Mid-week Update Post

 

Bout of Books

 

My Bout of Books cycle 19 started at the RT convention and involved traveling back home, so there wasn't a focus on doing the daily challenges this time around. The Friday before I left for Atlanta I did a massive download binge from the NOOK Store's free romance section (I do this when I am stressed for some strange reason). I hoped to get to some of these relatively short books to help pump up my stats for this cycle.

 

Thursday:

Finished first chapter of London: The Novel by Edward Rutherfurd

Got to 36% of Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Friday:

Finished Shimmy for Me: A California Belly Dance Novella by DeAnna Cameron

Got to 49% of Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Saturday:

Read Selkie Heart by Sam Asher

Read Trouble in Tinseltown (Summer Flings #1) and Misbehaving in Miami (Summer Flings #2) by Aimee Duffy

 

Sunday:

Finished Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Stats:

# of full length books read: 2

# of novellas/short stories: 4

# of plays: 1

# of pages read: 809

 

Save the Date! Bout of Books Cycle 20 is August 20th-27th

Review: Selkie Heart by Sam Asher, Trouble in Tinseltown and Misbehaving in Miami by Aimee Duffy
HEART OF THE SELKIE - Sam Asher
Trouble in Tinseltown (Summer Flings, Book 1) - Aimee Duffy
Misbehaving in Miami (Summer Flings, Book 2) - Aimee Duffy

These three books are available in the NOOK store in the freebie section.

 

Selkie Heart by Sam Asher

First book in a trilogy about a selkie and a human. This 30 page story is how they met and fell in love, with an epilogue that was as long as the story and dropped all kinds of plot lines for future books. The random pictures of oceans at night did not add to the story at all. Will not continue with the series. The title is different here on BL from GR and the NOOK store.

 

Trouble in Tinseltown (Summer Flings #1) by Aimee Duffy

Three university friends decide to take the summer after their graduation to go globe trotting. Two of the friends are from very wealthy families, so it works; the third, the narrator named Ciara, is not from wealth nor does she even have a job or source of income. So she goes traveling, shopping, bar hopping with her friends and uses up her savings. This is some shallow Brit chick lit, with an added romance between Ciara and her friend's cousin Zack.

 

Misbehaving in Miami (Summer Flings #2) by Aimee Duffy

More sex scenes with Ciara and Zack. Elle (Zack's cousin) tries to have a fling with some guy she met on the beach, fling boy wants more. I can't do anymore from this series.

Review: Naughty or Nice? A Written Fireside Anthology by the Harper Impulse Authors
Naughty or Nice?: A Written Fireside Christmas Anthology from the Authors of HarperImpulse (A Free Sampler) - Lori Connelly,AJ Nuest,Aimee Duffy,Angela Campbell,Carmel Harrington,Charlotte Phillips,Erin Lawless,Jane Lark,Linn B. Halton,Lisa Fox,Lynn Marie Hulsman,Mandy Baggot,Romy Sommer,Teresa F. Morgan,Zara Stoneley

All the short stories in this eBook anthology start with the same paragraph, the authors then develop their own story. I'd not heard of this way or writing before, but found it really interesting and enjoyed finding out how each story developed from that simple starting point.

Some of the stories were rather predictable, but still fun to read, light and festive.
