Casee: I’m reading a series by T.M. Frazier called King. This is a new-to-me author whom I’m really enjoying. The books in this series are dark and gritty which is exactly what I’ve been in the mood for lately. I’m currently reading the 7th book in the series, Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part Three. Yes, that’s honestly the title. Like for real. And it fits the series perfectly.
I’m listening to Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews. It’s got me like this…
It’s the last book in the series and I’m having a seriously hard time letting go. I don’t want to let go of these characters.
Holly: I read a few more books in K.M. Shea’s King Arthur and Her Knights series. Embittered, Embark and Enlighten. I was waiting for a certain event to happen. Now that it has, I’m finished reading that series, even though there are a couple books I didn’t read. The series is probably a solid 3 overall; not great and not one I’ll re-read, but I did enjoy aspects of each book. I also read Beneath the Skin by Lauren Dane, a book I’ve had in my TBR pile for ages. It was great revisiting some of the characters from that world, and I enjoyed the romance.
I reread Castles by Julie Garwood after a conversation with Tracy about it. I still don’t like it. The hero drives me crazy, though I do like how smart the heroine is. I also reread Complicated by Kristen Ashley. I also reread Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely.
I started reading Coming Home by KB Alan, but set it aside about halfway through. I wasn’t feeling it at the moment. I’ll come back to it later. I was looking for a new audiobook and decided on The Earl Takes a Fancy by Lorraine Heath, which I was able to get from the library. Then I got the audiobook of The Scoundrel in Her Bed, another book in the series. I ended up reading and listening to them, since I was too impatient for just the audiobook. Now I plan to start The Duchess in his Bed. I’m reading the series all out of order. I requested the audio of Beauty Tempts the Beast from the library, but the way it 29 weeks long, so I’ll probably just read it.
Rowena: This past week was for reading and being sad that I’m done with Kate Daniels (I feel your pain, Casee) and all caught up with the Hidden Legacy series since I finished Emerald Blaze. I’m not sure what I’m going to do now. While I’m trying to figure out what my next Ilona Andrews read is going to be, I’m jumping back into Shine by Jessica Jung. I’m a newly converted KPop fan though I don’t know how true that is since I only listen to BTS, Jay Park, Gaho and the songs from my Korean Dramas but I’m curious about the whole Kpop world so I was stoked to get a review copy of Shine. I’m about halfway through and the life of idol trainees is fierce, competitive and I would have gotten kicked out because I would have fought all of those bitches already. LOL. Still, I’m enjoying the book.
