Currently Reading...

I am always reading multiple books at one time. No exaggeration, it is at least 5 books or more on any given day! I have a hard time dividing my attention between novels, especially when I have become immersed in so many amazing stories. Do you guys read multiple books at one time, or do you prefer to start/finish a novel before moving on to the next? Feel free to comment at the bottom! I'd love to hear from you all!!

Currently I'm reading...


The Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster phenomenon continues in the first heart-pounding new adult romance in The Maddox Brothers series.
Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.
Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.
Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.
As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.
In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush they felt readingBeautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.


I will post a full review once I've finished, but until then here is an update!
I've read almost 3/4 of this 320 page beauty in less than 1 day! So far I am loving the characters. I feel like Jamie McGuire has some really well developed characters and sub-characters in her novels. I adore that this book has snips of A BEAUTIFUL DISASTER, and that we can see Travis and Abby from different prospective throughout this novel. This is a must read for any Jamie McGuire fans!

To New Yorker Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic, and wholly unknown. But when tragedy strikes, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where her sister and aunt have built their lives and where centuries of family secrets await her. Once there, Rosa wastes no time falling head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both intrigue and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.
Ancient myths brought to life in the Sicilian countryside, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a long history of familial bloodlust prove to Rosa that she can’t trust anyone—not even her own family. Torn between loyalty to her aunt and love for her family’s mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love . . . or run as far and as fast as she can.

This book is not what I expected when I picked it up at my local BAM. I was really excited about this book for the "mafia" tones in the novel, and was surprised when the **SPOILER** shapehifter aspect surfaced!  **SPOILER**

This is a really cool book with an interesting twist on the normal fantasy YA books. I definitely recommend so far!

The last current read I will post today is, 


For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. At least, not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and probing eyes, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust—she can’t decide whether she should fall into Patch’s arms or run and hide from him. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth more unsettling than any feeling Patch evokes. For Nora stands amid an ancient battle between the immortal and those who have fallen—and choosing the wrong side will cost her life.


This is my third time re-reading this book! I love the storyline and I identify so much with the protagonist, Norah Grey. It also holds a special place in my book heart, because Patch was one of my first book boyfriends! For whatever reason, I never read any of the following 3 books in the Hush Hush series. Reading the entire series has now become a summer reading goal though, and I am finally almost done with the first novel (again lol)! I can fully recommend this novel (I've actually finished the whole thing, multiple times!) to anyone looking for a unique twist on, you guessed it by the cover ANGELS! This book is really fast paced and exciting; you won't know who the bad guy is until the very end!

**You can get it on your Kindle for only $1.99 now!!**

Just started the sequel to Hush Hush
