July is my Recommended Month, books selected for this come from friends who send direct recommendations to me on Goodreads. Can't wait for more sun, fun, and reading. Enjoy your July, everyone!

May 2017 Wrap-up.
Crucible of Gold (Temeraire Series #7) - Naomi Novik
Scarlet - Marissa Meyer
Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo
Under Witch Moon - Maria E. Schneider

I'm happy I have more to list than will feature in the 10 + we can link at top of post.

 

I only had one DNF (and one that I stopped so soon I don't even consider that starting).  

 

Unusually for me, I discovered quite a few new authors.  

 

I didn't read a lot of straight-up science fiction of the sort with spaceships, new worlds, aliens and robots (except for Scarlet which sort of counts by having cyborg and lunar colony if you can get past how the spaceship piloting resembled bad teenage clunker-automobile parallel parking the way they zigged it about in earth's atmosphere with immediate corrections ...).  I need to correct that next month, but I'm pretty caught up on my SF series.

 

I'm also discovering that — while I enjoy character growth and when the plot/story has twists or gets shaken up — I don't like it when author changes the underpinnings or basics of what I thought I knew about characters and worldbuilding logic from reading previous books.  Reveal surprises, sure, even relationship ones; toss out everything developed earlier in series, not so much.  Thankfully this month there were no books completely with  characters having amnesia plus time travel to relive a previous storyline ... those are just aaaaarrrggghhh... (first third of Blood of Tyrants Laurence had amnesia and that whole unnecessary part dropped rating for me).

 

Not a lot of reviews.  Partly a mood I'm in.  Mainly bcause so many were in series where likely however I reviewed previous books is how I'd review that book.  Happily in many  cases because it's just harder for me to express why I loved a book enough to rate it ★★★★☆ to ★★★★★ .

 

 Silver Shadows - Richelle Mead Premiere - Melody Carlson  My Soul to Take - Rachel Vincent  

 

Silver Shadows - Richelle Mead , I rated ★★★★☆ , paranormal, #5 in Bloodlines (Alchemists spinoff from Vampire Academy) series.

 

Premiere - Melody Carlson , I did not rate.  Characters are in college so guess it's New Adult but reads YA.  An interesting premise, lots happens, a quick read of first book in a series my library had complete set.  I had mixed feelings on main character I initially liked but between them seeming more YA, the situations too unrealistic, the MC so "perfect" and accepting of submissive role to more glamorous sister and constantly praying to God as if he was her own personal genie or life coach — I decided series wasn't for me.  Likely appeal to others, particularly teens.  #1 in On the Runway series.

 

My Soul to Take - Rachel Vincent , I rated ★★★½☆ , paranormal, #1 in Soul Screamers series (new series by familiar author with banshees and grim reapers).  Some YA moments.

 

The Ruby Circle - Richelle Mead  Victory of Eagles - Naomi Novik  Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo  o

 

The Ruby Circle - Richelle Mead , I rated ★★★½☆ , paranormal, #6 in Bloodlines series.

 

Victory of Eagles - Naomi Novik , I rated a resounding squeezing fanpoodle ★★★★★, fantasy (alternate history of Napoleonic War with dragons), #5 in Temeraire series.

 

Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo , I rated ★★★★★, fantasy, review is here , #1 in Dregs series from a new to me author (despite the glowing ★★★★★ rating, I suspect I should have read author's Grishna series first).

 

Empire of Storms - Sarah J. Maas  Daughter of Smoke & Bone - Laini Taylor  Under Witch Moon - Maria E. Schneider  

 

Empire of Storms - Sarah J. Maas , I rated ★★★★½ , fantasy, #5 in Throne of Glass series.

 

Daughter of Smoke & Bone - Laini Taylor , I rated ★★★★☆ , urban fantasy (paranormal romance? fantasy because of Otherworld characters?), review is here , #1 in same named series, new to me author -- what a voice and an atmosphere this author creates.

 

Under Witch Moon - Maria E. Schneider , I rated ★★★½☆ , paranormal mystery, review is here , #1 in Moon Shadows series, new to me author discovered via Leafmarks, likely someone more into mysteries would rate higher, one of few indie works I read this year although could not tell it was self-published from writing/editing.

 

 

Death Before Decaf: A Java Jive Mystery - Caroline Fardig Mug Shot: A Java Jive Mystery - Caroline Fardig  A Whole Latte Murder - Caroline Fardig  

 

Death Before DecafMug Shot, and A Whole Latte Murder - Caroline Fardig .  Binge read first three books of cozy mystery series Java Jive Mystery because really enjoyed first two books.  Discovered first book from a friend's review in goodreads ( read first two via library overdrive borrow then bought third).  Main character engaged me, wacky stories, not necessarily the greatest mystery in the books.  Possibly a side effect of binge reading, but I did not like the third book (murked everything up throwing too much into it, too many clues, too many characters, too many too easily dismissed injuries/assaults and the whodunnit depended way too much on twisting what we thought we knew of characters).  May give it another chance if book #4 hits library; may not.

 

Closer to the Chest - Mercedes Lackey  Scarlet - Marissa Meyer  My Soul to Save - Rachel Vincent  

 

Closer to the Chest - Mercedes Lackey , I rated ★★★½☆ (wavered between that and ★★★★☆), review is here, fantasy, #3 in Herald Spy series (Valdemar Universe).  If you like Mags, you'll like reading more of his story.

 

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer , I rated ★★★★½ , fantasy, #2 in Lunar Chronicle series which I so regret taking so long to read -- it was just so overhyped and YA sounding I wrongly put off thinking could not live up to rep.  Series will quickly suck you in.

 

My Soul to Save - Rachel Vincent , ★★★★☆ , paranormal, #2 in Soul Screamers, less YA with character growth but still rushing in because too compassionate.

 

 

Tongues of Serpents (Temeraire Series #6) - Naomi Novik  Crucible of Gold (Temeraire Series #7) - Naomi Novik  Blood of Tyrants - Naomi Novik 

 

 

Tongues of Serpents  - Naomi Novik , ★★★★★ , fantasy , #6 in Temeraire series.

 Crucible of Gold , ★★★★☆, fantasy, #7 in Temeraire series.

 Blood of Tyrants , ★★★½☆ (although parts 2 and 3 I'd rate higher), fantasy, #8 and penultimate in Temeraire series .

 

 

Stakes & Stilettos - Michelle Rowen Blackveil - Kristen Britain  

 

Stakes & Stilettos - Michelle Rowen , ★★★☆☆ , paranormal romance, review is here , #4 in Immortality Bites, author almost lost me with the twists and character changes introduced plus leaving main character's curse to be resolved in next book.

 

Blackveil - Kristen Britain , ★★★½☆ , epic fantasy, review is here ,  #4 in Green Rider.  I cannot believe I'm saying this after how much I loved the first three books, but this one was too long.  I may be dropping the series because everyone says next book is even more "way too long" plus twists the series from traditional fantasy into steampunk (why on earth couldn't Ms. Britain just start a new steampunk series if wanting to foray into steampunk?).

 

Ratings scale used in absence of a booklikes suggested rating scale:

★★★★★ = All Time Favorite 
★★★★½ = Extraordinary Book. Really Loved It.
★★★★☆ = Loved It.
★★★½☆ = Really Liked.
★★★☆☆ = Liked.
★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.
★★☆☆☆ = Average.   Okay. 
★½☆☆☆ = Disliked or meh? but kept me reading in hopes would get better.
★☆☆☆☆ = Loathed It. Possibly DNF and a torturous read.
½☆☆☆☆ = So vile was a DNF or should have been. Cannot imagine anyone liking.  (Might also be just an "uploaded" word spew or collection that should not be dignified by calling itself a "published book." If author is going batshit crazy in the blogosphere over reviews -- I now know why they are getting bad reviews.  Or maybe author should take remedial classes for language written in until basic concepts like using sentences sink in. Is author even old enough to sign a publishing contract or do they need a legal guardian to sign for them?)

May 2017 Round-Up and Giveaway

 

Hello and I hope everyone had a great May. 

Mine is always super busy in my personal life and I hardly ever get time to read but I still had a great month. 

The few books I did get to read were good and of course we had ACOWAR released, which was sooo, sooo good and I loved every minute of it. It took me way longer to read it because of time issues but that was okay since I didn't want to rush this book. And I'm glad I didn't. I can't wait to see what will be next for the series.

I also finally posted my book-haul, that was way overdue and if you missed it, you can find it here . I think I should be done buying books for a while........ but we shall see lmao. 

Here are some new Releases for June according to Goodreads.

June 6th  Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren.

June 13th My Kinda Night by Lacey Black, The Story of Us by Tara Sivec and Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab.

Thank you and I wish you all a great June.

 

 


Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny  by Cindi Madsen

 

 

 

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for

Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.

