Since I last had this post, I’ve read quite a few books! I hope you’ll check out at least two of them as they are on the shelves now!
One is FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Peterfreund. I read this last month and I loved it. It’s sitting beside me because I’m sharing the book with a friend of mine’s daughter. It’s a YA book, but I think if you don’t usually read YA books, this is a great one to start with. It’s a post-Apocalyptic retelling of Jane Austen’s PERSUASION and it’s brilliant. And you don’t need to have read PERSUASION. I read it in college, but I don’t remember anything about it. (I’m not entirely sure I actually read it…might have been one of those situations where I was supposed to read it and never got around to it, LOL!)
Day before yesterday, I finished BLAZING MIDSUMMER NIGHTS by our own Leslie Kelly. It’s a Blaze, super-hot and brilliant. I wish I could adequately express how the sheer fabulousness of Leslie’s writing swept me away…it really did. The characters are so much fun and the hero…well, Xander McKinley has risen to the top three of my heroes that Leslie has written. He’s just so…dreamy. Smart, hard-working, quick-witted. It was love at first sight between us. And her heroine, Mimi, is really complex and likable. GREAT BOOK!
Week before last, I read THREE WEDDINGS AND A MURDER. Or a least, I read two of the four novellas in the collection. As you all know, I’m a historical romance junkie and the stories by Tessa Dare and Courtney Milan are amazing. A portion of the sales of this book go toward breast cancer research, so you can feel very good about buying.
So…what are you reading?
BTW, I have to say THANK YOU to everyone who has posted or who will post about the Plotmonkey books that they’ve read recently. You have no idea how much it means to each of us that you read our books. We know that books are expensive and a luxury and we are honored and humbled that you trust us to entertain you with our stories. Thank you!!!
