Bright Side by Kim Holden

BRIGHT SIDE by Kim Holden

The blogosphere has been raving about this book.  From Totally Booked to Tough Critic Book Reviews, the reviews thus far have fantastic.  I’m going to read this very soon!  The story is about a woman named Kate who moves to a new town to start college. Her life has been fraught with tragedy yet she reams optimistic, which is why her best friend Gus calls her “Bright Side.” Falling in love isn’t part of her plan, but she falls hard for Keller Banks.

I love reading the Top Ten Tuesday feature on blogs. A couple of weeks ago one of the topics was the “Top 10 books that people have been telling us that we must read.”

Fic Fare has a GREAT list.  A couple of my MUST-GET-TO books are on there!

THIS IS FALLING by Ginger Scott was just released a couple of days ago.  Andrea from The Bookish Babe shared a guest post that Ginger Scott wrote about what inspired the story and it was FANTASTIC.  Go read it!!


Hydraulic Level Five by Sarah Latchaw has been on my TBR for awhile. I really want to read it because the reviews have been great.  The sequel, SkyGods was just released.  Check out the Sarah Latchaw’s guest post over at Reading Is My Breathing in which she takes you on a tour of the places that inspired the books.

I had to bring attention to this awesome post that Anna Reads did.  I am in awe of it.  If I could marry a post, it would be this one.  She takes you on a tour of all the places visited in Stephanie Perkins’s Anna and the French Kiss series.  How freaking awesome is that?!?

I am a music fanatic and I love the scores to soundtracks. Book Riot complied a list of movie soundtracks and songs based on books.  Thank heavens for Spotify!

“I found myself physically clutching my heart and sobbing over this warm and loving young man. Lexi. Oh Lexi, my darling damaged little pixie. How I loved this girl. Her struggles and her feelings for Austin, her words and the sorrow in her heart…..dear god, I felt for this fragile girl.”

RUIN AND RISING by Leigh Bardugo

What If by Rebecca DonovanWHAT IF by Rebecca Donovan
Reviewed by Three Chicks and Their Books – 4.5 stars

“Throughout the course of this book I was constantly thinking ahead as to what the ending could possibly be…I scared myself with some of the scenarios because Ms. Donovan’s stories take on a breadth of emotions and you can never be too certain that the story will go the way you think.”
