Review: Just One of the Boys by Leah and Kate Rooper

Review: Just One of the Boys by Leah and Kate Rooper

October 13, 2017 Reviews 0

Ok…so here’s the deal. I’m the first one to admit that I don’t like YA contemporary. It’s not my favorite thing to read. HOWEVER every now and then a book crosses my radar that makes me question my dislike. Just One of the Boys by is one of those books. It’s such a fun, cute read. Filled with humor, some steamy/angsty scenes, and a cast of characters that tug your heartstrings, Just One of the Boys is one of my favorite reads this year! Alice Bell, or just Al to her teammates, has moved to the city of Chicago with her mom and twin… Read more »

Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

October 12, 2017 Reviews 2

I really, really wanted to like Nyxia by , but sadly it was not my favorite read this year. I have found that I love the scifi genre this year, especially those that fall into the space opera category. I set my expectations too high for this book. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. On the contrary I did enjoy some parts, other parts not so much. Nyxia by is the first in a new series about a group of teens that are sent to an alien planet to mine an all-purpose mineral. Why send teens? Because the aliens are hostile towards adults but… Read more »

Review: Torment by Scarlett Dawn

Review: Torment by Scarlett Dawn

October 9, 2017 Reviews 0

Torment by is the third novel in the and my favorite couple featured so far. Megan Marshall is first introduced in Poppy’s story. She’s on the run from her father and his criminal activity. She spent her life under his thumb and would rather die than go back to him. After being dragged into something she doesn’t understand (you know the zombie things the Master is controlling), she hopes to never see Poppy and her friends again…and then they show up at the dive bar she works in. Megan is probably my favorite character in the series. She’s blunt and to the… Read more »

Does this book tie into her Grisha trilogy and if so how? I’m dying to get my hands on those books after reading this one 😀 Six of Crows by is the first in a duology set… Read more »

Happy Thursday y’all! Today I’m so excited to be participating in the blog tour for Invictus by . Follow the tour below and be sure to enter the tour-wide giveaway at the bottom of the post. Tour Schedule Invictus by is an amazing read about time traveling thieves. Seriously I don’t even know where to begin! Think of a cross between Doctor Who and Firefly and you have a taste of what Invictus is about. A whole cast of well-fleshed out characters, a red panda (because who doesn’t want one of those cuties?!), a heist on the Titanic while it sinks, and more make this book an unputdownable read!

Release Blitz: The Corner of Forever and Always by Lia Riley

Release Blitz: The Corner of Forever and Always by Lia Riley

September 26, 2017 Reviews 2

Review The Corner of Forever and Always by is the second book in the that follows two sisters and their journey to find themselves and love. I enjoyed this book! I’m a sucker for a small town romance and this is definitely that. Tuesday Knight is a girl from a small town who tried (and failed) to make it big in the city. Now she finds herself a little lost. Everything she dreamed of as a child is so far out of her reach now. She wanted to be a Broadway star, but her naivety and longing for love cost her… Read more »

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

September 18, 2017 Reviews 0

Unlike anything I’ve read before, The Killing Jar by is an interesting, suspenseful read. I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since before it came out and I happened across an audio copy of it. I highly recommend listening to the book as I couldn’t read it fast enough for my liking. The first line of the blurb is the first line of the book. If you skipped that part, go read it now. I’ll wait…..Awesome, right?! So I was hooked from the very first line. Beginning a book like that, you know as the reader that you are in… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! Today’s book is one I read back this spring when I was having all that drama and never got a chance to share with you. I really enjoyed it too! I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded and have purchased the entire series. Viggo and Violet are two very different characters with a common goal: find out the truth. If you enjoy fast-paced dystopia, I highly recommend you read . The Gender Secret by is the second book in series and picks up about one day after the events of the first book. Viggo is in the… Read more »

Review: Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair

Review: Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair

September 14, 2017 Reviews 0

Feels Like the First Time by is the second in the about a small town and second chances. I personally really enjoyed this sweet story about best friends and a pretend relationship. We all know how those end 😉 Ali was my favorite side character in Last Kiss of Summer. She’s an independent woman, tomboyish, and the complete opposite of her former cheerleader- sister. And then there’s the small fact she’s always been in love with her best friend who also happens to be her sister’s ex.  Bradley Hawk *swoon* Hawk is a former NHL player turned bar owner. He… Read more »
