We’re back! I read some more books in February, and since I posted my TBR for the month in January, let’s see if I stuck to it!Read More →

This book is a must-read.  Let me tell you why. I’ve included some tiny spoilers, to help convince you but mostly this is a spoiler-free review. Trust me, this book needs to move to the very top of your to be read pile – or shelf – no judging hereRead More →

I love reading, and the genre that draws me in the most is always romance. I get that there is a very negative stigma placed on romance books, from the authors who write them, to the people who read them. The books are often called things like “Mommy porn,” whichRead More →

Marie Rutkoski’s The Midnight Lie IS the next best queer book you need in your life and that’s the unfiltered tea of it all. Talking about tea and all the truths, fantasy has been lacking when it comes to queer relationships, friendships, and everything far and few in between. InRead More →

“He’s here.  The Mister!” That’s right people, The Mister is coming.  It was just announced by Variety that EL James, author of the famous Fifty Shades trilogy, has another book heading to the big screen.  The Mister, which was released last spring, has been picked up once again by UniversalRead More →

I’m not going to come in here saying this was a great book that I enjoyed, because that’s not what we do here. Instead, we’re going to stay honest in this book review, and everyone is going to deal with me griping about how terrible this was. But first, aRead More →

When it comes to reading, if you’re anything like me, you like variety.  I know sometimes we all have our moments of being unsure of what to read next.  I find that reading books based on what’s happening in a certain month can give you inspiration.  For example, if it’sRead More →

Friends and Fangirls, I am a big fan of Romance books, but I never read them. They tend to be too quick of reads for me to want to spend money on them, so my cheap ass says nah. But when my friend Sam offered to loan me a bigRead More →

Maybe I am missing something, but if I am – I hope someone will explain to me what I am missing. Why are all these books now a days about someones classmate dying? Or some student dying? I am just confused. YouTube superstar Zoe Sugg is writing another fiction seriesRead More →

Hey there, Fangirls! I’ve tasked myself with the seemingly impossible goal of reading all of the books I own (that haven’t been read yet) this year. Since that’s a wild task, and not all the books I read can be reviewed, I figured we’d do a bit of a monthlyRead More →

You know we love a good book. We also love K-Pop so we were very excited when former Girls Generation star, Jessica Jung’s, debut novel Shine was announced. It’s the first book in a duology. The cover for the book was released and it is a beauty. What would youRead More →
