New Look!

As you guys can see, there's a new look to the blog! This wasn't really a choice...the old formatting must have been removed (it was created years ago) and so I had to choose something different! It's a bit sunnier than it was in the past, but I like it, and I hope you all do as well!

Because this post is mostly just about that....I don't really have anything else to say. I don't have any completed lengthy reviews to post, as I've unfortunately not been reading a lot this month due to the holidays and my writing the second book for my publisher. (Don't forget, one of my books comes out on Dec. 25th)! So I guess I'll just take this time to tell you all what I'm TRYING to get read, and what I have up for R2Rs in the (hopefully) near future!

I don't usually like to read so many books at once, but I've been finding it really hard to sit and focus on any one book this past month (probably because of everything I've got going on) so I have a huge list this go around. :/

Currently Reading:

I received an advanced copy of this and when I started it I absolutely loved it! I still really want to sit down and finish it, it's just taking me forever to actually get around to doing so. As of now though, I'm excited for the book to actually come out in Feb. and might buy myself a copy even though I have this ebook. If you want to know more about it, visit it's Goodreads.com page, here:

I got a copy of this from the author in exchange for review as well. I'm not overly found of this cover,
but the book itself is very good! This isn't meant for anyone under the age of 18, however, so please keep that in mind! I read a mixture of genre's so sometimes the things I review aren't Teen/Ya Fiction. I've got about 20% more before I'm finished with this one, and I read most of it in two nights. The characters are great and complex, and aside from a few plot points I felt were rushed, I can't find anything I don't like about it! As of now I highly recommend if dark contemporary romance is your thing! More info? Click here:

Honestly, I'm only on page 18, so there's not really much I can say about this one. So far, I'm actually not that into it, but I don't feel like that's even fair to say seeing as how the book is over 400 pages, meaning I have yet to even make a dent. It's gotten really great reviews and its rating is pretty high, so I really think I just haven't given it enough of a go yet. Hopefully I get the time to do so. :) More info here:

This one is actually available to be read for free on Swoonreads.com, which is where I ran into it. I
wish I had the time to really sit down and read it straight through, because so far I am really liking it and the world building. It's a bit like Gilded Cage to be honest, or maybe that's just because I made the mistake of reading them both at the same time, I don't know, but the point is if one sounds interesting to you the other probably will as well! I would definitely check it out if I were you, especially because that's a site where you help authors get published! Here's a link to the Goodreads.com page, but again, you can find this and read it for free at Swoonreads.com :

To Read Soon:

This book isn't very long, it just feels like I never have time to get to it. I might start carrying it around in my purse. This also isn't generally like the books I read, so that might be why it's taking forever as well. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review from the author, and I did read the first few pages which I liked. So, if you're the author reading this, I DIDN'T FORGET! It's just taking me a while to get to. Add to your reading list here:

Here's another one for R2R. The author actually just sent it over to me yesterday, and it sounds so
good that I'm really looking forward to getting to it! I think I'll probably move it up my list to be honest! :) And the cover is great!!!! For more info go here:
