Romance, Historical, Contemporary, Paranormal, Young Adult, Book reviews, industry news, and commentary from a reader's point of view

Another long time reader who read romance novels in her teens, then took a long break before started back again about 15 years ago. She enjoys historical romance/fiction best, likes contemporaries, action- adventure and mysteries, will read suspense if there's no TSTL characters and is currently reading very few paranormals.

    July is going to be a good month for me reading wise. For YA: Pushing the Limits from Harlequin Teen comes out which looks really good, in addition The Foresaken an interesting YA dystopia from Lisa Stasse comes out. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson looks good as it is a take on Peter Pan.

    In terms of adult romance:
    * The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (July 10)
    *The Darkest Day by Britt Bury (thanks to following Jane on Goodreads, I pre-ordered this one…)
    *Olly Harris: Wedding Wrecker by Lucy V. Morgan

    and then onto August!!!

    Can’t wait for SHADOW OF NIGHT, the sequel to A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES by Deborah Harkness.

    Also in July’s TBR pile — Loretta Chase’s SCANDAL WEARS SATIN, Molly O’Keefe’s CAN’T BUY ME LOVE, and BEAUTIFUL RUINS by Jess Walter.

    I read Ruthie Knox’s About Last Night, which I liked, but I didn’t find it anywhere near as good as Ride with Me. I loved the characters and the premise of the story, but I thought the execution was off. The major problem for me was that the seriousness of Cath’s past mistakes wasn’t apparent until the story was pretty far along, and by then I was frustrated with the seemingly petty “Past Cath/New Cath” stuff and had pretty much written this book off as another contemporary without any real conflict. I mostly got over that once everything was revealed, but then I got annoyed with Nev’s mother and the inconsistent writing for her. And then the ending happened–I don’t want to spoil it, but it’s one of those things that I find cringe-inducing in real life and can’t suspend disbelief when I see it in fiction. I know a lot of people find it super romantic, though.

    I just finished Bedding Lord Ned by Sally MacKenzie. I first read the free novella The Duchess of Love, a prequel to BLD, which I liked a lot. BLD was mostly meh, though to be fair I’m not a fan of unrequited love so this book didn’t stand much of a chance. I thought the meddlesome family was overdone, but there was a fun vibe there that reminded me a bit of Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory series (which I’m currently rereading). I’m going to check out more of MacKenzie’s work…I like her voice.

    So far I have only two definite reads for July. Sherry Thomas’ Ravishing the Heiress is one. I’m a bit nervous about it after reading the excerpt, since it’s apparently another love at first sight story, but I’m a sucker for marriages of convenience, so we’ll see how it goes. The other is Shelley Laurenston’s Pack Challenge. I decided to look into Laurenston after Roslyn Holcomb mentioned her in the “Tolerance” comment thread, and I like the sound of this book.

    At the top of my wishlist for July are RAVISHING THE HEIRESS by Sherry Thomas and THIEF OF SHADOWS by Elizabeth Hoyt. Been looking forward to those two for months. I’ve heard good things about THE DARK KNIGHT by Elizabeth Elliott, a new-to-me author, so it’s on my radar. I’ve also got my eye on the new titles by Jill Shavlis (AT LAST), Jennifer Echols (SUCH A RUSH) and Roxanne St. Claire (DON’T YOU WISH). Will probably wait to see reviews on those.

    I’m so glad that ‘Scandal Wears Satin’, the second in the dressmaker series by Loretta Chase, will be out tomorrow – and for reasons known only to a really good therapist – I’m also looking forward this month to The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Echoes at Dawn by Maya Banks.

    This past month I bought and read the complete back list of Rachel Gibson books which started with her Crazy On You $1.99 novella. Just goes to show that those $2 books publishers are always bitchin’ about can lead to a lot of sales.

