Slowing Down for the Holidays | November 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Monday, Wormies! Happy Holidays! It’s officially December and we have 24 days left until Christmas! I say 24 because Filipinos celebrate on the 24th so we are up at midnight to greet the 25th! If you’ve been to the Philippines, you’ll obviously notice that Christmas is the best time to visit because of the celebrations! I hope to spend Christmas there again soon! I’ve also been slowing down with my reading because of the holidays! It’s usually one of the few months that I normally don’t read a lot (although […]

I’m Crafty Again! Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 43-44

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks Happy Sunday, Wormies! By the time you’re reading this, I am probably driving to Palm Springs for a work conference. Fun! Not really.

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [ARC Review]

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Gypsy King is my second Devney Perry book and it did not disappoint! Devney Perry has a way with writing that captivates you from page 1! Based on the book I read, I was really curious how she would write an MC romance because her writing style isnโ€™t that gritty as what you would expect an MC romance to feel like. I have to say that her style works well with how she […]
