Author: Amber Hart
Genre: YA Romantic Thriller
Release: January 30, 2018


Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.
Willow Bell thinks moving to the Okefenokee area isn’t half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog.
Girls are showing up dead in the swamp. And she could be next.
Everyone warns Willow to stay away from Beau Cadwell―the bad boy at the top of their suspect list as the serial killer tormenting the small town.
But beneath his wicked, depthless eyes, there’s something else that draws Willow to him.
When yet another girl he knew dies, though, Willow questions whether she can trust her instincts…or if they’re leading to her own death.


The walk is littered with stones and broken twigs. Leaves rustle like crackly paper. The wind brushes my skin so lightly that it’s almost a sigh. And then, only a few minutes later, I see the thing Beau wants me to see, sitting in the middle of it all.

“What is this?” I ask.

I bound over to it. Tree roots pop up from the ground like veiny scars intersecting a path. The crazy boy has made a platform for us out of wood, with four stilt legs beneath it digging into the ground. The wood is pine and smells like it, too. I run a finger along the edge, feeling where he smoothed it. It’s newly made, I can tell by the flakes that pepper the forest floor like pencil shavings and the rich wood smell. Atop the platform are another four posts with a fifth in the center, and draped over that is a canopy of white fabric. It sways in the breeze like spider’s silk.

“I wanted us to have a place to hang out,” Beau replies. “Where we won’t run into Old Lady Bell, Charlotte, or Grandpa, and where we can both be alone to relax.”

His eyes roam the swamp around us.

The makeshift pavilion is smaller than my room, but still it’s the most beautiful thing. Clear lights are strung around it, reminding me of fireflies. There is not enough space in my lungs for the quick breaths of excitement I find myself taking. I gasp at the beauty of it all.

“How did you get them to light up?” My question is filled with wonder.

“Battery powered,” he says, his grin growing. “Wait till you see inside.”

He helps me onto the platform that protects us from wandering critters below. It’s easily five feet up. I try not to catch my feet on the lights.

Beau pulls back the drape. A small cluster of cushions sits on the ground, fronted by a tiny wooden table topped with freshly fallen leaves and sticks, reminding me of a bird’s nest. A pink magnolia marks the middle, the source of the floral smell that sticks to the air.

“You did this?” I ask, mesmerized.

“All by myself,” he says.

It’s hard to imagine. Sure, I can see how Beau would bring the cushions and lights and tools to the island by boat, and how he could use the resources already here—the trees and stump for the table, the sticks and flower and leaves—to construct everything, but what I can’t see is why Beau would go through the trouble. Isn’t he the boy Jorie warned me about—the one who breaks hearts? Isn’t he the one Gran swore was darker than the night? That Beau doesn’t match the one standing before me, watching my reaction.

“I love it,” I say.

And then I wrap my arms around this surprising boy and press my lips to his.

To say that my tbr for February is large is… an understatement. Especially considering there’s only 28 days and I want to read 18 books.

I’ll break the tbr into 2 parts: the books I am for sure reading this month & the books I really want to read this month.

For sure reading:

  • City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
  • Wires and Nerve vol. 2 by Marissa Meyer
  • House of Secrets by VC Andrews
  • Shopping for Love by Renee Carlino
  • Unearthed by Meagan Spooner & Amie Kaufman
  • Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross
  • Meet Cute by various authors

Desperately hoping to get to:

  • Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
  • This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
  • Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen
  • Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen
  • What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
  • The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
  • Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
  • The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
  • On The Fence by Kasie West
  • The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
  • PS I Like You by Kasie West

I’ve seen quite a few contemporary themed readathons for February and while I’m not officially joining any, I do want to get a lot of my contemporary books off  my tbr. Which is mainly Sarah Dessen and Kasie West books.

I highly doubt I’m going to finish all of these books this month but I’m going to try. My March tbr is pretty small and mostly rereads that I plan on listening to on audiobook so whatever I don’t read this month will easily be moved over.

What are you planning on reading this month?


I read… I guess more than I was expecting to in January? But I didn’t get to some of the books that were actually on my tbr. There were a few ARCs I wasn’t expecting to be approved for and those got pushed to the top of my tbr.

In the end I read 11 books this month. There’s still about 8 and a half hours left in the day though so I might finish another.

