Synopsis:


When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

My Reading Habits Book Tag


I'm going to attempt to do a blog post every Thursday. Which is probably going to be some kind of tag. It may be book related, it may not be book related. The world may never know. Heck, I don't even know. I will always link where I found the tag. It most likely will not be the original post.

I found this tag from CornerFolds.

Some Things I Am Loving Right Now!

I think this is going to be a monthly installation on my blog. I feel like every month, I'm obsessed with something new. So why not share it with all of you lovely people?

I'm kind of in the process of making this blog more than just a book blog. I know that's not why most of you visit my blog. I just want more content and there's only so much you can do with a book blog. You could always just ignore my non-book related posts. That is 100% okay with me. I just want to be more interactive with everyone.

With that being said, I'm going to get into the things that I'm liking right now.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books You'd Mash Together

July Book Haul:


I got way too many books this month. This was not planned. I just cannot help myself. I have zero self control when it comes to buying books. Also, I apologize that you have to see my rug in this photo. I had to get further away just to get all of the books in one picture.

What books did you guys get this month?

BOOK TYPE:
Fantasy

PAGES:

Published March 6th 2018 by Simon Pulse

Purchase


Synopsis:


Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.

But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

July Wrap Up:


July was a great reading month for me. I read six books! This definitely makes up for my slack in the last few months. I read a mixture of things. YA contemporary, YA fantasy and even New Adult.

My favorite read of the month has to go to All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover. Such an emotional read. I loved it so much!

What books did you read last month? Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts on them?

I also switched my blog around (again) so don't mind the differences in the post.

Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas



Goodreads - Amazon - Kindle 

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Top 5 Tuesday: Books I've Read Because of Blogs/Booktube

I've found Top Five Tuesday. Made by the lovely Shanah over at BionicBookWormBlog. I've decided this is going to be better than the Top Ten. Most of the time, I don't have the time to come up with a list of ten things. This narrows my time down by half.

I've been around the book community for quite some time now. A little over two years, I think. Going through Booktube, Bookstagram and blogs have made a huge influence on what books I've read throughout the last two years. 

Here's my list of five books that I was introduced to by our lovely book community!

Book Review: All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover


Goodreads - Amazon - Kindle


Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

My Favorite... Thing To Do In The Morning

So, here I am again. Trying to be more productive on my blog. Let's see how long this one lasts. I just get bored with making lists and I honestly just don't have time. Now give a topic like this once a week, I think I can handle it.

I saw this post over at BookishlyRebecca and thought, why the heck not. Maybe my followers would like to know what I do first thing in the morning. Maybe they might even share what they do first thing in the morning as well?

This meme is hosted by Maureen's Books!

❀❀❀❀❀

I used to be a morning person. That was before I had my child. Now that's he's three, almost four, our morning routine is a bit drastic. (No, I do not cuss at my child. This GIF is just a representation of what goes on in my head.)


So, the first thing I do in the morning is putting on a video game or Youtube for my son so I can sleep for like and extra 30-45 minutes. 

If I had a favorite thing to do, that would be scrolling through Bookstagram and looking at all the beautiful pictures of books!

What is your favorite thing to do in the morning?

Books I'm Iffy About Picking Up Part Two:


Here's part two to the books I'm iffy about picking up. As much as I like spending money on books, there are just some books that I can't bring myself to buy but some part of me kind of wants to. Here are some books I don't know if I should buy or not!

Book Review: Empty by K.M. Walton


Goodreads - Amazon - Kindle


Dell is used to disappointment. Ever since her dad left, it’s been one let down after another. But no one—not even her best friend—understands all the pain she’s going through. So Dell hides behind self-deprecating jokes and forced smiles.

June Wrap Up:



I'm pretty upset with how much I didn't read this month. But, work was kind of busy this month and I've been all over the place.

What I did read, I enjoyed. I had a pretty decent reading month. Nothing was terrible, so that's always a good thing!

My favorite book this month was Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Such a great read!!!

I also finished What I Lost today, July 1st but I'm adding it here anyway.

I'm hoping next month is a better reading month. I'm not as stressed with everything right now so maybe I will!


Book Review: What I Lost by Abigail Ballard



Goodreads - Amazon - Kindle

What sixteen-year-old Elizabeth has lost so far: forty pounds, four jean sizes, a boyfriend, and her peace of mind. As a result, she’s finally a size zero. She’s also the newest resident at Wallingfield, a treatment center for girls like her—girls with eating disorders. Elizabeth is determined to endure the program so she can go back home, where she plans to start restricting her food intake again. She’s pretty sure her mom, who has her own size 0 obsession, needs treatment as much as she does. Maybe even more. Then Elizabeth begins receiving mysterious packages. Are they from her ex-boyfriend, a secret admirer, or someone playing a cruel trick?


June Book Haul:


I definitely acquired more books this month than I wanted to. Even though I enjoy buying books, I just don't have the space until I go buy another book shelf. Which is next on my to do list.

I got a decent variety of books though. I got most of them pretty cheap and I received The Gilded King for a review. So I didn't really spend that much. Minus the new releases. Those broke my pocket.

What books did you guys get this month? Which of these have you read and what did you think of them?

Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag


OMG, how are we already halfway through 2018?? All I know is, Christmas is halfway here and I'm too excited to decorate again. I need my tree back in my living room!

I feel like all I do is work and sleep these days. Although, I'm still ahead on my Goodreads challenge and I'm hoping to keep it that way. Maybe this will be the first year I actually complete a reading challenge.

This year has really been amazing so far. I went to Disney for the first time. I really went when I was like three, but I don't remember it so I don't count it. I got my first ever PAID vacation. I got a brand new car that I'm making payments on. Everything has really started to look up for us this year. Even better than last year.

I'm hoping the rest of the year gets even better for every single one of us!

Now, onto the topics!

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR


The original topic for this week is: Series I've Given Up On/Don't Plan To Finish. Currently, I have either finished all the series I've started or still plan to finish them. I hate giving up on series, I have to finish it until the very end!

I don't normally do TBR's because I let a randomizer choose what I'm going to read. So I'm going to list ten books that I want to read and hope they get chosen in my app!

I only chose three because I'm kind of in a time crunch and I gotta get going!
