I Overbooked Myself Last Month! October 2019 Monthly Wraps

I Overbooked Myself Last Month! October 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! It’s been a crazy October for me! I was moderating a panel at The Ripped Bodice, and I also ended up overbooking myself! See, there were so many good books that I wanted to read publishing around the same time and I could not help but request them. So, I was basically drowning in all the books and I had a hard time keeping up! This really made me rethink my requesting practices and I have now tried to hold-off in requesting books.ย Wish me luck! I have also […]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [ARC Review]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [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.   The Kingmakerย by Kennedy Ryan is one book that I did not expect. Wow, was I surprised! The Kingmaker is a spectacular second-chance romance where our hero and heroine had a chance meeting for a few hours during a protest. I was also not expecting this book to be very political – but it is and I love it so much! The Kingmaker checked all the boxes for me. I love second-chance romance […]

Halloween Romance Recommendations

Halloween Romance Recommendations

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   I think I’ve been saying this over and over again. But I can’t really read or watch horror. That said when Halloween comes, I always try to read romance books that have a scary or creepy feel to it. If you’re interested, you can read my favorite non-scary Halloween movies post and non-horror reads to read for Halloween.   Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy   Fated by Rebecca Zanetti Paranormal Romance   The City of Brass by […]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [ARC Review]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [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. This month is probably the month of bullies and dark romance reads for me. Seriously. I haven’t really read books like this and I am a little bit disturbed but fascinated because I just can’t stop reading them! Heartless Heroย is really a second-chance bully romance with touches of revenge. Theo is definitely one broken anti-hero that I ended up rooting for. Not only are his motivations for vengeance a little bit harsh and […]

Such an Emotional Duet! Girl in Luv/Boy in Luv by Jay Crownover & Rebecca Yarros [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 was so excited to jump into this short duet by Jay Crownover and Rebecca Yarros and wow, what an emotional rideย Girl in Luvย is! I’ve read Jay Crownover before but I’ve never read Rebecca Yarros, and it looks like I will be reading her backlist now! Girl in Luvย really hit me in the feels! I love Langley and Iker so much! While this book is a novella, I felt that Langley’s character growth […]

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! I finally survivedย the first romance panel that I moderated!ย Yes, there was a lot of fangirling involved! A few months ago, I was asked by these amazing authors: Mia Hopkins, Maida Malby, Tif Marcelo, and Sarah Smith to moderate their panel atย The Ripped Bodice.ย It was an honor to moderate this panel because all these ladies are Filipino-American authors writing about characters of color and representing the Filipino, and Filipino-American culture!   We had an amazing time talking about books, romance and Filipino & Filipino American representation in literature. I love that everyone […]
