T5W: Children’s Books to Read As An Adult


Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme that was created and moderated by Lainey but is now hosted by Sam (not me). If you want to find out more about this group/feature or if you wanna join in on all this fun, you can visit the Goodreads group here!

This weeks topic is a blast from the past. Literally. Like #throwbackthursday has nothing on this topic which is all about children’s books that deserve to be revisited as we grow older. A caveat to this month’s topic is to try and stray away from Harry Potter, because well…it’s Harry Potter and literally can be applied to anything.

Did The Show Rise, Rise To The Occasion?

101. “Pilot”
Grade: C+

As a self-proclaimed theatre nerd, I was intrigued after hearing the plot for the new show Rise and was all about to give them my money after hearing that it was connected to those who worked on Hamilton. So to say I had high expectations for the premiere would be an understatement. Created by Jason Katmis (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), the show is based on the true events of a high school drama department in the working community of a rural town in Pennsylvania, where the football team is like the sacred cow and theatre is like your aunt’s famous duck pudding.  Continue reading “Did The Show Rise, Rise To The Occasion?”

Currently on Fictionally Sam…


Hello beautiful and wonderful people!

I’m just popping in from my reading hole to let y’all know what I’ve been up to story-telling wise! This month has been such a great story month so far that I feel like I am over my head with how many things there are to consume and fall in love with. But I am determined to fall in love and head over heels with as many great pieces of art that I can!

The 20 Questions Book Tag


I saw this tag over on several different blogs, especially the lovely Destiny @ Howling Libraries, and I thought why not join in on the fun?

U5dqnYndKb89RJVchhQFZB6hgai85B5_1680x84001. How many books are too many books in a series?

I think anything above 10 is a little excessive, but like everything else in life there are always exceptions. If the story is really good, and doesn’t feel like it’s dragging I wouldn’t mind it going on and on and on for forever.


2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I have a love/hate relationship with cliffhangers. If I have the next book next to me then I am okay will cliffhangers and am all for them. However, if I have to wait for the next book to come out, like with what happened with ACOMAF, then we have some serious issues. Cliff likes to play with my emotions and I just tend to not be okay with that. Continue reading “The 20 Questions Book Tag”


T5W: POC Female Characters


Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme that was created and moderated by Lainey but is now hosted by Sam (not me). If you want to find out more about this group/feature or if you wanna join in on all this fun, you can visit the Goodreads group here!

Y’all. Is it to soon to say that I am so excited to be able to do T5W again?! And this month’s topic are literally fire. FIRE. So just to get on into the fun, this week’s topic was a freebie week, meaning I get to choose the topic! And because this month is all about Women, as well as Thursday being International Woman’s Day I thought it would be appropriate to make this week’s topic centered around… you guessed it, women. However, I wanted to take it a step further and highlight books that feature female POC characters. Continue reading “T5W: POC Female Characters”


No Disclaimer Book Tag


So I was perusing YouTube as one does and came across this tag by Catalyst Reads where you basically talk about the things you hate and I thought “Hey. I hate a lot of things.” and then boom the decision to do this tag was made. As usual I wasn’t tagged but I am a rebel if nothing else, so of course I have to do it. Because I am a rebel. And I wanted to.

Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan [Review]

Baby Daddy

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Self-Published
Publication Date: February 27th 2018
Format: Ebook
Rating: fangirlstarsfangirlstarsfangirlstars

“We met in a trapped elevator.

Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.

I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?

At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.

After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.

But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.” —Goodreads
