This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I chose contemporary for this topic because, well for most other genres, the books I’ve read are in series and then it’s just repetitive and everything. Since most contemporaries are stand alone, I have a LOT more to choose from. These are all my absolute favorites, and all of them have 5 star ratings. Let the gushing begin.

Kasie West does it again! Oh my god, guys, I am so happy. I want to dance around and throw confetti in the air, because obviously I’ve officially found my author soul mate. This is Kasie’s third book, and just like the other two, it gets 5 stars from me. I mean, there’s auto-buy authors, and then there’s please-can-I-stalk-you-and-maybe-marry-you authors, and that’s kind of what Kasie West is becoming to me. *cough* Okay. Calm down, Debby. Cool it.
Errrr, I went a bit overboard. Buuuuuut at the same time I regret nothing. A great stack of these books came in on Valentine’s Day, and I made it into a thing. Valentine’s gifts to myself, a nice meal, a good movie, and a romantic book. It was a wonderful evening, overall 🙂 (See Instagram evidence.)

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Looking up books for this list, I realize that most romances that I love are more of the awwwwwww and flail-worthy types than swoooooon-y types. There is a difference, okay? Swoonful romances I interpret as less “cutesy” and more sexy and irresistible. So. There’s that. Semantics but whatever. I clearly just needed some justification for not putting Adorkable on this list. 1. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller Prepare to see this book on a looooot of TTTs from now on. But oh my […]
This survey was created by the lovely Jamie at the Perpetual Page-Turner! It might be a bit late, but I absolutely didn’t want to do it before the year was over, in case the last couple reads were absolutely amazing. So, yeah. Late, maybe. But I regret nothing. (I’ll have a personal review of 2013 later involving blog statistics, but that’ll be way late because I want to get my reviews reformatted first.) Best in Books 2013 1. Best book you read in 2013? I read 93 books this year. I already cheated on the TTT of this topic and made it 20 books. And […]
This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. It’s finally the last day of the year! I honestly can’t believe that because it feels like just yesterday it was August. I don’t know how the time has past so quickly. Um. Anyway. So I read 93 books this year. o_O Wow. Yeah, making a top ten out of that is not working for me (too many amazing books!), so I’ll give you my top ten 2013 releases and pre-2013 releases. I actually have a document ranking all 93 books I read in order, so […]
This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Wow, I love this topic, because it got me to look back on this year and see how many amazing books I read this year. I was still so much of a n00b at the beginning of 2013, so I had a lot of epic series to get into. Anyway, let’s just get on with it. 1. Kasie West I keep going on and on about how much I loved Pivot Point. It is an all-time favorite, and I just loved the skillful storytelling method Kasie […]
This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Is it that time again? Let’s look back at my Fall TBR… Hmm. 6/10. Ouch. Mood reading definitely took over this season. Anyway. Hopefully I can do better this time. I’m still waiting to, one of these days, get 10 out of 10. *is a bit of an optimist* 1. Split Second by Kasie West Remind me to pre-order this about.. yesterday. Um, obviously, knowing my undying love for Pivot Point, Split Second is at the absolute top of my TBR. I must have this. I […]
