[New Adult | Contemporary Romance]

The first time Elliott Youngblood spots Catherine Calhoun, he’s just a boy with a camera, and he’s never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight. Both Elliott and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet they find an easy friendship with each other. But when Catherine needs him most, Elliott is forced to leave town.

Elliott finally returns, but he and Catherine are now different people. He’s a star high school athlete, and she spends all her free time working at her mother’s mysterious bed-and-breakfast. Catherine hasn’t forgiven Elliott for abandoning her, but he’s determined to win back her friendship…and her heart.

Just when Catherine is ready to fully trust Elliott, he becomes the prime suspect in a local tragedy. Despite the town’s growing suspicions, Catherine clings to her love for Elliott. But a devastating secret that Catherine has buried could destroy whatever chance of happiness they have left.

[YA | Contemporary Romance]

Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It’s not a curse or anything, it’s just the way things are, and Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theatre, and fulfilling her dream school’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible.

But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as none other than Juliet–yes, that Juliet–in her high school’s production. It’s a nightmare. No–a disaster. Megan’s not an actress and she’s certainly not a Juliet. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script.

Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen–thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes, and wonders: shouldn’t a girl get to play the lead in her own love story?

Using my TBR Jar again...

I made this TBR Jar back in 2015 and it sat on my shelf all pretty and unused. I had so many review books to get through and then I kind of took I hiatus when I was pregnant and now I am trying to tackle my obscene TBR pile (all while continually adding new review books to my shelves).

The only real reason it has come back to my attention is the fact that my toddler pulls everything she can reach off my shelves. She brought me the jar the other day and wanted to look at the papers inside. So, I dumped it out to take a peak and see if it still applies and it does! 

The things I wrote on the papers were things like: horror, thriller, romance; red cover, blue cover, yellow cover; A, B, C; Kathy Reichs, Bertrice Small. So genres, cover ideas, letters of alphabet to chose a book starting with that letter or books by a certain author. Oh and the best one: book that's been on TBR the longest! 

I have decided that I'll be using this in combination with reading my review copies (trying to get caught up) and reading books for the TBR Pile Challenge (since that had to be predetermined). I hope this will help me tackle my huge pile of unread books.

Do you have a TBR Jar? Either way, what did/would you write on the slips of paper? Leave a comment because you just might inspire me to add more slips to my jar!
