WAYR-New

Casee: I’m reading zip. Zilch. Nothing. I don’t even know what to say anymore.

Holly: I had a pretty busy week and didn’t have as much time to read as I’d have liked. I re-read Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley.  Then I read Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry, which was enjoyable, but I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. Recently Ilona Andrews blogged about The Kingpin of Camelot by Cassandra Gannon, and I had to try it. It was so much fun! It was sweet and silly and over the top in the best possible way. If you’re looking for something light to read, I highly recommend it.

I’m almost finished with Whiskey Sharp: Unraveled by Lauren Dane. I’m really enjoying it. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next.

Rowena: I read two books this week and one of them I hadn’t planned on reading until I opened it. I read The Final Score (Play by Play #13) by Jaci Burton and that was a cute romance about two best friends that make that leap from besties to lovers to soulmates. 🙂 I also read If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I finished that book last night and man, it was good stuff. It was one of those books that make you think about the choices you make and the consequences bad decisions have.

I haven’t started a new book yet but my plan is start Chasing Christmas Eve (Heartbreaker Bay #4) by Jill Shalvis when I get home tonight. I’m stoked to finally read Spence’s book.

What are you reading this week? Any new favorites or books that drove you crazy? Share!

    I’m reading Grin and Beard It in an effort to catch up on my Penny Reid books. I have all of them but Dating-ish. It’s been really good, but I’ve been reading three days and just hit 25%. This reading slump seems permanent. I’m reading but everything is taking at least three times sometimes up to ten times longer to read than it used to. I’ve been way more into tv and movies for some reason than reading.

    Some recent reads here ~

    — Mary Jo Putney’s historical romance Once a Rebel; it was a pleasant read. It was enjoyable to read a historical romance from the regency era that was predominantly set in America and to hear about the war of 1812 from (primarily) a very sympathetic British perspective. Occasionally though it felt somewhat belabored, i.e., mentioning the heroine’s lawyer Francis Scott Key four times and including the poem “Defence of Fort M’Henry” which became, with time, The Star-Spangled Banner.
    — Midnight Curse (Disrupted Magic Book 1) by Melissa F. Olson. I’m not quite sure I understand the use of the number 1 above since I’ve previously read and enjoyed several books about the main character in this book. I enjoyed this one, too; it’s an urban fantasy.
    — I quite enjoyed Bone to Pick by TA Moore which I’d describe as a mystery with some elements of romance. The leads are an FBI agent and a K-9 dog handler.
    — St. Nacho’s by Z.A. Maxfield. This is a male/male love story that I also very much enjoyed; it happens to be currently free to Kindle readers.
    — The First Snowdrop by Mary Balogh. This is an early book by Mary Balogh published in 1986. I found the hero decidedly unheroic — he came across as a spoiled young man that said, I’m still glad to have read the book.
    — The Cat’s Meow by Lucius Parhelion. This free novella was reviewed on the Dear Author site and is rated as a recommended read; it’s a 1930s era male/male romance. It’s quite tame. The review has a link to the site where you can obtain a free copy.
    — The Invasion of Tork (Tork and Adam Book 1) by Claire Davis and Al Stewart. This is a contemporary story featuring two young men. I’d describe Tork as mentally troubled; he is also intelligent and homeless. Adam is volunteering at a homeless shelter and is a decidedly unsympathetic character when the story begins. Both change during the course of the story. This is currently free for Kindle readers.
    — See Jane Score (Chinooks Hockey Team Book 2) by Rachel Gibson. This was a re-read; it’s an enjoyable (2003) contemporary romance featuring a hockey player and a journalist/writer.