Out of the 11 there was:

  • 1 audiobook
  • 2 re-reads
  • 6 books published in 2018
    • 5 of them were ARCs

Here’s what I read and what I thought:

  1. Timekeeper by Tara Sim – 5/5 stars
    • I told myself to read this first this year no matter what. I’d been wanting to read it for such a long time and I’m glad I finally did. Now I’m dying to read the next book and hopefully I’ll be able to get to it in February.
  2. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – 5/5 stars
    • I finally read an Adam Silvera book! It broke my heart! I can’t wait to read more from him!!
  3. See All The Stars by Kit Frick – 4/5 stars
    • Release date: August 14th 2018
    • This was a really nice debut novel. I’ll have a review up closer to release date.
  4. A List of Cages by Robin Roe – 5/5 stars
    • 100% worth the hype
  5. The Radical Element edited by Jessica Spotswood – 4/5 stars
    • Release date: March 13th 2018
    • I am not a huge anthology fan even though I still keep reading them. This one surprised me by how much I enjoyed it though! I’d definitely recommend picking it up when it comes out
  6. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – 5/5 stars
    • Obviously a re-read. I mean.. I named my blog after this series. I did listen to the audiobook this time which I didn’t do the first time I read it. I already can’t wait to re-read the next book.
  7. Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston – 5/5 stars
    • Release date: February 27th 2018
    • I was shocked when I got approved for this ARC. Usually I don’t re-read books within the same year but I really might read this one again when I get my final copy because I loved it that much.
  8. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – 4/5 stars
    • Another re-read. Still not my favorite Shadowhunters book which I guess is why it took years for me to get to the rest of the series. It’s still nice to go back and see how much her writing has improved though.
  9. The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren – 4/5 stars
    • I don’t have much to say other than I really, really loved this book. Roni Loren writes books you can’t put down.
  10. The One You Can’t Forget by Roni Loren –  5/5 stars
    • Release date: June 5th 2018
    • Again, this was a book I could not put down. I just enjoyed the plot a little more than the first book which is why this got 5 stars and the first got 4.
  11. I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman – 5/5 stars
    • Release date: March 27th 2018
    • I read this in one sitting…. which I very rarely do. I just kept turning the page, literally unable to stop until I got to the end. This is one of those books you really don’t want to miss out on. And it might be another that I re-read when I get a final copy.



We are so thrilled to reveal the cover for GETTING SCHOOLED by Emma Chase, a brand new standalone releasing on audible February 27th and everywhere else June 26th! 



Head of the class…

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out.

The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and “cool” teacher in the hometown where he’s not just a golden boy — he’s platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle.

Then…Callie Carpenter comes home.

And knocks him right on his tight end zone.

Back to school…

Callie has a pretty sweet life herself…on the other side of the country. But circumstances — that she’d prefer to never speak of again — have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school.

Now she’s facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore…and that’s just the teachers.

Just like old times…

When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance – and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

Good friends are all they can ever be.

Or…these teachers just might end up getting schooled — hard — by love.

Includes a special bonus interview with the author!

36563330I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman

Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from everyone he has ever loved, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City with a backpack, a desperate plan, and nothing left to lose. When a fateful accident draws these three strangers together, their secrets start to unravel as they begin to understand that the way out of their own loss might just lie in help­ing the others out of theirs. 

An emotionally cathartic story of losing love, finding love, and discovering the person you are meant to be, I Have Lost My Way is best­selling author Gayle Forman at her finest.

Gayle Forman books are usually hit or miss with me. As long as this is a standalone it should be good? I’ve enjoyed her standalones but with her duologies I enjoy the 2nd book much more than the first.

36568029The One You Can’t Forget by Roni Loren

Most days Rebecca Lindt feels like an imposter…

The world admires her as a survivor. But that impression would crumble if people knew her secret. She didn’t deserve to be the one who got away. But nothing can change the past, so she’s thrown herself into her work. She can’t dwell if she never slows down.

Wes Garrett is trying to get back on his feet after losing his dream restaurant, his money, and half his damn mind in a vicious divorce. But when he intervenes in a mugging and saves Rebecca―the attorney who helped his ex ruin him―his simple life gets complicated.

Their attraction is inconvenient and neither wants more than a fling. But when Rebecca’s secret is put at risk, both discover they could lose everything, including what they never realized they needed: each other

This…might be my favorite read of January???? I’ll post my review closer to release date.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Probably Cinderella and the Geek by Christina Phillips. I was approved for an ARC on Netgalley and I want to read it so my feedback ratio goes back to 100%. I have no idea what to expect from this book honestly so we’ll see how it goes.
