#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Hounded Author: Kevin Hearne Recommended by: Kimba @Caffeinated Reviewer, Melanie @Hot Listens Okay, so Hounded could be considered a little outside my usual MO. I mean, there’s no romance. 😉 But Kimba raved about it. So did Melanie. And, there was my blogger wife as well. 😉 So I gave it a go and it was everything they made it out to be. Highlights Characters Oh my do I love Atticus. As a multi-millennia old druid, he’s seen a […]

#OctobeRec Fest Review #1 ~ Grip ~ Kennedy Ryan

#OctobeRec Fest Review #1 ~ Grip ~ Kennedy Ryan

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Grip Author: Kennedy Ryan Recommended by: Ali @Black Heart Reviews Grip (well actually its prequel, Flow) served as my intro to Kennedy Ryan. And you do need to read Flow first to see how things started. But Grip was fan-freakin-tastic. And I became an instant fan of Kennedy Ryan. Highlights: Characters Grip and Bristol, 8 years later, are still in each other’s orbits. Bristol is now a music agent and Grip, as Bristol foretold, is a star. I admire […]

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words was, in a word, hysterical. If you’ve read Tara Sivec before, you know you’re going to get laugh-out-loud humor. And even though Heidi’s story was a joint effort with Andi Arndt, there was plenty of humor. Seriously. Heidi is a good girl. She’s not a prude and the word prim comes to mind but that feels derogatory. I think she’s been sheltered and has always done what was expected of her. A good girl. So when she finds herself at a crossroads, thanks to being fired from her position as a kindergarten teacher, she chooses the road less traveled. Now, that wasn’t intentional on Heidi’s part but it was a hilarious journey. And you’ll […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Johnny ~ JA Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Johnny ~ JA Huss

In Johnny, everything became clear. Er…sort of. Well, I understand Johnny better anyway. It was quite a crazy ride. And although I didn’t think it was possible, Johnny became my favorite Bossy brother. 😉 LOL, yeah, we sure did get some answers, but things didn’t exactly get all that clear anyway. I do agree that we got to understand Johnny better, and he actually became my favorite Bossy brother, too. Who would have thought? You and I agreeing like that 😉 I don’t know what I thought was going to happen when Johnny set off on this mission but it wasn’t rescuing a girl left in a dungeon to die. So I was immediately on edge. But I did appreciate […]

I love the Original Sinners series to pieces. I wanted to read […]

OctobeRec Fest ~ It’s Back!

OctobeRec Fest ~ It’s Back!

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. It’s a little something I did back when I was blogging solo. I skipped doing it last year but decided to bring it back this year because…well, it’s fun! 😉 (Sky will get around to updating my graphic sometime before next year!)   I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Here are a few of the books I’m hoping to get to this month. I’m sure you’ll recognize your recommendations but I’ll try to make sure to call you out in my reviews. 😉 And if I manage to […]

Audio Review ~ White Knight ~ Meghan March

Audio Review ~ White Knight ~ Meghan March

Although not as suspenseful as its predecessor, White Knight was an engaging and exciting conclusion to the duet. And, of course, Ardnt and York were perfect!! White Knight picked up where Black Sheep ended. Good thing since I’d been biting my nails anxiously awaiting the continuation of that scene. It was shocking but not for the reasons I’d been anticipating. Once things are cleared up between Drew/Memphis and Cannon, the story took a turn. Memphis’s original purpose for insinuating herself into Cannon’s life changes and Cannon works to prove he’ll do whatever he can to get her the answers she needs. He also has to prove to his family – his father and brother – that he’s worthy. But he wants to […]

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #182 ~ The Will

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #182 ~ The Will

  Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’d never ever want to taste… and we thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us in your own post. The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well […]
