Blog Tour: Picture Perfect (Interview and Review)

clicky here to view full tour schedule!


Picture Perfect
Fashion design major Cat Mitchell has a closet full of gorgeous clothes - and not a single thing fits. After two years of runway modeling for easy cash, an accident shattered her lower leg bone and her self-esteem in just one swift fall. Ten months of no exercise, prescription steroids, comfort eating and yoga pants meant returning to campus as a size twelve instead of her former size two.

When her gorgeous long-time friend with benefits sees her for the first time after her accident and snubs her in front of all her friends, Cat’s self-image hits rock bottom. Her sorority sisters all insist that she looks gorgeous, but all Cat sees is the roll of her stomach when she sits down, or the dimpling at the back of her thighs that wasn't there last year. Cat’s therapist prescribes something radical to stop the downward spiral - nude modeling for a nearby college's human form drawing classes.

When Cat faces her fears and bares it all for the class, she realizes that she's posing naked in front the most gorgeous, buffest guy she's ever seen in her life. He asks her out after the class, and after one steamy night together, Cat's absolutely smitten.

Nate’s pretty close to perfect – he takes Cat rock climbing when he discovers that it makes her feel strong and becomes a great chef after he learns that the perfect pesto sauce makes her swoon. Cat starts to feel like her old self again - confident and beautiful - as long as Nate's around. Even when he discourages her from entering the Real Woman Project, a design competition for plus-sized apparel, she reasons that he's just trying to prevent old body image wounds from splitting wide open again.

But when Cat goes home with Nate for Thanksgiving, she discovers something shocking from his recent past that proves that he hasn’t always been so encouraging of women of all shapes and sizes. Cat has no idea what to think, but she does know one thing - this might destroy their relationship before it's even had a chance to get off the ground.

Before Cat can figure out whether the real Nate is the sensitive, adoring guy she fell in love with, or an undercover asshole, she'll have to finally feel comfortable in her own skin - even if it means leaving him forever.


1.     Welcome to my blog, Alessandra! First, I want to say that I really enjoyed Picture Perfect and am wondering how you got the idea and story for it?

Thank you SO MUCH!!! I’m so delighted to be here, truly.

And OMG, I’m so glad you enjoyed Picture Perfect! I actually got the idea for the story waaaay back in 2009. Glamour magazine ran a short article on how to love  your body, and it was accompanied by a little picture of a nude model looking gorgeous. The incredible thing about this model wasn’t that she was plus sized – which she was – but that she was caught in a candid moment and then – get this – her body was NOT PHOTOSHOPPED. In fact, the photo shows her facing the sun, laughing, and sporting a very noticeable bunch of belly flab and some stretch marks. (The article about her is here: http://www.glamour.com/health-fitness/blogs/vitamin-g/2009/08/on-the-cl-the-picture-you-cant.html) And here’s her picture:


And guess what? She’s totally gorgeous, totally comfortable, and totally proud of how she looks.

It got me wondering whether nude modeling might do a world of good for me and some of my friends who struggled with body image. I never did try it, though. ;)

When I decided to write a New Adult novel, the idea re-hit me like a Mack truck, and I was off!

2.     Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in writing? And why New Adult?

I’ve been dreaming up stories since I was a little kid, but only seriously got into writing when my career got a bit saggy a couple years after grad school. I didn’t have much meaningful work, and I’m the sort of girl who hates to be idle. So I thought I’d tackle the whole novel-writing thing.

I actually drafted Picture Perfect when some friends of mine who work with college students told me that their students were slowly giving up the YA they’d come to adore in high school. I had this story idea, so I thought, why not write it and see if it turns out?


3.     Are you working on other projects/books? Anything you can tell us about them? :)

Right now I’m working on a story called SUBJECT TO CHANGE, which is about Cat’s best friend, Joey. She’s always followed all the rules in life, and dreamed of being a doctor. When her father’s dying wish is that she become a doctor, and creates a trust fund for her premed tuition, that’s the only path she can take. But then, it becomes increasingly clear to her that she’s just not cut out for premed.  What’s worse is that the Professor for the business gen-ed she has to take paired her with Hawk - a tattooed, strung out loser for the huge class project. Even her easy classes won’t be easy.

