Book Reviews

Here, I will share with you my 3.5, 4- and 5-star reads. Let's fangirl together! 

Note: Unfortunately, I am no longer able to accept review requests. Between writing, working full-time, attending courses for my second bachelor's degree,  and freelance projects, I just don't have the time. Once I finish reading and reviewing the ARCs I've already received, I will be reviewing personal library items only.

My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill


Sometimes love stories go off script.

Another sultry Georgia summer is about to get a lot hotter. Dee Wilkie is still licking her wounds after getting rejected by the precollege fine arts program of her dreams. But if she'd gone away, she wouldn't have been around to say yes to an unbelievable opportunity: working on the set of a movie filming in her small Southern town that just happens to be starring Milo Ritter, the famous pop star Dee (along with the rest of the world) has had a crush on since eighth grade. 

It's not like Dee will be sharing any screen time with Milo
--she's just a lowly PA. And Milo is so disappointingly rude that Dee is eager to stay far away from him. Except after a few chance meetings, she begins to wonder if just maybe there's a reason for his offensive attitude, and if there's more to Milo than his good looks and above-it-all Hollywood pedigree. Can a relationship with a guy like Milo ever work out for a girl like Dee? Never say never . . .

My Review

was excited to receive a copy of My Unscripted Life as I had enjoyed one of the author's previous novels, The Trouble with Destiny. I found My Unscripted Life the superior book by far. Dee is an interesting, believable character with normal teenage desires, concerns, and fears. I loved following her journey as she discovered who she was, even as she experienced a real-life fairytale by befriending a cute, famous celebrity. I hope there's a sequel! 

I received a complimentary copy from Delacorte Press in exchange for my honest review.
