Naked in Death by JD Robb {Beth’s Review}

Posted 25 February, 2015 by Beth / 1 Comment

Somewhat disappointing but will continue series Thoughts on Naked in Death I went into this book knowing that there would be A) romance, B) futuristic things and C) romance. I knew nothing else about it. Although I did like it, I was a little disappointed. I’m not sure what actually disappointed me though, and I’m sure, […]

Married by Morning by Lisa Kleypas {Amanda’s Review}

Love Leo loving like a madman. Thoughts on Married by Morning Leo loves like a madman, and that’s a big part of why I liked Married by Morning so much. The relationship between Leo and Catherine built over a couple books, and Lisa Kleypas delivered. Huzzah! But it really is Leo who makes this story for […]

Delightfully unbelievable, in a lovely way. Thoughts on When Harry Met Molly So here’s the deal: I was prowling the shelves at the library when I picked up one of the books in this series, read the back, and instantly knew I had to read this series. Because the synopsis made a play on the lyrics […]

*sobs that Celaena’s story isn’t over* Thoughts on Crown of Midnight Crown of Midnight is the kind of book that makes me realize how much my historical romance bender has affected my reading preferences. It’s not that I prefer a heavy focus on the romance — I rather like (and it makes me laugh a little […]

This can’t be the Bridgertons end!* (*I know of the 2nd epilogues**) (**Because I know that’s your question.) Thoughts on On the Way to the Wedding I’m conflicted about On the Way to the Wedding. Because that synopsis—nothing about it says “Amanda will like this book!” And it’s true: there did come a point where I […]

Will I become a Kleypas fan? Thoughts on Scandal in Spring I have a confession to make. I’m afraid if I hold it in anymore, I’ll swoon, and every historical romance readers knows, no one likes a swooner. When I’m finished you are permitted, of course, to give me the cut direct. I’m not sure I […]

Swept Away by a Kiss by Katharine Ashe {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 15 September, 2014 by Amanda / 6 Comments

Needs more character motivation for me. Thoughts on Swept Away by a Kiss Back in May, I read a book called Wired for Story. It changed how I read (and write) stories. What it talks about is ultimately what I find Katharine Ashe’s books to be lacking: a deeper understanding of character motivation. The reason […]
