Published: November 1, 2016
The Book Depository

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage of Opposites and The Dovekeepers comes a soul-searching story about a young woman struggling to redefine herself and the power of love, family, and fate.

Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate. Her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt.

What happens when a life is turned inside out? When love is something so distant it may as well be a star in the sky? Faithful is the story of a survivor, filled with emotion—from dark suffering to true happiness—a moving portrait of a young woman finding her way in the modern world. A fan of Chinese food, dogs, bookstores, and men she should stay away from, Shelby has to fight her way back to her own future. In New York City she finds a circle of lost and found souls—including an angel who’s been watching over her ever since that fateful icy night.

Here is a character you will fall in love with, so believable and real and endearing, that she captures both the ache of loneliness and the joy of finding yourself at last. For anyone who’s ever been a hurt teenager, for every mother of a daughter who has lost her way, Faithful is a roadmap.

Review: The Bad Boy Bargain by Kendra C. Highley

The Bad Boy Bargain
The Bad Boy Bargain
by Kendra C. Highley
Published: November 14, 2016

Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies’ man, fearless outfielder… Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.

Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn’t it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it’s time to let a little bad into her life.

Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer—dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer—is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, “dating” Kyle will silence the rumors.

But Faith’s plan threatens to expose Sawyer’s biggest secret of all…and that’s a risk he’s not willing to take.

November TBR

We only have less than two months left before 2016 ends and I am still far from reaching my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal. At this point it is safe to say that I am going to fail it. For the first time in 5 years I am going to fail my Goodreads Reading Challenge!!! *insert sad faced emoji* This sucks.

Even so, I am not losing hope. I may not be able to read 100 books this year but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop reading (never gonna happen). I am still trying my best to beat this annoying reading slump that's taken hold of me since May (seriously, longest reading slump EVER). It wasn't really that I am not in the mood to read AT ALL. It's just that I can't seem to finish the books I am reading. I have started SO many books this year that I wasn't able to finish for some reason. Not officially a DNF (did-not-finish) that I don't plan to finish ever, more like a I-lost-interest-so-maybe-next-time. So this month's goal is to finally pick up and FINISH all those books that I have left... well, unfinished.

(American Royalty #1)
by Nichole Chase
Published: October 4, 2016
The Book Depository

From the bestselling author of Suddenly Royal comes the first in a sparkling new series about America’s favorite royal—the First Daughter.

Everyone makes mistakes, especially in college. But when you’re the daughter of the President of the United States, any little slip up is a huge embarrassment. Maddie McGuire’s latest error in judgment lands her in police custody, giving the press a field day. Agreeing to do community service as penance and to restore her tattered reputation, Maddie never dreams incredibly good looking but extremely annoying vice president’s son, Jake Simmon, will be along for the ride.

Recently returning from Afghanistan with a life-altering injury, Jake is wrestling with his own demons. He doesn’t have the time or patience to deal with the likes of Maddie. They’re like oil and water and every time they’re together, it’s combustible. But there’s a thin line between love and hate, and it’s not long before their fiery arguments give way to infinitely sexier encounters.

When Jake receives devastating news about the last remaining member of his unit, the darkness he’s resisted for so long begins to overwhelm him. Scared to let anyone close, he pushes Maddie away. But she isn’t about to give up on Jake that easily. Maddie’s fallen for him, and she’ll do anything to keep him from the edge as they both discover that love is a battlefield and there are some fights you just can’t lose.

October 2016 Reads + Monthly Recap

These past weeks have been busier than usual. I've been out of town a lot and didn't really get a chance to spend valuable time with my laptop. I missed quite a few blog posts I've been meaning to do and for that I am sorry. I will do my best to catch up as soon as I can especially in reviews! Megosh. Adulting is exhausting *LOL*

Anyway, it's already November and what-the-heck I am still in a reading slump. I can't believe I've been in a reading slump for more than half of 2016! It's very frustrating.

October Reads

I was only able to read four books this October. I actually started reading more than that but I didn't get to finish them because, as I have said, buuuuusssy :(
