PassionFlix Movie Review ~ The Will ~ Kristen Ashley @PassionFlix

PassionFlix Movie Review ~ The Will ~ Kristen Ashley @PassionFlix

As you may know, I’m not a t.v. watcher. I don’t even watch movies all that often although we have been watching one a week as a family activity since the kids came home from college because of Covid. Anyway, I first heard about PassionFlix at RT although I can’t recall which year…I’m thinking 2017. I was so excited. I mean, what could be better than a movie version of my favorite books? But then I got nervous because “the book was better” and life happened and I forgot all about PassionFlix. Until The Will. I first saw that The Will was being made as a movie when I saw an IG post from KA. It was a photo of […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Teach Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Teach Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

I have to admit that I hated leaving Alaska in this installment but I appreciated what being in Pennsylvania did for Abbi and Henry. I’m so in love with their story! Yeah, me, too! I loved the way they were kind of enclosed in Alaska, but with scrutinizing eyes everywhere. Being in Pennsylvania changed a lot of things, and it showed us just how much Henry cares.   The reason for Abbi’s need to go home – her dad’s accident – and how Henry dealt with it had me vacillating between fear and hope. Fear and hope both for Abbi’s dad and for her relationship with Henry. I fell for Henry a little bit more due to his actions. How […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Bossy Brothers: Tony – J.A. Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Bossy Brothers: Tony – J.A. Huss

Tony blew my mind! I loved how things really weren’t what they seemed, and also the fact that we were back in Fort Collins with characters from prior Huss stories in the background. I, too, loved how Huss took us in a direction we weren’t anticipating (although, is that really unexpected with her?!? LOL) and it was PERFECT. And being back in FoCo was like coming home. 😉 I loved that Tony could surprise me and that this book took a direction that was not exactly unexpected, but rather unconventional. What is your first impression, Wifey? I was definitely surprised by the direction this story went but thrilled at the same time. In the EOBS, Huss said that she took […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Break Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Break Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Break Me in some ways, well, broke me. Not to worry though. NWest repaired the damage. LOL Ha! Nice pun, wifey 🙂 Okay, I’m going to start with the shit-storm swirling around Henry. There’s the stress of the hotel opening and having to schmooze people…namely women. Then there’s his dad and asshole brother arriving and said brother trying to stir up trouble. And then there’s the matter of allegations made by Henry’s former assistant. This all causes problems for Abbi and Henry’s fledgling romance. I know that Henry tried to explain things to Abbi, to prepare her for the things she might see and/or hear, but I felt like he should have known better. Yes, he’s used to being with […]

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #164 ~ Bossy Tony

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #164 ~ Bossy Tony

  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: The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

The Gilded Wolves is an intricate fantasy set in an alternate historical Paris, where Sèverin and his friends follow mysterious clues to try to salvage their future. The Gilded Wolves hit all the right spots for me! The fantasy elements really spoke to me, the forging being almost magical, in that some of the characters could infuse objects to do different things. There was also a mysterious order, where the matriarch or patriarch of a family had to wear a special ring that was more or less embedded to their finger. The Characters were well rounded – I loved Sèverin, Tristan, Enrique, Hypnos, Zofia and Laila all had their flaws, but they all had their strengths, too. The Gilded Wolves […]

Audio Review ~ The Scribe ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Audio Review ~ The Scribe ~ Elizabeth Hunter

How much did I love The Scribe? Let me count the ways. LOL I’ve been intending to read EHunter since 2013 when I challenged myself to read the attending authors of TFEIC. (that’s The First Ever Indie Conference) Now, I’m mentally smacking myself for having waited so long. The Scribe was so compelling and the fact Zachary Webber narrated it only made the story that much richer. Ava is such an interesting character. When we meet her she’s in a session with a psychiatrist because she’s looking for answers to why she has always felt different. The psychiatrist sends her to Istanbul where he believes there is someone who can help her. Once there, something is set into motion that […]
