This will be on my best of 2019 list! I absolutely adored this #romantsy book. Our two main characters are both dealing with trauma and their journey is heartwarming and so sweet. I highly recommend!! 5🌠

Listening to The Heir right now and then onto One Second, the final Seven Series book.
I‘m thoroughly enjoying reading Get a Life Chloe Brown and I may binge through all of it today. Then onto trying to finish The Pagan Stone, though this trilogy hasn‘t been my favorite I do want to finish it off!

Beard Necessities | Penny Reid

Pickpick

This was a delightful book and I think the end of the Winston Brothers series? I love the involvement of the whole clan in bringing this couple together. Even though it is a tough read I do think reading Beard With Me first helps complete the story, though not completely necessary and it is quite sad. I‘ve loved this series and look forward to the next series Reid begins! #romantsy

DaveGreen7777 5. Oooh, this is an excellent question! I think R.A. Salvatore was the first author who really made me appreciate the fantasy genre, although later on Brandon Sanderson really cemented my love for the genre! 😊 3d
ljuliel Gosh....let‘s see ..... probably Fatal Vision by Joe McGinniss 3d
AthenaWins My favorite genre is science fiction, but I watched it before I read it. So I already loved it. I will say that Mary Beard helped me to fall in love with reading history. Before then I thought it would just be dry and boring, but I realized it can be written like a narrative without losing facts. 3d

This is a heartbreaking story of the beginning of a love story. So good, but a very tough read at times. I will eagerly start book 7 tomorrow so I can finish Scarlet and Billy‘s story. Though technically a standalone this is book 6 in the Winston Brothers series and best read in order. #romantsy

I‘m going to try this #WeeklyForecast! I have two in progress, Two Minutes I will definitely finish so I will be starting One Second to finish the Seven Series. Box of Frogs I started a while ago and I was distracted so I want to dig into that. A Pagan Stone I have from the library, though so far this not my favorite Nora trilogy so I‘m not very motivated.

I was on the fence with this one. Though it was an entertaining listen and I binged it, there were problems. It is formatted very similarly to Daisy Jone & the Six - which I loved- but is not as successful. I didn‘t quite buy into anyone sharing some rather graphic scenes with a journalist. However, I did like the characters enough to give this 3 🌠
