What I Read Last Week

Well it was another interesting week around Tracyland. With hubby still gone – he got back this past Saturday – I felt like a freakin taxi service running my oldest and her friends around. And of course none of them live nearby, it’s always to the other side of town and back which shoots about 40 minutes. *sigh* No time to read (or do anything else for that matter)! lol The kids start school this week so I know things will calm down now *crosses fingers* 

When I said there was no time to read I wasn’t kidding. My first book of the week was Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook. This book was so so so so good I didn’t want to put it down but with my schedule it ended up taking almost 5 days to read it. It was sheer unadulterated torture. lol The wonderful think about Meljean’s books is that there’s so good that it doesn’t lose any of its punch when you have to put it down for a while. This was Michael and Andy Taylor’s book and I loved every moment of it. I can’t say enough good things about it and think everyone should read it. :) 5 out of 5 (read for Book Binge – my review will post on 8/14/13, fyi) 

I then read a very short story in the Iron Seas series by Meljean Brook called The Hook. Very short – like 5 pages, very good with Mina Wentworth and Constable Newberry. You can read it here on Meljean’s website by clicking here. 4 out of 5

Next was The Devil of Clan Sinclair by Karen Ranney. The story is about Virginia and Macrath who fall in love but then Virginia’s father contracts her to marry someone else. After about 9 months her husband dies and when the new earl takes over her and her in-laws (all women) will be left destitute (the husband was a true bastard). The mother in-law and Virginia devise a plan to get pregnant and pass the child off as her husbands. You can see where this is going, can’t you? Yep, she has Macrath’s child but doesn’t tell him about him and then when he finds out he takes the baby. This was a really great story and I loved the characters and the way they were written. You can read my full review on Wednesday. 4 out of 5 

Fighting Fate by Linda Kage is a New Adult read about a girl who goes to college and ends up falling in love with the guy who killed her brother. That sounds bad but it really was a true accident and he suffered from it as well. The story was really good and though there was a lot of tragedy to read about, most of it was in the past. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series when they’re released. 4 out of 5 (read for Book Binge)

That’s it! I know – there’s hardly anything there. Oh well, I’ll hopefully have more time to read now that hubby’s home. :)
