Review #325

I rated this holiday romance a 4/5 stars. I usually don’t think about characters when I’m away from the book, but I did about this one. It dig a spot into my brain. This first person narrative (all in one POV) had heavy LGTBQ+ representation throughout. I’m glad I picked this one over others inContinue reading “Review #325”

Review #324

I gave this holiday standalone romance a 3.1/5 stars. Well I kind of hated everything about the first chapter. Social media. To hashtags. To magazine covers. To trending clothes. To expensive gifts. To celebrities. To spoiled brats. To pity parties. And the author is laying it on THICK. Like it doesn’t need to be repeatedContinue reading “Review #324”

Review #322

I absolutely loved this unique contemporary romance by Ashley Poston. I gave “The Dead Romantics” a 4.9/5 stars. It was written all in one point of view, first person-past tense. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: Florence Day is a ghost writer for a best selling author. The new (hot male) editor somehow doesn’t knowContinue reading “Review #322”
