Linking up with Sheila
Hello all you wonderful people!
It’s Monday again! No matter how hard we try Monday always seems to come around. This was my first weekend without anything planned. I was super excited! I spent the weekend on the couch, watching football and reading. It was a great weekend! I made a dent on my TBR pile. Overall it was a successful weekend!
Here’s what I’m reading this Monday!
For my eyes:
The A-List by Zoey Dean
Welcome to The A-List, a wickedly funny and risqué paperback original novel that takes readers behind the scenes of the intoxicating world of Hollywood glitterati. Seventeen-year-old Upper East Side blueblood Anna (“pronounced Aaaanah”) Percy is on her way to Beverly Hills, California, where she’ll live with her estranged dad for the rest of the school year while her mother travels to Europe with a friend. On the plane, Anna drinks too much champagne and gets hit on by record producer Rick Resnick. Luckily Princeton student Ben Birnbaum is there to save her and he invites Anna to famous actor Jackson Sharpe’s wedding, where Anna meets the cast of rich and famous characters who are soon to be her classmates at Beverly Hills High. The fast times of Beverly Hill’s most beautiful and glamorous people drive the page-turning action of this juicy new novel.
*I started this book last night. I’m about a chapter in so I can’t really form a good opinion about it yet.*
For my ears:
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created ‘perfect’ life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she’s worked so hard for: her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.
Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.
In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.
*This story reminds me of a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Two completely different worlds that are distained to be together. I’m rooting for everyone to get together. I really hope so.*
