    I am conducting what I m shelving as a New Adult NA Experiment I m going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems Here s hoping Just a quick warning this book has a fair bit of sex in it and so I will be talking about sex in this review Maybe don t read this if sex talk makes you clutch your crucifix in horror or, you know, combust.I ve been reading quite a few indie novels lately some were good I am conducting what I m shelving as a New Adult NA Experiment I m going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems Here s hoping Just a quick warning this book has a fair bit of sex in it and so I will be talking about sex in this review Maybe don t read this if sex talk makes you clutch your crucifix in horror or, you know, combust.I ve been reading quite a few indie novels lately some were good and some not so good But I ve remained safe from anything outrageously bad until now The Edge of Never is one of those books which has a crazily high average rating, it is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wallstreet Journal bestselling blockbuster and it managed to offend me at least once in every single chapter I found it to be a mere step away from Beautiful Disaster in the misogyny department and what it lacked in that area was made up for in the extremely bad writing Honestly, it was so bad it was kind of hilarious.I finally feel that I have read enough to safely make the claim that this new adult genre thing we ve got going on now basically, well, sucks It seems to be a combination of all the annoying, cliche elements of the young adult genre and a bunch of sex scenes and or coarse language In terms of the writing, this book is pretty awful The author seems to favour certain words for a short period of time to the extent that they appear in every other sentence and then switch to a new favourite and the pattern repeats Some writers have that annoying habit of telling rather than showing but Redmerski does something that I found much worse she shows, then tells She uses body language to express certain emotions but insults the reader s intelligence by adding the tells afterwards I opened the book again just now to find an example and came across one on the second page this is by no means the worst but hopefully it will help express what I meanCam, she says, cocking her head to one side to appear thoughtful.But there s no need for me to get nitpicky about language This book provides muchglaring problems.Like the fact that every girl young woman in this book is called a slut except the protagonist If you wanted to play a drinking game with this book, you would only need the word slut to get completely trashed Slut is even used twice in chapter one In fact, I wish I d counted how many chapters didn t use the word slut I can certainly guarantee it would be fewer than how many did Camryn MC talks about her ex as the jerk who cheated on me with some red haired slut and her best friend lol jk is constantly called slutty and is only there so Camryn can compare the two of them Natalie is promiscuous where Camryn is a good girl, Natalie wears revealing clothing where Camryn likes her pastel cardigans, Natalie thinks about sex where Camryn muses about life, the universe and everything.And what a lot of it comes down to I hated Camryn Absolutely hated her I put this quote in my status update but here it is again so we can all marvel at the stupidity Instead of sitting around dreaming up new sex positions, as Natalie often does about Damon, I dream about things that really matter What the air in other countries feels like on my skin, how the ocean smells, why the sound of rain makes me gasp.When I read that, I did some weird combination of eye rolling, cackling laughter and general despairing that so many people are happy to buy into Camryn s philosophical bullshit Camryn, you re not deep, you re a fucking moron A misogynistic, holier than thou moron.And then, of course, we have the real reason this book is a bestseller Andrew I get it, actually, I really do He s gorgeous, he s sexy, he likes to talk all naughty, he loves to go down on you and doesn t ask for anything in return, in fact, his mission in life is nothingor less than to make you come I know why you ladies all love this and at least he s not Travis screw loose Maddox But he comes with his own set of problems too and, even if he didn t, he still wouldn t be anywhere near hot enough to make up for the rest of this mess One thing that I suppose comes down to my personal taste in guys and how they speak to me is lines like thisif you were to let me fuck you, you would have to let me own you I mean, is this hot to you For me, it s somewhere halfway between gross and hilarious But each to their own, I guess To be honest, a lot of the