Review | Beth Reekles - A Truly Talented Writer


Hey guys so if you follow me on twitter or read my blog regularly then you'll know that recently I've been really into books. Recently I've been really into Beth Reekles books if you don't know who Beth is then here's a little information about her. Beth is from South Wales she started writing on the popular website Wattpad. She is one of the most popular writers on Wattpad having over 81 thousand followers and more views & votes than I can count on each of her novels. When she was 17 Beth was given a three book deal with Random House UK which is incredible in itself as well as doing three A-Levels at the same time!!

Beth is a really nice girl as we've exchanged a few tweets a few times and each time she's been so lovely I'd love to get to meet her one day but I know that she's a very busy person as she's currently studying Physics at the University of Exeter. I'm also probably one of a thousand people who would like to meet her too so the chances of actually meeting her are slim. However I keep my hopes up  as you can't not live life without a few wishes here and there now can you. 

Beth's Links:

The Kissing Booth was the first novel of Beth's that I ever read and let me say when I mean it's probably one of the most exciting books that I have ever read I am not lying. I have probably read it twice now in addition to the first time as I just love it so much. Beth was only fifteen when she first started writing this book over on her Wattpad. It "became the most viewed, most-commented-on teen fiction title on Wattpad in 2012 with over 19 million reads and 40,000 comments"

It's one of those books that you cannot put down I definitely spent a few nights staying up until the early hours of the morning because I could not put it down. If you love teen romance books then you're going to love it. It's also about friendship which I really love to see in books as well as having a friend who is there for you through thick and thin is so important in life. If you get the chance to pick it up in store or online then get it seriously you won't regret it!!

"A cool, sexy YA romance novel from seventeen-year-old Wattpad sensation Beth Reekles.

Meet Rochelle Evans: pretty, popular - and never been kissed.

Meet Noah Flynn: badass, volatile - and a total player.

When Elle decides to run a kissing booth at the school’s Spring Carnival, she locks lips with Noah and her life is turned upside down. 

Her head says to keep away, but her heart wants to draw closer - this romance seems far from fairy tale and headed for heartbreak. But will Elle get her happily ever after?"

Out Of Tune is actually the third book that has been published by Beth it was released last year. However I actually read it after The Kissing Booth instead of reading Rolling Dice first. I can't quite remember how I found out that Beth had released other books in addition to TKB but as soon as I found out I had to pick them up. I think Rolling Dice wasn't in stock which is why I picked this one up first. 

I honestly found this book so gushy and romantic as it was a different take on the girl next door theory. I think that this is personally better than all the other theories. I like how Beth always explores topics which we are used to talking about like friendships, romance, betrayal etc... I think that by reading these books they have made me realise about a lot of things in my own life. I have honestly become so much happier after reading them.

"Ashley Bennett has it all: a hot boyfriend, Josh, a place in the cool clique at high school, straight A grades . . . It's definitely better than when she was invisible, a nobody, ignored by everyone except her best friend Allie. 

Or make that ex-best friend - Allie And Ashley haven't spoken since Josh came into the picture.Enter the new boy next-door, Todd. He's sweet, introspective, and prefers to play his guitar to football. 

As he and Ashley grow closer, she starts to wonder whether she and Josh have enough in common to go the distance. But what will breaking up with him do to her picture-perfect life? Should she follow her head or her heart?"

Rolling Dice is the last book that I read and I actually only finished it a couple of days ago. Although it was the second book that was released by Beth I managed to read it last haha. Rolling Dice was "shortlist for the 2012 Most Popular Teen Fiction Watty Award" which means that it's just as good as the other two books. I again really enjoyed reading this book which is great for me. As I suffer from panic attacks so finding books that I get into are a great way to escape when I'm travelling on the tube. 

I was slightly addicted to this book as I was the others and could not put them down sometimes putting it before my homework & revision which is bad I know. I especially liked how we got to see the typical cliques but from a different perspective if you have read the book then you will know what I'm talking about. There's definitely a roller-coaster throughout the book which takes you on highs and lows but that makes you want to read it more.

"They say that the higher you climb, the harder you fall - and Madison Clarke will do anything to keep her new life from crumbling to pieces. 

Moving from a small town in Maine to Florida, Madison grasps the opportunity to reinvent herself, to forget about those days of being a lonely, loser outcast, and jumps at the chance when the popular kids decide to take her under their wing. 

A hot boyfriend, parties, friends… If only there wasn’t the slight problem by the name of Dwight, a cute, funny and totally nerdy guy in Madison’s physics class who she can’t help but enjoy spending time with. 

Running from her past and stumbling through the present, who knows what lies ahead in this new life in Florida?"
