2013 – A bookish year

 So another year is behind us and in spite of the personal life stuff going on resulting in the dearth of reviews, reading was still going on behind the scenes.

So what books made us sit up and beg?

Grete

The Daylight War by Peter V. Brett – The fantastic third book in the Demon Cycle.

Fortress Frontier by Myke Cole – Military sci-fi with superheroes.  This second book was an excellent addition to the Shadow Ops series.

Abaddon’s Gate by James S.A. Corey – This series needs to be on either the big or small screen – any screen!  Until then it’s an amazing sci-fi story and this third book was a brilliant addition to the Expanse.

Parasite by Mira Grant – An amazingly creepy but riveting novel. If you liked her Newsflesh trilogy, you are going to love this!

Kevin HearneThe Iron Druid Chronicles was a series that entranced me so much, I ended up romping through and didn’t take time to review.  It’s a fantastic series and one I will be re-reading, slower this time, so I can actually do reviews!

Bound by Night by Larissa Ione – The first in a new series by Larissa and just as exciting as her Demonica/Lords of Deliverance.  Speaking of which, the next book in that series, Reaver, is on this list too as it was utterly fantastic and had my jaw dropping several times as things were revealed.

Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones – This is another series I love so much that I keep racing through them and end up not reviewing.  It’s a habit I really have to stop as my memory is just not up to it these days!  Charley Davidson is one of my favourite paranormal heroines and I just can’t get enough of her!

Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon – I loved, loved, loved this book.  I cried, I laughed, I may have shouted a few times.  A worthy companion to Acheron and a brilliant addition to the Dark-Hunter’s series.  It does take you through the wringer though!

The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty – I absolutely loved this light hearted approach to the paranormal and look forward to the next one, out this year!

Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan – A gritty and powerful epic fantasy debut.  I loved the magic system he devised and I hold high hopes for the second book.

Ice Forged by Gail Z. Martin – First in a new series by Gail and it’s off to a promising start.  I loved her two previous series a lot so it had a lot to live up to!  Looking forward to book two!

J.D. Robb – Thanks to Tracey, I discovered the In Death series and devoured the whole lot one after the other.  It amazed me how good they are and how, even 35+ books in, they are still extremely enjoyable and great reads.

Watch Your Back by Karen Rose – So many of Karen’s books have characters that appear or are related to people in other novels and this one felt like it had been a long time coming.  It was utterly amazing and prompted me to go back and read ALL the previous books!

Blood Song by Anthony Ryan – This book honestly surprised me and I’m annoyed at myself that I didn’t do a review after I read it, as it so very much deserved it.  It’s an amazingly gritty fantasy, written with a single focus and I urge anyone who loved David Gemmell’s work to pick this up.  I will be re-reading this (and reviewing this time, dammit)!

Unseen by Karin Slaughter – Every time I think Karin has outdone herself, she releases the next book and raises the bar even higher.  I can’t get enough of Will Trent and Sara Linton!

Lover at Last by J.R. Ward – The latest book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series was hotly anticipated and I was not left disappointed!

Tracey

While my list has some similar ones to Grete, I also have some totally different genres to her.  Being much more of a romantic sap, it will come as no surprise that I have a number of romances on my list.

The books I share Grete’s love for are :

Styxx of course – the most anticipated book of the year for me and one that did not disappoint. Probably my book of the year!

Reaver by Larissa Ione – another eagerly awaited novel that ticked all the boxes for me.

The In Death series by J.D. Robb – I read all 35 books in 4 weeks and absolutely loved them.

For me though the year was all about romance! There were books from my favourite romance authors: Stephanie Laurens, Eloisa James, Julia Quinn, Sarah MacLean and Sarah Morgan.

I really cannot express all the books that I loved this year, I read well over 100 of them! Since I tend to read books I know I will enjoy, it is so hard to only pick a few.

If I was to recommend a few books to other readers I would go with the following:

Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan – I have been a fan of Ms. Morgan for many years, reading all her Mills and Boon books and it was great to have a longer book to enjoy. This is romance at its best and a great start to a new series.

Nora Roberts has featured heavily in my reading this year but a trilogy I particularly enjoyed was the Key Trilogy – Key of Light, Key of Knowledge and Key of Valour. This has a paranormal slant with Ms. Roberts’ usual excellent romance story.

Sarah MacLean’s Rules of Scoundrels series is recommended reading, particularity if you enjoy historical romance. I have loved all the books in this series and look forward to the next one hopefully coming in 2014!

Will definitely be doing more reviews this year, even if only a few lines, there are so many great books I want to share my love of.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Week in Books – Week 27, 2013

 Tracey

This week I read six books – in no particular order.

