Casee: I am over Maya Banks. Like seriously over. I finished Keep Me Safe earlier this week, but it was hard. Really hard. I’m told that I still need to read the McCabe trilogy, but that won’t be anytime soon. So a few days ago I told Holly that I really can’t wait until The Savior (BDB #17) by J.R. Ward comes out. And I hate that I can’t wait for it. We agreed that everyone has their book crack. Hers is Kristen Ashley. We both decided that I need to give KA a try, so last night I read the first two pages of Own the Wind (Chaos #1). I’m looking forward to getting further into it today.
I’ve listened to several audiobooks this week. Today I’m listening to Say You’re Sorry by Karen Rose. I was so incredibly impressed with the narrator of Monster in the Closet, so I was really looking forward to listening to SRS. Unfortunately, this narrator is really, really weak. Actually, not just weak. Awful. Yep, the narrator is awful. Still, I’m plugging along. I always forget how much I enjoy KR.
Holly: I started listening to Anne Bishop’s The Others series over the weekend with Tracy. We listened to Written in Red, Murder of Crows and Vision in Silver together. I just finished Marked in Flesh, the fourth book, and started Etched in Bone, the 5th. This series is so amazing. I remembered loving it, but I hadn’t remembered just how much I loved it. I’m glad to be doing a reread before I read Wild Country, which comes out in March. The narrator for the audiobooks is amazing. Generally with longer audiobooks I listen and read, but in this case I just want to listen.
Prior to starting Written in Red, I was listening to Dirty by Kylie Scott. The audiobook seemed to be taking me forever, so I switched to reading around the 3/4 mark. Sadly that book didn’t work for me on a number of levels. The heroine made a lot of questionable decisions and the hero was a jerk for the majority of the book. I don’t think I’ll be continuing the series.
Rowena: I’m not in a reading slump per se, but I’m not reading all that much right now. I’m just not in the mood. I’m watching basketball, watching Star and working on blog projects instead of reading. I did finish Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry though and I really enjoyed it. I also started Bad Bachelor by Stefanie London but I haven’t gotten very far into it and I’m on day 3, I need to get it together already. Wish me luck!
