Top Ten Books Set Outside of the USA

Top Ten Books Set Outside of the USA

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This list is not entirely fair because it makes me want to pack up my bags and head out on vacation IMMEDIATELY. And I’m not going anywhere until November. *sobs forever* Bring on the Wanderlust 1. Just One Day by Gayle Forman: This book WHICH I AM STILL PRETENDING IS A STANDALONE was pretty much perfect. You see parts of London and a ton of Paris with a side of a tiny bit of Holland, all as a beautifully fleshed out backdrop to an amazing character […]

2015 Reading Statistics

2015 Reading Statistics

I know I’m royally late in wrapping up 2015, but better late than never right? A week or so ago, I shared my 2015 End of Year Book Survey, but now it’s time for the numbers. You know how I like to get nerdy about my reading. The following charts and graphs were made using my yearbook spreadsheet – and if you’re interested, I did this analysis for 2014 last year here! General Statistics Last year, I read a lot more (128), but this year there was job hunting and actual adulting to be done, so it makes sense that it’s less. I’ve also had […]

I know, I know. It’s FEBRUARY, Debby, why are you just now reflecting on 2015? Well, January was a mess, blogging-wise.

Book Review: Every Move by Ellie Marney

Book Review: Every Move by Ellie Marney

On an absolute feels high, it was inevitable that I had to read Every Move immediately after Every Word, finishing my binge of what is now one of my all-time favorite series. Intense action, thrills, and romance make for an addictive and engrossing read. Holy intensity, Batman. Every Move pulls no punches. The stakes are high – like insanely high. After Every Word, I think it was generally understood that Wild is not a friendly guy… But in Every Move, he gets possibly even scarier. Murders start littering the streets of Melbourne, bodies resembling those of Rachel and Mycroft, sending a clear message that they […]

Book Review: Every Word by Ellie Marney

Book Review: Every Word by Ellie Marney

I couldn’t help myself – I was on such a shipping high when I finished Every Breath that I had to dive into Every Word right away. And I regret nothing. This series is seriously shaping up to become one of my favorites. Our heroes, Rachel Watts and James Mycroft, are back in another thrilling adventure that is equal parts intensely dark and incredibly sexy. At the end of Every Breath the ship was a definite THING and now sparks are flying all over the place. Seriously, someone give Ellie Marney all the awards for writing AMAZING kissing scenes. These two have electrifying chemistry, for […]

Book Review: Every Breath by Ellie Marney

Book Review: Every Breath by Ellie Marney

Ever since its release last year in the US, Every Breath has been spreading around the YA book blogging circuit as one of the most hyped titles ever. But, I mean, with a premise of a modern YA Sherlock with a female Watson and the promise of great shippy times, who can blame them? I certainly couldn’t resist. And I’m so glad I didn’t. This boooooook. You guys. Like, seriously. Read it. So, elephant in the room: basically everyone who has read this book has been going crazy about the romance. I kinda hate hype like that, but I would be lying (SO HARD) if […]
