Weekend Wrap-up #303 – Winter Break in Spain

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer. STS #303 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: As I’m on K.A. Tucker’s ARC team, I got a copy of this beauty this week. I can’t wait to read it! <3 Both of these were pre-orders, and they were also […]

Audio Review ~ P.S. It’s Always Been You: Part 1 ~ Lauren Blakely #AudibleOriginal

Audio Review ~ P.S. It’s Always Been You: Part 1 ~ Lauren Blakely #AudibleOriginal

P.S. It’s Always Been You Part 1 is the first third of a novel by LBlakely and released as an Audible Original. It nicely set up the backstory between Presley and Hunter as well as their present circumstances and what has brought them together again. I love the premise of this story and I’m a sucker for second chance romance. I’m pulling hard for these two even if Hunter did a sound job of breaking Presley’s heart years ago. There’s still crackling chemistry between them and I’m eager to see how things develop as they work in such close proximity. See, Presley is an art historian and Hunter is best described as a thrill seeker. Together they’re working on cataloging […]

Buddy Read Chat Review w/Berls ~ Mine to Take ~ Cynthia Eden #COYER

Buddy Read Chat Review w/Berls ~ Mine to Take ~ Cynthia Eden #COYER

We both were hooked at the prologue. It was the last few sentences that did it for me. Having finished, I’m still curious about who the speaker was. What hooked you? And if it was the same thing, are you still curious as well? Ditto! It hooked me and quite literally gave me chills. Even now, rereading it, I get chills because, yeah, I don’t know who it is!!! And I want to know why she clearly didn’t remember that moment (if she had, there would be no mystery… Or a different one) and will she in a future book? Do you think CEden left it deliberately unresolved?  I hadn’t thought about her leaving it unresolved on purpose. That’s totally […]

Review ~ The MacKinnon’s Bride ~ Tanya Anne Crosby #COYER

Review ~ The MacKinnon’s Bride ~ Tanya Anne Crosby #COYER

I read The MacKinnon’s Bride as part of the Honoring Lost Friends RaT. It was on both my list (I owned it) and Tiffany’s list. I enjoyed my introduction to Tanya Anne Crosby and will read more of her. I happen to own a few…go figure. 😉 What Worked: Characters Both Iain and Page were well-drawn, compelling characters. TACrosby did well in giving them both histories that meant they had trouble opening their hearts to others. Their pasts and the subsequent effects on their personalities made me curious about and sympathetic toward them both. They were each strong, resilient, loyal, and compassionate. And I was cheering for the blossoming romance. Mystery/Intrigue From the start I was interested in Iain’s deceased […]

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #158 ~ Soaring

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #158 ~ Soaring

  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 […]

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley never disappoints me and Soaring was no different. This story had it all…engaging characters (even the kids!), character growth, realistic family issues…and I loved it all. Highlights: Seasoned Characters I have to admit to loving the fact that KA writes seasoned characters. Both Amelia and Mickey are closing in on 50 and I like experiencing life with and through characters that have lived as much life as I have. Second Chance Romance If you haven’t yet figured out that I’m a sucker for this trope, you will. Yep, I’m a sucker for it. I adore that Amelia and Mickey have lived the lives they’ve lived, lost at love, but are growing, changing, and getting a second chance at […]

Up Close & (un)Conventional Bookish Babble #5 ~ Notes from the Nest

Up Close & (un)Conventional Bookish Babble #5 ~ Notes from the Nest

Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble. This is where we discuss whatever we feel like. It can be something about books or the bookish community, or it can be about something else entirely! I know that some of you may be past the empty nest stage and some of you may be nowhere close to it, but I wanted to share some things I’ve learned now that I’m ~4 months into empty nesting. Some of these things are serious and some are tongue-in-cheek…I hope you enjoy! Always, but always, go with the biggest meal plan for your teenage boy! Otherwise you’ll be sending more money to supplement his food budget. […]

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Heartland pulled at my heartstrings – the friends to lovers trope, the slow burn, and the amazing chemistry made my heart both gooey and achy! Bowen always manages to write stories that bring out all the feels, and Heartland is no exception to that! Chastity was so innocent in many ways – as she had been free from the religious cult she was born into for only two years. In other ways, though, she was both strong and independent. Plus she was definitely motivated to make a good life for herself. The fact that she was in love with Dylan didn’t just complicate her life though, it also made it better in many ways. Heartland is a story with two […]
