Review: Coffeehouse Angel

Book: Angel Coffeehouse
Author: Suzanne Selfors

Summary from Goodreads:
From the author of Saving Juliet comes a romantic comedy that is good to the last drop. When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down.  Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

I really liked this book but I didn't absolutely love it and think that it was the best book in the world. I liked the story plot a lot  but I really wish the author would have expanded upon how they fell in love. It was just like boom now Malcolm and Katrina are in love. That part bothered me but I enjoyed the small town feel and the coffee-shop idea. After reading this book I was craving a nice cup of coffee. If you like love storys, fantasy, and a small town feel then you should definitely check this book out! Happy Reading!

Music Monday!!!

This weeks song is Storm Warning by Hunter Hayes! I just recently discovered this on YouTube and I absolutely fell in love with his country soul and look at him ladies he is gorgeous! Instead of Bieber Fever I think I have been placed in a Hayes Daze! If you like Rascal Flatts you will most likely like his voice and his songs are so cute! Hope you enjoy:)

Movie of the Week

Get ready to pee in your pants with laughter! This movie is the funniest movie I have ever seen! It has Mary Shannon and Will Ferrell in it. I saw it on Friday and couldn't believe any movie could really be that funny but I guess SNL can pull off anything! Want to watch a comedy for date night? Totally rent Superstar!

Review: Sisterhood Everlasting

Novel: Sisterhood Everlasting
Author: Ann Brashares

Summary from Goodreads:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting.

Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.

Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.

As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.

My Review:

When this book came out I was so excited because I absolutely loved the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and I loved the idea of The Septembers ten years later. Even though Tibby, Lena, Bee, and Carmen are older and farther apart Brashares did a very good job of keeping them true to their past mannerisms. Lena  was still quiet, artistic, and hopelessly lonely without Kostos or her friends. Bee was still free and constantly moving, always trying to find the brightest place on the Earth. And of course Carmen was still dramatic and lovely as an aspiring actress in New York. And Tibby, personally my favorite character was the reason that brought the four friends from each corner of their different lives together once again. Each character grew in a way that only Brashares can present through friendship. There were some twists that had me bawling and laughing at the same time. In a way this novel this book showed me the true meaning of friendship and the beauty of people caring about you enough to not let you stray to far away. If you fell in love with the sisters as teenagers, you will love them even more ten years later! Happy Reading!

Every Monday I will put up a song I really like, an upcoming artist, or something really epic in the music world! I hope you enjoy!
This week is the song Every Breath by Boyce Avenue! I discovered this band on Youtube and absolutely fell in love with their voices and their sound! You will like them if you like David Cook or A Rocket to the Moon! I hope you enjoy!

Review: Clockwork Angel

Clockwork Angel (Book 1 in The Infernal Devices)
By: Cassandra Clare

Summary from Goodreads:
Magic is dangerous--but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by--and torn between--two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Cassandra Clare does it again! She dragged me away from my boring mundane life into the world of the exciting Shadowhunters. Except now the time period is in the 1800's which I thought was an interesting spin off  towards the modern Mortal Instruments Series. Everything about this book kept me so intrigued! I loved all of the characters but I think my favorite was Jem. He was kind and he absolutely adored Tessa but he also had his secret of his own that keeps you wondering throughout the whole book trying so desperately to find out what is wrong with him. I don't know if it was just me but Will reminded me a lot of Jace except he had black hair instead of blonde. All in all I was thoroughly impressed and was pretty happy that Magnus Bane was still in the story. If you loved the Mortal Instruments series than you will absolutely adore The Infernal Devices! Happy Reading! Oh, and in the comments let me know how you felt about Will, yay or nay!
