3 Books That Hit My Radar #24

Not that I need to buy more eBooks, but how can I not when they sound as good as these do? It’s a good thing I get paid on Friday, because if books are going to sound this good, I’m going to need a paycheck.

Vampires are making a comeback and I love it.

Blood Casinothis sounds really good. It seems like its going to have a darker, seductive atmosphere and I’m kind of in love already.

Anything high fantasy with Fae is going to be a win for me.

A Court of Honey and Ash (Honey and Ice Trilogy #1) – and let’s be real…the last line of this synopsis sold me “Hunted by the very man I loved once upon a time.”

And we already know how much of a sucker I am for Hades + Persephone retellings.

Abductedenemies-to-lovers and fated mates…it’s like this was written specifically for me.

I might have to see if any of these also have audiobooks, because then I would definitely have the time to read them right away. But regardless, these are getting added to my kindle, so that when I do have a free moment, I can dive right in. Continue reading “3 Books That Hit My Radar #24”

3 Books That Hit My Radar #23

At this point, I should just put my wallet in a safe and tell someone to hide it where I won’t find it. Because if you show me anything that’s “Peter Pan retelling/reimagining” or “Fae” I’m automatically going to buy it. Hands down. No further questions. Just tell me where to sign.

And omfg do these books sound so good. And the covers…ugh. I need them all.

Actually, the covers for all 3 of these books are what caught my eye initially, and then I read the synopses for them and just take my money.

Wendy, Darling – A.C. Wise

Yeah, I need this. June 1 is so far from now (not really) and I don’t want to wait. I just want a physical copy of this in my hands right now so I can binge it in one sitting.

Straight On ‘Til Morning – K.J. Sutton

Fuuuuuck. I mean, this is the kind of Peter Pan retelling I’ve been longing for. I can’t wait for my physical copy to arrive, because I’m dropping everything and inhaling this.

Ink and Foxglove – Bethany Anne Lovejoy

Why am I such a sucker for a Beauty and the Beast-eque type trope? Fae comes steals girl as part of debt…why is that so enticing? Regardless, I can’t wait to read this. Continue reading “3 Books That Hit My Radar #23”

3 Books That Hit My Radar #21

What do we want?

Obviously more book recs.

You can never have too many book recs.

All of these books primarily caught my eye due to their covers. An eye catching, stunning and/or interesting cover is always going to get me to click on whatever link is advertising the book. Then the synopsis may make me purchase it immediately. Now, if it’s by an author I know, or the reviews are stellar, I’m probably going to auto-buy, One-Click that shit no questions asked.

These three books sound like they’re right up my alley, and like something I’d inhale in one sitting. So, let’s check them out!

A Circus of Ink: We are bound by ink. He is supposed to kill me. I mean…hello. That one sentence makes me want to drop everything and pick this up right now.

The Midnight Test: Mysterious, Hot and Alluring love interest, and intertwined fates? Sign me up.

Heir of Ruin: Hades + Persephone, need I say more? Continue reading “3 Books That Hit My Radar #21”

5 of My Favorite Audiobooks

Amazon.com: Audible for Fire TV: Appstore for AndroidI currently have 143 books in my Audible Library.

I don’t even want to think about how much money that is, I’d probably die.

Audiobooks make reading so easy – especially these days when I don’t always have the time or the energy to sit and read a book. Usually sitting and reading a book results in me falling asleep anymore. I’m fortunate enough that I’m able to listen while I’m at work doing my job. It means I get at least 6 solid hours in – and I can read books.

I’ve been an Audible subscriber for about 6 years on and off and I truly love the platform. I do wish it weren’t so expensive, and that you could share audiobooks easier. For how much money I sink into the platform + buying eBooks and physical copies – it would be nice to be able to easily share them. My biggest gripe is the exclusivity of it all, but I’m still going to fork over the cash. I’m weak and I love easy access to the books.

I’ve looked into other platforms. I really should utilize them to help cut back on the asinine spending I do through Audible, but the instant gratification and owning the books is such a plus. Continue reading “5 of My Favorite Audiobooks”

3 Books That Wonderfully Surprised Me

Sometimes we go into books having no expectations.
Sometimes we go into books because a friend raved about them.

Sometimes we go into books because the cover is pretty.

Or the synopsis sounds amazing.

Or for really any reason imaginable.

They either come out on top, or they just fall flat.

Okay, there’s a whole range of places any one book can fall on an enjoyment factor – but you get what I mean.

