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.

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

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 […]

Rant Review | The Perfect Date..

Rant Review | The Perfect Date by Evelyn Lozada

I should start off by saying that I went into this with relatively low expectations because I have read Evelyn’s previous book the Inner Circle and wasn’t blown away by it, but it was addicting. So, I figured that The Perfect Date reflected a lot of what I’ve seen on Basketball Wives when it came to Evelyn’s relationship with a baseball player. There were a ton of similarities between her real life and The Perfect Date. However, I WAS DUPED! Please, don’t let this adorable cover. The synopsis trick you. […]

ARC Review | The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons

The Second Coming is the first book in Carrie Aarons’ new series Rogue Academy. The Second Coming has a little bit of angst, steam and drama. It keeps you on your toes and you end up reading the entire thing one sitting. The Second Coming is a sort of spin off of Carrie’s previous novel Red Card, you actually don’t need to read Red Card to understand the Second Coming. However, it does have a bit of spoilers so if you want to read Red Card, I would but you […]

This Ain’t Disney | Pan by Gina Maxwell (Review)

Before starting this review, I have to warn you. If you are thinking this will include Mermaids, Pirates, and magic, you will be disappointed. The only magic that happens in Pan is between the sheets. Yes, you read that right. Pan is a modern contemporary romance of Peter Pan. This ain’t Disney so please don’t go into this thinking Peter and the gang will be young children. They are grown and living in Neverland North Carolina. There are similarities in the story to the original, such as the character names […]
