Another month over and I can't say where the days went. It didn't feel like 31 days at all. Got some reading done but not as much as I wished but I blogged more than I wanted, just not here, as it seems. But I'm in a reviewing mood at the moment so I will hopefully get some more done for this blog. We will see. Here is what I read in August:
1. No Greater Pleasure (An Order of Solace Novel #2) by Megan Hart
Again a heartbreaking story. I love her Order of Solace world even if it seems strange and foreign most of the time. I love that her heroines are so dedicated to their mission. The hero in this one was a real piece of work and he never really won my heart but I was fascinated by the story so it was okay.
2. Bed of Roses (Bride Quartet #2) by Nora Roberts
I love Nora Roberts. Her books are always so wonderful. They make me feel good and make me smile so much. It's the easy way the characters interact and how the whole lovestory works out. Wonderful. I loved the hero in this book. Just delicious.
3. Savor the Moment (Bride Quartet #3) by Nora Roberts
I expected much from this book cuz the heroine always was my favorite in the other books. I adore her witty anbd snarky comments but in this book she seemed a bit changed. I did miss that a bit but the story was again good and I can't wait for the the last book. I want to see Parker and that mechanic getting a HEA. That will be so much fun. *g*
4. The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (Strangely Beautiful #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber (my review)
This book totally rocked my world. I had a few reservations before starting but I loved this book to pieces. The characters are wonderful and Ms Hieber's writing is so unique and descriptive. Just amazing. I started book 2 this morning and I'm already hooked again.
I also made a dual review with the wonderful pattepoilue at Book Lovers Inc here.
5. Three Over Par by Cathryn Brunet (my review)
This was one of the most emotional erotica I ever read. I love how the story was told, first our of the heroine's memories and later while she experienced it. It made me cry and was sexy as hell. I know I won't lose Ms Brunet from my radar. Highly recommended read.
6. Kiss of the Rose: The Tudor Vampire Chronicles by Kate Pearce (my review)
Wonderful mix of historical and paranormal romance. The world-building is nice and I really like the characters. It has a decent mystery and I loved whole the story unfolded one piece at a time. I know I can't wait to get my hands on book 2 next year.
7. Red Demon (Gods of Midnight #3) by Deidre Knight (my review)
I waited so long for this and it made me rediscover why I love Ms Knights' writing so much. She knows how to capture a character- she makes them so real and give them depth. I love how she knits future storylines into the plot and I'm so impatient to read them all. It's like waiting for Xmas. LOL
8. Rampant by Saskia Walker (my review)
This book was a disappointment for me. I can't even say why I just didn't click with me. I hate to DNF a book but I just couldn't bring myself to read one more page. It was a struggle.
9. Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy #1) by Carolyn Crane
I actually finished this one on September 1st but I'm cheating. I loved this book. It so deserves the title. It was just awesome: wonderful story, unbelievable freaky misfit characters, funny and full of WIN. Review to come.
What did you read in August? Anything I shouldn't miss?
