What Are You Reading? (+ Opal Carew Giveaway)

Posted June 28, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 8 Comments

Casee: I finished Archangel’s War by Nalini Singh last night. It slayed me. The Guild Hunter series is by far my favorite series out there. I read the first page of Lionheart by Thea Harrison last night so I think I’m going to go with that next.

I’m listening to Complicated by Kristen Ashley. It’s the first KA book I’ve listened to on audio and I’m really enjoying it so far. I listened to Hot Asset by Lauren Layne on audio this week and really enjoyed the narrators. I’m not sure about the series yet. I did love the hero.

Holly: I had a great reading week. I reread some Mercy Thompson books this week because of Rowena. Night Broken, Fire Touched and Silence Fallen. That series is so great. I haven’t decided if I’ll read Storm Cursed again or move on to something different…but I’ll probably read Storm Cursed again. I also re-read Sustained and Sidebarred by Emma Chase. That book (and novella) is so good. I love Jake and the McQuaid kids.

For new reads, I finished listening to The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely, then immediately started Come As You Are, the next book in the series. I really enjoyed The Knocked Up Plan, but I loved Come As You Are. I started Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan for our Summer Reading Challenge, but I wasn’t in the mood for something heavy, so I set it aside in favor of Hot Asset by Lauren Layne. I liked that one enough that I started Hard Sell, book 2 in the series, as soon as I finished. Both were good, but I enjoyed Hard Sell a bit more.

I haven’t decided if I’m going to finish the 21 Wall Street series and read book 3, Huge Deal, next, or if I’m going to read something else. I’ll probably listen to Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs and read Marry Me by Jo Goodman.

Rowena: First of all, read Huge Deal, Holly. Haha. Alright, on to my reading week. Like Holly, I had a really great reading week and that makes me happy since the last couple of weeks have been really rough. Again, like Holly, I read Night Broken, Fire Touched and am finishing up Silence Fallen. I’m really glad that I read Night Broken with Holly because we had a really good discussion afterward and I’m super glad that the next book was already downloaded and ready to be read on my kindle since I was not a happy camper after finishing Night Broken. Not because it wasn’t good but because I was sorely disappointed in Adam and his pack and I needed him to make things better already.

I should be finished with Silence Fallen by lunchtime here in Southern California and immediately after, I plan on starting Storm Cursed. One of my goals for the reading year was to finish some of the series that I’ve been reading ever so slowly and Mercy Thompson was at the top of that list. The next series that I will be tackling is Kate Daniels and I can’t wait for that.

    I’m just about to start Passion on Park avenue by Lauren Layne. Looks good 🙂 thanks for sharing such a fun book!

    It sounds as though it’s been a good reading week for most of us. I read more this week than last. I’ll be back tomorrow with my list.

    Recent reads ~

    — The Bride Test by Helen Hoang which I enjoyed despite some quibbles.
    — Blood of the Earth by Faith Hunter. I’d read several books in the author’s Jane Yellowrock series, but I preferred this and expect to read on in the series.
    — Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey which kept me up late reading. Those of you who like mystery and magic might like this; I did.
    — Fluency (Confluence Book 1) by Jennifer Foehner Wells. It was a pleasant read but not a book I expect to reread. I don’t intend to continue with the series at this time.
    — I did not finish a book that I won in a Goodreads giveaway. In its defense, I’ll say that it’s vocabulary enriching as one of the characters is a logophile who carries around a dictionary. That is one of the few things I can say in its defense; the book in question is Solipsism by Noel Luis Nuñez.

    This week I read Diane Les Becquets’s THE LAST WOMAN IN THE FOREST—a psychological suspense novel about a woman who begins to suspect that her late fiancé was a serial killer. For the most part, I had given up psychological suspense for a couple of years because I felt the entire genre was about “punishing” women for loving/trusting the wrong person, but TLWITF is well-written with beautiful descriptions of nature (the heroine is a wildlife researcher and dog trainer) and a gradual escalation of tension as all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. I recommend it—with the caution that there are a number of violent scenes.
