Hello hello hello there! How are we doing my lovely reading peeps? How was your march??
If your anything like me your wondering just where did all the time go?? Honestly how is it already April?!
Thankfully I can say last month was a total reading success! While I did read less books last month (a whopping total of 8 fabulous reads) I’m pleased to say the quality quite outranked the quantity…. because this month I was BLESSED by the bookish gods.
Seriously the book angels reached down and kissed me on the hand because the sheer books I read this month were nothing short of PERFECTION *chefs kiss* *chefs kiss*
On to the books!!!!
What I read this month:
Tattered Stars by Catherine Cowles – 4 stars –
This was such a good small town romance!!! I was not expecting to swoon this hard reading this!! The protectiveness in this book had my HEART melting like an ice cube left in the sun. I also loved the family members in the book and the family dynamics were cupcake level sweet and coffee level strong – so good!! I am wholly invested in this WHOLESOMENESS and need the next book!!
Pucked Off by Helena Hunting – 5 stars –
I LOVED THIS BOOK! The romance was so great in this! I loved how Poppy was a sports massage therapist and how her and Lance had a past when they were children. I honestly was not expecting this romance to be as sweet as it was! Lance treated poppy like she was a treasure and I adored the way they cared for one another in this!!! One of my favorite in the series so far!
Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt – 3 stars –
This one was a bit of a let down for me. I love Elizabeth Hoyt and I love her writing but this book just kind of felt like a reiteration of some of the other books in this series that I’ve read from her. The chemistry between the characters was great but I felt like I was zoning out during some of the plot bits. Still love this series though and I plan to continue reading it!
The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth – 5 stars –
AHHHH THIS BOOK WAS AN AMAZING TWISTY MESS AND I LOVED IT!! Its been awhile since I’ve read a thriller and this one did not disappoint. This book follows two broken marriages, flashbacks from the past, and broken family dynamic – plus throw in a cliff thats a local known suicide point and color me intrigued. The slow suspense in this was like a threadbare napkin unraveling and you just couldn’t help but pick at the threads until the whole thing came apart in your lap. So, SO good I could not stop reading this! Highly recommend if your a thriller fan!
Heartless by Elsie Silver – 5 stars –
OMG THIS BOOK HAS MY HEART!!!! I ADORED ADORED ADORED Cade!!!! The banter in this actually had me in stitches and not to mention this book was a spicy little snack I could not help devouring. I loved how caring Cade was towards his son and the bff/family interactions throughout! I’m obsessed with this series now and need all the other books ASAP.
It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover – 5 stars –
I surprisingly really liked this follow up to It Ends With Us. I felt like it was much lighter and while they’re wasn’t as much plot or things happening in this book I loved getting to know Atlas a little bit more in this. Plus the way he treated Lily was GOLDEN and I loved every interaction they had with one another. Super cute, super fast read! Kinda like an extended epilogue – but in the best way!
The Damaged by Tijan – 5 stars –
Ok full disclosure I did not remember a single. thing. from the first book. (which rarely happens to me if ever) that being said I kinda picked up this book on a whim and boy am I glad I did because this book was FANTASTIC. Like oh my god I was completely immersed and invested and pulled into this story like no other. First off Kash and Bailey have my whole entire scarred heart – because the absolute LOVE and power the two of them have over one another is addicting to consume. Not to mention the incredible depression/grief scenes in this had me aching and relating all at the same time. Super unique plot line, very fleshed out characters, and an underlying element of suspense that had me flipping pages like there was no tomorrow – fantastic, fantastic book!
The Revenge by Tijan – 5 stars –
After that cliff hanger you bet your butt I was ordering the final book ASAP. And thank god this one did not disappoint. If anything Kash and Baileys love for one another got even stronger and the family issues in this had me frustrated and tearing out my hair to no end!!! One of my favorite book couples I love love this series!!!
