I began to read this book at around 2AM, seeing as I had it as an eARC and didn't want to sleep. Word of advice: if you don't want to sleep, pick up this book! I was hypnotized from the very first sentence "I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club, and I'm wondering how mermaids … Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli [Review]
Marianne's Review: Sanctuary was just the book I needed to read to get out of a massive book slump. Liz as a protagonist is a dream come true: badass black attorney in a male-dominated company.

Review: Remember Me Always wasn't at all like I expected, in a good and bad way. I thought this was going to be solely a romantically epic story, almost like the soul mate ones. The premise held that promise of heartache and enough swoon to curl your toes while also dreading the chaos that losing … Continue reading Remember Me Always by Renee Collins: Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Even though I'm a huge fan of novels and long series, sometimes you just want to dive into your feelings and read something that won't work up your fictional motors. Poetry is cathartic for … Continue reading The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson: Raw, Potent and Enlightening.
“Sex, baby, let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about all the GOOD things and the BAD things that may be. Let’s talk about Sex.” Alright you guys, I don’t like to brag but I consider myself a smut connoisseur of sorts. Sex is just about everywhere in the media but today we’re gonna … Continue reading SMUT 101 w/ Cam
I have been blessed to encounter Contemporary Romance books this year that I love, this one being a definite 5 stars at the top. Alex, Approximately was hooking from the first page, especially with the many movie references, as well as quotes at the start of every chapter. The main character, Bailey Rydell aka "Mink" … Continue reading Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett [Review]: A Cinematographic & Romantic Wonder
Considering my bad luck lately with Romance books, I was kind of dreading going into this one. That quickly changed when I realized my favorite trope being used. Eye Candy is a friends-to-lovers story mixed with an office romance that surprisingly made things even better. Jackie and Vince are both divorcees with their own jaded … Continue reading Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon: Mini Review!
I don’t consider myself a big fan of summer contemporaries simply because I live on an island where it's practically summer every single day.

If Birds Fly Back is the complete and total opposite of what I just described. … Continue reading If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak ARC Review: A Contemporary Worth Remembering.

It’s my go-to genre in music, books, and film when I’m happy, sad, angry, frustrated, nostalgic, etc. The past few months, particularly from late March until the first week of June, the political situation where I live and study has been tense. During this time, especially the last few weeks, … Continue reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo [Review] Perfect Adorable Summer Read!
