I’ve had a bunch of time to read lately what with vacation & my husband being out of town. I was on a paranormal kick for awhile there. I read a lot of Katie Reus. Like a lot. I read Ancient Sentinel (Ancients Rising #7), Alpha Instinct (Moon Shifter #1) & Primal Possession (Moon Shifter #2). I was pretty disappointed with Ancient Sentinel because it was so short. I really didn’t feel like it packed as much of an emotional punch as the other books in the series. After I finished those three, I decided to go back to contemporaries. Last night I finished Pretend You’re Mine (Benevolence #1) by Lucy Score. You guys, I loved this book. Like loved it, loved it. I just adored Harper & Luke was so tortured that it made for an almost-perfect read. Next up is Finally Mine (Benevolence #2).
I haven’t had very much time to listen to audiobooks right now, but I still have Things We Hide From the Light (Knockemout #2) that I’m trying to listen to. I just love Lucy Score.
It’s been a crazy month at work and I haven’t had a lot of time to read. Let’s hope April is better. Since last time I re-read Castle Hill and Down London Road by Samantha Young, as well as The Wedding by Julie Garwood. Re-reads are always easier for me when I don’t have a lot of reading time.
For new reads, I read A Dead and Stormy Night by Steffanie Holmes, the first book in the Nevermore Bookshop Mystery series. I really enjoyed the writing and the story. I’m looking forward to the next book. I read the final book in the Gate of Myth and Powers trilogy, The King’s Queen by K.M. Shea. Honestly, I was a little disappointed. Shea has a habit of saving all the action until the last 1/4 of the book, which made for a rather dry reading experience. I still enjoyed the overall story, but I wish it had moved a little faster.
I’m currently reading Guardian of Chaos by Michelle Manus, book 1 of the Nyx Fortuna series. So far I’m enjoying it, but I’m still pretty early into it.
I’m reading LOVE THY BROTHER by Garrett Leigh. It’s the fourth book in her Rebel Kings MC series of m/m motorcycle club romances. These books are very angsty with a high level of violence, but I have enjoyed this first three and the new one seems equally good. It features the brother’s best friend trope.
Over the past week ~
— read three related works by one author ~
Space Junk: Houston, We Have a Hottie; Space Age: Houston, Prepare to Launch (a novella); and the story “Space Landing.” These were pleasant entertainment, but I don’t expect to reread them.
— I’ve been fighting a cold this week so was in the mood for a comfort read. I reread a favorite science fiction series: Linesman, Alliance, and Confluence by SK Dunstall and enjoyed them all again.
