Review of “Pretty Face” by Lucy Parker

Pretty Face is pretty fucking awesome.  There, I said it.  I first picked it up based on all the squeeing about Ms. Parker’s first book, Act Like It, which I am sad to say, I still have not read, despite said squeeing.  I don’t usually read books by authors I know are British and I’m …

Review of “Sleepless in Manhattan” by Sarah Morgan

After finishing The Diary of an Accidental Wallflower, I felt the need to dive into its sequel, The Spinster’s Guide to Scandalous Behavior, which is about 10x better than its predecessor.  Gone were all of the problems I had with the first book, but unfortunately, they were replaced by a new set of them. Lucy Westmore was …

Review of “The Diary of an Accidental Wallflower” by Jennifer McQuiston

I bought this book a while back when it was on sale for about $2, but never got around to reading it.  I finally decided it was time after giving up on “In the Waning Light,” which I was supposed to review for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge 2016.  While I’m glad I read …
