Blog Tour: The Day He Went Away by Jennifer Millikin

THEDAY_BlogBanner

Hello, hello, hello!!!

Happy weekend, lovely people! It’s been a while since I posted something here but life has become more and more hectic due to the heavy workload. I’m back at working almost 12 hours a day and we had to work six days last week so not much time to engage at all. 😥

Despite the fact that I barely have time to hang around in the book community, there’s no way I’ll skip this amazing opportunity spreading the word about my latest favorite read, The Day He Went Away, by Jennifer Millikin, an incredibly talented author I’ve come to love ever since I read Good on Paper last year.

This book totally wrecked me but I still couldn’t recommend it enough. That being said, what are we waiting for? Let’s get this party started, shall we?

Read-to-Review: What Do You See? (What Do You #1) by K. Dosal McLendon

45488033. sy475 Claire
I believed I had my future all planned out.
College, track, friends, I mean, why wouldn’t I? I was a nineteen-year-old girl in college with a dream of being an Olympian that wasn’t too far within reach as a college top track star.
A jeep I could roll the windows down while the radio blasted as I sang off-key.
My own dorm that gifted me privacy from my two triplet brothers.
I had it all.
But just like many, I took it all for granted. That’s until my life turned upside down, and everything changed. I nearly became one more lost soul. Without the love of my family, friends, and a very charming soccer player, I would’ve truly lost myself in the process.
This is my story and how I began to see beyond what’s right in front of me.
Funny, all I had to do was open my eyes.
The only problem is time.

Jake
lived a life never truly paying attention to the world around me. I had my dad, my grams, and my soccer ball. I was perfectly fine with the way I lived life.
Why grow attached to things that can walk away?
That’s until I saw her.
The girl I never thought I would find–the one who made me see in a different perspective.
​Oh, and how beautiful it is. (From: Goodreads)

Read-to-Review: Rowan Revived by Taylor Danae Colbert

50170375. sx318 sy475 Miss Fix-It—that’s me. And when my sister and nephew are in danger, it’s my natural instinct to step in and get them out of Boston. The girl with the plan, always.

We land at the Rowan Inn—a charming bed-and-breakfast on the shores of the Chesapeake. A sweet little haven we’re hoping will bring us the peace we so desperately need.

Instead, it brings us Jesse Rowan, the gruff and grumpy son of the original owners. The same guy who is single-handedly sinking the Inn faster than an anchor in the bay. But we need a place to crash until I can figure out our next move, so I convince him to let us stay in exchange for help around the place.

At first, he’s rude, sarcastic, and standoffish. But after a few months of working around the Inn together, I realize he’s not as callous as he’d like us to think. And I realize that maybe the Inn isn’t the only project I want to take on. He needs some fixing, too.

But the Inn has to be just a pitstop for us. And as long as we’re on the run, Jesse Rowan can’t be my final destination. (From: Goodreads)

As Evie’s life back home unravels, Oskar wants to comfort her with words, but he knows he’s waited too long, so he uses music instead. But when it all comes to the surface, he knows that if Evie can’t forgive him for lying, he may never forgive himself for surviving.
