WWW 10/9/19

Hi everyone! Can you believe that it has been almost a whole month since my last WWW? I just read over it so I pull up the questions for it, and so much has happened like I’ve learned how to give shots, do a physical assessment, and a bunch of other things! Also, it’s been about a month since that guy from school found out that I was talking about him here on my blog! Oh how time has been flying by!

How’s you week going? For me, I’m convinced that today and yesterday is Monday. Idk why, but my week has been thrown off and feels like it’s never going to end! On Monday, I had a pharmacology test, and yesterday I had a med calc. test. Let me tell you, when I was taking that med calc test, I thought I was going to fall asleep because the room was warm and quiet and my eye would close for about 3-4 seconds. Then today in lab, we were learning about NG and PEG tubes and how to set up the NG tube and administer medicines. AND, I have pharm homework due on Friday and a fundamentals test one Monday (and my med validations). Y’all I’m honest so tired right now.

Anyway, I came home today and was trying to think of something to post for today, and I was thinking, “man, I wish it was Wednesday, so I could post my WWW from last week that I didn’t.” Then I had that lightbulb moment when it hit me that it was Wednesday!!! So here I am now, revising this post!

The QB Bad Boy and Me by Tay Marley

Reluctant cheerleader Dallas Bryan has a problem on her hands—and his name is Drayton Lahey.

Ever since the hot star quarterback of the high school football team hit her car with his motorcycle, he has the annoying ability to get under her skin, making Dallas think about Drayton way more than she should . . . in all the ways that she shouldn’t.

But Dallas has one goal—to pursue her dance-school dreams in in California—and no one, not even a hard-bodied, green-eyed football god, will stop her. As the tension between Drayton and Dallas grows thicker, the lines are getting blurred, and all she wants is to come undone under his touch.

But this thing between Dallas and Drayton could cost her her dreams . . . if he doesn’t break her heart first.”

I honestly don’t know how I feel about this book so far. I’m only 40ish pages into it, but its kind of giving me After vibes, and IDK how I’m going to rate it if I decide to write a review on it. I was talking to my sister about the book because she’s read the wattpad version, and she had the nerve to compare Drayton to Conrad from The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy by Jenny Han. I was like what the heck Grace, those two characters don’t even belong in the same sentence! Hopefully, I’m underestimating Drayton, and he’s not as bad as Dallas thinks.

Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things by Jacqueline Firkins

In this charming debut about first love and second chances, a young girl gets caught between the boy next door and a playboy. Perfect for fans of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Mansfield, Massachusetts is the last place seventeen-year-old Edie Price wants to spend her final summer before college. It’s the home of wealthy suburbanites and prima donnas like Edie’s cousins, who are determined to distract her from her mother’s death with cute boys and Cinderella-style makeovers. Edie has her own plans, and they don’t include a prince charming.

But as Edie dives into schoolwork and applying for college scholarships, she finds herself drawn to two Mansfield boys who start vying for her attention. First there’s Sebastian, Edie’s childhood friend and first love. He’s sweet and smart and . . . already has a girlfriend. Then there’s Henry, the local bad boy and all-around player. He’s totally off limits, even if his kisses are chemically addictive.

Both boys are trouble. Edie can’t help but get caught between them. Someone’s heart is going to break. Now she just has to make sure it isn’t hers.”

Have I actually started this book yet! Nope, but I need to so I can review it and post my review on NetGalley.

RTC for Syrian Brides and A Pack of Blood and Lies

Syrian Brides by Anna Halabi

“This delightful collection of short stories offers insight into the lives of Syrian women, both the married and the brides-to-be. It reveals the warmth and humor as well as the oppression in the Syrian society. The stories make the reader laugh while addressing serious issues such as domestic violence. Um Hussam can’t find a suitable bride for her son, testing each candidate’s sight, hearing and reading skills, occasionally cobbing a feel. Jamila’s husband Hassan can’t forget his deceased wife, until she makes sure he never mentions her again. Rami can’t help but wonder whether his new bride is a natural beauty or a talented surgeon’s masterpiece. Khadija’s maid stabs her in the back while Rana’s husband Muafak can’t find the right excuse to avoid a fight.”

A Pack of Blood and Lies by Olivia Wildenstein

“Three months shy of her eighteenth birthday, Ness is forced to return to Colorado. Even though it’s been six years, and the wolves of her all-male pack don’t recognize her, she recognizes them. People who shun others because of their gender are hard to forget.

Especially Liam Kolane–son of Heath, the crudest and cruelest Alpha to have ruled the Boulder Pack. Liam is as handsome as he is infuriating, as kind as he is punishing, and he makes Ness’s traitorous heart race, which isn’t good. After all, he’s a Kolane. Like father like son, right?

When Heath dies, Liam vies to become the new Alpha and no one dares challenge him.

Except Ness.

Thus begins a treacherous game.

The rules: winner takes all…including loser’s life.”

The Geography of Lost Things by Jessica Brody

A lot can happen on the road from lost to found…

Ali Collins doesn’t have room in her life for clutter or complications. So when her estranged father passes away and leaves her his only prized possession—a 1968 Firebird convertible—Ali knows she won’t keep it. Not when it reminds her too much of all her father’s unfulfilled promises. And especially not when a buyer three hundred miles up the Pacific coast is offering enough money for the car to save her childhood home from foreclosure. There’s only one problem, though. Ali has no idea how to drive a stick shift.

But her ex-boyfriend, Nico, does.

The road trip gets off to a horrible start, filled with unexpected detours, roadblocks, and all the uncomfortable tension that comes with being trapped in a car with your ex. But when Nico starts collecting items from the quirky strangers they meet along the way, Ali starts to sense that these objects aren’t random. Somehow they seem to be leading her to an unknown truth about her father. A truth that will finally prove to Ali that some things—even broken things—are worth saving.”

Up Next:

I don’t know. I’m taking life day by day if I’m being honest because there’s so much going on with school.

Happy reading until next time,
