My Thoughts

The Belle
When I saw Buns show up on NetGalley I immediately requested and started after I finished my current read. If you've been here and read my rave reviews for it's predecessors, you know that I was ready to go back to the Hudson Valley with some homegrown hotties. And I was not disappointed.

That's My Bag, Baby {2}

Inspired by Hello, Chelly's What's in My Bag
It's been a while since I've done one of these and the last few weeks have definitely changed what I carry in my bag because, le sigh, I've succumbed to the traveler's notebook trend. After visiting Hannah and having her weave her Fae magic around me aka tell me how simple it is to use and how organized it makes her I was all about it. To be fair to Hannah, I was thinking of getting one for awhile but just couldn't find a cost-effective dupe but, again, she has magic she found one for me at JoAnn's! Woot woot! So here's what's in my bag as of late!

Adventures in the Great Wide Somewhere // Travel By Page to Italy

It's no secret I am in love with Italy. It falls just behind the UK in where my mind always goes to and where my heart lays. The food, the culture the architecture, the history, there is nothing about Italy that I don't love. So of course, I find myself reading quite a few books that take place here. Today I'm featuring my favorite books that take place in Italy, both past and present, to help you travel by page to one of my favorite places in the world...Italy.

My Thoughts

The Belle
Anybody that knows me knows I am beyond obsessed with Anne Boleyn. So when I found out Alison Weir, a favorite author of mine in regards to historical fiction and non-fiction Tudor books, I knew I had to read it. The second of six in a series exploring Henry VIII's six wives, I found this book to be everything I was hoping for.

A Marriage of Convenience

"I've been so alone for so long. Surrounded by people, yet essentially on my own, and facing a lifetime along--and I thought I was content with that,

My Thoughts

The Belle
When I saw Anne Gracie had a new book in a new series I was beyond fangirling. Since getting The Perfect Rake as a Christmas gift and falling in love with it and every book of hers since, there’s been now 9 total, I was SO excited to get this for review! This new series is about marriages of convenience and it did not disappoint.

Mug Life {2}



Hello from the ATL! Last week when I was with Hannah, she had the best idea to do a dual Mug Life because 1. We were together and taking it for everything it was worth 2. We couldn't stop talking about ACOWAR because it was coming out in a few days, currently out now. So we give you the above picture and below MUG LIFE! Just a fun FYI, those mugs on top of the books represents the hero of the book the mug is sitting on top of. If you've read the series--WHY HAVEN'T YOU READ THE SERIES YET--we hope you have a nice chuckle over the mug representation. We sure did...

Adventures in the Great Wide Somewhere // BFF in the ATL

If you've seen my Instagram or Twitter, you'll know last week I had the most amazing time  visiting one of my very best friends, Hannah, in Atlanta! I was so excited to finally visit her and hang out and meet her new little man! I can honestly say this was one of the best weeks ever. Hannah and I had so much fun and I wish I could have just moved into her guest bedroom and stayed for a long time. Geography continues to be my best and worst enemy because leaving made me so sad but I'm legit already looking at cheap flights to get back. This was how Hannah and I spent our time in the ATL!

My Thoughts

The Belle
When I got the pitch for this book, I was immediately intrigued. You can sell almost any book to me with the words destination romance or travel romance or takes place in ________. I love stories that take place in other countries, especially romances. I can relate to them *ahem* and I always like to see how a happily ever can play out in a beautiful location.

Mug Life {1}


Hello, all! Today I'm introducing a new feature I came up with that I'm really excited about. It's no secret that I love a cute mug. I love book-inspired ones, Queen-inspired ones, funny ones, love them all, can never have enough! So the feature is obviously called Mug Life and will include a picture of one of my favs, the current book I'm reading, and the nail color I'm currently rocking which all will be described in the acronym of MUG! But thanks to Hannah's input, I'm not stopping there. So Mug Life becomes...
