Review: The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker

img_0361The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker

Release: August 7, 2018

Publisher: Atria Books

Source: E-book (US)

Pages: 388

Amazon / Book Depository

Rating: ★★★★.5☆ (4.5/5)

Synopsis via Goodreads: Calla Fletcher wasn’t even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

December Wrap Up | 2018

Happy January everyone! I cannot believe 2019 is here, it still sometimes feels like its 2014. It’s that time of the month to reflect back upon the books I read in the previous few weeks so today I’ll be sharing with you lovely folks the books I read in December!

I finished five in total which is pretty good considering I hadn’t finished a single book before that since August. Getting adjusted to college was definitely taking up a lot more time and energy than I thought, but I’m super excited to go back and use my free time for reading!

2018 End of the Year Book Survey!

Happy 2019 friends! Sorry for the week long break, I was on vacation and wanted to ring in the new year with as much energy as possible for my blog. I hope you all are having a lovely start to this new chapter, and I seriously cannot wait to see what the next 12 months have in store!

For today’s post, I thought I would reflect back on bookish-related topics in 2018. I feel like a perfect way to do so is by doing the End of the Year Book Survey created by The Perpetual Page-Turner! This is a favorite of mine and I’m very interested to see what books will pop back into my memory while writing this ❤️

Review: Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett

Release: April 16, 2019

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Source: Advanced Reader’s Copy (E-ARC)

Pages: 432

Amazon / Book Depository

Rating: ★★★★.5☆ (4.5/5)

Synopsis via Goodreads: After an awkward first encounter, Birdie and Daniel are forced to work together in a Seattle hotel where a famous author leads a mysterious and secluded life in this romantic contemporary novel from the author of Alex, Approximately.

Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination. Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents, she’s cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel.

In her new job, Birdie hopes to blossom from introverted dreamer to brave pioneer, and gregarious Daniel Aoki volunteers to be her guide. The hotel’s charismatic young van driver shares the same nocturnal shift and patronizes the waterfront Moonlight Diner where she waits for the early morning ferry after work. Daniel also shares her appetite for intrigue, and he’s stumbled upon a real-life mystery: a famous reclusive writer—never before seen in public—might be secretly meeting someone at the hotel.

To uncover the writer’s puzzling identity, Birdie must come out of her shell…discovering that most confounding mystery of all may be her growing feelings for the elusive riddle that is Daniel.
