What Are You Reading? (572)

I finished Last Guard by Nalini Singh this week and absolutely loved it. I’m reading Killer by Jessica Gadziala. It was the first book I picked up by this author and I’m glad I put it down and read in order. I have so much love for Shooter and can’t wait for him to get his happy ending.

I’m trying to get excited about listening to Eternal by Lisa Scottoline. It’s for book club, but I just can’t muster up any excitement.


I finished The Unseen and then read The Adversary by Thea Harrison. I really enjoyed both, and I’m so glad the author didn’t stretch it out over four or five books as she initially intended. Dragos and Pia. <3

I found A Little Green Magic by Isabel Wroth while browsing my KU recommendations, and found it to be really cute. The first 40% or so was just okay, but it really picked up in the second half. This was a full HEA novel, but I immediately read the second book, A Little Dark Magic, afterward, since I was dying to know what happened with the next couple. I ended up enjoying it more than the first and I hope the author continues the series soon.

I like to listen to audiobooks while I’m on my commute, working, or doing household tasks, but lately I haven’t had the brainpower to focus on something new. I ended up listening to the first three Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews, a series I’ve listened to many times before. Clean Sweep, Sweep in Peace and One Fell Sweep, then read Sweep of the Blade and Sweep with Me. I really hope we get another book soon.

After that I listened to Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper, and started Ain’t She a Peach. This is another series I really like. The narrator is fabulous. If you haven’t, I recommend listening to the audiobooks. They’re very well done.

I tried reading The Redemption of Boaz Pritchard by Hailey Edwards, but I’m not ready to see him redeemed yet. I’m still too mad at him for what he did to Grier in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series. I set that aside in favor of Everlong, the first book in the Daughters of Askara series by Hailey Edwards. I’m very early into it, but enjoying it so far.

    Over the past week ~

    — continued the science fiction series I’d been reading and finished Captain’s Share and Owner’s Share by Nathan Lowell; I enjoyed both.
    — State of Wonder: A Novel by Ann Patchett for my local book group. What an interesting story!
    — Upside Down by N.R. Walker. I enjoyed this contemporary romance featuring two asexual men, but I don’t think I’ll be quick to reread it.
    — My summer reading program challenged me to read a book about art, so I reread Making Art from Maps by Jill K. Berry; it’s a fascinating book to read or browse.
    — For the final challenge of my summer reading program, I read the graphic novel ~ No Ivy League by Hazel Newlevant. It was interesting but felt as though it was trying a bit too hard.

    I’ve been on a bit of an Amelia Wilde glom recently. While I’ve been waiting for the final book in her very dark Beauty & the Beast trilogy (SECRET BEAST, HIDDEN BEAUTY, FALLEN ROSE), I read the first book of another trilogy, DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA—which was extremely dark and I’m not sure I’ll read the other two books. I also read Wilde’s 2018 Wounded Hearts trilogy (BEFORE SHE WAS MINE, AFTER I WAS HIS, and WHEN HE SAW ME) about three veterans each of whom bears physical and emotional scars from an IED explosion. Although the nature of the men’s situations is challenging, the three romances are quite a bit “lighter” than Wilde’s more recent work.
