Favourite Reads from 2017.

I had some great reads this year and my love for YA continues. I also picked up a few fantastic contemporary reads, sci fi and some fantasy.

If I had one wish for books, I would love to see some more urban fantasy out there. It is one of my favourite genre to read and other than Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews, I haven’t really come across anything this year that made me super excited.

I also found reading and blogging was tough from around October onwards, as this is a busy time of year for me. I think learning to be ok saying no to stuff has been a learning curve. Because saying no to books seems a bit mad!

It has been so incredibly nice to just sit around and read these past few weeks over the holidays. I have had some fab reads in December, added a bunch of 2018 releases to my Goodreads tbr and finished a few books that have been languishing on my shelves. Bliss.

Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve and I hope 2018 is a fabulous year for you!

Relationship Status by K.A. Mitchell.

This is the 3rd book in the Ethan and Wyatt  series, about a young couple who meet at University. I really like these new adult books and was eager to read this final volume. The first two dealt with their initial meeting and both of the characters learning to trust and love. This final books is more about adulting and learning to live together.

As always, K.A. Mitchell, writes sweet, angsty and hot relationships that are realistic and enjoyable. This latest installment was great final chapter in their romance and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did find myself a little on edge initially as I kept thinking something truly horrendous was going to happen, but it didn’t eventuate and I felt the 2nd half of the book was stronger as a result. Lots of learning, compromise and growing up.

A great read and a lovely final book.

Single Malt by Layla Reyne

This was another great action drama from Carina Press. I’ve been enjoying several of their novels over the past few months.

I think the author has created a great set up for future novels and the romance was believable and there was good tension throughout the story between the protagonists. The case work and FBI plot was very like watching a TV drama and I did find it super entertaining. I found parts of this novel a little more angsty that I’d normally be keen on, but it was not overwhelming. I am really looking forward to reading the second book now and cannot wait to see what happens next for Aidan and Jamie. A great rainy day read and an author to watch.

4 stars.
