 RADIATE
by
MARLEY GIBSON
Published by: Graphia / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Acquired: Marley Gibson

I read and reviewed Radiate by Marley Gibson a little while ago and loved it!  As the mum of a cheerleader and co-owner of a cheer merchandise store... I thought it would be great to get a couple signed and give them away. It's an inspirational and enjoyable story that teenagers could do with reading!
Marley sent me a stack of bookmarks and three signed books !

Look at that Brazilian Butt on Jace.

Been too busy with other blog stuff to read it....*BLASPHEMY*..ha!
I am just hanging to read about 8 books ASAP....gotta clear the schedule people!!! and stay awake..hehe!




MAGNIFICENT TRILOGY
FIFTY SHADES
BRILLIANT, BOLD, HONEST WRITING


Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L. James
I bought on Kindle
Fifty Shades Darker
Fifty Shades Freed


Can't rave enough about this trilogy!!
I've read them all, I know there are a lot of readers who are a bit icky for this trilogy, but that is why the world of books is what it is, sometimes we don't all dig the same book. So much more than sex are these books, it is bottom line a love story about saving a guy who was abused and hurt in many ways. And a girl who was the only person who could save him and give him the life he deserved. Christian to me is a very stand out character as he IS living a life that not a lot understand and he is a very bold character that E.L. James has written with a lot of her heart and soul. I personally think, to truly give this trilogy a go you have to read the whole lot, not one book , not half a book and think that is all that this trilogy is about, cause it's not, there is a whole lot more you are missing out on:)

    1. Thanku Vegan,

      I had my Sam..many years ago..he was my bad boy of the neighbourhood...my little boy used to get beat up all the time. Quietly I think he was king of the suburb and had to fight off contenders. He was a tough little guy. An Alpha puddy tat...I used to bathe his wounds and he was good to go again, he had such a personality. To this day hubby and I remember bad boy Sammy, my ginger bad boy!! I love the ones which ooze personality, they look at you a certain way, whether they be cranky, you know they are telling you something with a look. Sometimes that look is 'back off I am having a bad hair day'..hehe
