As usual, I consumed a ton (ha!) of historical romance, but this was a great month for contemporary and paranormal romance, too. Mickey Chambers Shakes It Up by Charish Reid got a lot of love last year, and you can add my heart-eyes to the count. Jen Devon's sophomore outing, Right Where We Left Us, is a fantastic follow-up to Bend Towards the Sun and I need Mal and Frankie's story ASAP. (That was my 26th read. I finished it just before midnight on Jan. 31.) I've heard a lot about Heather Guerre, and after whipping through her BDSM office romance and two of her PNRs, I totally get why people rave. Between Guerre and my return to Kelley Armstrong's backlist, I kind of want to kick my own kinky and wolfy books under the bed to commune with the dust bunnies. I'm sure I'll get over my feelings of inadequacy with sufficient therapy.
And of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Silver Nitrate. She might just be my favorite author writing today, because I have yet to be disappointed. This latest gem made me want to constantly look up things about the Mexican film industry and Mexican horror films. I don't know about watching the films, because I'm a scaredy cat sometimes, but there's always the aforementioned therapy to help with that, right?
