August 2017 Wrap Up

unnamed-20Hello everyone! Today’s post is that of my August 2017 wrap-up. How has your August been? — It’s incredibly hard for me to believe that August has already come and pass. That tomorrow is September.

It’s always hard for me to finish my monthly TBR lists. I usually have at least 6 or 7 books planned out that I want to read. With having only 2 or 3 books on my monthly TBR now, I’ve found that it is much more manageable for me to accomplish the list I’ve made.

My TBR of this month had 3 books on it. The TBR books were: Undead and Unwed (Undead, #1) by MaryJanice Davidson. Then there was Switched (Trylle Trilogy, #1) by Amanda Hocking, and finally, You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner. I managed to read all of this months’ TBR! This is the first (or second, I can’t really remember) time I’ve managed to read what was on my monthly TBR! Continue reading

Sweet and Cute Books Recommendations

BR

Someone recently asked me over on my tumblr, if there were any sweet and cute books that I could recommend them.

I know everyone has their own definition of sweet and cute. Even I have my own definitions of sweet and cute. There’s short and sweet/cute, which are books that I could read within a two-to-three hour time frame. There’s just a regular ol’ short, cute and sweet books that may make you smile so hard your cheeks hurt. There are books that I’ve read that are longer, maybe more in-depth than the ‘norm,’ and there are books I’ve read that can be emotionally crippling, yet when I’ve finished the book, I found it to be incredibly sweet and/or cute.

Like I said: there are many types of short and cute books, and everyone does have their own tastes in books. Here are the books that I’m recommending!: Continue reading

Since You’ve Been Gone, by Morgan Matson | Book Review #234

This is my review of Since You’ve Been Gone from back in 2015. I’ve simply copied and pasted said review into this post. Enjoy!

Book Review

18189606It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um…

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?

My Favourite Summer-y Contemporary Reads

IMG_5643Summer is just around the corner, which means I will be spending a lot more of my time inside avoiding the heat. You can bet that I’ll be having lots of cold drinks, and freezies.

Staying inside just means that I will have more time to read. Now these books are not ones that I’ll read in the summer. These books just remind me of summer since the books take place during summertime.

Here are a few of my favourite summer themed contemporaries! Continue reading

Rainy Day Reads | Top 5 Wednesday #10

t5wpic

This weeks topic for Top 5 Wednesday is about Rainy Day Reads! I’m taking this as books that would be perfect to read on a rainy day. I have no idea about you, but when I read during the day, the atmosphere around me has to match the feel I’m getting from the book I might potentially read. I like to immerse myself in the books I read. Maybe that’s why I often find myself reading at night or in the early mornings when no one would bother me..

So when it’s raining, I like to read a book that will have a warm atmosphere around it. The same goes for generally cold days, or in the winter. Books that would take place in Summer would be perfect! If you want to read a darker book though, say, something creepy, a rainy day would be another great time to read whatever came to your mind! Here are the books that I would recommend: Continue reading
