There is no one book for everyone, and that is okay.
If there is a lot of hype around a book it can go either way: it can exceed the already high expectations you have set for it, or it can disappoint you. Not sure if it would have disappointed you if it wasn’t hyped up – or maybe it would have – but either way, how you respond and feel during and after reading a book is your own.
Below are three books that didn’t give me the 5 star feels it gave other readers; that is not to say they weren’t good, I just had a different reaction to either a small plot point or the whole book. If you read them, I hope you loved them, and if you decide to read them, I hope you love them! Read More »

Recognize this man?
It’s Empire Records own Rex Manning; IRL he’s Maxwell Caulfield…one of the narrators of this audiobook!
The Bromance Book Club deserves all the fun, laugh out loud stars. A unique take on romance; where a group of men formed a book club and read romance to learn a thing or two about their women. It’s genius!Read More »
I told you I would be a one stop shop for holiday reads this December! I tried to read all the books in my Bookstagram tree, but after a few too many less than jolly reads I switched gears. I feel like Scrooge!
I’m terrible. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy them enough to DNF, its just that my reading was slow moving and I didn’t have that need to turn the next page feeling to whip through them. Darn it, I just realized I may be in a bit of a reading slump so don’t take my reviews to much to heart.
First up (the best of the bunch):

25 Day ‘Til Christmas was my first holiday read of the season! This month being dedicated to as many holiday reads as I can power through before year end. Consider Saturday Nite Readeryour one stop shop for holiday reads this year 😉
Okay, now back to the book review you have all been anxiously awaiting…
For fans of A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. I whipped through this book in a day. It is not a cheery, sugar cookie read. It’s more in line with It’s a Wonderful Life, where you watch and hope for goodness to come back to Kate, and come fast. Read More »

When I discovered Christina Lauren books this summer I devoured The Unhoneymooners, Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Dating, and Roomies. I needed more of them and chose Love and Other Words next.
I will admit I was super hesitant to start it because I try to avoid love triangles and the like. It breaks my heart when someone has to pick between two people and the person left behind makes me cry (unless that person is a total tool). But, I took the plunge and gave this a go. Elliot was swoon worthy a few chapters in: this author duo knows how to write a charming character!Read More »
Wow, another year flew by. This year my reading pace slowed a bit, but for good reason: my husband and I welcomed Saturday Nite Reader, Jr. in July!
In order to keep up with all the new releases I did up my audiobook game. Now that I am back to work I am using my commute time to pick up a book; they certainly make commuting more enjoyable. head in a book = leave me alone ;)

I LOVED this book!I think I may trade in my cowboys for Alaskan Yeti’s, or maybe this one particular yeti who happens to be referred to as a sky cowboy…so essentially its the same and my love of cowboys remains intact. HA!Read More »
