Reading Round Up: November 15th-22nd

Happy Saturday friends! I am finally getting around to my round up of the gilmoreathon that I participated in onNovember 15-22. I read 6 books during this week and I am really proud of myself for that! I did read a novella and listen to an audio book so that helped!

For the prompts here is what I read.

  • Book set in a small town – Unforgiven
  • Mother/Daughter Relationship – Simmer Down and Ties That Tether
  • Set during Fall/Winter – Booked for Christmas
  • A Complicated Love Interest – Unforgiven, The Duke and I and Ties That Tether
  • Asian Representation – Simmer Down
  • Bake a fall treat and watch your favorite episode – I don’t bake so I made a fancy coffee and watched A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving.
  • Next book in series – Unforgiven

Simmer Down by Sarah Smith – 4 Stars This was a fun read about a grumpy guy, food trucks and Maui. I really enjoyed this story about Nikki who moves to Maui to help her mother run her food truck on Maui and ends up in a competition with a new food truck who tries to take their coveted spot. Of course what follows is a fun story about the two of them realizing they have more in common then a food truck parking spot. I always love a grumpy main character (whether male or female) and when they are British that is just a bonus! Fun semi-steamy romance!

The Duke and I by Julia Quinn – 5 Stars This was a reread for me as I am gearing up for The Bridgertons to come to Netflix in December. I forgot how much I really enjoyed this book and the banter between the two main characters. Daphne is number 4 in the family of 7 and the oldest girl. While trying to get away from a would be suitor she runs into the recently returned Duke of Hastings who is know to be a rogue. The two hit it off and end up deciding to pretend to form an attachment, both using each other for their own reasons. This ends up leading to real feelings and things escalate from there. I really like the way Julia Quinn writes her story, its full of great dialogue and a little progressive but still true to the time period. Highly recommend for a fun and steamy historical romance.

Unforgiven by Jay Crownover – 4 Stars Kody Lawton lost her first love in a tragic way and has never forgiven Hill Gamble for the role he played. Now years later he is telling her again that someone close to her has died. Hill Gamble has regrets and one of them is how things are with Kody. This was a fun enemies to lovers with a little second chance romance. I really liked both characters and the journey that had to go on to be together in the end. My only complaint is that I felt like the ending didn’t really resolve itself, it kind of wrapped up their budding relationship but left something big unfinished. Now I know this is part of the plot for book 3 but still I needed a little something more.

Ties that Tether by Jane Igharo – 4 Stars Azere is a Nigerian woman who moved to Canada with her mother and sister when she was 12 years old after her father passed away. Before his death Azere promised her father that she would marry a fellow Nigerian. After being on another disaster date that her mother set her up on, Azere meets Rafael and has a one night stand. A month later guess who shows up at her job as the new hire, Rafael! I really loved this book and the journey it took us on with Azere’s heritage while trying to live in a different country and stay true to who she is as a person. Both characters at times were frustrating with their lack of communication but in the end things get worked out. A fun and semi-steamy read!

Booked for Christmas by Lily Menon – 4 Stars This was a fun Holiday Novella that I picked up by one of my favorite YA authors Sandhya Menon, Lily Menon is her pen name for her adult titles. This story takes place a few days before Christmas about a Romance writer and one of her critics. Sophia Hart is throwing a Holiday party with some close friends when her worst critic shows up as someone’s plus one. The two end up getting snowed in together and what follows is a cute story. I don’t want to say too much as this is short story but if you are looking for a fun holiday read I would look into this one!

Winter Counts by David Heska Wanbli Weiden – 3 Stars This one was just ok for me, I thought the story was engaging and I kept wanting to read more to find out how it ended but I am not sure if it is one I will remember in a month or two. We follow Virgil Wounded Horse who is raising his teenage nephew and is an enforcer on a reservation in South Dakota. Virgil is hired to find out who is bring drugs onto the rez and decides to take on the task when his nephew overdoses on heroine. At times this story lost me with pacing of the story, I felt like we would go pages with not much happening. I was also not a fan of the ending, I need more then an ambiguous ending, I needed facts and follow up.

Book Blitz: The Price’s Bride 2 by J.J. McAvoy

The Prince’s Bride Part 2
J.J. McAvoy
(The Prince’s Bride #2)
Publication date: November 27th 2020

Can they handle what is to come?

Goodreads / Amazon / iBooks / Kobo

EXCERPT:

“Is there wine?” he asked, stepping in farther.

And that was when the words came back to me. “We haven’t seen each other in months, and the first thing you ask me about is wine?” I couldn’t believe it.

“You’re right. That was rude,” he said gently, walking up to me.

“Being rude isn’t the point, Gale. How could you—”

“My first question should have been, how are you, Odette?” he whispered, placing his hand on my cheek, and it was like he had shocked me. Electricity flowed throughout my veins, and the hair on my arms stood up, so I had to step back away from his touch.

