May Book Update

Tags : 

Hey all,

I’ve made a goal to read at least two books a month this year.

Sometimes I read a lot of books, and sometimes I don’t.

The following are the books I either read or listened to in May.

I’m actually ahead of my goal so far. (Knock on wood.)
Also, I had back surgery this month, so I did a lot of reading.

Epic Fantasy
I listened to this one. It took me a while because it’s so long.
Not quite as rompy as Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter Series, but a solid, unique world with some awesome characters. I’m totally listening to the next one soon.
(Warning: I didn’t love the narrator on this one.)
YA Urban Fantasy
I picked this one up from the authors at a writing conference a few months ago.
Cool magic system, great location (Ah, Venice), and solid characters. The plot was pretty typical YA Urban Fantasy, but I didn’t mind. The book delivered exactly what I was expecting.
Note: This is a pretty clean book.
Urban Fantasy / Mystery
I listened to this one. It was on sale so I grabbed it.
Please don’t let the iffy cover deter you. The main character has a fantastic voice, the magic system intrigued me, the writer made me laugh, and the mystery kept things very interesting.
YA Contemporary Romance
A bit of Crazy Rich Asians mixed with the movie What a Girl Wants. Good romance. A modern-day fairy tale. Sort of.
Sweet Romance Romantic Comedy
I do love a good princess story. This RomCom had me rolling a couple of times. Awesome chemistry between the characters. Love the author’s voice.
Science Fiction
Someone on my newsletter recommended this to me. It’s got an old-school Star Trek vibe with a super interesting premise. The pacing is slow, just to warn you. A mix between an idea book and a character driven book.

April Book Update

Tags : 

Hey all,

I’ve made a goal to read at least two books a month this year.

Sometimes I read a lot of books, and sometimes I don’t. This year I’m going for consistency.

The following are the books I either read or listened to in April.

I’m actually ahead of my goal so far. (Knock on wood.)

I started this one a few months ago, but the first chapter didn’t grab me, so I put it down.
This time through I got into the kick-butt characters and unique monster hunting style.
If you like a bit of mystery combined with horror check this one out.
I bought this one at a writing conference I attended a few months ago.
It’s a lovely fairy tale with a charming style and a fun mash-up.
Check it out if you’re a fairy tale junkie, and maybe even if you aren’t.
I picked this one up because I know one of the authors. It’s a bit off my beaten path, but it’s been fun and enlightening to read short stories from cultures I know very little about outside of mainstream entertainment.
I find I enjoy it most when I read one or two, put it down for a few days, then go back to it.
If you’d like to expand your cultural palette a bit this one is for you.

March Book Update

Tags : 

Hey all,

I’ve made a goal to read at least two books a month this year.

Sometimes I read a lot of books, and sometimes I don’t. So this year, like in my writing, I’m going for consistency.

The following are the books I either read or listened to in March.

I finished all of these in March! I’m actually ahead of my goal so far. (Knock on wood.)

A fun detective romp with the added bonus of monsters! Fun voice, twisty plot. Good times.
This isn’t usually my genre, but I enjoyed it!
I don’t even remember why I downloaded this book, but I really enjoyed it!
A great voice for the character, a unique magic system, and rampaging gingerbread cookies. Check this out if you love clean, clever, YA!
A quirky, futuristic tale with a Groundhog’s Day basis. Sort of.
I liked both characters, and while the story was a little slower than I prefer, I didn’t have a difficult time finishing the book.
