I had to really sit down and think about this topic. I tried to stay away from the obvious antagonists since those are usually written to be despised characters (Professor Umbridge I am talking to you). So I tried to think of characters that we were supposed to like that I just didn’t really care […]
(Originally posted by Ashley on Must Love Books) This book really got me, and in more ways than one. I had had a particularly hard week at work- not just regular work stress–I mean contemplating leaving my job after nearly 6 years–stress. When I came home to this book on my doorstep, I burst into tears […]
I really connected with If You Only Knew. No, I haven’t gone through either of these situations, but it’s the core of the story that I connected with. Sometimes life will throw you a curve ball you did not see coming, and it’s so devastating at first that you don’t think you’ll ever get back […]
Anytime this song comes on my radio it’s guaranteed to be stuck in my head from there on out. It’s catchy and I just really like it! Enjoy!
Ruthless is a story about survival. It will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. Ruth Carver wakes up blindfolded, in the bed of a moving truck and has no idea how she got there or where she’s going. When the truck finally stops and her blindfold is removed she […]
This Rains series is made up of three companion novels & one novella; each book follows one of three friends. This second book gives us the story of Emery (Kate’s roommate from book 1) & Drake and is told in alternating POVs between these two main characters as they cross that familiar line from hate […]
This week I’m reading “A Curious Tale of the In-Between” by Lauren DeStefano. I picked up this ARC at B.E.A. this year because I love a good ghost story! This will be my first DeStefano book, though I’ve been told I will love her other books too. So far so good, though the beginning […]

It’s kind of amazing to think that since doing this list back in 2013 (see here), I’ve added TEN more authors to my auto-buy list! I love that! Ok, so this is who made the list this time… 1. Leigh Bardugo 2. Trish Doller 3. Miranda Kenneally 4. Bethany Chase 5. Huntley Fitzpatrick 6. Emery […]
I randomly ran across When It Rains by scrolling on Goodreads and there was just something about the cover that caught my eye! After reading the book description I just knew I had to read it asap! My tbr is pretty long but I moved it to the top of my list and I’m very […]
Here’s the books we’re taking to bed this week… I JUST finished Playing with Trouble, so I’m starting The Boy Most Likely To NOW. I re-read My Life Next Door last month (or the month before… my memory sucks) so Tim is fresh in my mind and I’m really looking forward to his […]
I’m SO excited to have Marie Lu guest post on the blog today! I’m a huge fan of hers and this list was totally entertaining. And SPOT ON. This year, I was lucky enough to be invited to write a short horror story for the anthology Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. Well, I did–and I’m psyched […]
Ok, well this song sounds sweeter than the lyrics actually are. It’s about someone having an affair with a person already in a relationship. It’s about secret stolen moments… but it sure sounds really pretty. Also, the video is all Enjoy!
