Monday Morning Update


Here are the fastest updates on the face of the earth! Ready...set....go.....


Here's what I've read recently and is coming up in the TBR pile....

Beauty Touched The Beast by Skye Warren

This was a freebie download at ARE. It was a short, hot read with some of my favorite themes--older man/younger woman, and beauty/beast. It has a lot of potential to be expanded into a longer story....I hope the author will consider it. My first read by Skye Warren, and it won't be my last!

Grade: A-


Wild and Steamy anthology

So far, I've read the first story by Meljean Brook....The Bounder. Absolutely loved it! It kicked total steampunk ass, and now I can't wait to read Heart Of Steel. I also read the second story in this anthology, Vixen by Jill Myles. This was nothing like the other stories I've read by her....pretty much an erotica about a were-fox. It's a menage...not my favorite. A lot of sex, not a lot of substance or anything else. It was a fun read, but seemed out of place next to The Bounder. Looking forward to finishing this book with Carolyn Crane's Kitten Tiger and the Monk.

Grade: A for Brook story, B- for Myles story


Doxology by Tim Black

This is a satirical book about a magical weenie dog. Nuff said. Hoping to get to it this week.


And.....drum roll please......the Holy Grail of ARCs.....

Restless in the Grave by Dana Stabenow

The latest book in the Liam Campbell series, which I got addicted to last year. It's coming out on Valentine's Day, but I was thrilled to get an ARC of this one. Can't. Wait. To. Read. It. Hallelujah!!!!!!

I also managed to cram in 2 comfort re-reads this weekend....Julie Garwood's The Bride, and Stephanie Laurens' All About Love. I'm feeling very romantic! :^)

Happy Monday,
Penelope

My goodness...I'm so jealous of how much reading you do. :)

Thanks, Penny ;-)

As for Wild & Steamy, the best is yet to come, at least in my opinion.

Hi Amber....I have a mild reading problem. Maybe not that mild. ;^)

Penelope said...

Hi Skye!!!!!! So glad you stopped by. I'm really looking forward to reading more of your stories...just not the scary ones. :^)

I love Carolyn Crane, so I'm looking forward to reading the last story in the anthology.

Lots and lots of books! The Bride is one of my faves.

Julia....Me, too. I re-read that one every 3-4 months.