When they have their first project meeting, though, Joey learns that Hawk isn’t everything he seems. He gives her a ride home in the pouring rain, and with one sexy kiss, shows her that what she always wanted may not be what she’ll always want.  It turns out that Hawk’s much more that a strung out delinquent. He’s comfortable playing by his own rules, but can he teach Joey to make even one decision for herself?

(And, yes, both Cat and Nate will have cameos. I promise.)

4.     How did the book title PICTURE PERFECT came about? Were there any other titles you can share with us, if any?


My good friend and fellow New Adult writer Paisley Grant came up with it. She’s awesome at titles. All I  have to do is send her a blurb and she spits out like five titles and then I pick. I can’t remember the other ones now, but I loved Picture Perfect because it has a double meaning. Someone can BE “picture perfect,” or it could be a directive to someone, daring them to “picture perfect.” And that’s kind of what the story’s about. I love it.

5. And finally, what message would you want readers of PICTURE PERFECT to take away from the story?

Basically, that feeling good about yourself can’t be based on what size you are, what clothes you’re wearing, or anything like that – it all comes down to feeling comfortable in your own skin. And that other people can help you get there, but ultimately, it’s up to you.

And now here's my review of PICTURE PERFECT!


Picture PerfectTitle: Picture Perfect
Author: Alessandra Thomas
Release Date: March 26th 2013
Genres: NA, Contemp, Romance


When I read the summery for Picture Perfect, I just knew I had to read it asap. First, I'm obsessed with NA right now and second, this book is all about positive body image. Which seriously, everyone needs to read about right now. I had such high hopes for this book and it didn't disappoint a bit.
I know this may not seem like a big deal to people but I adored that the main character is a fashion design major! My childhood dream was to become a fashion designer myself and I loved reading about someone who is actually learning to be that. Oh, and I loved how the author incorporated that into the story and how fitting it was. You'll get what I mean when you read it. ;)
Nate is so going up in my book boyfriends list! WOW! He's like, my ideal guy. Even though he's amazing and nearly perfect, I love that he's got some flaws that are really realistic and true to his character. I also loved the mystery aspect of what has happened in his past and how he changed. I thought that wasn't something you'd see in a NA book before and really liked that.
Cat is one of the most likeable characters ever. She's the type of person you'd like as a friend. I honestly don't have anything bad to say about her. You just can't help feeling sorry for what she has been through but at the same time, you love reading about her journey and how she finally accepts her shape and size.
I loved the romance! Hehe. Them together was so hilarious and sweet! Definitely my fave part of the book. The sexual tension was so high!!! Romance peeps are going to love this.
I think every woman should read this, wait, actually no, I think everyone should read this book. You won't be able to get the powerful message inside this book out of your head anytime soon.

Blogging Break and other updates!

Hi Guys!

So, I'll be taking a blogging break. I don't want to make this a long blog post but I just wanted to say that I probably won't be blogging regularly now until June. So that's like what, 3 months? Depending on whether my exams will be finished by then and all that. I planned this blogging break for ages now, at the beginning of this year. I'm just too stressed and have so much stuff to do for school/sixth form.

But I just want to clear up a few things:

- I've signed up for a few blog tours and I STILL intend to take part and post. So for those blog tours that I've accepted, I'm still going to do them.

