One Dark Window | Rachel Gillig

I want to give this book all the stars. I think this is one of my favorite reads of the year and need the sequel like yesterday. I love the magic system and the cast of characters. I was not fully expecting the ending. One of the characters is one that you love then hate then not sure how to fill. It will be interesting to see what they do in the next book. #fantasy #fantasyromance #romantsy #favoriteread

A Promise of Fire | Amanda Bouchet

Oh this was a good one. I'm not overly familiar with high fantasy so not sure it would be considered that but I love the magic and world building in this one. The romance was good if a little cringy at the end a few times but I really liked it otherwise. #audiobook #scribd #fantasy #fantasyromance #romantsy

This one was rage inducing. I knew it would be bad going into it but I never realized just how bad. I'm still trying to process some of the examples the author used. #audiobook #scribd #nonfiction

I wanted to like this one. It started out so promisingly & the mystery was interesting.For the mystery alone, I will probably attempt the next book since it wasn't resolved in this one.Philosophy is not a strong point for me but even to me, it seemed to be trying too hard to include so much.Honestly half of it didn't make sense even after listening to it several times & the mmc was just obnoxious when he was trying to explain it.#scribd #audiobook

Ok I feel a little weird posting this but just hoping to find people would like to give a book a 2nd home. I'm selling some books on Pango Books. Mostly YA fantasy and historical fiction if anyone is interested. I really like this website and buying from other bookworms. It's a great way to get rid of books for someone else to enjoy. #pangobooks #usedbooks

In 8th grade, I came across R.L. Stine Fear Street series and to my surprise, my mom bought them for me. I thought she wouldn't because they would be too scary for me. I realize now, she was just happy I was reading again. This series is what really put me into reading and I'm so excited to re-visit them again. #horror #ya #spooky #fearstreet (also please ignore my son's foot in the picture 😄)

This would have been more interesting if parts weren't so tedious. You would hear the whole story & then at the end, there would be a news article or poem from that time explaining the whole story...again. The author was also reaching a little on some of the comparisons w/ other famous killers. Overall it had some interesting stories however. #audiobook #scribd #truecrime

I love Mariana Zapata & she is the queen of slow burns(& I do mean slow). I have yet to dislike anything she has written. This one was not like her normal stories & she stated a little out of her comfort zone but I think she did really well with it.It still sounded like one of her books but was different in a good way. I hope she does some more stories in this world.It would be interesting to see what she comes up with. #kindle #romantsy #slowburn

A Cursed Kiss | Jenny Hickman

This was everything I ever wanted in a fantasy romance. It has adventure, some angst, a possibility morally gray love interest that was totally swoon worthy and interesting world building that the author used to address real life issues It did start slow more than made up for it once the story got started. The narration of it was just 👌 and a duet narration which made it better. #fantasy #fantasyromance #fae #audible #audiobook

I have mixed feelings about this book but I enjoyed the creepy parts in the middle and the ending enough to give it a pick. The beginning was slow but I loved the layout of the book, like an Ikea catalog. #horror #ghosts #paranormal

Hi 👋. It's been so long since I have been on here that I would be surprised if people knew who I was still. I had a very painful book slump that lasted 6 months. I am finally out of it (thank god) so I'm going to try to be better at posting now. I have also changed what genres I want to read right now. Horror & gothic are the main ones now. Just wanted to share my newest book. It's gorgeous 😍.

Not my favorite from this author but not terrible either. Again there was instalove though which always makes me cringe. Saying I love you after only a week is a no go for me. This is the first one I have read that actually takes place in Russia and not the US so that was a little interesting. #mafia #kindle #kindleunlimited #romantsy #bratva

This was a pretty decent Mafia romance. Since a large chunk of the book takes place with the first week of the MC giving birth, some of the situations made me cringe imagining what that would have felt like. I'm sure I will get to book 2 at some point but ready to step away from this one for now. #kindle #kindleunlimited #mafia #bratva #romantsy

This was a rollercoaster and I'm still not sure how I feel about the love interest. What he did at the beginning of the book before he knew the truth was horrific and I'm not sure if I was the MC, that I could forgive him. I guessed the villain about halfway through but the author threw in enough wrenches, that I wasn't 100% sure until the end. Overall, an entertaining read. #darkromance #kindle #kindleunlimited

My audiobooks lately have only been so-so I feel like. This one was ok but the love interest was not really the grump they made him sound like. I was really wanting a good grumpy/sunshine romance. It was also another where the love was too much instalove. Maybe the next one...#audiobook #scribd #romantsy

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I picked it up for the pluc size mc & quite honestly, wasn't expecting it to be as deep as it was. It's a bully romance but one that takes place after the bullying. When the bully regrets what he did & we find out how he ended up being how he was & that the mc was not as innocent as she thought she was in the bullying as we were lead to believe at the beginning. #Kindle #kindleunlimited #bully #romansty

Not going to lie, TL Swan does very good smut. On top of that though, she also knows how to tell a good story and tug on your heartstrings. I cried, ok actually bawled like a baby during this one. The epilogue was a little too long but other, it was a great story. #audible #audiobook #romance #romantsy

This book got me right in the feels. It's about 700 pages and I finished it in 3 days which I have never done. The MC is plus size and a lot of her inner monologue hit very close to home. Even though what the love interest did was awful, he redeemed himself by the end. You definitely go through a lot of emotions for both characters. This is by far a 5⭐️ read and a new favorite. #kindle #kindleunlimited #romantsy

I was pretty happy with the picks this month since I skipped the last few months because nothing caught my eye.

So a pretty good way to start this week. #botm #botmbff #romance #fantasy

Gothic romances will forever be my favorite. It's hard to find modern gothic romances. Most are classics or historical fiction so I was excited when I found this one. I wish this book was longer and went into more detail about the fables, islands and curse. The atmosphere and paranormal elements were perfect however and completely made this book. #gothicromance #romantsy