I read a couple more of the In Death series by J.D. Robb – Vengeance in Death and Holiday in Death. Both excellent books and each rated at 4.5 stars. I highly recommend reading this series if you are a fan of detective stories with a good dollop of romance. As the series goes on there is still romance but definitely much less than in the first couple of books.  Surprisingly for me, I don’t mind! The romance that’s there is great but the stories themselves are really good.

I finished off Key of Valor by Nora Roberts and again really enjoyed that, the Key Trilogy comes to an end with this book. You definitely need to read the series in order however, as they do follow on almost seamlessly.

I also read three historical romances this week – the first was More Than a Mistress by Mary Balogh. I find Ms. Balogh’s books very romantic and they always manage to elicit a very satisfied sigh at the end and this one is no exception – 4 stars.

I last two were Mills & Boon books by Helen Dickson – A Question of Marriage and The Wedding Wager. I loved both of these regency era romances with very feisty heroines and would give them both 4 stars.

So there you have it, a nice healthy dose of romance for me this week – nothing new there then!

 Grete

I’m still caught up in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire but sadly I’m almost finished with the available books.  I finished A Feast For Crows, moved swiftly on to A Dance With Dragons Part 1: Dreams and Dust and am now reading A Dance With Dragons Part 2: After The Feast.  I don’t think I am going to know what to do with myself but will be avidly for news of when Winds of Winter will be released!

That’s all from me this week, happy reading!

Our Week in Books – Week 26, 2013

 Tracey

This week was all about J.D. Robb and her In Death series. I have been meaning to start this series for a while now, since I really enjoy the books written by Nora Roberts. I managed to pick up the first one – Naked in Death and now I am hooked! I raced through that one (full review coming soon), and bought the second one on my kindle – Glory in Death which was just as good.

Fortunately I had books three (Immortal in Death) and five (Ceremony in Death), so I was able to carry on with the series. I am totally loving it and on the one hand I’m really excited there are so many to read, but on the other my purse is saying noooooooo!

This series follows Lieutenant Eve Dallas, a homicide detective, through various cases and in my opinion the books are getting better as I go along. While not the pure romance I usually enjoy, there is enough romance in this to satisfy me, along with great mysteries.

Having run out of J.D. Robb to read for now I picked up a contemporary romance by J.R. Ward called An Irresistible Bachelor. a very enjoyable sexy romance – full review to come later.

I am currently in the process of reading Key of Valor which is the third book in the Key Trilogy by Nora Roberts. In my opinion this is one of her best series.

 Grete

My days for the last two weeks have been entrenched in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire!

I’ve romped through A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords Part One: Steel and Snow, A Storm of Swords Part Two: Blood and Gold, and am now a good way into a Feast of Crows.  Nice, light reading (not!) I am going to feel a bit lost when I’ve run out of books and I will have joined the masses waiting for the next to be released 😉

I’ve really enjoyed it so far and it has kept me very entertained.  It can be difficult to separate some of it from the TV show but in my opinion, both stand up on their own merit and I’m really impressed with how well it’s been translated to the small screen.  I will try to do a ‘series so far’ review but it will be difficult because of spoilers and of course the TV Show.

That’s all folks!

Our Week in Books – Week 24, 2013

 Tracey

I managed to read 5 books this week. I picked up one by Debra Webb called Traceless which was really good. A romantic suspense with so much more going on than a simple murder. The hero really had a rough ride having spent 10 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, and this story focuses on him trying to get to the bottom of who did it. Really tense in places and kept me glued throughout. My only criticism would be that people still got away with things they shouldn’t have done, and I can’t say any more than that without giving the ending away! – 4.5 stars

Having enjoyed the above book I was delighted to find I had another Debra Webb in my collection called Nameless. It’s another romantic suspense with a hero that was wronged in the past, and while this was good it didn’t grab me as much as Traceless did. Definitely worth a read though if you like this type of book – 4 stars

Lois Lane Tells All by Karen Hawkins was my next book. It’s a romantic comedy that for me did not really take off. While I enjoyed the relationship between the protagonists, the rest of the story was a bit odd and I didn’t really find it very humorous (although I think it was meant to be). Not my favourite and while I would read more books by this author if they came my way, I wouldn’t actively seek them out – 2 stars

Next was a Mills and Boon romance – The Secret Sinclair by Cathy Williams. A good romance with not much to the story other than the relationship building, always enjoyable but the ending came up a bit quickly – 3 stars.

