What Are You Reading? (530)

Casee: You guys, I’m still reading the Rossi Crime Family series by J.L. Beck and C. Hallman. I’m reading Tame Me which is book four. When I was reading book three, I promised myself I wouldn’t read any more of the series. I lied to myself. I have no idea why I’m reading the series. I would never recommend these books. It’s a conundrum.

I finished listening to Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews yesterday. I LOVE THIS SERIES. Today I decided to give Echoes in Death by J.D. Robb a try on audio. Yeah, that one is a big no from me. I didn’t like the narrator at all. So now I’m listening to Magic Breaks and I love it, love it, love it.

Holly: I have had no reading time this week. I’m still listening to Entreat Me by Grace Draven. I started Rise of the Phoenix by Mason Sabre on Tracy’s recommendation, but I’ve only read a few pages so far. Hopefully I’ll have some reading time this weekend.

Rowena: It’s been a busy week for me and I haven’t had much reading time so I’m still making my way through Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews. My focus is being split between family stuff, work stuff and trying to keep hold of my sanity through this weird-ass time that we’re living in. But so far, I’m really enjoying Magic Binds and I’m hoping that this coming week will be a lot less chaotic so that I can focus better on the story.

Casee: I’m reading Keep Me by J.L. Beck and C. Hallman. This is the second book in The Rossi Crime Family. I don’t know why these books are so compelling to me. The heroes drive me crazy. I can’t stop. I keep asking myself why, but I have no answers.

I’m listening to Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews. This is book six in the Kate Daniels series. I adore this series on audio. I feel like the narrator really nails Kate’s attitude and emotions. I love this series!

Holly: I finished listening to The Traitor Queen by Danielle Jensen. I really enjoyed that series. She’s planning at least two more in the same world and I can’t wait to read them. I’m only sad The Traitor Queen wasn’t available in ebook format. I plan to buy it when it’s released in September. I also finished reading Alpha Night by Nalini Singh. It was good. I love Selenka’s Pack and hope we see more of them in the future. I DNF’d Oath Sworn by Kristen Banet after reading just a few pages. The writing wasn’t working for me. I’m not sure if it was me or the book. I may try again at a later date. I also read When He’s Dark by Suzanne Wright, the first book in the Olympus Pride series, an off-shoot of the Phoenix and Mercury Pack books. I liked it. I’m glad she’s writing more in that world. I started reading End Game by Hailey Edwards, but I put it aside about 25% in. I need to go back and read Rise Against. There are too many details I’m missing.

I’m currently listening to Entreat Me by Grace Draven, a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I’m loving the dynamic between the main characters. I’m looking for a good paranormal book or series. Any recommendations?

Rowena: As with a whole lot of weeks in 2020, this week was a slow reading week. I barely read this week and because of that, I barely finished Alpha Night by Nalini Singh last night but I’m now ready to jump back into Kate Daniel’s world with Magic Binds. I’ll probably start it over the weekend after I finish binging Goblin, which is a very good Korean drama.

Casee: I’m reading a pretty awful book that I can’t put down. It’s called Protect Me by J.L. Beck and C. Hallman. It’s book one in The Rossi Crime Family. This series is like a train wreck and I just can’t stop. I also have some good books in the wings that I’m really looking forward to reading.

I’m listening to Say You Want Me by Corinne Michaels. This is the second book in her Return to Me series. She is a new-to-me author and I’m really enjoying her books.

Holly: I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week. I’m still listening to The Traitor Queen by Danielle Jensen. It’s really good and I’m totally hooked, but I’ve had no time to listen to it. I really wish the ebook were available so I could read it in the evenings. Instead I’ve been reading Alpha Night by Nalini Singh. I’m almost finished with it. It’s really good. I’m not sure what I’m going to pick up next.

Rowena: Happy Friday, everyone! It’s been a really good reading week for me. I finished Magic Stars (love me some Derek and Julie!) and then I jumped into my TBR Pile for this month. I read and enjoyed His Bride for the Taking by Tessa Dare then I jumped into Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep and really enjoyed that one. Now, I’m reading our featured review book Alpha Night by Nalini Singh and I’m not far enough into the book to know if I’m loving it or not but I’m hopeful since both Casee and Holly enjoyed it. After I finish Alpha Night, I plan on jumping back into the Kate Daniels world and reading Magic Binds. I can’t wait!

Holly: I read more books this week! Hooray! I finished Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep, then read Crush the King, the next book in the series. I also read The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle Jensen, an Audible Escape book that came up in my recommended reads. I ended up really enjoying it. I got impatient with the audiobook so I downloaded the Kindle version and only listened when I couldn’t read. Fair warning, it ends in a cliffhanger and while the second book, The Traitor Queen, is available in audio, the ebook won’t be released until September. I also re-read a couple books.

I’m listening to The Traitor Queen by Danielle Jensen now. I’m not sure which book I’m going to read yet.

Rowena: Considering the kind of reading weeks I’ve been having lately, things are starting to turn around (fingers crossed). I read one book this week but I made a concentrated effort to get back into a reading schedule and it’s working! I finished Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews last night and I have already started on Magic Stars. I’m ready for Derek to be front and center of a story, even if it’s a short one. I love me some Derek! I only read a couple of pages because I was tired but I’ll finish that one up today and then jump into Magic Binds and I can’t wait!

Casee: This hasn’t been a great reading week for me. I still have all the time, but I’m not reading all the books. I reading Golden Trail by Kristen Ashley. She’s like my comfort author. If I ever want to read a book that I know I’ll like, KA is where it’s at.

I’m listening to Say You’ll Stay by Corinne Michaels. This is my first book by her. I’ll report later on my thoughts.

Holly: I read books this week! New to me books! Oh happy day! I finished Sin and Spirit by K.F. Breene, then read Sin and Lightning. I’m bummed I have to wait until July for the next book. I really like the series. I also listened to Always Be My Banshee by Molly Harper. I didn’t love the male narrator, but the story itself was really good. Molly Harper’s books are a lot of fun.

I’m currently reading Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep.

Rowena: Happy Friday, everyone! It’s been a good week for me because…I finally read finished a book. I finally finished Magic Steals and then I went on to read Magic Breaks. Oh man, there’s a lot going down in the Kate Daniels world for me right now and I’m thrilled with every single page that I’ve been reading. I’m so thrilled that I’ve already jumped into the next book, Magic Shifts. Happy reading, everyone!
