This Raging Light / Estelle Laure // Left me raging…

This book was just ugh…I was hoping to fall head over heels for it. I actually DNF’d this at 21%, but then I couldn’t sleep so I just picked it up and finished it. I stayed up all night to finish a book to give it 1.5 stars, what’s wrong with me? I just needed to see how it all finished. If I would have DNF’d it and rated it the book would have gotten 2 stars. So that says something right there. Lucille was just a character that I couldn’t connect with on any kind of level. I sympathized with her and her situation, but that was it. All I got from her was complaints and her lust over […]

Abby and the Cute One // Erin Butler

This is only the second book I have read in The Backstage Pass series and I want to pick up the first three. The last two that I have read, Anya and the Shy Guy and this one, have been FABULOUS. They have both been four stars for me. They are cute stories with wonderful romance-y themes. But enough about the two books I have read, let’s focus on this bad boy…or cute on shall I say. This story was all kind of cute and that fits the main male character quite well. Every bit of this book is miraculous. I mean there were things that I wasn’t overly excited about, but other than that…wonderful. This story was quick to […]

Can this series get any better? // Crown of Midnight

Can this series get any better? // Crown of Midnight

I seriously cannot get enough of this series. So, Crown of Midnight blew me away and I went through this book so quickly. Sarah J. Maas just does something that totally puts you under a spell to where nothing else in the world matters except this book…or the whole series I should say. I got this book from the library and it was so upsetting. I am not one to tab books, but Throne of Glass I was a tabbing fanatic and it sucked cause I had to pull them out when I returned it. So, Crown of Midnight I left alone…but there was so much that I wanted to quote. This book just has so much that sticks out. […]

Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts

ERICA’S REVIEW Another Entangled Crush book off my check list! Another book that I did really enjoy. Yes, I really enjoyed it and my 3 star rating may not show that, but when it comes to these Entangled Crush novels I get a little picky and what-not! This wasn’t one of my favorites, but like I said above, it was a good read. Like all Entangled Crush books the romance was wonderful, but with this one it was slow. But, not in a bad way. There was no insta-love and it was the romance was built so perfectly. At first there was even a little bit of love/hate situation going on and that was awesome. I love that whole idea. […]

Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

ERICA’S REVIEW Lately I have fallen in love with all of the Entangled Teen books. They have been absolutely amazing and this one was no different. Blackmail Boyfriend was absolutely incredible and I am so happy to have read it. Recommendations all around, especially if you want a quick, happy, and light read. Haley Patterson is a wonderful student, pretty but stuck in the crowd, crushing but from afar…until one day. A rumor is going around school and she takes full advantage of it. She has two brothers her are always on her case when it comes to boys, but when this rumor comes out its her chance to quite them. Bryce is the boy she has been crushing on […]

Forever For a Year Blog Tour | Interview & Giveaway!

Interview with B.T. Gottfred 1. Can you tell readers a little bit about Forever for a Year? Carolina and Trevor meet on the first day of high school and it’s an almost cosmic connection from the start. The book is told in alternating her/him chapters as they go on the mad, magical roller coaster that is first love.  2. What inspired you to write Forever for a Year? I was drawn to young adult novels because of the purity of emotion teenagers have. Adults feel all the same things, we just like to pretend we don’t by hiding beyond layers of rationalized repression. As for why this book exactly? Basically Carolina and Trevor got inside my head and they wouldn’t […]

Emmy & Oliver | IS AMAZING

Review I was kind of hesitant to read this book at first.  Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.  Maybe because there is already some hype surrounding it.  Whatever the reason, I almost missed this incredible story and I’m so glad that I decided to give it a try. When Emmy and Oliver were 7 years old, Oliver goes with his dad after school one day to spend the weekend, and he never comes back.  Well, at least for 10 years. Fast forward 10 years and Oliver is back in Emmy’s life and Emmy is having a hard time trying to figure out what to say or do.  I mean, what do you say to someone who’s dad kidnapped them […]

The Night We Said Yes // Lauren Gibaldi

My Review Like the first sentence of the synopsis…this book is an absolute fun, light  and romantic read. Romance/Contemporary novels are my absolute go-to so when I read the synopsis to this book I just had to pick it up. I have been having a really hard time getting into books lately…a reading slump, which has been so very horrible. So, just like the other books recently, this book was no different. I had a hard time getting into it, but that was more with me than the book. After I pushed through my slump, I greatly enjoyed this book. This was perfect for one of my first summer reads. The use of then and now in this book was […]
