On The First Day Of Blogmas

My True Love Gave To Me…

One Christmas Tag.

Festive Christmas Book Tag. Originated by GirlReading on YouTube.

1. A fictional family you would love to spend Christmas dinner with.

The Garrett’s from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I would love to have Christmas dinner with Jase and his parents and all his siblings and of course Samantha and Tim. The Garrett’s are such a big family and they just seem like they would be fun to be around.

2. A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift.

For this I chose Tangled Graphic novels. There’s not really any bookish things I want as far as candles and stuff like that so I chose graphic novels instead.

3. A fictional character you think would make a perfect Christmas elf.

Tim from The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I just think Tim would make a good elf.  He has a great sense of humor and he’s really good with kids.

4. Match a book to it’s perfect Christmas song.


The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks and All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey. I just think the two go perfectly together.
5. Bah humbug, A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be on the naughty list.

Catherine from Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I loved this book and chose Cath because she is a bad bad girl and should be on the naughty list.

6. A book or fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserves to be put on the nice list.

Final Girls by Riley Sager. I haven’t heard a lot of good reviews for this book but I thought it was amazing and should be on the nice list. I also heard that this is being adapted into a movie so I’m really excited!

7. Red, Gold and Green, A book cover that has a wonderfully Christmas feel to it.

The Christmas Town by Donna VanLiere. This cover is the perfect Christmas time feel. There’s snow on the ground, there’s a Christmas tree in the truck, there’s lights and it’s snowing. It’s just perfect!

8. A book or series you love so much, you want everyone to find it under their Christmas tree this year so they can read it and love it to.

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich. I already used The Notebook and My Life Next Door so for this question I chose The Love Interest. I really loved this book and think it should be under everyone’s trees. I know there are some negative reviews but of course everyone has their own tastes in books and I personally enjoyed it.

That’s the Festive Christmas Book Tag and Blogmas Day One. 

Happy Holidays!

November Wrap Up

These are the books that I read in November. 

Fang Girl by Helen Keeble. This was a cute YA story about a newly turned teenage girl who is trying to figure out her life now that she is a vampire. It was funny and fast paced and I gave it 5 stars.

See Me by Nichols Sparks. I loved this book which was and given since I am a Sparks fanatic. I gave it 5 stars and I have a full review posted if you are interested.

Season To Taste by Natalie Young. This is an adult novel about a woman who kills her husband and eats him to hide the fact that she’s a murderer. Parts of this book were funny and other parts were kind of nasty. Lots of gory details and I loved it. I gave it 4 stars.

The Kid Table by Andrea Seigel. This was a cute read that follows a group of cousins over a year of family meals, in which they are still stuck at the kid table even though most are high school age. I gave it 4 stars.

Rotten Rapunzel by Anita Valle. This is the third book in the Dark Fairy Tales series and this one is a retelling of Rapunzel and take’s place almost 16 years after the ending of the second novel. 5 stars.

So that’s what I read this month. Even though I didn’t read that many books, what I did read I really enjoyed so that makes’s up for it in my opinion.

My Christmas Wish List

I don’t write lists anymore for Christmas but I usually get gift cards and money that I use for books and occasionally I’m asked what books I want. Today I thought I’d make a list of five books that I’d like to get for Christmas this year.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer. I loved The Lunar Chronicles and Heartless and I’m really excited to read something from Marissa Meyer that isn’t a fairytale retelling.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children Graphic Novel by Ransom Riggs. I loved this trilogy and I’m so excited to read it in graphic novel form.

Hollow City Graphic Novel by Ransom Riggs. Of course I need the sequel in graphic novel form as well.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West. I discovered Kasie West this year and have really enjoyed the books that I’ve read so far and this is another one that I am excited to read.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. This is a book that wasn’t even on my radar but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it so I really want to read this one.

Those are just a few of the books that I want this Christmas and I’m really excited to see what I add to my shelves this year!

