January Royal Picks + Giveaway!



We're starting a new post each month that will highlight our favorite reads -- Royal Picks!

As you may have noticed, any reviews that are Royal Picks will be labeled as such, with our stamp of approval on the cover. Then, the last Thursday of each month, I'll do a round-up post with all of our picks (both the ones reviewed and the ones that we simple read and gave a high rating to). 

The best part? Each month I'll offer TWO lucky winners their choice of one of our Royal Picks! Details below!

  1. I've bought Laura Griffin's Beyond Limits but haven't read it yet as I'm still reading another book. It's been a long time since the last Tracers book. Can't wait! :D

  4. They all look good! I need a week where all I do is read and nothing else. :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. YES! I loved that book, it was so, so close to being a Royal Pick for me, I should have put it up as an honorary mention.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Gah, I need a week or two like that. If you find the secret way to get it, let me know! lol

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  11. Tessa Dare, Say Yes to the Marquess.

    ReplyDelete
  12. This month all I did was reread :) I reread the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs and The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Both are 5+ reads for me :) Thanks for the fun post!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love this new idea. I've only read the Carolyn Brown out of all your choices (and it would have made my list too), but I've heard good things about all the others. Can't wait to see what makes the list next month.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I finally got to read Julie James' It Happened One Summer. As with all her books, it was amazing - funny, fast-paced with brilliant characters and witty banter. Loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I enjoyed ONCE UPON A TOWER by Eloisa James.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Rereads are always fun! Confession: I have not read either series, BUT they are on my list! Hm, might look into them on audio so I can "read" while walking the dogs next week . . .

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh -- must bump that up my list! I've only read one of her books so far (I know, I know!) but I very much enjoyed it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You can never go wrong with James. :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, I've heard nothing but good things about that one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks, Sophia! :) I know a few of next months picks already, but my lips are sealed until then. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but it has been Dirty Beautiful Rich (part 1) by Eva Devon. Yes, a serial, and not a finished one. However, the first part just grabbed me. IT WAS AWESOME! However, Eva is an awesome writer.

    ReplyDelete
  22. A serial! (gasp) :) Will definitely have to look into it then!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I know. So far, part 2 is going good too. Oh my, Damien is making me melt and he's just dark and mysterious.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You need to go to my review and read the quotes at least. This is amazing so far.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dark and mysterious? Sign me up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yay! I have a couple of these on my tbr pile and really enjoyed The Trouble with Texas Cowboys. That was my first by her and I'm so going to have to read more of her books. Yay for the new feature!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm reading Moonlight on My Mind by Jennifer McQuiston and loving it! (I just realized how little time for reading I've had this month. :-( ) I did read the Captivated by His Kiss anthology and really enjoyed it too. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. My top read is Raze from Tillie Cole.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Definitely bump it up, you won't be disappointed :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. My top read was Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis. I've been trying to catch up on her Animal Magnetism series since I've been focused on reading her Lucky Harbor series.

    ReplyDelete
  31. :) And it wouldn't be possible without your awesome graphic. Thanks again!


    I still need to read Carolyn Brown; everyone recommends her cowboys.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've only read McQuiston's first book, but I really enjoyed it. And I hear ya about the lack of reading time . . . .*sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooh, never heard of this one, must look it up!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Happy reading -- Shalvis is a great go-to author. My favorite of the Animal Magnetism series was Rumor Has It, but the others are really, really good as well!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You won't be sorry! It's a dark romance.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think my favorite is the first book. However, I do have a crush on Brady Miller. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  37. ;) I don't blame you! There was just something about the heroine in RHI, plus the tortured hero, that did me in. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I do enjoy a good dark romance (on occasion -- I have to balance it out with lighter reads or I go crazy). :)

  40. Another unknown that I must look up, thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Haha, I can relate to that :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Rumor Has It is my favorite too. I love how real Kate is, I think
    she and I would be great friends if she was a real person! :D And
    Griff....what can I say *sigh!*

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm glad I finally gave her a go. I've been totally lusting after her covers the last year. Hopefully will be able to snag in another one this year :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ooh, two recommendations for Raze -- I really must look into it then!

    ReplyDelete
  45. YES. That is all, just YES to both. :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. Me, too! I have read that book 3 times already! I LOVE Brady! And Lila is such a sweet & quirky heroine!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love Eva/Maire's historical romances. I won't read this serial until all parts are out, though.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yes, you definitely should!
