Keeping partying!


Breakable by Tammara Webber released yesterday.  I so love this series and I especially LOVE Lucas Maxfield!  So today, I have a SIGNED copy of Easy with the pretty UK cover!



The New York Times bestseller

I took a deep breath and exhaled it slowly before turning around. It was Lucas who stood there. His gaze was penetrating, not wavering for a moment, and my pulse hammered under his silent scrutiny. I couldn't remember the last time I'd been so full of pure, unqualified desire.

Lucas is the stranger who saved Jacqueline from an attack by a fellow student - she'd never noticed him before then, and now he's everywhere. But can Jacqueline trust him - or will the secrets he's hiding come between them?

  2. Yes, if i really love the book at some point i want to read the other character point of view

    ReplyDelete
  3. No, I like to read different point of view and continuation of the story

    ReplyDelete
  4. I do enjoy reading different POVs- I just finished Breakable yesterday and I love it just as much as Easy! There is so much new material in Breakable that it is still a completely new reading experience

  5. depends on if i liked the story; usually i do, but i like multiple pov in one story instead

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yes, especially if I really liked the story :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. i don't really like reading stories with multiple povs ;-; povs from two characters is enough..yea for me lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. if i really love the story why not? i could do it :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes, it's kind of cool getting it from a different perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I usually don't like much reading the same story again, but Breakable was totally different, it was more like a story on its own than simply a sequel to Easy :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. No,one book is enough,it would be great that book to be with Dual POV :)
    Congrats on 1,000000 view! :)
    Thanks for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. It depends. If the second character actually adds something new to the story, then yes. But if it's basically the same story with the pronouns flipped, then I get annoyed.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, especially if I really liked the story :)
    Congrats on 1,000000 view! :)
    Thanks for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. No, I'm not usually in to those types of stories, but I will read one every now and then. Thanks for having the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  15. When I REALLY like a character and I already know the story, then yes. Other then that, no.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Its nice to see things from other peoples POV

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes, but only if I loved the character and time passes in between readings.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If it's done right. I don't want to read the same thing over again but I do like to see the story from the other person's side of things.

    ReplyDelete
  19. only when are my favorite stories haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. When I really love the original I definitely love to read the other person's POV. I really like it when its only a few pivotal scenes and a bunch of new material instead of a retelling.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, I am always fascinated on how the perspective changes. Especially if it is from a guy's POV like Breakable. I don't know why, but I am compelled and drawn to books with the guy as a narrator.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yep, I like because every person thinks, feels and sees different.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I usually like the original better but I do enjoy looking into another character's mind

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yup, I like reading alternating/changing POVs. I can easily follow a story that way.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I do, I love reading from dual perspectives because you really get an insight on how other characters feel through the story.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sometimes, depends on the story but all I've read I do! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do like reading the story from a different characters POV, especially in a love story. If it's told by the girl, especially, it's nice to get a glimpse inside the guys head.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm not a big fan of reading the same story twice from different POV's. I prefer the story told from dual POV's to begin with.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I do like reading the same story from a different POV - sometimes

    ReplyDelete
  30. no, sorry. But if i know ending, usually i don't have mood again to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I do love it, but it depends - beautiful disaster failed at it,

    So the character has to see things differently, and not basically quote what the first pov said on the first book.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes, especially if I really liked the story ..! thank you <3

    ReplyDelete
  33. No, I prefer the book with dual POV from the beginning.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes. I find it pretty exciting to read the same story from a different POV. It's nice to have a look on what's on his/her mind. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. yes, i do like to read the same story from different POV. it's nice to know both characters' brain ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I do like it as long as it is in the same book, but if it is two books but one story like that i don't think so because i would no what was gonna happen. thank you so much

    ReplyDelete
  37. It depends when I really love the book. I would want to read from the other perspective. In this case, I loved Breakable.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yeah!I usually love it!!!And more if it's a love story and is the male's POV!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sometimes I do, if I really wanna see what was on the other person's mind the whole time..

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yep - I do love that - as long as there's a little bit extra-something addes - prologues or epilogues etc :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. No, maybe a snippet or two but not the entire story.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, I do as long as there is a good bit more to the story than what was in the first person's perspective. I like knowing what the other main character is thinking, doing when not around the person who's perspective the story was originally told in.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yes. Especially if I liked the book.

    ReplyDelete
  44. YES! But it can't be all copy paste of course.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Sometime I like to read other POVs in a book, just so I can also see and get the sense of feeling from both sides of each character. At the same time, sometimes I am not sure, because I like that sense of imagining what the other POV would be, and how it would be written AKA daydreaming. Hahahahaha!

    Awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes, I do because it makes the story more real for me.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes!! I love getting both sides even though I already know the outcome!

    ReplyDelete
  48. usually... no. Maybe if it's been a long time since I read the original book. I did enjoy Breakable, but mostly because of the prequel sections...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Not really, only when it's in a same book, not like when they do the same story but in two different books with different POV's

    ReplyDelete
  50. It depends on how the POV is done and if the writing is excellent :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sometimes it can be fun but its still the same story in the end.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Depends on how much I liked the story the original time and if I like the second point of view

    ReplyDelete
  53. yes most especially the multiple POV

    ReplyDelete
  54. I do. Opinions and views vary almost as much s there are people. You ask five people to retell the same story and they will each have a different perspective on it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It depends on the story. I loved it in Elenor and Park, because it truly gave different perspectives on the story, but I have hated it in other books because it seems to drag and repeat the same stuff over and over (like the House of Night series).

    ReplyDelete
  56. If it isn't all exactly the same as from the other person's POV. It needs to have some new insight on things.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love reading from different points of you because you get different thought processes and reasoning behind all the events that took place. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm okay with it, but I like to wait until the details of the first book have faded some from my memory so that I can be like, "Oh yeah, that happened!"

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yes because even if it's the same time frame it's always a different story. You see things that the first character didn't see and you truly get to be inside their head when in the first book you could only guess at what they were thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ok just tried to comment and it disappeared so sorry if my name comes up twice. Yes I love different POVs because even if it's the same time frame of a story you still get so much new material. Characters never think the same or see things the same so it's always fun to be in someone else's head than just always guessing what they are truly thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yes! I really like it cause you have the chance to know what the other character feel or think.. And it helps you to understand it better.

    ReplyDelete

  63. it al depends if I really loved the story and the characters because in that case I wouldn't mind going through that journey all over again.
