Breaking the Ice (Juniper Falls #2) by Julie Cross
Publication Date: December 26, 2017 
Publisher: Entangled Teen
The second book in the Juniper Falls series from NY Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Cross, perfect for fans of Miranda Kenneally and Abbi Glines. Haley Stevenson seems like she’s got it all together: cheer captain, “Princess” of Juniper Falls, and voted Most Likely to Get Things Done. But below the surface, she’s struggling with a less-than-stellar GPA and still reeling from the loss of her first love. Repeating her Civics class during summer school is her chance to Get Things Done, not angst over boys. In fact, she’s sworn them off completely until college. Fletcher Scott is happy to keep a low profile around Juniper Falls. He’s always been the invisible guy, warming the bench on the hockey team and moonlighting at a job that would make his grandma blush. Suddenly, though, he’s finding he wants more: more time on the ice, and more time with his infuriatingly perfect summer-school study partner. But leave it to a girl who requires perfection to shake up a boy who’s ready to break all the rules.

All is fair in love and hockey…

Claire O’Connor is back in Juniper Falls, but that doesn’t mean she wants to be. One semester off, that’s what she promised herself. Just long enough to take care of her father and keep the family business—a hockey bar beside the ice rink—afloat. After that, she’s getting the hell out. Again.

Enter Tate Tanley. What happened between them the night before she left town resurfaces the second they lay eyes on each other. But the guy she remembers has been replaced by a total hottie. When Tate is unexpectedly called in to take over for the hockey team’s star goalie, suddenly he’s in the spotlight and on his way to becoming just another egotistical varsity hockey player. And Claire’s sworn off Juniper Falls hockey players for good.

It’s the absolute worst time to fall in love.

For Tate and Claire, hockey isn’t just a game. And they both might not survive a body check to the heart.

Well hello there...long time no see | Long Over-due Explanation + Question

*peeks around corner* Well hello there everyone! Remember me? No? Yes? Ah, okay so I've been MIA since October. I know, I know, bad Beckie! *scolds self* 

So this is going to be kind of a long post since there's a lot I have to say so please bear with me because it's important to me and hopefully is to my wonderful loyal readers. 

For the past few months, my life has changed immensely. First of all, I recently adopted a new kitten. His name is Toby and he's quite a handful. My life has had so much love and joy from being a mom to two wonderful cats. 

Here are a few pics of him and of both my kitties together. 

These two cuties have been keeping me busy. If you have ever owned a kitten then you understand. ;)  I've also been doing a lot of volunteer work for a local company that works with Christain artists. I work at the merch tables for many different singers and bands. To name a few, Newsong, Kari Jobe, For King and Country, and so many more. Its so much fun and I get to meet some awesome talent! 

Anyway, so I want to be honest with you all and tell you I've not really had the motivation to blog for the past few months. I haven't been reading much either. I kind of lost my mojo for my blog and I know a lot of this is because I have had other interests taking up my time but also I feel like no one really cares much for my content. When I put my heart and soul into my posts and reviews I would very rarely get comments. The only time anyone would comment was if they had to to enter a giveaway. I'm not singling anyone out and I'm not mad or anything but it's nice to hear a "great review" or "I enjoyed this post". These types of comments make a blogger feel that he or she is doing good and should keep putting out content. Does that make sense? Hopefully, no one takes this the wrong way. 

So with that out of the way I have a question for everyone.

Would anybody be interested or care if I reviewed or talked about video games on my blog as well occasionally? I have a real passion for video games and to be completely honest it’s been something that I’ve been doing a lot of lately. I’ve always been a big gamer but I don’t often share that side of myself with you guys on my blog because I figure it’s a book blog but would anybody be interested in me doing a few posts here in there about video games?

Give me a comment and let me know.

Overall my goal is to start working on cleaning up some stuff for my blog. There’s a lot of imaging problems because the photo bucket recently adding the payment for a third party hosting so I’m going to have to try to find another free image hosting site if anybody knows of one please let me know in the comments as well. I would also absolutely love to have a new blog layout but unfortunately, I’m not made of money so I might just have to stick with the one I have unless anyone knows someone that could do it cheap or would be nice enough to do it for me for free. Just send me a message or email me if you know of someone that would be willing to do that for me.

Ideally, I would love to start blogging again and really getting it back to where it was. I’ve missed blogging a lot last several months but I’ve just been so busy and preoccupied with other stuff. Once I get things clean up some here I'm really going to try and start blogging again. So be on the lookout for new posts coming soon. Thank you for reading this long post and I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever happy holidays that you celebrate. 

Would anyone be interested in reading video game reviews or content occasionally on my blog?

Oh yeah, I love video games!
Nah, but more book content would be great!
Doesn't matter
