I finished The Art of Theft by Sherry Thomas, which I enjoyed, though it wasn’t my favorite of the Lady Sherlock books and Heart on a Leash by Alanna Martin, which didn’t work quite as well for me.

I read Beast of Beswick by Amelie Howard for our book club, which was a pretty solid read. Not great, but good. I listened to the first two books in the Gemini Series by Hailey Edwards, Dead in the Water and Head Above Water. This is an off-shoot of another series I didn’t read, but set in the same world as The Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy. I enjoyed both books enough to start the third, Hell or High Water. I also finished Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs, which was so good. That ending!!

I haven’t decided what to read next.

I started reading Beast of Beswick by Amelie Howard, stopped reading it because it wasn’t grabbing me so I started reading the new Patricia Briggs but I couldn’t really concentrate on it because of some personal stuff that popped off for one of my friends so I’m distracted with worry and sympathy for my friend. I’m back to reading Beast of Beswick by Amelie Howard because I need to finish that book before this weekend’s monthly zoom call with my book girlfriends. Wish me luck!

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.

This last week has not been a good reading week for me. I’m not sure I’m in a slump exactly, but I have been so indecisive about what book to start. I go back and forth between Rock Chick Renegade by Kristen Ashley, Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley, and Killer by Jessica Gadziala. Or maybe Still Standing which is a new book out by Kristen Ashley. Sigh.

I was going to listen to What I did for Love by SEP, but I just realized that I’ve already read it. That’s how my February is going. I want to listen to another SEP book, but I don’t know which one. Any recommendations?

I finished the Court of Moonlight and Destruction series by K.M. Shea. Last week I read book one, and this week I read books two and three, Crown of Moonlight and The Queen’s Crown. Crown of Moonlight was my favorite of the three, but I enjoyed The Queen’s Crown as well. I discovered a new author this week in Juliette Cross. I read Wolf Gone Wild and really enjoyed it. I’ve been craving PNR lately and this was just what I was looking for. I’m looking forward to reading more from her backlist.

I listened to A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas and started the second book, A Conspiracy in Belgravia. I really love the girl power in this series.

I’m not reading much this week. After I finished The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan, I started Wicked Fox by Kat Cho and so far, I haven’t read much in it. I was distracted by first My Mister and now, Reply 1988. Both of these dramas are really good. I’m hoping to finish Wicked Fox this weekend though (I’m not a football person so it’s just a regular ass weekend for me, haha). After Wicked Fox, I plan on jumping into The Beast of Beswick by Amelie Howard.

Things have been pretty crazy for me this week and I haven’t had a lot of reading time. I re-read a couple books. I listened to a short story by Rainbow Rowell called The Prince and The Troll (which was well written but didn’t seem to have a purpose as a story) and read Crown of Shadows by K.M. Shea, but that’s pretty much it. I’m really looking forward to having some downtime this weekend so I can read.

Things are being shuffled around in my department at work so I’ve been cross-training my coworkers on my job and learning theirs so that we can make the transition on Monday more smoothly. So, I’ve been busy with a lot of learning and working but I did manage to finish The Roommate by Rosie Danan and I enjoyed it. The chemistry between Josh and Clara was fun and the story itself was great so I was happy with that. Right now, I’m reading the next book in that series (it’s a series right? Cause the book that I’m reading now is Josh’s ex-girlfriend’s book) The Intimacy Experiment and though my reading is going slowly, I’m enjoying what is happening. An ex-porn star and a Jewish rabbi? Alrighty then! 🙂

I’ve been reading by butt off lately. I’m reading Monster by Jessica Gadziala. This is a new-to-me author that I’m enjoying thus far. I’ve read that she’s very Kristen Ashley-esque & I have to agree.

I’m listening to Lick by Kylie Scott which I am liking a lot. I was hoping to finish it by today but haven’t had time to listen to it. I also listened to Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh which was amazing.

I’m re-reading The Others series by Anne Bishop this week. I started listening to them on audio and have been switching back and forth between reading. I finished Written in Red, Murder of Crows, Vision in Silver and Marked in Flesh. I’m about halfway through Etched in Bone. I didn’t intend to read the whole series, but it’s hard to stop after the first one. I haven’t decided if I’ll read the next two books (which are set in the same world but about different places) or not. I guess I’ll see how I feel when I finish this book.

Happy Friday! I’ve been so busy with a lot of things going on at work so my reading hasn’t been too hot. I did finish reading the first short story in Training Camp by Wesley King and it was a pretty solid beginning to the entire story. I’ll be making slow progress through this book and will read the next story next month since I’m reading that with my friends. I also started The Roommate by Rosie Danan and so far, I’m really enjoying it. I’m hoping to get that one finished up over the weekend. After that, I’ll be jumping into The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan.
