Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Gosh. I really didn’t care for this one at all. 🙁 And that makes me rather sad. I mean, I read a lot of Lauren Dane. But the Chase Brothers series and the Petal, Georgia spin off aren’t…working for me. At all. So. Once and Again. Lily and Nathan grew… Read more »

Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Trigger Warning: There is an attempted rape in this story but it is stopped before anything happens. I feel I need to start this review with admitting to a little bias: I dislike New Adult (NA) as a genre. I dislike almost everything about NA (which seems centered around college-aged… Read more »

Review: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers

Review: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is one of the best group reads I’ve had all year! I truly enjoyed this read – even though I didn’t expect to at first. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a…difficult book to categorize. When I’ve tried to… Read more »

Review: Freight Trained by Sarah Curtis

Review: Freight Trained by Sarah Curtis

Freight Trained was cute but very forgettable. While reading Freight Trained, I kept feeling like the book was on the cusp of being really good but just couldn’t quite get over the final hump into greatness. So. It was good. The characterization(s) was ok – not great but ok. Cole’s… Read more »

Review: Intermezzo by Delphine Dryden

Review: Intermezzo by Delphine Dryden

It’s good to read some enjoyable Delphine Dryden again! I’ve read a decent handful of Delphine Dryden over the years but was stymied by the first book in the Steam and Seduction series. For some reason being unable to get through that book gave me a bit of a mental… Read more »

Review: Bunny Tales – Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion by Izabella St. James

Review: Bunny Tales – Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion by Izabella St. James

Let me start with some honesty: Bunny Tales is not my typical sort of read. I became interested in reading Bunny Tales because I totally used to watch The Girls Next Door which starred Kendra Wilkinson, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. When I started watching it, my curiosity was set… Read more »

Review: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes

Review: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes

There are no words to describe the sheer number of emotions I ran through while reading As You Wish. Extreme happiness, sheer amazement, incredulous laughter, sadness and actual tears. As You Wish is The Princess Bride of non-fiction. (See what I did there??) “Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate…. Read more »
