This was really a surprisingly refreshing read. I definitely related to the main character, Laura. You should request it via NetGalley.
- Life in the Palace by Catherine Green
I still have mixed feelings about the book. The ‘People’ seemed so cult-like, and the story was Twilighty.

Weekend Reading #027
Sporadic Reads hosts a weekly meme called “Weekend Readings“. Join us!
This book will be out this month, so I’ve decided to go ahead and read this from NetGalley to strike it off my list. What are you reading this weekend?The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel
Series: Stand Alone
Published by Harlequin
Published on April 29th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, Realistic FIction, Romance, Young Adult
Some sixteen-year-olds babysit for extra cash. Some work at the Gap. Becca Williamson breaks up couples.
After watching her sister get left at the altar, Becca knows the true damage that comes when people utter the dreaded L-word. For just $100 via paypal, she can trick and manipulate any couple into smithereens. With relationship zombies overrunning her school, and treating single girls like second class citizens, business is unfortunately booming. Even her best friend Val has resorted to outright lies to snag a boyfriend.
One night, she receives a mysterious offer to break up the homecoming king and queen, the one zombie couple to rule them all: Steve and Huxley. They are a JFK and Jackie O in training, masters of sweeping faux-mantic gestures, but if Becca can split them up, then school will be safe again for singletons. To succeed, she'll have to plan her most elaborate scheme to date and wiggle her way back into her former BFF Huxley’s life – not to mention start a few rumors, sabotage some cell phones, break into a car, and fend off the inappropriate feelings she’s having about Val’s new boyfriend. All while avoiding a past victim out to expose her true identity.
No one said being the Break-Up Artist was easy.
Stacking The Shelves #023
Book Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It may be physical or virtual copies of books.
In preparation for the book signing tour of Rossi – Riggs – Mafi this month, I’ve been buying their books for them to sign. So this week, I got the first two books of the Under The Never Sky series. The bookstore didn’t have Into The Still Blue yet, so I’d have to check another branch.
And the eBooks just grows and grows!
