Review: Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths..


Historical fiction, even if it isn’t YA, isn’t one of my favorite genres.  I normally tend to stay away from them, but I just couldn’t stay away from this one.  It wasn’t just the beautiful cover that caught my attention, the unique and summary were to blame for that one.  I loved the world that […]

Book Look: Compulsion by Martina Boone by nereyda1003 Buy Links: *** This book sounds amazing!  My friend Liza just reviewed this and said it was the best book she’s ever read.  I really want to read this one and I’m hoping they release it on audio soon.  This cover is gorgeous, I love the leaves, […]

Review: Even In Paradise by Chelsey Phil..

even in paradise

This book made me feel so many emotions that I’m not entirely sure what to rate it.  Did I enjoy it? Yes, very much.  The story had a very lyrical quality to it that I really liked.  It also had a sort of Gossip Girl vibe that appealed to me.  This isn’t a love story, […]

Top Ten Tuesday (9): Bookish Inspired Co..


I had a review planned for today but I couldn’t pass up today’s Top Ten Tuesday Topic.  Kind of.  Today’s topic is which book character I would like to dress up for Halloween (or some variation of that).  I’m changing it up a bit to show a few Bookish (or movie) inspired DIY Halloween Costumes, […]

Audiobook Review: Made For You by Meliss..

made for you

This was such a pleasant surprise!  I loved the cover of this book and the summary sounded so interesting, but thriller’s are not really my kind of book.  I just couldn’t pass this up when I found out that MacLeod Andrews was narrating this one (I have a crush on his voice!) and especially when […]

Can you believe October is almost over?  I’m getting really excited for Halloween.  For my kids of course.  And for all the candy that I’ll be stealing from them when they go to sleep.  My November TBR is looking pretty small, which I am thankful for.  Hopefully I can catch up on my reading.  And […]

Audiobook Review: Sweet Filthy Morning A..

sweet filthy morning after

It’s so hard to rate this because it’s so short.  At only 30 minutes long, (it’s an audiobook exclusive), it’s hard for me to give it a rating because it’s not a full story.  It’s only a bonus clip of Sweet Filthy Boy from Ansel’s POV.  We don’t really learn nothing new here about that […]

Audiobook Review: Undeclared by Jen Fred..


I really loved books 2 and 3, Unspoken and Unraveled, of the Woodlands series.  I’m such a sucker about stories with military men, which is what hooked me on this series in the first place.  I started the series at book 2 and then went on to read book 3, but I somehow never got […]

Audiobook Review: Sublime by Christina L..


I’m well aware that this is a love story between a ghost and a human, and let’s face it, those never end well.  Anna Dressed in Blood anyone?  I knew going into this book, that this would 99% not end in HEA.  I was expecting that.  I was fine with that.  I was prepared for […]

Review: Stone Cold Touch by JLA!

stone cold touch

Oh man, I read this book back in May and I felt like I just couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I read this in two days and that’s rare for me because I’m not a fast reader, I had a print copy of this and those take me even longer to read, and I […]

Let's-Talk-About button

I really hope this post doesn’t offend anyone, because this isn’t my intention.  It’s really more of a vent.  I’ve been having these thoughts for a while and have been trying to figure out a way to express them.  I started blogging in late 2011 after silently stalking book blogs for more than a year.

I feel like I passed a blog landmark this past week.  After almost 3 years of blogging, I finally got an ARC from Random House!  I’ve gotten a few e-ARC’s from them before (rarely) but never a physical book.  I feel like a real blogger now!  My week was suckish.  My oldest daughter was home […]

Welcome to my stop on the Atlantia blog tour!  Penguin Teen has put together a great tour with blogs representing Team Above and Team Below.  I’m happy to have snagged a spot on Team Above, even though I also fell in love with the world Below that Ally Condie created.  My favorite thing about this book […]

Audiobook Review: Burying Water by K.A. ..

burying water

This book was intense and brutal and beautiful!  You might not think from my rating that this was a DNF for me the first time I tried to read it.  I could blame it on my reading slump at the time or maybe a teensy part of me just wanted to listen to the audiobook […]

Review: Kiss Kill Vanish by Jessica Mart..

First of all, OMG this cover is gorgeous!  I’m so in love with the pretty and vibrant splash of colors set against the black.  The cover and summary of this book, made this one of my most anticipated reads of 2014.  I love books about killers and being ‘on-the run’ and danger and romance and […]

Audiobook Review: Black Ice by Becca Fit..

black ice

Black Ice was one my most anticipated books of 2014.  I love the cover, I love the premise, I wanted to get my hands on it!  When I finally did, I was so nervous to read it.  I was hoping that this wouldn’t be a let down and I put this off.  I’m very glad […]

Excerpt for some awesome finished copies, last week was mostly an audiobook week!  I’ve been having the hardest time reading books lately.  Like physically reading them because I’m able to listen to audiobooks.  I don’t know what it is but it’s taking me a week or longer to get through a book.  Meanwhile, I’ve been […]

Audiobook Review: Falling Into Place by ..

falling into place

This book was so unique, and beautiful and sad and beautiful… and sad.  I don’t handle books about characters dying very well.  Although I did read Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver years ago, I still haven’t read If I Stay or any other book with a similar theme.  I never really had any plans […]

Audiobook Review: Tied by Emma Chase!


Oh this book!  This book was so damn entertaining!  As a big fan of Drew Evans and the Tangled series (and Sebastian York), I knew this book was a must for me.  I love this series, and even though Twisted wasn’t my favorite (I hated that big understanding), I did love the ending of it. […]

Audiobook Review: Kiss of Broken Glass b..

kiss if broken glass

This book was so depressing yet beautiful.  I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the story because on one hand, it was so short, but since it was written in verse it just worked.  I’ve only read a few verse books and they seem to be hit or miss for me.  Sometimes the writing […]

Review: Bully by Penelope Douglas!


Confession time: I never ever planned on reading this book and would think ‘oh hell now!’  How the hell could she possibly fall in love with her bully?  Then I started seeing all the reviews coming in and I admit that I was intrigued, but stubborn might as well be my middle name.  When I […]

October is my favorite month of the year!  I consider it the official start of Fall (for me) and I love Fall.  Give me sweaters and hoodies and warm fuzzy socks and beanies any day over shorts and sundresses.  October is also my 14 year anniversary, my dads birthday, my boyfriends birthday and Halloween.  Lots […]

holy frigging

I had no idea what to expect when I read Tangled last year and I was completely blown away by not only how much I loved the book, but by how unbelievably funny the book was.  Drew Evans is hands down one of the best and most entertaining characters I have ever read!  I loved that the […]

Wow, this book evoked so many emotions out of me that I’m still thinking about it a week after I finished it.  This was a book I wanted to read because I thought it sounded cute.  A girl in the military?  Girl power! But it wasn’t that high on my TBR until the gorgeous finished […]
