I am currently reading Annihilation Road (Torpedo Ink #6) by Christine Feehan. After I finish this one, I’m going to start Savage Road (Torpedo Ink #7). I’m also listening to The Secret by Julie Garwood. It’s like reading it for the first time because the narrator is so amazing.

Audible Plus has a new feature. When an audiobook finishes, another recommended read from the collection autoplays. That’s how I ended up listening to Hot Asset by Lauren Layne, then Hard Sell and Huge Deal. All three were re-reads and I enjoyed revisiting the series. Then I listened to Stay by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, another reread. That’s all I’ve had time for this week.

    Over the past week ~

    — The Last Watch (The Divide Series Book 1) by J. S. Dewes; this science fiction novel kept my interest. I haven’t decided yet whether or not I’ll read the sequel.
    — Into the Labyrinth: Mage Errant Book 1 by John Bierce; this fantasy was a quick and fun read. It’s a coming of age story set in an academy for mages.
    — and the next in the series, Jewel of the Endless Erg: Mage Errant Book 2 by John Bierce which I enjoyed. I’d describe this as a young adult fantasy.
    — reread Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. This is a short modern classic (about 200 pages), but it’s sentence after (frequently long) sentence with no chapters or breaks between paragraphs. Several of the other group members mentioned finding it challenging/a slog. I can’t really disagree!

    I’ve almost finished a multi-author trilogy called The Kringle Family Christmas. It’s about three adult siblings—last name Kringle—trying to save their family’s Christmas tree farm and inn (and each falling in love in the process). S. Doyle’s THE GRUMP WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS features the Kringle sister, an executive at a major insurance company, who falls for the guy who runs the family’s Christmas tree farm. I usually don’t care for S. Doyle’s writing style, but I enjoyed this, although I didn’t think either MC was particularly grumpy. Molly O’Keefe’s VERY MERRY MARRIED is about a Kringle brother who drunk-married a showgirl in Vegas. When she shows up looking for a quickie divorce, he persuades her to stay for a few weeks and help run the inn. Love blooms between them. I love O’Keefe’s angsty and somewhat melancholy style—and this book was no different. I’m now halfway through Julie Kriss’s JINGLE BELL BEARD. It’s about the woman hired to spearhead PR for the inn. She gets a second-chance with the remaining Kringle brother, now a professional NHL player, but once the boy whose heart she broke in high school. Kriss is one of my favorite romance writers and this book is a great example of her smooth, sweet, and sexy style.
