Okay, so I’m reviewing this one super early (it comes out in June!) because a) I think a review from someone who has done science is maybe something that the publisher should read (not that my reviews are that well known or anything, but at least it will be out there) and b) my semi-hiatus is coming up and I don’t want this one to get lost. So! Chemistry Lessons was problematic. The writing was great, the characters were engaging, but the entire premise was flawed. And while I feel like the intent of the author (not that intent matters, necessarily) was to give YA readers a sciencey MC to look up to – THIS IS NOT THAT. Young girls who want to do science CANNOT do the things that Maya does in this book. Please PLEASE read this whole review so you can understand why (I get into it in the Dislikes/Problematic Content section of the review.)Read More »
I’m so happy that this was the first series I attempted to tackle finishing this year! These books are stellar and sexy and fun and HURRAY I just love romance. The Day of the Duchess is the third and final book in the Scandal and Scoundrel series, and it went out with a bang.Read More »
One day, out of the blue, I decided that I wanted to try listening to a romance on audiobook. I recently got a library card (yippee!) and was able to track down this series in audio, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve been spending long hours out on the trails surrounding my apartment with the dogs, and Lily and Alec were the first pair to help me pass the time this year. *swoon*Read More »
I am so excited to be a part of the review tour for Next Year in Havana, by Chanel Cleeton! I meant to post this earlier in the day, but the day got a little away from me. This book is so beautiful, and I feel privileged to have received an early copy to read and review! Don’t forget to check out the giveaway at the end of the post!
This book shattered me. But then it put me back together.
There is something about Ashley Herring Blake’s writing that always hits me where I need it to. I always seem to pick up her books at exactly the right time. This one was no exception. Because, without going into it, this book hit really close to home.Read More »
