New Year's Book List by Christine DePetrillo

It’s time for a New Year’s Book List!

My Top Five Picks:

1. Sarina Bowen’s True North Series – I’ve read three so far and OMG, sooo good. Vermont setting. Sexy as hell guys. Cozy endings that stick with you long after you’ve finished the book. You won’t be disappointed.

2. Marie Forces’s Green Mountain Series – Yeah, so take the explanation from #1 and paste it here. I I’m a little addicted to reading about Vermont. VT always makes me happy!
3. Paige Tyler’s SWAT Series – Alpha werewolves who always get the bad guys. Sign me up! I’m on Book Five of this series and loving every minute of it.
4. Stephanie Kay’s Love by the Bay Series – Great desserts and fun drinks make the two books in this series must reads. Can’t wait for the next book!

5. Okay this last one isn’t a book. It’s a TV show – Younger – on TVLand or I watch it on Amazon Video because I don’t have that channel. It is totally worth the $1.99 I pay to view it. The premise is a 40-year old woman who couldn’t get a job in publishing so she pretends to be in her 20s instead. Maintaining a lie like that isn’t easy, but it sure is hilarious. The characters are well-developed and there are so many moments that make you go awww that you won’t be able to wipe the smile off your face. Give it a try.

Okay, what recommendations do you have for me? Books? TV? Movies? Music? Let me have it!


SAFE, Book One, The Shielded Series, FREE in ebook!
PROTECTED, Book Two, The Shielded Series, available now!

SECURE, Book Three, The Shielded Series, coming soon!

I never seem to have time to read anymore. Sounds like an interesting list, Chris, but I'm afraid I can't add to it. On the TV front, my new favorite show is Blindspot. Very exciting.

Nothing new to add to the book list either...unless you haven't yet tried Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series...or the TV show!

Also on TV shows, Blacklist with James Spader. It's in its third year now. The first year was great, second year so-so, but this year is really good again.

A friend told me about Younger, and I keep forgetting the title! Must look it up.

Thanks for the book list too.

As for TV shows, I love Blacklist, too. I love anything with a hint of a conspiracy.
I'm almost finished with Lexi Blake's book 9 of her Masters and Mercenaries series. I love the "family" of Dominants and their brotherhood interaction. I also like Terry Spears shifter stories. She approaches hers much differently than I do mine. And they're fab. I only read a chapter or two in bed at night while Cal showers and sneaks another bedtime snack.

Chris, if you're a romantic and historical fiction appeals to you, then do read the original Poldark books by Winston Graham--that's my tip of the day. Thanks for yours!

Good question, Chris. I'm reading some of the Sandra Brown novels I'd missed. My husband and I are enjoying The Crown...TV series about the young Queen Elizabeth. Can't wait for Outlander's new season. I'm reading about a book a week. I'll have to think more about my favorites!

I used to keep a running list in my computer of books I want to read. It's still there but I haven't added to it in ages. I don't have much time for reading. Right now I'm on one of the Outlander books and intend to finish the whole series. I can't read more than one or two of them a year because they are so every and so detailed. What's next? No idea. I haven't read any of the ones you mentioned. I have heard of the show. My 86 year old mother loves it. I have even less time for tv than reading.
