…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
“Fever Pitch” by Heidi Cullinan
Hands down for so many reasons, most of them personal but this book… this book was beyond amazing.
(What’s all the fuss about?):
Ball and Chain by Abigail Roux. The wait to see what happened after that perfectly romantic and amazing kiss at the end of Touch & Geaux was more exciting than what I got with the first few pages… where I stopped reading and never picked it up again. I still don’t get it.
(Why haven’t more people read this?):
I don’t know that I have a truly underhyped book. I read all over the place and really think that everyone has their own deal when it comes to why they love a book but I will say, The Flesh Cartel is a misunderstood series. Sure, it’s tough, it’s a hard read at times but it’s one of the most amazing, stellar, well written and just rip your heart out series I have read.
(didn’t know what to expect or the story caught you off guard or anything that just…surprised you…):
Evenfall by Ais/Santino Hassell and Captive Prince Volume 2 by C.S. Pacat.. These books are not what I normally read and I was prompted to give both a try. I can’t imagine now, not having read them. I get it, what everyone has said about these books; the writing, the world building and the hotter than hot UST between both couples. Le Unf! I get it.
(I’d buy anything these authors write, without a doubt):
… Um, there are more…
No wonder I spend so much money on books. Oops?
This was the year for me to try new things. I pushed myself to read out of my comfort zone, to try new authors and to examine what really makes me tick. Each year I find new tropes and new styles etc. that tickle my fancy and others that I am more than comfortable leaving behind.
To once again push myself to read more of what I wouldn’t. I am looking for more gay literature to read, also books that were written in the70’s or earlier – I have been searching local used bookstores and found a few – and to simply enjoy falling in love with romance between men and also, women. I am looking forward to finding some good f/f reads and well as transgendered. As one would say, my reading journey looks like a colorful rainbow.
