You resent her. You can’t stand her. You might even hate her.

But you don’t know her at all.

Hope knows there’s only one thing coming between her and her longtime crush: his girlfriend, Parker. She has to sit on the sidelines and watch as the perfect girl gets the perfect boy . . . because that’s how the universe works, even though it’s so completely wrong. Continue reading


It has been awhile since my last post…

It’s actually been almost a year, and boy what a crazy year it has been! Before I resume posting my reviews again I wanted to apologize for my sudden disappearance. Life got way too busy for a while and I couldn’t keep up with reading and reviewing, but here I am again and I am so ready to get back to it! I’m going to try to post reviews on Saturdays and participate in Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) and Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine). I’ll see you soon!

I have returned!

Hello and welcome!

I’m back after a lengthy hiatus! I was running out of steam a couple months ago and decided to give myself a break to find some more ambition and drive. Needless to say, I have found it! While I have been away from my blog I have gone on a lot of adventures, both physically and mentally. Currently, I’m participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and am failing miserably, partially due to being WAY unprepared. 🙂 Next year I will plan better and actually write a book in the genre I am most comfortable with. (I’ve been trying to write a New Adult Contemporary, and I’m big into YA Fantasy and YA Science Fiction.) I’m already planning and creating an outline for a book idea that came to me via my dreams and am so excited to see where it leads! Well, that’s all the updates I have for now! I’ll have a review coming soon, and couple changes happening to the looks of this blog.

I’m Back!!!

Well Ladies and Gentlemen! Like the title of this post says, I’m back!!! I’m sorry I haven’t been on in a while, my computer broke so I had to wait until I could get another one! I am thrilled to be back! I have so many books to review. 🙂 Plus, I’ve missed you all. Here’s what I’ve been up to during the time I’ve been away!

Where do I start?! On June 11th I drove over to Naperville, IL to Anderson’s for the Boldy Bookish Tour! That was exciting! I love going to book events, I wish there were more around Michigan. I got to see a lot of other bloggers, and of course, four pretty amazing Authors! (Emery Lord, Trisha Doller, Tiffany Schmidt, and A.C. Gaughen) 🙂 I stayed the night in Wisconsin with my amazing friend Emily. Before I started the trek back home, Em showed me around Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie! The Jelly Belly Factory was my favorite. How could it not be?! 😉
DSCN9319Have a great week this week and a safe upcoming Fourth of July. 🙂

Waiting on Wednesday (#14): The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi

Waiting on Wednesday

The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi
Release Date: June 16th, 2015
Genre: YA Contemporary
Goodreads Average Rating: 4.03/5
Publisher: Harper Teen
Pages: 304


Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over a no-good ex-boyfriend. Graduate from high school without any more distractions. Move away from Orlando, Florida, where she’s lived her entire life.

But Matt—the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player who just moved to town—was never part of that plan.

And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying “yes” to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.

Then Matt abruptly left town, and he broke not only Ella’s heart but those of their best friends, too. So when he shows up a year later with a plan of his own—to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn’t sure whether Matt’s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.
