Posted December 1, 2021 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 10 Comments

It’s a new month so we’re back with a list of our Monthly Reads to share with each of you. This is where you’ll see what each of us has read and what our favorite books and our least favorite books of the month are. Check it out.


Reading wise, November was not much better than October for me. I read four books. Two were rereads. :O

Annihilation Road (Torpedo Ink #6) by Christine Feehan | 3 out of 5
The Bride (Lairds’ Fiancées #1) by Julie Garwood (reread) (audiobook) | 5 out of 5
The Secret (Highlands’ Lairds #1) by Julie Garwood (reread) (audiobook) | 5 out of 5
Immortal’s Honor (Dark Protectors #14) by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.25 out of 5

My favorite book of the month was Immortal’s Honor by Rebecca Zanetti. I also absolutely adored the two JG books on audio.


I didn’t have a lot of reading time, but I listened to a lot of audiobooks in November. Most of them re-reads, since those are easier for me to listen to when my brain is engaged elsewhere.

Unzipped (Lucky in Love #4) by Lauren Blakely (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews (reread) | 3.5 out of 5

A Mere Formality (Kinsmen #3) by Ilona Andrews (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
Fated Blades (Kinsmen #4) by Ilona Andrews | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was Fated Blades by Ilona Andrews. The world-building was fantastic and I loved both main characters. Honorable mention goes to Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen. My least favorite was Priceless by Shannon Mayer. The writing was all over the place and I didn’t connect with the characters. I ended up DNF’ing it.

    I read 19 books in November. My favorite was Cate C. Wells’s THE TYRANT ALPHA’S REJECTED MATE, a wolf-shifter romance with excellent world-building. I DNF’d one book: Tammy Walsh’s NEADT IN THE CAGE, an alien romance. It was written in a very flat style and I just couldn’t get into it.

      BEAST IN THE CAGE. I didn’t like the book, but I should at least try to get the title correct!

    My least favorites are impossible to name as I abandoned them unfinished.

    Favorites in November included Role Model (Game Changers Book 5) by Rachel Reid and rereads of the Guardsmen series by Cooper West.

  3. JenM

    Favorites for the month were Fated Blades by Ilona Andrews and The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang, although that book absolutely tore my heart out of my chest. Least favorite was The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer, in which I felt the enemies to lovers trope was carried on too long for my liking (unlike in Fated Blades, where they got over it and started working together almost immediately).

  4. Kim

    I read and enjoyed Miss Moriarty, I Presume by Sherry Thomas. I didn’t have a least favorite in November.

  5. Glenda M

    It felt like a really slow month since I started reading holiday anyhologies early – mostly because we got our Christmas present to ourselves early. The puppy is a ball of teeth and fur and keeping me very busy

    one of the worst books I’ve ever come across: Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna
    Harrington’s Valley by Darrel Rachel was interesting
