What Are You Reading? (396)

Casee: I’ve finally found a book that should get me out of this, well, whatever it is I’m in. Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti is the fourth book in the Scorpius Syndrome series. I’m a sucker for dystopian romance and this series is everything I love about the genre.

Holly: Rowena and our friend Grace forced me to re-read old Julie Garwood novels this week. I wanted to read other stuff, but I just couldn’t make myself set aside those comfort reads. I read The Prize, The Bride, The Wedding, Guardian Angel, Honor’s Splendour and Saving Grace.

Rowena: It’s been a rough reading week for me but I did manage to get the one new to me read finished just last night. I did a bunch of re-reading this week and I blame that all on our friend Grace and Holly. How dare they interrupt my reading schedule with a bunch of Julie Garwood comfort reads. Ha! I re-read Julie Garwood’s The Prize, The Wedding and Saving Grace and each of those reads lived up to my love of Julie Garwood historicals. I also read Duke of My Heart by Kelly Bowen and had high expectations going in since the heroine was a historical Olivia Pope and I thought it would be really interesting but it took me a while to get into that one though I did end up liking it. I just didn’t love it.

Now I’m jumping into Only with You (The Best Mistake #1) by Lauren Layne.

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

  1. After two attempts on audio and one in print, I’m officially giving up on Archangel’s Heart. I can’t seem to keep my eyes or ears open for it. I’ve re-picked up A Gathering Storm, which didn’t grab me on first try, but seems to be working now.

    — The Necromancer’s Dance (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer Book 1) by SJ Himes which I enjoyed but not as much as I liked the author’s Wolfkin Saga books. That said, I’d like to read the next book in this series.
    — the novella Blood on Sand by Ofelia Gränd. This was a curious paranormal read that was both intriguing and repugnant; it featured a lizard shifter and a werewolf. In case you’re interested, it’s currently free for Kindle readers.
