Hubby Reads Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hubby Reads Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hubby Reads is a feature where I ask my hubby to share his thoughts on the books that I made him read. Hubby and I have very different preferences when it comes to reading.  While I gravitate to the romance genre, he gravitates towards John Grisham, Robert Ludlum, Dean Koontz and the like.  However, there are times where I force make encourage him to read books of my choosing.  Well, he simply humors me and despite not liking the genre, he reads them anyway.  LOL I’m sure he draws the line to reading books from my favorite genre historical romance […]

Friday Faves #3: I Heart the Los Angeles Public Library

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. It was a happy HAPPY day for me when I found out that a Los Angeles Public Library branch is just two blocks away from my new place.  I was able to update my address, requested, and checked out a book that I will be using for work last Wednesday.  Okay, so I haven’t checked out a lot of “physical books” from the library in a while BUT I have been using the OVERDRIVE MEDIA App to borrow ebooks […]

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Historical Romance Books

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Historical Romance Books

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish Historical Romance is my favorite genre.  In fact, it is THE preferred genre when I want to get away from real life.  There is just something about the time that really captures my imagination.  Here are my top 10 favorites so far. Secret Ways by Kat Martin was the first book that I ever read that got me into Historical Romances.  Before that, I was reading a lot of Harlequin Historicals and although they were good, Secret Ways opened a whole new world for me. The Secrets of Mia Danvers was the first […]

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts “A tale of second chances” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is Laura Lee Guhrke’s second book in the An American Heiress in London series.  I thought a story focusing on the arranged marriage that was never consummated and the matchmaking failure Belinda (When the Marquess Met His Match, An American Heiress in London #1) made would be a delicious story.  However, I was disappointed…again despite Guhrke being a favorite author. I love the premise: arranged marriage, the husband comes back to claim his bride, and hero and heroine discover love.  But that was about it.  The […]

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book Review

Warning: This review may contain spoilers “Amazing. Unique.  I couldn’t put it down!” Let me just start with WOW!  Just. WOW!  I can’t help but gush about this book.  I had initially heard a lot of good things about it and I decided to give it a go.  Little did I know that I would immediately be sucked into a weird and different world.  These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner is the first book in the Starbound Trilogy. The story, set in the future where space travel is possible, focuses on the struggle and growth of two amazing characters: […]
