I also have like 2-3 other books that I already started that will be included in April’s TBR as a way for me to finish them. I have some planned ARCs I need to get to as well this month. So wish me luck this month will be busy for me but I’m looking to get as much reading done as I can.
I just had my birthday this past February 20th and it’s always a big blessing to see another year and spend it with people I love and care about. But one thing I wanted most out of all my gifts (which I enjoyed just as well) we’re more books. So I did a quick video of a birthday book haul of all the books I got and sharing why I chose them. I’m excited to be getting to them very soon. And having these new books have definitely put me into a big reading mood. Hope you enjoy the video let me know if you are interested in any of the books I mentioned or if you read of these.
So I’m starting down a long rabbit hole of reading all of Ruby Dixion’s books, and I have to say I’m enjoying myself. This my second book read by her and I liked the world the author has created.
This Varrik and Milly’s story how how they met. Milly was kidnapped from earth and forced to be a slave to blue horned alliens. She is given as gift to leader and ruler Varrik. Varrik seems to treat her differently than the other alliens. He is showing that he cares for Milly.
In the story Varrik keeps Milly by his side and eventually tells her how he feels about her. Although being on a strange planet and speaking a different language for Milly she is trying to make the best of it. She ends of falling for Varrik as well.
In the end they have their HEA and get married and move to another planet where they start a new life.
I really enjoyed this in my mind I was rooting for both Milly and Varrik to be together without consequences especially since Varrik is the ruler of his planet and has so many laws to abide by.
After reading this novella I plan to continue on in the ice planet series.
Rating: 4.5 ⭐
Let me know if you read any of Ruby Dixion’s Books? Synopsis for PRETTY HUMAN
So I typically don’t buy too many physical books, or least I haven’t been in the last year or so. But this month I really wanted some new books and wanted to treat myself. I got my books from Target and from Barnes and Nobles. All the books I picked are new to me so I don’t know much about them but still wanted to try them out.
Down below is my recorded book haul video. Check it out and let me know which books I should start next for January.
I came across this author’s book through my library and decided to take a chance. I chose this title to start with. I do like the flow of the story and how it’s set up like a mix-tape.
This story is about two people who fell in love and are trying to find ways to keep their love strong. This was a simple love story I just wanted more.
I also was draw to this because of the cover, this was strictly a cover read and I see the author has similar cover art for all his books so that’s a win. I will be reading more from him to get a more feel and understanding of his writing style.
Harper was a bad b!tch and she seemed to play the game very well. She knew what she wanted and went after it. The whole situation with Mahoney and his wife was messed up. But in reality that’s how it is. I can’t be too mad with Harper she did what she was supposed to do, while making sure she got paid in the process. In the beginning I felt bad for both women but after reading to the end I don’t. These are games people play, any and everything will have a consequence. Mahoney just didn’t play the game right, facts! I enjoyed this wanted more.
I enjoyed this middle grade novel, this is about a young girl named Bea her mom and dad are now divorced but her dad is getting re married to a man named Jesse. In the beginning Bea is trying to gather her feelings about it all. But once she sees that her mom is okay with it she feels she can be okay with it.
Jesse has a daughter named Sonia, and at first she seemed standoff-ish towards Bea and the idea of her dad marrying another man. But she learns this is going to be her new family now.
I really like Rebecca Stead’s writing this is the second book I read by her. The way she writes middle grade is not in a way that it’s watered down for the younger audience but she puts her young characters in real world situations, that’s something I enjoy.
The writing and the topic of discussion is something that drew me into the story more. This is another book by Rebecca that I would re read really good, about family, friends, love and being there for one another.
I read this as a buddy read with my friend. This was an okay quick read. I really wanted more with Eve and Layton, this book talked more about their profession than anything else. I honestly just wanted more. I liked the beginning of the story of how Eve and Layton met I thought that was nice. But overall this was a quick read and I can’t be too mad with that, this was the first book I read by Beverly Jenkins and I plan to read more from her soon. 2.75 stars ⭐
