More often than not, romance books get a pretty bad rep for reasons such as their cheesy titles, soft porn covers and myriad of clichéd tropes.
I really enjoy books with romance as a strong subplot. (Six of Crows, anyone?) I typically don’t gravitate towards Romance as a genre.However February is a great time to appreciate the few romance books I’ve read and loved.
Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section if you’ve read any of these books or whether you can recommend some steamy romance books to me! 😜

The Darkest Corners
Author: Kara Thomas

The Darkest Corners had been on my TBR shelf since it’s release and in recent months I had actually taken it off my to read shelf.

As much of I am a reader, I’m a cinephile. Therefore, I get really excited about upcoming book to movie adaptations. Below I’ve compiled a list of movies you can expect to be released in the first quarter of 2018 (and what you can add to your to-be-read piles if you want to read the book before you see the movie!)

This weeks Top Five Wednesday topic is books we found to be forgettable. These books may be ones you loved or hated whilst reading, but ultimately just don’t remember them. For me, these were books I rated roughly between two to three (out of five) stars. Because books I really didn’t enjoy, I actually remember why (and with a burning passion.)

I found that I had a really interesting and unexpected experience whilst listening to Truthwitch via Audiobook. At first, I was a little less than impressed. A lot of the criticisms that I’d heard about this book following its release rang true. However upon finishing this book, I was in disbelief I contemplated DNF’ing it earlier on, because by the end I was absolutely enthralled with the story and the characters.
