Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Guest Post: Michelle Madow



As I’m sure a lot of you know, the most recent trend in online dating is an app called Tinder. A few months ago, a friend convinced me to give it a try. I did – because why not? It’s free, and since technology is such a big part of our lives in this day and age, online dating has lost a lot of the stigma that it had a few years ago.

For those of you who haven’t heard anything about Tinder, here’s a brief summary about how it works:

You make a brief profile with 1-5 pictures and a few lines about yourself.

It’s connected to Facebook, which creates trust that the people you’re talking to are real.

If you think a person is hot, you swipe right on their picture. If they’re not your type, you swipe left.

A chat box will be available only if both people have swiped right to each other. (This way, you’re not bombarded with messages from people who aren’t your type.)

Once the chat box is available, both people are mutually attracted to each other! Yay! Now … it’s time for the inevitable pick up line. I have gotten a lot of terrible ones. So I hope you enjoy this collection of terrible pick up lines (and my responses) that I received on Tinder!

For the record, I’m not on Tinder right now. Occasionally (once every few weeks), I’ll go on the app hoping for a miracle, but I give up after a few hours, when I receive an onslaught of cheesy pickup lines and am reminded about why I stopped using the app in the first place.


All-access doesn’t mean no problems.

The three Diamond sisters survived the summer in style after coming to live with their long-lost billionaire father. But making a place for themselves at their exclusive new Las Vegas private school is throwing them any number of gold-plated curves. Savannah’s YouTube stardom turns into a Sweet Sixteen reality show extravaganza—with complimentary enemies on the side. Dangerous flirtations don’t keep Peyton from a gamble that will risk far more than she planned to bet. And when Courtney and the sisters’ archenemy, Madison, uncover two explosive secrets, it will rock even this town of glittering illusion—and turn their lives upside down all over again.

Sisterhood, first crushes, and scandalous secrets explode in book two of Michelle Madow’s riveting series, The Secret Diamond Sisters.
