Hey Everyone! May is over, which means that it is time to give you a bit of an update on my reading progress! These past few months have been hard on me and incredibly hard on the world. Cal is doing well. He's as hyper as ever and is acting like he didn't have major surgery last month. As you all know, I've been pretty quiet here. I truly appreciate you all staying here and reading my posts. I'm hoping that June will reinvigorate me, and I will start to be more active on my blog.
Black Tangled Heart lives up to its title. Each character is tangled up with pain to the point where I questioned if some of the characters were redeemable. In the first half of the book, we got to see Jane and Jamie grow up, and I loved watching their relationship flourish. Both characters were well written, and I enjoyed seeing them grow up. With that said, I have to say that I struggled to read some of the sexual scenes.
Kiss of Vengeance is the second book in the True Immortality series by S. Young. As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of Samantha Young & I thoroughly enjoyed War of Hearts. When I received this book, I was extremely excited to dive into it, but it just wasn't my favorite. It had many of the elements I love, but at times it fell flat. This book was a slow burn with an enemy to lover trope feel.
Can you believe that February is over? Seriously, it felt like January was a year-long, and #Faebruary was like a day. As you may already know, in January, I started #FaeFriday, and I'm so glad to see that there are participants! It's so much fun to see how everyone interprets the prompts & I love all of the different answers! We also closed out the month with the Whole Latte Books - Book Club, where we discussed Get a Life, Chloe Brown, which is one of my all-time favorite romances! I have to say, it was so fun to talk to everyone about Get a Life, Chloe Brown!
We all love social media, so this prompt was a lot of fun to think about. I have to say it was a tough one for me to answer. I typically follow bookish accounts, so that would mean I would automatically follow and love every single bookish person. I use social media so that I can find new books, talk bookish things, and share my love of all things book related. Though I'm a book nerd and would list every single book lover I have read about, I decided to go with a list of characters that would be more of the outliers on my feed.
It's Friday!!! That means it's time to participate in #FaeFriday! This week we're talking about iron! Iron is known to ward off faeries and, in some instances, limit the Fae's powers. So The prompt this week is: What is something that sucks the magic out of a book? The wonderful @Leah_Books created this prompt! Please link to her blog http://www.leahbooksandcooks.com. There are a few things that suck the magic out of books for me. The main one is the lack of character development.
It's Tuesday, and that means it's Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday used to be hosted over on The Broke and the Bookish but moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl. As described on The Artsy Reader Girl's blog, "It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together." This description is right up my alley, and I hope you all enjoy this tag as much as I do! The prompt this week was "Love Freebie," so I figured that I would take this freebie opportunity to share some of my favorite romances that I have read. There is a little bit of everything on this list. I hope that you will find something that will spark interest.
Let your inner #Ravenclaw out and take a look at my #MonthlyWrapUp for September 2019. #ReadingStatistics #BookBlogger
