The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams

When making my way through my monthly ARC review (where I pick a book for each publisher/rep and make sure to write an early blurb for it on Edelweiss), I came across this book, which I really laughed at. But I figured, why not give it a chance? And boy was I pleasantly surprised. Synopsis… Continue reading The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams

Favorite Graphic Novels

In Sunday's review of Mythos, I mentioned I was struggling with writing reviews lately. I don't know what's been going on with me - maybe it's the fact that I've been reading parts of so many books and haven't finished as many as I'd like, or that the independent bookstore I work at has been… Continue reading Favorite Graphic Novels

The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory

I'm a sucker for a royal romance. And given my current requirement that all fiction I read must feature Scotland in some way shape or form (and oddly enough, be an imprint of Simon & Schuster, which is probably just a coincidence...), I picked up my long forgotten ARC of The Royal Runaway one night… Continue reading The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

A book? About a mysterious bookstore with a millennial cast of characters? My response to finding out about was as follows: WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BOOK SOONER?!? And then I told my boss about it and made him buy it. Yep, I'm that kind of indie bookstore manager - I upsell to… Continue reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

A few years ago I picked this book up and thought it looked adorable and perfect for a friend. A perfect chick-lity read, a book about books, that she would love. Two years later, I found the audiobook on Overdrive I figured it was time I read it as well. Synopsis Nina Redmond is a literary… Continue reading The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares

I have been best friends with Tibby, Carmen, Lena and Bridget for more than half my life now.
