November 2017 Wrap Up + Top Pick

Hello everyone and Happy December!

I am so excited guys because Christmas is almost here and that means more time to read! Or not! I have a small trip planned for the holidays and I can’t wait to go. But now leaving that aside, let’s talk books! Another month has ended and it’s that time to talk about my favorite read of last month and making a wrap up of all the books I’ve read this past November.

It looks like I read the same amount of books as last month but, as you know if you read my past Wrap Up, I decided to change my amount of books in my Goodreads challenge and I am almost done (only two books more and it will be finished, YAY!). I hope you all had a fantastic November. Now..

Let’s get on to November’s Top Pick and Wrap Up!


Top Pick

My November 2017 TOP PICK is.. BAD AT LOVE by Karina Halle!
(Standalone)

36602086

She’s bad at love, but he’s even worse…

Marina is hot, blonde, and wickedly smart, but when it comes to men? She’s hopeless. Between her quirks and her lack of filter, there isn’t a man in Los Angeles that will stick around after the third date.

Her handsome, charming friend Lazarus has the opposite problem. Everyone wants to be the sexy Brit’s girlfriend, but he gets bored and moves on quickly.

There’s only one way to figure out why neither of them has cracked this love thing– they’ll date each other. On paper, it’s the perfect experiment. But in reality, things between Marina and Laz get complicated quickly.

They might be bad at love, but they are even worse at being friends.


Okay, I am IN LOVE! Yes, Bad at Love is just that good! Let me just say it: this is now on my top favorite novels by Karina Halle. There, I’ve said it.

4.5 stars for THIRTY DAY BOYFRIEND by Whitney G.!

This year Whitney is killing it with all her releases and I have to say that Thirty Day Boyfriend is my absolute favorite of 2017. I really enjoyed the premise of this story and the wonderful characters that are in it. Nicholas and Emily have a smoking hot chemistry and they are definitely on my top favorite couples by Whitney G. and that says a lot!

5 stars for FOLLOW by Tessa Bailey!

HOLY. MOTHER. OF. GOD. THIS. FUCKING. BOOK. This the filthiest book I’ve ever read by Tessa Bailey and that is saying something! Follow has just become my top favorite novel by Tessa (and it’s very hard to say this when I absolutely love everything she writes..). Get ready ladies because you must be very prepared to meet the dirty hero that is Will Caruso. Tessa Bailey has far exceeded herself with this outstanding release.

4.5 stars for AN EX FOR CHRISTMAS by Lauren Layne!

And again, Lauren Layne delivers another heart-warming love story! Winter is here and Christmas is around the corner so what better way to start getting into the Christmas mood than a friends to lovers love story by one of my favorite authors! Mark and Kelly are great together and their happy ending will melt your heart.

5 stars for COMPLICATED by Kristen Ashley!

I waited for this novel to release in eBook format and now I can say it was worth the wait! This book reminds me so much of Kristen’s Burg series: it has a great storyline, a list of outstanding characters, lots of chemistry, drama and suspense. Hixon and Greta and the whole Drake family made me melt all over with this amazing story and I do hope we get more stories with these characters!

4 stars for SWITCH by Adriana Locke!

I am always in the mood for a dose of Landry! I mean.. who does not enjoy a good office romance? 😉 Graham Landry surely did not dissapoint on the hero department and Mallory was just as good as heroine. I really enjoyed this office romance, the chemistry between the couple and getting to know more the Landry family!

5 stars for BAD HABIT by Charleigh Rose!

So, after reading Bad Habit I can assure you all that I am hooked and I want more! It was an amazing love story to read. As I said, it has great characters, an entertaining and darkish storyline and a couple with crazy chemistry! You all know how much I love having a little bit of everything in my romance and Bad Habit did not disappoint me AT ALL!

3.5 stars for DANGEROUS by R.G. Alexander!

I always go back to series I enjoyed in the past when I don’t know what to read next and I definitely enjoyed the Finn Factor‘s books before. Brady and Ken are HOT AF (all R.G. Alexander’s I’ve read are!) but I felt like missing a stronger connection with these couple. Still, Dangerous was a quick entertaining, very sexy and suspenseful story that I enjoyed!

4.5 stars for ALL I WANT by J. Daniels!

I am addicted to J. Daniels! I really enjoyed the first book but I do have to say: Luke and Tessa have stolen my heart completely with this angsty love story. I am in love with the relationship these two have! I love a couple that can make me laugh, cry, swoon and melt all over and these two did everything for me. I am so happy they get their happily ever after!

And that is all for this last month, bookies! I hope you are having a great start to this new month and that you are finding some amazing reads within all of these ones! Also I hope you have very happy holidays! Feel free to tell me your favorites or any recommendations down in the comments!!

Happy reading!
