Top Ten Books Read in 2015

Banner_top books and series

I hate when people ask me what my favorite book is because that is utterly impossible to answer! More than that I can’t even come up with a list of favorite books because the order in which I love them changes depending on where I’m at in life, when I last read it, or even what I had for breakfast (well, you get the point). So, with all of that said I did try my best to come up with a few “Top 10” lists for you all and feel free to comment below with some of your own favorites and any suggestions you have for me to read in 2016!  Continue reading

Bookishly Ever After

Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira (2016)
-eARC Review-

Bookishly Ever After
Teen Fiction | Contemporary Romance | Rom-Com
4 Stars
Blurb:

“In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary. But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?”
