, Pretty Little Liars. Ian explores his life in Hollywood through the lens of his favorite pastime in this collection of personal stories. Odd Birds is a must-read for fans of his hit show, nature enthusiasts, and lovers of celebrity memoirs.  

My Beautiful Struggle by Jordan Bone - May 4
Jordan Bone is one of my favorite YouTubers. She is so inspiring. I really can’t wait for this one to come out.

When Dimple Meets Rishi by Sandhya Menon - May 30
This book is about two Indian teenagers named Dimple and Rishi and their parents arrange their marriage. Dimple has her life all planned out and Rishi is a Romantic. I can’t wait to read this one. I have a feeling I’ll definitely relate to the characters since I’m Indian, too.
Those were my anticipated spring releases for 2017. I hoped you enjoyed reading this!

Love,

Keert

March Wrap-up 2017 (KEERT)

Hi, guys! I'm Keert and I’ll be writing all the posts that have to do with books. Ruby will be no longer doing those posts since she realized she loves fashion and beauty a little bit more than books. However, she and Neena decided they still want to have blog posts going up about books so they decided that I will be doing them from now on. I’ll be posting just as much as Ruby and Neena do. I’ll be reviewing books, doing hauls, etc.

Anyways, today I have my March wrap-up. I didn’t really read that many books this month since I was busy with school and stuff. I was also kind of in a reading slump. I hope April will be a much better month for reading. Also from now on I’ll try to have individual reviews for these books as well. Those reviews will go more in-depth. Let’s get into!

Lost and Found by Anne Schraff:
This book is about a girl named Darcy Wills. Her family is going through some rough times. Her father left them, her grandmother is very sick, and her younger sister is acting out. Later a mysterious stranger starts following her and then someone leaves a threatening note on her desk and then her sister disappears. Honestly, I just couldn’t get into this book. I lost interest near the beginning of the story. To me the story was just boring. I didn’t give it any rating on Goodreads.

Paper Towns by John Green:
I think most people know what this book is about. It’s about a girl named Margo who “runs away’’. She leaves “clues” to where she is for the neighbor Quentin. Quentin follows the clues but learns that Margo wasn’t the girl he thought he knew. This book was really good. At first I couldn’t get into it but when Quentin started finding the clues I started reading more and more. I gave it a 4/5 stars on Goodreads.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith:
This was my first Jennifer E. Smith book that I’ve ever read. This book is about a girl named Hadley Sullivan who is 17. She misses her flight to London for her dad’s second wedding. While she’s waiting for the next flight, she meets Oliver, a British boy who’s sitting in her row. After a long night on the airplane, Hadley and Oliver lose each other in the chaos at the airport after they arrive. Will they be able to find their way back to one another? I gave this book 5/5 stars. It was a romantic and adorable story. I really loved the story.

That’s it, guys! I only read 3 books this month. I’m hoping I’ll have more than 3 books for my April wrap-up. We’ll see!

Love,

Keert

Updated Social Media | Ruby

Hi, guys! Today I have an updated post on all our social media. Our last one is outdated since we either have new accounts/made separate accounts for our blog or got accounts for new social media apps. Also we have new readers now so we needed to make a new one for them. Let’s get into it!

Instagram:
Our Instagram username is beautyguru44 so go follow us if you want to get updates on our lives and updates on the blog.

Twitter:
Our Twitter username is the same as Instagram. This account is where we update you on the blog and tweet random things.

Goodreads:
This account is my friend, Keert’s. She is the only one who runs it. Add her as a friend. She will also be taking over the posts about books. I will no longer be writing those posts. She will. We’ll explain more in the next post going up which will actually be her first post. Goodreads doesn’t allow you to search people, though, so here’s the link: https://goo.gl/3D8xBl

Snapchat:
Our snapchat username is fashion_gurl277 so you can see Snapchats about our lives and more. The account is under mine name since I decided to make mines public.

Facebook:
As of right now, we don’t have a Facebook page for this blog. We have personal Facebook accounts but we don’t have something for this blog. We might make one in the future. We might not.

That’s all the social media we have! I know it’s not a lot but still we spend a ton of time on all of them so for now we’re good on social media. :)

Love,
Ruby

February Book Haul 2017 (RUBY)

Hi, guys! Today I have my monthly book haul for February. I bought a lot of books this month so I’m going to split it up in 2 months. The second part might be up on March 1, but it will definitely be up soon, though. Let’s get into it!  


Paper Towns by John Green:
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving Margo Roth Spiegelman. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life, dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge, he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Quentin arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Quentin soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Quentin sees the girl he thought he knew.


The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider:
Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them, a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life. No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures. But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?


The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson:
Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks). But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing, if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?


Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson:
Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it's Amy's responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn't ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip - and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar - especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory - but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.


The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton:
According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers - until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser.


Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins:
This is the first book in The Sweet series. Embrace the Forbidden. What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels. Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna. Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?


Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige:
This is the first book in the Dorothy Must Die series. I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado - taking you with it - you have no choice but to go along, you know? Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a yellow brick road - but even that's crumbling. What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe. My name is Amy Gumm - and I'm the other girl from Kansas. I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I've been trained to fight. And I have a mission.


That’s it, guys! I hope you enjoyed reading this and part 2 will definitely be up soon!


Love,
Ruby
