This was so hard to narrow down to just ten books 😅
But I posted this last year and I think maybe I should do an updated list because I’ve read so many other amazing books that have also made my top favourites since then. 
I’ll definitely have to expand it to more than ten 😂

Lizzy’s Book Recs
Tumblr media
After posting a little book recommendation a few weeks ago, I received a few comments about some more recs. And seeing as I am currently reading book 70 for the year, I thought it could be fun. So this is what this post is. These are all contemporary romances (I'm not a historical fiction fan) and will be either new adult or adult romance. Sorry, but I’m too old for young adult these days as teenagers piss me off.  
These will be placed into categories of my favourite tropes. 
Enemies to Lovers:
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. This has to be hands down the best enemies to lovers story I have ever read. This is about Lucy and Josh, both assistants at a publishing company. She’s happy, he’s grumpy. They are colleagues and enemies, they fight all the time. But the sexual tension is off the charts. The best slow burn book I’ve ever read and definitely worth the wait. (plus this is going to be a movie with Lucy Hale and Robbie Amell, perfect right?)
Vicious by LJ Shen. Baron (Vicious) Spencer is an asshole. He’s a rich, spoilt brat with one love. Emilia Leblanc. He wanted her when they were teenagers, but she was with his best friend. He is a bully, mean and a horrible person to her and forces her to leave the state when he doesn’t get what he wants. Years later, he needs her help. She begins to work for him and discovers the act he puts on to hide his true scars. This book is sexy and dark. Not a cute fluffy story. But a good read (just don’t take it too seriously)
Into The Wild by KA Tucker. A big-city girl from Toronto goes to Alaska to visit her sick dad she hasn’t seen in over 25 years. Calla runs into cocky bush pilot Jonah. He hates her spoilt brat personality, she can't stand his cocky attitude. Hate turns to like, and eventually. Love. This is one of the best books I’ve read this year. This story is sad, funny, sweet and romantic. And has the best banter ever. (plus there is a sequel) Eeek. 
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuisten. What happens when the prince of England and the first son of the USA have a secret gay love affair? This book, I love! They hate each other, then they become friends then they become lovers. The end. Perfect book. Just perfect. 
Hate They Neighbour by S.M Soto. Sexy bad boy jerk Roman gets a new neighbour with sweet Olivia. She wants to be his friend, he is nothing but mean to her. She is recovering from a broken heart, he is trying to keep his family together. This is HOT HOT HOT! This has one of the sexist scenes I’ve ever read in a while including a lollipop. Trust me, this is soo good. 
Friends to Lovers
Beard Science by Penny Reid. Jennifer is sick of being under her parent's thumb so she in lists the town’s evil genius, Cletus to help her and find her husband. I love this book, Jennifer is sweet. Cletus is not. He is brash and no-nonsense but I love him. Their love story is so sweet and turns from friends to lovers in such a sweet way it will have you awwing in no time. 
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren. This is another fav. While I love a bad boy, sometimes the good guys do finish first. This is a friend to lovers story. Quirky Hazel and newly single Josh decided to set each other up on dates. When they are a series of disasters one after the other, and a drunken night later. They end up in bed together and discover love was in front of them the whole time. This is a cute and heartwarming story. You can never go wrong with a book by Christina Lauren. 
Strangers to Lovers
Beard in Mind by Penny Reid. OMG! You can not get me to shut up about Penny Reid and her Winston series. It is the best series I have ever read. Every book is perfect. But this one here is my favourite of the series. This is a story about kind-hearted Beau Winston. He meets new mechanic at his garage Shelly Sullivan. She is bold, brash and has no filter. While Beau is used to women being charmed by his smile and good looks. Shelly is different. This book deals with some sensitive issues so if you get trigged by self-harm and real conversations about mental health. Stay clear. But this book is so good. Beau is the best book boyfriend ever. And I love him. (shoutout to Truth of Beard. Duane is Beau’s twin and his love story is so good)
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren. I know, I’ve got another Christina Lauren book on the list, but I just love them. And this book is one of their best! Mia and her friends go to Vegas after college. They get drunk, meet some handsome men and oopps, they get married. Mia wakes up married to sexy Frenchman Ansel. He invites her to Paris for the summer. And she accepts. After a horrible start, they begin to learn more about each other and fall for each other in the city of love. This book is so hot, and while Ansel may be the sweetest he has a dirty mouth and a few secrets in his closet. (This is part of a series involving Mia and her 2 other friends that also got married in Vegas. They are worth a read, but this one is my favourite)
Second Chance Romance
You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle. I wasn't sure where to put this one because it is a second chance romance and enemies to lovers. Anyway, this story is about Naomi and Nicholas. They are engaged but hate each other. Naomi wants to call off the engagement, the bad news is she can’t afford to fit the bill. So she tries to get Nicholas to end it instead. They are mean and horrible to each other, but as they spend more time together they soon begin to realise what they loved in the first place. When I first started this book I was in the belief that this couple should not be together. But by the end, all I wanted was them to be happy together. I loved this book, not as hot as the others. But worth a read. 
Workplace Romance
Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid. What a surprise, another Penny Reid Book on my list. This is the first book in the Knitting in the City series (which I am currently reading right now and am on book 3) This is the story of Janie. In one day she is fired, finds out her boyfriend cheated on her and is kicked out of her apartment. That same day she meets Quinn Sullivan. He escorts her out of the building only to run into her again a few weeks later and save her from being drugged at a club. He gets her new job and turns out to be the millionaire boss. This is a lovely story. Janie has to be the most quirky heroine I’ve ever read. And I love her. (There is also a sequel called Neanderthal marries human which is also good.)
This is just a shortlist of my favs, if you like this or want more recs. Let me know, this was so much fun.

