Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall


          Jane, a superstitious fangirl, takes an anonymous babysitting job to avoid an unpaid internship with her college-obsessed mom. The only problem? She's babysitting the siblings of her childhood friend and new crush, Teo.
          Teo doesn't dislike Jane, but his best friend Ravi hates her, and is determined to keep them apart. So Teo's pretty sure his plans for a peaceful summer are shot. His only hope is that his intermittent search for his birth father will finally pan out and he'll find a new, less awkward home. Meanwhile, at Jane's house, her sister Margo wants to come out as bisexual, but she's terrified of how her parents will react.
         In a summer filled with secrets and questions, even Jane's Magic 8 ball can't give them clear answers, but Signs Point to Yes.

My Rate: 3 Stars


         I LOVE contemporary romance's a lot. And that is exactly what this book is, however I felt that this book was not very realistic. For some people it could be, but I did not feel that for a majority of people it was realistic. For that reason I'm giving this three stars.
          When I read a contemporary romance I want to feel like I could be that character. But I didn't feel that I could be Jane. Throughout the book I laughed more than I probably should have and I felt like I understood the characters. To a certain point I felt like I could relate to the Teo, Jane and Ravi as well as Teo's little sisters. BUT it was super cheesy and again certain parts for me were not what I was looking for in that book.
           Overall I enjoyed "Signs Point to Yes" by Sandy Hall. I would recommend that you read this book at least once. I also recommend "A Little Something Different" by Sandy Hall as well. I enjoyed that one more than this one. If you liked "The Fault in Our Stars" you will also enjoy these books. Sandy Hall writes adorable and hilarious books! Try one of her books ASAP! I hope you enjoy them.

Book or Movie?

        Normally I pick book over movie, however I think that it depends on the book and how well the adaptation to screen is done. I think the only movie I might possibly choose over the book is The Fault in Our Stars. I don't know what it is about it that I love, I just do. Maybe Ansel Elgort is the reason I love it so much. I don't know. 
        Anywho, we all know books are awesome. Movies are also amazing in their own way. I think separating the book from the movie helps me to really love the movie. Now I don't love the movies as much as I love the books, but I think they come close. 
        As the internal debate continues let us read on!

Happy Belated Christmas and New Year!!

            Book friends I am sorry to have been gone for so long!! My life has been full of weddings (not mine), babysitting little children, and cramming for my semester finals. All of this is done for now. I am always babysitting, but not so crazy anymore! But enough about me, let's talk books.


            Christmas time is a time for books. I didn't get to read anything over my Christmas break, but I got six books. I finally own all of the Hunger Games books. I have read all three of them and own them all in kindle form. However, now I own them all physically which is better than kindle form.
             The books I received are:
  1.  The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
  3. Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
  4. Matched by Ally Condie
  5. Atlantia by Ally Condie
  6. The first book in the Beyonders series by Brandon Mull

There is another one, but I can't remember it off the top of my head. Anyhow I am excited to take on the challenge of reading the more in one year than I have ever read! May 2016 bring great books into your life and I hope you are able to read as much as possible!!