Finally this week I read not Quite a Lady by Loretta Chase – my good old favourite genre historical romance.  This was the first one I have read by Ms. Chase and I really enjoyed it. Full review coming later this week – 4.5 stars.

 Grete

Well the good news is my back is getting easier, the bad news is I’m trying to move around more which means less time for reading.  I’m also so behind in reviews I shall get to do some good ‘sitting upright’ exercises 😉

I finished Abaddon’s Gate by James S.A. Corey and it was amazing, I love everything about this series and all three books so far, of The Expanse have been solid 5 star reads.  Reviews are coming (honest!)

Winter is also coming (see what I did there?) as I decided I needed to re-read A Game of Thrones.  I can’t remember where I got up to in the series the first time round (perhaps book 2 and then was waiting for book 3) and also as my memory isn’t as good as it used to be, I wanted to catch up.  I love the TV series as well and it was bugging me I couldn’t remember key events that might be coming up! I thoroughly enjoyed my romp through the first book and am now into book 2, A Clash of Kings.  I do like my light reading 😉

So that’s it from me!

Tracey is coming to visit at the weekend and we usually end up doing at least a little bit of book shopping… and also I love the fact that when she’s here, we can comfortably read in the same room in utter silence and have brief conversations about our books 😉

Have a good week x

Our Week in Books – Week 23, 2013

 Tracey

This week I varied my reading a bit, although it wouldn’t be right not to have any historical romance in there!

The first historical romance I read this week was Emma and the Earl by Paula Marshall, a tale of  a young penniless woman who was forced to become governess to the children of the man she nearly married when she was rich. Of course he doesn’t recognize her but she has never forgotten him! This was a very enjoyable story, a good read and a solid romance – 4 stars.

Scandals by Georgina Devon was the other regency romance I read this week, and it took me a while to warm up to the hero – for most of the book I wanted to slap him. Enjoyable, but not one of my favourites although it did get quite intense at times – 3 stars.

Feeling like a change I delved back into the world of the Dark Hunters reading Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I absolutely love this series and this book in particular. If you have never read the Dark Hunters and enjoy paranormal romance you must read this (the sex is always hot too!) Despite having read this book a couple of times before, I could easily read it again and again – 5 stars. The problem is I now want to re read all of them but I have so many books waiting to be read I am not sure I can!

I then read a couple of suspense novels, the first one I picked up was Death Notice by Todd Ritter. The plot was excellent but there was no romance! Oh my god, how disappointed I was to realise the police chief and FBI agent were not going to get it on!! So while the story was good I was left feeling  decidedly dissatisfied. Of course, if romance is not your thing you will enjoy this even more – 3.5 stars.

Love You to Death by Shannon K Butcher was next and wow that was good. A romantic suspense with a seriously creepy serial killer and super hot sex between the protagonists. The plot was very good and I liked the main characters. Towards the end there was a scene which I am sure we all wished happened more and was very satisfying! When you read it you will know what I mean – 4.5 stars.

 Grete

While I wouldn’t recommend it as a means to get some time to yourself, my back throwing a massive wobbly last week and still not having recovered did mean I got some solid reading done.  Since all I could do was rest it, I was casting about for something to keep me occupied. I remembered I had Hounded by Kevin Hearne (the first book of the Iron Druid Chronicles) to read on my Kindle and a few chapters in I was hooked!  It was so amazing I finished it and immediately bought book two, then book three (you can see where this is going!), until I reached the last two books which I had kindly been sent physical copies of.

So in order, I raced through Hounded, Hexed, Hammered, Tricked, Trapped, Hunted AND the two accompanying Novellas – Two Ravens and One Crow and The Grimoire of the Lamb.  Phew!  And I still want MORE.  This is an utterly fantastic series, 5 stars all the way and one I will definitely be re-reading again.  Reviews are coming once I can sit upright for long enough 😉

Hunted actually arrived mid-week, along with another book I had been eagerly awaiting – Abaddon’s Gate by James S.A. Corey.  I dived into that yesterday and am almost finished.  Another excellent and very tense book from the Expanse series and there will be a review (also one for Caliban’s War which I re-read in anticipation and also realised I had neglected to do one the first time!).

Hoping my back will be back to what passes for normal this week, but also hoping that my thirst for reading continues unabated!

Have a good week 🙂

Our Week in Books – Week 22, 2013

 Tracey

Been a busier reading week this week, primarily my good old favourite, the historical romance.

I seem to have been on a bit of a Mills and Boon kick this week, starting with His lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls.  I really enjoyed this one and if you are a fan of regency romance definitely worth a read – 4 stars.

