Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent . . . her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia. . . .

I’m so excited for you guys to meet Lucian. the wildest of the de Vincent brothers, and Julia, who is looking to start over and to finally start living. Moonlight Sins is a contemporary romance with a little bit of suspense, a mystery, and… something more.

Update….

Hey guys.. So wow. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything here. Let me start off by saying I am so sorry! I love this blog and everyone here, but I needed a little break. Here’s why:

I was in a really bad reading slump and I’m trying my best to get out of it.

Finals just got over with and I needed to devote a lot of time and energy to that.

And finally, I’m gonna be real with you. My mental health has not been in the best place recently. I’ve been depressed, anxious, extremely stressed out. And because of this I have not had much motivation to even read or do anything besides lay in bed with my laptop. I’m home now and I’m hoping to feel better first of all because I have been sick. I’m going to the doctor in a few days and I’m going to talk to my mom about the fact that I just don’t feel myself. I never want you guys to feel like I just stopped caring, but the holidays are really difficult times for me and I’ve just been dealing with a lot. Thank you for being so understanding.

Until Next Time,

Alex

Broken Prince by Erin Watt

“From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.

THESE ROYALS WILL RUIN YOU…

Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.

What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.

Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.

SHE MIGHT BE RIGHT.

Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Back with another reviews guys!

Okay wow wow I loved this book. I’m the kind of person that as soon as a guy does something in real life and in books I want to smack them. So I wanted to smack Reed, I wanted Ella to put on her Taylor Swift music and get the hell over it.

But that’s not how it works in YA, does it? Nope. Reed tried so hard to get back in Ella’s graces and he succeeded. Which in real life, I would probably be acting like Ella too. But dang this made me fall in love with Reed and the Royals even more. And that ending!

I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it. Again, this is NOT YA, but it is New Adult. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 17 and honestly even 17. There is some violence and some mature content.

Until Next Time,

Alex

I made a Booktube channel!

Hey guys so a little update. I’m currently reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and loving it.

I’m still in a reading slump sadly though so I might not complete my reading goal for this month, but I still have a few days and 5 books to finish so we’ll see.

Anyways the real reason I wanted to do this. I made a Booktube channel! I’ll link it below and link it in my about section.

I’m really excited to do this, don’t worry I’m going to keep the blog. I still want to do book reviews and talk about things. I want to do book hauls though as well as TBRs and Wrap ups and book tags.

I hope you guys check it out!

 

Until Next Time,

Alex

Why I Quit Bookstagram

Hey guys! So I wanted to address this. I didn’t know if anyone would care.

So up until just recently I had a bookstagram account where I posted about books. I love books as you can tell. And I love photography so it seemed like the perfect fit. And it was for awhile. But I noticed recently that I was feeling bored with it. I wasn’t posting as often  and not because I was busy. Let’s be real, I don’t have a life for the most part.

So that’s the short answer: I was feeling bored.

I didn’t have inspiration to take pictures even though I have a brand new camera. I wasn’t feeling like new layouts even though I have been steadily buying new books. I was tired of it. It didn’t feel like it was challenging me. Now, blogging I will be doing for as long as possible cause it challenges me and I want to share my opinion.

I also felt like it would be hard and weird to take pictures in college. Bookstagram pictures that is. Whereas blogging isn’t as difficult while in college. I also don’t want to feel obligated to post all the time during college. I want to really enjoy college and spend it making new friends and learning. So I might take some artsy pictures for the blog, but as for bookstagram I don’t feel comfortable!

Thanks for understanding.

Until Next Time,

Alex

Why I Haven’t Posted As Much!

So guys I wanted to just give a little update!

I realized I haven’t been posting as much, not because I don’t love blogging anymore, but because I am in a reading slump. So book reviews are not happening because I am not finishing books. My goal is to finish Lord of Shadows this weekend or like next Monday and have a book review up on Tuesday.

It’s just my reading has been so great this year! And I’ve been reading so many books, but I’m just in a little mini reading slump. So hoping that I’ll finish LoS and it’ll kick me out of   this reading slump so I can bring you guys more book reviews and content!

I would like you guys to comment some stuff that you might like to see so I can bring you the best!

Until Next Time,

Alex

Isla and the Happily Ever After

“Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

So I read this immediately after I finished Lola and the Boy Next Door. I loved this book and the romance (again).I loved how at the end we see all of the main couples together because they are all goals. Josh and Isla are such a cute couple, but I gotta say Isla is my least favorite. She just wasn’t as inviting as Anna and Lola. I mean she was very rude and kind of jealous. But I still really enjoyed the book.

I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars! I think honestly Josh and the romance made up for Isla’s character. They do some *naughty* things in this book so I would recommend to at least 14. Don’t those kids to be corrupted.

Until Next Time,

Alex

18 Things I Learned in 18 Years!

So since it is my 18th birthday today I thought it would be fun to do something different! And yes I know April Fool’s Day is so funny.

  1. Cherish your childhood because it will be gone.
  2. Don’t wish your life away.
  3. All the bad things that happen to you, will make you stronger. And it will get better!
  4. Do what you love and be who you are because in the end those things will make you more successful.
  5. The people that bully you, won’t matter in 10 years besides the fact you are stronger.
  6. People wil leave your life and that’s okay. Sometimes they’re only meant to be their for parts of your life.
  7. Don’t settle. Just don’t do it.
  8. Follow your heart and learn what your passion is and go for it.
  9. Be kind. Cause you don’t want to be a bad person.
  10. Eat what you want when you’re young because when you’re older you’ll have to watch out for what you eat.
  11. Love yourself because guess what hating yourself isn’t worth it. Don’t listen to what society says. Society is stupid.
  12. Take chances because life is more fun when you do.
  13. If a guy breaks your heart, well it’s just a guy. It will get better. He’s not worth it and you will find someone better.  Or girl, whatever your preference is.
  14. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Some of the best people in my life are not people I would’ve expected to make such  an impact. 
  15.  Love on your family because you never know when they are gonna be gone. I lost my dad last year and I wish that I could’ve spent more time with him and loved on him more than I did.
  16. The people you meet in high school will not always be the people you leave high school with. Or college with. Or life with.
  17. Always be true to who you are because you will attract the best people that way.
  18. Adulting is really hard. So please don’t take your family for granted or any adults because it’s really difficult.

Okay guys! I thought this would be super fun to do! I might start doing more things like this to add variety. Let me know what you think!
Until Next Time,

Alex

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

“In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Hey guys! So I meant to post this review last week, but I was on vacation so I didn’t get around to it. So get ready for a little overload of posts this weekend (and on to next week)

So, I finished this book last Thursday and I was very happy about it. The entire book was so good and captivating and it felt so good to read. Until about 100 pages left in the book….. Then it just felt like it wasn’t needed. I mean it made sense with the ending of the book. I just wish it easier to get to the conclusion.

ALSO that ending though. Like, Victoria excuse me who gave you the right??? Just when I thought my OTP was gonna work out you throw that in there. They better work out in the next book. Wait, there is a next book, right? Cause it can’t end like that.

Anyways, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. It was really engaging, but I can’t get over those last 100 or so pages. I recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy/ dystopian whatever this book is categorized as. It does have some mature stuff in it, just not like overly mature if that makes any sense (does it?) So I recommend it to like 14 and up.

Until Next Time,

Alex
