December Wrap Up!

Salmon Leaves Blog Banner (3)

Hey everyone! So, I am back with a wrap up segment in this post for the month of December! In terms of reading, December was a great month where I caught up on my long TBR, especially the books I mentioned in my December Book Haul. Before I begin, I would like to mention that the wrap up segment will include only those books that I have not reviewed on my blog in the month of December and have not talked about in my December haul as well. So, without further ado let’s get started!

My Life as Kelsey by Victoria Anders

Nothing amusing about working at an amusement park for the summer–until Stone Maverick Avery walks in acting like he owns the place. Sure, he’s hot with his designer sunglasses and rock star attitude, but the last thing I need is a guy with an ego bigger than the state of North Carolina messing up my simple life plan: Do well in school. Get a scholarship to college. Don’t become a teen mom like my mother did.

Suddenly, my life takes a one-eighty, and I’m thrust out of my safe-haven into the world of private school, drunken parties, and catty girls. And for some reason, Stone is there at every turn. I try to push him away, but I stop to think, who am I fighting–him or me?

Can I still achieve my goals if I toss out my simple plan for heart-pounding kisses and a chance to live life to the fullest?
My name is Kelsey. And this is my life.

My life as Kelsey was way more than a simple teenage romance. It dealt with very relatable and gripping issues. I instantly fell in love with it!



Me and Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter 

Dreams come true in this hilarious, feel-good fairy tale about life, love, and dating literature’s most eligible bachelor!

After a string of disastrous dates, Emily Albright decides she’s had it with modern-day love and would much rather curl up with Pride and Prejudice and spend her time with Mr. Darcy, the dashing, honorable, and passionate hero of Jane Austen’s classic. So when her best friend suggests a wild week of margaritas and men in Mexico with the girls, Emily abruptly flees to England on a guided tour of Jane Austen country instead. Far from inspiring romance, the company aboard the bus consists of a gaggle of little old ladies and one single man, Spike Hargreaves, a foul-tempered journalist writing an article on why the fictional Mr. Darcy has earned the title of Man Most Women Would Love to Date.

The last thing Emily expects to find on her excursion is a broodingly handsome man striding across a field, his damp shirt clinging to his chest. But that’s exactly what happens when she comes face-to-face with none other than Mr. Darcy himself. Suddenly, every woman’s fantasy becomes one woman’s reality.

This Book was lovely! Not bad but not the greatest ever. It was a fun and fast paced read. Really enjoyed the whole supernatural effect and realization. This book, however, tried to portray one of my favorite character as a sham which I did nit like but it was not as bad as the fact that the author shattered the hopes of finding a man that you genuinely like.


Monday to Friday Man by Alice Peterson


With her heart broken, Gilly Brown finds herself alone in London with only her little dog Ruskin for company. It’s time to move on. On a friend’s advice, she looks for a lodger, a Monday to Friday one, and eventually finds just the right man – Jack Baker. But what exactly does Jack get up to at the weekends?

A fun fast paced romance with great plot twists! Really liked it!



The Raven and the Dove (The Raven and the Dove #1) by Kaitlyn Davis

Four fates collide in this avian-inspired, epic fantasy retelling of Tristan and Isolde perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Sabaa Tahir, and Leigh Bardugo!

A princess longing to be free…

On the dawn of her courtship trials, Princess Lyana Aethionus knows she should be focused on winning her perfect mate, yet her thoughts wander to the open sky waiting at the edge of her floating kingdom. One final adventure calls. Upon fleeing the palace, the last thing she expects to find is a raven prince locked in a death match with a dragon.

A bastard aching to belong…

Reviled son of a dead king, Rafe would do anything for his beloved half-brother, Prince Lysander Taetanus, including posing as him in the upcoming courtship trials. When a dragon interrupts their secret exchange, he orders his studious sibling to run. After suffering a fatal blow, Rafe is saved by a beautiful dove who possesses forbidden magic, just like him.

Fate brought them together, now destiny will tear them apart…

Unknown to the world above, on the foggy sea ten thousand feet below, a young king fights a forgotten war. He believes Lyana is the queen prophesied to save the world, and with the help of his favored spy, hidden deep in the highest ranks of the dove royal house, he will stop at nothing to have her.

I won’t go much into details for this one as there is a review scheduled already!
