Book Review: Vanquished (Crusade Book 3) by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguié

Crusade Book 3
Title: Vanquished
Author: Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguié
Series: Crusade #3
Pages: 384
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Hope is in short supply, but courage runs deep as the Salamancan hunters recover from a devastating loss. Jenn knows she must rally her team against the Cursed Ones, but her focus is shattered. She’s torn between passion for Antonio, who once fought by her side, and hate for the bloodthirsty vampire he’s become. His volatility is tearing apart their team...and Jenn’s trust.

As the Cursed Ones amass new strength, Team Salamanca must strike together if they hope to survive, let alone defend humanity. Jenn wants to believe Antonio’s loyal to their cause—and their love—but she’s slowly losing her heart to Resistance fighter Noah. And if Antonio’s not careful, he may just end up with a stake in his.

This gripping conclusion to an epic trilogy pairs steamy romance with heart-stopping action, and delivers an ending as dramatic as it is unexpected.

Holder and Viguié did a great job wrapping up their epic crusade series! As always, this book was jammed pack with action!

As this series went on, I found myself caring about the characters more and more. One of the things that I loved most about this series was how readers are able to see each one of the characters grow. We are able to see changes in ALL the characters...including Jamie! Speaking of, he actually grew on me in this book! I found myself somewhat actually liking him!

The only problem I have with this installment is how quickly and nicely things were wrapped up. Despite all of the action, the book seemed to progress kind of slowly; so, I was super surprised when I got to the end and everything was wrapped up in just a few pages. I was waiting for an epic "final battle" to take place, which I did get a battle, but I don't think it was Harry Potter final battle worthy.

Despite this, I am truly glad that I picked up this series, and I can't wait to read more from Holder & Viguié!

Book Review: Goddess Tricked (Mate Run Book 1) by Skylar Blaue

Mate Run Book 1
Title: Goddess Tricked
Author: Skylar Blaue
Series: Mate Run #1
Pages: 140
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥

When a full moon falls on the night of a solar eclipse, it’s called a Blood Moon. The Goddess has a major influence on nights like this, and only complete isolation can keep a Shifter or Spark safe from her supernatural matchmaking.

Carly, a Spark, a.k.a. magic wielder, takes a big risk when she gives into the temptation of a night of fun with her Human best friend. One bad decision after another leaves Carly and her friend in the wrong place. Surrounded by potential Shifter and Spark mates, Carly’s only desire is to make it through the night single. There’s only one way to do that. She’ll have to make a run for it and hope she can avoid waking up mated and pregnant.

**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

From the moment that I laid eyes on the title of chapter one, I knew that this was going to be a fun read. I was definitely not disappointed! This book was non-put downable (is that even a word...oh well whatever 😊), literally I did not put the book down! Instead I read the whole shabang in like three hours.

If you're looking for a book that has some grandeur and talks about the meaning of life, this is not your book. However, if you are looking for a fun quick entertaining read that will have you rolling with laughter, then look no further! The main character and her friend were absolutely hilarious!

As for the world created, I think the author did a great job. She gave us a taste of her world, but not to much, leaving me wanting to learn more. The idea of sparks, werewolves, and humans all coexisting together is pretty great!

I can't wait to see what this author has in store for the rest of this series! I hope that it is just as entertaining as this one!

Book Review: Damned (Crusade Book 2) by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

Crusade book 2
Title: Damned
Author: Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie
Series: Crusade #2
Pages: 544
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

There is a fine line between love and sacrifice…. Antonio would do anything for his beloved fighting partner Jenn. He protects her, even suppresses his vampire cravings to be with her. Together, they defend humanity against the Cursed Ones. But tensions threaten to fracture their hunting team and his loyalty—his love—is called into question.

With an even more sinister power on the rise, Jenn must overcome her personal vendettas.

Antonio and Jenn need each other to survive, but evil lurks at every turn. With humanity’s fate hanging in the balance, they must face down the darkness…or die trying.

