Mean Who You Are

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

My Review:


I loved this novella. I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for this tour and couldn't even remember what drew me too it - but I am so glad I did!! This was my first introduction to Elle's work.

Elle has such a great writing style that just draws you in. One thing I picked up from another review was the change of pov's between characters. I'm not sure I would have thought about it too much and in my opinion it didn't affect the story for me.

Josie is one kick ass heroine. I love her feistiness. Keller is gorgeously swoon-worthy and awesome. I really cannot wait to continue with this series. This was the introduction of how Josie and Keller met. 

The plot is quick and to the point. Elle's pace is perfect and the story just sucks you right in. 

Final Thoughts: I think we will see some great things from this author!

Favourite Quotes

"It's too quiet tonight," I say, changing subjects. I'm pretty sure I know exactly what he means by tall walls and I have every intention of keeping them firmly in place. In fact, I might even add a few more rows of bricks and put a roof on top. I've always wanted to live in a fortress."
