Freebie Friday: Free Books

Who doesn’t love free books, right? Here are some free ebooks I’ve downloaded this month. I checked and as of 7pm on February 25, they’re all still free: No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own. {Read More}

Must Read in 2016

Lauren at Bookmark Lit is hosting a very informal challenge called Must Read in 2016. I meant to sign up for this earlier but it got away from me until I was reviewing a book I had wanted to read in the past but didn’t get around to until now. I’ve decided to take my list from my Waiting on Wednesday posts. If I wanted to read them when I wrote the posts, I should read them! The Infinite Moment {Read More}

Freebie Friday: Free Bookmark Printables

I first started getting interested in printables last fall when I started my bullet journal. I printed out some free printable stickers and calendars to use for it, then I discovered that there are entire planners (life planners! blog planners! home maintenance planners!) that you can print out. That seemed like a little more work than I wanted to put into a planner at the time, but I found a lot of great ideas for other uses. Here are some {Read More}

Review: 3:AM Kisses (3:AM Kisses #1) by Addison Moore

Because I review mostly middle grade and young adult books, I feel like I should have a disclaimer here. 3:AM Kisses is a new adult book and this review is written for an audience that reads new adult. Middle graders, move along, please. Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets {Read More}

Money Matters: January 2016

I’ve seen other bloggers, like Berls at Fantasy is More Fun and Felicia at The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog, with book budget posts. It made me curious how much I’m spending on books each year. I have a rough idea, because I have an entertainment budget, but I’d like to get more detailed. I’m not going to try to stick to a set goal the way Berls and Felicia do, but it might end up making me think twice about {Read More}

Cover Reveal: In Your Dreams by Ginger Scott

Casey Coffield has a growing list of personal flaws he keeps locked away in his head: He’s never on time. His list of IOUs to his best friend is endless. Money is always short. Goals are never in reach. Oh, and he’s decided to add college drop-out to that list, too. He doesn’t really think that last one’s such a bad thing, but his family insists it is, so it stays on the list. On paper, he’s a zero. But {Read More}
