Blurb:
It was the worst day of my life.

I know most people say that about something obviously horrific—a first heartbreak, the discovery of a fatal illness, or the funeral of a loved one—but my situation was a little different.
Not only was it my wedding day, but it was also the day I chose to die.

Two men.
The first, my Master, my captor, and my impossible love.
The other, his brother, a mafioso I was meant to ensnare and ruin.

If I had any hope of living a normal life reunited with my family, I had to make a choice.
End my old life as I knew it and start fresh, or take down the monsters that hunted me and haunted my Master.

In the end, the decision was never really mine to make. Because Alexander Davenport would come to claim me even in death.

Kate you have my standing ovation
Wow wow wow 😯
I don’t know how you did this, I don’t know where this came from but thank you for it

This book will envelope you in a cloud and wont let you breath
It was as if as I read it and the story just grew deeper and deeper I kept getting more and more enveloped by the STORM that is this book; before I knew it I didn’t eat, ignored hunger entirely to just have this story take over my whole self until it was done.

Everytime you’re taken to the past Mila and Lucas just start to plant themselves inside you their love cementing and becoming clearer, making their present that much more heartbreaking.

Is there anything better than enduring love?
witnessing a couple’s love grow, take root, cement and flourish and then watch them fight for what they’ve cultivated?

Really this is so unlike anything else.
I haven’t been able to pick up anything since I finished this

Believe the hype guys go read this
It’s one of a kind

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Markham Hall, #1) by Sierra Simone

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Markham Hall, #1)The Awakening of Ivy Leavold by Sierra Simone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


HOTTER THAN SIN ALERT THIS WHOLE SERIES IS LITERALLY JUST A LIVING FLAME

This was so good! I’ve never read a historical erotica before and now I want to find them all and read them

this had such deliciously dark and gothic undertones and such erotic scenes it made a perfect mix.
There is also this mystery in the background that slowly makes itself the center of the story…and adds a healthy dose of fear to the story that just makes it irresistible.

Motion (Laws of Physics, #1; Hypothesis, #2.1) by Penny Reid

Motion (Laws of Physics, #1; Hypothesis, #2.1)Motion by Penny Reid

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


every star in the sky

ok you know how theres “lisa kleypas magic” well theres such a thing as “Penny Reid Magic” and its just as flipping potent and soul crushingly perfect.

Penny Reid writes books that make me both squeal internally and externally. The kind of books that I have to put down for a second because I can’t believe how much a character made me gush; The kind of stories that I become catatonic over. She gives me with her stories a swell of the heart that only Lisa Kleypas has ever given me before.

guys this story omg.

I laughed out loud so much at how cute these two are. The one liners that Abram had oh geez. And there was this intense TENSION that gave me flurries all over. I’m so upset and I have a headache because things better be happy and gush in the next book I dont want to live in this angst What a cliffhanger my head in swirling with how its going to turn out. I’m so happy at myself for waiting for all the books to be out before I started the series.

Penny you rock, I love you

November Wrap Up

Its time for a November Wrap up!
Alright guys so I’m sorry for not updating the blog as much and not writing reviews I feel so drained of reviews lately the more a like a book the more pressure I feel write a great review and then I just don’t write one….also I don’t just read romance and I wanted to only post reviews for the romance I read but if you’d like me to write a review for every book no matter the genre leave a comment below.

So I managed to read 7 books this month, which I think is pretty darn good, especially considering I didn’t rate anything lower than 4 stars and most of the books I read in November ended up on my favorites shelf. I read 2 eBooks, one audio book and the rest physical books so let’s get to it!

First book I read in November was

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken (middle grade, physical, 4 stars)
This was so unique! It defiantly had serious Halloween vibes especially Halloweentown atmosphere. In this book you follow Prosper Redding who inherits an ancient demon and escapes his family trying to sacrifice him. Reading this was just all around fun and light with the right amount of serious that at times I forgot it was a middle grade. As I don’t read much middle grade books I pictured the younger characters older. Every character is just so well fleshed out but all the points go to the history and atmosphere woven into the story. I could feel, taste and smell everything and I felt like I was in Salem right along with everyone. I recommend this for anyone who wants a light Halloween read.

Next book I finished was Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christy (Audiobook, Mystery, 5 stars) I listened to the newly released audible full cast production of this audio book and omg it added to the experience a thousand times over. This is already an incredible mystery book but with actors playing all the parts it was like listening to a movie. I did no guess who did it at all! And this book is not long so its just cozy, well written and vastly entertaining. I already added 3 other Agatha Christie books to my TBR pile. Also, Hercule Poirot is a legitimate badass and I want to be his best friend.

3rd book is My American Duchess by Eloisa James (ebook, historical romance, 5 stars) This one ended up on my favorites and re readable shelves. Man this was magical. There wasn’t a single thing I didn’t love about this book. I kept kicking myself for not picking up Eloisa James sooner because this book just blew me the fuck away, honestly. It was filled with so much GUSH and SWOON. I highlighted so much! for more of my thoughts check out my review on the blog.

