LAST YEAR I WAS READING…(December 2, 2020)

This meme was created by Reading Marie. It’s a great meme because it’s nice and easy to do.

Here are the rules:

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to

This Year I Am Reading…

I expected to feel a lot of things – fear, disgust, guilt.
I didn’t expect to feel turned on.
And I didn’t expect my contracted killer to look quite so pretty with blood on his hands.

A unique set-up where sanctioned killings of serial killers by psycho killers called Handlers are done under the watchful eye of Witnesses. Quite possibly THE dark romance series of the year from the looks of that blurb and the first few chapters I’m in.

Last Year I Was Reading…

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

I say this about Prophesy, it could have been the shifter-vampire book of my dreams. But alas, there was nothing much happening and the titular prophecy hardly even came into play. Happily, the sequel was a little better.

My 2.5-star review here.

We have two very different books today.

Handled is a dark romance that has, for me, a slightly dystopian vibe of sorts. This has a lot of trigger warnings that should be heeded. There is a huge BDSM element here. Gray is a psychopath who gets off at pain inflicted upon him or by him. His character was the main draw for me. I can’t wait to see what he does with his pretty boy, Nathan.

Prophesy is a paranomal vampire-shifter romance story that gave too much focus on the mating rituals. Still, I was rooting for both Wick and Justice. They started off as enemies but gradually came to terms with the fact that they’re fated to each other. After that, it was all sweet and fluffy. Sadly, that’s all there is.

Hands down, it’s Gray and Nathan all the way.

I’m ending the post with a book I’m looking forward to reading.

Fifteen years ago, my world crumbled. Charlie Bingham saved my life, and now from beyond the grave the bastard is making me do the one thing I swore I would never do.

Go home.

Carson is my favorite character in the Pros & Cons series right from the get go. I love all of Charlie’s boys but he was the quietest, intentionally nondescript character and therefore the most intriguing of them all. There was a ridiculous amount of pining done for his book. So much so that I messaged A.E. Wasp on GR about how much I was looking forward to his story. We were teased about its releases middle or so of the year and I think it has been pushed back for several months. Finally!!!! It’s here!!!

What were you reading this time last year?

(I hope it’s as riveting as Morticia’s book)
