I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

After Math - Denise Grover Swank 4.5 starsTo be quite honest, if I hadn't read Pushing the Limits (which I feel is similar to After Math in the general feel) just before picking this up, I feel pretty certain I would've given this book 5 freakin' stars. But between the two, Pushing the Limits had the edge. However, if you liked one I dare say you'll love the other. The story is told from the eyes of Scarlett Goodwin's. Scarlett strongly reminds me of myself about a year and a half ago; painfully shy, bad with crowds and being in the spotlight. But at the same time, afraid that no one sees her, that's she's invisible. She's also a serious and dedicated student (who actually likes Math), a sweet girl, and a good friend. It was easy to relate to her and feel she was real. Scarlett doesn't date, as everyone know. She also doesn't deal with cocky, disrespecting football stars. Mostly because she's terrified of speaking to them, but still. She doesn't tolerate those kind of things, nor is she impressed by them. But Tucker Price specifically wants her to tutor him on Algebra, and when her teacher comes and asks her to take the job, she has no choice but to agree.Only, from their first meeting Scarlett senses that Tucker isn't who the rumor mill--or even his own past record--says he is. And she'd be right. Because on the inside, Tucker is nothing like he seems outside. He's sensitive, serious, apologetic and mostly - extremely lonely. I simply adored both characters. Tucker is such an awesome person, especially with his sweet, unguarded side. You know, the one he only shows Scarlett ~melt~ And I already mentioned how easy it was to relate to her. The two of them together were quite amazing...To read the rest of the review go to my blog here
