My 10 Best Reads of 2016

Hello everyone! Lots of things have happened this year. Whether it be good or bad. — I’m not here to talk about what happened this year though. I’m here to talk about books because this book blog is one of my happy places.

Reading wise, there were a lot of firsts for me last year. For instance: I started reading YA Mystery. I don’t typically enjoy mystery. Continue reading

The Devil You Know by Trish Doller | Book Review #155


Eighteen-year-old Arcadia wants adventure. Living in a tiny Florida town with her dad and four-year-old brother, Cadie spends most of her time working, going to school, and taking care of her family. So when she meets two handsome cousins at a campfire party, she finally has a chance for fun. They invite her and friend to join them on a road trip, and it’s just the risk she’s been craving-the opportunity to escape. But what starts out as a fun, sexy journey quickly becomes dangerous when she discovers that one of them is not at all who he claims to be. One of them has deadly intentions. 

Trigger Warning: Murder, Attempted Murder, Kidnapping, Guns & Gun Violence.

The Devil You Know by Trish Doller is a Young Adult Mystery that I found myself quickly absorbed into the book. I found myself enjoying reading from Cadie’s point of view, and getting to know the characters around Cadie. The Devil You Know has only one point of view, and is a fast read with the Hardcover only being less than 250 pages!

I know I borrowed this book because I was interested in how this story would pan out, but prior to actually sitting down and reading The Devil You Know, I re-read the synopsis and actually started to dread reading the book. Continue reading

Library Reads | #17


Hello lovelies! As you can see, I have a Library Reads post for you today! I’ve been trying to put myself on a kind of library ban. I can get books as long as the books are part of a series I’ve started reading, or books that I’ve queued for in the past. — This ban isn’t working though! Which is totally fine, because library books are free for the most part.

Anyway, here are some books that I’ve borrowed from the library! I’m honestly looking forward to reading all of these babies. Continue reading
