Author Interview and Giveaway: Heather Hepler

We Were Beautiful by Heather Hepler is such an amazing story that examines loss, grief, and guilt with my favorite found family trope. Hepler wrote some wonderful characters that show a lot of development throughout the book and I found myself falling in love with them. In this post I’ll be sharing some information about We Were Beautiful, an interview with the author, and you’ll have the chance to win one of five copies of the book!

It’s been a year since fifteen-year-old Mia Hopkins was in the car crash that killed her older sister and left her terribly scarred. The doctors tell her she was lucky to survive. Her therapist says it will take time to heal. The police reports claim there were trace amounts of alcohol in her bloodstream. But no matter how much she tries to reconstruct the events of that fateful night, Mia’s memory is spotty at best. She’s left with accusations, rumors, and guilt so powerful it could consume her.

Sunday Stacks Week Four

Happy Easter, everyone! Last year was my son’s first Easter, but this is the first Easter he hasn’t been in the hospital for! The Easter bunny brought him a Paw Patrol book, some candy, and a new Peppa Pig toothbrush, and at some point during the day he’ll hunt for eggs filled with more candy.

I did so much reading last week and got all of the book’s on my TBR read plus some others! Here are some quick thought’s on the books from last week’s TBR and what I’m hoping to read this week!

This was a buddy read I did with my friend Britt from Geronimo Reads. We Were Beautiful was such an amazing book that examines loss, grief, and guilt with my favorite found family trope!

Sunday Stacks Week Three

Happy Sunday, friends! It’s been a wonderfully rainy weekend for me and I’ve loved it. Last week I didn’t do a highlight on my TBR because I wanted to make a discussion post on Trigger Warnings instead. If you missed that, it would mean a lot to me if you checked it out. It’s a topic I’m very passionate about and I put a lot work into the post.

Even thought I had two weeks to complete the last Sunday Stacks TBR, I’m proud that I got it done! I went through a reading slump at the beginning of the month and wasn’t really able to stay focused on any books I picked up. Thankfully I think I’m finally out of it so I’m looking forward to reading all the books this week!

It broke my heart, but I ended up DNFing Amelia Westlake Was Never Here at page 139 due to problematic content. I was so looking forward to this one and it just wasn’t good for me. At this point it’s definitely the most disappointing book I’ve read of 2019. I have a full review coming April 22.
