Bitsy's Books

Note: I'm uploading my books from Goodreads and since there are like 200+ it's going to take awhile. The uploading seems a bit wonky too, so hang with me as I fix things. Also there may be spoilers until I can make all the appropriate tags.


I'm an ex-English Major who, sick of reading classics after college, decided to read all the trashy books I didn't before because I was too snobby. Since graduating, I've entertained myself with comics, YA, and romance novels, finding out they can not only be decently written, but superbly written. I've since recovered from my classics aversion, but I'm now more open-minded reader willing to read from any genre. If a book has kick-ass heroines and/or witty banter and/or takes place in a different time or place (including fantasy settings), I will most likely fall in love with it. My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Shakespeare, E.M. Forster, Meljean Brook, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hartman, Catherynne M. Valente, and Aliette de Bodard.

Holiday Sparks - Shannon Stacey 3.5 out of 5 StarsChloe Burke has returned to the small town where she grew up for Christmas to house-sit for her parents. When she accedently blows a fuse, the hot electrician she calls, Scott Quinn, was a nerdy kid from high school. Unable to hide their attraction to each other, they decide to have a fling over the holidays, but we all know how that will work out.Holiday Sparks is a fun novella with likable characters and a cute set-up. Stacey's voice feels young and modern, befitting her characters' ages. While not overly memorable (though Scott is one tall drink of water), Holiday Sparks is a cozy enjoyable read.
