Reborn Yesterday by Tessa Bailey Review

50609790. sy475 Title: Reborn Yesterday
Author: Tessa Bailey
Format: Ebook

A timeless love story with bite.
It was a night like any other for funeral home director Ginny Lynn, until the exceptionally handsome—and unfortunately deceased—young man on her embalming table sat up, opened his emerald eyes and changed the course of her life forever, making her feel quite fluttery while he was at it.
Humans aren't supposed to know Jonas Cantrell, or any vampire, exists. It's kind of a major rule. Despite his instantaneous bond with perfectly peculiar Ginny, he has no choice but to erase her memories of their one and only meeting.
That was the plan. Before a reluctant Jonas can wipe Ginny's mind clean, she reveals a secret that brings their worlds crashing together. Human and vampire. Past and present. Darkness and light. And while their love is strictly forbidden, it might be the only thing that can save them…

Quarterly Challenge Check-In

At the beginning of 2020 I joined a verity of challenges for 2020. You can find the original post HERE

The first quarter of 2020 has come to an end and I thought I would do a check-in to go over where I am at with each of the challenges.

I have done horrible with this one. I did read Alexa Donne's Burning Brightly. It was the first book I read this year, but I haven't read anymore retellings. I started listening to the new Kirsten White book, but I didn't like the narrator and couldn't get into it. So hopefully I will get back into this one soon.

Audiobook Challenge 2020 - Hot Listens & Caffeinated Reviewer
I have actually completed my original goal for this which was 5-10 books. I have listened to 11 audiobooks as of right now, listening to a Kasie West book currently. So I am probably going to up my goal to 30, but we will see.

Another one I haven't done well with. My goal was to finish 9 or more series that I have already started. I haven't even read any books in a series this year. they have been standalones. So hopefully in the next 3 quarters of the year I am better at this one.

My Life With The Walter Boys by Ali Novak Review

13580846. sy475 Title: My Life with the Walter Boys
Author: Ali Novak
Format: Audiobook
My Life with the Walter Boys centers on the prim, proper, and always perfect Jackie Howard. When her world is turned upside down by tragedy, Jackie must learn to cut loose and be part of a family again.

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades-the perfect daughter. And then...

Surprise #1: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident.

Surprise #2: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters-her new guardians.

Surprise #3: The Walters have twelve sons. (Well, eleven, but Parker acts like a boy anyway)

Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy-loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring-no matter what they say. But proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Gotham High by Melissa de la Cruz Review

51135390. sx318 sy475
Title: Gotham High
Author: Melissa De La Cruz
Format: Ebook/ Netgalley
Release Date: April 7th, 2020
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex and Eliza and The Witches of East End comes a reimagining of Gotham for a new generation of readers. Before they became Batman, Catwoman, and The Joker, Bruce, Selina, and Jack were high schoolers who would do whatever it took--even destroy the ones they love--to satisfy their own motives.

After being kicked out of his boarding school, 16-year-old Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City to find that nothing is as he left it. What once was his family home is now an empty husk, lonely but haunted by the memory of his parents' murder. Selina Kyle, once the innocent girl next door, now rules over Gotham High School with a dangerous flair, aided by the class clown, Jack Napier.

When a kidnapping rattles the school, Bruce seeks answers as the dark and troubled knight--but is he actually the pawn? Nothing is ever as it seems, especially at Gotham High, where the parties and romances are of the highest stakes ... and where everyone is a suspect.

With enchanting art by Thomas Pitilli, this new graphic novel is just as intoxicating as it is chilling, in which dearest friends turn into greatest enemies--all within the hallways of Gotham High!

This COVID-19 thing has really taken a toll on my book buying. I didn't buy any books this week. I did, however, receive several as ARCs.
