December 12: Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017





Every Deadly Kiss was my favorite read of the year. This did not surprise me at all, as it is the latest book in my favorite series. I can't wait for the next one!

True to You was phenomenal and is now my favorite of Becky Wade's...which says a lot. :)

The Wonder of You - I have been loving the Christiansen Family series and pretty much all of the novels have been favorites. I have one more to read (plan on starting it soon) and I'm sure that will also be a favorite read of 2017.

On Love's Gentle Shore - a very good contemporary romance. I loved it.

Wild Montana Skies - another Susan May Warren novel. She just writes such good stories that it's rare for them not to make my "favorite" list.



Just a Kiss - The conclusion to a fav series and just a lovely read.

The Magnolia Story - I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. It was hilarious and very good.

A Noble Masquerade - So glad to have finally read this and I loved it.

Fatal Mistake - A suspenseful story that held my attention and I am looking forward to the next one.

Rescuing Finley - The first Dan Walsh book I've read and it was just as great as people say.

Twenty Questions #BookTag

This #BookTag originated from a Goodreads group (Readaholics) and once I read the questions I knew I had to do this one. Hope you enjoy reading this and please share your answers in a comment below. I'd love to read them!

The questions:
1. How many books is too many books in a book serie?
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
3. Hardcopy or paperback?
4. Favorite book?
5. Least favorite book?
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
8. A book you’re currently reading?
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
12. Favorite author?
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
16. A book you can always reread?
17. Can you read while hearing music?
18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
20. Who do you tag? (You can invite them to the group to do the tag)

My answers:

1. How many books is too many books in a book series?
I don't think there can be too many books in a series. As long as the stories don't become monotonous, I'll just want more and more. :)

2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I hate them if there is a long wait until the next book; but, if I have the next one on hand or it releases relatively soon after I finish...then I love them.

3. Hardcopy or paperback?
Paperback.

4. Favorite book?
What? I can't pick one. I'll just say my favorite series instead: Patrick Bowers Files by Steven James.

5. Least favorite book?
At the moment, I'd say A May Bride (A Year of Weddings) by Meg Moseley. I didn't like the romance or characters. I've read the book twice and both times did not enjoy it.

6. Love triangles, yes or no?
No. I like a romance where you know who should be together and you just have to wonder if it is going to happen or not.

7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
I think it was The Vanishings: Four Kids Face Earth's Last Days Together (Left Behind: The Kids #1) by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye. I knew when I started the book that I probably wouldn't finish, just because that storyline is not something I like to read.

8. A book you’re currently reading?
To Laugh Once More by Sherri Wilson Johnson.

9. Last book you recommended to someone?
I don't remember... :/

10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
*checks Goodreads shelf* 
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay.

12. Favorite author?
Steven James.

13. Buying books or borrowing books?

While I prefer buying, I don't have the cash for that. I'll choose borrowing because I can read more that way. :))

14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
 A Woman of Fortune (Texas Gold #1) by Kellie Coates Gilbert.

15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks!

16. A book you can always reread?
Corridor by Robin Parrish. I've lost track of how many times I've read this book.

17. Can you read while hearing music?
Yes. I can even read with a TV on in the background. 

18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
I think I prefer multiple POV.

19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I usually read a book over multiple days, although if I have the free time I *can* read a book in one sitting. ;)

20. Who do you tag? (You can invite them to the group to do the tag)
If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. :))
