Audio Review | We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories by Gabrielle Union

We’re Going To Need More Wine: Stories by Gabrielle Union was my first read for 2018 and I absolutely loved it. I have no idea how to properly review this so here’s a list of things I liked and what I didn’t like. What I liked: I loved how personal the narration felt. Gabrielle is the narrator and I felt like one of her friends whom she was having a conversation with. This made me that more invested in her stories. I loved how opened she was. She wasn’t afraid […]

MyTBRList Audio Review | Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older

Shadowshaper was the book that had the most votes this month and I was actually pretty excited to dive in. I’ve seen nothing but good things about this book on Twitter so I really hoped I would enjoy it. (Spoiler alert: I DID). I decided to listen to the audiobook for Shadowshaper because I’ve realized that I tend to like any type of fantasy on audiobook vs. reading. And I honestly loved the audiobook. The narrator Anika Noni Rose was absolutely amazing. I felt like she brought the story to […]

Review Tour + Giveaway | Carry Me Home by Jessica Therrien

Carry Me Home was a book I knew I wanted to review, the synopsis had me intrigued and I was ready to dive in. Even though the synopsis mentions that the story is told in three point of views. Multiple point of views are some of my favorite books to read but it seems like it really works or it doesn’t. For Carry Me Home, I was actually surprised to see the Mother had a point of view. That is something I haven’t read before and I actually liked it. […]

A Bit Of A Disappointment | Cinderella by Chloe Perkins

I’m not entirely sure how I discovered that Chloe Perkins had written the fairy tales with a twist. But I knew I couldn’t wait to read these to the little ones. When I saw the library had Cinderella and Snow White, I immediately put them on hold at the library. The illustrations in Cinderella are absolutely beautiful. They are colorful and include such a beautiful images of the Mexican culture; I couldn’t wait to read this story with a twist. A story that my girls would relate to. The problem […]

Release Day Blitz | Take The Lead by Alexis Daria

Take The Lead is Alexis Daria’s debut novel and a pretty good debut at that. Take the Lead is centered around Gina and Stone who are competing on a reality TV competition similar to Dancing with the Stars. This is the second book that I’ve read that has dealt with reality TV, the other one is Kissed by Reality by Carrie Aarons but that is more of a bachelor style book. One of my favorite things about Take The Lead is that I felt like I was watching the show […]

Review | Just For Now by Abbi ..

Review | Just For Now by Abbi Glines

Just For Now is the fourth book in the Sea Breeze series. This one is about Amanda and Preston. Both characters have been introduced in previous Sea Breeze stories but this time they take center stage. Just For Now is much more mature then the previous Sea Breeze novels. I also feel like this one really pushed into the new adult genre. It was more explicit, it dealt with more mature topics and it was one that made me have very mixed feelings. Part of me loved this story; the […]

Review | While It Lasts by Abbi Glines

While It Lasts is the third book in Sea Breeze and I want to say it is one of my favorites of the series. I can definitely understand why everyone is in love with Cage York. Cage York is a character we met in Because Of Low. He could be a little hard to like because he was your typical man whore but I also saw a side of him that I was curious about. And Abbi didn’t disappoint me when it came to Cage’s growth. He definitely had a […]

Review | Because Of Low By Abbi Glines

Because of Low is the second novel in Sea Breeze Series. This can be read as a standalone but if you’d like to fully understand the story, then I would recommend beginning with Breathe. Marcus was introduced in Breathe and I was Team Marcus so I was pretty excited to know that Because Of Low was his book. I had high expectations of Marcus that sadly weren’t meant. In Breathe, Marcus was sweet and kind and I felt like Because of Low showed a side of him, I didn’t really […]
