I can’t believe I’m getting this post done on a Sunday afternoon! That’s almost a miracle for me lately. 🙂
Hope you’re all well. All’s well here. I managed to avoid 2 other “Stupid Ass Things
” for the week. The bang cutting I think took precedence and I avoided the other two. Either that or they’re delayed! lol
Have you all seen the book cover for Carolyn Crane’s (aka our own wonderful CJ from The Thrillionth Page
) book Mind Games
that comes out on March 23 2010?
Isn’t it gorgeous?? I love it and I can’t wait to read her books!
Ok – on to what I read this week:
I started with To Seduce A Sinner by Elizabeth Hoyt
. This book 2 in the Legend of the Four Soldiers series but I didn’t read book 1 first. I certainly didn’t feel like I was missing anything that’s for sure. I decided to try and read some of the DIK books that others had brought to the island. I chose this one after reading Renee’s quick blurb
about it and I’m so glad I did. It was a wonderful story of love and healing and I will definitely be getting the next books in this series. Thanks Renee! 4.5 out of 5
Next up was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
. You can read my thoughts here
. Good book! 5 out of 5
After that I read Wolfbreed by S.A. Swann
. I had started this book last week but put it down when it was just dragging for me. It ended up being a pretty good read once I got past the first 100 pages but I didn’t love it. It was very descriptive of blood and gore – it definitely didn’t shy from descriptions of massacres and that’s a tad off-putting to me. 3.5 out of 5
A novella was next called Screen Shots: Seduced by Willa Okati
. This one was recommended by Tam and it was a cute little read. It had a tad more “I love you, man” in it than I generally care for but I liked it. 3.5 out of 5
After that I read Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger for review on The Book Binge. I will let you know when my review posts in case you’d like to read it.
My Tracy’s TBR Challenge Read for the week (yes, I almost forgot to do one!) was You Slay Me by Katie McAlister. My friend Jen gave this entire series to me about 2 years ago and there is has sat. I finally decided to pick one up and it I liked it. I thought that the heroine, Aisling, was a huge bumbling idiot and did some completely retarded things but overall the story held my interest and I read it quite quickly. Since I have the rest of the series I’ll read the next book and see what I think. If Aisling is too much of a bumbler I’ll call it quits but I’ll give it a chance. Has anyone read this series and if so what did you think? 3.75 out of 5
