lit.review: Getting Even by Sarah Rayner

Getting Even Sarah Rayner

Since my last read was a heavy-hitting historical piece, I decided to change it up this time around.

What would you do if your entire world shifted in front of you? Betrayal is an emotion that strikes deep and cold – and when it happens simultaneously at your workplace and home life, it’s hard to cope. When Orianna is promoted over best friend Ivy, Ivy vows not only to get even but to strike back at everything Orianna loves. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? My review of GETTING EVEN by Sarah Rayner is behind the cut!

style.picks: Fall 2014 Plaid

Fall Trends Plaid

I don’t know what it is – perhaps it’s a mixture of my Scottish heritage and my new found love of the television show OUTLANDER, but I’m borderline obsessed with all things plaid!

Lucky for me, I’m not alone. Plaid is turning out to be a huge trend for Fall 2014, popping up on runways and in stores for all to wear. It’s super easy and versatile to pull off – from a statement piece to a pleated skirt, plaid is so much more than a school girl staple.

My must have plaid items for Fall 2014 are after the cut.

lit.review: Accidents of Marriage by Randy Susan Meyers

Accidents of Marriage

Finally, back in the swing of things!

When I received a NetGallery copy of ACCIDENTS OF MARRIAGE by Randy Susan Meyers, I was expecting another run of the mill chick lit novel about the dissolution of a marriage.

I was so wrong.

ACCIDENTS OF MARRIAGE is a disgustingly frank portrayal of of how anger can taint every relationship it comes in contact with. This is the type of novel that stays with you long after the words end. Keep reading for a full review!
