    30 things I’ve realized now that I’m in my 30s!

    Inspired by various people’s posts, I’ve decided to do mine as well. Let’s backtrack first: during my mid-twenties I kinda accepted that well, I’m old now…that I’m not as young as before (duh!). That sometimes I have back pains in the worst days. That I have to suck it up and face the day. That I have bills to pay so I need to withhold buying things I want. Those stuff. When I actually and officially turned 30 last year,—

    The Proposal

    Author:  Katie Ashley Series: (The Proposition #2) Published: January 10th 2013 by Publisher: Katie Ashley Productions (Self  Published) Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: If you thought there’s no more story left aside from forgiving Aidan and their HEA then you’re wrong. The Proposal is not all about Aidan asking Emma her forgiveness. But we get to see more of them, particularly Aidan. We found out why this guy is a commitment phobe. Plus a sexy doctor which I found—

    On Dublin Street

    Author: Samantha Young Series: (On Dublin Street #1) Published: December 31st 2012 (first published August 31st 2012) Publisher: NAL Trade Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: When it comes to adult book I liked it best when it also offers humor and an actual plot aside from the expected sexy moments. On Dublin Street by Samantha Young shines best when it comes to that. I enjoyed the quirkiness of the female lead, Joss, despite her sarcastic comedic antics serve more—

    Author: R.L. Mathewson Series: (A Neighbor from Hell #1) Published:April 29th 2011 (first published April 1st 2011) Publisher: Rerum Publishing House Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: This book is a playful combination of naughty and funny. And it was a perfect mix. I’m in an adult-contemporary high as of the moment (and the now emerging new category called ‘new adult’). These types of stories are perfect for me because I can breeze through it without problem (especially with my—

    The Proposition

    Author: Katie Ashley Series: The Proposition #1 Published: October 31st 2012 Publisher: Self Published Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I’m a sucker for relationship development that started as a scheme, especially if this scheme involves babies (making babies *winks*). So when I saw this book and read the blurb, reading it is the natural thing to do. This is my kind of book. This is definitely, a hundred percent ‘Mitchii’s’ book. But despite my enthusiasm, I wasn’t planning to—

    Beautiful Disaster

    Author: Jamie McGuire Series: (Beautiful #1) Published: July 12th 2012 (first published May 26th 2011) Publisher: Atria Books Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received a copy  from Atria Books via Netgalley. Thank you. Reading this book for the second time for me is like solving a picture puzzle. The first time was I was hurriedly putting the pieces together. I just wanted to see the picture and wanted to solve it immediately.  So when I’m done the sense of accomplishment—

    Love Unscripted

    Author: Tina Reber Series: (Love #1) Published: Published March 6th 2010 Publisher: Self-Published Categories: Realistic, Contemporary, Romance Rating: I almost DNF-ed this book. The first quarter of the book was boring. When Taryn saved Ryan from the paparazzi and treated him nonchalantly even though he’s this huge Hollywood star, I have a weird feeling from the pit of my stomach (or probably from something I ate that day) that their actions were contrived. She was being cool because this will—

I don’t know exactly what to say about this book. I don’t even know what possessed me to read this book. I haven’t read any reviews of this book so—

    The Demon Lover

    Author: Juliet Dark Series: (Fairwick Chronicles #1) Published: December 27th 2011 Publisher: Ballantine Books Categories: Fantasy, Paranormal Rating: I don’t know if I should be grateful that I have this book loaded on my e-reader. Maybe I should be as it accompanied me the entire day saving me from complete boredom. With no electricity and no place to go, this kept me…busy. But I’ll probably more grateful if it was an entertaining book, but that should be asking too much…I—
