What Nikita Read: January 2014

I have been amazed that even though I was ill for almost two weeks that I still was able to read twenty-three books in the month of January. Out of all the books I read I found my favorite book was:

This book was my favorite because it was a bit different from all the other books I read. It did not frustrate me as much as one of the other Revolutionary War books I read during the month. I found the character development was good and the story was more real to me. I think one of the other things that helped me like this book is unlike the other book I read of the same time period I did not feel I was being confused on where I was at and I did not feel the confusion of where time went. (Plus I felt the other book, yes had historical events more or less correct, I felt it had to many liberties or felt the gaps bugged me. It probably doesn’t help I am a lover for history.) I would recommend this book to be read by anyone.

Yes, if anyone noticed there are a lot of Romance Novels, there some that were even for me over the top in sex, but I had always liked the stories, the characters and the dialogue. The best part is most of the romance novels I tend to read I can skip the sex and still have a story so most of these I could do that. I cannot say I would re-read them again over and over, it is just it had been awhile since I had read some of them (well most like two years or so). One of the Romance Novels on my list I will never read again or it will be a long while before I do, that was Styxx. I will say it can be a good book, but well, I cannot handle flashbacks of things that happened to me. The certain parts of the book triggered a lot of that. I skipped a lot of pages so I would not have the trigger. If you handle the scenes more power to you. I understand she had to write those, but for some of us well we should be left to not know all the details.
