I’m Selling My Books!

Posted March 7, 2017 by Erica / 2 Comments

Hey everyone! I’ve made the very hard decision to start selling my books. I really need the money and I just think this is the best decision for myself right now. I wanted to start on the blog to see if it went well and just to sell to you guys, everyone I know. If the books aren’t bought from here then I’ll be moving over to Amazon. Each book will have it’s own price that I’ll mark. I won’t be posting pictures on here because that would just cause for a terribly long post (even though it’ll be one as is), but if you want pictures, just ask, no problem there. Some books I haven’t picked up in ages […]

ARC Review | A Good Idea: Cristina Moracho

ARC Review | A Good Idea: Cristina Moracho

TRIGGER WARNING: DRUG ABUSE/DRUG USE A Good Idea was a decent book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end but it didn’t blow me away. The beginning was, which is odd for me, better than the end. I got into it really quick and wasn’t wanting to put it down, but after I read for a while…I had to stop. It kind of took a weird pace for me and I was just meh about it. I’m not sure if that was actually the books doing or me just being me at this time of my reading slump, but either way, it took a toll on my enjoyment. Now, the pacing was good in the sense of all books ever (if […]

He Will Be My Ruin: K.A. Tucker || My Re-Read Review

He Will Be My Ruin: K.A. Tucker || My Re-Read Review

I don’t re-read often, but when I was asked to review the new paperback I was all for it. Having re-read this book has made me want to start re-reading more. It allows you to catch some things you didn’t necessarily see before and it allows you to feel some things you didn’t feel before. It’s quite awesome. Now, into the actual review of the book. This book, even the second time around, was just as thrilling and mind-blowing as before. Even though I knew what was going to happen I was still captivated from beginning to end. The first time I read this one I was completely wrong with what was going on or who did what. Now, with […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Why You Should Watch My Favorite Show

Posted January 24, 2017 by Erica / 32 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I cannot wait to share with you guys my topic for this week. Thank goodness for freebie topics! This week I’m focusing on the top ten reasons you should watch my favorite show… Erica’s Reasons Reason 1: There really is no explanation needed…two words…Bellamy Blake.  Reason 2: Badass women. The 100 has amazing characters all around (I mean my first reason shows that), but these badass female leads are perfection. Each of them is badass in their own way, but if you want to feel empowered and like you can take on this world. Keep an eye out for all four of these beauties. Reason 3: […]
