The time it was about Girl Against the Universe

I was lucky enough to read an early draft of Girl Against the Universe last year because I’m a spoiled brat Paula was looking for someone who lived in SoCal to read it and see if it made sense. I devoured it, loved it, and named it one of my top 5 books for 2015.  Oh and when you get to the part about the California burritos? Yeah.  You’re welcome. So of course when it came time to be on […]

The time it was Top Ten Tuesday {11}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is: Ten of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads. I just went right to Goodreads and went backwards on my “read in 2016” shelf. 1. The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry — I just finished this book the other night and I’m still thinking about it. It was absolutely stunning and made me want to pick it right back up as […]

The time it was about Dr. Hottie

The time it was about Dr. Hottie

Once upon a time, Paula Stokes emailed me and asked for some info about living in SoCal for a book she was working on. Of course I shared my love for California burritos, some touristy-landmark type places, and maybe a few popular clothing trends.  Flash forward a few months later and she offered the book for me to read for authenticity. I ended up devouring the book and looooooving it. The story is amazing, the characters are people I want […]

The time it was Top Ten Tuesday {6}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Let’s just disregard the fact that today is Wednesday… This week’s topic is: Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors 1. Michelle Hodkin — She had me at the first page of Unbecoming, but throw in Noah Shaw {he’s mine, I have proof} and I’m like putty in her hands.  Mindfuckery is one of my favorite things to read and Michelle is a master of it.  I can’t wait […]
