From Goodreads:

Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication.  On camera.  With six hundred men.  Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 500, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room.  This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last.  Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing?  Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?


My first Chuck Palahniuk book.  I discovered i'm not a fan of his writing, I kept on rereading sentences because they didn't roll off my tongue.  I thought I was reading the sentence wrong, it affected the flow for me. I did find it entertaining in a voyeurism way,  a waiting area full of men waiting to take there turn with porn star Cassie Wright is a place I'd find interesting if a fly.  I really loved the ending.

Wait For You
Wait for YouAuthor:  Jennifer L. Armentrout

Rating: 2 Stars

From Goodreads:

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago- an event that forever changed her life.  All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe--please God--make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace.  The one things she didn't need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing...

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a  pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocable stolen from her.  She knows she needs to stay away from him, but  Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and the damn dimple that's just so...so lickable.  Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet...

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she's has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed.  When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar?  And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for....


Wait For You is just a ehhh book for me.  I've felt like i've read this story before,  to be frank every darn new adult book basically has the same theme.  There is always a damaged female and a good looking man-whore and the plots follow the same formula.  It just irritated me after awhile, but I did get through with it.  Not recommended, unless you like this kind of story and can't get enough of it.

I also read and reviewed Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald Review
And I read  Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella.  I will be reviewing this one soon.
