On My Shelf: The Bookworm And The Beast by: Charlee James

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

I grabbed this last year around Christmas because it sounded like a good holiday read, it has beauty and the beast themes, there is a doggo on the cover, and sweet romance is promised. This sounds like a recipe perfect for Teresa. Sadly I didn't get to it last year, but with Christmas coming maybe the time is right to read it now.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Book Review: Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson #5) by: Patricia Briggs

Release Date: March 30, 2010
from Ace Books
Goodreads | Amazon

"Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, never knows what the day - or night - may bring in a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shapeshifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist). But she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous whose who seek them are just plain deadly...

Mercy is smart enough to realize that when it comes to the magical fae, the less you know, the better. But you can't always get what you want. When she attempts to return a powerful fae she previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.

It seems the book contains secrets - and the fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side - leaving Mercy to cover for him lest his own father declare Samuel's life forfeit.

All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she may not have many more..."

My Thoughts:

This series just continues to get better and better. I am just flying through these books and they are all so easy to devour.

Mercy just feels like my new best friend now and I just adore her so much. She’s just so much fun and so feisty and so strong. She continually finds herself in trouble, but she is always up for the task. And now that she’s in the pack she is dealing with all the ramifications of that and dealing with those who are not thrilled she’s there. But she’s up for it and she’s got this. And Adam is worth the trouble. I adore Adam. He is just so good and he clearly worships the ground Mercy walks on. These two have such great chemistry and they work so well together. And as they both open up more their bond just gets stronger and stronger. They’re seriously one of my favorite couples. And then the side characters. Ben has sealed the spot as my favorite. Which did not see that happening but I love him now. Warren is still wonderful and Bran is just such a great character. And then Sam. Oh my heart Sam hurt me in this one but I love him so.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was action packed from beginning to end and there was just so much constantly going on. I love all of these storylines and how it all wove together. And certain things come back to play here and just OH MAH GAH. ALL THE THINGS.

All in all, Silver Borne was an addictive book from beginning to end. This series has such a great cast of characters and is such a fun world and I’m ready to keep diving in.

December Releases I Am Looking Forward To

Upcoming Releases is a monthly post where each month I feature the upcoming releases I am most looking forward to. Here are the books I am most excited for in December!

December 3, 2019
This just sounds like a lot of fun and I love the Jane Austen tie in.

December 10, 2019
I have heard people compare this book to early CoHo such as Slammed and Hopeless... being that Slammed is one of my all time favorite books, that makes me incredibly excited for this one. Plus, CoHo doesn't disappoint.

December 18, 2019
I am such a big fan of this series and it has been some of my favorite reads this year. Cannot wait to see what trouble Lucky gets up to next.
UPDATE: this release has been pushed back to January 2020 but I am still super excited for it!

November Releases: Did I Read It?

Did I Read It? is a monthly post that revisits the books featured in my Upcoming Releases post. I thought it would be fun to revisit those posts at the end of the month and see if I ended up reading the books or not and if I did see what I thought about it.

Head on over here to check out my November releases post.

I ended up DNFing this one and I am SO SO SO SAD about it. I adored the first book in this series, but I am a moody reader and I just was not feeling this one. I do hope to revisit it someday and try again.

Have not read this one yet, still really really really want to. That cover is stunning. 

I love this series and this book was no exception. It was such a fun read and Lucky is an amazing character. Check out my review here.

I still have not started this series, but I just know I am going to love it. It is right up my alley.

Amalie Howard has never let me down and she didn't here with her Beauty and the Beast meets Taming of the Shrew historical romance. Check out my review here.
