What Are You Reading? (508)

Posted December 6, 2019 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Casee: I’m between books right now. I finished Hero’s Haven by Rebecca Zanetti last night. I’m either going to read You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley or Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik. Spinning Silver is the book my book club chose for December. I can’t say I’m excited to read it even though the reviews are really great.

I’m listening to For You by Kristen Ashley. KA’s audiobooks are so long, but I still decided to give this one a listen. I’ve also been listening to the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh.

Holly: Last week I continued my Kristen Ashley re-reads with Soaring, The Time in Between, For You and Fairytale Come Alive. I also re-read Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood.

I tried to listen to The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost, but the heroine annoyed the crap out of me and I ended up quitting about halfway through. I really enjoyed How to Run with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper and Laird Wolf by Vivian Arend. Both had some issues, but overall were sweet, fun romances.

I’m currently listening to The Fate of Mercy Alban by Wendy Webb. I’m still pretty early into it, but I’m enjoying the narrator and the gothic feel of the story, despite it being set in Modern Day America.

Rowena: I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday if you’re in the states and celebrate that. If not, I hope you guys had a fabulous week and read all of the good books.

It’s been a pretty crazy Thanksgiving holiday for me with my entire family being in California for it but as crazy as it was, I had a great time bonding with them. Unfortunately, with everyone being in town and running around for my niece’s baby shower on Saturday (which came out super lovely) and my nephew’s CIF football game (boo! We lost the Championship game!), I didn’t any reading done.

This week is a new week though because I am reading two books. I’m just about done reading Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long and I’m listening to The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole. Both books are great and I’m hopeful I’ll love them both by the time I’m done with them. After this, I’ll be reading The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan. For realsy.

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

    I finished an absolutely amazing duet this week, WORSHIP & ADORE by Ella James. It’s an m/m romance between a closeted mega-church pastor and the pan-sexual artist with whom he begins a furtive affair which gradually evolves into something more emotional. Beautifully-written, very emotional, with extremely hot and explicit sex scenes. As much one man’s long, difficult to coming out as it is a lovely romance. Highly recommended.

    During Thanksgiving week:

    The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez which I enjoyed even though it did make me cry.
    — enjoyed Wolf’s Clothing (Legend Tripping Book 2) by E.J. Russell even though I had not read the first book in the series.

    — Traveling to and from our friends’ house for Thanksgiving, my husband and I listened to Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. Normally I doze while my husband drives and listens; however, this kept my attention, too.
    — read and enjoyed A Holiday By Gaslight: A Victorian Christmas Novella by Mimi Matthews. I’d heard some good reviews of this author’s books and would happily read others by her.
    — quite enjoyed The Terrans (First Salik War Book 1) by Jean Johnson which I’d describe as a science fiction first contact story. It does have a fairly gruesome section early on, but it’s soon over.
    — also enjoyed Reindeer Games by N.R. Walker which was a short male/male romance.
    — stayed up late finishing Christmas Hope by Caroline Warfield which I purchased after reading a wonderful review on the Dear Author site. It’s a historical romance set during WWI and takes place mostly in France. I recommend it.