Wow! Holder and Viguie really outdid themselves on this one! Clocking in at a little over 500 pages (yes, you heard me...500 PAGES!!) I expected it to have some lulls, as well as some highs. I can't believe how wrong I was! Each page was jam packed with action!

I loved the twists and turns that the plot would take, especially with the fogginess surrounding Aurora's and Sergio's mysterious sire. Just who is he? And, when I finally was given a name I was left with even more questions.

One of my favorite parts of this series (so far) is how each character seems to be battling some kind of inner demon. This was evident in the first installment, but even more so in the second. Every character, and I do mean EVERY character, has some kind of obstacle that they must overcome. This makes me want to root for them even more, even Jamie 😂.

I can't say for sure which installment I like better, but what I do know is that this one introduces more characters. Some I absolutely love, while others just need to make an exit already!

I cannot wait to see what is in store for Jenn and the gang! I'm hoping that the conclusion is bursting apart with action!

"Training, knowledge, can only take you so far. You have to learn to trust yourself, even when you don't want to. The mind notices thousands of minute details that we don't even consciously register...Sometimes the details you've overlooked are miniscule. Sometimes they are glaringly obvious and you just didn't want to see them. Because you were afraid to."

"Sometimes the hardest thing you have to do is fight when you'd rather just give up. You can't give up. No matter what. Not even if your heart is breaking. Not even if everything and everyone you love has been taken from you. You must keep going. Because sometimes, the fight is all you have."

"If he stopped trying so hard, you know...Maybe Antonio needs to eat, drink, and be merry. He's often rather dour, wouldn't you say?"

Top Ten Tuesday #3

Throwback! Ten Books I Loved From My First Year Of Blogging! 


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by the wonderful people at the broke and the bookish. This weeks topic is a throwback to books from your first year of blogging!

I started my blog back in 2015. I can't believe it is three years old! My how they grow up so fast...Anyways, here are ten books from 2015 that I reviewed on the ole blog here that I loved! 😍



1. Trylle Tilogy by Amanda Hocking

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the complete Trylle trilogy! Switched, Torn, & Ascend were all bound in one glorious paperback! I didn't have to wait to read the next books, because they were already at my fingertips. I think I read all three almost non-stop. I absolutely loved this series! Hocking did a fantastic job!

You can see my review of the Trylle Trilogy here! (P.S. This is my very first review! 😁)


2. Hidden Wings by Cameo Renae

I remember picking up this book on a snow day and not putting it down. Isn't that what snow days are for, binge reading? Anywho, I really enjoyed reading Hidden Wings! It was my first taste of angels & demons, and it was a great introduction.

Check out my review of Hidden Wings here!


3. The Selection by Kiera Cass

This is one of those books that I didn't have very high hopes for, but instead ended up loving! In my review, I describe this book as The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor, which I think is a pretty great description! Miss Cass' novel has quickly became one of my all time favorite books! On a side note, the dresses on the covers are gorgeous, and I think they would look amazing in my closet 😉!

Check out my review of The Selection here!


4. Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

This was the first New Adult book that I have ever read, and I have been hooked on the genre ever since! Additionally, I love Ivy's writing style and have made it a goal of mine to read all of her books...yes, all of them! Flight is exceptionally cute, and who wouldn't want to have a lavender land rover?

You can see my review of Flight here!


5. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This book is amazing and actually inspired me to start my very own book blog! The characters are fantastic and the story-line is super original. Forget Daemon Salvatore, I want my very own Daemon Black!

Look at my review of Obsidian here!


6. Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

I love werewolves, and this book made me love reading about them even more! The characters in this series are superb! I want a best friend just like Jen!

You can see my review of Prince of Wolves here!


7. Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

All I can say about this one is thank you so much Karen Marie Moning for writing such a fabulous story! The plot is extremely unique, and I never knew what was going to happen next. I also appreciated the scenery of Ireland. I've never been there, but I would absolutely love to visit some time!

Check out my review of Darkfever here!


8. Saving Angel by J.L. Weil

If you love Armentrout's Lux series, then you're more than likely to fall in love with J.L. Weil's Saving Angel. Although I have yet to read the rest of the Divisia series, I do know that Obsidian and Saving Angel are eerily similar.

