A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It took me a while to get into A Princess in Theory. In fact, I received an ARC last year and I had put it on-hold since then! When I finally caved and bought the audiobook and listened to it, I was delighted but also a little bit distracted. See, I saw Black Panther this year and the accent the narrator, Karen Chilton, used for Thabiso reminded me of the Wakanda accent and I kept picturing Chadwick Boseman in the Black Panther suit. Also, […]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t know what to expect when I read The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen. To say that I was surprised is putting it mildly. The Year We Fell Down is everything I want in a romance and more. I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did. The Year We Fell Down is really a book of courage, how to overcome the things real life has handed to you. I love Corey and Adam. But really, what made this […]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot damn, the Crossing the Line series was awesome overall! I actually binge-listened this series (not in order, mind you) and it was good. Overall, I gave this series 4/5 hearts, but each individual book has a rating range of 3-4 hearts. The Crossing the Line series has a 60-40 balance between suspense and romance, where romance gets the largest chunk of each of the books. This is exactly what I love! I do wish there was more action in the books, though. Also, I love the all the female heroes are unique in their own way, kick-ass and have baggage! It’s refreshing […]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Romeo & Juliet, X-Men & Revenge | Renegades by Marissa Meyer Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Renegades is a book that I have been putting off for a while. I have been very hesitant in diving in because of the lackluster early reviews. It’s unfortunate, really because Marissa Meyer is one of my favorite YA authors. I finally listened to the audiobook this month and I liked it? So, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this book. Let’s just say that it is a very sloooooow book. I mean, the world building is amazing! In fact, it’s as vivid as her world […]

HOT Suspense! Nobody Does It Better by Lexi Blake [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from Inkslinger Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Holy hotness! I just finished reading Nobody Does it Better by Lexi Blake and OMG! How shockingly delicious is it?! This is the first book I read by Lexi Blake and I found out that this is the FIFTEENTH book in her Masters and Mercenaries Series my jaw basically dropped. This means I have to read the other 14 books, plus the various novellas? Also, How cheeky are the titles of […]
