My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Warning: May contain spoilers—I tend to ramble.

★ ★ ★ ★ – Kept me interested all through and I liked it.

Why does something that’s supposedly wrong, feels so good?

“My Life Next Door” is a contemporary teen fiction.

Samantha is the good girl—the obedient A+ student, living with her sister and single mom. Her only reprieve is her fascination by the family next door; the troublemakers of the street. 

Jase is the hot guy next door, and one day he sees Samantha sitting on her rough, staring at the loving chaos he calls family. He decides to join her.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

★ ★ ★ ★ – Kept me interested all through and I liked it.

I received a Review Copy by the author in return for an honest review.

“Demonic Dora” is the first in a paranormal series intended for young adults.

Dora’s dad is a widely popular TV preacher, worshipped by almost everyone—except Dora.

When she accidentally summons a Demon, her life literally goes to hell. With only the good-looking, slightly pervy, Kieron on her side, she has to maneuver the underworld as a living person.

It’s 2018!

First of all, Happy New Year.

On my end, I have a headache. Today is just… Staying in bed, snuggling beneath my duvet and cozying up with my current read.

Needless to say, I’ve been forced to admit that my days of reckless partying are over. 🙁

But instead of mourning that, I’ll take pleasure in knowing that no party, means far less hungover reading.

2017 was a… crap year in so many ways.

And yet, it also introduced quite a few minor successes that made it all bearable. Friends. Books. Authors. Etc. Apart from my family, 2017 definitely mostly consisted of the bookish community. No complaints there.

So what about 2018?

I want to:

  • Beat The Backlist — I have so many backlist titles that I’m gonna do my darnest to not buy any newer books. (bookboxes don’t count, don’t be silly)
  • Aim for 100 books this year — I didn’t quite reach it in 2017, but that’s not gonna stop me.
  • Try to blog and review and bookstagram more.

So that’s my bookish plans so far.

What’s yours?
