This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – 5 Star Review!

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – 5 Star Review!

Wow! Just … wow! I haven’t read Schwab before, and now I know what I’ve been missing. I absolutely loved this story of humanity’s worst ills come to life in the form of monsters. What Fed My Addiction: Monstrous! This book gives us a bleak (but oh so fascinating) look at the human condition. In Schwab’s fantasy world, the urban areas have been overtaken by monsters that are born out of violence. Whenever a violent act […]

My Top Ten Addictions – Let’s Discuss

My Top Ten Addictions – Let’s Discuss

Those of you who’ve been around my blog for a while know that usually, when I feature a guest post from an author on my blog (usually along with a review), it’s the author’s Top Ten Addictions (click the link if you want to see them). I like that it’s a fun, lighthearted tie-in to my blog name and that it’s a quick read. (If I’m being honest, I don’t usually take the time to read […]

Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods – Review

Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods – Review

A quick note from Nicole for those of you who are regulars around here – this is my mom’s (Gay’s) first solo review (okay, fine, I interjected a few things here and there – but, for the most part, it’s hers!). Hopefully you’ll be seeing lots more of these! To put it simply, this is a story of a girl looking for her astrological soulmate, and she’s on a deadline. Wil promised her mother before she […]

738 Days by Stacey Kade – Review

738 Days by Stacey Kade – Review

This is one of those books where it’s hard to know what to expect. On the one hand, it tackles an incredibly serious and tough subject – the emotional (and physical) scars left from an abduction and abuse. But then, it also incorporates a romance trope that we typically find in much lighter fare – the burnt-out celebrity who needs to freshen up his image by helping out a fan. Somehow Kade managed to blend […]

Is Celibacy Shaming a Thing? Let’s Discuss!

Is Celibacy Shaming a Thing? Let’s Discuss!

This is kind of a difficult topic to talk about because I honestly think my viewpoint might be contradictory to a lot of other bloggers out there – at least partially. And this might be one of those cases where I’m showing my age, making myself look old-fashioned. I’m aware that my views on sex are more conservative than a lot of other people’s and that affects my perspective on this topic. But I decided to […]
