Let’s Talk: Authors Revisiting Old Series (Yes, I’m Talking About Midnight Sun)

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Stephenie Meyer recently announced the publication of Midnight Sun, her much hyped retelling of Twilight from Edward’s point of view. And while the internet is freaking out in anticipation, I…could not care less. Continue reading

Reading by Series vs Trope

This is a problem that I think is largely unique to romance, but do you tend to read more in order of a series, or skip around based on the trope you like? Growing up I had favorite authors from whom I’d read anything, but when looking into new books, I didn’t worry at all about the book being part of a series, and instead read whichever one sounded most interesting to me.

When Old Meets New: For the Roses and Hold Me

I’m back with another pair of reviews for my When Old Meets New reading project with Jenica at Firewhiskey Reader! The historicals we’ve been reading have gone steadily downhill, to the point where neither of us was able to finish For the Roses by Julie Garwood. Fortunately Hold Me by Courtney Milan is excellent, which saved this round from being a complete disaster!

Review: Audible Escape

I’m not a huge audiobook listener, so it never really made sense for me to take advantage of Audible Escape, the unlimited romance package you can add on to your Audible subscription. But I recently got an offer for a free three-month trial that I couldn’t turn down, and while I don’t 100 percent love the service, I’m really glad I gave it a try! Continue reading

Book Haul

I have a well-documented history of not buying a lot of physical books (check out my post about hitting a zero TBR here), and I’ve always been kind of averse to sharing book hauls for a number of reasons. But as bookstores face harder and harder times, I’ve been trying to do what I can to support them, and I thought it’d be fun to share some of my purchases here! Continue reading

Arc Roundup: Girl Gone Viral, First Comes Scandal, The Rakess, Starbreaker

It feels more than a little surreal to be talking about book reviews, but romances bring me a lot of joy right now, and I hope they can do the same for you. Keep reading for reviews of a new contemporary from Alisha Rai, Julia Quinn’s latest historical, a reverse-rake historical from Scarlett Peckham, and the latest installment in Amanda Bouchet’s sci-fi romance trilogy.

KissCon TBR Check-In

In the grand scheme of everything that’s been happening lately, the delay of KissCon is a pretty minor blip on the radar. But it’s something I was really looking forward to and I’m pretty bummed it’s been pushed back until August (fingers crossed that’s it can still happen then!). The silver lining, though, is that I have more time to make progress on my KissCon TBR, so I thought it’d be fun to do a quick check-in on that! Continue reading

Arc Roundup: Love Hard, Crush the King, The Earl Takes a Fancy

I have an exciting batch of new books to talk about this my latest arc roundup! Keep reading for reviews of the new contemporary release from Nalinin Singh, the conclusion to the beloved Crown of Shards trilogy, and the latest installment in Lorraine Heath’s Sins for All Seasons series.
