I messed up last week. The weather was so nice and I got sidetracked mainly by an incredible series I've been reading. This week marks spring break for my kiddos and they're already driving me crazy. We never do anything because my husband and I still have to work and I have always felt this week is just a waste even when I was in school as well. Our days will consist of walks, me writing, and breaking up arguments.
Now, onto the What Brooke Read section of this post.
It might not look like I read much this week, but I'm only showing the covers to the first book in the series I read. And those are Darkmore Penitentiary and Zodiac Academy by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti. These two authors have me in at somewhat of an obsession over their work and where I've been the majority of the month.
Let's start with the Darkmore Penitentiary books. They are a dark reverse harem which I've been craving lately and not a finished series with one big cliffy at the end of book three. You've been warned. I can't wait for the next book to come.
Next came Savage Hate by Amanda Richardson. Another dark reverse harem. I couldn't get into this book like I have with others, but it might be right up your alley.
Burned by Greta Rose West is a cowboy romance and set in Wyoming. Now, I have issues with books set in my home state and it was the same with this one. I guess I'm super picky, but maybe you'll like it.
Barnes and Noble
F*ck it by C.M. Owens and S.M. Shade was a bittersweet book and I'm sure you can guess why. It was a delight to read, fast, and a ton of fun even though I cried at the beginning.
Next came Wildfire by Chelle Bliss. I enjoy her books, but this one didn't quite hit the mark for me. I'm not sure what it was and still can't figure it out.
Barnes and Noble
Last, but certainly not least is the series I'm currently obsessing over and almost done with. I flove these books and there's still one more to come later this year. Zodiac Academy by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti is incredible even though the books are super long. I can't wait to see what happens.
And that's it, folks. I hope you find something great to read as well as have a wonderful week.
Fully in stock!
For the past couple of weekends, when I have the house to myself, I've been working in our hallway closet to get all copies of my books in order. We have a small house and I can only keep so many copies of my books in stock. I have one more arriving today. Thanks Zon for shipping my last order in seven separate packages when they came from the same place. My hope is to someday completely fill this shallow hall closet. Right now, below all my books is filled with two shelves of historical books.
Today is my birthday and I'm celebrating it by going to lunch with my best friend and having pizza with my family tonight as well as working away on one of my 2025 books. This story is shaping up to be something more than I originally thought it would.
I don't have much more to share with you today. I hope you have a wonderful week.
Outlander and writing
For the past two Sundays I've had the house all to myself. And what do I do with it? Watch the newest episode of Outlander and get some words down. I'm so excited for both. Watching how they have done the show is thrilling, even though I know exactly how it's going to come together. Book nerd power!
As for the book I'm working on, the story kind of came out of left field and shaping to be a pretty amazing one. Two weeks and I'm already 25k in!
I don't really want to give much away with this story, but I will say this story has something in it I have never done before.
Spring is well on its way here, allowing me to finally get back to daily walks.
That's about all I have to share with you today.
Have a great one.
I'm diving into a new story this week. Okay, actually I started it last week and already nearly 6k words in. This story started off as a plain idea and boy, has it evolved into something I never thought would come from me. I'm so damned excited about it!
It Just Comes Natural is out now and this will be the last week it'll be on sale for .99 cents. Also, there's a giveaway going on my Facebook page. Click the button above. It'll take you directly to the link.
It'll be open until the end of next weekend.
Spring is well on its way here which brings spring storms and warmth slowly taking over. We got snow this weekend and now have a cold spell taking hold of the land.
I hope your spring is well on the way.
Have a wonderful week.
