50/50 Friday - Favorite/Least Favorite Intended Audience Genre (YA, NA, MG, Adult, etc)

50/50 Friday is hosted here on this blog and over at Blue Eye Books . What is 50/50 Friday? Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know! Topic for the Week Favorite/Least Favorite Intended Audience Genre (YA, NA, MG, Adult, etc) Least Favorite This is an easy one for me. Now, just because I don't like this genre it doesn't mean it's bad or I think less of it. It's just not my cup of tea. Middle Grade was a genre that I only read a little of before jumping into adult and young adult. It just really clicked with me. I think it was because I wanted more romance and kissing, more detailed kissing and romance than what middle grade offered. Favorite  Take me back two or even maybe

The Iron Flower - ARC Review

Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs, but their actions have propelled them straight into the ranks of the realm-wide Resistance against Gardnerian encroachment. As the Resistance struggles against the harsh rulings of High Priest Marcus Vogel and the Mage Council, Elloren begins to realize that none of the people she cares about will be safe if Gardneria seizes control of the Western Realm. With tensions heating up in Verpacia, more and more Gardnerian soldiers continue to descend upon the university…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the newly rebuilt Fourth Division base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm’s length, Lukas is determined to wandfast to her, convinced that she has inherited her grandmother’s magic—the prophesied power of the Black Witch. As his very nearness seems to awaken a darkness inside her, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she’s truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed. Caught be

Book Characters on Tinder!

I've seen this floating around on the web and thought it would be fun to try! I had my partner choose a few different book characters for me. Also let's assume that everyone here is above legal age and its an actual date... not just a hook up. Let's just jump into this!  Something we should just get out of the way now, I'm very picky. VERY picky. That should be known now before we go any further. 1) Harry Potter Now, I would pass on Harry. He's too hotheaded and often jumps into things before thinking and that's not something I'm into. On a more superficial level, I don't like short guys. 2) Celaena Sardothien She's awesome, kickass, powerful, giving, protective, and pretty much as awesome as they come. But she's not my type... so pass. 3) Karou She's stunning, sweet, strong and feminine, funny, and just all around an awesome person. So yes! I'd totally go on a date with Karou. 4) Cameron Hamilton He's understanding, hot as hell, will

July 2018 Wrap Up!

I read 13 books last month, which is really good for me. July was hard, my partner started a new job where we have to get up super early and then I've been taking lots workshops so I can be a substitute teacher and then my daughter is getting ready to start school, which means we will all be getting colds a lot... needless to say, it's been a very twisted month and I hope August is better.  Now to the reason you even came here, the books! What books did I read this month? Well, let's dive into it. Considering my lowest rated book was three stars, I'd call this month a win! Have you read any of these books? Let me know below! Have a great day! 

The Score (Off-Campus #3)

He knows how to score, on and off the ice Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands. It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time
