[Bloggers In The Attic] Sunday Tea: Required Reading

The Bloggers in the Attic is a discussion chain. And what is a discussion chain? Well, it’s pretty simple and with few steps.

Me and other eleven bloggers united together to discuss a common topic, covering the whole arc of February, and sharing our unique perspective. I created the initiative with the wish to create a discussion space that could explore a normal topic for different part of the world.

The rules to participate are pretty simple. So, if you ever wish to take part in the future discussion, please just comment under Camilla’s introduction and first post. Every topic will be discussed bi-monthly, so the next round will be up in April. There’s plenty of time to join in, but the best option is always to enter early. Also, take a look to the group banner!

Learn more about Camilla’s discussion chain in her post (The Bloggers in the Attic ||Social issue and required reads in Italy) here!  Also, don’t forget to check out the previous post in the chain from Isabelle @ Bookwyrm Bites and the next one on the 12th from Dany @ Dany’s Book Blog

The Journey Began With My Mom

Coming from a homeschooled than charter school background, required reading has been a part of my educational journey since I first began to learn to read. My parents (especially my Mom) were adamant that their children would learn to love the written word, and from a very young age we were handed books instead of games to pass away the boredom.

Book-to-Movie Adaptations I’m Excited For

2019 is making itself known in one of the greatest ways possible–adaptions. Now I am a lover and a hater of book to film adaptations, because more often than not the book is always better. However, there have always been a select few that have surpassed the bar of their originator and brought more depth and emotion through the lens rather than through the words.

With a little over 50 different adaptions announced for both TV and Film, I am super stocked for what 2019 has to offer the bookish community and the fans of these beloved books.

As usual, grab some popcorn, get a notepad out, and a take a look at a few of the book to film adaptations that I am stupid excited to see! Continue reading “Book-to-Movie Adaptations I’m Excited For”

I Bet You by Ilsa Madden-Mills [ARC Review]

Publisher: Independently Published
Publication Date: October 25th, 2018
Source: Enticing Journey Book Promotions
Format: eARC
Rating:fangirlstarsfangirlstarsfangirlstars.5

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.

Sexy AthleteI bet you…
Penelope GrahamBurn in hell, quarterback. 

The text is random but Penelope figures out exactly who “Sexy Athlete” is. And why she shouldn’t take his wager.

Ryker Voss.
Football star.
Walks on water and God’s gift to women.
Just ask him. 

His bet? He promises Penelope he’ll win her the heart of the guy she’s been crushing on. His plan—good old-fashioned jealousy. Once her crush sees her kissing Ryker, he’ll realize what he’s missing. Sounds legit, right? The only question is…why is Ryker being so nice to her?

Penelope Graham.
Virgin.
Lover of sparkly vampires and calculus.
His mortal enemy.

Penelope knows she shouldn’t trust a jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs a date to Homecoming? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that could destroy Penelope’s heart forever.

Will the quarterback score the good girl or will his secrets mean everyone loses this game of love?
