Review: Things We Know By Heart

Good evening! I hope you’ve all been having a terrific Thursday! It’s been a little while since my last post, which I am really, really sorry about, but school is starting for me next week and it’s been hectic trying to get everything prepared.
But today I’m back with a review for the third book that I read for #TheReadingQuest, which applied to the prompt of reading a book with a red cover.
I have added another 10XP to my existing 30XP by completing this book, putting me at a total of 40XP! Only 10 more points to go until I reach Level 2!

The book is 304 pages, earning me 30HP to add to my existing 84HP, which means I now have a total of 114HP!

Goodreads Synopsis:
When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.
After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.
Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn’t want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they’re connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.

Review: The Collector (Dante Walker #1)

Hello readers!

Today I have my review for the first book I read for #TheReadingQuest. This book applied to the prompt of reading the first book in a series.

I started off with 10 EXP, and I just added another 10 EXP for completing this book, putting me at a total of 20 EXP, meaning that I am still at Level 1.
I began with 10 HP, and I just gained another 35 HP for reading 352 pages, so I now have a total of 45 HP!


The Collector by Victoria Scott
Series: Dante Walker #1
Genre: Young Adult – Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance
Pages: 352
Publication Date: April 2013
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Read August 2017


Goodreads Synopsis:

He makes good girls…bad.

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.
Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.
Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.
