Top 10 of 2021!


It is hard to believe we are saying goodbye to 2021 already. Insane!

My Top 10 list for this past year consists of 7 romances (unsurprisingly since that is what I read most), 2 young adults, and 1 fiction (historical fiction to be exact).

You will find my Top 10 below, but I would also love to see yours. Send me a message on Instagram with the link to your list so I can have a look (and I will happily share on my Instagram stories too)! 

They are in no particular order and the ones with title only are clickable, that will send you to the review. Have fun and happy reading! 

I hope you find something to love in this list and that you end up loving it as much as I did. 

1 - Raphael by Tillie Cole (Dark Romance)

2 - Priest by Sierra Simone (Taboo Romance)

3 - The Vixen and the Vet by Kat Regnery (Modern Fairytale Retelling Romance)

Great modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Savanah was a struggling journalist and Asher a wounded veteran living in hiding because of his injuries. Savanah makes him face the world and his own fears, and Asher makes Savanah see the world in a different light. Perfect chemistry, very well written, emotional, perfection!!!

4 - Hitched by the Gunslinger by Michelle McLean (Western Romance)

5 - Texas Destiny by Lorraine Heath (Western Romance)

I discovered Western Romances this past year and fell in love. Cowboy romance doesn't always work me, but this Western Romance subgenre is killing it. Texas Destiny was my first in September and I've read 4 since :) 

6 - Raze by Tillie Cole (Dark Romance)

7 - The Prince of Broadway by Joanna Shupe (Historical Romance)

8 - Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson (Young Adult Fantasy)

9 - The Last Tiara by MJ Rose (Historical Fiction)

10 - Namesake by Adrienne Young (Young Adult Fantasy)


There are a few worthy mentions from this past year as well, all with reviews:

- I Hate you More by Lucy Gilmore (for the pup lover and the laughs)

- Miss Eliza's English Kitchen by Annabel Abbs (historical fiction)

- Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross (paranormal romance)

- Neon Gods by Katee Robert (Modern day Greek Mythology inspired)

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
