High Stakes Fantasy Full of Magic & Intrigue // The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

My Thoughts: If you visit Lilybloombooks often, you’d know that Sarah Fine is my favorite author. I love her writing, the world’s that she creates, and of course all her character’s as well.

Honestly, I was nervous when I found out that this isn’t a sequel to Elli’s story, but rather a companion story […]

The Inside of Out by Jenn Marie Thorne

My Thoughts: After seeing The Inside of Out available for review on audio, I immediately requested it. I’ve been eyeing it ever since I read the description, and while I didn’t read the authors debut novel, I’ve heard such great things about her writing. My thoughts are in the mixed bag variety, so let’s break it down so I’m able to express my thoughts in at least a semi-coherent way. […]

I Ship It! // Out of Frame by Megan Erickson

My Thoughts: I don’t think there’s anything Megan could write that I wouldn’t read.

However, since we see the couples from the previous books, the importance of those scenes might be lost if you haven’t […]

Audio Book Review | Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin

My thoughts: The Symptoms of Being Human is quite the story, one that I feel is important and a must read.  It’s informative, eye-opening, funny and heartfelt all in one swoop. Some issues not withstanding, the execution of this novel was nothing short of brilliant. The lack of pronouns would at times, frustrate me, but it’s necessary to really understand the story and GET IT. As a reader, we never find […]
