Monthly Reads: October 2019

Posted November 5, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 8 Comments

Casee: October was a pretty pathetic month for me. I only read five books and that included one reread. Here’s hoping that November is a better reading month for me.

Live For You by Michele Mills | 2.5 out of 5
Drowning to Breathe by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Where Lightning Strikes by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4 out of 5
Hold on to Hope by A.L. Jackson | 4.5 out of 5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (reread) | 5 out of 5 (every day, all day)

My favorite read of the month, hands down was Hold on to Hope. I adore that book. I couldn’t get enough of Evan and Frankie Leigh. My least favorite was Live For You by Michele Mills. It was just over the top, even for a dystopian. Like way over.

Holly: I had intended to read a lot more than I did, but the month kind of got away from me. I finished 18 books.

Silence for the Dead by Simone St. James (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
The Other Side of Midnight by Simone St. James (audio) | 4 out of 5
Shopping for a Billionaire by Julia Kent (audio) | DNF
Heartbreaker by Linda Howard (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (reread) | 5 out of 5
Heart Thief by Robin D. Owens (audio) (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Heart Fate by Robin D. Owens (audio) (reread) | 4 out of 5
Heart Change by Robin D. Owens (audio) (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Heart Choice by Robin D. Owens (audio) (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Angel in a Devil’s Arms by Julie Anne Long | 4 out of 5
Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley | 4 out of 5
Heart Sight by Robin D. Owens (audio) (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Warrior Fae Trapped by K.F. Breene (audio) | 4 out of 5
Warrior Fae Princess by K.F. Breene (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
The Gamble by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.25 out of 5
The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare (audio) | 4.25 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was Silence for the Dead by Simone St. James. It was just the book I was looking for. Honorable mentions go to The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare and The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith. I enjoyed both (and the narrators, as well). My least favorite was Warrior Fae Princess by K.F. Breene. It wasn’t a bad book, but it didn’t compare to the other books in the series.

Rowena: October was a busy month for me at work and at home but I still managed to get some reading done. I read 13 books and I counted Saving Grace twice because I read it twice. I love that book so much that I read it at the beginning of the month and at the end of the month to prepare for our team review. Man, I love that book.

Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 5 out of 5
The Wedding (Laird’s Fiancees #2) by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 5 out of 5
Moonlighter (The Company #1) by Sarina Bowen (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5
The Bride (Laird’s Fiancees #1) by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 4 out of 5
The Bromance Book Club (The Bromance Book Club #1) by Lyssa Kay Adams (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Huge Deal (21 Wall Street #3) by Lauren Layne (Re-Read) (Audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5
Marriage on Madison Avenue (The Central Park Pact #3) by Lauren Layne (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5
Blitzed (The Play Book #3) by Alexa Martin (eARC) | 3 out of 5
Four Days of You and Me by Miranda Kenneally (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (eBook) | 5 out of 5
Getting Played (Getting Some #2) by Emma Chase (Audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to Moonlighter by Sarina Bowen and Getting Played by Emma Chase. Honorable mentions go out to The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams and Four Days of You and Me by Miranda Kenneally. All of these books were fabulous reads and I can’t wait for everyone to read them. My least favorite read of the month goes to Blitzed by Alexa Martin. I wanted to love it but it was too slow in parts and I wasn’t as connected to Brynn and Maxwell the way that I was with TK and Poppy and that bummed me out.

Monthly Reads: September 2019

Posted October 2, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 9 Comments

Casee: After a really great reading month August was for me, I had high hopes for myself for September. Alas, it wasn’t to be. I read/listened to nine book in September.

Follow Me Back by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Lead Me Home by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4 out of 5
Lost to You by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4 out of 5
Lethal Nights by Lora Leigh | 4 out of 5
Take This Regret by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
If Forever Comes by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Die For You by Michele Mills | 4 out of 5
Kill For You by Michele Mills | 4.25 out of 5
A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4 out of 5

As you can see, I listened to a lot of A.L. Jackson. My favorite book of the month was If Forever Comes by A.L. Jackson, followed closely by Kill For You by Michele Mills.

