Books I Love Published Over Ten Years Ago

Books I Love Published Over Ten Years Ago

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m really excited to share the books I love that were published over ten years ago. I really picked the titles to showcase the variety of books I read and tried not to pick the same author twice. I have been reading since I was little so there were a lot of books to choose from. Anyway, here goes!   first published November 25, 1864 I read this book when I was still in elementary school and it was an illustrated version. I fell in love […]

Why It Sucks Being a Mood Reader

Why It Sucks Being a Mood Reader

Let’s talk about anything bookish! If you have been following my blog, you will know that I am a mood reader. What this means is that I pick a book based on my moods or what I’m currently feeling. This also means that I am unable to follow any sort of TBR or any sort of themed challenge where I pick the books that I will be reading for a specified period. I joined the ARC August challenge last month and it was clearly obvious based on my challenge results that I ultimately failed the challenge. See, I lined up books that […]

Their Explosive Relationship Heated Up the Pages! Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey Review + Giveaway

Their Explosive Relationship Heated Up the Pages! Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey Review + Giveaway

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. Who would have thought that I would enjoy reading a contemporary romance? Well, I just stuck my proverbial foot in my mouth because I LOVED Disorderly Conduct! Please DO NOT judge this book by its extremely cheesy cover because this book is really worth reading! Picture this, a police recruit who meets a girl at a bar and she propositions him into a relationship of convenience. Basically a booty call. Our […]

Ten Books I Struggled to Get Into But Ended Up Loving

Ten Books I Struggled to Get Into But Ended Up Loving

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish I am a mood reader and as such, I usually don’t have the patience to continue reading a book if the first few (usually two) chapters don’t hook me. Most of the time, this really helps me pick up a new book to read and not dwell on a plot that does not capture me. But this also opens a can of worms. What if the book is actually good? I have been proven time and time again that sometimes, books that I initially DNF’d or put on hold (I have […]

To All the ARCs I Haven’t Read Before Update

ARC August hosted by Octavia and Shelly @ Read.Sleep.Repeat   Well, well, well. I guess history repeated itself! I fully admit that I suck at themed reading challenges because I am a mood reader. The moment I put out a list of books that I WANT to read, I almost always DO NOT read them. I did read a number of ARCs, though so all is not lost. Beautiful Lawman by Sophie Jordan – The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare –  The Broken Duke by Jess Michaels – Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen – Perfect Sense by Amanda Cowen –  Disorderly […]

Currently Reading Week 15

Currently Reading Week 15

Sharing my thoughts on this weeks’ reads Happy Sunday, Wormies! I think I’m starting to get my mojo back and yes, I have been reading quite a bit! Plus, it’s the long weekend and I don’t really have plans other than stay inside where it’s cool! Also, there is a crazy brush fire that has burned over 8,000 acres here in the La Tuna Canyon area (about 15 miles away from where I am) so it’s not really safe to go outside because of the smoke. To anyone close to the area, please be safe. The recent disasters also got me thinking […]

Where the H Have I Been?! August 2017 Monthly Wraps

Last month’s deets on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy new month, everyone! I have been MIA in the last month both here on my blog and on YouTube (which is so bad since I only have 2 videos uploaded). So, I have not been in the blogging, editing, or reading mood, until the last few days this month. I guess there this is one of those months that I just wanted to be a hermit and not interact with anybody on the net. And of course, stuff that I do not want to discuss online. But you get […]
