Fast Five Friday FIVE DEBUT AUTHORS NOT TO MISS

Processed with MOLDIV

 

Hey Bookworms! I had been meaning to post this Fast Five Friday last year so many times, but then when I realized what day of the week it was Friday had just passed…

So without further adieu you MUST check out these 5 authors that published their FIRST Novel or their second but were new to me last year. I loved each of these author’s books and cannot wait to see what they come up with next! Please GO SUPPORT these new authors navigating this book world has got to be the hardest thing ever along with having to read online reviews of their work. I’m not sure about you, but I don’t know if I could stomach someone giving me an awful, rude review… ANYWAYS, I HIGHLY recommend each of these authors’ books so GO READ Them!

WEEKEND BOOKED!

My TOP READS of 2017

Check out my TOP READS for 2017!!!

As a Blogger, I try to read as many unique books that would cater to my followers. You all know that Romance Novels are my jam and at times I deviate a little bit to give structure and a nice break in other reading genres. But, I just love my romance stories and will never quit them! So onto my list – it is so hard to limit my books but I can’t leave you with a Top Reads List of 17 books. Well I guess I could, but I feel like it should be like Instagram Top 9 pics of the year where I pick my Top 9 Reads of the Year. If you want to access my FULL TOP READS LIST check out my Goodreads account.

My criteria for being in my TOP READS is that reflecting back on the list, I should be able to recall the plot and some characters names (sorry I read A LOT and I tend to forget characters names and story details…). If a book consumed me like I tend to find myself thinking about this book after the fact (certain things remind me a character/part of the story). And my major thing is that when I read the book I HAD to DEVOUR it, because why else would I include it in that list?

Sidenote: None of these authors have paid and/or influenced my views of being added to this list. I have selected these authors’ books as I truly, truly, truly LOVED these books! 

 

Okay now that is out of the way. Are you ready for my list????

Lisa Suzanne’s A LITTLE LIKE DESTINY series just consumed me. This entire series is included in my TOP READS because when I read these books I devoured them. Straight up read them cover to cover barely taking a break, but only to have a shot of tequila and remind myself to breathe! If you love a love triangle story READ THIS SERIES!

 

[book-info title=”2″ author=”2″ number=”2″]

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Kennedy Ryan’s GRIP series is another series that just took over my life! There is so much to say about these three books in the series, but I don’t even know where to begin. It is about a mismatched couple with so many differences from each other, but you just HAVE TO READ it. I read these three books back to back. The final book, STILL, is broken up into 2 parts. The first part I absolutely fell in love more with the couple than I ever thought that I could. The second part, had me crying so hard (probably the most ever from a book) that I most likely will ever be able to read again. BUT I will devour this series and Part 1 of STILL and just skip over Part 2 to the Epilogue.

[book-info title=”3″ author=”3″ number=”3″]

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Charleigh Rose’s MISBEHAVED is definitely a book NOT to miscalculate and forget to read it. I felt at times it had a bit of Colleen Hoover’s TOO LATE vibes in this story. So if you have read that book I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you read MISBEHAVED. It has that wrong side of the tracks/student-teacher forbidden romance.

 

[book-info title=”4″ author=”4″ number=”4″]

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Rachel Van Dyken’s FRATERNIZE is just AMAZING! I had read a few of her other books this year and was not that impressed, BUT when I read FRATERNIZE I could not put it down and did I mention its about Football?!?!? If you have followed me for awhile then you know that I am all about the FOOTBALL ROMANCES! This is another love triangle – no cheating – that gives you a surprise. I can’t wait to have a reread getting to experience the book in an entirely different way knowing how it ends. And there is a sequel for the characters with INFRACTION debuting January 9th!

 

[book-info title=”5″ author=”5″ number=”5″]

 

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Laurelin Paige’s DIRTY FILTHY RICH MEN is dark, steamy, and H-O-T! If you like a total Asshole, Dark, and Twisted Guy (Sign me up, ha!) then you will fall so hard for Donovan Kincaid! Donovan, Donovan, Donovan I don’t know what it is about you that makes me swoon so hard for you that wouldn’t even look twice at me hehe!!!

 

[book-info title=”6″ author=”6″ number=”6″]

 

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Have you been introduced to LJ Shen’s Hot Holes yet? If that’s a No, then you need to stop what you are doing and go meet my fave Hot Hole VICIOUS – STAT! Here is another asshole hotness that I just fell for – maybe I really do need therapy – and could not get enough of. Shen currently has four published books in her Sinners of Saint series but my heart will always be with #1 VICIOUS!

[book-info title=”7″ author=”7″ number=”7″]

 

 

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

The craziest, craziest book series that I read this year goes to The NEW CAMELOT TRILOGY by Sierra Simone! This book series just took me for a wild ride. It was a total mind fuck! I mean I don’t even know how to accurately explain this book series to you. If you love a good political, MFM, light BDSM/Dominant, and a twist on the Camelot tale you will fall in love with Sierra Simone’s writing! This book makes you feel smarter reading it too, hehe.

 

[book-info title=”8″ author=”8″ number=”8″]

 

 

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

Lisa Suzanne gets another spot on my TOP READS List with STALEMATE. This book has everything for a perfect romance novel! The main characters: Emme & Axel have been dating for awhile and moving towards that next step of marriage. But Emme isn’t interested so they are at a STALEMATE in their relationship. I can’t pinpoint as to why I just fell in love with this story, but Lisa’s writing with this love story is just PERFECTION! I even changed my phone timer to the chickens because it reminded of this love story.

[book-info title=”1″ author=”1″ number=”1″]

 

 

[rating stars=”five-stars”]

My final book to round out my Top 9 Reads for 2017 goes to THE MAP THAT LEADS TO YOU by J.P. Monninger. First off, I am usually not a fan of insta-love, but in this book it works perfectly!!! The crossing of lives between Heather & Jack on a train ride to Amsterdam changes their life course indefinitely along with their current travel plans. The hilarious, intelligent banter between Heather and Jack just has you falling in love with them from their first conversation.

If you have always dreamed of backpacking through Europe with your girlfriends or have experienced it then this is the book for you!

Hope that you enjoy my list and please tell me if you enjoyed any of these books and/or what I should read that you loved in 2018! And if you read any of my book recommendations please DM, comment below, or on my Instagram what you thought of my recs!

 

Hope that have a good ending to 2017 and an

even better beginning to 2018!

I finished American King yesterday and I don’t want it to be over 😭😭😭 I just love The New Camelot Trilogy and what Sierra Simone created with these books! If you’re needing to pass the time until your kindle refreshes with your preordered copy of American King check out the ‘Family Tree’ of the characters that I created. It does NOT contain any American King spoilers it is updated to the end of American Prince. I created this because I needed a visual of all the characters and how they are connected to each other. While my husband was watching the World Series last night this is what I was doing. He already thinks I’m crazy since I was bawling after finishing the book and then creating this character map 😂😂😂🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth. And here I am. My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal. And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return. I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.

While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.

But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.

Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire – a genie. Her family had three wishes and they’d only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he’d become a member of the family anyway.

Even with a genie, Lily’s young life wasn’t perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things).

He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world.

Nathaniel McAllister wasn’t born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily.

Unfortunately, Lily’s wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn’t only a good genie, he loved Lily – so he gave her exactly what she wanted.
