So I’ve been having problems logging in over the last week or so, so I’ve got a couple of late posts coming up – the first of which being Dateable by Natalie Decker! A cute little lightweight read for anybody who enjoys contemporary romances, Dateable is an interesting story of coding, blackmail and finding love in the most unlikely places!

Sixteen-year-old Keilah Evans is completely undateable. The crush she has on Gage Fitch? Forget it. He has no idea she exists. But Keilah has something other girls at school don’t: She can code. Keilah decides to solve her dating woes by anonymously creating a hook-up app.
Soon, her app is in demand at every high school in the state. But instead of hooking Keilah up with Gage, the app ships her best friend with him! To make matters worse, a glitch in the app exposes student data, and now, parents, school boards, and the public are demanding the creator of the app’s head on a platter. When a savvy hacker finds out Keilah is behind the app, he uses the info to blackmail her.
In order to save herself and her app, Keilah must make some hard decisions, including seeking help from the last person on Earth she should trust: Ryder Coleson.
With the help of some unlikely allies, Keilah will soon discover she may not be so undateable after all and when it comes to dating, there’s no app required.
So it turns out that it wasn’t just a fluke – I’m actually over my book hangover and back into reading again. You have absolutely no idea how exciting this is because there seen to be a million books I want to read this year. Today I indulged in my mystery thriller obsession and opted for Karen M. McManus’ ‘The Cousins’. This was such a popular book last month/year and I remember there was a real buzz around it. Now I finally managed to get my hands on a copy, I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they’ve never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they’re surprised… and curious.
Their parents are all clear on one point—not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious—and dark—their family’s past is.
The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over—and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.
Surprising myself with a consistent post today – let’s just say that two days in a row is a fluke. Unless I make it three of course. Then it’s planned! Anyways, today I bring to you a book I became interested in when I saw my fellow Goodreads friends marking it up as ‘two star’ and below. Given the interesting (and quite relevant) synopsis, I had to see for myself why this book just wasn’t hitting the spot for reads. Buckle up for another review; this one perhaps not as positive as the last.
