Weekly Sale Alert – August 31

Happy Labor Day, everyone! I’m unfortunately sick, but at least that gives me time to catch up on reading and reviewing. I was in dire need of a catch-up weekend like this,, and the Write On Review-a-Thon is offering great motivation for me! I purposely put more on my list that I would be able to get through, but I’m almost halfway finished, so getting through it may actually seem possible! There are lots of books on sale this week, and Beauty and the Mustache is now live, and I’m hosting a giveaway for a Penny Reid swag pack that […]

This title and cover really got me interested, the description even more so. I love reading about artsy, unique characters, and thought that’s what I would get. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.

Review + Giveaway: Follow by J.A. Huss

So when I saw the title for this book and series, I knew I had to read it. I work in social media. I put my Twitter handle on my graduation cap and livetweeted the commencement ceremony. I have to keep a portable phone charger in my purse because I post so much that my battery now lasts about 2 hours, even with the screen off. So yeah, I one-clicked this before I even read the description. Title: Follow Series: Social Media (#1) Author: J.A.

Labor Day Write On Review-a-Thon

Labor Day Write On Review-a-Thon

Big ups to The Book Vixen for organizing something fun that also makes me get up off my ass and be productive! In reality, I’m not getting up off my ass because the Write On Review-a-Thon requires reading and writing, both of which I do best sitting or laying down. But, productivity, yeah! Basically, I’m a bad, bad book blogger and should be punished. I only publish full blog reviews of a small fraction of what I read. Most books get a one-paragraph review on Goodreads and Amazon.

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?) […]

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.

So, what will Throwback Thursday be? Basically, it’s a short review of a book I […]
