Running Wild by K.A. Tucker (Wild #3)

I cannot even begin to explain to you how much I love this series, this setting, this world. The Simple Wild duology (+novella) is one of my FAVORITE all time contemporary/romance series, and one that I had to buy physical copies of for my home library after digitally borrowing for my library (not something I do that often these days, as the past few years I’ve shifted more toward focusing on e-books). When I found out K.A. Tucker was returning to her fictional Alaskan world to focus on Marie of all characters (IYKYK) I couldn’t help but anticipate it was […]

Welcome Home, Meeko!

When I tell you that 2022 has been a RIDE so far, I’m not kidding, and the first 10 days were perhaps the craziest of all. Max and I keep joking that we can’t wait to be back in *precedented* times, because ever since we got married in 2019 it’s been one major life event and/or global disaster after another. However, it seems like a boring year just isn’t in the cards for us, as we kicked off 2022 with adopting a new cat. Meet Meeko! Our adoption story of Meeko is sort of wild. We lost both of our […]

Made in Manhattan by Lauren Layne | ARC Review

I’ll admit, the cute cover of this novel was what drew me to it on NetGalley.

I was pleased to discover that Made in Manhattan is a super cute, fun romance that was honestly just what I needed after struggling with an urban fantasy book that I eventually DNF’d. Made in Manhattan follows […]

As Good as Dead (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #3) by Holly Jackson | Review

Whoa. Whoawhoawhoawhoawhoa. Just when I think Holly Jackson can’t build upon her previous mysteries BAM she gets me with a twist so unexpected that I’m left reeling. I have a lot of whiplash from this book, the third and (likely) final installment in the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series, and it went in a direction I was NOT expecting. I’ll admit, I considered DNF-ing this one initially, because the beginning is super slow. Pip is obviously dealing with PTSD (as she was after the first book, however it’s amped up a LOT after what she went through in the […]
