Some Binge-worthy Books

I’ve talked about some of K.M. Shea’s books before because I’ve loved everything I’ve read of hers so far. The only books I haven’t quite read yet are some of the really old ones on her backlist.

But today, I wanted to talk about two connected series of hers, one of which I binged recently.

The Hall of Blood and Mercy series came out a little over half a year ago. Since K.M. Shea was releasing the series with a month between each book, I waited until just before the 3rd book was out before I started reading. This series is a loose retelling of Donkeyskin without any of the truly disturbing parts of that fairytale. I loved reading Hazel’s story in general, but the part of me that’s obsessed with fairytales geeked out on the parts that were recognizable as being from Donkeyskin.

Other than the fairytale aspect, this series was fast-paced and entertaining on so many levels. These books have the humor that is characteristic of K.M. Shea’s books that had me laughing often. The romance was adorable and I loved the world and the characters. The dynamics between Hazel and Killian were some of my favorite parts of the books, though their interactions with some of the other characters were awesome as well.

If you are in Kindle Unlimited, you can read the whole series for free. Here is the book link if you want to check it out.

The last book in the Court of Midnight and Deception series came out this month, so I started reading just before that release date. As far as I know, this one is not based on a fairytale, but I loved it just as much as I loved Hazel’s story.

This series is set in the same world as the Hall of Blood and Mercy series and it takes place just after that series ends. So I would strongly recommend that you read the Hall of Blood and Mercy series first to avoid some pretty big spoilers.

This series follows Hazel’s friend/Killian’s neighbor, Leila and the far assassin, Rigel. But Hazel and Killian make an appearance at least once in each book. I loved this series for a lot of the same reasons as I loved the Hall of Blood and Mercy series. Rigel and Leila’s relationship takes a much different path than Hazel and Killian’s, but I can’t really say which couple I like more.

This series is also free to read in Kindle Unlimited. Here’s the series link.

If you don’t have Kindle Unlimited and you haven’t tried it recently, you may be able to try it for a month free. Go here if you want to check it out. I’m not exactly sure what the time period is between trials for determining if you are eligible or if you are ineligible for trying it recently. But I tried Kindle Unlimited three times before I decided that I would read within the program often enough to make the subscription worth it for me.

Jilted by Azaaa Davis
Page count: 60
Blurb: 


Administrative assistant by day and boss lady on social media by night, Theresa enjoys sharing her charmed life with half-million followers. The only thing she loves more is being engaged to the hottest doctor at the clinic where they both work. Cementing her fame by reaching one million followers would be the icing on her wedding cake.

Life stops running smoothly when her husband vanishes on their wedding night and a leaked photo of a barely-dressed Theresa yelling at the police sparks a viral sensation. With everything at stake—love, reputation, followers, and job—she embarks on a reluctant voyage of discovery. Follow Theresa as she stumbles over her new husband’s secrets and develops her inner strength.

I’m not familiar with the other authors or their stories, but I will definitely by reading Jilted and the price right now is too good to pass up.