Have you ever read a book that's so good that half the time you are paying attention to the book and the other half the time you're thinking to yourself Wow this is amazing or How is it possible to be so in love with a book? because that is all I've been thinking about while reading A Fate of Wrath and Flame.

I started A Fate of Wrath and Flame by K.A Tucker last night. I'll admit to dropping it the first time. I just couldn't vibe with the story. Probably because I'm a major mood reader, but holy cow! It's so intriguing.
It starts off in our world, but it turns out these characters are all from another world. That took me by surprise. 👀
So far, I like the MC. The other character, Sofie is tragic af. You know she's being manipulated, and has been done so for centuries.
There's also an element of Fates (similar to Caraval) and demons I'm trying to wrap my head around. Let's see how it goes!
Based on these quotes... Things are about to get very interesting.

I told myself I’ll just read for thirty mins ... an hour and forty minutes later. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I did this last night, and Monday night was worse.
Once I start reading again, I can’t stop. It’s nice to escape reality for a bit and stay off my phone/social media.

Books read in 2020: Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker
“But tonight, this is for you and me. It’s our moment.” He rests his chin on my head. “The first night of the rest of our lives.” 
I relax into him. “Does everyone know you’re such a romantic?” 
“Shut up.”

Wild at Heart (Simple Wild #2) by KA Tucker
“I need you in my life like I need to fly. Like I need this Alaskan air. More than I need this air.”
Blurb: Calla Fletcher returns to Toronto a different person, struggling to find direction and still very much in love with the rugged bush pilot she left behind. When Jonah arrives on her doorstep with a proposition she can’t dismiss, she takes the leap and rushes back to Alaska to begin their exciting future together. But Calla soon learns that even the best intentions can lead to broken promises, and that compromise comes with a hefty price—a log cabin in interior rural Alaska that feels as isolating as the western tundra. With Jonah gone more than he’s home, one neighbor who insists on transforming her into a true Alaskan, and another who seems more likely to shoot her than come to her aid, Calla grapples with forging her own path. In a world with roaming wildlife that has her constantly watching over her shoulder and harsh conditions that stretch far beyond the cold, dark, winter months, just stepping outside her front door can be daunting. This is not the future Calla had in mind, leaving her to fear that perhaps she is doomed to follow in her mother’s fleeing footsteps after all.
My Review: What a story full of growth and a strong romance! 
