Review * Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry

Review * Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry

December 16, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

What I Thought… • When I found out Echo and Noah were getting another book I was unbelievably excited. Echo and Noah blew me away when I first read Pushing the Limits and I was eager to see what was going on for them now. • There is always a risk reading a sequel to a favorite but I took the plunge. I certainly do not regret reading Breaking the Rules, but sadly it did not blow me away as much as Pushing the Limits did. • I liked finding out a bit more about Noah and the family that… Read more »


Waiting on Wednesday * All Fall Down

Waiting on Wednesday * All Fall Down

December 10, 2014 Waiting on Wednesday 0

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases. Today I’m waiting on All Fall Down by Ally Carter which comes out on January 29, 2015.  Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things: 1. She is not crazy. 2. Her mother was murdered. 3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay. As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei,… Read more »


Review * Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Review * Magnolia by Kristi Cook

December 8, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

What I Thought… • This book was written for me. I kind of feel that the author was reading my mind a bit when she wrote Magnolia. Cook combined two of my favorite things: romance and natural disasters. • Jemma and Ryder’s families have been trying to get them together since forever. Their families have been long time (like civil war long) friends and have been waiting for the perfectly timed boy and girl to officially tie them together. Jemma and Ryder want nothing to do with this. I thought their feud would be a bit different, but I have… Read more »


Review * Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

Review * Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

December 4, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

What I Thought… • Biggest Flirts is my first Jennifer Echols book, but it will most certainly not be my last! • Biggest Flirts fills all my requirements of a good contemporary romance. It’s cute and fun with a bit of seriousness thrown in. • Tia and Will coudln’t be more different. Tia is the partyer who wants zero responsibility for anything. She’s pretty smart but hides it. She throws her drum solo on the first day of band camp just so she isn’t section leader. Tia is a really good friend though and wants what’s good for other people,… Read more »

November In Review

November In Review

December 1, 2014 Month in Review 0

November was a pretty great month. Thanksgiving was awesome. Football was awesome. Book Club was awesome. My reading was pretty awesome as well. I also started using Delicious Library to catalog my books. Delicious Library is incredibly awesome and incredibly scary. I’ve never actually counted my books before. This is a really scary thing to do guys! But it’s great because it really showed me some things and this might just be the thing that helps me buy less books. We’ll see how 2015 goes. Books Read Not too bad for November. My favorite book is a toss up between… Read more »


Review * Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Review * Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

November 27, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★

What I Thought… • Similar to the first book, The Naturals, Killer Instinct runs through like a episode of Criminal Minds. I really enjoyed the mystery and all it’s twists and turns. This particular case reminded me a bit of an old NCIS episode, which is one of my favorites, so I loved the twists. • Even though Cassie is the narrator, Killer Instinct focuses a lot on Dean. The case intertwines with Dean’s father, who is a serial killer. We learn so much more about Dean in this book, and I wish he had been the narrator, I would… Read more »

Review * Snow Falling on Bluegrass by Molly Harper

Review * Snow Falling on Bluegrass by Molly Harper

November 20, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

What I Thought… • I have been waiting for Kelsey’s story. I loved her in My Bluegrass Baby and was disappointed that she wasn’t featured in the second book. It was worth the wait though. • Kelsey has been dating the king of losers for a few years now and after he finally breaks up with her she decides that is enough is enough and she will not take him back. She doesn’t tell anyone this though because she knows that no one likes him and she will probably be told “I told you so.” • Charlie is all sorts… Read more »
