Weekly reading, vol. 11

Totally forgot to post this on Sunday, whoops! My first book for this week was Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper , a contemporary romance starring a transgender PoC protag with a death metal band and a wannabe artist with a history of bad boyfriends. It’s got super hot sexytimes and a slow-burn emotional connection, and you can read it for free! I very much enjoyed it, despite how prickly all the characters were. 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.

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. 8

Hello, happy Sunday! I’m sick or something and my throat hurts and I have no energy and it stinks. But I have a bunch of mini-reviews for the 11 books I read this week! Still heavy into m/m romances, too, btw. I remember seeing a few reviews of Little White Duck by Na Liu back when it first came out, so I snagged it when I spotted it on the shelf at one of my Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 7

Happy Sunday, everyone! I had a very good week of reading. First up, I read a freebie that’s been on my TBR since October 2015. Learning to Feel by N.R. Walker is a (Twilight!) fanfic-turned-pro story about an emotionally repressed doctor meeting an artist and falling in love! And it’s kind of…iffy. See, I like the idea, but I didn’t like the narrative style, and some of the word choices kept throwing me off.1 However, Read More …