Next is Without Merit by Colleen Hoover. (YA, Physical, 5 stars) Leave it to the queen to stun us all with her newest book. Ok so I haven’t read every Colleen book because they are so impactful and stay with me days after I finish that I’m not always in the mood for her books so they stay unread for a while. But this one I knew I had to read ASAP. I’m so glad I did, this is the most important book I’ve read all year. There is so much representation in this book that every single teenager should read it. But first and foremost this book is about mental health and its probably the best mental health book besides the bell jar by Sylvia Plath that I’ve ever read.

Kissing Tolstoy by Penny Reid (New Adult, ebook, 5 stars) this book and the hating game are punching themselves in my head for the top contemporary spot. This was fucking amazing. I couldn’t stop smiling reading this book and I basically told everyone I know who reads books to read it because it was THAT GOOD. Penny Reid never lets me down, as an author she writes books that I feel like are made personally for me. I wrote a review for this one so check it out for more rambling.

Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6 ) by Sarah J Maas (New Adult fantasy, Physical 4,5 stars) I wasn’t going to read it because I’ve been so disillusioned by SJM mostly because of the disaster that was ACOWAR. But this book was a diamond in the ruff. It was so good! It surprised me how good it was this is my favorite SJM book besides ACOMAF and this is defiantly the strongest SJM is as a writer. This book follows Chaol in the southern continent and its enthralling. The sights, smells the people. Finally there are POC and ethnic food! I never wanted to leave the southern continent. Honestly trudging through the first book in the series which is one of the worst books I’ve ever read, and the 2nd and not so good 3rd are worth it to get to this book. And I think I might be warming up to SJM a little but only if she keeps this up because this was impressive.

Last but not least, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden, (fantasy, historical fiction, physical, 5 stars) Every time I think about this book I shiver, and not because it’s a book about the magic of winter but because this book is winter. This book is magnificent. Its swirling with Russian magic, otherness, fear and acceptance. I want to re read this book every single winter. Katherine Arden understands folklore and magic like few authors do and I will gladly gobble up every single thing she writes. This was such a dazzling debut. A fresh retelling of Vasilisa the beauty meshed with so many other aspects of Russian folklore to leave you stunned by the weirdness and magic of it all. I can’t stop thinking about this book please go read it.

That’s it for my November wrap up guys! Now that I look at it all written out I had a great reading month every if I didn’t read too many books. I would usually write a TBR but I’ve been having an identity crisis when it comes to TBR’s I don’t stick to them and they’re constricting to me. So I haven’t written one in a while..but if you guys want them I will write them just write a comment saying that you do.

Kissing Tolstoy (Dear Professor, #1) by Penny Reid

Kissing Tolstoy (Dear Professor, #1)Kissing Tolstoy by Penny Reid

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


6+++++ “Andrei and Natasha” stars

Lord help me this book was like crack.


“You infect me, body and soul, with primitive thoughts of claiming and conquering. I do not know who I am when I touch you. I am no longer civilized, I am blood and heat and lust. I barely recognize myself.”

I’ve only ever felt this happy reading one other book and that’s The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.

GUYS. READ.THIS.RIGHT.NOW

Honestly

My cheeks hurt from grinning; I’ve highlighted so much Luca just made by list of best book boyfriends.

This book is about Anna, a quirky, nerdy girl who mistakenly emails the wrong person to ask him out on a date……the guy shows up they have a great time but she bolts! Before the date is over after he comes clean and tells her that she emailed the wrong person, but he was so charmed by her email he decided to show up anyways.

The guys name is Luca Kroft and he’s sexy leather wearing big, broad, Russian Lit professor….HER Russian lit professor. And she had no idea until she shows up to her much anticipated class and it’s the guy she bailed on from her date!

This was just so much fun so much gush!

“Men who ride motorcycles and wear leather like a second skin, and look hot doing it, they don’t date ladies who idolize Tolstoy. Tuesday night is trivia night for me, unless I have a new jigsaw puzzle I’m excited about or I’m in my tragic novel reading cave.”

Anna is so endearing! She loves puzzles, trivia night, tragic romance novels and Russian literature. She’s so incredibly down to earth and sweet and very opinionated! She’s also Bi- Racial. Ughghgh I love her. I loved absolutely everything about her. Penny Reid does such a fantastic job making a heroine that I’m always a bit taken aback when I read her books. They’re always so distinctly quirky. Thank god for that because I’m beyond tired of nice blonde heroines.

“She smells like wildflowers and quiet libraries, redolent of peace and excuberance.”

Ok Lets talk about Professor Luca Kroft. Aka F**** me Papi *pretend that’s in Russian* have you ever met a guy and just known right away that you wanna sit on their face…yea that’s how I feel about Luca. He made me tingly…everything that came out of his mouth made me melt and him and Anna are my O fucking T P. They are literally made for each other. He’s big blonde and blue eyed and just a manly nerd..I don’t know how to explain it. He’s so witty and passionate, he’s all heart and soul and he just doesn’t know what to do when Anna’s equal wit and passion fall into his life…I ate it up.

Alright, I’m just babbling because I just finished this book and I feel so lost. This book was my missing puzzle piece and now I have to go read Russian Literature and cry over my precious babies.
