I've just had so much happen in the past two month and I realized I wasn't reading for the love of it anymore, I was reading for the feeling I HAD to. I dont want that. I want to enjoy a book. So for now, I wont be posting anymore. I might come back after a month but I dont think so. We will just have to see what happens. Sorry. Thanks for following me. Your amazing. But I need a change. I just want to live my life for as long as possible. Books are the best escape, but I have been escaping for too long and now I have to live outside of the line. I hope you understand. Again, Thanks for everything. x.

JEKEL LOVES HYDE by BETH FANTASKEY
Jill Jekel has always obeyed her parents’ rules – especially the one about never opening the mysterious, old box in her father’s office. But when her dad is murdered, and her college savings disappear, she's tempted to peek inside, as the contents might be key to a lucrative chemistry scholarship.
To better her odds, Jill enlists the help of gorgeous, brooding Tristen Hyde, who has his own dark secrets locked away. As the team of Jekel and Hyde, they recreate experiments based on the classic novel, hoping not only to win a prize, but to save Tristen’s sanity. Maybe his life. But Jill’s accidental taste of a formula unleashes her darkest nature and compels her to risk everything – even Tristen’s love – just for the thrill of being… bad.
Release Date: May 3, 2010
What do you think? I think it looks amazing! Beth Fantaskey is an amazing author and I loved reading Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. Brilliant!

Yes, it’s me—Amy Nelson-Barak. I’ve volunteered for ten days of military training in Israel with my friends. The Sababa brochure said it would be a “fun” summer experience. Okay, so I didn’t sign up to prove I’m not a princess…I did it to surprise my hot Israeli boyfriend stationed at the same base.
Too bad nobody told me:
- It’s hot in the Negev desert…like, so hot your makeup melts off and you get under-boob sweat spots.
- You can’t sleep in until 11 a.m.
- You shouldn’t kill bees with your flatiron—don’t ask.
- Peeing in a hole isn’t easy (when you’re a girl)—double don’t ask.
When I find out our team leader is my boyfriend Avi, I’m totally psyched…until I learn he has to treat me like all the other recruits. Can you say OY VEY!
This book was laugh-out loud funny! So many adventures are taken and risks. Amy just wants to know whats going on and control the situation, but in the end she seems to get everything in perfect place again. She is true to herself and what she wants, but while on her runs, falls, and shootings, she also becomes "warrior woman". Simone did an excellent job in writing and playing out the plot.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize there were two other books before this one until after I read it. Even so, I didn't notice. I was able to know what was happening, who everyone was, and understood everything easily. It was very entertaining, and sadly short. I would love to read more of Amy's story or one of her friends. They are all different characters altogether.
Amy makes her boyfriend seem like a Greek god. But the Greek gods can be deceiving. It's a story about trying to in fact ruin your boyfriend's reputation, and get him back. x.