Holly: September was a sad, sad reading month for me. I had so many things going on I just couldn’t concentrate. I finished 9 books, and the majority were re-reads.

The Secret by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Ransom by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio) | 2.75 out of 5
The Wedding by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Honor’s Splendour by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio)| 4 out of 5
Now You See Her by Linda Howard (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Selkies are a Girl’s Best Friend by Molly Harper (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
Death Knell by Hailey Edwards (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane (audio) | 4 out of 5
First Contact by Kat Green (audio) | 1.5 out of 5

My favorite new book of the month was Selkies Are a Girl’s Best Friend by Molly Harper, with an honorable mention to Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane. My least favorite was First Contact by Kat Green.

Rowena: It’s been an okay reading month for me, considering all of the personal stuff that went down in the last couple of months in my family. My Dad is finally out of the hospital and whatever has been bugging him the last few months seems to be doing a lot better so I’m not so worried all the time about him and that’s a good thing. I managed to get some reading in while taking my turn at the hospital, while sitting with him at follow up appointments and just on my own so that makes me happy.

Here’s what I read last month:

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt (Audiobook) | 1.5 out of 5
Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane (eARC) | 4.5 out of 5
Love on Lexington Avenue (The Central Park Pact #2) by Lauren Layne (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
No Judgments (Little Bridge Island #1) by Meg Cabot (eARC) | 3.25 out of 5
Heiress Gone Wild (Dear Lady Truelove #4) by Laura Lee Guhrke (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Bringing Down the Duke (A League of Extraordinary Women #1) by Evie Dunmore (eBook) | 4 out of 5
Shadow Music (Highland Lairds #3) by Julie Garwood (eBook) | 4 out of 5
We Met in December by Rosie Curtis (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5
The Secret (Highland Lairds #1) by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 4.25 out of 5
Ransom (Highland Lairds #2) by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 4.5 out of 5
The Play (Briar U #3) by Elle Kennedy (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
The Prize by Julie Garwood (eBook) (Re-read) | 4.25 out of 5
10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston (eARC) | 4 out of 5

My favorite reads of the month go to Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane and The Play (Briar U #3) by Elle Kennedy. Both books were fantastic and I cried during Don’t You Forget About Me and swooned at every turn in The Play. Great reads!

My least favorite read of the month goes to Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec and Andi Arndt. The heroine got on my nerves. I think her quirkiness was supposed to be cute and funny but I didn’t get it. She was too old to be that naive and I rolled my eyes all the way to San Diego with every chapter. I’m not the audience for that one and it bummed me out because I thought it would be super cute. Oh well.

Posted September 3, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 7 Comments

Casee: Holy crap. I read 21 books in August. I blame Meghan March and A.L. Jackson. I listened to quite a few audiobooks. 15 to be exact. That definitely upped my read count.

Dark Illusion by Christine Feehan | 4.25 out of 5
Pieces of Us by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4 out of 5
Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson (audio) | 4.25 out of 5.

I was really disappointed that I had to DNF Lies by Kylie Scott. I had high hopes for that book. That was my least favorite of the month for sure. Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson was my favorite book in August. I really, really liked that one a lot. Close second is Dark Illusion by Christine Feehan.

Holly: I really wanted August to be a better month than July, but life got in the way (as it tends to do). I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to. I managed to read 25 books, but 2 were DNF’s, 1 I read twice and most of the rest were read toward the latter part of the month.

Bayou Born by Hailey Edwards | 4.25 out of 5
Bone Driven by Hailey Edwards | 3.75 out of 5
Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep | 4.25 out of 5
Sweet Heat by Zuri Day | 3.25 out of 5

Soaring by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3 out of 5
Broken Dove by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
Complicated by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook (audio) (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Down London Road by Samantha Young (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Castle Hill by Samantha Young (reread) | 4 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (reread) | 5 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely, one of the best contemporary romances I’ve read this year. Honorable mentions go to Bayou Born by Hailey Edwards (I really enjoyed the fresh take on UF and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series) and Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep.

