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.Read More
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.Read More
Sparrow by Mary Cecilia Jackson will stick with you. It’s poignant, well written, and engaging. This book was nothing that I expected but something that may hit home. This book deals with some extremely serious events, so be warned and ready to have that discussion with your child if/when they pick this book up.Read More
When I was approached about this book tour, I knew I needed to jump in. Magic Unleashed is right up my alley, and I couldn’t wait to get started. I ended up low on time, so I snagged the audiobook so that I could read it while reading a few other books in between. The narrator did a good job of portraying the characters, though, at times, his voice bordered on monotone.Read More
As some of you know, I’ve wanted to learn how to for quite some time. It’s always been that crazy dream of mine, but I never got off my butt to do it. This year, I’ve decided to do something that scares me, which means I’m going to try to learn how to draw. I’m not good, but with the help of some books, I’m slowing getting better.
When I saw this book offered up on Netgalley, I knew I needed to take a chance on it. I’ve wanted to learn how to draw, and the Chibi style is one of my favorites. I LOVE anything chibi, so I figured this one would be great to help me explore if this is a style I would enjoy drawing in.Read More
Kiss of Vengeance is the second book in the True Immortality series by S. Young. As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of Samantha Young & I thoroughly enjoyed War of Hearts. When I received this book, I was extremely excited to dive into it, but it just wasn’t my favorite. It had many of the elements I love, but at times it fell flat.
This book was a slow burn with an enemy to lover trope feel.Read More

I read this book a few months ago, thanks to Libro.fm’s influencer program. I saw quite a few of my favorite blogs reviewing/talking about this book, so I knew I had to read it. I’ve waited a while to write this book review simply because I loved it so much. Get A Life, Chloe Brown is one of those books that will stay with you for a while after. I struggled to write this book review because nothing will do justice to how much I loved this book. I seriously want to shove it into everyone’s hands and tell them to read it.Read More
This book was action-packed. I typically don’t read audiobooks if they’re longer than 9 hours, so the 14 hours & 45 minutes of this book felt incredibly daunting. I hesitantly pressed play but I have to say, this book flew by. I was utterly engrossed.Read More
It’s been a few days since I finished this book, and I still don’t know quite how I feel about it. I picked this up as part of Libro.FM’s influencer program, and I was immediately drawn to the cover. Seriously, look at how pretty the cover is. I also enjoy post-apocalyptic reads. I figured I would give this book a chance.
I think it’s important to state that this book was not character-driven. You never even know the character’s name. You only know them as The Girl, The Man, and The Bear. I am such a character-driven reader that this honestly threw me off.Read More
