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 […]

I’m Binge Reading! Currently Reading Weeks 40-42

Bookish updates in the last 3 weeks It’s been 3 weeks since my last post and I hope you Wormies are doing great!

I have to say that my work has really helped me gain confidence in public speaking! And just to let you know, I also spoke at a work conference last week. […]

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 Hero 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]

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 ride Girl in Luv 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 Luv 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 survived the first romance panel that I moderated! 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 at The Ripped Bodice. 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 […]

Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

Favorite Romance Title Buzz Words

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Indigenous People Day everyone! Here in California, we have renamed this holiday, so it may be different where you’re at. We also have a three-day weekend so it’s my day off today! YAY! I decided to write another post about romance titles because I absolutely judge my romance books based on their titles! Well, not all the time, but I do look at the title first, then the cover, then the blurb before I decide if I want to read it or not. So, here are my favorite romance title buzz words!   Punny Titles […]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Penny Reid’s books have been highly recommended to me from romance readers that I trust. Unfortunately, this may be one of those authors that I just can’t get into. I don’t know what to think of this book? Maybe Penny Reid’s writing is just not for me. I mean, it’s written well, but I don’t exactly love the romance in Truth or Beard. And as much as I love punny titles, this could not make up my underwhelming reaction to this book. This may be an unpopular opinion to all the fans of this series. This is my fourth Penny Reid book and […]

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

What Makes a Book a Keeper?

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   If you are like me who reads a lot of books, you have read a lot of books. For the most part, I have most of the books that I love digitally – ebooks on my Kindle and audiobooks on my cloud. But I do love to collect physical books. However, I always struggle with what books I keep and what books I don’t need physical copies of. It also doesn’t help that I get a lot of free ARCs or finished copies from publishers. This means that I have a lot of books […]
