Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
How was your week? I had another (mostly) spectacular reading week so I’m stoked! I’ll be sending my good-book vibes to all of you stuck in reading slumps 😉
The Spanish readers will be delighted with the FINAL instalment of Meander. Please find Quickie Meander in the sidebar. Though I’m grateful for Kereny’s hard work, I’m going to miss her wonderful involvement here on the blog.
In the light of my fantastic translator’s stellar contributions I’d just like to take a moment to say THANK YOU. The time, energy, and devotion you guys spent on this love-job is admirable. To my Italian and Spanish translators especially, Paola and Kereny, thank you for seeing the WHOLE project through despite what I know to be busy, sometimes challenging lives. I’m deeply touched by your unwavering commitment to Meander. You guys rock!
I came across this pic today… never let it be said that we don’t stay brand true…. 😉
I think it’s an accurate reflection of the gifted, self-assured Alphas we love to read. LOL!!!
This week I read:
Paper Princess by Erin Watt, book one in The Royals series, was delightful. The author’s name is an alias for Elle Kennedy (which I’ve always enjoyed) and Jen Frederick, so I had high hopes. The duo did not disappoint, but the book ended on a hella’ cliffie, so now I’m biting my nails ’till the next one’s release. *sigh*
Insatiable (book one and two) by J. D. Hawkins was okay. I didn’t hate it, but the sometimes off-the-wall metaphors were distracting, and the insta’-love takes away from the potential connection between the protagonists. Also, the book was heavily reminiscent of the Crazy, Stupid, Love movie, right down to a Ryan Gosling reference. Add a good dose of dirty and you end up with something less than gripping.
Talon by Carian Cole, book four in the Ashes & Embers series. Susan introduced me this little gem and I don’t mind saying it kept me heartily engaged. The story is beautiful if not a little sad, and you can never go wrong with a tattooed bad-boy. It can easily be read as a standalone, but I will so be going back to meet ALL the hot rocker brothers that make up the Ashes & Embers band.
On my shelf I have:
Bride in Bloom by J. B. Hartnett, book one in The Beachy Bride series.
So many books, so little time! Wouldn’t it be awesome if we got paid to read? 😉
Ha! See? I knew there was something special about me….
Have a lovely weekend, girls. And if you come across a beautiful story don’t forget to share!
