Review | The Roommate

When I saw this book on NetGalley, I knew I needed to read it. Unfortunately, life got in the way, which means I ended up buying the audiobook instead. I tend to buy the audiobook anytime I’m late in the review game. I’m delighted that I bought the audiobook because the narrators were great! Brittany Pressley & Teddy Hamilton brought the book to life. At times, I did wish that the female voices were just a bit different, but other than that, they did a fantastic job.

With COVID-19 and a lot of personal issues, I’ve been filling my life with romance, and this book was exactly what I needed. The Roommate is one of those books that will make you smile. It was well written, humorous, and incredibly spicy. Don’t let the cutesy cover fool you. This book packs a lot of steam, and I was here for it.

Review | To Sleep in a Sea of Stars

I have to admit that it took me quite some time to formulate my thoughts on this book. When I was in High School, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon was taking over. Christopher Paolini was a household name, and I enjoyed the first of the Inheritance Cycle series. So, when I saw this book was offered up on NetGalley as an Audiobook, I knew it was for me. I requested right away and slightly regretted it when I saw how long this audiobook was. I tend to have a maximum of 15 hours when it comes to length, and at 32 hours & 30 minutes, this book was very obviously over that 15-hour max.

Review | The Boyfriend Project

I haven’t read a book by Farrah Rochon, so when I saw The Boyfriend Project offered up on NetGalley, I had to jump at the opportunity. Luckily for me, I also received the audiobook from Libro.fm through their influencers program. I’ve been struggling with reading books so listening to the audiobook was a glorious thing. Je Nie Fleming did a fantastic job narrating this book. I’m so impressed with her narrations that I added her to my favorite narrator’s list.

August 2020 | Wrap-Up

Wow, it has been a while since I wrote one of these wrap-up posts. First off, sorry about that, but with the world going to crap & my aunt dying, I didn’t have the energy to do much reading nor blogging. I’m finally getting to a better state of mind, so I figured it was time to write my wrap-up.

Review | Deal With The Devil

This book was everything I wanted and more. I’ve loved Kit Rocha since I found their Beyond series, so when I saw Tor picked up this book, I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to read this book. It’s honestly everything that I would have wanted. I’m delighted that MacMillian removed the ebook embargo so that I didn’t have to wait three months to read it. But trust me, this book would have been worth the wait.

Review | Take a Hint, Dani Brown

As many of you know, Talia Hibbert quickly became one of my favorite romance authors last year. So, I was extremely excited to get the ARC of Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, this book went to the back burner. I finally found the energy to read, but my focus was all over the place. Instead of reading the ARC, I bought the audiobook from Libro.fm and dived in.

Review | Devolution by Max Brooks

When I saw that Max Brooks had a new book out, I had to jump out and request it from NetGalley! World War Z is one of the top books I have read and one that I always recommend, so I couldn’t wait to get started on Devolution! Unfortunately, life happened, and I couldn’t seem to focus enough to pick this book up. Luckily, Libro.FM came swooping in with this audiobook as an option for their influencer program.

May 2020 | Wrap-Up

Hey Everyone! May is over, which means that it is time to give you a bit of an update on my reading progress! These past few months have been hard on me and incredibly hard on the world. Cal is doing well. He’s as hyper as ever and is acting like he didn’t have major surgery last month.

As you all know, I’ve been pretty quiet here. I truly appreciate you all staying here and reading my posts. I’m hoping that June will reinvigorate me, and I will start to be more active on my blog.

Review | Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young

Black Tangled Heart lives up to its title. Each character is tangled up with pain to the point where I questioned if some of the characters were redeemable. In the first half of the book, we got to see Jane and Jamie grow up, and I loved watching their relationship flourish. Both characters were well written, and I enjoyed seeing them grow up. With that said, I have to say that I struggled to read some of the sexual scenes.

Review | The Happy Ever After Playlist

The Happy Ever After Playlist is the first Abby Jimenez book that I have read. It can be read as a standalone, which made me happy seeing as Libro.fm gave me this one as part of their influencer program. Luckily for me, I didn’t look at the narrators. Look, so many people LOVE Erin Mallon, but I don’t. Her narrations of female characters tend to grate on my nerves. I tend to avoid any of the books she narrates, which makes me sad because she narrates some fantastic books. With all that said, I found that if I speed up her narrations, she isn’t terrible. Zachary Weber, as always, was fantastic.