These three books are ones that I had some expectations going in – based on the synopsis I figured I was going to enjoy them, but really didn’t know just how much that would end up being. This is one of my favorite things when it comes to reading. When a book just wow’s you and you’re left in a puddle of emotions, sitting there wondering what the fuck you’re going to do now. How you’re going to wait for a second book, or deal with the fact that there isn’t a second book.

Each of these books left me desperate for more, and only one of them is part of a series – the other two are standalones. So, needless to say, I’ve been silently suffering for a while now.

One of these books ripped my heart out when I got to the end

One gave me strong Anya and Dimitri vibes.

One has a kickass heroine fighting for her life and her kingdom.

I have reviews for all three of these books, and I’ll link them. See if you can figure out which book is which and let me know if you’ve read them. If you have read them, let me know your thoughts and opinions in the comments. If I’ve convinced you to pick them up, then I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “3 Books That Wonderfully Surprised Me”

3 Books That Hit My Radar #20

It’s amazing the books you can acquire when you’re not at work.

I haven’t been at work since last Wednesday – I took so much needed time off – and I, uh, bought some books.

Like, I didn’t think twice and just One-Clicked them.

I’ve said it before, being able to One-Click books is so dangerous…but it’s so much fun. And so, satisfying. I need to know the books are readily available if and when I get the chance to read them, right? Also, what’s the point of working my ass of every day if I can spend my money on books that are going to mock me from my Kindle?

And they will mock me from my Kindle, because, do I have time to read them? I don’t know, maybe if work isn’t crazy, but probably not. And that fact annoys me, because all I want to do is read these books. Continue reading “3 Books That Hit My Radar #20”

5 (More) 2021 YA Contemporary Books I’m Excited For!

I don’t know when I started falling back in love with YA Contemporary novels – but I’m glad I did. Otherwise, I’d be missing out on some really great sounding ones. I’ve done two of these posts so far, and they’re legit just an excuse for me to scream about these books and how much I want to read them. 

Better Together – I was a fan of Christine’s first book, so when I heard she was writing a new one, I knew I wanted to give it a shot.

A Pho Love Story – this sounds adorable, and I cannot wait to read it. My hardcover is sitting on my shelf judging me – I need to read it soon.

You Can Go Your Own Way – this sounds like it might break me but will also be heartwarming. Bring it on.

Instructions for Dancing – I love contemporaries that appear to have this little touch of magic.

This sounds utterly adorable and like it might make me feel like *forever alone* but I’m ready.

Last Chance Books – Enemies to lovers? Bookstores? I mean, was this book written special

for me? Because it feels like it.

You can check out my other two posts – 5 2021 YA Contemporary Books I’m Excited For and 5 2021 YA Fantasy Books I’m Excited For! Continue reading “5 (More) 2021 YA Contemporary Books I’m Excited For!”

3 Books That Hit My Radar #19

Why. Is. There. Not. Enough. Time. To. Read. All. The. Books.

Every single time I do one of these posts, I just want to pause life so I can read the books I recommend to y’all. But it’s so hard to find the time to sit down and read. I’ve come to rely so heavily on audiobooks, it’s a bit ridiculous. But I recommend these, so that maybe you have more time than me, and you can read them!

I hope you do.

I want to live vicariously through you.

Each of the books I’m recommending today, sound so good, and they’ve been added to my eBook TBR – I have 2 whole collections on my Kindle of books I need to prioritize. One’s high fantasy/fae, one is everything else. I’d be dumb to not add these and make sure I get to them…soon…eventually. I did take two days off, giving me a long weekend, so who knows.

3 Books that Hit My Radar #18

I love it when social media gives me targeted ads for books.

My wallet hates it.

My heart loves it.

After last month though – I’m definitely trying to be conscious about how many books I buy, but I’m definitely putting these three in my cart.

*whispers* well technically I already own 2 out of the three listed, but you get my drift.

Nights of Iron and Ink showed up on my Insta page, and the cover made me click on it. Then I read the synopsis and it’s right up my alley. I knew I wanted to read it.

Lucifer’s Bride…I mean, are we really surprised that I’m recommending this? It’s actually been on my radar for a while, but with my recent reads, I’m on a King of the Underworld kick and I need all the content.

Paid in Full just sounded enjoyable and like something I’d like. The cover grabbed my attention on Facebook, and I saw “vampires” and I clicked buy. I’m very easy to please and convince.

Let me know if you’ve read or heard of any of these books! And let’s jump in! Continue reading “3 Books that Hit My Radar #18”
