Daughter of Empire by Lady Pamela Hicks

Daughter of Empire is a fascinating look at the life of Lady Pamela Hicks, the daughter of Lord Mountbatten, and cousin to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.  She was a bridesmaid at Queen Elizabeth II's wedding, and was present for many historical events. I picked up this book as I had just finished the first... Continue Reading →


Queso! by Lisa Fain

I LOVE QUESO. In my opinion, there's just about nothing better than a big bowl of melty creamy cheesy goodness, whether it come with chili or pico or chilis or anything of the like.  I'm the girl who asks for extra queso on my nachos, who gets it in a burrito if it's an option,...

Bonfire by Krysten Ritter

To begin with, this is not some paint-by-numbers potboiler by a celebrity with a ghost writer.  Nope, in this case, Krysten Ritter, she of Jessica Jones and Breaking Bad fame (and my personal fav, Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23)- in this case, she has written a gripping, engrossing thriller all on her own....

The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn

Julia Quinn is one of my comfort reading authors when it comes to romance. She was one of the first modern romance writers that my BFF Huma introduced me to when we started sharing book recommendations, specifically her classic Romancing Mr. Bridgerton.  So I always love seeing a new Julia Quinn book hitting the shelves. And... Continue Reading →

Fallout by Gwenda Bond

I love Lois Lane. No, I don't think you quite get me. I LOVE LOIS LANE. I'm pretty sure she imprinted on me like a baby chick when I was a kid.  Because I have always felt like my favorite superhero was the Daily Planet Reporter who gave no effs and was willing to do... Continue Reading →


Spoiler Alert: the Hero Dies by Michael Ausiello

I had a hard time writing a review of this book.  A really hard time. Because it put me through the wringer.  I cried so long and hard through the end of this book, and I was even reading it super late at night (2:30 AM) because I couldn't put it down and needed to... Continue Reading →


The Little World of Liz Climo and Lobster is the Best Medicine by Liz Climo

The Little World of Liz Climo and Lobster is the Best Medicine are the kind of book that makes me smile just thinking about.  They're a warm hug, a fuzzy blanket, the perfect glass of fizzy pop when you're parched. They make my whole soul smile. Filled with funny anthropomorphized animals, her drawings are funny,... Continue Reading →


The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

“Yes, I am certain it’s infatuation. I’ve felt it before.” Now Ash was the one who became a maelstrom of irrational emotion. That emotion being jealous anger. “Toward whom?” “Why should it matter?” “Because,” he said, “I like to know the names of the people I despise. I keep them in a little book and...
