Books I'm Grateful I Read (4th - 14th Nov)


The topic for this month's hop is books I'm grateful I read but I'll admit I struggle with stuff like this... There are just so many books! 
But then I thought, why not share some books which kicked off a reading relationship with either a particular genre or author?
That's much easier! So, that's what I did. 
😊


Kiss of the Night was the book that introduced me not only to Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing but to paranormal romance in a way that I fell in love!
I became a voracious PNR reader because of this book.


This book kicked off a love of contemporary romance and chick-lit. Before reading The Nanny, I was more of a non-fiction reader and historical fiction reader. 
This book was also the spark that lit the romance-junkie fire in me.


I've long gone off Abbi Gline's books but it was Fallen Too Far that introduced me to the world of New Adult fiction. Once discovered, I feel into a NA/contemporary romance hole for about three years... 


I know the Sookie Stackhouse novels aren't really (or aren't traditional) Urban Fantasy - they're more cozy paranormal mysteries - but it was the Sookie Stackhouse books that shifted something in me and taught me to appreciate UF. It's because of Sookie Stackhouse that UF became one of my absolute reading loves. 
(P.S - I kinda miss this series.)
