My Favorite Moments in Historical Romance

This was more difficult than I anticipated. There aren’t a lot of them. They’re all Julia Quinn. I’m not sorry for it. Honestly, some of the best parts of historical romance involve the characters getting their HEA… and that’s too spoilery for me. So you get these instead! 1. Bridgerton antics from the Bridgerton series by Julia […]

So if you’ve been paying attention to my posts over the past month, some of these probably won’t surprise you. 1. Penelope and Colin from Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn BECAUSE. THAT’S WHY. You really should have expected this choice by now. “In three days,” he continued, “I will be your husband. I will […]

There’s a definite pattern in my favorite histrom heroines, but I shan’t apologize for it. 1. Penelope Featherington from Romancing […]

These best of the best. The books my “does not reread” self could reread (and in some cases, already has) forever. Though the list is not in any particular order. For the sake of simplicity, I’m reposting from reviews. Also, I’m lazy. 1. Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn from my review: So many of you […]

Confess by Colleen Hoover {Beth’s Review}

Posted 8 April, 2015 by Beth / 3 Comments

I liked it but didn’t love. Thoughts on Confess Something about this book just didn’t pull me the way Colleen Hoover’s books usually do. I didn’t feel invested in it like I did her previous books.
