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!

Fence review and Jord code!

FENCE is out. And it was brilliant. I think I scared the guy in the comic book shop by ordering all the variant covers and also the collected volume. He kept saying, ‘Are you sure?’ And looking very bewildered. Fan. Girl. For a first comic it did what this author does so well, building tension and anticipation. I also think she writes a really layered story, including world building. Not just the relationship stuff. Buy it! It is a 5 star start to the series for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📚

Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh

I loved this so much! Venom is one of my favourite characters and it was so good to finally read his book. He’s such a good fit for Holly, and there chemistry was off the charts. A bit of a slow burn and I’m a complete fan of the love\hate vibe.

While the cascade was there in the background, the focus was more on tying up some loose ends for Holly and her heroine journey. Liked it. Brilliant read, this series is a total winner. AND OMG more hints about Aodhan and Illium. I need their book yesterday!!! 😁💕 Sigh. Check out the Guild Hunter series, it’s magic.

Book Candles. 

Loving my @flickthewick candles. They smell so delicious! I’m currently reading the latest #nalinisingh and it is so good! It is the beginning of a new series called #psychangelingtrinity Urban fantasy is one of my favourite genres, and it is so nice to delve back in after a few weeks of contemporary romance.

I have a few books to get through in the next few weeks, but I am wondering if I can sneak in a reread of #acowar I read it so quick, that it’d be good to go through a little slower. I love this series.

There is a lot of yelling at the tv in my house this evening, the last Lions Vs Abs game here in NZ. Feel like I should go watch… 😁 🏉
