Top 100 Romance Books… How many have you read?

GoodReads recently compiled the top 100 romance books according to ratings and stats on their blog. I always love reading these little wrap ups, because not only can you see how many books you’ve read in a certain genre, but it also introduces you to new novels and authors.

Of the 100 novels, I’ve read 43, which is a pretty good effort.

Here are my favourite reads from the list.

Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan – Review4 stars
Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning – Review5 stars
Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren – Review5 stars

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire – Review4 stars

Author Spotlight: K.A Tucker

K.A Tucker has been around since 2012, so I can’t believe I never picked up a book of hers until 2016. But hey, better late then never! I have been devouring her novels lately and really enjoying them, so I thought I’d do a little wrap up post! My review ranged from 5 stars to 2 stars, but despite loving some books more than others, something about K.A Tucker’s writing just kept me reading and reading and reading.

Happy Birthday to Me!

It’s my birthday! The big 30! What a landmark. Happy birthday to me!

I suppose some people would be nervous to hit 30, but I’m actually excited for it. My 20’s have been excellent and I’ve done so many things, so I’m intrigued to see what my 30’s will bring. Woo!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you all had an excellent day. My day was filled with great food, excellent presents, amazing company, and really good memories. I’m such a huge Christmas fan, and even though I was delayed in feeling the Christmas spirit this year, I’m certainly feeling it now!
