Hey there, book mongers!
July has been a strange month. Though it feels like it’s sped by pretty fast it’s also felt slower than a snail. The month has been pretty productive, however. I’m stoked about that. Still, I wish I could’ve gotten a book tag in. That’s the only bummer. Oh well. August is coming and I have a few working ideas. So, we’ll see.
I hope that at this very moment you’re enjoying being off of work and relaxing while enjoying the last slice of sunshine of the day. For me, the fireflies are out and the last bits of light are creeping over my hill. It’s the best time of day. It’s why I like doing my wrap-up during sunset verging on twilight. It’s the end of the day and you can just enjoy it. So, while you enjoy it and are peeking through the things you may have missed today, take a scroll to catch up on any reviews you may have missed this month. Stay swanky, book humes. I’ll see you in August.

A Touch of Darkness
Author: Scarlet St. Clair
Persephone, barely a goddess, just wants to live her life. Hades throws that out of balance when he challenges her to create life in the Underworld. Unexpected tension and thrills are abound as they grow closer and her normal life becomes anything but.
Favorite Book The Month: Hands down, you can’t win this argument, A Touch of Darkness was outstanding and still pulls me into La La Land. Absolutely incredible. Great growth and stellar writing that doesn’t let you go. The intense relationship building between Persephone and Hades is intoxicating and delicious.
Least Favorite Book This Month: Beautiful Sacrifice. Here’s the catch. I enjoyed it. It was romanced adrenaline on crack and the drama was intense. It fell to my least favorite because of one of the main character’s actions and because there was just not enough backstory. A little more focus to the backstory and maybe it wouldn’t have made it here. Sometimes it’s important to know a little more to gain more understanding about the characters.
More to come soon…
