What are you reading? Here are my #Christmasbooks #TBRList #AmReading

I can’t believe it’s a week to Christmas. Where has this year gone? On the other hand, I’m sure a lot of people will be glad to see the back of 2016. It’s taken its toll, hasn’t it? I’ll be honest. I’m looking forward to 2017. So many possibilities.

Anyway, one of the things I’m looking forward to between Christmas and New Year is some down time to read. I have so many books to read but here are a few I think you should check out too.

Let start with this one Christmas with His Best Friend by Doris O’Connor. Why do I want to read this? Because I’m a fan of Doris O’Connor’s books and it is a Christmas story, albeit a sizzling hot read, if you know what I mean. Doris writes erotica with heart. That’s all I’m going to say. *winks*

Next we take a trip across the pond and meet Olivia in the psychological women’s fiction In The Best Interest of the Child by Felicia Denise. This is not a full-on romance and deals with some serious issues, so I’m going to sandwich it between two lighter reads.

This leads me onto Test Drive by Ines Johnson. This is another smoking hot erotica and not really for the squeamish. if you like good girls gone bad stories, then by all means check this out. LOL

Now onto Avarice and Avarice Unforgiving by AC Melody. These are paranormal erotica and follow the same characters. I usually like to wait until all books about the same characters are out before reading, just because I hate cliff hangers. And there’s a third book in the series yet to come. SO I’m not quite sure I’m going to read this yet. But I’m including them here for anyone who doesn’t mind cliffhangers.

Let get back to some Christmasey books with A Very Essien Christmas by Kiru Taye. This is a catch up book featuring all the characters we love from the The Essien family as they prepare for Christmas this year. Ever wondered how Africans celebrate Christmas? Well, here’s your chance to find out. NOTE: to understand the characters better, you should check out the series. The first book Keeping Secrets is FREE to download.

And here’s one I have to read. Play With Me by Lea Bronsen. Why do I have to read this? It has RUBGY PLAYERS. Yes, I shouted those two words. I have a thing for rugby players. Huge men covered with mud piled in a scrum? Yes, please!!!!! LOL

Here’s another Christmasey one. Snowbound by Kim Golden. This is going to be my first read from this author and I’m looking forward to it.

One last one. Nicolas by Dianne Harstock. This takes the legend of Saint Nick/Krampus and gives it a twist. This is a dark story and perhaps not for everyone. But that’s the reason I want to read it.

So over to you. Tell me what you’re reading this festive season. I’d love to know. Feel free to add a link to your blog if you have a Christmas Reading List post.

    Thanks for including Avarice & A-Unforgiving in your list. I completely get the cliffhanger thing, I have never been a fan either and never thought I’d write them!

    I’m not sure if I’ll have any down time to read, but if I do, I’ll probably get to “Three Degrees of Darkness” by Courtney Lane and/or “Covet” by Amarie Avant.

    Great post! 🙂

      Thanks, AC.
      I suppose you might be doing more writing than reading. Whatever you’re doing, have a wonderful time this festive season.

      I’ve see Covet but will check out TDoD. 😘
