Goodreads Synopsis: 
If you're looking for:
Found family who always look out for you

A second chance romance with your high school crush

All the fried food that'll take your mind off your troubles

A chance to start over and do things your own way
Then The Unplanned Life of Josie Hale is exactly what you need!

When Josie discovers that she's unexpectedly pregnant with her ex-husband's baby (darn that last attempt to save their marriage), she seeks comfort in deep-fried food at the county fair. There she runs into her two old friends, Ben and Kevin. While sharing their own disappointments with adult life, they devise a plan to move in together and turn their lives around. Soon Ben and Kevin make it their mission to prepare for Josie's baby, not least by making sure Josie always has the food she's craving. Maybe all together they can discover the true meaning of family and second chances in life...
This book is all about chosen families and I can really appreciate that. It was a cute rom-com of sorts about a woman named Josie. She is getting a divorce from her cheating husband but as soon as she leaves him and starts to settle in, she realizes that she is pregnant. Now with no partner, a baby on the way, no job because she moved, and now her parents are downsizing and kicking her out, she is in a pickle. Luckily she is home and she makes contact with some old high school friends who make a pact with her that they are all going to get it together.

This book made for a funny at times read. Kevin, Ben and Josie are great together and their little house is so fun. Overall the story was enjoyable but not super relateable for me. The most impact I got emotionally, was from the mother/daughter interactions. They were properly cringe and I really felt for Josie. The romance was a little far-fetched, high school crush come full circle... while pregnant. So at times the book felt a little dragging. It was cute though and I think it made for a fun read.

If you are looking for a light romance, with no spice, this is a good one to pick up. It became a feel-good, chick-lit feel by the end for me, so if that is to your liking with a little love thrown in, this could be for you.

Building the Book Pie #401

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

Happy Sunday folks! I had to travel for work this past week, we had a blast in New Orleans though. Even though we had a great trip, I am a bit down about what is happening in the country. 

Women's rights shouldn't be moving backwards but here we are. I understand that some, often for religious reasons, don't want abortions to happen, but as a woman that has had to have an "abortion" after a miscarriage I can say that sometimes they are medically necessary. There are a number of other reasons they might be medically necessary as well... I wish I could say that I am sorry to be bringing this up, but if we don't talk about it, it is a bigger issue. Things need to change. My body should be fully MY body regardless of the state I live in and it is scary. 

I hope that you and your loved ones are taking the time you need if this has impacted you. Our mental health is not great as a country already and this is just another burden we have to bear. 

How was your weekend?

Format: Ebook


Goodreads Synopsis: 

Full of thrills and chills, Willow and her summer camp friends have more mysteries to solve in this sequel to the hit graphic novel, Secrets of Camp Whatever! 

When twelve-year-old Willow went to her weird new town's even weirder summer camp, she didn't expect to get caught up in an ancient mystery involving forest-dwelling vampires, living garden gnomes, and other completely bonkers creatures most people would never believe exist. Now she's not only involved, she's marked—too close to the heart of an ages-old quest for power and control than she should be, and too concerned about her new friends and the dangers they face to let them go it alone. With the help of a spell book and her scrappy crew of camp friends, Willow is about to step through a doorway to magic and discovery that will change her world forever.
This is the second installment of Camp Whatever and it was crazy right from the beginning. We meet  up with Willow and her friends back home on in Nowhere for her birthday. Even though they are back, they are still in the thick of supernatural, fantastical things happening and now there is an ancient prophecy that seems to be starting.

I liked this book, it was good. Some of the same notes from my last review apply here as well. The illustration was still vibrant and detailed. There was still a lot of dialogue. The characters are more or less the same with the same issues and struggles and Willow is still a bit rude to people, which is a bit of a turn off. Overall the story was fun, action-packed, and moved quickly. It was an easy read, and kep my attention.

Now maybe this is becuase I am an adult reading it but I had some issues with the plot... (and they might all be made clear later in the series), but it seemed like Mr. Elric set the kids up. He knew about this prophecy, and still gave Willow her great great grandmothers book, which seems to be waht set this all further into motion. I struggle that this is the reason for the book and Elric doesn't full explain the reason for gifting the book. Just things I think about...

This installment was darker than the first and a little more violent, but overall I think Middle Grade readers will enjoy it.

Blog Blast w/ Giveaway! - The Starburt Effect by Kelly Oram

The Starburst Effect by Kelly Oram
Publication date: June 20th 2022
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

About the Book 

Lily Rosemont lives next door to the biggest jerk in high school. Noah Trask has bullied Lily for years, and now he’s ruined her senior year by making her a target and turning the whole school against her. On top of that, her parents are getting divorced, and her world is falling apart around her.

