Well it's been a pretty slow week around the old homestead. Work was a little hectic because our annual meeting was today and I had to get things ready for that - never fun.
The big news in our house was my little one losing her first tooth! lol Excitement all around. That girl can't stop showing the world the gap in her face (picture a post or 3 back). omg - the checker at the grocery store, the librarian, the man at the gas station...and on and on. So stinkin funny.
So here's what I read this week:
Started off with Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian. The 5th book in her Midnight Breed series, and she certainly did not disappoint. It was a great book and I can hardly wait for the next installment!
Next up was a short by Tressie Lockwood called Tempting the Wolf. This was a strange little story about a girl who is very sheltered being, well, stalked is a good word for it. It was just kind of bizarre the way things came about and I wasn't a fan of her having to lose her virginity in front of a crowd. No thanks.
Next was a book I read for review on The Book Binge called Pieces of My Sister's Life by Elizabeth Joy Arnold. I loved the writing but I have to say the emotions were crazy out of control. My review will be up soon - I'll let you all know when.
Let's see then I read a Nocturne Bite by Karen Whiddon called Mate of the Wolf. This was a were-wolf/vamp story. It was well done but I just don't usually go for the fall in love in a day scenarios - but that's just me.
Last up was Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken. I saw info about this book and the 2nd in the series on Amy's blog and was interested in reading them. Pretty darned good. Fantasy romance with dragon shapeshifters. The thing I found interesting about this novel was that the first story only went til about page 220. Then another story started (one about the hero's parents from the first story when they were young) and lasted about 120 pages. It was cool to see a little insight into events that were mentioned in the first story playing out in the second. Well done.
(oh and how cool is this? I went on Amy's site to get her link and she had a review for Dragon Actually that she posted today! woohoo. Here it is!)
