2017 March Favorites
This last month has been a really stellar reading month and full of us starting or returning to duets or trilogies. Surprisingly, I've been enjoying the torture inflicted by the authors behind these, even though I'm not usually a huge fan of the cliffhanger or having to wait to read the next book. All of the novels that have another book or two after it have been so well written that I know it'll be well worth the wait for the next ones to come out. AND! It gives us something to look forward to. As usual, if you see something that looks good, click on the image and it'll take you to Amazon.
Grip and Flow by Kennedy Ryan--Maybe the best thing Kennedy Ryan has written so far. It not only addresses issues of trust and love and relationships, it addresses issues of race in a way that readers are relating to. REVIEWS here.
Something In The Way by Jessica Hawkins--This novel was something we hadn't seen before with Jessica Hawkins and we were completely taken with this novel and her dedication to pacing this story just right for her characters. I can't even get into it without writing a novella, but I think it's best to say the relationships in this novel have reached the Facebook status of: COMPLICATED. REVIEW here.
American Prince by Sierra Simone--a modern, sexier version of Camelot? Yep and in the way that's truly Sierra Simone--so it's sexy and smart and has us hanging by a thread to see who does what to whom and how. REVIEW here.
The Butterfly Project by Emma Scott--We know we're going to read something that's character rich when it comes to Emma Scott's novels and this one not only gave us interesting characters but the whole premise felt really fresh.REVIEW here.
Dirty Souls by Karina Halle--Thankfully this book came as quickly as it came; the ending of the first book had my heart racing and conspiracy theories lining up in my head. I am so excited with the return to these characters and cannot wait to see who Halle sets her sights on next. REVIEW here.
Insight by Santino Hassell--This writer has, in a very short amount of time, become one of my automatic 1-click authors. I enjoy his characters and humor, grit, and the adventures he writes for them. This novel was something I don't normally gravitate towards and I'm so glad that I read it and took a chance. REVIEW here.
A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott--I fell in love with this young adult novel when it was still in the edits stage and I haven't stopped thinking it about it since. Joss and Wes and all of the mysteriousness surrounding them have captured my heart and attention. REVIEW here.
Normally I'd insert my attempts at wittiness or a rant here, but honestly, I'm wiped out. I haven't taken a day off all year and I'm 8 school days away from spring break and I'm barely making it. Enjoy your reading this month and maybe next month I'll have something great to say!