sex scenes that I assume are supposed to be knicker twistingly hot just made me laugh Camryn faces deep moral struggles with the P word, which she later hilariously overcomes view spoiler lick my pussy, Andrew goddammit, lick my fucking pussy hide spoiler This is apparently a word that she associates with porn stars, something which leads into an interesting conversation where women are split into two groups the slutty kind that are only good enough to give a guy head, and the unslutty kind that are worthHere s the quoteWell, when Dominique Starla, he picks the name from the air, does it, it s just to some random guy lookin to get off behind a keyboard His green eyes fall on me that guy s not dreaming about anything with her except her face in his lap Then he looks back at the road But when someone I dunno like a sweet, sexy, completely un slutty girl does it, the guy is thinking about a lotthan her face in his lap Ugh Nowords on that I just can t I think I ve had enough of talking about this book But onething I will say is that part of the reason I kept reading was because so many reviews promised a big heart breaking twist towards the end Well, maybe I ve been watching Sherlock too much, but I saw it coming a mile off Just sayin.Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr

that I absolutely HAD to read this next, I started reading it late last night and ended up staying up reading ALL night and finishing it around 5am Kept me totally riveted This book is a beautiful story about friendship and love, of living in the moment, living life to the fullest, being true to yourself and not being afraid to reach for your dreamsWhat compels any of us to do the things we do when deep down a part of us just wants to break free from it allCam is tired of the monotony of her life She wantsbut just isn t sure exactly what is missing and is open to possibilities When her old life falls apart, she decides to get a change of pace and hops on a Greyhound bus with nothing but essential necessities ready to see where life will take her.This is where she meets Andrew He s so similar to her and yet so completely different Intriguing And they decide to join up and go on a road trip together But he s got a secret and as they bond over the course of their journey, and fall in love, it has the potential to either tear them apart or cement them togetherI think when you fall in love, like true love, its love for life All the rest is just experiences and delusionsI know a some people have said that the beginning of this book was a little slow, and I ll admit that it wasn t a fast paced thrill ride or anything, but personally, I really liked that part Maybe it was because I knew something exciting was coming, but I liked how the story took its time to familiarize you with the characters It was a quiet build up and honestly, I enjoyed its pacing.The book wrapped me up in Cam s adventure I found her journey liberating even just as a reader.And when Andrew came onto the scene, I fell in love Guys, he has a crooked smile, dimples, tattoos and is pretty badass in a fight Oh, and he calls her babe Be still my heart 3I enjoyed watching Cam and Andrew slowly building their friendship, establishing trust, getting comfortable with each other and bonding despite being complete strangersThe heart always wins out over the mind The heart, although reckless and suicidal and a masochist all on its own, always gets in the way The book is told in alternate POVs but it starts out primarily from Cam s POV And it isn t until 16% that we get Andrew s I really liked this because by that time, I felt very connected to Cam and was totally ready to get in Andrew s head And as the book went on, the POVs got progressivelyentwined and the switch happened progressivelyfrequently mirroring their growing bond.I was originally planning on only reading half of it last night and saving the rest for the morning, but when I got to the 49% mark, HOLY HELL The book just took this AMAZING turn I mean, I was enjoying it before but then it was just WOW WOW WOWWWW It didn t matter that it was 2 30AM, suddenly I was WIDE awake and RIVETED to the page The questions came flooding in I started forming dozens of theories I needed to knowTo get answers To figure Andrew outI don t know how I got myself into this, but I do know that as much as my conscience is ripping into my fucking ears, telling me to leave her alone, I can t I don t want to.We ve already gone too farAndrewI was squirming, fanning myself, blushing, flipping pages like crazy There was this intensity to them It was quiet at first but it just didn t stop building.It was like this perfect puzzle with a key piece missing Something just wasn t quite right but you didn t know quite what it was.And the confession scene