I have only started reading holiday books in the last year or two, and this Christmas, I was lucky enough to score a Netgalley copy of┬áDance All Night by Alexis Daria.

Romance Review: An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole

Recently, as in December 2017, I started picking up romance books again. I wanted something fun and light and I just adore the way romance novels make me feel all gooey and warm inside. For the month of February, I'm also trying to read more black authors (if not all black authors) for the February … Continue reading Romance Review: An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole

Review: All the Rivers by Dorit Rabinyan (translated by Jessica Cohen)

Oh, this book. It was a slow, somewhat meditative read. It had love (and sex), but it was so much more to me than that. The story follows Liat and Hilmi, a young couple falling in love in New York.

It was so GOOD! It follows several princes and princesses in a realm divided into five or so … Continue reading Review: Rules of Ever After by Killian B. Brewer

Review: Marian by Ella Lyons

This is my first review of the #12DaysofDiversity readathon, which started today. I'll be sending out (hopefully) a lot of reviews during the next 12 days, so be looking for a bunch of reviews of diverse retellings. More information about the readathon can be found here. This novella is a retelling, but it's also an … Continue reading Review: Marian by Ella Lyons

Review: Alterations by Stephanie Scott

Alterations is a wonderful retelling of the classic movie Sabrina. The original movie featured Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina, the daughter of a rich family's chauffeur. Humphrey Bogart plays Linus, the more serious of the family's two sons, with William Holden playing David, the playboy of the family. Sabrina has pined for David her whole life, … Continue reading Review: Alterations by Stephanie Scott
