Hello, hello, hello my lovely reader friends!!! How are we doing this month?? How is the reading going??
I don’t know about you but this month went by WAY too fast!? Where did the time GO?!?
If your like me then this month has been nothing but reading and work *sigh* but that being said I managed to read some amazing books!??! And I reconnected with one of my favorite authors of all time and I can’t wait to continue to read more from her (I’m also highly tempted to buy all of her books… someone please take my wallet away from me).
On to the books *claps*…..
What I Read This Month:
The Resolution of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen – 5 stars –
THIS SERIES. It is a gem. A piece of my heart. I just love how layered and complex both Callie and Kayden are. I also adore how they continue to struggle through their traumas throughout the books, and you get to see their internal and external struggles, the differences in family dynamics, and the way they love each other so completley throughout. One of my favorite series of all time. I love these books.
Rule by Jay Crownover – 5 stars – my review
I LOVED this book!!!! Rule is one of my favorite types of characters. He is honest, he is raw, talented, not afraid to speak his mind and I loved how the relationship grew between him and Shaw. Throw in a tattoo parlor, artistic breakthroughs, a suspenseful plot line and I’m in. So good.
Devils Daughter by Lisa Kleypas – 4 stars –
I really like Lisa Kleypas and this book was no exception. Really strong romance. I loved how she was a widow with a little boy and how well he treated her son and the relationship/ family they grow between the three of them. I also really enjoyed how this included elements about farming and how to properly tend her estate. I thought it added another layer to the storyline and I really enjoyed the slow burn that unfolded between these two!!
Queen of Myth and Monsters by Scarlett St.Clair – 4 stars –
This was good. I liked the first book in this series and am intrigued to see where this goes. I liked Adrian and Isolde but I don’t know, this one doesn’t stand out too much for me. However I probably will read the last one in this series. I need closure.
For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten – 5 stars –
This was GOOD. I really enjoyed this. Kind of a red riding hood meets beauty and the beast retelling. Loved the romance between Red and Eammon!! Eammon is one of my favorite characters I’ve read in a fantasy romance and I loved how patient and protective he was over Red. I also adored the forest magic in this book and was really intrigued with the dual POV of Red and her twin sister. Solid fantasy romance debut.
Jet by Jay Crownover – 4 stars –
Ahhhhh I love this series!!!! This series is just bad boy goodness wrapped into one and I cannot get enough. Jet is a heavy metal rockstar and Ayden is trying to runaway from her past self and become someone worth loving. She’s ashamed of her dirty country roots and wants to become someone she can be proud starting back at in the mirror. They’re romance is great. Sexy, fun, angsty, and addicting I could not get enough!!! I already ordered the rest of the series lol.
Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas – 5 stars –
I love this book. This book broke me apart before super gluing me back together. It tested my limits and touched me in way that made my heart bleed. I loved how the two were pen pals and they’re friendship grew from having someone to turn to where they could be the versions of themselves they were afraid would be destroyed in their realities. They’re romance is electric and I love how he pushes her to become the version of her she wanted to be in her letter in real life. Amazing book.
Little Lies by H. Hunting – 4 stars –
I love Helena Hunting! I adored, adored, adored this romance. I love how this story touched on both Lavender and Kodiak struggles with anxiety and how they both struggled with it in different ways. Hers stemming from childhood trauma whereas his stemmed from academic pressure, family, and personal pressure he puts on himself. They both break, both rely on each other in unhealthy ways, and have to learn to mature and deal with their pasts in a way that is healthy enough for the both of them to overcome their obstacles – could not put this book down!!! Amazing.
Sparrow by LJ Shen – 5 stars –
AHHHHH THIS. BOOK. I LOVED IT. Just want a Troy Brennan in my life. That is all. Thats the review.
