Review: "Forever Yours" by Judy Corry

I don't know what it is, but there's something about Judy Corry's writing that makes me do stupid things ... like staying up way past my bedtime to read her books. I've now read most of her books, and I think each one has been read between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. Normally, I'm really good about putting books down and getting my sleep, but, without exception, her books call to me as I'm getting ready for bed, and then I can't put the book down until it's finished ... which is why I was VERY groggy at work yesterday. I pulled Forever Yours up on my Kindle at 10:15 ... and finished it at 12:30. Thank goodness I'm a quick reader, or it would have been much later!

Review: "Evermore" by Jody Hedlund

I'm so excited that Jody Hedlund has written another medieval series! After releasing the prequel novella for The Lost Princesses series earlier this month, she's back with book one, Evermore, and it's so good!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Would Like Physical Copies of

Hello again, TTT friends! It's been a while since I've been around these parts. Today's topic was too good to pass up, though: Books I'd Like to Have in My Personal Library. I'm taking this to mean books I want physical copies of ... because for all of the convenience of an ebook, there's nothing like having a physical copy to hold, read, and use in #bookstagram photos!

Review: "State of Lies" by Siri Mitchell

A few years ago, I read a couple of Siri Mitchell's historical novels. I enjoyed them, but I wasn't dying to get my hands on more of her books. But then I heard about State of Lies—written in a completely different genre with a "book blurb" that caught my eye—and I decided to give it a chance.

Review: "A Glitter of Gold" by Liz Johnson

Over the past few years, Liz Johnson has quietly become one of my favorite romance writers. I say "quietly" because her name is not one that quickly jumps to mind when thinking of my favorite writers, but every time I pick up one of her books, I. Love. It.

Review: "Stars of Alabama" by Sean Dietrich

Do you ever pick up a book by an author you've never read before and wonder how on earth you'd missed the author up to that point? Yeah, that's me right now. I had never even heard of Sean Dietrich, a.k.a. Sean of the South, before I picked up Stars of Alabama. And now I want to go back and read everything he's ever written!

Review: "Always" by Jody Hedlund

A few years ago, Jody Hedlund, one of my favorite historical romance writers, penned a medieval YA series that I absolutely loved. (See my reviews of the books in that series here.) Though Hedlund has wrapped up that series, she isn't finished writing medieval YA; Always is the opening novella in her upcoming The Lost Princesses series!

Review: "Daughters of Northern Shores" by Joanne Bischof

There's just something about a Joanne Bischof book ... Daughters of Northern Shores is the third book written by Bischof that I've read, and it's the third of her books that I'm giving a 5-star rating to!

Review: "Love and Other Mistakes" by Jessica Kate

I just love the trend of illustrated covers for romance novels! As soon as I saw the cover of Love and Other Mistakes, I added it to my TBR ... doesn't it look so fun?

Review: "One of the Girls" by Robin Daniels

As you surely know by now, clean, cheesy YA romances are my jam ... even though I'm now technically old enough to be the mother of all of the characters. (Seriously, how did that happen???)

I'd never read anything by Robin Daniels before picking up this book, but it was offered for review in one of my clean romance groups, so I took a chance ...

July Wrap-Up

How is it August? We're less than two weeks away from the beginning of school! I'm just not going to think about that little tidbit today, OK?

My July reading was ... not great. After reading so much in June, I hit a massive reading slump in July. I wanted to read, but nothing that I picked up resonated with me. Often, I don't have the luxury of indulging a slump, as I have certain books that have to be reviewed on certain days. But, for whatever reason, July didn't have many deadlines, so when I wasn't feeling a book, I just stopped reading.

Review: "Cross My Heart" by Robin Lee Hatcher

Over the past few years, Robin Lee Hatcher has become one of my go-to authors for contemporary inspirational romance. Her well-drawn characters and intriguing stories always draw me in. Cross My Heart, her latest release, is no different.
