Mini Book Review: Beard in Mind – Penny Reid

Title: Beard in Mind
Series: Winston Brothers #4
Author: Penny Reid
Publication Date: August 1st, 2017
Genre: Contemporary; Romance
Format: ebook (538 pages)
Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/3.5 stars

BIMGoodreads Synopsis:

All’s fair in love and auto maintenance.

Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.
Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.
She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words. 

Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.

The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean missing out on what matters most.

Down the TBR Hole #1 (1-10)

I felt like doing a new book tag/meme/thing. I see this one around a lot and I think it’s a perfect way to clean out your TBR. This tag was created by Lost in a Story, and I’ll probably just do it whenever I feel like it because this blog has no schedule anymore…

So, I’ll go on my Goodreads TBR, organise it from ascending order, and work my way through the list in sets of ten novels to decide whether to keep them on my TBR or not. Simple!

I currently have 550 books on my TBR and that’s a pretty overwhelming amount for me, so I look forward to removing some books  🙂

Confess TV Adaptation (Mini) Review!

Soooo I’m doing a mini TV show review because my blogging schedule is shot to shit and I figured why not write my thoughts on this Confess adaptation since I have nothing else to write about…

Untitled-1

I haven’t read Confess but I saw the show advertised on Twitter a while back, so I took a night off from uni applications and watched this show. I watched them all in one sitting, they’re surprisingly short – 7 episodes long, each around 22 minutes long.

So here’s a quick review!

Contains spoilers of both the TV show and the book!

Some People Don’t Want to Read, and That’s OK

So… This is something which I think about every now and then, but it’s late and I can’t sleep so I’m writing down my thoughts. I’ve been thinking about some of the mentalities I’ve seen from some book bloggers and literature lovers in regards to people who don’t like to read. And they kinda annoy me…

This isn’t aimed at anyone in particular, I’m just bringing to light something I notice every now and then online
