I'm reading Angel's Flight, which is the collection of Guild Hunter stories.  I'm actually catching up with this series! Which is made somewhat less impressive by the fact that I only started it last year... BUT a lot of my older series I just lost interest in so they're off the list. I wonder if there's a way to mark them "no longer interested" at FictFact?

Why yes there is! When you go into FictFact, look in your list for the books/serie you no longer want on your list. Click on the name of the SERIES and then click the "following" button at the top middle to unfollow .

Still reading When Blood Calls by JK Beck and it's pretty good.  Intense would be a good description.  I don't know yet if I'll continue the series, but it's keeping my interest.

I finished Thief by Tarryn Fisher. Fabulous ending to that trilogy.

Now reading a m/m, The Current Between Us.

That wasn't quite what I meant Nancy, though I did unfollow quite a few series! I meant to indicate "I'm not going to read any more of these" without losing the info on the ones I'd read. Because I am Anal. ;-)

I read Jo Goodman's A Season to be Sinful, great book, not sure what the title had to do with the book. Finished The Dark Lady and will continue this dark romance series. So now I have started Jo Goodman's Let Me Be The One.

Yeah, you can do that too. Go to a series you want to quit but save and for the books you don't want to read, use the drop down and instead of to be read or read, click Skipped. And just skip the rest of the series.

I finished off Sharing Hailey, an ebook I started last night.  It was good but it did have a big eyeroll TSTL heroine moment. 

Heroine's ex was stalking her, she goes home and sees his car there and he's on the porch.  Instead of driving away, she thinks, I have to get rid of him before my boyfriends get home and actually stops and gets out of the car to talk to him.  This is after he's followed her on vacation, had a violent confrontation with her brother and tried to choke her pregnant sister in law.  Oh, and he tried to break into her home also while she was gone and had left her threating messages plus had gotten physical with her before.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Now, I'm back to Hooked by Cat Johnson.

Finished off Hooked last night.  Couldn't go to bed until I'd finished.

Now, I'm not reading anything.  I think I'll start On Her Masters Secret Service by Lexi Blake in anticipation of the release tomorrow of the next in that series.

The Current Between Us was very good.

I got JR Ward's Possession in the mail today. I forgot that I had pre-ordered it back in April, until i got an email yesterday morning saying it was shipped. Gotta love Amazon Prime. Woohoo!! I probably wont be starting it til late this evening or maybe in the morning. Got a crazy headache today.  no

I'm still working on Motorcycle Man.  Meh, still don't like Tack, though he is getting a *bit* better.  I also started doing a re-read of Outlander, which I am enjoying, as it's been a couple of years since the last re-read.  As much as I look forward to WIMOHB, I think that the first 3 books of the series are the best, and it's those that I keep going back to.  The last one was pretty tedious for me, and I'll probably try a re-read of it before the new one comes out, but may just have to skim.

Seemed to be tuck on this mystery series but will try something else after this one...maybe! Started listening to the audio of Size 12Is not Fat by Meg Cabot. Read this one a few years ago

When Blood Calls by JK Beck took a turn in to TSTL-land.   2 stars at best.

Willa, it was an awesome read, but I loved her Let Me Be the One even more...that was a powerful emotional read.

Read One Sweet Ride by Jaci Burton, and liked it a little better than the last one in this series (can barely remember that one, or the one before that).

Starting Wethering the Storm by Samantha Towle.

Headaches still there today, but better than yesterday, so I'm jumping into Possession.

I settled on Carter Reed by Tijan. So far it's okay but it's a little confusing. I feel like I'm missing some backstory except there's no backstory to be missing.

Rebecca, I feel like that too.  Plenty on the TBR, but nothing appeals at the moment.  That's another reason I'm doing a re-read.

I finished Motorcycle Man, finally.  Fine, Tack was ok in the end, but I lost respect for him early on and never got it all back.  Here ends my KA bender- I am definitely taking a break before trying any of her other series.  Right now I guess I will focus on my Outlander re-read and see if I can stomach going back to Andersen's Some Like it Hot before I put it on my dnf shelf.

Keri, yes that is my favorite in that series. It's one of my "pull out the read favorite scenes" books that I'll probably never replace with an ebook.

I started Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt. It's good but hasn't really caught fire for me. Solid read.

Only a few chapters into Possession, but have already had a peek at John Matthew and Xhex. That makes me happy. cheeky

Susanna, you are going to read Killing Floor? It is an awesome read, I just can't see you reading it. :-) Halfway through Jo Goodman's Never Love a Law Man and the back and forth between Wyatt and Rachel and been pretty funny at times. I am also reading Kristen Ashley, Matilda The superwitch and I am not loving the format she wrote the book in (I guess diary format just doesn't work for me) We don't get the context we need to fully appreciate the scene. I just wish she would have wrote a straight forward book and man does the editing suck! It is painful to read IMO. (If I read one more ACK!! I will hurl.
