Bright Side by Kim Holden

Bright Side by Kim Holden

Once upon a time, I fell in love with Colleen Hoover’s writing. Then one day, she posted about a book called Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher. I fell in love again. So when Colleen posted about Bright Side by Kim Holden, I didn’t hesitate and bought the book without even fully seeing what it’s about. […]

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

Oh, you guys! This book! Wow, okay, so Burn for Me is the first book in a new series by Ilona Andrews. Boy, did it ever friggin’ rock. Very rarely does the first book in the UF genre impress me so much. It usually take 2-3 installments to earn my undying devotion. I am already […]

Harder by Robin York

Harder by Robin York

I was so excited to read Harder! I loved Deeper a lot, and couldn’t wait to continue Caroline and West’s story. Especially after that ending. Did the author pull through with Harder? Hell yes! West is back in Oregon dealing with an awful family situation and is prepared to forgo his dreams of bettering his […]

Sunday Post #101 (10/26/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Noooo, no, no …. only one more week left in October. This is unacceptable! We’ve started doing college stuff for my son and I’m trying not to freak out. A couple of cross country scouts from nearby colleges came to watch him run and talk […]

Thief by Tarryn Fisher

Thief by Tarryn Fisher

And there it is. The end. It’s over. Insert sad face here. Thankfully, Thief was an absolutely, wonderful ending to the trilogy. As if I had any doubt. Seriously, it’s almost disturbing how much I love these books. This time around, the story continues from Caleb’s perspective. Honestly, this guy was riding a thin line […]

Her Perfect Game by Shannyn Schroeder

Her Perfect Game by Shannyn Schroeder

So, when I got Her Perfect Game, I didn’t realize it was the second book in the Hot & Nerdy trilogy until I was about to read it. I almost had a meltdown! You wouldn’t believe the angst I went through while trying to decide if I should just read it anyway, without reading Her […]

Someday Maybe by Ophelia London

Someday Maybe by Ophelia London

Last year Ophelia London gave us Definitely, Maybe in Love, a modern take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I loved it! This time, she takes on Persuasion in Someday Maybe. While I didn’t love it as much as the first book, I still liked it a lot. Rachel and Oliver fell in love during […]

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

What. The. Hell. Seriously. Now, this is good horror! Bird Box managed to give me those intense creepy feelings that I crave, yet rarely get. I loved it! I went into this book pretty much blind, which made the experience even better. Don’t open your eyes. If you see it, you’ll go crazy and kill […]

Sunday Post #100 (10/19/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Well, it’s starting to cool off to the 80s here. Unfortunately. It’s still dry as hell, and I know we need rain and snow bad, but I’m never ready to let go of the hot weather. The drought continues, and it’s especially harsh here in […]
