I’ve hardly read anything this summer. Okay, that’s a big fat lie; I’ve read a SHITLOAD of stuff this summer. Textbooks, poetry books (one of them 1000 pages), and 1200 pages of kidlit, so okay. I’ve read lots of stuff.
But I’ve hardly read anything for pleasure. Not many romances at all, which of course is my preferred genre. When I’ve had a free moment between all the other reading I’ve done, I haven’t exactly been in the mood to read and instead I’ve spent lots of time on YouTube.
That being said; I’ve read three books these last couple months that I’ve really loved and thought I’d tell you about them 🙂
A Sweet Man (M/M contemporary, 391 pages) is the seventh book in The Men of Halfway House series. Maybe you remember me raving about the fifth book in the series and how much I loved it, so when the seventh book was released back in June, I bought it and threw myself all over it. And I loved it! Granted, not as much as I loved A Worthy Man (book #5) but it was a five-star read for sure.
If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you also know that I’m a K.L. Noone fangirl, so of course I bought Of Starlit Balls and Starship Captains (M/F sci-fi, 6596 words), even though I usually don’t read sci-fi or M/F. But it was short and fabulous, and I loved it so much that I complained to Ms. Noone that it actually was too short. I wanted more of Kit and Arthur! Can you imagine? Me complaining about a story being too short?? 😁
The blurb of When Skies are Gray (M/M contemporary, 16 356 words) intrigued me when I read it, and I wanted to support my writing buddy Ofelia Gränd, so I bought it one afternoon when I was bored and had given myself some time off the studying. OMG, it was so good and it’s age-gap, one of my favorite tropes! I wasn’t surprised, of course, because everything I’ve read that she’s written has been great. (And if you haven’t read Trapped, you should. Immediately!) But these characters…they are extra special. I adore Levi, the big drama queen, and Doc, the most stubborn man on the planet, so the other day I stealthily sowed seeds in Ms. Gränd’s mind that I’d love to read a sequel. We shall see if she falls for my evil tricks 😁
I gave all three books five stars and I give them my warmest recommendations.
And now I’m in desperate need to catch up with my reading. Have any good recommendations for me? 🙂
