Miscellaneous Friday Post

Posted March 13, 2009 by Tracy in Reviews | 10 Comments

It’s been a strange week. Work has been all kinds of busy and since I’ve been doing so much computer work it’s put me off getting onto the computer at night – which sucks. There have actually been a couple of nights this week that I haven’t even gotten on to check my email. gasp

So not wanting to spend too much time on the computer puts a huge cabosh onto writing reviews. I’ve read some really good books this week but I’ve just not been motivated to review them. I did hop on last night and went on a tiny little shopping spree for ebooks. As. If. I. Don’t. Have. Enough. Seriously people, I have issues. But I think got some great books:

Shaken and Stirred by Kathleen O’Reilly – I read Christine’s review on this in January and have wanted to read it.

Triple Threat by Jennifer LaBrecque – it was free on the eharlequin.com site so I went for it. What the heck.

Diary of Cozette by Amanda McIntyre – I read Barbara’s review and Amy’s reveiw and couldn’t resist.

It Happend One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas – this was the only one in the series I didn’t already have and I couldn’t go any further without it so that’s excuse enough for me.

Angels’ Pawn by Nalini Singh – I should have gotten this before I read Angels’ Blood since it was released first but I just didn’t. I can’t wait to read this prequel.

Amber Eyes by Maya Banks – I love shifter stories and this sounds pretty darned good. Hope it is.

Polar Reaction by Claire Thompson – after reading the blurb on DIK recently I added it to the pile. How could I pass up m/m/m? Ok I could have, but I chose not to. So sue me. 🙂

Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins – I loved Too Good To Be True so wanted to read more of her books. This one seems to be a fan favorite.

Addicted by Charlotte Featherstone. I picked this one up at the last Blogger Get-Together and then put the darned thing down again. Then I read a great review and kicked myself for not buying it. That being said I do have some reservations about the story. I’m not big on 2 people in love finding solace in another person’s bed. However, if it’s written well I can deal with it so hopefully this is one that will prove to be worth the purchase.

So my biggest problem now is figuring out what to read first. It’s not like I don’t have 200 other books to read but still. What? Stop laughing!

Oh, and my review for A Toy for Two by Jennifer Cole went up on The Book Binge on Wednesday. You can check it out here if you’re interested.

Happy Friday and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I’ve been in a reading funk lately. Maybe I should buy some more books? 🙂

    Oh, I got that Triple Threat free the other day too. I hope you like Cozette’s story. I loved it! I still have to read Addicted.

  2. Hey, Tracy. I hope you enjoy Addicted and The Diary of Cozette. Two of my favorite reads this year 🙂

    Oh and of course Lisa Kleypas just rocks!

  3. Hmmm… Triple Threat is free? Heading over when I get home to check that out.
    ~Shaken and Stirred was great. The whole trilogy rocked.
    ~Kleypas? Well, it’s Kleypas!
    ~I forget where I read the review of Amber Eyes. Was it Blanche’s? Anyway, this went on my TBR also.
    ~And Polar Reaction. I read this a couple nights ago. I think you’ll like it. There were a few things that bothered me, but overall I thought it was really well done.

    Great haul!

  4. Great haul, Tracy.
    I hope you like Shaken and Stirred! That’s a great little series… I really enjoyed it.

    I’m also intrigued by Diaries of Cozette–I can’t wait for your thoughts.

    And of course, the Kristan Higgins book, too! 🙂

    Happy Reading!

  5. Amy – I'm sorry to hear that. Nothing appealing to you so you don't want to pick anything up or the books you're reading just not doin it for you?

    Barbara – I hope I do too! lol
    Yes, Kleypas rocks!

    Lori – yep – totally free. 🙂
    Yes, Blanche! THAT'S where I saw the Amber Eyes thing – couldn't remember. Oy, I'm getting old.
    I'll have to talk to you about Polar Reaction after I'm done and see what you didn't like about it.

    KB – I think I'll like it just as much as the first – crossing fingers.

    Jenre – lol

    Christine – I've looked for S & S several times in the store but they just never had it so I finally had to give in and buy it in ebook format. At least I've saved on shelf space – which I have no more of!
    I'm intrigued by the Diary of Cozette as well – even though I know it's not a straight romance which are usually the ones I go for. 🙂

  6. I’m trying Higgins myself. Although I’m not in a contemp frame of mind. Ditto what others have said about the O’Reilly book. That series was great. SEX STRAIGHT UP the second book is great.

  7. I've seen the Cozette & Addicted books, but haven't picked up either. Might have to reconsider. Reading a non-romance right now.

    The Autumn book is my least favorite by LK, but like Barbara said, it's Kleypas, so even her worst is still good.
