My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Buy the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him. On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome, blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bundle of bad boy. Maybe that's why Taylor's afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn't want to get burned, and even though her other roommates adore him, she wants him gone before it's too late. Hunter himself has been been burned before, but the fact that Taylor calls him out on his crap and has the sexiest laugh ever make him decide maybe love isn't a lost cause. They make a bet: if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment--and leave her alone. The problem is, the more time they spend together, the less she hates him, and the more she moves toward love. But when the man who holds the key to Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces and threatens to wreck everything, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.

My Review: This book was a bit along the lines of Wait for You and while many things were different, some were very similar. I felt it had the same feel in the relationship between Taylor and Hunter. ALthough Hunter is a bit wilder and has a bad boy edge that he simply can't shake off. He's hot. Plain and simple. And Lordy he plays the guitar. Fan of Coldplay? Loves 'Fix You'? A man after my own heart. The book was great though and in my opinion Taylor was pretty strong about facing all of the issues she was facing. It could not have been easy what she had to do and years later it still afected and followed her. Loved it.

The book was fantastic. Cam was just... wow. And so cute and cocky—I mean, confident. Avery got on my nerves a teeny tiny bit. I was totally on Cam's side with everything. I mean, he was being so raw and real with her and she still couldn't confide in him. No matter that he had proven to her over and over again that my God the man was serious about her! That he was trustworrthy and caring and loyal. What happened to Avery was horrible, it was worse than what I originally thought actually. And I loathe her parents with such firceness that just.. gah! She was weak, but she was 14, for chrissake it was only natural she be scared and confused. Yeah, that's for Molly.
Anyway, fantastic book and I adored the chemistry between them and the Sundays :)

Losing It by Cora Carmack

I totally loved this book! It was so funny and very, very awkward. I'm just going to put this out there... I'm a very awkward person. Not, like, my personality, but awkward things happen to me all the freaking time (trust me, my friends can testify to that) and I'm so glad I'm not alone. LOL. Bliss is very funny. I adored her character, and she's just so likable that even when she gets herself into these ridiculous situations you can't help but chuckle and be like, "Oh, Bliss!"
Garrick was another type of like. The man was H-O-T. He was so cool and also funny and I loved that he took everything lightly. Although he could get pretty intense. The heat was palpable in those freaking pages.
I loved how everything developed and right from page one it sucked you in and didn't release you! It was fantastic and I recommend it to everyone. Definitely made it to my favorites.

This book. It was very different from many--possibly all--of the books I've read. It was certainly real. The story was very insightful and gives you a look, not only into how many teenagers think and what they go through, but how families truly are. We all have problems, and boy that's the truth. The tricky thing is how we deal with them. Whether we are in constant and incessant denial (like Hannah's parents), or we take it all with passive resistance (like Hannah), or rant and complain and argue (like Ryan). It's all in how we are able to cope and deal with our problems. I like to think Hannah is just trying to get by without stirring the pot too much. It's a very great read and has a secret that will leave you a bit agog and also give you a better insight on the Sampsons.
I found myself to be very identified with Hannah and all of her passive resistance, because that's pretty much my method. Except I exchange her SAT prep list for my iPod. You have to choose your battles (whoever said that is one wise cookie) and for me, it's basically my motto. If it's not my battle I forge on with my ever handy iPod and passive resistance. After all, someday you'll be able to decide for yourself what to do and how to do it. I'll stop rambling now.
