Bethany’s Year in Books! 2016

Hello! It’s the end of 2016 and I thought I’d share a wrap up of the books I read and the BIG STANDOUTS of the year. Below are some of my Goodreads stats. I ended up finishing 158 books which surpassed my goal of 125. I am surprised Fearless was my longest book read. I thought for sure it would have been Empire of Storms.    FAVORITE SERIES 2016 seemed to be the year of series for me. I read some amazing and epic series. Here are some of the standouts. I definitely recommend all of these. It is just so much fun to binge read a series from start to finish. (CLICK ON THE PICS FOR MORE INFO ON EACH SERIES)   FAVORITE REREAD I rarely reread books.

Blog Tour: After We Fall by Melanie Harlow

Blog Tour: After We Fall by Melanie Harlow

by Melanie Harlow on November 28, 2016 Buy on Amazon Goodreads Genres: Contemporary, Romance Jack Valentini isn’t my type. Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave. Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so. But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles. His huge, hard muscles. Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop. And the more […]
