A New Beginning with a Giveaway

A New Beginning with a Giveaway

A New Beginning Hello friends! Today is the start of a new blog – welcome to (un)Conventional Bookworms, where Brandee and I will share our passion for all things bookish with you. We will continue to have reviews, some memes, challenges, discussion posts and more. Only now, it’s going to be twice as good. Since we’ve merged and we are two people who can make things happen. Hey, y’all! *waves* Welcome, welcome! We’re (un)Conventional Bookworms – a combination of our former blog names and a name we both felt was indicative of who we are as readers. As Lexxie said, since we’ve merged you’ll now be getting double the trouble…er, the fun here! Things will look familiar and things will […]

ARC Review: Bishop – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review: Bishop – Sawyer Bennett

Bishop was amazing! I’m so happy Ms. Bennett is branching out with more hockey-players – and both Bishop and Brooke really did it for me. Story: There’s a little bit of suspense with Brooke’s friend Nanette, and a whole lot of awesome hockey-talk, relationships between the players, and within the organization at large. Of course, the whole hockey setting is partly what I loved about Bishop, however, the characters really did it for me as well! There’s a certain camaraderie among these players, who were let go by their team to start a new team in Arizona. Because Brooke wanted to make sure her father, the coach, wouldn’t be unfair to Bishop, she pretended they were engaged when her father […]

Weekend Wrap-up #243 – Sweet, sweet rain.

Weekend Wrap-up #243 – Sweet, sweet rain.

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer. STS #243 Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week: I’ve already read both of these, and I just love the pure girl power included in this series! Women take the front seat, and they do what they want – plus, they […]

Safe and Sexy #33 – Cooper’s Charm

Safe and Sexy #33 – Cooper’s Charm

Safe and Sexy #33 – Cooper’s Charm Thinking of my romances and safe sex at the same time started when I wrote my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! Not too long after, the idea of sharing quotes about that ensured that the feature Safe and Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! […]

Review: Angry Annie – Dawn L. Chiletz

Review: Angry Annie – Dawn L. Chiletz

Angry Annie was a hoot! It kept me company on the plane back from Denver and BookBonanza, and I had so many laugh out loud moments. Story: Angry Annie was such a fun romantic comedy, and my first foray (but definitely NOT the last!) into Chiletz’s books. Joselyn had goals, but she had strange ways of going about achieving them. Trying to figure out who Annie was, and why her reviews were always so angry, became her new goal. She wanted to show the world what a sorry person Annie was – but things didn’t go as planned. As Angry Annie unfolded, Joselyn found herself actually liking the older woman. Even when Annie was difficult and short tempered, she told […]

Review: Cooper’s Charm – Lori Foster

Review: Cooper’s Charm – Lori Foster

Cooper’s Charm was a sweet, hot romance, in which two sisters needed some lovin’ even if they were doing alright on their own. Story: I really enjoyed Phoenix and what Cooper’s Charm managed to help her do to get her life back on track. However, the fact that Ridley, Phoenix’s sister also got her story in the same book made me a little bit sad. I would have enjoyed for each sister to have her full story – not a two-for-one at the beginning of a series. That being said, Cooper’s Charm is a solid beginning, and I loved the setting, the lake, the RV park, the fact that Cooper did all his best to make sure his guests were […]

ARC Review: The Simple Wild – K.A. Tucker

ARC Review: The Simple Wild – K.A. Tucker

The Simple Wild is a strong story, with characters who desperately need to make amends, and to move forward instead of looking backwards. Story: The Simple Wild starts with a day Calla thinks is the worst day of her life – losing her job, going back home to her mom and step-dad. Then, going out, seeing her boyfriend all cozy with another woman. Only, this wasn’t the worst day – that was yet to come. Because Calla’s mom didn’t enjoy living in the Alaskan wilderness, Calla grew up without a father. And as The Simple Wild unfolded, it was clear that the feeling of being abandoned and not important was very strong for Calla. Her father even stopped calling her […]

I mean, we’re merging our blogs – thus making our relationship official! And we’re both so excited about that.

For the rest of the month of August, starting on the 15th, we are doing several giveaways – both US ones and international ones, so make sure you mark not only your calendar, but also your bookmarked pages and come visit us […]

#COYER Mini-Challenge Romantic Suspense Day 3

#COYER Mini-Challenge Romantic Suspense Day 3

  COYER Mini-Challenge Romantic Suspense Day 3 Hello again, lovelies, our story continues today 😉 After our first meeting, we opened up more online, and we also chatted much more often than before. Not only did we have so many important things in common, we also got along so well! Of course, meeting in person once made us want to meet again – and soon, we started planning our second meeting. After the nervousness of our first meeting, there was no more of that. Only excitement, happiness, and joy at being able to spend time together again in real time. As many people asked us how we knew each other – being from opposite sides of the world and all […]
