Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: 12 Days Of Christmas ’19

Its the beginning of December, where we see Christmas lights everywhere and Christmas tunes every where we go and I just love this time of year. Its so cheerful and happy. And there is so much fun things to go and do so today I wanted to share some books that bring about some good “cheer”. I found this tag originally at Book Snacks. So for this book tag, I decided to choose books solely read in 2019!

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.

The Partridge Stood Alone In The Pear Tree. What Is Your Favourite Stand Alone?

This author writes the BEST stand a lones, they have so much depth and her westerns are packed with grit and all the feels type of romance. Logan’s Lady is a beautiful story ….guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.

This is a fabulous enemies to lovers story, implements a mafia romance with some fabulous sexual tension.

This was SUCH a fabulous “stranded together” story ….and makes a perfect winter read for the season.

ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TWO TURTLE DOVES.

Love Is In The Air! Who Is Your One True Pairing?

You can’t go wrong with Meghan March but this pairing I fell hard for, such a great connection these two had…..this author knows how to pen a couple you cheer for all the way through

There is nothing better than a Jeaniene Frost novel but in this one we get the most unexpected pairing I have ever read from this author. This is a couple that just wins your heart so completely

Does it get any better than Raphael and Elena? And this book BLEW my mind, so much packed in this book. But what we see in this couple is breathtaking because they become unified in a way they never have been before and its epic.

This is my favorite couple I have read from this author, I really loved seeing how much these two are so right for each other. There is such a equal focus on both the hero and heroine….and considering how this author focuses more on her heroines…it shocked me in a good way because I love seeing focus on both characters.

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: THREE FRENCH HENS.

In The Spirit Of Threes, What Is The Best Trilogy You Have Read?

This is one of the BEST trilogies I have read, not just this year, but of ALL time. Even though I really don’t normally go for menage relationships, this really worked for me and the magic that Sierra Simone writes is just beautiful.

ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FOUR CALLING BIRDS.

Since Series Usually Consist Of Four Or More Books, What Is Your Favourite Series?

There is something magical about this series and I really adored this series…..it is definitely at the top of favorites. Not only because I love the setting (Colorado….I love a good mountain setting since I live in the Rockies) but these were charming, entertaining, vibrant in emotion and sexy alpha males that aren’t jerks but real.

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.

One Ring To Rule Them All! Who Is Your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?

I would say the villain of this series, still don’t know for sure who it is since I haven’t read the last two books yet but boy such mystery and intrigue….love it.

ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SIX GEESE A LAYING.

Creation Is A Beautiful Thing. What Is Your Favourite World/World-Building?

I love the way Lynsay Sands has built her series in the Highlands and she does it so well…..plus in this book I loved the hero bathing in the waterfall and being kidnapped while naked. LOL

Such a edgy world this author creates and I was so hooked into this book here, but I have to say the world building is one of the best for Shifter romance I have ever read.

This book and this whole series really is FABULOUS but especially with the “gothic” like theme we have going on. Perfection.

I love a great fantasy world and Linda Kage did a great job with her first Fantasy.

ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SEVEN SWANS A SWIMMING.

Who Needs Seven Swans When All It Takes Is One Good Animal Sidekick? Who’s Your Favourite Animal Sidekick?

I honestly don’t think I have read a book this year where a “animal sidekick” made an impression ..so I am going to pass on this one.

ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: EIGHT MAIDS A MILKING.

Milk Is So 18th Century. Which Book Or Series Takes Beverages/Food To A Whole New Level?

Seriously….the PIE in this book makes you want to gobble up all kinds of pie….especially that Blueberry Pie…YUM!! So make sure to have pie on hand while reading or listening to this or any books from the series.

ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.

How About Your Favourite Leading Lad?

Rhenna Morgan does the BEST leads ever and I truly had a blast with this book here. Such a strong leader with courage and strength to do what is right no matter the risk to himself. LOVE IT

This book’s focus is the HERO and boy I LOVED it and I don’t care if that loses me the “feminist card” because I love my men just as much as my ladies. But seriously we see such growth in this hero and loved his story unfold.

I love a broody hero that has struggled and made mistakes and his focus is paramount in this book and really liked how Mia Hopkins implemented him in the story.

This hero is dreamy and sexy and I LOVED this book where we finally see him get his own story and see his talent, strength and fighting spirit….adored him in every way. There is something so dynamic how Singh’s heroes.

ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: ELEVEN PIPES PIPING.

What Is Your Favourite Book Or Bookish Thing With Musical Influence? (It Can Be About Music, Reference Music A Lot Etc.)

Where the meet cute happens is in the club here and so there is some great music that is put a focus on that I really loved.

Music is such a focus here as the heroine is taught to dance….and boy this dancing scene ….one of the most romantic scenes I have EVER read in romance. So dreamy. *sigh*

You could probably choose any book of this series and get the good rock n roll feel but this book its really paramount and truly LOVE how Ashley wrote these books. Definitely entertaining, fun and a bit outrageous…but its fiction so that is more than fine for me. 🙂

The hero is a band player and plays the drums and the “Meet Cute” in this book is where the heroine is at a bar with some friends and our hero is part of the band playing and INSTANT CHEMISTRY!!

ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING.

Drum Roll Please…What Is Your Favourite Read Of This Year?

 

What I adored most about this book is one….we get back to the Le Veq family and I adore their interactions….and two the history. I learned so much from this book and she really brought the New Orleans beginnings alive for the reader.

Such an adorable book, I fell in love really quickly with this pair and so many great elements placed in this book that shows the beauty of diversity not just in race, but gender, intellectual thought and emotion. So Bravo to Alyssa Cole.

I am in LOVE with Devney Perry, and this book was so real and vibrant and what a page turner as well.

THIS BOOK!!! I have SO Much love for, I can’t even tell you how much. I finally got to Naasir’s book and I might love him more than Raphael if you can believe that. He just has the MOST unique personality in this world.

Okay…first off this book WONT be for everyone because it is darker but it actually showcases something real that is affecting so many women in our country. I really love that this author implemented this to bring awareness to it. Gritty, Raw and REAL.

Does it get better than Christine Feehan? And I am adoring this family so much here. But this book was SO delicious.

If you need a sweet, charming romance check this book out….I couldn’t put this book down and adored every minute in reading this one here.

Kerrigan Byrne is queen in my book ……so much emotion she places into her story and this book was so full of fabulous things and I couldn’t get enough of it. I can’t wait to see what she delivers in this series.

So what were some of your favorite reads for the year? Feel free to follow along on this book tag….it was SUCH fun to do and I think I definitely will be doing it every year because I did it last year and I enjoyed doing this so much.
