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)

Blog Tour: The UnEXpected Plan by Leddy Harper

47831802. sy475 He was only supposed to make my ex jealous…not make me fall in love with him.

When I discovered that my boyfriend had cheated on me with his assistant, and then left me for her, my friends and I devised a plan—to make him pay.

It was simple.
It was foolproof.
Or so I thought.

Corbin Fields was my best friend’s older brother; he was also part of my revenge plan. It was brilliant…until the unexpected happened.

I was supposed to be getting over my ex…
Not getting under my best friend’s brother.

Blog Tour: A Five-Minute Life by Emma Scott

blog tour banner-2

45876331Remember us…when I can’t.

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

Cover Reveal | Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul (Beautiful Hearts #2.5) by Emma Scott *won’t be published*

<Updated Dec. 16th, Sunday>

So Emma posted an announcement on her Facebook Page, where she confirmed that Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul won’t be published after careful deliberation. Here’s a tiny part from her original post:

After much struggle and back-and-forth; after discussion with my dear friends and my amazing sisterhood of authors; after quiet contemplation about my own capabilities and mental health; I have come to the conclusion that Una Bella Anima, the novella that was to accompany the Beautiful Hearts duet, will not be published.

As sad as I was when learning such bad news, I could totally understand why Emma made such a hard decision considering all the heartbreaking things she endured this year after losing her beloved daughter, Isabel. Therefore, please send her some love in any way possible and go read the Beautiful Hearts duet. ❤

I’m sure Emma will appreciate all your support. Thank you. 🙂

<Original Content: Nov. 23rd, Friday>

Hey, guys! This will be a rather short post because I’m squeezing quality time during work and sleep just to spread some love for my favorite contemporary romance author, Emma Scott‘s, upcoming novella, Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul!

Una Bella Anima is a novella featuring two secondary characters in the Beautiful Hearts duet, coming out in late August and mid-October, respectively. Even though this book shouldn’t be read without reading the duet first, I personally think the duet itself is worthy of giving a shot so hopefully you’ll end up reading all three of them. 😀

Book Review | Circus Hearts 2: All Fall Down by Ellie Marnie

 

41878708

A ringmaster’s daughter and a bearded lady’s son join forces to stop a saboteur…

Nineteen-year-old Fleur Klatsch is loyal to her trapeze team and her ringmaster father, dedicated to the circus, and tough on everyone around her. After a series of accidents at Klatsch’s Karnival, Fleur is left holding the ball: she’s running the carnival, trying to stop a saboteur, and taking care of her dad. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, least of all Eugenia Deloren’s son, Marco, who’s been trying to break out of show life since the moment he was born into it.

All Marco needs to do is get Klatsch’s back on its feet so he can leave. But after one fateful kiss with Fleur, will he really want to? And will Fleur and Marco figure out who’s trying to kill the show before someone kills them…
