Review: Space by Penny Reid

Want it now? Buy it here! Recently, I shared a release blitz post for Book 2 of the Laws of Physics series, Space. I also shared my book review of Book 1, Motion. While I liked Motion even more, Space is a promising “arc” book in the series, and I am very excited for Book 3, Time! I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. Thoughts Now, I know not all of my followers like dual POV, but I adored seeing Abram’s view in Space! Mona’s voice is still so strong and personable, but it was important to see how Abram figured out…

Review: Motion by Penny Reid

Want it now? Order it here! Note: This post contains affiliate links. Last week, I shared a release blitz post about Motion, Part 1 of a new series by Penny Reid, Laws of Physics. It’s also part of her Hypothesis series, which I haven’t read yet! Despite not reading the other series (yet), I dove right into this one. I didn’t need a prior introduction to Abram to fall for him just as quickly as Mona, our awesome main character, did! Thoughts There. Are. A lot. I’ll be spoiler-free, but let me just gush to you for a moment. I went into Motion knowing…

Review: The Fear of Falling by Amanda Cowen

I just finished another new adult romance by Amanda Cowen. (I recently reviewed Tainted.) Yet again, Cowen introduces us to two strong-willed college students with a past and intense chemistry. Ella and Ryan have been best friends since their freshman year, but after hooking up on Ella’s twenty-first birthday their junior year, the chemistry between them is undeniable. But neither of them is any good at committing. Ryan has a long string of casual partners, while Ella has never had a serious relationship and refuses to settle down.   View this post on Instagram   #CR another sexy new adult read by…

Review: Tainted by Amanda Cowen

Want it now? Order it here! Tainted by Amanda Cowen is a sexy af love triangle romance about Rhys Wyatt, bad boy musician, and Ivy Bishop, his brother’s feisty girlfriend. I love a good erotic romance novel, which Tainted totally is – but even better, it belongs to the burgeoning New Adult genre that’s taking the indie romance world by storm! The tension is real. I’ll admit it: There were times I found Ivy, one of the narrators, to be selfish, clueless, and indecisive. But then I remembered being in my early twenties and in love and lust for the first times.…

Review: Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Want it now? Order it here! I kept seeing hype on #romanstagram about The Winston Brothers series, and as a result, I absolutely had to jump on board. I love bearded men and the Smoky Mountains region of Tennessee, so I was all about the concept. While I only rated Truth or Beard with 3 stars, that wasn’t because it was “just okay” – in fact, I really, really loved this book and am excited to delve into the series as a wohle. Read on to find out more! “If you can’t have an adventure where you are, what makes you think…

Developing a New Adult Fiction Collection

I developed this piece as a literature review for my class in Collection Development. Since joining bookstagram and interacting more with self-published authors, I’ve learned so much about the burgeoning New Adult genre. Additionally, I fell in love with the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas, which I feel fits into the New Adult genre, despite being marketed as Young Adult. I’d like to share this literature review with you in hopes that it will help more people learn about this genre/age group! New adult fiction is a developing genre. In recent years, there has “been an uptick in books…

My 2018 Bookshelf (So Far)

When I created my bookstagram account last spring, I did it with every intention of becoming a better reader. As a teenager, I read voraciously, but with adult life and responsibilities, I fell away from that. In 2017, I read thirty-five books. I know that this doesn’t sound like a lot to some bookstagrammers, but for someone who was only reading a book every month or two, this is A LOT! Wait, what’s bookstagram? Bookstagram is an affectionate name/hashtag used by readers on Instagram. Book + Instagram = bookstagram. So far, things have gone slow for me as far as filling up my bookshelf…
