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 […]

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 […]

Things We Left Behind by Lucy Score | Review

Do you ever read a series and find yourself constantly drawn to the secondary characters instead of the protagonists? This has been me with Sloane and Lucian in the Knockemout series by Lucy Score. I kid you not, when I went back to look at all of my highlighted sections from the first two books on my Kindle, they were literally ALL passages with interactions between Sloane and Lucian! Their tension leapt off the page through two entire books, so I was ELATED to finally have my greedy little hands on their story the day it was released on Kindle […]

Romance Mini Reviews | You Had Me At Hola and Things We Hide From the Light

I think my reading experience with You Had Me at Hola is really very much a case of it not being the right book at the right time for me. I really, truly wanted to like it. It was one of my most anticipated reads of 2020 and everything from the synopsis and cover seemed right up my alley. However, when it actually came time to read You Had Me at Hola, I just found myself wishing it wasn’t a romance. I liked Jasmine and loved her “Leading Lady Plan” to focus more on her career and less on needing […]

Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun by Elle Cosimano | Review

The Finlay Donovan series has been my first foray into the cozy mystery game, and while I haven’t read much else in the genre I can’t deny that I have a hilariously good time each time I pick up a new book in the series. Even in this third installment where I don’t feel like much happened to move the actual plot forward from where it landed at the end of book 2, Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun is probably my favorite installment yet! Following the events of book 2, Finlay is tasked by a mob boss who’s currently imprisoned […]

The Serpent and the Wings of Night (Crowns of Nyaxia #2) by Carissa Broadbent | Review

A few months ago I positively gushed about what’s possibly one of my favorite books I’ve read so far in 2023- The Serpent and the Wings of Night. I was delighted to find out that the sequel was set to release less than 2 months after I finished, so The Ashes and the Star Cursed King shot to the top of my TBR list for April (Kindle Unlimited subscription coming in clutch). While I thoroughly enjoyed the conclusion of the first duology in the Crowns of Nyaxia series (and bought physical copies to add to my personal library, which I […]

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score | Knockmeout #1

Where have Kindle Unlimited romances been all of my life? Because let me tell you, I am having the best time reading them! It seems like some are also increasingly getting more mainstream attention, including Things We Never Got Over, which was a Goodreads Awards Nominee for Best Romance in 2022. I had seen this title kicking around on social media so decided to download it when I went on my initial KU downloading spree at the beginning of 2023. I was not disappointed, as the book nearly perfectly satisfied my craving for a small town romance! Things We Never […]

In the Weeds by B.K. Borison (Lovelight #2) | Review

I swear I was the biggest hype woman for this series after I read the first book, so I’m not quite sure what happened here! Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it and found it to be well-written, but I found it to lack some of that ~small town magic~ that the first book gave in spades. After chatting with some of my bookstagram friends about this one, I think my main issues with this book come down to two things: Evie is not a small town local The story hinges on the lack of communication trope So problem […]

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus | Review

I ADORE a good historical fiction novel, and Lessons in Chemistry did not disappoint! I honestly didn’t know much about the book other than always seeing it featured on blogs and book lists last year, and seeing even my non bookish friends reading and posting about it. I decided to request it on a whim from my library and was like 128th in the hold line (lol) when I was selected for a “lucky day” copy (basically a copy with a shorter check out date that you can’t renew). I immediately jumped on downloading it to my Kindle and went […]

The Serpent and the Wings of Night (Crowns of Nyaxia #1) by Carissa Broadbent | Review

Have you ever gotten that feeling when you finish a book that you just know it’s going to make it into your top ten (or even five) of the year? That’s exactly how I felt upon finishing The Serpent and the Wings of Night, and I now have a raging book hangover thanks to it! First off, I want to address that the comp titles for this novel are ACOTAR and FB&A, and I’d also argue a dash of hunger games. And while there are similarities, I think this book does an amazing job at holding its own and creating […]
