My Favorite Non-Review Books: May 2021

I'm back with My Favorite Non-Review Books.  
 As a blogger sometimes writing reviews can feel like a chore so it seems I rarely write reviews for non-review books anymore. I feel bad about that, because it's not that I didn't enjoy them less than the books I review here, just that I don't have the time or energy to write a review for each and every book I read. I thought it would be nice to list my favorite non-review books each month to bring more attention to them.

I didn't read many non-review books for the month of May, but out of three I loved two. I'm featuring those here. 

May 2021 Favorites:



Blood Heir is a spinoff of the Kate Daniels series featuring her adopted daughter, Julie, eight years in the future. So many changes for Julie! I love the Kate Daniels series so I'm so thrilled we're back in the same world. However, now I want the next book and there is no news on when Ilona Andrews plans on writing and publishing the next one. Their writing is is soo so good, I sometimes forget how good until I dive into one of their books again. Five stars all the way.




Branded by Fire is Mercy and Riley's romance, the sixth in the Psy-Changeling series. It's one of my favorites so far, right up there with book one, Sascha and Lucas' story, and two, Faith and Vaughn's story. I'm looking forward to continuing the series as part of Anne @Books of My Heart's read-along. I'm behind, but I already have the next book up and ready. 

That's it for May. I should have more non-review books for June. 

Do you have any stand out non-review books recently?

  1. I haven't read either of these. That Singh series seems like a fan favorite though. Someone is always talking about it.

    1. She has contemporary romance books, too, Sam! I haven't tried those yet, but they'd probably appeal to you more. :)

  2. I'm doing the readalong, too, and loving getting back into the earlier books in the series. I still need to read Blood Heir and the other spinoff that came before. I've been catching up on other Ilona Andrews' books lately.

    1. Lately I haven't had a lot of time to read anything but review books! I think I'll have several in June.

  4. I see nothing but raves for the Psy-Changeling series but I'm always hesitant to try it because it's so far from my norm.

    1. Singh writes contemporary romance, too. I need to give that a try seeing as I love her writing. That might work for you.

  5. Oh I love that the Kate Daniels' daughter has a spin off series. I can't freaking wait for Blip from the Charley Davidson series to get hers. Sighhh.

    1. I never did finish Charley Davidson. There's a novella with her best friend's daughter that I want to read. I forget their names now. :/

  6. Both of these were 5 heart reads for me. Ilona Andrews is my favorite of favorite authors. Nalini Singh is showing me her genius. Thanks for joining us. Every book I'm not sure I'll like it and then once I start reading I'm hooked.
