Love is everything but expected.

Eden Munro came to California for a summer of sun, sand, and celebrities- what better way to forget about the drama back home? Until she meets her new family of strangers; a dad she hasn’t seen in three years, a stepmonster, and three stepbrothers.

Eden gets her own room in her dad’s fancy house in Santa Monica. A room right next door to her oldest stepbrother. Tyler Bruce. Whom she cannot stand. He has angry blue eyes and an ego bigger than a Beverly Hills mansion. She’s never felt such intense dislike for someone. But the two are constantly thrown together as his group of friends pulls her into their world of rule-breaking, partying, and pier-hanging

And the more she tries to understand what makes Tyler burn hotter than the California sun, the more Eden finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn’t…

Did I Mention I Love You? is the addictive first book in Wattpad sensation Estelle Maskame’s DIMIY trilogy: three unforgettable summers of secrets, heartbreak, and forbidden romance.

2016 Reading Challenge


With the commencement of December comes a rush of new year reading challenges, all inspiring the same objective among readers: broaden your horizons!

Whilst I’ll be taking part in other challenges – such as the Goodreads annual & 365 days of YA (more of a recommendation infographic, though) – I am also doing something different, this year…


2016 Book Challenge


Of course, most of my book-obsessed friends pass 50 books a year, but this is made for busier people who want to set achievable goals. 🙂

Only one of the ‘Specific Books’ is being released in 2016, however I will be writing ‘Community Reviews’ on all three, and will ask everyone who takes part in this challenge to share their rating & thoughts.

If you’re interested, pleaseeee comment (so I can keep up to date with you and ask you for your thoughts on books) and copy the image above to use in your own post/on a page.


Book Tour: Queen of Tomorrow by Sherry D. Ficklin

Title: Queen of Tomorrow {Stolen Empire #2}
Release Date: 14th of July, 2015
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Pages: 280
Synopsis: Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and sett
led in their own palace, things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved
Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile polit
ical landscape, she
quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of dece
it and infidelity
woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.
