I spent a grueling seven hours at school today, packing up my classroom for the summer. THANK GOODNESS I’m finally done. (I could have been home around four PM instead of six, had I gotten up immediately when my alarm went off this morning instead of finishing the book I’d been reading on my Kindle–Cindi Madsen’s Act Like You Love Me–and starting a novella I purchased last night–Try Me–and not getting up until the dog’s bladder was ready to explode. We’ll not talk about that, though.) Now it’s time to get reading for real. Finally!
“Reading” while working on my room–Make Mine a Bad Boy by Katie Lane, listening on audio. Not crazy about the narrator or the heroine, but it’s entertaining. Yesterday it was This Girl by Colleen Hoover, third book in the Slammed series. Enjoyable–much better narrator than book two had. Nice end to the series.
Finished Olivia Cunning’s novella Try Me while eating lunch–it ended really abruptly, but as it turns out it’s really part of a serial novel, which I hadn’t realized when I “bought” it for free last night. It was a lot of fun and the premise of the series intrigues me (the novellas will each feature a different member of the rock group Sole Regret, and after the first five will cycle through the band members in order again, and then again. The author calls it more of a “rock opera”.) so I’ll probably pick up a few more soon.
In the meantime, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. I need to finish Sabrina Jeffries’ What the Duke Desires, which I won an ARC of through a contest, because it’s due to be released next week. I’ve also got Susan Mallery’s latest Fool’s Gold book, Two of a Kind to read and Elle James’ Deja Voodoo, both coming out next week as well and Blurred by Tara Fuller the week after.
I’ll be posting reviews for the recently read books soon–for now I’ve got to get quilting on my Hospice quilt.
