Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 34-35: I’ve been reading a few meh books

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   We just finished the first week of this month and I have already DNF’d a couple of books and also lost interest in a few. Eeeep! I hope this is not a sign of what’s to come this month! I’m hanging in there, though! I plan to read more backlist books this month and I hope I won’t be disappointed! On the positive side, I just discovered an amazing Webtoon! It’s called Lore Olympus and it’s the BEST thing ever made! I am rooting for Persedes! It’s just too adorable! It’s not done yet, […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

I FINALLY read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez [Audiobook Review]

I FINALLY read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez [Audiobook Review]

I finally read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. Honestly, I have been hesitant to even read this book EVEN THOUGH I requested an ARC for it. I liked the premise and I thought I was brave enough to read it but the publication date had come and gone, and the hype for this book grew and grew, and still, I couldn’t start reading it. For those of you who are not familiar with me, I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and have been struggling for it for years. Pierre and I are also trying for a baby. I expected […]

Unfortunately, there are still a few that I need to have in my collection. I mostly have my favorite historical romance books on my shelf now, so I won’t […]
