Happy New Year, and happy first Friday of 2015! :)

Well, to be honest, 2014 was a super-duper-mega-slow reading year for me so I did not manage to read as much books as I initially hoped, but I definitely read a few good ones!



~ Just a bit of horror that spiced up my 2014! ~


Jamie McGuire is best known for her Beautiful Disaster series `- you must have at least heard of it! - and of course buying her books came too naturally! Because, you know, Beautiful Disaster was just purely-I can't even finish my-so freaking!-AHH-MA-ZING. I bought Red Hill without even having second thoughts about it and ended up entering into "zombieland" completely and utterly blind. I never thought that Red Hill would be a horror story, switching from romance to guns and rifles isn't exactly smooth sailing, it took me at least a quarter into the book before I realized that there won't be any candlelights and steamy kisses, but I LOVE IT NONETHELESS.

If I would recommend it to anyone, it would be to thrill seeking readers and horror lovers who would love to have a shot of adrenaline. The book was filled with emotional turmoils and a lot of running. Brilliant characters, brilliant storyline. I could not have asked for more! 

You can read my review here.

~ A lil' romance never hurt ~


I read this sometime in 2012 but decided to reread it again in 2014, and it never failed to make me tear up the second time *blushes*. I cry wayyy too easily over a story, especially if trust issues were involved! It is just so painful to witness the downfall of a relationship just because of a lack of trust. I fell in love with this book from the start, just because Lexi White is so funny, which is imperative in a good chic lit. Watching the relationship between Lexi and Vincent grows was just so relateable and sweet, if you love a good chic lit, this is a must-read! :)

Happy Friday and cant wait to read your picks! :)

  6. I have heard of Jamie McGuire, but haven't read any of her books. It's always great when yo pick up a book solely based on the author, and then you're amazed!

    Happy Friday, Natasha!

  7. I haven't read either of these. Red Hill doesn't sound too much my type of read, but Trust in Advertising does.

  13. Woah, your blog is so pretty! <3 Thank you for reaching out to me!

    Hmm, I have not read Beautiful Disaster (sorry!!) but I do plan to. And woah, contemporary romance to horror? That's something! My favorite two books this year were Captive Prince (M/M romance - do you read some?) and Cracked by Eliza Crewe (so entertaining!)

    I look forward to interacting more with you, Natasha :)

  17. I haven't heard of Red Hill but Jamie McGuire rings a bell. Will definitely check it out when I can, Trust In Advertising doesn't look like something I'd particularly like, but I won't pass it off straight away, I'll try and look for some reviews and contemplate.

    By the way, your blog is super cute!

  19. Just hopping through :) I love your choice of books! Red Hill has been on my radar, but I wasn't the biggest fan of Beautiful...Disaster? so I had been wary....BUT do love horror & zombies...and since it was one of your favorite reads of the year, I'll definitely give this one a try.
