31st - February 6th - What is your opinion of bibliotherapy? Do you think this is a useful way of dealing with psychological issues? If you've used it yourself, or know someone who has, what book(s) would you recommend? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)


I've never known anyone that's used this therapy treatment, but I honestly think it would help. I think it's a great way to help people. I mean come on, what does reading do for all of us. If reading can help someone I say that's awesome!!

Blog Tour Review: Tweet Cute




I am so thrilled to be part of this tour. As soon as I was asked to be part of this tour for Tweet Cute I jumped at the chance. I read the summary and knew I had to read this book right away!  Anyway, below you will find everything you need to know about this amazing book and its author, as well as my thoughts about the book. 

I want to thank both Emma Lord and Wednesday Books for letting me be part of this fantastic tour. 








Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Publisher: Wednesday Books
Published: January 21st 2020
Format: E-ARC
Pages: 368 pages
 A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected




If you didn't get the hint above that I love this book, well let's just say it again, I love this book. I loved the characters and really connected with Pepper. While reading you can tell the author really knew these characters and the writing just flowed.  I loved reading every single word of this book and it was such an easy and fun read. Which was just what I needed first thing this year. I needed a light and fluffy read, Tweet Cute fit that bill. 

Tweet Cute was the perfect HEA, one that had me giddy to continue till the last word. I read this one in one day and I didn't want it to end.  This was one easy and very believable read, one that teenagers and even us adults can connect with. Especially that guy that drives you insane. I'm pretty sure every teen girl has that one guy in their lives.  I know I did!  I can't wait to read more from this author and hope she has more coming very soon!

I loved the relationship even from the beginning. It was just perfection! I also loved the "You've Got Mail" feel about this one and that just made this book even better.  I couldn't get enough of this story and everything it had to offer. This was the perfect debut for this fantastic author. I highly recommend Tweet Cute to anyone who loves young adult contemporary romance, I know you will love this one. 

Also, I must note how much I love this cover as well, isn't it just the cutest thing? 







I'm so happy to give Tweet Cute my first....





Of the year!

 Nine windows, two doors, a wrap-around porch, and two balconies--that was just the face of our looming two-story Victorian on Juniper Street. The chipped blue paint and the dusty windows seemed to sing a violent song about the century of relentless summers and brutally cold winters that house had endured.











Alright, have any of you read this one? It's one that another friend of mine told me about and I'm not too sure about it so far.  I'm hoping I love it, but we shall see. I usually like author Jamie McGuire's books though so I'm pretty sure I will love it. Anyway, let me know your thoughts below but as usual, please no spoilers.

Life Update: I Broke My Thumb!






I just wanted to pop on and let you all know why I haven't been around lately. I had so many amazing posts scheduled to post, well scheduled to write then post. Anyway, I got a new job and ended up falling at work. I broke my right thumb and badly sprained my wrist. (I'm right-handed, if I didn't mention that.) I haven't been able to really type till now. I'm not really typing now, it's one finger typing right now lol. As of right now, I'm reading and just trying to heal.

I hope you all stick with me and just know I have a bunch of posts coming as soon as this heals and I can really type again.

24th - 30th - Do you talk to strangers about books especially when you see someone reading a book? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)
I actually do this all the time, especially in bookstores, which makes it a bit easier. Though I do this in the library all the time too. I love talking to people, though I am a bit cautious about it. Nowadays you have to be.  


So, do you ever find yourself talking to a stranger about books? Let me know in the comments below.

 In the uncomfortable plastic seat next to me, my mother, Joyce, saw me checking the time. She kept her voice low as she reached for my arm. "Happy birthday, Evie." "Don't," I grumbled and pulled my arm out of her reach.













This is a book that a friend of mine told me about and said I really needed to read, so of course, I picked it up and figured I would give it a try. Have you read this one? Let me know your thoughts please in the comments below, but please no spoilers!

17th - 23rd - Do you think that readers make better employees, as opposed to non-readers? Why or why not? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

I'm not really sure how to answer this one. On one hand, I'm a reader and I know I'm a great employee, but that doesn't mean someone who isn't won't be.  I don't really think being a reader or not has anything to do with it.






What are your thoughts on this one? I'm really not sure it makes a difference if someone is a reader or not. I would love to hear your thoughts though. Leave me a comment below.

 Catcalling me was a mistake that most of the customers and mechanics at Big Jim's Garage only made once. Unfortunately, the owner of this particular Dodge Ram was the type of person who put his paycheck into couping up a Dodge Ram. That--and the urinating stick figure on his back window--was pretty much the only forewarning I needed about the way this was about to o down.











So let's chat about this one, I've had this one on my TBR for a while now. Mainly because I loved her other book The Lovely and the Lost. You can check my review out for that book by clicking here. I know that the above teaser is more than two lines, but I just couldn't pick which two I wanted lol. Anyway, what are your thoughts? Have you read this one?

 10th - 16th - Do you have a reading challenge for 2020? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

My main challenge will be my Goodreads goal for the year. I have been setting it at 50 for the past couple of years and I'm pretty sure that's what I'm going to stick with. It's easy to reach and I normally go over, so that always makes me feel good. I'm not sure the others I want to do this year, just yet, but that will be in an upcoming post very soon!






So what about you, do you have any reading challenges you're going to participate in this year? If so, please let me know which ones so I might be able to figure out the ones I want to do lol. I seriously can't make up my mind this year. Honestly, I'm not even sure I want to do anymore other than my Goodreads goal.

And for a girl that'll live for eternity? That's scary shit. With bated breath, I prepare myself. You never know what fate awaits a monster like me. 













So have you read this one? I just started it and I'm loving it so far. I'll let you know my full thoughts in my upcoming review.

 3rd - 9th - Do you have any New Year's Blogging Resolutions? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I don't do resolutions really, I do set a few goals, but that's going to be in a whole other post this year. I'm going to try really hard to actually stick with them this year lol. My main one is to blog more often and of course, read more!  Another goal of mine is one that I've had the past couple of years and that is to stick to reading what I want to read. That way I don't get into another huge reading slump.



How about you, do you make any New Year's resolutions or do you have any goals for this upcoming year? I would love to hear yours, please leave me a comment below.
