We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

We Need More Diversity in Audiobooks

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I have been talking a bit about diversity in audiobooks – as in getting diverse narrators to read audiobooks, or at least make an effort to pronounce non-English words correctly. I’m a bit triggered about this because I have been on the other end of being ridiculed for not pronouncing English words correctly. News flash, I did not grow up in America. I immigrated here when I was 21. While my accent is not that thick, I still pronounce some words incorrectly and I […]

She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

Secret Desires of a Gentleman is one of my favorite historical romance books ever! In fact, I’ve reread this book multiple times over the years pre-Goodreads! The last time I reread this book as marked on GR was in 2016 – 4 years ago. Which is why I am writing this review now. I am taking off one star to my rating. I honestly don’t do this often, but I have been known to knock down stars after a reread. But I’d like to explain my 4-star rating and why I wish this book should have had an epilogue. As my […]

I Want Another Asian Vampire Romance! Don’t Hex and Drive by Juliette Cross [ARC Review]

I Want Another Asian Vampire Romance! Don’t Hex and Drive by Juliette Cross [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 am absolutely in love with the Stay a Spell series and Don’t Hex and Drive did not disappoint! Don’t Hex and Drive had all the steam, charm, and mystery as the previous book Wolf Gone Wild! This book is not a PNR rom-com, though, but I don’t mind! I love Devraj so much! First, I really love how Isadora and Devraj met! The book starts off with Isadora daydreaming and getting hit by Devraj while she was […]

Speechless. August 2020 Monthly Wraps

Speechless. August 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance   I really wish I have a lot of things to say but I’m last week was the most exhausting week of all. I just wanted to run and hide and forget this current world we have right now doesn’t exist. Many things happened. Actually, it feels like a million things are happening. We had to say goodbye to our cat, Twylah a couple of weeks ago, and is truly heartbreaking. We knew her time was short. And to be honest, we had been holding on to her for a while now. But it […]

Dragons & Phoenixes, Oh My! The Blood King by Abigail Owen [ARC Review]

Dragons & Phoenixes, Oh My! The Blood King by Abigail Owen [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.   Book two in the Inferno Rising series knocked it out of the park and did not disappoint! Heck, I even like it better than The Rogue King, which I gave 4.5 hearts! In The Blood King, we are introduced to the eldest Amon sister, Skylar, who is hell-bent on rescuing her sister, Kasia, from the clutches of the Dragon King, who is now her mate. Unfortunately for her, she attracts the notice of the Blood King, […]
