Ranking My Favorite Romance Series on the Scoville Scale of Spiciness

This week, a friend of mine was asking what I was reading. I’ve been in reading rut all year almost and it’s been a little tough. However, usually I pick up romance books to get me back into the habit of reading after a slump. I explained to this friend that I rank books on a level of spiciness. From cool they love each other to whoa hopefully no one sees me reading these in public. I thought it would be fun to use the Scoville Scale (used to rank spicy peppers) to recommend some of my favorite romance series for the people looking to read only the best parts or avoid them like I do sometimes. (Hey! We all have our tastes in books!) Continue reading “Ranking My Favorite Romance Series on the Scoville Scale of Spiciness”

I Let My Instagram Followers Pick My TBR Stack

For a while, I’ve asked people in a book community I’m part of to pick what I’m reading next through emoji polls. It has been so much fun and sometimes a little out of control, but I haven’t done it in a while. I told a friend of mine I was thinking about asking my Instagram followers to pick my TBR books for September. I was told it was a bonkers idea so I decided to do it anyway. Everyone was way more responsive than I anticipated, but I . AM. SO. EXCITED!!!!!! Continue reading “I Let My Instagram Followers Pick My TBR Stack”

What I Read When Something Terrible Happened

Two weeks ago I got a text that no child wants to get. Dad. Rushed to Hospital. Chest Pains. Significant. This isn’t our first rodeo with my dad’s heart condition, but this one felt different for some reason. It felt more significant, it felt scarier, and, quite frankly, it felt urgent. So my brother and I left to visit our parents out-of-state. Thankfully, my dad is doing well and on the mend. This post is about the books I read while dealing with my dad’s open heart surgery.

Favorite Books of February 2018

I had a stinkin’ awful, no good, rotten February. Maybe it was the shortened month so I had less days at work. Possibly it was the books I read being too serious or just flat-out bad. Maybe it was my mail getting placed in the wrong box and all my packages being sent back and experiencing bad customer service from my subscription box (bye Book of the Month. It was nice knowing you). I’m glad it’s behind me and so I’d like to focus on the positive: my favorite books of February 2018. Continue reading “Favorite Books of February 2018”
