This weekend is Valentine’s Day and to celebrate I’m sharing one of my favorite love songs ever. Of course, I’ve always interpreted Yellow to be a love song, but others have said they believe it’s about death. Ugh, ok creepers. In reality, Yellow is not about anything more than just inspiration striking at the right […]

Contemporary Romance Challenge Last month I read four books for this challenge. Unfortunately, some of them were just disappointing and made me hate romance just a little. When I’m Back & When I’m Gone by Abbie Glines 2 stars. I think I may be done with this series and with Abbi Glines for a while. These books […]
When the ladies of Fiction Fare and Swoony Boys Podcast extended the invitation to be a part of this event I had to say yes! I love romance and swoon and could not pass this up. So for my stop I’ll be sharing some favorite scenes that make my heart race every. single. time! I […]
I really love this guy’s voice. It reminds me Band of Horses, one of my favorite bands. I love the easy, classic melody of this song. And the repetitive lyrics make it easy to remember and sing along to. What do you guys think?

And thus, one of my favorite Contemporary Romance series comes to an end. *queue the tears* Connor and Jessica have always been a bit of a mystery, and in Anything For You we find out why! They’ve kept their on-and-off relationship a secret from everyone for YEARS. Jessica had a really rough childhood. She’s grown […]
I first heard this song late last year and didn’t think much of it at first listen, but the more I heard it the more I reeeeeally liked it. So if at first you’re not convinced, give it a few more listens. Trust me!
I really stacked the shelves in 2015, so my goal for 2016 is to buy more ebooks and reserve the physical book purchases for those I KNOW I’ll read within the month. So far, I’m staying on track! I know we’re less than a month into the year, but I’m really proud of myself! Lol […]
The Freshman is one of those songs from the 90s that you never forget. The lyrics point to a sad story of abortion and suicide. And according to the song’s wiki page it’s partly true, which I never knew. So for funsies, tell me what school grade or how old you were when this song […]
The last three weeks have brought A LOT of books into my life! Especially having gone to ALAMW in Boston last weekend. Since it’s so many books, I’ll just link my Goodreads shelves where they’ll be listed. :) Firstly, my TBTB Secret Santa this year was the wonderful Estelle of Rather Be Reading and she […]
So this year I’ve decided to only participate in one challenge: Contemporary Romance 2016 Reading Challenge, hosted by myself and Danielle @ Love at First Page. Last year I did a bunch and didn’t really keep up with updating and such, so this year we’re going simple. The level I’m picking is: Grand Slam: read 21+ books, […]
2015 was a GREAT year in music for me. I found so much new music to love and reconnected with old favorites too. I went to million concerts–exaggerating, of course. :) Here’s all the concerts I went to: Feb: Motion City Soundtrack Mar: John Legend Mar: Fall Out Boy July: Third Eye Blind/Dashboard Confessional/Augustana July: […]
1. Take acquiring books/ebooks/ARCs down a notch. – I finally reduced the number of books in my house in 2015 (most all unread) and now I just need to stop buying/requesting/receiving them and read what I have. Grant it, I acquired more ebooks/egalleys than physical books last year, which helped, but now I need to […]
Can you guys believe it?! FIVE YEARS! It doesn’t even feel like that long. Wow… The last five years have been some of my most favorite ever. I’ve met some of the best people and gone to some awesome places, all because of this blog I started back in 2011. You can read all about […]
