Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.

Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father's fists. One night a fight gets out of hand, and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. Events spiral out of control, and a chance encounter with the wrong people leaves them in a horrific and desperate situation.

Pre-ordered this book because I enjoyed her other books so much but this one definitely didn't compare. Shallow characters and improbable events. Skip this one and check out one of her other books instead.

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. It's all because, some 20 years earlier, the United States lost a war - and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.

Loved the Amazon pilot and thought the idea sounded brilliant, but this was a slog to get through and the narrators voice didn't help, felt like I was going to be put to sleep.

This was a really fun read. The characters were well written and the plot was compelling - went straight from this book into the sequel and am currently itching for the third installment. The narrators are incredibly good and really help make the world feel real.

I just devoured Burn for Burn and Fire with Fire and was especially excited to read this book since Will Smith is developing it into a film but this was incredibly disappointing. The plot felt incredibly uninspired and while I like the authors style she has written the protagonist as though she is 12 and not 16.... Would suggest trying a different Jenny Han book instead.

The kind of series that makes you wonder why you wasted so much time reading it. Each book became stupider and by the end you really can't help but wonder why the author thinks you should care about any of it. Save yourself the agony of this one, I wish I had.

Nineteen-year-old Greg Sestero met Tommy Wiseau at an acting school in San Francisco. Wiseau's scenes were rivetingly wrong, yet Sestero, hypnotized by such uninhibited acting, thought, "I have to do a scene with this guy." That impulse changed both of their lives. The Disaster Artist is Greg Sestero's laugh-out-loud funny account of how Tommy Wiseau defied every law of artistry, business, and friendship to make "the Citizen Kane of bad movies" ( Entertainment Weekly), which is now an international phenomenon.
