5/16, What Are You Reading? (7)

Posted May 17, 2010 by Holly in Features | 7 Comments

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?)

It’s 5/2, What Are You Reading?

Holly: It’s another week and time for another What Are You Reading post. My reading this last week has been pretty freaking sad. I’m in the middle of about four books I just can’t seem to get into. I bought a ton of books at Borders yesterday, however, so I’m hoping one of them will bust this slump.

Casee: I’m reading Wild Fire by Christine Feehan. I’m less than 10 pages in and the phrase “for all time” has been used at least a handful of times. Which is okay, b/c I’m always going to be a Christine Feehan fangirl.

Rowena: I’m in a great reading frenzy right now.  I finished reading Tempt Me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas, started When It Happens by Susane Colasanti and thought that book was super cute and then started and finished Storm Watch by Jill Shalvis and adored that book as well.  I’m fishing through my books trying to see what I’m going to read next and I’m thinking I’m going to hold off on reading Haunting Warrior by Erin Quinn until tomorrow since I forgot that book at work and was too lazy to go all the way out to Seal Beach to retrieve it.  But I’m geared and ready to go!  Lots of fun reading for me this week.  I hope it leads me into this next reading week as well because I’m on a roll.

So now you know what we’re reading…what are YOU reading this week?

It’s April 25th…What Are You Reading? (5)

Posted April 25, 2010 by Rowena in Features | 10 Comments

Rowena: This week I didn’t read as much as I wanted to read but I’m stressed and had other things on my mind.  I just finished Nothing But Trouble by the great Rachel Gibson and adored it.  I thought it was such a cute story and I  can’t wait to review it for you guys.  Last night, I started A Lady’s Guide to Improper Behavior by Suzanne Enoch and so far, it’s good.  The hero is broken down from war and is grumpy and what not.  He’s totally reminding me of Mark Bresseler from Nothing But Trouble.  I’m on a roll with the hurt hero thing going on but I’m not complaining.

Holly: I’m visiting Northern California as part of an extended weekend away, so I haven’t had much time to read. I get really carsick which means no reading in the car. It really sucks since this is an 8+ hour trip, one way. So much wasted reading time!

Anyway, before I left I started reading Ten Things I Love About You by Julia Quinn. For those of you who read What Happens in London you’ll recognize Sebastian as Harry’s best friend. I’m only about 2 chapters in, but I really like what I’ve read so far. Yesterday I spent some time out by the pool and started reading Hannah’s List by Debbie Macmober (check back tomorrow for a chance to win a copy). I only read a few chapters (I chose to nap instead of reading..scandalous, I know) but I found myself really drawn in.

I have some downtime today so hopefully I’ll be able to get some quality reading time in.

Casee: I’m reading the Idiot’s Guide to Getting Back at Your BFF. I’m reading it to find creative ways to get back at Holly for visiting Norcal AFTER I moved away from it. In between reading that, I’ve been reading Christy Reece‘s latest trilogy. I’m reading the last book in the series right now. Last Chance is the book I’ve been waiting for and so far I haven’t been disappointed in McKenna. The hero did just do something that pissed me off, but I’m going to see if he can redeem himself.

So, what are you reading?
