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.


  • My boyfriend came to see me on Sunday and we went Pokemon Go hunting and to Cafelados, which is a great coffee shop.


  • My boyfriend surprised me with something I’ve been anticipating since last year. As some of you know, when my boyfriend asked me to be his girlfriend last year, he went all out with every single detail. He also gave me a gift, which was An Ember in the Ashes and inside was the post-it note that said if I would be his girlfriend. This year, he surprised me by pre-ordering A Torch Against the Night a few days ago. We both use my Amazon Prime account so everything he buys, I get e-mailed about so Amazon spilled the beans lol I’m so excited, though! I can’t wait till I have that gorgeous book in my hands! I got lucky with my guy <3


for review

perfectly imperfect billionaire on the loose just friends furious rush audio

I love the cover for Perfectly Imperfect! I’ve never read a book by Harper Sloan so this will be my first! I don’t know where I saw Billionaire on the Loose but as soon as I read the description, I had to have it. Monica Murphy has another YA book coming up, which I’m excited to read. Just Friends seems right up my alley. Finally, Furious Rush is in my possession! I was approved for the audio and I was so damn happy!

I’ve always wanted to read Queen of Someday and it’s free! (Click on the cover to direct buy link on Amazon) I had read Little Black Dresses, Little White Lies (click image for review) and really loved it! I won a copy through the YA Reads Debut Author Bash during the summer and I finally have the gorgeous book!


homecoming for better or worse smut audio cover vein of love

I really liked Homecoming (cover for review). It’s my first book by this author, but it won’t be my last. For Better or Worse is AMAZING! I love love love love it!! I’m in love with that story. Head over heels in love! I finally finished listening to Smut. I enjoyed it quite a lot. Vein of Love was one heck of a surprise! I didn’t have many expectations for it, but holy damn, that was brilliant! I cannot wait for the second book!


perfectly imperfect roman crazy

I started Perfectly Imperfect and I’m really liking it so far. I’ll finally start Roman Crazy! I’ll be starting this one tomorrow (Sunday) when I get back from my stay at le boyfriend’s house.

One of my favorite reads of the year is currently on sale during the pre-order time! After release date on August 30th, the price will increase. When Stars Collide is a great, and very funny New Adult Romance that is so freaking enjoyable! I seriously loved it. If you pre-order for .99 cents, you get an exclusive short story!

  1. LOL, I love the TORCH preorder surprise story. You poor thing. 😀 Did you guys claim the preorder tote bag? I can’t find the link but it’s somewhere on Penguin Teen’s Twitter page. I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Genesis!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely weekend. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  2. The Book Disciple

    Perfectly Imperfect was good and has such an important message. I hope you enjoy it (Its not my favorite Harper Sloan book though. I LOVE her Corps security and Hope Town books!). Have a wonderful week!

      • The Book Disciple

        I wasn’t a huge fan. I loved the message and all, but I thought it was a bit over done. Like, because the entire book was focusing on her weight, it kind of got annoying. I think I am the only person who didn’t RAVE about it. But, I love her other books!

      • The Book Disciple

        Yep! Great message-not so great delivery! I wanted to like the book, but end the end, it was just meh for me.

  3. AWWWW your boyfriend is so sweet! And that coffee looks AH-MAZZIINNGG! <3 I loved all of your pictures too! (I'm such a fail at taking pics!) teehee! :)And it looks like you have a lot of books to get into! I WANT TO READ THEM ALL! <3

  4. Hey Gen! For Better or Worse was AWESOME! I just loved Heather and Josh’s story so much! One of my favorite Lauren Layne books! Unfortunately, I just didn’t love Smut as much. I’m glad you did, though. Have a great week!!

  5. As always, great week in books Gen!!

    That’s awesome, what your boyfriend did for you. He sounds like a keeper!

    I love, love, LOVED For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne and am even more anxious for Alexis and Logan! I can’t wait for their story.

    I can’t wait to read Roman Crazy so I hope you love it! Billionaire on the Loose sounds awesome! What a sweet boyfriend ♥

    • We do and we don’t. It’s like an hour and a half of a drive. We used to live 10 minutes from each other when he studied but now he’s back where his mom lives. And now he got a job 5 minutes from the house so he’s staying over there. Now I make the trip and stay over sometimes.

      It’s my favorite! It’s so good! I’m getting the books from Gallery so I’m excited because I really want to own them.

  7. I wonder if your boyfriend knows that everytime you mention him on your blog you’re making everyone go “Awwww!” LOL He sounds like such a thoughtful guy. I haven’t read anything by Harper Sloan either but I received Perfectly Imperfect in one of my recent Bookworm Boxes and I’m excited to read it. And Vein of Love… I saw Sarah (Words with Sarah) raving about it, too, so I need to download that one soon!
