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!

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

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

2019 Reading Stats

It’s time for my favorite post of the entire year! I love breaking down my reading stats from the past year, though it took me a little longer to put together this year than normal. I really should try to do better about updating my spreadsheet throughout the year so I don’t have to do all of them at once. Regardless, it is here, and it is glorious! Enjoy! Continue reading

Books My Sister Needs to Read

My younger sister Andi is a big reader (not quite at my crazy levels, but she reads a lot), but she doesn’t stay as attuned to new releases, so she comes to me for recommendations a lot. Not to brag too much, but I do a pretty good job for her if I do say so myself! I know her reading tastes pretty well, so she’s found a lot of new favorites from me. Anyways, she recently asked me for a new batch of recommendations, but she’s terrible at keeping track of them, so I figured I’d put a blog post together specifically for her and share it with everyone!

2019 in Books (Including Lots of Faves!)

I went back and forth numerous times on whether to do a traditional favorite books of 2019 post, but ultimately decided not to since I read so many books this year that I can’t adequately cover them all in one post. Instead, I’m going to highlight a few of my faves, talk about what I most want to reread, spotlight my new favorite authors, and point you to where you can find even more great book recs!!
