NOWHERE BUT HERE Synopsis: An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible  Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

Waiting on Wednesday: The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski



Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.
The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement…if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.
As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.


I read the Winner's Curse last year and the book was absolutely amazing! It had everything that I wanted in a fantasy book (awesome action scenes and lovely romance). I absolutely cannot wait for this book! I got gifted the Winner's Curse for the holiday season and this definitely calls for a re-read! Let's all hope that March will come soon! :)

My name's Ariella and I'm a 16 year old Canadian girl that loves to read. Everything began with a book called the Lightning Thief and from there I was hooked. I enjoy and read all kinds of genres but my favourites are paranormal and mythology. I love reading YA books but I love Middle Grade books as well. I also blog over at Secrets of Lost Words. You can usually find me crawling on twitter so feel free to contact me!

A Heiress For All Seasons by Sophie Jordan Mini Review

An Heiress For All Seasons (The Debutante Files, #1.5)
When a holiday blizzard brings together a pair of reluctant lovers, the result threatens their reputations … and may cost them their hearts.
Feisty and independent American heiress Violet Howard swears she'll never wed a crusty British aristocrat. Will, the Earl of Merlton, is determined to salvage his family's fortune without succumbing to a marriage of convenience.
But when a snowstorm leaves Violet and Will stranded and alone, their sudden chemistry will challenge good intentions. Seized by a desire that burns through the night, they'll toss reservations aside in favor of the heat found in each other's arms.
Will their passion survive the storm? Will they realize they've found a love to last them through all seasons?

After reading A Good Debutante's Guide To Ruin, I was eager to continue on with the series. I loved how this novella gave the reader a closer look at Will’s character. In A Good Debutante's Guide to Ruin, there wasn’t too much revealed about him, but in this one, he proved to be a really great guy. He was refreshingly upfront with Violet and was quick to reassure her how much he cared about her, no matter the circumstances. Violet’s determination not to fall into his arms right away was pretty humorous, too, although towards the end I just wanted her to realize how much Will cared about her.

As sometimes can be the problem with novellas, I felt like certain parts of the story were rushed. Will and Violet’s relationship was sweet, but it definitely moved quickly. Also, I felt like the ending was somewhat predictable, with the conflict being solved fairly easily. Nonetheless, this was still a super cute holiday read!

Max and Aurelia were both in this one, too, and like always, they had such epic banter <3 I can’t wait to read their story! I’d give A Heiress for All Seasons 3 out of 5 flowers.