“What do you think you are doing?” I snapped.

“He dropped his hands, his gaze softening. “Can we save our argument for the morning? It has been a very long day, and I really need some sleep.”

“What?”

He didn’t answer me; instead, he took off his jacket and walked to the bedroom.

“What are you doing?” I rushed to stand in front of him. “If you want to sleep, go back to your palace!”

“My wife isn’t in the palace. She is here, and I can hardly let her spend her first night here alone, now can I?” he said as if it were the most obvious thing in the world. Like oh, of course, you shouldn’t look directly at the sun.

“So, there is the wine.” He snickered and walked around me again into the bedroom, tossing his coat onto the ottoman at the end of the bed, grabbing my unfinished glass to drink from it.

“Gale!”

“Hmm?” He looked at me, still drinking.

He—I—What was he doing right now? Breathe, Odette. Breathe. “Gale, you cannot just break into my bedroom, demand to sleep, and drink my wine like nothing has happened—like we don’t need to talk.”

Book Blitz: Christmasly Obedient by Julia Kent

Christmasly Obedient
Julia Kent
Publication date: November 24th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance

Tree picking in glorious, downeast Maine. Snow. Santa. Roaring fires, people you love, and a good life. What more could a guy want?

Or, rather, two guys?

Mike and Jeremy have a quiet life with Lydia, on her parents’ family campground in Verily, Maine. It’s a little boring, sure, but after the craziness of their old lives, what’s wrong with boring?

Besides, Jeremy and Mike find Lydia anything but.

As Christmas looms, and an unexpected oops leaves them all in a state of uncertainty, they have to ask themselves: is it time to let life be a little less boring?

And what’s inside that slim box Lydia’s giving them both on Christmas morning?

Christmasly Obedient is a new holiday book in Julia Kent’s USA Today bestselling Obedient series.

The Obedient Series includes:

Maliciously Obedient
Suspiciously Obedient
Deliciously Obedient

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

EXCERPT:

Jeremy pulled off his coat and slid his arms around Lydia, burying his nose in her neck. The strange sense of being perched on the edge of the world, obscured in white and disconnected from everything abated with each breath, the tick-tock of the mantel clock tracking a different kind of time.

“You’re wet!” Lydia squealed. “And stubbly!”

He didn’t stop. Her squirming turned to a tense freeze, then a slow melt in his arms. She stayed in place, he knew, because she sensed his need.

That was love. Real love.

Mike walked into Jeremy’s line of vision, carrying two open beers, one ready to hand to Jeremy. Ice-blue eyes met his, powerful and knowing. Something deeper than relief took over Jeremy’s cells as he stood there, Lydia touching him, Mike in the same frame, too.

His people. He had his people. That’s all he really needed.

“Hey,” Lydia said softly in his ear. “What’s wrong?”

Jeremy shook his head and just inhaled deeply. The change of plans was welcome. Christmas had come early to the small campground in Maine. He cradled Lydia’s face in his hands and kissed her, the taste of her tongue a tether, holding him in place, keep-ing him from tipping over the edge and into the pale, snowy abyss.

As the kiss deepened, he felt Mike’s hand on his shoulder, heard the cackle of Madge’s ribald comment, smelled the heady scent of burning wood.

And he was home.

Really home.

Let’s Talk Bookish: November 27th

Happy day after Thanksgiving for my friends who participate! I hope everyone had a great day no matter what they did! Today we are talking about rereading books for our Let’s Talk Bookish topic today it was suggested by Aria @ Book Nook Bits. The Let’s Talk Bookish Meme is a weekly meme that is created and hosted by Rukky@EternityBooks and Dani@Literary Lion.

Do you reread books? How often? Yes I reread books all the time! Sometimes for buddy reads with reads, sometimes for book slumps and mostly because I want a comfort read.

Do you reread a series before reading the newest book? Not usually, if its been years and I don’t remember a lot about the series I might.

Is there a certain book or series that you always come back to reread? Yes! I reread Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series all the time. I also reread Penny Reid’s and Shelly Laurenstons books and The Hating Game.

Do you count rereads towards your monthly/yearly goals? I do for the stats I keep in my bullet journal but not towards my goodreads goal.

Do you feel guilty about rereading books? Not usually, I am a mood reader so I usually only pick up what I am in the mood for.

Do you reread books? If so, what are your favorites?

Book Blitz: Ruinsong by Julia Ember

Ruinsong
Julia Ember
Published by: Farrar Straus and Giroux
Publication date: November 24th 2020
Genres: Fantasy, LGBTQ+, Romance, Young Adult

In Julia Ember’s dark and lush LGBTQ+ romantic fantasy Ruinsong, two young women from rival factions must work together to reunite their country, as they wrestle with their feelings for each other.

