What Deanna Read #58: November 2020

Hello and happy December!!! Can you believe it? 2020 is almost over. I want to say that 2021 will be better but I think at least early on (not to be a Debbie Downer) it's going to be pretty much the same as 2020 at least until a vaccine is available. On the positive side, it looks like a vaccine is on the near horizon.

Not that it affects you at all, Amazon has changed their links to book cover images. This presents a real problem for me since I link to their images for the bloggity. Now I'm wondering what's the best thing to do for images for book covers and I'm not sure what to do because the best option which I can control myself is A LOT of work. Decisions, decisions.

That's it from me. I hope everyone is well. My thoughts are with you all. Stay safe.

Here's what I read for the month.

Do you know what's really hard when one has read as many books as I have for the month? Trying to remember all the stand out books and what it was about them I loved. I'm going to give it my best shot.

One thing I've been big into this month has been the Christmas stories. I loved Garnish With A Candy Cane by Nikki Belaire. A Christmas story with a slight mafia twist. Lots of fun. And two other warm and cozy Christmas stories were Snow Place Like Home by Olivia T Turner and The Snuggle Is Real by Frankie Love. They are exactly what I wanted for a Christmas read. Sweet, comforting, and oozing with Christmas goodness.

One story I adored was Three More Shots by Nikki Belaire. It's magnificent. Ainsley, Corrine's little girl stole the show here. Ms Belaire did such a wonderful job depicting her. I'm totally gaga over Steele and how swoonworthy he is.

Another bittersweet moment this month with the end of yet another favorite series. The Team 52 series comes to a close with Mission: Her Justice by Anna Hackett. What a ride! It's such a tense story filled with action and passion. I loved every minute of it.

And finally, T S Joyce continues to wow me with Steal Her Heart and Dead Of Winter. Every book I've read by Ms Joyce has been a winner. Her books have fantastic plot, great character development, and plenty of sexiness.

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

Stay tuned for what Helen read too.

  1. Wow. You did have a good month. Even better if you add in the individual stories in the box sets to the total.

    1. Gill, looks like you had a fantastic month too. I am enjoying shorter books too recently. My concentration isn't up to scratch. I keep getting distracted with other shiny things while I'm reading.

    2. I've got so much in my tbr pile , I'm glad most of them are shorter reads. I've a few longer ones in the pipeline. Nora Roberts latest, and Sara Paretsky

    3. My TBR is huge. I'm way behind on Nalini Singh. I have her contemporaries, her new Psy Changelings, her new thriller, and of course, the new Guild Hunter that's just come out to read. I need to really jump into those soon.

  2. Hi Deanna

    WOW that is a lot of books woohoo, it must feel very good to get into that massive TBR pile, and great that you are really enjoying them as well, I had a good month as well and am loving it

    Have Fun


    1. I've been reading a lot lately. Trying to decide if I want to slow down a bit or keep plowing ahead.
