ARC Review: “Never Fall for Your Fiancée,” by Virginia Heath

"Reader, I married him." Such a cliché line, but it's all I got. It has been a month since I have posted, and my only excuse is one blip in the timeline of life: My wedding. Lots of planning, lots of recovery, but on October 9, I finally said my vows in front of a … Continue reading ARC Review: “Never Fall for Your Fiancée,” by Virginia Heath

Book Review: “Bringing Down the Duke,” by Evie Dunmore

Another week, another amazing romcom! Only this time, historical romance is the name of the game.

ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton

I was so excited to receive this ARC from Netgalley and Random House Children's because it has so many things that I love: Russian mythology, an animal narrator, and a spooky forest. One of my favorite ARCS I've ever gotten from Netgalley was Bear and the Nightingale, a YA historical fantasy based in Russia. A Wolf for … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Wolf for a Spell,” by Karah Sutton
