I have come to realize that I miss book blogging! This is something I used to love doing, and I really need to get back to doing things that I love. To kick it off, I went on a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick up some books to get me back into the swing of things.

Buy The Book• Goodreads







Date rape—from the accused’s point of view—is the subject of this “finely crafted and thought-provoking page-turner” (SLJ), a National Book Award Finalist from Printz Honor–winning author Chris Lynch. Now available in a tenth-anniversary edition.
Keir Sarafian may not know much, but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that he is a good guy. A guy who’s a devoted son and brother, a loyal friend, and a reliable teammate. And, maybe most important of all, Keir is a guy who understands that when a girl says no, she means it. But that is not what Gigi Boudakian, childhood friend and Keir’s lifelong love, says at all. What Gigi says seems impossible to Keir—something inexcusable—the worst thing he can imagine, the very opposite of everything he wants to be. As Keir recalls the events leading up to his f…

Hi everyone! Sorry again for the long time, no talk....I'm done coming up with excuses though! I'm really going to try to stay more committed to this again because I have recently realized how much I missed reading. Yesterday I took a trip to the bookstore and bought three books; one of which I have already read, and the review will be up very shortly. Here are the books!





Only three for me this week due to the fact that I am starting up once again. Thank you so much for your patience with me everyone, it's good to be back.

New Year, New Commitment (STS)

Hi everyone! I know it has been SO LONG since the last time I've posted but that is simply because life has gotten in the way. As a teenager, I'm going through classes at high school as well as getting things such as my license. But with a new year, comes a new commitment. I miss reading and blogging about all the great books out there. Instead of the typical stacking the shelves post, I would really appreciate it if you all could comment below some new awesome reads for me! I've been so out of the loop for so long, I'm not even completely sure what is out there. Thank you all for sticking around and I promise I'll get back to my usual routine.

     I do have a few little Nook book finds to share with you all though. This week I downloaded four new books to my nook (all free) because I really need to get back into reading!

Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore | Review

Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore
Published by Point on January 28, 2014
Pages 320
Format Hardcover
Source Publisher
Goodreads• B&N









The year is 1911. And at The Manor, nothing is as it seems . . .

Lady Charlotte Edmonds: Beautiful, wealthy, and sheltered, Charlotte feels suffocated by the strictures of upper-crust society. She longs to see the world beyond The Manor, to seek out high adventure. And most of all, romance. 

Janie Seward: Fiery, hardworking, and clever, Janie knows she can be more than just a kitchen maid. But she isn't sure she possesses the courage -- or the means -- to break free and follow her passions.

Both Charlotte and Janie are ready for change. As their paths overlap in the gilded hallways and dark corridors of The Manor, rules are broken and secrets are revealed. Secrets that will alter the course of their lives. . . forever.


MY THOUGHTS:
    Usually I am not such a fan of the old time historical fiction with girls all dressed up in the gorgeous dresses and f…
