An Update on Lacey’s Library

Hello everyone!! I just wanted to give an honest update about my life. I am absolutely swamped and haven’t had the time to get any books read. I am a college student, so I am currently taking five classes as well as a part-time job, and an internship! So I promise I really am busy!

Since I’m not getting a lot of reading done, I figured I would take Lacey’s Library and transform it into an everything blog. I will continue to read and write book reviews when available, but I’m going to write different things in hopes of maintaining this blog!

I’m going to make this a lifestyle/book review/everything review blog. I liked the name Lacey’s Library because I was writing book reviews. However, not everything in libraries are books anymore. There’s magazines, newspapers, computers, ebooks, tablets, etc. Therefore, I feel like the name would still be alright! Do you think I should change the name? Comment below!

Thanks everyone! Hope everyone has been doing well in 2018! I know I have so far!

One Year of Lacey’s Library

This past year has been absolutely fantastic when it comes to books. This time last year, I was getting ready to go on winter break for college when I thought, “hmm, I really need something to keep me occupied for the next month”. I had no idea that this little idea would progress into this beautiful blog that I’ve had for a year now. In this year, I’ve read over one- hundred books and have reviewed every single one of them on this blog.

  • You can read every book that I’ve read in 2017 here.

I also started an Instagram in July of 2017 and I love the people that I met through this journey. It’s been a blast doing giveaways, posting pictures of books, posting reviews, and seeing what other people thought about the same book. I love the comments that I get and I love learning from other “bookstagrammers” on how to take the perfect picture.

I have always been the type of person who starts something, but gets bored and stops doing whatever it is. I am so happy that I can say that I’ve been doing this for a year and I have absolutely no intention of stopping. I love doing this and sharing my thoughts on books.

I appreciate you, the followers, because you gave me hope that people actually would like my reviews. This is something that I could see myself doing in the future, maybe even as a career, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Thanks again everyone.

“/Frôg • hôg/ 1. A woman who only dates SEALs

The first time I did it, I labeled it novelty. The second, I was ovulating and extremely horny, the third time was because I’d had two martinis and he had fourteen abs. Fourteen. You don’t say no to that.

My name is Valen, and I’m addicted to SEALs. Bag them, tag them, on to the next. One ships out, the next ships in. It has become a hobby, a recreational sport, if you will. Their skills inside the bedroom are comparable to their notoriety on the battlefield. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with their trigger finger. I could be wrong, so don’t quote me on that.

From the moment I met the infamous SEAL they call, Hutch, my game begins faltering. He wants more than one night, and while I wouldn’t mind a double dip, falling for this lethally good-looking frog would be bad for my health. Counting abs turns into counting dates, and dates turn into something else entirely. Forever.”

Review:

If you like steamy romance novels, read this. Valen is a girl with a type. It’s known around town who she goes for. She sits at a specific bar that only deals with Navy Seals. This is where she meets Hutch. She is in for something that she never expected.

I enjoyed this book because I like romance with some steam. The characters are done really well and progress throughout the book. I didn’t like Valen in the beginning but she was a great girl by the end. Hutch was my favorite person in this book. He showed to not be who I expected him to be.

This book was a novella, so there wasn’t much for me to say about other than it was done well. I gave this book four out of five stars because it had a few grammatical errors, but other than that, it was well done.

Rating: ★★★★
