ARC Review | The Lion Heart by Carrie Aarons

Trigger Warnings: Sexual Assault, Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Verbal Abuse. The Lion Heart is book 2 in the Rouge Academy. This can be read as a standalone, you do not need to read The Second Coming to understand The Lion Heart. However, it does contain some spoilers from The Second Coming, so I’d recommend you read it. The Story The Lion Heart takes place after The Second Coming. The story is told in both Poppy’s and Kingston’s point of view. We follow Kingston who despite all the talent in the […]

Blog Tour | Collision by Nicole Banks

Collision is the third novel in the Shattered Hearts series. It is the final book in the series and the book I’ve been highly anticipating for YEARS. I would highly recommend you read Shattered and Into Pieces to understand Collision. It can be read as standalone but to fully understand the story, I recommend reading the previous books. The Story Collision much like Shattered and Into Pieces are written in multiple POVs. It is my personal favorite thing about Nicole’s writing. I love that she gives us a chance to […]

ARC Review | Falter by Carrie Aarons

Falter is the final book in The Nash Brothers series and the one book I was so excited to read. All these books can be read as standalone, but I’d recommend you read Fleeting, Forgiven and Flutter so you can get a bit of a backstory. The Story Falter takes place a couple years after the previous books. We have seen how Fletcher has grown throughout the books but in Falter he is centered stage. Here, we meet a sober Fletcher, he is struggling and working each and every day […]

Audio Review | The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

The Poet X is a book that I’ve had sitting on my kindle for a long time. It was also the July pick for the Latinx Book Club, so I figured, I need to pick this up NOW. My First Impression: I had heard through several people that I was going to love the Poet X. And it was a pretty hyped book and as you know, me and hype books have a very rocky relationship. So, I went in with the best intentions and I can say that I […]

Blog Tour + Giveaway | Trashed by Mia Hopkins

Trashed is the second book in the Eastside Brewery series. You could possibly read Trashed before Thirsty however, I’d recommend Thirsty first because Sal and because you see a bit of Trashed featured. The Story Eddie Rosas is a character we met in Thirsty. He is Sal’s younger brother and just like Sal is a fellow gang member and was just released from jail. He is attempting to stay out of trouble, but it seems like trouble just follows him everywhere. During this time, he met a girl and they […]

ARC Review | Thirsty by Mia Hopkins

Thirsty is the first book in the Eastside Brewery series by Mia Hopkins. Thirsty takes place in East Los Angeles in a very poor neighborhood plagued by gangs, drugs and shootings. Thirsty is a bit dirty and a bit dark but above all it was hopeful. Salvador Rosas is our main character and the story is told in his point of view. He has just been released from prison after being in there for five years. He is trying to be a better man, he is trying to stay out […]

Blog Tour | Dating Roulette by D. Kelly

If you are in the mood for something quick, short and an adorable romance then you should pick up Dating Roulette. Dating Roulette was a cute friends to lovers meets roommates romance. I felt like I was about to get into a reading slump, so this was an easy way to get out of that. The Story Dating Roulette is centered around Bex and Tristan. Bex is a bit of serial dater who Tristan thinks is unusual. Bex is notorious for breaking things off with a guy before the 7th […]

ARC Review | Flutter by Carrie Aarons

Flutter is the third novel in the Nash Brothers series. You don’t necessarily need to read Fleeting or Forgiven to read Flutter. However, you should because you meet both Penelope or Forrest and learn a little about them in the other novels. Flutter is a mix of enemies to lovers meets friends with benefits. There is also an age gap, Penelope is six years older than Forrest. Flutter is told in Penelope and Forrest’s point of view. I have been wanting Penelope to get her happy ending since the first […]

(Audio Review) We Set The Dark On Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia

We Set the Dark on Fire was the June BOTM for the Latinx Book Club. I’ve seen a lot of hype about this book and I was nervous to start it because let’s be honest hype books and I are always at odds. I was truly hoping that We Set the Dark on Fire would live up to the hype for me because the cover is so gorgeous. We Set the Dark on Fire is a queer Handmaid’s Tale. (I’ve never seen/read Handmaid’s Tale but I explained the book to […]