Here's the list of the blog tours that I'll be taking part in the following weeks/months. (If you think I signed up for a blog tour that's not listed here, feel free to email me.)
Tempted by Trouble - March 22nd
Picture Perfect - March 25th
Broken At Love - April 17th
Against The Wall - April 30th

- There's also some reviews that I've already written but are scheduled to go live the following months. Here's the list:

Dare You To - sometime in April
Prophecy Girl - sometime in April
Second Chance Boyfriend - early April

- Apart from the blog tours and reviews that I need to post, I won't be doing my normal reviews and memes. However, I'm still planning on doing the Wrap Up posts and Books of the Months! I just enjoy doing them too much. :P

- I'm still going to be active both on Twitter and on Goodreads. Just can't stay away from them! So if you need to contact me, you can still contact me on my email, twitter or goodreads. :)

Hmmm. Okay, I think that's all I need to say. Oh, but thank you guys for reading my blog and thank you for all my followers. Hopefully, I can go back to regularly blogging in mid-June because I just miss it too much. :D

Review: Astarte's Wrath - Trisha Wolfe

Astarte's Wrath (Kythan Guardians, #0.5)Title: Astarte's Wrath
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Release Date: March 2nd, 2013
Publisher:  Self-pubbed
Genres: NA
Pages: 215
Source: For review

A tragic love story.

Two thousand years before Dez Harkly developed her secret powers, Guardian Astarte was vowed to protect by the binds enslaving her to the Egyptian pharaohs. Discover the prophecy that originated from a very different time, and spans generations to link two very different girls.

This is the beginning.

Set against the backdrop of the Battle of Actium, in the city of Alexandria, Star struggles with her guardian duties as her feelings for the newly named pharaoh of Egypt grow deeper. Not only is Caesarion her duty, he’s the son of Cleopatra, and he’s human. All of which makes their love forbidden.

But when a conspiracy linked to Caesar creeps into Alexandria, Star must choose between helping her fellow Kythan free themselves of their servitude, and protecting her charge—the last pharaoh—while Egypt burns around her.

I was so impressed by Trisha Wolfe's debut novel Destiny's Fire (came out last year) that I just couldn't miss the oppurtunity to review her latest Astarte's Wrath. You probably don't need me to tell you but I LOVED it. Gosh I actually wish it was longer!

This is actually a prequel of Destiny's Fire and takes place thousands of years ago. I loved reading and finding out about the history of Kythans and Guardians! Trish's storytelling was spot on and I couldn't tear my eyes off the page. I think the only thing not good I have to say about this is that I had a little bit of trouble understanding a lot of information, maybe I was a little bit overwhelmed by all the revelations and such? This didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story but I admit I was a bit lost a couple of times.

Star is such an awesome heroine! She truly made this novel for me. She's touch, she's kick-ass but also she's very vulnerable and to be honest, her life just sucks. But then you couldn't complain when someone called Xarion falls in love with you! I adore Xarion! He'll make you swoon and some of his lines are the best. Be warned though: there is a bit of an insta-love with them, but you can also argue they have been in love with each other for quite some time before the novel starts, just not really acting or acknowledging it before the beginning of the story. I would recommend this to more mature young adults and teens, since there's some scenes that a little bit too..much(?) for your typical YA?

PHOENIX. Now HE was the best. He's my faveeeeee. I love him so much. Nuff said.

There were some fast action and heart-breaking betrayal, and the last few chapters really had my heart going! I was so scared as to what's going to happen and then BAM. That was it. I DIED. I don't really wanna say anything but yeah, something did happen that just BROKE me to pieces. Sobs.

The ending was really bittersweet, I thought. Even though it wasn't the overall ending we're all going to hope for, it's still right and perfect for the story. It made me tear up a little, but also put a stupid smile on my face. So there's that. :)

Review: The Rules For Disappearing - Ashley Elston

The Rules for DisappearingTitle: The Rules For Disappearing
Author: Ashley Elston
Release Date: May 14th, 2013
Publisher:  Disney-Hyperion
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Thriller
Pages: 320

She’s been six different people in six different places: Madeline in Ohio, Isabelle in Missouri, Olivia in Kentucky . . . But now that she’s been transplanted to rural Louisiana, she has decided that this fake identity will be her last.

Witness Protection has taken nearly everything from her. But for now, they’ve given her a new name, Megan Rose Jones, and a horrible hair color. For the past eight months, Meg has begged her father to answer one question: What on earth did he do – or see – that landed them in this god-awful mess? Meg has just about had it with all the Suits’ rules — and her dad’s silence. If he won’t help, it’s time she got some answers for herself.

