Calila | 2746 comments Guess I'm a B, I'll probably read Goodnight Tweetheart if I can fit it in.

Zorina | 236 comments I read a book the other day A Kiss to Remember and I enjoyed it (I say that makes me a high B or low A), I was already planning to read the next one in the Fairleigh Sisters series so I'm going to read One Night Of Scandal for this challenge.

MountainKat | 22955 comments I finished Some Like It Wicked yesterday. I chose that because it was available in audio and that is easier for me, and I prefer to listen to historical romance anyway. It was ok for me. Not great though, there was way too much back and forth between 'I love you' and 'I hate you' in deeds if not words - it got old. It felt like it was written at least a decade before it was to me. It wasn't bad so I would consider the author again, but I'm not going to be rushing to do so.

I started as a C, and I'm ending as a low B.

Zorina | 236 comments I finished reading One Night Of Scandal yesterday and I liked first half of the book ... I was really expecting an answer to the mystery, I was hopping for a logic "fix" to it not a fantastic. I guess Teresa Medeiros was going for a "gothic romance novel" but I didn't feel like it belonged with the first book in the series even if we met the MC in the first book in the series. Didn't care for this book but I will pick the next in the series because I want I'm curious. I started a high B/low A but after this book I'm a low B. To much ADD in her writing.

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments high B/low A...not sure what i'm going to read yet - need to browse the library (both my kindle one and the actual library) and see what is available

message 13: by Calila (new)

Calila | 2746 comments Read Goodnight Tweetheart, I loved the flirtation throught twitter between the MCs, but I felt that after they met it was a bit of a let down. Huge things (I don't want to spoil things) were glossed over in an effort to keep it fluffy and light.

4 stars and ending a B

Shelby (stang_lee) | 1706 comments I think I'd say I'd end up at a high B after reading Charming the Prince ★★★★★. I really enjoyed the book, and the antics of the kids were awesome and over the top in the best way. But I'm not a huge run out and read historical sort of person so I probably won't jump out and run to get the next book. It'll be added to my TBR, but I'll get to it when a challenge forces me to.
