What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finish reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Here's my list: 


I'm currently reading Windwitch by Susan Dennard. It's the second book in the Witchlands Series. It's pretty good so far. 






I recently finished reading Pride, Prejudice, and Cheese Grits by Mary Jane Hathaway. It was really good!






I also read By Your Side by Kasie West. Another great book! I loved that it starts out with two kids getting locked in the library for the weekend. 







What's next? I'm not sure.

What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finish reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Here's my list: 


I'm currently reading Pride, Prejudice, and Cheese Grits by Mary Jane Hathaway. So far I'm really enjoying it! 






I recently finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The first half was slow, and a bit confusing, but once I started to understand what was going on and the action picked up it was really good! 





What's next? I think I'll read By Your Side by Kasie West.

What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finish reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Here's my list:


Currently: I'm just a few pages into Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, so I don't have much of an opinion of it yet. 







Yes! After reading 50 pages here and 100 pages there, I finally finished reading A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin! Lol! I want to start the next book soon, and I'll probably read it at the same pace.





I also finished reading Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowel. I loved it! It was a quick read for me, finishing the same day I started it. 






What's next? I'm not sure right now. Maybe something for my Austenesque Lovers Reading Challenge. :)

Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders ~ My Review



Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders 

Publication Date: February 7th, 2017 
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca 
Pages: 352 
Received: ARC E-copy from NetGalley for my honest opinion. 
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars 

Her Body is His Canvas 

A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run. Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret-proof of her abuse, tattooed onto her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she's survived. 

Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma's reluctant to bare herself to anyone, much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she will never understand. But beneath his frightening exterior, Ivan is gentle. Warm. Compassionate. And just as determined to heal Uma's broken heart as he is to destroy the monster who left his mark scrawled across the delicate tapestry of her skin.


I loved Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders! It’s a gritty story about overcoming abuse - not only physical and mental abuse but dealing with the scars left behind. In this case, tattoos. Covering her upper body and arms. Not beautiful tattoos, but ugly reminders that make Uma’s sick to look at - just thinking about it makes her skin crawl.

I was first drawn in by the cover; then the storyline captured my attention. Once I received my copy, I started reading it right away, even though I was in the middle of another book. Thankfully, I was not disappointed. I devoured it! 

Uma comes to a little town in Virginia because there is a clinic there offering help to people who need tattoos remove, but can’t afford it. But first she needs a job, so she answers an ad in the local paper; 

Old hag in need of live-in helper to abuse. Nothing kinky.” 

The "old hag" is Ms. Lloyd. She’s a bizarre old lady, who’s hard to get along with. She usually runs off anyone willing to work for her with her demanding and crazy commands. Uma and Ms. Lloyd have a bit of a rough start, but in the end, it might be the best situation for both of them. 

Ivan, who lives next door to Ms. Lloyd, is an ex-con with anger issues. He works out his aggressions hammering hot metal on an anvil as a blacksmith and pummeling a punching bag with his fists, most of which he does at night, and those rhythmic pounding sounds are both comforting and alluring to Uma. 

Under Her Skin is Adriana Anders debut novel and the first of three in the series. I look forward to reading more of these gritty, emotional romances! 

Mature rating for sexual scenes and strong language.
