Top Ten Book To Read If Your Book Club Likes New Adult Contemporary

10. The Temptation of Lila & Ethan by Jessica Sorensen
I've read quite a few books by Jessica Sorensen and out of all of them this one is by far my favorite. You meet this couple in Ella & Micha and they instantly become a favorite. I loved reading their story.
Book Review

9. He's Come Undone by Theresa Weir
This is one of my favorite books that I was sent for review!! I remember reading this one and devouring it. I saw it on my bookshelf the other day and it made me want to reread it, I think I might do that soon.

8. Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken
Just like the last book I remember reading this book and loving it. I was lucky enough to be sent the entire series and I love it. 

7. All Lined Up by Cora Carmack
Cora Carmack is a freaking genius. Her books are pure gold and I think everyone should check them out, even if you're not normally a New Adult fan.

6. To Love Jason Thorn by Ella Maise
I read this book this year and it's one of my favorites of the year. Ella is also a sweetheart and let me interview her which made me a very happy blogger.

5. Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire
Beautiful Disaster was one of the first New Adult books I ever read and it really hooked me on the genre. I think if you're a fan of boys with tattoos that make your heart pitter pat then you'd definitely like this series.

4. The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover
Speaking of boys with tattoos. ;)

3. The Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines
I don't feel as if I really need to elaborate much on this. You all know that this series is one of my absolute favorites.

2. The Beaumont series by Heidi McLaughlin
Words can't express how much I enjoyed this series. My Unexpected Forever is probably my favorite, if I had to pick. I think the first one is being turned into a movie which would be AMAZING.

1. It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Everyone should read this book. Enough said.

Bedtime Book Tag

1. What book kept you up all night reading?
I remember when I read It Ends With Us I couldn't put it down so as soon as my son would go to sleep I'd pick it up and read it until my kindle was falling out of my hand.

2. What book made you scared to go to sleep?
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and then Anna Dressed In Blood both made me a little scared.

3. What book almost put you to sleep?
Hmm...I can't really think of any. See the thing is I don't want to read during the day because I want all of my attention to be on my son soooo I don't read until night time...when I'm tired...so technically every book I read almost puts me to sleep :P

4. What book has you tossing and turning in anticipation of its release?
Children of Eden got me excited but I think the last time I was like freaking out for a book release was when Breaking Dawn came out. I was going crazy!! I've also gotten super excited for all the books in the Marked Men series and The Rosemary Beach series.

5. What book has your dream girlfriend/ boyfriend?
Ben from November 9.

6. What book world would be your worst nightmare to live in?
Either The Hunger Games or An Ember in the Ashes.

7. What book cover reminds you of nighttime?
Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines!! It's a football field on a Friday NIGHT so hellur.

8. What book has a nightmarish cliffhanger?
Um well it wasn't really nightmarish but the ending of An Ember in the Ashes made me crazy because I wanted to know what was going to happen.

9. What book have you actually dreamed about?
I honestly can't say that I remember dreaming about a book but if I have it was probably Twilight.

10. What book monster would you not want to find under your bed?
Ahh what are there names, it's those creepy guys from The Mortal Instruments series. The silent brothers or whatever they were called I forget.

Greek Mythology Tag

I was tagged to do this really freaking cool tag by the lovely Cloe at Mornings & Epilogues so thank you to her for letting be a part of the team :P
I also want to say that after going through this tag and wanting to say The Fault in Our Stars for like almost every one of them, I've decided I'm going to try and not use it in any of my answers. Yep, you read that right, I'm going to try and name some new books. Wish me luck!!

1. Zeus: God of the Sky & Thunder The King of Gods

Your favorite book from any category
My favorite book this year is It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover and since it's still fresh on my mind I'm going to go with that one.

2. Here: Goddess of Marriage and Fertility
Cutest Book Couple
I loved Will and Lou in Me Before You.

3. Poseidon: God of the Sea & Earthquakes
Book That Drowned You In Feels
Not to turn this into a Colleen Hoover tag but November 9 (and It Ends With Us) made me cry pretty darn hard.

