What Are You Reading? (577)

Posted August 20, 2021 by Casee in Features | 8 Comments


I received an ARC of Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson. Now I love A.L. Jackson so I was really looking forward to it. It blew my fucking mind. I finished it yesterday and it is one of the best books I’ve read all year. All the feels, good & bad. Happy & sad. I can’t wait to share my review with you guys.

Now I’m reading Pagan by Jessica Gadziala. I’m just all about the dark romances right now. I also decided to listen to Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. I just adore that series.


I read Portrait of Death: Unforgotten by Isabel Wroth, a paranormal romantic suspense. I didn’t love it. The suspense angle was pretty bad and the romance didn’t make a lot of sense to me. After that I re-read Spellbinder by Thea Harrison and Steadfast by Sarina Bowen.

I have no idea what to read next. I think I want a paranormal romance. Any suggestions?

    Over the past week ~

    — Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig for my local book group. This is the rare book group book which I really enjoyed. It’s set in the early fifties (mostly in the US west), but there were things that resonated with me: the westerns of German author Karl May were huge in this book and May was an author my Dutch father spoke of fondly; S & H green stamps figured in the book and my bedside lamps were purchased with those back in the day; and a character in the book was surprised to meet a family member with a glass eye which happened to me, too. This led to a fun discussion with my group.
    — reread one of my favorite series ~ Linesman (3 Book Series) by SK Dunstall.
    — a passel of samples on my Kindle.

      Oh Kareni—in 1975, when I was preparing to start college and go out into the big world, my mom gave me her entire hoard of S&H green stamps so I could get some luggage. I got a set of Samsonite suitcases which I used until 2017! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. (Yes, I’m old!)

        You are in good company, @DDD. There were fellow S&H green stamp users at the book group meeting last night as well as those who collected Blue Chip stamps. Fun memories!

    After “discovering” Claire Kingsley a few months ago, I’ve been on a glom of her backlist. I’ve been reading her seven-book Jetty Beach series. I’m on the fifth book now and so far my favorite is book #4, OPERATION GET HER BACK, a second-chance romance between a former marine with PTSD and the now-divorced woman he loved in high school.
