{Review+Giveaway} Groupie by @susanmdaugherty

{Review+Giveaway} Groupie by @susanmdaugherty

Groupie is the first book in the series of the same name by Susan Daugherty. Groupie is a new adult/adult rock star romance. I enjoyed Groupie. I had a few character issues that kept me from falling head over heels in love with it, but I ended up liking the story quite a bit. Groupie is rock star romance between a country music artist and his PT. This is part one in this couple’s story, so it does end things a little unfinished. Overall, Groupie was a good read. Groupie is the story of Lexie and Jack. My main issue with this story was Lexie, I am sorry to say. She irked me. I didn’t totally hate her. I actually really liked most of her genuine interactions with Jack, but she is so judgey. Judgey to the point that it felt like overkill to me. But I suppose you can also say that she is honest with her opinions of people and of groupies. I really liked Jack. I thought he… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Illuminae by @AmieKaufman & Jay Kristoff @misterkristoff

{Review+Giveaway} Illuminae by @AmieKaufman & Jay Kristoff @misterkristoff

Illuminae is the first book in the young adult series, The Illuminae Files #1 by author duo Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff. I think I am one of the last people in the world to finally jump on board and read Illuminae. Now that the paperback version of the book is coming out, and book 3 in the series is coming out later this year, I knew it was finally time to read book one. I have heard nothing but amazing things about the book, and I have heard the series being called different enough times, that I had to see for myself. And now I can confidently say…I am a huge Illuminae fan! This book is so awesome. I know it has been said a lot, but the format of this series is like nothing else I have ever read. I absolutely loved it. It has to be super difficult to write and put together because I could tell how complicated and detailed the world is. I mean the… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Quiet Love by @HelenaRacAuthor

{Review+Giveaway} Quiet Love by @HelenaRacAuthor

Quiet Love is the second book in the Chapters of Love series by Helena Rac. I had no idea that the first book was going to be part of a series (or if I did, I didn’t remember that part.) But I do remember that I absolutely loved Sweet Bliss (Which is currently on sale for 99cents!) Quiet Love totally had me swooning. I loved this friends to more story so much. I liked it even more than the first book! Quiet Love is Rose and Daniel’s story. I really really enjoyed these two characters. Rose is great and Daniel is all mine. Seriously, I loved sweet quiet Daniel. He is Quiet Love. Rose and Daniel have been best friends forever. I loved that Rose and Daniel had no airs about them. They were who they were, and they totally loved that about each other. They make great friends and a great couple. I loved how genuine their story felt. It was mature and didn’t have a whole lot of… Read more »

{Mini Review+Giveaway} Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles @GalleryBooks

{Mini Review+Giveaway} Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles @GalleryBooks

Seeking Mr. Wrong is an adult contemporary romance by Natalie Charles. This is the first book I have read by Natalie Charles, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a funny and quick read. It is about an author that is “forced” to switch from children’s books to spicy adult romance books when her publisher is bought by another publisher who publishes romance. Watching Lettie struggle with this problem, which is totally outside of her personality and wheelhouse was really amusing for me.  Not to mention hilarious for the people in her life as well. I loved seeing her family’s reaction to the whole thing. I thought her story was tons of fun. And Lettie herself is really likable and funny. I enjoyed Seeking Mr. Wrong. I don’t want to spoil too much of the plotline for this one, so you will just have to pick up the book for yourself to see. While the book didn’t totally rock my world, I did really enjoy… Read more »

{ARC Review} Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett @BennettBooks

{ARC Review} Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett @BennettBooks

Sex in the Sticks is the first book in a new series from Sawyer Bennett. If you didn’t know by now, I absolutely love Mrs. Bennett’s books. They are always well written, with excellent characters and they are always satisfying reads with an awesome romance. When I am in the mood for a go to contemporary romance author, Sawyer Bennett is pretty high up my list on authors I turn to. Sex in the Sticks is the first book in the Love Hurts series. I loved this book. I loved the Alaskan setting. I want to see more small town romances set in Alaska. Sex in the Sticks is the story of Val and Logan. Val is more than a little self centered, and was maybe a little conceited for my tastes, but I liked that she was who she was. She didn’t put on airs around anyone. She was just herself. Take her or leave her. Ultimately, I liked her. I liked her even more once Logan was in… Read more »

Book Briefs Book Sale is coming up!

Book Briefs Book Sale is coming up!

It is finally almost time for my big book sale! It has taken me longer than I originally expected to  organize and list all of the books for the sale. The good news for that is, I have picked even more books to include in the sale. I am hoping for the sale to be live on my blog – Friday May 12th I have a TON of very new hardcovers, paperbacks and mass paperbacks . I also have some older books(including some very large series that have been beloved from my childhood like Sabrina the teenage witch, full house, nancy drew, etc.)   Most of the books are young adult, but some of them are adult, middle grade, and romance. I have a huge range of genres. Books will be first come first serve. I will be taking email orders in the order I receive them. I am currently thinking of a price breakdown as follows: *any of the prices may change* Newer(2015-2017 release date) hardcovers: $4 Older Hardcovers… Read more »