You can see my review of Saving Angel here!


9. Everlasting by Candace Knoebel

This is a great book involving all things magical! In some ways, the book reminds me of Divergent, I just hope that this series has a much more satisfying ending!

Read my review of Everlasting here!


10. Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell

This novel was assigned to me in one of my classes, and although it isn't my typical fanfare, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Not to mention, the movie is great too!

Look at my review of Winter's Bone here!

So what do you think? Have you read any of these awesome books?

Top Ten Tuesday #2

Ten Books That Were Tough To Get Through

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by the wonderful people at the broke and the bookish. This week's theme involved books that were pretty tough to get through. 

If you've read as many books as I have (or even if you haven't), then you know that not all books are easy reads that you just breeze through. There are also those that you can only manage to read a chapter of at a time. In some cases, the ending is worth it, but in others, not so much...

I've rounded up a list of ten books for you that were somewhat painful at times to get though. Enjoy 😊


1) The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

This was an extremely tough one! In high school I had to read AND do a book report on Hawthorne's greatest work. I was definitely not impressed. The book seemed to drag on for me, and half the time I didn't know what exactly was happening. However, I will give it the benefit of the doubt, since it is a classic and written in old english. It's just not for me!


2) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

For my english class I was assigned to read this classic and write a report on it during the summer. I took an instant disliking to the novel. I couldn't stand the characters! The novel seemed to go on and on. Later on in the story however, some characters were introduced that I really enjoyed. I kind of want to give this classic another try, since having it assigned to me during the summer could have influenced my opinion of the book. 


3) Dark Secrets by A.M. Hudson

I love fantasy romances, and thought that I would enjoy Dark Secrets. The author boasted that this was first and foremost a romance, not a vampire novel. Ample warning was given about this, but I still don't understand why. I believe that more warning should have been given about how much of a downer the female MC was. It took me almost two months to finish this book...yes two whole months! I love strong characters that can face anything, and this book just didn't have any. 

You can check out my review of Dark Secrets here!


4) Potential by M.L. Ridener

It's not that this book was to hard for me to get through, but it was instead way too easy. I wanted so much more, more story, more descriptions, and definitely more character development. It was the review of this one that was hard for me to get through! Don't get me wrong, Potential does have a LOT of potential.

See my review of Potential here!


5) The Iron in Blood by Jenny Doe

I found this one for free on Amazon, and was instantly intrigued by its description. The actual book however was much less intriguing for me. I just had a really hard time with the story, which was going in a way different direction than what I thought it should be. For me, it was jut a tough one.


6) Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz

This entire series has so many positive reviews, and I thought that I would be one of those people, just in love with the book. However, I wasn't. I haven't read the rest of the series, just the first installment, so I'm hoping that it does get better. I just couldn't seem to get into the story, even though it seemed like something that I would have loved!


7) Burden by Lila Felix

This book reminded me a lot of Potential, great idea but a little lacking. I wanted way more depth to the characters! There were parts that would show a glimmer of hope, but then the story would just move on. It wasn't a long book, but it still took me a while to get though!

Check out my review of Burden here!


8) Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

This is the only book on this list that I didn't finish. I started this book in junior high, and I'll never forget it. I didn't get far into the book, and I don't remember why exactly I didn't like it. All I remember is returning that book back to the library, way before it was even due. I know that it involves faeries, and I may have picked it up before I really got into the whole paranormal/fantasy genre. However, I don't really know for sure, I could pick it up today and fall head over heels for it!


9) Fate by Amanda Hocking

This was the first series by Amanda Hocking that I read, and I really enjoyed it, however this installment was a bit of a low point for it. The MC was super whiny during this one, which is most likely the cause for my impression of it. I hate whiny characters!

See my review of Fate here!


10) The Awakening by Jayne Faith

I enjoyed the first book in this series, but the second one kind of disappointed me. It took me a while to get through, being that it dragged on. When things started to finally pick up and get interesting, the book abruptly ended mid-sentence! I was not happy!

