Hey hey Friends. I know it’s August now, but for real, I knew it was the end of July but it didn’t really hit me until I was typing in the date being August 1st. So here I am (finally) sharing a bit of a reading wrap up for the month of July.
I read 21 books in July. Out of those 21, most were really great reading experiences but there were a few duds. If you’re not friends with me on Goodreads, you can follow me here, to keep up with what I’m reading and vice versa.
First up is Returning His Favor by Jacqueline Francis.
Returning His Favor has the hero we deserve in 2019. It is sexy as hell, an emotional roller coaster and overall a really amazing read. Typically when I see Amish romances, they appear to be very sweet and cozy which is cool, but this one takes a different path without being disrespectful, yet still an insightful look into a culture different from my own.
I don’t think I’ve stopped thinking about A Lesson In Thorns by Sierra Simone since finishing it. I actually threw the book into the hands of my husband, made him download Audible..and he’s currently listening to it right now.
A Lesson In Thorns is a dark, twisted fairy tale like story. Sierra Simone in my opinion is our modern day, gothic romance author, but sexier than what the genre may have been known for once upon a time. I love that about her.
My last favorite from July was Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne.
I went into this one really not knowing much about it and am glad I did. I was quickly sucked into the story which has a plot line that typically causes me a lot of anxiety but it made sense with this one. With this being the first in a new series, I’m very excited to see what is going to come next from this very nontraditional group of friends.
Let me know what your reading favorites were in July. I can’t believe we are already in August. Hello..I just bought three fall candles from Michael’s..and Halloween lights for my kids to put up. It made me so happy.
Until next time, take care of yourselves. We will chat again soon.
