But we are rained in SOLID for the entire weekend and I’m having to walk in my “rain boots” (my boyfriend calls them “Muck Boots??” but let’s just call them “rain boots”) to do yard stuff on one side of my yard (it’s an inch or so deep right now in rain), and I am not in the mood for it. Okay okay… they are the cutest things ever (and teeny tiny and how could I resist choosing such a happy boot design for a rainy day? They’re ridiculous but everyone giggles when I have ’em on), but still. It’s squishy out.
PERSONAL MARYSE NOTE: I struggle with scenes of abuse BIG TIME (though I LOVE books about women on the run or starting over AFTER abuse, so in those instances, I can handle it). I don’t mind reading about obnoxiously bossy or possessive/jealous heroes, as long as they are ALSO protective and loving. Mental or physical (of any sort) abuse just kills it for me. I tend to DNF a lot of those depending on how “in your face” and upfront it is.
Sonia is looking for more books like this one! I don’t even know that I “know” gothic erotic romance. Though I think maybe one book I read many years ago (early indie days) was exactly that. About a painting… very popular author (back in our early indie days).
She’s in a mansion (I think she’s being painted?), and he is reclusive, obviously wealthy… and his dead wife haunts him. Or was it her? (internally? externally? I can’t remember 😉 OR I won’t say).
I *think* this is the very last “Best of 2021” list left that I just received, and it’s from my fellow Canadian, who’s one of our frequent contributors when it comes to recommendations. And let me say I am so thrilled to get her list! Ana too!
Ana: I can’t wait, when can we see Mony top books of 2021
I’ve included some of her fun past comments for some of her favorites below, as she was reading or recommending them 🙂
BUT FIRST!! A little look into her “slice of life” comments in 2021:
Some swoon-worthy romance (that had me giggling like mad at times), some thrillers, some really deep and heartfelt growth/love stories, some crazy twists that had my jaw drop. All of them… unforgettable! 😀
