  • Junk Journals
  • Napkins
  • Please no Religious items

๐Ÿ“š Favorite Books ๐Ÿ“š

Cynthia Eden:

Different world building! Just a nice mix of paranormal books with a bit of romantic suspense thrown in.

  • Bound by Blood Book One of Bound Series
  • The Wolf Within Book One of Purgatory Series
  • Bite the Dust Book One of Blood and Moonlight Series
  • The Devil in Disguise Book One of Bad Things Series
  • Protecting Piper Book One of Wilde Ways Series

Nalini Singh:

This is one of those authors that you find and are so happy that you did! The stories continue into each other so reading in order is recommended.

  • Slave to Sensation Book One of Psy-Changeling Series
  • Silver Silence Book One of the continuation series Psy-Changeling Trinity

Ilona Andrews:

I don't normally enjoy books that have the same character throughout; but Andrews changed my mind!

Seana Kelly:

This was a chance find that just hooked me in; ongoing! Book 4 just came out.

  • The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar Book One of Sam Quinn Series

M.J. Haag:

This was a shocker from the first book. At the height of Covid lockdown, these books sucked me in and made being shut inside fun. You can never go wrong with fae, zombies and finding love.

  • Demon Ember Book One of Resurrection Chronicles

Sandy Williams:

Another rare find, took me into a world of space travel and strength.

  • Shades of Treason Book One of Anomaly Series

Shannon Mayer:

I have seen a lot of these going around now; but getting older myself for some reason had me all in for trying it out and I am very glad that I did! Were Bigfoots, Witches, Fae, Incubus - I mean really with so much thrown in how could things not go wrong?

  • Midlife Bounty Hunter Book One of Forty Proof Series
