Summary: For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist.

But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. It turns out, though, that Real Max is nothing like Dream Max, and getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.

When their dreams start to bleed dangerously into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?

UPDATE POST | NEW BLOG NAME

second update post in less than a month?? how dare i!

hey, so i’ve been thinking of changing my blog name for a while now, and guess what?? i finally did it!

logo1

i’m now betweenthepages.co! i’m so happy to finally have a bookish name/url, even though i did like my old. i’ve kept my old url so it’ll continue to redirect to this blog if anyone forgets (which i doubt because no one reads my blog, cry)

anyway, i’m more than excited for this new url, hopefully new readers as i’ll post more (i’m so slack, i’m sorry).

and i’m finally reading again! i’d stopped for a but because every book i tried to read i hated! i’m reading dreamology by lucy keating and i’m absolutely enjoying it! (which is weird because it’s a contemporary, and this is the first one i’ve ever read/liked, although i think it has some /urban/ fantasy elements).

also, i’m going to try  this month, the book is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! read more diverse books guys.

Summary: At first, teenager Annabeth Prescott thinks she’s found quite a deal when she talks down the price of an ankh pendant she discovers at a flea market. She soon wonders if the bauble is more than she’s bargained for when she faints and glimpses images from a past life in ancient Egypt.

The discovery coincides with another new find: Gabriel, a handsome young man who takes an interest in her. When she meets his twin brother C. J. at a Halloween party, she realizes they look exactly like two boys who figure prominently into her memories.

Does C. J. share the heroic qualities held by his past incarnation Sethe, her bodyguard when she was Princess Ana? Does Gabriel possess the same evil powers he wielded as Kha, the black sorcerer who sought her affection?

Love meets the supernatural in this gripping young adult paranormal romance. Readers with an interest in reincarnation, as well as ancient Egypt, will be drawn to its mystical mixture of history and hesitation as Annabeth sways between the two brothers.

Will her reincarnated soulmate win out? Or will Kha finally find the way to her heart?

Summary: My name is Theo, and I’m a resident of Oasis, the last habitable area on Earth. It’s meant to be a paradise, a place where we are all content. Vulgarity, violence, insanity, and other ills are but a distant memory, and even death no longer plagues us.

I was once content too, but now I’m different. Now I hear a voice in my head, and she tells me things no imaginary friend should know. Her name is Phoe, and she is my delusion.

Or is she?

Note: This book contains some strong language. We felt it was important for the censorship theme of the novel. If such words offend you, you might not enjoy this book.
