Hey Kids! How's it hangin??? Did you have a good week? I hope so!
My week was very quiet as the kids were at my parents all week and John didn't get home until Friday...but they're all home now which is wonderful!
School starts for my kids next week...WTF?!!! lol Seriously how did that happen? I just can't get used to this only 2 months off in the summer thing. They're looking forward to it, I'm the one who's not. haha
I also realized that RAW is only about 6 weeks away! My goal was to read at least 1 book by each author - totally easier said than done. Truly. I read a lot, this should be no problem. I just haven't been motivated for some reason so I'm trying to jump further into that bandwagon.
Ok then started my week off with Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer which I liked...thoughts below. As I said in that post, I think I'm in the minority but, whatever. :)
Trying to read my RAW authors I read a short novel (novella) by Sylvia Day, Misled. It's about vampires in outer space. Whodathunk? Really. It was ok - lots of sex.
Next was another RAW author, Dawn Ryder. She also writes under Mary Wine who I like. Strangely enough, both of them will be at RAW! lol Anyway, this one was Hawk's Prey. Another sci-fi book about a girl who moves with her brother and father to a penal colony even though she's an innocent because she doesn't want to be alone and shunned. Wow - big move. She meets up with a Hunter, Hawk, who is more a less a guard. They hit it off, sex ensues. However, Hawk is "linked" with his partner so then you've got the old menage goin', even though her feelings are for Hawk. This sounds strangely weird, but it was actually strangely intriguing. I think I might be reading more in the series...not sure yet.
Next up, on the advice of Lisabea, I read Samantha Kane's At Love's Command. Samantha just won a Passionate Plume award for best historical erotic romance, 2007. Congrats Samantha! At Love's Command is a m/m/f romance and it was wonderful. I loved this book and now want to go back and read all of Samantha's Brothers In Arms series. Wonderful story, wonderful. Very, very sexy book.
Ended my week with Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have to thank Kat for turning me on to the Dark-Hunter series. So dang good. I was very much looking forward to Acheron to learn all about his past, what makes him tick, how the hell he was gonna get away from Artemis and who was gonna be the love of his life. All of my questions were answered and it was a fabulous, fabulous book. Wonderful. Grade A+
What have you been reading this week?