But Meg isn’t counting on Ethan Landry, an adorable Louisiana farm boy who’s too smart for his own good. He knows Meg is hiding something big. And it just might get both of them killed. As they embark on a perilous journey to free her family once and for all, Meg discovers that there’s only one rule that really matters — survival.

This was the first book I've ever read that's about the Witness Protection Program. I didn't really know a lot about it so I was looking forward to this book and I had very high hopes. But I guess my too high expectations were just tooo high and unforetunately, I was left really unsatisfied and unimpressed.

I had a bit of a problem regarding the characters. Meg really wasn't anything special. She was SO boring! She had no personality whatsover and let me tell you know, I wanted to strangle her younger sister. So spoiled and whiny! Ugh! I didn't connect with ANY of them. Which really sucks since I'm such a characters girl. The characters have to be special for me to even like the book. But nooo. All of them were like watching paint dry.

The love interest was probably the most memorable thing about this book and even he fell a little bit flat. Ethan's an adorable farm boy who kinda reminded me a little bit of Tucker from the Unearthly series. But then we all know nothing can match up to Tucker so yeah. He wasn't really that interesting and definitely won't be going to my Book Boyfriends list.

The plot was achingly slow. Like, really frigging slow. The first half nothing really did happen, it was just Meg being all paranoid and all about how they get settled into their new life. It wasn't until the second half where it all begins. The actions and the secrets all come out. And even then it wasn't enough to save this book. Also, the whole secret was so underwhelming. Really?? THAT IS ALL??

To sum up my feelings on this book: So disappointed. I was expecting a whole lot more from that synopsis, but it didn't give what I was hoping for.

Review: Apollyon - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Apollyon (Covenant, #4)Title: Apollyon (Covenant #4)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date: April 9th 2013
Publisher:  Spencer Hill Press
Genres: YA, Paranormal, Fantasy
Pages: 360
Source: For review (thanks to Spencer Hill Press)

(Pls don't read if you haven't read the first 3 books)
Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.
You know when I said that DEITY was the best Covenant book and I didn't know how anything could top it, well now I'm just eating my words because APOLLYON oh my gosh just pushed DEITY into a faraway place never to be seen again. Ha. But seriously, just when you think something is JLA's best work, another book of hers get released and then THAT becomes her best work. I don't know how she does it but wow I'm so proud of my favourite author. *bows*
I've always been such a fan of Greek Mythology and I love how JLA incorporated that into the story. We see and meet a lot more gods in APOLLYON (YES!) and I hope to see a lot more in the last book! Can't get enough of the gods, yo!
ALEX! I seriously adored Alex in this book. If you've read my past reviews of the first three books, I found Alex a really annoying, indecisive, spoiled brat but in APOLLYON, she matures and makes (usually) the right choices. For me, what she lacked in the previous books totally makes up for in this. She's loyal, snarky, has a really big heart, and selfless. She always thinks of others. Not to mention her narration is frigging hilarious.
WHOA. I need a cold shower after this. The romance between Alex and Aiden really steps up and oh my gosh do we get some sexy scenes!! The Underworld scenes *DIES* Those two are at it like rabbits! LOL not that I was complaining. Anyway, their love for each even grows and just when you think you couldn't fall in love with Aiden a little bit more, you do. I'll be honest here, Aiden has never been my top JLA boy and probably never will be, but now I can see why a LOT of people love him. With APOLLYON, he shows us different sides to him that we don't know and it was just refreshing to see.
We all know I hate Seth, right? Yes I do and I was so goddamn happy when I was reading a book and Seth was barely in it. Like, just a tiny little bit. I know a lot of readers think there's still hope for him and redemption, but to be honest I just want to kick his ass. HATE HIM.
I will cry so much in the last book since I just can't imagine letting go of this cast of characters. Alex, Aiden, Deacon, Luke, Apollo and everyone I just can't bear to not read about them again. I know they're not all going to survive the next book but *sniff* I'm just hoping. I loved reading about them working as a group and like they're a family. And Marcus, I love ya dude!!
Obviously this wouldn't be a JLA novel without non-stop action, suprising twists and secrets. When the enemy was revealed, my mouth was hanging open. I was like WHAAAAA?? How did I not guess that?!? Maybe coz I was so distracted by Aiden but yeah, if you look hard enough, there are some hints but I thought it was all wonderfully done. And there was literally non-stop action, I was so worried for them that my heart was beating so fast haha.
There's so many of my favourite scenes that take place -  where they meet the special someone, the Alex and Ladaan scenes, but the Underworld scenes are probably my favourite one, and I can honestly say this is the best Covenant book so far in my opinion and no doubt that Sentinel will be even better. Jennifer just keeps getting better with each book in the series!
This book will no doubt make you laugh (hey, this is JLA after all), giggle uncontrollably, swoooooon and of course, there are also touching scenes that will make you cry. My favourite author ever Jennifer L. Armentrout is the queen of YA (and NA and Adult) and she is slowly taking over the publishing world. You'd be crazy not to read any of her books. :)

