Book Review | The Marriage Game

Over the past year or so, I have been getting back into romance novels. I read a lot of them when I was in my late teens and early twenties, but then I went through a (dumb) phase where I would only read more “high brow” books. Now that I’m in my thirties and no […]

Book Review | Real Men Knit

If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that, in addition to reading, I like to knit. I don’t knit as much as I’d like to (mostly because nice yarn is expensive and also because I live in Southern California, which means I don’t really get to wear the things I knit), but […]

Book Review | Get a Life, Chloe Brown

The last romance novel I read was not great (review is coming), and I was extra disappointed because it looked like it was going to be a fun, diverse romance. And I definitely want more diverse romance. I needed a book to redeem that experience, and decided to pick up Get a Life, Chloe Brown. […]

Book Review | Bringing Down the Duke

Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. So it’s a little surprising that, of all the romance I’ve read over the past year or so, not a single one of them was historical. In fact, I think the last historical romance I read was Outlander. And that was five years ago. But when I […]

Book Review | You Deserve Each Other

I’ve been in the mood for a good rom com for a while (and I’ve watched Always Be My Maybe on Netflix more times than is healthy), so I was glad to see that Sarah Hogle’s You Deserve Each Other came up in my review queue. Yes, I keep a list of when I’m supposed […]

My Favorite Romances NOT in Romance Books

Last year, I read a lot of romance novels. Which I haven’t done since I was a teenager (I read a lot of Meg Cabot back then). But one thing I have always, consistently loved reading are books that fit into other genres and have romantic subplots. I love a good romance in any book, […]

Book Review | Love, Unscripted

I’ve mentioned a few times that last year, I got really into reading romance. And I read a lot of great ones. So I thought I’d take a chance on a debut romance author and read Owen Nicholls’s Love Unscripted. It sounded kind of like 500 Days of Summer, which definitely sounded intriguing. (All reviews […]

Romance Recommendations

I’ll be honest: I kind of hate Valentine’s Day. I’m not a fan of pink or hearts (the shape of which was originally modeled after female anatomy or ancient contraceptives – and yes, I ruin a lot of things with history #sorrynotsorry). And I don’t like a holiday that gives couples unreasonable expectations and single […]

Book Review | Would Like to Meet

This year is the year I finally came to terms with how much I love romance novels. Specifically, romantic comedies. Which is really no surprise since I love rom coms. Why I never thought I would also love them in book form, I will never know. But I have seen the light, and I’m not […]

Book Review | Meet Cute

This year, I have been eating my words and discovering that I actually do enjoy romance novels. I know, shocking. I love rom coms, so I don’t know why I thought I wouldn’t. But I am more than making up for it by reading all the romance novels I can get my hands on. Okay, […]
