{Review+Giveaway} Painting Sky by @Rita_Branches

{Review+Giveaway} Painting Sky by @Rita_Branches

Painting Sky is a new adult contemporary romance standalone from Rita Branches. It is hard to believe that this is Rita’s debut novel because she really captured the essence of the characters so vividly. I didn’t initially know what to think of the story. On one hand, I was immediately drawn into the little bubble that seemed to be created around Keith and Jane every time they came in contact with each other. But on the other hand, I was hoping for something a little more drastic from his brother. I mean yes he was a jerk, but it didn’t seem so clear cut to me. In the end, it didn’t matter because I was completely, head-over-heels in love with Keith and Jane, who seems so much more like a Sky to me. Painting Sky is told entirely from Sky’s point of view, and while I loved watching her sort out her feelings for Keith and come into her own, I really really wanted to hear some snippets from Keith….

{Review+Giveaway} Love, Lies and Spies by @CindyAnstey @Swoonreads

{Review+Giveaway} Love, Lies and Spies by @CindyAnstey @Swoonreads

Swoon Reads has done it again! Love, Lies and Spies is one of my favorite books of 2016. It is a young adult historical romance by Cindy Anstey, and I refuse to believe this is actually Cindy’s debut novel. Young Adult historical is a genre that I don’t read too much of…not because I don’t enjoy it. When it is is well done, I love it. But I am super picky when it comes to the writing and world building in my historical books. And Cindy Anstey has the historical writing IT FACTOR in spades. I felt like I was reading a young adult Oscar Wilde. Love Lies and Spies to me is the modern day Importance of Being Earnest…you know, with spies. If you haven’t read it already, you need to read this book. It is hands, down, one of the best young adult historical romances I have ever read. I loved the Regency wit and charm. Flirting in their flowery way just seems so much more fun to… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Demigods and Monsters by @RayeWagner

{Review+Giveaway} Demigods and Monsters by @RayeWagner

Demigods and Monsters is the second book in the young adult, Sphinx series by Raye Wagner. This is a series that must be read in order, so if you have not read Curse of the Sphinx yet, you need to check that out first. (you can find my review for Curse of the Sphinx HERE). Just like with the first book, in Demigods and Monsters,the mythology nerd in me was totally geeking out the whole time. I really, really love how much classic mythology is woven into the story. Raye Wagner clearly knows what she is talking about. Hope impressed me more in this book than she did in the first book. She is really coming into her own. I didn’t love her in the first book. I found her to be a little wimpy, and too much of a follower. She has proven me wrong. Now that we know a little bit about Apollo’s curse and who the players in the story are, Hope really can dive into the … Read more »

{ARC Review+Interview+Giveaway} Weekend with her Bachelor by @Jeannie_Moon

{ARC Review+Interview+Giveaway} Weekend with her Bachelor by @Jeannie_Moon

Describe Weekend with her Bachelor in a tweet (140 characters or less) Brought together by a winning bid, Gavin & Ally have one weekend to see if old sparks can turn into new flames. What are your favorite kinds of books/tropes to read at the moment? I’m a sucker for second chance romances and give me a good secret baby story, and I’m a happy girl. Tell us something about a character from the book that we wouldn’t have known. The character of Vivi actually based on a real person, and author friend of mine, who is also named Vivi. She talks very fast and likes to keep people organized. What is the most fun part of the writing process for you? I love fleshing out characters. Building them from the ground up and making them breathe. After that I love revising, especially when I have feedback. If we had an author talent show, what would your talent be? I build amazing heroes. I’d totally win the event. Weekend with… Read more »

{ARC Review} Ain’t She Sweet by @MarieForce @BerkleyRomance

{ARC Review} Ain’t She Sweet by @MarieForce @BerkleyRomance

Ain’t She Sweet  is the 6th book in adult contemporary romance series, called the Green Mountain series by Marie Force. While, I have not read any of the previous books in the series, I now have to go back and get my hands on every single one of the first five because this is exactly the kind of series I have been loving lately. The Green Mountain series is about a big family with a ton of siblings. Throw in a meddling father and grandfather who like to do some covert match-making, and you have a great time. I love big family books where each of the installments is focused on a different family member. Aint’ She Sweet is the story of Charley (she’s the family member) and Tyler. Tyler has had a crush on Charley for forever, and she is constantly shooting him down. But Tyler is crazy persistent and he never gives up. I actually really admired that about him, because I sure as heck wouldn’t keep going… Read more »

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

Romancing the Nerd is the second book in the Nerd series by Leah Rae Miller. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, and while the first book looks really cute and has been on my TBR pile since its’ release, I have yet to read it. However, I had no problem jumping right in with this book. I think the connection with the two is Dan. He was a minor secondary character in The Summer I became a Nerd. I loved Dan. I really liked Zelda too, but Dan held a special place in my heart. As is my preference with contemporary romances, Romancing the Nerd is told in dual narrative between Zelda and Dan. This book is cute and really funny read. Zelda and Dan are both nerds at heart, and while Zelda is also a what she would consider a nerd on the outside, Dan is a nerd turned popular jock. They each have had a crush on the other for years, which is adorable…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Crazy Stupid Fauxmance by @shelleeroberts @EntangledTeen

Crazy Stupid Fauxmance is the third book in the Creative HeArts series, and the first book in the Mariely and Cabot trilogy by Shelleeroberts. I have still not read the first book in the series, which is the first book in the Sloane and Tru series, but I have read book 2- How Willa Got Her Groove Back, which was the first book in the Willa and Finn trilogy and I have to say, I freakin love the way this series is done. Let me try and break it down for you, because it can be kind of confusing. The Creative HeArts series is all set at the same performing arts high school in Texas. There will be 9 books in the series, and it will center around 3 different couples. Each of the couples will get their own trilogy, and each trilogy is written by a different author. But the books in the overall Creative HeArts series will rotate through each one of the three couples, so no two… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Player and the Pixie by @LHCosway & Penny Reid @ReidRomance

The Player and the Pixie is the second book in the Rugby by author duo L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid. I am so excited that I read this book. Yes, I loved the first book in the series, but even more so this is my first 5 star book in a while. I have been on a 3.5 star reading kick for about a month now it feels like. It isn’t what I would call a reading slump by any means, because I have actually been reading a ton lately, and I have been enjoying the books, but I just haven’t really been crazy in love, over the top excited about a book for what feels like a while (but in reality might only be a couple of weeks AKA about 20 books ago.) The Player and The Pixie changed all of that! I freakin’ loved this book. We are talking top books of 2016, loved! I liked it more than the first book in the series, which was also… Read more »
