Title: Dating-ish
Series: Knitting in the City #6
Author: Penny Reid

There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 
1) She’s fed up with online dating, 
2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 
3) She knows how to knit.

After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of human kind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?
But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different—and crazier—solution to her dilemma . . .
As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?


Marie thought she met her "perfect" match through a dating website, but that is not at all what happens. She ends up meeting a professor who is friends with her friends, and learns she was part of an experiment. Things go from bad to worse for her when it comes to dating, and she can't seem to stand this Matt guy. 

However, the more she runs into him and when she decides she wants his research for work, things get complicated. They form a hilariously beautiful friendship, but Marie starts falling in love, and she knows Matt doesn't want a committed relationship. 

This book was really good! It made me laugh a lot, and I really loved the plot and characters. It just had a perfect mix of drama, romance, and hilarious situations that I adored. This was a great addition to this series, and I look forward to more!

Title: Foreseen
Series: The Suoja Guild #2
Author: A.J. Anders

Forced to attend the Surmata run Suoja Guild, Evie finally has hope for a better life. But her new freedom comes at a cost. Dark forces work against her, even within the safe walls of the demon hunter’s school. With her father still on the loose, Evie must be extra diligent to watch her back. 

When her friend Maximillian introduces her to his housemates, she can’t fight the sense of déjà vu she feels whenever she’s near them. Humans and Suramata can’t be together, so why does it feel so right to be with them?


Evie is taken to the Suoja Guild, she thinks that life will get better, but she isn't really correct. She starts learning more things about her best friend. And she has her father's people hating her, and wanting to make her life miserable, plus she doesn't understand her new ability, and why she feels a pull towards these five Suramata. 

This book was interesting, and I really liked it, but I was beyond frustrated with the way it kept skipping things that seemed very important. Like stuff that happened to Evie that she just brushed off, and the guys who are suppose to care about her don't seem to notice what's really going on. That doesn't make sense at all because they are suppose to be watching over her. 

More stuff liked that happened throughout the book and it made it difficult to deal with. But other than that I really liked the book, and I can't wait to find out more now, especially after that ending.

Title: When To Fear The Living
Series: The Veil Diaries #3
Author: B.L. Brunnemer

Please be advised: Possible Trigger Warning 

Hi, I’m Alexis Delaney. I’m your average 17-year-old girl. Except I can see the dead. And talk to the dead and help them move on. So..okay, I’m not your average 17-year-old girl. Right now, the Veil is shut off, and the Way is closed. Which means the dead can’t move on, so, they are camping out on my lawn. I’m trying to open the Way, juggle school and, well, deal with my feelings for two of my best friends. 
If that isn’t enough, notes have been showing up in my locker since I got back from Christmas vacation. Things are getting creepier as time goes on. He’s actually starting to scare me, to be honest. But with the guys, I’ll be fine. They’ve got my back. No one is crazy enough to take on Zeke. Right? 


Lexie is getting frustrated with her ex-boyfriend, and this stalker guy who can't show is face, or leave her alone. As things start to get a little crazy the guys start to step in to help her. And while she is dealing with this, she still has to try to fix the Veil, get help from a witch she doesn't trust anymore, and some more crazy stuff as well. But Lexie doesn't give up and she will do what ever it takes to make things right. 

This book was awesome! I loved it. I really loved how Lexie was dealing with everything, and I loved how she was with her guys as usual. I only hope that she doesn't start dating one and exclude the others. I hope she ends up with all of them around the same time. 

I was also proud of how she handled the stalker issue as well. She was so brave, and I can't wait to read the next book. It's going to be utterly amazing. And I totally adored getting to read a few of the guy's point of views, and I really can't wait till all of their feelings start to come out!

Title: 180 Seconds
Author: Jessica Park

Some people live their entire lives without changing their perspective. For Allison Dennis, all it takes is 180 seconds…

After a life spent bouncing from one foster home to the next, Allison is determined to keep others at arm’s length. Adopted at sixteen, she knows better than to believe in the permanence of anything. But as she begins her third year in college, she finds it increasingly difficult to disappear into the white noise pouring from her earbuds.

One unsuspecting afternoon, Allison is roped into a social experiment just off campus. Suddenly, she finds herself in front of a crowd, forced to interact with a complete stranger for 180 seconds. Neither she, nor Esben Baylor, the dreamy social media star seated opposite her, is prepared for the outcome.

When time is called, the intensity of the experience overwhelms Allison and Esben in a way that unnerves and electrifies them both. With a push from her oldest friend, Allison embarks on a journey to find out if what she and Esben shared is the real thing—and if she can finally trust in herself, in others, and in love.


Allison has been pushing most people away for most of her life. Growing up in foster care taught her a few things, and one of those things was that everyone leaves and nobody wants her. But when she gets adopted at sixteen and goes off to college things start to change for her. 

Her best friend and her adopted father want her to open herself up to people, but she's having a hard time doing that. That is until she meets Esben. He's an internet sensation and she doesn't know a thing about it. But someone how in a twist of fate, she ends up being included in an experiment for him. Now, she's trying to run from what fate seems to have in store for her and Esben. 

This book took my breath away! It was utterly brilliant, filled with so much emotion and I adored it!  180 Seconds was beautiful, sad, and a whole lot more. I loved this book! It is the best I've read all year, and I can't wait to read it again!
