Sazon Book Tours Aug 21st: ‘Color Me In’ by Natasha Diaz/ a Review

I’m glad to partner up with Sazon Book Tours in the next stop on the ‘Color Me In’ Blog Tour!

August 12: Reading Blog

I finally finished ‘Outlander’ the other day. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the story! I loved the historical descriptions of Scotland, especially when it was set in the 1700’s. There were lots of steamy scenes in the book, but I thought it was tastefully written. Will I read the next book inContinue reading “August 12: Reading Blog”

Weekend Reads

I’m reading two books this weekend. The first I’m taking on is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve never watched the successful television show of the same name, yet I’ve heard many great things about it from my friends. I’ve decided to give the book a try. It’s a very long read (over 800 pages), butContinue reading “Weekend Reads”
