This was a riveting listen! Where the Blame Lies by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook Review]

I was not ready when I decided to listen to Where the Blame Lies. This book is riveting and scary and had me at the seat of my pants! I am just amazed at what an amazing and strong character Josie is! Before I start my review, I just want to let everyone know that this book has serious trigger warnings! While some of the scenes during Josie’s captivity, there are parts of her captivity that are so vivid and scary! Where the Blame Lies is a book like no other I’ve read before. I usually avoid triggering books like this, […]

It’s the End of the World as We Know It… and I don’t Feel Fine | March 2020 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   It’s sad and scary times we are in right now, Wormies. I’ve been trying really hard to limit getting on social media or listening to the news but I just can’t seem to avoid anything. Even though I know that this will pass, it is still one of the scariest things that has ever happened this decade – and we are only 3 months in! It’s good that we have technology so we can communicate with people who are in other countries.  I was able to video chat with my fam […]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

We finally have the last Ravenels book and one of my highly anticipated books of 2020! Unfortunately, Chasing Cassandra was a bit of a disappointment for me. But at 3.5 stars, it was still an enjoyable book. Let me explain. I have been intrigued by Tom Severin since he first appeared in Cold-Hearted Rake. As you now already know, I am a fan of self-made men and Lisa Kleypas writes the best ones! Derek Craven, John McKenna, and Simon Hunt, anyone? But I digress. Chasing Cassandra was sweet and fun and quirky (not too quirky, like Pandora’s book) and it […]
