Today is my dad’s birthday!!! In celebration, I decided to review a book about an awesome dad (because my dad is AWESOME. Ask anyone). Caveat: that’s pretty much where the similarities end between this character and my dad.
Today is my mom’s birthday!!! If you read my review of (LINK!), you’re already aware that my mom is the person who got me hooked on romance novels. The first one she gave me was a period romance, so in honor of her birthday, I am reviewing a period romance for you lovely readers!
Amazon Kindle’s “Recommended for You” list got me again, guys! I’m telling you, I need to stop looking at that list or I’m going to have to get another part time job to afford my book addiction (since employers don’t hire people they have to pay benefits to anymore…) This time, it recommendedThe Decoy Bride by Lizzie Shane and I happened to be looking desperately for some kind of light-hearted hijinx to help me ride the tide of emotions from the last book I read. Of course this one caught my attention!
I have a confession to make: I am afraid of fire. Honestly, if you were to ask me the way I absolutely DO NOT want to die, the answer will be “Fire” and it will probably be yelled at the top of my lungs in about point-five seconds. I absolutely hate it. So when I tell you that I picked this book up at a thrift store a while ago because I’d already read one of the other books in Susan Wiggs’s Chicago Fire Trilogy, you should know that reading the second book was a complete accident.
I mentioned in my review of Good Christian B****es that I bought the book from a 2 for $8 sale rack. Seeing Red was the second book I bought that day and I cannot wait to tell you about it!
I have been watching the reboot of Charmed and it’s put me in the mood for some kick-ass ladies with supernatural abilities. So, when I saw Ever Strange on Amazon, I decided it was worth starting a new series to satisfy my craving - even though I did zero research on the book in advance, other than reading the blurb on Amazon. And let me tell you, this book delivers supernatural-ability-wielding kick-ass women in spades.
It’s SUMMERTIME and I haven’t had an opportunity to get out and enjoy the weather as of yet (I’ve been stuck at work for what feels like forever x_x). So, I felt the need to find a book that would satisfy my summer craving. Love on a Summer Night even has “summer” in the title! And it’s a Romance!!! What could be better?
I have reviewed a couple of Linda Howard books since this blog started, but I recently came across Mackenzie’s Legacy in a trip to the bookstore and I got really excited. I had already read three of the Mackenzie Family novels and this copy has two that I hadn’t read yet: Mackenzie’s Mountain and Mackenzie’s Mission. I’m only going to review Mackenzie’s Mountain today, because I have a lot of things to say about it, but I have now read all of the books in the Mackenzie Family series and I’ll probably talk a bit about them toward the end of this review, as well.
As you probably already know, it is the month of my birthday! As such, I’m leaning hard into the romance genre with my list of books to review because...well, I really like reading romance novels. I came across A Rake’s Redemption in one of the email lists I subscribe to and it seemed promising. Here’s a quick synopsis:
Dear Reader, Have you ever read a book and thought, “This is not what the blurb made me think it was?” Sometimes, that’s a good thing - even occasionally a great thing - because the plot takes you on an unexpected adventure. Sometimes, though, it makes you long for the plot-you-thought-could-be, and you are disappointed…
