What Are You Reading? (521)

Casee: It’s self-quarantine Friday! I’m working hard trying to read, but I still have to do my actual job. I finished Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh and have started Alpha Night. I’m also still reading Lethal Game by Christine Feehan. I really need to finish that one up.

I’m listening to Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews, but I haven’t been in the car much so my listening time has been limited. I am really enjoying Andrea and am looking forward to getting back to it.

Holly: I’m working remotely as much as possible right now. I thought I’d be reading a ton, but it turns out it’s actually more time consuming to work from home. Who knew? I reread Fairytale Come Alive and Complicated by Kristen Ashley, and Wildfire by Ilona Andrews (yes, again..don’t judge me). That’s it. I really want to read Dragon Unleashed by Grace Draven, so I think I’m going to reread Phoenix Unbound, the first book, as a refresher. Wish me luck? I feel like I need it.

Rowena: Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’re all well and that you have toilet paper and water. With everything going on, not being able to leave the house and what not, you’d think that I would have read hella books but nope. I haven’t finished reading a damn thing this week. I’m watching movies and working from home. I’m also sending Ames and Holly funny memes and TikTok videos. But that’s it. I’ve started Love Hard by Nalini Singh but I’ve only read bits and pieces of it, in short spurts. My mind won’t slow down long enough to retain what I’m reading so I’m not even paying attention to what is going on. I hope this goes away because I want to read again. Wish me luck.

What are you reading this week? Any new favorites or books that drove you crazy? If you aren’t reading, what are you doing to stay sane during the quarantine? Share!

Casee: If anything good is coming out of this self-quarantine I’m in, it’s that I have an abundance of reading time. I’ve actually read two books in one week and am almost done with the third. I’m currently reading Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh. I don’t know why I didn’t read this book when it first came out. It’s a conundrum. I’m going to read Alpha Night next.

I’m also listening to Gunmetal Magic while working at home. Not sure how I feel about it yet. It’s about Kate’s best friend, Andrea. I’m sure it’ll come through because it’s Ilona Andrews.

Holly: I’ve been working my way through the Kate Daniels series. It’s been awhile since I read the series and Rowena has me binge-reading it. I read Magic Bleeds, Magic Slays, Magic Rises, Magic Breaks, Magic Shifts, Magic Binds and Magic Triumphs. I’m currently reading Iron and Magic.

Now that I’m working from home and things have slowed down, I hope to have more reading time. We’ll see how it goes.

Rowena: It’s been a slow reading week for me because I’m in self-quarantine and instead of reading, I’ve been kicking my family’s ass in Sequence and Five Crowns and getting my ass kicked in Take Two. There’s a lot of family board game nights and staying home and washing hands but I did manage to finish Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs and will start The Orchid Thorne by Jeffe Kennedy. That’s about it for me. I plan on finishing up some review books before jumping back into the Kate Daniels series. I already miss my Kate Daniels friends. Haha.

Casee: I just finished Shadow Flight by Christine Feehan a few minutes ago. I really enjoyed it. I love Taviano Ferraro. I’m also reading Lethal Game by Christine Feehan. I’m about to start Knight Awakening by Rebecca Zanetti. I am so
excited for that one.

I started listening to The Boy I Grew Up with by Tijan on audio, but I wasn’t feeing the narrators. I’m planning on reading it instead of listening to it. I’m now listening to The Deal by Stella Gray. She is a new-to-me author and so far it’s interesting.

Holly: I had a slow reading week. I said I was going to read all the books while on vacation, but I didn’t. We ended up being too busy. I listened to Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper on the plane, DNF’d the audio of Satisfaction Guaranteed by Lauren Blakely and read Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs. I just finished a re-read of Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews. That’s it for the past two weeks.

I’m currently reading The Orchid Throne by Jeffe Kennedy.

Casee: I’m reading Lethal Game by Christine Feehan. I haven’t gotten very far into it, but it’s really good so far. After I finish this one up, I’m going to go back and read the Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas. I’m on vacation next week and I’m going to read alllll the books.

I’m listening to Lover by Penelope Sky. It’s the third book in her Betrothed series and I am highly enjoying it. I knew this series would get better. I’m glad I waited it out.

Holly: I finished Strange Love by ann Aguirre. While not my favorite of her books I did enjoy it. I also read Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas and The Lady in Coppergate Tower by Nancy Campbell Allen. I really enjoyed both.

I reread White Hot and Wildfire by Ilona Andrews.

I’m on vacation next week and fully intend to read all the books. Wish me luck.

Rowena: It took me a lot longer to listen/read Devious Lies by Parker S. Huntington and it helped that book club was postponed until this coming Monday because that book pissed me off at every turn so I kept putting it down. The hero was a fucking dickhead that did absolutely nothing for me. I stayed pissed the entire time and even after the hero stops being an ass, I still didn’t care for the story, the characters and just…everything. So that’s a 1 star read. After that, I read Strange Love by Ann Aguirre for my budy read with Ames and Holly. Like Holly, it wasn’t my favorite book but I didn’t hate it. It was very different from what I normally read but even so, I liked it.

Now, I’m finishing up Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews and will be jumping right into Magic Bleeds. I’m back in the Kate Daniels world and I’m so happy about that.

Holly: I finished my re-read of the Study series by Maria V. Snyder with Magic Study and Fire Study. Fire Study didn’t hold up as well as the previous two books, but I’m glad I read the entire series. I’m currently listening to The Lady in the Coppergate Tower by Nancy Campbell Allen and I’m reading Strange Love by Ann Aguirre.

Rowena: It’s been a pretty good reading week for me. I read One Last Chance by Therese Beharrie and Forbidden Promises by Synithia Williams. Now, I’m reading Strange Love by Ann Aguirre for my buddy read with Ames and Holly and I’m listening to my book club book, Devious Lies by Parker S. Huntington. After this, I’m going to jump into Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews and I can’t wait.
