Rowena: I just keep right on sucking on the reading front. This time though, it was because it took me so long to read a book that I thought I was going to thoroughly enjoy. I’m still reading the Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker and I don’t know if it’s because this isn’t a piece of fiction or what, but I can’t seem to stay focused while reading this book. I keep wanting to read everything else in my library instead.
But I finally finished The Fool’s Girl by Celia Rees and Tracy Anne Warren’s Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed. The Fool’s Girl was interesting but too wordy and Wicked Delights was a delightful read and probably my favorite read of the week. Right now, I’m going to force myself to finish the Beverly Hills book and then I’m going to continue with The Book of Peach by Penelope Stokes.
Casee: August is looking to be a good reading month for me. I just finished Water Bound by Christine Feehan this morning. It’s the best book I’ve read by her in a very long time. I liked that it wasn’t filled up with pages and pages of sex. In fact, it wasn’t until over halfway through the book that the characters in this book had sex. That must be a Feehan record or something.
Next I’m going to start the Burning Up anthology by Angela Knight, Nalini Singh, Virginia Kantra, and Meljean Brook. I’m not an anthology fan, but I’ll read anything that Nalini Singh has written.
Holly: I’ve been in the mood for category romances lately. I read Do You Take This Cop by Beth Andrews, then Friendly Fire by Jill Shalvis and now Claimed by Vicki Lewis Thompson. I didn’t care for the Andrews at all. The heroine crossed the TSTL line early in the book, and the hero followed later on. I did enjoy the Shalvis, though I’m sure none of you are surprised by that. So far the Thompson is good.
I haven’t decided what to read next. Maybe y’all can suggest something? Have you read anything good lately?
Tell us, what are you reading?