I also read A Very Unusual Governess by Sylvia Andrew, another regency romance involving a gentleman and a supposed governess. This book made me laugh a lot in places – 4.5 stars.

How to sin Successfully by Bronwyn Scott is also an historical romance and quite coincidentally involves a governess. No, I haven’t suddenly gone on a mission to find all the books involving governesses but they seem to have found me! This had a bit of a mystery plot surrounding it and a truly despicable villain, overall a good story – 3.5 stars.

My last Mills and Boon book this week was The replacement Wife by Caitlin Crews – shock horror, not a historical romance! I was not overly keen on this one. I would have liked a bit more background information about the hero and the ending seemed too quick and convenient. However I did finish it – 2 stars.

I then read the first two books in a series by Liz Carlyle – One Little Sin and Two Little Lies. Watch out for full reviews coming soon.

In between all this I also read Forever by Jacquelyn Frank – again look for a full review coming soon.

So seven books this week, wow possibly a record, even for me.

Grete

Well Tracey puts me to shame this week (and the last couple!).  Back flare ups, visitors, and MCM London Comic-Con (not in that order!) put paid to a lot of reading I’ve been wanting to do.  Strong pain medication also makes what I have read a little fuzzy!  Fingers crossed I will be back in action soon or I may go a little (more) nuts!

Our Week in Books – Week 19, 2013

 Tracey

Having had a very expensive trip to New York with lots of shopping I surprisingly found little time for reading! We were so exhausted from all the walking! So what have I read in the week since getting back?

I started reading Ambersley by Amy Atwell on the plane but couldn’t really get into it – probably just too tired. I left it for a bit and didn’t go back to it until much later in the week, having read other books in between. It started off a bit slow and I struggled with the concept of how I knew the book would ultimately end; that the child and grown man we see interacting together for the first third of the book, then end up together in the girl’s adulthood. I know age gaps in this period of history are not uncommon but it just felt a bit weird, and I think it’s probably another reason why I didnt finish it in one go. Having said that, when I did go back to it and we got past childhood stage, the story picked up pace and I ended up enjoying the romance. We were introduced to various characters who get their own story later on and I will probably look to read them at some point – 3 stars for me.

I was clearly in the mood for some more historical romance and picked up His Wicked Kiss by Gaelen Foley. This is the seventh book in the Knight Miscellany series and brings home the mysterious Lord Jack Knight who in previous books had only been mentioned in passing. It was another enjoyable story in the series and has a good plot and romance, although Eden Farraday did get on my nerves a bit at times. You do not need to have read the series previously to know what is going on but as we get reintroduced to the characters and their partners from those books, it is nice to have the background info. This could definitely stand alone though – 3.5 stars

And yet more historical romance! Slightly Shady by Amanda quick was my next read. A light historical romantic suspense which was a quick easy read. I again found the heroine to be a bit of a pain in the butt at times – I don’t know what is up with me this week! The suspense aspect felt more believable than the romance for me, but overall I enjoyed the story – 3 stars.

A Bite to Remember by Lynsay sands was next and was a return for me to the world of the Argeneau vampires. This book focuses on Vincent and Jackie Morrissey (a mortal PI who knows all about their world). As with all the books in this series this was very good. I always love the Argeneau men and Vincent is no exception. Marguerite, the interfering matriarch of the Argeneau’s, features heavily in this book as well and I love her and her interference. This can easily stand alone if you have not read any of the others but why start with this one – go get the first one and work your way through! – 4 stars

I am currently reading Hunter by Jacquelyn Frank and loving it, in fact I feel the need to get back to it – review to come in the next couple of weeks 🙂

 Grete

Well my reading rate has been down again but I have a good excuse – I’m in the process of giving up smoking!  It’s a very weird thing but I’m having to learn how to do things without an ever present cigarette in my hand – everything still feels a bit wrong but I’m getting there 🙂  So lets see what I’ve read over the last two weeks (including while a certain review partner was off gallivanting in NYC!)

I re-read Full Blooded by Amanda Carlson and it was as entertaining as the first time.  Jessica McClain is a great character and I love her starting story!  I went straight into book two, Hot Blooded and actually was a bit disappointed with it.  It was still enjoyable but it seemed to turn into a bit of a slog towards the end.  Full reviews are coming, anyway.

I had to wait my turn to read The City by Stella Gemmell as Tony got there first – he did an excellent review which can be found here.  I thought I might have a slightly different opinion to him as a female reader but actually, I agree with him completely – 4 stars for me too.

