NetGalley Approvals that Made me Feel Accomplished as Blogger


Hi guys! The other day I saw Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions talking about some NetGalley Approvals that made her feel accomplished as a blogger. After seeing her talking about that I thought it was a great idea and decided I wanted to do the same so here it is. Just like Cristina almost right after I started a book blog I signed to NetGalley right away and went crazy about it. So far I had 193 approvals and nowadays I know which books I’m going to get approved to and which ones I won’t. That doesn’t mean I won’t request the books I think I’m not going to get because I always have to try my luck :P. Some of those books are the ones I’m going to be talking about this post because I wasn’t expecting to be approved for any of these. So here are some NetGalley Approvals that Made me Feel Accomplished as a Blogger. Continue reading

Entangled: Crush

Goodreads Synopsis:

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, swoon-worthy kisses, and sexy hockey players. It may cause you to watch a hockey game…or ten.

Sixteen-year-old Claudia Waring has never kissed a boy. Never been popular. Never been to a hockey game. All that’s about to change. Assigned to tutor Chris Winslow, a prank-loving, gorgeous hockey player, Claudia’s perfectly planned life immediately veers off course. And she kind of likes it. But as fun as Chris is, she knows she’ll never fit in his world.

After his latest prank lands him in hot water, Chris has to get serious about school or lose hockey. Not an easy thing for someone as carefree as the defenseman. The biggest problem, though, is how much he wants to help his cute, buttoned-up tutor loosen up a little. But while confidence has never been a problem for him, around Claudia, Chris is all nerves. Why would a girl as smart as her ever fall for a jock like him?

Jennifer Ellision

Goodreads Synopsis:

Unemployed. Broke. Maid of Honor.

All (unfortunately) words that describe Em Hayes.

Without any job leads in San Francisco, Em caves to her mother’s promise of free rent and returns home. Her best friend, Nikki, couldn’t be more thrilled. Em’s degree in Event Management is gathering dust, and what better way to put it to use than planning Nikki’s wedding?

There’s just one flaw in that plan: Cole Connors. The girls’ former roommate. And part of the reason Em hasn’t been back since college graduation.

Em’s never been able to forget Cole—or how close they were before she pushed him aside and ran for the hills. Cole’s never forgotten Em either— but in the past two years, she hasn’t given him much choice but to try.

And, according to Nikki, there’s no better pair to plan the wedding of her dreams.

Em’s usually good at squashing messy feelings, but being around Cole again brings them all rushing to the surface.

And this time, she’s not sure she wants to run.

Right Kind of Mistake (Right Kind of Mistake #1) by Rebecca Thomas – eARC Review

Right Kind of Mistake (Right Kind of Mistake, #1)Publication Date:

November 9th 2015


Leap Books: SHINE

Goodreads Synopsis: 

Haylie Keene wants to put the past behind her and move on after her jock boyfriend cheats on her. Her friends convince her that a hook-up (or maybe a little revenge sex) is the best place to start. Except she’s steering clear of hockey players, as in, never ever again.

Alaska State all-star defenseman Cam Erickson is a calculated risk taker. He weighs the pros and cons and knows Haylie is a bad investment on so many levels, but something about her gets under his skin. And once he makes up his mind, he pulls out all the stops to make her his.

Haylie soon realizes that Cam’s quiet charm and unfaltering confidence is like a magnet she doesn’t want to refuse. Their chemistry is undeniable and maybe the rules she set up for herself are worth reconsidering.

Still heartbroken, Haylie is only looking for a few hours of pure bliss. But hockey hero Cam wants more than a hook-up. His goal? Ice-melting romance.

Forever Yours

Goodreads Synopsis: 

Their passion burned hotter than the stars . . .

For Josephine “Jo” Kramer, nothing has ever been easy. When she earns a summer internship in Puerto Rico, working at one of the world’s preeminent scientific facilities, she’ll let nothing distract her. Not her own insecurities, not the arrogant scientists, and definitely not her tall, chiseled research partner, Adam.

For Adam McCay, physics is simple-it’s women who are complicated. Especially brilliant, beautiful ones like Jo. From the moment they meet, he can feel the heat smoldering deep beneath her icy exterior. And Adam knows just what it will take to make Jo melt . . .

Under the endless stars of a tropical sky, Jo and Adam indulge their every desire. But as their internship comes to an end, their perfect island paradise is threatened. Was their time together a summer fling? Or is their passion hot enough to last the long winter nights?


*I was provided an eARC by Forever Romance via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I started this book really not knowing what to expect but I actually enjoyed it. This book takes place in Puerto Rico where the main characters are spending a summer there, doing an internship in a famous astronomical science facility. With me being a science girl I knew that I wanted to read this book (I actually thought of studying Astronomy before choosing Marine Biology and Biotechnology so it’s something that interests me a lot 😀 ).
I actually started this book by not liking the main character Jo. The way she acted would make me really mad but through out the book we find out why she is like this. Now let’s talk about Adam. I really liked him from the beginning and I loved the way that he helped Jo during the book. Every time that she needed him he was there even if said that she didn’t want him there (when she wanted). Their interactions after the middle of the book sometimes were extremely cute and you could see how much Adam cared about Jo. Another thing I loved about this book was how they both changes for better because they were with each other, especially Jo. This was a super cute read but let me tell you that it has some mature content so it’s not something that everyone would like to read. My only problem with this book was that the beginning was a little bit slow but after a few chapters it was in the right pace and I was able to fly through the book. One thing that I absolutely loves was the epilogue. I’m sucker for epilogues and I love them so it was great to see where the characters were one year later.
Overall, this book was even better than I was expecting and it really surprised. While I know that this book is not for everyone I think that everyone that loves new adult contemporary should try this out. It will probably surprise you 🙂 !
