Any Old Diamonds by K.J. Charles (2019)

K.J. Charles is one of my favorite authors, and I love basically every single one of her books– and this one is no exception. It’s very difficult to write a coherent review for a favorite author because all my positive feelings overwhelm my analytical thoughts until my brain is just a big ball of “yay,

Spectered Isle by K.J. Charles

Let’s speed past the fact that I’ve been on a 1.5 year hiatus from blogging and have fallen out of writing for fun or even reading[1. books, that is, I’ve read plenty of fanfic over the hiatus. Some of it even novel-length!] and let’s get right to the review: This is the first in KJ

The Only Option by Megan Derr

What a sweet little book! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, partly because the cover and the series name makes it look like a much darker book than it actually is. It looks like it’s full of drama and depressing things and angst, but it’s almost completely the opposite. I mean, there’s

Skip Trace by Kelly Jensen and Jenn Burke

This is the 3rd Chaos Station book! I haven’t reviewed the first two here, but I enjoyed them and obviously kept reading the series. The first book is a second-chance lovers romance, with scifi thriller stuff! There’s super soldiers, a government conspiracy, outer space shenanigans, aliens, secrets, and kissing. And the second book builds off

Bellingham Mysteries by Nicole Kimberling

This is a mystery-romance series about a newspaper reporter and his artist boyfriend, and the constant shenanigans they get into while trying to solve crimes! The first book is very mystery-centric, which makes sense because the protag’s love interest is also technically a suspect. Sidenote: I super loved having a newspaper journalist as the detective,

Think of England by K.J. Charles

Easing back into reviewing with a book that has been on my TBR since June of last year! At first I wasn’t sure of Archie’s hero-ness, as he has some historically-accurate feelings about Jewish people, effeminate men, and “queers” that didn’t mesh well with the romantic element and furthermore made me very uncomfortable. It also

REVIEW: Clockwork Heart by Heidi Cullinan

Alt history, yay! Airships! Steampunk that’s more than just fashion! Austrian princesses who need their own books ASAP! This was pretty different from her other books, actually. Which is great, because authors should try new things. For instance: the sexytimes vocabulary was way different than her usual, possibly because she was going for a dated/historical

Weekly reading, vol. 17

Hello, happy Sunday, hope you’re doing okay, what sort of Pokemon have you caught, etc. I’m in a teeny reading slump at the moment, but I’ve just loaded a bunch of Hollis Shiloh books onto my Kindle so I’m hoping they’ll help me get through the bleh. Meanwhile, here’s what I read this week: I

Weekly reading, vol. 16

Howdy! That was some break, there. It worked out great for me, though, as I think I finally got some of my blogging mojo back. I’m gonna try this weekly round-up thing again and see if I can stick to it. Meanwhile, I have been (semi) active on Twitter and VERY active on Goodreads, so
