Review + Excerpt: The Player and the Pixie by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid

Hey everyone! Today I’m doing something I haven’t done in a long time: a blog tour. And since I’ve read the book by now as well, scroll down for that review. Excerpt: I DIDN’T KNOW what I was doing. Requests, things I wanted, words I would never speak or allow myself to think were now uncontainable. It’s the sex, I reiterated. Again. I’d used this explanation, now on repeat, as a simple justification for the complex cacophony of my mind. “Be with you?” Her long, dark lashes fluttered, beating like distressed butterfly wings against warming pink cheeks. I licked my […]

Hey everyone! Springtime is here, and I’m excited. My mom is actually coming to visit this weekend, but since she goes to bed at 9pm I assume I’ll have tons of time for quiet blogging and reviewing. 😛 I’ve been slacking on reading and posting lately, but I had a huge binge read the other weekend so now I have a bunch of stuff to review.

Review: Tell Me You Crave Me by Joya Ryan

Review: Tell Me You Crave Me by Joya Ryan

Review: I liked this plot and these characters and this book soooo much. I’m giving it 3 stars for a weird reason: I didn’t get to enjoy it enough. Shit was pretty rushed. If I normally did half-stars, it’d be 3.5 though. Joya created such a great universe here, but the book felt so fast-paced a lot of the time. I would have loved to have been able to really sit back and get sucked into it. But as easy as it would have been to get absorbed into the book, it felt rushed enough that instead, I was strugglin’ […]

Review: Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne

Review: Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne

Review: This book started off ‘meh’ for me but ended with a bang. I think it was just all the jumping around at the beginning to get us caught up to speed on Cam and Grace’s relationship since she moved back to town. (PS – it’s def more of a second-chance romance than it seems from the blurb, which I loved. You know I’m a sucker for those.) Once Cam and Grace started spending more time together and the stakes everywhere got a little higher, I got really sucked in. Stayed up til 5 am last night finishing it, actually. […]

7 Ways to Make Your ARC Pile Less Overwhelming

7 Ways to Make Your ARC Pile Less Overwhelming

The hardest and most frustrating lesson to learn as a book blogger is how many books you can realistically read. Here’s how my first few months of book blogging went: I didn’t have much going on outside of work, so I pretty much read from 7pm until the time I went to bed. I was reading a few books per week, but a lot were rereads since I couldn’t always afford to buy new books. But then, omg! I had my regular TBR pile. But then a few authors start asking me to review their books, and aaaah, they look good! […]

Review: Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren

Review: This was an intensely emotional read for me. Tears the whole time! Not sad tears or even happy tears all the time, just…intensity tears. Beautiful Bastard is one of my all-time favorite series. My reading tastes and preferences have changed a lot since I first read Beautiful Bastard in 2013. In fact, it’s just starting to occur to me that I don’t even read books by most of the authors who were my favorites back then. But Christina Lauren, and this series, are still at the top of my “love” list. And while I loved the first two books, […]
