Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: Christmas with the Sheriff by Victoria James

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: Christmas with the Sheriff by Victoria James

December 8, 2017 Reviews 2

Christmas with the Sheriff by broke my heart over and over again. Seriously I had to sit it down at one point and have a good cry before I could continue. It’s heart-breaking, romantic, and one of those books you cheer for at the end. Julia Bailey is a character that I truly found myself in. While I’ve never experienced the loss she has in this book, I empathized with her and put myself in her shoes…which explains why the book affected me the way it did. Julia is a strong woman, a young widow who in one night lost everything she… Read more »

Review: The Faithful One by Cami Checketts

Review: The Faithful One by Cami Checketts

I’m a sucker for overly sweet, cliché holiday romance and The Faithful One by is just that. This is the first book I’ve read in the popular series and it won’t be the last. The series follows a group of woman who as girls made a pact to marry billionaires. It was a silly promise that Trin rarely thinks about and when she does, she’s embarrassed to admit it. I like Trin. She works hard for everything she has in life, including keeping her grandparents’ legacy alive, running their Bed and Breakfast, even if she no longer owns it. When the son… Read more »

Review: A Cliché Christmas by Nicole Deese

A Cliché Christmas by is a sweet, heart-warming read set during the middle of the holiday season in a small town in Oregon. I fell in love with this story. I decided to listen to it while doing chores one day and finished it in one sitting. It is that good! Georgia Cole is known as the “Holiday Goddess,” writing screenplays for Hallmark Christmas movies. Seriously I’d love her job 😉 She writes (as the title of the story suggests) screenplays about cliché Christmas themes, making them up as she didn’t experience those growing up. Georgia is a complicated character who… Read more »

Chosen One by is the 6th installment in her massive series and the third for her heroine Caro. This book was lukewarm for me. There were parts I loved, parts I disliked, and parts that were just “meh.” I wanted to love this book because I really like Caro, but there were some issues that I just couldn’t overcome. The Likes: Caro! I really enjoy this character. She is one of those that just faces the world and what it brings her head on and doesn’t care what others might think about her. She’s feisty, courageous, and loyal. Seriously I root… Read more »

Review: Prophecy of Darkness by Michelle Bryan and Michelle Lynn

Review: Prophecy of Darkness by Michelle Bryan and Michelle Lynn

November 20, 2017 Reviews 2

I had the pleasure of beta reading Prophecy of Darkness back in May and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you 😀 Prophecy of Darkness by is an exciting, new fantasy about a land whose magic is gone. Without magic, the kingdom of Dreach-Sciene is dying, nothing grows, famine looms and rebellions are beginning to pop up. Their only hope is a prophecy that talks about the legendary Tri-Gard, reuniting them and bringing magic back to the land. So the beginning of this book has a bit of a slow pace as the authors set the stage and… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! The book I’m sharing with you today came out late last month and somehow I missed the release day 🤦🏼‍♀️I had the opportunity to beta read this book over the Summer and I’ve been dying to share it with you since. If you are a fan of the series, you will be happy with the ending, even if you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the characters. If you haven’t started the series yet, enjoy scifi, alien dystopians, and a little romance, I highly recommend you grab a copy of Broken Skies and start a binge read ASAP!… Read more »

Review: Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram

Review: Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram

November 16, 2017 Reviews 4

Have you ever read a book that just left you smiling at the end? Or a book that you had a goofy grin the entire time reading it? Yeah, that’s pretty much every book for me. This author has a way of writing a story that I immediately fall in love with. Being Jamie Baker is no exception. Until this book, the only stories by I had read were all contemporary romance, both YA and some cleanish new adult. Being Jamie Baker falls in the realm of science fiction (which I make no secret of loving), YA and a little romance. Jamie Baker was… Read more »

November 10, 2017 Reviews 2

Well….I don’t even know where to begin. I was so excited to read Etched in Bone by . I mean seriously guys, I was super excited. I devoured the first part of the series. I loved the off-beat humor, Simon and Meg, the Courtyard….all of it. I had extremely high hopes for the ending of the series, but y’all….it was SO boring! Almost 500 pages and really I can’t tell you what the plot was, it moved so slowly. The premise of Etched in Bone is that the Elders, the big scary Others who even the scary ones living in the Courtyard are scared… Read more »

I am admittedly a huge Jane Austen fan which in turn makes me a big fan of . So far I have enjoyed all of her books! The Austen Escape is no exception. This is a fun, sweet read filled with some of my favorite Austen characters. Mary Davies is a character that is in the midst of a life crisis. Her job is falling apart. Her love life is nonexistent. She’s in a rut, aimless so to say. At her father’s urging, she goes with her childhood friend on an all-expenses paid vacation to a manor house in Bath to live… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! I’m a week late with this post but I wanted to be sure to share my review of the book y’all voted for in October. The Lie by is an intense read, full of surprises and twists I didn’t see coming. Be prepared to not want to sit this book down. This psychological thriller was the perfect read for Halloween. The Lie by has been on my TBR shelf for over a year. I was given an ARC copy before the book came out and unfortunately it got lost in the pile. However when I found it I knew I wanted… Read more »
