It’s been a hellova reading week. I read A LOT this week – I’m not quite sure how that happened actually, but it did. I left work early on Thursday and only worked 2 hours Friday because of a killer headache (that I still have)…and the drugs the doc injected me with kept me up most of the night on Friday so I’ve had mucho reading time.
One of my good friends, Andrew, got married today. Andrew and Beth have been together for 10 years. That’s right, 10 years! He finally popped the question and it was about damn time! lol Talk about an age difference…he just turned 50 in July and she’s 29! Of course he looks and acts like he’s about 35 so it all works out. Such a cute couple.
So my goal this past week was to read a ton of RAW authors as it’s only 4 weeks away. Ask me how that went. Not good! I read 1 book. 1! Geesh! I really need to work on that this week.
Oh and due to sheer, unadulterated laziness and severe pain in my head..no links will be available this week! But I still lubs ya!
The Pregnancy Test by Erin McCarthy was first. My only RAW author book. Cute book…see review a couple of posts back.
Countdown (Shomi) by Michelle Maddox. Good book. I won’t go into detail..you’ll just have to check out my review this week (sometime) on Book Binge.
Kill Me Twice by Roxanne St. Claire. I wanted to read one of her books since she’ll be guest blogging on DIK this week (Mon, Tues, Wed) and I hadn’t read her work. I liked it. I’ll probably read more of her stuff in the future…when the TBR goes down some. Stop laughing!! It’ll happen.
Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs a novella in the On The Prowl Anthology was next. I’ve been seeing this around and hearing how good it was so I wanted to check it out. Very good story. It was a great introduction to Cry Wolf which is the 1st novel in Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series.
Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs was really good. I plan on doing a review this week of this book so check back. 🙂
I then read the remainder of the stories in the On The Prowl anthology. (see book cover above) Besides Alpha and Omega I really didn’t care all that much for the other 3 stories – they weren’t bad, just not my thing.
InHuman by Eileen Wilks was ok. There was a lot of info being given but I really didn’t feel like I knew the characters by the time the story was done. This was an intro into a series (I think) but it didn’t make me want to read more.
Buying Trouble by Karen Chance was a cute little novella about a 1/2 human, 1/2 Fae that doesn’t know that’s what she is. She gets jiggy with another 1/2er and turns into something she would have never imagined. I think I’ll check out Karen Chance’s work to see what else she’s got going on since this was my first read of hers.
Mona Lisa Betwining by Sunny. Not a fan of this story. The heroine’s got too many freakin lovers…she’s got serious issues in so many other things and doesn’t know what the hell’s going on. The series is not something I’d want to be reading more of.
I won the novella Oh, George by Christiane France this week. This is an m/m romance about a man who’s inherited his dad’s business and a man from the secretarial pool. I didn’t feel like I could get into the characters enough during the novella and they fell in love really fast.
Last was Just One Bite by Kimberly Raye. The Dead End Dating series is weird and quirky and I like it for a fun little read. For any of you who read the series I just love Ty Bonner and there just wasn’t enough of him in this book! lol I needed more Ty! It was a nice edition to the series and I liked it.
