Make sure to enter the Giveaway at the end of the post!
Title: Paintbrush

Author: Hannah Bucchin

Publication Date: July 11th, 2017

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Mitchell Morrison and Josie Sedgwick have spent their whole lives at the Indian Paintbrush Community Village, a commune full of colorful characters tucked in the mountains of North Carolina, and they aren’t particularly close–at least, not anymore. Josie wishes she could spend all of her time at Paintbrush planting tomatoes, hiking the trails, or throwing giant communal birthday parties, while Mitchell can’t wait to escape the bizarre spiritual sharing and noisy community dinners. Luckily for both of them, high school graduation is just around the corner.

But when Mitchell’s mother makes a scandalous announcement that rocks the close-knit Paintbrush community, and Josie’s younger sister starts to make some dangerously bad decisions, the two find themselves leaning on each other for support – and looking at each other in a whole new light. Their childhood friendship blossoms in to something more as they deal with their insane families, but as graduation approaches, so does life in the real world, forcing Josie and Mitchell to figure out what, exactly, their relationship is – and if it can survive their very different plans for the future.

Why I've Never Liked Love Triangles - Discuss & Wonder #8

Hello guys! It's been ages since I've posted a discussion on the blog and it's time to change that! I've been on a small reading slump the past couple of weeks and haven't picked up a book since finishing The Sea of Tranquility. Hopefully, I'll get back on track soon!

Today, I decided to talk about
It's probably one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to reading! I stay away from books that involve love triangles like the plague and if you want to know why, just keep on reading!

Nerd Blast - Ignite {Spelldrift: Coven of Fire #2} By Sierra Cross & Giveaway!

Make sure to enter the Giveaway at the end of the post!



Tile: Ignite

{Spelldrift: Coven of Fire #2}

Author: Sierra Cross

Publication Date: July 6th, 2017

Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal

I’ve only been living in the Magicborn world for a few weeks now. But when I’m yanked from sleep by a demon’s blade at my throat, I know we’ve got a problem on our hands. It’s not the run-of-the-mill Nequam demon, either, but a deadly Caedis. And someone sent him for me.


If that isn’t enough to deal with, the city’s most powerful spellcasters are turning up dead and the Fidei, the order that polices our kind, is sniffing around our coven. It’s no secret the Magicborn community has no love for our ragtag group, and now it looks like we’re being framed for murder. 

Keeping this coven out of prison is going to be a serious challenge, partly because of the secrets that I can’t bring myself to share with the others. My magic’s been malfunctioning. My dreams are being invaded. And my brain’s always spinning, wondering if Matt will ever break the archaic vow that stops him from admitting his feelings for me.

Can the only way out of this mess really be risky alliances with a dangerous vampire and a dark witch who’s betrayed me in the past?

Ignite, the second book in the Coven of Fire series by Sierra Cross, will have you turning the pages to get your fix of forbidden romance, dangerous alliances, and deadly magical secrets.

Book Blitz - More Than This By Clare James {Excerpt & Giveaway!}

Title: More Than This

{Impossible Love #2}

Author: Clare James 

Publication Date: November 25th, 2013

Genres: New Adult, Romance
MORE THAN THIS is a hot and hilarious STAND-ALONE romance from Clare James’ best-selling Impossible Love Series!

It’s all fun and games…until you live together.

I bite my lip when Foster’s tattoo peeks out from under his shirt. Yes, it is completely cliché. And yes, I do look like some kind of B-list p*rn star lusting after this man and going into heat every time he shows a little skin. But seriously, he is that delicious–which is why I occasionally succumb to his advances.

He’s also one of my best friends, so I really need to get it together.

I’m not the only one. Foster is a mess, trying to figure out his own crap–usually over whiskey Cokes–and it’s getting old. That’s why I’ve finally made a vow to forget him and find something real. But when I’m hurt in a ridiculous bar fight and left with broken bones, I have no choice but to let him move in and help me out.

It’s a roommates only situation. Really…well, until it isn’t.

*MORE THAN THIS is a full-length, stand-alone romantic comedy that can be read on its own, or as part of the Impossible Love Series.*

Monthly Blog Wrap-Up - June 2017

Welcome to another monthly reading wrap-up, here at Book Lady's Reviews! June wasn't the best month, where everything is concerned really, not just reading wise. The whole job thing didn't really work out and I've lost count of how many CVs I've handed out during the past couple of weeks! Apart from that, exam results were kind of shitty to say the least and overall, you could say that I'm kind of disappointed...

And I can not, for the life of me, find a book that I'm actually in the mood to read! Any recommendations? I really need something to blow my mind and anything you guys have immensely enjoyed would be more than helpful!

With that being said, I hope you find this post helpful and click on anything that might interest you! I'm pretty sure everything's going to be alright so, just have to be patient!

Elena Reviews A Re-read - The Sea of Tranquility By Katja Millay

Title: The Sea of Tranquility

Author: Katja Millay

Publication Date: November 2012

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay.

Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to.

The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.
