What Are You Reading, 5/31

Posted May 31, 2010 by Holly in Features | 6 Comments

Holly: I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by. It’s almost summer already! I’m still in a slump. I read a couple books last week, but I’m not reading as much as I normally do. Yesterday I finally finished 10 Things I Love About You by Julia Quinn. It was really cute and I enjoyed it, but it isn’t her best novel.

Last night I started When Marrying A Scoundrel by Kathryn Smith. I’m about halfway through and so far it’s really good. I really like the “married couple reunites” trope and Smith is doing a credible job of it here. If I hadn’t been so wiped out last night I would have stayed up to read it. As it happens, I plan to finish it today.

Rowena: I’m happy to say that I think I’m finally out of my reading slump because I’ve been on a little reading spree. This week I’ve read a total of 6 books which included, My Soul to Save and My Soul to Lose (short story) by Rachel Vincent, Kiss Me if You Can by Carly Phillips, The Boys Next Door and Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols and I just finished Christie Ridgway’s Crush on You. That last book annoyed the snot out of me and you’ll read why in my review which will be posted soon. Right now, I’m getting ready to start or well, actually finish Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elekeles. So yeah, that’s what I’ve been reading this week. I’m going to go ahead and head back to it. Keep this reading frenzy going. Happy Reading!

Casee: I just finished Married by Morning by Lisa Kleypas. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for Beatrix’s book. I think I’m going to stick with historicals for now. Either Meredith Duran or Celeste Bradley. I can’t decide.  Lisa Kleypas always puts me in the mood for historicals, but nothing I read is quite as good.  This is only the second book I’ve read in a week.  Pathetic!

What Are You Reading – 5/23

Casee: It’s that time again. Every Sunday I find myself wondering where in the world the weekend went. On this particular Sunday, I have to say that it didn’t go to reading. Which is a bummer.

I’ve found myself up in the air when it comes to reading. I’ll start a book, but then lose interest. That happened with Marked by Elisabeth Naughton. I know she’s a good author and I have enjoyed her books in the past, but it just wasn’t keeping my interest. So I decided to try Cold Sight by Leslie Parrish. I’m really enjoying it so far. Then again, I’m only two chapters in.

Holly: My reading isn’t much improved from last week. I did read a couple novels – Tessa Dare’s upcoming release, One Dance with a Duke, and the first book in Jodi Thomas’ new contemporary trilogy, Welcome to Harmony (both authors are guest blogging this coming week) – but that’s about it. The good news is that both books were fabulous.

Today I read A Safe Harbor by Moira Rogers. It’s a prequel of sorts to her Sanctuary series. It’s set in the depression era and I really enjoyed it, though I was a bit disappointed that more attention wasn’t given to the time period. (I’m going to have contest details here soon about how you can enter to win a Kindle – or a $250 gift certificate to another book store – thanks to Moira Rogers).

I’m hoping my reading will pick up this week. Wish me luck, would you?

Rowena: This is the second straight weekend where I haven’t gotten very much reading done. I blame Brenna’s basketball. She’s had weekend tournaments both weekends about thirty minutes away from home and we’ve had game after game after game so I’ve been busy with that. I’m still reading Darker Than Night by Kim Lenox. I have no idea why it’s taking me so long to read this book because when I’m reading it, I’m liking it but when I put it down, I drag my feet to pick it back up again.

Ugh, I hope this slight reading slump doesn’t last any longer because I was on such a roll. Ugh.

What about you guys? What are you guys reading right now? Anything good that we should know about?

5/16, What Are You Reading?

Holly: I have to say, I’m a little freaked out. I only read one book all week, and it was a novella. I guess I’m still living in Slumpville. Sad, right?

Burning UpThe novella I read? Where There Be Monsters by Meljean Brook. It will be released in the Burning Up anthology along with stories by Nalini Singh, Angela Knight and Virginia Kantra.

It’s no secret that I love Brook’s Guardian series and this novella goes to show she can do Steampunk just as well. It was lovely. I can’t wait for The Iron Duke, book 2, to come out in October.

Rowena: I’m not exactly in a slump but it’s taken me a while to get through one of the books that I was looking forward to reading. I finished it a couple of days ago and it got a whole lot better once I got past that beginning hump and I’m looking forward to starting the second book. Oh, that book is The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. Last night, I started Darker than Night by Kim Lenox because I really enjoyed the second book in that series that I read. It started off okay but I’m hopeful that it’ll get better.

Casee: I’m reading Still the One by Robin Wells. The heroine is driving me crazy because she feels bad about having feels for another man when her husband has been dead for 2 years. And she still has his shit on his nightstand and his clothes in the closet. (Holly: WTF?)
