Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett

Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granet..

Posted September 19, 2016 in A Novel Read / 0 Comments

I may not have been very visible online in recent months, but I have still been reading. I’ve been doing a lot of reading the books that I want to read and have been wanting to read for a while, rather than reading books for the sole purpose of reviewing. Every once in a while, a book comes along that checks both boxes – one that I’ve been asked to review, and that I am super excited about reading. Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett was one of those books. As soon as I saw the cover, and those […]

8 Books That You Should Read

8 Books That You Should Read

Posted June 6, 2016 in A Novel Read / 7 Comments

One thing that most readers expect from a book blog seems to be book reviews. For me though, book reviews are actually one of the most difficult types of blog post to write, so I have a habit of either leaving them to the last minute or not sharing at all. I’ve also been on quite a roll with reading, and putting down my thoughts as soon as I finish a book tends to break up that rhythm. But I still want to shout from the rooftops how many awesome books I’ve been reading so that you can all go […]

10 June Releases to Add to Your Shelf

Posted June 3, 2016 in A Novel List / 2 Comments

June always seems to be guilty of adding an epic amount of reading to my shelves. All the BIG books are published ready for the summer, and I’m never short of reading material. I’m sure I still have some of last summer’s must-reads unread. So it was difficult to whittle this list down to just 10. Of course there are many other books being published in the coming weeks that cater to every type of reader, these are the ones that I have already read or plan to read.

Stars over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Meissner

Stars over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Mei..

Posted May 16, 2016 in A Novel Read / 0 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my thoughts on the books I’ve been reading, or blogged about anything to be honest. I’ve not been reading nearly as much as I did earlier in the year either, but a few recent reads have helped me regain speed there. One of those has been a book I finished up last week, Stars Over Sunset Boulevard. I hadn’t read anything by Susan Meissner before, I actually hadn’t heard of Susan Meissner before Stars Over Sunset Boulevard was pitched to me. Shame on me, right? I know now that Stars won’t be the […]
