What Are You Reading? (569)

Casee: I’m still binging Jessica Gadziala. I finished Mark last night & started Eli. I love the Mallick Brothers.

I’m going to be in the car for awhile today so I’m going to listen to a couple books. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig & possibly Gypsy King by Devney Perry.

Holly: After I finished Married by Morning, I decided I was finished binge-reading Lisa Kleypas. I reread the Alpha & Omega novella by Patricia Briggs, and then I hit a wall. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to read. I read several samples and started several books before I finally settled on Don’t Hex and Drive by Juliette Cross, the second book in her Stay a Spell series. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the first book in the series, Wolf Gone Wild. Then I read Spellbound After Midnight by Jenna Collett, the first book in the Ever Dark, Ever Deadly series (currently available on Kindle Unlimited), which was pretty good. Kind of campy in places, but well written. I finished Shifters in the Night by Molly Harper on audio. I liked it, but not as much as the other books in the series.

Rowena: Ugh, sorry guys. I’m late to the party this week even though I swore to get this posted today (and on time), sigh. Anyway, this week has been a pretty busy week for me since my daughter starts working with my company on Monday and I’ve been answering non-stop questions from her and helping her get situated and prepared for her first day.

I did get some reading done though. Last week, I read Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase (good re-read though I didn’t like Dain as much this time around), I also read Worth Any Price by Lisa Kleypas since my book besties were reading it too and enjoyed that one as well. Now, I’m reading The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary because I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages now. So far, it’s pretty good and I’m hoping to get it done sometime this weekend. We’ll see how that goes though.

What are you reading this week? Any new favorites or books that drove you crazy? Share!

    I’m reading CD Reiss’s MAFIA KING; it’s the second book of her DiLustro Arrangement trilogy. The hero is annoying me because he will not tell the heroine everything she needs to know and just tells her, “Trust me and do as I say.” Arrgghh! But I think Reiss expects the reader to be exasperated with the hero…she’s too smart a writer not to have a reason for making the hero the way he is.

    • Mafia romances are pretty popular right now, huh? I’ve seen them all over BookTok but I must admit that I haven’t been the slightest bit interested in trying one for myself. That hero sounds like I’d want to kick him in the balls if I were to read that book. Hmm..still, happy reading!

    Since last week ~

    — Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman for my local book group. I’ve seen this book on lists of uplifting reads; however, I found it a fairly dark read with an optimistic ending. It also has a revelation near the ending which came as a total surprise to me.
    — a lovely graphic novel … lovely visually and in content: The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.
    — Outlawed by Anna North which I enjoyed. I’d describe this as an alternative history feminist western.
    — Deductions, Derivation, and Divergence by Lyn Gala, the first three books in Lyn Gala’s Aberrant Magic series. I enjoyed them all and would happily read on.

    • I’ve heard of the Eleanor Oliphant book and was pretty interested in it myself but then it slipped right off my radar. Is it worth purchasing?

      You read a lot of authors that I’m not familiar with, I should probably check some of them out. I’m always stuck on the authors that I already know and love, without branching out much. I need to change that.

      Have a great weekend, Kareni!

        Thank you, Rowena.

        As regards Eleanor Oliphant, it was a good read but it’s not a book I can imagine rereading. I’m grateful I could borrow it from the library.
