Book Review | Red, White & Royal Blue

There are very few things I don’t read. But there are a few genres I read very, very rarely. One of those is romance (it’s just not something I gravitate towards). I can count on one hand the number of books I’ve read that are just romance books (not other genres with a romantic subplot), […]

Book Review | Kismet

I’m not sure why, but lately I’ve been getting the urge to read books that are not what I typically reach for. Case in point: Kismet, a novel that decidedly fits into the romance category. I like romance in books, but I normally enjoy it more in the context of other generes (i.e. fantasy or historical […]

Book Review | The Wedding Date

Sometimes, all I want is a nice, easy read with a little fluff and a nice helping of romance. A romantic comedy in book form. Because who doesn’t like the occasional romantic comedy?

Book Review | The Hating Game

How many times have I said I don’t read romance novels? A lot? Well, today’s the day I eat those words. That’s right, Sally Thorne’s The Hating Game changed my mind about an entire genre. Okay, not an entire genre, I’m not about to go buy any of those books at the supermarket with half-naked farmhands on […]

Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Literary Couples

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a Valentine’s Day freebie. I’m not really a fan of Valentine’s day – I don’t like pink or hearts or chocolate. Whether I’m in a relationship or not, I just find it cloying and annoying (don’t even get me started on the whole history of the holiday). I thought […]
