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.

I finally got Tin Queen (Tin Gypsy #6) by Devney Perry in my hands. I’ve had it since Tuesday, but haven’t started it yet. I’m heading out of town for the long weekend and want to enjoy it with no interruptions. In the meantime, I started The Fixer (Professions #1) by Jessica Gadziala. I’m not very far into it, but it’s promising to be pretty good.

I’m listening to Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews. This is a reread for me. I’ve never listened to this series on audio. I love the narrator of IA’s books so I decided to give it a try. I can’t wait to finish it. I love Nevada and Mad Rogan.

I read the Class 5 series by Michelle Diener. I finished Dark Horse, then immediately read Dark Deeds, Dark Minds and Dark Matters. I tried an anthology by the same author, Interference/Insurgency next, which is a prequel to the Verdant String series. I enjoyed it, though the world-building was pretty dense. I’ll probably pick up the first full length book in the series soon.

I also read Taming Chaos by Anna Carven, which is the first book in the Darkstar Mercenaries series. It’s a spinoff of another series I haven’t read, and I felt like I was missing a lot of the backstory, though I did enjoy the story. Now I’m reading Dark Planet Warriors, the first book in the original series. So far it’s a bit slow, but I’m looking forward to seeing how things ended up where they are in Taming Chaos.

I’ve DNF’ed a couple of books this week, which is really unlike me. I’m usually in it to win it. I don’t like unfinished books. But honestly, I have too many books I want to read to read a book that isn’t good.

I DNF’ed Wicked Rule by K.I. Lynn. I just couldn’t do it. The hero was a complete ass. Today I am starting Trigger by J.L. Drake. It reads like it will be a MC book and I’m really excited. Fingers crossed.

My reading this week sucked. I re-read several books, but that’s pretty much all I had time for. I’m reading The Devil You Know by Kit Rocha and it’s slow going. This really has nothing to do with the book and is more about my reading mood. This morning I started Dark Horse by Michelle Diener (recommended to me here by Kareni). I’m really enjoying it.

I received an ARC of Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson. Now I love A.L. Jackson so I was really looking forward to it. It blew my fucking mind. I finished it yesterday and it is one of the best books I’ve read all year. All the feels, good & bad. Happy & sad. I can’t wait to share my review with you guys.

Now I’m reading Pagan by Jessica Gadziala. I’m just all about the dark romances right now. I also decided to listen to Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. I just adore that series.

I read Portrait of Death: Unforgotten by Isabel Wroth, a paranormal romantic suspense. I didn’t love it. The suspense angle was pretty bad and the romance didn’t make a lot of sense to me. After that I re-read Spellbinder by Thea Harrison and Steadfast by Sarina Bowen.

I have no idea what to read next. I think I want a paranormal romance. Any suggestions?
