I've moved!

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to post a little something for my loyal followers to let you know that I have moved! I have decided to move my blog over to wordpress, and just wanted to give you fair warning that I will no longer be posting on my blogger site. If you have enjoyed my blog, I'd love it if you'd follow me over to my new site at Alice's Book Vault.

Feel free to leave any comments if you have any questions or concerns!

Thank you again for following me ^-^

BLOG TOUR: Keeping Her Secret


 


Title: Keeping Her Secret
Author: Sarah Nicolas
Published: August 22, 2016
Format: e-ARC
My Rating: 3 stars/5

Synopsis: Two girls. One Kiss.

The last person Riya Johnson expected to run into at her new summer camp is Courtney Chastain—her childhood best friend and the girl who broke her heart after a secret, mind-blowing, life-altering kiss. She definitely didn’t expect to be sharing a bunk bed with her for four long weeks.


Courtney has what every girl wants—she’s beautiful, rich, and the object of every boy’s desire at Camp Pine Ridge. Too bad none of them make her feel an iota of what Riya’s kiss did all those years ago. But Courtney needs to uphold appearances at all costs—even if it means instigating an all-out prank war with Riya as her main target. Neither girl can stop thinking about the other…but that doesn’t mean they can give up past hurts and take a chance on a future together.

August Wrap Up


Hey guys! Welcome to my first ever Monthly Wrap up post! I cannot wait to read everyone's wrap ups! I hope you enjoy mine!


Three exciting things that happened last month

1. I got accepted for an e-arc for The Alchemists of Loom, one of my most anticipated reads.
2. I just had my 1 year blogiversary
3. I read the most books this month then any other month before.

Three new obsessions

1. Stranger Things (I watched the whole show in two days)
2. I am currently getting addicted to the show Hannibal
3. The Kobo Aura One. I want one so badly it hurts! I can't wait for it to come out so I can check out the reviews on it.

Instagram pic of the month 






This is my Instagram pic of the month! I took this photo on August 1st, 2016 just after I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.











Top 3 books I read

1. Betrayals by Kelley Armstrong
2. The Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts
3. Make Me Stay by M.E Gordon

Total books read this month: 12. I read twelve books this month! That is so crazy, I don't know where I found the time, but I just flew through some books. I think this is my record.

Most popular blog post

My most popular blog post this month is a bit of a cheat, as this month was my 1 Year Blogiversary! But other then that post, my TTT post of Authors I'd Die to Meet was my second best post. 

What to watch out for next month on the blog

For two weeks I'll be visiting Italy! I will still be posting while away, but you will most likely also get some Italy info and pictures! Hope you don't mind a little travel with your books ;) 

Top 3 new books on my shelves (books I've bought)

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
2. Empire of Storms
3. Crooked Kingdom

Now I know two of these books aren't technically out yet, but I have done so well in August and these are the only three books that I have bought. In case you have forgotten, I am on a book buying ban as I have my wedding and honeymoon coming up in the next year.

5 additions to my TBR that I'm really excited for

1. Girl in Pieces
2. Whenever I'm with You
3. A Lie for a Lie
4. Lost Girls
5. Lucky Girl

Most of these are 2017 releases, but I have been going on a hunt for books in 2017 that I'd like to keep my eye on, so these are them! Girl in Pieces is out now and I'm very excited to pick it up.


Thank you so much for reading my first monthly wrap up post! I hope you enjoyed it, and feel free to leave a comment ^-^

BLOG TOUR: Daring the Bad Boy


Title: Daring the Bad Boy
Author: Monica Murphy 
Published: August 22, 2016

Synopsis: Truth or Dare was never this much fun...

Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on ├╝ber-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out.

Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle.

Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions...but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, sexual situations, adult language, and an intense bad boy hero who will melt your heart.

1 Year Blogiversary!

Hello everyone!! I know I am super late posting my 1 year Blogiversary post as my actual blogivesary was August 10th, but I got completely caught up in books and could not bring myself to stop reading long enough to finish up this post... But come on, who hasn't been there?! I knew you guys would forgive my lateness because we all have a love for reading and I'm sure we've all put things off just so that we could finish one more chapter of a book. Also, I've been trying to come up with a fun blogiversary giveaway before I posted! But now that I've finally made myself finish, here is a little about Alice's Book Vault and myself =^-^=
