Review: Buns by Alice Clayton

Review: Oh Alice, you’ve done it again. I love you so much. 😍 Damn, Archie at the beginning of the book is like the male version of the wound up librarian stereotype. All buttoned up and rigid and in need of a good slomo-style shaking your hair out. And his family is like the Kellermans in Dirty Dancing? He can role play as your Johnny Castle? Sign. Me. Up. Screw Clara. He’s mine, along with that swan life in the final dance. Jk, Clara’s pretty cool. More than pretty cool. My favorite thing about books by my faves like Alice and Christina […]

Review: Below Deck by Tara Sivec

Review: Ah, it’s been way too long since I’ve read a Tara Sivec! As you know, she’s one of my favorite LOL authors (yes, that’s an official genre name in Bumblingsland), and with all the chronic illness shit in my life over the past year and a half, I’m now realizing I should probably be rereading at least one of her books per month! 😍 And the Signature Sivec was very much present in this book, thank the laughing lords! A sense of humor that’s one of a kind (despite other authors’ best efforts to copy 😉) A super amusing “ensemble cast” instead […]

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: Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci

Review: Hot damn, this book checked all my boxes! Authors I love? ✔️ Beautiful scenery? ✔️ The sense of humor I’d find at brunch with my own girlfriends? ✔️ Second chance romance? ✔️ A strong, badass female? ✔️ Dude who’s as hot in looks as he is in personality? ✔️ So let’s get started on the deets! I added this book to my TBR the second I heard of it and just knewww it would be amazing. Between the authors and the name, it was enough to make up my mind. 🙂 It was pretty Eat, Pray, Love-ish in concept (I think, it’s been awhile since […]

Review: Well Hung by Lauren Blakely

My Review: First of all, since I haven’t posted my review of Mister O, I haven’t talked about this series since it became a…series lol. Can we PUHLEAAAASE talk about these book titles? So. fucking. amazing. Back when there was just Big Rock, I chuckled. I called it Big Cock in my head (because remember that book cover? You could just tell…) because I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy. But I never imagined I’d get even more dirty, funny, punny book titles to play with! Wheeee! Moving on. Oh, Hammer, you poor sucker. You […]

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: 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: 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 + 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 […]
