Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I had this post drafted (but not finished) for a few weeks now but I read Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s post on Book Box Subscriptions so I decided to hold off and change my post a bit. I used to subscribe to a few bookish subscription boxes a few years ago. However, I really think that they aren’t worth it, to me anyway. While I would love to continue subscribing to these boxes, I just don’t think it is practical for me to do so. And here’s why.   The Books I am […]

I wanted more girl power! Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan [Reread Review]

I wanted more girl power! Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan [Reread Review]

Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan is a reread for me. And what an emotional reread it was! It has been years since I read this book and I remember why I loved it so much! In fact, I went out of my way to buy a copy on Amazon because my own copy is back in my hometown gathering dust! Mistress of the Seas was the perfect book to read to get out of the current reading slump I was in. This book is about a female pirate and a Scottish prisoner of war who got sold into […]

Currently Reading Weeks 42-44: Stay Safe, Everyone!

Currently Reading Weeks 42-44: Stay Safe, Everyone!

Bookish updates in the last 3 weeks   Happy Sunday, everyone! As you know, I live in SoCal and there is a scary wildfire going on close to my neighborhood! My city hasn’t been evacuated, but the next city close to the fires has been. Praying for everyone affected to be safe! Because I’ve met my reading goal, I have decided to stop requesting ARCs for now (and I hope I will not be tempted!). I will try my best to read all the ones that I have right now and stop mood reading. I will keep this update short, […]

One Kick-ass Heroine! Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven [Audiobook Review]

One Kick-ass Heroine! Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It’s been a while since I read fantasy romance and I was a little apprehensive going in to Phoenix Unbound and I was blown away! Phoenix Unbound is an awesome, thrilling and romantic fantasy and I can’t get enough of it! Phoenix Unbound is set in a fantasy world very similar to Rome where there are gladiator fights and female sacrifices with an evil empire taking over the world. Our heroine is Gilene, an ordinary woman with extraordinary fire powers. She is also able to […]

Funny & Snarky! He Kissed Me First by Sara Ney [Audiobook Review]

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. He Kissed Me First is my very first Sara Ney and this definitely won’t be my last. He Kissed Me First is funny and snarky and OMG the banter was epic! It’s no secret that I love the best friend’s brother trope and He Kissed Me First has this trope and the enemies-to-lovers romance! So, here we have […]