 I was more than delighted that the author chose to keep their relationship and love strong throughout the sequel. Yes they had their fights, but who are Calla and Jonah without their own opinions and passion?! The growth that not only their relationship took on, but more so the growth of Calla as an individual was my favourite thing about this story. I went from disliking to tolerating Calla in the first book - To loving the person she is becoming in this sequel. She’s stepped away from her familiar roots and she’s chosen the path of kindness, love and character development. But most of all, she’s chosen a brave path full of courage that I know will only make the love between her and Jonah shine more. They both bring out the best in each other and it’s the healthy love we all dream of having. I actually wouldn’t mind seeing a third sequel as I would love to see how Calla goes being a mother. Oh and I wouldn’t mind more Jonah of course. I actually preferred this sequel to the first (only by 0.5 of a star). 4.5 Stars! Read within 24 hours.

The Simple Wild & Wild at Heart
Tumblr media
Calla hasn’t seen or spoken to her father in well over a decade when she gets a call from Alaska that her father is sick and would like to see her. So, Calla sets out an adventure far from her city girl roots in the bush of Alaska. Where she meets the sweet Agnes and her daughter, Mabel. Where she gets to know her gentle and quiet father, Wren. And where she meets the tall, grouchy, Viking, yeti - Jonah. 
I had heard soooo much about these books that last week I broke down and bought them. And to be honest - I really struggled in the beginning with Calla. I found her vapid and silly and clueless. And then she wasn’t. She learned and grew and it was gorgeous. 
And to top it off The Simple Wild decided after having Calla grow and change and mature in many ways - was going to rip my heart out and have a good polka on top of it. I immediately dove into Wild at Heart to find out what happens. 
Prepare for tears and come with tissues! These should be read in order and read as a pair. They are not what you are looking for if you need some steam in your day. The love scenes are all fade to black but are sweet.

These are the 31 books I read last month!
I gave a 2.5 stars to “Passion & Venom” by Shanora Williams.  I think it said it all ...

- “Neighborly” by Katrina Jackson - “The Bloody Bride” by Bree Jackson - “The Kind Worth Killing” by Peter Swanson - “In The Middle Of Somewhere” by Roan Parrish - “Lord Holt Takes A Bride” by Vivienne Lorret - “Reste 2″ by Cassandra Augustin - “Hostile Illusions” by India R. Adams
I gave 4 stars to those ones:
- “Wild At Heart” by K.A. Tucker - “Deathless” by Anne Malcom - “Loving Mr Cane” by Shanora Williams - “Her Grave Secrets” by Kendra Elliot - “Gone To Her Grave” by Melinda Leigh - “The Coppersmith Farmhouse” (it was a little disappoitment for me) - “Bless Her Dead Heart”: I was scared to read it for a long time ... shame for me because if was good! - “The Body Of The Crime” by Jennifer Chase - “The Goal” by Elle Kennedy (not my favorite of the serie) - “Walking On Her Grave” by Melinda Leigh - “The Predator” by RuNyx - “Someday, Someday” by Emma Scott - Dead In Her Tracks” by Kendra Elliot
The 4.5 stars:
- “That Second Chance” by Meghan Quinn - “The Last Time I Lied” by Riley Sager: since I’m not a horror fan, his books were not for me even though I was very attracted to them.  Since this one seemed to be the less with horror, I tried to read and ... I LOVED it!!!  It was a more a thriller with some (little) “scary” parts but I get thought them without any problem ... And the ending ... OMG!!! - “The Chase” by Elle Kennedy
