This was my first sci-fi romance and I have to say I actually enjoyed it. I put off reading this because I felt I wouldn’t like it, mainly because it’s so hyped up right now and I can see why.
This is about a woman named Georgie who is basically kidnapped on a spaceship with other woman she doesn’t know. She doesn’t know how she got there or where she is going all she know is she is surrounded by little green men that has full control over her and the other girls.
In the book Georgie is basically taken by a big blue guy with horns and tail ..his name is Vektal and he is obsessed with Georgie. He wants to make sure she and protected and wants to make sure while she is living on this ice planet that she is happy.
I liked how imaginative the story was and just how different it was too. The author made it easy to under the world and words to describe other elements of the world. I can definitely see myself reading more into this series.
Instead of giving a full review of this story I’ll share my personal thoughts and how I felt. Indigo by Beverly Jenkins is my first historical romance novel that I read. I always wanted to read historical romances but had no idea where to start. I knew for a fact that I wanted to read some written by a black author to start me off. Indigo sets the tone of what real romance is especially during a dangerous time like the 1800s where blacks were bought and sold into slavery and had very little power.
I strongly believe Beverly Jenkins captured the historical part very well and made it seem very believable. Hester and Galen are the perfect couple. Hester I felt was a strong woman and did for herself she wasn’t use to a man doing for her. Which for me I’m glad the author didn’t write Hester as a weak woman that needed a man for everything. And Galen he is a alpha male he knows what he wants and goes after it. He knew he wanted Hester and wouldn’t stop until he had Hester as his wife.
The whole story is swoon worthy. Every page when Hester and Galen were together I was smiling and I felt happy for them. They have gone through so much together and in the end still managed to be together and build their family, even during the tough times that was slavery.
I actually buddy read this with my good read and now because of her I want to read more of Beverly Jenkins books. I can now say I like reading historical romance and I can see why a lot people of enjoy reading them. Reading Indigo has made me want to read other historical romances novels from other authors as well.
Overall this was a great story 5⭐ I can definitely see myself re reading this again.
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 ⭐
Hey guys! So today I wanted to share my review of the new eyeshadow palette by Kylie cosmetics that I’ve been using.
This palette has 24 beautiful shades such as golds, browns, light shimmers and glitters. It’s very beautiful. You can create different looks with it to super sexy or like me something for everyday. The shades blend very well and don’t need a lot of work .
I enjoy using this palette, I believe anyone can use it on any skin tone. I’m happy that kylie cosmetics has now new formulas and it’s vegan and cruelty free which I think is a plus for everyone. You can find this palette on kyliecosmetics.com and or Ulta website or in store.
