Netgalley Bingo – June Update

Netgalley Bingo – June U..

It’s check-in time for my Netgalley update. Back in January I celebrated my 7 year blog anniversary and introduced a new individual challenge I am taking part in. I had picked 25 books on the Netgalley queue that I planned to read to help my Netgalley feedback ratio. It isn’t as easy as I expected. I have kind of slowed a little on my Netgalley Bingo card but that is slightly by design. I have been doing pretty well on it so I have time to get the rest of them read. So for this month I didn’t stress. I actually […]

Review: Paradise Cove – Jenny Holiday

Review: Paradise Cove – ..

I’m a Jenny Holiday fan girl. There is no point in denying it. When I first met her writing with her Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series I knew I was going to be a fan for a while. There is something so right about the stories she tells and each book in the series got better and better. And honestly the same has happened with the Matchmaker Bay series. While I enjoyed Mermaid Inn, I have fallen completely head over heels in love with Paradise Cove. Nora and Jake’s story was beyond my expectations and I’m going to tell you why. […]

Review: Accidental – Alex Richards

Review: Accidental – Ale..

I can’t remember how I heard about Accidental but I do remember I wanted to read it as soon as I learned about its existence. It seemed like a book that not only had never read anything like, but something that is current and could almost have been ripped from the headlines. I knew it would be a heavy book, and I was prepared. And although it wasn’t as emotional as I expected, Accidental was a book I was happy to have read. Accidental is about 16 year old Johanna who is being raised by her grandparents after her mom […]

Back Pages: Illuminae – Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Back Pages: Illuminae – ..

In November I had a small idea for a blog tour called Back Pages. I wanted readers to go back and read those books they has been planning to and never got around to. I had every intention of hosting a legit blog tour for it. Well COVID happened and plans ended up changing while everyone got used to a new sort of normal. So while Back Pages isn’t going to happen has planned, I’m kicking off my new version of the plan with the review of my selected book.   Illuminae was an unexpected reading experience for me. I’m […]

Monthly TBR – July 2020

Monthly TBR – July 2020

What started as an experiment on finding a reading system that works for me has turned into me once again falling in love with a TBR List. For 8 months in 2019 I created a TBR List and read books off of  those lists. Some months I was successful and didn’t deviate and some months I had to add books or take books away. All in all though I really enjoyed having a structured list to go off of so I’m sticking with it in 2020. And I thought May was a good reading month. In June I blew up […]
