KNOCKING THE ARCS OUTTA THE PARK!

Posted July 19, 2015 by Ink Ladies / 11 Comments

I was checking my e-mail and my subscription to Thoughts on Tomes & saw her post of the ARC August. I was all on that. When I first started blogging I was clueless to everything and knew nothing about Netgalley. I had like no followers, so I requested so many books thinking I would only get a select few due to the lack of following I had. Then, I found Christy and was so lucky and got into her blog. Then, I was able to use that info and the approvals when through the roof. So, now I’m stuck with so many old ARCs and this Read-A-Thon is perfect to get those out of the way. If you guys are interested in […]

Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

  This genre isn’t one I normally would pick up, but reading the synopsis had me hooked and I just had to have this book. Plus, the cover was gorgeous and that added even more of a need. Horror movies are my go-to. I just love everything horror, but tend to veer away from horror books because I never knew if my mind could handle it. Me loving horror does not mean I handle it very well. I get scared quite easily and I was hoping this book would do that. And…it did. Throughout this book I got so many goose bumps and was freaked out. That is something I loved about Danielle Vega. I knew that she would have […]

Addicted For Now // Yup, I’m Addicted

Addicted For Now // Yup, I’m Addicted

I think this one may be my favorite in the Addicted series…so far. We get to go so much deeper into Lily and Lo’s addictions and how they came to be. We also get so much more of the secondary characters that I love (CONNOR AND RYKE!!!!). There is also kind of a mystery element to this one with someone threatening to expose Lily and it was killing me to not know who it was. One thing I love about this series is how realistic the characters feel. I know that they are flawed and they have some serious stuff going on, but that’s what it’s like in the ‘real’ world. No one is perfect and we all have secrets […]

I’m FINALLY Finished With Nursing School!

I’m FINALLY Finished With Nursing School!

I’m Done! As some of you may know, I’ve taken a little blogging break for the last couple of weeks to prepare for my exit exam.  This is the exam that I HAD TO pass in order to officially get out of nursing school.  It’s a comprehensive test and a 64% is needed to pass.  I’ve spent the last few weeks studying and I went in yesterday more nervous than I think I’ve ever been in my life.  When I got to the end of the test and I had to hit ‘end test’ to get my results, I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest. But, I hit that button and I almost died when […]
