The semester started again at the beginning of October and I kind of lost my reading mojo. Thankfully Grimspace by Ann Aguirre reactivated it so not the whole month was wasted. Here is my list for the last month:
This is the first installment of the Fallen Angels series and this book was a real disappointment for me. After reading Lover Avenged I was counting the days to get my next J. R. Ward fix but I think this was also the crux. I imagined a masterpiece and what I got was nothing like that at all. I never should have made so high demands. The story in this book was Sololá and I didn’t really care for the hero/heroine couple. Jim Heron was OK but also nothing that rocked my world. The dog was nice. I think that says enough about me and Covet. This book killed m reading mojo for nearly two weeks. I’m not sure if I want to know what happens next. It gets 2 stars cuz the end was relative good and I enjoyed the last 80 pages of the book. I noticed that many other people likes this so perhaps it just reflects my disappointment.
2. Must Love Hellhounds Anthology
I have to admit I only read Nalini Singh’s Angel’s Judgment and Ilona Andrews’ Magic Mourns. I loved both stories. Magic Mourns is about Andrea and Raphael from her Kate Daniels series and this story is just perfect. I love the boudas and Raphael in particular and really enjoyed a book dedicated to them. Andrea’s character is wonderful realized and I couldn’t stop reading this story.
Angel’s Judgment is about Sara and Deacon and is placed in Nalini’s new Guild Hunter series. I love Nalini’s style of writing cuz it always grips me from the first sentence and doesn’t let me go till I read the last word. I really like this new world she created and it’s getting a great competition in my heart for the best Nalini Singh series.
I plan to read Meljean Brook’s other books in her series before reading this one. And I’m not sure if I want to read Charlaine Harris story cuz I don’t care about her Sookie Stackhouse series at all.
As perhaps mentioned a few times before I just love Ilona Andrews books and can’t get enough of them. And this one is definitely no exception. This is the first book in the Edge series and Ilona’s way of building a new world is wonderful. A perfect mix of action, witty fun and the right amount of romance. Perfect!

4. Grimspace (Sirantha Jax, #1) by Ann Aguirre
This book is the first in the Sirnatha Jax series. It throws in the middle of wonderful science fiction world. That’s the first thing I loved about this book. Man I missed science fiction. This book is full of action, betrayal, love and heartbreak. It’s very emotional and funny at the same time. A perfect mix. Full review to come!
5. Sweet Restraint by Beth Kery
This book is a standalone I won at the Bookbinge and OMFG that was hawt. As the cover shyly proclaims it’s about BDSM and a really naughty erotica. I enjoyed reading it. The pages flew by and to my surprise the book was over. I would have loved a little more story cuz at times at felt like reading p0rn. Some decisions the characters made where incomprehensible
for me but I think I’m just a little narrow minded sometimes.Entertaining book and a good quick read!
This is the second installment in the Sirantha Jax series and I loved this even more than the first. I admit it took me ages to finish but only cuz I had to cry every time I read a chapter. Not many people I talked to had the same experience with this book so it could be it was just me being a girl. *wink* Heartbreaking and gripping! Just took a Jax pause to find my inner peace again and not to end as a puddle of tears. Review to come after I finished Doubleblind(book 3 in this series).
7. Beloved Vampire (Vampire Queen, #4) by Joey W. Hill
I won this one at a giveaway over at the blog of The Knight Agency. I was a little uncertain at first cuz it’s always noted it’s book 4 in the Vampire Queen series. But I discovered with the help of the wonderful Sara Brookes that’s a standalone only written in the world. I loved the way Ms. Hill writes, her voice is fascinating and captured me from the start. This book is really sad and heartbreaking at some points but it didn’t made me cry(not sure if that is good or bad). The story was well developed and at some points I felt that I missed something cuz it happened in the previous books. Loved this book and have to get the rest of this series ASAP.
Ok and I admit it: I finished the last book today but my list was so short that I had to put it in.So, sue me! LOL
Hope you all have a nice Sunday!
