Review: Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Review: Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Fans of historical romance let out a collective squee when it was announced that Julia Queen would be returning to the world of the Bridgertons with a new series. I fell in love with the Bridgertons several years ago when I dipped my toes back into the historical romance genre. I was immediately captured by this unconventional family. Julia Quinn is back with a new book about the Bridgertons and a new family, the Rokesbys. As far as I can tell (and I haven’t done a ton of research) this series happens before the original Bridgertons series and focuses and an earlier generation… Read more »

Trailer: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Trailer: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

The official trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was just released. The trailer definitely has that Tim Burton flavor of the strange and wonderful. While the beginning scene with the entrance to Miss Peregrine’s world is quite different than what I recall from the book, it definitely makes an impression.  Who else will be seeing this when it hits theaters this September?

Review: Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren

Review: Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren

Thank you, Christina Lauren, for this sweet and sexy little story about Will and Hanna, one of my favorite couples from the Beautiful Bastard series. While I really do adore everyone in the series, Will and Hanna hold a special place in my heart. There was just something about their story and relationship that I fell in love from the start and I was so, so happy to hear that the author team were planning on writing a novella featuring the two… Read more »

Feburary Wrap-Up

Feburary Wrap-Up

Hello! February truly is a short month. Even with the extra leap day this year, February has just flown by. Sorry for the lack of posts in the last couple of weeks. Life has been a little crazy. I got in a pretty big car accident (if you recall I was in one last year as well) and now I’ve caught something like bronchitis. I lost my voice for 3 days or so, which was really strange as I have never lost my voice before. Amidst all of this, I lost a bit of my reading mojo. Mostly I was… Read more »

Review: The Sweetest Scoundrel by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: The Sweetest Scoundrel by Elizabeth Hoyt

Eve Dinwoody is a proper lady. Demure, polite, and all business when it comes to protecting her brother’s investment at Harte’s Folly, she has no patience for the sinfully handsome and sensual Asa Makepeace (aka Mr. Harte). Dubious of Harte’s commitment to the reconstruction of the pleasure garden after a fire, Eve threatens to cut Asa’s purse strings unless he can show progress on the garden. To keep an even closer eye on things, Eve decides to take over the accounting for the project, a bigger task than she’d anticipated. Unfortunately that puts her right into the path of the rough and bawdy garden owner. However, Eve soon finds that Asa’s temper and brute strength are just one side of him…Read more >>

Stacked (154)

Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. Happy Monday, all! I hope you all had an amazing weekend. The weather report was right for once and it actually rained here in SoCal yesterday. It was quite a good rain, too, and went on for most of the day. I used that as an excuse to be extremely lazy and stayed in for the majority of the day. I got a lot of reading in and managed to finish 1 1/2 books, which was soooo nice. This week’s books are… Read more »

Favorite Films of 2015

Favorite Films of 2015

Hello there. Sorry for the last of posts this week. I totally meant to blog but, somehow, the week got away from me and now it’s Friday. I know it’s a bit late for a best of 2015 list (as it’s almost February) but I had this list made up a while ago and forgot to post it. I figured I would share it with all of you here just for fun. This wasn’t a great film year for me. I know there were lots of good movies released but many of them just didn’t interest and so I stuck… Read more »
