As most of the country enters into another lock down many of us are homebound for an extended period of time. Being at home can become redundant with our My List Netflix movie choices slowly dwindling. Personally I stay busy sewing and blogging but even that can become repetitive. So sometimes it’s great to set the phone on silent, grab a hot cocoa and cuddle up with a great book. Here are 3 books I’m either currently reading or have sitting in my Amazon cart.

1. Sucker Punch: An Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Novel by Laurell K. Hamilton
I’m a massive fan of the Anita Blake series. I was introduced through my cousin with her copy of Skin Trade which is the 16th book in 26 book series. I was immediately hooked! From there I started from book 1 and am now on book 20 but jumped to 26 so I could read the newest release. I’m an OG Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan so reading about a vampire slayer that dates the head vampire of the city, excels at her bad-ass job (making those quiver in her presence) and has an array of lovers on deck was right up my ally.
Though, I will say I stopped reading the series for about a year due to the storyline becoming dragged out. I got really sick and tired of Anita’s 40 page ardeur episodes so I just recently picked the story back up. Nonetheless I still adore Anita and am waiting for a Midnight Sun-esqe viewpoint novel for Jean Claude. He’s a massively interesting character that I eagerly anticipate him in every book: his story needs telling!
2. If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha
As I was searching Amazon for a new book to read I stumbled on this one that seemed quite interesting. The story revolves around 4 women in Seoul dealing with the aches of life. The story seems to have a Korean Sex and the City vibe so I’m totally here for it. I also find it interesting that they through a Kpop storyline. Has anyone read this one before? Let me know if this one is a must read.
3. Shine by Jessica Jung
And finally we have Shine! This one definitely had people stirring when it was announced. I think it’s interesting to hear this story from an actual Kpop artist because regardless if the story is fiction, it’ll be have actual real experiences weaved in. It’s described as a Crazy Rich Asians meets Gossip Girl so I’m eager to check this one out. I will add it to my Christmas list!
