Hot Releases: January-March 2014

Hello friends,

I've now been in Italy for almost a year and am still really enjoying my time there. I'm mastering Italian and love the language.

I still love the English language, but the Italian language is absolutely beautiful. I've loved learning it.

In terms of books, I'm so so so lost about what books have come out recently.

So friends, what books have come out recently that you have loved? I need all the recommendations I can get.

My 21st birthday+10 more months in Italy

Hello Friends,

Today I turned 21 years old and I turned 21 while in Italy, that is just flat-out crazy. I can't believe I'm in Italy. That's just so crazy.

I absolutely love Italy. I had always dreamed of going to Italy and now that dream has been a reality. I have ten more months here.

If you really want to get to know a different country, there is no better way than living there for an extended period of time.

I miss the States but like I said I love Italy.

I can't believe I'm now 21. It still feels like I am fourteen years old sometimes.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that my birthday was fabulous. Thanks for all those who wished me happy birthday.

Hello Friends,

I know they say that Paris is the city of love, but after visiting Verona, I have to disagree. I mean Verona is Juliet and Romeo's city and it's pretty romantic.

Yes, Juliet and Romeo were complete idiots but the city is beautiful.

At any rate, happy Valentines Day!

Top 10 books of the Year

Hello Readers,

I left for Italy in May so I'm only counting books that were released before June, but these were my favorite books that I read this year. 

1. Dare You to by Katie McGarry. I loved both books in this series. Katie is an incredible writer and I can't wait to see what she writes next.

2. The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler. This author is incredible. I've only read two books from her, but I loved them both.

3. Something Like Normal by Trish Doller. I absolutely loved this book and was actually surprised by how much I did love it.

4. A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman. I adored every novel I read by this author. Can't wait to read more from her.

5. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I was stunned with how much I liked this one. It is beautifully written and centers on a poignant theme.

6. Wait for You by Jennifer Armentrout. This book was also fantastic. I've loved every book I've read by this author.

7.Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. This book was just really intense and I really really enjoyed it.

8. Easy by Tammara Webber. It was beautifully written and one that I just really enjoyed.

9. Jennifer by Dee Henderson. Dee is one of my favorite authors of all-times. I'm so glad I got to read this one. 

10. Obsidian, Opal, and Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Like I mentioned earlier, I just really like this author.

What were your favorite books of the year?

Merry Christmas!

Fellow Page Turners,

I love Christmas. It's one of my favorite fact, now that I'm a little older I think it is my favorite holiday.

I am a Christian and I love that we celebrate Christ's birth and that it's a time of giving. I love the idea of a Santa Claus who comes and gives us presents. I love the songs on the radio. I love the decorations. And I love spending the time with my family.

I'm still far from my family but I got to skype them and boy do I love them. I've been in Italy for six months now that it crazy to think about. Even crazier, I'll be home next Christmas. That song, "I'll be home for Christmas" has really taken on new meanings for me. I'm home in my dreams. :)

Anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous day!

What fun Christmas traditions do you have?

Hot Releases: November 2013

Hello Readers,

I've now been in Italy for seven months now. That's absolutely crazy. I love the work but am insanely behind in what books came out this month. I know these ones did. Did any of you read them? What other good books came out?

I only know of one book that was supposed to be released this month and I don't even know if it was. But assuming it was I know it was fantastic and you all would have loved it.

The book I believe was published is Crash into You by Katie McGarry. I absolutely adored the first two in the series and will be buying this one soon after I return.

What were your favorite books of the month? What books do I absolutely need to read?

Happy Reading!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Fellow Page-Turners,

To my friends from the States, I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! I'm still in Italy and honestly I didn't realize how many holidays I celebrated were only celebrated in the States.

So to those of you from other countries: Happy holidays that you celebrate that I don't. :)

I missed my Thanksgiving Dinner. Last Thanksgiving, my sister had unexpected surgery, and the one before my sister got married. So this is the third time in a row without Thanksgiving Dinner. Hopefully, next year I'll break the streak.

Anyway, hope you're having a fabulous day! And in the spirit of the holiday I'm thankful for my family and all the support they give me and of course I'm thankful for books.

I'll be glad to return from Italy and get back into reading. I know I'm missing out on some really incredible books.
