I am here today with my fifth Romanceopoly TBR. The board is getting pretty full which is going to make it interesting. One side only has one prompt left.
Like the name suggests, it’s romanced themed Monopoly game which is designed to get you to explore a range of different sub genres. Each neighbourhood has been replaced by a genre and each street has a unique challenge within that genre. Although, some neighbourhoods are a little more diverse and offer a melting pot of different genres to delve into.
The challenge is hosted by the ladies over at PeaceLoveBooksxo and Under the Covers Book Blog. For all the information about the challenge and recommendations can be found at the Romanceopoly website.
I’ve decided that I’m going to make my way around the board using the scenic route option to move around this board. For this route I’ll start at the “Go” square, roll the dice and move forward the number of squares I’ve rolled.
There are 39 streets and amenities all with their own unique prompt to complete. As usual, I will do 5 rolls to determine my TBR.
On to the books and prompts!
Read a romance that develops from a one night stand or a brief romantic tryst
This might end up being my first Christina Lauren because I’m failing at the Romanceopoly Readathon. It’s taken me this long to them but mostly I didn’t know where to start, but after much deliberation this one sounds fun.
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient or wickedly persuasive or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like Ansel Guillaume.
After a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation, Mia Holland is terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out. So she makes the wildest decision of her life — to follow Ansel to France for the summer. When feelings begin to develop, Mia will have to decided if she belongs in the life she left behind or the strange new on that seems worlds away.
Read an urban fantasy published in the last 5 years
This is probably my most ambitious pick for this whole challenge. Most of the urban fantasy series I’ve only just started and they started being published in the mid 2000s. So I’ve decided to pick my overlord, Nalini Singh! Archangel’s Enigma was first published in 2015.
This is book eight in the Guild Hunter series and I’m currently up to book five so I have three books to read before I can get to this one. I’m excited for the Guild Hunter reading binge I’ve planned for May!
This series has angels, vampires and vampire hunters. While I don’t love it as much as the Psy-Changeling series, I still adore it. I love Nalini’s take on vampires and how they’ve been created by angels.
Read a book that has either food or drink on the cover or a foodie word in the title
I love Elle Kennedy’s writing. I have only read her hockey romance series, Off Campus and Briar U, so I’m excited something different for her.
Between her waitressing job, volunteer work, and college classes, there are never enough hours in Maggie Reilly’s day. Especially not for a relationship. Luckily, she’s got the perfect arrangement: a lover she meets three or four times a year. But when she shows up at the hotel expecting to hop into bed with one man, she accidentally ends up with another—Ben Barrett, Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy.
That premise! Oh my god I cannot wait to see how this pans out.
Read a contemporary romance with mature characters (40+)
This is a reread and I cannot wait to get to it! P.C. Cast’s Goddess Summoning series is one of my all time favourites and I’m over due for a reread. From memory both the heroine and hero are in their 40s.
Isabel, a world-weary photojournalist, is grounded back home in Oklahoma, when her car plummets off a bridge into a lake. On the edge between life and death, she’s miraculously saved by the Water Goddess, but with one tiny caveat: Isabel must travel to another time to seduce the legendary Lancelot du Lac away from Queen Guinevere.
Read a book where it has a green or yellow cover; has flowers on the cover; has the word ‘Spring’ in the title; where the hero or heroine is a gardener or farmer
Kerrelyn Sparks is a pretty big name in paranormal/urban fantasy relem and I cannot believe I haven’t read anything from her yet! On the positive side if I love her writing she has a mammoth backlist I can read my through.
This is the first book in a new series. I believe is a spin off of her The Embraced series, which I haven’t read but I’m sure it will be fine.
Princess Sorcha of Norveshka knew the mission was dangerous. She is leaving the safe grounds of her brother’s kingdom and parlaying with the elves across their border. Treachery seemed at least as likely as true peace. Sorcha would brave far more than the underhanded ways of the elves. Or so she thought, before she was taken hostage.
