March 2018 Wrap Up

Screen Shot 2018-03-26 at 4.25.57 PMHello lovelies! Welcome to another Wrap Up! I guess it’s just that time of the month for this, eh?

Last month was an exceptionally good reading month for me. This month I still managed to read quite a few books. I even wanted to try and read about 5 or 6 ARCs, since last month I read 10(!!). I need want to catch up on them (I have so many *stress-cries*). While I’m glad to say that my feedback ration on Netgalley has gone up, that’s only because the ARC’s that I tried to read just weren’t for me. At all.. Continue reading

July Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1Hello, everyone! Today’s post will be my Wrap-Up for July. July was an especially weird month for me, weather wise. I remember it rained for a little bit here and there. Usually in the summer months it doesn’t rain. At all. Let’s get down to it, shall we?


unnamed-16My TBR for July consisted of 4 books: The first book would be a re-read, and the rest being books I haven’t read before but, they’re part of their own series. The books making my TBR this month were (from left to right): The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (The Ubncemoning of Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin, The Infinite (Gates of Thread and Stone, #2) by Lori M. Lee, Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3) by Sara Raasch, and finally, The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #3) by Erika Johansen. Continue reading

The Pact, by Karina Halle | Book Review #225

Book Review

24155374

*The Pact is a full-length, standalone “friends to lovers” contemporary adult romance*

It all started with a pinky swear…

Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.

Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her.

But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.

Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them were in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounded like fun and games at the time but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.

Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.

The pact is about to change everything.

Note: due to the dirty talk and sexy times, The Pact is not meant for anyone under the age of 18.


I was in need of a different kind of book since I felt like I was falling into a reading slump, so I picked up downloaded The Pact. I’ve read Karina Halle’s work before and have really enjoyed it. I thought The Pact would end up in the “really liked it” category. While that didn’t happen, I did still end up enjoying Stephanie, and Linden’s story! Continue reading

May Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

How was everyone’s May? May is actually one of the busiest months for me. I mean, there’s mothers day, my brother’s wedding anniversary, my dad’s birthday, my parents wedding anniversary, and then my sisters birthday. All in that order, too.

I officially marked A Monster Calls (by Patrick Ness) as a Did Not Finish (DNF). I’ve just lost all interest in the book. Which is slightly upsetting, but I can’t help that I’ve lost interest.

unnamed-26The books I had on my TBR this month were: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver; since I really want to read the book and eventually watch the movie with my mom. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard; I really need to finish re-reading this so I can put the book out of my mind! Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann; I’ve had the book for a while, and every time I look at my shelf my eyes go to Cryer’s Cross. Evermore by Alyson Noël; I’ve been wanting to re-read Evermore for a few years now, so why not!

I’m leaving May, and entering June reading Before I Fall, as well as Evermore. Let’s see what I read this May! Continue reading

Authors I’d Want To Meet | Top 5 Wednesday #14

t5wpic

The original title is “Authors You’d Want TO Meet at Book Expo America & Bookcon” but since I won’t be going to those — probably ever– I’m changing the title, and the post a bit. As you can see, I just changed the title to “Authors I’d Want To Meet.” I find this version of the title to be way more inclusive, because some authors don’t go to these bookish events. So without further ado, and in no particular order, the authors I would like to meet! Continue reading
