Weekly reading, vol. 17

Hello, happy Sunday, hope you’re doing okay, what sort of Pokemon have you caught, etc. I’m in a teeny reading slump at the moment, but I’ve just loaded a bunch of Hollis Shiloh books onto my Kindle so I’m hoping they’ll help me get through the bleh. Meanwhile, here’s what I read this week: I reread Carry the Ocean by Heidi Cullinan (first read back in March), mainly because I’ve been trying to indulge in Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 16

Howdy! That was some break, there. It worked out great for me, though, as I think I finally got some of my blogging mojo back. I’m gonna try this weekly round-up thing again and see if I can stick to it. Meanwhile, I have been (semi) active on Twitter and VERY active on Goodreads, so if y’all want to follow me on either of those channels in case this one ever goes dark again. Which Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 12

I mean, eventually I’ll get back on schedule with these. For now, here’s what I read for the week of February 14-20, 2016.

I immediately read Astounding! , a m/m romance between a scifi managzine editor and an alien. Alien!hero is stranded on Earth after coming back in the 1950s to observe humankind. All he wants Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 11

Totally forgot to post this on Sunday, whoops! My first book for this week was Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper , a contemporary romance starring a transgender PoC protag with a death metal band and a wannabe artist with a history of bad boyfriends. It’s got super hot sexytimes and a slow-burn emotional connection, and you can read it for free! I very much enjoyed it, despite how prickly all the characters were. Read More …

Tournament of Losers by Megan Derr

Previous attempts at Megan Derr’s older books have been somewhat hit-or-miss, but the summary for Tournament of Losers sounded like something right up my alley, so I decided to give it a go. And that was an EXCELLENT DECISION, y’all! Tournament of Losers is the BEST Megan Derr book I’ve read yet! I think it’s a combo of increased writing skills + many tropes I adore + completely adorable characters + wonderful worldbuilding. One of Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 10

I’ve been trying to get this post up for five days now and it’s still giving me problems. Bleh. But at least I’ve managed to get SOMETHING up this week! So my reading for this week didn’t start off that great. I thought a short story would cleanse my palate between books, so I tried The Sacrificial Knight by Kestrel Drake , a fantasy m/m romance with dragons! And knights! And, like, way too much Read More …
