Review: Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Review: Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Recently, I have been in a reading slump. I start books and don’t finish them. I have trouble with finding a connection to characters and I wonder if I will ever finish a book again. I reached out to a friend and asked her to recommend a favorite book. We have similar taste in books, particularly in the types of hero/heroines we like. Her response – Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren, author of the Beautiful Series. As part of full disclosure, I have not read the Beautiful Series. Something about that series never appealed to me.

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Frequently, I find myself thanking Alethea (@frootjoos) over at Read Now, Sleep Later for introducing me to new television series.  Two of my favorites are Murdoch Mysteries from Canada and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries from Australia.  I seriously think she has everyone watching these.

Happy Book Release Day!

Happy Book Release Day!

New books are always coming out, and for the most part, I do not pre-order books.  However, there are always a few that are either next up in a series and a must have or highly anticipated and I am compelled to pre-order them.  As I think about it, I am pretty sure I have never had a day with four pre-orders.  I thought I would give everyone a sneak-peek at what I am looking forward to reading.  Happy Book Birthdays to all of the authors!!! Here are some of the books I have been eagerly looking forward to coming… Read more »
