The Sins for All Seasons series is about six illegitimate babies who […]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I normally don’t like Cinderella retellings (except for Cinder by Marissa Meyer) but An Offer from a Gentleman snuck into my heart early in the book. In fact, I was brought to tears! This is usually my measure for loving a book. I mean, if a book makes me cry, it is up there on my favorite list! Initially, I had reservations about it since we don’t really know a lot about Benedict Bridgerton other than him being the second son. We also don’t see much […]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss 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. Well, it took me a number of months to get into this book. To say that I was disappointed is such an understatement – this book was MEDIOCRE, to say the least!

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have a confession to make. I am a Bridgerton virgin and so when I decided to read The Duke and I, I was not prepared to binge read, in this case, binge listen, to the whole series! What do you mean a VIRGIN? Well, as much as I am a fan of historical romance, I haven’t read this Julia Quinn series! I know, THE HORROR! In fact, I had not read Julia Quinn until last year when I went to a book signing (a book […]

Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review

Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I hard a time getting into this book. Unfortunately, I haven’t been following the Maiden Lane series and with this being the 12th book in the series, I felt a little bit lost. I have only read a few books in this series and the one I recently read was Darling Beast, the 7th book in the series and it was amazing! That said, I still enjoyed Duke of Desire. I think it […]
