Weekend Reads #105 – Maybe This Christmas by Jennifer Snow

December 16, 2017 Reviews 0

Maybe This Christmas by is a fun, steamy romance that kept me up all night until I finished it. I adored this story and everything in it! Two friends who suddenly find themselves in love and wanting to make a go of their relationship….it was done perfectly. Emma Callaway is head over heels in love with her best friend and she doesn’t know what to do about it. She does know that their friends with benefits arrangement can’t continue because it will eventually break her heart. The question is how does she tell Asher that. Asher Westmore is one of the hottest… Read more »

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: The Christmas Promise by Sean D. Young

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: The Christmas Promise by Sean D. Young

December 15, 2017 Reviews 1

The Christmas Promise by is the second in her series which revolves around the McClendon sisters. Each book can be read as a standalone with characters crossing over to the other books. This particular book is about Jennifer McClendon and a vacation that gives her more than she bargained for. I like Jennifer. She’s a strong heroine who despite circumstances (like finding her boyfriend cheating on her) keeps going. She doesn’t allow the lemons that life throws at her to get in the way of her hopes and dreams. Simeon is just as likable. In fact I found myself falling for… Read more »

Review: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

12 Days at Bleakly Manor by is a Christmas retelling of the Dickens classic Bleakly Manor. I started this story with zero expectations but quickly fell in love with the writing style of , the mystery surrounding the manor and its guests, and the jilted romance between Ben and Clara. It reminds me a little of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None minus the murdering of course 😉 Clara is a young woman who has lost everything in the last year. On Christmas Eve the year prior she was to wed a man who not only left her at the alter but was… Read more »

Trick by is the fourth novel in the series, and as we have hit the halfway mark of on , it has the most reveals and surprises for fans of the series. Faith Peyton is a brand new character to and I love her! She’s a straightforward, what you see is what you get kind of girl. And it’s a breath of fresh air to have a character like that. An orphan with little memory of her childhood or her own origins, Faith works as a fisherman, but as her 25th birthday approaches she is forced to seek marriage or join… Read more »

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: Christmas with the Sheriff by Victoria James

Entangled’s Under the Mistletoe Blog Tour: Christmas with the Sheriff by Victoria James

December 8, 2017 Reviews 2

Christmas with the Sheriff by broke my heart over and over again. Seriously I had to sit it down at one point and have a good cry before I could continue. It’s heart-breaking, romantic, and one of those books you cheer for at the end. Julia Bailey is a character that I truly found myself in. While I’ve never experienced the loss she has in this book, I empathized with her and put myself in her shoes…which explains why the book affected me the way it did. Julia is a strong woman, a young widow who in one night lost everything she… Read more »

Review: Chosen One by Scarlett Dawn

Review: Chosen One by Scarlett Dawn

November 30, 2017 Reviews 0

Chosen One by is the 6th installment in her massive series and the third for her heroine Caro. This book was lukewarm for me. There were parts I loved, parts I disliked, and parts that were just “meh.” I wanted to love this book because I really like Caro, but there were some issues that I just couldn’t overcome. The Likes: Caro! I really enjoy this character. She is one of those that just faces the world and what it brings her head on and doesn’t care what others might think about her. She’s feisty, courageous, and loyal. Seriously I root… Read more »

November 20, 2017 Reviews 2

I had the pleasure of beta reading Prophecy of Darkness back in May and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you 😀 Prophecy of Darkness by is an exciting, new fantasy about a land whose magic is gone. Without magic, the kingdom of Dreach-Sciene is dying, nothing grows, famine looms and rebellions are beginning to pop up. Their only hope is a prophecy that talks about the legendary Tri-Gard, reuniting them and bringing magic back to the land. So the beginning of this book has a bit of a slow pace as the authors set the stage and… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! The book I’m sharing with you today came out late last month and somehow I missed the release day 🤦🏼‍♀️I had the opportunity to beta read this book over the Summer and I’ve been dying to share it with you since. If you are a fan of the series, you will be happy with the ending, even if you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the characters. If you haven’t started the series yet, enjoy scifi, alien dystopians, and a little romance, I highly recommend you grab a copy of Broken Skies and start a binge read ASAP!… Read more »

Review: The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay

Review: The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay

November 6, 2017 Reviews 2

I am admittedly a huge Jane Austen fan which in turn makes me a big fan of . So far I have enjoyed all of her books! The Austen Escape is no exception. This is a fun, sweet read filled with some of my favorite Austen characters. Mary Davies is a character that is in the midst of a life crisis. Her job is falling apart. Her love life is nonexistent. She’s in a rut, aimless so to say. At her father’s urging, she goes with her childhood friend on an all-expenses paid vacation to a manor house in Bath to live… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! I’m a week late with this post but I wanted to be sure to share my review of the book y’all voted for in October. The Lie by is an intense read, full of surprises and twists I didn’t see coming. Be prepared to not want to sit this book down. This psychological thriller was the perfect read for Halloween. The Lie by has been on my TBR shelf for over a year. I was given an ARC copy before the book came out and unfortunately it got lost in the pile. However when I found it I knew I wanted… Read more »