My least favorite was Good Girl by Lauren Layne. If I could set that book on fire without melting my Kindle, I totally would.

Rowena: August was a really busy month for me. I got a promotion at work and I’m still working through trying to figure out a system for me to juggle work stuff and personal/blog stuff since I usually blog from work. I haven’t quite managed to figure it out but I’m sure I will soon, I’m close. My Dad was also admitted for emergency surgery for his dialysis port last week so I’ve been juggling a new position at work and being at the hospital to deal with my Dad’s medical issues since our US Healthcare system is a total piece of shit. I didn’t read loads this month because I’ve been emotionally exhausted for most of the month.

Here’s what I read in August:

The Wallflower Wager (Girl Meets Duke #3) by Tessa Dare (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely (Audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5
The Kingpin of Camelot (A Kinda Fairytale #3) by Cassandra Gannon (Audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
The Duchess in His Bed (Sins for All Seasons #5) by Lorraine Heath (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) by Meljean Brook (eBook) | 4 out of 5
Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart (eBook) | 3.75 out of 5
Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy #4) by Ilona Andrews (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
Kill the Queen (Crown of Shards #1) by Jennifer Estep (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely. That book was so good. I adored the romance, the hero, the heroine and her relationship with the hero’s kids. This was the single Dad romance that I’ve been wanting for a long time now.

My least favorite read of the month goes to Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart and it’s not because I didn’t enjoy the book. I just enjoyed it less than the other books that I read.

Monthly Reads: July 2019

Posted August 5, 2019 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 11 Comments

The end of summer is almost upon us and the end of the year is right behind that. Goodness gracious, time needs to slow down. We still have so many hot damn books to read. The month of July was filled with lots of fun in the sun and loads of books! Here’s how we did in the month of July.

Casee: Thank Gawd for audiobooks. If I hadn’t listened to books in July, I would have read a measly three books. I don’t even know how that’s possible. I read a total of eight books, which is pretty sad.

Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley | 4 out of 5
Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley | 4 out of 5
Complicated by Kristen Ashley (audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Hard Sell by Lauren Layne (audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Wild Like the Wind by Kristen Ashley | 4.25 out of 5
How to Date Your Dragon by Molly Harper (audiobook) | 3.75 out of 5
Huge Deal by Lauren Layne (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson | 3.5 out of 5
Black Sheep by Meghan March (audiobook) | 3.75 out of 5

My favorites of the month were Complicated by Kristen Ashley and Hard Sell by Lauren Layne. I enjoyed all the books I read in July, so I don’t have a least favorite for the month.

Holly: I started out the month really strong, so I set an unofficial goal to read 1 book each day in July. Unfortunately life got in the way and I wasn’t able to do that, but I still managed 22, so I’m not complaining. Much.

Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan (SRC) | 3.75 out fof 5
Games of the Heart by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
The Duke of Shadows by Meredith Duran (SRC) | 3.5 out of 5
Beginner’s Luck by Kate Clayborne | 3 out of 5
Daisy’s Back in Town by Rachel Gibson (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson (audio) | 2.5 out of 5
The Duchess War by Courtney Milan (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Down London Road by Samantha Young (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews | 4 out of 5
Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 2.5 out of 5
Fantastical by Kristen Ashely (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Midnight Soul by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.25 out of 5
Untamed Delights by Suzanne Wright | 3.75 out of 5
The Whole 30: The Official 30 Day Guide by Melissa Hartwig | 4 out of 5
Wait No More by Stephanie Nicole Norris | 3 out of 5
Big Rock by Lauren Blakely (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
Mister O by Lauren Blakely (audio) | 4 out of 5
Complicated by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
How to Date Your Dragon by Molly Harper (reread) (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Huge Deal by Lauren Layne (SRC) | 4 out of 5
Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakley (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
Falling Into Bed with a Duke by Lorraine Heath (audio) | 3.75 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was The Duchess War by Courtney Milan. It started out a bit slow, but I ended up loving the shit out of that book. My least favorite was Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson. It just didn’t work for me.

