“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” ― Paulo Coelho If you change “child” in the quote above into kitten, you sum up my life since little Fury came to live with me. I picked him up at the end of January, the little rascal has been with me for over a month now, and there’s no need for television in my house anymore!

I’ve never really been the person to set New Year’s Resolutions, but, reading-wise, 2016 was a disastrous year for me… This is something I aspire to change in the upcoming year.

I pretty much devoured all the previous books in the Wait for You series and I was beyond excited to find out that Brock and Jillian were getting their own story. I am no stranger to Jennifer Armentrout’s books and I am of humble opinion that this series is a feel-good series, these books will make you laugh, they’ll make you cry, but above all, they’ll make you feel.