Books I Think Would Make Good Movies & TV Shows

There are so many movies and TV shows out there that are based in books, some that I’ve watched and some that I haven’t really been interested in. I thought it would be fun to do a post about the books/series that I personally think would be good TV shows or movies. There were quite a few on my list so I narrowed it down to 8 books/series that I think would make good movies and 8 books/series that I think would make good TV shows. Most of them are Young Adult but there are a couple New Adult or Adult books as well.

Top 8 TV Series:

1. My Life Next Door & The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick.

Anyone who reads my blogs know how I feel about My Life Next Door! I think it would make the perfect TV show and adding in the story from The Boy Most Likely To would make it even better. I always want more Jase and Samantha.

2. The Wildflower Series by Alecia Whitaker.

I loved this series and I would love to see it as a TV show. Wildflower, The Road To You and The Way Back Home were incredible on their own but it would be amazing to put them together and add in new stuff to make it a series for TV.

3. Feuds & Torn by Avery Hastings.

This duology was fantastic. There is also a short novella that takes place before Feuds. I would love to see this story play put on the screen. It reminds me a little bit like a mix of Divergent and The Hunger Games and I enjoyed both of those movie trilogies.

4. Rules Of Summer & Since Last Summer by Joanna Philbin.

I really loved the first book and I enjoyed the sequel, just not the ending. I think that’s why I would love to see this as and series, even if it was just a Summer series. 

5. The Vampire Kisses Series by Ellen Schreiber.

This is my all time favorite vampire series ever. I love the characters and the sweet story and I loved the ending of the series so much. I just want more and more of this series. There are also a few graphic novels based on the series as well, which are just as awesome.

6. Wrecked & Reckless by Elle Casey.

I love stories where people are stranded on deserted islands for some reason. I just think it’s fun to see what kinds of things they come up with to help them survive. This duology where 4 teenagers are stranded is by far my favorite. It’s a story about friendship and love as well as survival. There is romance, humor and even a little danger. I think this would be a great TV series.

7. The Hazards Series by Alyssa Rose Ivy.

This is a New Adult series that follows college freshmen and sophomores as they navigate school and relationships. Each new story follows a different girl but characters from previous books make appearances as well. I love the series and want a TV show so bad. The series includes The Hazards Of Skinny Dipping, The Hazards Of A One Night Stand, The Hazards Of Sex On The Beach, The Hazards Of Mistletoe and The Hazards Of Sleeping With A Friend. The Hazards Of Sex On The Beach is my favorite because I love Cara and Chase.

8. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.

This series is amazing. Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter are all retellings of the classic fairytales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White. Scarlet is my favorite of the series and I am in love with Wolf! I would love to see this as and series on TV.

Top 8 Movies:

1. Final Girls by Riley Sager.

I love horror movies more than any other genre and I loved this book that read almost like a slasher film. I would love to see this turned into a movie.

2. The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich.

I fell in love with this novel when I read it. The love story, although not your typical love story was so beautiful. Caden and Dylan are amazing characters and I would love to see them come to life on the big screen.

3. Reality Boy by A.S. King.

I loved this book more than I thought I would. It was an unexpected favorite and I would love to see it as a movie.

4. Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough.

This was such a good book. I loved the ending so much. It was shocking and left me speechless. I couldn’t get this book out of my head for days and I think a movie would be amazing.

5. The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena.

This is another book that I loved more than I thought I would. I loved the story another day the ending was amazing. Another shock that I didn’t see coming.

6. The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.

I have become a fan of Ruth Ware. I love her writing and storytelling. Her endings are amazing and I’m always surprised because I always think I have it figured out. I’ve always loved watching movies that take place on boats, especially murder mysteries and I think this would make a perfect movie.

7. See Me by Nicholas Sparks.

Nicholas Sparks already has several books that have been made into movies and I love every single one of them. I have no doubt that all of his books will one day make it to the big screen but I really want See Me to be the next one. This is the first full on mystery novel that he’s written and I loved it and want to see it so bad.

8. The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell.

This was such an amazing and heartwrenching book. 17 year old Sora has ALS and that’s all I needed to know to read this book. I think this would make a great movie and it brings up so many issues and concerns that I think would help people that are experiencing ALS themselves or that has a loved one that is. This would definitely be a movie you would need tissues for.