just phenomenally written I was right there in the moment with them Totally wrapped up in their story.I did have my suspicions about the big secret but when everything finally clued in for me at 90%, my heart just DROPPED.By 92%, all my suspicions had all been confirmed and I was FREAKING out The ending was just amazing, incredible, perfect WOW Totally beautiful I don t want to give it away, but just take heart, there IS an epiloguedwelling and planning is bullshit, he says You dwell on the past, you can t move forward Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you say stagnant in the same place all your life His eyes lock on mine Live in the momentThis book really drives home the message of how important it is to live in the moment, to follow your heart and not waste a precious second of your lifeI wanted to say thank you For what for making me feel alive Well, everybody needs help feeling alive again every once in a while No, she says seriously I didn t sayagain, Andrew for making me feel alive for thefirst time And can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the New Adult genre It truly rides the line between a bit of the YA emotional feelings and just enough Adult heat to keep things spicy.I totally loved this and would highly recommend adding it to your TBRs CASTING See above and below Except for the two images of Nicholas Lemons here as Andrew that are my own casting, the rest of the pictures were taken from the author s

EDGE OF NEVER How about THE EDGE OF GLORY because I m on that state when I finished reading this.Seriously, there are NO WORDS to describe how UH MAY ZING this book is.Unputdownable Fun Witty PoignantBEAUTIFUL.This is a story of friendshipThis is a story of LOVEThis is a story of serendipityand a story of moving on, letting go, and living lifeLiving life in the NOW.This is the story of Camryn and Andrew image errorHave you ever wondered what it would be like to backpack across the world Just you and a backpack with a few necessities No bills No getting up at the same time every morning to go to a job you hate Just you and the world out ahead of you You never know what the next day is going to bring, who you ll meet, what you ll have for lunch or where you might sleepCamryn , once the outgoing girl that she was, has become an uptight girl because of her parents divorce, her older brother, Cole, going to jail, and the death of her boyfriend She doesn t feel free.After an unexpected incident that happened when she and her best friend Nat went clubbing, she decided to leave North Carolina and go on to God knows where.Enter Andrew Parrish , gorgeous green eyed hottie who she meets at the bus, and carries the same emotional baggage as Cam s From then on, a friendship orhas developed, they have been inseparable on embarking the journey of lifeand LOVE.What I love about this book is that the characters are likeable They have been fighting their own demons but I admire how strong and laid back Andrew is I ve been reading so many books with asshole heroes and I m so glad that Andrew isn t one of them He s F U N, outgoing, a gentleman, sweet and all It s safe to say he s PERFECT He made Camryn open up and relax and just enjoy life He lets her do things she hasn t done before He makes her feel alive.This book also has alternating POVs but I love Andrew s POV better.Also, I think the author is a FANGIRL, which explains all the celebrity references i.eDamon is far from looking like white trash he could be Alex Pettyfer s younger brother the guy looked like the lovechild of Adam Levineand , she twirls her fingers around above her head to let another famous example materialize on her tongueJensen Ackles I don t listen to Justin Bieber or that crazy meat wearin bitch She and I went to school with Shay Mitchell and Hayden Panettiere, Megan Fox was prom queen, Chris Hemsworth was prom king And then there was Natalie s worst enemy, a cheerleader who tried to steal Damon away from her in tenth grade Natalie said she was the slutty version of Nina Dobrev Hihi LOVE these lines.Anyway, I don t think I can continue writing this without giving away too much so, I ll leave you with scenes to look out for Cam and Andrew s first meeting Andrew to the rescue Their witty banters and crazy convos My fave view spoiler We head over to the medicines and there s a middle aged couple standing in front of the cough syrup, reading the labels Andrew says casually, without lowering his voice, Babe, did you find that yeast infection stuff My eyes spring open and I freeze in front of the Tylenol.He removes a small box of Advil from the shelf.The couple pretends not to have heard what he said, but I know they heard him I mean are you even sure that s what s causing the itch he goes on and I m literally melting from