I was fully planning on joining Romanceopoly at the start of the year but obviously my year didn’t begin the way I wanted it to. I was going to just skip it because I have a lot going on but because of my fatigue I spend a lot of time everyday reading (hello 16 books read). So even though I just posted my 2020 Bookish and Blog Goals where I said that I want to streamline my monthly TBR I’m still going to go for it. I will try to pick books already on my TBR (which worked out pretty well this month) but these are bonus books where if I get a chance to read them I will. If you want to join in on the fun here is the website.
I am sort of making up my own rules to play. The first half of the year I’m going to do the sun challenges and the second half I will do the moon challenges. I’m also rolling the dice and I’m just going to read anything I land on. That means if I make it around the board multiple times and land on a prompt I have already done I will just pick a different book for the challenge. I decided to do three rolls this month plus I added in the Winter challenge.
This is a book already on my TBR.
On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside, are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.
Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.
Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?
Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.
But who can she trust?
FATED FOLLY (sun)
Another book already on my TBR.
The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.
Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hunger—one that threatens to consume them both…
PASSION PLACE (sun)
Not on my TBR but it is a KU book. It is also a book and an author I have wanted to read for awhile.
It was the biggest day of my life.
I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their first child. My situation was a little different.
Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold.
Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell.
He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end.
I was his tool and his weapon.
And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.
I borrowed this book from my brother either last year or the year before so it is about time that I finally read it.
L.A. Confidential is epic “noir”, a crime novel of astonishing detail and scope written by the bestselling author of The Black Dahlia. A horrific mass murder invades the lives of victims and victimizers on both sides of the law. And three lawmen are caught in a deadly spiral, a nightmare that tests loyalty and courage, and offers no mercy, grants no survivors.
