The Scene (Dylan Hart Series Book 1) by R.M. Gilmore

5-stars

The Scene (Dylan Hart Series Book 1) by R.M. Gilmore was exciting and intriguing. Dylan was on the hunt for why girls were showing up dead as if a vampire had killed them for her book. Little did she know that she would get pulled in and put herself on the killer’s radar. Her character was hilarious, witty, and smart. I loved her way of thinking and her frequent conversations with herself. I also loved bff Tatum. Those two were like two peas in a pod. It was amazing how in sync they were and how easily they worked together to find out information. I loved their shenanigans in this book. This was such an excellent read. I can’t wait to get started on the next book. I easily give it 5-stars.

Midnight in the House of Lang by Bree M. Lewandowski

5-Stars

Midnight in the House of Lang by Bree M. Lewandowski was an excellent dystopian romance. I loved the world building and how the author opens with an explanation of what changed the world. It set up the basic background for why everything reverted back to carriages and horseback for travel. I loved the main characters and their development. Thea matured greatly after the first attack on the palace. I felt that as the main character she was easy to relate to and visualize. Her brother Arthur irked me at times but he ultimately stepped up to take care of her and to fulfill his duties. This was an excellent read and I look forward to reading more from this author.

5-Stars

Endless Night (Dylan Hart Book 2) by R.M. Gilmore was exciting and fun. I loved this second book in this series. Dylan is absolutely wonderful. He character is my favorite and she never ceases to amaze me. I had to officially come to terms with Malcom and Tatum as an item in this book. I wondered if they would be a thing in this book at the end of book one. I liked Cyrus more in this novel than the first. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

Like the first book, this story was easy to follow and get lost in. It kept me interested and was full of interesting things. I highly recommend this book and the series. It’s an easy 5-star read.

Jake the Growling Dog Goes to Doggy Daycare (Jake the Growling Dog Book 2) by Samantha Shannon is an excellent children’s book. It has bright colorful art for young readers to look at. The storyline is fun and has an important lesson behind it. It has an easy flow and will easily keep young minds intrigued. At the end of the book is a list of different activities for mindfulness and imagination. I enjoyed doing them with my son. Jake is also an excellent main character. My son loves him. I see Jake as a young kid in dog form. I love this cute little book and I highly recommend it to parents. Easy 5-star children’s book.

Cade (Default Distraction #3) by A.S. Roberts

5-Stars

Cade (Default Distraction #3) by A.S. Roberts was an exciting romance. I absolutely love this series and the characters in them. This book takes place along the same time line as the first two books and I do not recommend reading it as a standalone. This book focuses on Winter and Cade. Both characters were written well in this novel and I loved the background provided. Winter was always a curious one to me in the first few books so I enjoyed getting to read her story. Cade is a hot and there was more to him than I originally thought. This storyline had a great flow and was organized well. Great read!

Serenade by TK Lawyer was a wonderful romance. I loved Kingsley and Eva. They were amazing characters with great development. I loved how Kingsley approached the situation with his mate and how he took his time getting to know her. Eva also had her own surprises but I loved how she let her true colors shine with him. She was a fascinating character and definitely my favorite. I loved the setting of this novel in Alaska as well as the inn. Such a wonderful read and I highly recommend it.
