This was a very fun read. It is also the most accurate representation of today teaching environment I‘ve read in fiction. This author obviously is a teacher, or was one. It is a delightful, light #romantsy read!

I enjoyed this mildly #romantsy geeky mystery. Not my usual genre, but was highly recommended by @ValkyrieAndHerBooks and my RL book club picked for this month‘s read. A fun dive into comic/geek culture and all it entails. #mystery

Even though I‘m sort of taking a break from YA, I‘ve had this on my Kindle for a while and it helps me almost finish #LitsyAtoZ! This is my #Y book. I did like this sweet romance, though a touch pretentious it still is a well written smart #YA. It is #romantsy but no graphic sex scenes.

I give this 3.5 🤩. I was on the fence between Pick and So-so, but I really enjoyed the new world Harrison has started and it kept me entertained to the point I couldn‘t stop listening. It‘s not perfect and the relationship is rushed, but it is a solid beginning to an intriguing new Paranormal romance series. #audiobook #romantsy

This began strong and then fell into way too common romance tropes. There are dark themes here, but none of them are quite developed as much as I would have liked. This was part of the #audibleromancepackage and the audio is well done. #romantsy

I really enjoyed this new #romantsy book by the fabulous Alyssa Cole. Continuing the Reluctant Royals series with the daughter of a devious politician and a scandalous non-Prince. All good fun with geekiness and inclusivity. I definitely recommend, though a standalone this series works best in order.

Not a great exercise week as I had a small surgical procedure done, but almost made my two hour goal before it. I did finish another audio book though. #unpopularopinion I did not love this book as much as I wanted to. The main characters were just so unpleasant for the majority of the book I almost dnf. I enjoyed the ending though! An interesting twist on P&P. @wanderinglynn #BFC

I enjoyed this #arc! This is my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more. I believe it comes out in July. The premise is our main character comes home after a stint in prison for transporting stolen goods and her going home. If you enjoy family drama and suspense with a pinch of romance, you‘ll enjoy this fun read!

First book done for #24b4Monday. For a while I thought I would dnf this meandering mixed up time journey. Thankfully the pacing finally picked up the last 25%. It was just Ok. The timelines are distracting and there are whole passages that seem pointless. The main plot is interesting enough for me to give this a so-so.