the heat in my face.The couple does glance over this time, covertly.Andrew is grinning his ass off at me from the side, pretending to be reading labels.I want to smack him, but instead, I play him at his own game Yeah, baby I found it, I say as casually as he had What about you Did you see if they have extra small sized condoms hide spoiler CAMRYN S ADMISSION CONFESSION THE LETTER AND THE EPIC ENDING I have a lot of fave lines, but I ll leave you with this one from AndrewJust that dwelling and planning is bullshit, he says You dwell on the past, you can t move forward Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you stay stagnant in the same place all your life His eyes lock on mine Live in the moment, he says as if making a serious point, where everything is just right, take your time and limit your bad memories and you ll get wherever it is you re going a lot faster and with less bumps in the road along the way Some of you might ask,Does this book have HEATell you what, GO READ IT

Fucking Book Ever Full review to come Okay, before I get into this review because I am still a bit mind and emotional fucked right now, I have to say.when I first saw the blurb and the cover for this book, I knewI KNEW I would love this book The cover spoke to me and I was instantly drawn to want to read this book I thought it wasn t coming out til next year but oh my fucking god, when I found out it was out, I was ALL OVER this babylike a baby on it s mommy s nipple I was like GIVE ME THIS NOW So I bought it, of course I was finishing another book at the time so that I could give this book ALL of my attention When my gals recommend a book and hound and hound and hound and demand and demand somehint hint Sylvia I KNOW it s a must read book The cover, being such a cover whore that I am I was instantly in love with this book I mean, look at it GorgeousbeautifulPERFECT Then to add the blurboh yes, gimme gimme gimme gimme Put a perfect cover with a perfect blurb together and what do you get A FUCKING MASTERPIECE Yep, that s what I got I was never disappointed OH MY GOD Okay, okay I know, I am babbling too muchlike a psycho and y all are thinking shut the fuck up and get on with the review dumbass and so I will before my resolve slips and I break down and fall apart all over again.So we have Camryn Bennett I wonder if she s related to Josh Bennett haha , a 20 year old who is fed up with her monotonous regular going nowhere life where she works at a department store Her boyfriend Ian died from a tragice car accident while they were in high school, her parents divorced, her brother Cole went to prison for killing a man during a drunk accident, and her best friend since second grade accuses her of being a lying bitch in which I wanted to slap across the facehard So basically her life is shit She decides it s time to quit living for everyone elseand start living for herself And so she does She sets out to leave North Carolina on a road trip to Idaho because they are known for their potatoes, which was freakin hilarious how that happened and now when I buy Idaho potatoes, I ll forever think of Cam When she gets on a bus and starts her new found self discoveryeverything changes Andrew Parrish is 25 and on a road trip from Texas to see his dying father in Wyoming He is reluctant to go because he knows that saying goodbye would make this real and it hurts him in the worst way So, reluctantly he heads out on a bus to face realityand pain.Little do they know, Camryn and Andrew meet on the same busfor the same reasons not sure what they want from life but knowing they want somethingthan what they re getting now And so their journey together begins when they meet on the infamous bus and the infamous road trip to Never Finally, an under populated bus I might actually get some deep sleep on It s all I really want to do The longer I stay awake, theI think about all of the things I don t want to think about I don t know what I m doing, or where I m going, but I do know that I want to do whatever it is and get there soon I doze off after staring out the window next to me for an hour.Muffled headphone music blaring right behind me wakes me up sometime after dark.At first, I just sit here, hoping maybe he ll notice the top of my now fully awake head bobbing over the seat and decide to turn the music down.But he doesn t.I lean up, reaching back to rub a crooked muscle in my neck from sleeping on my arm and then I turn around to look at him Is he asleep How can anyone actually sleep with music blasting in their ears like that The bus is pitch dark except for a couple of dim lights shining down onto books and magazines from above the passenger s seats and the little green and blue lights at the front of the bus in the driver s dashboard The guy sitting