If you read The Duke and I then you should read… ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ“š

If you read the Duke and I then you should probably/would probably read these romance books.

Hello, dearies! 

I know, it has been some time since I published a new one, and this one not even a review? The horror! 

I have been working in my mundane job, and my reading has been the lowest in months. I am supposed to be reading The Brightest Night (which I have loved so far) but I stopped before half of it was over because I want a clearer mind to pay attention to it, so you might say that I am in a reading slump. Nothing to do with my last read, I love the Origin and Lux world.

The Duke and I

The Duke and I, the book that made it impossible for me to read anything else for a month and the one who I could have finished in two days.

โญโญโญ

Author: Julia Quinn

Bridgertons Series Book 1

Genre: Romance, Historical Romance, Regency, Adult (sort of)

Guess what? This rarely happens to me but it took me over a month to read The Duke and I, shocking! I know. ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ˜ต

And I finish half the book and a night and a morning, with some hours of sleep in between and also like an hour of work thrown in there. I mean, itโ€™s outrageous to believe that for the whole of February, I didnโ€™t feel the need to pick up the book and when I did I often put it down after a few pages because I would drift very often and not know what I was reading, the words would not compute. 

Iโ€™m sorry for this author, JQ, but maybe itโ€™s something in her narrative, and Iโ€™m sorry for all the fans out there but itโ€™s the truth. Alright, alright. I will begin to talk a bit more about the plot and story and will also compare it with the Netflix show, I watched it before reading this. Soโ€ฆ possible spoilers ahead.๐Ÿ‘€

A Lion’s Pride – First Three

I finished these three in a few days because theyโ€™re quite the quick read, oh yes, I just jumped in this time, donโ€™t worry there are no spoilers on this. Anyway, A Lionโ€™s Pride the Series by Eve Langlais are a fun read like most of Eveโ€™s books, I have read tons by her, even though I donโ€™t have the reviews here on the blog, they get me out of book-slumps, book-hangovers, and the sort, they made me get going and jump into other series.

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Hello, dearies! How is December going? Mine is a bit cold and expecting it to be colder as the 24th approaches.ย 

This one will be short as the previous, sorry if I have been a little absent from social media and given quick reviews but work has been full-time, and sleep not so constant, yet, here we are again with another set of books.

A Rose in Winter

The great thing about Shana Abeโ€™s books, is that in the end, you end up liking them, in some way or another.

Author: Shana Abe

Genres: Historical, Romance, European Literature, Fiction, Adult

The great thing about Shana Abeโ€™s books, is that in the end, you end up liking them, in some way or another. Of course, nothing compares to The Drakon Series, which I still believe to be greatest ones Iโ€™ve read by her, next to The Sweetest Dark books, but A Rose in Winter had me from ugh to ooh to aww to wow, I did not give it 5 stars because there was not that total awesome and abandonment into it that had drawn me to other books, but I enjoyed it enough, and if you brave it out through the middle of it, then youโ€™re good at the end, it was a nice ending and there a plot twist here and there that I didnโ€™t expect.

Oh, the main characterโ€™s name is Damon, so, of course, I had to go on reading until I knew how it all ended.

This one is quite short since I just thought to share with you guys this rather quick read I had, I mean according to my ebook reader, it took me about 9 hours to finish the book, and that divided in several days, which mean I could have finished the book in a day if I had had the time to do as much.Thatโ€™s it for now. I hope you found a new book to read. You can read the description here.

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi

Alternative names: The World’s Greatest First Love: The Case of Ritsu Onodera (ไธ–็•Œไธ€ๅˆๆ‹ ใ€œๅฐ้‡Žๅฏบๅพ‹ใฎๅ ดๅˆใ€œ, Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi: Onodera Ritsu no Baai)

Author: Shungiku Nakamura

Official site: Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi

If you are here, I am going to assume that you know about Sekaiichi and Junjou Romantica because I know that not everyone watches these animes or reads the Manga. Today is about the Manga and a little bit about the Anime, a bit of a comparison might be seen farther ahead.

Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 seasons of the show, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, at the moment.

Seven Years to Sin (Review… sort of)

Author: Sylvia Day

Well, if you are into romance and historical, and as a plus adult fiction than you most definitely will absolutely love what goes down with Lady Jessica and the rather rakish Mr. Alistair Caulfield

Alright, let me be honest with this oneโ€ฆ Sylvia Day has an excellent imagination and the few books I have read of her have been really great, she does has a lot of books under her name and reading them all in less than a month would be viableโ€ฆ if only the to-read list with many amazing authors and promising titles was not as long as it is.

Intimate Enemies

Author: Shana Abe

Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!

How many times do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.

Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shanaโ€™s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didnโ€™t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.

I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170โ€™s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Donโ€™t worry there is not much spoiler here.

50 Shades of Grey

I will do this one quick and to the point, sort of. Maybe not so quick.

Book and Movie

Alright, as many of you may know, I don’tย  normallyย  do moviesย  here but I haven’tย  done 50 shades the book either and since I saw the movie, I felt like I should let it out of my system. Then I decided to make a little combo just for the sake of it and because Jamie is an awesome actor.

FSOG the book

Many of you know that it was originally thought as a Twilight fan fiction, no matter what anyone might try to say to deny that, and let us face it, dearies, the resemblance is there, if you want a short list of how they are alike, then I can give it to you now.
