Goodbye November, it was fun. It really was. 🙂 I hope everyone had a great month and my fellow Americans enjoyed their Thanksgiving. I cooked a turkey with all the trimmings and my family is still alive to talk about it.
It was kind of a weird reading month for me. Looking back it was an ok month but I guess because I’ve been so busy with all kinds of crazy stuff, I didn’t focus that much on the TBR pile.
Here are the stats for my November reading roundup:
- 2 – 5 heart ratings
- 5 – 4 heart ratings
- 2 – 3.5 heart rating
- 1 – 3 heart ratings
- 1 – 2.5 heart rating
- 1 – 2 heart rating
Never Have I Ever by Alisha Rai: 3.5 hearts
I liked this one, very hot and steamy. Just a problem or two that bothered me, I’ll talk about it in an upcoming review.
The Spurned Viscountess by Shelley Munro: 3.5 hearts
I enjoyed this one but I think had potential to be even better than it was. I felt the pacing was a little slow at times but I liked the mystery and the setting was great. Review to come.
Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh: 4 hearts
I was hesitant to read this series since Angels don’t always work for me. I did’t warm up to the heroine right away but I eventually settled in and was eager for the next book.
Archangel’s Kiss by Nalini Singh: 5 hearts
Oh wow, I loved this book. I loved that the hero and heroine are so in love and they don’t fight it. Nalini Singh writes some of the sexiest love scenes ever!
A Scarlet Past by Evanne Lorraine: 1 heart
This a was a miss for me. Not a lot happened, lacked setting and the love scenes lacked passion and emotional connection. Review to come.
The Princess in His Bed by Lila DiPasqua: 4 hearts
This is the second book by Lila DiPasqua, an anthology of three fairy tales retold. Very sexy, and a lot of fun to read. Looking forward to more from this author. Keep an eye out for a big holiday giveaway from Berkley on the blog in a few days. 🙂
Forever In Lingerie by Gina Gordon: 2 hearts
When it comes to erotic romance we all have our limits on how far we’re willing to go and certain practices and terms that don’t work. It’s just a matter of preference. That was the main problem I had with this book. Just not for me.
Cowgirls Don’t Cry by Lorelei James: 4 hearts
This is book ten in this series and I wondered if I was going to get tired of these cowboys. Oh.Hell.No.
Lipstick on His Collar by Inez Kelley: 4 hearts
I worried when I first started this book, wasn’t sure I liked where it was going. But I really like this author and should have known she wouldn’t let me down. A fun, sexy romance. Review to come.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: 3 hearts
It’s hard to say why I didn’t like the final book in this trilogy as much as I liked it’s predecessors. Perhaps the pre-release hype affected my expectations? I’m not sure. I enjoyed this book, full of action and this was one of the best YA series I’ve read, but I felt this final book didn’t live up to the first two in the series.
Firewalker by Allyson James: 4 hearts
This is the second book in this series and I will be continuing to read as new books are released. The characters are fresh, great action, interesting magic, plus there is a bisexual magic mirror. 🙂
Alpha by Rachel Vincent: 5 hearts
Le sigh. Last book in the series and I’m happy with how all the loose ends wrapped up. I wanted an epilogue but other than that, I was happy.
Bloodfever Karen Marie Moning (currently reading)
Re-reading for the Fever Series read-along
Mine Till Midnight Lisa Kleypas (currently reading)
My first Lisa Kleypas ever. I’m listening to this on audio. I love historicals on audio, the accents are gorgeous.
That was my month in books. How does your list compare? Anything I need to add to the TBR?