behind me is covered by darkness but I can see one side of his face lit up by the moonlight.I contemplate it for a second and then push myself up with my knees on the seat and I lean over the back of it, reaching out and tapping him on the leg.He doesn t move I tap him harder He stirs and slowly opens his eyes, looking at me with my stomach hanging over the top of the seat.He reaches up and pulls the earbuds from his ears, letting the music funnel from the tiny speakers Mind turning it down a little You could hear that he says.I raise a brow and say, Uhhh, yeah, it s pretty loud He shrugs and thumbs the MP3 player for the volume button and the music fades Thanks I say and slide back down in my seat.Okay, that was long and for some reason I was compelled to type all of that But that was Cam and Andrew s first encounter And I think it was absolutely amazing and meaningful Haha, yeah I m nuts But seriously this book had me up and down and on turns after turns andturns with them that I was not sure where up or down was any I was not sure where I was any I absolutely LOVED EVERY MINUTE of this fabulous joyride I for one love roadtrips This book made me want to get in my car, drive to a bus station and ride until I was beyond lost I can t describe my feelings for this book I just, I am so lost right now This book made me FEEL every emotion good or bad that the characters felt and then some Right now, I am bawling again, just thinking about this experience I shared with my friends I loved it Camryn She was fantastic The kind of girl that everyone would want to be friends with She s smart, witty, funny, sarcastic which probably goes with witty , sweet, caring and just plain amazing I loved her character especially when she starts to come into her own and become herself around Andrew I love her sassy side and the side that she initally shows us eventhough she is trusting, she puts up a barrier to protect herself, which I can completely understand her reasoning Then once she realizes Andrew s intentions, she puts them down and lets him in I loved her romantic side too Once she feels comfortable, she really laid it on thick.my God, she shocked me but in the best way I was happy to share this journey with her She s very likeable and relatable Ahhhhh, she s just..amazing Andrew Oh my sweet sweet sexy Andrew Parrish I can t even think of the right words to describe him He is just the most amazing guy I ve ever gotten to know He reminds me of my Joshy Bennett and that s why I ve taken to him so fast and hard Seriously, his sweet and caring side was truly incredible I loved his fierce protectiveness of Cam Though some may refer to it as a crazy jealous side, but I see why and once the readers read into it , thethey ll understand as well There is NOTHING and I mean NOTHING..I didn t like about him He s so irresistable from the start from his sarcastic dirty mouth which I happen to love by the way to his sweet soulful understanding side I loved every minute I spent with him and like Cam, it was hard NOT to fall head over heels in love with this boy He rocked my world.in EVERY way, and yes.the naughty way too I loved how we got both POV s Honestly, we NEEDED both pov s to relate better to both characters Jessica did a remarkable job of developing the story from the beginning to the very last page I noticed alot of people felt the story was dragging in the beginning I didn t feel that way one bit I loved every second of every page of every minute I spent with these two I love road trips so I never got boredbut always wondering where their next stop would be or where they were headed next Once they got off the bus and both went on the road trip to Never together by car, I was so giddy with excitement I felt like I was in the back seat and experiencing this whole trip with them It was AMAZING Just to get on the open road and go.who the fuck does that Boy this book sure made me want to do it now Damn, why didn t I think of that when I had the chance LOLThe relationship First, I was glad it wasn t insta loveor at least in the sense of Oh you re hot, I love you let s get married and have babies and run away together It was never like that I felt this friendship turned romance really developed slowly and just right I was glad Cam had kept her wall up for awhile.long enough to make us squirm and say Okay, now let s move on, we know you love each other QUIT STALLING.YOU VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH because at least it wasn t a quick one two three thing It would have lost the appeal then and wouldn t have been as exciting or intense As it was, I started to get frustrated with both of them for ignoring their attraction But once things started to take a turn.OH MY GOD I was so excited and giddy and squealing like a teenager