WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 15th

It was a week of hits and misses - I either loved what I was reading, or I didn't. There was no in between. I loved The Closer, a low angst marriage of convenience romance. I also finally got around to reading A Deal with the Devil, and it was slow burn goodness. Rebel Yule... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 8th

I had a GREAT reading week! Three 5-star and two 4-star reads - it's probably one of my most successful reading weeks this year! The theme seemed to be steamy reads, with each of these books featuring plenty of sexual tension and heat, but VERY different vibes. I loved the newest light and funny rom... Continue Reading →

Best of September 2021

September was an awesome reading month for me! I'm struggling to decide exactly which book was my favorite - there was a little something for every mood. I *think* that the stellar, science-filled debut, The Love Hypothesis, steals the show this month though. I loved the unique feel, and the grumpy cinnamon roll of a... Continue Reading →

SEPTEMBER 2021 WRAP-UP

September ended up being a pretty great reading month for me! I was in a little bit of a reading slump all summer long, and that changed with these September releases. I had more 5-star reads this month than I did all summer, and I protected myself from falling back into the slump by setting... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 24th

Best reading week I've had in months! I'm happy to report that September has been pretty great for new releases, and this week was the best one of all. Three out of these six books were 5-star reads, and two are serious contenders for my Best of the Year list (The Love Hypothesis and Falling... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 17th

It was a solid release week! After a very rocky summer, I'm just excited to see the 4 and 5-star reads outnumbering the less successful ones! I loved The Lie, easily my favorite book of the week. I also liked With You Forever and Hard Fall. The Rebound and Running on Diesel were not my... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 10th

I don't want to jinx it, but... I seem to be getting my reading groove back! I posted three reviews this week, and two were high quality, 5-star reads. I also read a few other books that will be releasing in the coming weeks, including another two 5-star reads. That's more than the entire month... Continue Reading →

AUGUST 2021 WRAP-UP

August was the month to expect the unexpected - in life, and in reading! After a lackluster July, I was really hoping that things would look up reading-wise in August, and they kinda/sorta did. The books that I read were pretty solid overall, with several 5-star romances in the mix. I didn't have a ton... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: August 20th

It was a quiet release week, so I've been catching up on ARCs and reading books from my TBR. I finally got around to reading (or listening!) to The Soulmate Equation, and it ended up being an excellent romance. I also liked The Dating Playbook, though it wasn't a total win. Beneath the Fallen Stars... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: August 13th

Things are looking up! At least in terms of my reading, lol. I've continued to read at a slower pace than usual (this is two weeks' worth of reviews), because real life is a bit distracting at the moment and doomscrolling is so easy to do. But I've had a lot more luck in finding... Continue Reading →

JULY 2021 WRAP-UP

While July seemed to be an extremely disappointing release month (it really was), looking back at all of the books I reviewed this month - the books were actually better than I thought! I reviewed a total of 22 new romances in July, and there were more 4 and 5-star reads than 3 and 2-star... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: July 23rd

Things are looking up! While July's releases have been really disappointing overall, this week had more hits than misses - and it ended on a high note! I absolutely loved the unique and interesting Heartbreak for Hire, easily one of my favorite books of the month (it releases on Tuesday). I also enjoyed the light... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: July 16th

I was VERY behind on my reading going into this week, and things did not improve! Work has been crazy the last couple of weeks, so reading has temporarily had to take a backseat, unfortunately. Fun fact: I'm able to read so much (5-7 books a week, usually) because Siri reads aloud while I'm at... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: July 9th

The word I'd use to describe this week: disappointing. I was really looking forward to a few of these books, and they just didn't go the way I'd hoped. I had three 3-star reads, one 4-star, and only one 5-star read. But the good news? That 5-star read was GREAT. I loved What If You... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: July 3rd

It was a solid release week! I'm way behind on my TBR at the moment, so I'll be catching up over the holiday weekend, but I still read several of this week's releases - and most of them were good! My favorite was easily the charming and nostalgic To Sir, With Love, but I also... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: June 25th

June has been a "pretty good" reading month overall, and that holds true as the month comes to a close. My favorite of this group was the Hollywood-inspired Love Scenes, followed by the angsty Something About You. I enjoyed The Next Mrs. Russo for its comedy (but not its romance). The lighthearted Fake Start, angsty... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: June 11th

Only one 5-star read for me this week - but it was a GREAT one! I loved every minute of The Perfect Catch, and it's going to be a serious contender for my Best of the Year list (more on that tomorrow 😉). I also enjoyed the tense and sexy Something Like Hate and the... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: June 4th