Her voice was her prison…
Now it’s her weapon.

In a world where magic is sung, a powerful mage named Cadence must choose between the two. For years, she has been forced to torture her country’s disgraced nobility at her ruthless queen’s bidding.

But when she is reunited with her childhood friend, a noblewoman with ties to the underground rebellion, she must finally make a choice: Take a stand to free their country from oppression, or follow in the queen’s footsteps and become a monster herself.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

EXCERPT:

Cadence

I allow Lacerde to dress me without turning to examine myself in the mirror. I don’t want to see how I look, how they’ve fashioned me. In my mind, I already see stains of blood on the muslin fabric of my skirt, dotting the white leather of my gloves. Lacerde adjusts my skirt and smooths my hair. Then, with a grunt, she bends down and buffs my new shoes to a gleam.

She opens the door for me so I don’t get my gloves dirty and leads me down the dark corridor. My dressing room is the only one in use. All the others are boarded up, so that no one will use them to hide.

I imagine what the Opera Hall must have been like years ago, when so many singers performed here together for more willing audiences. The corridors would have been filled with the sounds of laughter, rustling taffeta costumes, and a chorus of warm-up scales. Above, the audience would be straining to get inside the house, clinking glasses together at the theatre bar, speculating on the wonders to come.

If I strain my ear, I can still hear the echo of their merriment in the walls, obscured by the more recent cacophony of despair and pain. The smell of thousands of spellsongs, layered atop one another for centuries, lingers in the musty air. It’s been eight years since this place functioned as a real theatre, but the Opera Hall remembers.

We climb the stairs up onto the stage. Elene and Lord Durand, her newly elevated pet footman, stand together on the edge, shouting instructions down to the conductor in the orchestra pit.

Elene glances up and nods to Lacerde, who positions me at center stage without releasing me. It’s as if they think I will run, even though there is no where to go.

No one has dimmed the gas lamps that line the theatre’s aisles yet, so I have a full view. The theatre is much grander than our replica at the academy. The ceiling bears a centuries-old mural of Adela gifting the first mage with magic. The singer kneels beside the sacred pool, and the goddess rises from the water, her mouth open with song and her arms spread wide. Musical notes surround them, each flecked with real gold leaf.

Portraits of the three other goddesses border the mural. Odetta, the goddess of spring and renewal, wearing a silver mask that covers her eyes and cheeks, and holding a sparrow’s skeleton in her cupped hands. Karina, goddess of justice and winter, thin and draped in a linen sheath, with her arms wide. Marena, the autumn goddess of war, chin lifted proudly, staring down with her hypnotic purple eyes, bejeweled with human teeth.

Beneath, row upon row of tightly packed red velvet seats stretch back to the imposing black doors at the rear of the theatre. They’re made from mageglass, a material designed by the elementals: sand spun, dyed and hardened so that not even diamond bullets could shatter it. Hundreds of people will fill the house tonight. Dame Ava, the queen’s former principal, told me that sometimes there are so many that folk have to stand along the walls.

My knees start to shake at the sight. My mouth goes dry.

All these seats. All these people. My unshed tears blur the rows of red seats together, like a smear of blood.

Author Bio:

Julia Ember is the author of The Seafarer’s Kiss duology, a Norse myth inspired retelling of The Little Mermaid, published by Interlude Press (Duet Books), and Ruinsong, a standalone high fantasy reimagining of The Phantom of the Opera, forthcoming from Macmillan Kids (FSG) in November 2020. She lives with her wife and two fluffy cats in the Pacific Northwest.

Warning: this novel contains two fire-breathing unicorns on a napalm bender, action, adventure, chaos, mayhem, humor, and bodies. Proceed with caution.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

EXCERPT:

The father I hadn’t met until this morning walked me down the aisle, but Quinn’s hands holding mine kept me from running in terror at so many people witnessing me marrying someone like him. I questioned everything about my odd life. Me, the Calamity Queen, marry him? It took a few moments to remember I’d already married him once. I’d asked that same question then, too. He’d laughed, and then he’d goaded me until I’d done what he wanted, which involved me marrying him.

Crazy man.

There’d been a bunch of witnesses to that courthouse madness, too, and I’d survived through it mostly unscathed. Most of the witnesses to our first wedding had been too busy brawling with each other to pay any attention to me signing the papers that gave Samuel Leviticus Quinn certain rights to me, but that didn’t matter.

Reminding myself his signature on the same papers meant I got rights to him did a good job of steadying my rattled nerves.

No matter how many times I failed to tell him properly, I loved him.

