I always start the draft for these monthly book purchase updates at the beginning of the month. It gives me a chance to look back over the previous month and encourage myself to do better throughout the coming month. Update: I went over my book budget by $1.22. That’s not… Read more »

NOTE: This review will contain spoilers for the first book in this series, Joust. If you haven’t read Joust, please do not read this review unless you are ok with spoilers. This one is cute. I enjoy this book but not as much as Joust. Alta continues the story of… Read more »

Review: Kidnapped the Wrong Sister by Marie Kelly

Review: Kidnapped the Wrong Sister by Marie Kelly

This shit right here…reminds me why I have a love/hate relationship with SPAs. This is like…a poorly written excuse for a Harlequin romance. It certainly has all the tropes of a Harlequin: -Beautiful virgin -ruthless rich Greek tycoon billionaire type who for some reason does no fact checking or research… Read more »
