Review: Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid

Review: One thing I really love about this book is that I feel weird calling it a romance. Is it about a romantic relationship? Yes. But is it about the romantic aspects of that relationship? Not usually. It’s about all the other stuff, the messy stuff that you don’t get in romances because it makes the fairytale less perfect. And I’m all for the fairy tale. I actually still prefer that over realistic any day. But it was a cool change of pace to add in now and then. This was about the passive aggressive arguing, the aggressive arguing, the sadness, […]

Review: Ninja at First Sight by Penny Reid

Review: So, this happened last week: @bberg1010 #NoRegrets — Penny Reid (@ReidRomance) November 17, 2015 And it was really bad, because it was days until I could actually finish because of work and shiz and stuff and more shiz. I had to avoid the Facebook fan group, not because of spoilers but because of reactions I’d be jealous of. But that was the cool thing about this novella, and my lack of overall memory: even though I read a portion of it a year ago, it felt like new. Last year’s version was a shorter story. And when someone with a bad […]

Review: Scenes from the City by Penny Reid

Review: I’m deducting a star because DAMN YOU PENNY REID, YOU SCENE-TEASE, YOU. I. want. more. And I’m blaming you for these frustration and deprivation feels. The real review starts now. Merry festivus for the rest of us! Penny celebrates festivus, pole and all (okay, I’m not sure about the pole, and this sounds dirty if you’re not a Seinfeld fan). Instead of airing her grievances this year, she wrote us some presents. Scenes from the City gives us a little tease of life after the HEA for each of the knitting group girl’s we’ve already read about. Each one is […]

#ThrowbackThursday Review: Love Hacked by Penny Reid

Welcome to #TBT week 3! This will also be the last Penny Reid week, sadly, because I already review Neanderthal Marries Human so I’m kind of out of books of hers to throw back to. Soooo, who wants to suggest what I should throw back to next? Send me a tweet at @bookbumblings! And now, I present to you, Love Hacked. Love, and hacking. What a great combination for a geek like me! My Original Goodreads Review: I equally want to be best friends with Penny and all of the characters she writes. I’m also seeing a weird trend where […]

#ThrowbackThursday Review: Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid

Welcome to the second edition of Throwback Thursday reviews! And whaddaya know, it’s also the second Throwback Thursday of reviewing a Penny Reid book! In case you missed it last week, Throwback Thursday reviews are short posts talking about a book I read a while ago. They’re different from my regular reviews because they’re less of a critical review/analysis and more just me talking about why I liked a book. Sure, I do that in regular reviews, but I also do the other stuff. And in case you also missed this last week, Beauty and the Mustache was released (You […]

Throwback Thursday Review: Friends Without Benefits by Penny Reid

So unless you’re a first-time visitor, you know I love Penny Reid. That’s right, I am a shark of awesome (and we’re jawesome). I’ve been waiting for weeks for this day: Beauty and the Mustache’s release! I’ve also been wanting to start a Throwback Thursday series for awhile. I can’t promise I’ll be able to do this every week, but I’ll try. Because isn’t Throwback Thursday awesome? How else will friends I’ve made later in life know how effing cute I was as a toddler? So, what will Throwback Thursday be? Basically, it’s a short review of a book I […]

Review: Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid

My Review: Squee! This is going to be an incoherent review. Very incoherent. Because ALL THE FEELS about Neanderthal Marries Human and anything Knitting in the City.. My name is Brittany, and I’m a Penny Reid groupie. I am a Shark of Awesome. I’ve also been having a BLAST rereading the first book, Neanderthal Seeks Human, in the Facebook read-along. This book went live on Amazon early, and I found out at work, and waiting until I got home to start it was TORTURE. So first, let’s talk order. This is book 1.5 in the Knitting in the City series, […]
