The Only Option by Megan Derr

What a sweet little book! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, partly because the cover and the series name makes it look like a much darker book than it actually is. It looks like it’s full of drama and depressing things and angst, but it’s almost completely the opposite. I mean, there’s still a little angst, but it’s the good kind, the delicious kind that makes the sweet goop parts that much Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 17

Hello, happy Sunday, hope you’re doing okay, what sort of Pokemon have you caught, etc. I’m in a teeny reading slump at the moment, but I’ve just loaded a bunch of Hollis Shiloh books onto my Kindle so I’m hoping they’ll help me get through the bleh. Meanwhile, here’s what I read this week: I reread Carry the Ocean by Heidi Cullinan (first read back in March), mainly because I’ve been trying to indulge in Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 12

I mean, eventually I’ll get back on schedule with these. For now, here’s what I read for the week of February 14-20, 2016. Dreamspinner had a sale on three Kim Fielding books over the weekend, and I couldn’t resist picking them up. I immediately read Astounding! , a m/m romance between a scifi managzine editor and an alien. Alien!hero is stranded on Earth after coming back in the 1950s to observe humankind. All he wants Read More …

Tournament of Losers by Megan Derr

Previous attempts at Megan Derr’s older books have been somewhat hit-or-miss, but the summary for Tournament of Losers sounded like something right up my alley, so I decided to give it a go. And that was an EXCELLENT DECISION, y’all! Tournament of Losers is the BEST Megan Derr book I’ve read yet! I think it’s a combo of increased writing skills + many tropes I adore + completely adorable characters + wonderful worldbuilding. One of Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 10

I’ve been trying to get this post up for five days now and it’s still giving me problems. Bleh. But at least I’ve managed to get SOMETHING up this week! So my reading for this week didn’t start off that great. I thought a short story would cleanse my palate between books, so I tried The Sacrificial Knight by Kestrel Drake , a fantasy m/m romance with dragons! And knights! And, like, way too much Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 9

Happy Sunday! School’s back in session but I’m having a hard time getting back into “work” mode. Especially since I’ve been sick all last week, and all I want to do is sleep and read books. Bleh. Continuing onward from last week’s Beings in Love binge, I finished up Little Wolf by R. Cooper on Sunday. More werewolves, yay! This time the couple is a heroic sheriff and an on-the-run, sassy werewolf with self-confidence issues Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 1

Hello, hello! It’s hot, the main power break for our house died two days ago and we’ve been dealing with that, I’m super busy with school and I haven’t got a ton of blogging mojo to spare. But I DO want to blog! About books! Books I read this week between doing homework, group meetins, and reorganizing the collection at work (more on that in a later post). Books read Tbh, not the BEST week Read More …

Bound by Megan Derr

Scribd popped this up in my recommended reads (pre-romance purge) and I added it to my TBR mostly because a) the cover is pretty and b) stories about princes and intrigue and soldiers and whatnot are fun! And yeah, Bound turned out to be a pretty fun book. Its best feature is its characters, who are full of emotional depth and heartbreak, aka my siren song. They’re also fun because they have such great personalities, Read More …
