School shootings in America are abhorrent and awful and they’ve also affected a huge number of people in ways that our society still doesn’t quite seem ready to reckon with. But Roni Loren is “hunting big game” as Jen and Sarah would say (see Fated Mates, season two). Her The Ones Who Got Away series […]
The best thing about starting a blog, for me, was the fact that it introduced me to Dani, a fellow blogger and a true friend. We roomed together in Chicago for Kiss Con and it was amazing to discover that our electronically based friendship translates just fine to IRL. Our reading tastes frequently overlap, but […]
Given my grand plans of reading a lot of nonfiction and writing 50,000 words by the end of the month, the second half of November has definitely gone awry. That said, I’m not mad about it. November is an exhausting month. Like, when Daylight Savings kicks in (off?), it’s basically time to just start going […]
Winter is such a great time to grab a book and curl up with it in my reading nook and just read right next to my space heater. I love it so much and I’m so excited for these ten books that will keep me company while I do that.
So, I definitely got behind with some of my ARCs and I’m doing my best to catch up by the end of the year so, essentially, pray for me. I really enjoyed both of these books so I’m excited to talk to you about them today. At this point, both of these books are obviously […]
I am still participating in NaNoWriMo, never mind that I haven’t written in several days, but I’ve also been making good progress on my Nonfiction November challenge and also I’ve maybe (definitely) read some books not on my TBR at all. So let’s talk about those, shall we?
Alright, y’all, another romance novel with a cartoon cover, which means some of us have questions. I’m going to try and address those first: 1) Yes, this is absolutely a romance. It has a central love story, that truly is the main focus of the book, and an HEA. 2) Steam Factor: Explicit on page sex, no […]
Another month of me saying, “OMG WHERE DID THE TIME GO?” But for real, Halloween snuck up on me. But now it’s basically Christmas so hopefully I won’t say that at the end of November. Also, if I’m scarce on here, blame NaNoWriMo, which I’m going to try again. Is my novel fully plotted? Lol, […]
In shocking news, I did manage to start reading at exactly 8 am yesterday and started with One True Pairing by Cathy Yardley. I went to bed at midnight though so in addition to the eight hours I lost right there, I probably lost about 2 or 3 hours throughout the day as well. But […]
I think there are a couple of kinds of comfort reads and this series of [insert subgenre of romance] novels to run from your problems has mostly leaned toward the not angsty, but they’re likely going to start being a bit of a mix of the less angsty and the angsty that felt like they […]
