Book Review: First Comes Love by Emily Giffin

I’m a big fan of Emily Giffin and I’ve really loved pretty much all of her other books. She has a great way of writing families and women in particular that is incredibly realistic, funny, and moving. So when I got a chance to meet her at BEA back in May I was really excited! I got a chance to get a signed copy of First Comes Love, which was great, and the author was genuine with her fans (also she was beautiful in person!).

Book Review: Sting by Sandra Brown

I’ve been reading Sandra Brown off and on for years. Her past couple of releases have been on my “I must have it on release day!” list.

Holy Freaking OMG – Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrated an Audiobook!

I don’t think I’ve squealed about Hamilton and Lin-Manuel Miranda or any of the amazing cast members here (that needs to be corrected shortly!), but I’m kind of obsessed with it. So much so that when I discovered that Lin had narrated a YA book previously I had to rush out to listen to it as quickly as possible. Even better is that the book turned out to be really well written with amazing characters so BONUS! Continue reading “Holy Freaking OMG – Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrated an Audiobook!”

Book Review: Results May Vary by Bethany Chase

Caroline Hammond discovers her husband is having an affair. Does it sting a bit more because that affair is with another man? I think so. This revelation forces Caroline to question her entire relationship with her husband, Adam. Continue reading “Book Review: Results May Vary by Bethany Chase”

Book Review: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes

I’ve been in a bit of a book slump so I had no idea what I was going to write about for this week’s blog post, but then I woke up this morning to an email from Audible highlighting As You Wish by Cary Elwes as today’s Daily Deal and my decision was made.
