2012 review

2012 has been a strange year for me personally with circumstances leaving me housebound  with a broken leg for the last 4 months of the year. However this has left me with an insane amount of reading time which is going to make writing this following post hard to do as I have so many books to pick between! The blog A year of insane amounts of reading has meant I've had a chance to reorganise myself somewhat mainly because I have pretty much wiped out my TBR pile entirely. This has been brilliant because it has given me the chance to read loads of 2013 books and have a lot more flexibility about what I read and when without the pressure of release deadlines! before I move onto the books just a quick thank you to all the wonderful bloggers who make this insane habit of mine brilliant each and everyday. I love you all to bits but a few of you deserve a special mention or two - Sarah for putting up with my random text questions, for letting me crash at your house, for looking

Review: None of the regular rules by Erin Downing

Sometimes, a few dares can change lives… The weekend before the start of senior year, Sophie Erickson and her best friends, Ella and Grace, discover a handwritten list of dares tucked away in the glove compartment of Sophie’s beat-up old Toyota. But this isn’t just any list; it’s a dead girl's bucket list. Sophie's beloved aunt Suzy died as a teenager in a fatal fall, leaving Sophie with an overly cautious family, a few fading photographs, and a bucket of bolts that barely passes for a car. But now, Sophie has Suzy’s list of the things she wanted to do in her last year of high school. Sophie can't help but wonder: What would happen if she tried to fulfill Suzy’s last wishes, to live out the longed-for life of her aunt, her hero? As Sophie and her friends attempt to knock off the things on Suzy's list of dares, love blossoms in unexpected places and Sophie begins to feel that her life is finally coming together...when in fact, everything is slowly unrav

Review: The Vincent boys by Abbi Glines

Beau Vincent is rude, bad, and dangerous to know. So why can't good girl Ashton Gray keep away from him? She already has the perfect boyfriend - her town's local Prince Charming, Sawyer Vincent. But Sawyer is away for the summer, and in the meantime Ashton is bored, and the heat between her and Beau is undeniable - as well as irresistible. Ashton is about to unleash her bad girl - but what will she do when Sawyer comes home? And how will Sawyer react when he returns to find his girlfriend in the arms of his best friend - and cousin? The Vincent Boys is a sexy, exciting and enjoyable romp through one steamy Alabama summer My thoughts  I needed this book the weekend I read it. Of late I have been struggling to read. I need something light and engaging which would get me back into reading compulsively and this book did it for me. The story revolves around the love triangle that is Ash

Review: Losing it by Cora Carmack

Virginity. Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier. My thoughts I really enjoyed Losing it. A nice offering in the New Adult genre. Losing it is the story of Bliss. Bliss is about to graduate from college and is worried because she she is still a virgin. Her friend decides to help her change this by taking her out to meet a man. They both get dressed up and head out to a club

Bookcase Showcase: Kat from Simon and Schuster

Let me preface this piece by saying that if I lived on my own, or in a giant house that was all mine, I would have a wall - nay, a ROOM - of books, all together and in perfect order. Sadly, I share a flat with three other lovely girls and therefore my books are unable to line up all together in harmony. Hence why exploring my bookshelves take a few photos, for which I apologise! The one lovely, lovely thing about working in publishing is of course that I get to play with books all day. It's not quite as simple as that, but essentially my working day is books, books and more books. So it's unsurprising that I've grown quite a collection over the years, not to mention my time as a bookseller before. There are also a lot of books living in my mum's house, all alone :(   One day they will live in my dream library of Beauty and the Beast proportions. But until now, I do my best to make sure they all feel loved in equal measure. This first shelf of books
