Swoon-Worthy YA Romances You Need to Pick Up! (Slideshow)(Recommendation Nation)

Okay, I know Valentines day was a week ago and everyone has already made their list of favorite romances, but I want to do it to.

And to be extra special, I did it in slideshow form. Because I clearly have way too much free time.

Romance plot lines can make or break a book. The majority of YA books include one, but they’re not always great. So, I made a list of YA books with adorable romances (spanning a few different genres) that are perfect if you’re looking to be swept off your feet!

Reading and reviewing every Tessa Dare novel

Reading & Reviewing Every Tessa Dare Book, In One Month (Part 1)(Mini-reviews)

Yes, you heard me right.

On January 5, 2020, I began my mission to read every Tessa Dare book. Now, I didn’t actually have that as a goal when I picked up Do You Want To Start A Scandal, but once I started, I couldn’t stop. And now we’re here.

First, the truth:

  • I haven’t read every Tessa Dare book yet. I actually plan on making this a two-part series. This is part 1, where I talk about the 14 of her books I have read. I will add a part 2 once I finish the rest.
  • I had already read 3 of her books before starting this, but I do plan on rereading them for part 2!
  • All the books in part 1 were read in a month, but there might be a break between part 1 and part 2. Doing this made me fall a bit behind in my TBR, so I need to take some time to catch up before continuing.
  • I will be including any novellas that are sold separately from anthologies.
  • There are a lot of books to talk about, so the reviews won’t be my normal, full length reviews. Instead, they’ll be quick mini reviews. I may make full length reviews for some of the books eventually, but not today.

I’m sorry for the clickbait-y title, but if you can forgive me, we should probably get started on those reviews!

Victorious Songs As Books

Top 10 Victorious Songs as Books (Recommendation Nation)

Since Victorious has hit Netflix, everyone has been binging it. Myself included. And what have I learned from it? Well, it was definitely a little more problematic than I remembered, but damn, that soundtrack is full of bops.

And because of that, I’ve had the music stuck in my head in a loop for the past couple of weeks. So, I thought, why not capitalize on it and share my 10 favorite Victorious songs, and recommend a book to go with each them!!

I will admit, some of these were a lot easier than others, but, if you’re looking for something to read once you’ve finished your Victorious marathon, I’ve got a few recommendations for you. Also, be sure to read to the end because I’ve linked to a spotify playlist of all of these songs for you to listen to!!