After an accident on the football field leaves Noah with a traumatic brain injury, shattering his life as he knew it and leaving him with a whole heap of new disabilities, he’s no longer at the top of the high school food chain. In fact, he’s right down at the bottom with Lily.

In a cruel twist of fate, if Noah wants to graduate high school on time, he needs Lily’s help to complete a project—a book he wants to write about his experience. Lily’s not sure she can put aside her anger and hate for the boy who destroyed her senior year, but she desperately needs this project to get a scholarship to college.

It doesn’t take long for Lily to realize that the Noah who got injured is not the same Noah who survived the accident. He’s different. Way different. Slowly, Lily softens to this new Noah, but can she find it in her heart to forgive him? Can the two most unlikely people find friendship in adversity and help each other pick up the pieces of their broken lives?

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27405327-pop-manga-coloring-book?from_search=true  https://www.amazon.com/Pop-Manga-Coloring-Book-Beautiful/dp/0399578471?ie=UTF8&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0399578471&linkCode=as2&redirect=true&ref_=x_gr_w_bb&tag=x_gr_w_bb-20

Authors Note: Noah suffers from a Traumatic Brain Injury which effects a lot of his speech abilities. He often mixes up words or can’t get them out correctly. If you see a wrong word in his dialogue, it’s not a typo, I promise. You’ll have to read the book to see how it all comes together!

Noah falls to his bed, lies back, and puts his hands behind his head, looking up at the faded glow-in-the-dark stars that have probably been on his ceiling since he was a little boy. “I like music,” he admits. “Can’t really follow lyrics anymore, but…” He struggles for a moment, then sighs.

“But you can still enjoy the music?” I guess.


There’s a hint of melancholy in his voice that makes me sad. How many things in his life have been affected, or even taken from him, because of his injury? His inability to follow a fast conversation or stay focused for long periods of time must make him miss out on so much.

Wanting to take his mind off of whatever’s got him down, I cross the room and push his arm, forcing him to make room for me on the bed. He scoots over, and it feels natural to lie down beside him as if we’re just two friends hanging out for the millionth time. “What else do you do?” I ask, staring up at the stars with him. “What are your hobbies now, besides listening to awesome music?”

He opens his mouth, then shuts it again. His brow furrows. Whatever he wants to say, he can’t come up with the answer. “I can’t remember the name,” he says with a grunt of frustration.

He leans up and reaches over me to grab a TV remote off his nightstand. My breath catches. I don’t think he meant to practically lay on top of me, but my body seems to come alive from his nearness. And have I mentioned before how good he smells? I need to find out what cologne he uses and then spray my pillow with it or something.

Oblivious to the chaos he’s just put my body through, he sits back, placing his pillow up against the headboard. I sit up with him, attempting to get my heart rate back to normal, while he finds whatever it is he’s looking for. Once the TV and a Netflix menu comes up, things seem to click back in place for Noah. “There it is.” He finds what he’s looking for in his Continue Watching list.

I grin at the show he pulls up. “You watch Bob Ross?”

He acts offended by the teasing tone in my voice. “Bob Rock is cool.”

I hold my hands up. “I don’t disagree. I just didn’t figure you for the type.”

He shrugs. “I like art. Plus, he talks slow enough, and it’s not over…over…”


“Yeah. Doesn’t hurt my head.”

It makes sense. Bob Ross is very slow and soothing. I’m sure it’s one of the few shows he can follow fairly well. He clicks on an episode and leaves the show on mute. For a minute, we watch Bob Ross paint the beginnings of a mountain landscape while The Mad Hatters jam out softly in the room. It’s nice. “You ever painted along with him?” I ask, pointing at the screen. “I’ve always wanted to try it. I bet you could follow along. Or at least you could pause and rewind as much as you needed.”

His eyebrows climb his forehead. He watches the screen, and after a few seconds, nods his head. “Maybe.”

“Could be fun.”

He perks up the tiniest bit, and there’s a touch of excitement in his voice when he says, “Let’s tire it. My mom will get us the…the…” He mimes painting. “She always wants me to try new things.”

“Sounds good. You, me, and Bob Ross.”

Noah nudges my shoulder with his. “Next weekend. It’s a date.”

I smile to myself. Painting with Noah sounds fun. I could play it off as a “friends” thing, but something stops me. Taking a breath, I force myself to take a chance on something that might be strange but could also be amazing. “It’s a date,” I agree.

