Be Still My Heart: 10 Love Stories Totally Worth the Wait!

in Romance by

Be still my heart! Between the new episodes of Outlander and Arrow, this has been a pretty great week for romance. And not just any standard romance either, but love stories that we have been pining over, desperately waiting for our favorite couples to reunite. Gif via Giphy.com On Outlander, we finally got our Print Shop Scene, with Claire and Jamie reuniting after spending 20 years – and technically a couple of centuries – apart. As a longtime Outlander fan (of both the show and the books!), it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. Awkward, sweet, and crazy romantic. Don’t even get me started on the basically 45 minute sex scene that followed. Gif via jvmiefraser.tumblr.com When it comes…

Hello 2017! Ringing in the New Year with Reading Resolutions

in Potpourri by

It’s pretty common knowledge that 2016 sucked. Hard. Like most of you, I have been patiently waiting for this year to finally be over so I can move on to a better and brighter 2017 (fingers crossed). And with that comes some New Year’s resolutions that are guaranteed to make this next year rock. Usually, I make the typical resolutions: more gym time, less TV (yeah, right), and no more chocolate after 10 p.m. (sure). But, obviously, I tend to break them by about – oh – yesterday. This year, I want to do it right, which is why all of my resolutions are about something I genuinely love: books. Not only do I want to read more, but I…

These 15 Fantasy Novels by Female Authors are Electrifying the Genre

in Fiction by

Fantasy is everywhere these days, and I’m not complaining. I’ve always loved reading about other worlds, with their kings and queens and dragons and epic romances. When I was younger, most of the fantasy authors I would see on the shelves were men. These days, I’m happy to see that more and more female authors are being published within the genre. I might even go as far as to say we’re in a boom of female-driven fantasy. Thank God. While I could just put endless amounts of books in this list, here are 15 recent (or about-to-be released) fantasy novels I just can’t wait to read; all written by women, of course. Marked in Flesh (The Others #4), Anne Bishop (Roc, March…

The Top 10 March Books We’re Dying to Devour

in Fiction by

March is that in-between month where it’s SO close to spring we can taste it, but the possibility of snow and frigid air threatens to keep us curled up inside under a blanket a little bit longer. The good news? That just means we can continue to add to our bookshelf without feeling bad about not being outside. But with e-books, hardcover releases, paperbacks and indie reads, sometimes finding a good new book can be overwhelming. Don’t worry, we’ve done the work for you and picked out the upcoming titles this month that you’re going to want to get our hands on. Here are 10 March releases any reader should definitely be watching out for: Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices, Cassandra Clare (Simon Teen,…
