I read something non romance. When The Bough Breaks (Alex Delaware BK 1) by Jonathan Kellerman. I've just gotten into reading mystery, cop case type stuff. I really liked it. This was written in the 80's so it was a bit dated but still a very good read. He is a retired( at 32) child psychologist. His best friend is a cop and he ask for Alex's help with a child witness . It had a lot of twist and turns.  I think I will continue on with the series. There is twenty something books in it.

I just finished Allison Brennan's The Kill. It was a good suspense with a touch of romance. Now, I am going to read JA The Mad, Bad Duke.

I'm between books sad and can't decide. I barely started Cool Shade by Weir they brought my food out too quick the other evening!) I'm also barely into a quilting mystery that's an interlibrary loan. I may try to get back to one or both of those (working night shift tonight) or grab some Harlequins/Love Inspireds or something from the stack of library books I picked up Friday - I have one Timely Vision that's a mystery that sounds pretty good so might take that with me and be optimistic we won't be too busy!

I started Divorced Desperate and Dating by Craig, a free ebook. Not my usual taste, but I'm enjoying it. I wonder if the ebook format makes the things I would normally find annoying less annoying somehow?

I finished Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh. It was good, I enjoyed it, although I think I like the books with Changeling members better.  smiley

Think I'm going to try Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall next.

DNF Finding Perfect by Susan Mallery.  I'd read some mixed reviews about the book but decided to try it anyway.  I loved the first two books in the series, but this one just didn't do it for me.  Very repetitive and slow.  I didn't care for the immaturity of the heroine, Pia, in the other books and since she is the focus of this book....well, you get the picture.  I've always enjoyed Mallery's books, but this one I could have skipped.

Went to Kmart this morning and picked up a Super Romance, Through the Sheriff's Eyes by Janice Kay Johnson.  This is a new to me author and I hope the book is good.

I just finished that book last night. While, I didn't love it as I did the 1st two, I didn't hate it either. Yes, Pia was immature, and the hero was too nice, LOL!

 

I just started Infamous by Suzanne Brockmann

Eileen- I'm glad you were able to finish it.  I kept finding myself putting it down for one reason or another and having to talk myself into picking it back up again.  Never a good sign for me.

Finished Through the Sheriff's Eyes tonight.....ugh, not a happy book.  Dealt with A LOT of spousal abuse and survivor's guilt. 

I need something happy to read, dang it! sad

I finished off Fairyville by Emma Holly this morning.  Not my favorite Emma Holly but worth the read.

I bought a couple of new ebooks over the weekend so I started on Colters' Lady by Maya Banks.  It was 20% off at BN.com so I finally bought it since I've been dying to read it and it won't be out in print until sometime next year.

I finished The Mad, Bad Duke and it was ok for me. I picked it up for a dollar on clearance at HPB, so I for sure got a good deal.

Back in Black was definitely better than My Man, Michael and I liked both of the romance storylines (Foster is fond of the double romance plots, and it's been hit and miss with me). 

I'm trying to finish off Monica McCarty's Campbell trilogy with Highland Scoundrel. It's moving pretty slow, but I like it so far.

Started listening to "Good Omens" by Pratchett and Gaimen.  It's as fun to listen to as it was to read. The reader sounds a bit like the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "book."

I went ahead and started Krahn's The Book of Seven Delights, but may put it down to read Lee's 61 Hours.

I'm working my way through Joan Johnston's Bitter Creek series.  I'm almost finished with "The Next Mrs. Blackthorne", so far I really like the series.  

I did pick up both "Wicked Appetite"  by Janet Evanovich and "Safe Haven" by Nicholas Sparks today, so I'll probably read those as soon as I'm done with this one and pick up the series later.

Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall was better than I thought it would be, but very very emotional. Made me cry twice.   Not alot of romance though, more of a story of a woman finding herself and her heritage.  If you like Amish books, you'd like this one.

I started on Waking Nightmare by Kylie Brant and so far its really good.  I can already tell she's going to be an auto buy author for me.

I'm still reading A Timely Vision by Joyce and Jim Lavene..I'll see how it goes. I got a box of harlequin super romances in the mail today and honestly for some reason these and Love Inspired are what's been appealing to me lately. I've been tired, distracted, short on time.. Ithink I like the short simpler storylines and luckily I've read some really good ones..hope the trend continues! I think A Timely Vision will be good too but will have to see.
