Weekly Latte Rewind is a weekly feature where we will recap posts, books read, books we received and other bookish stuff. We’ve linked to Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I picked a co-blogger! I’m super happy with my decision. She’ll be posting some of her old reviews in the month of December, but she’ll be officially introduced in January 🙂


  • On Sunday my boyfriend, our friends, and I had an early Christmas dinner and karaoke sessions! We had such a blast. The food was delicious, the company was great, and we were able to sing a few Hamilton songs on karaoke! My boyfriend stayed over at my house since my house is closer to his job and the dinner ended really late. I was able to wake up early and make him an omelet with toasts!
  • On Wednesday I had been craving Papa John’s pizza with garlic sauce. I mentioned that to my boyfriend and when he got out of work, he called me to tell me to go to Papa John’s and order the pizza that he would pay for it. And boyfriend of the year award goes to him, obviously. To you guys, it may seem like nothing, but to me, it was the sweetest thing ever.

I received London Belongs to Me to review and host a giveaway. I was skeptical about it but after reading the description, I feel like I will love it. I GOT LUCIAN DIVINE‘s paperback from the author for review!! EEEEEEK! I love Renee Carlino! I’ll be buddy reading this with my co-blogger 😀


BOTM reached out to me (and a few other Bookstagrammers) to help promote the fact that they are giving away free 6-month subscriptions! And I got these books, which I’m so happy about.

I also got the eARC for Lucian Divine! And another Lauren Layne book! I seriously hope this author never stops writing.



hard-hitter the secret of a heart note

I absolutely loved Hard Hitter!!! The Secret of a Heart Note was such a cute read. Look out for my review this coming week!












Win a paperback of LONDON BELONGS TO ME!
Alex is a recent college graduate from Florida in love with London, pop culture, and comic cons! (Like many of us, right?) She’s an outsider, a geeky fangirl with dreams of becoming a playwright in a city she’s loved from afar. After a betrayal, Alex flees to London where she believes she belongs. But her past of panic attacks and broken relationships is hard to escape. When her demons team up with a jealous rival determined to destroy her new life, Alex begins to question her life-long dream, her new friends, and whether London is where she truly belongs.

  2. Aww your boyfriend sounds super sweet! My husband has surprised me like that before. lol! I was complaining that I really wanted these pepperoni rolls with the dipping sauce and next thing I knew the place came knocking on my door with exactly what I wanted, and already paid for. LOL! Yayy for nice guys! And yes, I absolutely love Lauren Layne! I just got that same book from NetGalley, I can’t wait to read it!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Your books look tempting! London Belongs to Me is one I’d like to read.

    Pretty bookstagram photos. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your week. That pizza makes me hungry!

  7. Genesis! I’m so glad you found a new co-blogger! That’s awesome news. 🙂

    Also – again and again your BF sounds like such a great guy. I’m so happy you found someone to rival a book boyfriend – and that’s saying something! 😉

    I love the cover for What Light and I’ve seen it around so much but I actually have NO idea what it is about. From the cover I’ve been guessing YA Contemporary? Hope you’re enjoying it in any case!

  8. The Book Disciple

    Yay for a new coblogger! Can’t wait to meet her! I’m serious, your boyfriend could write a how to guide and make a LOT of money 🙂
    Enjoy your books! I’m glad to hear you loved Hard Hitter! Its coming up soon on my TBR and I loved book 1! Have a great week!

    London Belongs to Me looks good. I am headed over to London in March. It will be my third time but this time will be the longest I have been there. I went 25 yrs ago in High school and then 7 years ago for just a few hours. I will be there a week this time with my family.
    I am very curious what you will think of What Light. I feel like a black sheep cause I did not enjoy it at all. I thought it was dull and predictable. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood when i was reading it.
    Have a great week.

  10. Sounds like an amazing week Karaoke and pizza how can it not be perfect. Your boyfriend sounds like a sweetheart!!! I love your book and coffee pictures did you do the latte art? I’ve been playing with it but I’m still failing lol. Love all your new books. I hope you enjoy them all. Have a great week and happy reading.
