~Penny’s Rating: A- ~ I feel like I waited forever for this book to come out. I am so grateful to Heidi Cullinan for the ARC, because I don’t think I would have been able to take it if I had to wait all the way to April 8, 2014. For those of you who have managed to stay sane, [...]

Penny’s Rating for the Series: A+ ~I’ve been meaning to write something about this series for a while. Since the tale of Foster High is now finished, I thought it was time. By the way, this whole post is basically going to be a love letter to author John Goode, combined with me rehashing my own coming of age, so [...]

By Heidi Cullinan Penny’s Rating: A Happy Valentine’s Day All! In honor of the re-release of Book 2 in the Special Delivery Series which will be hitting shelves on March 4, 2014, I thought what could be better than a V-Day review with a little kink? FYI- this review contains mature content. I first read this novel back in 2012 [...]

Penny’s Rating: B  ~Book Blurb The weather outside is frightful, but this Minnesota northwoods cabin is getting pretty hot. Stylist Frankie Blackburn never meant to get lost in Logan, Minnesota, but his malfunctioning GPS felt otherwise, and a record-breaking snowfall ensures he won’t be heading back to Minneapolis anytime soon. Being rescued by three sexy lumberjacks is fine as a fantasy, but [...]

Penny’s Rating: C+ This is pretty good for a freebie! I haven’t ventured into historical het romance land recently, and I was pleasantly surprised. Publisher Description”Dear Cici and Father,” “I have come to Devon and married a duke. And I’m more tired and hungry than I have ever been in my life. Please let me come home.” Compromised and wedded [...]

By Heidi Cullinan ~Penny’s Rating: A~ Whenever I really love an author’s work, I get a little angsty before I read their latest and greatest, because I really want to love their new book as much as I love their other works. Heidi Cullinan tends to be pretty hardcore, and I usually freaking LOVE her work, but, when I heard [...]

UPDATE: October 21, 2013, It’s awesome. I read BAD IDEA the day it came out, and yeah, A rating, definitely worth a read. Loved it! Squeeeeeeeee! I am so freaking excited for this book, you have no idea! Here is the cover reveal for author Damon Suede’s Bad Idea. I know what I am doing on October 21st! Publisher Description: [...]

Penny’s Rating: A+ Note: If you have not read TJ Klune’s Bear, Otter, and the Kid (BOATK), go do that first. This is the sequel, and it is as amazing as BOATK, so if you haven’t already read Bear, Otter, and the Kid , go do that, then come back for this utter awesomeness. Publisher description: “Sequel to Bear, Otter, and the Kid [...]

Penny’s Rating: B If the ghost of Ayn Rand ever decided to write gay romance novels, they might go something like this. Welcome to the elite society of Atlanta. Where problems of oppression are solved by money and some kick-ass lawyering. Not only that, but insta-love exists, bad people get punished, and capitalism really works, even for kids who just [...]

Penny’s Rating: A Publisher Description: Danny is young, gay, and homeless. He lives in the park, preferring to avoid attention, but when thugs confront a stranger, Danny rushes to his rescue. He and the would-be victim, Harry, form a cautious friendship that deepens months later, when Harry persuades Danny to visit his home. Daring to believe he has found happiness, [...]

Here is a quick and (mostly) dirty list of all the books I read in 2012 that I gave a grade of A or higher, (or 5 star rating on Goodreads.com). I’ve divided these up by category as best I could, and each category is alphabetical by author. Some of these books are part of series, but it may be [...]

Penny’s Rating: B+ This is classic “Happy” Amy Lane. It is cuteness and light, and sunshine and puppy dogs, and steamy sex and mushy romance. It is a great read for a day when you need a well written happy read. On a side note: if you like m/m romance, and have yet to read any Amy Lane novels, I [...]

Penny’s Rating: C This is my first time reading anything in author Shannon Hale’s Austenland series, but it totally appeals to the Jane Austen obsessed nerd in me. The people in this book go on vacation to a historic estate in the English countryside, and proceed to dress up and act like people from… well, a Jane Austen novel, of [...]
