I usually set these up in advance on Saturday, so things may have changed since then.
- Strange Weather by Joe Hill – Strange Weather turned out to be a pretty good set of stories. Definitely not Joe Hill’s best work, but it does summarize his styles and ability quite nicely. I think Snapshot and Loaded are the two that will stick with me.
- How Beauty Met the Beast by Jax Garren – This is a romance with light fantasy and steampunk elements. The romance is surprisingly sweet and fulfilling in spite of the rather racy beginning.
- The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely – Another romance thanks to the Audible Romance Package which I’m trying out right now (hooray for free trails). I really like Lauren Blakely’s work. She really knows how to make likable characters who mesh really well, and with stories that make you crave more.
- The Children of Hurin by J.R.R Tolkien – I’m a few days behind on this one, mostly because I’ve either been working or sleeping. I don’t really listen to epic fantasy while at work, I’ve learned it’s just too much detail to properly absorb while busy.
- Gifted Thief by Helen Harper – This is listed as a romance, but it’s more of a straightforward paranormal fantasy with a side of romance. I quite like this one, the MC is quirky and self-reliant.
- Sterling by Dannika Dark – I’ve seen a few trusted reviewers say they enjoy this series…but so far it’s only making me roll my eyes and scoff. Super alpha males are not my cup of tea, and I get really irritated at the well-meaning controlling issue that keeps popping up. The fantasy elements are a little odd as well, but not bad.