I then picked up a recently arrived book which had me intrigued from the moment I first heard about it – The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty.  I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it!  You can read my full review here

My fantasy nose was twitching again so I picked up The Dragon’s Path by Daniel Abraham.  This is a book I’ve been meaning to read for ages and as book three is sitting there looking at me imploringly, it was incentive enough.  Full review is coming but suffice to say it’s a fantasy on an epic scale with the sense of a full world and history behind it.  I’m half way through The King’s Blood which is book two, and is proving a little slower going but still as enjoyable.

And there we are, all up to date!  Same time next week? 😉

Our Week in Books – Week 16, 2013

 Tracey

I started the week off with Dark Demon by Christine Feehan. I’d read the first few books in the Carpathian series a while back but had to take a break after those. I really enjoyed Dark Demon in comparison to some of the earlier ones though – this Carpathian male was not as controlling or bullying and it was a much more enjoyable book as a result – 4 stars.

Having been reintroduced to the Carpathians I thought I would try another one that was even later in the series – Dark Predator. Oh dear, what a mistake. Zacarias was brutal, overpowering and a total twat! I felt his behaviour was actually the worst of any of the males in the previous books I had read and I actually felt quite uncomfortable at times. Having said that I did finish it but am now trying to decide whether to keep hold of the books I haven’t read and try them at a later date, or just get rid of them without reading! 1.5 stars – my lowest rating ever!

After that I fancied some good old fashioned sweet romance and picked up Mistletoe and Marriages – a Mills and Boon Regency double bill with stories from Annie Burrows (A Countess by Christmas) and Joanna Maitland (The Earl’s Mistletoe Bride). This definitely hit the spot and was just what I needed. Both books were very romantic with two brooding but very sexy heroes! – 4 stars.

In the historical mood again I picked up another Mills and Boon called “The Captain and the Wallflower” by Lyn Stone which was  another winner. The storyline running alongside the romance was very good and I did not want to put it down (in fact I read it in one sitting!) I love my romance anyway and this was no exception – 4 stars.

The final book of the week was Sacred Sins by Nora Roberts, one of her earlier ones from 1987, and I found it really hard to get past the fact that the hero smoked everywhere and they used a typewriter to type up police reports!!!! Having said that the story was engaging and interesting so 3 stars.

 Grete

I’ve continued my Darynda Jones kick this week and I had all good intentions of pausing between books and writing the reviews.  The trouble is, I loved them so much and Charley is such a fantastic character that I couldn’t stop and ended up reading all four books one after the other *blush*  The reviews are coming though!  I blame Darynda Jones for writing such an amazing series 😉

Next up will be Full Blooded and Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson – I read Full Blooded at the start of the year and didn’t write the review straight after (for which I am now kicking myself) so the first will be a refresher read (and since it was really good, that’s not a hardship!).

Happy Reading!

Our Week in Books – Week 15, 2013

 Tracey

Another slow week for reading this week but I still managed to fit four books in. I finished Blood Born by Linda Howard and Linda Jones – a very good start to the series and I am looking forward to the rest, full review to appear later this week – 4 stars.

I then went back to my Kindle and started Scandal of Love by Janelle Daniels, I enjoyed it but it was a bit too short for me, I am not a big fan of novellas unless they are linked to a favourite series. The story was good though, definitely more of a pure romance and not really as scandalous as the title suggests. I do enjoy a good romance though and would look to read the others in the series if I could find them very cheap or free on kindle – 3 stars.

Next I started a review copy I received from NetGalley – What a Lady needs by Kasey Michaels (Published by Harlequin), and is released 30th April.  I loved this one and a full review will follow this week – 4.5 stars

Having been nagged constantly by my husband about reducing the amount of physical books I have, I felt I should read another and picked up a romance by Kathleen Creighton – The Sheriff of Heartbreak County. While I expected an enjoyable romance I actually got a good suspense story too. A good read which kept me glued throughout and of course a wonderful romance – 4 stars

Thats all for this week folks!

 Grete

I’m still trying to get up to speed with my reading as I have so many great books begging to be read!

I finished Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan which ended up really surprising me.  Find out why in my review in the next few days 😉

Next I turned to Darynda Jones and her Charley Davidson series.  I read, loved (and reviewed) the first book at the start of the year but with my memory being what it is right now, I wanted to re-read it so the characters were fresh in my mind before I moved on to the second.  So First Grave on the Right was just as good the second time round and I finished Second Grave on the Left yesterday which was fantastic.  A review will be coming and I am going to start Third Grave Dead Ahead tonight!

That’s it from me, time to get my nose stuck in a book 😉

Our Week in Books – Week 14, 2013

TraceyTracey

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!

GreteGrete

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!! 😉
