I tend to judge contemporary romances on whether it’d be a good romantic comedy movie, and how many butterfly feelings I get in my stomach. How much I laugh. How much I smile and swoooon. How much I root for the couple. Here are 12 (!) books that I think would make great Valentine’s Day Reads: […]

Contemporary Romance Challenge Last month I read four books for this challenge. Unfortunately, some of them were just disappointing and made me hate romance just a little. When I’m Back & When I’m Gone by Abbie Glines 2 stars. I think I may be done with this series and with Abbi Glines for a while. These books […]
I really love this guy’s voice. It reminds me Band of Horses, one of my favorite bands. I love the easy, classic melody of this song. And the repetitive lyrics make it easy to remember and sing along to. What do you guys think?
Historical Settings That I Love Ancient Rome: if I see a book is set in ancient Rome, I am all over it! Emperors, gladiators, soldiers, doesn’t matter to me! My favorite series to encapsulate ancient Rome is Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn. I’d love to see it used more in YA! I did loveCurses and Smoke […]
And thus, one of my favorite Contemporary Romance series comes to an end. *queue the tears* Connor and Jessica have always been a bit of a mystery, and in Anything For You we find out why! They’ve kept their on-and-off relationship a secret from everyone for YEARS. Jessica had a really rough childhood. She’s grown […]
I first heard this song late last year and didn’t think much of it at first listen, but the more I heard it the more I reeeeeally liked it. So if at first you’re not convinced, give it a few more listens. Trust me!
Since this week is a TTT freebie, I decided to make a list of all the series I’ve yet to finish (or move beyond the 1st book!) Here is my list: Forever Odd by Dean Koontz: This is the 2nd book in the Odd Thomas series. I loved the first one and plan on reading […]
I really stacked the shelves in 2015, so my goal for 2016 is to buy more ebooks and reserve the physical book purchases for those I KNOW I’ll read within the month. So far, I’m staying on track! I know we’re less than a month into the year, but I’m really proud of myself! Lol […]
I’ve been holding onto this mini review since I read the book in April 2014 and with the sequel coming out in May, it seems like the perfect time to share! I was so very impressed by The Nethergrim. It was darker and grimmer than I expected, but had that thread of hope in it […]
The Freshman is one of those songs from the 90s that you never forget. The lyrics point to a sad story of abortion and suicide. And according to the song’s wiki page it’s partly true, which I never knew. So for funsies, tell me what school grade or how old you were when this song […]
The last three weeks have brought A LOT of books into my life! Especially having gone to ALAMW in Boston last weekend. Since it’s so many books, I’ll just link my Goodreads shelves where they’ll be listed. :) Firstly, my TBTB Secret Santa this year was the wonderful Estelle of Rather Be Reading and she […]
