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)

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
