What Are You Reading? (665)

Posted December 1, 2023 by Holly in Features | 7 Comments


The last week of November really kicked my butt. Between work and family obligations, I had very little time to read. I finished listening to Things We Left Behind by Lucy Score. I really liked it and it promoted me to go back and reread the first book in the series, Things We Never Got Over. After that I was in the mood for more contemporary romance, so I read Gull Harbor by Kathryn Knight, a new-to-me author. The story was just okay. There wasn’t a lot of depth or emotion, which made for a quick – if not very engaging – read. I listened to Not My Kind of Hero by Pippa Grant, which was enjoyable and engaging, though I could have done without some of the added drama. Then I read Hidden Miles by Claire Kingsley, which is the 6th book in the series but the only one I’ve read. I liked it, but again there was a lot of added drama that seemed to carry over from previous books that I wasn’t super interested in.

I DNF’d It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey and Witches Get Stuff Done by Molly Harper on audio. I might go back to them at a later date or try to read them instead, but I wasn’t into either one at the moment.

Other than that, I re-read a few books and read through a lot of samples. I haven’t decided what I’m going to read next.

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

    I’m reading BEST SERVED COLD by Willie Dixon. It’s an m/m antagonists-to-lovers romance between two coworkers, one of whom is ACE and the other is both ARO and suffering from religious trauma.

    I read two rather disparate books over the past week ~

    — enjoyed the historical romance The Sinful Ways of Jamie Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley. I imagine that this is marketed as a standalone story; however, the hero’s parents and his aunts and uncles (who starred in their own romances earlier in the series) all feature in this story. While I enjoyed this, I don’t think it’s a book I’ll be likely to reread.
    — read the science fiction romance Calamity (Uncharted Hearts Book 1) by Constance Fay while on the bus running errands. While I didn’t care overmuch for the first chapter, I was soon enjoying the story and missed my stop…oops! While I don’t foresee rereading this book, I would happily read the next book when it releases next year.
