Weekly Reading Wrap-up to answer the three What questions with MizB of ShouldBeReading – What have you finished, What are you reading and What is next?
I finished a couple of silly things, The Mane Event and The Mane Attraction by Shelly Laurenston both paranormal romances with tons of crass humor with lots of messing around. My husband can’t stand any more muscley males on my bookcovers, so I picked up the kindle and finished Placenta of Love by Spike Marlowe, my first bizarro novella. Wacky, kinda dirty and tons of twisted fun. I also finished Beautiful Disaster, was that only a week ago now? Jeez, it felt a lot longer! And I finished The Elegance of the Hedgehog – oh man, that was soooooo good! It took me a while to get into it, I was whining about it a little (because it is high language and a lot of philosophy and some of the essays were just beyond me and the characters were just too damn smart, I mean come on!) and chuckling over a lot, but once I got into the story part as well as the little essays, I couldn’t put it down. So. Good. I cried. I think it’s a keeper actually.
I am currently reading Sinner’s Gin by Rhys Ford which is a mystery and m/m romance and I am loving the characters so far. I am also reading Last Kiss Goodnight, my first Gena Showalter book. It is really good so far and I want to know where the heck she is taking this story! I am also part way into Feed by Mira Grant as it was calling to me from my bookshelf, so I am around 100 pages into that one. It starts out with lots of zombie action, but the story follows a couple of bloggers who are reporting the news for the new presidential campaign, 20 years post zombie apocolypse. Totally interesting setting, it got slow and I picked up other things.
Next up I am going to read Supernatural Freak by Louisa Klein. I read the first chapter and it was action-packed, I am looking forward to jumping back into it. I am also going to get into The Silver Thread by Emigh Cannaday. I really enjoyed the first one, Balkan Magic and look forward to what those characters are up to. And because Miss Cannaday is super cool, she gave me GIVEAWAY copies of both Balkan Magic and The Silver Thread – woot! So keep your eyes peeled for that post.
