The Goodreads Tag

Hello, lovelies! I have another fun tag for you today!

I saw this tag over on A Very Bookish Girl almost a year ago, but I saved the link because I knew I’d want to do it at some point.

Today is that day 😛

We all I know I love Goodreads, so let’s dig into my shelves with The Goodreads Tag!

Better When He’s Bad by Jay Crownover

4-stars
Overall Rating:4 Stars
Title: Better When He’s Bad
Author: Jay Crownover
Series: Welcome to the Point #1
Format: Audiobook purchased from Audible

Synopsis:
Welcome to the Point

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who’s bad . . . meet Shane Baxter.

Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he’s the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn’t care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there’s a new player in the game, and she’s much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.

Bax terrifies her, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.

Bookish Things I Love: April 2018

Happy Taco Tuesday, lovelies!

My husband is being wonderful and taking over bath time tonight, so I’m over here updating the blog with one of my favorite yet expensive posts (cuz half the time I end up buying the things I list).

Book update: I’m currently reading my very first CD Reiss book and I’m dying over how much I’m loving it.

Alright, onto the bookish goodness!

Blogger Recognition Award

Good evening, lovely friends! I’m sitting here in my library with my 5yo daughter while she does her homework. I love these quiet moments with her. I feel like it’s go, go, go all day during the week, it’s nice to sit down and relax together, working side by side.

Anyway, because I’m the slowest person ever, I’m finally doing this Blogger Recognition Award tag. I’m so grateful to have been recognized by two really kickass blogs for this award: Book Bosomed Blonde and Flying Paperbacks.

Give them a follow if you love books and great content!

Favorite Sports Romance Novels

For someone who has been reading romance novels since my teens, it’s kind of surprising that sports romances are fairly new for me. Especially considering my unhealthy obsession with Tim Tebow back in his college days.

Though I read a couple of sports romances before it, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata was the first sports romance that made me really appreciate this subgenre.

I love how inspiring these types of novels can be, reading about how hard these athletes work to be the best in their sport. (And, let’s face it, if there is a novel about it, then obviously the athlete is the best.)

In honor of that, I’ve put together a list of my favorite sports romance novels. Keep in mind that I have not read a ton by a long shot, but these are my favorites out of the ones I have read.

The Awesome Blogger Award

iscriblr_awesomeblogger

Happy Saturday, friends! I would say that it’s a nice relaxing Saturday over here, but that’d be a complete lie. Currently, my girls are playing (loudly) nearby and my husband has heavy metal blaring in the bathroom as he repairs something our shower.

I’m over here in my reading chair like

Anyway, what better time to do an Award tag?!

Thank you to The Cozy Pages for the nomination! Nina is absolutely worth a follow!

Mystery Blogger Award

Oh, hi there! I just finished a ridiculous workout in my garage, so I’m currently laid out in my bed wanting to die… and I thought to myself, “What better time to write the blog post that I forgot to post today!”

Anyway, the wonderful Ally over at Ally Writes Things nominated me for this award last month. Thank you so much, Ally!

If you aren’t following her already, you should get on it! I love, love, love her blog and you will, too!

Anyloo (yes, I just tried to make up a new word), let’s get on with the award, shall we?

Freebie: Velaris The Court of Dreams Tourist Graphic

Hey there, Friends!

This month’s freebie is in celebration of the upcoming release of A Court of Frost and Starlight! It’s a Velaris design.

My thought is, if I ever get a chance to meet Sarah J Maas again, I want to get this printed on an acrylic block and have her sign it as herself and as the Inner Circle. Is that weird? Oh, well…

Anyway, I’ve also uploaded this to my Redbubble store, so if you want to purchase it as a shirt or anything else, it can be done so through there!

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

5-stars
Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Title: Foolish Hearts
Author: Emma Mills
Format: Hard copy purchased from Amazon
Synopsis:
A contemporary novel about a girl whose high school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream leads her to new friends—and maybe even new love.

The day of the last party of the summer, Claudia overhears a conversation she wasn’t supposed to. Now on the wrong side of one of the meanest girls in school, Claudia doesn’t know what to expect when the two are paired up to write a paper—let alone when they’re both forced to try out for the school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

But mandatory participation has its upsides—namely, an unexpected friendship, a boy band obsession, and a guy with the best dimpled smile Claudia’s ever seen. As Claudia’s world starts to expand, she finds that maybe there are some things worth sticking her neck out for.

First of all… I need to thank Peachy over at Book Dragon Lair for introducing me to this book because… OMG I loved it SO MUCH!
