BATMGoodreads Synopsis:

There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit. 

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous- local Game Warden, reclusive mountain man, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions- or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands- to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

SBBGoodreads Synopsis:

When twenty-four-year-old Felicity Harper is dragged to a sugar party, an event where wealthy men and women seek “companionship,” she never expects this one simple decision to drastically change her whole life.

Her past is nothing but broken dreams and heartache. Her present is detached and dull. And her future? Well, before meeting Theodore Darcy, the famed film director, writer, producer and CEO of Darcy Entertainment, she would have expected more of the same. Love is just a fantasy and she wants no part of it—even if she can’t deny the undeniable attraction between the two of them.

So their arrangement is simple: sex with no strings attached. But as their intimacy becomes more powerful, so do Felicity’s demons. Can Theo really shoulder her past and his own? And could Felicity even let him?

What Makes You Follow a Blog?

Hi all!

A small fact about Beaucoupbooks is that its stats this year have been pretty poor. I used to post three times a week, and now I’m lucky if I make one post a week. I don’t regret this change, because it felt necessary that I take a step back from blogging this year, but the outcome from this decision is that my blog suffered in terms of stats.

Recently I’ve also noticed that a lot of the bloggers I was friendly with a year ago seem to have slowly disappeared for a variety of reasons, such as careers, school, and health reasons. Some have even deleted their blogs, and its only when I’ve searched for their blogs on WordPress have I discovered that they’ve been deleted.

I love my little blog, and I’m eager to inject some life back into it. Since my blog has been struggling this year, I was wondering: what makes you want to follow someone’s blog?

My Bookish Decor Wishlist

I’ve mentioned before on my blog that I’m really into interior design. I’ve decorated my bedroom several times, not only because it’s fun, but I also love the idea of having my room be a space that reflects my personality. Since I love both literature and design, I figured why not make a post about some of my favourite bookish decor items.

I’m quite minimalist, so a lot of the items I would like in my home are quite plain, honestly. I’m not much of a fan of clutter, but if it’s bookish, I can let it slide. Anyways…

After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he’s also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts. 

With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus. 

But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best—and that’s Levi Black. 

But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?
