Casee: Casee is out camping this week. Let’s hope she’s also reading all the books. 🙂
Holly: This was a much slower reading week for me than the last. I didn’t have much time to read over the weekend and I chose to watch movies on Monday rather than read. I finished Dragon Unleashed by Grace Draven, which I ended up really loving. The ending of that book was great. It was a slow moving story, but it worked well in context. I only wish the next book was available already. I started a new series, King Arthur and Her Knights by K.M. Shea. I’ve been craving Arthurian romances and I love the premise of this – a woman gets taken back in time to become the one true King of Britain – I read Enthroned and Enchanted. The first half of Enthroned was pretty bad and I almost quit reading. The second half picked up enough for me to want to read the next book. Enchanted was better than Enthroned, but not great. They’re pretty light reads without a lot of depth, but I am enjoying the gender swap and I’m hoping they get better as the series progresses.
I’m currently listening to a book called She Walks in Power by MaryLu Tyndall, a new to me author. It’s another gender swap where the heroine is the Robin Hood character. I’m early into it, but I’m enjoying it so far.
Rowena: My reading slowed down this week and because of that, I quit the book that I was reading because I wasn’t in the mood for a historical romance. That book was The Perfect Rake by Anne Gracie. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it but I’ve been itching to start Emerald Blaze by Ilona Andrews so I did. So far, so good so I’m hyped to finish it. Bring on Catalina and Alessandro, please!
