Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson

Happy Monday, Bookworms! You know what my favorite thing is? No? I don’t really know either, I have so many favorite things. One of the things I do happen to love, though, is when I pick up a book by an author I’ve not read before and upon finishing it want to add said author’s entire back list to my TBR pile. Loving new-to-me authors is a blessing and a… Read more »

Tell The Wolves I'm Home. No, Seriously. Tell Them.

Tell The Wolves I'm Home. No, Seriously. Tell Them.

It makes me sad. It makes… Read more »

The Tough Stuff: Top Ten Tuesday

Hola Bookworms, Today is another Tuesday, and another GLORIOUS list, the topic of which was provided by The Broke and The Bookish. Today’s topic is to list out books that deal with difficult subject matter, and the ones I’m choosing are all kind of a downer. That doesn’t mean they aren’t BRILLIANT books, because they are. It just means that they’re emotionally draining, so, you know, don’t read them all… Read more »
