Favorite Historical Romance Books Published Before 1995

Favorite Historical Romance Books Published Before 1995

Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl   It’s no secret that I started reading romance – historical romance, in particular – when I was about 11 years old. I first picked Harlequin Historicals and then discovered even more old school romances and I was hooked! Here are some of my favorites from when I was in high school!   Why I love this Ah, there are so many things to love with Dreaming of You. This is the first historical romance where both heroine and hero were non-aristocrats! Not only that, Sara saved […]

How I Take Bookstagram Photos Using My Mobile Phone

How I Take Bookstagram Photos Using My Mobile Phone

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Bookstagram is undoubtedly where a lot of romance readers (that I know, anyway) hang out and interact with one another. Heck, I’m more active there commenting-wise that in the book blogosphere. In fact, one of my popular posts is my post Bookstagram Props that don’t Break the Bank. This time, I will show you how I take Bookstagram photos using my mobile phone. Disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer (not even close) and I do not claim to take the most spectacular photos, but I do have a style that works and I […]

It’s Been a While. Currently Reading 2020 Weeks 5-6

It’s Been a While. Currently Reading 2020 Weeks 5-6

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   It’s been a while since I wrote a Currently Reading update! Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I would be continuing with this feature, but I also miss discussing my reading updates with you! I have been trying to tweak my nightly schedule so I have time to blog and interact on #Bookstagram. For now, it’s working and I love that I am posting more often. Pierre is out of town for work at the moment and this has also given me days of me time! The only problem I have is that the cats […]

Books On My TBR I HOPE Will Be 5-Star Reads

Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I’m picking three books on my highly anticipating shelf that I HOPE will be a 5-Star read! Hopefully, this post won’t jinx it! Unfortunately, I already read one book that was a disappointment! It really sucks because I had high hopes for that book (Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey). I also shared my highly anticipated reads for 2020 last year!     Why I Think it’s Going to be a 5-Star Read The Ravenels series is SPECTACULAR! Plus, it’s Cassandra and Severin’s […]

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Let’s talk about anything bookish! This is a different discussion post because it is a little bit personal. Well, not in a personal PERSONAL, if you know what I mean, but something that I want to share with everyone. I am an extremely emotional reader. And really, I tear up at minor things – usually meet-cutes! hahaha But seriously, though. Sometimes, I DO search out emotional reads purposely so I can ugly cry. I have no idea why I do that, but I just do! I am an extremely emotional reader and a mood reader to boot, so both are a crazy combo! In fact, Mr. He […]

Life Happens | January 2020 Monthly Wraps

Life Happens | January 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance   There is always that time where you just don’t want to do anything. Couple that with the flu and you have an epic stepback from the bookstagram and bookish community. January has just been a month. What with #RWAshitshow, my new job (that I’m loving, by the way), and just trying to get by every single day, it really has been one heck of a month. Anyway, I’ve fully regenerated and now starting to be more active on here and on bookstagram! Hit me up over there and say hi! I’ve not bee fully […]
