New Years Book Tag!

Happy New Year everyone! It is the first day of 2021 and I'm as excited for a new year as you can be with the year we have just had. I'm looking forward to seeing what 2021 hold for me and my blog.

What Happened in 2020?

It is the last day of 2020 (FINALLY!). I cannot believe that tomorrow we will finally be in 2021. This past year has both flown by but also dragged in such an awful way. Despite the terrible things the year has thrown at us all I though it would be entertaining to look back on all my 'What Happened in?' posts of 2020 and see what happened throughout 2020. Here is what happened in 2020!

This is Not the Jess Show – Anna Carey

Like any other teenager, Jess Flynn is just trying to get through her junior year without drama . . . but drama seems to keep finding her. Between a new crush on her childhood best friend, overprotective parents cramping her social life, and her younger sister’s worsening health, the only constant is change—and her hometown of Swickley, which feels smaller by the day.

Grown – Tiffany D. Jackson

When Enchanted Jones wakes with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one—the police and Korey’s fans included—has more questions than she does. All she really knows is that this isn't how things are supposed to be. Korey was Enchanted’s ticket to stardom.
