➔➔ Kindle Unlimited Membership super-bargain deal!!!! <— Hey guess what??!! It’s been extended again through the month of June!!!
- Kissed by Moonlight: A Dark Academy Romance (The Cimmerian Cage Book 2) by Cate Corvin <— Tessa is 5-STAR LOVING this series:
Tessa: Finished Kissed by Moonlight (The Cimmerian Cage, #2) by Cate Corvin. It’s that book I mentioned last month? I think? that was so good, and so dark, despite the cover. Still was super good and super dark. It was late and I wanted to put it down to sleep, but couldn’t because my mind wouldn’t stop thinking about it. Up until 12:30 finishing it. 😀 Seriously, 5 stars.
Ironically I kept putting off reading it when it came out because it is so dark. *shrugs* The first bad thing you read in the first book is a student literally being dragged into a wall screaming by “helping hands”.
Then it gets creepier.
- The Trouble With You (Rixon Raiders Book 1) by L.A. Cotton <— RECENT RELEASE!! SHE FINDS HERSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF A FOOTBALL PRANK GONE WRONG!! “…One year of life in her football obsessed town. One year of nauseating school spirit. Just one more year of her cruel step-brother Jason; and his cocky, arrogant, football-playing friends. She hates them. Especially, Cameron Chase, the guy she thought was different...” OHHHHH sounds all sorts of fun! Plus, we’re having a giveaway on the blog for it. 😀

- Carry the World by Susan Fanetti <— Kathy P LOVED one of our recent favorites!
Kathy P: Carry the World by Susan Fanetti. Thanks to those here that recommended it. I devoured every word. Definitely 5 stars for me!
- Red, White & Royal Blue: A Novel by y Casey McQuiston <— M/M ROMANCE & Kathy P 5-STAR LOVED IT!!
Kathy P: Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. It was funny where I found my self laughing out loud, touching, and just so well written. It is a M/M romance about the president’s son (loved that the president was a woman in the book) and a prince in England. I debated about giving it to my teenage daughter as it is not very descriptive sexually (scenes fade to black) and she read it 3 times! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!! Hoping more books come out with some of the secondary characters in the book.
Michele G: I’m so glad to hear more people enjoying Red, White & Royal Blue! I loved it so much too!! I hope she writes more books with the secondary characters as well!!
