  1. The Sea of Tranquility was amazing. The last line of the book has stuck with me for years.
    I’ve had Missing in Action on my Kindle for so long and still haven’t read it. I need to make that happen.

  2. I am surprised I only read one of these, though, I have read books from many of the authors. It’s been too long since I read Canterbary. I need to pick up one of her books soon

  3. I didn’t connect with this week’s Top Ten either. I checked out Maverick by Karina Halle as the cover pulled me in, but it sounds like it is pretty steamy from the blurb.

    1. Yeah, I don’t know that Maverick would be for you. You might like the first book better.

  4. Reading books is one thing, reviewing them is another. I’m ALWAYS behind on reviewing. I usually try to do a review marathon at the end of the year to make sure I review everything I’ve read that year, but last year, I just DIDN’T review a bunch of books. Gasp! It was actually very liberating!

    Happy TTT!


    1. I feel like I’ve stepped away from reviewing in the past few months. It might not seem like it, but I’ve mostly reviewed ARCs with a few others spattered in. I kind of like it like that.

  5. (I’ve lurked here a few times, but this is my first comment.)

    I loved, loved, loved Karla Sorenson’s FORBIDDEN. It’s definitely on my Favorites of 2021 list and is one of the best slow-burn romances I’ve ever read. I really liked that there were reasons on both the hero’s and heroine’s parts that they did not rush into a relationship. I also liked how Sorensen used unresolved sexual tension to make completely unsexy activities (like switching out a light fuse) very sexy. All in all, a great book.

    I also enjoyed THE BELLE AND THE BEARD—it didn’t rank right up there with my favorite Canterbary books (FAR CRY, MISSING IN ACTION), but it had all of the Canterbary hallmarks—except instead of a dog, there was a cat.

    1. Welcome! Thank you for lurking and now commenting!
      I am happy to hear you loved Forbidden. That entire series is so good!
      Missing in Action was a great book! I haven’t read Far Cry yet. It’s on my list. I’m binging that series next. My favorite of hers is probably The Cornerstone.

  6. I do that too- sometimes I have a book I REALLY liked but for some reason didn’t review it. It’s fun to share them once in a while 🙂

  7. I think I saw you reading those Tessa Bailey books on Goodreads and that’s why I picked them up and I loved them, too! I didn’t review them either but I want to so that makes me wanna re-read them to review them 😂 I also really enjoyed Shameless (though I still don’t agree with that title lol)! Great post 😍

  8. The Sea of Tranquility!!! *sobs*
    Those Tessa Bailey books are my favorite books from her in recent years. I need to read the Kate Canterbarry book. I love her writing!

  9. Oh great idea for a TTT! I keep meaning to try and filter which books to review and which ti skip, but I’m so bad with choices that reviewing them all seems easier.

  10. I love this idea! There are times that I feel guilty not reviewing books that I enjoyed, but there is only so much time and energy that can be spent on it. The Sea of Tranquility looks intriguing and mysterious. I will have to check it out! 🙂
