We Were Books First

Afternoon Kindle-ites!!! I know, I know...it has been WAY to long since I have done an adaptation list, I apologize. But I figured now was probably the best time to buckle down and spit one out for you. Why? Well, it's a new year AND a new year means updated TBRs.  If you are anything like me you like to read the book before seeing the movie, and having advanced notice is usually helpful. So here they are...just a few of the book to movie adaptations coming out in 2015.  (Note: I've only featured movies who currently have a trailer. I will post a feature in the future introducing you to ...

Cover Reveal – “Maybe Me” by Amber Hart

maybe me-2

  Maybe Me by Amber Hart Before & After #3 Release Date: September 29, 2015 Add it to your Goodreads shelf / Amazon wishlist   A sliver of a second is all it takes.  Maria Reyes knows what it means to come from nothing. Escaping Cuba, the States have given Maria new dreams. Like graduating high school. Going to college. Making something of herself. Forgetting a past that always seems to creep up on her family. But mostly, staying out of trouble. Which is why falling for Hale is out of the question.  An unguarded moment, a simple mistake. Hale […]

What Doesn’t Kill You…

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 7.42.27 AM

  I can deal with a lot of nonsense when it comes to books. Weak characters, repetition in verbiage, even the occasional meaningless chapter. But there is one thing that I find tough to swallow…weak plots. One of the reasons I read is to be swept away. I want to live the extra life literature has afforded me. Get lost in an alternate world. (Even if that world is based around the off-kilter mind of a serial killer.) Unfortunately, that particular goal is difficult to accomplish when a story lacks focus.  That is the problem with Hoag’s “Cold Cold Heart.” […]

Purchase it NOW: Kindle | Kindle UK | Kindle Australia   A Little Taste…   My house is a crime scene, I’m completely alone, and I can’t call a single friend. I’m so mad at Ashton I want to scream, but I’d have to yell pretty damn loud for him to hear me now. My head drops into my hands, and I rub my temples hoping to fight off my growing migraine. After a few minutes, I feel someone sit next to me. I fan my fingers and look up to […]

And Then…I Broke.

  G.K. Chesterton once said: “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”   At this very moment, the love behind me comes in the form of novel. The fight in front of me, finding a way to expression my passion for it without sounding like a crazed lunatic. A year ago I read a book that made others cower in its shadow. Its plot dominated spaces in my mind I failed to even recognize, and it’s characters ignited in me a passion I thought long […]

The Cost of Being Happy + Giveaway!

Forbidden 2

  There is this quote (a pretty wordy one…my apologies) by Eckart Tolle that says: “Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you much choose now. Then accept the consequences.” Harsh isn’t it. BUT…it’s also kind of true. Life (today) is one big ball of choices, and those choices will eventually define us. It’s up […]
