Eight Books On My Fall TBR List

Eight Books On My Fall TBR List

Hello, FALL! As someone who has experienced fall only in the last 10 years, this is one of my favorite seasons! Not only is the weather perfect (well, Southern California perfect), but I find that this is the BEST time to read! I read in bed and snuggling in to read the day away is just perfect! Here are the books that are at the top of my dangerously high TBR pile. Historical Romance A Duke in Shining Armor (November 28, 2017) – This is like the Runaway Bride only in a historical setting!

The One Genre that I Gave Up On

The One Genre that I Gave Up On

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Last week, I shared my habit of hopping from one genre to another. Now, I wanted to share my thoughts on genres that I actually have given up on.

And I donโ€™t mean romantic mysteries. So, I used to read a lot of Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys growing up so the private eye mysteries were one of my favorites! […]
