Just a Bit Wrecked | Alessandra Hazard
post image

I have LOVED every. single. book. in the Straight Guys series (except for #9, we don't talk about her 👀). But this series is just absolutely everything. All the tropes, all the kinks, all the suffocating lovesickness 😆. So of course Just a Bit Wrecked was my pick this month ❤️. It is 1000% in my top 3 out of the 13 books in the series.

Christy2318 Love that series! She is great at the obsessive co-dependent relationship that would be totally toxic in real life but that is super entertaining to read about. Have you read Cora Rose? 13h
chasjjlee @Christy2318
I have read the Unexpected series by Cora Rose (Whit, Sem, Emery, Luke). Sem and Emery were my favorites!
12h
Christy2318 I think Sem and Luke were my favorites but I liked the whole series. She has a new book that just came out that isn‘t part of that series. It‘s high on my TBR. 11h
chasjjlee @Christy2318 ooh, I need to check that out! I really enjoyed the whole series as well. I've been on a Alessandra Hazard kick for sure though! Just finished the Calluvia's Royalty series. So good! 9h

Prince | Cambria Hebert
post image

Once Upon a Time by Alessandra Hazard was my absolute favorite this month. It's a sci-fi romance and it was EVERYTHING. Beautiful love story, twists I didn't see coming, and some weird sci-fi love connection thing that I didn't know I needed in my life.

That being said....

Y'all, Prince was soooo good! I can't NOT pick it 😬.

Finishing out the month of August with Just a bit Dirty from the Straight Guys series by Alessandra Hazard. Tagged my fave of the series so far.

Seriously, go read this series. It has all the tropes.

Stalked, Once Upon a Time, and Sem were my favorites this month ♥️.

A lot of the books I try to tag are not in the system so I'm sorry that I tag random books 😂.

The theme for July was Sci-Fi. I only read one, Hurricane by Laura Taylor. It was not my jam 🤷‍♀️. I don't think I enjoy that genre as much.

All in all, a great month of reading 😍.

There were very few things I didn't enjoy in this book but there were SOME. The physical relationship gets a little rough at times and that was a little much. But this was a strong 4⭐ read for me.

My June reading wrap-up!

Finished out the month with the Tagged book. It was interesting and different and very YA 🤷‍♀️ I did a buddy read for this book and we enjoyed it for what it was.

On to the next month ✌️. I'm starting with the first book in the Necessary Evils series by Onley James (Unhinged). Can't freaking wait!

Okay, so.....quick question.

How far into a book do you allow yourself to DNF?

I can usually tell right away if the book is not for me BUT sometimes the book is OKAY but I'm also not really enjoying myself and I'm hoping it'll get better. And I can't decide if I should stick it out or not. (I'm reading Safe and Sound by E.M. Lindsey and struggling with it.)

What is y'all's method for DNFing?? Just curious 🤔.

Aims42 For me, if by page 50 I‘m not interested I‘ll bail 🚀 Depending on the book, I‘ll either try revisiting again later or I‘ll put it the giveaway bin. I hear ya though, you can usually tell early on if you‘re going to click with a book or not 3mo
chasjjlee @Aims42 yes! I'm on page 52 but every time I go to pick it back up I just don't feel like reading it. So maybe it's time to call it quits. 3mo
Aims42 @chasjjlee That was my last book, I made it past the 50 page marker and was intrigued to continue but the level of intrigue never moved up. By the time I got to page 300 (with still 80 pages to go) I was literally groaning to just finish it 😂 3mo

Soubhiville I‘ll bail at any page once I realize I don‘t care for the book. My TBR shelf is stuffed, so I don‘t feel bad moving on to something I like better! 3mo
chasjjlee @Soubhiville Yes, I love that! Life's too short to read books that don't make you happy ❤️. 3mo
Larkken It depends why I‘m reading it… this last one I got as an arc, so I got halfway through, then cheated by reading the end 😬 3mo
Clwojick I normally try to make it to the first 100 pages, or the first hour of an audiobook. But sometimes within the first chapter of a book I know it‘s not for me, and I‘ll pass earlier. 3mo
Kimzey It usually happens that I just get pulled into another book and never get back to the one that didn‘t hold my interest. Not always a conscious decision to quit a book. 2mo

I have never really thought about the amount of pages that I've read. But on StoryGraph they do a page count so I was curious...I tend to stay in the same(ish) page count every month vs. my book count fluctuating a bit. Thought that was interesting.

Okay this looks chaotic but, whatever 😂 it got out of hand this month.

Finished tagged book last night and holy 🔥, that book was so good and I'm so glad it's a giant character series. Can't wait to dive into all of them!

Oh, and this months theme challenge was Graphic Novels and I was super excited about it but I quickly learned that those are not my favorite thing to read....so I only made it through 3 of them 🤷‍♀️.

This month's challenge is Graphic Novels!

I am new to graphic novels. I've only read Heartstopper, which honestly set the bar high IMO (and don't get me started on the TV series, that's my new comfort series!!).

I have a few that I've bought this year and saved them to read in May. I'm starting with the tagged book, can't wait!

These ⬆️ are all the physical books I read in March (and only 3 ebooks). I think I did pretty well sticking to it.

Tagged was my 2nd fav book this month, I REALLY enjoyed it and immediately watched the movie afterwards and LOVED that too!

I enjoyed every one of these books except for All Your Perfects. That book was...well just not enjoyable.

I made a few changes to the reading bracket so you can put the book cover in each space instead of typing out the title.
