My very favorite author. She writes it, I’m reading it:)

Love these two. Such great characters.

Top Ten Tuesday – Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions.

E-books

I prefer e-books to paper. I love that my Kindle always has hundreds of books on it.

No Fantasy for Me

I have no interest in the fantasy genre. I used to love it, but I’ve completely lost interest in it.

I’m a muggle who hasn’t (or will) read Harry Potter

I will not, nor have I ever, read the Harry Potter series. I also haven’t seen the movies.

Books are always better than the movies that come later

There are a few exceptions (Jurassic Park and Hunger Games).

First person, please

I don’t prefer books written in the third person. I find it much easier to connect with a character when the book is told from their point of view.

The shorter, the better

I don’t care for books longer than 400 pages. As a romance reader, it just doesn’t need to be that long to be a good story.

My son is YA age, so that genre is out

I have a hard time reading YA and college age stories now that my son is that age. I used to really love them.

No virgins

If I see the word virgin either in the summary or a review on goodreads, I’m out. Not a trope I’m interested in reading.

No shirt, I’m interested!

Much to my children’s dismay, I am attracted to covers with shirtless men.

Top Ten Tuesday – Best Books over the past 8 years

Hey all!! I’m still here – just taking a little break from reading. Overwhelmed myself with ARC’s and such, so now I’m reading what I want, when I want. And watching a lot of stuff that I missed when I was so busy reading! So sorry for my absence – I will try to get better at posting:)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Best books released over the past ten years.

2012: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

2013: Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley

2014: Friend-Zoned by Belle Aurora

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Loved with less than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I Loved with less than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads.

I have to admit I was surprised by some of these lows numbers….

My Coyote Ugly Life by Jessica Spoon – 833 ratings.  I laughed hysterically during this book and have been waiting patiently for the sequel (come on Ms. Spoon).

Inspired by You by Steph Nuss – 49 ratings. This one surprises me, as it’s the last book in a series and it’s so good.

Dancing in the Rain by Kelly Jamieson – 752 ratings. This was a really beautiful story. Surprised more people haven’t read it.

Can’t Text This by Teagan Hunter – 1,901 ratings. Third book in a series which is hysterically funny. Shocked by these low numbers.

His Rules by Scott Hildreth – 620 ratings. Great alpha male book with low ratings.

The Good Samaritan by R.C. Boldt – 357 ratings. This is my second favorite book of 2018, with a refreshingly original story. I wish more people would pick this one up and read it.

Insistent by Kaylee Ryan – 454 ratings. Another series finisher by a popular author. I really loved this book, especially the main character.

Trigger City by Sean Chercover – 693 ratings. Only mystery on her about a Chicago PI. I’m a Chicagoan, so I loved this, but apparently didn’t reach much farther than our market.

When You Became Mine by A.S. Teague – 204 ratings. I loved this second chance romance.

Release Blitz & Review – Going for the Hole by L.P. Dover – 295 ratings. Loved this cute golf love story.
