Book Summary:

Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond. But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.

In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder. But when a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide.

But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.

J.T. Ellison’s pulse-pounding new novel examines the tenuous bonds of friendship, the power of lies and the desperate lengths people will go to to protect their secrets.

November Wrap Up 2019

Hello, everyone! It’s supposed to snow tonight and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I like snow more when I know I don’t have to be out in it. I think snow is beautiful but I’m not fond of the cold. Anyway, I’ve been in a reading slump. I’m not sure why but I’m just not been in a reading mood. I finally picked up Lock Every Door by Riley Sager and I’ve been reading it. I’ve read 98 pages and I’m enjoying it. I’m hoping I left my slump in November.

I read three books in November. I enjoyed all the books I did read though, so that was nice.

Hello, everyone!  Happy December! November was a very interesting month. My mom ended up in the hospital. As soon as she got out I ended up in the hospital. I’ve also been in a reading slump. Here’s hoping December turns out to be nicer than November. There are a lot of things I’m looking forward to this month!

Stolen Princess by Nikki Jefford Blog Tour

Stolen Princess
Nikki Jefford
(Royal Conquest Saga #1)
Publication date: November 11th 2018
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, New Adult, Retelling

She sacrificed herself to save her family from poverty…

The ball was only the beginning.

It wasn’t enough to kill my mate, heir to the throne. My obsessive Fae brother-in-law wants the crown. And he wants me ruling by his side.

I thought I was done with romance until a certain pompous elf reappeared in my life at the illustrious Monster Ball. A little teasing led to bruised lips and captured hearts. No one wants Jhaeros and me to be together, not even my favorite sister, Melarue. But she’s a teenager just coming into her elemental powers and discovering boys—the wrong kind—the type I want to shoot arrows through.

My royal in-laws are playing a treacherous game, and my brother-in-law is determined to get what he wants. But this elf princess no longer has a master. I don’t want a crown. I want freedom, family, and the love of a lifetime. But love might be the one thing that destroys us all.

**This book will now include the prequel novella Enemies and Lovers.

My Review

Coral by Sara Ella Blog Tour Review and Favorite Quotes

book cover(1)


by Sara Ella
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: November 12th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retellings, Mermaids, Fairy Tales




Multiple award-winning young adult author Sara Ella reimagines The Little Mermaid in a powerful and unexpected way.


Sixteen-year-old mermaid Coral has always been different, standing out from her stoic sisters in a society where blending in is key. Worse yet, she fears she has been afflicted with the dreaded Disease. Said to be carried by humans, the Disease imposes emotions on its victims, causing them to commit unspeakable acts. The growing illness inside her, while terrifying, fascinates her very core. Where others see danger, Coral sees life. Could it be the colorless merfolk who are truly ill?


Above the sea, seventeen-year-old Brooke Jordan has nothing left to give. A homeless girl abandoned and forgotten, the only thing Brooke can rely on is the ocean. Her aching feet find refuge within the cool and comforting waves, while her broken heart grows harder with each passing day. When Brooke’s and Coral’s worlds collide, everything alters in an instant. From learning to stand alone, to discovering the strength it takes to rely on another, the girls find that living requires taking that first painful breath. Each must make sacrifices, and when it comes to finding true love? Let’s just say the boys in their lives must learn to swim if they’re ever going to survive the storms.


Battling the odds against them, the girls will do whatever it takes to survive. But what must end for love and life to finally begin?


Taking a new twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale, this modern-day story explores mental health from several perspectives, questioning what it means to be human in a world where humanity often seems lost.

My Review

Coral was an interesting twist on The Little Mermaid. This book  is a beautiful, emotional read. That being said there are a lot of trigger warnings for this book.  I thought the author did a great job dealing with all the heavy topics in this book. The characters are all so well written. The writing is beautiful.  It was hard to read at times but so inspiring and hopeful too.

Favorite Quotes

Hope. A foolish girl’s dream. Time. An unavoidable monster.

” If you say you’re okay, than you are. If you voice you are fine, what’s to stop you from being so?”

Light always awaited her on the other end.



Once upon a time, Sara Ella dreamed she would marry a prince and live in a Disney castle. Today, she spends her days throwing living room dance parties for her two princesses, raising her little prince to be a king, and conquering realms of her own imaginings. Oh, and her husband is definitely more swoon-worthy than any Prince Charming.


Sara’s UNBLEMISHED trilogy has received high praise and multiple awards, but none as rewarding as the love and support she receives from her readers every day. Her new story CORAL, a reimagining of THE LITTLE MERMAID, releases in the fall of 2019.


When she’s not on deadline, Sara Ella can most often be found fangirling on Twitter, Instagram, or her YouTube channel. She may or may not be obsessed with #Bookstagram, and she has a serious condition known as “Coffee Snob-itis.” She believes “Happily Ever After is Never Far Away.”