4. Athena: Goddess of Wisdom, Handicraft, and Strategic Warfare 
Series with the best world building
I'm currently reading Children of Eden by Joey Graceffa and there is a lot of world building. 

5. Hades: God of the Underworld
Favorite book with a dark/ominous plot
Do you guys remember Wither by Lauren DeStefano? It was like the most popular book ever a few years back and I loved it. I don't know if it's the darkest book I've ever read but it dealt with some dark stuff and that's the book that came to my mind when I read this question.

6. Aphrodite: Goddess of Love & Beauty
Most beautiful cover on a 2016 release
Um...I'm drawing such a blank right now. 

7. Ares: God of War & Bloodshed
Most violent book you have ever read
I recently read An Ember in the Ashes and it was pretty darn violent.

8. Hephaestus: God of Blacksmiths & Fire
Most swoon worthy character
I've always loved Adrian from the Bloodlines series. He's so dreamy.

9. Artemis: Goddess of the Hunt & the Moon
Favorite awesome heroine
Laia from An Ember in the Ashes is pretty kick ass.

10. Hermes: Messenger God of Thieves and Commerce
Book with the best message
Ugh guys I'm sorry but It Ends With Us has a really good message. Geesh see what happens when I try not to say The Fault in Our Stars a million times?

11. Hestia: Goddess of Home & Hearth
Book with the most relatable story
Pretty much any Colleen Hoover book, Yep.

12. Demeter: God of Agriculture
Favorite bookish setting
I love the setting in Anna & The French Kiss.

13. Dionysus: God of Wine & Celebration
Most anticipated 2016 release
Children of Eden by Joey Graceffa was probably my most anticipated book this year. I'm a huge fan of his and have been watching him on YouTube for years. When he announced that he'd be releasing a book I freaked out!!

Reading Slump and other shenanigans

I feel like a very bad book blogger.
I have not been posting and it makes me feel pretty darn sucky.
See I read An Ember in the Ashes a couple of weeks ago and it was fantastic. Unfortunately it's made me want to read the second book so bad that I have no interest in doing anything book related until I get my hands on that book!!
I've wanted to get on here and do a Top Ten Tuesday or a Book Tag but I seriously cannot stop thinking about that darn book.
I'm currently reading Joey Graceffa's new book Children of Eden and I plan on doing a book review on it as soon as I finish.
Spoiler I'm really liking it so far.
Anyway I just wanted to make a post apologizing to all of you for not keeping up with this. I'm going to try and do better.

It Gets Worse by Shane Dawson

I don't know about you but...oh I so badly want to finish that with a Taylor Swift lyric but I will try and resist the urge. I have been a huge fan of Shane Dawson for uh you know to be honest I don't even know how long. I do know it's been YEARS!!
He's been promoting his new book in some of his videos and I knew I had to have it. I decided to reach out to his publisher and I scored a review copy. Yay!!
I thought this book was really great and it made me want to pick up his other one I Hate My Selfie.
As you can see on the cover it's a collection of essays and that's what it is. Throughout the book we get to read about many different points in Shane's life and I loved that.
It was just as funny as I expected it to be but he also shared moments that were probably very difficult to share with the world.
I thought it was pretty brave of him to tell us about these moments.
Shane jokes a lot in his videos about being poor when he was younger and how he was "fat" but I guess I never released the extent of it all.
This book really gives you an inside look into Shane's life and it made me love him even more.
I'm not going to lie and tell you there weren't some parts where I was like oh my that's a bit much but you know what that's Shane. There are plenty of times where I watch his videos and go well that's...gross. However Shane flaunts his occasional grossness and I've learned to love him for it.
All in all I thought this book was really fun to read and I'm glad I got to know more about one of my favorite YouTubers.
I definitely recommend this book!!
