I want to start today by saying THANK YOU to each and every one of you for following my blog. I started this little thing a little over a year ago and never imagined it would grow to what it is today! Just to give you a slight back story in case you didn’t already know – my name is Kimberly and I run this blog by myself. It’s just me! 🙂 So it is beyond an honor to have you interested in my blog.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! ❤
I skipped Week In Review last week because of Thanksgiving, so there is A LOT to catch up on 🙂

✦ MY RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE WEEK ✦
★ BULLY & UNTIL YOU by Penelope Douglas. I am currently reading Until You and am loving it so far. If you haven’t read BULLY yet, it is a great hate to love story – I even re-read (okay maybe skimmed) it before starting Until You, which is Bully from Jared’s POV. And don’t worry it is not a re-telling of Bully. I’m about halfway through and already understand Jared’s motivations and actions more than I thought I did in Bully. If you’ve read Bully, Then I highly recommend you read this one! Read my BULLY Review ➤ http://bit.ly/161BMX6
★ TANGLED by Emma Chase. I know this book has been out for a while now, but I am so glad I read it. It is LAUGH OUT LOUD, HOLD YOUR TUMMY, DON’T DRINK WHILE READING FOR YOU MAY END UP SPITTING IT OUT kind of funny. It is told entirely from a male’s POV which makes it even more hilarious. What I loved about it was that it felt like Drew was telling ME his story, and in between it, he would stop to “school” me on the way men think. Brilliant!!
