After the last book that I read - a contemporary military romantic suspense - I wanted a change of pace. I still wanted to read a romance novel; my boyfriend and I have an anniversary approaching and romance is in the air. So, I chose a period romance set in England and the Scottish Highlands.

When you picture getting an English Literature degree, you probably imagine being nose-deep in books all the time. I took a couple of film classes while obtaining my English Lit degree.

The best part is that there is so much dystopian literature out there, I get tired of reading them before I run out of books to read. Most of the dystopian books that I read are “classics” - Bradbury, Huxley, Atwood, etc.- but I recently came across a debut novel with a plot that caught my attention.

I mentioned in my review of American Bad Boy by Eddie Cleveland that I’m on the author’s email list. Well, he recently released a new book called Gone Wild and I had the opportunity to snag a copy - so I thought I’d tell you guys my thoughts.
This past week, I've been in Ireland on vacation, which involved two flights of over eight hours. So naturally, I took my Kindle and got some reading done! Since I'm still recovering, you're going to get a list of what I read and some brief thoughts instead of a full review.
