the duke and I cover review

The Duke and I

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‘€

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

A Rose in Winter

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.

Outlander Series: (Voyager + Drums of Autumn)

Author: Diana Gabaldon

I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.

I read it fast and not just because it was the first book of the Outlander series which was completely new to me since Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber I already knew what would happen because of the TV Show, no, this one I read really fast because of the parts where Claire was on her own, those blurred.

Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, kindly stop if you have not read.

List of Favourite Characters and Books

There are times when my feelings are not that this book is better than the other, I am mostly inclined to believe that all books have their own little things, different details that make them unique and I do not like comparing them to each other.

The same happens with the characters, specially the male characters clearly, which is why I decided to compile them all up in one place, though it has been sometime since I last read the books, the characters still continue to be a presence. Here is a list of my top characters and books but it is not yet complete.
