Recent Reads: Witches and Werewolves and Heartbreakers

Recent Reads is feature here on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookly app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). Recently I dove into worlds of witches, werewolves, and heartbreakers.

Mini Review: Pact With A Heartbreaker (Havenbrook #2.5) by: Brighton Walsh

Release Date: July 11, 2019
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Mackenna Haven is desperate to leave Havenbrook, Mississippi behind. After spending her whole life under the thumb of her overbearing father, she's ready for the freedom college will bring. Especially if that freedom means spending more time with her best friend…and unrequited love.

Hudson Miller's been the man of the house since his dad died nearly ten years ago. The only escape he has from those responsibilities is the stolen moments when he’s with Kenna. As much as he wants to tell her he’s been in love with her for years, the red X looming on his calendar could change everything between them.

A week before school starts, Hudson proposes a trip away with Mackenna as one last weekend together before college responsibilities creep in. Except it could be one last weekend together, period. Because the secret he's been keeping from her could tear them apart forever."

My Thoughts:

In a short amount of pages, Brighton Walsh managed to rip my heart out of my chest. I have loved Mac in the other books in this series, but now I just absolutely adore her. Her and Hudson just became my favorites of this series and I cannot wait to get my hands on their full length novel. Friends to more is one of my favorite tropes and Mac and Hudson are everything I love about that trope. They have such great banter and are so much fun together and then their chemistry is off the charts. But this novella is not the end of their story and I just cannot wait to see what happens with them years down the line. These two are going to have so much to work out and I know it’s not going to be easy but I also know Brighton Walsh will deliver a sweet and funny and witty and hot as hell read and I simply cannot wait. If you’ve already started this series you have got to get your hands on this novella and if you haven’t started the series yet then you can dive right into this novella since its technically a prequel to the first book… either way this is a short and steamy and heartbreaking read that is not to be missed.

On My Shelf: Devils & Thieves by: Jennifer Rush

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.


This one sounds so fantastic! I remember being so excited for this one but then of course I just never had the time to read it. Also still love the cover.

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

Book Review: Girl On A String by: Leah Montgomery

Release Date: July 10, 2019
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.

"Keeping up with the perfect life isn’t easy, and Emma Kramer Sterling has the perfect life. She has wealth, status, and a husband that's the envy of every woman. Sure, she has to self-medicate occasionally, but who in her circle doesn’t?

But Emma’s life isn’t nearly as perfect as she thought. In fact, it’s a house of cards, and it’s getting ready to come tumbling down.

A frightened woman in need of help shows up at Emma’s door. Emma leaves the room and, when she returns, the woman and her child are gone. There is no evidence that they were there, but Emma knows what she saw. Doesn’t she?

She might’ve been able to convince her friends and family, and even herself, of the truth if that had been the only incident. But it wasn’t. It was only the first.

In a few short weeks, Emma goes from belle of the ball to social outcast. Everyone in her life thinks she’s crazy. And they might not be wrong. The Kramers have a secret after all, and Emma could be following in her grandmother’s footsteps.

Murder was never part of the deal before.

But it is now."

My Thoughts:

Leah Montgomery delivers a wonderful debut with Girl On A String. This is a story of a woman who has had her entire life controlled and what finally happens when she no longer wants to be controlled. It’s addictive and engaging and nearly impossible to put down.

My absolute favorite thing about this book is Emma and how unreliable she is as a narrator. I adore her but as a narrator you can’t trust everything and I love that and I find it so fascinating. I love books with unreliable narrators and Leah Montgomery absolutely nails it. It’s so well done and you feel as if you are experiencing everything right alongside Emma. I also just loved her journey. She is so much more than the front she puts up and I think she’s fantastic.

This book delivered so many twists and turns. I thought I had it pegged. I thought I knew what was going on and oh man was I so wrong and I was taken so off guard. But once everything came to light it just all clicked into place and was awesome.

All in all, Girl On A String is an amazing read and an engaging and addictive psychological thriller. This book gets in your head and under your skin in the best way. I highly recommend.

This is a relatively new feature I have started on the blog. Each month I am going to feature the upcoming releases I am most looking forward to. July is looking good.

July 2, 2019
I loved Contagion and it was so addictive and I really cannot wait to dive into Immunity and see how this all comes together.

I am dying for this book! The end of Heart Of Iron destroyed me and I just need this book so badly.

July 23, 2019
JLA always delivers and I am so excited for this novella. The Prince was so great and I love this world so much so of course I'm excited for the series to continue.

June Releases: Did I Read It?


So I recently started a monthly post that features upcoming releases I am looking forward to. 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 June releases post.

I did not have a chance to read this one, but I am still really looking forward to it and want to make time for it soon. It is a stunning cover and just sounds so good.

I haven't gotten to the new stories included in this bind up, but I did read the others as they released as an ebook... so partial win here haha. My reviews of the novellas can be found here.

Another one I did not get to yet, I want to listen to this one on audio and I am hoping my library will order it soon so I'm waiting on that. But really curious to see where this series goes.

Sadly, I started reading this one and then I just wasn't feeling it so I DNFed it.

I didn't get to this one either... still love the cover though.

I did read this one and I ABSOLUTELY loved it. It was so so good and Zayne and Trinity are just the best. My review can be found here.

I haven't had a chance to read this one yet but I do hope to read it shortly. It sounds like a good one.

Still have to make time for this one as well, but really looking forward to the continuation of this series cause Kagawa always delivers.

I did not do all that great at getting to the June releases I wanted to, but hopefully I can rectify that soon.
