A Deep Dive Into R.S. Grey

Posted December 6, 2019 by Stephanie in Discussion, Spotlight / 0 Comments

Guys, this past November was not only a great writing month for me, but it was also a great reading month. I read a total of 8 books, which is not really a whole lot in the scheme of things but I read 8 books during the month of NaNoWriMo. And what do they all have in common? All 8 books were written by R.S. Grey.

R.S. Grey is an author I first discovered in February earlier this year. I read her book Not So Nice Guy and I really enjoyed it. So much that I put quite a few of her books on my TBR. Well my friends, I’m happy to say that she is now an author that I want to read her books the second they become available. Her writing is engaging and funny and easy to delve into the world she creates. It was seriously so easy to binge read her books because she just captures you. Either from a funny moment or something serious happening. Her books definitely remind me of watching a romantic comedy movie.

I’ve also listened to the audiobooks during my driving commutes and the narrators do a great job as well. As soon as I read two of her books in November, I quickly knew that I was diving deep into the world of R.S. Grey and I want all of you to join me! A lot of the settings take place in a small town in Texas or the main characters are from there, etc. The main characters are relatable and funny and unique in their own ways. And R.S. Grey is not afraid to knock her characters down and I really liked how I felt like the main character could be a version of myself. That’s how relatable they can be.

I still have quite a few of her books to read so I’m only in the middle of this journey but I can guarantee you that the second R.S. Grey has another book published, I’m getting my grabby paws on it! So, who is with me? Who wants to take a deep dive into the world of R.S. Grey?!

The next one on my docket to read of hers, is her latest release:

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.And he wants me.

#SaveTimeless

Posted June 28, 2018 by Stephanie in Spotlight, Top Reasons / 1 Comment

Dana of DanaSquare and I are huge TV addicts and are always binge watching a show. This usually results in one of us telling the other they need to watch X or catch up on Y. One of those shows was Timeless.

Timeless has had a rocky road. After it’s first season it was cancelled but with fan support NBC decided to bring it back for a second season. And unfortunately after the second season, NBC has yet again cancelled this amazing show.

So, we’re putting together this list of reasons why we need to #SaveTimeless, find Timeless a new home and why you should start watching it, if you haven’t already!

5 Reasons We Feel You Need To Watch Timeless:

1. Every episode of Timeless takes place in a different pivotal moment in history (primarily American history in season 2) with an incredible detail to wardrobe and sets, but more importantly the show focuses on the stories of minorities in every episode. There is a heart to the writing that always pays mind to those stories that are forgotten in history books or down played.

2. Quite a few of the episodes have a huge impact. I remember when I was watching the episode where they go back to the days during the Women’s Suffrage and that episode had me in tears because it impacted me so much. And there are quite a few moments like that in this show.

3. It portrays intelligent and capable women who get the job done! And not only that but it’s also one of the most diverse casts ever!

4. THE SHIPS! Are you Team Lyatt (Lucy/Wyatt) or Lynn (Lucy/Flynn)? One thing is for sure we are Team Riya (Rufus/Jiya)! Dana is kinda leaning towards Lynn…I feel like there is something about his journal and the future that he’s not telling Lucy, plus Wyatt can be a jerk sometimes *cough end of season 2 cough*. Uhm… Stephanie is kind of in the same boat. As much as I love Lyatt…I also LOVE Lynn… maybe more so!!

5. The cliffhanger of Season 2… OMG. Guys, where they ended Season 2… there is SO much more for us to experience! I love where they left it off at and it makes you want so much more of the story! The writers have been amazing and deserve to tell us the rest of their story!
If you already watch and love Timeless, take the time to tweet about it with the hashtag #SaveTimeless to show your support to the show and hopefully encourage Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon to pick it up for a third season.

If you haven’t watched Timeless, you can catch it all on Hulu! We’re also thinking about doing a watchalong and you’re all invited to join us! We’ll post on twitter when we come up with dates for that!
