Addicted series & Calloway Sisters Complete Reading Order


Review

This is really the end. After all this time, this is it. Some Kind of Perfect is the perfect end to one of the best series I've ever read.

I know I said that Long Way Down was bittersweet (and it was), but so was Some Kind of Perfect. It spans ten years and we're treated to so many special moments featuring the core six. It was truly a delight to be able to read about these moments after getting that sneak peek in the LWD epilogue.

The Addicted/Calloway Sisters series is absolutely amazing. Every single book (yes, all ten of them!) has been great. I haven't been disappointed in anything at all. Krista & Becca have pulled off a mind-blowing feat. They've written a consistently amazing series. Better than that, the books got progressively better. I'm amazed at how much I've enjoyed this journey.

If you haven't read this series, what are you doing with your life?! No, seriously... what are you doing? Addicted to You is currently free on Amazon and you've got a lot of catching up to do. Go forth and read some of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

I don't suffer from book hangovers often, but I definitely have one after this. And I'm okay with that. I certainly look forward to reading more from Krista & Becca in the future. Whether it's Infini or the Like Us series (or whatever else they decide to write), I know it'll be worth the wait.

Waiting on Wednesday (#14)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event that's hosted by Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm waiting on...

Title Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit
Author Jaye Robin Brown
Release Date August 30, 2016

Joanna Gordon has been out and proud for years, but when her popular radio evangelist father remarries and decides to move all three of them from Atlanta to the more conservative Rome, Georgia, he asks Jo to do the impossible: to lie low for the rest of her senior year. And Jo reluctantly agrees.

Although it is (mostly) much easier for Jo to fit in as a straight girl, things get complicated when she meets Mary Carlson, the oh-so-tempting sister of her new friend at school. But Jo couldn’t possibly think of breaking her promise to her dad. Even if she’s starting to fall for the girl. Even if there’s a chance Mary Carlson might be interested in her, too. Right?

Top Ten Tuesday (#7)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because everyone loves a good list, don't they? We love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim


No recommendations. No reviews. No research. These are books that I randomly picked up...

  1. 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon Hickman - I found this one on Netgalley. I was a bit hesitate to request it (no reviews and it was different from what I normally read), but something drew me to it. I ended up really enjoying it.
  2. 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir by B. B. Easton - One of my friends on Goodreads added this to her TBR list. After reading the blurb for it, I one clicked it. I ended up loving it. Totally funny.
  3. Bird Box by Josh Malerman - All I knew when I picked this one up was that it was a horror/thriller. While I was a little disappointed when I initially read it, I ended loving it (yes, even after it gave me a nightmare, lol).
  4. Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher - I kept seeing this book around with pretty decent ratings, but I had no clue what was in store. Mud Vein definitely made me a fan of Tarryn's work. Going in blind is definitely my recommendation for her books.
  5. 120 Days... by M. Stratton - This is actually the book I'm currently reading. The cover is what drew me in originally and the blurb is why I decided to one click it.
  6. F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher - I have no idea what this book is about as I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. I one clicked it as soon as I found out about it simply because it's by Tarryn. I'm sure it'll be good.
  7. Even the Moon Has Scars by Steph Campbell - This is another one I haven't had the chance to read yet. Between the title, cover, and blurb, though, I just had to have it.
  8. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - I had no idea what this was about whenever I picked it up, but it was on sale and I kept seeing it everywhere. I ended up enjoying it and reading the sequels.
  9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - I picked this up randomly a few years ago while browsing Barnes & Noble for a book to read on a flight from Michigan to Georgia. I ended up loving the trilogy (and hope to read the forth book soon).
  10. Butterfly Dreams by A. Meredith Walters - This is another book that I haven't had the chance to read yet. Like books by Tarryn Fisher, I one clicked this one solely based on the author. I've really enjoyed A. Meredith Walter's books before, so I grabbed this one whenever I found out about it.
This was a difficult list for me this week. I generally read reviews before I buy a book (and almost certainly read reviews before reading the actual book). Sometimes, though, going in blind is wonderful.
