Recent Reads (01)

Recent Reads is a way for me to round up books that I have read recently that are either too small to really give a detailed review of them, or are books read for fun with no review notes taken.

Title: Happy Again
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
Publication Date: 14th April 2015

Tell Me About It
Ellie O'Neill and Graham Larkin fell hard for each other when a misspelled email address unexpectedly brought them together. Now, over a year has passed since they said goodbye with the promise to stay in touch, and their daily emails have dwindled to nothing. Ellie is a freshman in college and has told herself to move on, and Graham has kept himself busy starring in more movies, as well as a few tabloid columns. But fate brought these two together once before--and it isn't done with them yet.

In this sequel novella to This is What Happy Looks Like, Jennifer E. Smith revisits two beloved characters to tell the story of one magical night in Manhattan. When Ellie and Graham come face to face once more, can they get past the months of silence and the hurt feelings to find their happily-ever-after again?
My Thoughts
After the ending in This Is What Happy Looks Like I wanted there to be more, so when Happy Again was announced I stalked amazon UK waiting for it to be added on. I had this one pre-ordered and was looking forward to reading it. Happy Again is a very quick read, and the time frame is just a few hours with Ellie and Graham. I loved getting to see this couple back together again, and after the breakdown of their friendship I was eager to see the flame ignited again.
Happy Again was a nice little addition to Ellie and Graham's story that fans of Jennifer, or the story This Is What Happy Looks Like, need to read.


Title: The Broken Hearts' Society of Suite 17C
Author: Leigh Ann Kopans
Publication Date: 2015

Tell Me About It
Friends don’t let friends make the same horrible relationship mistakes twice.

Rion, Amy, and Arielle, the three occupants of first-year dorm Harrison Tower’s Suite 17C have never met before the first day of school, but they soon discover they have one thing in common – being on the wrong end of an especially awful breakup.

Heartbreak sucks, especially when the girls should have seen the trouble coming from a mile away. But there’s no better time than the beginning of college to take charge of your own love life, and nobody better than a roommate to keep you accountable. Over ice cream and pizza their first week, the girls vow never again to date anyone like the assholes who ripped their hearts out and smeared them across the quad.

And that's how the Broken Hearts’ Society of Suite 17C is born.

Now, if only Crash, the tattooed, pierced, and probably stoned guy who works at Rion’s newest job, wasn’t so damn sexy and sweet...

If only Matt, the thoughtful and driven pastor’s kid, would quit being so okay with just being Amy’s friend…

If only Lauren, the innocent small-town girl with her own set of issues, would stop finishing Arielle’s sentences and invading her dreams…

it would be a lot easier for the girls to keep their promises to the Society and to themselves.

If only.
My Thoughts
I love Leigh Ann's books, so when she gave a shout out for Beta readers I jumped at the chance. The Broken Hearts' Society of Suite 17C is nothing like her previous work, but I loved every single page, and although I was Beta reading, I couldn't help fall into the pages and really want the best for the characters. With their mixture of personalities they made great protagonists, and after everything that happened to each of them, I really wanted them to find their happy ever after. I do think that Rion was my favourite character of them all though. I love her snarkyness, and her way of telling the truth and not sugar coating everything.

I can't wait to pick up a finished copy for my shelf.
