Read a Romance Book: Historical Romance

A Beginner’s Guide to Romance Novels I started the Read a Romance Book series on this blog as an introduction to the world of romance books.   What is a Romance Novel There are many genres and subgenres of a romance novel but essentially, it is defined as a fictional story with a central love story and an emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending.

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 […]

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Let’s talk about anything bookish! This is a different discussion post because it is a little bit personal. Well, not in a personal PERSONAL, if you know what I mean, but something that I want to share with everyone. I am an extremely emotional reader. And really, I tear up at minor things – usually meet-cutes! hahaha But seriously, though. Sometimes, I DO search out emotional reads purposely so I can ugly cry. I have no idea why I do that, but I just do! I am an extremely emotional reader and a mood reader to boot, so both are a crazy combo! In fact, Mr. He […]
