Books Read this Week: 

Down and Across Arvin Ahmadi: You know a book is going to be good when Adam Silvera blurbs it, and indeed, Down and Across is amazing! It's charming as well as quirky! I loved the focus on finding ones "grit." 
You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon: This was one of my most anticipated books of 2018 so to say I was nervous going into it would be an understatement. However, it ended up being amazing! Rachel Lynn Solomon has created realistic, complicated characters here - ones who are more times unlikable then likable. But I couldn't stop rooting for them! 
A Perilous Passion by Elizabeth Keysian: Started off strong; however, it began to loose its steam as it progressed. Overall, I enjoyed it. 
Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington: This had the 3 Ss: short, sweet, and sexy! 
One Love by Deanna Cabinian: This ended up being the sequel I didn't know I needed. Look out for my review later today!
Only for You (Sugar Lake, #2)by Melissa Foster: The hero in this loves romance novels...I mean seriously, can it get more "aww!!" worthy than that? Short answer: it can't! Anyhow, this was very adorable. I loved the emphasis on family!

New in my Reading/Blogging/Personal Life: 

Can you all believe it's already December? Because I certainly can't! Before we know it will be the end of 2017. 

Anyhow, this week went by super quick, and I was completely okay with that. I'd rather have a fast week than have one that just drags along. Nothing too exciting happened - just the regular mix of classes and seminars. It was surprisingly warm this week - most days where in the 50s - and I loved it even if it did feel a tad off.

I'm super excited about the books I received this week as well as well as the ones I managed to read. I can't suggest DOWN AND ACROSS and YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE highly enough! Both are standout 2018 debuts, and I can't wait for y'all to read them! They're spectacular to say the least :) 

Anyhow, have a fantastic week, everyone! 


  1. We're friends on Goodreads so I know you've been reading a ton - look forward to your thoughts on Sometimes I Lie because I'm on the fence about that one!

  2. Wow that is an amazing book haul! I am looking forward to reading Sometimes I Lie, it sounds like it is going to be really good. Yay for a quick week, I prefer those. But this year is going by so fast. Happy reading. :)

  3. I love fast weeks - makes the weekend come that much quicker! A lot of these are new to me, but I love that cover of Next Year in Havana - I'm a sucker for a pretty dress on a cover!

  4. Blink and Trespassing both sound fun! It's been surprisingly nice here too- and for early December. Glad you had some good reads this week too!

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Looks like you got some awesome books to read soon! And I'd rather have a quick week than one that drags too. I'm hoping this week will go by pretty quick. :)


  6. SO excited to hear you loved You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone!! I've heard a lot about that one and it sounds like the perfect read for me - I adore unlikeable, realistic characters. I'll definitely try get my hands on a copy sometime!

    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, Lauren :) <3

  7. Wow, you got some good-looking books. I hope you enjoy them all!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  8. I have Down and Across so I'm glad to hear it's quirky. I'm so jealous that you have The Tombs.

  9. I almost grabbed Down and Across from First to Read but resisted because I wasn't sure I would have the time. I think I should have grabbed it when I had the chance! I hope you enjoy all of your new books and have a great week!

  10. My week went super quick too! Didn't get time to do anything D: not even haul books, basically :D although I wouldn't say that's a bad thing, considering I hauled 20 last month xDD
    Have a great week :)
