We’re one month into winter and I’ll say I’ve hit the ground running. According to my Kindle reading insights, I’ve read for 8 consecutive weeks. Not bad if you ask me not bad at all.  While I’m viewing this as more of a personal challenge and a way to get my writing mojo back, I cannot help but find myself excited to make my way through my 2019 winter reading list. 

What’s On My Bookshelf 

In Death Series by JD Robb 

By autumn of this year, there will be 60 books in the series. Dating all the way back to 1995. Currently I’m on book 28 which was published in 2008. So ya girl has read 13 years of literature in exactly a month. If I continue on my current path, I will be finish up the current books by April. 

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

 I wrote about this for Quirktastic under novel  to film adaptions you should watch in 2019 . It just so happens it was my book club’s first read of the new year. It follows the day of two teenagers Natasha and Daniel, where Daniel tries to convince Natasha they´d fated to be together. Natasha is worried about her family´s upcoming deportation back to Jamaica. It’s a cute little YA book that asks some pretty serious life questions. 

An Unconditional Freedom by Alyssa Cole

This is the third book in the The Loyal League series which is set during The Civil War. Daniel is first introduced to us during An Extraordinary Love as Ellen’s ex-something and friend, who was born free but later kidnapped and  enslaved. I started this book after Cole graciously offered me an eARC and whew if it isn’t a read. I think this has been the hardest for me to get through but the topics aren’t for the lighthearted, but as always the writing is superb.

Breath of Dust & Dawn by L. Penelope 

This novella is a follow up to A Song of Blood and Stone, which was one of my favourite books last week. We get a glimpse of Jack and Jasminda´s life as a royal couple and co-leaders. With the revelations of the last book and racism Jasminda faced, I cannot wait to see how their transition has gone. 

Sin Bin by Maureen Smith

This is the third book in the Denver Rebel series. It follows the love story of Logan, who was introduced to readers as the team asshole during Wicked Games, but eventually mellows out. Logan grew up in the foster care system and reunited with someone he bonded with during those trying years. I love this entire universe, so I know this book won’t disappoint.

Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole

If you are a fan of Cole’s Reluctant Royal series, particularly A Princess in Theory, you’ll enjoy this novella. The romance between
Likotsi and Fabiola in Once Ghosted, Twice Shy was teased during a APIT and this novella allows up to follow up on the love of these two women after ghosting occurs. Talk about a relateable 21st century dating experience. 

To All The Boys I Loved Before Series by Jenny Han

Written by a fellow Tar Heel Jenny Han, To All the Boys I Loved Before series follows the life of Lara-Jean after her little sister sends out love letters she wrote to her crushes. This book has my favourite trope, fake dating, plus I fell in love with the Netflix movie. So it can’t not be a win for me.

Unmarriageable by Soniah Kamal

This is my book club’s February pick, but I first heard about it from the awesome folks over at WOC in Romance. It is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice set in Pakistan. The Binat family has lost their money but still kept their social status thanks to the family name. And of course, to save them a marriage or two to a man of higher status must occur. I don’t know much else about it, but my goal is to more nonwhite books. 

Becoming by Michelle Obama

This book does not need any introduction or explanation. Unless you’ve been in a coma for the last six month – in which case welcome back friend-  you’ve heard about Mrs. Obama’s autobiography Becoming. I picked it up in November, but between sickness and travel and holidays, I didn’t get around to reading much of it. But I shall before Spring is officially here.
