Making Faces by Amy Harmon

 

Fern

If God makes all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?

 

Ambrose

"What scares you the most, son?" his father asked quietly. "Not a damn thing, Dad. I used to be afraid of going to hell. But now that I'm here, hell doesn't seem so bad."

What a heartbreaking, beautiful, inspiring story of love, death, and healing.

 

Fern has never been considered beautiful. Not even pretty. So she knows there is no chance of Ambrose, the outrageously handsome high school wrestling star, noticing her. But that hasn't stopped her from loving him. Even if she has to do it from afar. And then Ambrose and his friends join the Army... and only one comes back.

 

 

"... I'm just telling you right now. The lucky ones are the ones who don't come back."

 

Fern has got to be one of my favorite heroines ever. She was so brave, selfless and... pure. She was this ball of goodness and love and it's practically impossible not to love her.

 

Ambrose broke my heart. In every flashback, in every thought, you could feel the pain. His suffering over surviving. Making Faces is told both in past and present and what really tore at me was how fast Ambrose and his friends were growing up. Once they went to high school they joined the Army and you could see how that was taking their innocence away. I mean, we're talking about kids who are fighting for their country, seeing death & risking their lives. There was this one scene 'Get A Tattoo' that to me, was one of the most powerful scenes in the book.

 

Seeing Fern & Ambrose's relationship bloom was so... heartening. It wasn't about one healing the other but about them healing together. Being each other's rock. Supporting each other. Learning to love each other and themselves. The writing drew you in and immersed you into the story. My whole focus, for two days, was this book. Nothing held my attention like Making Faces did.

 

Now, saving the best for last... Bailey.

 

"... the robbed that smiles steals something from the thief."

Now that was the best, most amazing, inspiring character I've read about in a while. He stole the show. I loved Fern & Ambrose but Bailey was it. He was my man throughout the whole book. His outlook on life, his personality, his essence... it was... I can't even find a word to describe it. And I can never resist a man that makes me laugh *wink*

"I need a twelve pack and some chew," Bailey said seriously. Bob's mouth dropped open slightly, and he shifted his weight uncertainly.
"Um. Okay. Do you have your ID on ya?"
"Yep."
"Okay. Well... what would you like?"
"Starbursts come in packs of twelve don't they? And I prefer to chew Wrigley's. Mint, please."

***

"Do you stand naked in front of the mirror and flex every night? I mean, really, at least go into the adult film industry. At least it won't go completely to waste."

If you haven't added this one yet, I highly suggest you do!

 

"Doubt thou the stars are fire,
Doubt the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love."

 

[REBLOG] What Bullying Really Looks Like

Due to the reblogging thing, I can't tell who wrote this, but damn, it's worth a read. 

 

I hate telling this story. Just the thought of doing so, of exposing my past to even a handful of other people, makes me feel sick to my stomach. But with Goodreads' change in policy occurring and the word "bullying" being slung around so casually, I think it's time.

Willing Victim by Cara McKenna

Well, it’s sad that my departure had to be so soon but it is what it is. Feel free to visit me. You’ll find me resting here:

But hey, I can't complain. I asked for some smuttasticness and Cara McKenna delivered.

 

“Let’s quit our jobs and fuck all day.”

Hell, where's my pen, sounds good to me!

The Tied Man - Tabitha McGowan
... at the end of the day, everything I do cost me. The only question is how much.

 

We have Finn...

 

A nocturnal junkie, scared of needles and scared of the dark. The irony was hilarious.

Lilith...

"I see what I want to see."

And Blaine...

"... his despair arouses her beyond measure."

 

Don't even ask me how I survived this book. It will forever remain a mystery. I'm still sitting in shock at the events that have unfolded in The Tied Man. Let me tell you, this takes the cake for dark & disturbing reads. It makes everything else I've ever read seem like child's play... something I'd find in the Children's Literature section in Barnes & Nobles right next to Harry Potter.

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

 

I was in book heaven all week. Fangirl was an AHHMAAAZINGG story, with the best characters, and the cutest, sweetest, cry-at-nigh-because-I-want-a-romance-like-this romance. There were these small, subtle details that I would skim over in any other book but in this one, it was magic. To me, it's what made this book spectacular.

I'm loving the banter!!

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

'So what'd you write about?'
'A lock,' she said. 'You?'
'Ballpoint pen.' He grimaced. 'I'm worried that everyone is going to do a pen.'
'Don't be,' she said. 'A pen is a terrible idea.'

The BEST of the best!

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

 This is the first time I’ve truly been at a loss for words. What am I supposed to say? How can I do this book justice? Maybe tell you all that it was perfect? The best, most heartbreaking, hilarious book that has touched me like none other? Sure. I mean, it’s been said countless times, in countless reviews, and you know what? They are absolutely, a hundred and fifty percent true. 

 

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars But in ourselves.

Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands)

Club Shadowlands  - Cherise Sinclair
This was like being Alice in a very twisted Wonderland...


Holy hells was that steamy!

If your looking for a short, hot and entertaining read, look no further. Club Shadowlands pulled me in and kept me in a heat-filled daze. The writing was easy, the characters were interesting and this book was a perfect way to take a break from my depressing and masochistic reading.

Rough night, Kitten?

*sigh* I can never resist a man who calls his girl Kitten.
Master Z was one of my favorite characters. He was so sexy and dominant but could be really sweet. And, praise the gods, a man who actually knows what he wants and goes after it. There was none of that "maybe she wants me... no she doesn't... this is only a one time thing... yes... no... maybe" garbage.
Perfect combination if you ask me.

Why the hell couldn't I be the one to have a shitty night and stumble upon his club and gorgeousness?
Master Z


I really liked Jessica. She was sweet and so innocent it was hilarious. She didn't get on my nerves or bore me with her endless insecurities, so that's always a plus.
Jessica


This story was like an easy, pleasurable read without all the unnecessary drama wrapped up in a sexy packaging.

3.5 stars delectable stars
Dusty - YellowBella,  TeamBella23,  YellowGlue Holy hell, this looks one tough read. I'm almost afraid to pick it up. I feel like it's going to destroy me... Just by reading the reviews you can tell how powerful this story is.
