Publication date: February 4th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
She’s never had the courage to hold on to anyone. He never learned how to let go of what he wants.
Delaney Shaw isn’t looking for anything complicated. After her teaching career is put on hold, she decides to spend the summer in Georgia with her best friend. Lanie lives for the here and now, and she isn’t thinking past the end of the summer. She’s never had any problem being unattached, because she learned a long time ago that life is safer that way.
Until Reece Walker decides to change her mind.
Almost a year after his ex-wife’s death, Reece is still reeling from her passing. He’s devoted himself to raising their son and working his family’s farm to keep himself grounded. Reece feels like he’s lost sight of the man he used to be, and he’s not sure how to find his way back.
Everything changes when the woman he’s unsuccessfully tried to forget walks back into his life.
Even though she’s fighting their sizzling chemistry, Lanie is losing the war. But love isn’t always like it is in the movies, and they have real issues. Lanie is terrified Reece’s small town won’t accept their interracial relationship, and she doesn’t know how to let him in.
Lanie has had years to build her defenses, but Reece isn’t the sort to give up without a fight. If he can counter Lanie’s fears with the future only he can offer her, maybe they can both learn to breathe again.
Molli is a Southern author who doesn’t consider her day complete if she hasn’t written. She loves coffee and talking fast, things she attributes to being raised by Gilmore Girls. She’s a romantic at heart, and brings that to her books, which are usually about characters chasing after their happily ever after. Although content when reading, she can often be found watching and flailing over Doctor Who, cuddling her various pets, or spending time with friends, family, or her girlfriend. Molli loves Oxford commas, country music, Stefan Salvatore, and scarves.
Molli is the author of The Walker Boys series, about a trio of rowdy brothers, their growth and individual journeys, and the sassy girls who love them. She’s also written a New Adult standalone novel, ONE SONG AWAY, with other books constantly on her mind. You can keep in touch with Molli on Twitter, where she hangs out as @MissMolliWrites.
These months have been crazy. I have tried to keep up with my blog as much as possible but tags, awards and wrap ups have suffered more than reviews. Although I couldn’t get all the reviews up either but posted a decent amount. Here are the books I read in these three months-
I read 24 books in September. Out of which I reviewed 17 books and 7 are yet to be reviewed. You can click on the titles of the reviewed books to check out the reviews. 🙂
I read 13 books in October. About half of what I read in September. Out of which I reviewed 5 books and 8 books are yet to be reviewed. Click on the links to see the reviews. 🙂
I read 34 books in November. 7 Reviewed and 27 not reviewed. Click on the links for reviews. As you can see in the ‘Not reviewed’ section that I read a lot of Children’s books this month. My exams started this month and on a random day I wanted to read something light so I ended up reading all the Children’s books that I had. 😛
There’s no TBR this month because I have exams stretched till 21st of December but that won’t stop me from reading. Today is 2nd December and I already read a book yesterday. 😛
My plan this month is to get the reviews of all the books that I have read this year up. I plan to do that after 21st, that is, after my exams end. Get ready for lots of reviews. 😛 I have been lagging with tags and awards since September. I will try to do some of them as well.
And obviously, my Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2015 is 150 books which I set up in May, so I got a little late start. Although the Children’s books that I read in November did a good job for filling up my challenge but I am still on 133 books. That means I will have to read 17 books this month.
Seems like a lot, what with all the juggling with exams, blog, and reading. But when I will be done, this packed schedule is going to be worth it. 😉 😀
This is it! 😀 My Wrap-Ups and Plans. What are your plans and how far along are you in your challenge if you did set up one that is. 😛
I was tagged by Shivalika @ Whimsy Journals to do this tag. Thank you so much, Shivalika! 😀
Tags like these always get me thinking because for me there isn’t one emotion, there are many. So, to pick out a specific is brain-wrecking for me. But the feel after completing such tags is always good! 😀 😀
Let’s get started- 🙂
RICE: THE FOUNDATION – “The book that got you into reading (or book blogging).”
I always loved to read so in true sense it would be my school essay books or English textbooks. But my first book was- well, I am confused. I think I read The Famous Five and the Secret of the Caves by Enid Blyton first and then David Copperfield Exercise Book. This was obviously the start of my obsession with books. ❤
BEANS: THE FILLER – “A book with a whole lot of nothing happening.”
Fifty Shades Darker by E.L.James. Need say more? If not for the little blackmailing, gun firing and coma stuff in the last book, I would most probably have named the whole trilogy. But the climax of the last book saves it.
PROTEIN: THE BUILDING BLOCK – “A book quote to live by.”
These are from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. There are many quotes like these in that book that have my heart. ❤
Do I even have to say anything? All of the Harry Potter quotes, come on, man, you have to love all of them. No exceptions! 😀
FAJITAS: THE CRUNCH OF TEXTURE – “A book with immaculate world-building.”
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Maegan Spooner.
The only books I have read that can fit this question are the ones I am going to select, because, no option. I liked both of these books very much. 😀
SALSA: THE DANCE OF FLAVOUR – “A book that kept you on your toes.”
Deception Point by Dan Brown. This book had me enthralled and kept me alert till the last fullstop.
CORN: THE EXPLOSION OF SWEETNESS – “A memorable scene involving friendship/romance.”
Can’t pick one. There are way too many memorable scenes that I can’t figure even one out. 😛
CHEESE: THE BOND OF CALCIUM – “Two characters from different books you wish could be friends.”
Umm… this is a difficult one. Can I just skip this one? I could have not included this question but then I would have felt like I cheated.
SOUR CREAM: THE TANGY TOPPER – “The quirkiest character you’ve ever read (protagonist or supporting).
Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. With all those wigs and weird clothes, Lola has to be the quirkiest. 😛
GUACAMOLE: THE COST OF CREAMINESS – “A book you paid too much for (based on utility experienced).”
Fortunately, None! 😉
LETTUCE: THE HANDFUL OF CRISPNESS – “A refreshing concept/theme in a book.”
For me, it is Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgon Matson. I will take a road trip someday just because of this book. 😀
CHIPS: LE PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE – “A must-read recommendation if you like [this book/genre—you decide!]”
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. ❤ That’s my favorite book, you don’t need any other reason to recommend your favorite book, do you? 😛
TABASCO: THE KICK TO THE FACE – “Your favourite fight/action sequence.”
How about a punch in the face? 😛 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K.Rowling.
Well, okay, okay, I know Hermione slapped Draco in the book but a punch is way more dramatic. 😛
(p.s. I haven’t read Harry Potter but I couldn’t think of any other scenes. )
I know you guys will do better than me.
I suck at answering questions. Enjoy! 😀
Awards are like a pat on the back, they are always encouraging. 🙂 I’ve been nominated for a new award i.e., The Encouraging Thunder award. 😀 😀
Thank you Raven for nominating me! ❤ I like your blog Dreamy Addictions and the name is just wow! ❤ 😀
My Purpose of Blogging:
Many of you out there have the same reason as mine when it comes blogging. Having no one to share your book love with.
I love putting my thoughts out there. The best feeling for me is to be heard and appreciated and this is the perfect platform for me. 😀
This is my purpose. ❤ ❤
I blog to be happy and share my love and passion for books. No other purpose needed! ❤
Spread the love! ❤ ❤
