Amazing books and other bloggers to be honest! I blog because I love books, and I want to get to know other bloggers too. I mean getting to know other people who love books as much as you do, reading their posts, and them reading mine is just the greatest feeling.

Five Days of Romance: Day 2 – Romantic Book Postcards

Welcome to my second day of Five Days of Romance! Today I have romantic and funny bookish postcards to share with you all. Save them, share them, and send them to your friends and loved ones. Just don’t claim them as your own when asked. I had so much fun making these, I love pick up lines and puns and whatnot, which is why this was so much fun. These postcards are perfect in time for Valentine’s Day on Tuesday.

Freebie Friday #4

freebiefriday1

Happy Friday my readers!

I hope it’s a good one, and if not then tomorrow is another day and I have a few free books that’ll hopefully make it at least a little bit better. To be honest, sometimes when I don’t know what to do or just feel down I love going on Amazon to look for free and/or cheap ebooks. There is nothing like book shopping to brighten your mood, am I right? One day I’ll have to show you my kindle library, it’s enormous and mostly unread, but you know what they say, you just can’t have too many books!

This week for Freebie Friday I have two books from the The London Lovers series. The series currently consists of five books which can all be read as a standalone. The ones I’ll recommend here today is the first and the third book in the series, Becoming Us by Amy Daws and London Bound by Amy Daws. Both of these books are good old New Adult romance books that you just can’t get enough of.

Remember guys, the books I recommend are free the moment I publish my post but I can never guarantee they’re free for long so once you see it, grab it! That’s what I do.

The dreaded friend-zone…

The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking?

When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can’t feel any lower… Brody stumbles into my path-barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I’ve ever experienced.

But Brody has a past.

A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn’t a total joke, Jake comes back into my life… and messes things up… possibly for good.

Goodreads.

Amazon.

When Leslie Lincoln, a spunky, red-headed American, suffers an awkward moment with an arousingly-sexy British man—she thinks her life can’t get any more pathetic.

She’s done with men.
She doesn’t need them.
She especially doesn’t need their muscular thighs. No siree, she’s going to forget all about the brooding, complicated, and seductive “Theo” who captivated her on the dance floor of a London nightclub.

Keep telling yourself that, Lez…

Immersing herself into a new type of romantic cleanse, Leslie thinks she’ll never lay eyes on Theo again. But somehow, he’s managed to bulldoze his way back in—her cheetah-print onesie pajamas be damned.

He wants more. She wants to run. But he can’t seem to let her go. Both of them have a past—and neither want to share. How can love possibly survive in darkness?

Introductions

Hey fellow reader, writer and friend, welcome to my blog!

My name is Olivia Chanel, and since this blog is new and you might not know me I’m here to let you know I’m deeply passionate about books. I’ve had other blogs before, one about books and one not so much, but recently I have found myself missing a place where I can post my reviews and share my love for books with other kindred spirits that feel the same way. I’ll keep this introduction rather short, more can be read about me on my About page, but since I know you probably want an idea of who I am as a person without doing that I’ll give you a few quick facts.

I am, for better and for worse, a:

  • Scorpio
  • INFP
  • Ravenclaw
  • Green eyed brunette
  • University student
  • Swedish resident
  • Summer person

I hope you feel like you know me a little bit better now. On this blog I will post book reviews, discussions, book recommendations and a little bit about my writing journey. If this interests you, don’t hesitate to follow me by entering your email on the side bar to the right (that is right, right? Sorry another fact I should have mentioned is that I suck at telling left from right. Weird, I know!).

Anyway, I hope you’re currently reading a good book!

Best wishes,

Olivia Chanel
