Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…

The Game by Anna Bloom #BookReview

I was a bit nervous when I started reading this book. I know absolutely nothing about Cricket, and I was about to read a book about two avid Cricket players. Luckily for me, I did not need to know anything about Cricket, to follow and enjoy this story. However, after finishing the book, I did find myself wanting to learn more about Cricket. My interest has definitely been piqued. 
I found this story by Anna Bloom to be quite lovely. It was easy to read, entertaining, and kept my attention. I did not get bored, and once I was into the story, I found myself wanting to finish it as soon as possible. Then, once it was over, I found myself wanting more. I think that is how the best books are. They give you a feeling of satisfaction, knowing the whole story, but at the same time you simply want more. 
Anna Bloom did a great job telling the story of Alyssa and Jase. She developed the characters and the plot well. It was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wasn't bothered by the fact, th…

Orphaned by Lyz Kelley #BookReview

Hello! It is that time again, I have a book review for you guys. So, listen, if you have not figured it out by now, I am not great at writing book reviews. I really don't know what I am doing. I also struggle with the desire to tell you guys every single reason why you NEED to read the book, and with not wanting to spoil a single detail for you. So, I fall back on what I like. When I am about to read a book, or choosing which book to read, I tend to rely on the blurb on the cover, and on any reviews that may be available. That being said, I will admit, I have often disliked books others loved, and loved books others did not seem to love. So, reviews only so far. So, when I approach giving a book review, I mostly just go by if I think you should read it or not. Honestly, if ever I find a book you should not read, I would tell you. I would also hope you do read it, and decide for yourself. Yes, I am weird.
I don't know that I will find a book, that I feel you should not read, b…
