ARC Review – Dear Martin by Nic Stone

Welcome to the blog tour for Dear Martin, by Nic Stone, presented by Rockstar Blog Tours (don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the review)! I’m so excited to be a part of this, because this book is so so good. I’ll be recommending it for years to come, and it’s a great companion to The Hate U Give, which was also published this year and was also fantastic. So, without further ado, I’ll get right into this gem of a book.


Amanda Reads – October 2017

October was a long, discouraging month for me when it came to reading. I felt like I either hated or loved what I was reading the whole month, and it ping ponged back and forth. And it annoyed me.

Top 5 Wednesday – Genre Bending Books

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube.

I didn’t realize how many books could be considered genre benders that were already on my ‘Read’ list on Goodreads. So anyway, here we go!Read More »

Top 10 Tuesday – Favorite Villains (Happy Halloween!)

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve loved making it a regular post on this blog! This week, we’re talking about our favorite villains, which was honestly a little bit difficult for me! I read so much contemporary and romance and contemporary romance that the “villains” aren’t always established people, if that makes any sense. But no matter – I came up with ten and I’m excited to talk about them! Let’s jump right into this fun Halloween list!Read More »

ARC Review – Never Apart by Romily Bernard

Hey everyone! This is a little later than intended (sorry MaryAnn!), but I have the privilege to be part of the Never Apart blog tour with this review! Hurray! Here we go! This book knocked me on my ass, which is probably part of why it took me a while to write this review. So there will likely be a bunch of feelings in this review, and I’m not sorry about it. Don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of the post!
