Currently Reading Week 21

Sharing my thoughts on this weeks’ reads Happy Thanksgiving, USA! I just want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who subscribed to my blog and also a special thank you for those who left comments on my posts! You have truly made blogging fun for me!

Romance Nicely Done! Forever With You by Beverley Kendall Spoiler Book Review

Romance Nicely Done! Forever With You by Beverley Kendall Spoiler Book Review

I received this book for free from the Author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   WOW! What a way to handle a romance that would normally raise eyebrows! Forever With You hit me in all the right places. That is, this book really, REALLY draws close to home so I may be a little bit biased here. Before I can review this book, I want to let you know that there WILL BE SPOILERS here. I feel that with the central plot, I won’t […]

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have a confession to make. I am a Bridgerton virgin and so when I decided to read The Duke and I, I was not prepared to binge read, in this case, binge listen, to the whole series! What do you mean a VIRGIN?

In fact, I had not read Julia Quinn until last year when I went to a book signing (a book […]
