Happy Holiday Reading!

There is nothing I enjoy more over the holidays than curling up with a warm blanket and a hot new read. I may be on a social media hiatus but it’s mostly so I can make some kind of progress with my massive TBR. The books listed below are my December/Holiday reads so far. Not all of them were my faves but most are worth the read. Maybe a few will end up in your TBR.

What I’ve Read (in no particular order)

  • Her Mistletoe Minotaur by Erin St. Charles
    • Really wanted to love this but had a hard time with the characters motivations. See my full review on Serpentine Reads
  • Jinn, Nitara, and Ardyn and Zaria by Jessica Cage
    • The first three books in the Djinn rebellion series. More Urban Fantasy than Romance but still a really great read that I will continue to read into the new year.
  • The Fit Trilogy and Xeni by Rebekah Weatherspoon
    • Fit Trilogy- Lovely introduction into the world of BDSM and diverse erotic romance
    • Xeni- Fun marriage of convenience that brought all the feels and family drama
  • Huddle With Me Tonight by Farrah Rochon
    • Nothing like the spirit of competition and delicious food to get the romantic juices flowing.
  • A Prince on Paper by Alyssa Cole
    • Health, Wealth and dodging paparazzi. All the wonderful things I have come to expect from Alyssa Cole.
  • Seeded by Loki Renard
    • A scif-fi menage that was touch a go as far as plot but the alien sex was definitely hot
  • Grumpy Jake by Melissa Blue
    • Cute kid, hot dad, super sweet romance that gave me a giggle or two
  • The Chai Factor by Farah Heron
    • This canadian rom com will give you all the feels and maybe a garden gnome fetish

I took a brief holiday from my social media over the weekend. It was mostly due to some technical glitches that prompted me to get some much needed maintenance done on my laptop. Now that I’m back up and running I can resume my normal activity. In my down time I spent plenty of time with family while also taking the opportunity to catch up on my increasingly large ‘To Read’ list. It is so easy for me to get caught up in writer mode and I often forget that the joy I get in writing can also come from reading. While my Fiction list is substantially longer than my non-fiction selections, I decided to tackle some personal growth this weekend. Did you get any reading/writing done this weekend? What books are on your ‘To Read” List?

Here’s What I Read and Where to Buy
