Okay so I know I’m a lil late into January for this post pero like..what’s new, fam?! LOL!
Today I decided to sit down and show y’all my TBR for the month of January! There’s not that many books but, aside from letting y’all know what I’m currently reading, I thought this would be a good idea to get myself in order and actually KNOW and keep record of where I got these books from. I haven’t gotten anymore books but, the amount I have is absolute criminal and so disorganized.
ANYWAY, enough rambling about how messy I am, haha!
Let’s get to it, chicos y chicas, y todo lo demas!:)
I’m looking to dive into the tv show as well so I thought I’d read the book first, of course! Witches, man. SUPER excited to get into this one! I’m sure most of you are familiar with this book but if you’re not..
Synopsis: Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell…
These next books are either erotica/adult or horror so I won’t be reviewing them on this blog, I’ll be reviewing them on the second blog I will create in the coming weeks. I still haven’t thought of a name for it though! Anywho, back to the books!
..this is an interesting one. This was a free Amazon find that caught my eye when I was on a bit of a erotica kick as is the next book I’m showing you guys. (This is part of a series.)
Synopsis: Her story started long before she started working at The Sky Launch…
Screw fairytales. The only reward Gwen Anders got from her rough childhood was a thick skin and hard heart. She’s content with her daily grind managing a top NYC nightclub—Eighty-Eighth Floor. So hers isn’t a happily ever after. She doesn’t believe in those anyway.
Then she meets J.C.
The rich, smooth talking playboy is the sexiest thing that Gwen has ever encountered, but she’s not interested in a night-in-shining latex. But when a family tragedy pushes her to the brink, it’s J.C. who’s there to teach her a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires. His no-strings-attached lessons require her to abandon her constant need for control. Her carefully built walls are obliterated.
Gwen discovers there’s a beautiful world outside her prison. Freedom is exhilarating—and terrifying. When she starts to feel something for J.C., she fears for her heart. Especially as she realizes that he has secrets of his own. Secrets that don’t want to set him free.
This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.
I’ve come to love books by Alexa Riley. Are they smutty? Absolutely, haha! But they’re also short and pack a punch!
Synopsis: Sage Carter has spent her whole life surrounded by her family that treats her like a child. When she finally decides to live life on her own, it’s still under the shelter of her brother’s apartment. But the day before Thanksgiving, his business partner comes to visit and just so happens to find her in the kitchen…in her underwear. Can she make it through the holiday without dying of embarrassment? Or will the incident be the spark that lights the fire from within?
Jensen Powell has done things in his own way on his own timeline. When he’s forced to go home with his business partner for Thanksgiving, he doesn’t expect to find a curvy bombshell waiting for him. One look and she belongs to him, if only she’ll give in. He hasn’t had a reason to be thankful until now, and he’s making the most of it.
Warning: This Turkey Day romance is stuffed full of all your favorites. It’s warm and sweet with all the guilty pleasures you’re after. Go ahead and get second helpings. Nobody is looking.
This series is daaark. But, Reisz has really become one of my favorite authors. She’s not afraid to get into the really dark side of humanity. And create gritty and flawed characters that you somehow still root for..
Synopsis: The final book in The Original Sinners Series – The Red Years.
There’s punishment-and then there’s vengeance.
Nora Sutherlin is being held, bound and naked. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captor isn’t interested in play. Or pity.
As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories-sensual tales of Søren, Kingsley and Wesley, each of whom has tempted and tested and tortured her in his own way. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It’s a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.
But in Nora’s world, no one is ever truly powerless-a cadre of her friends, protectors and lovers stands ready to do anything to save her, even when the only certainty seems to be sacrifice and heartbreak….
Another Amazon find. I’m not sure if I’ll get to it this month- I think my hype for it has died down but, we’ll see!
Synopsis: Lawyer Andrew Coles needs a date for the next Southerland wedding, one who will keep the pitying looks at bay and make his favorite bridesmaid regret walking away from him. But most importantly one who doesn’t come with strings attached. He doesn’t need or want the complication of a romantic relationship.
When exotic dancer Candy Graham rear ends a pickup truck on the way to a new job and much needed cash, she knows she’s in trouble. Her totaled car puts a damper on her plans and plants her firmly on the wrong side of the law. She needs a lawyer fast and preferably one who can be flexible with payment.
