Ask Me How I Got Here: Christine Heppermann

Posted by Erica // May 27, 2016 // 7 Comments

This book….was such a disappointment. I thought I was going to enjoy this book so much, sooo much. It sounded like it would be right up my alley. I adore poetry books, but this one just fell completely flat for me. There wasn’t a part in this book I really enjoyed. The beginning was okay. It had me intrigued, but then the story turned and I just wasn’t impressed. I do want to say one thing though, this story had some tough issues that it […]

Hello my fellow bookworms! My friend Lauren from Bookmark Lit and I wanted to come together to create a book tag. We know how much bloggers love binge-watching shows AND reading books, so we combined the two! We’ve selected a TV show to match each prompt and we invite you to change the shows to ones that fit YOU, if you’d like. Then, just choose the best book or series to match it. Also, if some prompts are just about a specific character you can choose […]

Suffer Love: Ashley Herring Blake

Posted by Christy // May 9, 2016 // 5 Comments

Suffer Love is so much more than a love story which is, admittedly, what I was expecting from the cover.  The truth is, this book deals with so much more than romance. When we meet Hadley St. Clair she is in a bad place.  After the way her dad’s affair came to light, I can’t say that I blame her.  I can’t imagine what that would be like and the way that Hadley is coping with it, isn’t healthy.  But she’s a teenage girl and […]

10 YA Characters I’d Like To Revisit in 10 Years

Posted by Christy // May 3, 2016 // 18 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday When I first saw the topic for today’s TTT, I totally read it wrong and was thinking it had to do with children’s books or books I read as a child.  Well, since I didn’t start reading until my 20’s that would’ve been a little difficult.  Thankfully, I went back and reread and realized I was completely crazy and that wasn’t the topic at all. Instead, I’m going to list a few YA characters that I’d like to revisit in 10 years to […]
