Blurb:

There was a lot I did to get to this point, to get 42 million followers. Some of it I was proud of, most of it I wasn’t.

There was a group of us, all internet celebrities, and everyone wanted in, which is how six of us ended up living in this mansion, a camera always on, the public always watching. Two months and nine carefully scripted TV episodes that would get us more of the three F’s we were desperately chasing.

Fame. Fortune. Followers.

I knew my role. I was Emma, the unlikeable one. The dark villain with the devious smile. The package of dynamite that would blow up any chance of peaceful living and harmony.

Cash knew his role. He was the good guy. The lovable one. The one that everyone, even the darkest cast member of them all, would fall in love with.

They were supposed to just be roles.
None of it was supposed to be real.

My heart didn’t get that memo.

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Books on My TBR with Amputee Reps

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Last Monday we had a big tree fall in our front yard, but away from our house. This Monday someone ran a red light and hit the vehicle my son was in on the way to camp. Thank you Lord, no one was hurt!

Today’s Top Ten topic is Books on My Summer 2021 TBR. I’m changing it up a bit, though. I had a conversation last year with Misty at Misty’s Book Space about the lack of amputee reps in books. So, I’ve been wanting to bring some light onto the topic. It just took me so long to do so after dealing with the cancer stuff. Speaking of cancer stuff, my father-in-law just had another scan done, and he’s continuing to improve for now! We’re so thankful!

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Books I Loved That Made Me Want More Like Them

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! We had a nasty storm come through yesterday, and the winds took out one of the big trees in front our house. Praise God it didn’t fall on our house and the top of it just missed a utility pole. I was at Walmart with my kids when the storm hit. Another tree fell on our road, and my boys and I got out of the car to clean up some of the debris to keep from doing any damage to my car or anyone else’s for that matter.

Today’s Top Ten topic is Books I Loved that Made Me Want More Books Like Them. Such a good question! I often have books that inspire me to want more on a specific topic!

First Lines Fridays 6/4/21

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these posts, but I was in the mood today!

Happy Friday!! I hope you all have had a great week!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet — you need to hook the reader first.
  • Finally… reveal the book!
