Jock Row by Sara Ney [Excerpt]

Jock Row by Sara Ney [Excerpt]

Jesus Christ, she has a dimple in her damn cheek. I’m a sucker for those. She shoots me a tentative smile, ass parked on the stoop, back propped against the wooden siding of the house. It’s obvious that she’s blushing by the way she ducks her head, glancing down at the floor, the soft glow from the two busted lamps illuminate the crown of her head. The porch lights are busted and rusty, needing their bulbs changed, one flickering—the other just about to burn out. It makes the entire place look like a goddamn Halloween fun-house, casting a weird glow […]

A Lot of Things Happened this Month! April 2018 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy New month, Wormies! It’s been a crazy month for me and I’m not really complaining! See, last March, I was down with the flu but this month (April), was full of activities that kept me on my feet – figuratively and literally! Let me explain. First, April was the LA Times Festival of Books and I went for the weekend. I was on my feet the whole time! Of course, I took the train down to avoid the crazy parking situation, and I met a few authors! It was so much fun! […]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly [insert link], but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it […]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

I am not an avid comic book or graphic novel reader, so this book was interesting. I have watched quite a bit of Batman animated movies, so I think I know a little bit of Batman facts. I was expecting to be blown away by Batman: Nightwalker, but I wasn’t. It was surprising to me at least. We get to see a teen Bruce Wayne before he had control of his company. We also meet his friends, Diana (who is Filipina, by […]
