I’ve been on a dragon binge recently. I finished the Darkness series by Katie Reus then decided to try Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire #1) by Deborah Cooke. I didn’t like it at all. I don’t know if Katie Reus’ books were so good that I just expected too much or if it just wasn’t a good book. I also reread Garrett’s Destiny (Dark Protector #15) by Rebecca Zanetti. I really liked this one the first and second time around. Now I’m reading Edison (The Navesink Bank Henchmen #10) by Jessica Gadziala.

I’m listening to Hello Stranger (The Ravenels #4) by Lisa Kleypas. I love Mary Jane Wells. She’s a phenomenal narrator.

I discovered a new-to-me author, Jenny Schwartz, and read the first book in a fantasy/sci-fi spin-off series about a magic house, Any House in a Storm. It was interesting enough that I decided to go back and read the original series. I’m currently reading the first book, The House That Walked Between Worlds. I’m enjoying the world and the premise.

I listened to Crowbones by Anne Bishop. I really love the narrator and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

I finished up Katie Reus’ Darkness series, which I absolutely adored. Darkness Rising was the 8th and final book and my favorite book in the series. Now I’m reading Kiss of Fire (Dragonfire #1) by Deborah Cooke. This is a new-to-me author & I’m enjoying it so far!

I’m listening to Devil in Spring (The Ravenels #3) by Lisa Kleypas. I am enjoying Pandora & Gabriel immensely. I’ve found myself laughing out loud while driving down the road. It’s such a sweet story.

I read and listened to Dance with the Devil by Kit Rocha this week. I really enjoyed it. Aside from that I just re-read a few books.

I’m currently reading Captivated by Lauren Dane.

I am still on a shifter binge. I’m currently reading Guardian of Darkness (Darkness #7) by Katie Reus. I can’t say enough good things about this author. I’ve been reading her non-stop for the last five weeks. I’m bummed to be finishing up the Darkness series, but I’m looking forward to starting her Moon Shifter series. I’m also reading Things We Never Got Over (Knockemout #1) by Lucy Score.

I listened to a bunch of Julie Garwood historicals which put me in a historical mood. I’m currently listening to (rereading) Devil in Winter (Wallflowers #3) by Lisa Kleypas. I haven’t read or listened to a Kleypas in years & am looking forward to listening to others.

I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week, so I reread instead of picking up new books.

I finished Relentless, Insatiable and Mesmerized by Lauren Dane. I enjoyed all three. I plan to read Captivated, the next book in the series, at some point, but I’m taking a break for now. I also finished The Perfect Rake by Anne Gracie on audio. I listed to The Segonian and Night Unbound by Dianne Duvall.

I haven’t decided what I’m going to read next.

I’ve been reading quite a lot recently. I finished Into the Darkness (Darkness #5) by Katie Reus. I’m now reading Saved by Darkness (Darkness #6). I’m really enjoying this series. I love dragon shifters & Reus did a phenomenal job with the world building in this series. I’m enjoying it immensely. I haven’t really been into reading contemporaries lately, but I decided to try Things We Never Got Over (Knockemout #1) by Lucy Score. I’m hoping this book will get me back into a contemporary mood.

I’ve been listening to my Julie Garwood favorites on audio. I finished The Wedding (love this book!) and am currently listening to The Lion’s Lady. Although I love the story, the narrator is annoying af. All the whispering drives me crazy.

Life got in the way last week and we weren’t able to update. I finished reading Caszandra by Andrea K. Höst and I downloaded the Gratuitous Epilogue, which I ended up setting aside after reading about 1/4 of it. I will go back to it someday soon, but I needed a break from the series. I also finished Her Baseborn Bridegroom by Alice Coldbreath. I really enjoyed the story once I moved away from the audiobook and read the ebook instead.

I reread Repeat by Kylie Scott, Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh and Honor’s Splendour by Julie Garwood, them moved on to Radiant Darkness by Anna Carven, the latest Darkstar Mercenaries release. I enjoyed the overall storyarc, but the inner dialogue frustrated me in this book. Not Part of the Plan, the 4th book in the Blue Moon series, by Lucy Score was good. I liked Emma and Nico and I was glad to revisit the town.

I’m currently rereading the Federation Chronicles by Lauren Dane. It’s been years since I read this series. I hope it’s as good as I remember. I’m currently reading Relentless and so far I’m enjoying. I’m listening to The Perfect Rake by Anne Gracie. I’ve read the story before, but this is my first time listening to the audio. I’m enjoying the narrator.

I have been really into dragons the last few months. I’m currently reading Drakon’s Prey (Blood of the Drakon #2) by NJ Walters. I’m also reading Taste of Darkness (Darkness #2) by Katie Reus.

I’m listening to The Secret by Julie Garwood. I love this book and narrator.

Some number of years ago, reader Kareni recommended Stray by Andrea K. Höst (free for Kindle currently). I downloaded it then and tried to read it several times, but had a hard time getting into it. This week I pushed through the first 1/4 and I’m really glad I did. I’ve since finished it, Lab Rat One, the second book, and am in the middle of Caszandra, the third book. While I have found parts of the series to be very slow, it’s very intriguing and I can’t wait to see where things end. Many thanks to Kareni for the rec!

Otherwise, I started listening to Her Baseborn Bridegroom by Alice Coldbreath, but I ended up setting it aside. I plan to go back and read it. The narrator just wasn’t working for me.
