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

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 […]

Not completely believable, but still awesome. Thoughts on The Making of a Gentleman Sooooo. Let me just begin by saying that I liked this book. We’ll get that out of the way right now. I think book 1 was probably my favorite, and that’s likely because of some… aspects that were relatively unbelievable in THIS book. […]

Even better than the first book. Thoughts on Tempting Fate I’m rather glad I went in order here—from book 1 to book 2—because there’s setup between Whit and Mirabelle that I would’ve missed. And that would have made their romance a little less sweet than it really is. Is there anything better than a haters-to-lovers story? […]

I borrowed the next book immediately. Thoughts on As Luck Would Have It I snagged McAlistair’s Fortune, book three in the series, from the library first, but when I was finished, I requested As Luck Would Have It. And when I finished that book, well, I went and borrowed the second book. A bit of historomance crack, […]

The Bridgertons are my favorite family. Thoughts on The Duke and I *flails all over you until it’s awkward* Hi. HI. I love Julia Quinn. Many talk about how much they love the Bridgertons, but I didn’t start my Julia Quinn reads with this series, which is often suggested you do. (I don’t always follow suggestions.) Even so, words cannot […]

I MUST HAVE MOAR BRIDGERTONS NOW. Thoughts on It’s in His Kiss I finally finally said, “Screw waiting to read this in order” and grabbed It’s in His Kiss (the only Bridgertons novel my library branch had on the shelves). So yeah, this is #7. But it doesn’t matter because it was amazing. AMAZING. The more Julia Quinn […]
