If it's not *Romance* I'm not buying. Still currently heartbroken that the Simon and Baz adventures have concluded...

Him - Mit ihm allein | Elle Kennedy, Sarina Bowen
post image
Pickpick

Rounding out my bingo with Him. This book has been on my TBR since before I ever even picked up a MM book! I've seen this book talked about the most (and maybe that's why I put it off for so long). I'm glad I FINALLY grabbed this book, it was a friends-to-lovers breath of fresh air! Wouldn't quite give it 5 stars because there was a bit of a hiccup IMO. But solid 4⭐. Y'all know I'm a sucker for well written characters and I LOVED me some Wes! ⬇

chasjjlee I have already started the 2nd book, Us, and I'm looking forward to getting to read more of Wes & Jamie's story.

I had fun with my bingo for this month (not as much fun as last month, thank you to the Gallagher/Milkovich clan 😅).

Not sure if I'm doing bingo for December or not, haven't decided. What do you think @charityblee?

I liked the idea of this book...but not the result. It's written in third person and if it's not done damn near perfectly *cough* The Charm Offensive/Queer Principles/RW&RB *cough* then it can be hard to connect with the characters. And let me tell you...I didn't connect.
Also the way things were said in this book confused me a little bit and I just found it hard to follow. I really wanted to like this one but it just didn't hold my attention 😕.

I love the Tails x Horns world. This is book 2 (but can be read as a standalone). I liked the first book, You to Me, a little bit more than this one but still really enjoyed Just not You.
There's a little bit if mystery going on in the background and these characters phenomenal 👌.
4⭐'s

Ho Ho Ho-ly sh**! This book was a little slice of winter wonderland heaven. Well a messed up werewolf version of a winter wonderland 🤷‍♀️. With zombies. I feel like I'm not selling this 😂.
Short read. Multiple POV. And just everything I needed from these characters! It was kind of like an extended epilogue but Christmas themed-ish. Idk, I freaking loved it!

It's the 3rd book in the mismatched mates series, should definitely read them in order.

This was my first ever audio book 🎧!

Loved listening to this, I very much enjoyed Matthew & Arik's story and adventure together. I did prefer the 1st book a tiny bit but this one still deserves 4⭐'s.

It took me 15 forevers to finish this book because "Shameless" **exists** and I just discovered it ?‍♀️. So I've been shamelessly binging and this poor precious book took the backseat.

Well, the Gallagher's did not take away from how lovely this book was. It was slow to start and lost me here and there but midway through we get a strong and beautiful story developing. Great historical romance.

My bingo really took a hit due to Shameless ?.

I am really no good at reviews but.....

This book was so good. SO GOOD. I don't normally like rom-com books so I fully expected to not like this and DNF it. The total opposite happened. I could not put this book down. The foundation of this story...just wow. I'm absolutely here for it.

See, I've told you how much I loved it without actually telling you anything about it.
Not good at reviews 😅. Just read it. Worth it.

It's hard to review this book because my thoughts are a little scattered on it.
📕I love these characters. Troy was shy on the exterior but strong when it counted. And Jackson couldn't help but to be loving and caring despite his role as “the popular football player“.
📕There were loads of things that didn't flow or make any sense in this story & there were some major cringe moments...but I think I liked the characters enough to overlook that.
⭐⭐⭐

I have had a blast with this month's reading, excited to continue on in November.

Also, honorable mention...

More Happy Than Not - Such a touching story!
Jackdaw - Super fun forbidden romance.
Devilry - Spicy age gap romance (not as🌶 as Rule Breaker 😉).

I am thinking that Rule Breaker has rounded out my October bingo. Not sure that I can squeeze one more in before November.

I personally can't believe that I've read 13 books this month and managed to pull out 2 bingos, but I'm so happy that I did!

I enjoyed this little challenge (even if I didn't exactly know all the rules) and I had fun sharing a few of these reads with my book BFF @charityblee !

Monthly recap coming soon 💛!

I'm the Vampire, That's Why | Michele Bardsley

I finished *I'm the Vampire That's Why* yesterday and made my first bingo for my October Book Bingo!

This book wasn't exactly my cup of tea but it wasn't terrible! I liked the fun sassy twist that she put on the vampire story I just thought maybe it was lacking a little...... something 🤔.

I'm trying to squeeze one more bingo out of October. We will see 👀.

Okay so.....The first half of this book is EVERYTHING. We are picking up where Ari and Dante left off and we get to see some beautiful moments between the two of them. And that is why I was so excited about this book, to see their relationship unfurl....and then that's not really what this book ended up being about. But it was still beautifully written I just wanted to see more Ari & Dante, I mean who wouldn't 😁?

I really liked that this was a MM retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It was pretty well written and I enjoyed the characters. It became a little repetitive and the author was building up the ending.... which fell a little flat 🤷‍♀️.