You can see my review of The Awakening here!

What did you think of the list? Have you ever had a hard time getting through a book?

Top Ten Tuesday #1

Ten Hidden Gem New Adult Fiction Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful people at the broke and the bookish. This weeks topic involves books that are hidden gems in the genre of your choice. I chose to do New Adult fiction books.

At this point, just about any New Adult book is a hidden gem. Bookstores don't even have a New Adult section, which is a bummer since it's becoming one of my favorite genres! 

For this list, I've rounded up a few new adult books that I absolutely love! 

1) Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Not only is Flight an awesome paranormal romance, but you can often score it for free on Amazon! That is exactly how I first discovered this series that takes place in the big easy! The world created by Ivy is engaging and the characters are hilarious. 

Check out my review of Flight here!


2) Shadows of the Ancients by Christine M. Butler

This werewolf story is truly entertaining! The main characters best friend manages to make me laugh practically every time she opens her mouth! Be warned however, the second book in this series is even better than the first!

Check out my review of Shadows of the Ancients here!


3) Bloodfire by Helen Harper

I wouldn't classify this as being a werewolf story, but instead a shifter story. I love how this book introduces all kinds of different shifters, from your typical wolf to a honey badger. It would be super wild to see some of the scenes that involve all the different animals.

You can see my review of Bloodfire here


4) Hope(less) and Clay's Hope by Melissa Haag

Melissa Haag allows us to see a story unfold in both the female's and male's pov. Both books are great in their own way. If you get the chance, I would say to read both, because it's pretty great to see the story from someone else's perspective. Not to mention, we got to see what was going on in Clay's head!

You can check out my reviews of Hope(less) and Clay's Hope!


5) Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

McGuire's Beautiful Disaster is one of the novels that first introduced me to the wonderful world of new adult books! Full of romance, action, and suspense, this story kept me turning pages. I had to know what was going to happen next! Far warning however, this isn't rainbows and unicorns love, this is messy...super messy love.

See my review of Beautiful Disaster here!


6) Deep Blue by Jules Barnard

Deep Blue is similar to Beautiful Disaster, however, it isn't quite as messy. It too kept me on the edge of my seat! The characters are great...especially Jaeger! 

Check out the review of Deep Blue here!


7) My Own Mr. Darcy by Karey White

This nod to Pride and Prejudice is, dare I say, one of the most adorable books I have ever read! It is a super cute romance that is sure to make you grin from ear to ear! 

Find my review of My Own Mr. Darcy here!


8) Accepting Fate by Deanna Chase

Although Accepting Fate is technically the second book in the series, you can definitely pick it up without reading the first. I did just that, and didn't feel as though I had missed a beat! I absolutely loved the light fantasy element Chase wove into the story! This is soulmates as you have never seen them before!!

Look for my review of Accepting Fate here!

*Not quite ten books, but I'm still working my way through this new genre! Hopefully I'll find some more hidden gems 😊

Book Review: Crusade (Crusade Book 1) by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguié

Crusade Book 1
Title: Crusade
Author: Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguié
Series: Crusade #1
Pages: 470
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

The ultimate battle. The ultimate love.

For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain’s Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.

Forced to return home after death takes a member of her family, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. As a lone hunter apart from her team, Jenn is isolated—and at risk. She craves the company of her fighting partner, Antonio: his protection, his reassurance, his touch. But a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.

Then Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust herself—and her heart.

I came across Crusade in a bargain bin at my local bookstore. I loved the premise and knew that I had to have it! Like most books I end up purchasing, this one simply got added to my TBR, which is pretty extensive. While cleaning out my bookshelf, I came across it once again and decided to read it. I have to say, that my bargain book skills are pretty top notch, because I absolutely loved it!

There is much more to this book than the synopsis explains. First off, the short snippet only talks about Jenn and Antonio, so when I started reading I was pleasantly surprised to find that the book is not just about them and their romantic woes. Instead, we get to meet a whole team of hunters!

