Must Have Bookish Apps

Must Have Bookish Apps

Let’s talk about anything bookish! For a few years now, I’ve slowly been moving to digital formats when reading (or listening) to books. I’ve also been listening to audiobooks more, however this year, there’s about an equal split between audio and ebooks. Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite bookish apps that bookworms need to have if you don’t have it already. For Library Readers Libby & Hoopla Apps If you love to read library books, get the Libby app (run by Overdrive) AND the Hoopla app. I wrote detailed descriptions for Libby and Hoopla, so you can go ahead and […]

I don’t want this series to end! All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst [ARC Review]

I don’t want this series to end! All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst [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’ve really enjoyed the Stay series by Jennifer Probst and All Roads Lead to You just hit me in the feels for multiple reasons! We’ve met Harper Bishop in the first book The Start of Something New and I’ve really been intrigued by her. She is the youngest sister in the Bishop family, and she is a veterinarian. And what I really love most about the Stay series are the animals! Hei Hei […]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

  I seriously had deja vu when I was reading Sins of a Wicked Duke! This is a Sophie Jordan backlist book and I swear I have read it before! Well, I think I read this years ago because I couldn’t exactly remember the plot, but while I was reading it, I felt that I read it before! I really love the premise – a spinster who is not of the aristocracy was fired from another job because she refused the advances of her employers’ son only to meet a rake who propositions her for the same thing! She doesn’t bite but […]

Extreme Bookish Burnout

Extreme Bookish Burnout

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Hello, Wormies! It’s me again and here we are, almost at the end of the 7th month this year and I finally admit that I am in extreme bookish burnout. I even blogged about what to do to get out of this funk but to no avail! I think this has been coming on in the last few months and I have been harping on and on about it. But this time, I have seriously felt it and I am feeling so overwhelmed! It’s not even blogging anymore, but it has seeped into bookstagram and […]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]

Oh, the banter! Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James [ARC Review + Giveaway]

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.   Well, well, well!

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

  I got The Opposite of You for free when it was on sale and I read it on a whim. WOW! I was delightfully surprised! The Opposite of You has a heroine who is starting her own food truck parked across a 5-star restaurant featuring a Michelin starred chef! So, YES there is food, LOTS OF FOOD! I live in Los Angeles and food trucks are very popular here and I have tried a bunch of them, so reading about them is the cherry on top! When I started reading The Opposite of You, I really didn’t know what to expect. But I just […]

This was an extremely exhausting month! June 2019 Monthly Wraps

This was an extremely exhausting month! June 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA Happy new month, Wormies! I am currently blogging in Vegas right now and man, did I need this short weekend getaway! Although, I have been really traveling a lot for work this month. In fact, I landed in Burbank on Friday and left Burbank again for Vegas on Saturday. Yeah, I’m such a jet setter right now. Note the sarcasm. A lot of things happened IRL to me in the month of June. While I won’t discuss the particulars, I just want to say that life is extremely unpredictable. I didn’t read […]

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.   Another Sky by Jayne Frost surprised me in a lot of ways.

You should definitely have tissues ready for this book! In Another Sky, both the hero and heroine are damaged – but both are also at a […]
