Today is a special day for a couple reasons. 1) I’m blogging again, who would have expected that? and 2) I have a very awesome interview with author Alex London in honor of the release (which is tomorrow Sept. 3rd) for “Red Skies Falling” which is the sequel to “Black Wings Beating.” This is definitely one of the most highly anticipated releases this year and I know you’re going to love it. Here’s why….
Hello, World! (<– If you’ve read the book or are a massive tech nerd like I am, you’ll get the reference lol)
Truthfully, it’s been WAY too long since I last blogged or wrote a book review. There are a million reasons why that happened and I’ll share those in another post. I knew I missed blogging and sitting down to write this post feels like a breath of fresh air. So are you ready for a non-spoiler book review?? YAY!
I just finished “Girl Gone Viral” by Arvin Ahmadi last night and it definitely gets 4/5 stars. I really enjoyed the book and I’m hoping there will be a second one. Now let’s get to the reason you’re here… the review!
I love that we’ve had the opportunity to work with such an amazing author and person over the years. Errin is seriously the best and if you love mermaids then this series is one you need to add to your TBR right now! Keep reading for more aobut Outrush, the latest book in the series and also a giveaway!!
Told from the split viewpoints of Liv and Jory, Kate A. Boorman’s What We Buried is a psychological thrill ride that deftly explores how memories can lie, how time can bend, and how reconciling the truth can be a matter of life or death.
You’re not going to want to miss out on this epic thriller by Kate Boorman. Keep reading for more details on how you can win a copy of the book and more details on this must read novel.
*A huge thank you to Fierce Reads for partnering with me on this tour and gifting me a copy of the book.

Let’s just stop time for a moment and thank Tahereh Mafi for giving us the best Christmas present ever… a heaping dose of heartache!
*grips heart and curls in the fetal position*
It’s rare that I get super personal on this blog but after reading “The Problem with Forever” by Jennifer L. Armentrout I had to speak a bit of. my heart…
There may be some semi-spoilers in this post so read it cautiously if you haven’t read the novel yet. Mainly though this post is a letter to my best friend. Well, he used to be my best friend. Here’s how all this ties in…
Hello Book Lovelies,
As you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been posting in a few months and I wanted to update you on why that was and what is to come.
Firstly, my mum passed away October 4th from cancer. She fought the hardest battle of her life and I don’t like to say that she lost because I know she’s in Heaven and her best life is just beginning, but eventually it became too much for her body to handle and she went home to be with God. These months have been the hardest I’ve ever faced. I still cry for no reason at all and I still find my heart breaking over and over again as I begin to discover life without my mum.
Taking these past months to myself to try and cope with this massive life change and heartbreak has been good. However, I’ve missed you all SO much. Even though I’ve been around in and out for the past two years I feel like I’ve been gone that whole time. You know how you feel physically there but not mentally there? My blog, book tube, and Bookstagram account suffered. All the hard work I had put in suddenly felt as though it were slipping through my fingers. Of course, my mum was my first priority and I would never change that for the world but it definitely caused me to take a step or two back from the book world and I missed it more then I can say.
Soooo….now that I am beginning to stabilize a bit and figure out this new normal of life I am working on getting my Bookstagram back in order, filming videos for YouTube and also writing the books I have been wanting to share with all of you for so long. I know my mum always dreamed of me turning writing into a full time job and I want to make that dream a reality, for her and for me.
It may be a slow start as I get my head back into it all and figure out my work flow. I feel a bit overwhelmed at times with all I am trying to catch up on and I need to slow down from time to time.
As I relaunch back into the world of social media and blogging I want to find a balance between books and life. That doesn’t mean I won’t keep reviewing books as I read them, promoting books…etc. What I envision is me talking a bit more about the power books have in our lives and doing more tutorials for your Bookstagram accounts…etc. Maybe even some DIYs! Let me know if there is something specific you’d like to see. I’m excited for what is ahead and looking forward to going on this journey with all of you.
Speaking of books…. Since my mum passed away I haven’t been able to read. There are so many books I just couldn’t get into no matter how hard I tried. Honestly, I just haven’t felt like myself and it’s been very hard for me to find passion for anything lately. I feel burnt out and tired and even though my heart yearns to connect with the things I love it often times feels very numb. Last weekend I had a meeting at work and a very long break in between my shift and I headed over to trusty Barnes & Noble. I had a 15% off coupon and decided if I found anything that sparked my interest I would pick it up. I’ve been desperate to start reading again. I found the book “Paper Girl.” I didn’t realize it had just come out and it’s honestly such a good book. I feel like I was led to it on purpose and I’m thankful for it. I’m about 1/2 way through it. I will write a proper review once I finish it, but please check it out if you haven’t already…it’s SO good!!
Alright, enough of my rambling. lol I’ve missed you, can you tell? Expect more from me very soon! Sending you all heaps of love. Until next time, Happy Reading & Writing!!! <3
