Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments I still have four books I'm carrying over from previous months and I'm determined to get those finished. So I'm limiting my other reading and vowing never again to try juggling more than two books at a time (one physical copy and one audio).

Carry-over From Last Month:
House of Chains - 4th in series; BR (FBR) ★★★
The Providence Rider - 4th in series ★★★
A Lady's Guide to Etiquette and Murder - 1st in series
North and South

UF/FANTASY/SCIENCE FICTION:
Prince of Dogs - 2nd in series; BR (FBR) ★★★ 3/4
Midnight Tides - 5th in series; BR (FBR) ★★★★★
Slouch Witch - 1st in series; BoTM (GG&G)

CONTEMPORARY MYSTERY/SUSPENSE THRILLER:
Phantom Instinct - standalone ★★★
Evil Games - 2nd in series; GR (SW) ★★★★

MOOD READS:
The Nameless Day - 1st in series ★★★★
Hook, Line and Blinker - 10th in series ★★★
The Wounded Hawk- 2nd in series ★★★★
The River of Souls - 5th in series ★★★
WebMage - 1st in series; CR (D&D) ★★★
Pulse - 1st in series ★★★★


GR = group read
SR = series read
BR = buddy read
CR = challenge read

Thanks, Michelle. I'll be happy if I can just manage to clear off my carry-over books. :-)

I've just added this to Mt. TBR and was surprised to see that my library system actually has the book in its collection! I'll be watching to see what you think of it.

The cute cover drew me, I confess. I'll be sure to post my thoughts once I'm done.

Thanks, I need all the luck I can get...especially since I've already gotten sidetracked by a book not on my plan. lol

Thanks, Angela. I'm sure I will...on both counts.


message 17: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished The Nameless Day and liked it - gave it four stars - my review


message 18: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished the 10th book in the Miss Fortune series (one more book to go!) - the usual three stars for this light read.


message 19: by Veronica (last edited Aug 09, 2018 10:31PM) (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments I finally finished one of the books that I've been carrying over since June - House of Chains...four stars and my review.


message 20: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished The Wounded Hawk and gave it four solid stars - my review.


message 21: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished Evil Games, an excellent f/u in the series with a truly despicable villain. I gave it four stars - my review.


message 22: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments I also finished Prince of Dogs. It's a slower paced fantasy series but it's enjoyable. I gave it 3.75 stars, rounded up - my review.


message 23: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished another one of my carry-over books: The Providence Rider - three stars and my review.


message 24: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished The River of Souls - three stars.


message 25: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished WebMage - a bit dated but some funny parts. I liked it though probably not enough to go through the trouble of tracking down the rest of the series. ★★★


message 26: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Finished Midnight Tides which was a strong comeback from the last book. This one was a definite five stars - my review.


message 27: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Snuck in a reread before the month ran out - Pulse, still four stars and my original review.


message 28: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Oops, and forgot that I also finished Phantom Instinct - three stars and my review.
