There is something about summer that makes me want to just read romance and fantasy books. Hopefully combined into one awesome package. I often pass over books I need to read in search of books that have that magic ingredient that is designed to transport me into the book as a side character. And while I've found some decent romance novels and some good fantasy, these aren't the books I'm looking for.

That aside, I did have some good reads these past two weeks.  Loved the ending to Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy, all the while she had me thinking she was bringing me to one place and we ended up somewhere far better.  I was pleased at having so many questions answered as lately it seems series novels either don't want to end or the author wants you to decide what happens to the characrer. While I'm all for inference and predictions and some ambiguity -  I want a mostly complete story - especially if it's the last book in the series.

We continue our quest for a book to use for our One Book program in February - hence the James Patterson novel.  And #WeNeedDiverseBooks (still) so check out MK Hutchins book Drift and read here as she talks about Obsidian and how it's used in her novel.


  1. I recently listened to The Angel Experiment on audio. It was pretty good and when I finish my Harry Potter Re-Read challenge against my son (he already beat me but I must follow through) I plan to continue the series.

    1. I recently completed a re-read of Harry Potter. It's still the best.

  2. I just did a photo collage for my IMWAYR post this week. Great minds :)

  3. I just did a photo collage for my IMWAYR post this week. Great minds :)

  4. Did you use Picasa Collage? So easy!

  5. Hi there Kathy, The Vigilante Poets caught my eye. Looks like a great read. Enjoy the rest of your reading week!

  6. I am on the list at my library for the last Grisha book! Glad to hear you liked it... so many final books in a series have disappointed me lately.


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
