Last month on I Heart Romance & YA
Apparently, May was the month with all the drama! Drama in my reading (I read a lot of emotional books this month, it’s not even funny!) and also drama in Romancelandia. And this drama is not the good kind, mind you. I also want to say that I can’t believe I’ve read a lot of legalese this month. I have to admit that I have been interested and also following the Trademark fiasco that happened in the last few weeks – and it still is happening!
Anyway, I am loving the random books that I have been picking up last month. I have been emotionally drained and crying and just emotionally touched by all the books. PLEASE GIVE ME MOAAARRRR!!!
Nobody Does it Better and The Wall of Winnipeg and Me still remain the longest read & listened to book this month.
I know this is a little weird but I have a LOT of 5-star books read so far! I have also included a few of my reread books under 5 stars because they are still 5 stars!
I think I need to up my review and discussion game this month. I guess I’m in a mini blog slump again so… Anyway, I have been reading and also rereading a lot of books this month and it is all good! At 64 books read before the half of the year?! I can’t believe myself!
WOW, Pushing the Limits was amazing! It felt so real and emotional and everything a romance should be!
The Year We Fell Down was another AMAZING book I read this month!

I didn’t go to the theaters last month! WOW! I know, I know. There is a reason and the reason is – LOVE! Actually, I’m waiting for Pierre to come home so we can watch the new movies again.
I watched The Matchmaker’s Playbook and also The Toys that Made Us! The nostalgia while watching this TV series is so good! Also, I think I need to watch more movies!
How did May treat you? Any good books you read?

That is terrific, all those books read!! I must check out Tessa Bailey, they look really good. I watched a good movie this month-however this is with older actors-Al Pacino and Christopher Walken (two of my favorites) in Stand Up Guys- I loved it! Hope you have a terrific June!
Thanks, Joann! I read a lot of Tessa Bailey’s books last month!

I don’t read romance, but I’ve been kind of following that trademark nonsense. It’s all very crazy. I’m glad you’re reading so many 5-star books. Have a great June!

I know! It’s all so crazy! But really it’s an awesome thing that it broke out and now everybody is aware.
Last month was awesome for 5-star reads! OMG!

I love all your pretty graphics in these posts. The Toys that Made Us looks like a fun show—I hadn’t heard of that.

I am such a fan of the Ivy Years. Those were my gateway Bowen books, and Corey is still one of my all-time favorite heroines. Katie McGarry is another go-to for me. I always enjoy her books. They tend to be a little grittier than my norm, but always so wrought with emotion. The Toys That Made Us has me all sorts of intrigued. I might have to check that out. You are killing your backlist challenge. I am all sorts of jealous.
Yes! I am going to be reading the series!
The Toys that Made Us is such a fun docuseries! Nostalgia at its finest!

I have to read Pushing the Limits based on your recommendation. I love it when authors can make me feel so much while reading. Going to see if it’s at my library now.
Ohh, tell me how you like it when you’re done, Danielle! I really love it when my reviews get people to pick up a book!
