Title: Overruled by Emma Chase (The Legal Briefs)
Genre: New Adult Romance
As a DC defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing – with his southern drawl, disarming smile and captivating green eyes – he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.
Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.
Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart and mother of his beloved ten-year old daughter. Jenny is getting married — to someone who isn’t him.
That’s definitely not part of the plan.
Sofia Santos is a city raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.
But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits” begs for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him – to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi – to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves.
Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.
What happens when you mix a one stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage and a gun-toting Nana?
The Bourbon flows, passions rise and even the best laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

Today I want to do a post on hate towards YA. Lately I have been seeing a lot of comments regarding Young Adult Literature and how it is an ‘awful’ demographic. Everybody is entitled to their opinions and their own reading preferences but there is a way to voice such opinions and attacking those online who do like YA books is not the way to go about it. It always makes me ponder the question why is there such a hate for YA books?
I myself have experienced numerous comments from people stating how I should be spending my time reading ‘proper literature’ and how as an English Graduate I should be reading classics all the time. Ah, Bronte, Austen, Fitzgerald. I have tried them all but now alongside their names will be the work of J.K Rowling, Suzanne Collins and more. An argument of mine which may be controversial but for me they are now pinned as classics especially in Young Adult Literature.

Schools out for Summer! At least here in the UK it is, although you wouldn’t think summer was here with the constant rain were having. But whilst I’m wrapping up warm, some of you might be grabbing your suitcases, sunglasses and enjoying the heat. You know one thing that would make it better? A book!
So for this post I am going to be recommending you 10 fantasy/dystopian book series to pick up this summer. For me summer was always the perfect time to get into Fantasy books because my brain would only be focused on Work rather than Work and University. So I could lose myself in a world and commit myself to a series with 6 books without feeling guilty or pressured.

Today I am coming at you with a discussion post on Keeping Track of our reading. We can track reading in a number of ways from writing it down in a notebook to using Goodreads. But does tracking our reading ever take away from our experience?

Hey Book Worms.
I haven’t posted in exactly 8 days, what have I been doing? You may ask.
Well I was getting ready, gearing myself up for the big event which happened earlier today. MY GRADUATION.
I officially now have a Upper Second Class Degree – a Bachelors of Arts in English.
Here is a photo of me in my cap and gown;
I got tons more photos but I didn’t want to bore you with them all! If you did want to see more then I have another of my dress and I will be posting more on my personal instagram account; Username; hannahsmithhhx.
I cannot believe I have officially graduated, and you know what makes me prouder? I didn’t have an anxiety attack, I didn’t have any physical symptoms. I didn’t even feel overly nervous. I felt happy, excited and proud.
So this is just a little update to say I GRADUATED!
I will be back to posting regular reviews and bookish post very soon!
Thank you all for staying with me on this journey.
So it’s been a while since I did my last Discussion post or post on Anxiety and I really needed to get some things off my chest. To do a rant and just get the feelings that have been plaguing me out there and to do an update for you all.
