I finished listening to Complicated by Kristen Ashley and, as usual with her books, got hooked from beginning to end. Here’s my review.

I finished listening to Tamarack County by William Kent Krueger, Cork O’Connor #13, and couldn’t put this one down either. Lots going on. Here’s my review.

I’m listening to The Crossing by Michael Connelly, Harry Bosch Universe #27.

I am a fan of Kristen Ashley but sometimes she's a mixed bag for me. I'll have to try this one.

I moved forward with #2 Dead Scared Dead Scared (Lacey Flint, #2) by Sharon J. Bolton , which was good.

Monica | 860 comments I am not off to a great start getting caught up on series. I've already started a new one, lol. But I did move right on to the second, and I'm starting the third and final one today.

Good Girls Don't {Donovan Brothers Brewery #1} and Bad Boys Do {Donovan Brothers Brewery #2} by Victoria Dahl. Enjoyed both of them quite a bit.

I also read a stand alone by my favorite, Kristan Higgins. So many of her books are 5 star reads for me. Whenever a new one comes out, I'm so afraid it's going to be a dud (even great authors have those!). Not the case for Now That You Mention It. It might even be one of my top 3 favorites of hers. Very good book, she's done it once again.

I LOVED the Donovan Brothers Brewery! Read it a few years ago. Before you read the third book, there’s a novella that’s critical to read first.

I’m reading Higgins’ book this month!


message 7: by Monica (new)

Monica | 860 comments Ooh, good to know. I wouldn't have known that! Thanks, Jonetta.

And I hope you love the Higgins' book even half as much as I did.

I went off plan for a quick read after having read two friends’ reviews of this really short story (19 pages). Before the Clock Strikes Six by Justin Tate is a Hitchcock-like horror story and here’s my review.

I finished listening to The Crossing by Michael Connelly, Harry Bosch Universe #27, a mashup of Harry and Mickey that delivered. Here’s my review.

I’m now listening to Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor, the third and final book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series.

Robin (robinmy) | 2607 comments So far this year I've read Bringing Up Baby New Year / Frisky Business (Harlequin Duets, #16) by Vicki Lewis Thompson Bringing Up Baby New Year / Frisky Business by Vicki Lewis Thompson. This wasn't the best way to start out the reading year.

My review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Next I read Speak No Evil (No Evil Trilogy, #1) by Allison Brennan Speak No Evil by Allison Brennan. It's a nice start to this series.

Laura | 2344 comments I started a new series and binged to get current In Skates Trouble (Chicago Rebels, #.5) by Kate Meader Irresistible You (Chicago Rebels, #1) by Kate Meader So Over You (Chicago Rebels, #2) by Kate Meader . It is about 3 estranged sisters who inherit their fathers hocky team. I'm enjoying it and can't wait until the next one.
I also finished Tracers #11 At Close Range (Tracers, #11) by Laura Griffin . Another solid installment in the series.

Also Tracers #12 is only 1.99 right now

Jeff | 35 comments I just finished The Wolves (John Wells, #10) by Alex Berenson (John Wells, #10). I've really liked the series overall, but especially enjoyed the story arc in books 8 through 10. I'm glad I just started the series a year or so ago and didn't have to wait a whole year between each of those books, if I had been current. Most of the other books have had one main plot line that gets wrapped up in a single book.

I need to add both series to my TBR. Glad you had some good reads back to back.

Waiting between installments is kind of the worst form of torture for us readers. I've been waiting for a series to wrap up before I move forward, and she just keeps announcing more books! I might have to just suck it up and wait a year between books.


message 18: by Monica (new)

Monica | 860 comments I just finished Unveiled (Turner #1) by Courtney Milan. I know, surprise, surprise, Monica started another new series. And made myself cringe while typing that in third person. But! This book was soooo good. I put it off because I was a little judgy about the cover (which has rarely worked in my favor, so you'd think I'd learn). It has a lot of the same tropes you find in most romance, but done refreshingly different. And the hero is an alpha without being an alphole (Thanks for that one, Anita).

I say if you want to start a new series go for it. Too many good books out there to limit yourself!

Yeah, I only have two books remaining before I'm caught up on this series (including the latest one coming out in a few weeks). I've been reading about one of these a month for the last year or so, so I'll miss it either way, but definitely hoping there isn't a big cliffhanger...

I read/listened to this in one day while staining the lumber for my new barndoor style closet doors. It made a really brainless, repetitive task very enjoyable.

Meera | 138 comments I read Murder on Astor Place (Gaslight Mystery, #1) by Victoria Thompson last week and found it to be a perfect weeknight reading and it's going to be hard for me to not go onto the second one before next month. I started and finished a graphic novel series - Alex + Ada The Complete Collection by Jonathan Luna which I found enjoyable. Also started a new series with A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles, #1) by Amanda Bouchet and Breath of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles, #2) by Amanda Bouchet . And caught up to date with this graphic novel series by reading Trees, Vol. 2 Two Forests (Trees, #2) by Warren Ellis . It's been a good month of reading so far.
