"I don't believe that you're somehow COMPLETED by romantic love. You aren't born half a person, doomed to drift through life unfulfilled until you find someone who can validate you. You're a whole person with a whole life, that you might choose to share with another person. Or you might not. Your body and mind is your own. Your happiness is your responsibility and your right."

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!❤

Today's field trip was to the #BookBingeBazaar for @dwnrnsfst's book signing for the revised and expanded edition of the poetry book The Last Time I'll Write About You, published internationally by Andrews McMeel. There were tons of books on sale at the book bazaar but I only bought Dawn's book.

This book has gotten a lot of buzz on romance Twitter, featuring a couple on a reality TV dance competition. I was hoping I'd enjoy it. Unfortunately, there was way too much dramarama for me. The pace was so slow that I found myself skimming some parts. I really wanted to enjoy this but sadly, I have to say that this wasn't my cup of tea.

Smooth writing that's easy to get into, featuring a professional MMA fighter as a hero and a feminist heroine who works in a women's crisis center. They hook up in Vegas but part ways soon after, only to see each other again in Chicago four years later. There were scenes that sparkled with wit and humor, and the sexytimes were smoking hot.

An Enchantment of Ravens | Margaret Rogerson

Bailedbailed

This is one YA fantasy that didn't work for me. I read until past the halfway mark and was so bored that I just skimmed until the end just to see if it would get better (spoiler alert: it doesn't). It didn't feel like the character had enough substance so I wasn't invested in them at all. The worldbuilding was also flawed, I mean if fair folk are not supposed to feel any kind of emotion, how could one of them fall in love? I didn't get it.

MarriedtoMrT Yup! Agree with everything you said. 2y
Chachic @MarriedtoMrT Sad that this didn't work out but it really lacked substance. It reads like a raw manuscript, almost. 2y

Second book in the Arcadia Bell urban fantasy series. I liked the character development but I didn't enjoy this as much as the first one because it's a murder mystery and I found bits of it creepy, more horror than urban fantasy. I admit that I'm a big scaredy-cat but I really stay away from horror as a genre. Fuller review here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BeYDOiulzNe/

I enjoyed reading this first installment in the Arcadia Bell urban fantasy series. It came highly recommended by Lucy Parker, and I'm glad I liked it well enough to continue with the series. It has an age gap, slow burn romance.👌 I don't want to stress myself out cutting my review short to fit the character limit so linking to my original bookstagram instead: https://www.instagram.com/p/BeV0_GsF-qe/

Chachic @melissanorr Same! I keep trying to find urban fantasy to love as much as I love Ilona Andrews' books. 2y

melissanorr Yes! Every urban fantasy I see says "if you love Kate Daniels" or "the next Kate Daniels" but so few of them even come close to being as good. 2y
Chachic @melissanorr For me so far, NONE of them have been close to being as good.😂 Which other series have you enjoyed reading? I usually try the first 1-2 then give up. 2y
melissanorr I like both of Patricia Briggs' series but they really aren't like Kate Daniels at all. I enjoyed several of the Elemental Assassin books by Jennifer Estep but have fallen behind in that series because my library didn't have some of them. 2y
melissanorr A friend recommended the Dark Ink Chronicles by Jasper and the Skinwalker series (I think that's the name) but I haven't had a chance to try either yet. 2y
Chachic @melissanorr Ah I tried both of Patricia Briggs' series but didn't think they were a good fit for me. Will take note of the others when I have the chance to try a new series! 2y
MarriedtoMrT @Chachic I was trying to remember if or how much of this book I read before responding and was having trouble, hence the delay! 😂 I know I borrowed it a couple times and maybe started it but never finished. I‘m interested to see what you think! I might need to revisit because I do love Alex and I really enjoy urban fantasy. 2y
Chachic @MarriedtoMrT Oh you tried reading it! Well the Kindle edition is just 1.99usd if you do decide to give it a try.😂 Will let you know how it goes. 2y

Slightly Dangerous | Mary Balogh
post image
Pickpick

I'm not a huge fan of Regency romances, I enjoy them while I'm reading them but they all tend to blur together in my mind afterwards. I normally don't read one unless it comes highly recommended, which was the case with this book. Lucy Parker was very enthusiastic in recommending this Pride & Prejudice retelling, I have to thank her for it because I stayed up until early morning to read this in one go.

(Continued in comments)

Chachic I was hooked right from the time Christine meets Wulfric! Actually I was laughing so hard. Christine is a smart heroine who is just so vibrant and full of life, a very pleasant character to read about. And she takes the dark and broody Duke of Bewcastle completely by surprise. I really enjoyed how Mary Balogh took elements of Pride and Prejudice but made the story completely her own. Had so much fun reading this book. #romantsy 2y
CoffeeK8 This might still be my favorite one of hers! I 💖 regency but I do agree they blur together. 2y
Christy2318 I‘ve read some Balogh a long time ago. Not sure which ones. She‘s been on my TBR forever. I didn‘t know there was a P&P retelling. This is catnip for me so she gets a bump up the list. 2y
See All 7 Comments
Chachic @CoffeeK8 That's why I don't read it that often, they tend to blur together so I don't remember what happened in a specific book. Pretty sure I'll remember this one though. 2y
Chachic @Christy2318 This is my first of hers, and I only really picked it up because it's a Pride and Prejudice retelling and I enjoy reading those. Do you have any other P&P retelling favorites? 2y
Christy2318 So far I like the Pride & Prejudice & Zombies movie. The book version was terrible. Eligible was ok but not great. Same with P&P&Mistletoe. 2y

I have been curious about Sagala by ever since I saw that both @itstimeana and @minavesguerra loved it. Sagala is a Filipino historical fantasy in comics format, featuring siblings Riel and Constantino. I was surprised at how the author was able to include such strong worldbuilding and character development in the short length of these issues. I'm fully invested in these characters, can't wait to find out what happens to them next.

I caved and bought The Bird and the Nightingale's sequel for 13.99usd because I wanted to read it while the story is still fresh in my mind. I realized that I find it difficult to convince myself to buy pricey Kindle editions for fantasy titles because romance ebooks are a lot more affordable. The hardcover edition would have been about the same price, and I actually prefer ebooks nowadays. I just need to get used to this price range for fantasy.

Chachic @Smangela Such a great shirt, I love it too.❤📖 Yeah it's also harder for me to pay for ebooks if they're the same price as print but I really should learn to be okay with it since I prefer reading on my Kindle. 2y
Chachic @BethM Right? Glad you agree! 2y
Chachic @mhillis They're just a lot more convenient than print. Also less clutter! 2y

#bookanddinner! Squash soup was half of my dinner. Haven't read this Filipino romance in English yet, but I wanted to highlight it because it's currently a freebie on Amazon.

Pickpick

My first read in 2018, which came highly recommended by my friend Kristen (fantasycafe on Twitter). It started off real slow, I feel like the first half could have been edited better. But the pace picked up and I enjoyed it overall. An atmospheric read that has a fairytale feel, set in medieval Russia, steeped in folklore of that era. I've been itching to read a good fantasy book and this hit the spot.
