Personal Apocalypse By Nazarea Andrews
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
This was my first ever zombie book I have read.
It wasn’t to much like I have heard some are about zombies which was great for me.
This book was done tastefully.
Basically Josiah is the main character, who has been living within this world of zombies as a baby with his mother the doctor.
The doctor acidently is the one who made the virus.
The book is told from Parker and Josiah’s point of view. They go off with a few people to Africa to look for supplies like good and whatever. But things change from bad to worse. They think it’s empty there and they find zombies and people who live with them.
Check this book out…. If you want a little suspense…a little scare…and some love at the end of the world.
My review for this book-
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
This book for sure gives you all the feels.
There is sadness and laughter and sure people get mad and are heart broken.
This book is told from different point of views. We learn that Jaycee is still going through the loss of her brother from 5 years ago. She basically loses herself for awhile by doing all the Dares her brother Jake would do. Not caring if she dies. Then her Ex-best friend Natalie is going through some things and guilt about what happened the day Jake died. Zach is Natalie’s on again off again boyfriend who doesn’t want to grow up or let go to have a great future. Bishop is Zach’s sort of best friend who is going through a bad break up.
Then there is Mik, Jake’s old best friend from childhood. Who looks out for Jaycee and also has a crush on her.
These unlikely friends come together to help Jaycee with going to the places her brother use to go to. And in turn they all find themselves and help each other out and become friends again.
This book really opens you up to a lot of emotions. Great book!
Josiah grew up in a dying world. The Holdout survived, but when you are the son of Sylvia Cragen, you give up delusions early. He knew that they would die bloody–it wasn’t a matter of if. Only when.
Parker shouldn’t be alive. He should have died long before scouts from the Last Holdout rescued him. And he knows better than to believe that sailing away from the safety of the Holdout is a good idea.
Now, without the Holdout to protect them, all of his nightmares are coming true. Josiah is just crazy enough to believe that a fresh start is a good thing. But Parker has lived as prey, hunted by zombies and survivors before–and he knows that no one really survives. In the wild, zombie claimed world outside the walls of safety, there is only the dead walking.

About Without Benefits:
Emma will always be a New Yorker at heart, even though she has a perfect life in Seattle. She has a prestigious job fundraising for the Seattle Symphony, a handsome boyfriend who adores her, and a Belltown apartment with views of the Sound. It should be more than enough to keep her pain from not playing the piano, and her 9/11 nightmares, away.
But when her old college crush, Owen, comes back into her life, it’s more than just spending time with him that’s causing cracks in her picture-perfect life. As she steps back on stage, and back into the spotlight, her connection with Owen and his world, dredges up old memories that Emma worked hard to forget.
Emma’s past comes back to haunt her, forcing her to face the truth about more than just her fears of returning back to New York. As her once perfect life begins to burn down, Emma is forced to figure out what she really wants: her fundraiser and cocktail party-filled life with her boyfriend, or forging a new future with the one thing, and one person, she’s ever loved–even if it means returning to New York.

The piece of sheet music had sat untouched for a decade, tucked away in other sheet music, left at the bottom of a box. It was poor timing, finding it now. Really poor.
Emma’s friends would say it was fate. Her mom and sister would say that she should sort through her things more often. Emma had to agree with her family on this one.
Her thirtieth birthday coming and going sparked a nesting spree of sorts. This had to be the only reason behind finding it. Starting in the front room of their apartment and working her way back, she went through everything: cleaned off bookshelves, cleaned out closets, dusted, touched up, changed out artwork. There were some things—like the pile of sheet music that now sat on her kitchen table, the piece of sheet music that she couldn’t stop staring at—she wasn’t sure she’d be able to part with.
This binder of hand-written music, work, the e-mail, and the wedding coming up—she just couldn’t escape Owen any longer. The longer time went on, the harder it was getting. Wasn’t it supposed to be the other way around? It should’ve been easier by now. But it wasn’t, and that’s why she had an e-mail drafted. Well, sort of—it was blank still, but at least it was open.
“I don’t even know what to say to you,” Emma said out loud, reading over Owen’s latest e-mail. It had landed in her mailbox a week ago with an invitation to dinner and she still hadn’t given him an answer.
She closed doors on everything in her past, always. She’d left New York, and the empty spaces in the skyline, and didn’t look back. She couldn’t—it hurt too much. Emma never spoke to ex-boyfriends after the relationship expired. But Owen wasn’t an ex. Maybe it was best to rip the Band-Aid off now, privately, instead of in front of at the engagement party in front of all of their college friends.
She typed up a quick, one line response: Dinner tonight?
Hitting send, excitement and guilt crushed her. She hadn’t even considered her boyfriend and his feelings into the equation.

BEAUTIFUL by Ella Bordeaux
Release Date: June 14, 2016
Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her. He wanted … needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to mask with an amazing smile.
When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only grew when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
For the first time in months, she felt alive.
The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again … the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robbed her of any chance of happiness.
Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?
