Y'all know if I hear about a Jane Eyre retelling, I am going to read it and when I heard about Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood, I was all in. Jane Eyre and magic and cleansing houses of spirits and demons?? Yes, please. Unfortunately, while there were parts that I loved, there were… Continue reading Within These Wicked Walls: Magic, Evil Spirits, and Love
You ever read a romance novel and you're just like...DAAAMN, can I get some of that?? That is definitely the thought I had after reading Eight Perfect Hours. Like...where is my snow storm and traffic back up and perfect person in the car next to me???
I did not expect to fall in love with a couple of church kids. But it's Erin Hahn, so I figured, even if I ignored the church stuff, it would still be a good story. Well, she made me love the church stuff too and I am not even mad about.
There is nothing I love more than love between two people who so utterly and completely deserve it and that describes Dev and Charlie perfectly.
Y'all know I wasn't going to pass up reading and reviewing an Enola Holmes book! I loved the movie and when I saw that the newest book was available on NetGalley, I was like YES PLEASE.
And now back to our regular programming of historical romance! lol. The Merchant and the Rogue is the third book in Sarah M. Eden's Dread Penny Society series and omg it might be my favorite book in the series so far. Irishman. Russian woman. Explosions. Fighting. Love. Secrets. What more could you want?? (if you want a Cillian gif...stick with me)
Y'all know I am a sucker for a good romance and The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara is definitely that! I really love how it is written. You think you know where the story is going in the first half and then it turns into something else that's both unique and so so wonderful. I'm so happy I signed up for this blog tour.
Sports books AKA books where sports happen usually aren't my thing, but if they're like Like Other Girls by Britta Lundin, then I will read ALL of them. I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but what I got was so goooood. Finding your people, dealing with internalized misogyny, and discovering love where you never expected it. FUCK YES.
A governess and a duke?!?!? Who would have thought?!? (except everyone who reads historical romance lol) I really liked how many different layers this book had. It wasn't just romance (although, that is always enough for me!). There's looking for a long-lost father, missing journals, a possible secret map, and the mission to open a hat shop!
Mimi sent me an early copy of John Eyre: A Tale of Darkness and Shadow (and I might have danced through the house) and is this my new favorite Mimi Matthews story???? It is definitely in the running.
