The Good, The Bad, and The "What The Crap Did I Just Read?"
Just an announcement, in case you have not noticed.... I've moved my monthly book wrap up solely to my newsletter. It just makes sense, so you all are not getting duplicate information from multiple sources if you happen to follow me on more than one platform. If you don't subscribe to my newsletter, why don't you? I send one a month with super hot book recommendations, and perhaps a blog post every couple of weeks, only if there is something interesting to share. No spam, I promise. Sign up and check it out.
The good, the bad and the "what the crap did I just read?".
I LOVE a seasonal read, and I intentionally started my Christmas reads in November so I could give you my December recommendations just in time to grab them up. There were some great ones, and some I frankly just couldn't get into. I am going to leave those out because I can't warn you away from something I didn't finish. That would not be fair. So here is what made my nice list and we will leave the naughty alone.
Santa's Son by David S. Scott
I rather liked this book. It was short, sassy and surprisingly emotional all in one compact punch. However, if dirty is not your thing, skip to the next recommendation. this book starts in the middle of a sex scene and builds from there. However, there is more to this mom porn than, well, porn. It has a well thought out story too, which is a must for me and any book, dirty or not. https://www.amazon.com/Santas-Son-David-S-Scott-ebook/dp/B01MZ2FY3A/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8]
Sweet Inspiration (The Klaus Brothers Book 1) by Penny Watson
This is the first book out of a series of five about the Klaus brothers. I am up to book three and have loved each one so far. Just the right amount of sweet and sexy!
And as a Christmas bonus, for the month of december, my book is on sale for .99 cents through Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/Only-Love-Survives-Zombies-Book-ebook/dp/B0153Q7NIC/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
My new monthly feature... The good, the bad and the 'what the crap did I just read'.
Let me begin by saying I am not a review site. I am an author, and as one would assume, with that comes a great deal of reading. I am not into the whole 'pimp my book because I am a fellow author' thing that many writers find themselves a part of these days, and because of that I have refrained from having reviews on my blog. But, this summer I have read many books and struggled to find trustworthy recommendations not not based on the art of backscratching. I read books. I am opinionated, and I am picky, therefore you can trust that the books I speak of on this blog, I have actually read. And the opinions I share are just that, my opinions.
So, I've decided each month I will tell you about any good books I've found, bookish things I've stumbled across, and hell, any new pens I've tried. Because, why not? However, this will not be a "lifestyle" report. I will not share my latest makeup debacle or home decorating tip, because Lord knows you don't need to hear that from me. Just books and a few odds and ends. Maybe my chickens, we'll see.
Let's get going... September. Well, I read several books, and even pre-ordered one. Gasp, I never do that. I am far too dependant on instant gratification for pre-orders, but this intrigued me so much I broke my own rule. What book, you ask, made my jump the gun? The Nutcracker Reimagined. I am a huge fan of that story. I love reimagined fairy tales and legends. And the icing on the cake, I love one of the authors, Hildie McQueen. So, the planets aligned and I ordered it. The book cover is linked if you are as intrigued as I was.
West of Forgotten is my first book by Lynda Cox although we share a publisher. I am so glad I discovered her. Once I started I didn't want to stop. Her book dove into some serious topics, but her characters never wavered. Fast paced and gripping from the start. this book was fantastic and a quick read.
So there you have it. September in the rear view mirror, and a busy October on tap. Happy Reading!
