Casee: Nothing. I’m reading nothing. Send help.
Holly: A few weeks ago I bought Magic Waking and Soul’s Blade by Eva Chase. They’re Arthurian based UF novels I was pretty excited to read. Life got busy and I didn’t have a chance to read them until this week. Sadly, they didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. Magic Waking was just okay. I loved the flashbacks to Merlin and Arthur 1500 years ago, but the pacing was kind of slow through the modern stuff. Soul’s Blade I ended up DNFing. The plot moved pretty slow and I could see it was going to end on a cliffhanger, so I’m putting it off until the next book is out (Dragon Reborn, November, 2017). I’m a little bummed because I had high hopes, but maybe the third book will tighten things up a bit.
After that I read Kristen Ashley’s latest release, The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley. It wasn’t a bad read, but I think I enjoyed the previous two books in the series more. Next up is Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry. I love both authors and I can’t to read this collaboration.
Rowena: Brenna started college this week so it’s been a whirlwind of activity for us. She was dropped from one of her classes that she needed to play basketball (the dropped class put her below the required number of units she needed to play) so she needed to crash courses until she could get in and on Wednesday, she was able to get into a class that she needs. Thank goodness because I wanted to punch someone…the day before classes were due to start, El Camino? Really?
Anyway, I still made time for books though I only read one book. Or, I finished Royally Endowed by Emma Chase, which was a great read and then I jumped into Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry and that was a solid romance too.
Now I’m reading Fallen Heir (Royals #4) by Erin Watt and I’m pretty sure this book is going to be a DNF for me. I’m really bummed about that because I really did love Easton before but now? I just can’t deal with all of this stupid shit going on and the shine of my love for this guilty pleasure series is gone and I don’t think I’m going to continue this series. shrugs So now I’m jumping into If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I hope I have better luck with this story and characters. Wish me luck.
