What I’ve Been Reading This Week

Hello there!

I can’t believe I’m getting this post done on a Sunday afternoon! That’s almost a miracle for me lately. 🙂

Hope you’re all well. All’s well here. I managed to avoid 2 other “Stupid Ass Things” for the week. The bang cutting I think took precedence and I avoided the other two. Either that or they’re delayed! lol

Have you all seen the book cover for Carolyn Crane’s (aka our own wonderful CJ from The Thrillionth Page) book Mind Games that comes out on March 23 2010?

Isn’t it gorgeous?? I love it and I can’t wait to read her books!
Ok – on to what I read this week:
I started with To Seduce A Sinner by Elizabeth Hoyt. This book 2 in the Legend of the Four Soldiers series but I didn’t read book 1 first. I certainly didn’t feel like I was missing anything that’s for sure. I decided to try and read some of the DIK books that others had brought to the island. I chose this one after reading Renee’s quick blurb about it and I’m so glad I did. It was a wonderful story of love and healing and I will definitely be getting the next books in this series. Thanks Renee! 4.5 out of 5

Next up was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. You can read my thoughts here. Good book! 5 out of 5

After that I read Wolfbreed by S.A. Swann. I had started this book last week but put it down when it was just dragging for me. It ended up being a pretty good read once I got past the first 100 pages but I didn’t love it. It was very descriptive of blood and gore – it definitely didn’t shy from descriptions of massacres and that’s a tad off-putting to me. 3.5 out of 5

A novella was next called Screen Shots: Seduced by Willa Okati. This one was recommended by Tam and it was a cute little read. It had a tad more “I love you, man” in it than I generally care for but I liked it. 3.5 out of 5

After that I read Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger for review on The Book Binge. I will let you know when my review posts in case you’d like to read it.

My Tracy’s TBR Challenge Read for the week (yes, I almost forgot to do one!) was You Slay Me by Katie McAlister. My friend Jen gave this entire series to me about 2 years ago and there is has sat. I finally decided to pick one up and it I liked it. I thought that the heroine, Aisling, was a huge bumbling idiot and did some completely retarded things but overall the story held my interest and I read it quite quickly. Since I have the rest of the series I’ll read the next book and see what I think. If Aisling is too much of a bumbler I’ll call it quits but I’ll give it a chance. Has anyone read this series and if so what did you think? 3.75 out of 5

Happy Reading!
