Latest Book News & Recap – January 27 – February 3, 2018

Hi, everybody, how are you? I hope you are having a great weekend. Last week was a busy week because there has been a home renovation going on. The last three days have been exhausting yet productive and my body is now starting to feel the effect. I’m having a cold and a headache but resting is unfortunately not an option since there is a lot to do around the house (cleaning and redecorating). Moreover, my classes start on Monday so I’m doing some non-fiction reading to prepare myself mentally. I just finished an awesome non-fiction book, DEEP WORK by Cal Newport, that I loved so very much. Have you read […]

Book Review – Escape by Jay Crownover

ESCAPE by Jay Crownover Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Series: Getaway #3 (standalone) Published on: January 30, 2018 Pages: 391 POV: Dual First Point of View Source: Publisher Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Escape by Jay Crownover is the third book in the Getaway series by Jay Crownover. Jay Crownover is the author I was already familiar with since her Riveted rocked my world, but Escape is the first book I read from the Getaway series. It didn’t negatively affect my experience though since the book works as a complete standalone; however, to fully enjoy the story and the whole characters I suggest you start with the first book before jumping into this one. Escape follows the […]

Latest Book News & Recap (January 14-20, 2018)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. We are already in the middle of January. Wow, time does fly. I think Christmas and New Year celebrations were just yesterday. In the blink of an eye, we’re gonna leave January. Anyway, I will go back to school to finish my master program at the end of this month and continue my piano lessons. I’m so excited. I’m planning to start a new hobby this year too. I love learning something new every year, which is the reason I started this blog last year.

Recommend Me Books – Fighter Romance

Are you a fan of fighter heroes? Oh, I do! The fact that I love alpha males is probably not a secret anymore. Almost all of the books I read here has an alpha hero in them. What can I say? They are irresistible. It is fascinating to watch how these bad guys (boys) fall in love. I haven’t read many books with fighter heroes or heroines but I loved the ones I have read so far. I’m in the mood for more fighter romance. Please, recommend me your top favorites. If you haven’t yet, please, check out the other recommendations and recommend me your favorites: Forbidden Romance Winter Holiday […]

Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Series: Dating by Numbers #1 (standalone) Published on: January 4, 2018 Pages: 386 POV: First Point of View Source: Purchase Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon I started 2018 by reading Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn, a standalone, romantic comedy book from the author who was new to me. To say I regret why I didn’t grab Meghan Quinn’s books sooner is an understatement. She is an extraordinary storyteller with a number of remarkably sounding titles under her belt. Those who are familiar with her work might be delighted when I say she is one of the authors you need to give a chance if […]