A straightforward business arrangement solves both of their problems. He gets a wedding date with no hidden agenda, and she gets her legal problems to disappear. Perfect. Until a relationship of convenience turns into something neither can live without.
I was in the search for the longest series possible- a challenge for myself I guess you could say. And I was told this was one pretty long so I decided to give it a try. I have a lot of series in this post..huh. I’ve heard about these books before (and watched the Disney channel version of the movie) growing up but never gave them a try till now. I will be reviewing on this blog so keep an eye out!
Synopsis: Kristy thinks the Baby-sitters Club is a great idea. She and her friends Claudia, Stacey, and Mary Anne all love taking care of kids. A club will give them the chance to have lots of fun – and make tons of money.
But nobody counted on crank calls, uncontrollable two-year-olds, wild pets, and parents who don’t always tell the truth. And then there’s Stacey, who’s acting more and more mysterious. Having a baby-sitters club isn’t easy, but Kristy and her friends aren’t giving up until they get it right!
I won this book in a giveaway, actually. I’ve heard it of it and I can’t wait to dive into it!
Synopsis: Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soulmate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pundit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her 18th birthday, and Raj meets all of the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked to return from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. Worse, Raj is crowned chair of the student film festival, a spot Winnie was counting on for her film school applications. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.
Then there’s Dev, a fellow film geek, and one of the few people Winnie can count on to help her reclaim control of her story. Dev is smart, charming, and challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope to find someone she’d pick for herself. But does falling for Dev mean giving up on her prophecy, and her chance to live happily ever after? To get her Bollywood-like life on track, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family, and of course, a Bollywood movie star.
These next two are quite ”controversial” because many people have MANY opinions on the lifestyle these books talk about. I will be reviewing these on my secondary blog.(books were free on Amazon!)
Synopsis: William Darkling is a successful, sexy older bachelor with the world at his feet but he’s missing the one thing he needs more than anything.
Haley has just turned eighteen and is ready to learn about love and shed some of her innocence. After a traumatic birthday party, she wakes up tied to a bed at the mercy of the person she trusts most.
Haley has always been his pet, but now William wants more. He wants to to love her as every Daddy should love their little girl
Warning: There is sweetly sexy, explicit dirty fun inside this short novella. Along with DD/LG play.
Synopsis: Working in a sex club is not easy, but I didn’t have any other option. With no special skill, no parent alive, and no siblings to take care of me, I could either survive on my small income or leave the job and die from hunger.
I chose to survive on my small job as a waitress in his club, but day by day it started getting tough with all those muggers and bullies around me. And just when I was ready to give up, he came in my life.
I had everything in my life- power, strength, uncountable zeros in my bank account, and new girl each day in my bed but still something was missing.
And then I saw her.
One glance at the little blonde hair girl and I was possessed by her. Her beauty, her innocence, her cuteness, I wanted it all for myself. I wanted to become her daddy- who was going to feed her with his hand and with his cock, both.
But the only problem was, How?
This next one is a horror e-book that I received from the author via Booktasters! I’m 10% into it and I love it so far!
Synopsis: When an enigmatic town doctor saves the life of Anisa Worthington’s dying son, she abandons Christianity in favor of devotion to the cult of Santa Muerte or Saint Death. Some believe the mysterious skeleton saint will protect their loved ones, help in matters of the heart, and provide abundant happiness, health, wealth, and justice. But others, including the Catholic Church, call the cult blasphemous, evil, and satanic.
Anisa introduces Saint Death to her friend Helen Randon, and soon one of Helen’s enemies is brutally murdered. Residents of Montague, a peaceful little town in Prince Edward Island, begin plotting to rid the Bible belt of apostates.
Anisa suspects Helen is perverting the good tenets of Saint Death. Before she can act, a terrible nightmare propels her to the Dominican Republic in search of Franklin, her long-lost and unstable brother, who mysteriously disappeared without a trace twenty years ago.
To her horror, Anisa learns Franklin is worshiping Saint Death with evil intentions. As a fanatical and hell-bent lynch mob tightens the noose, mysterious murders begin occurring all around Anisa. Unsure who’s an enemy and who’s an ally, she’s thrust into a violent battle to save her life, as well as the lives of her friends and brother.
So there it is! These are the books I’m reading for the month of January! Might change, maybe there will be less- or more, haha! But so far I’m happy with this number. We’ll see what happens!
Take care, y’all!
Xoxo, Gigi. 💋
