Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh

Soul mates are one of my favorite tropes, and I have heard nothing but fantastic things about this series. Now that book two is out (today!!!!!), I’m hoping to binge read them both next week during my spring break. I’m so excited to finally get a chance to get into this series! The first book is m/m, and this one is f/f with demisexual rep!

Curved Horizon picks up a few weeks after the conclusion of Fortitude Smashed with Daisy Yuen and Chelsea Cavanaugh, whose Camellia Clocks are drawing close to timing out. Navigating the ins-and-outs of love is hard enough as strangers destined to be soul mates and proves even more complicated when Daisy shares dark, ugly secrets that linger in her and Aiden’s pasts.
Meanwhile, Shannon and Aiden continue to explore their own, new relationship. Fall brings them an unforgettable one-year anniversary, but when Shannon suffers a life-threatening accident on the job, Chelsea, Daisy, and Aiden must find a way to let go of the past to make room for their future.
The amount of unread books I own is highly embarrassing (close to 400). I sorted my Goodreads owned-tbr shelf by date and these are ten of the oldest from that shelf. I purge my shelves fairly regularly, so even though I’ve owned all of these for at least four years, I do actually plan to read all of them…eventually.
I’ve been collecting books for Black History Month for a while now. At last count, 13 of the 20 books on my TBR are written by black authors and/or have black main characters. The rest are books I had already started reading in January, ARCs, library books I need to get to, and my book club’s pick for the month.
I only have access to about 6 of these on audio, and considering almost everything I read in January was via audiobook, I know this big TBR of physical books is going to be really tough for me. Fingers crossed that I get through at least 75% of these.
How was your January? I read everything that was on my TBR for the month! Hooray! Actually, somehow I managed to read 27 books in January???!!!! All but 4 were audiobooks, so that definitely helped. I got a lot of cross stitching done while I listened to books, and I had a 5 day weekend in the middle of the month (thank you snow days!) where I listened to 2 books every day. Evenfall was one of the ebooks I read, and it was 1,427 pages, so it was a feat in itself just to get that finished in a month. I also read and reviewed 46 children’s books on NetGalley, but I don’t keep track of those on Goodreads.
