What I’m Listening to now : Out by Natsuo Kirin
Quick Review: Dangerous Damsels Series by India Holton
This series was so delightful. The perfect fluffy romance and action and excitement. You have the perfect Victorian maiden’s who just happened to be Pirates, witches and secret agents. All working together, against each other and all in between. The First book has Cecelia who wants to finally join the ranks of the Wisteria Society and claim her right as a Pirate Queen her mother is but when her father kidnaps the Society it is up to her and Captain to save them. Delightful.
And then we are introduced to Charlotte, a powerful witch who like everyone else is after the a powerful artifact. She teams up with Pirate Alex, putting aside decades long feud to get it back. Magical. I love them.
And then finally, we have Alice and Daniel, undercover agents who have posed as maids and butlers for the forementioned pirates and witches. Because really who would be the best informants and spies then the people who are always there but rarely seen. Maybe my favorite of the all three.
Each book is a different following a different couple but the sense of humor is the same in all three and I can not recommend them enough. If you are looking for a fun, light read you can’t do wrong with this series.
What I’m Reading Now: The Sun and The Star by Rick Riordan and Mark Oshiro
I’m super stoked for this one. Nico has been one of the most interesting characters that Rick Riordan ever wrote and I’m so happy that he’s finally getting his own novel.

What are your comfort reads?
Do you have that go to book that when you just need something to read but you don’t have something lined up? For me that is the Unearthly series. I was on my commute to work earlier this week and I had about 15 minutes left and I had just finished The League of Gentewoman Witches and nothing new downloaded to my Nook. So I do what I always do when I’m in the situation. I open up Unearthly. It’s definitely a comfort read. It’s a simple romance about a girl who is part angel who is balancing her purpose with high school and college. It also has the best book boyfriend of all time, Tucker Avery and it bothers me that not enough people know about him
This made me wonder. What are your go to books when you are in between books? And why do you always go back to it?
