Holly: I’m still not reading as much as I’d like to be. A big part of it is the return of the school year and my mom having surgery (she’s home now, but caring for her is a time consuming job).
I read No Attachments by Tiffany King. Rowena and I will be reviewing this together next month. I liked it quite a bit, though I really struggled with the conflict. I don’t want to spoil it for Rowena.
Against the Cage by Sidney Halston is an MMA fighter book. I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped. The MMA fighting bit was barely mentioned and the characters seemed pretty immature.
Archangel’s Shadows by Nalini Singh was great. I really loved Ash and Janvier. There were also bits from Elena and Raphael and Dmitri, which worked very well with the story. I’m only sorry there aren’t 30 books in the series for me to binge on all at once.
I re-read Highland Groom by Hannah Howell after a conversation with Tracy. She’s been reading the series off and on (her first time) and I want to re-read every time she mentions a book. The series gets tired after awhile, but the early books are so fabulous. Howell writes fabulous, kickass heroines. I enjoyed Ilsa and her plight. I’m glad I read it again.
I haven’t decided what to read next. Maybe Promise Me This by Christina Lee.
Rowena: It’s been a pretty craptastic week of reading for me. I kept meaning to read but was busy with other stuff. I got laid off from my job again so my mind hasn’t been focused on my reading though I’ll have plenty of time for reading once my last day comes creeping up on me. So there’s a silver lining for you.
I did manage to get some reading done. I re-read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, mostly because I finished Isla and the Happily Ever After not too long ago and adored it so I went back and read Anna cause I wanted to see the characters again. I still love the hell out of that book. I also read No Attachments by Tiffany King which was cute, I didn’t fall head over heels in love with it but it wasn’t bad. Before We Fall by Courtney Cole was hard for me to get through. I almost DNF’d it three different times but stuck it out and then wondered why I even bothered. Ugh, it got on my nerves.
Now, I’m going to read Promise Me This by Christina Lee.
