Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

When I saw the cover and read the synopsis for Going VintageI knew I had to read it. This is a young adult contemporary about a teenage girl who tries to live exactly as her grandmother did in 1962 during her junior year of high school. She sets up a list of goals and ditches her cell phone and computer. This was sweet, had depth, humor and a cute guy or two.

The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee by Carolyn Brown

Carolyn Brown is most known for her contemporary western romances and I was excited to try The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee her first venture into woman’s fiction. Brown delivered a humorous tale about four women living in Cadillac, Texas. This was a quick, quirky and enjoyable character driven tale about life in a small town renowned for growing the hottest jalapeños.

Take What You Want by Jeanette Grey

Recently I have been enjoying new adult contemporary romances and jumped at the chance to review Take What You Want by Jeanette Grey. She offered a delightful tale about anonymity. A chance to be the brave, confident person you have always dreamed you were and the result that happens. This was a fast paced, smexy read that I consumed on a cold Sunday afternoon and one I would recommend.

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

I picked up Wallbanger after a few bloggers I adore recommended it and decided foolishly to read just a few chapters on Tuesday evening around 11:30 pm. I downloaded this onto my Smartphone, snuggled in next to my hubby and began to read. As he snored I laughed, giggled into my pillow, and read chapter after chapter with a smile on my face. When I finally set this down it was 2:19 am and I had literally consumed the whole thing. Clayton delivered fleshed out, lovable characters and some of the funniest moments. It was smexy, silly, endearing and I abso-friggin-lute-ly loved it!!!

Ever After by Kim Harrison

After reading two heartbreaking, tear evoking contemporary novels I was eager to step into the Ever After for a bit of fun, adventure and chaos. As the eleventh book in the Hollows series, Rachel Morgan, Ivy, Jenks, Trent and Al all kind of feel like family and I was excited to see what kind of mess Rachel would find herself in this time. The day-walking demon took me by surprise and this is perhaps one of my favorite books in the series to date.

Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson

As a young child I read the Grimm’s fairy tales and they are so much darker then the versions most of our children read today. I was terrified of Bluebeard and slept with a nightlight. This was quite embarrassing for a ten year old and I remember claiming to simply have fallen asleep while reading. I love retellings and when I saw Strands of Bronze and Gold, I knew I had to revisit this dark tale. Nickerson did a lovely job and Monsieur de Cressac personified Bluebeard and made me shiver.
