Most Wanted: May 2016

Uncategorized | April 28, 2016

April flew by, I swear. Well, I spent some of that time flying away myself (ha) so that… makes… sense. So it’s almost here. May – the month that’s sure to break all our pocketbooks. The number of pre-orders alone is staggering. Well, for me. But I can’t wait. These are the books I’m most excited about! May […]

ARC Book Review: This Is My Brain on Boys by Sarah Strohmeyer

ARC Book Review: This Is My Brain on Boys by Sarah Strohmeyer

Book Reviews | April 26, 2016

My fond memories of Sarah Strohmeyer’s Smart Girls Get What They Want were immediately evoked when I heard her newest title: This Is My Brain on Boys. Nerdy cute contemporaries are my jam, you might say. But whereas her debut novel was charming, fun, and practically perfect, this book was… not. Uh oh. The premise of this book […]

Book Haul #33: With All the Pretty, Pretty New Releases

Okay I may have splurged a little bit this month. But honestly, who can blame me? I mean – it’s April, so we have a shit-ton of awesome new releases coming out. And I went to NEW YORK CITY … AND I ONLY BOUGHT TWO BOOKS THERE. So all things considered, I still did pretty well. Right? Right. […]

Book Review: The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May

Book Review: The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May

Book Reviews | April 9, 2016

Ever since I fell in love with The Falconer almost two years ago, I’ve been anxious to read the sequel. Yeah, it took me a while to get to it, which I’m hitting myself for, but there. I read it. And it was awesome. Arguably, The Vanishing Throne is very much a middle book. There is a fair […]

Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Review: Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Book Reviews | April 7, 2016

When Ink and Bone first came out, it got some rave reviews that made me place it on my wishlist and file away under “definitely should check out at some point”. That point arrived in the form of a book club nomination. I went into the book not knowing much about it aside from (a) the good reviews, […]

ARC Book Review: No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista

ARC Book Review: No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista

Book Reviews | April 5, 2016

Fake dating, a.k.a. fauxmance – one of my favorite tropes in romance novels. So, yeah, I couldn’t resist No Love Allowed. I like contemporary romances because regardless of quality, they’re breezes to read and I can usually find something entertaining or fun about them. No Love Allowed had that… and it didn’t. It was rather average, though undeniably […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2016

Uncategorized | April 3, 2016

March 2016: the quiet month I started off well in March – I was back to reading, back to blogging, it seemed like I actually managed to schedule a post in advance a couple times and maybe could even hold to my schedule – but that got derailed. My grandmother passed away this month, and, well, that put […]
