Neon Gods & Electric Idol by Katee Robert | Dark Olympus #1-2

I love a good urban fantasy, though it feels like they are fewer and farther between these days. When I came across Neon Gods by Katee Roberts I was surprised I hadn’t seen it before. I love a good Greek pantheon story, and the twist of most of the seats being elected was super interesting! So thanks to my trusty library, I settled in during vacation to this futuristic vision of Olympus. The series starts off with the story of Hades and Persephone (because of course). Persephone is the daughter of Demeter and has three other sisters (also themed after […]

The Honeymoon Crasher by Christina Lauren | Review

This was cute! I hadn’t listened to an audiobook in a looong time prior to this, but I was curious about it and thought I heard it was only available via audio (?) and when Spotify Premium informed me that I had access to audiobooks through my subscription, I thought why not? And proceeded to put it on during a day of catching up on chores around the house. And it was so good! I think this was my first audiobook with a full cast and it made SUCH a difference (normally I feel sort of second-hand cringe when a […]

Bride by Ali Hazelwood | ARC Review

When I heard Ali Hazelwood was dipping her toe into romantasy/paranormal romance, I was excited but stoked! I adore all of her STEM romances and since enemies to lovers is my favorite trope ever in romance novels, Bride quickly shot to the top of my list of most anticipated reads of 2024. I was beyond thrilled when I was reached out to by the publisher about an ARC and joining the blog tour, and am happy to say that Bride keeps the trademark Hazelwood wit, humor and writing style with the fun twist of a paranormal, urban fantasy setting (that […]

February 2024 TBR

I am truly shooketh that I read every single book on my January TBR (that never happens!!) and I’m hoping I can keep that energy going throughout 2024. However, I’m not feeling too confident for February since my top priority is House of Flame and Shadow and it’s huge, so worried it might slow down my reading, especially with February being a short month! KU: Caught Up | I read The Right Move in January and adored it, and want to continue with the next book in the series while the last one is still very fresh in my mind. […]

Love, Me by Jessica Saunders | ARC Review

*Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for providing an ARC for review!* While admittedly (in my opinion) more “women’s fiction” than romance, I was fully captivated by this debut novel by Jessica Saunders that explores the forbidden “what if” you ran into your high school ex fantasy. However, the twist here is what if your high school ex was now a highly popular celebrity? I live for this kind of drama in my stories so this one was RIGHT up my alley. The story follows Rachel, a successful lawyer, mother of two, seemingly happily married woman who is leading […]

January 2024 TBR + TBR Structure for the Year

I always feel invigorated at the start of a new year to refresh my reading plans and how I track my reading habits, and this year I’m excited to revamp the way I structure my TBR. I currently have a lot of sources where I am accessing books (library, KU, Spotify, my own collection, etc) and I want to make sure I am leveraging all of these sources as much as possible. Therefore, I’ve decided to split my TBR each month into 6 sources: Library books (can be e-books or audio) Kindle Unlimited My own physical TBR Audio (want to […]

Best Books of 2023

Can you believe we are at the end of 2023? *Cue meme about me still trying to process 2019* I decided to only do a roundup of my top 5 books this year since I only read ~54 books. Over the past few years (since about 2021, really) I’ve been a lot less focused on keeping up with new releases and becoming more of a mood reader. I’ve also really moved on from most YA into Romance. I’m embracing these changes and trying not to force a fit when it comes to my reading taste and TBR. My below top […]

One Year of Kindle Unlimited

Last January, I posted about how I was going to try out KU for the first time and check back in on how I was enjoying it/using it. Well, after 12 months of having KU, I’m happy to say that I am really enjoying it! KU Stats This year I read 18 KU books with an average rating of 3.4 stars. 15 of the books were Romance while the other 3 were Romantasy (s0 basically romance, lol) 2 out of my top 5 books of 2023 are KU reads I didn’t pay full price (11.99) for most months; I joined […]

Happy Place by Emily Henry | Review

This was an interesting one for me. I thought I’d really enjoy it (second chance romance is a sub-genre I’m interested in exploring more) and I remember enjoying The People We Meet On Vacation quite a bit. However, this story was sort of…a downer? Protagonist Harriet arrives at her annual summer trip at her wealthy friend Sabrina’s family’s summer house in Maine (because of course) and immediately has a secret to hide- her fiance, Wyn, broke up with her months ago but she hasn’t told her friends since she doesn’t want to rock the boat and dissolve their mutual friend […]
