Non Fake News #UseYourWords

Welcome to September's Use Your Words post. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: blue ~ fake ~ trust ~ file ~ head

I have been staring at these words for almost two hours. Now, admittedly, I was not staring constantly. I am also watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. It can be quite distracting. There are not many shows that I can get truly lost in, but Grey's is one of them. I already had a plan for my words, but I then when I sat down to put the post together, I suddenly didn't want to follow that plan. The problem is, I don't really have …

Misadventures of a City Girl #BookReview

I had the pleasure of reading a book from the Misadventures Series. This one was written by Chelle Bliss and Meredith Wild. Have you been able to read any of their books? I highly recommend you check them out, after you read this one. I was actually really excited when I discovered they teamed up to write this book, because I love their individual books. I had high expectations for this book, and it did not disappoint.
I loved everything about this book. I love the plot, the ending, and the characters. I also loved that it takes place in my backyard. I do love books a bit extra, when they take place in California (or one of the other places I have lived). The authors did an amazing job developing the characters. I love when an author enables you to fall for the characters in their books. When characters aren't developed well, I always feel empty at the end. Good character development really adds to the story.
This story was unique and entertaining. It was also steamy. So, if you …

Rescued by Lyz Kelley #BookReview #Giveaway

The time has come. The Elkridge series by Lyz Kelley has come to a close. Rescued was just released, and finally our questions have been answered. I will not be giving any spoilers, but if you want to discuss it, message me! 
Just like all the books before it, this book is amazing. It is well written, and will keep you satisfied and yet leave you wanting more. I am not even kidding. This entire series, each book has been written so well, and complete, that at the end I feel like that part of the story is finished. Yet, I still want more. More, more, more. More Elkridge. More citizens lives told. More updates on the citizens we know and love. More. 
Lyz Kelley is a truly wonderful writer. She has this amazing ability to tell great stories. She has built this entire community within these books, and she has develops the characters so well, that it almost feels like we really know them. Each book, on its own, is a complete and satisfying story, but combined they created a wonderfully su…

What's in a name? #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to September's Secret Subject Swap. This week ten brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Do you have a unique name? Were you named for someone? Who? Why? What does the name mean?
It was submitted by:Dawn of
Is my name unique? Julie? I don't think it is all that unique. It isn't extremely common either. I think it is a name everyone knows. Many people know or know of at least one Julie. I have met a handful of other women named Julie over the years. My middle name is Marie. It is definitely not unique or uncommon. My nickname is Jules. My mom started calling me Jules the moment I was born. Sometimes, I genuinely think she should have just named me Jules. I did not embrace Jules until I was into my teenage years. Prior to embracing it, I would c…

Fate by Audrey Carlan #BookReview

There are not many authors in this world, that I give blanket recommendations for. Very few indeed. Audrey Carlan has become one of the authors on that list. I read Fate the fifth book in her Trinity Series, and it just solidified my love for her work. This series is fantastic. Her books are fantastic. 
I loved Fate so much! In fact, when I was done reading it, I simply needed more of Audrey's writing, so I decided to finally read her Calendar Girl series. 
You need to read Fate. You truly do. You need to know Kat and Carson's story. You need to know so much more than that, so read the entire series. Start at book one and read them all. I know you will thank me later.
Audrey has this amazing way of building entire worlds with her books. Worlds full of amazing people, drama, romance, suspense, humor, happiness, sadness, and every other emotion. She tells complete stories, and her series are full of books that build perfectly on each other.
Read on for a synopsis of Fate, inform…
