Friday Reads!
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Heels, Heartache & Headlines (Hollywood High) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Rumors - A.C. Arthur
Revealed (The Rumors Series, Book 2) - A.C. Arthur

I will be finishing up the Hollywood High series and starting on a duology (haven't heard of a third book thus far) by A. C. Arthur that I've put off for way too long. I'm having such a good time reading and catching up with the girls in the Hollywood High series. These books are easy reads that really are a fun escape.

 

You'll realize that I'm not sticking to my March reading list. Some books really do take me forever to read and days were passing by without me picking up my kindle. I decided to re-adjust my tbr and read some backlogged books that would surely get me going again. I will eventually get to the books on my March TBR, but I will feel better with books read, under my belt, than none at all or only a couple at months end. I wish I could read multiple books at a time, but I can't.

 

I don't have plans for the weekend so, these four books seem doable.

 

Happy weekend reading everyone!

Hello friends it's been awhile since I've been on Booklikes. Every time I would try to make an update or post the website would run soooooo slow. I couldn't take waiting and waiting. However, those who are on Goodreads as well as BL I didn't feel out of touch. I missed you all who I've come to appreciate and value on BL. I want to be an active participant again and hope this site stays user friendly for those like me who are clueless when it pertains to websites and computers.

 

I set my reading goal this year at 50 books. I would like to get back up to the 100 books I used to read in 2011-2013. Last year I barely squeaked by at 30 books, I think. I'm going for it all in 2017 and am discontinuing activities that were time wasters. I'm also going to stop reading books that are not of my favorite genres, doing so slows me down.

 

My to be read books for February are very exciting. There are new releases by a few of my favorite authors, new books in series I've read and others that are about some of my favorite topics. Let's hope I stay focused next month. So far in January I've finished 5 books. 

 

Happy reading everyone!

"On The Corner of Heartache and Hopeful - Mic" by Lynda Bailey

My Thoughts...

This was quite a interesting erotica romantic story that I did find somewhat predictable however it was still a good read. Everything seemed to come to a head with Scott being back in Tatum, Nebraska due to the fact that his grandmother has died. In taking care of things Scott soon finds out that his grandmother had left Mic something after her death and in getting to the bottom of this he gets involved with Michaela [Mic]. This is where this story will take off where sparks will fly between these two. The two main characters had known each other in high school where we find from the read that Mic had always had feeling for Scott but they didn't really get together until after the death of his grandmother. What will happen as these two go out to a dinner? What question will Mic ask of Scott? Will Scott decide to leave Tatum and return to NY alone? Well, this is where I say you will have to pick up this delightful read to see if these two will get their HEA.

Douglas: Lord of Heartache - Grace Burrowes

It was a sweet and calm story. Douglas was so calm, supportive, passionate in a quiet way that the whole story was just super sweet and super romantic. His most passionate scene didn't come in the bedroom, but on the church steps when he rides to Gwen's rescue and holds a Duke at sword point. Loved it!  His demeanor throughout the whole book set the tone for it and it was refreshing to have a male lead that wasn't over dramatic, over the top masculine, but rather a staid and true hero that had a calming influence. The way he wins Gwen's trust was perfect. He went about earning it and proving that he is a true gentleman and he allows her to control their dealings. Their love story was beautiful and enjoyable.

Book Review of Hannah's Heartache - A Master of Whitehall Novelette by Rick H. Veal
Hannah's Heartache - A Master of Whitehall Novelette - Rick H. Veal

Hannah Richards has her life all planned out … she was born and raised in tiny little Waycross, Georgia … and she wants nothing more than to spread her wings and fly away. She wants to experience life and find out what the world holds in store for her. It looks to her like all her plans are about to come together … she graduates high school in two months … has a full scholarship to her favorite college … and she’s the captain of the cheerleading squad … which she has single-handedly guided through to the State wide finals in Savannah. But after arriving in Savannah, she wakes to find herself thrust headlong into a new world … and it’s anything but the world she expected.

 

Review 4*

 

This is a wonderful short story. I really enjoyed it!

 

Hannah Richards is a wonderful character. I liked her very much. A cheerleader at school, she finds herself thrown into a world she didn't know existed. With the help of Agalia (or Gale as she is now known), Hannah slowly comes to terms with her new life as an immortal.

 

Having previously read all of the Master of Whitehall novels, I was eager to read this novellette. As it is only a short story, it didn't take me long to read.

 

Hannah's story touched me deeply. The story is told through her eyes. Her story could have ended a lot differently if Gale had not found her. Nevertheless, I am glad that she did. I enjoyed getting to know her a little better as she pieced her shattered life back together. Changed by an unknown rogue, Hannah now faces the future with an immortal family that are as formidable apart as they are deadly together. It was nice meeting all of the characters from the previous books again too: James, Katelyn, Dale, Lexi, Charlotte Ann and Sarah. It was like meeting up with friends. My only complaint is that the story was too short! Be that as it may, this is a charming story and I wonder if there will be anymore books in this saga? I guess only time will tell.

 

Rick Veal has written an intriguing short story. His characters are lifelike and likable. His writing style is fast paced. The flow of the story is wonderful, this kept me turning the pages. He's now on my favourite authors' list. I would definitely read more of his work in the future.

 

There are no explicit scenes, so I recommend this book for younger readers aged 13 and up . - Lynn Worton
