Ethan Fisher is kind of a badass- just ask him. The fact that he plays guitar and sings in a band only serves as fuel to the fire of his flirtatious nature. That is until he meets Courtney Ross, a sort of anxious, pixie-like cheerleader with a vocabulary much larger than his. Things would be perfect if she didn’t live eighteen hundred miles away. She shifts his perspective and steals his heart, but how long can she keep it? Find out what was behind all of those sexy smirks in What Comes of Eating Doughnuts With a Boy Who Plays Guitar, and what really went down the night of that fateful phone call.

College bound, Ethan knows he will run into Courtney eventually, and he is determined to have another chance to be the man she thought he was. If it is even possible for her to speak to him without throwing her coffee in his face. He’s willing to take his chances in hopes that the infatuation of their summer love can hold up in the real world. In a novel that is part insightful overlap, part delicious sequel, learn how this winding tale of love and heartbreak unfolds.

Cover Reveal: The Sleeping Prince (The Sin Eater's Daughter #2)

The long awaited cover for The Sleeping Prince is finally here...


Return to the darkly beautiful world of The Sin Eater's Daughter with a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified . . . and desperate for more.

Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin's life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.

When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won't reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother and herself. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom.

Seriously is that not the most gorgeous cover you've ever seen?

I'm such a big fan of the covers, they're so pretty! I'm kind of sad that we won't be returning to Twylla and Lief, even though there wasn't a cliffhanger in book one it felt a little open to me. BUT I'm kind of excited, to meet new characters, to finally meet the sleeping prince and look at that synopsis.... 'a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified ... and desperate for more.' hell yes! I'm pretty sure I'll be thinking Twylla who? by the end, well I hope!

For those of you who aren't familiar with this series, get familiar! The Sin Eater's Daughter was one of the popular YA releases of this year. Filled with magic, folklore, an amazing unique plot with great characters-- it's a fantastically written fantasy book.

It's released April 2016, so get this on your TBR shelves now..

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Why read books and what started it all?

Hey guys,

So I was basically without internet for a few days, which was absolute torture but it allowed me to get some reading done and rearrange my bookshelves. During my little sort out of books deciding which ones to give away, I can across these classic's...

These were some of my first ever books from my mum and since then I became hooked with reading. As you can probably tell Charlotte's Web was the very first as it's showing a few signs of wear and tear ;)

This got be thinking, why do we read books? Was you gifted a book from a loved from and your obsession started there? Or did you happen upon books by yourself and loved to escape to another place or world? 

Or was you inspired by something else?

One determined girl. One resourceful boy. One miracle machine that could destroy everything. 

After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father’s prized invention. With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt—her father’s arch nemesis—discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum. 

Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away. She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger—Urlick Babbit—who harbors secrets of his own. 

Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same prize, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in fact be their biggest problem of all.


Hey Everyone!

So I've been a little absent over the past week, mainly because I'm super lazy and I just haven't found the effort to write some reviews so I've just been going from book to book as usual.

Well I'm back and with a brand new gorgeous blog design and it's all thanks to my fellow Obsessive blogger Olivia. 

Olivia is from Fictionally Obsessed and she is an AMAZING BLOG DESIGNER. You can find her at Fabulously Chic Designs which you guys should totally check out. She's so easy to work with for those of you who have idea's or designs in mind but she's absolutely perfect for those who are like me who have no idea and just want a change... I didn't even colours in mind (Sorry Olivia haha) and I basically chatted the head off her about our obsession with hot guys like Rowan, Roth and Rhysand (yes, we clearly have issues) Ooops off topic. Anyway she's easy to talk to and great to work with so don't be afraid to get in touch.

Thank you so much Olivia, you're the best!