Secrets of Camp Whatever by Chris Grine 
Series: Camp Whatever Volume 1
Publisher: Oni Press
Publication Date:  January 1, 2021

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27405327-pop-manga-coloring-book?from_search=true  https://www.amazon.com/Pop-Manga-Coloring-Book-Beautiful/dp/0399578471?ie=UTF8&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0399578471&linkCode=as2&redirect=true&ref_=x_gr_w_bb&tag=x_gr_w_bb-20

Format: Ebook


Goodreads Synopsis: 
Perfect for fans of Lumberjanes and Brain Camp, there’s more than mosquitos at Camp Whatever and Willow will need to face truths about herself and her family as summer camp dread goes head to head with the supernatural.

Eleven year-old Willow doesn't want to go to her dad's weird old summer camp any more than she wants her family to move to the weird old town where that camp is located. But her family—and fate itself—seem to have plans of their own. Soon Willow finds herself neck-deep in a confounding mystery involving stolen snacks, suspected vampires, and missing campers, all shrouded in the sinister fog that hides a generation of secrets at Camp ... Whatever it's called. 
What a great start to a middle grade graphic novel series. The Camp Whatever series is about a girl named Willow and her friends and the fantastical creatures and magic they find while at summer camp. In this first installment, Willow is not happy about camp at all becuase she often feels different because she is deaf and wears hearing aids. Once arriving at camp Willow makes some friends and finds out some really cool things about Nowhere, where the camp is located. It is especially cool becuase there are magical creatures hidden everywhere. 

I liked this story, it was fun, action-packed, and had a wonderful fantasy theme. The characters are interesting and the drama and situations the kids are put in are intense but manageable. I always like middle grade in a graphic novel format, but I felt like there was a lot of telling versus showing in this one. Lots of dialogue, which is needed at times, but given the chance to draw things as well, you have more options.  The illustration was super vibrant with bold colors and detailed images. 

At the beginning of the book, it seems like Willows deafness will be a running theme, and while it comes up a few times it is not her whole personality and I appreciate that. I found that at times I resonated more with the other characters like Elric and Violet because sometimes Willow was mean and very quick to jump to conclusions. While she is often right, she comes off as a bit rude at times. While there is probably a reason for that response, the book doesn't really talk about it at all in a way that would make it a productive theme.

Overall, this was a fun start to a series. If you like middle grade and fantasitcal creatures, sometimes a little spooky, this might be for you. I have book 2 so I will post a review on that soon.

Early Reader Review: Silk Hills by Ryan Ferrier and Brian Level

Silk Hills by Ryan Ferrier and Brian Level 
Publisher: Oni Press
Publication Date:  June 14, 2022

Format: ebook


Goodreads Synopsis: 

This atmospheric and stylish mystery set in the Appalachian region is perfect for fans of Twin Peaks, The X-Files, and Sons of the Devil.

When Beth Wills comes to Silk Hills, a small Appalachian town that's seen better days since the mines were abandoned, she expected a bit of culture shock... But not like this! Beth is someone who has a talent for finding people who don't want to be found, and when she's called to Silk Hills by a local titan of industry, she can tell that something's not right. Little does she know...

Silk Hills was once booming, but the only reason people tend to come through town anymore is to buy Mothman merchandise. Before long, Beth finds out just how wrong things can get in the woods, as her search for a missing troubled youth finds her running afoul of the local drug trade, too-friendly creepers, a very sinister deer, and psychoactive moth dust.
I am so confused... that is how this book started and how it ended for me, confusing. I received this book for review from the publisher, which I wholeheartedly appreciate. I was drawn to the interesting cover and a description involving Mothman. I knew it was horror so that I would also be a little weird, but I found the whole book to be off the wall bizarre and not necessarily in a good way. 

The plot had an eerie feel that went well with the genre and the illustration throughout also mimicked that eeriness and had the creepy small town aura. Characters were well recognized but were shaped a bit odd, but it fit the feel of the ebook.  The story itself was where this one lost me. There were rabid/possessed animals, a mothman...kinda, drugs from moths/ hallucinogens, moths in people, and other weird things that happened that at some point probably came together but I didn't understand it enough in the beginning to come full circle with it. I couldn't tell in the end if it was all drug-related, people provoked, or actually supernatural.

If you are looking for bizarre and like the horror genre, this could be for you, but it wasn't really for me. Will it stick with me for a while, probably, so there is something to be said for that. It is memorable in its creepiness, which is what a lot of horror is meant to convey.

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

Hi there! I still can't believe it is June already... and it is already going by so quickly. I am trying to keep up with my reading but am also lacking some motivation. 

