Casee: It was another slow reading week for me. I have been reading Devil’s Cut by J.R. Ward for a week now. I love this series. It is so soap opera like. I adore it. I dare say that I like it more than the BDB. I really admire JRW for ending it with this book. I’m hoping that I have some quiet time to really get into it this weekend. I know once I do that I won’t be able to put it down.
Holly: This was a quiet reading week for me. I read Fused in Fire by K.F. Breene, the conclusion to the Fire and Ice Trilogy. It wrapped up the overarching storyline, but I still have so many questions! Luckily the author’s note said she plans to explore the world more through different characters. I started several books and couldn’t get in to them. Hidden Fire by Elizabeth Hunter ($.99 for Kindle right now!), Charred Heart by Lizzy Ford (currently Free for Kindle!), and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I think I was suffering a book hangover from the Fire and Ice Trilogy and that’s why I couldn’t get into them. I’m going to set them aside for now and come back to them later.
I ended up rereading Sweep in Peace and One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews. I started Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie last night. I’m a little concerned I won’t love it as much as I used to, because it’s been years since I’ve read it. I’m sure it’ll hold up and I’m worrying for nothing.
I’ve been craving Arthurian romances since I finished Spellbinder by Thea Harrison, but I’ve been having a hard time finding any. Amazon popped up with a recommendation for Magic Waking by Eva Chase. I’m going to start that next.
Rowena: It’s been a productive reading week for me and I’m glad to finally be reading on a regular basis. This summer has been a struggle on the reading front so really, I’m glad to be reading something again. This week, I read Links by Lisa Becker, which was an overall good story but I struggled with the dialogue and the heroine a bit. The hero was fantastic though. After that, I jumped into Gentlemen Prefer Heiresses by Lorraine Heath and I really enjoyed that one. It was a quick read but I adored both Andrew and Gina in the other books and they really shined in their own story. My only gripe is that I wish it had been longer…but that was just me being greedy. Their story was damn near perfect.
Right now, I’m finishing up Royally Screwed by Emma Chase and it’s got me silly grinning at work. I really am enjoying Nicholas and Olivia’s story and I can’t wait to buddy review this one with my friend, Ames. After I finish Royally Screwed, I’m going to jump into Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews so that I can finally see what everyone else has been going on and on about. Everyone loves Ilona Andrews so I’m going to find out if I love her too. Finally.
