Saturday Reading Wrap-up - 8/25/18

Well, I finally got the book I was publishing finished, so that means I finally got to read more.  Yay!

The ebooks currently waiting to be read are: Tom's Inheritance (fantasy), Magic Born (urban fantasy), Resurgence (urban fantasy), Sabercat (SF), Before the Wedding (cozy mystery), and Shade Chaser: City of Crows #2 (UF).

Here's how the week shook out for me:

 59) Suddenly Sorceress by Erica Lucke Dean (8/24/18) - Paranormal Romance* - 5 stars.  New to me, but not underappreciated. 
Review: "Fun paranormal romance with plenty of magic and a whole 'comedy of errors' thing going on. A bit too spicy for my tastes, but I flipped past the sexy bits and the story held up well without them. The twist at the end was cute"  

58) A Scone to Die For by HY Hanna (2/23/18) - Cozy Mystery* - 4 stars.  New to me but not underappreciated.
Review: "Cute. A nice, light read and just what I needed to cleanse my reading palate. If you're a fan of British mysteries, you'll probably like this. I can't really say too much about what I really liked without giving away spoilers. Suffice it to say, the mystery wasn't a total shocker, but it was a bit of a surprise how it all turned out."

57) Under the Assassin's Moon by Silver James (2/22/18) - Paranormal Romantic Suspense* - 5 stars.  New release, but these books definitely aren't new to me.  Too bad they are WAY underappreciated.
Review:  "SQUEE! This book was awesome! I love the Wolves. Always. But this is Ms. James' best yet. So good. And the little twist with Zeta's heritage? Mind blown."

56) Soul Breaker (City of Crows #1) by Clara Coulson (8/20/18) - Urban Fantasy* - 5 stars.  New to me but not underappreciated.
Review:  "OMG, that was freakin' awesome! So much awesome dipped in awesomesauce and covered with sparkly awesomesprinkles. The only reason it took me so long to read is I started it and then got really busy with my own work. When I had time, I sat down and inhaled the rest of the book, ignoring pretty much everything else around me for a couple hours until I finished. I definitely need to get the next book. Like now. And then once I get over the book hangover this gave me, read that, too."  
(If you didn't catch it at the beginning of this post, I did buy the second book, but I have scads to read right now, so I haven't started it yet.)

I'm currently reading a paperback - Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose.  (Yes, the WWII book about Easy Company that the mini-series was created from.) Sometimes a gal needs to read real paper.  And sometimes she needs to go NF.  But after that, I will keep making my way through the new ebooks.  And I'd get through them all if I stopped downloading things that look interesting.  ;o)


  1. *brushes hands together* My work here is done.

    And yeah, that twist opens up all sorts of doors, doesn't it? *bwahahaha*