Each member of the Salamanca Hunters is extremely unique. I'm not kidding! They are truly a diverse set of characters! Spanish, Japanese, Danish, and Irish lingo would all be used on a single page! It seriously brought me back to my high school Spanish days. The hunters are all great...except Jamie. I really want to like him, but I don't know if I can forgive his attitude. He's going to have to be pretty awesome in the next book to win me over!

Being a fan of all things action, I was enamored with the amount in this book. There was suspense, betrayal, fighting, and even some shock factor! At times, I found it impossible to put the book down, I had to finish a scene...or a chapter...okay or maybe the whole book!

Overall, I really enjoyed the crazy world that Holder & Viguié created. I would say it's somewhere between True Blood and The Walking Dead, making it what I call an apocalyptic vampire action romance (sounds fancy, I know!).

"Do you know, Antonio's been going outside in the cold mornings, and then coming and putting his hands on your face, to bring your fever down. That's really awfully sweet, in a very strange way."

Book Review: Waiting for the Beast (Lucifer's Clock Book 1) by T. Hayden

Lucifer's Clock Book 1
Title: Waiting for the Beast
Author: T. Hayden
Series: Lucifer's Clock #1
Published: February 14, 2017
Pages: 267
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

What if the Bible has it all wrong about the Anti-Christ?

What if this person is female and what if she actually has a choice?

Meet A.C. a.k.a Angelica Cunningham

Angelica is drop dead gorgeous, lives in a sprawling mansion with her two aunts, attends a prestigious private school, is an A student and excels at everything she does effortlessly. She has a great life.

That's until her 16th birthday and it all goes banana's. One of her aunt's fall mysteriously ill on the brink of death. Angelica is suddenly telepathic, has a heightened sense of smell and is seeing supernatural beings, that only exists in fairy tales.

Angelica's family is forced to tell her the truth. Her aunts are actually supernatural beings that have been charged with protecting Angelica from her father, Lucifer. He has put a bounty on Angelica's head and every creature from the Abyssal Realm a.k.a Hell is looking for her. In addition she has a hot guardian angel that has been assigned to her since birth that she can now see.

She is suddenly thrust into a dangerous, magical world. Between dealing with her new identity, a love triangle, hiding from her father, and just trying to be a teenager she has to make a decision to run, fight or wait for the darkness to consume her.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

The way that Waiting for the Beast started was unlike any other book I had ever read. Instead of getting thrown into Angelica's story, I was slowly eased into it. Books don't typically do this. Instead of being left guessing, I was given the relevant information at the beginning. This allowed me to focus on where the book was going, and more importantly what was in store for Angelica's future. I wasn't constantly wondering what/who Angelica was, instead I already knew.

I did appreciate how I was eased into the story, but at the same time I found myself getting a little bored. I was ready to meet Angelica and get started on the action! Once the action did start, I found that I really enjoyed reading the book. The storyline and world that Hayden had weaved fascinated me!

I'm excited for the rest of the series, and am really hoping that the author takes some risks with Angelica's romantic affairs, just like she did with the concept of this book! I know Michael is the definition of perfect, but that has been done time and time again. I am much more intrigued by Roman. I have a feeling that there is much more to him than meets the eye. What can I say, I have a soft spot for the bad boys!

Book Review: Bloodrage (Blood Destiny Book 3) by Helen Harper

Blood Destiny Book 3
Title: Bloodrage
Author: Helen Harper
Series: Blood Destiny #3
Pages: 237
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

Mack begins her training at the mages' academy in the hope that, by complying, the stasis spell will be lifted from her old friend, Mrs. Alcoon. However, once there, she finds herself surrounded by unfriendly adults and petulant teenagers, the majority of whom seem determined to see her fail.

Feeling attacked on all fronts, Mack finds it harder and harder to keep a rein on her temper. Forced to attend anger management classes and deal with the predatory attentions of Corrigan, the Lord Alpha of the shapeshifter world, her emotions start to unravel. But when she comes across a familiar text within the walls of the mages' library, which might just provide the clues she needs to unlock the secrets of her background and her dragon blood, she realises that her problems are only just beginning...


