R&R Review Sunday: Kill Devil Hills by Sarah Darlington


Goodreads Blurb:
"He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.

His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be...stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.

Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.

Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.

Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?"

R&R Review Thursday: Escape From Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek (creepily intriguing)


Goodreads Blurb:
"Everyone in Arnn - a small farming town with more legends than residents - knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.

After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.

Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.

To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.

How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?"

Music Monday (4)

Music Monday is a weekly event hosted by Lauren over at Always Me.  Every Monday, you share one or two of your favorite songs you've been enjoying that week to help other people discover new music!  Here are my picks for this week:

Heathens - Twenty One Pilots
I haven't had a chance to seen this movie yet but I love the sound track!  I really love the gritty vibe of this song and it makes you feel all badass.


Wiser - Madilyn Bailey
I love the message of this video (that you're stronger when you've gone through tough times) and all of the featured YouTubers make this video so cool!


What have you been listening to recently?

November Wrap-Up


It's time for my November wrap-up!  November just flew by, honestly.  So much happened this month and unfortunately, not much of that stuff was NaNoWriMo or blogging or reading.  I did get more reviews written and books read than October though so that's something!
