    Dark Needs at Night's Edge is definitely a standout within the IAD series. The story is just SO different from all the rest. Top 3 from IAD for sure!

    I can only describe Dani Brown in one word: Perfection. I heard people say they enjoyed this one MUCH better than Chloe Brown, and I cannot agree more. I'm so ready to jump on the bandwagon and I'm so excited to hear what you think about Eve Brown when it comes out in March. Hope you have a safe and wonderful 2021! I have a personally random question for you. Would you rather only read contemporary romance books with the hate to love trope for the rest of your life or only read historical romances with the second chance at love trope for the rest of your life?

    Love love love!! Wolf song possibly is my number 1 this year, for all your reasons. Wolf Gone Wild wasn’t even on my radar – but it is now😂. Similar to you, it was a mix of historical romance and paranormal/fantasy romance that mostly rocked my world in 2020.

    💫 This list is so good. ❤️❤️ There are a few here that I still haven’t read and now I’m inspired to get cracking on them!

    I'm still new to historical romances so I looked up the Uptown series after you talked about the Prince of Broadway and I'm excited to start it! Again the Magic sounds great too!

    Green Creek is now one of my favourite book series of all time. I have no idea how T.J. Klune crafted his stories the way he did, but he's a genius and I love him for it.
    I need to read more Sarah MacLean next year.

    I love hearing you gush about these books! I'm definitely going to buy a few of the ones I haven't bought already! Wolf Gone Wild is high on my priority list. I need something fun!

    Random question: what percent of your 2020 reads were romance and what other genres do you read if any?

    Can Day Of Duchess be read on its own or do I need to read the first two books in the series? Thanks!!

    Again the Magic is one of my first historical romances and it will forever be in my top 10 favorite historical romances. The first time I read it I freaking balled 😭. My heart broke for McKenna when Aline told him to go away. I also loved the secondary romance in it with Aline’s sister, I thought it was so cute. I really wished that Lisa Kleypas could have had Aline and McKenna in the Wallflower Christmas novella, because I wanted more of their story and how they were years later

    Thank you for exploring the romance genre so thoroughly, I’m so tired of hearing the same recommendations over and over again. “From Blood and Ash” can only go so far

    Yesss! The first meeting in the Rakess was so cinematic!

  39. Is Bailey Reading?
