What Are You Reading? (+ Autographed Contemporary Giveaway)

Posted February 9, 2018 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 24 Comments


Casee: I am still reading Blood Fury by JRW. Last night was the first time I really had a chance to sit down and really read the whole week. The book really took an interesting turn that made me want to continue to read it, so I didn’t go to bed until late. Well late for me anyway. I’m looking forward to finishing up this weekend (fingers crossed). This morning when I was scrolling through Instagram, I saw Nalini’s post about her upcoming Guild Hunter novel and I realized that I haven’t read Archangel’s Viper. W.T.F. That will be rectified after I finish Blood Fury. As Nalini’s number one fan, I am ashamed.

Holly: I’ve been fighting migraines all week, but I still managed to get some reading done. I finished Natural Witch by K.F. Breene, which I really enjoyed. It’s a spinoff of the Fire an Ice trilogy and features Penelope, the natural witch Regan discovered in (I think) book 3. I’m really looking forward to the next book. Then I read The Others series by Anne Bishop. I read Written in Red, Murder of Crows, Vision in Silver and Marked in Flesh. I’m currently about halfway through Etched in Bone. I didn’t intend to read the entire series at one time, but I couldn’t seem to stop myself from picking up the next after I finished each one.

Written in Red is currently $2.99 for the Kindle if you want to give it a try. It’s a very compelling series, though light on romance.

Rowena: What a busy week I’ve had. Between work and basketball, I’ve been all over the place so while I have been reading, I haven’t been reading much. I finished Irresistible You by Kate Meader and I really enjoyed that one. Much more than I enjoyed the novella that jump-started the series for me. Remy and Harper were a great couple and their romance was super sweet. Right after I finished that book, I jumped into So Over You by Kate Meader, the next book in her Chicago Rebels series and I enjoyed that one even more than I enjoyed Remy and Harper. Vadim and Isobel were so much fun and their story super, super adorable. I really adore the second chance romances and Kate Meader did such a great job telling theirs.

Now, I’m reading Undone by You by Kate Meader (yes, it’s a Meader kind of week for me) and once again, I’m having a fabulous time with Cade and Dante. Their romance is super hot and both guys are super yummy. I cannot wait to read Bren and Violet’s story. I’m super anxious for that one. Up next will probably be The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory. I’ve been hearing great things about that book so I’m looking forward to diving into that romance.

From the New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Wedding comes a novel about a man and a woman whose summer is about to get very, very steamy…

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford…

Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there's no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for…

    • Which one? I have her moat recent book in my TBR pile. I tried to read it a couple weeks ago but I wasn’t in the mood. I plan to go back to it later. LLG is a long time favorite, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

    I haven’t posted my reading in a while since I was away from home for most of January during my mother’s last days. Here’s what I’ve read this year ~

    Spyridon by Lillian James (enjoyed)
    Spellbinder by Thea Harrison (enjoyed)
    Five Minutes Longer by Victoria Sue (enjoyed)
    Against All Odds by Jezz De Silva (enjoyed)

    Ruin of a Rake by Cat Sebastian (enjoyed)
    The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers (enjoyed)
    Her Heart’s Desire by Laura Shipley (written by an acquaintance of an acquaintance; won’t be re-reading)
    Fire in His Blood by Ruby Dixon (rather ho hum)
    A Reason to Believe by Diana Copland (liked this)
    Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan for my sister’s book group (quite good)

    Plus these re-reads (all highly enjoyable) ~

    Switched by N R Walker
    Five novels in The Others series by Anne Bishop (these are good, Holly! I’m looking forward to the author’s new book coming out in March)
    Three books featuring Liam and Ondry plus the prelude by Lyn Gala
    Two Guardsmen novels by Cooper West plus two shorter works
    Alpha and Omega plus Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

    • I alternated between reading and listening to them. I enjoyed the audio books, but the way the narrator spoke as Simon always pulled me out of the story.

      I’m so sad the next book isn’t set in the Lakeside Courtyard! I wasn’t ready!

  2. It looks like you all have had a successful reading week so far. Mine hasn’t been so bad, but I was pretty behind in reviews, so I took a step back this week and just did some re reading. But I am just about finished with Eight Simple Rules For Dating A Dragon by Kerrelyn Sparks.

  3. Kelly

    I’m reading Interborough (Santino Hassell) on Hoopla, An Ice Cold Grave (Charlaine Harris) on audio and A Paris Apartment (Michelle Gable) in print. Loving Interborough but I’m a little worried about A Paris Apartment. I think it’s going toward a cheating plot and just ugh. This is why I don’t read lit very often.

    I had an excellent reading week with two books from Netgalley. I just finished On The Brink of Passion by Tamsen Parker for which I was making lots of good book noises. It’s part of her Snow and Ice Games series. So much intensity and passion along with 2 lead characters who are both utterly committed to their sport and to winning. I then read Playing House by Amy Andrews, a rugby romance with two tropes I dislike (best friend’s little sister, heroine trying to lose her virginity) and one trope I love (surprise pregnancy). Obviously, the trope that I love won out and I really enjoyed the book, especially since Eleanor, the heroine was into all things Victorian and had a business making Victorian clothes.

  5. Anita H.

    Funny enough I’m reading Love Irresistibly by Julie James. I’d forgotten how much I love her books, love the banter and the heat that leaps off the pages between Cade and Brooke.