A Fire in the Blood by Amanda Ashley

 

 

 

-I see a man. He is old. Very old. He will come into your life in a moment of danger. He will watch over you and protect you.- The gypsy’s hand gripped Tessa’s tighter. -He will bring you death, – she whispered, her voice like the rustle of dry leaves. -And life.-

Ten years later, when Andrei Dinescu saves Tessa from a vicious attacker, she has no idea that the handsome stranger the gypsy fortune teller predicted is not a hunter but a seven-hundred-year-old vampire. Darkly powerful, unbelievably compelling, he is obviously pursuing Tessa, but is it her love he’s after or her blood?

-A classic vampire tale of sensual, spine-tingling suspense.- –Christine Feehan on Desire After Dark

-Sexy, fast-paced, gritty, this is Amanda Ashley at her best! A must read!- –Ronda Thompson on Dead Sexy.

Starswept by Mary Fan

 

Starswept

 

 

 

In 2157, the Adryil—an advanced race of telepathic humanoids—contacted Earth. A century later, 15-year-old violist Iris Lei considers herself lucky to attend Papilio, a prestigious performing arts school powered by their technology. Born penniless, Iris’s one shot at a better life is to attract an Adryil patron. But only the best get hired, and competition is fierce.

A sudden encounter with an Adryil boy upends her world. Iris longs to learn about him and his faraway realm, but after the authorities arrest him for trespassing, the only evidence she has of his existence is the mysterious alien device he slipped to her.

When she starts hearing his voice in her head, she wonders if her world of backstabbing artists and pressure for perfection is driving her insane. Then, she discovers that her visions of him are real—by way of telepathy—and soon finds herself lost in the kind of impossible love she depicts in her music.

But even as their bond deepens, Iris realizes that he’s hiding something from her—and it’s dangerous. Her quest for answers leads her past her sheltered world to a strange planet lightyears away, where she uncovers secrets about Earth’s alien allies that shatter everything she knows.

This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

 

Danger waits on both sides of the grave.

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance . . .

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous “ally”; the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war . . . to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

 Belle by Anonymous Girls

 

Dear Reader,

Isabelle “Belle” March is a nobody. A nothing. A Peasant. No one even knew who she was until one of the Royals, Adam “Beast” Castle, decided she was hot enough to ignore the hierarchy at our school—a hierarchy I myself set in place. I run this school, and the Upper East Side, too. Here at H.E.A., we stick to a strict social status, something most of Manhattan does, too. So when Beast starts dating Belle? All hell breaks loose.

Royals shouldn’t date Peasants, and you’re about to see why.

Oh, and please don’t buy this thinking you know how this story is going to end. You know nothing. Nobody here at H.E.A. plays by the rules, or follows the books. The only one who knows anything around here is me…

And I’m not telling anyone a thing.

XOXO,

Elsa

Lost Rider by 

 

In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

Grayson by F.G. Adams

 

Growing up in the small coastal town of Florida, Grayson Blackwood has defied the odds stacked against him. Appearances on the outside can be very deceiving. Coming from a wealthy family with an abusive father that won’t ever change, he’s determined to be a better man. Grayson is fighting for his family, his country, and the only woman he’s ever loved.

Ella Anderson has lived a hard life, growing up with a sick mom and a less than upstanding father. From hand-me-downs to food stamps, life was never easy for her family. But the one thing she could always count on was her family’s love, and for Ella, that was the most precious commodity.

When Ella moves to Lakeview, she meets Grayson in high school. The attraction is immediate for both. Dubbed as ‘just friends’, Grayson and Ella forge an undeniable friendship that leads to a powerful promise.

After high school, Ella and Grayson fall out of touch. A one-in-a-million chance meeting halfway around the globe brings the couple back together in a lifeless desert land, a combat zone where death is always present.

Alpha in his own right, Captain Blackwood leads his special ops team into a war-torn country, determined to take down a terrorist, while Ella struggles with the realization that Grayson has found her again.

Will their love survive time and their harsh separation from long ago? Can Grayson show Ella that they were made for each other?


Bluebirds mate for life. And Grayson’s Bluebird is coming home.

Author’s Note: This is a full-length standalone novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

 

He’s found her at last

Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare

Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

 

 

 

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

 

Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender fluid main character, impressive worldbuilding, and fast-paced action.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class―and the nobles who destroyed their home. 

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand―the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears―Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. 

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

The Struggle  by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost

 

Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave
