What Deanna Read #77: June 2022

Y'all, I'm so behind on EVERYTHING. I'm barely making it by the skin of my teeth to get this video prepped in time for tomorrow and lordy, I'm SO TIRED. That said, I think it was a good reading month. I haven't counted, but I think it was pretty good. I read most days even when I was tired, but I did a lot of comfort and easy reading. Lots of short books.

Here's what I read for the month.

Not a huge month, but decent. A lot of short books though because that was all I could cope with. That said, there were some really awesome books.

Obviously, I binged Cassie Mint because she's become my comfort read. Whenever I get too tired or I'm stressed, her books make me feel good. I know what to expect, how she will make me feel, and I'm totally okay with that. Also, I went back and counted and I read 17 of her books this month. It's been a hell of a month and I needed a lot of comfort and warm fuzzies.

The Protector by Anna Hackett ends the Norcross Security series and it was amazing. Loved the introduction to the new Sentinel Security series and boy, I think I'm already obsessed with Killian Hawke.

As always, Ms Joyce always delivers, this time with The Blood of Promise with her usual trademark humor and sass, along with awesome characters. Her books make me feel good too so I think I'm going to need to get back to going through her backlist.

Finally, Bull by Deborah Bladon. A new to me author and an amazing book. There was a great twist at the end with the black moment I was not expecting. Awesome. I will be reading more of her.

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. How good was The Protector for the end of the series? What did you think of the epilogue?

      Also, wonder why Google has you listed as anonymous for this post?

    2. Loved The Protector and looking forward to Sentinel Security. Re anonymous, I forgot to change back after posting on another blog! One where I wanted to be anonymous. Lol

    3. Oh yes, definitely looking forward to Sentinel Security. Killian Hawke was so awesome in The Protector. I think I have a new Anna Hackett book boyfriend obsession.
