So, it is 2018. I am sitting here trying to find a book to read before taking all of the Christmas decorations down and wanted to write a little blog for you all.
I have set my read goal on Goodreads. Last year I set it at 300 and blew that out of the water and hit 836 books. I decided to set this year’s a little higher and went with 500. I hope that isn’t too high! What is your goal for this year? How many books do you want to read? 1, 5, 50, 1000?? No amount is too low or too high. It is just great to be able to at least read something.
Don’t know what to read? Don’t know any good authors? Well, that’s my goal, to share some of my favorites with you. I am going to give you some suggestions, and all you have to do is click on their name, or the book’s title to get directed to the Amazon page to buy.
Here are some of my favorites from 2017!!!
HJ Bellus– An amazing writer who knows how to write the characters that grab you and pull you in. I have been reading her for about 2 years now and she is one of my absolute favorites. I read everything that comes out by her. She is also an amazing person and I can not wait to meet her in person one day. Don’t know where to start? Here are a few of my faves from her:
The Big O– OMG it is hilarious and will have you laughing out loud! I love this book so much and recommend it to everyone! A MUST read by HJ!
Wild Country (Duet book 1)– Another must read, this is book one and you must read them both. Based on a true story and I fell in love with it.
Blue– I know this was one of the first books I read, and I loved it.
There isn’t a book out there of her’s that I wouldn’t read. She has new releases coming up to and you will know about them here for sure!!
Meghan Quinn– Another one of my authors that I read EVERYTHING she writes. Hilarious, romantic, and equally dirty in her own right. I love it all! I met her this year at Shameless book con and she is fantastic. Love her! Here are a couple suggestions to start your Meghan Quinn obsession:
The Virgin Romance Novelist– an absolute MUST read by Meghan Quinn!!! So funny!! I love it!
Bourbon Sins book 1– Formally known as The Jett Girl books. OMG! I think if I remember correctly it is the first series I read by Meghan Quinn. I read all of them. They are for sure must reads and it is a book series. You won’t regret it I promise.
Co- Wrecker – Book one of the series! They are all standalones and are all must reads, but start with this one. 🙂
KD Robichaux– Oh my dear Kayla! I love her!!! She is so fun and I am so glad that I found her books. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read a book with a hot as hell guy on the front right??? HEHE! Her books are great! Check out a couple that I love..
Confessions Duet Boxed Set– A must read that I love!!! You have to read it before you read my next favorite which is my favorite…..
SEVEN– One of my favorite books all year! Love it and I mean come on that cover is amazing!!
No Trespassing– You must read about Dean! I love this book and the characters are great. Another read I am glad I found and I devoured it!!
Alison Mello– So I just found her in October 2017. I was going to Shameless book convention and I didn’t know a lot of the authors. I started at “A” on the list and worked my way down. I love her writing style and everything I have read by her so far. I have only touched the surface of her books, but I do like them. She has many release upcoming and I will share them here with you as well. Check her out!
Club Thrive Series 1-3– This is where I started with her! Club Thrive is amazing! Loved it from the first chapter. I still have many to go, but by the end of the year I will read everything by her!
Shattered Souls– OMG!! This book!! I love it. I loved the fact that it is a military romance, but it is the woman that is in the service. An amazing read!
Chance Carter– YUP! A man that writes romance novels and is kick-ass at it! I love his writing style and his books. He’s good at being dirty!!I try to read everything by him, but I am not sure I have yet. Check him out!
Jacked– I love fighting books. This one is great and I believe one of the first I read from him.
Room Service– Loved it.. Not much else to say! I love romance books HA!
So there are 5 listed above to get you started in the New Year!! All 5 are in Kindle Unlimited!! If you haven’t done your 30 day trial, you need to. It will really open your eyes to books. I hope you at least check one of them out. I mentioned all of them in my blog the other day but I wanted to give you some links.
HJ Bellus is the safest if you are wanting cleaner books, she can get naughty, but not as much as some others. I love a great naughty, dirty book though 🙂 I will try this year to spotlight an author when I find a new one that I like. If you know of any I must read, let me know.
I will say with over 800 books read last year, I have found some really amazing authors and books. It is hard to pick just a couple to blog about. The ones I just did are people who stand out to me. There are SO many others I could write about, but I believe these are some must read authors and you will love them.
I wish you all a very great new year! I hope all of your hopes and dreams come true in the next 364 days. If it is love you are seeking, I hope you find the one that will sweep you off your feet, give you butterflies in your stomach, and earth shattering moments where you know you would never leave them. If it is a new career, I hope you will be successful and happy. What ever it may be you are looking forward to this year, I hope it all meets your expectations and more!
With much love and happiness!
