Hello there, lovely ladies
This last week saw our first REAL chilly weather, and as you can imagine, I am Not. A. Happy. Puppy. ❄️ But, luckily, it also came with some stellar reading, so that’s a win. 👍🏻
I forgot to mention this with my previous rambling, but Sharon shared this, a blogpost from the Shameless Book Club featuring 16 Romance and Erotic Books to Read Before You Die. Not sure why Christian and Gideon didn’t make the cut, and a few I personally don’t feel belong, but nevertheless, an interesting mix and perhaps fodder for your bookshelf. Let us know if any on the list blew your mind and is worth pursuing.
As far as I know nothing new or exciting is brewing in our little world, but I came across this article by Entertainment News where Erika speaks her mind on writing Christian’s POV. Interesting stuff.
Then, let’s dive right in, shall we?
This week I read:
When It’s Real by Erin Watt was a lovely light read showing us yet again how shallow and lonely stardom can be. I enjoyed the premise, but it has to be said, cottoning on to my book-nookie trend observation from last week, that the lovin’ was VERY lite and started very late. With the previous success of her Paper Princess series I would have thought that she would stick to her winning recipe. Alas.
Sparrow by L. J. Shen scored a mega 4 1/2 stars from me. Thank you, Tara for the rec. 😉 It was much more gritty than our usual clean-cut stories, rather like a fairytale from the rough part of town, but it was well worth the glimpse into the grimy underbelly of crime families. I will definitely be looking for more from this accomplished writer.
Currently I’m reading:
Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker, book 1 in the Wild Wedding series.
I couldn’t help posting this. If boys have their toys, well then, so do we girls.…
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, lovelies. As always, please feel free to share your book glory stories with us!
