Casee: I’m reading Rock Chick Renegade by Kristen Ashley. I’m really liking this series. It’s so over the top, but still super funny. I’m also still reading Looking Inside by Beth Kery.
Im listening to Magic Binds. I am so in love with this series. I can’t believe I’m already on the ninth book.
Holly: We missed last week, so here are my reads for the past two weeks. I DNF’d Song of Blood and Stone by L. Penelope just over the halfway mark. I was liking it early on, but then it turned kind of weird (trucks and cars in what I thought was a fantasy world, etc). I might try the second book in the series. I read The Malediction Trilogy by Danielle L. Jensen. Stolen Songbird, book 1, was really good. I liked the premise and the politics and intrigues. I didn’t enjoy book 2, Hidden Huntress, quite as much, but I liked Warrior Witch, the third and final book. Interestingly, I actually came to like the main character less in each book. I would still recommend the trilogy for the world and secondary characters.
I read and listened to Wishing for a Highlander by Jessi Gage. It was just okay. I liked the premise and the hero, but the wishy-washy heroine and over-the-top villainous characters worked against it. I started the second book, The Wolf and the Highlander, but quickly set it aside when I realized one of the villains from the first book was the heroine of the story. I may come back to it later once I have some space from her actions in the first book.
Aside from that I re-read several novels by Kristen Ashley (Rock Chick Reawakening, Rock Chick Regret, Games of the Heart and Golden Trail), Crush the King by Jennifer Estep to refresh my memory before I reviewed it with Ames and listened to Wildfire by Ilona Andrews. I am planning to read Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts by Nancy Campbell Allen next, I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
