“Why can’t everyone be like you?”
I can be enough of your world that it feels like everyone is.

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 »

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 »

This was my first audiobook with Libro.fm and I am super thankful I was able to listen to it as part of their Influencer ALC program (Audiobook Listening Copies). I ate it up and finished in less than 3 days: which is no surprise as Christina Lauren romances are my jam.

This love story reminds me of when I was a tween playing with my Barbie & Ken dolls. After watching General Hospital with my mom (what is Sonny taking to look the same 20 yrs later) I would think up the most outlandish storylines of how Ken had to win over Barbie. Twice in a Blue Moon was reminiscent of those times: a bit over the top like the Pretty Woman love story but you still watch it, love it, and root for them every time.Read More »

I’m Back!

I can’t believe its been just over 3 months since I last posted a review. Saturday Nite Reader Junior and I have had a lot of couch time that included more TV than reading – oops – BUT, I did manage to finish 1 physical book and 12 audiobooks. Audiobooks were my jam…and yes, I count them as books “read.”

Here is a peak as to what reviews I will be posting soon:Read More »

If you didn’t already know: I am a sucker for a good cowboy romance. I have only read Maisey Yates’ Copper Ridge series, but when Berkley Romance gifted me with The Good Ones I couldn’t resist. After a few heavier reads I needed something sugary sweet. Ain’t no shame in my reading game. Read More »

It was okay, it could have been way better. I was disappointed in how flat it fell.

It left me more irritated than love sick. What a bummer.Read More »