When a chance encounter introduces Ryan to Hadley, will he be like her adoring fans looking for a way in, or will it be Hadley who pursues Ryan even though it might cost her the only career she's ever known.

Lost in You is a story about following your dreams, taking risks and getting lost in love.

Blog Tour: Dear Cassie - Lisa Burstein (Author Interview)

by Lisa Burstein - March 5th2013
from Entangled Teen

Dear Cassie

What if the last place you should fall in love is the first place that you do?

You’d think getting sent to Turning Pines Wilderness Camp for a month-long rehabilitation “retreat” and being forced to re-live it in this journal would be the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.

You’d be wrong.

There’s the reason I was sent to Turning Pines in the first place: I got arrested. On prom night. With my two best friends, who I haven’t talked to since and probably never will again. And then there’s the real reason I was sent here. The thing I can’t talk about with the guy I can’t even think about.

What if the moment you’ve closed yourself off is the moment you start to break open?

But there’s this guy here. Ben. And the more I swear he won’t—he can’t—the deeper under my skin he’s getting. After the thing that happened, I promised I’d never fall for another boy’s lies.

And yet I can’t help but wonder…what if?



Hi Lisa!

1. Dear Cassie is a follow up story from Pretty Amy. How is it different writing Amy's story to Cassie's story?

Cassie is a lot more confident than Amy. She is dealing with demons from her past just like Amy is, but she hides it a lot better, from most people anyway. Dear Cassie was also from page one a romance and Pretty Amy was not.

2. Which story did you find more difficult writing, Cassie's or Amy's? And why?

Hmmm...probably Cassie, because she is so different from who I am and she is dealing with some pretty heavy issues. Even heavier than what Amy dealt with in Pretty Amy if you can believe it.

3. What attributes of Amy and Cassie do you most admire? And what do you not?

Admire: For Amy I would say her humor, for Cassie I would say her toughness.
Don't Admire: For Amy I would say how bad she feels about herself, for Cassie her inability to let go of things.

4. Who's your favorite character that you've written so far and why?

I think Cassie, she is just so fun, in a situation that is anything but. I really love how tough she is on the outside, but how vulnerable she is on the inside.

5. We are loving Pretty Amy, Dear Cassie and The Next Forever and contemporary is my favorite genre,but do you think you'll ever write a paranormal or a fantasy?

I don't know. I don't really have ideas for books in those genres, my mind doesn't really work that way. I am in awe of people who can write amazing paranormal, fantasy or dystopian. I think Suzanne Collins is a goddess.

6. And finally, what comes after Dear Cassie? Next book, new projects you can tell us about?
Well, they are all in proposal right now, so nothing is definite, but I'm hoping Lila will be able to tell her story and I have two other books that may be coming out in the next year, year and 1/2 as well.

Thanks! :)