To endure so many people staring at me, all I needed to do was remember a few key things. After the vows came the food, after the food came a show of gorgons petrifying each other during a brawl, and after the brawling came the pampering in our suite, which would be devoid of children for at least twenty-four hours, courtesy of an assortment of parents and grandparents.

I needed a lot longer than twenty-four hours to come to terms with having two pairs of parents.

One set hated me.

The other, who I’d learned about just yesterday, loved me.

I needed a lot longer than twenty-four hours to adjust to my life’s new circumstances.

First, I needed to survive through my second wedding. Tomorrow, I would resume my quest to be the best mother possible for our pair of orphaned gorgon children, who would spend the rest of the day and most of tomorrow socializing with the other gorgons in attendance, most of whom were related to my husband in one way or another.

Staring at Quinn and refusing to acknowledge anyone else in the Venetian’s canals would help with that, at least until we made it to the food portion of our wedding day. Once the food came around, I didn’t care who watched me devour steak, steak, and even more steak.

The fire-breathing, meat-eating unicorn in me loved steak almost as much as I loved the man who’d turned my life upside down on me.

My husband made no effort to hide his amusement, and he squeezed my hands while we both ignored the minister, who did a pretty damned good job of impersonating Elvis while reading the scripted sermon. He went on and on about the responsibilities of married couples, husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers, along with the death-do-we-part stuff I doubted applied to us at all thanks to our mishmash of crazy relatives, most of whom were in attendance.

A few too many gods and goddesses for my comfort joined almost every damned cop in our precinct to witness us confess our love to each other. Or, at a minimum, blurt ‘I do’ in some horrifically embarrassing fashion.

I had trouble with the basics, and nothing had changed since I’d married my gorgon-incubus doohickey the first time.

“You can look somewhere other than me if you want,” Quinn whispered, leaning closer to me.

I debated stealing a kiss before the official kissing portion of the ceremony, although the dumb veil kept getting in my way. Quinn had already shunted the damned thing back, but it kept falling wherever it wanted, to the point I wanted to light it on fire.

Nobody had warned me how much of a pain in the ass wedding dresses could be. And the heels? The heels might do me in. What had I done to deserve the damned heels, especially with the asshole pair of parents uninvited from the ceremony? While inserting my heels into their asses would have made my day, having a pair of parents who actually wanted me trumped my petty desire for revenge.

Huh. Somehow, I’d grown up since meeting Quinn, although only a little.

I forced my attention back on my husband. “If I look anywhere other than at you, I will see them staring at me. You’re prettier than they are, and I absolutely refuse to be ashamed of this.”

A few months ago, I would have gone and cried in the bathroom had I said that where anyone might hear me.

The Elvis impersonator grinned. “He really is prettier than everyone else here. You’re a very lucky woman.”

Oops. I shrugged, but I also smiled. “It’s true. I can’t help it. He’s in a suit. He can’t wear dress uniforms at home. I get ideas. I am enjoying this while it lasts. Someone is going to take a picture of him in his suit, and I will end up being bribed for copies of the pictures. I’ll have to ration the pictures out. I make him late for work if he wears anything other than his normal uniform. He has to change at work.”

Well, maybe I couldn’t keep my blabbering mouth under control, but I could make people laugh. The entire audience had a field day with my runaway commentary, but beyond blushing over my nervous tendencies, I resisted the urge to dash for the door. If I bolted, Quinn would catch me, drag me back, and laugh about it for the rest of eternity.

It amazed me how much could change in such a short period of time. Six months ago, I’d been bitter, alone, tired, and hungry more often than not. I no longer worried about what I’d eat; if I skipped a meal, Quinn chased me down and hovered until I did what he wanted, which involved eating whatever offering he had brought for me.

Greasy fries and burgers showed up almost as often as healthier fare. He even tolerated me trying to shove fries down his throat, as he deserved to enjoy greasy goodness, too.

I had issues.

I had a lot fewer issues than six months ago.

I deserved a gold star and an entire bucket of napalm for how much progress I’d made.

Quinn chuckled, which captured my attention, and he stole a gentle kiss. “Don’t worry. I’m going to have as much trouble as you when I get you into a dress uniform.”

I loved my gorgon-incubus doohickey. “Serves you right, you freak.” Aw, damn it. There I went, calling my husband a freak on our second wedding day. “I’m blaming the absurd number of cops in this building for my inability to behave like a normal adult.”

The cops snickered, which helped mitigate most of my urge to run away and hide from my ability to thoroughly embarrass myself. Then again, if I did run away and hide, Quinn would cheat and use his body to lure me to our room. Running so he’d chase me tempted me, but I stood my ground for a rare change.

Sometime within a few hours, he would lure me to our room, and I would be rewarded for handling our second wedding with a little more grace than our first. Mostly. Maybe with less grace but properly dressed. I could work with properly dressed for our second wedding.
