Hello fellow book lovers! January was a good reading month. I had wanted to read more, however I had some setbacks. I read 14 books and reviewed 13. I had ARC books and some I just picked up.
Favorite ARC Of The Month
I had a really tough time narrowing this down. It finally came to one of my favorite authors, Kerrigan Byrne.
I chose Dancing With Danger, from the Goode Girls series. The series centers around the Goode Family, right now the four Goode sisters. This book was so well written. Mercy and Raphael were such wonderful characters. I fell in love with both of them. The engaging, fresh plot was hard to resist. Although being character driven there was plenty of action and passion. More so than the previous installments. This book just captured my attention. Here is the review:
Favorite Book Of The Month
This category involves books that were not ARC books. My favorite was a new author to me.
I chose The Duchess Deal, the first book in the Girl Meets Duke series by Tessa Dare. Ash was such a riveting character. The Beauty And The Beast theme is a favorite of mine. Intertwined with it was a vigilante storyline. The best part of the book was the humor. It is hard to find historical romance books with a lot of humor. The humor was integrated throughout the story so that it was refreshing. This has become one of my favorite authors and I am looking forward to reading more from this author. Here is the review:
What’s Coming Up
So far I have five ARC books for this month:
- Mistress In The Making Series by Larissa Lyons
- Earl Of Shefford by Anna St. Claire
- Olivia And The Masked Duke by Grace Callaway
- Stolen By The Rogue By Sasha Cottman
- A Hero For Lady Abigail by Katherine Ann Madison and Maggie Dallen
I also want to read several other books. They are mostly books where I am playing catch up on the series:
- The Devil You Know Series by Kerrigan Byrne
- Her Husband’s Harlot by Grace Callaway
- The Governess Game by Tessa Dare
February is looking promising. I am reading the ARC of Olivia And The Masked Duke right now, which I think will be in the running favorite book of the month. My goal is to read more books this month. I am getting some new authors which is exciting! Thanks for visiting, I love to hear thoughts and comments about my picks! Until next time stay safe and keep reading!
