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.

The Sins for All Seasons series is about six illegitimate babies who […]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I don’t really know what made me pick-up wait for you by Jennifer L. Armentrout (writing as J. Lynn). To be honest, I received four of the books in this series a couple of years ago but since this wasn’t a genre that interested me, I didn’t bother reading it. Let’s just say that I am kicking myself because I didn’t read these books. I don’t even KNOW WHY I picked it up and whatever fairy impelled me to pick it up, THANK YOU SO MUCH […]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I normally don’t like Cinderella retellings (except for Cinder by Marissa Meyer) but An Offer from a Gentleman snuck into my heart early in the book. In fact, I was brought to tears! This is usually my measure for loving a book. I mean, if a book makes me cry, it is up there on my favorite list! Initially, I had reservations about it since we don’t really know a lot about Benedict Bridgerton other than him being the second son. We also don’t see much […]

Sexy, Sexy, Sexy! Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

Sexy, Sexy, Sexy! Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is the second book written by duo writing team Christina Lauren that I read, and I was a bit skeptical. Sure, it felt a little too NA and I was pretty annoyed at the first quarter of the book – the Vegas part because it was just too stupid! I mean, not stupid, STUPID but stupid because I know I would totally not do what these girls did. Also, because I am an introvert, I just CANNOT understand marrying a stranger like that. That said, […]

The Throne of Glass Coloring Book Review

The Throne of Glass Coloring Book Review

Take out your markers and coloring materials because the EPIC Throne of Glass coloring book is FREAKING amazing! I seriously LOVE it! Each page is amazingly illustrated by three different artists! I love that you have three styles of artwork in this coloring book. This is the very first page I finished using ALCOHOL MARKERS and I am proud of what I did! Also, the amazing line art on this page is just perfect. As someone who is not comfortable coloring humans, this was surprisingly easy! One of the things that I love about this coloring book is that they […]

Sophie Jordan’s Devil’s Rock series has been a delightful surprise for me. And I have been looking forward to Piper and Hale’s story since we met them in the previous book, Fury on Fire. Sophie Jordan did not disappoint. Beautiful Lawman was a stand-out read for me this year. And this is saying a lot because I don’t […]

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, well, well, well. Who would’ve thought that I would enjoy The Falconer so much? The fae, that’s who! *wink I believe this is the very first steampunk paranormal book that BLEW ME AWAY! Yes, it’s that AMAZING! Sure, I enjoyed The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare but that series does not come CLOSE to the amazingness that is The Falconer! The Falconer checked all the boxes for me. Awesome female character? Check! Anti-heroish mysterious character? Check! Spunky, comedic character? Check! Minimal romance? Check! Set in the […]
