My 2017 Favorite Reads

Tuesday, January 2, 2018
Happy 2018!!!!

What were your favorite reads of 2017?

I need to bulk up my already too-huge to-be-read list with some awesome recommendations, please!!!

As for me, I must've been in the mood for some laughs last year (wow, so strange to call it last year!) because I gravitated toward fun books...and a lot of paranormal/fantasy/dystopian stuff. Huh, odd mix.



Anyway, I couldn't narrow it down to favorite books, so I went with most entertaining authors I read in 2017.

So some authors who were new-to-me in 2017 and whose stories I really enjoyed were:

-Cassandra Gannon (totally on the fun side)
 -Curse of the Gods Series (Also on the fun side)
-Sarah J. Maas (Court of Thorns and Roses Series)
-Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen series)
-Kayti McGee (Screwmates made me smile)
-Strong Hate by RD Berg and Ashley Christin
-Everly Lucas (Not released until next week)

And I feel bad for those authors whom I love and have read for years and years. I just expect so much from them now. So, honestly, the books I read by my go-to authors might've been just as great and entertaining to me as the newbies I listed above, but it just takes them so much more to surpass some of their earlier greatness. Meaning, I only have three of my non-new author reads that stood out to me in 2017.

 And those are:

-Kristin Hannah (with the book Nightingale...Holy wow!)
-Aly Martinez's Darkest Sunrise Duet and
-Sarah MacLean's The Rules of Scoundrel's series.

Okay! Your turn. Hit me with your 2017 favorites, especially if they’re fun or fantasy-themed!

MONSTER AMONG THE ROSES
A Beauty and the Beast Story
Contemporary Adult Romance

Ebook Available July 24th!
KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO | SMASHWORDS

Paperback: Available Now!
AMAZON | CREATESPACE.

IT'S ABOUT:

Shaw Hollander is desperate.
Broke, unemployed, and determined to help his ailing mother, he falls on the good graces of a wealthy benefactor who is willing to give Shaw a job at his mansion in order to pay off his mother’s debts. Suddenly finding himself surrounded by lavish riches, he has no idea what his duties truly entail until he’s sent to the rose garden and meets the tragically mutilated Isobel.

This Beauty and the Beast story holds true to the core of the fable while shaking off the element of fantasy and dragging it into present-day reality. Shaw and Isobel are ready to let you climb into their four-wheel-drive pickup and take a ride with them into their version of happily ever after, but only if you first dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses.
