I am reading Storm Echo (Psy-Changeling Trinity #6) by Nalini Singh. I just saw yesterday that the release date was pushed back to August, so I consider myself especially lucky to be reading it. I’m also still reading Free by Kristen Ashley. Oh my, there are so many POV’s that it gets confusing af. I’m going on vacation today & I can’t wait to read all the books!

I’ve been on the fence about starting Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover on audio. I’ve heard so many good things about her from various sources, but I just don’t know if I want to read a book that’s going to wreck me emotionally.

I listened to Repeat by Kylie Scott on audio and re-read Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover and Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh. I read Her Hometown Man by Shannon Stacey, a cute small-town romance.

I am currently reading An Unexpected Cowboy by Shannon Stacey, the next book in the series and re-reading Shield of Winter by Nalini Singh.

I’ve been reading the Forgotten Brotherhood series by N.J. Walters. I just finished Arctic Bite (Forgotten Brotherhood #2). I was going to read Burning Ash (Forgotten Brotherhood #3), but I couldn’t get it downloaded on my Kindle for some reason. I decided to read Storm Echo (Psy-Changeling Trinity #6) by Nalini Singh.

I have Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover to listen to, but I heard that her books are really emotional. Since I’m not really in the mood for that, I’m going to listen to Devil in Spring (Ravenels #3) by Lisa Kleypas.

I finished Undying Stars by Anna Carven. It was just okay. It kind of felt like a placeholder novel in the series. Then I read Dragons are a Girl’s Best Friend by Isla Frost, a new-to-me author. I enjoyed it enough to immediately jump into the second book, All Is Faerie in Love and War, which ended up frustrating me. The book is well written, but the storyline left me feeling angry. I was curious enough to start the third book, Vampires Will Be Vampires, but I quickly DNF’d it once I realized it had a similar theme to the previous book.

On the recommendation of Ames, I read and really enjoyed One Percent of You by Michelle Gross, another new-to-me author. It was a sweet, single-mom contemporary romance. I am now re-reading Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs, so I can go back to Soul Taken.

I decided to try a new author this week. I read Fury Unleashed (Forgotten Brotherhood #1) by N.J. Walters. Now I’m reading Arctic Bite (Forgotten Brotherhood #2). I am also still reading Free by Kristen Ashley.

I’ve been trying to listen to Shadow Music by Julie Garwood. Trying being the operative word. It is an awful book. I am starting Chapter 25 and the h/h have yet to meet. DNFing a reread sounds strange, but I think that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

I set aside Soul Taken by Patricia Briggs because I was feeling a little lost and wanted to re-read Smoke Bitten first. I requested the audiobook, so I should go back to it soon.

In the meantime I read Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score, a new-to-me author. I really enjoyed the story. I’m excited to have found a new author to glom. I re-read Bad Apple by Elle Kennedy (formerly published under the title Midnight Encounters), though I didn’t realize it was a re-read as it has been updated and renamed by the author. I’m currently reading Undying Stars by Anna Carven, the latest installment in the DarkStar Mercenaries series.

I’m still binging on Dianne Duvall, Julie Garwood & Kristen Ashley. I’m currently reading Rendezvous With Yesterday by Dianne Duvall and Free by Kristen Ashley. I’m listening to The Gift by Julie Garwood.

I ended up DNF’ing Black Moon by J.D. Tyler. I just could not connect with the characters and their actions made me so angry I couldn’t continue. I read and listened to Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie, a new to me author. I didn’t like the female MC, which made it hard to get through. I don’t think I’ll read another book in the series. After that I read Tiger’s Daughter by Jennifer Ashley. It was just okay. I was hoping for more from a favorite character.

I read and loved Storm Echo by Nalini Singh. This is probably my favorite Psy-Changeling/Trinity book to date.

I’m currently reading Soul Taken by Patricia Briggs.

I’ve been reading/listening to two authors the last few weeks. I’ve been reading Dianne Duvall and listening to Julie Garwood. I’m currently reading The Purveli by Dianne Duvall. I’m listening to The Lion’s Lady by Julie Garwood. Both very good books.

I finished listening to Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews, then started Black Moon by J.D. Tyler on audio. I like the narrator, but I’m not sold on the story just yet. I may need to go back and read the previous books in the series. A lot of the plot sounds bad out of context. I read When He’s Sinful by Suzanne Wright, which was just okay. I liked some of the characters and the romance, but the suspense plots were over the top and didn’t really work for me.

I think I’m going to read Hunt the Stars by Jessie Mihalik next.
