Thanks for tagging me @KateReadsYA 🙂!

💙 Tagged! (It's a Rapunzel re-telling!)
💙 E-book (loving the spring challenge on Kindle)
💙 5⭐'s!! It. Is. So. GOOD. only 20% left and I know it's worth all the stars.
💙 Not as I read just in case it turns out to be a book I don't want to keep. But if I loved it I'll go back through and highlight.

It was okay. I don't really know how to rate these because it's more than just a story. But I'm learning that I'm not really a huge graphic novel fan....just a GIANT heartstopper fan 😂.

Forever loving the Mismatched Mates series by Eliot Grayson.

This month's challenge is Graphic Novels!

I am new to graphic novels. I've only read Heartstopper, which honestly set the bar high IMO (and don't get me started on the TV series, that's my new comfort series!!).

I have a few that I've bought this year and saved them to read in May. I'm starting with the tagged book, can't wait!

Oh, and feel free to use this template if y'all want.

Wolfsong is basically second to none 🐺. And Eliot Grayson's writing was fabulous as always 👍.

No question Wolfsong was my FAVORITE book this month. But.....I can't choose between wolfsong & prince's gambit. They're both so good! In COMPLETELY different ways. 😬

chasjjlee @Nessavamusic omg it's soooo good, right?!? I loved this series so much! 3w

So, I tried to read only from my bookshelf this month.
📚
These ⬆️ are all the physical books I read in March (and only 3 ebooks). I think I did pretty well sticking to it.
📚
Tagged was my 2nd fav book this month, I REALLY enjoyed it and immediately watched the movie afterwards and LOVED that too!
📚
I enjoyed every one of these books except for All Your Perfects. That book was...well just not enjoyable.

I made a few changes to the reading bracket so you can put the book cover in each space instead of typing out the title.

You can use whichever you like best but I thought I'd share it blank too in case y'all wanted to follow along with this one.

Starting this one today 💛. @Nutmegnc I will let you know what I think 🤔.

My goal for March (and April and May 😅) is to stop downloading new books on my Kindle and read the 2 shelves of books that I have. Yeah... we'll see how that goes... Anyway, starting with this one 👍. I had pre-ordered If This Gets Out so technically that counts, right?

inthegreensandblues I also tend to go on Kindle sprees and then buying bans to make up for it 😂 3mo
chasjjlee @inthegreensandblues yesss, there are just soooo many books at your fingertips on Kindle. Sometimes I forget I even have a physical bookshelf 😅. 3mo

Nutmegnc @chasjjlee real disappointed. Maybe kids will like it? It‘s not horrible but pretty bland and has some thin characters. Did Disney actually read this manuscript? Or they were desperate to compete against the extraordinaries but in the least shocking way possible? 3mo

Okay...I HAVE to tell y'all about these books!

So the series is called Vino & Veritas and it is 18 standalone books and they are each by a different Author. This is the first one I've read (but I will be reading more), I found it because I was looking for an Eliot Grayson book.

They all follow different characters with different plots but it's all centered around this half bookstore half wine bar (I mean!!!) in Vermont. ⬇

chasjjlee This is such a cool concept and this particular book was so so so good! I mean I love Eliot Grayson's writing, but what a fun way to test out the waters and see how these other authors write. AND they are all on Kindle Unlimited. AND 16 of the 18 are MM and the other 2 are FF. Need I say more...
(The other 2 Authors I recognized were Annabeth Albert and Marley Valentine)

CarolynM I've read a few of these, but not this one yet. It's a good series. I'm a fan of Jay Hogan so I'm looking forward to getting around to 3mo
chasjjlee @CarolynM I haven't read anything by Jay Hogan before, but I will definitely be reading more of these. Probably not in order since they're standalones. I loved this one, Eliot Grayson is great! 3mo

This is honestly the furthest I've read from romance...ever. Even 'You' by Caroline Kepnes had more romance in it and we know how that ended... But it wasn't a bad series, I did enjoy it. I was too interested in what was happening with everyone to DNF it. It's a little darker then I normally read too. I'm telling you, that fanart had me eff'd up for what to expect in these books 😂. I'm glad I read it though, whatever lol.

@Nutmegnc help a girl out! Have you read any of these and thought they were AMAZING? Idk which one to read next but I want to be blown away and absolutely SWOONING. Love, spice, passion, alphas, the whole 9! What you think??

Nessavamusic I loved House in the Cerulean Sea!! (edited) 3mo
chasjjlee @Nessavamusic I've heard so many good things about it! I have those 3 TJ Klune books up there but I haven't read anything by him yet and everyone says he's the best! Is it romance forward? I need a good romance to knock my socks off right now 😂. 3mo
Nessavamusic @chasjjlee it‘s a slow burn, very sweet - no sexy times - romance. But it‘s still is a total warm and fuzzy book 3mo

chasjjlee @Nessavamusic good to know! I love a mushy romance too 😍. Tal Bauer is really good at writing those type of love stories. 3mo
BkClubCare I‘ve only read 2 and of those, I rec the Klune for the warm fuzzies, for sure. 😊 3mo
chasjjlee @BkClubCare awesome ☺️ I'm wanting to start one of these tonight. Which other one did you read? 3mo
BkClubCare @chasjjlee - I was afraid you‘d ask me that. I loved Clarke‘s Piranesi but was super-annoyed with Jonathan Strange & MrNorrell. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
chasjjlee @BkClubCare ah, gotcha. That book was recommended to me because someone said it was similar to Carry On. I've been a bit intimidated by the size of it that's why I haven't started it yet. 3mo
Nutmegnc Oooh! Recs!! If you haven‘t already the swoon factor is def The House in the Cerulean Sea! 3mo
Nutmegnc Not much spice in House though. I loved What if it‘s us and Here‘s to us. Small spice lots of swoon. 3mo
Nutmegnc Extraordinaries and flash fire are entertaining with some swoon. More extraordinaries than flash fire. 3mo
Nutmegnc They both die at the end was hard to read. 3mo
Nutmegnc I‘m currently reading the temperature of me and you but not that far in so no idea yet…I‘m dying to read Camp, the Gravity of us. (Big swoon I hope) and Before We disappear. (edited) 3mo
chasjjlee @Nutmegnc perfect! I want to start what if it's us ASAP then ☺️. Thank you ♥️. I know we have similar opinions so I'm sure I will love it too! 3mo
Nutmegnc Simon is very swoon but slow burn. Pretty fast read. Love the others in that world too. Didn‘t like Jonathan strange or piranesi so maybe it‘s just her style I‘m not a fan of. I can see why others would like it, just not for me. 3mo
chasjjlee @Nutmegnc I've wanted to pick up before we disappear after every book I've finished but I still haven't, idk why 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️. 3mo
Nutmegnc Honestly I‘ve read The House on the Cerulean Sea more times than I can count. The audio is amazing as well. I‘ve done both. Many times. What if it‘s us has all the feels!! Also an amazing audio. You will love love love!! Ans sorry for five hundred messages 🤣. I have some thoughts… (edited) 3mo
chasjjlee @Nutmegnc 😂 no I love it I need all the thoughts 💭! Was Jonathan Strange similar to Carry On? 3mo
Nutmegnc I know nothing about Carry On, sorry 😞. 3mo
chasjjlee @Nutmegnc oh okay, I thought you had read that one. Well I'll get to Johnathan Strange eventually lol. 3mo
