I’m currently reading a new-to-me series & author called Wrecked by Catherine Cowles. I’m reading Wrecked Palace (Wrecked #3). It’s a contemporary series set on a small chain of islands off the Washington coast. They are very intense, emotional books. I honestly think I cried when I read the first one. I’m not generally a crier when I read so it was somewhat surprising.

I’ve been listening to the Fight for Me series by A.L. Jackson. They are rereads.

I’ve had very little reading time this month, so I’ve mostly just been listening to old favorites when I can spare a few minutes. I did manage to read Ruin of Roses by K.F. Breene. I didn’t love it, but I enjoyed it enough that I’ll continue with the series. I also re-read A Heart of Blood and Ashes by Milla Vane, Down London Road and Castle Hill by Samantha Young.

For audiobooks, I finished Good Boy by Sarina Bowen, then listened to Sustained by Emma Chase, a forever favorite. The story is great and I love the narrator. Since then I’ve been listening to old Julie Garwood favorites. I finished The Secret, Honor’s Splendour, Saving Grace and The Wedding.

I’m reading a book called Explosive by K.E. Osborn. I’m about 25% into it. I’m not sure what to think yet. I’ve been really into MC romances but this one hasn’t pulled me in like I expected. It’s been mostly a dud of a reading week for me. Hopefully it’ll turn around.

I finished Fractured Souls by Anna Carven, then immediately started the next book in the series, Decadence. I ended up setting it aside when I realized it wasn’t the character I wanted next, however. I think I’m going to take a break from that series for awhile. I don’t love the direction this spinoff is heading, and I’m not invested in the characters. I read Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross, the third book in the Stay a Spell series. I enjoyed parts of it, but the female MC was immature and frustrated me more often than not.

I listened to American Princess by Stephanie Thornton, a historical novel based around the life of Alice Roosevelt Longsworth, the eldest daughter of Theodore Roosevelt. The story was fascinating and the narrator was wonderful. I definitely recommend it. I read First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones for my book club. I enjoyed parts of the story, but the humor of the MC, coupled with a lot of the procedural stuff, constantly pulled me out of the story. I don’t think I’ll continue with the story.

I’m currently listening to Good Boy by Sarina Bowen, a re-read for me. I love this book. I haven’t decided what I’m going to read next.

I read a book called Rise (Rock God #1) by Cassandra Robbins this week. It’s one of those gritty, dark, steamy romances that I’ve been into lately. It ticked off all my boxes plus some. I’m about to start Echo (Archer’s Creek #1) by Gemma Weir. I love a good MC romance & finding new authors so this could be a win-win for me.

I’m listening to The Lion’s Lady by Julie Garwood. I always knew that I loved this book, but listening to it has made me love it even more.

I am still reading Anna Carven. I finished reading Electric Heart and  Darkside Blues, then Brilliant Starlight. That rounded out the Dark Planet Warriors series. Then I went back to the spinoff series, Darkstar Mercenaries. I read Shattered Silence and now I’m reading Fractured Souls.

I also listened to Pride and Prejudice on audio. It was my first time listening to the Rosamond Pike narrated version and I highly recommend it.

My reading hasn’t been stellar this week, which is pretty disappointing. I’ve been reading Tin Queen (Tin Gypsies #6) by Devney Perry for two weeks. It’s not that it’s not good, it’s that I just haven’t been reading.

I’m listening to the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews. I adore this series on audio.

I finished Whiteout by Adriana Anders. I really enjoyed the survival aspects of the book, but it lost me in the second half. Then I read Battle with Fire by K.F. Breene, the final book in the Demon Days, Vampire Nights series. I really enjoyed the series as a whole and this book in particular. It was a lovely conclusion to the series. I attempted to read Stranded and Spellbound by Jenna Collett, the third book in the Ever Dark, Ever Deadly series, which features various fairytale retellings. Unfortunately the premise didn’t work for me and I DNF’d it pretty early on. I went on to read – and really enjoy – the fourth book, Shatter the Dark.

I decided to go back and finish the Dark Planet Warriors series by Anna Carven. I am currently reading Electric Heart and I plan to pick up Darkside Blues next. I haven’t decided if I’m going to read the last book in the series, Brilliant Starlight. Abbey and Tarak aren’t my favorite couple and book 8 returns to them. I think I’ll wait and see how I feel after I finish Electric Heart.

I still haven’t started Tin Queen (Tin Gypsy #6) by Devney Perry. My plan was to read it over the holiday weekend. Have you ever just not wanted to read a book because you don’t want the series to be over? That’s where I’m at with DP. I’m currently reading Stand (Bleeding Stars #6) by A.L. Jackson. This author packs such an emotional punch that I have to take a break every few chapters. It’s a really good book, but pretty heartbreaking.

I’m listening to White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2) by Ilona Andrews. I adore Nevada and Rogan. I just LOVE them!

I’ve spent the week reading the Dark Planet Warriors series by Anna Carven. I had previously DNF’d the first book, Dark Planet Warriors, but I pushed through the first half and ended up really enjoying the second half. I then read books 2-6, Dark Planet Falling, Into the Light, Out of Darkness, Forged in Shadow and Infinity’s Embrace. I’m really enjoying the world and overall series storyarc.

I’m taking a break from the series to read Whiteout by Adriana Anders for my book club. I haven’t decided if I’ll go back and finish the last two books in the series after that, or if I’ll pick up something new.