Rowena: July wasn’t as good a reading month as the start of the month indicated. I started the month on a roll but then toward the middle, I lost interest in everything and got busy but things certainly picked up again in the end so it wasn’t a complete embarrassment for me. Here’s what I read:

Storm Cursed (Mercy Thompson #11) by Patricia Briggs (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Wolf Rain (Psy-Changelings Trinity #3) by Nalini Singh (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
The Prenup by Lauren Layne (eBook) | 4.5 out of 5
Beginner’s Luck (Chance of a Lifetime #1) by Kate Clayborne (eBook) | 4 out of 5
Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson (Audiobook) | 2.75 out of 5
Daisy’s Back in Town by Rachel Gibson (eBook) | 3.75 out of 5
Count to Ten (Romantic Suspense #6) by Karen Rose (eBook) | 4 out of 5
How to Date Your Dragon (Mystic Bayou #1) by Molly Harper (Audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards #2) by Sarah MacLean (eARC) | 4.5 out of 5
Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop (Audiobook) | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to both The Prenup by Lauren Layne and Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean. Both books were so freaking good and I can already tell that I’ll be re-reading them soon. I cried in both of them so that’s how I know I loved them. I was moved to tears y’all!

My least favorite read of the month goes to Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson. It was just a hot mess of shit that I wasn’t in the mood for, some stupid immature shit that I wanted to smack the hero around for. You know, things like that.

Monthly Reads: June 2019

Posted July 2, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 13 Comments

Casee: I ended up finishing June stronger than I thought I would. I started the month out so slow, I didn’t have much hope that it would get better. Then it turned around. I read 9 books in June.

My favorite book of the month was Archangel’s War. I freaking loved that book. Raphael and Elena forever. My least favorite book was Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey. The heroine was insufferable.

Holly: I had a wonderful reading month. I really fell into a reading groove and knocked a lot of books out. I’m happy to report I managed to read 26 books in June.

Hot Asset by Lauren Layne | 3.75 out of 5
Hard Sell by Lauren Layne | 4.25 out of 5
The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely (audio) | 4 out of 5

Sin & Salvation by K.F. Breene | 4 out of 5
The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez | 1 out of 5
Sustained by Emma Chase (audio) (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Sidebarred by Emma Chase (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
The Will by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Soaring by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
The Golden Dynasty by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
Rock Chick Reawakening by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4.5 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was a toss up between Getting Played by Emma Chase and Archangel’s War by Nalini Singh. They were both great, though in different ways. My least favorite read was The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. That book gets a whole lot of nope from me.

Rowena: My reading wasn’t as strong as Holly’s was but it was pretty good for me. Things really picked up toward the end of the month for me so I’m super excited for the summer reading challenge that we’re participating in on the blog. I’m so ready to tackle my Summer Reading Challenge pile.

If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann (eARC) | DNF, 2 out of 5 of what I did read
The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim (eARC) | 3 out of 5
The Perfect Date by Evelyn Lozada (eARC) | DNF, 2 out of 5 of what I did read
Superfan (Brooklyn Bruisers #6) by Sarina Bowen (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfree (eARC) | 2 out of 5
Highland Deception by Meggan Connors (Kindle Unlimited) | 3 out of 5
The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez (eBook) | 1 out of 5
Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5
Night Broken (Mercy Thompson #8) by Patricia Briggs (eBook) | 3.75 out of 5
Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs (eBook) | 4 out of 5
Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson #10) by Patricia Briggs (eBook) | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was probably Superfan (Brooklyn Bruisers #6) by Sarina Bowen. I heart Silas hard and Delilah grew on me. In the beginning, she frustrated me some with how much power she let her ex have over her life but she learns her lesson and grows as a person so that made me happy.

My least favorite reads were plenty but of the ones that I didn’t like over the course of the month, the one I hated the most was The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. So much of that book pissed me off that it’s a week later and I’m still pissed off about everything. Grrr.
