I read Queen of Snow by Laura Burton, which I really enjoyed until the end. I was left frustrated and annoyed at the twist it took and I’m hesitant to continue with the series now. I reread Good Boy and Stay by Sarina Bowen, two of my favorites. I discovered a new-to-me author, Maria Luis, and read Body Check, the 4th book in the Blades Hockey series. I really liked the writing and the re-united lovers story. I tried to read Kiss Me Tonight by the same author, but I didn’t enjoy the enemies to lovers trope and ended up DNFing it. I plan to try another book by the author, however, since I liked her writing quite a bit.
I have four books I’m juggling right now: TROPICAL STORM by Skye Warren & Amelia Wilde, the third and final book in their MMF Deserted Island trilogy. POSSESSION by A. Anders, the second book in her Kink Camp series of erotic romances. THE PLAYING GAME by Ainsley Booth, an MF hockey romance. And the revised and re-edited version of GLITTERLAND by Alexis Hall.
Over the past week ~
— a reread by a favorite author, Kensho (Claimings) by Lyn Gala. This is a collection of stories which will make little sense if you have not already read the author’s Claimings series. I enjoyed it once again.
— reread Prelude to Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts by Lyn Gala which I enjoyed once again. This collection of short pieces is no longer available as a collection; I believe that the author incorporated the stories into her Claimings books when she republished the series.
— a young adult science fiction novel, Fire Season (Star Kingdom Book 2) by David Weber. This is a follow on to a book I recently read; it was enjoyable but I don’t think I’ll continue on with the series at this time.
— Misfit Mage: Fledgling God: book 1 by Michael Taggart was an enjoyable urban fantasy. The main character has a good sense of humor and a big love of kittens. I will caution though that the book begins with a violent scene that almost had me putting it aside.
