Heart Breaths by K.K.Hendin

“New Adult” is a frustrating genre for me.  Since I am an “older” Young Adult reader.  A genre that focuses on more mature characters sounds really appealing.   Too frequently, I have found the label “New Adult” meant very violent or highly sexual situations for the older characters.  These two characteristics are the reason I shy away from some of the adult books.  So I have been very picky with what I read in the “New Adult” genre.  I am very pleased to say that Heart Breaths by K.K. Hendin was a pleasant surprise.
The …

Dance the Moon Down by R.L. Bartram

Synopsis from Amazon UK:
In 1910, no one believed there would ever be a war with Germany. Safe in her affluent middle-class life, the rumours held no significance for Victoria either. It was her father’s decision to enroll her at university that began to change all that. There she befriends the rebellious and outspoken Beryl Whittaker, an emergent suffragette, but it is her love for Gerald Avery, a talented young poet from a neighbouring university that sets the seal on her future. After a clandestine romance, they marry in January 1914, …

Blog Tour/Review: VAIN by Fisher Amelie

REVIEW:
Vain, by Fisher Amelie, was a refreshing read for me! Not only was I completely unaware of where the story would lead the main character, but it was also a great change for me in the New Adult genre.  (Side Note: New Adult should NOT translate to smut.) Vain offered a story that was insightful and encouraged self-reflection, but it remained entertaining.
Sophie is annoying for the first few chapters, and I think it helped me appreciate the journey she goes on as well as the changes she makes in her life.  Make …

Review of Beautiful Disaster/Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Disaster, by Jamie McGuire, was released in August of 2012, and Walking Disaster was just released this month.  The former is the story from Abby Abernathy’s POV, and she pushes past being the whiny bad girl, but still has a slew of issues to work through.  The latter is Travis Maddox’s POV, and he has spent his life avoiding the emotions by focusing on the physical.
I’ll start out by saying that this novel came highly recommended by a girlfriend of mine, and I usually like 80% of the novels …

How to get the boy or girl of your dreams
Courtesy of Ava, Goddess of Love.
(Aimée Carter (@aimee_carter) www.aimeecarter.com)
You might think being the Goddess of Love would make dating a whole lot easier, but not even I can catch a break sometimes. Every so often the boy I love is seeing someone else, or he’s not that into me (and also might be a bit crazy, but that’s beside the point). Or he doesn’t like girls at all (which is how I’ve found some of my best friends). Whatever the case may …

The Trouble With Fate & an Interview with Leigh Evans

I feel like I have been waiting forever to share this book with you! I was given the opportunity to read THE TROUBLE WITH FATE by Leigh Evans about a year ago when it was still in the process of being published by St. Martin’s, and I fell in love with the story and the characters. Hedi is one of those chicks that I completely loved to read. Her voice was refreshing and totally kicka** to be honest, which is much like the author once you get to know her. Evans …
