What Deanna Read #95: March 2024

Hey, look at me, I've got this started early in the month. Let's hope I get it done early and uploaded without delay. Cross your fingers for me. That said, I don't think I read that many books in March. It was a busy month and I had crazy work deadlines, we went away for my birthday, and now I'm of the age where I need a holiday to recover from a holiday.

Here's what I read for the last month.

Exposed by Kaylea Cross

Well, I did read a little more in March than I did in February. Good stuff. That said, you should know that not included here are all the books I read for work as they are as yet unpublished, so they don't count. I only include published books in this list that I can track on Goodreads.

I finally decided to get stuck back into TS Joyce and dove into the Bears of Slaughter Mountain series. The first two books were awesome, of course. I forget how much I love Ms Joyce's writing. She does romance beautifully, and there's a certain understated humor in it which works for me and I find parts of her story hilarious.

I read an oldie by Jayne Ann Krentz, Eclipse Bay which kicks off a bunch of popular repeating characters, one of them being Arizona Snow. Thoroughly enjoyed this and will read the rest of the series soon.

Kissing Lessons by Cassie Mint was adorable. Super duper cute and it was just what I needed after my crazy work deadline got done and I needed something to help my brain wind down.

Am still loving the Fury Brothers series by Anna Hackett. Burn came out in March and I was really looking forward to Kavner's story. Ms Hackett did not disappoint. I loved his confidence.

Finally, I finished the last available audiobook in Kaylea Cross's Hostage Rescue Team series, Exposed. The series still has six more books to go, but those are not out in audio and from what I can tell, Ms Cross does not have plans to release them in audio. Sadness. This series was my go-to listen for while I was cooking.

That's it from me. What did you read lat month?

PS. I have made my list for my top 10 for 2023 (hey, that's progress!!), so that's coming soon. Soon...

    1. Oh wow, I had no idea that that particular JAK series was not available in the UK. I looked too. How odd.

      You had a huge month in March too. I think that's more than your usual number of reads.

    2. Yes I did very little else. Lol.
