*** I’m kind of fascinated with dreams, mostly because I hardly ever remember mine so I never have any cool dream stories. This one sounds fun and different. I hope it’s a good one! What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments

Review: Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curt..

Review: Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curt..

After binge reading the Sins Brothers series by Rebecca Zanetti a few weeks ago, I’ve been on the lookout for more romantic suspense books. Danger + Romance? Does it get any better than that? Dangerous Territory is a novella which kicks off the upcoming Alpha Ops series by Emmy Curtis. I usually am not a […]

Let’s Talk About: Book Series!

How do you feel about book series? Do you love being able to spend so much time with these characters that you’ve grown to love and that you feel like they are a part of you? Or do you just wish that their story would be over already and that the author will write a […]

Stacking the Shelves (114) + Weekly Reca..

One more week until my vacation! I’m leaving this Thursday and it’s crazy to think that when I come back, it will already be September. My kids started asking how many days left until Christmas! I hope to read a few books while I’m away, but realistically, I know I’ll be lucky if I finish […]

Review: Blue By You by Rachel Gibson!

Review: Blue By You by Rachel Gibson!

Truly, Idaho. Boise, Idaho. Lovett, Texas. And most of all, Seattle, home of the Chinooks Hockey Team. These are all that places that Rachel Gibson has made me wish I lived in. She has this ability to really bring the book setting to life and make you feel like you’re in the story. After reading […]

Book Mood Board (1): A Wicked Thing by R..

I’m finally caught up on all my reviews and I want to start doing some more non-review posts. I love doing discussion posts and Book Looks, but Pinterest and Goodreads (and Google) have blocked Polyvore (the program I use) from uploading images. Which is where I used to get most of my images from. I […]

Waiting On Wednesday (118)!

Waiting On Wednesday (118)!

*** I love the sound of this one! The cover is so simple but striking, I like all the chalk writing. Too bad this isn’t out until next June. At least we have a lot of other books to occupy us until then. What are you waiting for this week? Leave me a link in […]

Audiobook Review: Bad For You by Abbi Gl..

Audiobook Review: Bad For You by Abbi Gl..

Before starting my review, I would like to point out that the only reason I got this audiobook was because Sebastian York was narrating this. It’s true audiobook love between him and I and I used to think that I would be able to listen to anything as long as he narrated it. Sadly, this […]

Let’s Talk About: 3 Star Reviews!

Let’s Talk About: 3 Star Reviews!

I’ve noticed (and so have some of my bloggy friends) that 3 star reviews have morphed into something negative. Every time I post a 3 star reviews, or every time I read a review of a book rated 3 stars, I see a comments saying something along the lines of ‘sorry you didn’t like the […]

Stacking he Shelves (113) + Weekly Recap..

I’m trying out my STS posts on Saturdays for a little while to see how I like it. Since I’m not the type of person to set up post ahead of time, I think it would be easier to set up my post Friday nights as opposed to Saturday nights since those are busy days […]

Audiobook Review: Harder by Robin York!

Audiobook Review: Harder by Robin York!

I wasn’t expecting to love Deeper as much as I did, and as soon as I finished it, I immediately started to listen to Harder. I was so captivated by West and Caroline’s complicated relationship and I needed more. This book really did a number on my emotions, and I loved every second of it. […]

Audiobook Review: Deeper by Robin York!

Audiobook Review: Deeper by Robin York!

I’ve been hearing so many great reviews on this book and I’ve had it on my TBR for a few months. The idea of revenge porn is a new subject for me and I was curious as to how the author would pull this off. I wasn’t able to fit this in my ‘reading’ TBR, […]

Review: Before You by Amber Hart!

Review: Before You by Amber Hart!

I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I saw that gorgeous cover! The summary reminded me of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles, which I love. I had high hope for Before You and while I did really enjoyed the story, the little things that bugged me started adding up. Most of the time […]

Top Ten Tuesday (8): New Adult Book Recs..

Top Ten Tuesday (8): New Adult Book Recs..

New Adult books get so much crap from readers, whether people have read them or not. Some people still argue that NA books are just YA with sex or just sex, sex, sex. I hate to admit that some NA books I have read are mostly sex, but I think the problem is that they […]

Blog Tour Review: Ugly Love by Colleen H..

Blog Tour Review: Ugly Love by Colleen H..

 I knew that this book would be different than anything Colleen Hoover has ever written based on the summary. We all know Colleen Hoover can write one hell of a great story, and I love that she can do that without having the story centered about sex. But, this summary tells us about two people […]

Last week was like Christmas in July! Not only did Harper Teen upload a bunch of my highly anticipated 2015 titles, but my Rhapsody account decided to replace all of my 600+ songs in my playlist to Christmas songs. Don’t know what the hell happened. Luckily, it was fixed a few days later. I’m way […]

Audiobook Review: Alienated by Melissa L..

Audiobook Review: Alienated by Melissa L..

I’ve seen so many positive reviews about this book, and the more I would read the summary (or look at the pretty cover), the more I wanted to read it. I was excited to see this available on audiobook and decided to go that route for it. I can definitely see why so many people […]

Audiobook Review: Boomerang!

Audiobook Review: Boomerang!

I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I heard about it. And that was even before I found out it was co-written by Veronica Rossi! Even though I’ve been frustrated with most NA’s lately, I had a feeling that this would be different than most of the cliched stories out there. Boomerang reminded […]

Audiobook Review: Tease by Amanda Maciel..

Audiobook Review: Tease by Amanda Maciel..

Out of the 500+ books I’ve read it the past 5ish years, this is the first time that I don’t want to rate a book. It’s hard to rate a book like this, because, while I think the writing had this hauntingly chilling effect to it, it was a hard book to like. Not because […]

Top Ten Tuesday (7): Authors I Own the M..

I haven’t done one of these in a while (I keep forgetting) but this one sounded too fun to pass up! I’ve decided to only include books that I physically own. Since I have more than 600 physical books in my shelves, it was still hard! I love having print copies but hate reading them […]

Audiobook Review: Silver Shadows by Rich..

Audiobook Review: Silver Shadows by Rich..

It’s so hard to review this book without any spoilers! While this review will be spoiler-free, it will include spoilers from the previous 4 books. Be warned! I’ll admit that the ending in The Fiery Heart was pretty brutal, but it just didn’t hit me that hard. Mostly, because I’ve been expecting it since book […]

August is almost here! Which means our (late) Summer vacation is almost here! Sure, it’s not until the end of August, but we all know how fast the days fly by. This is my oldest daughter’s last week before going back to school (2nd grade) which will be kind of sad not to have her […]

Review: Ruthless People by JJ McAvoy!

Review: Ruthless People by JJ McAvoy!

You see that disclaimer at the bottom of the summary? Well pay attention people because JJ McAvoy is not fucking around! When she says these people are bad, she doesn’t mean they are misunderstood and they do some bad things but they’re good people deep down inside. Fuck no! These people are ruthless and viscous […]

Review: Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGu..

Review: Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGu..

I read this book a few weeks ago and I’ve been debating what the hell I’m gonna rate it from the moment I finished. I’m still completely torn because I really liked most of this book. About 99% of this book was a solid 4 star for me. I had my issues with it, but […]

Audiobook Review: After the End by Amy P..

Audiobook Review: After the End by Amy P..

I have to admit that this book was never on my radar. Sure, I admired the gorgeous cover, but I’m not a big dystopia fan so it was never on my TBR. Until I got a finished copy in the mail. After petting it for a few minutes, I got around to reading the summary […]
