Wednesday Reads

I hope you were able to see the pictures I posted yesterday from my trip to the Smoky Mountains. If not and you want to, you can click HERE and see what little I took (haha!).

Traveling creates plenty of time to read (especially when I’m not driving!). Heck, I even crocheted another scarf (for a giveaway basket/bag for the Lori Foster Reader Author Get Together) on the drive home. Maybe I’ll post a picture of that on Friday. Anyway, here’s what I read during the week:

May 22: “Earth Enchanted” by Brynna Curry, a paranormal romance. Blurb from Goodreads: When telepath meets ex-cop, will it be death or diamonds. Writer Liv Corrigan has the worst luck with men -- her telepathy tends to make them run for the hills. When she meets widower and ex-cop Jack Roarke, she decides to keep her talent hidden. Things are looking up until their third date crashes and burns as the man who murdered Jack's wife turns out to be after him too. Injured, Jack retreats with Liv to his house under armed guard. But with Liv's mysteries rapidly coming unraveled, a diamond-thief killer to stop and passion in the air, the safe house is anything but safe for their hearts! Unfortunately, not what I expected. I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads.

May 26: “Vampire Most Wanted” by Lynsay Sands, a paranormal romance, the 20th book in the Argeneau vampire series. Blurb from book: For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy immortal in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she’ll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can’t outrun. Marcus Notte isn’t here to play games—especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out Lucian’s request—no matter how the seductive little mind-reading vamp feels about it. Basha doesn’t mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a host immortal involved. But if he wants to take her away, he’ll have to catch her first… I love this series so much and I became quickly wrapped up into the world and story. Plus, there are some pretty funny scenes. No surprise this book gets 5 stars on Goodreads.

Some days I wish I could read all the time (or at least during the time I spend on non-writing essentials). Of course, I’d probably be blind after two days. My eyes just aren’t what they used to be, I guess, and that’s just SAD. Good thing writing doesn’t affect my eyes the same way, then I’d be up a sh*t creek, wouldn’t I?

So… I had to turn on the A/C yesterday. How about you?

Happy reading!

Love vampire books. I should visit more often.

Came over because I was checking my blog hits, and saw your blog is a significant Referring Site.

Whoop Whoop. I love you. :)

Mac - You're making me blush, but are you sure those hits aren't just from ME? Haha :)

It was also pretty hot by us.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Lady Lilith - Yeah, it's been getting into the 80s all week, but the humidity has been the worst.

We turned our on upstairs. We have no attic, so it gets really hot up there.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Michael - We can't separate our air. If we could, I would make the upstairs colder at night, but it's all or nothing and I'm too cheap for all! :)

Lady Lilith said...

Looks like some interesting books.
It got pretty warm by us but we managed with a few fans on. Soon we will be needing the a/c

Air on here today too. But very very nice outside. I sat out there to do a little writing today. Was going to read but the dough was calling me and I had to get back into the kitchen.

But on days that I do read, like really really read, I think, by gosh this is peaceful.
