Top Ten Books I Reviewed Before I Started A Book Blog

Within The Pages Of A Book is a relatively new blog, but my love for reading is not. Because of that, I have read and reviewed books on my lifestyle blog Avalon-Media on occasions, more because I have a hard time containing my excitement, or disappointment in a book to only myself, and anyone else in earshot. This book is a part of the Top Ten Tuesday Blog Hop, hosted by

romance novel, book review

There are not very many romance novels that make me laugh out loud. Giggle? Sure, but not laugh out loud, making the kids look at me, like I am weird, kind-a-laughing. It’s In His Arms managed to do just that. Now don’t get me wrong, this novel has many romantic, and steamy hot scenes as well.

Tea book, non-fiction review, book review

It is Hot Tea Month! Perfect for this cold weather we are having here, so today, I wanted to share with you fitting of this months theme: If you like hot tea (or any type of tea, actually), then I highly recommend this delightful tea book called Tea: A Recipe And Guidebook by Jenna Mars.

book review, romance, Leslie North

I received a copy of this book for free via Netgalley in return for an honest review I know, I am a little late in getting around to reviewing The Sheikh’s Christmas Baby, but just because it was Christmas themed, it was still a pretty hot novel. Another part of the Shadid Sheikhs Series Book series by Leslie North, this book as easy to read, entertaining and steamy as the

Book Review: Exes - A Second Chance Billionaire Romance Novel

I am going to start out by highlighting the couple little things., I did not like about Exes – starting with the ending. While it was sort of a closing, it was not exactly a direct answer to his question, and I am going to leave it at that because I don’t want to spoil the book. A different ending would have been more satisfying. What I also did not like
