7 Books I Started Reading This Month

by - November 17, 2021


I've been finding less and less time to read as we get closer to the end of this year. And, honestly, when I do have time to read, I find myself staring at all the books in my TBR and not being able to commit to any of them. The other night I read the first chapter of at least five books and didn't pick a single one!

That said, I have made it past the first chapter of seven books, although one of them I decided to quit halfway through. I still included it on this list, though, because it did occupy several days of my reading time.

So, here are the seven books I started reading this month.


The Ice Swan
by J'Nell Ciesielski

Princess Svetlana Dalsky flees the Russian Revolution, seeking safety in Paris with her mother and sister. But the City of Light is suffering the effects of World War I, and the Bolsheviks are hunting all Russian aristocrats. Svetlana and her family are forced into hiding, but a chance meeting with an army surgeon will change the course of their futures.


The Harlequin Crew series
Author: Caroline Peckham, Susanne Valenti

I've read the first four books of this series and am now waiting for the fifth and final book to be released. I really like this author duo. They do anti-hero very well. These guys aren't good guys by any means but they're not what I'd call villains either.

Anyway, Rogue finds herself back in the hometown she was cast out of after her boyfriend tried to kill her. She figures since she's there, she might as well get revenge on the group of guys who tossed her out like yesterday's trash and resulting in her life being less than ideal. Of course, she doesn't take into account the unbreakable bond they all share, and her murderous ex isn't as out of the picture as she'd like.


Before Time Runs Out
by Amy Matayo (author)

Brea is a graduate student who is failing the one class she needs to earn her degree. When her professor tells her the only way to salvage her grade is to ace her thesis, Brea decides to create her own version of Charles Dickens's infamous Ghost Club. What she doesn't anticipate is finding an original copy of one of Dickens's works or being transported by it into one of the original Ghost Club meetings, circa 1870, where she meets Theodore, another transplant from the future.


Crazy for Loving You
Author: Pippa Grant

In the final installment of the Bluewater Billionaires series, Daisy somehow inherits a baby. That baby comes with a by-the-books, no-nonsense retired Marine. Daisy's confident she'll have that baby running the family's real estate empire in no time, but living with her new co-guardian? He needs to go.


Rogue Ethereal series
by Annie Anderson (author)

Max has died a lot. Usually because she was trying to help someone. Now, in an attempt to help a pregnant woman escape a bad relationship, Max finds herself marked by a demon. The only way out of it is to kill the demon, but that's a lot easier said than done.


Clueless Magic (A Witch's Grimoire)
by J.J. Dean

On the eve of her 25th birthday, Livvie, who has no idea she's a witch, drunkenly summons three demons. Then she learns her best friend is a half-demon. Now, she finds herself navigating a world she never knew existed, and her newly acquired magic is being threatened.


by A.J. Macey (author)

Audrey is a ridiculously socially awkward bookshop owner. She has a lot of self-esteem issues and just generally wants to go unnoticed in life. Then, she's approached by the Ontario brothers. They're triplets who own some big tech company but are in danger of losing it all unless they can convince their board of directors that they've settled down and can be more adultlike. They decide that the best way to achieve this is for one of them to get married. So they ask Audrey to have a fake relationship with one of them and get married for a specific amount of time. She agrees based on some strange advice from her quirky grandma.

Technically, I just DNF'ed this one. I just could not get into it, so after making it halfway through and still feeling meh about it, I returned it, but I wanted to include it since I did technically start it this month, and it's been on my TBR for a really long time. I was hoping for a romantic comedy, but it really wasn't.
