Erin: I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Hi Everyone! I'll Meet You There  is the second book of Heather Demetrios that I've read (the first one being  Exquisit Capture ) and it was such a good book!! Here's my review below! From Goodreads : If seventeen-year-old Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage months of summer. Skylar can taste the freedom—that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she’s ever worked for is on the line. Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise

Meg-A Readers 2015 Week 3 Recap! Review of "Nicola and the Viscount"

Hey Everyone!! I can't believe it's already Week 3 of Meg-A Readers! Only two more weeks left! Sorry today's post is a little late, I worked straight through today, and this is the first I've been able to have a few minutes while still at work. For today I have a review of Meg Cabot's historical romance Nicola and the Viscount ! From Goodreads : Nicola always gets what she wants. Nicola Sparks, sixteen and an orphan, is ready to dive headlong into her first glittering London society season. She's also ready to dive headlong into the arms of handsome and debonair Lord Sebastian Bartholomew. Nicola's dream is a proposal from the viscount--a dream she's about to realize at last! So naturally, Nathaniel Sheridan's insinuations about her fiance's flawed character annoy her mightily. But when Nicola's natural curiosity gets the best of her, she begins to piece together a few things for herself. To her great surprise, Nicola realiz

And I got to meet so many authors including one of my absolute favorite authors, Kody Keplinger!!!! :) It started with a bang already! We walked into the Pasadena Public Library and right there in the main hall was none other than KODY KEPLINGER herself!!! I walked up to her and two other guests, who I soon found out were Alexis Bass (author of  Love and Other Theories ) and Virginia Boecker (author of the upcoming  The Witch Hunter )! I told her who she was, and she was so nice and right away was like, "Mandy!!!  It's so great to finally meet you!" It was so cool!! After saying our goodbyes for now, we started exploring the library.  It was truly beautiful!  Four stories of lovely lovely books! In the auditorium, they had carts and carts of books, which early guests were given an aw
