My Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I’m back and I’m excited because my reading mojo is back! I’m getting a little bit more reading done, which has been great since the pandemic happened! I’m really excited about the following books releasing the rest of this year! I’ve already read Don’t Hex and Drive by Juliette Cross and I gave it 5 stars! My review will be posted on the week of release date.       Do you have any of these books on your TBR? Have you read any of these books? Which books have you been highly anticipating?

If you love your fairy tales hot, read In a Stranger’s Bed by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

If you love your fairy tales hot, read In a Stranger’s Bed by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This is a review for the Sophie Jordan novella, In a Stranger’s Bed, and not all the novellas in this book.   Holy hotness, people! I was super shocked with In a Stranger’s Bed! I knew this was going to be sexy but I DID NOT expect it to be THAT sexy! And I mean this in a good way! So, In a Stranger’s Bed is a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three […]

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time   A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas    Book Review

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally taking the time to review ACoTaR!  I mean, it’s been a few weeks since I finished reading this book and I’m still left speechless.  Because the LAST FEW CHAPTERS!  OMG! OMG?!  What do you mean OMG?! Well, just what I said.  The last few chapters of ACoTaR decimated me.  In a good way and a bad way.  ACoTaR was a pretty slow start for me.  I guess it was because SJ Maas was setting up the whole world. Oh?  So back up.  What is this […]

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury | Audiobook Review

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. When I picked up The Forbidden Wish on Audible, I didn’t really know what to expect.  Sure, I have heard GREAT things about this book on the blogosphere, but I really try not to get carried away by the hype.  I was WONDERFULLY surprised by this here book of super AWESOMENESS! Super awesomeness, you say? Yes, I SAY!  It is a retelling of Aladdin and I love the arc Jessica Khoury went with.  This time, the jinni is female and her name is Zahra.  She has secrets of her own […]

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Disclaimer:  I listened to the audiobook way back in August so I am not 100% certain about most of the details, but I will review this to the best of my memory. Not another Snow White re-telling! I know many reviewers have compared Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis to Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles but I promise you, it isn’t!  Sure, it has the same themes as TLC but there is a marked difference. Tell me more! Obviously, Princess Snow is missing and she is […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “I don’t know how to review this book at all!” I finished listening to Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge via audiobook a couple of months ago and my initial thought was:  “I don’t know what to say.”  I mean, at this point, I think I am in a love/hate relationship with the book for many, many reasons.  Crimson Bound is a standalone book and is also a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  It is not in any way connected or a companion novel to Cruel Beauty but it has the same darkness and themes.  I admit that […]
