Our Week in Books – Week 14, 2013

I had a week off from work this week, lots of reading time I thought – it would appear not, not sure what I did all week but did not read anywhere near as much as I expected!

I started the week with book two in the key trilogy by Nora Roberts – Key of Knowledge. This is probably my favourite series by this author, it has a paranormal basis with of course a solid romance running through. I love the characters and am looking forward to reading the final book in this trilogy even if it is very far fetched. If you are thinking about reading it start with the first one – Key of light. 4.5 stars.

I then decided to read some books on my Kindle which have been building up. I started with Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid by Maureen Driscoll and really enjoyed it. A very romantic story with strong characters – the heroine is working as an unofficial surgeon in a small village, shunned by people she once thought of as friends after a major scandal (for the 19th Century anyway!). The hero is part of a large ton family – the Kellingtons, the great thing is there are books about all the family members – yay! It did not always seem appropriate to the period in either language or deeds but I still enjoyed it – 4 stars

I then moved on to The Dying Game by Beverley Barton. I always enjoy her books, the plots are so good and keep you guessing all the way. Those of you who enjoy a good romantic suspense should give her books a try, she has a lot! 4.5 stars

My next book is currently in progress – Blood Born by Linda Howard and Linda Jones, very good so far – comments to follow next week.

Unfortunately I am now back at work – something else to interfere with my reading time!

Well I failed miserably on the reading front this week, as I have been doing spring cleaning and getting some of the clutter out of the house. There have also been several PC games I have been waiting for, so in the last few weeks have finished the new Tombraider, Bioshock Infinite and Dead Space 3, all highly recommended!

I have read some more of The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan but am taking another break to start Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan.  It’s great so far, excellent beginning and there should be a review up this week!

That’s all from me for now… must try harder!! 😉

I'm a 40 something avid reader of pretty much anything, have 2 kids, a cat and a husband along with a 2 seater convertible (mid life crisis car!). While I read pretty much anything I particularly enjoy paranormal romance, historical romance and general romance - guess I am sucker for a happy ending.
