UPDATE 1/17

I guess I should make a reading list, because everyone knows to be successful at anything, one really needs to set goals (or at the very least, have a plan!)

Last night, I finished my first book, "War of the Heart" by new author Jenna Victoria.
The story takes place in a contemporary setting, and then, through time travel, the couple, Louise and George travel back to Great Britain during Christmas 1940. Great setting with WWII raging through the streets and everyone fearing for their lives and having to ration food and goods on a daily basis. What I loved most was the abundance of interesting little details about that time period, things I'd never known.
The book is Christian Romance, not a genre I've read before, but it was extremely well written and I really enjoyed it!
My rating:
I'll be back tomorrow, armed with my reading list goals!

#HS Readathon Wrap Up

Time to wrap up another Seasons of Reading readathon, and it's no surprise to me that I didn't manage to get even half way through my TBR. In fact, I deviated from it—a book I'd put on hold at the library came in.

Here's what I did read: Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna and the defection, God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo.

Her Best Laid Plans was a novella, a quick bit of satisfying romance with a heavy dollop of steam. I hadn't expected the story to be so sexual, though I should've, especially knowing McKenna's previous work—but the prior stuff I've read by this author were longer novels where sexual scenes felt more in balance with other themes in the story. In this case, because the story was so short, I wasn't mentally prepared for the depth of the steam that the story contained. Despite that, Cara McKenna knows her way around storytelling. Jamie is a cool, independent American young woman off on holiday and seeking adventure in Ireland whe…
