(Movies): I'm In Love. #1

And his name is Mr SuperHero Man.

So I watched the Avengers, and really liked it. Maybe even loved. Then I wiki-ed it, because that's a thing I do, and found out its sort of a sequel movie to the others- Iron Man, Thor etc! I was totally excited. People, yes, I was living under a rock. I didn't know. 
Anyway so then I had to go and watch them all, because have you SEEN Thor? Hes a hunk. And Iron Man? Funny, witty, sexy AND SO SUPER INTELLIGENT. Captain A's a sweet heart. And I love Mark Ruffalo.
So far, I've only managed to see both the Iron Man movies, so maybe next week I'll be in love with Thor.

The only superhero movie I really saw and followed up with was Spider Man, because A) The first movie was awesome, and B) I read a Spiderman novel, where the thoughts and actions of Peter Parker were so swoon-worthy heroic/nice/adorable/badass, that I obviously fell in love. Plus the story was pretty cool as well.
And come on, Andrew Garfield? He is the epitome of hot guy. Tobey was cute too.

So: Iron Man 1 & 2 get 4/5 stars
The Avengers gets 3.95/5 stars

(Book Review): Easy by Tammara Webber

by Tammara Webber

A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Then one night, a horrible thing happens and Jacqueline's life is changed forever.
Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Wow. This book. This book left me all gooey and smiley inside and out. It's one of THOSE books you guys.
PLUS it has a MESSAGE. And oh my God... Lucas! *fans self*

The story is about Jacqueline and that horrible thing that happens to her one night. Its about how hot and sexy and awesome Lucas is, and it is a must read for lovers of contemporary romance, and people who want to read outside young adult, but not inside Adult: New Adult!

Jacqueline was a good, strong heroine. Even with what happened to her, she was never over the top whiny, or damsel in distress-y. Tammara Webber wrote her in a perfectly balanced way.The writing of the novel itself was good too, and mature, but still relatable. It was simplistic, but not juveniley so. 
The pace of the book was well balanced as well, being not too fast, nor too slow.
I loved reading Easy, it was like savoring a special box of rich chocolates. And Oh my God the tension and the sexy times? They were so well done, -the icing on top!
Several times I was close to tears- the feelings surrounding the assault bit were written very well and made you really feel for Jacqueline. Even with a topic like assault, something which has been done quite a lot,  none of the book felt cliched at all. Reading about college life was also refreshing and I've realized, I really like the New Adult genre.
Aside from Jacqueline, Lucas was also a very interesting character. His story was as intriguing as hers and I liked reading about his layers as well.

All in all, the book was EASY. It was good and delicious. Reading it was fun and emotional and the love story was beautiful as well as believable!

Loved it.
