I finally got around to making my #BookSpinBingo board. I still love writing things out, lists are one of my favorite things. I think the act of writing is calming.

My goal for March is to get that blacked out board. 🤞💜📖📚💜

This is one of the funniest rom-com I have read in a bit. A couple of scenes I laughed so hard I cried. It was also serious and felt like real life. Loved all characters especially Noely who was an imperfect, perfect character. 4.5 ⭐️

This book is the definition of slow burn. The first part is a series of letters, emails and IMs between Ruby and Aaron who is away on deployment with the Army. I enjoyed this slow ramp up and it was obvious to me when their relationship became more than just penpals. I was so excited for them to finally meet up. Great characters and the plot was so realistic. 4.5⭐️.

My favorite book in February was Welcome to the Dark Side by Giana Darling. I loved the story and the characters. The story did romantize MCs but I have to remember it is fiction.

dabbe What's your favorite between Jan. and Feb.? #inquiringmindsaredyingtoknow! 🤩😍😃 4d
TheSpineView @dabbe I liked them both and have been thinking on it. Maybe Tied, but reserve the right to make a change. I'll eventually have to choose one. 3d
dabbe @TheSpineView I think it's cool when they're so close of a choice. I haven't had that happen in a while. So ... I'll wait patiently for your decision. 🤩😍😘 3d

The best thing about this book was Fizzy. She is strong, intelligent, a bit over the top with a love for life most people never have. I loved how she took Conner by storm. Totally blindsided him. And they worked so well together. Enjoyed reading their story. 4.5⭐️ Book two of the DNAduo series but can be read as a stand alone.

Lessons in Corruption | Giana Darling

This is book 1 of The Fallen Men series. I read book 2 first, which I loved. Then book 3 which I didn't care for. Despite my feeling on #3, I decided to go on and read the first. I am glad I read them out of order because there are a few things you learn, especially in book 3 that helps you understand King, one of the main characters. He is a teenager and seemed like he was 30. But knowing more about his young childhood than this book divulges

TheSpineView ... it works. The story is great and I did love the characters. 4⭐️ BTW, book 2 is still my favorite in the series. #SeriesLove2024 @Andrew65 #LitsyLoveReads #LitsyLove @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 4d

This is book 2 of a new series I started. Each book is about a person who works in a tattoo shop in Dallas. This one is about Mia who Bull, the owner of the shop, took under his wing after her parents kicked her out of their house at 17. She falls for one of her clients who just happens to be an exfriend of Bull's. Lots of tension between the two men and lots of secrets. Great plot and very invested in seeing these characters get their HEA. 4.5⭐️

A cute enemies-to-lovers romance. Nothing earth shattering, but it was enjoyable. I only wished the drama had not gone on as long. However, I did like the characters a lot. 3.5⭐️

#WondrousWednesday @Eggs

👃 Rain in the spring, reminds me of going out to play after a spring shower and everything smells fresh.
👃 Coffee brewing, reminds me of the mornings getting up to go to school and my Mom in the kitchen making breakfast.
👃The smell of fresh laundry. It reminds me of taking laundry off the line when I was young.

This is the first book in a new series I came across. All the books are about the people who work at a tattoo shop in Dallas. This book is Jeff's story, a widower, whose wife died of cancer 3 years prior. He is still grieving but Emma, a client, is just what he needs to move on. It is a sad and emotional romance. I really liked both of the characters. 4.5⭐️ #SeriesLove2024 @Andrew65
