What Are You Reading? (603)

Posted April 22, 2022 by Casee in Features | 4 Comments


I’ve been rereading Kristen Ashley. I read Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain #2) , which is the best book she has written in my opinion. I started Darkness Dawns (Immortal Guardians #1) by Diane Duvall. I’m not very far into it, but it’s good so far.


I finished Awaken the Darkness by Dianne Duvall, then read the rest of the Immortal Guardians series: Death of Darkness, Broken Dawn and Cliff’s Descent. I really enjoyed the series as a whole. Once I finished the main series, I re-read the first two books in the Aldebarian Alliance spin-off series, The Lasaran and The Segonian. These were the first books I read by Duvall and I wanted to revisit them after completing the original series. A lot of things made more sense now that I’ve read the other books.

After that, I listened to A Sorceress of His Own, the first novel in the Gifted Ones series, which is a prequel of sorts to the Immortal Guardians series. It’s set in medieval times and was actually a really good listen.

Now I’m listening to A Rendezvous with Yesterday by Dianne Duvall, the second Gifted Ones book, and I’m reading Three Dog Knight by Annabel Chase, the second book in the Midnight Empire: The Tower series.

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

    I just finished Cordelia Kingsbridge’s five-book Seven of Spades m/m romantic-suspense series about the search for a serial killer. Very gritty and full of triggers, but I enjoyed it. I no have queued up THE HEIR-APPARENT’S REJECTED MATE, the next in Cate C. Wells’s Five-Pack series, and THE NO-SHOW by Beth O’Leary, which apparently has a very misleading illustrated cover with a rom-com-y vibe while the book is really closer to women’s fiction. I don’t know yet because I’ve been trying to avoid reading spoilers. Of course, all other books will go on the back-burner on Tuesday when Rachel Reid’s THE LONG GAME finally drops. Can’t wait!!

    Over the past week ~

    — Rescue You (Dogwood County Book 1) by Elysia Whisler was a very enjoyable contemporary novel featuring two romances. Much of the story centers around a dog rescue so fair warning that abuse to dogs features in the story.
    — enjoyed the contemporary male/male romance, When All the World Sleeps by J.A. Rock and Lisa Henry, which had a lot of dark moments. One of the characters murdered someone in his sleep.
    — reread with pleasure Transcendence and the companion work Luffs both by Shay Savage. These have a young woman who travels from the present day to a prehistoric time.
    — enjoyed the male/male fantasy Winter of the Owl by Iris Foxglove, and would happily read more by the author.
    — continued my Doyle/Acton reread with Murder in Material Gain and Murder in Immunity both by Anne Cleeland.
    — Scales and Sensibility (Regency Dragons Book 1) by Stephanie Burgis was an entertaining regency era romantic fantasy. I’ve previously enjoyed a different book by this author and would happily read the next book in this series.
    — enjoyed the lighthearted science fiction novel The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi; it’s my first book by this author and I would happily read more.
    — an enjoyable alternate universe romance, The UnTied Kingdom by Kate Johnson. Interestingly, I see that the book has been rewritten and re-released with a new cover. Now I can’t help but wonder how my version differs.

      @Kareni: I loved WHEN ALL THE WORLD SLEEPS. Yes, it’s on the downbeat side, but one thing I really liked about the story was that the authors refused to magically cure the sleep disorder. The MCs have to learn how to live with the fact that one of them will continue to suffer from a disordered sleep condition.

        I appreciated that aspect, too, @DDD. (And am very grateful not to have to navigate such a difficult situation.)
