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)

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
