Mar 7: “The Girl and the Raven” by Pauline Gruber, a paranormal young adult novel. Blurb from Goodreads: Sixteen-year-old Lucy Walker just wants a normal life, until she learns she is half-witch, half-demon. Now she's got other problems, like keeping her demon dad from killing her boyfriend, keeping the witches in her life from killing her demon dad, and keeping her non-supernatural friends safe from both sides. All the while she’s desperately searching for the family raven that carries her magical legacy. She's walking a tightrope between good and evil, drawn to both, uncertain which she will ultimately choose. I’m beginning to think I shouldn’t read any more YA books. I gave this 3 stars on Goodreads.
Mar 9: “Dangerous Affairs” by Nina Pierce, three erotic romance novellas (“Blind Her With Bliss,” “Deceive Her With Desire,” and “Cheat Her With Charm”). Blurb from back: Three sisters looking for love. Three men seeking redemption. Three reckless romances that will push each of them into the dangerous world of revenge. I enjoyed reading these stories back-to-back. It was like reading one regular-sized book, with different little stories of each sister, but a continuous story about the family. If not for the wacked out ending in the last, I’d be giving this book top honors, instead it gets 4 stars on Goodreads. Still, it was such a joy to read something I didn’t have to struggle with.
