Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry – Review & Giveaway

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry – Review & Giveaway

When I saw that another book was coming out in McGarry’s Thunder Road Series, I was so excited. This series is incredibly unique because of the biker culture – it’s hard not to be fascinated, even by the parts of the lifestyle that make me raise my eyebrows a little. This installment focused on Razor (who we met in the last book) and Breanna, one of his fellow classmates. Razor is struggling to trust the […]

Siren’s Song by Mary Weber – Review

Siren’s Song by Mary Weber – Review

I absolutely adored the first two books in this series, so I was eager to dive into this final installment. Unfortunately, I have to confess that my experience reading this one was marred a bit by the simple fact that I couldn’t remember enough of what had happened in the first two books and I therefore struggled with connecting to the story – both the high stakes and the secondary characters. Still, by the end, […]

Sometimes You Just Need to Disappear for a Little While

Sometimes You Just Need to Disappear for a Little While

It’s been a really long time since I allowed a week to go by on my blog with just two posts (not including my Sunday Post). It feels … odd … but also liberating. Sometimes I think we put way too much pressure on ourselves as bloggers, and I realized that’s what I’ve been doing lately. I have to trust that I can go a week without posting much and the blog won’t implode. My […]

Threats of Sky and Sea and Riot of Storm and Smoke by Jennifer Ellision – Audiobook Reviews

Threats of Sky and Sea and Riot of Storm and Smoke by Jennifer Ellision – Audiobook Reviews

Audiobooks are relatively new territory for me. In the past, the only audiobooks I listened to were the books in the Wheel of Time Series, which I was trying to finally finish after years of putting it off. Those were each 30-40 hours long!! I enjoyed them, but behemoth books make for equally behemoth audiobooks. I thought I’d try out a some more “normal” audiobooks – the type that I could listen to while doing […]

How Much Do You Read? Let’s Discuss!

How Much Do You Read? Let’s Discuss!

I consider myself an avid reader. I’ve always read a lot, but when I first started blogging, my reading life exploded – I read over 200 books per year for those first couple of years. I thought this was A LOT. Then I saw some other bloggers who read over 300 books a year and I was astounded. I can often read a book in a day, but I certainly don’t do it every day. […]

Painting Rain by Annette K. Larsen – Review & $50 Giveaway

Painting Rain by Annette K. Larsen – Review & $50 Giveaway

Painting Rain is a sweet story about a woman coming to understand herself and learning to stand on her own two feet. Princess Lorraina was introduced in the first three books in this series, but each of the books can be read as a standalone – I missed book three, and while it was referenced a couple of times, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything that was important to the current story. However, […]
