Reading has been fun. Somehow in the last 8 months I've learned not to obsess about what I read. I may not love everything I'm reading, but I'm not picking everything to pieces or throwing books against the wall. Of course, I'm rather picky about what I'm reading, with a tendency to stick with authors I know and am doing a ton of rereading.
So, what have I been reading? New authors first, I've probably read more than these, but these are the ones that kind of stood out good or otherwise:
- Sherry Thomas--liked Not Quite a Husband, and have her other two books on my TBR pile.
- Michelle Marcos--not a huge fan. Finished Wickedly Ever After, and found the heroine to be a bit TSTL but not enough not to finish the book. Didn't realize it was the 3rd in a series until after I bought it. Picked up the first 2 at the UBS before I finished it. I've started the other two, but you have to be in the right frame of mind to read stupid heroine stories. I've been reading romance for close to 30 years, so I've read my share of TSTL heroine books and there are worse flaws for a book.
- Karin Tabke--completely enjoyed Master of Craving, once agian reading the 3rd book in a series first, found the 1st book in the series at the UBS, but am haven't found the 2nd book yet. I'll probably have to break down and order it from Amazon.
- Claudia Dain--The Courtesan's Daughter was an interesting book. Loved the mother but the daughter really wasn't all that bright, I still enjoyed the book.
Rereading has probably been the bulk of my reading over the last several months. Lisa Kleypas, Linda Howard, Jane Feather, Susan Elizabeth Philips are my latest reread glom.
Right now I'm reading Meljean's Demon Bound, which I am completely enjoying :)
So, what have I missed over the last few months? Recommendations are highly welcome.
Have a great day and happy reading.
