    October/Birthday Book Haul:

    This month was magical. I had the best birthday I could ever ask for. I got everything I wanted, plus more. Some of these were paid for by all of the surveys I do online, some were won from giveaways. Some were great bargain deals, a dollar a piece! Others were birthday presents. I wouldn’t be shocked if I don’t do too much book shopping the rest of this year! Just keep in mind, I do not post hauls to brag about what I buy. The books I get hardly ever come out of my own paychecks but from all of the online stuff I do to make money so…

    Review: Whisper To Me by Nick Lake

    Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together.

Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love -love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself- can save you after all. Purchase:…

    Review: Twisted by K.A. Robinson

    Title: TwistedAuthor: K.A. RobinsonPurchase: Amazon ~ Kindle Chloe and Drake have found their happily ever after… Almost. When Chloe’s mother comes back into her life with a bang, it sets off a chain of events no one could have ever expected. Everyone has their demons, and Chloe and Drake’s hit them with a vengeance.

    September Wrap Up:

    September felt like such a busy month! I somehow only managed to read four books, although one of them technically contains three books. So does that count as three instead of one?
