Hi everyone! November was a great reading month for me, I read a total of 20 books, mainly romance novels that distracted me and made me feel better during a month that was emotionlly draining for me. I even found some new favorite romances and I’m excited to talk to you about them!
Beard with Me by Penny Reid (4,2 stars): This is a prequel to the Winston Brothers Series and I didn’t think it was necessary, so I almost skipped it, especially since it was supposed to be sad, but oh boy, that would have been a huge mistake since this ended up being my favorite book in the series. This is not romance since it doesn’t have a happily ever after, but it was a beautiful and heartbreaking hate to love story.
Beard Necessities by Penny Reid (3,8 stars): The final book in a series that means a lot to me. Billy and Claire’s story is such a bittersweet one and I loved it.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams (4 stars): Unique and quirky premise, a second chance romance that gave me all the feels, a hero with a stutter (which I have never seen in a romance book before) and so many other things I loved. I can’t wait for the companion book in this series.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert (4 stars): This book was cute and funny but it also included important discussions about chronic pain and abusive relationships and it was just a fantastic book.
Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely (3,7 stars): This one was so cute! A widowed single dad and his frenemy fall in love and it’s an emotional and beautiful story.
Satisfaction Guaranteed by Lauren Blakely (3,6 stars): great couple, but the conflict in this book was kind of dumb.
Instant Gratification by Lauren Blakely (3,6 stars): I loved the couple in this one, there was a lot of tension and chemistry. It has the best friend’s sister trope.
Overnight Service by Lauren Blakely (3,7 stars): Second chance romance, with love to hate to love. This book has an amazing main couple, their chemestry is off the charts!
Special Delivery by Lauren Blakely (2,8 stars): Honestly don’t remember much about this book and that probably says a lot about why I gave it such a low rating.
Someone Like You by Lauren Layne (3,8 stars): I love the relationship between the main characters, it was sweet but steamy, and I liked that this book includes conversations about important topics like domestic violence, death of a love one and grief.
I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne (3,6 stars): I really enjoyed the relationship in this book, there was tension and chemistry, but the ending was so rushed that it afected my overall enjoyment of the book.
I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne (3.8 stars): best friends to lovers is my favorite trop and this one was so well done! The whole premise of a guy teaching his female best friend the art of seduction was very entertaining even if it was not very unique.
Ready to Run by Lauren Layne (3,5 stars): This book took place in a short amount of time and I felt like there weren’t enough scenes of the couple to justify the strong feelings between them. There were pretty good scenes between them tho, even if there were few of them.
Crush, Interrupted by Zaida Polanco (3 stars?): This is more like 2,8 stars. I wanted to love this book because it’s written by a Latinx author, but the first 70% was really bad, the writing wasn’t the best and the romance made no sense. Even if it got a bit better at the end, it wasn’t that much better.
Plan B by Jana Aston (3,7 stars): I really liked the main couple and their relationship, even if the conflict in the story made no sense to me.
Headstrong Like Us by Krista and Becca Ritchie (3,5 stars): nothing really happens in this book, but I liked getting to see all the characters in the series together, even if it was just for short scenes.
Tacker by Sawyer Bennett (3,6 stars): I had such a high expectations for this book that I was bound to be disappointed. I enjoyed this book, it’s just that those books with the really, really, really tragic pasts for both of the main characters never works for me. Also, I like the couple but I didn’t love it.
Sal and Gabi Break the Universe by Carlos Hernandez (4,3 stars): This is a hilarious but at the same time heartbreaking middle grade novel full of latinx characters and I LOVED it!
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Agatha Christie (3,5 stars): This was entertaining, as it’s always the case with Christie’s books, but there was a hole in the resolution of the mystery that could have been so easily fixed, but it wasn’t and that annoyed me
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black (4,5 stars): This is officially one of my favorite YA series of all times, I loved the complex and captivating characters, the politics and scheming, and the ship that owns my heart: Cardan and Jude.