  6. RebeccaJ
    Jun 24, 2012 @ 18:51:14

    I bought Crazy on You and the book that followed Rescue Me, and being a big RG fan, I have to say I was really disappointed in Rescue Me. When she started with the Aqua Net and she designer high heels, I felt like I was reading every other RG book all over again.

  7. joanne
    Jun 24, 2012 @ 19:21:51

    @RebeccaJ: LOL! I thought they were all the same book! My excuse is that for me they were perfect ‘it’s too hot to think’ reads – but her hurry up endings – and so many other things that were duplicated from book to book were all too obvious when read back to back. Still, I may buy the next one depending on the weather *grin*.

    @Las: You will like “Pack Challenge” if you like comedies, Las. “Pack Challenge” and “Go Fetch” are still my favorite of hers. I reviewed “Pack Challenge” when it was first published (by the now defunct Triskelion Publishing) and that first edition was packed with errors, and they had to revise and reissue the ebook, however, even when I mentioned that issue in the review I still LOVED that book. She’s definitely a master in kick ass heroines, yummy Alpha heroes (whom the heroines definitely know how to handle) and humor. All of her books involve couples of different ethnicities. I like her Shelly Laurenston ones better than the G.A. Aiken ones. Sorry for the mouthful.

    I am going through a bout of the “blahs” so can’t say I am dying to get my hands on a particular book. All that being said, I have only two titles in my radar for July: “Ravishing the Heiress” by Sherry Thomas and “The Lady is a Vamp” by Lynsay Sands. There are two other books coming out that I have in my list, these come out on Tuesday: “Scandal Wears Satin” by Loretta Chase and “Thief of Shadows” by Elizabeth Hoyt. I also have one of my husband’s favorite authors in the list, Ben Aaranovitch, whose “Whispers Underground” comes out on July 31st. That one is urban fantasy.

    I am looking forward to Rachel Neumeier’s House of Shadow’s (gorgeous cover).
    Her Floating Islands, and City Under the Lake were excellent. I like that she has strong female characters.

    Not a romance, but Elfhome by Wen Spencer (Tinker book 3) comes out from Baen on July 3rd (the ebook has been available for about a week). I’m looking forward to reading it as I really liked the first two books.

    I just wanted to thank Jane for recommending Tammara Webber. I’m on Where You Are and loving her work. If anyone can recommend similar authors I want to know about them.

    Jun 25, 2012 @ 02:17:56

    I really enjoyed Song for Sophia, a new historical by debut author Moriah Densley. It’s about a musical savant former soldier and a woman on the run from her abusive father, who wants her pregnant in order to fully secure the family fortunes.

    Lots of angst, and reminded me of the old Laura Kinsale or the newer The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie (or something like that).

  14. Jill Sorenson
    Jun 25, 2012 @ 06:50:12

    Ditto on Tammara Webber. I just read Easy and really enjoyed it. I had some major issues with the heroine in the first half, but I kept reading and ended up satisfied with the way everything played out. This is an author and a subgenre that I’d like to glom. It felt modern and I loved the hero.

  15. Nikki
    Jun 25, 2012 @ 07:26:57

    I got the Elfhome ARC months ago and thought it was good. I admit though that she brought up new issues that I feel need to be addressed and the beginning read like there was a story in the middle that I should have read. I am really annoyed because the last book came out 5 years ago. I realize a lot of things happen in an authors life but sometimes I really get frustrated when authors take so long to come out with a book and it is really kind of short.

    I tried a few e-books that Amazon recommended this past weekend to see if there was a potentially good author that I could discover. A lot of them were self-published. My issues with these authors revolve around spelling and grammar errors which did not happen this time. However, with several of these authors I noticed a characterization of the heroine as intelligent but for some reason they stick their heads in the sand and make the same mistakes. For example, in Book 1 the heroine helps her estranged/ex-husband to do a job because they are both liable for debts he ran up. As it turns out she is involved in a genocidal attempt. However, in Book 2, the same people who were trying to kill her in book 1 get her to work for them and she doesn’t even try to misguide them and just does the job without investigating. So… is this something anyone else is seeing? Or was it just my luck this weekend? I think I find that nearly as annoying as the every heroine has been abused by a spouse or boyfriend theme.

