Bekka’s January 2016 DNFs

Bekka’s January 2016 DNFs

This was the second book I started this year and I was so excited about it.  I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn in 2015 and it gave me a taste for adult thrillers and mysteries and, while I knew it wasn’t going to be the same or even similar, I was just excited to be reading in the genre again. However, nothing panned out for me and I read about a third of this before putting it down. Simply […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Under the Radar

Top Ten Tuesday: Under the Radar

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week is a freebie so we decided to talk about our favorite books that flew Under the Radar bekka’s picks When I first started blogging, I read a ton of books that were underhyped and kind of off the beaten path. Recently, it hasn’t really been the case, though I do like to read under the radar books now and then. Here are my favorites from recent years. […]

Book Review: Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

Book Review: Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

I really wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. It looked like something I’d enjoy just based off the synopsis alone. Add that to the beautifully simplistic cover and I knew I was going to read it as soon as possible. Unfortunately I didn’t get to read it as soon as I was hoping to. When I finally sat down to read this book, it held my interest through most of the book and I read the book in […]

Stacking the Shelves #32

Stacking the Shelves #32

Hi guys! I hope your week was awesome. My week basically centered around reading and avoiding making phone calls. I haaaaate making phone calls. I can’t possibly be the only one right? I made significant progress on my January TBR, so YAY for that. I’ve had a much better reading month than I had last month, so double YAY. As for my mom, we’ve decided to seek a second opinion because her last neurologist was bat-crap crazy and wanted to […]

Book Review: The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

Book Review: The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

Ever read a book that virtually everyone else in the world loved, but you didn’t? I have on multiple occasions and unfortunately The Year We Fell Apart is the latest book that I am a black sheep for. When I first looked at the synopsis, I wasn’t sold on it, but then I started seeing reviews pour in and it looked like a really great contemporary with one of my favorite romance subtypes: second chances. Adding into that, a sick […]

Book Review + Giveaway: Zero Day by Jan Gangsei

Book Review + Giveaway: Zero Day by Jan Gangsei

review I love political thrillers – as far as movies and television shows go. However, I’ve not had as much success when it comes to YA of the same theme. For some reason, it never really works for me. Often it’s because the stakes aren’t high enough, or it just never feels realistic. But I am so, so happy to report that this is absolutely not the case with Zero Day. From the start, it was impossible to stop thinking […]
