2023 Romance Favourites

Okay, so I started off well with not posting these too late and then I got distracted. So here is my favourite romance reads of 2023. It's only really been the last 2 years that I've started reading romance again and I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I obviously still love a good thriller though and you can see my 2023 favourite crime thrillers here

2023 Crime Thriller Favourites

It may still be slightly late but it's a hell of a lot earlier than my 2022 favourite books post. 2023 was a great reading year. I read 118 books. I've split my favourite reads this year so this is my top 12 crime thriller books and my favourite romance reads are here.  There are some from my trusty favourite authors but I also discovered some new favourites.

October 2023 Kindle Offers

Okay, this took me way longer than I planned but it's finally done. I thought I would do a roundup of the Kindle books that Amazon has on offer this month that I recommend. There are a couple in here that I either own and haven't read yet or that I plan on buying. There's a pretty good selection on offer this month which is why this post took me so damn long. There were some more that I see recommended all the time, so definitely go have a browse, but these are the ones that I've read or bought.

Dark Angel and Shadow Angel by D.K Hood Book Tour

This is a new series by D.K Hood. It’s a spin-off from the Kane & Alton series with new lead characters, as well as appearances from some characters we already know. The book is set in a small mining town, Rattlesnake Creek with ME Shane Wolfe and FBI agents Jo Wells & Ty Carter just a short helicopter ride away. Special Agent Beth Katz is an FBI agent with a big secret. She also happens to be a vigilante serial killer using her job to find any trash that needs taking out. She's been sent to Rattlesnake Creek to work with loner Dax Styles and it might be the best thing that's happened to her dark side.

2022 Favourite Books

 I kind of abandoned my blog in the last year but I thought I’d finally sit down and write something. Now I’m never on time with these posts but this may be the latest I have ever done a favourite books I read last year post. So in 2022, I read a grand total of 106 books. I think that is the most I’ve ever read and I really enjoyed it. I made a conscious decision to spend less time scrolling and more time reading and I got to read so many good books. I also mixed it up this year and started incorporating more romance into my reading pile. It makes a nice change from the grizzly murders I usually read. I obviously still love those too. It was definitely a struggle to narrow down my favourites so I opted for 6 crime/thrillers and 6 romance.

Non Gory Crime Thrillers

If you know me you know I love a good crime thriller. It makes up probably 90% of what I read. I'm always being asked for recommendations but I know that some people are put off because they don't want to read any gory details. Sometimes you just want the suspense and to be creeped out without reading grisly murder details. So I thought I'd put together a list of some of my favourite thrillers that don't feature the blood and guts.

Glisten Cosmetics Wet Liners

 As we all know by now, I adore a winged liner. And what's better than a beautiful wing? A colourful wing. Water activated cake liners are my newest addiciton and I will not stop until I have every colour. I have a review on Suva Beauty's offering but I recently discovered Glisten Cosmetics and I am a huge fan. I highly recommend following them on Instagram for so many cute looks and lots of graphic liner inspiration. If you scroll to the end of this post I've also added some photos of how I wear my eyeliner. 

Glisten Cosmetics is a UK based small business that specialises in these gorgeous water ativated liners but they also sell brushes, lashes, lip gloss, highlighter and an absolutely stunning chroma collection.
