Love and Other Natural Disasters | Misa Sugiura | Book Review

Love and Other Natural Disasters was a book that was easy to get into. From the beginning, I could tell that it was going to be set up as a romantic comedy. Unfortunately, there were times when the comedy felt more cringeworthy than romantic comedy. The main character would do or say something that wasContinue reading “Love and Other Natural Disasters | Misa Sugiura | Book Review”

The Paris Connection | Lorraine Brown | Book Review

The Paris Connection gave me the gift of being able to travel to Paris through a book. Paris is one of the places on my travel list just because I think it would be amazing to see the Eiffel Tower in person. Even more so after the views which were described within this book. IContinue reading “The Paris Connection | Lorraine Brown | Book Review”

It’s Raining Men | Julie Hammerle | Book Review

It’s Raining Men is a book that really took me by surprise. I’ll admit when I first saw the advance reader copy on Netgalley, the famous hit by The Weather Girls immediately started playing in my head. You know: “it’s raining men! halleluiah! it’s raining men!” which I’m pretty sure was author Julie Hammerle’s planContinue reading “It’s Raining Men | Julie Hammerle | Book Review”

Love At First Fight | Mary Jayne Baker | Book Review

Love At First Fight is a modern day retelling of Much Ado About Nothing. Now I’ll admit that I’m not completely familiar with the original but, I was drawn to the enemies to lovers storyline. The title just screamed banter and tension to me which this book did have. Unfortunately, I didn’t think it fullyContinue reading “Love At First Fight | Mary Jayne Baker | Book Review”

I Kissed A Girl | Jennet Alexander | Book Review

I Kissed A Girl is the debut novel of Jennet Alexander. I was drawn to it based on the premise of it being a LGBTQIA romance between a struggling B horror movie actress and the new make up artist on set. In my mind I was immediately visualizing a B horror set like something youContinue reading “I Kissed A Girl | Jennet Alexander | Book Review”

She is not the only one who has inherited though. HerContinue reading “Satisfaction Guaranteed | Karelia Stetz-Waters | Book Review”

This Poison Heart | Kalynn Bayron | Book Review

This Poison Heart was a book that I had anxiously been waiting for since I first heard about it. I got the sense that it was going to be like a retelling of The Secret Garden with perhaps a more sinister calling ala Little Shop of Horrors. And I happen to love both of thoseContinue reading “This Poison Heart | Kalynn Bayron | Book Review”
