Author Audit: Katie Alender

While I was at work the other day I was rehashing some of my recent reads in my head. One of the books was by an author that I had read several books by, but I had never heard of her before I found her books. That seems to be a prevalent theme in my… Continue reading Author Audit: Katie Alender

Books to Read in Pairs

When I saw this tag on my reader I thought it said "Books to Read in Paris" and since I didn't see Anna and the French Kiss in the banner I got really offended and clicked on it in my rage. After reading Thrice Read's intro I soon released my mistake and calmed down enough… Continue reading Books to Read in Pairs

June Wrap-Up

So you know that post I made that was all about my June TBR? Yeah, I don't think I followed that very well, surprise, surprise. I have a fallible weakness when it comes to libraries and books that are not on my designated reading list. But it's okay, because while I didn't work on my… Continue reading June Wrap-Up

Review: Flame in the Mist

The Your Favorite Music Tag: Books and Music -> a perfect combination

This tag was created by Debbie from Debbie’s Library and as much as I seem to avoid book tags on my blog I thought this one was pretty cool! While I wasn't tagged I did see that Lia from Lost in a Story (which is who I got the Down the TBR Hole tag from)… Continue reading The Your Favorite Music Tag: Books and Music -> a perfect combination

Book Breakdown

Book Breakdown: Retribution Rails

Goodreads | Amazon I read Vengeance Road roughly a year ago I think, and I really enjoyed it. Something about the Wild West and good-old fashioned shoot em' outs have always appealed to me. So the release of a companion novel set in the same setting/world is exciting. If you're into the aesthetics of the… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Retribution Rails

Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door

  1/5 Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion... she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit — more sparkly, more fun, more wild — the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right… Continue reading Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door

Review: The Sun is Also a Star

5/5 Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away… Continue reading Review: The Sun is Also a Star

Give Me Five Friday: 5 Books to Break Your Heart

My friends tell me I’m a picky reader. Sometimes I’m inclined to agree, but usually I don’t. I read so many books that I enjoy, love, and cherish, but when you read as much as I do eventually you reach a point where it takes an actually good book to earn those 5 star ratings,… Continue reading Give Me Five Friday: 5 Books to Break Your Heart
