That's Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger

Hey, guys! Today I am reviewing That's Not What Happened! I got an ARC from BookCon, but I waited a while to read it!

Synopsis (via Goodreads!): It's been three years since the Virgil County High School Massacre. Three years since my best friend, Sarah, was killed in a bathroom stall during the mass shooting. Everyone knows Sarah's story--that she died proclaiming her faith. 

But it's not true. 

I know because I was with her when she died. I didn't say anything then, and people got hurt because of it. Now Sarah's parents are publishing a book about her so this might be my last chance to set the record straight . . . but I'm not the only survivor with a story to tell about what did--and didn't--happen that day. 

Except Sarah's martyrdom is important to a lot of people, people who don't take kindly to what I'm trying to do. And the more I learn, the less certain I am about what's right. I don't know what will be worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up . . .


The storyline was great! I feel like the romance was perfect and I loved the representation! I made all my friends read it, right away! I found the anxiety reminded me of one of my irl friends. The mystery behind what actually happened was keeping me on the edge of my seat! I was a little uncomfortable when the story talked about one of the characters having an alcohol problem, but it was easily overlooked.

Overall, I would give this book 4/5 stars!

Welp! That is it! Have you read this book?

Love and Theater Cover Reveal

So my novel, Love and Theater. Here is the cover, synopsis, an aesthetic I made for the story, and another sneak peek to get you excited!
I did this with my friend Noel who is also doing a cover reveal. Go check her out...

Here is the synopsis:
Rose Adary is auditioning for the role of Anastasia in her school musical. When the nerve-wracking audition is over she accidentally trips and falls into the arms of Liam, the new handsome student at Banel Junior High School. Her well-organized lifestyle might as well have turned upside down when she discovers her mom is pregnant with twins and her little brother Al is in a car accident with his leg needing to be sawed off. Her feelings for Liam are just another problem.  
This story shows the family struggles that come from unfortunate accidents and the need to stay true to your family. 

The aesthetic: The Sneak Peek: “Rose Adary! Please come on to the stage,” called the drama teacher. Mrs. Wister has been my teacher since I came to Banel Juni…

#UnicornWriteAThon Announcement and Plans

#UnicornWriteAThon
So, I'm starting a WriteAThon... The name was my idea. For some reason, I've been on a unicorn high recently.
What is it: During the week period, you have to accomplish a word count goal you set for yourself.

When is it: May 13-19, 2018

Why: Because I need to finish the novel I started.

MY PLANS!!!!
I am planning to write a total of:
3,500 words!
And, I plan to outline A LOT! Right now I have about 5,000 words and I do want quite a short book sooooo................


Question: How are you liking the Twilight series so far? Answer: I am loving it. I actually just finished a day ago. I need another one though. I'm gonna find the author's P.O. box and send her a 4-page letter explaining why I NEED another book in that series. This has become one of my new favorite series.
What is your word count goal if you are doing the WriteAThon? And if you are doing it comment! My review for an Ember in the Ashes will be up VERY soon.
