Body Electric and Other Weekend Reads

I finally found enough time to sit and write something. Writing about weekend reading on Wednesday seems a little silly, but I have to blog about Susan Squires' Body Electric.

Once again I've spread my romance reading wings and found a WINNER. I read very little Science Fiction and Futuristic romance. This Book falls into both categories, a little bit of each. I finished it in one sitting Friday night. About 2/3 through the book, I took a couple of minutes and left a message for Amanda telling her to take this one with her over the weekend. Hopefully, if she got to it, she enjoyed it. It's very fast paced and a real page turner.

Let down time, what could follow such a great book. I decided to read some fluff. It took me 3 days to finish Jillian Hunter's The Husband Hunt. It wasn't a bad book, but couldn't compare to Body Electric. This is my second JH book in 2 weeks and I have the same complaint--it's too long and bogs down towards the end. I could have nit picked this one to death, but chose to enjoy it for what it is, a fluffy little historical.

Yesterday morning, I started The Cobra and The Concubine by Bonnie Vanak. I'm about 1/3 finished. So far I'm it's very good, but I was too tired last night to read before falling asleep. I haven't picked it up yet this morning. Instead of reading I decided to do some cleaning and pack up some toys for the ASPCA thrift shop.

Errands and yardwork today--not much time for reading.

Have a great day and happy reading.
