This is hosted over on J. Kaye’s Book Blog.
Books completed this week:
The Chocolate Cupid Killings by JoAnna Carl – As always I enjoy this series — it’s fun, it’s about chocolate and I like the quirky characters! An excellent cozy mystery series.
Wake by Lisa McMann — this looked intriquing, about a 17 year old who gets sucked into other peoples dreams. I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did, I was fascinated and zipped through the book. Very well done!
Rampant by Diana Peterfruend — also a YA novel (like Wake above) about a young girl who trains as a unicorn hunter. I really liked the main character in this novel and the story was interesting. I read this one a bit slower to enjoy the historical/scientific apsects that really round out the story. I’m hoping there will be a second book.
Ghastly Glass by Joye and Jim Lavene – this is the third book in the mystery series which is set at a Renaissance Faire. It’s fun, it’s quirky and I really enjoy each book. Sometimes the main character, Jessie Morton, annoys me by being very naive or dense (depending on how you look at it) but it’s still a fun read.
Books I Started but Didn’t Finish:
Silver Lies by Ann Parker — a historical mystery set in 1879 that I started and then didn’t finish. It just didn’t hold my interest at all.
Books I am currently reading:
Soulless by Gail Carriger – a novel of vampires, werewolves and parasols — how fun does that sound! I’ve only just started but I love Alexia Tarabotti, she’s a great character!
Fade by Lisa McMann – I am looking forward to seeing what happens next!
As You Wish by Jackson Pearce — “a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . .. and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.”
