Monday Musings: No New Books Challenge

Musings of A Romance Junkie


I admit, I am a 1-click addict. Dammit, if I see a book that I want to read, I click it! The only problem is, I never make the time to read the damn book! As of the time of this posting, I have 112 books in my TBR. This does not include the ARCs I have been bequeathed by all the fabulous authors I’ve met. That is where I am most ashamed.

I have authors who have gifted me books from almost a year ago, and I have not yet read them. And for this,


I plan to remedy this because I feel like a heap of shit for not reading and reviewing these ARCs, and I’m going to do something about it-starting in October. No seriously, I’m not saying this because I’m procrastinating, but because I need time to wrap up everything else I’ve got on the burner…

You know, I’m a visual and a lazy reader, meaning when I take on a new story, I need to already have an image of what these characters look like, and when I saw this bearded honey dip, I was like YUSSSSSSSSSS. I don’t even care what the story is about cause he is stuck in my head lmao. Okay, seriously, Perri Forrest is such a diverse writer. Her work spans genres, and you never know what to expect from one book to the next. Enough yapping, let’s meet Rush.

Guest post and book spotlight with D. M. Miller

Rivka and Ivory

I’m so pleased to be introducing you to author D. M. Miller, who is a new friend of mine. Her debut novel, The Religion of the Heart was published last month (July) and we wish her every success on her publishing journey!

She wrote us a guest post that offers an unique perspective on the faith aspect of fiction and I hope you find it as thought-provoking as I did.

    Guest post from D. M. Miller

Call me crazy, but I believe in writing with a purpose. Lighthearted stories to pass the time can be entertaining and may even be just what the doctor ordered if you’re looking to escape whatever personal drama may be going on in your life. Actually, that’s why they call it “escapism.”

But then there is another type of reader, who wants to read something meaningful, a book that has something to say and that…

Series Spotlight: Love’s Culture by Angelia Vernon Menchan

Musings of A Romance Junkie

LC Trilogy

You ever read a book by an author, and you’re just so taken with the story, that you’re compelled to stalk reach out to them and show them love? Yeah, that’s how I am with this lady right here. I affectionately refer to Mrs. M as “Auntie” because once you befriend her, she becomes fam yo. And she drops pearls every day on her Facebook wall. Antyway…Angelia is a serial writer. She has about umpteen of them (lol), but my fave so far is the Love’s Culture series.

I love this series for so many reasons, mainly though because she shows us that interracial love just isn’t black and white (literally and figuratively). Love’s Culture not only shows that love transcends race, but also culture, economic status, and religious beliefs as well. It’s not an in-your-face, preachy message, but wonderfully-written, episodic-like arcs that feature a myriad of colorful (again literally…
