Linking up with Sheila
This weekend was a very good weekend for reading. The weather was nice and I got a chance to relax and read. I finally got to dive into my summer TBR list. Better late than never.
Here is what I’m currently reading!
For my eyes:
When Amber Portwood debuted on MTV s hit reality series 16 & Pregnant, no one could have predicted that the teenager from Anderson, Indiana with the dry sense of humor would go on to become one of the most controversial young celebrities in reality TV history. But soon after Amber stepped into the public eye, her life spiraled into chaos.
From her struggles with anxiety, depression and addiction to her brutal onscreen fights with her boyfriend, Amber seemed a troubled young woman destined to destroy herself. And that was all before she shocked everyone by sending herself to prison for seventeen months!
But behind Amber Portwood s shocking behavior is a story the cameras never captured. It s a story of hardship and hope, of relationships torn apart by tragedy and addiction and put back together with strength, love and determination. After years of losing herself in a daze of sex, drugs and depression, Amber made the decision to stand up and do whatever it took to save her life, her family, and herself.
With her trademark honesty and dry sense of humor, Amber tells the real story of how she learned to deal with the demons that nearly destroyed her. “Never Too Late” sends a powerful message that no matter how far down a person might fall, it s never too late to get back up and change the future. ” (Goodreads)
*I’m a huge Teen Mom fan. When I saw she had written a book, of course I had to rush out and get it.*
For my ears:
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost? (Goodreads)
*I’m not sure if I want to keep listening to the series after this book. I’ve heard some mix reviews*