    Jun 25, 2012 @ 07:36:02

    @Nikki:

    I’m not sure what specific books you read, but the idea of “intelligent” characters whose actions are anything but intelligent is something I’ve seen way too much (in both self-pubbed/small press and traditional/Big Six pubbed). It really gets old. I’d rather a character not be described as intelligent, which would make their questionable moves frustrating but not contradictory as well.

    I just finished Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey, which is one of her Kowalski books. I thought it was a lot of fun.

    I’m looking forward to Wake of the Bloody Angel by Alex Bledsoe. His Eddie LaCrosse books are an interesting mix of fantasy and detective fiction.

    Jun 25, 2012 @ 09:47:13

    I’m looking forward to both the new Sherry Thomas and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. The catch is do I want to get the Phillips in hardcover (like I have all her other books since Breathing Room) or will I succumb to convenience and get it on my Kindle. The sad truth is it’ll probably be both. Sherry Thomas will be on Kindle.

    I read Webber’s Easy earlier on this week and promptly scrolled back to the beginning and reread it all over again. Slower this time, and at a more reasonable hour of the day. ;)

    And then, most importantly of all, the ARC for Bujold’s Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance is out.

    @joanne: I’ve also read a few of RG’s ebook back issues and wonder if anyone else has found that Avon/HC has done an extrememly poor job scanning? I’ve read three so far and found that all have weird word switches, missing punctuation, and most frustratingly, no paragraph or section breaks so the story just bleeds together and you’re suddenly, startlingly in someone else’s POV. I thought $3.99 was a good deal but not for such bad quality and now I’m disappointed I spent that money for ebooks of pb’s I already have.

    I’m soooo looking forward to Gunmetal Magic which probably doesn’t count as a July release since it’s not out until the 31st but it’s the first ebook I’ve bothered to pre-order.

    @Rosie: Had no idea Elizabeth Elliot has a new book coming out! How long has it been and does anyone know why she stopped writing for so long? Although historicals haven’t been appealing lately, it’s been ages since I’ve sunk my teeth into a medieval so I’ll be sure to check out The Dark Knight.

    @Jennifer Estep – I also just bought the Mythos Academy bundle. Even though I’ve got the first book, it’s still a good price for the other two and I’m looking forward to reading them. Aside from that, Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost is at the top of my wishlist for the month.

    This month was an especially happy reading month for me. First, I read Lightning That Lingers, the reissued Loveswept Classic by Sharon and Tom Curtis, which I swear is probably one of the best category length romances ever written, then I followed it up with About Last Night by Ruthie Knox, which I’m sure will end up in my top ten reads for the year. Rereading Lightning after almost 30 years just reminded me of how amazing Sharon and Tom’s writing was, so lush and evocative, even with the shorter category word count. I think they stopped writing because Sharon had health problems, but if they could re-issue their books in ebook format, they’d make a ton of money. I keep crossing my fingers that I will see more of their books pop up.

    Last week I read two books, romance novels, that were written by Sylvain Reynard. I don’t really remember how I found out about them, but both books-they are a set-were really very good. “Dante’s Inferno” and “Dante’s Rapture” were both intense reads. Gabriel is a professor of Italian studies at Toronto University, specializing in Dante and Julianne is one of his graduate students.

    Julianne is also the best friend of Gabriel’s sister, but he does not remember her. They shared a moment 10 years ago, when Gabriel was at his lowest and Julianne was just a teenager. During the intervening years, Gabriel gets his life together and Julianne finishes high school and college. Both are quite intelligent but inside Julianne is still that naive young girl who has suffered at the hands of an alcoholic mother and abusive boyfriend. Gabriel was a drug addict who kicked the habit, but lets absolutely no one get close to him, not even his family who loves him.

