Hey Readers, last month I totally forgot to do this! So I have two months of Books to give awards to!

April 2016

In April, I read 7 books. Of the 7, I reviewed 6 books! Whew. Two of those books had specific dates when they had to be out and I had to keep planning around them, haha.

Here are my Books that I read and/or reviewed. The winner will be below.
Sins of the Father by Jamie Canosa – review
After: The Shock by Scott Nicholson – read
Rebirth of the Gangster by CJ Standal – review
Hood by Evan Pickering – review
Deadgirl: Ghostlight by B.C. Johnson – arc review
Mer-Charmer by Amy Bearce – arc review

Each of these books had some great qualities and some not so great qualities however the book that held my interest and won my heart in April was:

Sins of the Father by Jamie Canosa

Best of the Bunch Award for April!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romantic story with serious twists. Check out my review above.

Best of the Bunch: February

Best of the Bunch is a monthly blog hop hosted by A Cocoon of Books

BotB-logo

Best of the Bunch is a monthly blog hop at the end of each month, where we can share which books we have read or reviewed in that month, decide on our personal favourite and give that book our Best of the Bunch award.

In the month of February, I read 8 books and I reviewed 6. The Best of the Bunch award goes to Ripping Solace by Gabriela Aguilar.

This was a review request submission by the lovely indie author Gabriela Aguilar. It was so worth the read. It kept me riveted and when I did have to put it down, all I wanted to do was to settle into my chair and keep reading it.
If you did miss my review on it, here is the link for it Review.

And just for a little teaser:
1412-9, a number and not a name.
“The first digit is your post. The higher it is, the higher you rank. One means you are a front liner. The number after the hyphen is how many years you have been in service.” – 14

Later this week, I will also post my Spotlight Interview that I did with Ms. Aguilar. Stay tuned for that!
