BOOK OF THE MONTH (Oct ’17): Death Angel by Linda Howard

I have read hordes of Linda Howard novels back to back that at some point, the stories blended together on my mind but there are some stories that stood in stark contrast. Death Angel is one. Out of all Howard’s work, Death Angel is the most unique. It’s darkly seductive, gritty and a touch scandalous, […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Sep ’17): Also Known As by Robin Benway

A great book to start the new school year with! It’s full of wonderful friendships and exciting adventures ala Nancy Drew. It’s a fun take on spies theme and stars a kickass heroine. Also Known As by Robin Benway Genre: Young Adult SYNOPSIS: Which is more dangerous: being an international spy… or surviving high school? […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (AUG ’17): Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas

Before the summer is over, indulge in this toe-curling, butterfly-inducing and classically romantic tale of a country lady and a notorious gambler falling in love in the sweetest way. Kleypas once again shows us how she has mastered the art of leisurely story-telling that could captivate her readers from the first page to the last. […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Jul ’17): The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

I’m not really a fan of YA which is obvious in the way I rarely give the genre 4-stars because I can’t connect with the characters and I feel like most have silly plots and characterizations but The Start of Me and You is a bit different. The characters have flaws that are realistic. For […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Jun ’17): Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn

Historical Romance novels are notorious for having bodice-ripper themes–that innocent heroine and rake of a hero combination–but lo and behold, Julia Quinn, who came and changed the game by having her stories innocently romantic but never lacking the fire. Just Like Heaven is one of my first reads from her and I immediately noticed how […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (May ’17): Lucas by Jay McLean

While it’s not my favorite book from the author, Lucas is close to my heart. I find young love pure and touching and this book in my opinion manifested that. Some may feel this is too angst ridden and I have a few reservations about it too, hence the four stars, but I still think […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Apr ’17): Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

I feel like this is the perfect read for Spring–it’s light, flirty and sweet–much like the playful but warm weather Spring is all about. Hope you have fun as much as I had reading this sixth installment from Shalvis’ popular Lucky Harbor series! Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis Genre: Contemporary Romance “Because if […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Mar ’17): Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

I like my books with strong female leads and Kiss of Snow delivered it perfectly. Sienna is one of the strongest female heroines I’ve read about and obviously, one of my favorites. This recommendation is a salute to all amazing women out there. Just as what Lifetime’s Women’s Month station ID says, welcome to Fempire! […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Feb ’17): More Than Forever by Jay McLean

I have read a lot of romance novels that I deemed “epic” and I have also featured them on the blog. However, there is one I haven’t yet and I can’t really recall why I haven’t gushed all over this one. This novel left a deep impact on me. I did a re-read recently, something […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (JAN ’17): Golden by Jessi Kirby

Happy New Year everyone! I feel this book is the most appropriate read to begin our years with because it is about letting go of the past, finding new beginnings and going for what you really want in life. I want to set the mood for rest of my year and I want as inspiring […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Dec ’16): Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

I am only halfway through this book but I already love it. And since it’s set during the holiday season, I thought this would be the perfect book to feature for December. A cynic and a hopeless romantic fall in love in this classic tale of romance, a tried and tested formula that any reader […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Nov ’16): Breaking Point by Pamela Clare

For the month of November, I’m featuring another book from my favorite genre, Romantic Suspense. Breaking Point is my favorite installment from the I-Team series. It’s about the investigative team of journalists from the Denver Independent, a local newspaper. In the group’s quest for the truth and justice, they find themselves in a lot of […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (Oct ’16): Murder List by Julie Garwood

It’s that time of the year again when the creep inside all of us manifests itself. It’s Halloween! Last year, I featured a book much like this one. Suspenseful but romantic, perfect for this season.  Murder List by Julie Garwood is not really creepy nor spooky but why did I pick this one? It’s because […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (SEP ’16): My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I know, it’s super late to post this now but I kind of have to, as I promised I wouldn’t miss out on any months. Anyway, My Life Next Door is my first foray into the young adult genre and I loved it. It set the bar so high so it eventually became the book […]

BOOK OF THE MONTH (AUG ’16): Cry No More by Linda Howard

This book is one of my most memorable reads and also my favorite from Linda Howard. It’s simply a masterpiece. More than just being a romantic novel, it dealt with a lot of familial issues especially that of a mother’s unconditional and undying love to her child. I was touched in so many ways that […]
