Happy 2022 y’all! I can’t believe we’re already in 2022- let’s see how this year ends up going. I have high hopes haha

Review: The Twelve Dogs of Christmas by Lizzie Shane

Thank you so much to Forever for being such an amazing publishing house and for being so great to your bloggers and sending me all three of the Pine Hollow books by Lizzie Shane ❤ (I love Estelle and Dana- they’re really the best!) I was so excited to read them because they combine two of my favorite things- small town contemporary romances and dogs! What else could you ask for in a book???

Update: Books left to read in 2021 (and beyond)

Happy Monday y’all! I hope everyone had a great weekend (whether you celebrate Christmas or not- my family celebrates the commercialized version of Christmas where we get each other gifts, but we’re not Christian, so we don’t do any of the religious aspects). The weather was gorgeous here all weekend, so we spent a good amount of time outside (my dog loved running around in the backyard, terrorizing the squirrels). All of that family time and enjoying the outside time meant one very important thing though- no time to read! I have quite a few books I need to catch up on (lots of books sent to me from Forever and Grand Central Publishing that I need to read and review) and I have a good number of books to get ahead of for 2022- 3 of my ARCs come out on the 4th and I have 7 that I need to read for the 18th, plus I have 6 books checked out from the library, and there are some backlist ARCs that I was hoping to get to before the end of the year, so lots of reading to do!

Let’s talk through the books I’m (hopefully) going to be reading in the next week (so through January 3rd, which I know goes into 2022, but shhh, for this exercise, I’m going to count them):

ARC Review: The Excalibur Curse by Kiersten White

Happy Monday y’all! Ugh I hate how the last few working days before a vacation always seem to drag on so much longer than they should- I’m off for the rest of the year starting Wednesday and I want it to be here now! While the days have been dragging, you know what else has been dragging? Reading! I’ve had the hardest time staying interested in the books I’m reading and I can’t tell if it’s because I’m not enjoying them (well, with this one, that was the reason, but you’ll read all about that later) or if it’s just because everything is going so slowwwwly! Anyway, thank you so much to Delacorte Press and Netgalley for letting me read The Excalibur Curse! This is the third book in the Camelot Rising series and I loved books one and two, which I why I was super excited to read it (and very disappointed when I just didn’t like it).

ARC Review: Shadow of Light by Molly E Lee

Happy Tuesday y’all! I 100% thought I had already reviewed this one, but I guess that’s what happens when I read too many books in a short span of time. Anyway, Shadow of Light came out on November 30th and is the sequel to Ember of Night and if you’ve read Ember of Night, I think you’ll enjoy where Shadow of Light took things! As always, thank you so much to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book!

Shadow of Light 4/5 Stars

November Wrap-Up

Man, I can’t believe that we’re already in December and this year is almost over! OMG! I’ll do a full year wrap up either at the end of December or at the beginning of January, but man, thinking back over the whole year is going to be super fun.

ARC Review: The Christmas Wedding Guest by Susan Mallery

Oh man y’all- I was supposed to be on a blog tour for this book with HQN and I got my dates completely wrong (the tour went from 11/21-11/27, I thought it went from 11/27-12/4), so I’m posting this very late, but I’m no less excited about sharing The Christmas Wedding Guest with y’all because 1) it was amazing and 2) I love Susan Mallery’s books.

ARC Review: Finding Paradise by Barbara Dunlop

Happy Wednesday y’all! Fifteen billion amazing books came out yesterday (Finding Paradise being one of them) and instead of picking one to yell about and review, I got trapped in the indecision, and posted… nothing. Haha today, I made a decisive decision to write a review for Finding Paradise, but be ready for a whole lot of amazing contemporary romances, rom coms, and just all in all cute books to be reviewed in the next couple of weeks! (I might break them up with some fun YA fantasy/sci fi, but we’ll see what I end up reading in the next couple of weeks- I’ve read 2 more romances to review after this one, I started one YA fantasy, and I have like 8 more romances on my list, so we’ll see what happens). As usual, thank you so much to Berkley and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book!

Finding Paradise 4/5 Stars