Mack seems to have an incredible talent of getting into trouble literally everywhere she goes. Bloodrage is definitely no different. Due to the events in both Bloodfire and Bloodmagic, Mack finds herself to be the newest initiate at the mages' prestigious academy, much to both the students and the teachers dismay.

She knows that if she doesn't succeed in passing all of her lessons at the academy, that poor Mrs. Alcoon will never be released from stasis. She also knows that to actually succeed, she will need to keep that little temper of hers in check, which is way easier said than done. Despite her predicament, Mack does try her hardest and even makes some actual friends!

Just as with the previous books, Bloodrage is full of action and there is a little bit of Corrigan thrown in there too (wink, wink). The suspense is killing me! We all know that Corrigan keeps popping up in Mack's life for a reason, but of course, Mack is emotional, temperamental, and stubborn. However, those same qualities, the temper, emotions, and stubbornness is also why we love her.

Sigh, we will just have to wait, because i am one hundred percent sure that Corrigan and Mack will happen. Hopefully, the next book in line, Blood Politics will not disappoint. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

"His back was ramrod straight, exactly as if the metaphorical poker up his arse reached through his spine and into his skull. That probably accounted for the lack of brain cells, I figured sardonically."

"Wonders would never cease. It would appear that I may have made another, if perhaps rather taciturn, new friend."

"Good teachers don't seek to train their students to be as good as they are, they seek to make them better." 

Book Review: Deep Blue (Blue Series Book 1) by Jules Barnard

Blue Series Book 1
Title: Deep Blue
Author: Jules Barnard
Series: Blue #1
Pages: 320
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

When Cali Morgan kicks off her perfect post-college summer in Lake Tahoe, she has everything she ever wanted: acceptance into a top law program, a gorgeous boyfriend, and an incredible summer planned with her best friend.

Confident about her place in the world, Cali makes it her mission to be her friend’s wingwoman and help her meet guys. What Cali doesn’t count on is running into Jaeger Lang, one of her older brother’s high school friends, or the sparks that fly when she’s around him.

Jaeger has changed, and it’s not just the added height and muscle. There’s something about him that’s deep and a little scarred. In spite of the changes, Jaeger becomes a top pick for her friend—if Cali can keep her hands off him.

But when Cali’s boyfriend dumps her and her carefully laid plans begin to unravel, she finds herself questioning what it is she truly desires. In the midst of doubts about her future, one thing is very clear: she wants Jaeger for her own. The question is, has her friend already fallen for him? And will Jaeger’s past come back to haunt them both?

Cali thinks she has her entire future mapped out. She recently graduated college and has been accepted into a top law program. She believes everything is great, except her friend Gen. Gen has recently broken up with her boyfriend, so to help cheer her up, Cali gets them jobs at a casino in Lake Tahoe.

However, things do not go as planned, and Cali finds herself lost and totally confused. Everything she thought she wanted, may not be even remotely close to what she really needs. Luckily for her, she has some help along the way, including Gen, and Jaeger, who looks a lot different than he did in high school...

I absolutely loved Barnard's writing! She was able to weave a great story that included a shock or two (or three or four). And the scenery sounds AMAZING! Her descriptions make me want to grab my camera, head on over there, and just enjoy the view. Speaking of view, her descriptions weren't just about the scenery, quite a few adjectives were about a certain scarred someone with some pretty green eyes. Just Sayin'. Deep Blue is fun summer read that will definitely, without a doubt have you swooning. 
"If one wishes to elicit a reaction from the elusive species known as 'reservus quietgirlius,' one must poke."

"Mom discovered too late that sometimes a hardworking man is more successful than a brilliant one."

"You're not a loser. You're almost as smart as me, which makes you one of the smartest people on the planet."

"Is he crazy? No one has ever told me my doodles are good, not that I flash them around or anything. Gen likes them, but she also thinks vampire romances are literature and sings along to 'Islands in the Stream.' Her tastes are dubious. She's not a reliable source."

"What better time to try something new than when you have nothing to lose."

"...maybe that's art. Seeing beauty others miss and capturing it."
