BookTubeAThon Day 1: Royal Games and the Book Domino Challenge

23:12:00 Jo Linsdell 0 Comments



Today is the first day of BookTubeAThon 2016, and I've jumped right on into the fun. I seriously couldn't wait for the challenges to start :)

Book Domino

The challenge for today was to build a book domino. For the first challenge I armed myself with some little helpers (my kids). The domino challenge is far from easy. The books just did not want to stay up long enough! We did it in the end though, and had fun trying :)

Book 1

My first book for BookTubeAThon is Royal Games by Sariah Wilson, which I started reading pretty much at midnight and finished it by the end of the day. As a lot of the book was read during the night I'm counting this one towards the Read after sunset part of the challenge.

I got a free copy of this book from Net Galley and it is my official first book read for BookTubeAThon 2016. What a way to begin the challenge! Hope the rest of my picks for this week are as good as this one was.

I'm giving it a 5 star rating. 

About the book:


Genesis Kelley didn’t just get her heart broken. The aspiring veterinarian had it crushed in front of millions of viewers on the dating reality show Marry Me. Now, just as she’s getting her life and dignity back together, her royal heartbreaker, Prince Rafael of Monterra, has landed in Frog Hollow, Iowa. And he’s renting out her aunt’s guest cottage.
Deceiving TV audiences for his brother’s sake cost Rafe the girl of his dreams. But he’s going to fix it, even if it means moving from his mountain-kingdom home to small-town Iowa. A prince doesn’t give up on his rightful princess—especially once he realizes Genesis is in deeper danger than she knows.
Between fixing her truck, whisking her off to Monterra for a whirlwind date, and charming the entire town, Rafe is thawing the ice around Genesis’s heart. Will it be enough to earn back her trust, protect her from her past—and sweep her into a real-life fairy tale?


I absolutely loved this book! Definitely a 5 star, and I will be checking out other books by this author in the future. I officially have a fictional crush on Rafe. Strong, defined characters. Well written. Had me rooting for Rafe and Genesis the whole way through, so much so that I almost forgot about the bad guy, them BAM! Highly recommend.
