Top Ten Books That Hit the Funny Bone

Posted February 17, 2017 by Suzanne in Top Ten, Under the Covers / 15 Comments

  I love a funny book, if a book manages to make me laugh then it is pretty much guaranteed to get a good review from me; I’m sucker for it.

Writing a “darker” book also seems to be synonymous in people’s mind […]

Top Ten: Rakes

When I say rakes, I am being polite, what I mean is our Top Ten Manwhores, rakes implies that they are all historical romance based, which they aren’t. This list is proclaiming our favourite heroes who definitely are not virgins, in fact their non-virginal and more stick-it-in-anything-that-stands-still attitude is what got them on the list. However, we can’t be too upset about their slutty past, it has given them some skillz, skillz that our intrepid […]

Top Ten: Character Deaths I Can’t Get Over

First of all as you would imagine this post is spoilery.  Which is why we’ve hidden each name and explanation under a spoiler tag.  If you don’t want to know who dies in a particular book, don’t click it!  If you can handle it, go for it.  Also we ask that you are conscious when commenting on the post and only reference comments with the book name not actual character name so there’s no obvious […]
