Let’s make this introduction short and sweet. This is all the books I am planning on reading in July. Hope you enjoy!
1. Lifeline by Abbey Lee Nash
I received this book from Tiny Fox Press to review. I am currently reading this and I am enjoying it so far. It is different from what I am used to reading. This is the story of Eli who is the captain of the lacrosse team and ends up overdosing at a party. This follows the story of Eli going into rehab and starting his recovery.

Here is my wrap-up for the last three months. I have been grouping my Wrap-Ups and TBRs into three-month chunks this year. Well, this is going to be the last time because starting in July I will go back to posting these monthly! YAY! Now that, that is said let’s talk about books.
1. As Old as Time by Liz Braswell
This is the third book in the A Twisted Tale series and this focuses on Beauty and the Beast where the twist is “What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?”. I was so excited to read this book because BATB (1991) is my favorite movie and I was curious to see how I would like this retelling. I did enjoy myself reading myself but I did not love it as much as I thought I would. If you want to read more about my thoughts check out my review! Continue reading “April,May, June Summary”
I just wanted to take the time to come on here and say that I have decided to get back to writing. Last year I did a few blog post about how I wanted to write a book and about starting that process. After a while, I stopped working on it and I basically wanted to Continue reading “Back to Writing”
I received an ebook of What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie from Black Rose Writing and this post will be my spoiler free review. Hope you enjoy.
“Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.
When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.
The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.” Continue reading “Review: What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie”

This post is going to be on my spoiler-free thoughts of Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella. Now, all of you should know that Sophie Kinsella is my favorite author. SO, when she comes out with a new book I buy it ASAP. I love Kinsella’s writing and I always have a good time reading her books. When I heard about Suprise Me I was super excited to read it.

Today’s post is an update on the book I have been working on. I am going to be covering naming my characters as well as figuring out what their occupation will be. That being said let’s just get right into it.
One thing that has taken me so long to do is name these characters. I have had their first names for a few weeks now but in the last few days, I have had to figure out their last names. Oh, boy was that a process! For my characters I wanted their first and last names to flow well together. Also, I wanted them not to have names that are used a lot, I wanted them to be at least a tiny bit original. Now, did I accomplish that goal? I have no idea but I am happy with the names that they ended up with…well at least for now. I have no clue if they will end up changing once I get to the actual writing of this book and truly discover who these characters are. Honestly, I am okay with that as long as I feel that by the end that I have found the best name for them I will be happy. I am so excited to actually get started on the book and see where these characters take me. Continue reading “Writing Update #3: Naming Characters and Occupation”
So, about a week or so ago I was watching a reality show and thought, “ This would be an interesting book, I would read it.” Then my wheels starting turning and I started to come up with ideas for the plot of the book. Now I am not going to tell you what the show is because it might give things away. I typed out a plot of what I wanted the story to be. I had some of my friends read the plot and they both thought it sounded interesting. Let me tell you I made sure they weren’t just saying that because they are my friends. They encouraged me to try and write this book. So that is exactly what I am going to do. Continue reading “Writing a Book?”
