The Bride by Julie Garwood
The Bride - Julie Garwood

I'm not surprised at all that this book has been among 100 best romance books for years. 
It's a very humorous story about a Scottish laird who is forced to marry with an Englishwoman. Alec and Jamie were both wonderful characters. Sure, Jamie was almost too perfect, but Julie Garwood used her few flaws to make me laugh all the time. I loved her banter with Alec and the way her husband tried to make her angry, when he saw her sad or worried, was hilarious.
The story also had a little bit of suspense and danger. But actually it's an amazing "feel good" book and it just made me happy.

Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh
Allegiance of Honor (Psy/Changelings) - Nalini Singh

Very well written and although it was about all the previous couples, the book had a good storyline - our heroes tried to locate a kidnapped lady shifter and had to protect the first psy-changeling child. At the same time they expected another first - pupcubs were ready to be born. 
It was great to visit the characters and read about their lives. I was a bit disappointed that Lara and Walker had such a small part in it but I'll survive. Nalini Singh is definitely one of my favourite authors. She knows how to write an exciting emotional story.

End of Days by Susan Ee
End of Days - Susan Ee

I bought the first book years ago but now I'm really glad I waited until the last book was published before I started reading this series. 

After I picked up the trilogy I couldn't put it down until I'd finished the last book. It captivated me so much, I had dreams about Penryn and Paige. I loved Penryn's strength and what was done to Paige broke my heart. Their connection and the storyline reminded me The 5th Wave but it didn't bother me a bit. The angels were scary and the bond between Penryn and Raffe was amazing. It was born out of necessity and grew into mutual respect and friendship. The world was spooky and the story had some really heart wrenching moments also some hilarious ones like Raffe and Penryn bickering about Pookie Bear.
My only complaint is that I want more. I need to know what will happen to the characters next. The author tied up most of the loose ends but I still have questions.

A Conjuring of Light
A Conjuring of Light - V.E. Schwab

by V.E. Schwab

 

Third in the series. I had a time gap between reading the second book of this series and this one, so jumping right into action that effectively continues from the second book took me a little while to settle into.

 

It all started coming back soon. Book two left us on a cliffhanger with Kell in peril! I was so displeased about the cliffhanger that I didn't even bother to review it. But a few chapters into this one and I was desperate to see him escape.

 

I found this one stressful. Too many tempers, too much hopelessness in the situation that arises. Many times I wanted to just stop so I wouldn't have to go back into this imaginary world anymore, so unlike the first book that made it rather fun. It also meanders a lot and it took me quite a long time to read it because it didn't always hold my attention and seemed overly long.

 

But with the first two books of the series demanding continuity, I persevered. I'm glad I did. The last third of the book had me doing late nights. I was really gripped! All I'll say about the end is that it all gets tied up neatly, though I do wonder who will inherit the kingdom in the next generation.
