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.

Blog Tour/Review: Silent Orchids by Morgan Wylie

I’m am so excited to be a part of the blog tour for Silent Orchids, and I am going to work my review in somewhere!  Today, Morgan Wylie has brought us a fun glimpse of her writing community…
Hello and thank you for having me here today to talk about the importance of community in writing.
I wouldn’t be where I am without community. Writing is a very introverted process and can get lonely especially if there aren’t people around you that understand the journey you are on. Let’s face it, not …

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 …

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths, by K.A. Tucker, is not the first Contemporary novel I’ve read, but it is the first New Adult novel I’ve read. (By now y’all know I prefer Paranormal and Fantasy.)  Where Young Adult tends to be the level of content that I’m most comfortable with, this New Adult novel did not have me shying away from the new category of fiction for twenty-somethings.  (Although, I might have blushed a few times!)  Ten Tiny Breaths takes a look at the life of a young woman who has survived …
