First off, welcome to almost 1,000 new followers!!! 🙂

This week, I am purposefully not doing a full reading schedule! Recently, I’ve been feeling like I’m such a slave to it, that I feel like changing it up! I have a general set of books I know I need to get through, but I’m going to choose as I go! I do know I plan to read Dark Fever next and I also hope to read The Fault In Our Starsfinally!

BOOK BUZZ:

This book has some major buzz right now! I’ve never read any of Tijan’s book, but with all the talk, I think I might start with this one!

Emma decided to skip the gym and went home early. It was the last easy decision she made because she found her roommate being raped by the boyfriend. She had two choices. Call the cops and be killed by his family’s mafia connections or kill him first and hope to survive. There was no choice to her. She killed the bastard first and went to the one person who could protect her. Carter Reed. He’s a weapon for the rivaling mafia family, but he’s also Emma’s secret. Not only was he best friends with her brother, but she’s the reason he became that weapon in the first place. 

This book is not for the faint of heart.

You may have noticed I haven’t been online as much lately… I’ve been super busy with some new things in the works including getting a new website launched very, very soon! Stay tuned! Lots of new features for you that I think you guys will love! And it’s real, real PURRRRTY!!! 🙂

Also, I’m currently lucky enough to be reading an ARC of Convicted by Aleatha Romig… I only mention it because I recommend you all brush up on Truth, book 2… I would try and re-read that book. It will be really helpful! But let me tell you… this book is DAMN GOOD!!! This is a 6-star series for me!
(Buy: Consequences | Truth)

MUST READ OF THE WEEK:

This week, I’ve got to recommend both the Take This Regret series by A.L. Jackson as well as the Consequences series by Aleatha Romig. Both 6-star series for me, both incredible authors!

Take This Regret series is incredibly emotional, heartfelt and beautifully written. I ugly-cried with Take This Regret, I’m not afraid to admit it! If Forever Comes is my next book and I can’t wait to see how Elizabeth and Christian’s story ends! The first two books are only $.99 right now too!

THE LIGHT THE WOUND

The Light in the Wound by Christine Brae – A beautiful, powerful, honest and emotional story that had my thoughts swirling, my heart filled with a wide range of emotions as I felt my way through this gut-wrenching story. It challenged me, made me think about how I felt about the notion of love and the power of our choices. Highly recommend this book!