And if you know me, that means I signed up to do another thing, this time it is Rec Softball with the town... I am so out of shape but I think it will be fun. I played in High School MANNNNY moons ago. We will see how it goes.

On top of that it is gardening season and the veggies are in full swing.  I have been filming clips to share on YouTube about the garden fails and wins, which has been fun. Here is the most recent with a June video to come on Monday as well:

Recent Reads: Beach Read by Emily Henry

Beach Read by Emily Henry
Publisher: Berkley
Publication Date:  
May 19, 2020 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27405327-pop-manga-coloring-book?from_search=true  https://www.amazon.com/Pop-Manga-Coloring-Book-Beautiful/dp/0399578471?ie=UTF8&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0399578471&linkCode=as2&redirect=true&ref_=x_gr_w_bb&tag=x_gr_w_bb-20

Format: Paperback
Source: Bought/Own


Goodreads Synopsis: 
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They’re polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.
Trigger warnings: Alcohol abuse, Cancer (past), Death of Parents, Cheating (past),  Child abuse and neglect (past), Suicide Cult and Fire, and a lot of Depression and grief.


I picked up Beach Read since I had been seeing it everywhere and I really enjoyed People You Meet on Vacation by the same author. This is a contemporary, hate to love romance with a medium spice level. And while dubbed a "beach read" by the title this book would be a good anywhere read. I did take it to the beach and enjoyed it, but it was not super beach setting focused, which surprised me a little. 

January is a romance writer that has her world rattled when her dad passes away and what she knows of happily ever after changes. Along with her perceptions completely changing, she is suffering from some depression and grief over her father, and she has inherited a home from him that she needs to clean out that is causing more strife. To make matters worse her college rival, Augustus, is living next door. Luckily for them both, they are struggling to write their next books, and both make a deal to write the other's genre for a while. In doing so they spend more time together and hate becomes love slowly. 

This book while cute and romantic, was also a bit dark. It begins with cheating and death and then there is a lot of internal struggles throughout the book as January comes to terms with her father’s secret life and learns more about Gus' childhood and life. The characters where flawed and that is always refreshing in a romance. I want them to be real and these characters seemed like they could be real. While I really enjoyed the characters, the book was a little slow. The midway point was lagging for me but then eventually picked up again, but it could discourage readers. 

This was a great romance though, if you are looking for a contemporary romance where the love interests have to heal, sometimes together, that is what Emily Henry seems to write, and this was a wonderful book focusing on healing as well as love.

About the Book: 
It all s̶t̶a̶r̶t̶e̶d̶ ended with that box…
The year 2000 and Aashi’s life was all set.
New Millennium ,exciting beginnings, new life.
Or so she thought.
Like in the Bollywood films, Ravi would woo her, charm her family and they’d get married and live happily ever after.

But then Aashi found the empty condom box...

Putting her ex-fiancé and her innocence behind her, Aashi embarks upon an enlightening journey, to another country, where vibrant memories are created, and unforgettable friendships forged.

Old images erased, new beginnings to explore.

And how can she forget the handsome stranger she meets?
A stranger who’s hiding something…
Coming Summer 2023 , book 2 in The Rishtay Series 


Source: I receieved this book in exchange for an honest review. This in no way alters my opinion or review.

Aashi's world was just turned upside down after she caught her fiancé cheating, now she embarks on a journey to India to blow off steam and try to find herself along the way.

While the book focuses on Aashi and her relationship, there are a number of other characters and the book alternated between their POVs. It includes Sunny and Bali, Aashi's older brothers, Kiran her best friend, and Arjun a very attractive man that they meet on the plane over to India. It also has some of her father and of Ravi the man that severely disappointed her. 

I had a fun time with this read, although it starts off with a bang and a lot of emotion, the rest of the book is playful and interesting. It follows the family through India and their adventures while there, and gives the reader a bit of India (at least it seems that way to me having never been). At its core this book is a feel-good romance with some whimsical settings. I think that some of the sections probably could have been omitted but I also wanted to know more about the characters. At times I felt like some of them were too one note, and other times they were better developed. 

I enjoyed the romances the built throughout this trip and it was very rom-com-esq. If you like that sort of book, I think this might be for you. However, if you have a trigger over cheating and cheaters, that might be an immediate turn off since the book starts off that way. There is also mention of suicide. 

Overall, I enjoyed the read, I would be interested in another book following some of the other characters as well, they were all a lot of fun to read about.

A bit delayed this week becuase I have been busy catching up at home after my vacation.
