I'm reading a kindle freebie/cheapie - Foreclosed- supposedly a christian mystery though the christian part is kinda weak IMO but overall I'm liking it ok - the main character isn't weak but was expecting some romance with another guy she keeps 'fighting' with but the mystery seems kinda loose - not well connected and I'm around 60% into the book.

I finally updated my library card, which I hadn't used in probably 15 years, and now I can borrow ebooks.

Borrowed Gone Girl, which started slow but picked up half way. A little unrealisted but wow!, very crazy. I also borrowed Sylvia Day's Blood & Roses novella. I liked it but it was really, really short. She should be offering that one for free. Not a good idea to alienate even more of her readers by charging $2 for 40 or so pages.

Not sure what's next.

Still struggling trying to find something to stay with. Nothing is clicking with me.

Glad you liked it Melissa -- it didn't do a thing for me. :-(

I just found out the hero of Sherry Thomas' new book is one of Gigi's exes from _Private Arrangements_, so I'm rereading that. Not a hardship. :-)

I am reading the Beautiful Creatures books and loving them. About halfway through the second book.

Oh really Willa?? I will have to go do a re-read myself.  Sherry that is a great book, but hard at times.  Turns out I just needed to find the right genre, I just sped through Long's What I Did For A Duke.   Awesome read!

Yes, and he and his wife are actually mentioned fairly often in PA. This is the guy that Gigi turned to when she was so depressed after Copenhagen, so it'll be interesting if that shows up in the story. Anyway, I was up til 1... love this book so much!

Now reading Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan. Cute book, great sense of place.

I need to finish the Beautiful Creatures books. I think I left off on book 3.

I'm reading Suicide Watch by Kelley York. Not sure what genre I would even consider it to be. There seems to be a little new adult m/m romance. I dont know. I'm really enjoying it though.

I'm reading Revenge by Jasmine Haynes - wow. think it was a kindle freebie or 99 ct deal. different from what I've read - erotic romance but in this one the 'hero' likes his woman to come back to him after screwing another man and having that man's stuff all over her then licks it off and has sex with her while hearing all that the other guy did to her. have to say it's intersting though kinda making me gag blush I've read Lora Leigh where themen like to share but dont' recall ever reading where one wanted to smell and taste another man's stuff all over his woman...

will probalby go to something tame after this one - this one I think is fairly short- I'm at 60% already and haven't spent much time reading it...

I can't seem to find anything else that catches my interest, so I'm still reading KA's backlist.  I finished the Ghost/Reincarnation series, and now I'm on Mathilde Super Witch.  So far it's good.  I like that these books don't have the Alpha guys who can be so rude and thoughtless (not that I don't love those guys), it's nice to have a change, though.  

I think I really need to spend some time re-reading a few from my keeper shelf, but those boxes (all 16 of them) haven't made it into the new house to be unpacked yet.

I finished Suicide Watch. Very good, but I still dont know what genre I would consider it to be. LOL

Now reading Red Hill by Jamie McGuire.

finished Revenge - would have been good if it'd been fleshed outa  bit more- the sappy HEA wasn't too believable for me since I never saw them grow as a couple. it's free on kindle still.

started a new book by Tina Russo - christian author for love inspired- this is an indie book though and pretty good - very very short romances - probably a couple pages if in print. still pretty good for being so short.

Oh my. I musta missed this when I was in here this morning. I cant say I've ever read something like that either. But I just picked it up!!!  LOL

Nice review Willa! I have an old worn used copy of that book that I don't think I ever read. I'll have to look for it.

Great revew Willa, I agree with everything. The only thing I wished was for a longer ending. I finished Sarah McCarty's Reaper's Justice and it was good.

Finished To Have and To Hold by Patricia Gaffney.  Keri you were right, it was a difficult book in the beginning, but once he "reformed" it became boring for me.  2 stars

I'm reading Lucky Stars by Kristen Ashley. Started with a sample and ended up ordering it, along with the rest of her ghost/reincarnation series. Never thought I'd enjoy ghost stories.

(Really strange, I lost the spell check icon.)

I did a reread of Until the Sun Falls From the Sky by Kristin Ashley. It took me almost a week because I've been on a Psych marathon on Netflix. Now I'm reading Sweet Home by Tillie Cole. It's about a British girl who goes to the University of Alabama for her Master's degree and meets the quarteback for the football team. So far it's really sweet and it's funny how she doesn't understand how big football is in the South, especially in Alabama.
