Review: Chubby & Charming by Mary E. Thompson

Chubby & Charming

A charming man could be the icing on one chubby woman’s cupcake. Mandy likes her life. She’s happy. She has great friends, a good job, a happy life. She has it all, even if it comes with a few extra pounds. But Mandy doesn’t mind. She knows who she is and she likes cupcakes too much to worry about the weight. But a stroke of luck, and a phone call to her customer service job, brings Xander Carlson into her life. He’s everything she’s not. Attractive, built, and sexy as all hell. And for some reason he wants to meet Mandy. In person. In real life. Mandy isn’t sure what to make of Xander’s insistence that he wants her, but she drops her guard and lets him in. Juggling her new relationship, a possible promotion, and the coworker from hell, Mandy knows it can’t all end up happily ever after. Especially if Xander ends up being the man she feared he was – someone who judges her by her weight.

Artgerm Artbooks

Not sure I ever conveyed how much I love Artgerm. His artwork is so beautiful and I feel like it doesnt oversexualize his female subjects.

I am proud to say I finally own some of his artbooks. I wish I could put onto words how much that thrills me. Not to mentioned they’re signed. I’m dying, guys.

My Bookshelf: [un]Divine by Ayme Sotuyo

My Bookshelf is a feature in which I showcase items I personally feel are special on my bookshelf. Whether it be book related, a signed copy, special edition, or other such things, they are items I want to specifically showcase. 


There are 2 things about me I am not sure I have ever properly conveyed. 1)I am obsessed with artbooks. 2) I adore online/original/indie comics.

One such comic that I adore is [un]Divine by Ayme Sotuyo. I actually found it through Kickstarter when I stumbled across her side comic, Hot Day. After reading through the description, I backed it before going to the original comic and bringing the whole thing in one day (it had all over 300 pages at the time.) Read More

DNFs of 12/31/19

I am a bit of an anomaly in the reading community because I have zero problem DNFing a book. There are multiple reasons I do so, but mainly the bottom line is that I wasn’t enjoying them and I have zero time to waste on something I don’t enjoy. Because my curiosity usually kills me, I typically still skim through or at least read the end. However, I don’t waste time reading the whole novel.

This is my list of stories that I couldn’t read 100% this week.

1. Thunder Thighs by Evie Mitchell – A $0.99 buy that tells you exactly what you’re getting. While I was interested in a plus size romp, the inta-love (more like lust) was not my cup of tea and it was pretty aggressive in this novella. I also didn’t feel the chemistry that is supposed to be explosive between the leads, and the thunder thighs/viking aspect is thrown at the reader a lot for such a short read. It does have a HEA and the erotic scenes are pretty good though.
