When Harry Met Molly by Kieran Kramer {Amanda’s Review}

When Harry Met Molly by Kieran Kramer {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 1 December, 2014 by Amanda / 8 Comments

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 […]

More surprising for old people fornicating. Thoughts on Surprising Lord Jack Y’all, this is the old people fornicating series. Not surprising, considering that, despite being about the Duchess of Love’s boys, the series title is the Duchess of Love herself. While there’s less fornicating in book 2, it’s hinted at enough to make me think mom […]

Seducing Mr. Knightly by Maya Rodale {Amanda’s Review}

Rodale had me snorting with laughter. Thoughts on Seducing Mr. Knightly Ever since I stopped caring about romance series order, I manage to pick up the last in the series. How does that work? Even so, I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything important, which is, actually, quite an achievement. So. I heard about […]

Star Crossed Seduction by Jenny Brown {Amanda’s DNF Review}

Posted 14 November, 2014 by Amanda / 4 Comments

Eyebrow-raising quotes are just the beginning. Thoughts on Star Crossed Seduction “Making love with him would be like embracing an otter.” That was the point I started tweeting eyebrow-raising quotes on Twitter, not when I stopped reading. That didn’t come until page 276. It was a decision I made not based on anything that had happened […]

Bedding Lord Ned by Sally MacKenzie {Amanda’s Review}

I wanted more Ned and Ellie. Thoughts on Bedding Lord Ned This book made me feel like a crotchety old woman yelling, “Get off my lawn, you little cretins!” Except instead of kids on my lawn, it’s old people fornicating in my book. (Pause a second. I have no issue with old people having sex. Sometimes […]

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas {Amanda’s Review}

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 24 October, 2014 by Amanda / 8 Comments

Immediately wanted a Veronica Mars binge. Thoughts on The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line There’s no doubt in my mind The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line—and its following books, since it promises to be a series—is written for Veronica Mars fans, and only for Veronica Mars fans. It’s so reminiscent of the TV show (and movie) that you can’t help […]

When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 20 October, 2014 by Amanda / 6 Comments

A darker Bridgerton novel—still good. Thoughts on When He Was Wicked When He Was Wicked lacks the lighthearted fun of other Julia Quinn novels, but at the same time, it’s to be expected. This is the story of Francesca, how she’s widowed, and how she falls back in love. It deserves a certain amount of gravity, […]

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 […]
