If it's not *Romance* I'm not buying. Still currently heartbroken that the Simon and Baz adventures have concluded...

1. The Nobleman's Guide to Scandal & Shipwrecks. Just started it.

2. It is very rainy and 55°F.

3. We don't get too many very cold days but on the rare occasion that we do, my favorite thing is to make some hot tea or coffee and bundle up under a blanket in my reading corner.

Really wanted to give this book a try. I was very invested in her season and obviously wanted to hear all the dirty details 🤫.

I'm liking it okay so far. I definitely don't think nonfiction is for me though. But I love Hannah Brown and feel sad for all the sh*t she's had to deal with.

Also, being able to match my bookmark with my book is the reason I have a billion bookmarks 😂.

Anyone else doing any of the Story Graph reading challenges? If so, which ones? And do you only add the books on Story Graph or do you also do a notebook with all your challenges in there?

These are the ones I've committed to so far but might add some more later.
Would love to see what everyone else is doing :)

(Tagged my current read -- which btw is SO pulling at my heartstrings right now)

JamieArc I‘m doing the #Booked2022 reading challenge. I‘m keeping track on StoryGraph, but I also love spreadsheets so I have a spreadsheet for it too. 6d
chasjjlee @JamieArc that's awesome ♥️ I keep track in my notebook too. I just learned about the Story Graph challenges so I definitely wanted to participate this year. I'll have to check out the booked2022 challenge 👍. 6d
StayCurious I‘m doing some of the romance tropes challenges on StoryGraph (ok a lot of them) - I also started a reading journal to help keep track. 5d
chasjjlee @StayCurious love the romance tropes! I want to add more challenges to my list because I love creating them in my notebooks ♥️. If you post your journals tag me 🙂 I'd love to see them! 5d

I am so sad right now. I don't know what's going on with Kat Silver, the author of the Flame Born series, but all of her social media is down and this is what her website says. ^
This is one of my favorite series. I tried to buy the 2nd book in paperback today and this is what I found EVERYWHERE. You can't even buy the e-book anymore. I hope the author is okay.
Have y'all ever seen anything like this happen?

This was an interesting story 🤔. Corbin was so different from any other character I've read before. I was a little lost at certain parts of the story but I enjoyed the connection these two had.

Nutmegnc I enjoyed this one. 1w
chasjjlee @Nutmegnc it was sweet and different. I'm glad I did the list swap because I'm finding these books that I haven't seen before ♥️. 1w
Nutmegnc I think I‘ve read most, if not all by this author. This one remains a bit different but I still liked enough to read twice 🥰. 7d

This book was surprisingly deeper than I expected it to be. I really felt his misunderstanding of his own self worth (I mean who hasn't had a Joe in their life, right).

What a way to start out the year!

This series gave me life! I haven't loved a couple like this since Simon and Baz (which were completely different from Damen & Laurent). But when I tell you I felt it 👏👏! Everything, I just FELT everything!

I don't want to move on yet, it was just sooo good!

For all the pain we endured through book one, IT WAS WORTH IT!

I knew reading the 2nd book would give me clarity.
This is a beautiful, complicated, painful love story that is just everything I've been missing in my life! I've never read a book quite like this.

I am about 130 pages into book 3 and I am ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT.
I love this series!

I 📖 1/2 and 🎧 to 1/2. Can I just SHOUT how amazing this narrator was?! Mind you I've only listened to maybe 3 audio books ever but....this man was so wonderful. Highly HIGHLY recommend listening to this one.

People absolutely gag about this book. And it was definitely well written and deserving of all the awards. However, I felt like the romance was taking a backseat. (Y'all know I come for the romance and stay for the story 😅) 👇

chasjjlee I expected to be blown away by the love story. You know, like Simon & Baz 😁. I felt like I could feel and see and taste the love that Baz had for Simon. But this was a little less passionate I guess.

The 1st half was very much about their romance developing and I loved that but the 2nd half was.....idk, not that. 👇

chasjjlee I think it's just a personal thing because it was no doubt a beautifully written story. I just wanted to feel their love and their connection more than I did.

Still thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it 4 (memorable 😉)⭐'s!

I love a good historical romance! This was just the right amount of sugar & spice. This book REALLY pulled me out of my reading slump.

A gentleman turned molly house worker cut off by his family is barely scraping by + A stonecutter turned Earl needing help learning how to be a gentleman = a professional business deal turned spicy romantic encounter.

All in all, a book worth melting for 👏.

Rounding out my bingo with Him. This book has been on my TBR since before I ever even picked up a MM book! I've seen this book talked about the most (and maybe that's why I put it off for so long). I'm glad I FINALLY grabbed this book, it was a friends-to-lovers breath of fresh air! Wouldn't quite give it 5 stars because there was a bit of a hiccup IMO. But solid 4⭐. Y'all know I'm a sucker for well written characters and I LOVED me some Wes! ⬇

chasjjlee I have already started the 2nd book, Us, and I'm looking forward to getting to read more of Wes & Jamie's story.

I had fun with my bingo for this month (not as much fun as last month, thank you to the Gallagher/Milkovich clan 😅).

Not sure if I'm doing bingo for December or not, haven't decided. What do you think @charityblee?

I liked the idea of this book...but not the result. It's written in third person and if it's not done damn near perfectly *cough* The Charm Offensive/Queer Principles/RW&RB *cough* then it can be hard to connect with the characters. And let me tell you...I didn't connect.
Also the way things were said in this book confused me a little bit and I just found it hard to follow. I really wanted to like this one but it just didn't hold my attention 😕.

I love the Tails x Horns world. This is book 2 (but can be read as a standalone). I liked the first book, You to Me, a little bit more than this one but still really enjoyed Just not You.
There's a little bit if mystery going on in the background and these characters phenomenal 👌.

Ho Ho Ho-ly sh**! This book was a little slice of winter wonderland heaven. Well a messed up werewolf version of a winter wonderland 🤷‍♀️. With zombies. I feel like I'm not selling this 😂.
Short read. Multiple POV. And just everything I needed from these characters! It was kind of like an extended epilogue but Christmas themed-ish. Idk, I freaking loved it!

It's the 3rd book in the mismatched mates series, should definitely read them in order.

It took me 15 forevers to finish this book because "Shameless" **exists** and I just discovered it ?‍♀️. So I've been shamelessly binging and this poor precious book took the backseat.

Well, the Gallagher's did not take away from how lovely this book was. It was slow to start and lost me here and there but midway through we get a strong and beautiful story developing. Great historical romance.

My bingo really took a hit due to Shameless ?.

I am really no good at reviews but.....

This book was so good. SO GOOD. I don't normally like rom-com books so I fully expected to not like this and DNF it. The total opposite happened. I could not put this book down. The foundation of this story...just wow. I'm absolutely here for it.

See, I've told you how much I loved it without actually telling you anything about it.

Mehso-so

It's hard to review this book because my thoughts are a little scattered on it.
📕I love these characters. Troy was shy on the exterior but strong when it counted. And Jackson couldn't help but to be loving and caring despite his role as “the popular football player“.
📕There were loads of things that didn't flow or make any sense in this story & there were some major cringe moments...but I think I liked the characters enough to overlook that.
⭐⭐⭐
