What Deanna Read #47: December 2019

Happy New Year again!!! Seriously, when is it time to stop wishing people Happy New Year? After the first week or after the month of January? Well, I hope you had a good start of the year and you had a good reading month in December. How did you close out the year? I did pretty well and ended my reading for the year at 178 books in total. That was pretty awesome for me since I thought I was only going to read 25 books in the year when I set my goal.

Deanna year in books 2019

Here's what I read for the month.

Okay, this is a surprise. December was a much bigger reading month than I anticipated. January is starting slow for me!!

I decided to binge the Eon Warriors series this month by Anna Hackett. New favorite sci fi series. Man, those Eon Warriors are delicious!!! Fortunately, even with my glomming there's a new book out that's waiting for me. Yay!!

I discovered a love of omegaverse the way *I* want it written and Kathryn Moon totally delivered with Baby + the Late Night Howlers and I freaking loved it. It was exactly what I wanted from an omegaverse. Looking forward to more.

I also continued my daddy romance kick (daddy-lite. I can't handle the hard core stuff) and loved Yes Daddy and President Daddy by BB Hamel. Ms Hamel is rising fast as one of my favorite authors.

A really fun book I read was Saving Their Trainer by Nikki Dean. The reason I like it is because it's the book version of a popular Tumblr story that made its rounds on social media about a personal trainer who broke up with her boyfriend and the douche-canoe ex held her stuff hostage. The guys she trains go to rescue her stuff and the results are hilarious.

And finally, although I shouldn't mention it since the book is no longer in publication but I looked thorugh the black hole (it's bottomless) I call my Kindle library and found an old royal romance I hadn't read and devoured. Loved, loved, loved it. It's a Cinderella retelling plus royal romance. Two of my favorite tropes. It's The Prince and I by RS Lively. I tried looking but it's no longer for sale on Amazon. Sorry!!!

That's it from me. What did you read for this last month? Do leave a comment and let me know.

Stay tuned for Helen's books next.
