Valentine's Day Book Recommendations & My Weekend Reads

Today I am going to share my recommendations for your Valentine's weekend to get you into the lovey dovey mood. I will also be sharing what I have been reading to get into V-day spirit!



Contemporary
Losing It : A sexy NA read that will make you lol. I love this book, and it is still my favorite from Cora Carmack 
The Distance Between Us : I just love Kasie West's writing, and it wouldn't be a Valentine's book recommendation list without her on it. 
The Summer I Turned Pretty : Really ANY Jenny Han book would be perfect for this weekend! If you are dreaming about summer, than this is the book series for you. It will be your beach escape. 
Fangirl: With all the exciting news of the new Harry Potter play being published in book form, I know it brings back a lot of Harry Potter memories. Waiting in line for the books, counting down the days to the next release, reading fan fiction like crazy. This book will help you remember that kind of love all over again. 
Fantasy 
Doon: If you still have not read this series NOW IS THE TIME. It is a YA Outlander, and it is such a fun read. There is a little bit of insta love/hate but in the best kind of way! 
StarCrossed : ONE OF MY FAVORITE SERIES EVER!!!! I love this book so much. It has everything I love. Greek mythology, a strong female lead, a sexy boy, and so much more! PLEASE read this series! 
Carry On : Need I say more? 
Sweet Evil : This is a fun series to read when you have a book hangover. It is fun, fast paced, unique, and angsty. I FLEW through this series. 
Paranormal
Wicked: This was such a fun NA read. JLA wrote it.....she pretty much drops the mic every time she finishes writing a book (well she should if she doesn't.) This is such a sexy read, but it does not lack in action and suspense. 
A Court of Thorns and Roses : If you are still waiting to read this book because you are afraid that it will not be as good as Maas' other books...wait no longer my friend! I was SHOCKED at how great this book is, and I am dying for the next one! 
Bloodlines: I love everything about this series. The romance is on FIRE, and it is a nice slow burn. 
Guilty Pleasure (Not recommended for readers under 20)
His Purrfect Mate: Shapeshifters, forbidden love, make for a great guilty pleasure
Obsession: JLA shows us what the Lux series would have been like IF the main characters were adults. SOOOO sexy! 



What I am Reading: 
I have bee listening to The Elite and now The One, and I am LOVING it. 
I am not far into this one yet, but hopefully I will finish it today. 


What are you guys reading this weekend? If you are wanting ideas for your Valentine's Date that are book related, then head on over to my last post. I have a lot of ideas for you and your loved one! Let me know what your recommendations are, and if you will be reading any of these books! 
I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day! 
Happy Reading Y'all,

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
