{Trailer Reveal+Giveaway} The Six by Mark Aplert @alpertmark @SourcebooksFire

So I think this is better anyways. But I am always anxiously waiting for it to come out because it looks pretty freakin’ awesome! Book Trailer Reveal!

{Review+Giveaway} Love On The Ledge by Zoraida Cordova @zlikeinzorro @DiversionBooks

{Review+Giveaway} Love On The Ledge by Zoraida Cordova @zlikeinzorro @DiversionBooks

Love on the Ledge is the second book in the new adult contemporary romance series, On the Verge. Each book is a standalone. When I joined the blog tour for Love on the Ledge, I didn’t realize that it was the second book in the series. So I was a little wary, because while I have read series out of order and even skipped books a couple of times (not on purpose!), I do enjoy reading series in order more. But I have to say that Love on the Ledge read fabulously as a standalone book. I was never lost, and everything was fully explained. I didn’t feel like I was being dropped into a world where the background was laid in another book. I can’t wait to read more by Zoraida Cordova. Love on the Ledge takes place in the weeks before a big family wedding. I loved how big of a family this was too. There were tons of cousins all around the same age. I was a… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Captive by Brighton Walsh @WriteAsRain_ @StMartinsPress

{Review+Giveaway} Captive by Brighton Walsh @WriteAsRain_ @StMartinsPress

I absolutely loved Caged in Winter by Brighton Walsh, so when I saw Captive was also by her I knew I had to read it ASAP. I have only read one other book about a girl falling for her captor, and it is a tricky subject for me. It is not something I could initially see myself doing in her situation, so in the past I have been wary of that idea, but I liked the first book I read with this theme. And I have to say Captive was great! I really, really liked it. Brighton Walsh write great characters that lend themselves to excellent romances. Within the first two pages of meeting Madison, I caught myself nodding my head along with her and thought to myself, “yep, been there done that.” (note: I am not talking about the mother incident. I am talking about the getting dressed incident.) And just like that, I could identify with Madison. I know that may seem small, but it is the little… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Paper or Plastic by @ViviBarnes @EntangledTeen

{Review+Giveaway} Paper or Plastic by @ViviBarnes @EntangledTeen

Paper Or plastic is a story about a teenage girl that gets caught shoplifting with her friend and as a punishment, she has to work at the SmartMart, a very uncool store in town, to repay her crime. The whole shoplifting incident happened very early on in the story so some of the details were a blur. But even so, I thought that Paper or Plastic was a very cute and fun fluffy contemporary. Great for a light read. I thought Vivi Barnes did a wonderful job with her characters. Especially considering the fact that initially Alexis and her friends seemed like real brats, it was a big accomplishment to make me like Alexis as much as I did. I am so happy to report that my initial impression of her was incorrect. Of course my impression of some of her “friends” and of her mom wasn’t incorrect at all, but sometimes those “bad” characters can add to a story too. I mean, hey, at least they pull some strong… Read more »

{ARC Review} The Rules According to Gracie by @Stefanie_London @LovestruckEP @entangledpub

{ARC Review} The Rules According to Gracie by @Stefanie_London @LovestruckEP @entangledpub

The Rules According to Gracie is a quick feel good adult contemporary romance book. Just like all the books in Entangled’s lovestruck line, these stories are satisfying “feel good” reads. I normally like to turn to a book like this right after I read a darker or heavier story. It just helps to balance me out and put a smile back on my face. Or heck, sometimes I will grab one of these after a long work day. When you work 12 or 13 hours, sometimes you just want a book that you can knock out in under 2 hours and you know you will get your HEA at the end and everyone will walk away happy. The Rules According to Gracie is just that- a cute read that will get you smiling. Gracie is a successful and independent young woman. She is on track in her professional life, but her dating life if kind of a mess. On the surface she seems to be very in control and type-A… Read more »

{Review} Love Me To Death by Marissa Clarke @MarissaC @EntangledSelect

{Review} Love Me To Death by Marissa Clarke @MarissaC @EntangledSelect

Love me to Death is the first book in the Adult Paranormal Romance Underveil Series. I loved Love Me To Death. It has everything that I want in a paranormal…tons of different creatures living in a well developed and planned out world, with magic thrown in and a kicking romance to boot. What more could a girl want. Plus if the romance has a forbidden aspect to it, that is a total bonus! I became kind of obsessed with this book. It felt like it was a little on the longer end, which is not a bad thing….at all. But I didn’t read it in one sitting. So every time I would have to put it down to tend to real life things, I would watch myself gazing longingly at my kindle, or my thoughts would drift back towards the book while I was at work. Love me To Death was not good for my everyday life concentration, but as a book and as a reader, I love that it… Read more »

{ #Review } The Sea of Tranquility by @KatjaMillay @AtriaBooks

{ #Review } The Sea of Tranquility by @KatjaMillay @AtriaBooks

HOLY SMOKES! What a moving, powerful book. How did this one elude my grasp for so long??  The Sea of Tranquility has been classified both as Young Adult and New Adult. I could see it going either way, but I think it is closer to upper Young Adult. Especially since both of the main characters are in high school. Even though they are each wise beyond their years. I really don’t know how to write a review that does this book justice. I have read a lot of really fantastic books, but the Sea of Tranquility will always stick out in my mind because of how much it moved me. This is a powerful book. It reminded me of the raw emotional power like in the books Lost and Found by Nadia Simonenko. And anyone that knows me, or has read my reviews of those new adult books, know just how high of praise that is. The Sea of Tranquility starts off feeling very mysterious. It took me a couple… Read more »

{ #Review } Diamonds in the Rough by @MichelleMadow

{ #Review } Diamonds in the Rough by @MichelleMadow

Diamonds in the Rough is the perfect follow up to The Secret Diamond Sisters. It is just as gossip girl-y, fun, and scandalous as the first book. I really liked that we got to know each of the sisters a lot better. As well as Madison and the whole cast of secondary characters. Just like the first book, Diamonds in the Rough is told in multiple points of views between the Diamond sisters and Madison. Each of the chapters was clearly labeled and it was really easy follow along. It was cool to read the book this way, because Michelle Madow’s writing style and voice changes with each of the sisters. It added to their very distinct personalities. Madison stereotyped the sisters and dubbed them as follows: Peyton- the slut, Courtney- the goody two shoes and Savannah- the wannabe. And I have to say, at first glance, I can see why she put them in those categories, but throughout the course of the story I watched each of the sisters… Read more »
