Holiday Reading Recommendations!

First, Happy Chanukah. Second Merry Christmas. Third, Happy Everything and Anything Else.

I’m going to keep my message here short. I put together a list of almost 50 holiday themed book recommendations. The list may grow if anyone wants to comment with their own recommendations! I’ll add them in as I see them. Most of these are Christmas books/novellas/stories. There are a few Chanukah ones. There aren’t nearly as many Chanukah stories as Christmas ones. PLEASE tell me more if you know of them.

You’ll see a few have reviews linked with them. Those I have read/reviewed (obviously). Most of these are just on my radar and some made it to a holiday wishlist I made this year. They’re all linked to Amazon, so I’m sorry for those who need other store links. 99.99999% of all book links clicked on my blog is the Amazon link. We all know how they book world is.

And now that I’ve rambled on enough, here’s the list. I hope you find many great books to read!

Themed Book Recommendations: Romantic Comedies

It’s been a few week since I posted one of these. I’ve been trying to compile a few different recommendations lists and had to abandon some because I couldn’t fill them out enough. It’s a lot of work for one reader to do. No matter how diversely I’d like to think I read, I don’t read in as many different areas as I want to. Any help in the future would be great, whether it’s replying with recs on Twitter or Facebook, or messaging me through the blog with suggestions for themes and books.

This week, the theme is Romantic Comedies. We probably all know of a few. Probably enjoy them. We’ve probably laughed along with them each time. For the ones I’ve read, they’re always a good time and a good break from the heavier books I read. I hope that the books on this list can jump into your TBR to lighten up your reading.

Oh, and you’ll immediately notice this list is a little lopsided to a specific author. Well, she deserves all the mention, really. Tara Sivec has three Rom Com complete series out and I’ve read and loved all three. If you need proof, search the blog for my reviews of them (three books per series, plus a novella/story here and there).

I normally like to give equal attention to all on the list. It’s just hard to avoid that when Sivec is in the room. She’s a master of the genre. Plus, I haven’t read the other books…if you’d like me to be perfectly honest. Most are on my Kindle though. Most also come recommended by other readers. I can’t read everything I recommend 😉

Find something you might want to read? I hope so. Want to see another set of recommendations focused on a theme? Let me know what that theme is, and if you can help with some recs for it, include them in the message.

Happy reading!

Themed Book Recommendations: Shifter Romances

Time for another post full of book recommendations. The theme this time is shifter romances.

By now, you’ve probably seen my reviews of Lila Jean’s books. They’re really my first jump into the genre and since then I’ve been wanting to dive a little deeper. Since the book world is FULL of shifter romances, I decided to get the help of other readers to get recommendations of where to start. There’s a lot out there and I can’t weed through it all on my own.

So, here are some books I’ve discovered from searching the bestseller lists (I’ve read the first two, obviously) and others that fellow readers have suggested. While I can’t speak for many of them, I’m sure it’s a great list. Let’s explore shifter romances together! And as always, if you have recommendations of your own, feel free to comment.

Themed #Book Recommendations: @Chel_C_Cam’s F/F Book Picks

I haven’t had one of these recommendation posts in many months. I started out thinking it’d be a regular Sunday post, but as usual, I fail to have a post eventually.

Luckily, one of the themes I’ve wanted to touch on for awhile came up recently on Twitter and I was able to get recommendations for it. This is all help to author Chelsea M. Cameron. She’s an author you have probably seen on the blog in the past. This week, it’s a chance to see a different side of Chelsea. Instead of seeing her writing, you’ll get to see some of her reading habits.

The theme? F/F (or Female/Female) books. Books that have the main focus on a relationship between two women. You might remember two early rec posts on M/M books. One was from Christina Lee and the other Marcia Carrington. Since then, I’ve been looking for F/F books to further diversify my (and my readers’) reading. Sadly, it’s taken me this long to run into enough books for a list. They’re out there, but there’s not enough buzz around them. Not as much as I’d like to see. Not as much as Chelsea would like to see either. Let’s try and fix that! Help create buzz! Help create buzz for every single type of book out there! We need diversity, and we need it right away. So please, comment with your favorite books that should be on this list. I need a bigger TBR anyway (who doesn’t?)

And now that you’ve seen some of what Chelsea reads, go check her and her books out on:

Themed #Book Recommendations: #Hockey in Books

For this week’s recommendation’s list, I decided to keep with the sports theme. Last week was baseball. This week, in honor of the end of the season recently, I’m focusing on hockey books.

I recruited Kristalyn from The Sarcastic Palmtree because of her love of hockey and hockey-related books, as well as Sophia Henry (who has a hockey book, Delayed Penalty, of her own coming in September).

Don’t forget to comment with recommendations of your own if you have any, and to help choose the next theme if you can.

There are also MANY more books and authors to check out over on Diane’s Book Blog, when many hockey authors go together to have some Stanley Cup fun this year. Click HERE to look at all that.

Themed #Book Recommendations: #Baseball Books

I want to start a new, occasional, post series here to help readers find more books to read. It’ll be fairly simple. I’ll get recommendations together of books I’ve read or from other readers/authors and share them. They’ll be themed. Either broad theme or specific. Basically just trying to get more books in your hands and some more attention to books that may need more attention.

For this first recommendations post, I chose the theme of BASEBALL. We’re nearing the MLB All-Star break here in the US. Hockey season just ended (maybe next post will be hockey recs) and that means we can focus on America’s pastime.

There are a large amount of books on baseball out there. They cover many different genres. For this list, I asked a group I’m in over on Facebook for recommendations, and here’s what I came up with. They are mainly romance, but as I said, there are more out there…MANY more. Some are from readers, some from the authors themselves. Feel free to comment with recommendations of your own to help readers out!
