img_0428

Hey everyone and happy Saturday! I am back with another bookish meme! This will be my first Searching Saturday post 😊

Searching Saturday was created by Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books If you didn’t already know, the aim is to search a book (or multiple books) that is new to you and fits the weekly theme. This could be a new book to add to your TBR, or just to address on your blog. It’s up to you! You can search as many as you want.

This week’s topic is Resolution Fulfillers. We have to pick a book or books that fulfill our New Year’s resolution, whatever it may be.  Continue reading

Review – Be With Me by J.Lynn

17558817

Goodreads Description: Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not… Continue reading

Bookish Resolutions 2017

Hey you! * taps on glass* I’ve missed you

Bookish Resolutions 2017

First and foremost, Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year brings you a lot of joy and good health. I know what you’re thinking… and yes I’ve been gone from the blogging scene for a few months but with the coming year I wanted to change that. The last few months of 2016 were really hard for me mentally and it’s been a slow journey. Not posting and interacting with you guys was something that was constantly on the back of my mind and although it made me unhappy to be away, I had to be away to work on myself so that when the time came I could dedicate my time to this blog without being overwhelmed. I really missed this little corner of the internet that I call my own. Having this space where I can express myself and share my opinions is something that I’ve always wanted. So if you’ve read this far, all I can say is thank you.

Okay, so since it is the first of the year/month I figured I’d share some bookish resolutions. I (like many) typically make resolutions but I usually lose sight of them within the first few months of the year but I figured I can at least make attainable ones.

GoodReads reading goal of 50 books – I was so happy ( and shocked tbh) that I reached my goal of 50 books last year. I mean there was a time last year that I was behind. Like really, really behind but I did it. I hope to read a little more this year but my goal is 50.

Read More Chunky Books – I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I’m dead scared of big books. They intimidate the crap out of me. But because of this I feel like I’ve missed out on some great stories. I’ve had the beautiful 20th anniversary collector’s edition of Outlander sitting on my shelves for two years. That’s insane!

Tackle my TBR or Learn to Say Goodbye – I have a huge TBR. It’s completely out of control. This year I really what to tackle some books that I’ve wanted to read for the longest. And as much as I hate to write this, truth is, realistically there are some books on there that I no longer have the pleasure to read. So instead of keeping them forever, I much rather donate them/give them away so that someone else can have the opportunity to enjoy them.

Finish It Already – I’m almost embarrassed to say that I have a problem with finishing a series. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me. Not only finishing but catching out with a series as well. I’m so behind.

Be More Organized – This resolution is most important because it applies to life in general not just books. My thoughts are always all over the place which is one of the reasons why I love blogging, because I can always look back and know exactly what I was thinking about a particular book. I’m definitely going to create a sort of schedule for the blog and try to stick to it. So far, I have a planner and it really helps to have important dates and goals written in.


So, those are my resolutions. I really like the idea of doing updates throughout the year to see how I’m doing so I’ll definitely do that. If you guys have any tips for me please let me know! Again, happy New Year and thank you for reading!

Review – Game On by Michelle Smith

game onGoodreads Book Description:

As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he’s only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.

Bri hasn’t talked to Eric in months—for starters, she’s been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric’s been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it’s a nightmare—Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.

In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody’s perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together. Continue reading
