HAPPY FRIDAY AND MERRY CHRISTMAS WEEKEND EVERYONE!!! I’ve got a big Christmas planned (big for me, considering I’m part of a big family this year!!) and we’ve go a bunch of cooking, and cookie making to do. 😀

- The Legacy of the Nine Realms series by Amelia Hutchins <— JOY LOVES THIS SERIES!!
Joy: Hi Maryse!! Merry Christmas!
I just finished reading books one through four of The Legacy of the Nine Realms series by Amelia Hutchins. As with many of her other books, I love the storyline and most of the characters. This author has perfected the craft of leaving her fans waiting for more, lol! It takes her forever and a day to put out the next book.
I thought the series was complete, but I was wrong and now Im suffering through the wait for the next book, Queen of Chaos. Can you please do a bit of sleuthing to find out then the next book will be released? Word on Goodreads was that December 1, 2022 was supposed to be the day, but alas (lol), nothing.
I also read that there will be an additional book titled King of Chaos.
- Monsters of Saint Mark’s by K.C. Cross <— JOY ALSO LOVES THIS ONE!
Joy: Oh, one last thing. J.A. Huss writes PNR as KC Cross. I am on the final book in her Monsters of Saint Mark’s Series. Its a great series! Julie Huss knows how to spin a tale, and this one does not disappoint. Its a fresh take on Greek Mythology. I listened to the audio book while reading it and fell in love with it!

Nancy: Amie Knight one of my favorite authors has a new Christmas 😀 novella released: THE FAKE HOLIDATE.
- One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker <— AIMEE ENJOYED THIS ONE!
Aimee: I just finished one tiny lie by K A Tucker was 4*! It was an angsty sort of a love triangle…😳 it was PG13 so if you don’t like a lot of sex in a romance then this was a good one.
Haley: One Tiny Lie by KA Tucker. On my goodness, when he tells her “You’re not a one night girl, Irish. You’re my forever girl. And I’m the one jealous. Extremely so.” I melt. I loved this book so much!
Feifei: I was sobbing in public after reading!

Aimee: I one clicked the audible version for the shadow beast shifters!!

Aimee: So I finished the first 3! I listened to it! The audible version was well worth the credit because it was a dual narration, love those type! I rated it 4* for the first and second book and 3* for the third only because I felt it was a little drawn out…. But it still was a good series!❤️
