This readathon didn’t go quite as planned.
Alright so this readathon definitely started off a little rocky… I was transitioning to working at home Monday and Tuesday so I got minimal (almost no) reading done. So it wasn’t until Wednesday that I finally picked up my first book!
Luckily my reading mojo came back by the weekend so I was still able to read few things which I’m happy about. AND I’m officially obsessed with historical romance now. I want to read it all (and have ordered an absolutely ton).
Check out my TBR post for all the info on challenges, hosts, etc.
1. Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Omg I loved this book! I was immediately obsessed and purchased the entire series by the 100 page mark. This series follows a family, The Ravenel, and each book is about one of the siblings/cousins. This book in particular was a forbidden, enemies to lover romance that I couldn’t get enough of. I loved how brooding but secretly soft the male MC was and how strong willed the herione was. I loved their chemistry and banter. I had a few minor complaints, but I’ll talk about those in my review (when I get around to writing it). Overall it was a really good time.
I cannot wait for my copies of the other books to get here so I can binge this entire series!
2. Wicked and the Wallflower (The Bareknuckle Bastards #1) by Sarah MacLean ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This book took me a bit to get into – but I think that was the fault of the audiobook not the story itself. Since this isn’t a genre I read often, I found listening and retaining to be more challenging. But by the halfway point, I was swooning. I absolutely fell in love with these character and this romance had me blushing like crazy. I’m so glad I also ordered the first 2 books in this series too! Because I 100% plan to read the sequel once it arrives.
3. A Study in Scarlet Women (Lady Sherlock #1) by Sherry Thomas – Currently Reading
This book has been on my TBR forever, and I’m so proud of myself for finally picked it up. I’m not very far in, only about 20%, but so far I’m not loving it… This story jumps between a million different perspectives (sometimes after only a paragraph or 2) and timelines. Which makes it really difficult to follow the plot or remember how all the characters are connected. The one word I could you to describe this so far is: tedious….
If you have any historical romance recommendations, please leave me some in the comments!!
