⊹ read an excerpt below ⊹
when he could take no more, he pulled her up and kissed her. the hard edge of her teeth pressed along the seam of his mouth, painful, almost cutting. she fell backward onto the bed, holding onto his arms and dragged him down on top of her. .
she’d done what she said: made him forget his exhaustion. about to explode, william entered her, thrusting, stroking. isabeau with her incredible sense of drama, j****d her head to the side and scooted away like a crab toward the pillows, dislodging him. “you know what i want.”
he panted above her, his arms bracketed her hips. “yes, i know what you’d like. i told you before we started i had no interest in playing games tonight. i’m tired. let’s be done with this.”
how dare she do this now, he swore to himself. if he were a different kind of man, a less refined man, he’d force her, roughly if necessary. he’d teach her how unsound it was to ignite a man’s baser desires then deny him satisfaction. after tonight, he'd find another lover and send her back to london or paris, the sooner, the better. “finish!”

My #cr is still #agentlemansguidetoviceandvirtue by @themackenzilee. i was reading on the beach for forever today because it’s so. good. (currently on page 382.) i literally ended up reading while i walked down the beach with my family; i’m sure i looked like an idiot, and i almost ran smack into a fishing pole. to make matters worse, i walked backwards when we walked home, because the wind kept blowing my hair so that i couldn’t read. and i have neck problems where looking down for too long is painful, so i was holding the book up in front of my face. 😂 #bookworm it’s just so cute and well written, and mostly i just love monty’s character. he’s so adorable and flawed and has such a distinct voice. •

also, is anyone else super amused by all this #soapgate stuff going on in the ya community today? 😂 check twitter if you don’t know what i mean. i can’t believe it’s blown up so big so quickly.

I used the libby app for the first time to listen to the journey of little charlie. i was anxious reading... well, listening... to this story because, little charlie needed to do something, and i wanted him to do it immediately. as a realist, i understand how difficult it is to be in such a situation as little charlie, at a young age. it's often easy to say what we would do as observers, but it takes courage to stand up for what is right. i'm a fan of how curtis blends the cultures of three distinct geographical areas--the south (south carolina), the north (detroit), and canada--into a coming-of-age story of empathy and bravery. @nowatnpl #historicalfiction #christopherpaulcurtis #mglit #librariansofinstagram #bookstagrammer #blacklibrariansrock #blackgirlswhoblog

my full review will be up on my blog tonight 🙌
four funerals and maybe a wedding by rhys bowen .
"georgie is finally able to plan for her wedding in the summer. it is going to be a summer of weddings: her mother is marrying max, her german beau; georgie's grandfather is marrying his next door neighbor, mrs. huggins; and darcy's father is getting up the courage to ask the princess to marry him. georgie is staying at the princess's london house when she receives a letter from one of her mother's former husbands, sir hubert anstruther. georgie is now his sole heir, and he's offering her the use of his lovely country house. he suggests she move in right away to keep an eye on the place because all might not be well since his butler died.
georgie talks this through with her husband-to-be, darcy, who is off to europe again, this time to berlin. they decide that she will take sir hubert up on his offer. however, when georgie arrives, it becomes clear that she is definitely not wanted in the house. strange things are happening, including a lively ghost and a less than friendly reception from the new butler. when a body shows up, georgie realizes that sir hubert's invitation may not have been entirely altruistic and begins to wonder if she'll even make it to her wedding day."
dont let this being book 12 throw you off. i had no issues jumping in and the author did a great job getting the reader in the know. .
this is one of those lighter and more fun mysteries. definitely one you can cozy up with! i loved the 1930s setting 😍
#jessicamapreviews - i give the a solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5!

Current status: utterly bereft in a way you only can be after writing the ‘true’ ending of a book. this is my third and hopefully final draft, and i’ve given this everything i’ve got, with both barrels. i’m not even beginning to worry if readers will like it - it feels like walking away from a wild party with all your most simultaneously terrible and brilliant friends. bit pretentious to say that maybe, but it’s how i feel. anyway, there is still work to be done and the family have gone away for a few days, so luckily there is someone here to keep me company 🐕 - a bit of self medication may be on the cards as well 🍷#authorsofinstagram #historicalfiction #amwriting #amwritingromance #cornishfiction #kernow #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #writersofinstagram #writerlife 🍷🍷🍷

The love letter is an enchanting split-time love story that follows two couples: jesse and chloe filming a movie in modern day hollywood and hamilton and esther deciding their allegiance on the verge of the american revolution. i loved the way the two stories intertwined in an unexpected way for a very satisfying ending. check out the link in my profile to read my full review.

thanks to @tlcbooktours for including in the tour for this beautiful book!
