Random Ramblings:  I just don’t get it…

  I just don’t get it…?   I just don’t get why authors / publishers / promo companies / agents give unedited review copies to reviewers.   I’ve been contemplating writing this post for a few weeks now.  Do you know what has been bugging the heck out of me lately?  Receiving unedited or pre-beta read ARC’s.  For awhile there the quality of review copies was pretty good.  You may come across a few spelling mistakes now and then but most […]

Random Ramblings: Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer?

Random Ramblings:  Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer?

  Am I a Blogger or a Reviewer? AND Do I even want to be a Blogger or a Reviewer anymore?   Why is blogging not fun anymore?   Of late, I’ve been asking myself this question more and more.  There is part of me that has lost the enjoyment of sharing my opinions and thoughts.  Blogging for me didn’t start out about how many followers I had or likes on a post.  I just liked getting my thoughts and […]

Random Ramblings: Why I struggle with New Adult Romance

Random Ramblings:  Why I struggle with New Adult Romance

  New Adult Romance – why this genre doesn’t always work for me.   I think I’ve finally cracked the reason why some New Adult Romances don’t work for me.  At first, I thought it was because I didn’t like a reminder of my silly and reckless years.  Then, I thought it was the conscious recklessness.  I knew it probably had to do with getting old and not finding their hi-jinx appealing anymore.  But, I think I have now cracked […]

Random Ramblings:  I read for *MY* pleasure.

  I read for MY pleasure.   Hello!! It’s been a wee while since I’ve done a Random Ramblings but I’ve stored up enough stuff that I HAD to put my thoughts out to the world.  This post will be me rambling on about what’s going on in the reading world at the moment.   First and foremost, I read for my pleasure.  I started to review the books I was reading because I wanted to get my thoughts and […]

Stacey is Sassy’s 2016 on Goodreads.

Stacey is Sassy’s 2016 on Goodreads.

2016 on Goodreads   2016 – What an absolutely AWESOME year for reading romance. I’ve swooned, blushed, shuddered, shook and stamped my foot in righteous indignation. 2016 has been a year for finding new and interesting stories, stepping out of my comfort zone and sticking to my guns by avoiding books that tested my boundaries and beliefs. Each to their own and all that jazz…I know what I like and 2016 was the year to be reminded to read for […]

💙 Best of the Best Romance Reads – 16 for 2016 💙

  Stacey is Sassy’s Top 10… (and a few more for good luck) BEST OF THE BEST ROMANCE READS 16 FOR 2016…   It has been an awesome year for reading romance.  I originally intended to do my top 10 reads for the year, but it somehow grew to 16 of my favourite books for 2016 (and even then, stopping at 16 was a struggle).  These books have rocked my world, left me pondering or wondering and slammed me with […]

Random Ramblings:  I feel it coming…

  I feel it coming…a sore throat, sniffles and more. This post is going to be short today as I’m feeling a wee bit under the weather.  Scratchy throat, really lethargic and weepy eyes.  If I just let my body rest it should all be fine.   I feel it coming…HOLIDAYS!! There are 33 days until we head to the coast for our annual holidays…AND I CAN’T WAIT!!  But…we have to get through the last term of school first.  My boys […]

Random Ramblings…Life goes on and I’m smiling.

  Life goes on… So, I shared my post last week about how reading and reviewing had left me stressed, sad and unsatisfied.  It’s amazing what a difference a week can make.  Thank you to all the lovely readers, bloggers and authors who took the time to chat and check in with me to see if I was OK.  Honestly, in MY life, there is really no excuse to not be OK.  I have an awesome family, have everything I […]

Random Ramblings:  Sassy admits – I’m a FRAUD!!

  Guess What?  I lied… Blogging, reading and reviewing do not make me happy…  at the moment.   I think it’s been coming for awhile but this week has pushed me over the edge.  I’m not a very tolerant person at the best of times but when I start my day dreading turning on my kindle, it’s time to change things up.      My first step to finding my happy place – I’m going to try to avoid or use […]

Review:  ♥ Fighting Chance ♥ by Victoria Paige

  Fighting Chance (Misty Grove #1) By Victoria Paige   Possessive and bossy…NICE!! I really enjoyed Fighting Chance. I’m going to keep this review pretty short (for me) because I really think Fighting Chance will be enjoyed more knowing as little as possible. Firstly, I have to admit that I was completely confused at the beginning. I was scratching my head trying to work out who was who, what they do, what they are and how they do it, was […]
