Wrap Up: June Write On Review-a-Thon

Bzzz, bzzz, bzzz! That’s a buzzer, by the way. Because this month’s Write On Review-a-Thon is now over! How’s your to-do list looking? To share your progress with us, add yourself to the linkup below with a link to your list & progress for this month’s challenge. Check out my own progress here. I got all of my reviews more or less drafted (some have sections of bullets I need to make complete sentences and stuff like that), but in my Trello editorial calendar. I ended up grabbing the LIRR to the beach Saturday with some friends and meeting the same […]

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 […]

Review: Sour Grapes by Rachel Goodman

Review: I liked Ryan. I liked the little small town (I always do!). I liked the wine stuff. I liked the group of friends. I liked a lot of the plot. But I did not like Margaret. Not one bit. It always sucks when you don’t like the character who’s telling the story. You’re seeing things through their eyes, so it’s hard to keep the rest of the book detached from them. And boy, did I hate seeing things through Margaret’s eyes. For most of the book, she hated everything. And if she didn’t have something readily available to hate, she actively […]

Review: Anatomy of a Player by Cindi Madsen

Review: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! It was How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! In a good way – the best way. Except there was no drunken “You’re So Vain.” A disappointment, but I can overlook it because reading drunk karaoke isn’t as fun as listening to and watching it anyway, not by a long shot. Plus, Matthew McConaughey never held much appeal for me, and Hudson does. The book was so cute, and I absolutely loved the “reporter girl” banter between Hudson and Whitney. And man, Whitney kind of sucked as a reporter. It […]
