Review: Dead New World by Ryan Hill

I received a copy from author/publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. The following review is my own and will not be affected by this. When I was first approached to review Dead New World, I was immediately drawn to the cover. Isn’t it spooky? It had me wondering just what on earth is going on in this Dead New World. I have to say, I am not a zombie kind of person at all but I went ahead and decided to read a Dead New World just to see if maybe zombies will finally win me over. The New World Dead New World introduces us to a United States after The Tribulation. It doesn’t give much detail as to when or how the Tribulation began because the main characters Ambrose and Holt are young and do not remember a world before the Tribulation.At least that the theory I came […]

Review: Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler

When I saw Crashing Tides available on Netgalley I jumped at the opportunity to review it. I fell in love with Southern Perfection so I wanted to see what Crashing Tides was about if it would blow me away just like Southern Perfection. Our Story Marleigh and GC meet during Spring Break and have a Spring Break Fling. I won’t lie I rolled my eyes at the insta-love but then I stopped because this just wasn’t insta-love it was true love. So anyway, they have the most wonderful week together during Spring Break and make a plan to go to college together and make things work despite the distance. Suddenly Marleigh decides to put an end to their relationship claiming the distance is too much and it would be better to break it off with GC. She breaks GC’s heart completely. He never really gets over her, he just tries […]

Hello April!!

April is my favorite month..okay maybe September and May are too because my kids were born in those months but whatever April is my favorite month ever. It’s my birthday month! I’ve been trying to come up with ideas to celebrate my birthday on my blog I’m not sure what to do yet. I am also excited because When I’m Gone by Abbi Glines will be releasing two days before my birthday! I love my Rosemary beach boys and I absolutely cannot wait to read his story. I finally got around to making my TBR jar..I didn’t realize just how many books I had until I made my jar. I ended up making two jars one for all the books on my kindle and for book challenges I found on Pinterest. So I decided to do something a little different this month. I had my sister pick one book from […]

Review: You Are Mine Janeal Falor

I will be honest; I had to start this book maybe three times to finally get into it. When I was finally able to completely dive into it I just could not put it down. Our story When we first meet Serena (our main character) she is just 17 and is about to be tested to know just how much magic is running through her veins. The more magic running through her veins the better the offer of marriage will be and the more money will be offered to her father for her hand in marriage. As it turns out the magic through Serena’s veins is extremely well and the offers for her hand are large. In Chardonian, women are property. They are to bare children and nothing more, they do not have opinions and they must always obey their master if they do not they will be hexed or […]

Review: Distance by Andrea Heltsley

Distance is a light quick read. I ended up finishing it within a couple hours. You could find me laughing or smiling at my kindle because the situations that Lexi (our main character) founds herself in are embarrassing but they are hilarious. When we first meet Lexi she is waiting for her boyfriend after her high school graduation but he is nowhere to be found. She goes to use the farthest restroom so she can avoid the crowd and what does she find in one of the stalls? Her boyfriend of three years Jameson having sex with Christy (the school slut). Lexi is heartbroken and has sworn off men. The summer before college is for having fun and not having a relationship with anyone. Everything is going according to plan until one night when her best friend Elena and her hit up a summer party. She sees Jameson all over […]

Tiny Bookworm Thursday (1)

When I first started my blog I had intended to showcase everything I was reading at the time, then my son Cristian whose about to be 4 started showing an interest in reading. I would always read to him but he would just ignore me and now he finally sits through stories. So after his sparked interest I decided I wanted to dedicated some of my blog to my reading adventures with my little ones.  My mom use to read to me all the time when I was little and I remember her always sitting on the couch nose deep into a good book. When I first learned to read you could find me sitting next to her reading and to this day you can probably find us sitting next each other reading. She’s what sparked my interest in reading, when I found out I was pregnant I wanted to […]
