Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas {Amanda’s Review}

May have eye rolled for this. Thoughts on Seduce Me at Sunrise I seem to be a weird spot in my reading, where I need the break from historical romances, yet I find it impossible to drag myself away from all the glittering bounty of baubles and balls. Seduce Me at Sunrise has a premise I’m slowly […]

A hauntingly compelling wartime historical fiction My Thoughts The concept of Kate Atkinson’s novel was intriguing to me from the first: “During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath. During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives […]

Experienced weird reading deja vu feeling. Thoughts on Secrets of a Summer Night My “thrown back to the library gods” shelf was created for books like Secrets of a Summer Night. Not because I didn’t finish it — I did finish. No, because I spent a good chunk of the book experiencing reading deja vu. Because […]

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 […]

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 […]
