613. RT Rewind: May 1994 Reviews!

Amanda and I are traveling to May 1994 and taking a look at the book reviews in this edition of RT Rewind!

What grade did Dreaming of You receive? There’s so much Fabio, a telepathic cat, blaming tornadoes for murder, and a … Continue reading 613. RT Rewind: May 1994 Reviews!

The Rec League: Sarah, Plain & Tall

The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old book

This request comes from Grace. Thanks, Grace! I have a weirdly specific rec request. I guess you could just call it mail order brides, but more specifically: Sarah Plain & Tall vibes? I’ve been re-watching the Sarah Plain & Tall movies with my grandma lately. I’ve loved the book & movies all my life and they were VERY formative in becoming a romance addict, but being from the kids’ POV, we only see an outside … Continue reading The Rec League: Sarah, Plain & Tall

Links: Fish, Coraline, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.

Welcome back to Links! I can slowly start to feel the allergies. I’ve been good about taking Flonase recently, so I haven’t had my usual symptoms of sneezing and sinus pressure. I have had some severely dry eyes, which are new for me. I did buy some eyedrops; does anyone have a good hack to getting the drops in on the first try? May is looking busy for my social calendar and ending with a … Continue reading Links: Fish, Coraline, & More

Books on Sale: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow & More

RECOMMENDED: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow is $2.99! Carrie reviewed this one and gave it a B+:

Something happened in her past, though (you find out towards the end of the book what it is) and her nascent conscience kicked into life. So acting as her own moral bulwark, she has The … Continue reading Happy Medium by Sarah Adler

HaBO: Billionaire Surfer

This HaBO is from Colleen, who is hoping to find this romance: Ack! I have been searching for this book and am beginning to think I made it up. Okay, so the heroine works for a financial risk/management company and has traveled to South Africa (I think) with her boss to pitch to the hero. They want him to use their company. He is a risk-taking surfer, so the boss learns surfing terms and it … Continue reading HaBO: Billionaire Surfer