    The first book deals with their (re)introduction to each other, and the beginnings of their relationship taking place during first term. This relationship is against school policies, so it is conducted in a clandestine type fashion, but there is a sweetness to it. The second book, which takes place during the second term, is where their love is tested.

    I do not know where this writer came from, if he has written any other books, but these two books certainly made quite an impression on me and I would recommend them highly.

    @Jess: I agree there are other characterizations where the author seems to make the heroine TSTL for the purposes of drama or allowing the hero to save her I guess. The other problem I have is when they seem to be sensible in every other aspect except that one glaring issue. I wonder if it is easier to create those situations for the purposes of moving the plot. To me, some of the basic issues that these couples will face on the way to getting together is more than enough to get that plot to move.

    Also, I know someone else said you can’t get Elfhome through Amazon. But you can still buy it at Baen and e-mail it to yourself! I am more excited because I can send it to both my Kindle and my Android.

    Like a lot of folks, I’ve been on a “new adult” reading kick (I have some issues with that term, but I guess it’s sticking). I really, really liked Easy, which I read thanks to Jane’s review, and I loved Something Like Normal, which I was fortunate enough to receive an early copy of.

    But the “new adult” novel that I adored the most that I can’t stop telling people about is Come See About Me by CK Kelly Martin, which has a college student main character. (Martin had to self-pub it, despite being a very acclaimed YA author.) Unlike a lot of the “new adult” titles, this is one that would not be shelved comfortably on the teen shelves. It’s definitely got adult themes, and affected me more than any book I’ve read in a long, long time. The romance is very different and I can’t stop telling everyone to read it, read it now.

  31. barbara
    Jun 25, 2012 @ 14:46:50

    Re: Wen Spencer: I have the first 2 books of Wen Spencer’s Tinker/Elfhome series in paper, but I really want them as ebooks. Wonder why they’re not available on Amazon? I just finished her four Ukiah Oregon books and really enjoyed them. Wish she’d write more in that series; it’s like she just quit in the middle of the series.

    I’ve been reading a fair amount of sci-fi/fantasy/UF recently, and will probably continue to work on my TBR pile in July. I’m reading the 3rd Harry Dresden book right now, and am trying to decide whether to continue w/ the series or not.

    I’m looking forward to the Sherry Thomas and Ilona Andrews releases in July. Connie Suttle also has another book in the Blood Destiny series coming out sometime during the month, so I’ll get that.

    I read Rachel Gibson’s Any Man of Mine last week (got it at the sale price–thanks). I’m not the biggest fan of contemps, but really liked this one so I’ll probably read more of the Chinooks books.

    @Lorenda Christensen: Thanks for the heads up–just ordered it!

You can buy drm-free, they send the .mobi format to your kindle mail account if you want. You can download as often as you want:

    @barbara: The writer comes from the Twilight fandom. The fanfic was called “The University of Edward Masem Masen” and the author was known there as Sebastien Robichaud, or SR. I don’t know if he was quite as big as EL James, but he was way up there. He and James (Icy in her fan incarnation) did a few interviews together, and she acknowledges him in the front matter of 50: “To SR, thank you for all the helpful advice from the start and for going first.”

    @Jane: I like the sound of Pushing the Limits; took note of that one. Loved Something Like Normal; would love to read more books where you get only the male’s POV. You mentioned Gayle Forman’s book (Where She Went) on another thread and I took note of it and the prequel, If I Stay.

    June was a great reading month. I got to try Lisa Kleypas for the first time, with her excellent Travis series, I finally (!!) got around to reading Fair Game (which I devoured, licked my fingers and wanted more =D), and, thanks to Jane, I discovered Tammara Weber (Easy and Good for You). And I re-read Just the Sexiest Man Alive; yes, I definitely have the Julie James gene, lol.

