First of all, HOW IS IS IT SEPTEMBER? Second of all, I am officially a BOTM YA Affiliate! Which means it's discussion time about this months selections, what I recommend getting (hint: this month is KILLING IT with great picks) and what I ended up picking up this month. It goes without saying that this post will include my affiliate link and if you are new to joining BOTM YA, and join using my link, I will earn commission from you joining. Do not feel pressured to join using my link, of course.

This feature will be a monthly post that happens within the first week of every month. 


Blog Tour, Photo Journal + Mood Board: The Prom by Saundra Mitchell, Bob Martin, Chad Beguelin and Matthew Sklar

6:30 AM

There are two things I love above all else music(al theatre) and literature. When they are combined? I will probably burst out into a musical number. I'm all sparkly prom dresses and songs right now just thinking about The Prom. My review will follow later this week, but until then--I'm so ecstatic to be participating in the blog tour. And, as a side note, to those who are concerned: the finished copy does NOT change any of the characters sexuality--I know this was a concern earlier on via the ARC!

Tag, You're It! | Romance Book Tag

1:34 AM

I tried to write a little introduction for this post but in the end all I did was hum, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" because that's how my mind operates. Also, I'm too excited to write something witty.

Top Ten Tuesday: What Books Would Be Called on Wish (#55)

11:07 PM

This weeks topic was Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library but for some reason, I was binge watching Wish Hauls on Youtube and found myself thinking: "What would certain books be called on Wish?" and once you go down that slope, there's really no going back. You're all in.

Book Blitz + Giveaway: The Bar Next Door by Katia Rose

6:30 AM

Get ready for an all-new contemporary romance series, Barflies, and its first installment The Bar Next Door. As a millennial who can't say no to some neon lights/signs, this cover is giving me SO much life. I have a good feeling about this one, guys, and can't wait to get my hands on it!

Sunday Post #5: The One with Dreamy Music and A LOT of Book Mail

4:55 PM

Another week where I actually did pretty decently with churning out new content for the blog (I am PROUD but have to wonder when I will slip out of this little groove), watched way too many ghost hunting/paranormal shows, changed my Instagram theme/editing style and have been listening to Taylor Swift non-stop.

Jane Cobalt Takes the Spotlight and MY WHOLE HEART | Review: Tangled Like Us by Krista & Becca Ritchie

7:45 PM

There are some traditions in my life that I will always honor: two cups of coffee before existing, putting Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving, rereading Harry Potter in the autumn, watching Doctor Who Christmas specials on Christmas Day with my dad, wax poetic about Rent in front of complete strangers and duck behind trash cans when spotting people from high school.

The most important tradition, however, is buying every single book that Krista and Becca Ritchie release. And then babbling incoherently about it online. In the words of Jane Cobalt, "It seems we are dreadfully tangled, you and I."

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Tropes (#54)

Happy Tuesday! Or as my brain likes to say: Happy Three More Days Until Friday! (This is why I don't make jokes. I don't know how to funny or who allowed me to try.) It's that time again! Top Ten Tuesday! And this weeks topic? Favourite tropes. Buckle up, kiddos. It's time to discuss.
