Review: Beautiful by Christina Lauren

Review: Gahhhh. Just. Gahhh. I really, really, really with I had a more articulate initial reaction to hands-down my favorite romance series of all-time, but let’s be real. I’m me. Articulate reactions are not my thing. And one of my favorite things about this series – my favorite series of all time – is, as I’ve said before, that Christina & Lauren don’t just make you fall in love with each of their couples. They let you stay in love with them too. How many series do you read where a couple gets their HEA, and then even in their […]

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, […]

Review: Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Review: I’m really excited because the best way to describe how I feel about this book in relation to the rest of the Wild Seasons series works best as a Beyonce metaphor. I’m a card-carrying member of the #BeyHive. And when it comes to the Queen’s music, I’m all about the dance hits – Get Me Bodied, 7/11, etc. – that I can dance around and do booty pops and hair flips to. They’re fun and light, and that’s why I love them. But then I also love songs like Listen and Blue for the exact opposite reason. They’re heavy and […]

Q&A: Getting to Know The Ripped Bodice

Hey everyone! I’m SO excited about what I have for you today. If you’ve been on social media lately, you’ve probably seen a post or two about The Ripped Bodice. If you haven’t, here’s the lowdown. The Ripped Bodice is aiming to become the first bookstore in the US to exclusively sell romance. Yes, that’s right. All romance. A whole store! Amazing, right? I would not mind getting locked in there (one of my biggest irrational fears is getting locked in a store all night, because of a cartoon I saw when I was 5). Right now, they’re running a […]

Review: Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Review: As much as I loved the rest of the series so far, Dark Wild Night is definitely my favorite so far. I find it kind of funny that: Book #3 was my favorite (so far, at least) for both Wild Seasons and the Beautiful series. Book #3 of each series featured “nerd love” couples. Book #3 of each series featured girls I could relate to. (Although I still find it creepy how much I have in common with Hanna!) And even before I made those connections, one of the reasons I loved this book more than the others was that the love […]

Review: Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren

My Review: Hold on tight, girls. This review’s gonna be a long one (for me). Praise Jesus, praise Moses, praise every deity ever for the Stella family. I mean, for real. I’m going to peer pressure Christina and Lauren into writing books for all of the siblings. Through the power of my mind, obviously, since I don’t know them (yet…). I also loved how full-circle Beautiful Secret brought the Beautiful Bastard series. Another irresistible intern and fussy boss. But one of the things I love about Christina Lauren is that they can take a premise that’s been done before and […]

Review: Beautiful Beloved by Christina Lauren

My Review: Squeeeee! Let me tell you a story: on Friday, I worked all day. Literally all day. From about 7:45 am to about 7 pm, working straight through my lunch break. And then there was a car accident on the way home from work and it took over an hour. I was either at work or in the car to/from work for over twelve hours. I was miserable. I couldn’t wait to just crawl into bed. I’m climbing up the stairs to my apartment and see a package. I get slightly excited because I figure it’s the paper-sized post-its […]

10 Books That Have Made a Difference In My Life

So I got tagged in one of those memes a few weeks ago on Facebook. the kind I usually ignore: Post this, this, and this, and tag some other people to do the same. But I was tagged by one of my book buddies, and we all know I like to talk (read: bumble) about books. And when I started thinking about this, it would be a pretty diverse list. I mostly read romance nowadays, but I still read some deep shit (and doesn’t calling it shit when it’s really amazing just make me sound like such a deep person?) […]

Ready for More Beautiful?

Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings are two of my favorite people in the world. Sure, I’ve never met them, but I’m 150% sure I’d get along with them better than I do with most of the people I interact with on a daily basis. I mean, they write great books, obviously. But also, they’re fellow #AdultDirectioners, so I know they’d love the 1D lyric graphic I couldn’t resist making for this post. And lastly, they just get me, somehow. I’m not an easy person to understand. Like, at all. And they made my day today. How, you ask? New. Books. Yo.

OMG! Sweet Filthy Boy Bonus Scene

Once this blog is more substantial and I have more posts on here, one thing will become abundantly clear: Christina Lauren books are my everything. They are my favorites. I want to be their BFF. If you’re judging me, I’m assuming it’s just because you haven’t read any of their books. The Beautiful Bastard series is one I recommend to every person I meet that has ever enjoyed a romance book. (Sidebar: my sister calls me a media pusher…always telling people what to read, watch listen to, etc. She says it’s usually annoying.) I don’t take offense if I recommend a […]
