MY REVIEW  

5/5 STARS 

     Oh this book. I read it last months and I'm still baffled with the ending. I didn't know whether to throw it or cry. This book sucked me in and didn't let go! I found my self reading into the early hours of morning. It's a real page-turner for sure. This book as a dual timeline between now and six years ago which was very intriguing because I wanted to know so badly what had happened! 

    Six years ago, Cassie Taylor and Ethan Holt Had unbelievable passion and talent. Both were incredible performers. They met at an audition for the most prestigious performing arts school in the country. Their chemistry landed them the lead roles in Romeo & Juliet after making it in. Not only that, they were falling in love. They fell hard too. Present day, Ethan and Cassie have made it huge in the industry as famous actors. Cassie is convinced she has moved on, until she is cast as lead in a big romance production with none other than Ethan himself. Cassie wants nothing to do with him, he had broke her heart, but Ethan will do anything to get her back. 

     We constantly switch back and forth in time. Back then, the love-hate relationship starts with just hate. We are left in the dark as to why and how he broke her heart until nearly the end. We only know he regrets it with everything in him. After finding out, we could only understand where Cassie stood trying so hard not to get attached or falling for his attempts to win her back.

     I applaud Leisa Rayven at all the tension she was able to create between the two. Not only did the main characters stick, I found myself LOVING the side characters. Her novel made me experience everything from tummy-hurting-laughter to sobbing to OMG WHY JUST NO!! *throws book* Ian's I loved every bit of it! It was such a good Swoonuary read because gah! Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

     When I was first asked to do this post, I had a completely different theme planned.

My 2018 in Books So Far...

Hello booklovers! I decided that a wrap up of what I have read in 2018 so far would be a great way to jump back into my blog! This year started out as amazing reading year for me already. While towards the end of February I did start to dwindle off some with reading, I am still happy with what I have accomplished so far! So without further ado...


JANUARY #1- Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I started off 2018 with some Graphic Novels. This one was so interesting and unique. Some of the stories gave me chills! I couldn't stop reading. IT was just the right amount of creepy and beautiful. The art was so amazing and I absolutely loved the color schemes.

1. The Room Where It Happens: A book world you would put yourself into


     The first answer that came to my head was Harry Potter, obviously. But, if I'm trying to be unique I would have to say the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, more specifically, The Night Court, for obvious reasons.

2. The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character


     Seriously why are all my answers automatically Harry Potter? I recently binge watched all the Harry Potter movies over Winter Break with my sister, so maybe that is why. Its no secret that Luna Lovegood is one of my favorite characters from the series…
