So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

It’s “What Are You Reading Time” Again!



Yet another Friday has rolled around. Strange how that happens, isn’t it? Almost like the calendar was planned that way! 😉  And we here at Bookin’ It (I’m using the Literary “We”, of course), want to know what you are reading this week. Tell, tell! How else am I supposed to keep my To Be Read list at the current level, which is somewhere between “An Awful Lot of Books” and “An Amount of Books Impossible to Be Read In A Dozen Lifetimes?”

I am just getting started on the latest in the Chicagoland Vampires series, Biting Bad, a series I have been following since the beginning. I have to say this book isn’t grabbing me as quickly as some in the series have done, probably because there is an awful lot of Mallory in the first few chapters. I don’t know about you other fans of Chicagoland, but I do not like Mallory. Never have. Probably never will. No matter how hard Chloe Neill tries to make her likable, forgivable, or even interesting (I’m over the blue hair, btw), she just doesn’t work for me. Luckily, there’s Merit who is forgivable, even when she’s being a dope, and Ethan, who can do no wrong in my book. Or Chloe Neill’s book, if I’m being accurate, here. Ethan Sullivan is one of my favorite vampity guys, in a world filled with a veritable GLUT of them to choose from. He stands out in the fangy crowd, to me, and thus I will finish the book, even if I have to read about the infinitely whiny Mallory, blecch. Merit and her Liege are worth it.

So, what are YOU reading that I need to know about? My last 2 books reviewed, Dead Iron and Libriomancer, were suggested to me by a fellow blogger, so I’m interested in knowing what your bookmark is resting in today! Share, please! And happy reading!

  1. I’m reading, Mary Jo Putney’s SOMETIMES A ROGUE. I love regencies, and I couldn’t resist pre-ordering it when I read the back cover copy, “When the very well bred Miss Sara Clarke-Townsend impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts her own life at risk.” That’s very similar to the premise of my contemporary romantic suspense, VEILED MIRROR, which I’ve just re-released. I guess great minds think alike (though I wouldn’t put myself in Mary Jo’s league.)


    • Hi, Frankie! SO nice to see you here! I used to read a lot of Regency type books, but haven’t lately. I’m making a mental note to myself to check this one out, but I’ll be checking “Veiled Mirror” first. I really enjoyed your novel, “Dangerous Talents,” btw, and have 2 more of your books on my Kindle, waiting for me to catch up. I’m always and forever behind these days. I have been reading your book, “Blazing A Trail,” though, and learning a lot!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Always nice to see you.


  2. I’m reading Heroics for Beginners; John Moore, a lighthearted parody of the classic ‘defeat the evil overlord’ story, and The Book Thief; Mark Zusak, about a young girl growing up in Nazi Germany. I found it on so many blog lists, I decided to take a chance on it, even though it sounded like it could be quite sad.

    Quite a difference in tone, but maybe they’ll balance each other out.


    • Oh, interesting sounding books, both, Caitlin! Marking them down, for sure. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment today. I’m always happy to hear what you are reading.


  3. Right now I am not reading much of anything new and still reading the mystery ” The Lost Journal”, bible study starts tomorrow so I am preparing for that. But once I get in groove of my bible study I have a few books ready to go….and you can probably guess one of them!! 🙂