I'm calling this week a WIN, because I read three 5-star romances. I only read six in the entire month of May, so things are already looking up for June! An unlikable hero redeemed himself in the quiet and sexy The Rival, an alpha antihero showed his sweeter side in Cruel Saints, and two broken... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: May 28th

Let's call this a "pretty good" release week. While I read several 4-star books, there were no 5-star reads for me, and even two that received 2 stars. It's rare that I go that low, and I hate to see two in one week. Despite that, I had a lot of fun reading some of... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: May 21st

It was a very light but successful reading week for me. I've got about a million ARCs for next week's releases, so I only reviewed three 😱 books this week! Luckily, two of them were 5-star reads and strong contenders for my best of the month list. I absolutely LOVED Forbidden, and the laidback Fake... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: May 14th

It was a decidedly 4-star week, with several books that ALMOST hit the mark. Only the tense and steamy Out of the Blue won me over completely, and it was a total surprise because second chance romances typically don't resonate with me. But I loved it! I also enjoyed two light and sexy reads, He... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: Mega Edition

I know that I'm not in a reading slump because I've been reading some really excellent books, but they've been sprinkled amongst several... less than stellar... releases. I can't even tell you how many books I've set aside recently, and I have several in-progress reads on my Kindle that I'll get back to at some... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: April 16th

It was sort of an "okay" kind of week. There were more misses than hits, but some of the hits were VERY solid, so that's always a plus. I really enjoyed the chemistry-filled The Love Interest, my only 5-star read of the week. I loved the first half of Earn Your Extra Credit and the... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: April 9th

I can't remember the last release week that was this good! It was a busy week, full of some highly anticipated books for me - and it turned out very well! I absolutely adored Twice Shy, the sweet and swoony sophomore release from Sarah Hogle (whose debut, You Deserve Each Other, was one of my... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: April 2nd

I'm calling this week a success, because I read two great new releases, and three that were decent. March was a hit or miss month for me, so I'm happy with those results! All five of this week's books were written by go-to authors for me, so I honestly expected to like all of them,... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 26th

My reading week was... okay. Not great, not terrible. I'm not sure if it's these March releases letting me down or if I'm hitting a slump, but there have definitely been some losers lately. My favorite new release of the week was easily Her Reluctant Husband, though... I actually read it earlier in the month,... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 19th

Some of this week's releases were an unexpected treat! The majority of last week's releases didn't strike a chord with me, and I was quickly heading towards a slump when I started reading for this week. But the most unlikely of books pulled me out of that - and in a big, big way! I... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 12th

Well, it wasn’t a great reading week for me, but there were a couple of standouts. I loved the angsty, forbidden Love to Tempt You and got invested in the relationship at the center of The Art of Falling for You, the first book in a New Adult trilogy. The others all missed the mark... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 5th

It was a hit or miss kind of week! I was still catching up on my reading from last week, which was just ridiculously jam-packed with new releases. This week had some solid ones as well, including two that caught me by surprise. I loved the emotional and moving Float Plan, as well as the... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: February 26th

What a week! Yes, I'm fully aware that the number of reviews I posted this week is a little bonkers, but... can you blame me?! There were SO MANY new releases this week, and I just couldn't pass some of them up. And I'm, umm, actually not done reading this week's releases; I've still got... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: February 19th

I feel like I've been handing out 5-star ratings like candy this month, because the releases have been AWESOME. This week was particularly good; I read multiple 5-star romances, and the vibes were all completely different. There was the intense and steamy Ruthless Creatures, the emotional and tense Hard to Score, the low angst and... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: February 12th

February is shaping up to be a crazy - and crazy good - release month! This week felt a little bit like the calm before the storm, with some solid releases, but not the chaos that will be the 23rd. I feel like all of my favorite authors are releasing books this month, and that's... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: February 5th

February started off right with a few great new books! My favorite book of the week was easily How to Save a Life, but The Wedding Game was a funny little treat too - and it's available one month early! See my review for details. There were also solid releases from two authors whose work... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 29th

It was a hit or miss week, with one EXCELLENT workplace romance (Shipped), one sexy/sweet romance (The Sweetest Fix), and a few other pretty good books. That's sort of been the trend this month, where new releases have been a little spotty. The light release week lead me to Angie Hockman's debut, and I couldn't... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 15th

So, I haven't actually done a lot of reading in the last week, unless you count doomscrolling - which you really shouldn't, lol. I read several of this week's releases early, and that's probably a good thing. Ever After Always was the easy winner of the week for me - I read my ARC in... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 8th

While it was a craptastic week for the country (and a terrible week to actually do any reading), it was a GREAT week for new releases. We're officially back into new release territory, with so many exciting books coming out in January. My favorite of the week was the light, sexy Ego Trip, but I... Continue Reading →
