That time I read 3 books in 1 week...

Good morning on this very gloomy, extremely warm and humid Houston day. Despite the crazy, unwinter-like weather, I'm bound and determined to make today a good one. Here's one way I'm going to do that...talk to y'all about the 3 books I just read. All by Colleen Hoover. She has an amazing way with words.

I absolutely love to read. I love the way I feel when I get lost in a story. I love the emotions. I love that I can plant myself right there beside the characters. I guess you could say it's sort of an escape. I try to read as often as possible, but let's be honest, this over-committed, crazy girl doesn't always have time. My favorite times to read are in the bath tub, on a lazy Sunday, on car trips and on flights. Two weekends ago I had a lazy Sunday and I had 2 flights and down time at the airport this weekend. Somehow this resulted in me reading 3 books. Did I mention I read fast?

So here you go, the next books you need to read are...

This was a beautiful story about young love and finding yourself. If you like plot twists and feeling on edge about what's going to happen next, this is for you. I was literally hooked from the beginning.



Slammed is the first of a two book series. This is another romance that takes you into the lives of two young people dealing with more trauma and sadness than most people experience. You get wrapped up in every emotion. I was crying at one point and laughing the next.


Point of Retreat

Read this after Slammed. At this point you know the characters, you know what they've been through and now it's time to see how they continue on through life. More trials, more smiles and more life lessons. It shows you that love is never easy, but it's always worth it.


Y'all, seriously read these books. If your looking for something to read on your next gloomy day, start here. I promise you won't regret it. All of these books were recommended to me by Lia Joy. Everything she's ever told me to read I have fallen in love with.

Do you love to read? What are your favorites and what should I read next?! I love suggestions!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,


  1. YAY!! So glad you loved them! :) If you liked Hopeless, you need to read The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski. Other good books: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton; Crash by Nicole Williams; Clash by Nicole Williams; Love Unscripted by Tina Reber; Love Unrehearsed by Tina Reber. You know where to find me if you need more suggestions :)

  2. I just finished Slammed yesterday! I really enjoyed it. I'll have to check out the others!

  3. I'm a book nerd too and am excited to add these to my list! I was late to the "Gabriel" game and just finished Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture. Love them!

  4. Wow, what a great accomplishment - I think the only time I have ever done this was on vacation!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  5. I've been wanting to start Slammed for a while now but just haven't found the time to sit down and do it. I hear it is good. So nice that you had time to read 3 good books!

  6. OMG, I totally read those three books in a week, too!! I think Slammed was my favorite out of the whole three.

  7. I used to be a reader, but I don't do it much anymore! It makes me really sad. I wish I had more time! I'm sure I'll read more when I lay out by the pool this summer.

    I reviewed a book called The Kings of Charleston last year and it was SO good! I totally recommend it.

  8. Whooo!! A new series! Thanks! :)

  9. I keep hearing such great things about Slammed. Definitely the more I hear about it, the more I want to read it!

  10. I am a reading fiend! You should sign up for goodreads.com - it's like Facebook for readers!

    If you read the Hunger Games then you should read The Divergent series. It's a 3 book series, but only 2 are out :( But it is soooo worth the read!


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
