Thank God It’s Saturday! Which means time for a good book! Don’t you know what to read this weekend? No fear, we have some killer recommendations for you. Which one do you want to read this weekend?

Amy’s pick: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

9361589

Summary:

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called “Le Cirque des Reves,” and it is only open at night.

Why should you read this book?

This book is unlike anything you have ever read. The writing style is original, as are the characters and the story is simply magical.

“Something about the circus stirs their souls, and they ache for it when it is absent.”

The moment you turn that first page, you’ll be hooked and you won’t be able to put the book down until you turn the last page.

I wrote a review for this book, which you can read here. Please, check it out. It’s definitely a book worth reading.

Manu’s pick: Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1)

18775297

Summary:

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Why should you read this book?

I loved this book because it has a bit of everything. It’s really, really funny, like laughing out loud funny, it’s sweet, it’s hot, and it even made me cry at some point.

I realize that if I want to live a different life, I have to do it… I have to jump.

The characters are lovable, and their relationship will make you swoon and want to cuddle with your pillow. They’re incredibly adorable. I also loved the second book, and I am now waiting for the third one! Trust me, you won’t regret spending your time with this one.

He makes me feel like I’m the only person on the planet. He looks at me like he’s one second away from devouring me.

Alexandra’s pick: Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot

20601687Summary:

When Julia Buchanan enrolls at St. Anne’s at the beginning of junior year, Charlotte Ryder already knows all about the former senator’s daughter. Most people do… or think they do.

Charlotte certainly never expects she’ll be Julia’s friend. But almost immediately, she is drawn into the larger than-life-new girl’s world—a world of midnight rendezvous, dazzling parties, palatial vacation homes, and fizzy champagne cocktails. And then Charlotte meets, and begins falling for, Julia’s handsome older brother, Sebastian.

But behind her self-assured smiles and toasts to the future, Charlotte soon realizes that Julia is still suffering from a tragedy. A tragedy that the Buchanan family has kept hidden… until now.

Why should you read this book?

I’m currently reading it and this book is really good so far, do expect a review of it soon. If you love boarding schools, secrets and this feeling you get when you read about families and everlasting friendships, this is for you.

I have also been told that this feels like We Were Liars by E.Lockhart at times, and I can totally see it. What I’m loving the most about this book are the relationships, between Charlotte and Julia, Charlotte and Sebastian and Charlotte and the Buchanans. It makes you feel warm somehow. Also, the characters are quite unique and who doesn’t love those kind of characters? They all have different personalities and are somewhat developed in the story.

“Even knowing, as I do now, that grace, power, and, yes, love can hide the darkest elements of the human heart, I would do it all again. Beginning with the night I met her, then him, then the rest. I would do it all again just to know that for a moment I was one of the Great Buchanans.”

Paula’s pick: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

157993

Summary:

Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.

Why should you read this book?

I know it my seem like an odd choice of book, seeing what we normally review, but I feel like everyone should read this book at least once in their life. It’s my favorite book, and what I love most about it is that no matter your age you can always relate to the stories the Little Prince tells, even if you interpret them in different ways.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Rheeza’s pick: Law of Attraction by N.M. Silber

157993
Summary

Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …
Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.
Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes tread upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?

Why should you read this book?

Do you want to read a book that will make you laugh out loud that your stomach will hurt, your cheeks will burn, your eyes will tear up and you will end up on the floor making disturbing noises people will be worried you’re on cracked? Then, Law of Attraction is perfect for you! In fact, the whole series is the freaking Mecca for you.

Seriously, I have never laughed so hard reading a book than I did with this series especially the third book!  Wallbanger? Tangled?  I both love those books to death but it seems like a very serious novel compared to this one. (Ok that was exaggerated but whatever). I don’t know there is something unique about it. Maybe it’s the theme? Because since I’ve read it I became obsess with lawyer themed book. And ugh I’m just going to rave here about how it was such a fantastic read and not just because it was hilarious. It was also just not because of the captivating and witty dialogues, entertaining plot, the steamy hot scenes, and THE COURTROOM scenes (which is very important if you guess on me using capitals). It is not even the amazing characters that you will completely love with all your heart because yes, they are THAT AMAZING. Braden and Gabrielle are one of my favorite book couples ever (“But rheeza you have a loooong list of OTPs” Hold your horses miss… but yes you’re maybe right lol but they’re like in my top 5 ok! So there.). Anyway, it was all of the above. So do yourself a favor and read this one! You can thank me afterwards! 😉
