He'll do anything to remember. She'll do anything to forget.



“How odd to be made of flesh, balanced on bone, and filled with a soul you've never met. ” 
My review of Never Never part one...
I've been meaning to read another Colleen Hoover book lately. When I picked up this book I knew I'd like it so I didn't even bother reading the summary before diving in. 
Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher deliver a book which is overflowing with mystery, intrigue and romance! Imagine a mixture of I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Notebook. The genre was really hard for me to define, this book is almost a mash up of multiple genres. But the romance, ahh it was magnificent!!

"I consider telling him the truth. That if I were dead like Snow Wh…

U.S vs UK vs German Editions
Glass Sword + The Girl From Everywhere What do you think? Personally I like the UK edition of The Girl From Everywhere. I prefer the tag line "A journey through time. A journey to love." Sounds much more romantic!

Rating: 1 Star

Lady Sara Emerson was jolted out of her dull provincial life by her cousin’s murder. Now that the killer seems to be targeting her, Sara seeks help from the man who was once her cousin’s fiancé, Gabriel Ferguson, Duke of Rossmoyne. With his towering frame and fiery personality, Ross cuts an intimidating figure. Living under his protection, however, has its own hazards—like the sudden urge Sara feels to take their relationship in new, exquisitely inappropriate directions.
Dazzled by the social graces of his betrothed, Ross never noticed her shy, blushing cousin. Looking at Sara now, though, he’s drawn to her lovely eyes and calm disposition. Funny how a year away from the hustle and bustle of the ton changes a man. But Ross has no intention of allowing a woma…

My Year In Books {2015 Edition}
Inspired by Carla @ Lipstick and Mocha
It's the first day of 2016! I wanted to take a moment and reflect back on the books I read in 2015. 


I set my reading goal at 50 books for 2015. Unfortunately I only made it to 45. I was definitely busier than I had planned. This coming year I plan on being a bit more realistic on my reading goals, but also managing my time better.

Here are my 2015 reading stats:
