Hey all! How’s your book review planning going? If it’s strugglin’ from the summer fun… 1. I’m with you, and 2. I’m here to help. Summer Write On Review-a-Thons are so perfect. If you’re anything like me, you’re spending more time outside and relaxing, hopefully at a pool or beach. That means lots of reading and not a lot of laptop/reviewing time. This summer, my time’s alternated between that kind of stuff and sick kind of stuff – doctors offices, bedrest, and hospitals. Aka even more reading time. Holy crap, I have so much I could potentially review – I finally caught […]

Review: One Week to Score by Kate Meader

Review: I’m not usually a fan of the Texas stereotypes, but Flynn? Him I will take. Please and thank you, Kate Meader. 🙋🏻 This book was amazing for me – formulaically and in every other way. Second chance romances – even if it was just attraction. Friends with benefits. Beaches and warm weathers and cute (sounding) vacation outfits. I’ll take that too. First of all, this goddamn family and their nuptial luck. It’s hilarious. I was starting to get annoyed at how unrealistic and dramatic it was, but then the characters joke about it themselves and get all deprecating. And another thing […]

Review: The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

Review: I don’t know why, but for some reason I thought this would be a cute, kinda innocent but still great read. I really don’t know why, considering I’ve read and loved a Meghan Quinn book before. Something about the cover, I guess? (Guuuuys, it’s so prettyyyy) That past experience is why I was willing to give an innocent-looking new adult book a chance in the first place. But I started reading to find the same naughty, raunchy, fucking hilaaarious humor as in The Virgin Romance Novelist. Nope, not innocent humor at all. Not innocent romance at all. Yassss. I […]

Review: Untamed by S.C. Stephens

Review: So I read this book right after it came out, but my feelings about it were so confused that I couldn’t have attempted to write a review. I just reread it and am feeling a little more…clarity? But also raaaage. But also good feelings, if only a few. So, here goes. Behind the Music! Haha. It’s Behind the Music! Every. Episode. Ever. With a focus on…you know it’s coming…the scary second half. I guess none of the gang had ever seen it, or they’d have been a leeetle better prepared haha. Especially knowing Griffin… It makes me think of […]

Hey everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your summer so far. And I don’t know about you, but for me, good weather = reading outside. I always read more in the summer than any other time of year, no matter how good reading with hot cocoa under a fuzzy blanket feels. So lots of books are getting moved from my “to read” list to my “to review” one. Great time for a review-a-thon! This Month’s Review-a-Thon The review-a-thon takes place on the last weekend of each month. Signups are posted about a week ahead of time, we’ll review our hearts out from Friday to […]

Review: Grin and Beard It by Penny Reid

Review: I started this book a little nervously, since while I like the Winston brothers series, they don’t hold a candle to the Knitting in the City series. It just goes back to needing to relate to books and not being too interested in small-town, low-tech mountain life. But Sienna made up for everything I “less than love” about the rest of the series. Girl is LIT. The chapters from her point of view – that shit I could read forever. It’s not just that she’s hilarious (which she is), it’s also my exact brand of humor. Five-year-old kid potty […]

Review: Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

Review: Eek, this book, these characters, were highly cute. We know I love workplace romances, and I don’t hate a good enemies to lovers story. Two tightly wound type A people working together can be hilarious (when it’s not actually happening to you). Between Morgan and her Olivia Pope wardrobe (HOW DO THESE WOMEN NEVER SPILL?) and Caleb’s micromanaging his brothers, they both really needed to get laid. Good thing they did. But they still fought a lot, which is always good. Hot romances always have non-serious fighting / bickering – Tangled, Beautiful Bastard, etc. The one thing I wasn’t totally […]

The Whenever Write-Up: BEA 2016 and Lots of the Things

The Whenever Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in my life, both on the blog and off. So it’s been a looot of weeks since I’ve written a weekly write-up. And even longer since I actually wrote them weekly. To make more sense, I now introduce the “whenever” write-up. 😛 (I actually just checked and it’s been 3 months, which isn’t quite as bad as I thought…) Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve It’s My Life Well, hello! Hi! Hey you! Yes, it’s been awhile. You know what they say about life getting […]
