Posted February 13, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish but now it’s hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl and it’s a feature that everyone participates in so I’m going to try and participate myself and see how long it lasts. Wish me luck.

This week’s prompt is:

February 13: Love Freebie (Romances, swoons, OTPs, kisses, sexy scenes, etc.)

1. Connor and Brenna MacAllister from The Wedding (Laird’s Fiancee’s #2) by Julie Garwood: I love these guys. From Connor’s abrupt nature to Brenna’s sweet disposition, they were such a treat to read and get to know. I adored Brenna’s medallion that she made for Connor when he became her family and I loved seeing him soften in his attitude toward life and her. They were such a cute couple.

2. Adam Hartley and Corey Callaghan from The Year We Feel Down (The Ivy Years #1) by Sarina Bowen: I loved the friendship that grew and blossomed into that once in a lifetime love. Hartley drove me crazy with how long he kept homegirl that was abroad but when he shows up and makes his intentions to Corey known and how he called her Callaghan??? Loved it. Corey was fun and she was strong and I loved seeing her get her man.

3. Jake Becker and Chelsea McQuaid from Sustained (Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase: I love these two! I loved how Jake came into his own while getting to know Chelsea and her brood. I loved the man that he grew to be with them and I loved how fierce Chelsea’s love for Jake and her kids was. They were such a fun couple and seriously, one of my favorites.

4. Dean Di Laurentis and Allie Hayes from The Score (Off Campus #3) by Elle Kennedy: Another fun couple that I loved getting to know. I loved how Allie did not put up with any of Dean’s shit and I loved seeing Dean learn all about love when he realizes that Allie is all the girl he wants and needs. Their shenanigans kept me laughing and I’ll never look at a hot pink dildo without laughing and thinking of these two.

5. Gray Grayson and Ivy McKenzie from The Friend Zone (Game On #2) by Kristen Callihan: Another friends to lovers couple that I adored. To know Gray is to love him and Ivy was no slouch either. Their texts to each other were everything and I freaking adored how much love they had for each other. They’re so much love between them and I was here for it all.

6. Lincoln Mathis and Daisy Sinclair from Someone Like You (Oxford #3) by Lauren Layne: Lincoln on his own is pretty fan-freaking-tastic but Lincoln with Daisy is even more awesome. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Lincoln and Daisy and seeing them come together in love. Lauren Layne is so good at writing couple chemistry and I felt all of their chemistry. They’re so freaking cute.

7. Josh Tanner and Heather Fowler from For Better or Worse (Wedding Belles #2) by Lauren Layne: I loved seeing Josh and Heather battle wills and then fall in love with each other. The chemistry iss off the chain and the banana bread cake at the end? Hahahaha, I love it!

8. Jordan Townsende and Alexandra Lawrence from Something Wonderful (Sequels #2) by Judith McNaught: This is the first couple that I ever “met” in a romance novel. They are the reason that I am as big a reader as I am today. I love them. So stinkin’ much.

9. Nate Sawyer and Olivia Holloway from Before Jamaica Lane (On Dublin Street #3) by Samantha Young: As you can tell, I’m a very big fan of friends to lovers stories and Nate and Olivia were besties who fell in love with each other. Their story was so much fun and totally angsty at the same time and I freaking love them.

10. Hawke Snow and Sienna Lauren from Kiss of Snow (Psy-Changelings #10) by Nalini Singh: The angsty romance between Hawke and Sienna was told over the course of many books in the Psy-Changeling series and their book was such a blast. Their romance was a total blast and their relationship was super strong. I love, love, love the heck out of them.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Still on My TBR Pile

Posted February 6, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday was hosted by The Broke & the Bookish but now it’s hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl and it’s a feature that everyone participates in so I’m going to try and participate myself and see how long it lasts. Wish me luck.

This week’s prompt is:

February 6: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

This book is too easy. I have so many books that I was so looking forward to reading and then I got them and they just sat on my TBR pile for years and years. I keep meaning to read them but you know how that goes…

Anyway, here’s my list for this week’s prompt.

1. The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever (Bevelstoke #1) by Julia Quinn: I’m not sure why I haven’t read this book yet. This book made its way onto my radar before it even came out and then I purchased a paperback copy of it and then later on, an eBook and still…I haven’t read it. I read the other books in the series and loved them but this one? Nope.

2. Fire and Ice (Buchanan-Renard #7) by Julie Garwood: I’m surprised that I haven’t read this book yet because I really liked Sophie in Murder List. I have no excuse for not having read this book before now but, I haven’t.

3. Someone to Watch Over Me (Bow Street Runners #1) by Lisa Kleypas: Another book that I have no clue why I haven’t read it yet. I adore all things by Lisa KLeypas but for some reason, I keep away from this book like it’s got the plague. I’m weird. It’s Grant’s book!

4. The List by Siobhan Vivian: I was really curious about this book because the blurb completely sold me. So don’t ask me why I haven’t picked this one up yet. My niece is reading this book but me? Nope.

5. Taking a Shot (Play by Play #3) by Jaci Burton: I just read the 14th book in this series and I have had this book in my TBR pile since it came out but it’s so weird because I have picked and chosen what books to read out of this series so randomly. I haven’t read any of the middle books and even some of the beginning books. I’m interested in reading this book now but, we’ll see.

6. Motorcycle Man (Dream Man #4) by Kristen Ashley: The hero in this book is the leader of the MC in the Chaos series (a series that I love) so I’m interested in reading this book but…who knows when I’ll ever get around to reading it.

7. Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic: I wanted to read this book after reading the blurb ages ago..and I bought the book but never got around to reading it. I’m low key sad about this because I really wanted to read it…but that was so long ago.

8. This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales: I have read and loved many books by Leila Sales and I was prepared to love this one too…until I forgot about it. Gah.

9. Breaking the Rules (Pushing the Limits #1.5) by Katie McGarry: I was pretty anxious for the release of this book because I adore both Noah and Echo. I seriously have no clue why I haven’t read this one before now.

10. Unwritten (Woodlands #5) by Jen Frederick: I love this series and was anxiously waiting for Adam’s book to come out and then it came out and I never read it. I need to change that soon.

Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Book Titles

Posted October 24, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish and it’s a feature that everyone participates in so I’m going to try and participate myself and see how long it lasts. Wish me luck.

This week’s prompt is:

October 24: Top Ten Unique Book Titles

If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman: I really like the way that this series was titled…the first book, If I Stay and then if you read the book you understand the meaning behind the following book, Where She Went. I thought that whole concept was unique and I adored both books.

Results May Vary by Bethany Chase: I really liked this book and how the title fits in with the story. I thought that was done well.

November 9 by Colleen Hoover: I really liked the concept behind this book too. How significant the title for this book is in the story. This was one of the most dramatic books that made me feel every which way about it but holy cow, I liked it.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I really liked the sound of this book just by reading the title of the book. I loved the book too and well, it’s a great title.

Overruled, Sustained, Appealed and Sidebarred by Emma Chase: I really liked each of these books except for Overruled but I really liked the way that the titles of each book played well into the lawyer background.

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean: This was a fantastic historical romance that is really titled well. The Day of the Duchess fits this book and is super unique to any historical romance that I’ve read to date. MacLean does this story so well that gah…I loved it.
