Happy Sunday, everyone!!
How’s your week? I hope it’s amazing. Today I have a book recommendation perfect for your summer read so keep on reading and scrolling! 🙂
Jillian Liota is a rather new contemporary romance author for me and I’m so happy I found her through InkSlinger’s latest blog tour opportunity for her new release, The Trouble with Wanting!!
At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…
Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.
No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.
Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.
But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?
Lost Boys is a new series of interconnected, coming-of-age standalones from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, coming in 2020.
Hello, everyone! Great to see you again, and it’s time for my stop for the blog tour. Today I’m introducing a book I recently read (and hopefully would enjoy more), which is the first instalment of the Empire High series by Ivy Smoak, Empire High Untouchables.
All I want to say is that I wish this would be your cup of tea and that you’ll end up loving this book more than I do. 😛 Without further ado, let’s get started!
A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.
Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.
They’re polar opposites.
In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block.
Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really. (From: Goodreads)

For nearly sixty years, Bennytown has been America’s most exciting family theme park destination. Under the watchful eye of cultural icon Benny the Bunny, the park has entertained generations of children with its friendly atmosphere and technologically innovative rides. Park founder Fletcher Dorian’s dream lives to this day, with Bennytown acting as a beacon of joy and wonder, where magic is real and dreams come true.
Bennytown once saved sixteen-year-old Noel Hallstrom’s life, and to repay it, Noel has applied for a summer job. Though the work is messy and the hours are bad, Noel is happy to be a part of the Bennytown family, until he sees the darkness beneath the surface. Strange, mechanized mascots walk the park perimeter. Elegantly dressed cultists in wooden Benny masks lurk in the darkness. Spirits of the many who’ve died in the park roam freely, and every night the park transforms into a dark dimension where madness reigns and monsters prowl.
Noel is about to find out more about Bennytown than he ever wanted to know, and that its darkness might have designs on him… (From: Goodreads)
I never thought I’d catch serious feelings for someone at seventeen—isn’t life complicated enough at this age?—let alone for my polar opposite.
I’m the quiet, reserved bookworm.
He’s the popular, confident jock at the center of every party.
He’s also kind, charming, and sweet.
The determined wide receiver worms his way past my defenses.
I see a side of him no one else does, and he makes me feel things I’ve only ever read about.
He isn’t my perfect match, but at some point, I can’t ignore what my heart is trying to say.
So, what happens when a heart trips? Well, at some point, the fall is unavoidable, and I’m falling headfirst into something I didn’t want in the first place.
I asked for a crush, not for this.

Long time no see, everybody! How have you been lately? I hope you’re all doing much better than I do. Work has been insanely busy and all of my colleagues and I have been working over 14 hours a day for three consecutive weeks. *sigh*
My only respite every weekend is some good rom-com, bookstagram (GASPS), and simply getting sufficient sleep. I know I’m jeopardizing my health by going to bed at 2 during week days and barely having any sleep due to stress/anxiety, but I honestly don’t know how to make a change. 😦
Anyways, today I’m sharing a book that I hope you’ll love more than I do, and it’s also the first blog tour I’ve joined…in almost four months. Enjoy!
Hello, everybody! LONG TIME NO SEE!!!
Man, time has changed; life recently isn’t the same and I doubt it’ll go back to normal anytime soon. 😥
So, how are you holdin’ up?
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?
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.
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)
