What Are You Reading? (556)

I’m still reading Rock Chick Renegade. I’m really, really loving it. The heroine is actually smart. She is very emotional but she doesn’t fly off the handle & do stupid shit based on that emotion (ie Indy Savage). I love the camaraderie between the women in this series. It’s so great to see the Rock Chicks interact.

I’m trying to listen to Dance Away With Me by SEP but it’s not going very well. Not because I don’t like it but because I haven’t been into listening to audiobooks lately. I’m hoping that will change.


I’m still listening to the Lady Sherlock series by Sherry Thomas. I finished A Conspiracy in Belgravia and The Hollow of Fear, and I’m almost done with The Art of Theft. The stories are smart and well-written, and the narrator is wonderful. I’m really enjoying the series and the progression of the characters.

I reread Wildfire by Ilona Andrews, which made me want to read Emerald Blaze, which has been languishing in my TBR pile since before its release. I strangely wasn’t in the mood the few times I attempted to read it previously. I’m happy I pushed through this time because I really enjoyed it. I’m anxious for the third book.

I’m currently reading Heart on a Leash by Alanna Martin. It’s a cute small-town Alaska contemporary, with huskies! I’m liking it so far.


Well, I finished Wicked Fox by Kat Cho and enjoyed that one. I heard some mixed reviews on the book so I was kind of curious to see what I’d think and I’m glad to say that I enjoyed it. It was just like watching one of my Korean dramas so I was a happy camper. After finishing that book, I started reading Beast of Beswick by Amalie Howard but it’s been three days since I started it and I’ve only read the first chapter. I haven’t devoted much time to it yet since I’m distracted with this new K-pop You Tube channel but I plan on finishing it up over the weekend.

The plan for after Beast of Beswick is to read either A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas or Just Last Night by Mhairi McFarlane.

    I just finished Mia West’s INTO THE FIRE. It consists of eleven connected novellas & short stories that follow the decades long relationship between a blacksmith and a former soldier in the years immediately following the fall of Rome (late 5th century C.E.). An epic, immersive experience—I loved it!

      I own some of these books already so need to get to them, @DDD. The set you mentioned above is currently 99¢.

    Since last time ~

    — Finder (The Finder Chronicles Book 1) by Suzanne Palmer; this was recommended by the authors of one of my favorite series. I enjoyed it and plan to read on in the series.
    — The Sergeant’s Lady by Susanna Fraser which is the first historical romance that I’ve read in a while. I enjoyed it. It’s unusual in that the heroine is wealthy while the hero is a commoner.
    — Hunting by Andrea K Höst which I quite enjoyed. Unlike the author’s Touchstone series, this was fantasy rather than science fiction. (While I liked this, I don’t imagine this is a book I’ll be quick to reread as I did with the other series.) This book would be a fine read for teens as well as adults.
    — And All the Stars by Andrea Höst. I enjoyed this science fiction book (which had a surprising revelation at one point), but I also found it less straightforward than some of the author’s other books.
    — reread Stray (Touchstone Book 1) by Andrea K. Höst; thus far, the Touchstone series is my favorite of the books by Andrea Höst that I’ve read. I enjoyed this once again. (Just a reminder that this book is free to Kindle readers.)
    — and a good number of the hundreds of samples I have on my Kindle. I made a small dent but acquiring samples is much quicker than reading them!