    Not really looking at any particular new releases for July, but I’m thinking of trying Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series and the third book comes out at the end of July. I want to read Judith Ivory’s Beast (Sherry Thomas cites it as the inspiration for her Beguiling the Beauty), and I’m looking forward to starting Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series.

    Of course, depending on what I come across between here and Goodreads, these lovely reading ambitions are highly subject to derailment ;-)

    I’ve been reading so very slowly lately, so for the past week I’ve been reading Sunshine by Robin McKinley, which was a “here let me give you this right off my bookshelf, I’ll buy another copy,” gift from a friend. It was slow going at first, but once I settled into the voice of the book, I really started loving it.

    I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a really interesting urban fantasy novel. As for what’s coming out soon, I’m waiting for Once Burned (the last chance for Jeaniene Frost to win my interest in her books back), and Gunmetal Magic (which I am so excited I can hardly stand it).

    Anxiously awaiting “Once Burned” and “Gunmetal Magic” as well.
    In the meantime I have been glomming onto every single Kristen Ashley book published because she brings the emotions and funny and sexy and I think I might be clinically obsessed. I’m reading “Sweet Dreams” right now and even though I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it as much because the h/h are in their 40s (gasp!) and he starts off with some truly heinous assholery I am (once again) totally engrossed.

    I need rec’s for good Spanish romance translations, preferably HQN Presents. Though, come to think of it, Harry Potter translations might work. Anybody have an opinion on them?

  50. Jill Sorenson
    Jun 27, 2012 @ 09:08:58

    @MaryK: I read a few chapters of the Spanish version of Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone. I’m not a native speaker but it looked like a good translation to me, and I read it out loud to a group of native speakers who laughed at the funny parts.

    One of my Harlequins is translated into Spanish. http://jillsorenson.com/blog/2012/05/21/spanish-translation/

    Jun 27, 2012 @ 10:32:23

    @Jill Sorenson: Thanks for the HP info. I know there’s a whole line of HQN translations, “Bianca” I think, but I’ve no way of knowing what the quality of the translations is like. I’m hoping some bilingual readers might steer me in the right direction.

    I’m abysmal at spoken Spanish because my ear to brain to English connection is way slow. I was pretty good at written Spanish in school, though, so I thought I might try reviving my skills with something I can read in English and Spanish.

  52. JenM
    Jun 27, 2012 @ 10:42:13

    Reading romance in Spanish is a great idea to strengthen the language skills! I’m terrible at spoken Spanish also, but I’d love to at least get better at reading it and romances are familiar enough that I could probably recognize some of the contextual clues easier than in literary fiction.

  53. Jill Sorenson
    Jun 27, 2012 @ 15:09:59

    @MaryK: @JenM: You can buy dual language versions of some literary novels, but not any romances that I know of. You might try Like Water for Chocolate. That was in Spanish first, and it’s an easy read IIRC. I taught English language learners (all Spanish speakers) for a short time and often brought in Spanish translations so the students could look at the texts side by side. We did Romeo and Juliet that way. One of my favorite teaching memories. :)

    Scott O’Dell’s Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Black Pearl are children’s novels with Spanish translations. I’d recommend these over Harry Potter because of the simpler words used.

    Sorry, I’m totally geeking out on this topic! I also listen to Spanish radio stations and watch films with the subtitles off (called it studying in college). I think it helps.

    @Jayne: Thanks Jayne. I use the Advanced Search quite a bit so I hope she finds a workable solution.

    @Loosheesh: I replaced it with an author + category + tag + search term. I hope that works okay. Because of the size of our database, a full text search that was being utilized by Advanced Search was causing us problems.

    @Jane: Thanks; will try it this way then.

    I am an absolute fan. I counted down the days til this book and I feel like maybe I expected too much… but this book fell short. After reading “Call me Irresistible” I just knew this one would be awesome. I found myself more interested in the side characters stories like Bree & Mike, Temple & Max, and even wanted there to be someone for Kristi.
