I realized that I haven’t done a post on my blog in ages, so I thought I would share my current reads. If you want to keep up with me more regularly, I’m on Facebook where I have a private reader group and Twitter! Let me know if you decide to read along with me!
Shut Up and Kiss Me by Christie Craig
This book is about a woman who comes to a Native American reservation town to help promote tourism, but she becomes the target of a murderer and ends up in the arms of the sheriff. I love that this book gives you insight into the relationships of everyone in the sheriff’s family while still focusing on the two main characters; however, I find that the male characters are all incredibly misogynistic. Overlooking that problematic aspect, it’s an enjoyable read and well-written. I’m looking forward to the conclusion of the mystery.
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
This is the first book in the Jessica Darling Series. I expected it to have a lot of fluff and teen angst (and it does), but it also covers more controversial topics like drug use, body image, social hierarchies, and family dynamics. It’s a little outdated, but it’s a decent coming of age story.
The Vampire’s Warden by S.J. Wright
This is the first book in the Undead in Brown County Series. The main character is a young woman who, after the death of her father, finds out that her family’s property holds a secret. This book is obviously about vampires, and it seems like there’s a building love triangle with two possible male love interests. The story itself is enjoyable; although, it feels a bit rushed at times, leaving things with inadequate explanations.
All In by Alexa Land
This is the second book in the Firsts and Forevers Series. I have loved every book I’ve read by this author. I started this series at book 3, so I’m catching up with the first two now. The characters in this series are always lovable and there’s a lot of comedic relief in every story. I would recommend that you read them all.
Michael’s Awakening by Jaclyn Osborn
I only recently started this book, so I haven’t fully formed my opinion on it yet. The main characters are a man who obviously has a tortured past and a hairdresser who seems a little self-centered.
Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks
I’m really enjoying this book so far. The female protagonist is a psychic on the run from a killer. She seeks help from a billionaire who owes her a huge debt, and those manly protective instincts kick in. I like the characters and the writing. The connection between them seems a little rushed, but I’m definitely guilty of that in my books as well, so I can’t complain.
This Beautiful Thing by Amanda Heath
This book has been a disappointment so far, but I always hold out hope until the end. I can’t leave a story unfinished.
