School started back last week for little man. While I miss having him home, he is enjoying school and I’m enjoying my little bit of free time too 😉 We finished the summer by reading the rest of his online summer reading books AND a couple of Dr. Seuss books. Those he read by himself which was both a sad and proud moment for me. Sad because now he doesn’t want me to read to him and proud because he can do it on his own with a little help. He’s growing up way too fast! Currently Reading Up Next… Read more »

Initial Thoughts Perfectly You by is as perfect as the name suggests. I loved the characters, the sweet romance, the clean-ish YA vibe. I loved it all! Ivy is a character I can get behind. I understood her completely because….well she’s me. Andy is as sweet as he is swoon-worthy. And their friends?! I loved them!!! I loved how well the secondary characters were fleshed out. It was a quick read and one I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys YA contemporary romance. A Fictional Version of Me Ivy is me. Seriously she is! Anyone who knew me in high school that… Read more »

It Happened on Love Street by is the first in her new contemporary romance series . I personally was excited to pick up the book. I love small town contemporaries! When done right, they make for a fun read with quirky, secondary characters and rich town history (even if fictional). doesn’t disappoint in this aspect. The small town feel of is what makes the book such a fun read. And then of course Rhett 😉 Pepper Knight is chasing her dream, pursuing a legal career and the only job available to her is in a small town down south…a big adjustment… Read more »

Review: Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast

Review: Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast

August 14, 2017 Reviews 1

After spending just under a week reading Zero Repeat Forever by , I’m not really sure how I feel about it. My initial reaction was that I loved it, but now that I sit to write the review, I find that maybe I didn’t love it as much as I originally thought. Zero Repeat Forever is told in dual POV and takes place over the course of a year after an alien race seemingly invades Earth and begins wiping out the human population. Honestly this seems right up my alley, but the execution was odd and at times hard to follow. What I Liked… Read more »

Review: Happily Ever After by Kelly Oram

Review: Happily Ever After by Kelly Oram

August 11, 2017 Reviews 0

Happily Ever After by is a perfect follow-up to her Cinder & Ella, picking up about a week later. I’ve read Cinder & Ella more times than I can count and have multiple copies (my original Kindle copy, a paperback copy, even an Audible copy which I highly recommend). Seriously as I write this, I want to go back and read it. Brian and Ella are two of my all-time favorite characters and their relationship is another favorite of mine. Happily Ever After is the sequel I didn’t know I wanted or needed. Cinder & Ella pretty much ends on a high note and suggests… Read more »
