Movin On Up!





movedI decided to buy a domain name and move from (which is hosted) to a self-hosted website. This will give me more control over the design and features, so I can hopefully make the blog an awesome place to be.



Review: Very Wicked Beginnings by Ilsa Madden-Mills

very wicked beginningsI realized too late that I probably should have read Very Wicked Things before I read Very Wicked Beginnings. I thought it was simply the second in the series, not a prequel that was published after the second book. #Oopsie.

However, now that I’m looking, I’m still really confused. In some places it lists the two books as Briarcrest Academy #2 and #3, and elsewhere #1.5 and #2. So I guess it’s an easy mistake to make. Plus, it was on sale for the great price of $0.00 and I’m still waiting on a loan for Very Wicked Things to come through via


Let me preface this by saying that it took me until about 40% to really get into Very Bad Things, so I was hesitant to read this. I hadn’t quite decided if I wanted to continue the series, but since I knew the books was short and free, I figured why not?

Ugh, I’m really rambling. Sorry. This review might become as long as the novella if I don’t reign it in.

Ready, set, focus.

Rating: 4 stars

Recommended for: New adult fans, and obviously anyone who’s enjoyed previous books in the Briarcrest Academy and looking for something to read in one sitting.

OMG! Sweet Filthy Boy Scene from Ansel’s POV

sweet filthy morning after quoteOnce this blog is more substantial and I have more posts on here, one thing will become abundantly clear:

Christina Lauren books are my everything. They are my favorites. I want to be their BFF.

If you’re judging me, I’m assuming it’s just because you haven’t read any of their books. The Beautiful Bastard series is one I recommend to every person I meet that has ever enjoyed a romance book. (Sidebar: my sister calls me a media pusher…always telling people what to read, watch listen to, etc. She says it’s usually annoying.)

I don’t take offense if I recommend a book to a friend and they don’t like it. Unless that book was by Christina Lauren. Then…friendship over, pretty much.

Which is why I feel like it would’ve been okay to publish a blog post with one sentence, and one sentence only:

Christina Lauren published a scene from Sweet Filthy Boy from Ansel’s POV.

Review: The Wild Side by R.K. Lilley

the wild side

As a huge fan of R.K. Lilley, I was really excited for The Wild Side. The excerpt I read also really intrigued me because everything seemed mysterious.

I did enjoy it, but not as much as I was expecting to.

Rating: 4 stars

Recommended for: Fans of erotica (this book really is basically nothing but sex), anyone looking for a book with little commitment or looking for something to read between longer books (I finished this in an hour and a half).
