Losing It by Cora Carmack
Losing It

iheartbooksbooks, April 29, 2014

“You burned your leg with your straightener? How long is your leg hair?”

Let’s talk about the deceiving cover; anyone looking at this book will assume that it’s about intercourse and yes, the subject is brought up and there is tension between two characters, but otherwise it’s nothing like 50 Shades of Grey or so I’ve heard (never read it!). It begins with Bliss Edwards, the only virgin within her group of friends, who decides to have a one-night stand with a handsome, British man, she meets in a bar. After arriving to her apartment on his motorcycle, they head to the bedroom, where Bliss is finally going to be losing it. Out of no where, Bliss decides this isn’t what she wants and leaves him in bed, her bed. Once he’s gone, she’s incredibly embarrassed, but relieved she won’t be seeing him again. The next morning she arrives to her class to find out that the sexy British man that was just in her bed is her new professor and this is where the story picks up. Bliss is an extremely awkward girl that finds herself in very inelegant, but funny situations throughout the book. Her love interest is extremely attractive and most of the time less controlled with his feelings, which I found annoying. The romance is somewhat fast paced and a bit instantaneous love, but it fits with how the book flows. The best parts were when Bliss and the professor were chatting, but other than that, things were a bit slow and boring. Overall, this book was a fun, easy read with a cute ending.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Eleanor and Park

iheartbooksbooks, April 29, 2014

“Don’t bite his face, Eleanor told herself. It’s disturbing and needy and never happens in situation comedies or movies that end with big kisses.”

Swoon. Swoon. Swoon. This book was amazing. Eleanor & Park centers around two misfits trying to get through high school in the year 1986 but gradually fall in love. It all begins when new girl, Eleanor, steps onto the school bus and takes a sit next to Park. This isn’t instant love; disgust, anger, and judgment hinder communication and attraction. It isn’t until a comic book is brought onto the bus that things start to turn. Comic book reading, music listening, and finally small talking takes the two to another world and brings them closer. Park and Eleanor would rather think about each other, but at times their home life tears them apart. It’s clear from the beginning that both protagonists are imperfect but together they are perfection. Eleanor and Park are so real. The emotions they convey become your emotions. You love them as characters, but you love them more when they’re together. This is no ordinary romance; it will have you smiling stupidly, crying uncontrollably, and more than anything warming your heart. I haven’t read a book that was so realistic, so lovable, and so heartbreaking, all at the same time.
