A Series of Unfortunate Events! July 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Good morning, Wormies! It’s another month and we are closer to the end of the year! I just feel like it’s been 20 thousand years since 2020 started! Gahh I need this year to be over now. If you are in the US, the Presidential Election is in November so please register to vote. I’m in California and we have mail-in voting. This will also be my first Presidential election since I became a US Citizen and Pierre and I are definitely voting. Also, don’t forget to complete the 2020 Census! […]

This Book Kept Me Guessing! Twisted Circles by Claire Contreras [ARC Review]

This Book Kept Me Guessing! Twisted Circles by Claire Contreras [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. I don’t know where to start this review! I was just blown away by Twisted Circles! This book is so fresh and had me guessing until the end! By the way, did you know that Twisted Circles is an amnesia trope? Yep! Eva can’t remember what happened to her before she woke up on Sunday. She can’t remember what happened to her during the weekend, which starts the mystery in this book. I really love how […]

What an Amazing Read! Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins [Audiobook Review]

What an Amazing Read! Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins [Audiobook Review]

Forbidden is my very first Beverly Jenkins novel and it won’t be my last! I have not been reading a lot of historical romance novels in the last couple of years so I am hoping this will restart my love for historicals! I did not know what to expect when I started reading Forbidden. I literally went to this book blind and I love discovering all the surprises. What really stood out to me is Eddy! She is an amazing heroine and basically a Boss! She did everything she could to achieve her dreams and also did not compromise her dreams for […]

Hopefully, everything will be okay. On a good […]

Steamy and Scandalous! The Forbidden Man by Karina Halle [ALC Review]

Steamy and Scandalous! The Forbidden Man by Karina Halle [ALC 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. The Forbidden Man is the very first Karina Halle book that I read and it won’t be my last. In fact, I binged 2 more books by her! I was really surprised by The Forbidden Man because this book actually uses real sports teams! I don’t think I’ve read any book that used IRL sports teams. If you don’t know, I am not sporty but Pierre is a soccer (football) fan and so I DO […]

The Happy Ever After Playlist starts a couple of years after Sloan’s fiancé passed away (this was a plot point in The Friend Zone) and we really get a […]
