Five Fave Romance Books

Ta-Da! Check out my beautiful new blog look! It took me a few hours the other day but I finally got it the way I want it. (There may be a few extra changes here and there but nothing drastic). Maybe it's because of the new year or because I'm turning 21 or just because I felt like it, but I wanted to change things up. I wanted my blog to look a bit more "professional" or "grown-up" for lack of a better term. I want my blog to grow and change with me as the years go by.
Anyways, so that's my little reason for why the blog looks different. I hope you like it and that it's not too hard to navigate and find everything!

Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow a romance/lovey post was in order.
because no Valentine's post is complete with a Delena scene 

If a book doesn't have at least a tiny romance subplot, I will not read it. If there is no mention of romance or the hint of romance in the blurb of a book I most likely will not pick it up or buy it or even give it a chance. Yeah, I know... I'm really picky, but I know what I like and I made the decision a long time ago not to force myself to read a book. Life is too short to read books you don't enjoy and as a writer I feel its important to read books you enjoy and get inspiration from.

So, since I love romance so much here are my top five fave romance books (or romances in books):

  • A Court of Misty and Fury (the ACoTR series is my guilty pleasure OK?!) 
  • Twilight (cuz this series was what made me fall in love with vampires and romance in the first place). 
  • The Lux Series (the slow burn romance in this series is the best!) 
  • Alienated (I just really love alien/human romances) 
  • Everneath Series (This I read a looong time ago in my young teen years but it is still one of my favorite romance trilogies. The love triangle was so unique and fresh and I mean, it was a Persephone and Hades retelling so of course it was going to be good). 
(Yes, I'm aware these are all fantasy series. I haven't read a contemporary romance in a looong time). But just so you know that I have read some and do enjoy them (or did) here are the few contemporary romance books I've read over the years (all of them by the same author cuz I'm even pickier about my contemporary books): 

  • Sean Griswold's Head  by Lindsey Leavitt 
  • Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt 
  • The Chapel Wars by (you guessed it) Lindsey Leavitt 
Also, Valentine's Fun Fact about me: My favorite romance movie/story of all time is A Walk To Remember. I seriously love that movie so much!! It is the best and beautifully, perfectly sad.

What are you some of your favorite romance books/movies? :)

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
