Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016 Wrap Up


From 29th-31st December 2016 I took part in the Holiday BookTubeAThon challenge. Here's a wrap up of what I read and what I thought about them.

Sweet Tricks by Maggie Dallen


Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016 Wrap Up
I picked this book for the first challenge "Read a book with your favourite colour on the cover". My favourite colour is blue so this was perfect. It was also a nice short, quick read, and therefore ideal for BookTubeAThon.

About the book:

Tabitha and her friends are ready for a change--they're fresh out of college and ready for a new start, which means saying goodbye to their bad habits when it comes to men. For Tabitha that means swearing off bad boys once and for all. But that's easier said than done when she finds herself sharing an apartment with Jack, the bad boy to end all bad boys. Jack has an annoying tendency to come to her rescue, make her laugh, and give her kisses that leave her begging for more. As if their instant attraction doesn't make staying away hard enough, why does her new bad boy have to be so good?

My rating: 3 stars. I'll be uploading a video review soon.

A Christmas Kiss by Susan Hatler


Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016 Wrap UpI got flexible with the second challenge "Read a book in a genre you discovered this year" and opted for a book by an author I discovered this year instead, as I already read a wide variety of genres and didn't really discover a new genre during 2016. 

During 2016 I read a lot of books by Susan Hatler. She is awesome at writing short romance. Anyway, she released a new book A Christmas Kiss just before the holidays. This is an addition to the Kissed by the Bay series. As I read several books from the series this year it seemed like the perfect choice.

About the book:


Harper Avery is a jaded divorce attorney who loves helping her clients move on to better things. After all, they’ve struggled enough being in an unhappy marriage. When one client’s soon-to-be ex-husband suddenly says he wants a second chance with his wife, Harper’s dubious, certain that her client is just going to get hurt again. 



Despite his career as a divorce attorney, Gabriel Hart still believes that love can work miracles. Sure, there are no guarantees, but he totally supports his client’s efforts to reconcile with his wife—even if it means Gabriel has to go head-to-head with Harper to keep her from ruining the couple’s chances. 

With the holidays approaching, husband and wife set out to see if they can work through their issues, while Harper decides to spend the long Christmas weekend at her friend’s cabin in Lake Tahoe. Only when she gets there, someone is already occupying her last-minute rental—Gabriel Hart. Both refuse to give up their holiday retreat. Will their adversarial working relationship make for a stressful weekend? Or will the magic of Christmas sprinkle them with a love that can beat the odds?


My rating: 4 stars. I'll be uploading a video review soon.

Jenna's Story by Skye Hegyes

Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016 Wrap Up
I was gifted a copy of this book by the author early this year and have been dying to read it, so it was an easy choice for the third challenge "Read a book your were gifted". 

About the book:

Jenna has many secrets; her father disappeared before she was born, her mother ignores her, her step-father abuses her, and the boy she's had a crush on for years doesn't know she exists. 

A school assignment may be the end of all her secrets though, including her biggest secret of all -- her ability to turn into a wolf. With her stress levels rising though a new ability rears it head to make her life much harder. 

She must learn to control her rising power because if she doesn't, she chances losing all her secrets and quite possibly her life.

My rating: Unfortunately I didn't get round to reading this one. It is high on my TBR list for 2017 though.

So I didn't finish reading all 3 books, but I did finish another of the books I had started before the challenge. I'll be uploading my review for Three Blonde Mice by Jane Heller (http://amzn.to/2iW90Ek) soon.

F.Y.I. If any of you want to send me an Amazon gift card this year so I can buy more books, I won't say no ;)
