DNFs
His Very Own Girl - Carrie Lofty
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen

My reading was bogged down because I kept these two boring romances on my currently reading list and just kept finding other books tor read. I gave these books each a day and still couldn't muster the energy to put into reading more. Cutting my losses now so that I can make room for more interesting books.

 

His Very Own Girl at the 20% mark - tried to read this for BL-opoly, so I will take the $1.00 and move on.

 

The Silent Governess at the 29% mark - tried to read this for Pop Sugar challenge, but I have more than enough books that could fit the prompt.

Quick and Easy.
His Royal Secret - Lilah Pace

So the book ends in a cliff hanger, virtually insuring that I immediately buy the next book to find out the end of the story. The manipulation!

 

I bought it though....lol

 

This was a easy and enjoyable romance, and was a nice break from the dreary world.....and that's all I ask for with romance novels.....that and believable couples and good sex scenes. 

 

So putting it all together...I was very happy and this book is a success.

Reading progress update: I've read 12 out of 543 pages.
Martin Luther: His Road to Reformation 1483-1521 - Martin Brecht

Time to start one of my summer reading projects. Hopefully I will have more success getting through it this time around.

 

(And DAAAAAM, did this book get expensive! I'm glad I bought my copies before the quincentenary!).

Friday Reads - June 16, 2017
Heat Wave (Nerds of Paradise Book 4) - Merry Farmer
His Very Own Girl - Carrie Lofty
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen
Midnight Unbound - Lara Adrian
Midnight in Legend, TN: Small Town Romance in the Great Smoky Mountains (The McClains of Legend, Tennessee Book 1) - Magdalena Scott
The Captain's Kidnapped Beauty. Mary Nichols - Mary Nichols

Free Friday BL-opoly Read: Heat Wave by Merry Farmer, in honor of the heat wave the UK is facing this weekend and into next week. This is one of 30 novellas that RT convention 2017 commissioned for its Magnolias and Moonshine campaign for Atlanta; it is also part of her Nerds of Paradise series. It is a contemporary romance with interracial couple. 104 pages = $2.00.

 

BL-opoly Read (pre-shake up): Trying to get through His Very Own Girl by Carrie Lofty. It's boring me at the 20% mark, so if it doesn't improve by the 50%, I am going to DNF. I can't wait for D-Day so at least something happens.

 

Pop Sugar Read: The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen. This is so boring and a bit unrealistic. Christian romance set in rural Regency England. I'm giving it until 50% to get better before I pull the DNF card.

 

COYER Summer Vacation Reads: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breeds #14.5) by Lara Adrian, because I wanted something different than historical romance. Since it is a short book, I am also going to try and knock out Midnight in Legend, TN by Magdalena Scott as well.

 

Ripped Bodice Bingo Read: The Captain's Kidnapped Beauty by Mary Nichols. I just finished this one for the "person in uniform on the cover" square. A Georgian-era romance that takes place in Lisbon and London. I borrowed from the library, so a Library Love Challenge book to boot.

 

So my son's last day of Kindergarten was yesterday. I can't believe my little boy is going to be a 1st grader already. I forgot how much energy little boys can have, lol.

Reading progress update: I've read 36%.
His Royal Secret - Lilah Pace

Well...they did not waste time, getting to the point.... 

 

 

So far this romance has promise. But it does kinda feel like I'm reading fan fiction...not that's that's bad really...