So those are my top choices for books that I think would make good movies or TV shows. Many of the books I have reviews for if you are interested in knowing more about them or my thoughts.

Book Review: See Me by Nicholas Sparks

See Me by Nicholas Sparks is an adult mystery romance novel. It’s also the first time that he’s written a mystery driven story.

See Me follows Maria and Colin. Maria is a lawyer who comes from a big loving family who are very supportive and want nothing but the best for her, while Colin on the other hand didn’t have the best upbringing. His parents had no interest in parenting him and he was bounced from one military school to another. He was bullied and had anger management issues as well as many encounters with the cops. He takes up MMA fighting and works out regularly to keep his anger at bay. Eventually Colin and Maria meet each other and end up dating, but soon after Maria starts getting threatening notes and begins to worry about her safety as well as the safety of Collin and her family.

If you’ve read enough of my blogs then you know that Nicholas Sparks is by far my favorite author of all time. I love everything he writes and See Me is another one that I can add to my list of favorites.

Of course I loved the romance. Nicholas Sparks has a way with words and I just fall in love with the characters and their romances everytime I read one of his novels. Colin and Maria are so different and it’s not about money or social class, Maria is a hardworking lawyer who comes from a good family and who always tries to do the best thing and Colin is a hot head who is just figuring out what he wants to do with his life and how exactly he wants his life to turn out, he also ha’s minimal contact with his family. I love that these two people who are so different come together and create something amazing. Maria at one point tells Colin that if she had known about his past she would have stayed away. I love when people get a second chance to show someone how they can be.

I loved the characters and how each of them brought something new to the story. Maria’s parents and sister were just like any family. They were realistic and I love that in a novel. I enjoyed seeing the sisterly relationship between Maria and Serena. I loved the friendship between Colin and Evan and Lily. Colin and Evan were good friends and he was there for Colin when everyone else had given up on him. Evan’s fiance Lily was almost like a sister to him and I loved the scenes between the two of them. I even liked Maria’s creepy boss Ken. He’s the type of man you love to hate. I thought the mystery stalker was perfect.

As for the mystery element, I have to say I wasn’t sure about it beforehand. Nicholas Sparks is known for his romance and drama so I wasn’t sure how he would be as a mystery writer, but it was perfection. There was just the right amount of romance and drama and mystery and I loved it. I think it was the perfect book and especially great for his first mystery novel. I never should have questioned him!

Finally, the ending. I was surprised by the identity of the stalker. I thought I knew in the beginning who it was going to be but then too much focus was put on that person so I thought it was someone else but I was wrong. I did figure out who it was around the same time that someone in the book figured it out so I didn’t know until the end which I love in a mystery. The whole story came together perfectly at the end and I enjoyed it so much.

Another 5 star read for Mr. Sparks and I highly recommend it of course.

Reputation Book Tag

Taylor Swift and Books. My two loves. Here is the Reputation Book Tag. I love this album so much and have been listening to it on repeat for a week! The original tag was created by tulipswift on YouTube.


1. Ready For It?- Your favorite first book in a series.

Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber. This series is just a cute vampire romance series and I love it. I have a review of the last book in the series as well as short reviews for the other books posted on my blog.

2. End Game- The biggest end game you’ve ever rooted for.

Caden and Dylan from The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich. I wanted them together since their first meeting and I was kind of hoping for it since reading the synopsis. I have a spoiler free review posted if you want to know more about this book.

3. I Did Something Bad- A book you spoiled for someone.

Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher. I don’t really spoil books because I’m really the only reader in my circle but I’m going with this one just because I kind of spoiled the Netflix show while talking about the book. I have reviews up for the book as well as the Netflix show.

4. Don’t Blame Me- The most embarrassing/unlikely book you were crazy for.

Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L. James. Yes I admit I like this series and I’m ashamed! It’s not the most well written and it won’t be a literary classic but it is cheesy and corny and sometimes funny. It’s just a nice guilty pleasure.

5. Delicate- A book you fell in love with from the very first page.

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. This shouldn’t be a surprise since I talk about this book ALL the time. I fell in love with this book after reading the first sentence!

