Update: What I Kept

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog post asking for help on how to whittle down my old historical romance collection. It was a huge project for me to collect them throughout the years, but they were taking up too much shelf space and not sparking enough joy anymore. But it it was too hard to decide what to get rid of! I got a few really helpful answers, and after sitting on it for a while, I finally went through and weeded a ton of books. I thought it’d be fun to share a bit more about that process and what my shelves look like now! Continue reading

Fall Reading Plans

I really enjoyed making seasonal plans for my reading over the summer, and thought I’d carry that over into the fall and see how it goes! Not going to lie, it’s kind of just more of the same: plans to read from what I already own. But I think I want to really increase my rereading this fall, too! Continue reading

Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2021

My list of most anticipated fall books is shockingly small this year! Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of books on my radar that come out in the next few months that I’m looking forward to reading. But only four that I’m eagerly anticipating and have preordered! Continue reading

Summer Reading Recap + Favorites

I had a lot of fun this summer working towards my summer reading goals; it made me feel super productive!

#FallInLoveBingo TBR

We weren’t sure we were going to do fall bingo this year since things have been kind of crazy lately, but Jenica decided she wanted to go ahead with it and I was more than happy to help! Things were extra busy for Aarya right now, but hopefully we can get her back for winter bingo!!¬†

It’s always so much fun to put these boards together and think of a bunch of different prompts, and I know it’s kind of clich√© to say that this one is my favorite so far, but it’s really true! I can’t wait to get reading and check off this board. Continue reading

Arc Roundup: Battle Royal and All the Feels

I have two highly anticipated new contemporary romances to talk about with you today! I was definitely intrigued by Battle Royal when I first saw the cover, but it was its pitch as a GBBO-inspired sunshine/grump romance that really sold me and made me want to try my first Lucy Parker (it will definitely not be my last!). And of course I had to review All the Feels after the phenomenal setup for this couple that Olivia Dade did in Spoiler Alert!

Arc Roundup: Role Model

I usually prefer to group my reviews together, but I had so many thoughts about Role Model by Rachel Reid (spoiler: I loved it!) that I word vomited a super long review. Whoops! I’ve cleaned it up significantly from that first draft but this is still a pretty long, somewhat rambly review with some spoilers clearly marked further down. Though if you prefer your reviews completely spoiler free, maybe skip this one and just know that it’s an excellent addition to the series! Continue reading

Help! What books should I keep??

I moved a few months ago, and it was a pretty momentous move because I now have enough room for all of the books I’ve been storing in my closet at my parents’ house for YEARS! It’s very exciting! But now that I’ve been reunited with all of these books, I’ve realized that there are A LOT, and I don’t think it sparks joy anymore to keep them all. But idk what exactly to keep, so that’s where you come in! Continue reading
