December TBR



I seriously have no idea where this year has gone, so much has happened, some good and some terrible, but it's almost over.  Can you believe it?  

I haven't posted one of these in awhile, but I've been thinking about this blog and what I want it to be in the upcoming year. One of which is to revamp. So this next month I'm going to be changing up the posts and adding new things. Piece by piece I'm hoping it will all come together.  

The first step is changing up the posts, I want to get back to posting more and not just the same old same old either, I want some fresh new posts. I want to also share my life with you. So get ready readers, this upcoming year is going to be a fun one.  

Anyway, let's get back to sharing what we're reading.  Here is my list of books that I want to read this month.  First up are a few of the Christmas ARC's that I received from Netgally.




Twelve Days of Christmas by Debbie Macomber 
A Wedding for Christmas by Lori Wilde  


I'm Also Reading...



Unlucky in Love by Maggie McGinnis 
 Christmas in Paris by Anita Hughes

I'm hoping to get through all of these and maybe a few more. We shall see! So what are you reading this month?

Teaser Tuesday #103



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:




  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.


“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person's character aren't the mistakes we make. It's how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”













Picking a teaser from this book was hard to do, there are so many teaser quotes to pick from that are amazing! It Ends With Us is my first Colleen Hoover book that I've read and I think I've found a new favorite author. I'm loving this book so much!

Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Tear Jerker Movies






Top Ten Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.   It's mainly a topic based top ten posts where I'll be answering the question and showing off some books.  So if you would like to know more about this meme, CLICK HERE. 





I'm just going to list these and they aren't in any special order. Tear Jerker movies are some of my favorite kinds. They are jam packed full of feels and I just love them. If a movie can make me cry then it's a great one! So here's my list. 



  1. Me Before You  - I cried so hard during this movie, though I knew I would, so I had tissues with me. Like four packs! 
  2.  Fault In Our Stars - Another one that I knew before hand would have me crying like a baby. Thanks to the amazing book, I brought tissues for this one too. 
  3. The Outsiders - Again because of the book I knew I'd cry. This one is one of my all time favorites! I re-read this book every year and watch the movie! 
  4. PS. I Love You - Seriously, spoiler alert don't read this next line if you haven't seen this movie. One of my favorite actors dies in this movie, that alone makes me cry the rest is just a movie that kills me everytime. I love this movie! 
  5. Ladder 49 - This movie is one I will never forget. It didn't help that when I saw this in the theater I was married to a fire fighter and had been a fire fighter myself for several years. Basically this movie made want to stop being one and just take care of my kids.
  6. Bridge to Terabithia - Do I even have to explain this one? Like seriously I don't want to even think about this movie because just thinking about it makes me tear up. Another one of my favs. 
  7. The Best of Me - This movie is one that makes you fall in love with the characters. I cried so hard at the end. Even though I knew it was coming! 
  8. Man On Fire - I'm pretty sure I've seen this movie over a hundred times and I still cry every time! 
  9. Where the Red Fern Grows- I haven't watched this movie in a long time and it's because I know I'll cry my eyes out. I had to read the book when I was younger and I cried so much. 
  10. A Walk to Remember - Most of you know this movie and know why it's on the list. Another fav of mine though. I just watched it the other day. Oh and they added it to Netflix, not sure it's still on there but I watched it a few times when it first was added. Amazing movie full of feels. 

So there you go, 10 amazing feel worthy movies that made me cry. Love them all! I think if I put this list in order though Bridge to Terabithia and Me Before you would tie for number 1.  Hope you all have a great Tuesday!!

 "Where did he go?" asked Jaide. "I thought he was right behind us."  Jack blinked rapidly as a sudden gust of wind threw dust into his eyes.

It's Monday...What Are You Reading?






This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.  It's a meme where you share what you read last week, what you're currently reading and what you plan on reading that week. 




So it's been a bit crazy around here with my business taking off and I haven't really had time to blog lately, but that's going to change starting today. I have the whole week planned out and excited to be back to sharing my love of books with you. Below are my reading plans for the week. 


Today I'm Reading: 




Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

I'm going to finish this whole series this year. Well, that's the plan. So far I've loved the first two, it's time for the third! 



WHEN SILENCE IS ALL THAT'S LEFT, CAN THE TRUTH FINALLY BE HEARD?

Nora Grey can't remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been missing for weeks - with no one knowing where she was or who she was with - she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge mom's creepy new boyfriend.

But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows.

And this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.

Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to. He seems to hold all the answers...and her heart. Every minute she spends with him grows more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.




This Week I Plan To Read: 




Christmas in Paris by Anita Hughes 

I'm super excited to read this one. I love this author's books so much and can't wait to start it!  

 Hughes will fill your heart with the sights, sounds, and flavors of new love, glamorous fashion, and decadent holiday cuisine.

Isabel Lawson is standing on the balcony of her suite at the Hotel Crillon as she gazes at the twinkling lights of the Champs Elysee and wonders if she’s made a terrible mistake. She was supposed to be visiting the Christmas tree in the Place de la Concorde, and eating escargots and macaroons with her new husband on their honeymoon. But a week before the wedding, she called it off. Isabel is an ambitious Philadelphia finance woman, and Neil suddenly decided to take over his grandparents’ farm. Isabel wasn’t ready to trade her briefcase for a pair of rubber boots and a saddle.

When Neil suggested she use their honeymoon tickets for herself, she thought it would give her a chance to clear her head. That is until she locks herself out on the balcony in the middle of winter. Thankfully her neighbor Alec, a French children’s illustrator, comes to her rescue. He too is nursing a broken heart at the Crillon for the holidays. With a new friend by her side, Isabel is determined to use her time in the city of lights wisely. After a chance encounter with a fortune teller and a close call with a taxi, she starts to question everything she thought was important.

Christmas in Paris is a moving and heartwarming story about love, trust, and self-discovery. Set during the most magical week of the year, the glorious foods and fashions of the most romantic city in the world are sure to take your breath away.

Up Next: 

Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick 




I'm super excited about finishing one of the series that I've been wanting to read for awhile. So hopefully by the end of the month, I can mark this one off my list. Hope you all have a great Monday.
