TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books with my favorite trope/theme

Today's Top Ten Tuesday covers my favorite trope. Listen. Listen. When it comes to romance, enemies-to-lovers is the way to go. To view someone as a threat, you have to view them as an equal! That's where respect comes from! There's something magic about, "I need to take this person out...because they're too hot to… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books with my favorite trope/theme

January Wrap-Up: A good time??

I had...a surprisingly nice January? It wasn't all great. I came down with what I'm PRETTY sure was Omicron. Would not recommend. I spent most of the month, though, housesitting in Tacoma. That I WOULD recommend. I turned 29, ate a lot of cake, hung out with friends and family, and had an existential crisis.… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: A good time??