Perfect OK, defenses are back up Bring it on.I snarl over at him, crossing my arms First off, I don t listen to Justin Beiber And second, Gaga isn t so bad Playing the shock value card a little too long, I admit but I like some of her stuff That s shit music and you know it he replies and shakes his head Classic rock is where it s at, he says matter of factly and then gazes out ahead Zeppelin, the Stones, Journey, Foreigner He lets his head fall to the side to look over at me again Any of that ringing any bells Ahhhhh, a man after my own heart He likes the shit I love Yes, Journey, Foreigner and the Stonessome of my faves I m an 80 s music freak I love you Andrew What s your name he asks, setting his drink on the grass.I wonder if I should give him my real name Cam I say, settling on the short version Short for what I didn t expect that I hesitate, my eyes trailing, Camryn I admit I figure with all the lies I m going to have to keep track of, I might as well be truthful about my first name at least It s one less significant piece of information I don t have to remember to keep under wraps I m Andrew Andrew Parrish So how old are you Twenty five, he says What about you Twenty Well, it s good to meet you twenty year old Cam short for Camryn heading to Idaho to see her sister who just had a baby Sigh I love you Andrew, God damn he is perfect And he s from TEXAS.which is where I live Ahhhh, I want to go stalk him Wait, what He s not real HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT hands cover mouth in bafflement Andrew moments She wasn t shy to tell me to turn my music down, with a snippy ass attitude at that She got pissed when i accused her of havinf Beiber Fever it pisses me off that I even know what the fuck that means I blame that on society and I get the feeling that she would have no problem kicking me in the nuts if I touched her in an inappropriate way Not that I would Hell no But it s good to know that she s the type.Hell yeah, I like this girl If you were going to let me fuck you, you would have to let me own you A woman who knows what she wants sexually and isn t afraid to express it is so fucking hot, Camryn Tell Me What You Want Or, I won t give it to you OH DEAR GOD fans self I absolutely fucking melt when she looks up at me like that How would I ever say no to her Whether is was about sleeping next to a pile of cow shit or under a bridge overpass next to a homeless drunk I would sleep anywhere with her I kissed you because I wanted to, I say I want to do everything with you, Camryn Trust me In just a few days I ve managedpositions with you than there are in the Kama Sutra I ve wanted to I notice I m white knuckling the steering wheel Don t lie to me, baby, did you get hurt anywhere I swear to fucking

    view spoiler Baby hide spoiler Why was that necessary for the story Because I certainly think that it was not.Are you kidding me OMG This is just some sort of fairytale Don t get me wrong I liked this book in some ways, I almost loved it BUT Okay, cause there is going to beBUTs, let s start with the beginning.Damon and Ian in the same story Sorry, that made me think about Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore Not a big deal.Then I really like the part with Blaike Or Blair view spoiler Baby hide spoiler Why was that necessary for the story Because I certainly think that it was not.Are you kidding me OMG This is just some sort of fairytale Don t get me wrong I liked this book in some ways, I almost loved it BUT Okay, cause there is going to beBUTs, let s start with the beginning.Damon and Ian in the same story Sorry, that made me think about Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore Not a big deal.Then I really like the part with Blaike Or Blaire maybe Blake the barman at the beginning He was sort of cool He s like the second best character after Asher.Then, Natalie was so annoying I was happy when Cam ignored her The part on the bus was one of the best ones So much fun Then it was getting slower and a bit boring Maybe it was because I read so much of this book in one day But it just felt that the plot got stuck and it was not really going anywhere And then after the meeting with Andrew s mum, it again picked up, and I managed to find my interest in the book Besides the end, which was sort of too view spoiler HAPPY hide spoiler , only unicorns were missing.And since the beginning, I felt like the author loves the Sad Ending I expected her to rip our hearts away, I was ready to be shattered.So after reading the last chapter or was it the prologue I was like this Really shocking Well, it was pretty good but anyway I think it s a better 2,5 5 Soo My problem was that I expected really a lot almost too much from this book Or maybe something completely different
