Series To Complete in 2017

Hi my loves

It's my goal to read more books from my shelves this year than from any other source *I'm trying not to purchase but it isn't always working**.  With that goal in mind, I'm looking at the following series that need to be checked off the TBR Pile soon.

Thunder Roads series by Katie McGarry.  I'm kinda scared to catch up because I see nothing listed as coming soon and I'm terrified of having no more awesome books from Katie on my shelves, but I kinda also want to dive back into the world and explore.

The Submissive Series by Tara Sue Me.  I thought this series was a trilogy and that it was done, however they have added on quite a few new books and I desperately need to catch up. I mean since I own them all and everything...

Nettle King by Katherine Harbour.  I raved about this series once I heard about Thorn Jack even before I actually read it.  It was my must get book at BEA a few years ago and I was so damn glad I did get it because it was awesome and totally worth my hype.  I haven't heard anything about new books coming out and I'm terrified to finish this and have nothing else left to read by Katherine, but I need to read the rest like now.

Julie Garwood's Buchanan-Renard crime fighting romantic suspense series.  I have read from book18 forward and I'm current with the most recent book being in my shopping cart, but I want to read books 1-18 especially because I have most of them on my shelves so  yeah about that...

Simone Elkeles's Perfect Chemistry Series.  Read the first book, started the second and moved onto another read and forgot to come back to this.  I wanted to be in the mood for young adult and now that it's spring I will definitely be enjoying this one.

Wicked Lovers series by Shayla Black,  I have most of these books stacked on my shelves.  I have read the erotica stories featuring my favorite kinds of romance Polyamory/multiple partners and kinda skipped the "normal" ones.  But I want to catch up and be able to pick up that latest ones but I made myself a bargain that I have to finish the ones I own first.

This next one is going to shock you because I've said I was going to finish this about a year maybe two ago and yet still...  Rogue by Gina Damico.  I'm all about hanging on to series for as long as possible.  I don't want this to end but at the same time I want to learn everything that is happening in the story and I want to know how it ends.  Good Gods what a quandary.

And of course my two perpetual reading authors that I need to catch up on are In Death series by JD Robb and The Game series by Christine Feehan.

What about y'all?? Any series you're trying to complete this year?? Share in the comments down below if you have read these or if they are on your lists so that we can have a discussion about them.

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

2017 Sexual Assault Awareness Month TBR

Hi my loves,

We are still on the topic of April being sexual assault awareness month and I wanted to pick these books up and share with you my journey through them.  I got most of my list from The Teen Librarian Toolbox's list of books about Consent, Sex and our teens.

These are the books from my shelves dealing with this month's awareness topic: Sexual Assault and Consent.

I have read a few from the list over the years and you can find the links here:


  • Easy Tamara Webber
  • Live Through This Mindi Scott
  • One Weekend Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy
  • Wait For You by J Lynn
  • Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

  • And these are the ones on my shelves that I want to get read for the month:

    • The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
    • What happens next by Colleen Clayton
    • What we saw by Aaron Hatlzer
    • Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
    • A Deep Dark Secret by Kimberla Lawson Roby
    • A Natural History of Rape by Randy Thornhill and Craig T. Palmer  ** This wasn't recommended but I recently picked it up at the local library book sale right before the month started and thought this is perfect.**

    That's it, those are the books on my radar for this topic and these are the ones I own, there are plenty more out there and if you have read any please feel free to share in the comments down below and we can talk about them.  Thanks so much for stopping by and

    Have a great reading week
