My Bookish Christmas Wishlist

My Bookish Christmas Wishlist

Here are my top 10 highly anticipated books of 2015! Historical Romance If the Viscount Falls by Sabrina Jeffries (The Dukes Men 4) Expected Publication: January 27th 2015 by Pocket Books […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Gateway Authors in My Reading Journey

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish This week at TTT, we are talking about our Gateway authors or in my case, Authors that influenced my reading and (at some point) my life.

I literally grew up with this series and I found that I upgraded my reading level based on my age (well, I started reading SVU when I […]