6. Look What You Made Me Do- A character that rose up from the dead. (Figuratively. They came back 2.0)

Quincy from Final Girls by Riley Sager. Quincy was the lone survivor of a mass murder when she was in college and she could have let that rule her life but as an adult she made a life for herself and didn’t let her tragedy take over. I have a review up on my blog.

7. So It Goes…- A series that made everything else disappear.

The Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children series by Ransom Riggs. I really loved this series, so much more than I thought I would. I read the first one and then just had to continue. I have reviews for all three books posted on my blog.

8. Gorgeous- A character so gorgeous they make you want to sink and drown and die.


Wolf from Scarlet by Mariska Meyer. Scarlet is my favorite book in The Lunar Chronicles and Wolf and Scarlet are my favorite couple. Wolf just seems like such a man. He’s strong and romantic and he just cares so much about Scarlet. I have a spoiler free review of the series up on my blog as well as a spoiler review talking about all the fairy tale elements throughout the series.

9. Getaway Car- A book or series you abandoned.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I started reading this but couldn’t really get into it so I tried the audio book and I still just didn’t care for it so I skimmed a lot of it.

10. King Of My Heart- Your OTP (one true pair)

Jase and Samantha from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. This is one of my favorite books this year and they are my favorite couple out of all the YA books that I’ve read so far. Of course there is a review posted on my blog.

11. Dancing With Our Hands Tied- A character you would stick by through an avalanche.

Gerald from Reality Boy by A.S. King. He went through so much as a kid and all he really needed was for someone to be there for him. Review is posted for this book as well.

12. Dress- Characters you don’t want to be best friends (meaning friends that you want to see a romance between)

This one was hard for me because I haven’t really read any books with any friendship that I wish turned into something more. I chose Iko and Kinney from Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer. Even though they really aren’t even friends, Kinney actually kind of hates Iko, I think they could end up being friends and maybe Iko could have a little romance one day…

13. This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice things- A book you physically ripped or damaged.

I try to be good to all of my books but I do buy some used books so those can have a little wear but The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold I’ve had for a long time and it’s been through a lot.

14. Call It What You Want- A book you finally finished this year.

The Last Star by Rick Yancey. I fell in love with The 5th Wave series and wanted to read the conclusion as soon as it came out. I ended up not buying it for over a year and then still waited a little bit before reading it. I was really disappointed with the ending though.

15. New Year’s Day- A book related memory you will always hold on to.

I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve experienced with my blog. I’ve gotten some nice comments and recommendations. I’ve also read some really good books that other bloggers have talked about.

Bonus- What are your favorite songs off Reputation?

I love them all but if I have to chose I’d say Ready For It, Gorgeous, Call It What You Want, Getaway Car and King Of My Heart.

I tag everyone who wants to do it. Have fun!

My Thrill Club and My YA Reading Club are boxes from the same company and I never got my June YA Reading Club box and I’ve been sending emails and something always happened and I never got it. Well finally this month it was all sorted out and they spent me the box but instead of the YA box they sent me the Thrill box instead, which I am even happier about since I prefer that box anyway.


Brood by Chase Novak. This is actually the sequel to Breed, which I haven’t read but it’s about a couple who go to a fertility doctor and they have twins, but then the parents turn into animals or something like that. It sounds interesting but I definitely want to read the first book before I read Brood.

The Necromancer’s House by Christopher Buehlman. Andrew is a recovering alcoholic and a practicing warlock. He is also able to speak with the dead through film. His house is a maze of booby traps and escape tunnels. He has known that magic is a brutal game that requires blood sacrifice and a willingness to confront death. His many years of peace and comfort have left him soft, he is more concerned with maintaining false youth than he is with seeing to his own defense. Now a monster straight from the pages of Russian folklore is coming for him, and frost and death are coming with her.

Movie: Amityville II: The Possession. I haven’t seen this moview either but I believe it’s the sequel to the original Amityville Horror.

Those are all the books that I got in October and November. I cancelled My YA Reading Club and will probably cancel one or two more in January when the prepay is up because I have to get some of my TBR down, it is massive!
