July Reading Wrap Up
I spent a lot of July by reading by water. By the pool. By the lake. By a glass filled with ice.
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara is another long term TBR list book for me. Maybe because of the length - its a commitment to read. Both physically and emotionally. This book is beautifully written and completely heart and gut wrenching. The subject matter is heavy. Very heavy.
Maybe that's why I turned to Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo next. After reading Shadow and Bone I had to see where the story went. Now I'm engrossed in the Grisha world. And a little in love with Mal. What can I say.
I've been thinking about writing a hockey romance and that meant homework. Icebreakers by Hannah Grace has been everywhere on social media and is a college romance. Taking A Shot by Jaci Burton is on the opposite end of the stick, an old school romance book and deals with an older hockey player. Both are spicey and have loveable heroes with heart. I might need to do more research. :>
Thank You For Listening was a blind recommendation from a friend. I had no idea what to expect of a romance book written by a romance book narrator. The book is a solid great read full of humour, endearing characters, a golden retriever hero and a romantic love story with an HEA. So I'm passing on the favour - This is me recommending you read this book.
At The Pleasure of the President by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake was recommended by @baileythomasauthor This romance thriller is the last in a series (yeah, I have a habit of not starting at the beginning) and has a good mix of intrigue and romance. I can totally see this as a movie. Now I have to go back and start with the first book.
