The time it was a mutiny {3}

Posted January 31, 2019 by Stacee in Reviews | 6 Comments

Hi guys! Welcome to another edition of the mutiny.

What’s the mutiny you ask? Well, I have always said that I wasn’t going to become a review blog and yet, I’ve had this itch in the back of my head… so here we are. I’m waging a mutiny against myself and I’m going to do some mini reviews + feature upcoming reads I’m excited about.

For this specific edition, I’m going to share some my favorite reads from January, so settle in!

Velvet by Temple West — 5 ★ — I was in a bit of a slump and decided to do a reread of this one.  I then also cheated and used it for a Reading Rewind. I don’t have words for how much I love this series.  I’m always here for vampires, but Temple’s version is filled with snark and banter and some of the best dialogue.  I’ll just be crying in the corner while I wait for book 3.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang — 5 ★ — In my best of 2018 edition of the mutiny, I talked about how I was so so excited for The Bride Test and thanks to the lovelies at Berkley, I was sent a copy.  You guys…it’s just as good as I was hoping it would be.  Helen has a way of making me think her characters are my friends.  Khai and Esme are charming and delightful and good.  I loved every page of it.  Oh, and if you get an early copy, be sure to read the author’s note.

Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis — 5 ★ — Jill Shalvis is an auto-buy for me.  I love all of her books {I’ve read most of them}, but the Heartbreaker Bay series is definitely been my favorite.  Sadie and Caleb are so much fun and let’s not forget the scene stealer in rescue dog, Lollipop.  They have excellent communication and chemistry off the charts.  I could easily read another book with just them and I’m eager to see if they pop up in the next book.

A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean — 5 ★ — So this was a book I wasn’t really aware of, but that’s only because I haven’t taken a dive into Sarah’s catalog…and that’s something that’s absolutely going to happen.  Scot went on sale for a day and Sarah sent out a newsletter sharing the news and that’s all I needed.  I ended up devouring it because the banter and chemistry was just fantastic.  I loved Lily and Alec and the commentary about how women do the same things men do, but women’s actions become a scandal.  I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the series because I loved all of the characters and I’m hoping they have appearances.

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon — I don’t even need to know what or who Sandhya is writing about.  I will be here for it. However, I have read the synopsis for this one and I’m so so so excited to read it. Also, I’m in love with all of Sandhya’s covers.

Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett — See the above, just switch Jenn’s name.

Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young — I’ve been a fan of Suzanne’s for a while.  She’s amazing and so are her words.  I can’t even wait to see what is going to happen in this story.  And hello, rad cover.

What about you? Have you read any of these books or do you want to?

  1. I’m so glad to hear The Bride Test was so good! It’s one of my most anticipated releases of 2019 (probably top 3) and I have such nerves because I loved The Kiss Quotient so much, and want this to be equally as amazing! I’m also SO excited for Serious Moonlight! Can’t wait to hear what you think about it!

    Your 3 YA books are definitely on my TBR, which as you can guess, is out of control. But, I never can say that I don’t have anything to read!
