Reading progress update: I've read 6%.
The Cracked Spine - Paige Shelton

Because it came recommended, I was thinking about using The Cracked Spine for my free-square read...but I'm thinking it might be a little too cozy for me. The main character is just moving to Edinburgh from Kansas and while she's daunted by all the traffic around her, her cab driver invited her over to dinner and she didn't freak out about the possibility of being made into a skin jacket. I'm not saying that the people of Edinburgh aren't nice and friendly but...the MC is perhaps a little too much of a denizen of a small town. Perhaps the author too.

 

I'm going to put this one on hold for now.

The return
Cracked But Never Broken - Kari Holloway

Damien comes home to the ranch, after military service.  He has to adjust to being home, and all that it entails.  There are just so many changes....

 

Lexi thought he would never come back.  He seemed to like staying away.  What was once a promise now actually may be a possibility.  Only danger lurks....

 

This story caught me off guard!  There is action, humor, heat, and more.  I found that there were some character I really liked, and some I just wanted to off myself!  The main characters are easy to root for, only theirs is a more complicated story.  Fun and quick read.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Free Audible books.
FREE: Crackanory Too Cracked for TV - exclusive to Audible - Crackanory,Toby Jones,Katherine Parkinson,John Robins,Robert Bathurst,Simon Bird,Audible Studios

I downloaded this as a free read from Audible, so I can't really complain that I didn't particularly enjoy it, but I did feel that these stories were inferior to those that I listened to in series 1 and 2 (also a free download from Audible).
Each of the five stories in Crackanory Too Cracked for TV was about 15 minutes long and each had a different narrator.
Most of the narrators were excellent, although one read too fast and rather swallowed her words.

 

The stories, 'Kill Phil', 'Mummy Business', 'The Character Assassin', 'The Egg That Knew Too Much' and 'The IT Man', all seemed to me to be trying too hard to be clever. Frequently a sentence would be over complicated with facetious asides that I found annoying. I guess it's a British humour thing and I've been out of the country for too long. Still, they were good to divert me from the stress of driving and as free audiobooks, they are a bargain.

Cracked: A Danny Cleary novel - Barbra Leslie

hm, oh well--back to just liking this, not loving it. aspects of it seem implausible, over-the-top, not totally grounded in the way things work in real life. I like the unique feel of this book, but it's out of harness a lot. going to try and finish it tonight.
