Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Indigenous People Day everyone! Here in California, we have renamed this holiday, so it may be different where you’re at. We also have a three-day weekend so it’s my day off today! YAY! I decided to write another post about romance titles because I absolutely judge my romance books based on their titles! Well, not all the time, but I do look at the title first, then the cover, then the blurb before I decide if I want to read it or not. So, here are my favorite romance title buzz words!   Punny Titles […]

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you are like me who reads a lot of books, you have read a lot of books. For the most part, I have most of the books that I love digitally – ebooks on my Kindle and audiobooks on my cloud. But I do love to collect physical books. However, I always struggle with what books I keep and what books I don’t need physical copies of. It also doesn’t help that I get a lot of free ARCs or finished copies from publishers. This means that I have a lot of books […]

Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 38-39: I Finally Got Mr. He Hearts Romance His Birthday Cake

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   I hope you’re having an awesome Sunday, Wormies! I’m currently chilling at home and watching a bunch of shows with Pierre. So, it was his birthday last week and I might have forgotten to get him cake! Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t forget that it was his birthday but I forgot to get him cake! 😳 I know, I suck but that’s the truth! I usually get cake at a couple of bakeries that we like close to work, but I wasn’t at work the last two days last week. See, last Thursday, I […]

Changes | September 2019 Monthly Wraps

Changes | September 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Hello, fellow Wormies! Did you notice something different with my blog? YES! I finally caved and modified it a bit! I just had this convo between Malia @ Romance Shmomance and I told her that I am a creature of habit. So. While my blog has been modified, it still has the same look, with only slight changes! More on this will be on another blog post. I have updated my blog header and basically renamed my blog, or used my original name I Heart Romance. While I will still continue to review Young […]

Books On My Fall 2019 TBR

Books On My Fall 2019 TBR

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   It’s that time of the season where I share my fall TBR. Well, at least books that are on my radar. There is still no guarantee that I will be reading all 15 books this year! As you know, I suck at lists but I also wanted to share books that I am eyeing and planning to read soon! If you follow me on Bookstagram, I’m also sharing Halloween recs and books I want to read in anticipated of Halloween! I’m 100% a scaredy-cat, so all the books I am sharing just have a […]

Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 36-37: I’m Super Late for this post, but that’s okay!

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   How has the week been treating you? I’ve been a bit busy with the #nameathon challenge hosted by Under the Covers Book Blog and Ideally Inspired Reviews and while I enjoyed the week, I basically only finished one book for this challenge! I even picked really easy reads (well, one is a longer book) and I still couldn’t catch up! This year is really not the year of reading for me. I haven’t been stressing out this week and I actually baked a cake! I made choco flan and it turned out amazing and delish […]

My Ten Most Read Authors

My Ten Most Read Authors

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I’ve thought about the authors that I read the most books from and I was quite surprised at the outcome! I kinda had an idea of who the authors were because I did this post a few years ago. I was pleasantly surprised when I tallied and came up with this list since some of the authors have remained and I have added new authors on this list. Obviously all of the authors mentioned on this list are romance authors. However, they write in different genres, except for a few that write multiple romance […]

Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 34-35: I’ve been reading a few meh books

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   We just finished the first week of this month and I have already DNF’d a couple of books and also lost interest in a few. Eeeep! I hope this is not a sign of what’s to come this month! I’m hanging in there, though! I plan to read more backlist books this month and I hope I won’t be disappointed! On the positive side, I just discovered an amazing Webtoon! It’s called Lore Olympus and it’s the BEST thing ever made! I am rooting for Persedes! It’s just too adorable! It’s not done yet, […]

Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside My Comfort Zone

Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside My Comfort Zone

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   I’ve made it past the long weekend! Yes, Labor Day here in the US was yesterday and it was my adulting day. Booo! I actually took a couple of days off last week because of my heart issues and my trip to the ER so I am up and running and ready to go to work tomorrow! This year is another year of firsts. I am a creature of habit and because of that, I don’t tend to read outside this […]
