Hello everybody! How are you all doing? I haven't posted in a couple of weeks and I suddenly got the urge, so I decided to finally do my December wrap up. So I read 18 fucking books! 18!! That is crazy for me. That is the most books I think I have ever read in a month but I had a goal to complete AND I MADE IT WOOOOT WOOOT!! But I won't rattle on about that, lets just jump into the good stuff!
Moonlight on Nightingale Way (On Dublin Street #6) by Samantha Young (4.5/5): I wasn't originally going to read this as I wasn't expecting to like it, but I LOVED IT. A great conclusion to a even better series.
Valentine (On Dublin Street #5.5) by Samantha Young (4/5): This was a cute little novella, and... yeah not much else to say about that.
Castle Hill (On Dublin Street #3.5) by Samantha Young (5/5): LOVED THIS. It followed 2 of my favourite characters from the series (Joss + Braden). Not much else to say about that one either :P
An On Dublin Street Christmas (On Dublin Street #1.1) by Samantha Young (4/5): Can you see a pattern?
An On Dublin Street Halloween (On Dublin Street #1.2) by Samantha Young (3/5): It wasn't terrible but I feel like a cheat even including it in the wrap up since it was literally 4 pages long. But yolo!
Hero by Samantha Young (4/5): I thoroughly enjoyed this freaking book. I could not put it down. I don't think it would be for everyone but it worked for me!
Bad Judgement by Meghan March (3/5): Not a huge fan of this one, mainly because of the romance part of it.
Being Brooke by Emma Hart (2/5): I really did NOT enjoy this book. Nearly everything pissed me off, and only the fact that I found certain aspects of it funny and the layout of the book actually allowed me to give it 2 stars. I wouldn't recommend this book AT ALL.
Beautiful by Christina Lauren (5/5): A really nice conclusion to a wonderful series, and I loved the two new characters and their relationship. A very quick, addicting read.
Confess by Colleen Hoover (4/5): This was a reread for me as I didn't enjoy it the first time and wanted to give it another go. I ended up really enjoying it the second time around. Not my favourite CoHo, but my opinion definitely changed.
*MONTHLY FAVOURITE*The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata (5/5): The book that ruined me for all other books! I swear to god the slow burn relationship in this story was so good that I just can't even with insta love anymore. LOVED IT. 10/10 would recommend!
Wait for It by Mariana Zapata (4/5): Wasn't a fan of the age gap in the relationship but again, a great slow burn relationship and a really engaging plot line.
Naughty Boss by Whitney G. (4/5): A really quick easy read (pretty sure it's a novella). I liked the characters a lot and the story was very entertaining (and sexy whoo!)
Checkmate: This is War by Kennedy Fox (1/5): Don't even get me fucking started on this book. I don't even want to talk about it. Lets just move along from this train wreck of a book.
Kulti by Mariana Zapata (4/5): Another age gap but less noticeable in this one. But again, SLOW BURN ROMANCES ARE THE SHIZ!! If it weren't for all the fucking Spanish with no translation in the story, I probably would have given it 5 stars.
The Hook Up (Game On #1) by Kristen Callihan (4/5): I can't remember this one, but I gave it 4/5 so I must have enjoyed it.
Rhythm, Chord and Malykhin by Mariana Zapata (4/5): I really liked this story and enjoyed it a lot. Not as good as her others and it was definitely more of a light hearted read.
Lingus by Mariana Zapata (4/5): Definitely my least favourite of her books, but still really enjoyable. The first bit took me a while to get into as I couldn't get over the fact it was a Twilight fanfic and all I could see were the similarities between it and Twilight. Definitely more on the funny side though.
Sorry I didn't include images of the books or links or anything, but 1. I read way too many for me to go get all the images right now and 2. I'm not sure anyone reads it anyway. But if you did, thank you for reading! Let me know what was your favourite book of December??

If anyone ever asks me for book recommendations, my go to is always to recommend the Beautiful Bastard series. So far, I've recommended this series to 3 people and they have all fallen in love with it as much as I did. I honestly believe that this series is one of the best New Adult romances I've read. It has such an amazing cast of characters, and there's honestly something in it for everyone (who enjoys romance books obviously).
My first encounter with this beautiful series was in 2013 when I picked up Beautiful Player on a whim. And let me tell you, I absolutely freaking loved it! Will and Hannah are just so adorable you can't help but love them! But honestly, all the books in this series have amazingly funny, witty, sexy, broody characters that really engage you and draw you into the wonderful world of beautiful bastards.
So if you are yet to read this beautiful series, I highly suggest you pick it up! Also something I wish were out when I first discovered the series is the bind up of the first three books! I think this bind up is a great idea, the only thing that would have made it better would have been including the novellas along with their stories. But not only can you read the first three novels, it's also useful for a number of other things e.g. weightlifting (it's quite hefty), a fan (floppy paperbacks make the best fans), paperweight (did I mention it's heavy?). Jokes aside, this series is amazing and you are honestly missing out if you haven't read it yet.
This bind up is now available in stores for AUD29.99! So if you haven't read them yet, I highly recommend you do!
**I was sent a copy of this product from Simon and Schuster. While this has influenced this post, it has in no way influenced my thoughts or opinions on the series or my recommendation of the product itself.
2016 was full of some wonderfully amazing books for me. Overall I read 100 novels, and for the most part I really enjoyed them! So deciding on just 10 of those was extremely difficult. But I did it! So I am excited to share with you the best 10 books I read in 2016. Which by the way, are all highly recommended by me! Oh and by the way, these aren't in any order because THAT is just way too difficult! It's like asking a mother who their favourite child is!
And there you have it folks! Please let me know what your favourites of 2016 were, I would love to hear them! Or were any of these your favourites? Also notice how there is only one YA novel on this list?? Yeah... might be talking about that sometime soon so keep an eye out!
